Yes, he’s right.

In his eyes.

He knows that this represents a big problem for the financial oligarchy that he reports to.

All the financial oligarchy’s misdeeds, the crime, the wars, the lies to the public, it’s all, in the minds of the oligarchs’ minions, in the interest of “national security”.

Quick, oligarchs, get Michael Moore to side with the leaker.

This will make well-trained conservatives instinctively fall into line and oppose Moore, and by association, the leaker.

Man, this globalism is easy once you get the hang of it.

Ignorant of how America feels... it’s the DC disease.

We trust the government far, far less that we did just a few years ago. And it never was much trust to begin with. Kristol and others [peter king for example] just don’t seem to get it. For crying out loud it’s people like peter king who are supposed to prevent these abuses, not allow and encourage them!

No longer are such a number of us willing to allow gov’t to use its “good judgment and discretion” in its governance.

This wave of distrust is not getting smaller.

We wouldn’t need the NSA if we barred all Muslims from immigrating or obtaining visas, and if we enforced our immigration laws. Remember, Mohammed Atta and 5 other hijackers were STOPPED with EXPIRED VISAS prior to 9/11. All 5 were RELEASED pending a hearing. Atta didn’t show up. The others killed Americans before their hearing dates. Had Arizona’s SB1070 been in effect in FL, Atta’s immigration status would have been checked and his expired visa discovered.

Yep, the reason why EVERY SINGLE GOPe type is giving a “full throated” defense of the NSA, is because it is an absolutely essential component of an open boarders policy.

Frankly, I never trusted the gub'mnt and I worked there. The chief problem is your typical manager is not qualified to manage his way out of a toilet stall without soiling his britches.

The staff folks are remarkably honest and try to do a good job.

Bill:
Uhm no.

The IRS scandal is but one symptom of a government gone ammock.

Fact is, the IRS will feed your info to other agencies. Further, the other agencies are creating their own Db’s and they are sharing their information and conclusion.

Even someone as dim witted as I cannot help but think, if the regime used the IRS against conservatives for political gain, what is to stop them from using the NSA? Glad Bill has set me straight.

I am very curious why so many inside the beltway normally sensible folks don't see that potential for dangerous abuse by a clearly corrupt administration.

This sort of abuse is the Obama signature...not an aberration.

What went on at the IRS is SOP...that abuse would take an exponential leap forward with access to NSA data.

And not to rant on, but clearly this administration does not consider the enemy of this country to be Islamic terrorists but its own citizens...how can any NSA program NOT go awry with that kind of foundational premise.

Hey RINO Bill, I'll make it real simple for you.

The government that abused the IRS surely will abuse the NSA.

And sadly those children got the worst of both parents genetics. Matalin used to bring them to the Sunday News Shows to “show them off.”

Obama won his U.S. Senate seat by getting a Judge to OPEN or unseal confidential divorce records of his Republican opponent.

Obama has no respect for privacy.

Any Republican who does not understand this point needs to be shouted down.

“National security is different from internal matters of the government,” Kristol said. “We’re dealing with foreign threats here.”

A distinction without a difference - especially given who the President is.

Ha! He's for Obama’s snooping. He won't defend the 4th Amendment. Probably enjoyed the Tea Party being investigated by Obama’s IRS. Why do people follow this logic. He's what is wrong with the insiders/look what the Patriot Act has become/snooping and they must be trusted not to use that data against anyone of us. He should be pushing back on this abuse and out of control Obama.

Actually, that's not what anybody said. The question concerned foreign versus American origin calls ~ but what you are all forgetting is that eventually ALL scandals dovetail. Right now we are working on co-opting Watergate into the Truman kitchen cabinet, and the earlier Tea Pot Dome scandals!

Those who want to be President are doomed to suffer from repetitive stress syndrome!.

See that 'tea pot dome' ~ like in 'tea party' ~ it's not a koinkydink that 'tea' keeps showing up in the foci of the political scandals.

I think that has to do with dimensionality ~ this one would be a dimension that works only at the size and duration of sound waves ~ so when it forces lowest energy pathways doctrines onto sound waves the same old stuff keeps coming out the end no matter what went in at the beginning!

It's like Watergate related events are attracted to Debbie WASSERMAN schulz simply because of the value of the sound of a W, as in whistling in the dark.

I"m looking for some serious resignations.

Like the mistake we would have made by electing anyone but Romney?

Pray for America to Wake Up

Obama would have probably won anyway, open records or not. That was Illinois and there were other witnesses ~ people who attended the same S&M sex club in New York
