A Shield Law? Barack Obama Is Desperate

In what was either terrible timing or an incredibly lame attempt at damage control, the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama advocated this week on behalf of a media shield law that would ostensibly protect reporters from having to reveal their sources. Hold on … Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha … HA! Why are…

In what was either terrible timing or an incredibly lame attempt at damage control, the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama advocated this week on behalf of a media shield law that would ostensibly protect reporters from having to reveal their sources.

Hold on …

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha … HA!

Why are we laughing? Because shield laws don’t mean shit if the government can simply take the information it wants without asking – which is exactly what Obama’s Justice Department did to the Associated Press.

Seriously … where was the “shield” when federal agents secretly made off with two months of phone records from reporters and editors working in the wire service’s Washington, New York and Hartford, Connecticut offices.

Anyway, according to The New York Times Obama’s legislative liaison to the U.S. Senate called liberal Senator Charles Schumer (D-New York) and asked him to “revive” the shield law earlier this week – attempting to get a bill moving which was first introduced in 2009 but never made it to the Senate floor.

How transparently shameless and self-serving …

Yet the Liberal-Tarians, FITS included… tell us Bush and Romney are the same as Obama….and FITS actually bashes Bush and Romney, more than he does Obama…

If Bush or Romney would have perpetuated one-fourth of the crap Obama has pulled just this week, the media, FITS, and the democrats would be marching in the streets in a lynch mob…

And that’s not even including Fast and Furious, data manipulation and all the voter fraud…

We have Two Americas: one where FITS, the media and the justice system let corrupt and filthy liberals walk free…yet Republicans are attacked and slandered for trying to uphold the law and Constitution…

Speaking of lynching, check out this book by John Hammond Moore (USC Carolina Press) (2008)—–

“Carnival of Blood: Dueling, Lynching, and Murder in South Carolina, 1880 – 1920”

OHolder is O’Bama’s Heinrich Himmler (head of the Gestapo).

The SS was under the control of the Gestapo controlled by Adolph Hitler, so the Justice Dept would be the Gestapo and the IRS would be O’s SS.

O what have we wrought with these people in charge of OUR Government?

The night of the “long knives” (when Hitler had the Gestapo and SS assinate his ALL of his opposition) cannot be far off!

I thought journalists already had some means of protection regarding not having to divulge sources?

Obama should kill the Patriot Act if he cares about privacy.

If Obama is so incompetent how did he manage to kick the republicans ass twice in a row.

Guess republicans must even be worse. The voters made the right choice and are not fooled by republicans breathless conspiracy theories.

Dems and Repubs are big money monkeys. How else can you explain bailouts, tax cuts, big windfall profits for CEO’s that LOSE money. Free markets? Shit! Dream on…with regulations as they are, you would have to pay millions just to be IN the fucking market.
