” - - - Democratic senator Ron Wyden asked James Clapper, the director of national intelligence: “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?”

“No sir,” replied Clapper. - - - “

Back in the Day, this was called a “a bald-faced lie.”

Now that we are in a Brave New World, is this now called “double-speak?”

That’s what I said. Have to redo my map skills :).

However, many parts of the world that should have had eartrumpets hovering all over their lands *are* remarkably green.

Some parts of the world are simply not modern enough for serious electronic communications. An old postal definition of what it means to be a third world country is that when a letter comes in with your name on it they send a messenger out to deliver it to you personally.

Such places exist! There are even places with electricity scheduled weekly for a good 15 minutes.

The federal government’s foreign and domestic spying has really proven itself:

It worked so well on stopping Shoe Bomber, Richard Reid before he tried to blow up an airliner full of people flying over the Atlantic ocean.

And it enabled the federal government to stop muslim terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan before he slaughtered 13 people and wounded another 28 at Ft. Hood.

It uncovered the Benghazi attacks before the muslim crazies tortured and killed the Ambassador and killed four other Americans.

And it led to the capture of Boston Bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev before they killed 4 people and maimed almost 300 more.

And don’t forget how it uncovered the London muslim jihadi plot before the crazies hacked British soldier, Lee Rigby, to death with machetes on the streets of London in broad daylight.

/sarcasm off

The truth is that our own government is more interested in monitoring and controlling American citizens than fighting muslim terrorism.

Anyway - The War On Terror has been won and is now over.

Obama himself has declared it to be so.

I believe the new terrorist is called a patriot. The new definition apllies to citizens who dare speak out against the administration and this government. That is the new amerika as the forefathers roll in their graves.

Meanwhile another amnesty vote in the Senate this afternoon.

They’re giving us bread and circuses—and Mexicans.

That is the new amerika as the forefathers roll in their graves.

When Tamerlan Tsarnaev travelled to Russia for terrorist training, and while he and his brother, Dzhokhar, were
building pressure cooker bombs and planning the mass murder of innocent Americans, Barack Obama's and Janet
Napolitano's Homeland Security called patriots "terrorist threats" and were spying on guys driving pick-ups like this.

"After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay."

The Guardian has acquired top-secret documents about the NSA datamining tool, called Boundless Informant...

Nothing Mordor-on-the-Potomac touches has any modicum of confidentiality, let alone secrecy.

it’s driving me nuts how now the media and the talking heads and sheep of this country are attacking this guy and yet cannot state one thing he has done to hurt the country but they call him a traitor and now are all about attacking the guy instead of looking at an out of control Orwell Govt run by obama.

Obama is making an enemy list you dopes, he is taking all this info and will store it and still some frigging dopes say they have no problem because they do nothing wrong

Sure that works but don’t forget to put in the hot button search words to burn the ears of the eavedropper: stuff like dynomite, C4, explosives, jihad, koran, ricin, molotov cocktail, boobytrap, airline, yemen, Saudi Fag-—you can work up your own list. Shouldn’t take much to get you a call?

Turns out Jimmie is conservative and pretty smart. Who would have thought based on his TV character?

Yup, I saw that too.

Rudy “Wink-Wink” Gee-Whiz is a typical RINO:

“Boys will be Boys, Politicians will be Politicians, and that is why politics is so GREAT: it never changes!”

Contrast Rudy Gee-Whiz and Sen. Ted Cruz to grasp how out of touch with reality Rudy and his RINOs are.

What if this administration orchestrated “Snowdens NSA Leak” for the purpose of evoking just the reactions being displayed by at least half the US public? Outrage over the spying and invasion of privacy.

Patriot Act gets called into question.Hang on I’m getting there...we beg them to stop spying on us.

The Senate now wants to review the Patriot Act ect...modifies or eliminates certain elements making it fairly innoculous regarding domestic issues.

What if by doing this the administration opens the door really wide enabling a attack that dwarfs 9/11 and blames it those who opposed the NSA spying.What if “he” never leaves....
