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 nominating an anti-Israel pro-terrorist Defense Secretary, Obama will nominate current White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew as the new Treasury Secretary (can it be any more obvious that Obama’s nominations are political favors?).
In response, the top Republican in the Senate Budget Committee says: “Jack Lew must never be Secretary of Treasury… His testimony before the Senate Budget Committee less than two years ago was so outrageous and false that it alone disqualifies… To ‘look the American people in the eye’ and make such a statement remains the most direct and important false assertion during my entire time in Washington.”
Democrats want to read your e-mails without a warrant, and have been collecting personal information about you.
As we all know, the Democrats are the party of “civil liberties”:
The Democrat-controlled Senate has proposed a law that will allow the federal government to read your e-mails without a search warrant.
In case that didn’t invade your privacy enough, Obama has taken care to compile a “vast campaign database” that “includes information on voters’ magazine subscriptions, car registrations, housing values and hunting licenses, along with scores estimating how likely they were to cast ballots for his reelection.” It isn’t just Obama– the Democratic Party itself is now pushing to expand the scope of this “vast campaign database” for future elections.
Democrats in Congress with nothing but contempt for the limits on federal power explicitly set forth in the U.S. Constitution:
Tragically, Obamacare got passed only because Democrats in Congress got bribed:
The “Louisiana Purchase” of Senator Mary Landrieu and the “Cornhusker Kickback” for Senator Ben Nelson are only two of these notorious backroom deals.
