I told you so….

Back in the old days of the antichrist Boosh, the left loved to tell us how evil his administration was for all sorts of things, but especially the cloak and dagger shit that the left always projects on their enemies. Of course, those of us that know the left better and realize that projection happens because the left is assuming others do whatever they do, are not surprised to find out, that in the age of Obama, the abuse of power is always directed at your allies and political enemies:

President Barack Obama announced two years ago he would curtail eavesdropping on friendly heads of state after the world learned the reach of long-secret U.S. surveillance programs.

Hah! Is this yet another Obama broken promise? As Glenn H. Reynolds so avidly points out: Obama’s promises all come with expiration dates and usually reflect exactly the opposite of what he plans to do. You pick the promise, and you will find that it was a boldfaced lie or only was kept unitl it became inconvenient for this administration to do so. Here is some juice shit that follows:

But behind the scenes, the White House decided to keep certain allies under close watch, current and former U.S. officials said. Topping the list was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The U.S., pursuing a nuclear arms agreement with Iran at the time, captured communications between Mr. Netanyahu and his aides that inflamed mistrust between the two countries and planted a political minefield at home when Mr. Netanyahu later took his campaign against the deal to Capitol Hill.

How much do we want to bet that Iran – the bad guy in this stupid deal that is assured to cause us so much more pain in the future – never had anything compared to the level of scrutiny that this administration put on what they labeled a political enemy. And let us not forget, as the left constantly reminds us through word and deed, that the real enemy according to them never is the people that want to kill Americans or Jews and destroy the west in the process, but the political enemies of the left. And Nethanyahu sure as hell is a “grade A” enemy in the eyes if this pro-Islamic fundamentalism administration. With information like this coming out, what more proof do you need that to these scumbags it never really is about the interests of the American people, but always that of the political left? After all, it isn’t like Iran has read anything but acquiescence from this idiotic deal either.

The National Security Agency’s targeting of Israeli leaders and officials also swept up the contents of some of their private conversations with U.S. lawmakers and American-Jewish groups. That raised fears—an “Oh-s— moment,” one senior U.S. official said—that the executive branch would be accused of spying on Congress.

White House officials believed the intercepted information could be valuable to counter Mr. Netanyahu’s campaign. They also recognized that asking for it was politically risky. So, wary of a paper trail stemming from a request, the White House let the NSA decide what to share and what to withhold, officials said. “We didn’t say, ‘Do it,’ ” a senior U.S. official said. “We didn’t say, ‘Don’t do it.’ ”

Yeah, the bad guy according to the WH was that evil Netanyahu guy because he had the temerity to refuse to go along with an absolutely insane and stupid deal that clearly allows Iran to build nuclear weapons and continue to pursue the agenda of genocide against the Jews and the Great Satan, and not the Iranian madmen or the fucking idiots in the WH that conjured up this terrible deal. And am I alone in getting a whiff of the old Clintoneseque lawyerese? “We didn’t tell them to do it, but didn’t tell them not to do it and then share it with us either”, wink wink. Par for the course. From the whole sicking the IRS on political enemies scandal that they have been trying so hard, to squash to the now all but forgotten gun running scam into Mexico run by the DEA that they hoped would allow the massacre that would follow to be used to piss on the second amendment, to the plethora of insane foreign policy debacles that make the Carter years look awesome in contrast (the Arab Spring, Benghazi, Syria, ISIS, Turkey, the Russians, China, Iran, and so fucking on and on). this administration has been about profit for the left’s political machine at the expense of not just the American people, but the world at large. And they don’t even worry much that this agenda shines through, because after all, with the DOJ owned and doing their bidding and Congress neutered, who is going to really stand against them and their criminal and down right evil agenda?

Stepped-up NSA eavesdropping revealed to the White House how Mr. Netanyahu and his advisers had leaked details of the U.S.-Iran negotiations—learned through Israeli spying operations—to undermine the talks; coordinated talking points with Jewish-American groups against the deal; and asked undecided lawmakers what it would take to win their votes, according to current and former officials familiar with the intercepts.

Before former NSA contractor Edward Snowden exposed much of the agency’s spying operations in 2013, there was little worry in the administration about the monitoring of friendly heads of state because it was such a closely held secret. After the revelations and a White House review, Mr. Obama announced in a January 2014 speech he would curb such eavesdropping.

Anyone still doubt that Snowden is a fucking hero even if you disagree with how he did what he did? And ask yourself who paid for this absolutely egregious abuse of power. Has anyone in this administration been held accountable? Shit, Nixon wants to retract his resignation. After all, he got run out of town for what amounts to a joke compared to the laundry list of criminal activity engaged in and gotten away with by this administration. A complicit and cowed media goes a long way. Now if they had only managed to get their lie about Benghazi being about out of control social media to stick so they could control the internet as well, they would really be rocking the Kasbah.

In closed-door debate, the Obama administration weighed which allied leaders belonged on a so-called protected list, shielding them from NSA snooping. French President François Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other North Atlantic Treaty Organization leaders made the list, but the administration permitted the NSA to target the leaders’ top advisers, current and former U.S. officials said. Other allies were excluded from the protected list, including Recep Tayyip Erdogan, president of NATO ally Turkey, which allowed the NSA to spy on their communications at the discretion of top officials.

I think the WSJ is not being accurate here, because I remember how part of the Snowden release showed massive spying by the NSA on the Europeans, and especially the French and Germans, targeting the leadership specifically (google it, it is out there). I am betting the only people not eavesdropped on are the Iranians, Russians, and the Chinese, probably because all the assets where too busy looking at the political enemies of the administration and those radical right wing fanatics that won’t just let team Obama do their thing. Now for the doozy in the story:

Privately, Mr. Obama maintained the monitoring of Mr. Netanyahu on the grounds that it served a “compelling national security purpose,” according to current and former U.S. officials. Mr. Obama mentioned the exception in his speech but kept secret the leaders it would apply to.

Are we talking about that monitoring that they never really told the NSA to do, or not to do, here? Yeah, I thought so. It is quite obvious to me that Netanyahu was a threat to the security of the Obama Administration and its plans to fundamentally change America as promised, too. Of course I doubt that many people in America, including so many Jews that are bought and owned by the democratic party, realize what this revelation shows this administration really is about. Can you imagine Boosh or another republican doing something like this and getting away with it? Think hard on that people. That’s the litmus test really, and the proof that we are all being had by these crooks. Let’s put Hillary in the WH so this party can go on. On steroids.

    Dammit, no.  Please.

     

    This is just an example of what happens when rules have too many exceptions.  We don’t spy on our allies, unless we really need to.

    We spy on Israel. Israel spies on us.  That’s what I say every time one of these things comes up.

    There is a big difference in spying for military and real national security purposes, and spying on what you consider to be your political enemies. And I think you missed the point that we were not just spying on Israel, but specifically on Nethanyahu, and then, because he was not letting Team Obama push a horrible deal on us all, but especially on his country.  Or the fact that this administration has spent more time spying on political enemies and allies, then on the real enemies of America, whom they have gone out of their way in defending. I guess being enemies of America themselves make the other enemies of America friends of this administration and all that, like the old saying says. But you can skip that important distinction in your continued attempts to cock suck Obama bud.

    This is just an example of what happens when rules have too many exceptions.  We don’t spy on our allies, unless we really need to.

    When you consider the political opposition to be your enemy while those that vow death to the nation you despise in the first place find a place in your heart for their shared hatred for America, you find nothing wrong with this despicable behavior. There was no national security implication here unless you consider thwarting the Obama administration in it crusade to pass a horrible deal that would hurt both America and Israel as going against the national security of America. Now, if you understood what Obama meant when he said he would fundamentally change America, you would see why they felt spying on what in the past were considered American allies was actually something existential to their mission.

    Let me point out – again – that no republican would ever get a pass for doing anything close to this despicable act of politically motivated chicanery. The media, the Jewish lobby we constantly hear about from the left, the left, the democrats, and Boosh haters (I did mention his name in the post and we all saw what that caused) in general, would all be up in fucking arms over this act of treason. When this idiotic agreement with Iran goes horribly wrong for the world, I am certain this cabal will pretend the fault is not theirs. My bet is they try to blame Boosh or Nethanyahu, because while being constantly wrong is part and parcel of being a leftard, admitting you are is never it.

    We don’t spy on our allies, unless we really need to.

    We always spy on our allies and our allies always spy on us.  The British were caught trying to spy on everyone who was at the Olympics. We just released a traitor who was giving some of our most important secrets to Israel for years (Pollard).  France engages in massive industrial espionage.  Our allies often have different interests from ours.  They often have factions.  If the President is not spying on all the countries, he’s being derelict in his duty.

    Alex, put aside your dislike of Obama and the Iran deal (a dislike I share). If Netanyahu thought the Iran deal (which he learned about from his own spies) was against his national interest, it’s perfectly legitimate statecraft for him to undermine it.  And if Obama thought the deal was in our interest and that Netanyahu was undermining our interests for Israel’s, discovering and opposing that is also legitimate statecraft.  Netanyahu is not a “political enemy”.  He’s the leader of a foreign state, one that sometimes has different interests than ours.  Obama is President of the United States, not President of Israel. Pursuing our interests, as he sees them, is his job.  If you don’t like how he sees those interests — and I often don’t — don’t vote for him or his party.

    We’ve had similar conflicts with Israel before (e.g., the AWACS deal Reagan made with Saudi Arabia or his visit to the Bittburg cemetery) and with other countries.  If this were Bush spying on France on how they were undermining our case for the Iraq War, no one would bat an eye.  This is not a scandal.

    Hal, you seem to want to miss the point I am making on purpose, man. It’s not about the spying but the reason: for the spying. Obama didn’t “tell or not tell the NSA to spy on Nethanyahu” for national security reasons like they claimed, but purely for personal and political gain. He knew they were about to shaft Israel and the American people, so he sicked the intelligence apparatus on his political enemies – and that’s the big distinction –  hoping that it would give him the upper hand to carry on with this horrible deal. Like everything with this administration, it is about what benefits them personally, and everyone else be damned. That’s the story here, and I am frankly not surprised you don’t grasp it. With these scumbags it is always about them, and not about anything else. Again, I point out: no republican would ever get away with anything like this. Ever. And that’s the litmus test to guarantee it is a bad deal for America that these criminals are allowed to do it.
