    Blah, blah, blabbity blah.

  2. fif says:

    Ha ha – they wait until the fury reaches a fever pitch, and then out comes the teleprompter. Is there anyone who really believes this crap anymore? Deep down – really?

  3. DandyTiger says:

    He may be boldface lying, he may be using pathetic straw-man arguments, but that’s all the Obots need to be pacified and smitten again.

  4. driguana says:

    Pathetic…greatest speaker of all times!!! what a joke….
    And once he gets his paper speech, notice the little threat…”people are sweating back there”…this guy is really pathetic! I grow more and more embarrassed for this country.

    • cynic says:

      A few years ago, Obama was talking without his teleprompter, and stuttering worse than usual. Some woman in the media had to explain that he’s so smart, his brain works faster than his mouth, thus, the stuttering.

      • Lulu says:

        Some people do think faster than they can speak but they often start at the end, go to the middle and then the first so no one knows what they are talking about. Stutterers are often completely blank. Obama is blank except for a script or if he is pissy.

        • myiq2xu says:

          Except Obama is the Greatestest Orator Ever!

          Back in the day great orators were supposed to talk coherently for extended periods without notes.

    Ohhhh, I like this lady, she’s challenging Lindsey Graham in the SC U.S.Senate primary, and boy does she have a point…….

    Sen. Lindsey Graham yesterday: “I’m a Verizon customer. I could care less if they’re looking at my phone records… If you’re not getting a call from a terrorist organization, you got nothing to worry about.”

    How does Homeland Security define “terrorist” again? Tea Partier? Gun owners? Pro-lifers? Constitutional conservatives?

      Brave New World – all the sex and drugs you want. Live life in a stupor and why would you care about anything else?

        Uh . . . where do I sign up?

          Everyone keeps taking about Orwell, but I think Aldous Huxley is closer to where we’re going.

        • Internal Exile says:

          Hmmm…speaking of Brave New World, there’s something to be said for a tyranny which sends its dissenters to pleasant tropical isles instead of gulags or mass graves.

        • Internal Exile says:

          In the real world, the tyranny of 1984 wouldn’t last very long, due to its inefficiency. Inefficiency was one of the things which destroyed both Communism and Nazism (Nazi efficiency is largely a myth. Nazi Germany seemed efficient because the old-line German industry and military structures it usurped were efficient).

          OTOH, I can imagine the tyranny of BNW lasting at least a few centuries. 😮

      • driguana says:

        Love the Brave New World comments! It was the name of my radio program in Santa Fe for many years….the intention was no so much Orwellian as it was to show that the world is made so much braver if we expand our musical horizons…wrote this for Mothering Magazine back then,,,

  8. DeniseVB says:

    Just shoot me now ….. I’m actually a fan of both, but this just sounds stupid…..

    backtrack could not take the time to mention D Day yesterday. but he could mention Dingle

  11. HELENK says:


    oh oh did the NSA director Keith Alexander lie to congress 14 times?

  12. HELENK says:


    this did not take long.
    per Dem senator , only a few congressmen were briefed on NSA program

  13. HELENK says:


    Jonathan Turley on the spying.

    from a commenter at No Quarter. she also mentioned that he was on Megan’s show and was very good.

  14. DeniseVB says:

    Facebookers …. go *like* Nancy Mace’s page. She’s challenging Lindsey Graham!


    • HELENK says:

      just did. she sounds like a lady that demands respect and would do a great job in congress.
      people forget that who they elect not only effects their state but the also the whole country by their votes in congress

    • Internal Exile says:

      How many other governments weren’t might well prove to be a shorter list. 👿

    • Propertius says:

      Three. NSA has cooperative agreements with Canada, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand. These four countries, together with the US, are known in the trade as the “five eyes”. Prior to the Patriot Act, the NSA used to obtain most of its US SIGINT from either GCHQ or CSEC.

  15. HELENK says:

    off topic but WOW


    we are getting more and more divided every day

    • DeniseVB says:

      I saw something similar in Tennessee, seems to be connected to Sharia Law? Didn’t trust the link. May go look for it now.

  16. DeniseVB says:

    Cool storm tracker thingy. The eye is near Raleigh, so looks like the worst stuff is to the west of us (heads up DT!) Just a wind and rain event here so far. (left click mouse and hold to move the map around).


    Or as I tease my sister, the only time she visits is when they name a storm after her.

    • HELENK says:

      that storm was named after my youngest daughter. I thought I had taught her how to behave in public, but I guess I failed and she is throwing a temper tantrum

  17. HELENK says:

    shooting at Santa Monica College. news breaking now. injuries.
    near where backtrack is, but so far not connected to backtrack

  18. HELENK says:


    it is going to get a lot worse in this country

    • foxyladi14 says:

      You have absolutely nothing to fear from the NSA, IRS, CIA, FBI, EPA, DHS, OSHA, or any other branch of government that has a proven history of destroying people’s lives!

      Unless you are a conservative, Republican, Tea Partier, Christian, pro-Israel, pro-lifer, pro-family, pro-capitalism, pro-energy, pro-Constitution, individualist, patriot, business owner, veteran, taxpayer, or some nut who believes in American exceptionalism. 🙂

  19. wmcb says:

    This “trust us” shit just pisses me off. I want truth.

    I admit that the outside possibility exists that the terror threats are, in, fact, *not* overblown, but are far far worse than any of us realize. Leaving aside Obama’s character for a sec, it’s possible that what we are not being told re: threats is actually really really REALLY bad. As in , “You’d all shit a brick if you knew how often they try and how close they come.” Maybe not, but it’s possible.

    And? Even if that’s the case, then come clean and cough up those facts, and let’s have the conversation as to whether all this is worth it. I personally will probably never think it’s worth trading liberty for security, but these assholes don’t even make the case for why that much security is needed.

    We can’t even have a rational conversation as a country about what trade-offs we are and aren’t willing to do, unless we have the truth. It’s OUR country, that conversation/choice should be OURS, not behind closed doors.

    • HELENK says:

      as a teacher told us many years ago ” you can not fight what you do not know”
      backtrack keeps saying the war on terror is over, but we still need the government to spy on people. makes no sense to me.
      when you get the feeling that your own government is more dangerous to your well being than an outside enemy, it is bad

      • wmcb says:

        Yep. And I understand that there is security risk inherent in *telling us* how bad the threats are (which is what Bush claimed as an out.)

        Tough. If it’s bad enough that you need to dragnet massive data, then you need to spell out precisely why. What’s the awful awful risk.

        Is it the occasional small bomb? Sad, tragic, but I’ll risk it. Get better at using other methods to find them, and start profiling these fuckers who keep coming in from goatfuckistan.

        Is it we’re all gonna die in the thousands tomorrow if we don’t do this? You’d better back that up with some facts, then we’ll talk.

        This is not “emergency powers to bypass the law to track down someone who attacked us”. This is creating a *permanent* spying apparatus.

        NO, I will not fucking TRUST YOU.

        He is spreading the bull better than most mechanical manure spreaders

    • Constance says:

      I don’t believe any of the spying is about terrorists because the Obama Administration responds to terror by calling it something else and making up lies. If they are gathering data on US citizens it is to use against the Obots enemies to protect or enhance their own power.

    this is weird petraeus at bilderberg to craft big data spy grid

      Barack Obama has ordered his senior national security and intelligence officials to draw up a list of potential overseas targets for US cyber-attacks, a top secret presidential directive obtained by the Guardian reveals.

      The 18-page Presidential Policy Directive 20, issued in October last year but never published, states that what it calls Offensive Cyber Effects Operations (OCEO) “can offer unique and unconventional capabilities to advance US national objectives around the world with little or no warning to the adversary or target and with potential effects ranging from subtle to severely damaging”.

      It says the government will “identify potential targets of national importance where OCEO can offer a favorable balance of effectiveness and risk as compared with other instruments of national power”.

      The directive also contemplates the possible use of cyber actions inside the US, though it specifies that no such domestic operations can be conducted without the prior order of the president, except in cases of emergency.

      bolding mine
      I feel so safe & secure

  23. I have this sinking feeling that somehow we’re being set up with the release of this info implicating the NSA. With Susan Rice’s recent promotion, I can’t help wondering whether Obama will position her as the one to “clean up” the NSA. Anybody else think this?

    Progressives, Democrats must stand with New York Times against Obama on NSA phone records collection

    We have arrived at a defining moment for the progressive movement in this nation.

    The New York Times editorial board, which has generally given this president a lot of leeway throughout his career, wrote a scathing denunciation Friday of the Obama administration’s use of data mining, claiming that “the administration has now lost all credibility” on the issue of balancing civil rights with national security.

    Every progressive with even a shred of moral consistency should side with the New York Times against the White House.


    Andrew Sullivan, MSNBC, Ezra – can you hear us now?

  26. HELENK says:

    we need a break

  27. Shorter Obama:

    Let me be clear: The entire United States Government is in on it. Yes, that’s right, we’re all against you, you being the average US citizen. It’s for your own good.

    There’s a context for what’s happening. Herbert Meyer, if I may quote him again, asserted that essentially what’s taking place in the United States right now is a coup, not a violent coup, and not a million artistic coup, but nevertheless a takeover of a government, and it’s being done by the Obama administration.

    He referred to it as a coup. I don’t know if he used the word “peaceful,” but clearly there’s a coup d’etat going. You know it and I know it. This is what animates us. This is why the Tea Party exists. This country was founded on certain concepts, principles, beliefs — and they’re under assault. Chief among them under assault is the right to privacy, and that’s what all this is about. So in the midst of this coup d’etat… I happen to like that formulation.

    guess who (and read the rest here)

    Sorry, I just can’t listen to Obama speak. I can’t.
    I try but I just can’t take it.
