Is President Obama “Big Brother”?
Maybe I missed something. The Obama administration got an unidentified federal judge to grant a secret, nonspecific, open-ended search warrant on the public at large, without any notification to or qualification of a warrant concerning the subject of the investigation. This includes the photographing of all U.S. mail, all personal electronic media from phone calls to email, twitter and anything of that nature, including those millions of free “Obama Phones”. Then the secret FISA Courts, that determine a person’s guilt, are closed to everybody except the few, hand selected prosecuting attorneys and a couple of non-disclosed judges. After all these violations to the person under suspicion’s Constitutional Rights, private citizen Joe Public is informed that he has the burden of proof while being denied access to the dubious and illegally accumulated evidence by which he was deemed guilty of an unspecified crime.
In an attempt to appease those that question the NSA’s tactics and legality, President Obama appoints Mr. Clapper, head of the NSA, to investigate to see if there were any improprieties during the “Harvesting of data” in case it might be needed in the future.
With all this in play, and finally being exposed, the President has the unmitigated gall to smugly have an interview with a reporter that is known to support and help spin the news regularly to blind the public of what this administration is really doing. While doing the interview, the president blithely says that, “… This is the most transparent administration our country has ever had.”
If I remember correctly, I heard that line before during the 1950’s and 60’s from Joseph Stalin and Nikita Khrushchev.
