Naive Obama Administration Caught In Legal Trap By Spying On Americans

Published by at 8:52 am under All General Discussions,FISA-NSA

It is interesting around DC when the next round of neophytes come into town pretending to be Gods. I vaguely remember Reagan’s crowd, they seemed confident but professional. The administration of Bush the Elder was just a continuation of Reagan’s teams and goals so there was an unusually long period where things did not change much.

Then came the partying Clintons. They enjoyed the trappings of power. When not partying they were pushing people around like serfs. They stumbled and bumbled and pretty much cost the Democrat Party their near-century long hold on Congress. When Bush the Younger took over he was actually an experienced hand – he had been in DC with his father. He brought on experienced people. The tone of the parties changed and became fewer and barbecues flourished. But the bumbling and fumbling died down.

But then came smooth PR man President Obama, and his young team of neophytes. The Dems don’t want to admit this, but these guys have bumbled and fumbled to a level never before seen. That is why their agenda is dying and their support crashing and the heat is rising.

A great example of this is how team Obama has caught themselves in a legal trap with their ‘fishy’ request on information about opposition to their health care debacle:

“The White House is in bit of a conundrum because of this privacy statute that prohibits the White House from collecting data and storing it on people who disagree with it,” Judge Andrew Napolitano, a FOX News analyst, said Friday. 

“There’s also a statute that requires the White House to retain all communications that it receives. It can’t try to rewrite history by pretending it didn’t receive anything,” he said.

“If the White House deletes anything, it violates one statute. If the White House collects data on the free speech, it violates another statute.”

And if they do both, you get the classic DC cover up and call for congressional investigations. In this case team Obama tried to intimidate Americans expressing free speech about their concerns about the liberal crazy scheme on health care. By attempting to collect data on Americans from nosy and arrogant Americans willing to break this nation’s laws in a lost cause, Obama has created the ground swell of support for the investigations!

Remember when liberals all cried foul because they were making up wild scenarios about President Bush tapping their lines (and listening to their inane babble) instead of the NSA monitoring terrorists overseas and providing leads to the FBI when they contacted someone in the US? Remember the drama queen outrage of invasion of privacy from the lunatic left?

And now Obama has asked for those same lunatics to turn over evidence of opposition to Obamacare to the feds – an open and clear effort to snoop on Americans! The left truly is suffering from major mental issues to think that the METHOD of collecting information is what makes it legal or illegal, verses what the information is being collected for. In the case of Bush it was to stop any future 9-11s. In the case of team Obama it was to harass citizens.

Seems the nightmares of the far left have come true – Big Brother is watching and using spies hidden among us. Spies who are not bound by the processes of law enforcement – nor trained in the rules protecting our rights. Obama went to the angry left mob since no real law enforcement entity would try such a foolish and illegal stunt.

  1. [...] A Compliant Media Allows Outrage and Scandal from the Obama White House The White House sets up a program to report people for exercising their free speech rights. Where is the ACLU? Now, the White House could be in legal trouble. [...]

    LBJ and Carter became dead posts during their terms in office, the American people just refused to care or listen to what they said or did, their party abandoned them as if they were infected with a plague and they really had no legacy. Clinton was lucky that the 1994 Republicans came into power. He was smart enough and not arrogant to adopt their agenda as his own, but as President he has no historical legacy except the negative things he did in office.
    Obama’s disdain to those who disagree with him, and his arrogance has open the eyes to middle America, he does not act presidential and probably is becoming a dead post as LBJ and Carter had, but may have a legacy as the President who woke up middle America to the fact that “we the people” are in charge and not our elected officals.

    I hope your right!
    The left, Obama, and their allies, the leftist mainstream media, seem bent on forcing their screwed up policies on the overwhelmingly disapproving majority ie. Cap and Trade and HealthScare.

    The community organizer (Presidente Pinnochio) is bent on forcing upon America, through his vocal organizing of a militant minority, policies which would destroy this country and its prosperity for generations.
    This could get ugly!
    The people must take their Government back and force Term Limits upon the Three branches of government so that they may never again so consolidate their power.
    Many of these fossils in the House and Senate would be dead by now had they been under gov’t imposed ObamaCare as his Qauly care calculations would have surely shown them to be too worthless to society at their ages to merit life saving measures.
    Ted Kenedy, Robert Bryd, Mad Man Murtha, John Dingell (Michigan), Tom Harkin, too many others to mention would be gone!
