Obama Installs New Guidelines To Aid Spying On Innocent Americans Steve Watson Infowars.com March 23, 2012 National Counterterrorism Center given new privacy busting power New guidelines put forth by the Obama administration will allow US spy agencies to keep records on innocent Americans without oversight for up to five years. As the AP reports, previously the National Counterterrorism Center, was legally obliged to immediately destroy information that it gathered about American citizens if it found no clear links to terrorism. Following the 2009 Christmas day underpants bomber debacle, US representatives immediately called for the NCTC’s authority to be expanded, saying that there was not enough communication between intelligence agencies. “Following the failed terrorist attack in December 2009, representatives of the counter-terrorism community concluded it is vital for NCTC to be provided with a variety of data sets from various agencies that contain terrorism information,” National Intelligence Director James R. Clapper Jr. said in a statement late Thursday. “The ability to search against these data sets for up to five years on a continuing basis as these updated guidelines permit will enable NCTC to accomplish its mission more practically and effectively.” The NCTC, made up of a combination of intelligence agencies and the Pentagon, was created in the wake of the 9/11 attacks and has drawn criticism ever since for infringement on the Fourth Amendment and basic privacy
rights. “It is a vast expansion of the government’s surveillance authority,” Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center said of the new guidelines. Noting that the new rules contravene the Federal Privacy Act, Rotenberg added “The fact that this data can be retained for five years on U.S. citizens for whom there’s no evidence of criminal conduct is very disturbing.” An Obama administration official said that privacy will be safeguarded because there are strict measures in place to ensure that any intelligence gathered on American citizens “is likely to contain significant terrorism information.” However, given that the Department of Homeland Security now considers banal bodily activities such as yawning, staring and goose pumps as “suspicious activity” indicative of terrorism, those assurances are unlikely to appease concerned Americans.
Obama Shamelessly Exploits Death of Trayvon Martin Kurt Nimmo Infowars.com March 23, 2012 Obama has exploited the tragic and fatal shooting of teenager Trayvon Martin, who was shot by a neighborhood watch captain in a Florida gated community targeted in numerous burglaries. Obama: Trayvon Martin Case Is a `Tragedy' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueWsj zbwOxQ Obama made his comments during a press conference in the Rose Garden announcing a nominee for the World Bank, described as a “multinational development institution” by the New York Times (more accurately described as an international bankster loan shark operation). Obama said that “if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”
“I think every parent in America should be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this,” Obama said. “All of us have to do some soul searching to figure out how does something like this happen.” “Obviously, this is a tragedy. I can only imagine what these parents are going through. When I think about this boy, I think about my own kids.” “I think they are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves, and we are going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened,” he said. The New York Times tried to minimize Obama’s obvious politicalization of the case by stating that he avoided “politically charged specifics about the case.” It mentioned that Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney had also talked about the shooting. Obama’s comments follow an effort to turn the case into a major civil rights battle and cause célèbre with opportunists like the Rev. Al Sharpton grabbing the limelight. The Chicago Tribune notes that the case has drawn in many politicians and celebrities, many complaining that “the wheels of justice are moving too slowly” and that the suspect in the case should be immediately arrested and locked up. The case is shaping up into a major civil rights issue with the NAACP, Urban League, and a host of black elected officials calling for the suspect, George Zimmerman, to be arrested. Sharpton and the civil rights careerists, however, rarely if ever mention the facts when it comes to supposedly racially motivated crime. Thousands show at Al Sharpton's rally for Trayvon Martin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rlPU6jUD6o According to FBI statistics, more than 1,600 whites are murdered by blacks each year, a rate that is 18 times the rate of white people killing blacks. “Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery,” writes Ken LaRive, who cites federal crime reports backed up by the FBI’s National Crime Victimization Survey. “Blacks are three times more likely to use a hand gun, and twice more likely to use a knife,” he
adds. “Hispanics commit three times more violent crimes than whites, but the statistics are nebulous because sometimes they are classified as white, so it could be far higher.” For Sharpton and the politically correct race-baiters, however, such facts are irrelevant and distract from their victimization agenda and its goal of preferential treatment and a prized place at the government’s confiscated wealth trough. It comes as no surprise that Obama would exploit the Trayvon Martin case. He is a master at playing the race card. As journalist Walter E. Williams – who happens to be black – has noted, Obama’s racially tinted speech is “usually coded and subtle” and the Martin case is no exception. Following Obama’s presidential victory, it became obvious his administration, establishment Democrats, and so-called “progressives” would use race as a political bludgeon against their opponents. The liberal corporate media has played this game incessantly with chattering heads like Chris Matthews leading the charge in baseless accusations that establishment Republicans are racist. Ron Paul, in particular, has been repeatedly victimized by this sort of viciousness. It remains to be seen if Obama will drag the dead body of Trayvon Martin behind him as he works his way through the campaign season toward the election in November. It cannot be discounted, however, considering polls showing narrow margins between Obama and his hand-picked opponents.
