The FBI never canvassed Boston mosques until four days after the April 15th attacks.
If the Russians tell you that someone has been radicalized and you go check and see the mosques that they went to, then you get the articles of incorporation, as I have for the group that created the Boston mosques where these Tsarnaevs attended, and you’ll find out the name Alamoudi.

WASHINGTON — Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday joined the chorus of GOP congressional leaders supporting the National Security Agency surveillance programs leaked last week, and the prosecution of the former intelligence contractor who disclosed them.

Citing details declassified by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, McConnell said law and the courts enacted the controversial programs legitimately, and that 29-year-old former CIA and NSA contractor Edward Snowden should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law for divulging them.

The Republican senator from Kentucky told reporters Tuesday the vast surveillance programs brought to light late last week are both legal and subject to intense congressional oversight — echoing sentiments by both House Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor earlier this week.

“He’s a traitor,” Ohio Republican Rep. John Boehner said Tuesday on “Good Morning America.”“The disclosure of this information puts Americans at risk. It shows our adversaries what our capabilities are. And it’s a giant violation of the law.”

“The investigation will be very serious,” Virginia Republican Rep. Eric Cantor said Monday on CBS.“If anyone were to violate the law by releasing classified information, outside the legal avenues, certainly that individual should be prosecuted at the full extent of the law.”

Snowden, equipped with a top-secret clearance, exposed the two programs last week, which include collecting mobile phone and Internet data usage of private citizens from companies like Verizon and Google.

In response to a similar question about the level of government oversight covering the NSA programs, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said “Enough is also something that’s in the eye of the beholder.”

“No one has worked harder on issues in this Senate than Senator Feinstein and the members of the Intelligence Committee, Democrats and Republicans,” the Democratic senator from Nevada told reporters Tuesday.“They have done their very utmost, in my opinion, to conduct oversight. And that’s why the American people, in two polls that I saw today, support what is happening with trying to stop terrorists from doing bad things to us.”

According to a Washington Post-Pew Research Center poll released yesterday, 56 percent of Americans believe the tracking of phone data by the NSA is “acceptable,” while 62 percent say investigating terrorist threats is more important than maintaining privacy.

Before concluding his statements Reid addressed the claim by some senators that they were not aware of the surveillance programs prior to the stories broken by The Washington Post and Guardian newspapers last week.

“And for senators to complain that ‘I didn’t know this was happening,’— we’ve had many, many meetings that have been both classified and unclassified that members have been invited to,” Reid said.“If they don’t come and take advantage of this… they shouldn’t come and say,‘I wasn’t aware of this,’ because they’ve had every opportunity to be aware of these programs.”

The NSA programs of acquiring broad amounts of telephone and Internet data have drawn support from both Republicans and Democrats, including the leading members of both parties on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Dianne Feinstein and Saxby Chambliss. While some in the GOP, such as Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) are standing by their principles, others such as Sen. Chambliss (R-Ga.) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) appear to trust Obama only when it suits their agenda.

In a statement, Chambliss says that these "lawful intelligence activities must continue, with the careful oversight of the executive …" This is surprising coming from the same man who believes that President Obama was misleading the American people: "What Susan Rice said was exactly what President Obama told her to say … They were about ready to throw her under the bus." He later added, "I do think that there were some politics involved in the message that the White House wanted to send."

Sen. Graham has even gone as far as to attack Rand Paul for criticizing the White House: "I see the threat to the average American, radical Islam coming to our backyard trying to destroy our way of life. He sees the threat (from) the government that's trying to stop the attack. I'm more threatened by the radical Islamists than I am the government agencies who are trying to protect us."

Now, here's the post again. Break out your Big Chief tablet and tell us why you support Obama and the Democrats leading the government in a revolt against the constitutional republic:

... anything to avoid talking about the real issue.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Yup. We'll most likely have to fight another war over the principles written in the Constitution.
What do you think? Do you think the Democrats are willing to fight a war to eliminate the Constitution?
Or, do you think they plan to fight a war to stay in the White House so a follow-on administration can't discover all the treason going on there now?
I'm thinking, considering there are Wahhabists in the White House while Wahhabism is at war with the United States, it is likely there are hanging offenses happening.

How about "when a version dubbed into Arabic was posted on the same YouTube channel and then copied and viewed tens of thousands of times more"
How about that?
How about this, dufus:
That video got a grand total of 17 hits from around the entire world before Obama's lies began to foul the air around the White House.

More importantly, the White House watched Al Qaeda kill the Americans in Benghazi on the real-time video feed and knew there was never any spontaneous demonstration. The Obama lie was preplanned.
Now, just why do you think the White House would have a plan to lie about an Al Qaeda attack before it happened?
Do you think that is connected with there being Wahhabist terrorists in the White House every day?

An agreement between Democrats and RINOs is not bipartisan. They're both Democrats.

But, in case you're confused, here is the rule written in English so simply any average person can easily read and understand it:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

This rule is non-negotiable. It is part of the Constitution.
Do we have to fight yet another war over this principle?
Are you willing to die in support of the Democrats' rebellion?

Care to explain why the White House lawyers reach into the Stratosphere to come up with reasons why that obviously fraudulent birth certificate can't be submitted as evidence in any case?
Do you think it might be because even they know it's fraudulent?

How NSA Surveillance Jeopardizes Obama's G-8 Trip to Europe

President Obama's task in Europe this week, already daunting as the death toll in Syria mounts and the pressure for a more assertive U.S. policy there grows, has been made even more challenging by the recent disclosures of American surveillance in allied countries...

...Peter Schaar, Germany's freedom of information commissioner, told Reuters he wanted "clarity" from the United States "regarding these monstrous allegations of total monitoring of various telecommunications and Internet services." Another German official has called for a boycott of the companies. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who is running for reelection, has said she will raise the issue with Obama this week either at Lough Erne or in Berlin.

"The most upset party in all of this, I think, is the Germans," said Michael J. Geary, an assistant professor at Maastricht University in the Netherlands and an expert on Europe. "The Germans were the most snooped-upon country, apparently, in March. In a country where memories of the former East German Stasi are still quite fresh, the response has been quite critical." Geary described Europeans as "peeved" and "quite annoyed" at the U.S. actions and said they have the potential to set back sensitive trade negotiations and do damage to transatlantic relations. "It's a major PR disaster for the administration," he said. "Now, they have really lost the moral high ground."
