Washington and the National Security Agency (NSA) are operating on two sets of books. One that everyday Americans have to go by and a second set for President Barack Obama, his benefactors and political allies. It’s the U.S. Constitution versus Executive Orders. The U.S. citizens and journalists versus President Obama.
Can anyone cite one executive order that has been overturned by Congress or the Judiciary? If not, then where’s the balance of power? Wake up. It doesn’t exist.
Corruption and abuse cannot be detected and exposed when there are no constitutional checks and balances in play. Otherwise freedom of speech and a free press operate in name only. They are dead when our system is operated exclusively or more precisely—tyrannically by executive orders, in this case signed by one person—the President, who is currently Barack Obama. This voids constitutional protections, operations and jurisdictions. Congress and the Judiciary are merely rubber stamps for executive mandates. This is un-American.
Not only is Obama’s National Security Agency (NSA) under fire for targeting U.S. citizens inside the United States and their worldwide espionage practices, they are stonewalling journalists’ ability to expose abuses within the spy agency itself by denying Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests by hiding behind Executive Order 13526. Even more disturbing, the NSA dismisses its U.S. victims who seek redress from NSA misconduct, and the journalists who try to expose it, as potential national security threats to the United States. Who is watching the watchers?
