The Guardian's website on Saturday published and then subsequently took down an article on government surveillance titled "Revealed: secret European deals to hand over private data to America."

According to Business Insider, the article relied on information from Wayne Madsen, a former NSA employee. Madsen is also a conspiracy theorist. He believes that President Obama is secretly a homosexual, and that the Boston bombing suspects were government agents.

Here's a snippet from the now-deleted article, which Business Insider saved:

Madsen said the countries had "formal second and third party status" under signal intelligence (sigint) agreements that compels them to hand over data, including mobile phone and internet information to the NSA if requested.

The article, by Jamie Doward, was originally written for The Observer, a Sunday newspaper owned by The Guardian.

Steyn on the Democrat Voter Registration Bill a/k/a Immigration Reform:

‘…There’s all kinds of other things in this bill that are absolutely, that have absolutely horrible implications, including the creation of one of these 501c4 institutions that will in effect be administering U.S. citizenship to this new population of immigrants.

There’s all kinds of weird stuff that managed to sneak in there.

But the fence was THE ONE THING they had to do to keep on board, and they couldn’t bring themselves to do that, because it’s a physical manifestation.

All the other stuff, as we were talking about a couple of weeks ago, is JOKE stuff. It’s MEANINGLESS triggers.

They’re going to double the number of border patrol agents. Yeah, right. And even if they did do all that, all those border patrol agents are going to be harassing octogenarian Canadian snowbirds on their way to Florida.

All the other stuff, we know is a joke. The one thing with the possibility of being a non-joke was your fence, and that’s why even that wasn’t allowed to happen.

I’M TIRED OF THE WHOLE ‘WE HAVE TO PASS IT TO FIND OUT WHAT’S IN IT.’ THIS IS THE OBAMACARE OF IMMIGRATION.

It accords to the secretary of Homeland Security all the same powers of discretion that Obamacare accords to the Health and Human Services secretary. And this is simply not a respectable way for a self-governing republic to conduct its affairs.

And I’ve got no, I think there’s a serious issue after this and other events this week, about the institutions of American government.

And these thousand page monstrosity bills that these joke legislators don’t even read before they stick their hands up and vote for them is simply unbecoming to a mature nation.’

Because Obama doesn't follow the same political ideology that got us into this unwinnable war, you claim he part of the Arab jihadist? Be for real! Trying to bully the world hasn't worked for a very long time. Time to try true diplomacy. Threats to Iran & N Korea has gotten us nowhere but, closer to another war. Y'all talk big govt. It's definitely not big enough to govern the entire world. That's Obamas approach. Build America instead of destroying & rebuilding other countries. Homeland security prevents terror attacks, not a bigger army.
Let's see now...

Al Qaeda had explosives and RPGs in their attack.
When they got to the room Stevens barracaded himself in, they didn't use the explosives and RPGs with them. Instead, they tried to smoke him out of the room. Stevens died of smoke inhallation.
Then, the White House changes the intelligence and begins obviously lying for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack.
Sounds like a conspiracy, doesn't it?
I wonder if there are any related facts...
Oh, yeah. The goddam terrorists are in the White House every goddam day.
Kind of difficult not to connect those dots, isn't it?

you'd think after years of FOX trying, and failing, to do that that you'd get the hint.
I'm telling you what NBC reported. There was never any distrust under the Bush administration. Germans can read too. They know this administration targeted even fellow Americans who they deemed suspicious. This president clearly stated the opposition, i.e. conservatives/Tea Party, are "a potential threat to democracy" right before the targeting and inquisitions began.

But your illogical Fox fixation is beyond help.

'Congrats President Nobel: Obama Allies Behead Catholic Priest In Syria
Obama’s war on the Christian religion, particularly the Catholic variety, has claimed another casualty in the Middle East. The Vatican confirmed that “Syrian priest François Murad was killed in Gassanieh, in northern Syria, in the convent of the Custody of the Holy Land where he had taken refuge.… According to local sources, the monastery where Fr. Murad was staying was attacked by militants linked to the jihadi group Jabhat al-Nusra.”
A graphic video of unknown origin- linked below- shows a crowd of Islamic militants gathered in a circle around three men kneeling on the ground. Many of the onlookers were shooting video of the scene from cell phones and other devices.
Each of the kneeling men, in turn, is forced to the ground and their head is sawed off with a butcher knife.
It’s scene that has become too familiar across the globe.
According to sources familiar with Jabhat al-Nusra, they are one of the most violent of the rebel Syrian factions, with roots in the Iraqi civil war, where they fought American soldiers. They are also very successful, controlling large portion of Syria.
And, oh yeah, they are part of the Al Qaida network taking orders from Iraq.
"Let us pray," writes the Custos of the Holy Land Pierbattista Pizzaballa OFM according to Catholic Online "so that this absurd and shameful war ends soon and that the people of Syria can go back to living a normal life." Archbishop Jacques Behnan Hindo, titular head of the Syrian Catholic church said: "The whole story of Christians in the Middle East is marked and made fruitful by the blood of the martyrs of many persecutions. Lately, father Murad sent me some messages that clearly showed how conscious he was of living in a dangerous situation, and offered his life for peace in Syria and around the world."
Thanks President Nobel for helping him out, although, I’m not sure Father Murad really needed your assistance.
So why exactly are we arming Islamic extremists across the Middle East?
Explain to me just how spreading arms and radical ideas even further into the region are in the best interest of the United States and its allies.'
the looney left leaning media is on the side of a president who was angrier at Tea Party protestors than he was at mulim thugs beheading Christians.

but oh well, Obammy is on his african tour, but i'm sure checking in on those environmental issues back home--his new main focus. he's sooooo, well--"flexible" just like his campaign promise to the Russians. Obammy is Putin's bitch.

Just think of the momentum that could have been created worldwide had Obama not waited 9 days to respond to the student uprisings in Iran.
What an opportune moment to show support for those students and to take a strong stand of unity behind them.
After 9 days, it didn't seem to matter and certainly didn't have the same impact.
It still matters today . Iran still has that large , youthful population ,like in Egypt, Syria, and Turkey who see the virtues of Western and American-style liberalism as a civic good for their own country and not necessarily as a threat to the traditional Islamic culture .

The Government’s Mass Spying Is An Affront To Democratic Values
Let’s Also Not Pretend It’s An Effective And Efficient Way Of Keeping Us Safe
Top Terrorism Experts Say that Mass Spying Doesn’t Work to Prevent Terrorism

Never mind the fact that – if the government’s spying was really only aimed at protecting us from terrorism – the NSA probably wouldn’t put so many resources into spying on our allies at the G20 summit, the European Parliament or Chinese universities (or perhaps even our own government officials).

America’s terrorism experts say that the NSA’s mass surveillance program doesn’t make us safer.

An article on Bloomberg notes that real terrorists don’t even use the normal phone service or publicly-visible portions of the web that we innocent Americans use:

The debate over the U.S. government’s monitoring of digital communications suggests that Americans are willing to allow it as long as it is genuinely targeted at terrorists. What they fail to realize is that the surveillance systems are best suited for gathering information on law-abiding citizens.

OBAMMY’S ENERGY PLAN -- 7 STEPS TO IMPOVERISH AMERICA

On June 25, President Obama gave a speech outlining his energy plan for America. The centerpiece is a directive for the Environmental Protection Agency to develop new regulations that will make it virtually impossible to generate electricity from coal in the United States.

This is harmful and absurd for many reasons.

First, by shutting down existing coal-fired power plants, it will effectively destroy trillions of dollars of private property.

Second, since those plants supply about 40% of America’s electric power, they will need to be replaced at great cost, which will be borne by ratepayers.

Third, all proposed replacements for coal are significantly more expensive, so using them will drive rates up further.

Fourth, increasing the cost of electric power is one of the most regressive forms of taxation possible, since, for example, stockbrokers making $30 million per year will pay nearly the same additional amount as families making $30,000 per year, despite a thousand fold difference in income.

Fifth, as a form of business taxation, increasing electric rates preferentially targets companies that produce real goods over those that profit through speculation or the collection of legal costs.

Sixth, by increasing the costs of American goods, the inflation of electricity prices will make U.S. industry less competitive, causing factories to shut down and throwing millions of Americans out of work.

And seventh, by depressing the American economy, the plan will cause the loss of massive amounts of federal and state income-tax revenues, thereby accelerating the nation’s descent into bankruptcy.

In addition to all this, the Obama plan will severely harm America by preventing it from becoming secure in its supplies of liquid transportation fuels.

Despite some recent growth in oil production and a depressed economy that has reduced U.S. oil consumption by 15 percent since 2007, the United States remains by far the largest oil importer in the world. Currently we import about 4.4 billion barrels per year, which at a price of $100 per barrel costs the nation $440 billion per year — an amount equivalent to the loss of 5 million jobs at $88,000 per year each.

Furthermore, as a result of this dependency, every time the price of oil goes up, the American economy experiences a major new tax — payable ultimately through the world market to the state-run oil companies of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries — which depresses our economy severely. This can be seen clearly in the graph below, which compares oil prices (adjusted for inflation to 2010 dollars) to the U.S. unemployment rate from 1970 to the present. It can be seen that every oil-price hike for the past four decades, including those in 1973, 1979, 1991, 2001, and 2008, was followed shortly afterwards by a sharp rise in American unemployment.

Or, this:

How many SEAL Team Six members that were in the bin Laden raid when Vallerie Jarrett and Obama didn't have a clue was happening are still alive? The answer will shock you. If Vallerie Jarrett and Obama knew the operation to kill bin Laden was happening, it would have resulted in the same tragedy when the very next "secret" mission resulted in the helicopter descending to the "secret" location where a lone Taliban/Al Qaeda was waiting there for them with a rocket launcher.

How's that?
