In the aftermath of the Snowden revelations and furthered by the admission that the NSA has broken the law thousands of times in order to illegally spy on the American people, Obama has decided to appoint a special “commission” to fairly and accurately investigate the latest revelations of this rogue, anti-American agency.
The Whitewash Commissions
You remember those commissions don’t you? Do you remember the Warren Commission and the bang up job they did? The Warren Commission, with its own deception and incompetence created a cottage industry of doubters because their lies were so unbelievable. Do you remember who served on the Warren Commission? How about Allen Dulles, the CIA director that JFK fired. How about Gerald Ford, who would be handsomely rewarded for his treason while serving on the Warren Commission by handing him the presidency when Nixon was deposed. And we know Ford and JFK were enemies in the Senate. How about Congressman Hale Boggs? In 1972, Boggs openly questioned the Commission’s conclusion and handling of evidence. He, along with his main supporter Congressman Nick Begich, disappeared in a plane over Alaska.
You remember the 9/11 Commission don’t you? Nineteen terrorists armed only with box cutters paralyzed the country while destroying 3 WTC buildings and the Pentagon, with the aid of the complete suspension of physics on that day. You remember the 9/11 Commission who totally ignored the huge insurance payout of $7 billion dollars to Larry Silverstein paid on a policy on the WTC buildings. The policy was only taken out a short time before the incident. How about the fact that Goldman Sachs shorted airline stocks only a week before the event? None of these events were ever looked at by the “Commission.” I could go on and on, but you should get the idea.
And now we have a new Commission. President Obama proclaimed this week that “By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I am directing you to establish a Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies” (aka The Review Group). Wait a minute, didn’t Obama recently state that the NSA spy program was not breaking any laws. We should not be surprised, Investment Watch just detailed 252 major lies that Obama has told since he took office. That is what psychopaths do, they lie, repeatedly.
According to Obama, The Review Group will determine whether “the United States employs its technical collection capabilities in a manner that optimally protects our national security and advances our foreign policy while appropriately accounting for other policy considerations, such as the risk of unauthorized disclosure and our need to maintain the public trust. Within 60 days of its establishment, the Review Group will brief their interim findings to me through the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), and the Review Group will provide a final report and recommendations to me through the DNI no later than December 15, 2013.”
The DNI? Really, the DNI is going to be in charge? The DNI is headed by James R. Clapper, one of the biggest liars in Washington D.C.
Who is Obama kidding? Clapper lied to Congress about spying when he said that Washington has no domestic spying program. He committed blatant perjury in his testimony to Congress and he has not been held accountable. When is Clapper going to do the “perp walk.” What would happen to you and I if we had lied to Congress? I am almost forgot that Clapper issued an apology so I guess we can trust him to not never lie or break the law again. With Clapper in charge of the Commission appointments, we can expect another Warren Commission and 9/11 Commission rolled into one.
In other words, this President authorizes spying on Americans and now he is going to seek to justify his actions.
Has anyone actually considered why the NSA and the other alphabet soup agencies are spying on us? I go back to my days as a college basketball coach. I used to travel long distances in order to scout my future opponents and/or watch a lot of game film on opposing teams as well. Why would I do this? I wanted to come to know my enemy as well as I knew myself because I was preparing to defeat my enemy. Why would NSA spying be any different than the scouting a college basketball coach performs. What is the end game? Well, when you combined unlimited spying on American citizens, with the DHS purchase of 2 billion rounds of ammunition. It seems that the end game intent is very clear and the rank and file of the conservative element in this country is in a lot of trouble.
I grew up in an America which was a republic interspersed with some corruption. Today’s America is a corporate criminal enterprise where there are no rules for the elite, and the republic concepts underlying our laws are on life support.
