Obama has imposed intrusive surveillance programs affecting each and every American citizen, and plans to use thousands of surveillance drones in American skies for “public safety” purposes.
Obama’s second term agenda is focused on disarming the American people– while stockpiling millions of rounds of ammunition and more than 2,000 light-armored tanks for his Department of Homeland Security, which has labeled political conservatives and veterans in America as potential terrorists.
But this is getting more disturbing by the day.
“Recently uncovered government documents reveal that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) unmanned Predator B drone fleet has been custom designed to identify civilians carrying guns and track cell phone signals.” Senator Rand Paul felt compelled to filibuster on the floor of the U.S. Senate because he wasn’t getting straight answers on Obama’s drone program– specifically, Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder indicated that there are circumstances under which it “would be constitutional to carry out a drone strike against an American on American soil” even if that American was not an imminent danger to public safety. It’s incredible that the current U.S. Attorney General would disregard 14th Amendment Due Process rights for American citizens (a fundamental right which is ingrained in all law students across America) and didn’t object to this “slippery slope” toward tyranny. It was only after Rand Paul’s history-making 13-hour filibuster in the U.S. Senate that Obama’s Attorney General was forced to clarify that “President Obama does not have the authority to kill an American on U.S. soil in a non-combat situation.” How comforting.
Update: After Rand Paul’s filibuster, the Air Force stopped publishing statistics about U.S. drone strikes and “erased previously published statistics from its website.”
After the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya on the 9/11 anniversary, Obama was forced to change his campaign speeches by taking out the false claim that al-Qaeda was “on the run.” Subsequently, in January 2013, 30 hostages were killed “when Algerian forces stormed a desert gas plant in a bid to free many dozens of Western and local captives” from Islamic terrorists linked to al-Qaeda. Seven Americans were among the hostages, and three of the dead hostages were Americans. Contrast this to what a real leader– Ronald Reagan– accomplished in regard to the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979:
It turns out that even prior to the Algerian hostage crisis, Obama was lying to the American people when he claimed that al-Qaeda was “on the run”: “The U.S.-led military coalition in Afghanistan incorrectly reported a decline in Taliban attacks last year, and officials said Tuesday that there was actually no change in the number of attacks on international troops from 2011 to 2012.”
Disturbingly, some of the same Islamic terrorists who took hostages in Algeria also participated in the terrorist attack that killed 4 Americans and destroyed the U.S. Consulate in Libya just a few months beforehand.
The Obama Administration’s corruption is staggering. After overlooking the misuse of stimulus funds for Obama’s political cronies and the nomination of political donors for influential public positions (including John Kerry), even MSNBC is stunned: “MSNBC’s Chuck Todd criticized Monday the new fundraising efforts of President Obama’s dark money group, Organizing for Action, calling a scheme for high donors to meet regularly with Obama “the definition of selling access.” Todd was describing the quarterly meetings that will be enjoyed by OFA’s $500,000 donors.” Disturbingly, “Giving or raising $500,000 or more puts donors on a national advisory board for Mr. Obama’s group and the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White House.”
Hilariously, “the organization’s leadership has been courting corporate donors” and Chuck Todd has expressed confusion over the fact that Obama (while campaigning) said he believed that “money has a strangle hold over the entire political system.”
And it gets funnier: White House Press Secretary Jay Carney ran away from the podium while reporters were still questioning him about this issue, after failing “to defend this arrangement” and “implausibly stating that the Obama group is somehow not related to Obama.”
Obama’s unconstitutional/corrupt anti-gun crusade has now reached a whole new level: “Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) accused Obama of trying to make support for his position look stronger than it really is by flooding Twitter with messages from people who don’t exist… “Obama’s anti-gun campaign is a fraud,” Stockman said. “Obama’s supporters are panicking and willing to do anything to create the appearance of popular support, even if it means trying to defraud Congress”… Stockman said that in response to Obama’s call for people to tweet their congressman in support of gun control legislation, he received just 16 tweets. But he said all of these messages were identical, and that a closer look at them revealed that only six were from real people. “The other 10 are fake, computer-generated spambots,” his office said in a press release. As evidence, he said these 10 tweets use default graphics and names, and have not engaged in any interaction with other people. Two of the tweets were sent at nearly the same time, and both follow just one person: Brad Schenck, Obama’s former digital strategist.”
Update: Obama also sent Michelle Obama to ABC News to falsely claim that a 15-year-old girl who was killed in Chicago after performing during the inauguration was shot with an ‘automatic weapon’– in fact, Chicago police reported that it was a handgun. Obama has been pushing for new restrictions on semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines, and wants America to believe that his policy will eliminate gun violence– but the truth is that gun control is a complicated issue, and Obama’s anti-gun crusade is hypocritical and unconstitutional.
“Robert Gibbs, President Barack Obama’s former press secretary, says that he was once instructed by the White House not to acknowledge the administration’s use of drones. “When I went through the process of becoming press secretary, one of the first things they told me was, you’re not even to acknowledge the drone program,” Gibbs said on MSNBC’s “Up With Chris Hayes” on Sunday. “You’re not even to discuss that it exists.””
Gibbs acknowledged the obvious: “I think what the president has seen is, our denial of the existence of the program when it’s obviously happening undermines people’s confidence overall in the decisions that their government makes.”
Update: Wait, why isn’t Nancy Pelosi speaking out about this? A few years ago, the CIA confirmed that Pelosi lied to the media when she claimed the Bush Administration didn’t brief her about enhanced interrogation techniques used against al-Qaeda prisoners. Now, she would be able to legitimately claim that the Obama Administration didn’t brief her about drone strikes on al-Qaeda terrorists– but being the two-faced scumbag politician that she is, Pelosi is silent.
The mainstream media still loves Obama, although they can’t hide their frustration about his lack of transparency. Journalists are “expressing frustration over… lack of access this weekend to President Obama, who was on a golfing vacation in Florida.” This statement was released:
“Speaking on behalf of the White House Correspondents Association, I can say a broad cross section of our members from print, radio, online and TV have today expressed extreme frustration to me about having absolutely no access to the President of the United States this entire weekend… There is a very simple but important principle we will continue to fight for today and in the days ahead: transparency.”
Obama’s self-proclaimed “most transparent administration in history” (a laughable claim) needs to hide the fact that Obama is taking excessive luxurious vacations.
Update: Obama’s golfing vacation in Florida with Tiger Woods this past weekend cost American taxpayers a whopping $989,207.
After we learned that the Obama Administration lied to the American people about the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya and initiated a cover-up to help Obama win re-election, we’ve been informed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won’t be testifying about the incident since she’s vaguely ‘ill.’
Obama Administration secretly grants government power to store private information about innocent Americans
“In a secret government agreement granted without approval or debate from lawmakers, the U.S. attorney general recently gave the National Counterterrorism Center sweeping new powers to store dossiers on U.S. citizens, even if they are not suspected of a crime.” So, it isn’t just that Obama doesn’t care about the Constitution’s separation of powers— he’s also made it really clear that he wants to violate your civil liberties more than the Bush Administration EVER did.
Obama wrongfully took credit for killing Osama bin Laden and lied to the American people about his “gutsy call” and the bin Laden raid. Now, it’s been revealed that a senior Defense Department official in the Obama Administration leaked classified information to the filmmakers of “Zero Dark Thirty” (a film about the hunt for Osama bin Laden) in an effort to ensure Obama’s re-election.
Despite the fact that Susan Rice (the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. under Obama) lied to the American people by stating that the Benghazi attack was a “spontaneous mob reaction” instead of a terror attack, Obama wants her to be the new Secretary of State. Furthermore, according to the White House Press Secretary, Obama “is not particularly concerned” about whether Susan Rice misled the American people— which makes sense, since the evidence shows it was the Obama Administration that altered the CIA’s talking points about the Benghazi attack to help Obama win re-election. Susan Rice was just doing her “job” in helping Obama lie to the American people by getting false talking points out to the media. Of course Obama isn’t “concerned”– he wants to reward her with a cabinet position!
