FEDS TERRORIZE AMERICAN CITIZENS:ILLEGAL MURDERERS (ETC)UNLEASHED ON PUBLIC! Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

It is impossible to wrap one’s head around the criminal-bent actions perpetrated under Obama Inc, unless one is of like-mind. But let’s get this factoid settled: the POTUS, whoever holds office, is sworn to protect the public from harm and there is no getting around this obligation. Case closed. Or, so you would think.

In the main, there is every reason to believe (and no reason not to) that the current despoiler of the People’s House is running a criminal operation, not unlike Al Capone back in the day. A regime which runs wild, hell bent on bringing down “Amerika”, will stop at nothing to achieve its goals.

Such is the case within every realm of their operations, but some actions stand head and shoulders above the rest. From gun running, resulting in many murders, due to “fast and furious”; to the slaughter of Americans via Benghazigate; to IRSgate, and the release of Taliban terror kingpins, where does letting loose illegal criminal aliens factor in? Everywhere.

Factor One: 

Just consider the ramifications of not only “legalizing” millions of illegals, but the fact that the Lawbreaker-in-Chief honors one of its chief proponents, herself a felon!

Factor Two:

In this regard, what are the chances of reining in said leadership, when they not only abet illegal aliens but their champions too? H E L L O….

Factor Three:

But never mind, the IRS rewards and pays illegals for their lawbreaking, yet hounds patriots for their national honor. What the hell is going on? Oh yes, Obama Inc. has the nation in its vise-grip.

Factor Four:

Consequentially, who other than a renegade POTUS would preside over an out of control DHS? You know, the very same agency tasked with securing the national interest, yet losing ! illegals under their charge!

Factor Five:

As a result, the sham of immigration “reform” is exposed for what it is; illegals are “koshered” and DHS is caught – with its pants down – ferrying illegals to U.S. shores!

Factor Six:

Exactly how much more criminal does it get, then when Feds actually DUMP illegals at bus stops across Texas, Arizona and elsewhere? Why would they do this? 


Alas, here they go again…..but before you read on, a MUST view video is embedded within!

IF Barack HUSSEIN Obama is not guilty of GRAVE dereliction of duty…or worse, then…..

Feds Released Hundreds of Immigrant Murderers, Drunken Drivers, Sex-Crimes Convicts

Immigration officials knowingly released dozens of murderers and thousands of drunken drivers back into the U.S. in 2013, according to Obama administration statistics that could undercut the president’s argument that he is trying to focus on the most serious criminals in his immigration enforcement.

Among the 36,000 immigrants whom U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released from custody last year there were 116 with convictions for homicide, 43 for negligent manslaughter, 14 for voluntary manslaughter and one with a conviction classified by ICE as “homicide-willful kill-public official-gun.”

The immigrants were in deportation proceedings, meaning ICE was trying to remove them from the country and could have held them in detention but released them anyway, according to the Center for Immigration Studies, which published the numbers Monday. The Washington Times also obtained the data.

“This would be considered the worst prison break in American history, except it was sanctioned by the president and perpetrated by our own immigration officials,” said Rep. Lamar Smith, Texas Republican. “The administration’s actions are outrageous. They willfully and knowingly put the interests of criminal immigrants before the safety and security of the American people.”

The data raised thorny questions about how the government decides which immigrants to detain and which it will release as they await court hearings and final action on deportation.

Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies, said the numbers undercut the Obama administration’s argument that it is trying to keep its enforcement efforts targeted at dangerous criminals.

“We keep hearing from the administration that they are focused like a laser on enforcement against the worst of the worst, convicted criminals, as their top priority. On the other hand, they are releasing, at a rate of about 100 a day, aliens from their custody with criminal convictions, and many of them are serious criminal convictions,” she said.

In a statement, ICE said many of those it released were subject to electronic monitoring, posting bond or having to check in with officers.

In other cases, the agency was required to release immigrants because of court decisions, including a 2001 Supreme Court ruling that found immigrants whose home countries refused to take them back could not be held for more than six months.ICE said 75 percent of the convicted murderers released in 2013 were considered “mandatory releases” in compliance with court decisions.

“Others, typically those with less serious offenses, were released as a discretionary matter after career law enforcement officers made a judgment regarding the priority of holding the individual, given ICE’s resources, and prioritizing the detention and removal of individuals who pose a risk to public safety or national security,” ICE said.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson will have to answer questions.

Mr. Goodlatte and Mr. Smith asked ICE for the release numbers but said the agency never turned them over.

“These criminals should be locked up, not roaming our streets,” the lawmakers said.

ICE has told Congress it doesn’t need to hold as many immigrants in detention. In its budget request this year, ICE asked that Congress fund slightly more than 30,500 detention beds a day, down from the 34,000 set in current law.

“This funding level of beds will allow ICE to detain the current mandatory population, as well as the higher-risk, non-mandatory detainees,” ICE Deputy Director Daniel Ragsdale testified in March.

Ms. Vaughan said that rings hollow if the administration is releasing murderers and other serious criminals even with 34,000 detention beds.

The 36,007 criminal aliens counted in the data had more than 87,000 convictions among them: 15,635 for drunken driving, 9,187 for what ICE labeled “dangerous drugs,” 2,691 for assault, 1,724 for weapons offenses and 303 for “flight escape” — a category that would seem to make them bad candidates for release.

The immigrants are in addition to the 68,000 other immigrants that ICE officers came across but didn’t put into deportation proceedings.

ICE came under fire last year for releasing thousands of immigrants and blaming it on the sequester budget cuts. Among those released were 622 criminals, including 24 with repeated felony convictions so bad that the administration had to go recapture them.

Officials later said it wasn’t the sequester, but rather the regular budget process that caused them to have to release the immigrants. They said they had been running above the 34,000 detention level for too long and would have had to cut detention to average out the numbers.

Truth is indeed stranger than fiction. Similarly, as is said, there are “a lot of ways to skin a cat”. So if truthfulness is the sine qua non, the bottom line, what else can one conclude from the very same words uttered by Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s alter ego, Valerie Jarrett?

President Barack Obama’s top adviser and confidant told a group of global elites on Thursday in Las Vegas, Nevada that House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has made a commitment to the White House to try to pass amnesty legislation this year.

After hailing the Senate’s amnesty bill that the Congressional Budget Office determined would lower the wages of American workers, Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s senior advisor, told attendees at the yearly invitation-only SkyBridge Alternatives Conference that Boehner would help the White House make a push get immigration reform enacted in the next three months. 

“I think we have a window this summer, between now and August, to get something done,” Jarrett said, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “We have a commitment from Speaker Boehner, who’s very frustrated with his caucus.”

Addressing attendees at an event described as conference where “investors and elite political donors” along with “hedge fund managers, political and business leaders and celebrities” can “speak freely,” Jarrett said that the Senate’s bill would pass in the House if Republicans brought it to the floor. 

Jarrett, echoing the sentiments of Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), who has said that Democrats would want a piecemeal approach to immigration reform if they get all of the pieces of the Senate bill, said that there were “a lot of ways to skin a cat” and that there would be “mounting pressure” on amnesty legislation in the coming months. She also reportedly claimed the high-tech industry needed more “educated workers” even though numerous studies have debunked the myth that there is a shortage of American high-tech workers. 

Indeed, since the Lawbreaker-in-Chief took over the helm, rock solid plans to terrorize American citizens – into submitting to their “transformation” – have been in place. Thus, it behooves all Americans, whatever their political fealty, to hold Obama Inc. accountable. After all, does anyone believe that illegal murderers, sex-offenders, criminals in general, repeat drunk drivers too, “discriminate” when committing their crimes? Do they care what your ideological affiliation is, or anything else you deem sacred, before they assault unsuspecting Americans?

Rhetorical questions.

“FAST & FURIOUS” Revelations Squashed: First Amendment Rights Violated. What Are Obama & Goons Hiding? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

There are so many illegal actions swirling overhead on Capitol Hill it is nigh impossible to keep abreast, even if one is as tuned in as this blogger tends to be. Invariably, some poopings will fall through the cracks, yet it is not for lack of effort or relevant access.

Be that as it may, several remain a focal point, most intrinsically: Benghazigate, IRSgate, NSAgate, DOJgate as well as Fast & Furious. But before we catch up with one in particular it is instructive to take note of the following: if there is no “there there”, then surely opening up “this and that” to the public – and subjecting its aftermath to the light of day – should be warranted and certainly not hushed up. You think? Yet, if the opposite is the case, to hell with the First Amendment, and hiding under the guise of “security” and other made up out of whole cloth concerns suddenly becomes a mitigating factor. Give us all a break…so many tall tales…who can keep up!

Indeed, freedom of religion (NOT including the jihadist kind) and freedom of expression (but screaming fire in a crowded auditorium, for example, is hardly “protected” expression/speech) is sacrosanct, at least it is supposed to be in America. As such, some who retire from security-related posts are inclined to pen their memoirs, even though they are usually vetted by their former employers/superiors. No problem with that.

To be sure, no one at this site is suggesting that national security isn’t a critical concern, however, pointing out a program which ACTUALLY endangers U.S. interests – for whatever reason – must be fair game. If not, some who harbor less than an American agenda will continue as is and many citizens will be at risk. Well, in third world countries silencing whistle blowers is the norm, but is it the “new” normal in America? Hope not. Which leads us back to Fast & Furious and the censorship fight ahead.

ATF tries to block whistleblowing agent’s Fast and Furious book

1st Amendment battle over ‘gun-walking’ expose

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is blocking the main whistleblower in the Fast and Furious case from publishing a book for pay, claiming his retelling of the Mexico “gun-walking” scandal will hurt morale inside the embattled law enforcement agency, according to documents obtained by The Washington Times.

ATF’s dispute with Special Agent John Dodson is setting up a First Amendment showdown that is poised to bring together liberal groups like the American Civil Liberties Union and conservatives in Congress who have championed Mr. Dodson’s protection as a whistleblower.

The ACLU is slated to become involved in the case Monday, informing ATF it is representing Mr. Dodson and filing a formal protest to the decision to reject his request to publish the already written book, sources told The Times, speaking only on the condition of anonymity.

The battle also could have repercussions on Capitol Hill, where the two lead investigators who helped uncover the Fast and Furious scandal, Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell E. Issa, Calif. Republican, had written a foreword to the book, the sources said.

ATF officials declined Sunday night to discuss Mr. Dodson’s specific matter, citing personnel privacy. But the officials said it was possible for an agent to be rejected for publishing a book for pay but get permission to publish it for free. No manuscript for any Fast and Furious book has received approval for unpaid publication, however, the officials said.

Mr. Dodson was the first ATF special agent to go public in 2011 with allegations that his supervisors had authorized the flow of semi-automatic weapons into Mexico instead of interdicting them, touching off a scandal that toppled most of the top leadership of ATF in Washington and Phoenix. The controversy also led to angry recriminations in Mexico, which dealt with a wave of violent crime linked to the weapons, and high-profile congressional hearings that embarrassed the Obama administration.

Mr. Dodson began penning a book late last year about his role as the central whistleblower in the case and in June sought formal permission for outside employment that would allow him to engage a publisher and publish the book.

Documents show that one of Mr. Dodson’s supervisors in Arizona, Assistant Special Agent in Charge Carlos Canino, rejected his request July 19 and was backed in the decision by the agent in charge of the office, Thomas G. Atteberry, four days later.

Their rejection made no claims that the book would release sensitive or classified information or compromise ongoing law enforcement proceedings.

Rather, the supervisors offered a different reason for their decision. “This would have a negative impact on morale in the Phoenix [Field Division] and would have a detrimental effect on our relationships with DEA and FBI.”

The ATF general counsel’s office subsequently sanctioned the decision, all but killing the book project.

“An employee’s supervisory chain may disapprove any outside employment request for any reason, at any supervisory level,” ATF attorney Greg Serres wrote Mr. Dodson on Aug. 29, underlining the word “any” for emphasis. “The Office of Chief Counsel cannot approve outside employment requests in lieu of the supervisory chain’s disapproval.

“Therefore, your request to engage in outside employment is denied,” he said.

Separately, a top ATF official has been reviewing Mr. Dodson’s manuscript for any concerns about sensitive or classified information, potentially leaving open the possibility a process by which it could be published for free, a senior law enforcement official told The Times.

The gun-walking strategy — part of an undercover case called Fast and Furious — violated ATF’s long-standing policy to interdict weapons from straw buyers.

In all, ATF officials permitted more than 1,700 semi-automatic weapons to flow through the hands of straw buyers for the Mexican cartels, with many crossing the border.

Senior ATF officials hoped to trace the guns to crimes, then make a bigger case against the Mexican drug lords. The strategy, however, backfired when hundreds of the weapons began showing up at crime scenes on both sides of the border, including at the December 2010 murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

The Justice Department initially denied guns knowingly had been allowed to flow across the border, then months later reversed course and admitted the tactic had been used for more than a year. The change in story led to allegations of a cover-up.

The revelations exploded into public in spring 2011, catapulting Mr. Dodson and other ATF field agents who had objected into dual investigations by Congress and the Justice Department inspector general.

President Obama and Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. both claimed they knew nothing about the strategy until the controversy erupted, but the president has invoked executive privilege to block Congress from seeing certain documents, thus thwarting the completion of that probe. A court recently ruled in favor of Congress in the ongoing legal dispute.

Both the congressional and inspector general investigations concluded that the gun-walking tactics were poorly conceived and put lives in jeopardy. The fallout forced the ouster of numerous top officials, including the U.S. attorney in Phoenix, Dennis Burke, and the acting director of the ATF, Kenneth Melson.

The ATF, under new director B. Todd Jones, says it has imposed sweeping procedures to ensure gun-walking doesn’t occur in future cases.

The book dispute with Mr. Dodson, however, is not the first First Amendment controversy to erupt in the aftermath of the scandal.

Last year, Mr. Jones raised alarm in Congress and inside his own agency when he released a videotaped message that warned agencies that there would be “consequences” if agents blew the whistle on wrongdoing outside their chain of command.

The message led to claims that whistleblowing would be chilled, and ATF subsequently clarified Mr. Jones‘ remarks to emphasize that the agency would not interfere with legitimate whistleblowing activities.

Patriots are receiving blows from both ends, sort of like a double-barreled shotgun. On the one hand, a hammer effect is chipping away at one freedom after another. This is no longer debatable, it is fact-based. On the flip side, those who are tasked to protect citizens’ rights are doing no such thing. Consider the detrimental, runaway results from AG Holder’s fiefdom, and then juxtapose them against the military-style gearing up of police forces.

Does it appear that there is any official entity a citizen-patriot can reliably count on? Not from this laser-focused patriot’s lens.

The IRS As A Political Hammer: Don’t Dare Criticize Obama Inc. – Or Else …Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

One must internalize the depths Obama & goons will go to to silence those who dare to criticize their dictates, especially those with the “audacity” to do so in full national view! Just use your imagination, then place yourselves within any strong-arm dictatorship, and think of this moment in American history as the “softening up” process. The warning shot across the bow. Obey “dear leader”…or else.

Mind you, this is a not regime which tolerates any dissent, as “mysterious’ deaths have become “fall-back” options. But the IRS, in and of itself, is the most feared behemoth within American society, as it touches almost every citizen’s life, one way or another, therefore, its illegal co-option is more than threatening. 

IRSgate clearly demonstrates its gargantuan reach, and the resonance it has with (most)  Americans, regardless of other societal divisions.

So, along comes Dr. Ben Carson, an erudite, powerful speaker, let alone a renowned neurosurgeon, as he tears apart Obama Inc. and its push towards “affordable” healthcare, all the while attending a prayer breakfast as a featured speaker! Talk about a bushwhack between their eyes, and then some. Huh…and Obama’s goons decided to get even….instead of reflecting on this world class doctor’s recommendations and insights. What a bunch of no talent (other than for deconstruction and destruction) governmental ingrates.

IRS targeted Dr. Ben Carson after Prayer Breakfast speech 

The Washington Times

Thursday, October 3, 2013

  • Dr. Ben S. Carson (Courtesy of Dr. Carson) 
  • Just months after he gave a speech earlier this year that challenged America’s leadership in President Obama’s presence, Dr. Ben Carson was targeted by IRS agents who requested to review his real estate holdings and then conducted a full audit without finding any wrongdoing.

“I guess it could be a coincidence, but I never had been audited before and never really had any encounters with the IRS,” Dr. Carson said in an interview Thursday with The Washington Times. “But it certainly would make one suspicious because we know now the IRS has been used for political purposes and therefore actions like this come under suspicion.”

Dr. Carson is a world-renown neurosurgeon whose rise from poverty and a single family home, and his medical work with pediatric patients was celebrated in a movie called “Gifted Hands.”

He has electrified the conservative world with speeches and columns since his February National Prayer Breakfast speech in front of Mr. Obama, in which he decried the “moral decay and fiscal irresponsibility” of America in recent years. He writes a weekly column for The Times.

Dr. Carson first hinted at the problem earlier this week during a speech in Alabama when he made a vague reference to having his first “encounter with the IRS” earlier this year.

Dr. Carson told The Times that IRS agents contacted him in June — less than four months after the speech — and requested to review his real estate holdings. After finding nothing that concerned them, the agents then informed him they were conducting a full audit of his finances, and then asked to go back an additional year to review his records, he said.

They finally ended the review in August after finding no problems, Dr. Carson said.

“They told me everything was in good standing and left,” he said.


SEE ALSO: IRS collecting money but not sending tax refunds during shutdown


Asked whether he thought the audit was a retaliation for his speech, Dr. Carson quipped: “I guess I’m surprised it took them that long.”

He said the more serious issue is that the IRS has been politicized — “something that should never have happened” — and that leaves all of its activities open to suspicion.

Most succinctly, back in February 2013, Real Clear Politics tells the tale in ‘Somebody Has To Stand Up To The Bullies’. The righteous and valiant doc calls Obama Inc. what they truly are and smacks them broadside too. Oh yeah.

In this regard, a previous commentary relates why Obama Inc. is hell bent on imposing Obamacare, and its essence lies in ultimate control, not only of a significant portion of the economy, but as a path to gun control.

As such, what are the chances that the IRS and other entities, won’t be utilized to silence and more, as many of their enforcement agents will now be carrying shotguns? Less than slim to none. A piker’s dream.

The INCREASED Rallying Cry For Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s IMPEACHMENT Grows Louder: Which Groups Are Jumping On Board? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

To be a patriot – at least in the western sense – has zero to do with ones skin color, sex or ethnicity. What it has to do with is a person’s adherence/appreciation for G-d given personal liberty and freedom.

This site has amassed a trove of evidence, detailing why Obama is ripe for impeachment. Consider: what about a regime gone wild shouldn’t lead to actionable judgment? Let us continue to count his crimes against the American people via trampling on the Constitution: IRSgate, Benghazigate and NSAgate are opening shots.

Yet, it warms the heart when Black Republicans break ranks, not only with fellow Congressional RINO’s, but with many in the Black community. Leftists in general ( Jewish brethren atop the list ), and Blacks in particular, believe that the law does not apply to Obama Inc and that is that. Fist bumps all around.

BLACK REPUBLICANS CALL FOR OBAMA IMPEACHMENT

President ‘has prevented, obstructed and impeded the administration of justice’

BOB UNRUH – videos embedded

  
Impeach

A Florida-based organization of black Republicans is calling for Barack Obama’s impeachment, releasing “Articles” that charge him with “egregious acts of despotism that constitute high crimes and misdemeanors.”

According to the Florida WatchdogWire, there are 10 articles including obstruction of the investigation into the Benghazi, Libya, murder of four Americans; the scandal of the administration’s running guns to drug ring lords in Mexico and the Internal Revenue Service’s campaign to obstruct the operations of conservative and Christian organizations.

The National Black Republican Association is an organization that is dedicated to returning “black Americans to their Republican Party roots by enlightening them about how Republicans fought for their freedom and civil rights, and are now fighting for their educational and economic advancement.”

The organization said the articles were delivered to Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker John Boehner, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and the Judiciary Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives.

“On July 4, 1776, the founders of our nation declared their independence from governmental tyranny and reaffirmed their faith in independence with the ratification of the Bill of Rights in 1791. Asserting their right to break free from the tyranny of a nation that denied them the civil liberties that are our birthright, the founders declared: ‘When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty to throw off such government…”

Brand new! “Impeachable Offenses” reveals the evidence of the crimes Barack Obama has committed against the United States.

The Constitution also requires that a president or vice president “Shall be removed from office” for treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

The challenge to Obama lists Benghazi, his disclosure of secret grand jury material about Benghazi, the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal, his authorization of the provision of confidential income tax returns to outside interests, the IRS audits of conservatives, the electronic surveillance by the National Security Agency of innocent Americans, the Department of Justice’s wiretaps on journalists, the thwarting of the will of the people over the Defense of Marriage Act, his unconstitutional appointments of three members of the National Labor Relations Board and his intimidation of whistleblowers.

“Barack H. Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office,” the articles finish.

Just a few days earlier, a member of Congress said there likely would be votes enough in the House to impeach.

But Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, said it would be ineffectual because the Democrats in control in the Senate never would take any action.

Buzzfeed reported Farenthold responded to a question from a constituent at an open house.

The Constitution also requires a president to be a natural-born citizen, which the Founders apparently defined as the offspring of two citizens of the nation. Obama’s father never was a U.S. citizen.

The issue got so much attention during Obama’s first term that he presented a document he claimed was his birth certificate from the state of Hawaii.

Since then, Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse investigative team have concluded the document is a fraud.

WND has reported that members of Congress are expressing interest in the dispute.

Farenthold said at the open house Saturday that it’s probably too late to address the matter.

“I think unfortunately the horse is already out of the barn on this, on the whole birth certificate issue,” said the congressman. “The original Congress, when his eligibility came up, should have looked into it, and they didn’t. I’m not sure how we fix it.”

Farenthold told the audience in Luling, Texas: “You tie into a question I get a lot: ‘If everyone’s so unhappy with what the president’s done, why don’t you impeach him?’ I’ll give you a real frank answer about that: If we were to impeach the president tomorrow, you could probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it. But it would go to the Senate and he wouldn’t be convicted.”

He cited the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, who was not convicted by the Senate.

That episode, he said, “redefined sex” for a lot of young people.

“What message do we sent to America if we impeach Obama and he gets away with what he’s impeached for and he is found innocent? What then do we say is OK?” Farenthold asked.

There already is a grass roots movement called Overpasses For Obama’s Impeachment, and members are staging protests on freeway overpasses, calling for impeachment.

WND also has reported Watergate investigator Bob Woodward of the Washington Post compares Obama to Richard Nixon. And there’s a national petition that calls on Congress to immediately investigate the “unconstitutional and impeachable offenses” of Obama.

The latest American group to seek formal congressional action against Obama says on its website that its goal is simple: “The removal of the corrupt and criminal president of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama.”

“His actions go unimpeded, our pleas through petitions unanswered. Our calls and letters to Congress are left ignored and unopened,” the group’s online post explains. “Our only peaceful recourse is to take to the streets and overpasses of America and DEMAND that our nation be returned to We the People, and that Barack Hussein Obama be impeached, removed from office, and held accountable for his actions while serving as president.”

The overpass protest group says America “is in its greatest time of peril in since the Founding Fathers bravely fought in the Revolutionary War.”

“Lady Liberty is calling YOU to stand up, to speak out, to take to the streets and DEMAND that the corrupt tyrant be removed from the White House, and all of those who colluded with him in his crimes against the United States be held accountable to the full extent of the law, with the maximum sentences handed down upon them.”

WND has reported previously on many calls for Obama’s impeachment, which would put him in the company of Nixon and Bill Clinton.

Sign the petition right away!

The petition states: “Therefore, we the undersigned urge Congress to immediately undertake a full and impartial investigation into the many blatantly unconstitutional actions of Barack Obama. For members of Congress, each of whom has also sworn a solemn oath to uphold the Constitution, to allow a president to routinely flout the Supreme Law of the land without being held accountable is equally repugnant to a free country and a free press.”

Tens of thousands already are on board with the effort, which is just the latest in a long string of calls for impeachment or an investigation.

Impeachment has been brought up by several WND columnists, too.

Nat Hentoff wrote that Obama, “since taking office, has continually limited the First Amendment, the most singular and powerful right that distinctly identifies Americans from residents in all other countries on Earth.”

Columnist Bert Prelutsky took it further.

“I want Obama to go through the process because he has it coming. In totalitarian states, after all, the people have no other recourse except to take to the streets and spill blood. But we have available the process of impeachment, and Obama should be forced to defend his contemptible lies and actions,” he wrote. “If for no other reason than his unbearable arrogance, the schmuck should have to pay a penalty. For instance, when a White House reporter asked him to justify spying on the Associated Press, Obama said, ‘I’ve still got 60,000-plus troops in Afghanistan and I still have a bunch of intelligence officers around the world.’ No, sir, the United States has 60,000-plus troops in Afghanistan and a bunch of intelligence officers around the world.”

A panel of top constitutional experts convened by WND blasted Obama’s actions in office. Bruce Fein, the legal scholar who is best known for having drafted articles of impeachment against former President Clinton for perjury after he lied under oath, said Obama’s orders to drone-kill a terror suspect were “tantamount to murder.”

“You can’t have democracy and the rule of law if you never get to know what the facts are and you just have to accept what the government says they are. If you don’t have a trial, that’s the definition of tyranny.”

Louis Fisher, a scholar in residence at the Constitution Project, said of Obama’s appointment of “czars”: “That is a big deal. A lot of people say, ‘Well, that’s been going on a long time.’ In our form of government, citizens vote for representatives and representatives pass laws. You have people heading departments, and they’re confirmed. There’s an understanding that we will call you up whenever we need to. … Congress passed legislation saying there’d be no funds for three czars, and they were named in the bill. Obama signed it into the law, but in the signing statement, he said that’s unconstitutional because he has the ‘prerogative’ to get the advice he needs to implement statutes. Well, c’mon Obama. You don’t have a prerogative to bring into the White House anybody you want at any salary. It’s all done by law. It goes back to 1978 where Congress passed legislation saying you have this number of people and these are their salaries and Congress can increase or decrease that at any time.”

And Herbert Titus, counsel to the law firm William J. Olson who previously taught constitutional law, common law and other subjects for 30 years at five different American Bar Association-approved law schools, said Obama’s military actions in Libya are a strong argument for impeachment.

“That’s the one that stands out. It’s unprecedented. It doesn’t even fit within any of the precedents that have been set since Korea.”

Obama should have seen such a move coming. A recent poll earlier this year said half of Americans say he should be impeached.

“It may be early in the process for members of Congress to start planning for impeachment of Barack Obama, but the American public is building a serious appetite for it,” said Fritz Wenzel of Wenzel Strategies, which did the telephone poll.

Half or nearly half of those surveyed said they believed Obama should be impeached for the multitude of scandals now consuming Washington.

On the issue of the Benghazi scandal, in which four Americans were killed after terror threats were ignored, 50.1 percent of Americans said Obama should be impeached. That included 27.6 percent of the responding Democrats.

On the IRS harassment of conservative and Christian organizations? Forty-nine percent said they agree that impeachment is appropriate, including 24.4 percent of the Democrats.

And on the fishing trip the Obama administration took into AP reporters’ telephone records in search of a security breach that may have been done by his own administration, 48.6 percent said impeachment is appropriate. That included 26.1 percent of the Democrats.

Sign the petition urging Congress to impeach Obama.

Former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan wrote that the country is in the midst of the worst Washington scandal since Watergate.

“The reputation of the Obama White House has, among conservatives, gone from sketchy to sinister, and, among liberals, from unsatisfying to dangerous<” she said. “No one likes what they’re seeing. The Justice Department assault on the Associated Press and the ugly politicization of the Internal Revenue Service have left the administration’s credibility deeply, probably irretrievably damaged. They don’t look jerky now, they look dirty. The patina of high-mindedness the president enjoyed is gone.

Noonan said Obama, “as usual, acts as if all of this is totally unconnected to him.”

“He’s shocked, it’s unacceptable, he’ll get to the bottom of it. He read about it in the papers, just like you. But he is not unconnected, he is not a bystander. This is his administration. Those are his executive agencies. He runs the IRS and the Justice Department,” she continued. “A president sets a mood, a tone. He establishes an atmosphere. If he is arrogant, arrogance spreads. If he is too partisan, too disrespecting of political adversaries, that spreads too. Presidents always undo themselves and then blame it on the third guy in the last row in the sleepy agency across town.”

It’s even being compared to Watergate, the break-in that ultimately led to the resignation of President Nixon.

That was the assessment of no less than Woodward, whose reporting on Watergate eventually snared the sitting president.

Woodward said recently: “If you read through all these emails, you see that everyone in the government is saying, ‘Oh, let’s not tell the public that terrorists were involved, people connected to al Qaeda. Let’s not tell the public that there were warnings.’ And I have to go back 40 years to Watergate when Nixon put out his edited transcripts to the conversations, and he personally went through them and said, ‘Oh, let’s not tell this, let’s not show this.’ I would not dismiss Benghazi. It’s a very serious issue.”

A Republican congressman also recently brought up the subject.

“I would say yes. I’m not willing to take it [impeachment] off to take it off the table, but that’s certainly not what we’re striving for,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told CNN.

“We want truth, we want to bring the people who perpetrated the terrorism in Benghazi to be brought to justice, and we want to have the president do what he has said he would always do. And that is be open and transparent. Thus far, the White House has not done that.”

Earlier, Chaffetz, in an interview with the Salt Lake Tribune, was asked if impeachment was within the realm of possibility.

“It’s certainly a possibility,” he told the paper. “That’s not the goal but given the continued lies perpetrated by this administration, I don’t know where it’s going to go. … I’m not taking it off the table. I’m not out there touting that but I think this gets to the highest levels of our government and integrity and honesty are paramount.”

Chaffetz has been championing the call to probe the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the Benghazi compound that left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., said impeachment was possible over the “most egregious cover-up in American history.

“People may be starting to use the I-word before too long,” Inhofe told radio host Rusty Humphries, according to The Hill.

“The I-word meaning impeachment?” Humphries asked.

“Yeah,” Inhofe responded.

Additionally, radio host Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor and one-time presidential candidate, predicted Obama won’t serve out his second term because of his complicity in a cover-up over Benghazi.

Other members of Congress who have suggested impeachment for a variety of reasons in recent years include Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.; Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.; Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas; Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas; Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fla.; and Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa.

Others who have raised the subject include rock legend and gun-rights defender Ted Nugent, who said there’s “no question” Obama should be impeached.

He blasted “the criminality of this government, the unprecedented abuse of power, corruption, fraud and deceit by the Chicago gangster-scammer-ACORN-in-chief.”

“It’s so diabolical,” he said.

Even Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin called for the impeachment of Obama over his policy of permitting drone strikes on American citizens overseas who are members of terrorist organizations.

On WABC Radio’s “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” Benjamin affirmed she believes the drone warfare is an impeachable offense.

The administration of Democrat Barack Obama has still not satisfied congressional and media questions about just what it knew and when it knew it about the terrorist attack on U.S. diplomats in Benghazi, Libya, last September 11. That attack killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya. The Obama administration has changed its explanation of that attack several times since and has so far refused to identify those officials who made key decisions not to send help to stop the attacks, and who decided not to initially call the killings a terrorist attack. Knowing that and anything else you may be aware of about this issue, do you agree or disagree that President Obama should be impeached over his handling of this situation?

It has been learned that the Internal Revenue Service, under the administration of Democrat Barack Obama, has purposely targeted conservative and Christian groups for harassment over their tax exempt status while giving liberal nonprofit groups little or no scrutiny. Further, the IRS apparently leaked private tax information from these conservative groups to opposing liberal groups who were able to use that confidential information for political advantage. Knowing this and anything else you may be aware of about this issue, do you agree or disagree that President Obama should be impeached over his handling of this situation?

It has been learned that the U.S. Department of Justice under the administration of Democrat Barack Obama secretly obtained confidential telephone records of many reporters of the Associated Press in Washington, D.C. Attorney General Eric Holder has said his department obtained the phone records without the permission or knowledge of the Associated Press in order to find who in the federal government was leaking information about terrorist plots against America. AP officials have strongly protested this invasion of their privacy but the administration stands by its actions. Knowing this and anything else you may be aware of about this issue, do you agree or disagree that President Obama should be impeached over his handling of this situation?

IF one is seeking the Constitutional backing/muster to indict the Commander-in-Chief for High Crimes and Misdemeanors, look no further than the imprimatur of Professor Paul Eidelberg. He delivers the goods. 

Most ominously, under the out of control reign of the Radical/Islamist-in-Chief, law enforcement has become the regime’s personal bludgeon…shades of Nazi Germany. As a matter of fact, under his purview local policing has become increasingly militarized, in direct violation of Posse ComitatusNeed some visual aids to said charges? Fine. ‘Big brother’ cops crush push to impeach Obama.

So, will patriots wait until Obama Inc.’s goons start roughing them up, if they dare to legally ! demonstrate against ‘dear leader’? And, isn’t America starting to resemble the totalitarian grip of Germany, while under the crushing boot of the SS?

The NSA: Caught, Dead To Rights…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

From the get go, be rest assured, this blog makes no pretense in pretending to understand anything which necessitates computer-based expertise. Such a claim would be more than a hoot…can even hear some nearest and dearest emitting quite a few chuckles, as this is being written. Indeed, this science/math based specialty is best left in the capable hands of software/hardware engineers – you know who you are – as they sift through all the highly technical mumbo jumbo aspects of the NSA. It is the most advanced, illegal (domestically-speaking) spying system in the world. Most intrinsically, outside efforts (hack-wise or not…whatever it takes…beating NSA’s spies at their own game, as they dare pry, EN MASSE, into the privacy of Americans) to uncover the manifest abuses conducted under the purview of Obama Inc. may very well save the greatest Constitutional Republic in the world. Get cracking. Cat and mouse.

Nevertheless, the expertise herein absolutely lies in geo-politics, Islamic jihad and the Mid East, including its politics, religion and culture. And it doesn’t take a computer scientist to wade through the non-technical muck, in turn, internalizing what constitutes unfettered spying. This is for sure.

To be exact, when one is immersed in the dogged pursuit of those who dare to mess with liberty and freedom – chiefly, creatures belonging to the red/green alliance – anything smacking of squelching said freedoms, well, it doesn’t go unnoticed or non- pursued.

In this regard, in tandem with all the explosive scandals due to Obama Inc., including NSAgateas well as IRSgate, Benghazigate, DOJgate, Fast & Furious, etc, the notion that any move a U.S. citizen makes is open to monitoring, well, few Americans are okay with living in a police statejust ask the Catalanos (Michele Catalano, a long time blogger at PJ Media and elsewhere…holy smokes) and countless others, whose homes were invaded, all for the ‘crime’ of internet searches! In fact, being that this blogger’s searches covers a gambit of hot range issues…burning up the long distance telephone wires in the process…can’t imagine how dangerous it would be to still live in the U.S. And this (very disturbing) sentiment is coming from someone who lives within missile range of Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas and many other jihadi terrorist groups! No kidding.

Most egregiously, the exception to their blanket spying is the Muslim American community, and their ‘hands off’ policy is evinced herein – Homeland Insecurity: The White House assures that tracking our every phone call and keystroke is to stop terrorists, and yet it won’t snoop in mosques, where the terrorists are.

That’s right, the government’s sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized.

Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents. No more surveillance or undercover string operations without high-level approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee.

Who makes up this body, and how do they decide requests? Nobody knows; the names of the chairman, members and staff are kept secret.

We do know the panel was set up under pressure from Islamist groups who complained about FBI stings at mosques. Just months before the panel’s formation, the Council on American-Islamic Relations teamed up with the ACLU to sue the FBI for allegedly violating the civil rights of Muslims in Los Angeles by hiring an undercover agent to infiltrate and monitor mosques there.”

IF Obama and gang truly believe that domestic spying on ALL Americans, yet excluding those who are the gravest threat – Muslim Americans – is going to pass muster, well, it is doubtful that patriots will continue to stand still.

XKeyscore: NSA tool collects ‘nearly everything a user does on the internet’

• XKeyscore gives ‘widest-reaching’ collection of online data
• NSA analysts require no prior authorization for searches
• Sweeps up emails, social media activity and browsing history
• NSA’s XKeyscore program – read one of the presentations

XKeyscore map
One presentation claims the XKeyscore program covers ‘nearly everything a typical user does on the internet’

A top secret National Security Agency program allows analysts to search with no prior authorization through vast databases containing emails, online chats and the browsing histories of millions of individuals, according to documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The NSA boasts in training materials that the program, called XKeyscore, is its “widest-reaching” system for developing intelligence from theinternet.

The latest revelations will add to the intense public and congressional debate around the extent of NSA surveillance programs. They come as senior intelligence officials testify to the Senate judiciary committee on Wednesday, releasing classified documents in response to the Guardian’s earlier stories on bulk collection of phone records and Fisasurveillance court oversight.

The files shed light on one of Snowden’s most controversial statements, made in his first video interview published by the Guardian on June 10.

“I, sitting at my desk,” said Snowden, could “wiretap anyone, from you or your accountant, to a federal judge or even the president, if I had a personal email”.

US officials vehemently denied this specific claim. Mike Rogers, the Republican chairman of the House intelligence committee, said of Snowden’s assertion: “He’s lying. It’s impossible for him to do what he was saying he could do.”

But training materials for XKeyscore detail how analysts can use it and other systems to mine enormous agency databases by filling in a simple on-screen form giving only a broad justification for the search. The request is not reviewed by a court or any NSA personnel before it is processed.

XKeyscore, the documents boast, is the NSA’s “widest reaching” system developing intelligence from computer networks – what the agency calls Digital Network Intelligence (DNI). One presentation claims the program covers “nearly everything a typical user does on the internet”, including the content of emails, websites visited and searches, as well as theirmetadata.

Analysts can also use XKeyscore and other NSA systems to obtain ongoing “real-time” interception of an individual’s internet activity.

Under US law, the NSA is required to obtain an individualized Fisawarrant only if the target of their surveillance is a ‘US person’, though no such warrant is required for intercepting the communications of Americans with foreign targets. But XKeyscore provides the technological capability, if not the legal authority, to target even US persons for extensive electronic surveillance without a warrant provided that some identifying information, such as their email or IP address, is known to the analyst.

One training slide illustrates the digital activity constantly being collected by XKeyscore and the analyst’s ability to query the databases at any time.

KS1

The purpose of XKeyscore is to allow analysts to search the metadata as well as the content of emails and other internet activity, such as browser history, even when there is no known email account (a “selector” in NSAparlance) associated with the individual being targeted.

Analysts can also search by name, telephone number, IP address, keywords, the language in which the internet activity was conducted or the type of browser used.

One document notes that this is because “strong selection [search by email address] itself gives us only a very limited capability” because “a large amount of time spent on the web is performing actions that are anonymous.”

The NSA documents assert that by 2008, 300 terrorists had been captured using intelligence from XKeyscore.

Analysts are warned that searching the full database for content will yield too many results to sift through. Instead they are advised to use themetadata also stored in the databases to narrow down what to review.

A slide entitled “plug-ins” in a December 2012 document describes the various fields of information that can be searched. It includes “every email address seen in a session by both username and domain”, “every phone number seen in a session (eg address book entries or signature block)” and user activity – “the webmail and chat activity to include username, buddylist, machine specific cookies etc”.

Email monitoring

In a second Guardian interview in June, Snowden elaborated on his statement about being able to read any individual’s email if he had their email address. He said the claim was based in part on the email search capabilities of XKeyscore, which Snowden says he was authorized to use while working as a Booz Allen contractor for the NSA.

One top-secret document describes how the program “searches within bodies of emails, webpages and documents”, including the “To, From, CC, BCC lines” and the ‘Contact Us’ pages on websites”.

To search for emails, an analyst using XKS enters the individual’s email address into a simple online search form, along with the “justification” for the search and the time period for which the emails are sought.

KS2

KS3edit2

The analyst then selects which of those returned emails they want to read by opening them in NSA reading software.

The system is similar to the way in which NSA analysts generally can intercept the communications of anyone they select, including, as one NSA document put it, “communications that transit the United States and communications that terminate in the United States”.

One document, a top secret 2010 guide describing the training received by NSA analysts for general surveillance under the Fisa Amendments Act of 2008, explains that analysts can begin surveillance on anyone by clicking a few simple pull-down menus designed to provide both legal and targeting justifications. Once options on the pull-down menus are selected, their target is marked for electronic surveillance and the analyst is able to review the content of their communications:

KS4

Chats, browsing history and other internet activity

Beyond emails, the XKeyscore system allows analysts to monitor a virtually unlimited array of other internet activities, including those within social media.

An NSA tool called DNI Presenter, used to read the content of stored emails, also enables an analyst using XKeyscore to read the content of Facebook chats or private messages.

KS55edit

An analyst can monitor such Facebook chats by entering the Facebook user name and a date range into a simple search screen.

KS6

Analysts can search for internet browsing activities using a wide range of information, including search terms entered by the user or the websites viewed.

KS7

As one slide indicates, the ability to search HTTP activity by keyword permits the analyst access to what the NSA calls “nearly everything a typical user does on the internet”.

KS8

The XKeyscore program also allows an analyst to learn the IP addresses of every person who visits any website the analyst specifies.

KS9

The quantity of communications accessible through programs such as XKeyscore is staggeringly large. One NSA report from 2007 estimated that there were 850bn “call events” collected and stored in the NSA databases, and close to 150bn internet records. Each day, the document says, 1-2bn records were added.

William Binney, a former NSA mathematician, said last year that the agency had “assembled on the order of 20tn transactions about US citizens with other US citizens”, an estimate, he said, that “only was involving phone calls and emails”. A 2010 Washington Post article reported that “every day, collection systems at the [NSA] intercept and store 1.7bn emails, phone calls and other type of communications.”

The XKeyscore system is continuously collecting so much internet data that it can be stored only for short periods of time. Content remains on the system for only three to five days, while metadata is stored for 30 days. One document explains: “At some sites, the amount of data we receive per day (20+ terabytes) can only be stored for as little as 24 hours.”

To solve this problem, the NSA has created a multi-tiered system that allows analysts to store “interesting” content in other databases, such as one named Pinwale which can store material for up to five years.

It is the databases of XKeyscore, one document shows, that now contain the greatest amount of communications data collected by the NSA.

KS10

In 2012, there were at least 41 billion total records collected and stored in XKeyscore for a single 30-day period.

KS11

Legal v technical restrictions

While the Fisa Amendments Act of 2008 requires an individualized warrant for the targeting of US persons, NSA analysts are permitted to intercept the communications of such individuals without a warrant if they are in contact with one of the NSA’s foreign targets.

The ACLU’s deputy legal director, Jameel Jaffer, told the Guardian last month that national security officials expressly said that a primary purpose of the new law was to enable them to collect large amounts of Americans’ communications without individualized warrants.

“The government doesn’t need to ‘target’ Americans in order to collect huge volumes of their communications,” said Jaffer. “The government inevitably sweeps up the communications of many Americans” when targeting foreign nationals for surveillance.

An example is provided by one XKeyscore document showing an NSAtarget in Tehran communicating with people in Frankfurt, Amsterdam and New York.

KS12

In recent years, the NSA has attempted to segregate exclusively domestic US communications in separate databases. But even NSA documents acknowledge that such efforts are imperfect, as even purely domestic communications can travel on foreign systems, and NSA tools are sometimes unable to identify the national origins of communications.

Moreover, all communications between Americans and someone on foreign soil are included in the same databases as foreign-to-foreign communications, making them readily searchable without warrants.

Some searches conducted by NSA analysts are periodically reviewed by their supervisors within the NSA. “It’s very rare to be questioned on our searches,” Snowden told the Guardian in June, “and even when we are, it’s usually along the lines of: ‘let’s bulk up the justification’.”

In a letter this week to senator Ron Wyden, director of national intelligence James Clapper acknowledged that NSA analysts have exceeded even legal limits as interpreted by the NSA in domestic surveillance.

Acknowledging what he called “a number of compliance problems”, Clapper attributed them to “human error” or “highly sophisticated technology issues” rather than “bad faith”.

However, Wyden said on the Senate floor on Tuesday: “These violations are more serious than those stated by the intelligence community, and are troubling.”

In a statement to the Guardian, the NSA said: “NSA’s activities are focused and specifically deployed against – and only against – legitimate foreign intelligence targets in response to requirements that our leaders need for information necessary to protect our nation and its interests.

“XKeyscore is used as a part of NSA’s lawful foreign signals intelligence collection system.

“Allegations of widespread, unchecked analyst access to NSA collection data are simply not true. Access to XKeyscore, as well as all of NSA’s analytic tools, is limited to only those personnel who require access for their assigned tasks … In addition, there are multiple technical, manual and supervisory checks and balances within the system to prevent deliberate misuse from occurring.”

“Every search by an NSA analyst is fully auditable, to ensure that they are proper and within the law.

“These types of programs allow us to collect the information that enables us to perform our missions successfully – to defend the nation and to protect US and allied troops abroad.”

Are you dizzy yet? Hope not. After all, despite their spin that FULL frontal spying is mandatory to keep America safe (just ask Boston’s victims if they feel safer, knowing full well that the Chechen bombers WERE monitoredbut only once Russia’s security forces gave U.S. security the heads up…not due to anything the NSA uncovered) we know better. Certainly expect so. 

IRSgate, Via Its Chief Counsel, Lands Squarely At The Lawbreaker-in-Chief’s Door! Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Out of a laundry list of scandals swirling around Obama Inc two resonate the most with average Americans – IRSgate and NSAgate. One deals with financial fleecing and the other with a TOTAL invasion of privacy. Not exactly the way to engender trust, nor endearment, in ones leadership, to say the least.

To be sure, unless operating off the radar financially without requisite SS numbers in the murky waters of ‘cash’ only payments – commonly referred to in business as ‘off the books’ – most are as scared of the IRS as they are of being bit by a Pit Bull or some such wild animal. Maybe even more so. A trip to the dentist, in comparison, is a piece of cake, even if much drilling/pulling needs to be done. The IRS is that onerous.

It is this abject fear of the IRS’s ability to financially ruin a person’s life which has rendered IRSgate to register so high on the Richter scale, not that other scandals implicating Obama Inc. aren’t equally criminal in nature! But most relate better when they can project themselves into the mix, hence, taxpayers – large and small – are hoping for the ax to fall, but this time on the IRS!

That being said, IRS about to be blown wide open was penned less than two months ago, ever mindful of the dread and contempt felt by the average citizen, as juxtaposed against a deep knowledge base of the inner workings of the IRS. Sort of like having a bird’s eye perspective, both as a taxpayer and (previous) co-owner of a corporate tax practice while living in the NY/NJ area.

IRS abuse of Tea Party groups can be chalked up to “rogue employees” in Cincinnati, huh? Not according to the latest from the Washington Post.

The chief counsel’s office for the Internal Revenue Service, headed by a political appointee of President Obama, helped develop the agency’s problematic guidelines for reviewing “tea party” cases, according to a top IRS attorney.

In interviews with congressional investigators, IRS lawyer Carter Hull said his superiors told him that the chief counsel’s office, led by William Wilkins, would need to review applications that the agency had screened for additional scrutiny because of potential political activity.

Previous accounts from IRS employees had shown that Washington IRS officials were involved in the controversy, but Hull’s comments represent the closest connection to the White House to date.

The IRS counsel is a political appointee. Obama appointed Wilkins to that position in April 2009, so he was there across the entire abuse regime. Previous testimony in the IRS scandalhas revealed that Wilkins learned of the abuse by at least August 4, 2011, but White House spokesman Jay Carney told the press in May 2013 that Wilkins never bothered to inform the White House about it. This new information calls the previous testimony into question: Wilkins apparently knew of the abuse earlier than August 2011, because his own office was involved in it. His likely excuse: His staff went rogue and acted stupidly on their own. No one is ever in charge of, or accountable for, anything in Obama’s government, unless they’re in the military or otherwise expendable. Wilkins is probably too high to be expendable.

We’re getting ever closer to discovering that the White House through its counsel’s office was involved in, and probably directing, the abuse of citizens who were organizing to speak out against the Obama agenda. Catherine Engelbrecht’s case indicates that the IRS abuse is just one line of attack; the Obama government unleashed the full alphabet soup on her after she founded True the Vote.

That’s part of why Eric Holder has been unleashed on George Zimmerman. The right hand is hammering an innocent man while the left hand tries to wave Obama’s most dangerous scandal away. They’ll risk civil unrest to keep this particular scandal off the front pages.

And not to be remiss in burying the White House into quicksand, along comes one of their cheerleaders who inadvertently landed them into deeper holes. Kismet. As a Democrat testifying at yesterday’s hearing she inadvertently let the cat out of the bag. Oh, their Pinocchio noses keep growing…

In need of audio visuals? No problem. Take a peek herein To wit, if said revelations do not (eventually) land the Lawbreaker-in-Chief and his underlings straight into jail cells, then no amount of boomerangs will suffice. Therefore, one will then be able to state with assurance that IRSGate is…case closed. And that is that. 

‘Mama Janet’ Resigns,Yet DHS & Their Fixation On Vets Will Continue: A Regime’s Penchant For Spying – “Putin-esque”…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

NO one needs to convince this blog that white supremacist groups are a danger. And knowing full well that eliminating Jews is as important to them as killing Blacks, well, this registers very high on the self preservation meter.

That being said, let’s place the cards on the table: The tangible priority that DHS assigns to the above domestic threat is barely negligible. And even though ‘mama Janet’ is no longer a factor it will hardly make a dent, at least under Obama Inc’s radical oversight.  Not only that, but US prisons are the largest conduits for Aryan front groups, as well as Islamist ones. Nevertheless, many of them re-enter society more dangerous than prior to their incarceration. Imagine that. Rehabilitation at its finest. But never mind…the fact of the matter is that zippo and zilch is done to suppress said recruitment. And while the above has been the case for years, why isn’t DHS reining them in? Exactly.

But Obama Inc. does have these militias in their sights, yet not for targeting. In fact, they are the useful straw men to achieve other means, and certainly not in America’s interests. So while we are witnessing the anti-American activities of Obama and surrogates, a regime gone wild, they would have Americans believe that they don’t have targets on patriots’ backs, even after they placed bulls eyes on them via IRSgate. Ho hum….

‘Operation Vigilant Eagle’ Spies on Veterans Who Speak Too Freely’

In 2009, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security began a program to monitor white supremacists and “militia/sovereign-citizen extremist groups” for terrorist activities.

Included among the suspected terrorists were Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.

At the time it was revealed, the program called “Operation Vigilant Eagle” caused some controversy but was quickly forgotten and buried by the media.

For the DHS, Vigilant Eagle was the expression of the misdirected paranoia that exists at the agency’s highest levels, which since President Obama stepped into office have issued multiple reports about a supposed wave of terrorism by American conservatives of various stripes, from Tea Party members to off-duty cops.

At the time, Janet Napolitano, Homeland Security secretary and chief conspiracy theorist, told NBC that, “This is an assessment of things just to be wary of, not to infringe on constitutional rights, certainly not to malign our veterans.”

Tell it to Brandon Raub.

Last year, Raub was arrested by a small mob of FBI and Secret Service agents and held for a week at a psychiatric facility, all because the Marine vet likes to gripe in blogs and on Facebook about the federal government. (Who doesn’t?)

According to WorldNet  Daily, one sample of his posts reads, “The United States was meant to lead the charge against injustice, but through our example not our force. People do not respond to having liberty and freedom forced on them”

Ah, yes. You can feel the imminent danger.

He has filed a lawsuit against the federal government. Wonder if another visit to the psych ward is in order?

He was only released last time after a judge stepped in and admonished the agencies holding him that the case was “devoid of any factual allegations.”

Raub’s attorneys claim that the arrest and forcible commitment were an attempt by FBI and other officials with Operation Vigilant Eagle to silence Raub for his criticism of the government.

Documents about Operation Vigilant Eagle show the project idea was hatched in December 2008 as a joint operation of the FBI and Defense Department, as the Bush Administration was packing up and the Obama Administration was moving in, according to the Wall Street Journal.

By February 2009, just weeks after President Obama’s DHS opened shop, a project memo stated that the purpose of Vigilant Eagle was to “share information regarding Iraqi and Afghanistan war veterans whose involvement in white supremacy and/or militia sovereign citizen extremist groups poses a domestic terrorism threat.”

Supposedly, this assessment of a suddenly “growing threat” was based on confidential information, undercover sources and “publicly available” information — I’m betting the Huffington Post or Mother Jones, but the memo doesn’t specify.

Raub’s attorneys say they’ve been contacted by numerous other military veterans recounting similar stories.

After his arrest on August 16, Raub was ordered by a “Special Justice” to be held for 30 days for evaluation and “treatment.” The arresting officials specifically stated his Facebook postings were the reason for his arrest.

Fortunately, Circuit Court Judge Allan Sharrett heard about the case and intervened, throwing out the allegations by the feds.

If this is how we treat our veterans, our country has crossed the line and joined other countries like China and the Soviet Union that use tactical psychological “treatment” and detention to silence the opposition.

Thanks to the Obama Administration, the freedoms our brave veterans fought to protect are slipping away daily. http://godfatherpolitics.com/11001/operation-vigilant-eagle-spies-on-veterans-who-speak-too-freely/#ixzz2Ug5jxqMG

Yet from the get go this blog sent out a clarion call: Calling all vets, Obama Inc. is gunning for you! Talk about pay back for serving ones country.

So vets stand at attention and pay this forward.  

But the hunt is not exactly all inclusive, as Muslim vets are given a pass. Simply put, the Pentagon has been taken over by anti-American leadership. Here’s another nail in its co-option, even as the Pentagon’s chief officers admit there is a clash between civilizations.

And even patriots who haven’t served, conveniently dumped into the “militia” category (this is not to suggest that dangerous militias don’t need scrutiny…they do, but they are being used as a bugaboo against Tea Partiers and the like) definitely need to pay heed, as ALL patriots are in their cross hairs. Can anyone rationally explain DHS’s shopping spree for billions in ammo/hardware? Nope.

Now the above doesn’t obviate the fact that a small percentage of returning vets come home with problems and are in need of “follow up”. Of course they not only require medical assistance, but are owed the best of care. Yet NOT by DHS’s goons, but by health professionals for PTSD or physical infirmities, and a democratic nation entitles them to as much. And more.

Most revealingly, the core issue is that DHS realizes that those who return intact are not only combat trained, but less likely – after all their sacrifices – to lie down and take commands to give up “this and that”. Herein lies the crux of the spying. The hunt against them too. Evil on its face. By design.

Is it still any wonder why this site compares DHS to Germany’s Gestapo? And if the symbiosis between Obama Inc to Germany’s Gestapo is still seen as a bridge too far, perhaps their coming mandate, to spy on ones fellow workers, will stir the pot. It can be gleaned via Obama’s plan to “predict” future leakers!
