Rand Paul Slandering NSA Officals
Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/19/2013 6:24:19 AM

On Fox News Sunday, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) accused Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) of offering up a "grab bag of misinformation and distortion" about the National Security Agency´s surveillance programs. King alleged the National Security Agency´s mistakes have been "inadvertent" and had a 99.99% success rate, which he said was better than politicians and those in the media in their work. He also said he thought the "whole tone of ´snooping´ and ´spying´ we use" was "horrible."

It is slander only if it is not true.

King has really gone off the deep end the last year or so and is doing nothing but spewing the Obama company line. For him to believe the spying was inadvertent really shows how out of touch he is with the way Obama operates.
Digging through General Petraeus email was inadvertent also I guess.

So the true colors of Peter King are on full display and people are surprised? He pretends the NSA is still being run by legitimate and patriotic Americans like in the good old Bush days. Either that or the obama-diktator-administration has got the "skinny" on old Pete and he is protecting himself. Shame on him.

From an earlier article,
"NSA audit found that the agency had violated privacy rules 2,776 times within just one year. The audit counted only violations at NSA’s Washington facilities — nearly 20 other NSA facilities were not included."

Mistakes do happen, but in this administration they happen way too conveniently and frequently. String together all the "mistakes" over the past 41/2 years and pretty soon you´ll wind up with a real ugly picture. Interpreting "mistakes" as mistakes these days just makes you a sucker!

FTA "King said he was ultimately "satisfied" with the NSA´s surveillance programs and that there is "nothing there that bothers me."

King is a moron,a useful idiot or both. The picture of the spying facilities in Utah and San Antonio scare the crap out of me. If we had an honest media, the pictures of those places would be on TV every night.

Peter King is a prime example of someone who has been in Congress so long he is totally out of touch with true American values. That he thinks he can run for President shows he has lost touch with reality.

Hmm ~ Paul Bots in orbit ~ as usual.

Interesting that Rand plunged in ahead on his NSA schtick ignoring the math (a truly infinitesimal number of ´errs reported)

That´s for the Kawackian crowd ~ still a lot of them there. They used to come up to Indiana for summer employment redeploying automobiles, cutting lawns, lounging around, then escape back ´down home´ for the winter to work in dogholes (small mines) part time for drinkin´ money.

Well, he´s gotta´ get their attention to win elections, particularly if the Democrats run somebody against him with large breasts.

Chucky Schumer probably does that with the New Yorkers he appeals to as well. But there he´d be holding up the Kawackians as an existential threat to the peace and sobriety of sophisticated New Yorkers.

We all got our enemies.

Unfortunately we have some Paul Bots who want to turn the uniformed personnel who do the overwhelming majority of the work at NSA into THE ENEMY.

That´s where the Paul Bot´s deservedly lose our attention.

Maybe Rep King has problems, but I seriously doubt any of the Paul Bots are reliable witnesses in that regard.

In matters of both war and liberty, one must prepare for and react to the other side´s capabilities - not just its prior actions. The Framers knew that when they wrote a Constitution to limit the powers of a central government not yet in place.

It´s not what the NSA may or may not have done; it´s what the technology makes it capable of doing. That is what must be carefully scrutinized.

Poster 11 expressed my thoughts. democrats really tow the party line. Even in cases of extreme hate speech spewed by a democrat, the most we get from other dems is a playbook platitude such as "I would not have used those words," followed by an abrupt change of subject. On our side, the media appointed two-faced mccain, graham and king as party spokesmen because they are dependable critics of Republicans.

Pity Petey King. Petey needs to visit the NSA and witness the sheer power of their data collection capabilities. With the flick of a switch they can record, filter, and sort everything you´ve done in the last 6 years, or more. Every purchase, every phone call, every web-site visited, every e-mail sent, any action over electronic media to which you´re traceable. Now, does Petey not understand the vast power this can give an unscrupulous POTUS against his "political enemies"?

Before 2008, the NSA was only allowed to spy on foreign nations, including Americans in foreign countries. Now, do you think Chicago-style politics had anything to do with this decision to broaden the powers of the NSA???

Scientists believe that over the last two billion years or so, there have been as many as seventeen times that Earth has experienced an Ice Age. They suspect an Ice Age when they see shifts in geological formations that are so severe that the only explanation appears to be glaciers forming and moving large quantities of land from one part of the continent to another part. Each Ice Age is estimated to have lasted for at least 100,000 years, with some lasting millions of years. Each was eventually followed by a period of gradual warming, resulting in the glaciers melting and

One of the hallmarks of the Obama administration is that it is among the most corrupt administrations in living memory. The degree of corruption and thuggery to which many administration members have stooped would make even Boss Tweed of Tammany Hall fame blush. But what’s truly remarkable about the Obama administration is that its corruption is so unabashed. Among the most corrupt functionaries of the Obama regime is Attorney General Eric Holder, who appears to be Obama’s alter ego and enforcer. From day one he let America know that he held most of its citizens in contempt by proclaiming that the American

The back-and-forth drama on the House Oversight Committee has gotten heated over the past few months.

A bombshell revelation has brought the IRS scandal to a new level. Judicial Watch has released internal IRS communications revealing that former Tax Exempt Organizations director Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice (DOJ) regarding whether it was possible to criminally prosecute tax-exempt groups she believed had “lied” about their political activity. Judicial Watch obtained the documents by successfully filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the IRS in October 2013, following the agency’s stonewall of four FOIA requests dating back to the previous May.

During the debates surrounding the adoption of the Constitution by the several states, one commentator observed that "the government should be so small that it doesn´t matter who wins." Well, the government is no longer small, and this year, in Virginia´s Seventh Congressional District, it matters very much who wins. Republicans are not the only people in this country who are dismayed at the collapse of conviction and principle in the party’s national establishment.

The ultimate party litmus test: given a veto-proof legislature, will Republicans finally start to reduce the scope and size of government? It looks like the answer is no. In 2013, North Carolina was just one of 25 states where Republican governors were given historic opportunity to govern alongside Republican-controlled legislatures. Despite conservative voters’ best hopes, any sensible mandate to restore individual and economic freedom flew out the window when the FY 2013-14 budget was approved, reauthorizing the formerly Democratic state’s blueprint budget with a tragic 2.0-percent increase in general fund appropriations.

The danger is this: In the USA’s upcoming 2014 elections, Republican elites assume that everyone all now agrees that conservatives ‘must’ support non-conservative candidates to win more elections. The GOP is operating on the belief that everyone is on board, simply because insiders have officially decreed it to be so. However, the grassroots in the USA remains unconvinced. Worse, the Republican establishment has no plan for truly healing the actual wounds. Elites want to avoid change more fervently than they do want to win elections.

Russia´s Putin has invaded his neighbor’s sovereign territory. He must and will face serious repercussions for doing so, and the international community must make the price severe. Unless we are willing to go to war for Ukraine—and I believe that would be unwise—Russia without question has the military might and geographic advantage to control the Crimea and the Russian dominated areas of Ukraine. But at what cost? Russia´s stock market is dropping precipitously and their economy is quite dependent on exports that depend on a stable Ukraine.

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.
