What ever happened to free speech in this country?

Regarding Obama’s bad policy relating to sequestration, “Stephen D. Abney, the chief public affairs official for the Army’s Joint Munitions Command” e-mailed soldiers AND civilian contractors and warned them to “Avoid giving an answer that might be perceived as criticism of the Commander in Chief or any political party” in the event they’re contacted by the media.

Obama stalks Republicans

Obama creepily started collecting Republicans’ e-mail addresses.

… following a previous incident in which the White House sent hundreds of unsolicited spam e-mails about Obamacare.

Update: Obama is spamming everyone— not just Republicans.

Obama doesn’t want the media to cover his vacations.

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.

Obama campaign violates 1st Amendment freedom of the press

This is not the first time a reporter has complained about restricted access to voters at an Obama campaign event.

Obama gets revenge on the anti-Islam youtube filmmaker for exercising his free speech rights

Knowing full well that the creator of an anti-Islam youtube clip would face multiple death threats, federal authorities publicly identify the filmmaker.

U.S. Embassy in Cairo is attacked

It’s ironic, considering that Obama’s first stop in the Middle East was in Cairo purportedly for ‘a new beginning’— yes, this is certainly a new beginning! Because now we have radical Islamists who have stormed the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, torn down the American flag, and replaced it with a black flag that has the words “There is no God but Allah and Mohammad is his messenger” and an emblem often used in al Qaeda propaganda.

And what is the Obama Administration’s response to these “protests” supposedly concerning a 13-minute youtube clip that offended Muslims?  “We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.” In other words: the Obama Administration sides with the radical Islamists and attacks an individual’s exercise of free speech under the 1st Amendment.

Obama controls the local media

Obama gets to choose the topics that local reporters are allowed to ask him about.

Spy Drone sent to spy on Obama critic

After this, do you still want to exercise your 1st Amendment rights?

Obama is monitoring journalists

The Department of Homeland Security is collecting personal information on “news anchors, journalists, reporters, or anyone who may use traditional and/or social media in real time to keep their audience situationally aware and informed.”

Secrecy and Closed Doors

Journalists attack White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs for refusing to answer legitimate questions and attempting to control the media.

The Obama Administration limits the media to asking ONE QUESTION.

The White House Press Secretary scolds journalists for asking ‘too many questions’ about the BP oil spill.

Hilarious: The White House holds a ‘transparency meeting’ behind closed doors.
