Don’t tell Tingles.

During a visit to Goree Island, Senegal on Thursday, President Barack Obama crossed a rope line and mingled with a crowd of people who had gathered.

The crowd included several children who, according to a White House pool report, were donning white t-shirts with the caption: “Welcome home, Mr. President.”

Obama Lied- Top Secret Rules Allow NSA To Collect U.S. Domestic Data Without A Warrant-

You can bet your last dollar the lapdog media won’t call him on this.

OBAMA LIAR LIAR

Via Guardian:

Top secret documents submitted to the court that oversees surveillance by US intelligence agencies show the judges have signed off on broad orders which allow the NSA to make use of information “inadvertently” collected from domestic US communications without a warrant.

The Guardian is publishing in full two documents submitted to the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (known as the Fisa court), signed by Attorney General Eric Holder and stamped 29 July 2009. They detail the procedures the NSA is required to follow to target “non-US persons” under its foreign intelligence powers and what the agency does to minimize data collected on US citizens and residents in the course of that surveillance.

The documents show that even under authorities governing the collection of foreign intelligence from foreign targets, US communications can still be collected, retained and used.

The procedures cover only part of the NSA’s surveillance of domestic US communications. The bulk collection of domestic call records, as first revealed by the Guardian earlier this month, takes place under rolling court orders issued on the basis of a legal interpretation of a different authority, section 215 of the Patriot Act.

The Fisa court’s oversight role has been referenced many times by Barack Obama and senior intelligence officials as they have sought to reassure the public about surveillance, but the procedures approved by the court have never before been publicly disclosed.

The top secret documents published today detail the circumstances in which data collected on US persons under the foreign intelligence authority must be destroyed, extensive steps analysts must take to try to check targets are outside the US, and reveals how US call records are used to help remove US citizens and residents from data collection.

However, alongside those provisions, the Fisa court-approved policies allow the NSA to:

• Keep data that could potentially contain details of US persons for up to five years;

• Retain and make use of “inadvertently acquired” domestic communications if they contain usable intelligence, information on criminal activity, threat of harm to people or property, are encrypted, or are believed to contain any information relevant to cybersecurity;

• Preserve “foreign intelligence information” contained within attorney-client communications;

• Access the content of communications gathered from “U.S. based machine[s]” or phone numbers in order to establish if targets are located in the US, for the purposes of ceasing further surveillance.

The broad scope of the court orders, and the nature of the procedures set out in the documents, appear to clash with assurances from President Obama and senior intelligence officials that the NSA could not access Americans’ call or email information without warrants.

The documents also show that discretion as to who is actually targeted under the NSA’s foreign surveillance powers lies directly with its own analysts, without recourse to courts or superiors – though a percentage of targeting decisions are reviewed by internal audit teams on a regular basis.

Benghazi and Obama’s Ambition to Be U.N. SecGen

American Thinker

Washington rumor has it that Obama wants to be  U.N. Secretary General.

There  are several reasons that make that likely, and if it’s true, it throws new light  on a lot of Obama’s oddities — including his Royalty Bows, his Apology Tours,  his Muslim Sellout, and the Benghazi Cover-Up.

But  first — why would Obama be planning to become the chief of the U.N. before he  has even finished his second term?

Are Obama’s Scandals Indicating That He Has No Business Being In Office?

obamaVsAmerica

Freedom Outpost

With 3 different problems jumping up at the same time it seems that President  Obama is sounding more like Alfred E. Newman of Mad Magazine fame! “What? Me  Worry?”  How can a President not know a thing about what is going on in his  administration?  Is Obama really that out of touch with his people, or is he  just way too tied up in campaigning to worry about the United States or those  below him? Perhaps he is either incompetent or he’s outright lying.

The White House dumps e-mails that show just who had asked for changes in  talking points, all done while 4 men had their very lives in the balance.  Yet  it was much more important to ask about talking points while men were being  killed.  Obama throws everyone else under the bus, while he keeps on saying that  he had no knowledge in anything dealing with Benghazi.  People in Obama’s  administration are now being shoved out to the press so that it seems they are  the ones that did what he says he had no knowledge of. Even with President  Obama’s statements at a briefing on Thursday May 16, 2012, Obama clearly made it  understood that he had no knowledge of what happened. Maybe we should change  that concept to the most famous statements from one Sergeant Schulz, of the  Television show Hogan’s Heroes, where Schulz would make the famous statement, “I  know nothing!”

It seems that all of the e-mails sent back and forth to the White House from  around 3 PM until much later were just concerning what was to be given as “talking points,” without any discussion as to what was going on at the Benghazi  Embassy or what type of attack they were under or if anyone was hurt.  Nope, it  was all about the “talking points.”  It seems that maybe Obama is throwing that  out there with his release of some 94 e-mails to maybe try and alter the  discussion as to why he seemingly just went to sleep while others were  discussing the “talking points,” not to mention that Americans were being killed  and their bodies being dragged through the streets of Benghazi.  Now is that  just some weird reason to ask questions that have yet to be answered?  Questions  like, just what did Obama do after he got the one call in the evening of  September 11, 2012, a date when the entire diplomatic core should have been on  double high alert or of a much higher level of security.  Instead, our President  seemingly went to bed while brave men died defending themselves in Benghazi.

Now let us take a brief look at an article or part of it that shows just what  has happened and how much this single scandal has affected the Obama  administration and how it may well have an effect upon the 2014 elections.  We  need only look at this article written by Tad  Cronn.

Obama In Mexico: Without Latino Support I Wouldn’t Be President…

Weasel Zippers

Aided by his non-stop demagoguery.

Via TPM:

President Barack Obama gave a shout out to Hispanic Americans in Mexico City on Friday — an electorate with ever-growing clout widely considered to have propelled the 44th president to a comfortable re-election in 2012.

“In fact without the support of Latinos including so many Mexican Americans, I would not be standing here today as president of the United States. That’s the truth,” Obama said, speaking before a group of students at the National Museum of Anthropology.

Latinos voted for Obama over Republican Mitt Romney 71% to 27% in 2012, according toCNN. In 2008, Obama received 67% of the Latino vote.

Can a President Who Has Promised to ‘Stand with the Muslims’ Protect Americans?

American Thinker

In  Obama’s Audacity of Hope, he stated, “I will stand with the Muslims  should the political winds shift in any ugly direction.”  He also asserted  in Bob Woodward’s Obama’s Wars, “We can absorb [another] terrorist  attack.”  These are two straightforward statements that raise the question  of whether a man who has been seemingly obsessed with reaching out to “the  Muslim world” since taking office is capable of fulfilling his duty as  commander-in-chief to keep America safe and secure.

The  negative implications of Obama’s time in office will be felt for decades, but  one thing is clear. The U.S. President who does not recognize America’s  exceptionalism and who has promised to stand with Muslims has been unable to  keep Americans safe from Islamic terror — both at home and abroad.   Asserting that “The Obama Years are Synonymous with Terrorism,” a recent  IBD editorial  chronicled the terrorist attacks, both failed and successful, during Obama’s  term.  From Little Rock and Ft. Hood to Benghazi and Boston, terrorism  directed at Americans is far from waning despite Obama’s never-ending claims  of al-Qaeda’s decimation.  And unless Obama’s policies of appeasement,  political correctness, government dependency, leading from behind, and willful  ignorance regarding the Islamic threat to the West will lead to further  terrorism.

Are We Being Compromised by Barack Obama’s Murky Past?

American Thinker

Since  he first became a presidential candidate, President Obama must have spent  millions of dollars in legal expenses to combat dozens of so-called “birther”  challenges seeking the original documents pertaining to his birth.  As  president, he famously issued an electronic document on the White House website  in 2011; the document purported to be his long-form birth certificate, though it  is apparently a forgery.  In addition, he has taken great pains to hide the  paper trail of passport records, college transcripts, and other data — all of  which a prospective employer might require of a job applicant.

The  public’s right to know is but a minor consideration.  Our overriding  concern should be what unfriendly foreign intelligence adversaries, particularly  Russian, may have obtained on our president’s background.
