NSA Spying on European Allies, Too.
It came out over the weekend that not only is our government spying on us, the American people, it is spying on our allies as well.
When we elected Obama as our president, he said that we would be more liked and respected in the world.
As long as they didn’t find out we were spying on them.
Of course, Secretary of State Lurch defends it, saying that “spying on allies is not unusual”.
This came after the revelation that the US had bugged 38 embassies and foreign missions, including the European Union nerve center in Washington DC.
IngSoc is alive and well.
Lurch seems to be less Secretary of State, and more the Minister of Minitrue.
For those who don’t get the references, you need to read George Orwell’s 1984.
The Germans are starting to like us less and less.
Given our history, we Germans are not willing to trade in our liberty for potentially better security.
Of course, there are many Americans who don’t trust him, either.
To be certain, there are a number of Americans who just shrug their shoulders and say that they’ve been doing this for years.
That doesn’t make it right, and it doesn’t mean it should continue.
The NSA can justify it all they want, but “We’re just gathering intelligence” is not a valid excuse in my book.
This is why so many Americans are loading up on weaponry. Whenever we just shrug our shoulders and say that’s the way it is, the government steps on our throats just a little more.
Why does our government think this sort of activity is acceptable?
Oh, that’s right. They are keeping us safe and combating terrorism.
I’m surprised that Obama hasn’t droned German Prime Minister Angela Merkel yet.
The NSA and FBI are becoming the new Gestapo, and that should send chills down anyone’s spine. Obama’s critics are intimidated into silence. The power of the government is used to intimidate opponents during the election, or prevent them from running campaigns.
Oh, and Obama’s defense for spying on the EU and our allies?
“Well, everyone else does it!”
That’s the kind of argument I would expect from a five year old.
It appears that Obama’s stint in the Choom Gang has killed so many brain cells and left him emotionally stunted.
Honestly, I know politicians lie, but I don’t think I ever remember a president who was so full of excuses and lies as this man. Of course, we can’t be sure that it is him who is running the country, and not Valerie Jarrett. Or George Soros.
After I had originally written and published this, I heard on the news that Obama had this to say in Tanzania:
It’s okay, because we work so closely together that we all share all of this information anyway.
What a knucklehead.
It appears that this administration, that this man, will stop at anything to find out about his enemies and do anything to destroy them.
He is doing his best to shackle us, and, it appears, shackle the world at the same time.
