Government obtains wide AP phone records in probe
Mon May 13, 2013 2:10 PM

The federal government seized records for more than 20 telephone lines assigned to Associated Press and its journalists in April and May of 2012. In a letter of protest sent to Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday, AP President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Pruitt said the government sought and obtained information far beyond anything that could be justified by any specific investigation. He demanded the return of the phone records and destruction of all copies.

Phone Records of Journalists Seized by U.S.

By CHARLIE SAVAGE and LESLIE KAUFMAN
Published: May 13, 2013

WASHINGTON — Federal investigators secretly seized two months of phone records for reporters and editors of The Associated Press in what the news organization said Monday was a “serious interference with A.P.’s constitutional rights to gather and report the news.”

“What we want, and all we want, is to have with us the men who think slavery wrong. But those who say they hate slavery, and are opposed to it, but yet act with the Democratic party — where are they? Let us apply a few tests. You say that you think slavery is wrong, but you denounce all attempts to restrain it. Is there anything else that you think wrong, that you are not willing to deal with as a wrong? Why are you so careful, so tender of this one wrong and no other? You will not let us do a single thing as if it was wrong; there is no place where you will allow it to be even called wrong! We must not call it wrong in the Free States, because it is not there, and we must not call it wrong in the Slave States because it is there; we must not call it wrong in politics because that is bringing morality into politics, and we must not call it wrong in the pulpit because that is bringing politics into religion; we must not bring it into the Tract Society or the other societies, because those are such unsuitable places, and there is no single place, according to you, where this wrong thing can properly be called wrong!”

Obama administration – Justice Department
AP phone lines intrusion

Obama administration – IRS
Apologized and admitted treating Tea Party and other conservative groups illegally

Obama administration – State Department (Hillary Clinton)
Lied for weeks about attack in Benghazi, that it was due to a protest over a video – to save Obama’s campaign
Press secretary lied to press about talking points emails – also to save Obama’s campaign

How much is enough? Had this been the Bush administration, you know each of these stories would lead with the two words “Bush administration”. But Obama is using government offices to do his bidding and they are willing to break laws to do that for him. The Justice Department, the IRS, the State Department.
What’s next and when will it start to sink in to the liberal media and public that this man is abusing his power or, at the very least, will allow these things to go on because they help him and Hillary?

You’ll claim he didn’t know about the IRS and/or the Justice Department. What happened to the staff who are the liaisons for these groups to the White House? If he didn’t know, he has appointed an incredibly less-than-efficient staff. If he didn’t know, he’s a terrible leader – probably looking for that ever important “plausible deniability”. If he DID know, he’s much, much worse. There is NO way he can be looked at in a favorable light after all these reports.

You can’t claim he didn’t know about Benghazi. It has been proven – as all the networks have now reported (finally)- that he did, indeed, know. He and Hillary knew that very same night. Hillary was briefed that night. My questions: Who issued the stand-down order and who came up with the idea to blame it on a protest over a video? Hopefully we’ll get answers to those questions. ALL to keep the bad focus away from his campaign.

Each one of these issues is worse than Watergate, yet the media allows him to get away with it. This doesn’t even address the huge problems now becoming obvious with Obamacare.

But Obama has people all over the country covering for him and making light of these very serious situations.“It’s not important because we say it’s not important.” They whitewash or ignore these headlines and, if reported at all, you have to search for the stories.

How much is finally too much for the left?

What is wrong with everyone? What else does Obama need to do in order to get his butt impeached?
What is wrong? It is this foreign unamerican culture that seems to pervade American society that is manifesting itself in all levels of government that has been purposely designed by those intent on destroying our way of life in order to force us to assimilate into a global entity by eroding our constitutional values.
Who or whatever is doing this, IMO, should be considered our mortal enemy and should be neutralized.

When Obama was giving his lies today in front of the press with the British Prime Minister beside him. I thought for sure, the PM would roll his eyes.
Anyway, Obama lied again today about the IRS. The order without a doubt came from the Obama Amin. to treat the conservatives with bias and discrimination and deny them 501(c)3 exemptions. Obama said: "the first I heard about this problem with the IRS was last Friday." Yeah right.
This man is still campaigning, there is no governing from him and there will never be. His intent is not to be a leader but to do as much damage as he can to America.
I hope you are right about Obama. I sincerely do.
I was right about him from the very beginning of this thread.
He is a blatant failure.
Right now the associated press holds all the cards and they are not very happy about this new wave of government intrusion into their private business.
I don't blame them one bit and the whole matter is akin to what had happened in Nazi Germany. IMAO.
This cancer needs to be killed before it spreads. It is of foreign origin and is being spread through the disguise of globalism and diversity. IMAO

Did you notice who Obama threatened when he wasn't getting his way on raising the debt ceiling? He threatened to not pay:- Social Security Retirees- Military Retirees- Social Security- Disability and
- Federal Retirees.- Now let this sink in really good...- He did not threaten to stop payments to illegal aliens.- He did not threatened to take frivolous benefits such as Internet access away from violent inmates.- He did not offer to fire some of the thousands of unnecessary federal employees that he hired.- He did not offer to cut down on his or his wife's frivolous gallivanting around.$20 Million already spent on family vacations.(One Million on a FL golf outing). All our money...why not?- He did not threaten to not pay the senators and representatives or any of their staff.- He did not threaten to take benefits away from welfare recipients or to stop the free cell phones they get.- He did not threaten the food stamp programs.- He did not threaten to reduce payments in foreign aid.- He did not threaten to cut back on anything that involves his base voters.- The list could go on and on. He is in full political mode!Why are we allowing this person to destroy this wonderful country with his selfishness and his lies? Have WE lost our blooming minds!!!!!!!!

Obama’s claim he called Benghazi an ‘act of terrorism’
Once again, it appears that we must parse a few presidential words. We went through this question at length during the 2012 election, but perhaps a refresher course is in order.
Notably, during a debate with Republican nominee Mitt Romney, President Obama said that he immediately told the American people that the killing of the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans in Libya “was an act of terror.” But now he says he called it “an act of terrorism.”

He is doomed. IMO of course.

Hysteria. If you don't want comments, don't post on the thread. Better yet, please stop posting paranoiac nonsense. Either way would work, but making demands doesn't work at all. You posted about me and called me a fraud. I think you're the fraud here. I couldn't care less about your patience, especially since it's obvious that you have repeatedly tried the patience of most posters on this thread with your incessant spam which keeps vanishing much to your chagrin. Too bad and so sad.
