Obama's bogus NSA plans mean nothing
By Larry Klayman

On Friday, President Hussein Barack Obama addressed the nation regarding the unconstitutional actions of spying on over 300 million American citizens by his National Security Agency (NSA) in an attempt to deflect from his newest "phony scandal." The president's so-called recommendations for his NSA and other intelligence agencies are vague, ill-defined and not genuine in any event.

In the wake of a host of these scandals, which now includes the NSA revelations by Edward Snowden, which have captured the nation's and the world's attention, and our successful lawsuit that recently resulted in the NSA being enjoined from further violation of our Fourth Amendment constitutional rights, the "Mullah in Chief" was caught with his dirty hands in the proverbial cookie jar and now has to appear to make amends to the aggrieved American people.

Obama does not have the power to change the law; Congress does. The intelligence community is extremely powerful and coercive, and it is unlikely the president's recommended changes, however disingenuous, will be implemented, particularly since the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) is opposed to them. In fact, after Judge Leon ruled that the acts of the NSA are unconstitutional, the FISC rubber-stamped yet again an additional 90 days for Obama's NSA and his complicit government to continue to violate the laws, contrary to a court order in our lawsuit. See

Obama knows this, and therefore his recommendations are for public consumption, not reality.

Any changes to the law mean nothing when the establishment, including Obama, is corrupt and has improper purposes in mind. The reality is that the NSA can do and has done whatever it wants regardless of any law. It has, in fact, done so. Therefore, it is important that the court overseeing our case retains control over the oversight process, whatever the law may be, since the secret FISC is part of the corrupt establishment and does not exercise adequate oversight.

The current law, if properly implemented, would not have given rise to this outrageous abuse of privacy and violation of Fourth Amendment rights. The government is only as good as the people who run it. The Barack Obamas, the John Boehners, the Harry Reids, the Mitch McConnells, the Nancy Pelosis, the Diane Feintsteins, and the Peter Kings of our government think and act as if We the People should be kept in the dark and therefore do not have a "right" to exercise our rights. They rule supreme. Rather than tinkering with the law, we should simply legally get rid of them and clean house. No law will function with these people in charge. They are like cockroaches that infest the body politic of the country and ultimately will spread a deadly virus that kills the nation.

Last but not least, Obama's bogus proposal puts the oversight and reform authority in the hands of Attorney General Eric Holder and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, both of whom are certified perjurers and criminals. Holder was the culprit who, among other crimes, as a U.S. Justice Department high official, sold pardons for campaign contributions during the Clinton administration and deep-sixed the now infamous Chinagate scandal, where the Clintons took bribes from the communist Chinese in exchange for passing classified information to them, among other misdeeds. During the Obama administration, he was caught red-handed lying to Congress over the Fast and Furious scandal, which resulted in the death of an ICE border agent, Brian Terry. Clapper, similarly, lied to Congress over the NSA's criminal conduct in spying on over 300 millions American citizens, without regard to whether they are under investigation for ties to terrorists or terrorism. Clapper, had he been an ordinary citizen, would already be indicted, convicted and imprisoned for this perjury; but Clapper, like Holder, is part of the ruling establishment that does not have to answer to the rule of law as currently exists in practice in our now-perverted republic. To assign them to allegedly restructure the NSA's spy program is worse than having the fox guard the hen house.

Obama's professed desire to leave our most private information in the hands of cellphone and Internet companies, and access it only when needed, is a complete sham. These companies, who are paid handsomely by the government for their collaboration and complicity in the constitutional violations before the court, are the lackeys of the corrupt establishment. Like children in an offensive minstrel show, they jump and dance when told to dance by our supreme leader and his henchmen at the NSA.

For those of you who remember the infamous Chinagate scandal during the late 1990s, the Clintons and primarily their fellow Democrats – the bribees of this communist totalitarian regime – sought successfully to extinguish this major scandal by proposing and passing new campaign-finance laws. This was the equivalent of O.J. Simpson arguing that with new laws he might not have decapitated his wife and her boyfriend. Pass new laws to prevent someone from killing again. And, indeed, naÔve compromised sycophants like Sen. John McCain on the Republican side of aisle and Russ Feingold on the Democratic side bought this Kool-Aid and sponsored a bill that went into affect that was designed to prevent future Chinagates. This legislation proved not only ineffective, but a total sham, as foreign contributions continued to illegally pour into political coffers, ironically including Obama's himself during the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns – where Muslim money flowed like the waters of the Nile.

So President Obama's sham proposals are just that – a ruse to lull the American people to sleep as his NSA continues to rape and pillage our privacy rights and to act as a sword to keep us silenced as he socializes and Muslimizes the nation to his designs.

It thus falls on us to continue to litigate our cases to a successful conclusion against Obama and the NSA, as this one heroic judge, Richard J. Leon, of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, is the primary hope to protect the citizenry from the tyranny of this administration and its enablers in Congress, short of non-violent revolution.
