It seems the U.S. government and AT&T are much closer than we thought. The Drug Enforcement Agency has access to 26 years of call data for all calls that run through AT&T’s switches, according to leaked documents detailing the program.
The documents, acquired by the New York Times, reveal a program called Hemisphere, which was formed in 2007. AT&T created a huge database of all the calls that pass through its switches, including both customer and non-customer calls. Through this program, the government is able to subpoena that data and even pays AT&T employees to sit in drug enforcement offices to help with the data collection progress.
The Florida based National Black Republican Association has sent Articles of Impeachment to the Judiciary Committee in the US House of Representatives. The NBRA has decided to publish an advertisement in the Washington Times and provide a copy of the ad to every member of Congress as they return to work on Tuesday.
Frances Rice, Chair of NBRA stated, “Anyone may download and use the ad, which is camera ready, and pay for it to be in their local newspaper or magazine. The PDF was created by the Washington Times for their use in publishing it in their paper.”

Congress is dealing with multiple scandals (IRS, NSA, DOJ, Benghazi, Extortion 17, etc.) that raise questions about Executive Branch overreach. Congress will also be debating going to war with Syria over its use of chemical weapons against its own citizen. The ad states, “Congress: Wake up and do your job!”
Below is the Impeach Obama ad that will appear in the Washington Times and be delivered to each Senator and Representative this week. SEE LINK

It really insults my intelligence when I see so many people identify themselves as “liberals,” when 8 times out of 10, they are the exact opposite. Almost 80 percent of those that call themselves “liberals” are, in fact, Marxists or communists. They are simply too cowardly to say that up front. I have more respect for those who call themselves “communists,” because they are proud of what they are and truly believe in their ideology. Chances are you know some “closet communists” who hide behind the label of “liberal.” You can tell when someone is a liberal and when they are not, the language and rhetoric are angrier and filled with hate and malice.
This article tells very little but that’s the reason I posted it. Please click on the source and you will understand what I am saying. It appears to be a cover-up within a cover-up. But hey, that’s just my opinion.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. government may be considering military action in response to chemical strikes near Damascus. But a generation ago, America’s military and intelligence communities knew about and did nothing to stop a series of nerve gas attacks far more devastating than anything Syria has seen, Foreign Policy has learned….
The T-Room dot us
What if the WMD’s aka chemical weapons reportedly never found in Iraq exist? What if those chemicals were safely ensconced in Syria, then an ally in America’s War on Terror? What if the heated US government “attack” on Syria rhetoric coming out of DC has absolutely nothing to do with O’Bushies “red line” and everything to do with blowing up “evidence” of the Bush Cabal’s “Coalition of the Willing” war crimes?
When the alleged chemical attack on Damascus was reported on August 21, 2013, I asked then “Why would the Syrian government use chemical weapons on it’s own people a few miles from the capitol’s footsteps?”
We stand on the brink of an illegal exercise of military power in a part of the world we have no need to be in, except that we have a president who purposefully keeps us there by suppressing our own development of energy resources and embroiling us in their internecine warfare. We could have walked away from the Middle East already and left them to their own savagery, but the president insists that we remain inextricably tied to their historical need to kill each other so that we can overpay for oil, both monetarily and with American lives. Thus, as technology enables us to break free of dependence upon Middle East oil, our president bends over backwards to ensure that never happens. What sort of leader purposefully compels his country and its people to participate in practices and policies that are detrimental to their safety and survival?
Kerry has claimed the chemical attack on August 21 was a sarin attack. Yet the Obama administration seems light so far on producing actual evidence that the regime in fact did it. The administration has pushed the narrative that only the regime could have sarin. As we show here, wrong again.
Also in May, a UN Commission Of Inquiry found strong evidence that the “rebels” had used sarin gas.
Turkish security forces found a 2kg cylinder with sarin gas after searching the homes of Syrian militants from the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Nusra Front who were previously detained, Turkish media reports. The gas was reportedly going to be used in a bomb.
The sarin gas was found in the homes of suspected Syrian Islamists detained in the southern provinces of Adana and Mersia following a search by Turkish police on Wednesday, reports say. The gas was allegedly going to be used to carry out an attack in the southern Turkish city of Adana.
On Monday, Turkish special anti-terror forces arrested 12 suspected members of the Al-Nusra Front, the Al-Qaeda affiliated group which has been dubbed “the most aggressive and successful arm” of the Syrian rebels. The group was designated a terrorist organization by the United States in December.
