This week’s big report in The Washington Post detailing thousands of privacy violations associated with the federal government’s domestic spying program was truly shocking … assuming you haven’t been paying attention.

Two-and-a-half weeks ago the government’s super-secret computer monitoring program was exposed – as well as a chilling example of how it is being abused.

Accordingly, the Post‘s revelation that the National Security Agency (NSA) “has broken privacy rules or overstepped its legal authority thousands of times each year since Congress granted the agency broad new powers in 2008” is hardly surprising. It is, however, further proof that U.S. President Barack Obama was lying through his teeth when he said (as recently as last week) that “the program currently is not being abused.”

Really?

Previously, Obama sought to assure Americans regarding the scope and purpose of the domestic spying program by saying “nobody’s listening to your phone calls” and “federal judges are overseeing the entire program throughout.”

Both of those claims have turned out to be patently false …

Obama isn’t the only one who has lied to the public about the program. Last month U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers (RINO-Michigan), the chairman of the House intelligence committee, told CBS there were “zero privacy violations” in the NSA snooping program.

Of course in Rogers’ defense, it appears as though some members of Congress have been misled by the NSA regarding the true nature of its programs.

Either way, we are dealing with a totally unacceptable situation …

The government has no right to store our private phone conversations, phone logs, emails, text messages, social media posts, web search histories, credit card purchases, video chats … or any other digital data we produce over the course of our daily lives. And if it wants to snoop on us, it must first obtain a warrant based on probable cause.

These are fundamental liberties people … yet they are being trampled on by our elected officials.

Enough is enough …

Saw the headline, “liar, liar” and was sure this was about Haley; nope, Obama.
Well, they really are one in the same, liars, incompetent, disengaged, self serving, narcissistic, unethical, corrupt and immoral. Yep, one in the same.

…as was Bush II, Clinton, Bush I, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, Johnson… look at all of these administrations and we will find many instances of deception and power brokering. This isn’t new and Obama won’t be the last of US Presidents to use deceit as a means of communication… presidents are puppets, they hold NO power…

A politician helped himself to a Bible just about every Sunday, taking it home after the service. The minister didn’t mind because the politician was a liar, and the minister hoped that some of the truth of the Bible would rub off on him. Costs started to mount, so after a service one Sunday, the minister asked the politician point blank, “Have you been taking the Good Book from us?”

The politician replied, “No, Reverend, and I’ll swear to that on a stack of Bibles!”

“No punishment for lying.” You are oh so correct!
They are ALL pathological liars and we are fools for continuing to re-elect them!
Look right here in SC.
We DO NOT punish them for lying, corruption, adultery, cheating, stealing, nor immorality, nor lack of ethics.
Look at Chief Justice Toal, Chief Keel, Gov Haley, the Peelers, Richard Eckstrom, Speaker Bobby Harrell, former speaker David Wilkins, Governors Sanford, Haley, Beasley, former Lt Governors Bauer, Peeler, etc. All guilty of many, many indescretions, lies, deceptions, moral and ethical lapses.

Mark my word 18 August, 2013, Obama will cost many American lives in the future with his lack of Foreign Policy and the wasted fu#$s (John Kerry, Susan Rice, etc) he has appointed to carry out his International A$$ Kissing and apologies for all that we have done world wide.
The USA has no standing in the world thanks to the Obama administration.
