Once upon a time, there was a nation of people who believed everything they were told by their government.
When terrorists attacked the country, and government officials claimed to have been caught by surprise, the people believed them. And when the government passed massive laws aimed at locking down the nation and opening the door to total government surveillance, the people believed it was done merely to keep them safe. The few who disagreed were labeled traitors.
When the government waged costly preemptive wars on foreign countries, insisting it was necessary to protect the nation, the citizens believed it. And when the government brought the weapons and tactics of war home to use against the populace, claiming it was just a way to recycle old equipment, the people believed that too. The few who disagreed were labeled unpatriotic.
So ISIS the JV team over there in the Middle East that seems to kill anyone in their path with extreme brutality is not really Islamic claims our President. But look at what he said exactly then watch where I go with this.
“They no more represent Islam than any madman who kills innocents in the name of God represents Christianity or Judaism or Buddhism or Hinduism. No religion is responsible for terrorism. People are responsible for terrorism.”
People Mr. President? As in personal responsibility? So the religion of Islam doesn’t cause terrorism, people do, but guns and flags cause murder, drugs cause addiction, and forks cause obesity.
Very well Mr. President but you only get to have this one way. You can’t have it both. What about a few changes to that statement?

When President Obama was first running for office in 2008, he promised that he’d go about “fundamentally transforming” America once in office.
But it wasn’t the 47-year-old Senator from Illinois — who went on to win two presidential elections — who’d bring about such a transformation. It was a 78-year-old unelected Supreme Court justice from California named Anthony Kennedy.
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released new Department of Justice (DOJ) and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) documents that include an official “DOJ Recap” report detailing an October 2010 meeting between Lois Lerner, DOJ officials and the FBI to plan for the possible criminal prosecution of targeted nonprofit organizations for alleged illegal political activity.
The newly obtained records also reveal that the Obama DOJ wanted IRS employees who were going to testify to Congress to turn over documents to the DOJ before giving them to Congress. Records also detail how the Obama IRS gave the FBI 21 computer disks, containing 1.25 million pages of confidential IRS returns from 113,000 nonprofit social 501(c)(4) welfare groups – or nearly every 501(c)(4) in the United States – as part of its prosecution effort. According to a letter from then-House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, “This revelation likely means that the IRS – including possibly Lois Lerner – violated federal tax law by transmitting this information to the Justice Department.”
