Barack Insane Obama went into what he thought would be an easy softball interview last night with late night television host Jay Leno. Only one problem, Jay Leno didn’t get the memo that he wasn’t suppose to ask the president any embarrassing questions.

Last night’s appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno went about as well as normal for Barack Obama, apparently. Leno brought up some uncomfortable topics, taking the President off of his economic campaign speech, and into unchartered waters — literally, as Joe Biden would say. When pressed about the NSA’s widespread collection of domestic telephone and Internet records, Obama insisted that the NSA wasn’t spying on Americans … just keeping their records handy, or something:
President Obama on Tuesday defended the National Security Agency’s (NSA) surveillance programs in a wide-ranging interview on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” arguing that the agency doesn’t target U.S. civilians.
“We don’t have a domestic spying program,” Obama said, according to the media pool report. “What we do have is some mechanisms that can track a phone number or an email address that is connected to a terrorist attack…That information is useful.”
Obama called the surveillance programs “a critical component to counterterrorism,” but acknowledged that they’ve “raised a lot of questions for people.”
This comes down to what people define as “spying,” apparently. Most people would define it as collecting their communication records and storing them for data mining, while Obama defines it as only listening in on calls and reading e-mails. That’s a thin edge of semantics on which to dance, and given the amount of information contained in metadata, even the edge might be illusory.
Ed Morrissey describes Obama’s answer as… “That’s a thin edge of semantics on which to dance, and given the amount of information contained in metadata, even the edge might be illusory.”
The rest of us, those who aren’t brain dead Marxist useless imbeciles anyway, would describe Obama’s response as a straight up lie. Given the recent revelations that not only is the NSA spying on us, but so are the DEA, the IRS and the EPA and the FBI, and those are just the agencies that we know about.
The Obamanation Administration is without a doubt the single most scandal ridden corrupt presidential administration in the entire history of the United States of America. They have actively engaged in virtually every form of criminal activity known to man in order to obtain and retain the office of the President of the United States of America.
On one hand they attempt to circumvent the 2nd amendment to the US Constitution, while simultaneously engaging in selling firearms to known narcotics traffickers in Mexico and Al Qaeda terrorists in Libya and Syria. at the same time they attempt to double down on the participation of the United States federal government in the single largest Ponzi scheme in the history of the world via the EPA engaging in global warming regulations.
As Obama’s head of the State Department Hillary Clinton engaged in a scheme to have a US Ambassador kidnapped and exchanged in a hostage swap for the terrorist who masterminded the 1991 twin towers bombing as a diversion from the Obamanation Administrations providing Al Qaeda SA7 shoulder fired Stinger missiles to use in the overthrow of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
For nearly 70 years now American’s have rhetorically asked the question, “How could the
German people have allowed Adolph Hitler to raise to power?” First of all, one simply must acknowledge that Adolph Hitler’s rise to power was not predicated on 100 percent of the German people supporting him. At no time did Hitler enjoy 100 percent support of the German people.
Like Adolph Hitler, Barack Insane Obama did not win election with a 100 percent majority, nor has he ever achieved a 100 percent support level. All it requires in a Constitutional Republic for a figure like Hitler or Obama to achieve power is for 51 percent of the population to vote for them.
Future generations both in America and around the world will be asking the very same rhetorical question about America as has been asked of 1930 – 1945 Germany. How in god’s name did the American people ever allow Barack Insane Obama to come to power.
The answer will be exactly the same as it was regarding Adolph Hitler. He came to power by a razor thin majority who fell for his lies, hearing only the false promises of things that they wanted to believe regardless of the actual evidence.
False promises just like his response to Jay Leno where Barack Insane Obama claimed that the US Government wasn’t spying on the American people. The sycophant useless imbeciles in the Marxist Democrat party will believe him, because for them, that is the acceptable price of power. Remember, those Marxist Democrat useless imbeciles only have one moral or ethical value, the end justifies the means. For them, Barack Insane Obama is the means to their end.
For Barack Insane Obama, until America becomes a mirror image of East Germany complete with our very own version of the Stasi, then, no, the Federal Government really isn’t spying on Americans, they’re just gathering a little harmless information.
If George Orwell had lived to see America in the 21st century one can only imagine what he would have to say. 1984 you say, no sorry George, while you were right about what was coming, you were wrong about the year. Change the books title to 2008 and you were dead on the money.
