Prez wants to spy on US
Boston Herald, by Michael Graham

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/14/2012 5:41:16 AM

How many “Big Brother Fascists” does it take to spy on every American citizen? None — if it’s Barack Obama. I remember the good old days when “goose-stepping” George W. Bush was in office, and you couldn’t tune in MSNBC for more than an hour at a time without the “F” word being thrown at him (no — not that “F” word — but they were thinking it). Today The Wall Street Journal reports that President Obama has authorized a massive, intrusive search into the lives of virtually every American — and it’s greeted with a yawn.

Comments:
The Herald has fixed its loading problem. All is now well.

Whats the difference between the Third Reich, the Soviet Union, and the US government? The first two never pretended their citizens were free.

A very alarming article. I guess PINO has to give all those federal employees something to do other than go on Twitter.

When you think about it, Obama can get done anything he wants using his Agencies and Executive Orders. He doesn´t need Congress.

Do members of Congress even know about this? It´s yet another outrageous invasion of privacy and an unconstitutional power grab. If we keep letting this Administration get away with this kind of thing, we will get exactly what we deserve for being apathetic.

It´s time for action. Contact your Reps in Congress, contact talk show hosts, contact sympthetic TV news shows.

Notice they´re doing this when they think people are too busy with holiday plans to notice.

My guess is they´re trying to build a profile on everybody to figure out who´s on board for a communist takeover and who isn´t.

Obviously if you own a legal firearm,they know where you live.There´s been record sales of guns and ammo since Obama got elected. The conventional explanation is they´re panic buying because new gun control might be coming.I don´t buy that,people are afraid of jack booted thugs invading their homes or office.


The left micro targeted voters in this last election compiling some sort of dossier on them. Some was probably simple as race. But what they really want to know is what kind of numbers they´re looking at if there was a huge right wing rebellion.They´re not worried about catching criminals,drug running or human trafficking etc. but people who pose a threat to their takeover of the government and industries in the country.

Obama´s kidding himself if he thinks he can get rid of the majority of white people in this country and still have it operate. People that voted for him don´t want truck driving jobs but a freeloader check.

i don´t think Obama is ready to implement his grand scheme yet and he needs some justification for doing it.Then again,stonewalling on the fiscal cliff might be a door opener.He can claim traditional government is outdated and dysfunctional.

When Pres. Bush was in office he wanted certain phone lines tapped, with specific criteria that they be calling to such places as pakistan, afghanistan, etc. Not a general listening to everyone, just people our intel said were suspicious. The people in MA, politicians and the regular people, were infuriated. At that exact same time, the politicians/police in Boston ordered microphones installed in certain neighborhoods (minorities, specifically black)in order for the police to "hear" gunshots. The people were fine with that and later, with the police adding cameras watching the people in these neighborhoods. Liberals truly are the "low-information"(morons) of the universe.

Absolutely! If white people disappeared from this country tomorrow, they would be burning the furniture in the skyscrapers for heat within two weeks.

Edinburg, Texas There’s a small crowd munching on tacos and tortilla chips here at El Pato, a local chain restaurant in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley. We’re a short drive from the Mexican border, in a part of the state that’s nearly 90 percent Hispanic. The folks here are noticeably whiter (or more Anglo, as Texans would say) than that, but plenty of Hispanics have shown up, too. Fifty-six-year-old Greg Abbott, the powerful attorney general and Republican nominee for governor, is discussing how years of incredible economic growth are transforming Texas. He makes sure to mention the state’s fastest-growing demographic group. “People

The radical faction of the LGBT community is now getting the same outrage it had directed toward former Mozilla chairman Brendan Eich earlier this week over a campaign contribution, which led to his departure. Now the company is getting flak over Eich’s forced resignation from a company he helped co-found. That decision angered many of Mozilla’s customers, and they didn’t hold back on their criticism, according to The Daily Caller, which reported: The decision to remove the man who invented the web scripting language JavaScipt did not sit well with many customers — many of them pelted Mozilla’s website with a surge

PHILADELPHIA— Sam Robinson said it´s been about 15 years since he last played the videogame Tetris on a Game Boy. On Saturday night, he played it on the side of a skyscraper. Robinson, 30, was among the hundreds of Tetris fans who had a little fun Saturday with a big version of the classic video game on the side of the 29-story Cira Centre in downtown Philadelphia. "It has been probably 15 years since I played Tetris last on a Game Boy, and it´s much different playing on the side of building that´s a half-mile away," the city resident said.

In 2004, UPS announced a new policy for its drivers: the right way to get to any destination was to avoid left-hand turns. Even if that means following this route that a UPS driver described to an incredulous press member: "We´re gonna make a right turn onto 135th to Western. We´ll make another right on Western down to 139th. Righ turn on 139th and go down to the end of the block and we´ll make another right turn."

A half-dozen years ago, Brendan Eich donated $1,000 to the campaign for Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that set out to ban same-sex marriage. It passed with 52 percent of the vote, but was later overturned by the courts. (Snip)Calls for his ouster were premised on the notion that all support for Proposition 8 was hateful, and that a CEO should be judged not just by his or her conduct in the professional realm, but also by political causes he or she supports as a private citizen. If that attitude spreads, it will damage our society.

Family of Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370´s

KUALA LUMPUR—A family member of the captain of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 said the family is frustrated with the suspicion surrounding the pilot´s motives and character. Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah, with over 18,000 hours of flying time, commanded Flight 370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8 when it disappeared with 239 passengers and crew aboard. Fariq Abdul Hamid was the second officer. Investigators looking into the plane´s disappearance have focused on the pilot, co-pilot and crew members but haven´t ruled out the possibility that one or more passengers were involved, people familiar with the investigation said Friday.

A New Biography Shows That ‘John

“Truly, this man was the son of God.” Thus speaks a Roman centurion at the end of George Stevens’s inaptly named The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965). It’s a line that always gets a big laugh, partly because the idea of anything so irreligious as Hollywood hokum commenting on the provenance of Jesus Christ is axiomatically funny, but mostly because the centurion is played by John Wayne, a movie star who might have known a son of a gun when he saw one, but who patently knew precious little else. Except, one learns from Scott Eyman’s exhaustive new biography, John

When future generations come to look back on the alarm over global warming that seized the world towards the end of the 20th century, much will puzzle them as to how such a scare could have arisen. They will wonder why there was such a panic over a 0.4 per cent rise in global temperatures between 1975 and 1998, when similar rises between 1860 and 1880 and 1910 and 1940 had given no cause for concern. They will see these modest rises as just part of a general warming that began at the start of the 19th century, as the

What the Former Soviet States

With no evidence that Russia has any plans to withdraw its troops from the border of Ukraine, some former Soviet states are worried about their own regional security. Farther east, other countries, closely aligned with Moscow rather than the West, say they are trying to ease tensions. And several central Asian states have responded by simply staying silent. The United States and NATO announced this week that they are boosting military support in the Baltic region, which is on especially high alert. Moscow has long complained about Russians´ rights there, and its takeover of Crimea suggests it may be willing to

Reginald Clarke is someone Obamacare was designed to help. The 55-year-old, who was homeless for a time, now has an apartment in Gardena and a street-cleaning job that pays him $14,000 a year. He hadn´t visited a doctor in four or five years. Then, last fall, his girlfriend told him he would be eligible for Medi-Cal starting Jan. 1. "I was excited. I could go get a physical," he said. "There are a few things I need." But joy turned to exasperation when Clarke´s application, filed in December, was mistakenly rejected — and then seemed to disappear from county and state computer systems. By law,

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated.

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools.
