Bachmann: NSA scandal a “false narrative”; Glenn: She’s not dead to me but in ill health

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

The House rejected an amendment today to defund the NSA program that collects information on Amercan’s phone records following a fierce debate on privacy rights and terrorist threats. Among the people who argued to continue the program was Congressman Michele Bachmann, one of the few politicians that stands on the side of the Constitution over big government. Not surprisingly, Glenn was very surprised by her stance and reacted to her stunning testimony on radio this morning.

Republican Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan offered an amendment “as an addition to a $598.3 billion defense spending bill for 2014, would have canceled the statutory authority for the NSA program, ending the agency’s ability to collect phone records and metadata under the USA Patriot Act unless it identified an individual under investigation,” according to TheBlaze.

During the debate, Rep. Michele Bachmann said:

We need to deal in facts, and the facts are real, and the facts are these:  The only people who have benefitted from the revelation of classified information by someone who worked for this government, who intentionally and unauthorized declassified some of the most sensitive national security information that we have, the only result is that those who are engaged in Islamic jihad will have been benefitted.  And those that we seek to protect have not.  Consider this:  There is more information contained in the phone book that sits at home on your kitchen counter about each one of us than the information that is in the national security database that we’re talking about today.

Your name, your address is in the phone book.  Your name, your address is not in this national security database.  No other nation in the world has the advantage that the United States of America has on national security.  No other nation!  And we, by this amendment today, would agree to handcuff ourselves and our allies by restricting ourselves?  Let it not be.  Let us not deal in false narratives. Let us deal in facts that will keep the American people safe. When you look at an envelope, when a letter is put in the mail, is there a privacy right as to what’s been written on that envelope? No, there isn’t. Where there is a privacy right is what’s contained inside that envelope. That’s a Fourth Amendment right. Is there a Fourth Amendment right to the record that you called someone on a certain day? No, there isn’t. That’s a record. But there is a Fourth Amendment right to what’s in that phone call.

While listening to the audio, Glenn wrote ”Michele Bachmann is not dead to me.  But she is in very ill health.” on the radio studio’s chalkboard.

“She’s not dead to me, but she is in ill health. She has to ‑ this has got to stop. I have no problem – I would say on this whole speech if she would take away the false narrative. And that no one is storing (information),” Glenn said.

“She could say: Look, they are storing, and I’m concerned about it. Nobody’s reading your stuff, but they are storing. They are keeping record. They are keeping record on every single American,” Glenn said.

“What do you think the Utah data storage center is for, Michele? Please don’t treat me like a moron. What are they storing in there? They are not storing eggs and meat and they don’t have, like, a little veggie tray in there. They are storing our records, our information. They have more information, and this universal healthcare is going to make the NSA look like a rookie. They are storing information on every single American. All of our ‑‑ all of our movements, all of our e‑mails, and all of our purchases, all being stored. We know that.”

“Now, if you want to make this point, here’s how you make the point: Look, I’m on the intelligence community ‑‑ I’m on the committee. I get secret reports and I’m telling you right now this country is about to come undone. This country, the American people don’t know what a precarious situation we’re in. And while I am gravely concerned about the NSA, I happen to think that we are in bigger trouble because it is a more clear and present danger of the people who are coming in here and want to kill us than it is on the NSA. I’ll deal with that one later. We can have a completely sane and rational conversation,” Glenn said.

“But please don’t deal in your false narrative about false narratives,” Glenn said, “And if you’d like to get Michele Bachmann, I owe it to her to say that to her face. ”

Glenn said that Michele Bachmann is right on many, many issues and stands for the things she believes in, but he disagreed with her strongly on this issue.

    Glenn, when are you and the other patriots going to stand up and stop what is happening to our country? You cannot tell me that with all of they money, power and influence you and your friends have,  you can’t stop any of this. You can’t tell me that with all of the money and power you all have that you can’t buy a national TV station, you can’t buy a spot on DTV or cable, that you can’t influence the tide of events and where this country is going. We have been listening to you all talk about it for 5+ years – when are you going to DO something? ORGANIZE us. RALLY Us. Get the Tea Party back in full swing – DO SOMETHING – besides just talk, talk and more talk.

    Exactly my thought. The illegal actions by the IRS against political opponents weren’t stopped by the law, or regulations. They were only stopped by being exposed to the public.
    When the IRS takes over healthcare enforcement, this database will swell to include all our health info, and will include our name and address. It is ridiculous to believe that the NSA is not cataloging the name, address, phone number, occupation, degrees of separation, email, SS#, and political viewpoints.

    She may not be dead to you Glenn, but to many of us…  she is completely gone – off the reservation – never to return.  One almost has to wonder what information that the NSA is holding over her (And others) that would cause them to be such turncoats.  Whatever it is, it is probably the reason for her leaving politics altogether.

    We might start by vetting anyone from Muslim nations or background, before letting them into the US for starters. Yeah, I know, that makes me ‘racist’. Secure the border too. It was one thing when it was calls where one end was outside of the US… not that I was overjoyed at that, but it seemed more reasonable. Tracking call metadata for calls within the US, well, that’s a bridge too far. And a few years down the road when they go to grab guns, well, they can just find all the people you talk to and have DHS pay them a midnight visit. I’m not particularly fond of ‘precedent’ and ‘slippery slope’ arguments, but this is not good. Do you really trust them to not abuse the capability, given secret FISA court actions and gag orders? Like we trust the IRS to not target conservatives? Oops, never mind.

    Lisbeth952, it is not Glenn’s job to do this for us, it is YOUR job to act!  YOU contact your senators and representatives – both US and state – and tell them as far as your vote is concerned they’re OUT OF THERE if they vote against the Constitution -as it was written!  And then, by golly, you had better read it well, and the Federalist, and know what was happening in England and Europe that the people who came to this country back then were trying to change. As far as Bachmann is concerned, I do think she is being deceived to think there is any reason to save the outside images of mail without knowing what’s inside, the fact that telephone calls were made to and from parties without saving the contents of the calls.  Whose koolade has she been drinking?  No wonder she announced she wasn’t running again before she made this dumb speech!

    The government is already using that information and the proof is the many scandals that surround this administration who go after people because they can easily profile people.  Meta data on one system saves a key for the real data on another system.  There is no magic here that our data is held separately.  As Snowden put it, it can be used as a tool to discredit almost anyone.  Also, any single identifiable data point can match that meta-data to a real person.  I know, I’ve done it.  How do I know, I helped create the system and the government (FBI) was salivating all over it as soon as they knew.  So the NSA smugly says they don’t use the real data wittingly.  However, any one who has the results of their profile can connect it up with the real data.

Facts are so scarce if you blink you miss it.  I don’t care about anyone’s opinion; it is worthless although we are all entitled to have an opinion about anything but so many throw them around on the internet with gusto, believing they “know” what others don’t.  Is Michelle right? Is Glenn right? Show me! We can now start calling Michelle names but I don’t see anyone having anything to back it up.  I don’t like the idea of the government having my personal information or being able to tap my phones; but show me what they are doing.  Don’t run through the streets saying the terrorists are coming.

    I think that she really believes that they are just collecting the the people that are being called, who is doing the calling, and the duration of the calls.  She would claim that she has seen the intelligence data.  Yet, like everything else with Obama, the mission has changed from the Bush years.  And she is being kept in the dark about it.  When it does become apparent that Obama is collecting content and has already used this content to threaten them into line as with Justice Roberts on the Supreme Ct., she will have to do a mea culpa.

    The time to de-fund the NSA was BEFORE billions of dollars were spent building new facilities (such as the huge one at Camp Williams in Utah) and the program was operating at full capacity.  We knew it was being built for years; Glenn knew it.  The time to act was years ago!  De-funding it now is nearly impossible.  We are too late.  The money has been spent.  We need to start paying more attention to what the government is up to NOW, and stop it NOW, not after the billions have been shelled out. People in the media, including FoxNews, act like this is all a new thing. It’s not a new thing; we let it slip in there right under our noses.

    Remember when Michelle Bachmann was attempting to have Huma Abedin Weiner investigated and Boehner along with McCain were going to remove her from the committee?
    This is the daughter of a high ranking Muslim Brother/Sisterhood member?! This is why she’ll stand by her “Man”? Huma Abedin’s mother, Saleha, who is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s female division (the “Muslim Sisterhood”), is a major figure in not one but two Union for Good components. The first is the International Islamic Council for Dawa and Relief (IICDR). It is banned in Israel for supporting Hamas under the auspices of the Union for Good. Then there’s the International Islamic Committee for Woman and Child (IICWC) — an organization that Dr. Saleha Abedin has long headed. Dr. Abedin’s IICWC describes itself as part of the IICDR. And wouldn’t you know it, the IICWC charter was written by none other than . . . Sheikh Qaradawi, in conjunction with several self-proclaimed members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    I work in government computer technology for more than 25 years.  During that time I saw the possibilities that existed to capture information and use it.  I often wondered why it was not being done.  Surprise, surprise, surprise it was being done but by people elsewhere.

    I have one question….why do you store something you will say you will never use?   They collect it, so they say, to look for “terrorists”, so once they’ve “scanned” your info, why don’t they destroy it?   Why does it need to be stored?   Ask yourself, can we trust them to never use it?

    If what she stated here was actually true, then no court oversight would be needed to justify the activities of the NSA. Why exactly is there approximately 1.5 square miles of nothing but computer servers capable of storing trillions of bytes of information for the NSA in Draper, Utah, needed to store the phone book? ANY modern computer can easily store every byte of information of every person in the US that is contained in a phone book. 

    What is she thinking? I used to think that she was worthy of consideration, now I am just disappointed.

    Actually, Bachmann is very smart and very conservative.  She was one of the first to warn us about the fiscal problems with Obamacare.  During the debates, she was the first to call for it’s repeal and the GOP male candidates decided to jump on the band wagon.  Bachmann bucked the GOP system with her leadership in supporting the Tea Party groups.  A year ago Bachmann was demonized for bringing up radicals in this administration – particularly Muslim Huma Abedln (Weiner’s Wife), who is joined at the hip with Hillary.  Bachmann has tackled a lot of issues and been demonized even by conservatives.    Someone speculated that she was planning a Senate run.  Being in her district, I have not heard that.  Her abrupt announcement that she was not going to run for Representative could signal she knows something is up and wants to get the heck out of D.C. before it implodes.  Who knows?  However, in the end. I am very troubled that she voted in favor of continued NSA spying.  I am extremely worried about where all this data mining is going.

    I’m sorry, Michele, your speech to the senate about collection of our private data is WRONG!!  My name and phone number have not been in ANY phone book for years, maybe decades.  You guys have things soo bass-ackwards we may never recover from this mess! 

    If you guys enforced the laws already on the books, secured the borders, shipped all the illegals home, hunted down those that overstayed their visas/work permits (whatever), and better scrutinized those that apply to come here… get this and get it straight…. IF YOU DID YOUR JOBS AND LET LAW ENFORCEMENT DO THEIRS… There’d be NO NEED to collect the data of US Citizens!  And now, on top of that you are complicit with the President to create a national database with all sorts of data on US Citizens which is, first and foremost, none of your damn business and second, ripe for hacking (and don’t tell me you can keep it secure from hackers… the best companies in the world can’t keep our data secure… and the IRS posts it “on accident”).

    Anyone that has read the Bible (she calls herself Christian)  knows this is the start of the one world government where you need permission to buy or sell and have to worship the anti-christ. We are setting up the system to enslave not only the USA, but, the world.

    Once these things exists, then any government with cash flow, will have it sooner or later, Nuclear bombs are one example. You think China will not feel justicifed in stealing the info or systems when they hold between $500 billion to $1,000,000,000,000 of both our long and short term debt?

    The good news and bad news.

    The USA will probably not be actually responsible for the implementation of the one world government, the bad news is that is because one third of the country will be gone for our sins against God, we will not be in the position to do anything except watch.

    I am willing to concede that the Feds are not storing the content of phone calls, that is the audio. What is misleading about Michelle’s speech is that the Feds do not need to hear the audio or read the emails — which by the way, is not private, so the Feds can collect emails without violating the 4th Amendment — to intimidate or track the people.
    If the Feds had a record of respect and honor for the Constitution, if our politicians had a track record of obeying their oaths of office, we might believe Michelle, but sadly, the Feds have shown beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are quite prepared to go after the citizens through the IRS.
    What if some bureaucrat gets a whisper from D.C. to mark all the Christians in the nation? Just by matching the telephone numbers of calls made to churches or to whom the church office or the pastor placed calls, the IRS can quickly identify the network of Christians in the nation.
    The Feds already have a history of intimidation of Christians, forbidding chaplains to teach the Bible, forbidding churches to teach that homosexuality is sin. If Christians turn out to oppose, politically, the Federal government, getting to the Christians to persecute them is a simple query against that telephone database.
    The record of our phone calls might not be protected under privacy laws, but that still doesn’t give the Federal government the right to collect, aggregate and analyze that data. We, the people, say so, Michelle.
    Now, that you have missed this obvious point coming out in opposition to the people, I wonder who got to you to perpetuate this false notion that because the data about our phone calls are not protected under the 4th amendment, it give the Feds the right to parse and track our movements. You know, who got to you like they got to John Roberts to rewrite Obamacare from the Bench and then rule it constitutional. You know, like who got to Marco Rubio to go from border closed first before legalization to legalization first and border later.
    The damage you inflicted upon yourself by insulting the American people thinking they are this bereft of logic and understanding the wicked DNA of governments, will show in the next election, I am sure.
    We need politicians who are doing the right thing because they are convinced of it, not because the mob flood their phone lines to convince them to change. We need politicians who would obey their oaths of office without us reminding them about its contents. This is not it, Michelle. This declaration you made on the floor here, is akin to the one Nancy Pelosi made about voting for Obamacare to know what’s in it.
    I am sooooo disappointed.

    I did not bother to read this story, and I did not hear Bachman on Beck.  If I would have had it on when she was on, I would have turned it off and gone and done something else.  Bachman is an embarrassment to Republicans and the Tea Party in particular.  It is difficult to understand how otherwise intelligent people can support her like they do.  Sure, she is conservative and she votes the way I would want her to vote.  That is where it stops.  She was going on the Sunday morning T.V. programs during the campaign and making a fool of herself, but the blind conservatives couldn’t see it.  A commentator would ask her a question, and she would wonder off into never, never land usually throwing out her little talking points.  She started the bashing of her fellow Republicans during the debates when it became obvious that she couldn’t get more than 2% of the vote.  That should ring some bells in the conservatives who continue to support this lady, like Glenn  Beck.  You people need to let her go and encourage her not to run for anything and she can return to being a tax attorney like she talks about so much.  Yeah, she’s a nice lady.  She shouldn’t be elected to anything above city council.  I’m a nice guy, but you wouldn’t want to vote for me.  I would be better than any democRAT, that’s for sure, but there are much more qualified people than me and there are much more qualified people than Bachman.

    The NSA makes a distinction between “storing” data and ”collecting” data. They are “storing” every bit of information on us that they can get their hands on. They believe this is legal as long as they don’t look at the data without FISA permission. “Collecting” data refers to the process they use to gather data on someone after getting FISA permission. If the FISA courts are following the law, they should only give permission when a clear connection to terrorism has been demonstrated. So when the NSA says they only “collect” data on phone numbers connected with terrorism, Michele wrongly thinks that is the only information they are “storing” as well. But that’s not true, and she would know that if she was paying attention to congressional hearings. 

    The NSA let the cat out of the bag when they admitted to making mistakes in the past where they entered the wrong phone number into their computer and pulled up personal information on an innocent American. When they discovered their mistake, they told the FISA court, which ordered them to delete the data they had collected on the wrong person. But what does that tell you? The wrong phone number got them all kinds of personal information on an innocent American, one who had no connection to terrorists. This means they are not just storing “phone numbers” as Michele claims. They are storing the personal data of Americans unconnected to terrorism just in case they need it in the future. It disappoints me that Michele did not pay attention to the NSA hearings or is unable to understand what they revealed. The only other conclusion is that she is deliberately lying to the American people.

    Sorry, but Michelle is not being naive here.  Her real ideologies are coming out.  She is not running for office again, so what’s to lose.  It does not take rocket science to know that if I take the IRS data that they have on each of us, along with all the other data including NSA, then this government has like information just like,Russia, China, Germany, Canada and numerous other countries around the world.  The data that NSA on other agency has been gathered since way back in 1910′s possibly even earlier; i.e.; data collected for the purpose of stopping the booze run during proabition, or data collected on the mafia and mobs.  No collecting data on citizens of this country is not new – they have just come into the 21st century is all.

    What the NSA is doing is treasonous and anyone who has authorized their actions is a traitor.  The Congress cannot authorize something that is forbidden by the Constitution, and neither can some puppet judge.

    So people it is time to clean house in Washington DC.  Do not vote for anyone that supports the NSA’s Prism program.  Impeach Barry Hussein, try him for treason and execute him.  Every member of his cabinet serving now or in the past, must be tried for treason.  Fast & Furious, Benghazi, the IRS targeting and the NSA spying on Americans.  Not to mention $17 Trillion in debt, Barry Hussein has been president for 5 years and never passed a budget, record unemployment and underemployment, and an economy that keeps going down, while gas and food prices skyrocket.  I think we’ve seen enough.  Barry Hussein is an imposter and a complete failure.

    Good avenue of thought.  What could possibly be so huge, so overwhelmingly imperative that Bachmann would side with allowing the NSA to spy on us?  She sits on the Intelligence Committee, so there must be some very compelling intel. Maybe a nuclear threat that must be thwarted?  A synchronized, massive attack within the country by terrorists?  Every day we read about the personnel within our government who have connections to al Qaeda.  Moles.  The same thing happened back in the day of Senator McCarthy and he was likewise vilified.  Could it be that we are close to destruction?  That being said…which government entities have not been compromised?  Is the NSA on our side?

  • Anonymous

    I think Michele’s argument was very persuasive and on point.  They are not
    storing everyone’s conversations just what’s on the envelope, using her
    metaphor.  Conspiracy theories about how they could take it to a higher level
    and store the conversations is hysterical and diminishes the credibility of the
    person advancing the narrative, (sorry Glenn)  It is hard for the average person
    to comprehend what is going on in the effort to keep us safe, but it does no
    good to fill our heads with this kind of hysteria.  As I understand it, they are
    storing all this data so when they become aware of a terrorist making contact
    with a certain US individual, they will more easily be able to establish the tree
    of further contacts to look into and perhaps stop a terrorist event.  Whereas it
    is not reassuring that they were not able to foil the Boston Marathon bombing,
    we should not give up on a program that intelligence professionals at the highest
    levels are so positive about.  If you are worried about being caught up in a web by
    a wrong number dialed by a terrorist, blame that on the traitor who brought all
    this to the world’s attention.  I’m sure if your Grannie took a call from Abdul she’d
    have been cleared of suspicion in short order.  Now that the bad guys know how
    this works, there will surely be many more “wrong numbers” making the job of the
    NSA that much more difficult.

    Whoa Guys! Stunned by the headline then begin to read the article and I love it because Bachman and Beck are opening a healthy dialog on this and I am waiting anxiously to see the debate. This is exactly the kind of thing that is missing in government now. I give you, “We have to pass the bill before we know what is in it!”
    Bachman has the inside edge on Beck because she is an insider to info we, nor Beck, has access to. Beck vocalized probably what I would because his concerns are so very genuine because I see the same things he is and the same questions come to mind.
    Now listening to Bachman speak I am reminded of the real danger from outside our boarders and I realize the need for dialog before the decision is made to fund this agency. NSA has a place but I think they need more scrutney if they are allowed to collect any more information on Americans.
    I would have no problem with the huge complex in Utah as long as we the people have control over it and can elect people like Bachman to oversee it. Barock Obama, Eric Holder and his bunch? Not so much!
    Let the debate begin! If it will be on Beck’s TV then that is incentive for me to subscribe.
    If Holder or the POTUSA wants to get in on it then go at it. And I don’t want to see any media making nonsensical questions to be asked. That is exactly why I pay no attention to the campaign so-called debates and that is why most others have things more important to do than watch that nonsense!

    The false narrative is that it is a question of liberty v safety.  Those are NOT equal things.  Safety derives FROM our liberty and the default position MUST always be liberty.

    Michele is being viciously attacked and intimidated by the Obama administration. Holder’s DOJ just announced a sweeping investigation by the House Ethics Committee of her. The same way they destroyed so many on our side. Here’s a short list:  

    Stevens, Alaska

    Meg Whitman, CA

    Christine O’Donnell, Delaware

    Sharon Angle, Nevada

    Michele and Sarah Palin - too many to display and so many others were targeted. This is how they eliminate the competition or opposition. Conservative GROUPS are not the only targets.They will do this to any and all opposition …so beware!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YprzfnLRTi4&list=FLTiL1q9YbrVam5nP2xzFTWQ&index=6  This is a video about Congress’s complicity about the nuclear dangers, etc.  He mentions Congress as complicit in the lies.  This video (very interesting and just like their NOP) is extremely telling. Speaks volumes about honesty and the huge lack thereof. I cannot help but wonder whom Congressfolk get their information from.  Perhaps Michelle B is being fed trash, and being told that this is how it should taste.  We ALL get our info from somewhere.  WHOM does Michelle trust to give her the most honest information available, and who/m ‘owns’ that/those person/(s)?  She is ‘buying trash’, but from whom?

    Michelle Bachmann has lost her marbles on this because there’s NO ONE who can outright deny…..including her…..that Americans are not being spied on. That’s why her statements are just complete tommy rot!
    She should know from her position as a representative that government spying on the public is an accepted thing, and what is so astonishing is that she’s obviously clueless that she herself is being spied on… as are all opponents of the Obama administration.
    I am stunned that she’d make such outrageous statements and actually believes them.

     The IRS has not stopped any of its subversive actions against tax payers and it is ludicrous for anyone to believe they will. As a matter of fact Congress just increased the amount of money it gives to the IRS so that proves that Congress is apparently not bothered by all the egregious behavior of the IRS.
    It’s like all the other scandals…..there’s lots of bluster and name calling but no one ever gets charged with a crime and put in prison.

     We could also starve the beast by having each state stop sending tax revenues to the federal government. Many of the states are fed up with the federal overreach but none of them apparently have the courage to send a strong message by simply de-funding the feds. The federal government has NO money of its own other than what the people send to it, so it shouldn’t be hard to figure out.

    If Romney had won the election, Beck would be denouncing Snowden as a traitor, and you’d all be jumping on that bandwagon like good little lemmings.

    Actually that’s the entire point of the new facility in Utah. They ARE recording everything. Every form of digital communication is being recorded and sifted using the most advanced software on earth. What good would simple numbers do them? The content of the calls is what is important and it is easy to use the computers to data mine. Data mining phone numbers is not beneficial without the content. It will tell them nothing. Word recognition technology is well beyond what most of us understand now.

    You and I do not disagree. What I was saying was that given that the U.S. is, for the first time in its history, uniquely vulnerable to lethal attack and invasion by forces from without, it behooves us NOT to hand them the tools with which they can effectively engage in the mass murder, rape, mutilation, and enslavement of the American people. People tend to focus on the danger posed by the guvmint alone. Yes, that danger is enormous and horrible to behold. And I submit that the danger posed by a guvmint which hands its subjects over to the enemy, whether through treachery or incompetence, has to be considered as well. These are dangerous times. Much more dangerous than at any time in the past.

    Beck would also be saying the patriotic, law-abiding Americans have nothing to fear from indefinite detention and NSA wiretaps, just as he said when Bush was president.

    Everyone here LOVED M. Bachmann until Glenn Beck told his lemmings not to. Master of manipulation, Beck has turned you against her because of one vote that he would be supporting if we had a Republican for President just as he would also be saying the patriotic, law-abiding Americans have nothing to fear from indefinite detention and NSA wiretaps as he said when Bush was president.

    Did you notice?
    She said that the government isn’t collecting information.
    Then she omits the truth about the government collecting certain kinds of information.
    Also (I could be wrong) isn’t there some kind of confidentiality law regarding whom you contact and stuff? I mean, all it takes is a legit warrant to gather this information.
    But I have a feeling that the government is more concerned with what’s EASY than what is right.

    Just when I was getting to like her again after I found out she took govt $$ after talking against it during the last time she ran for POTUS. She is shilling for big bro. She just died on the operating table, so to speak, for me. She has gone from pretty sick to gone, as far as I am concerned.

    Phone book? I’m not in any PB. I hadda get rid of my land line to save $.

    If MB is trying to convince me that big bro is not collecting EVERY THING it can about every one it can, she has a very tough job.

    Big bro has been keeping a data base as long as it’s been possible. If I am wrong I’ll apologize. But given the state of affairs today as we near the mark of the beast I don’t think I’ll have to say “I’m sorry” to any one.

    Ever notice how when something happens in DC the Emails of people are revealed? What, they give them up willingly?

    Then there are all the Fusion Centers & the thing they are building in Utah. The collection center in Utah & the other one being built will have enough computing power to monitor all the transactions of a cashless society. Is that the real reason, or one of them, for the thing in Utah? IMO it is.

    I disagree with Michelle on this one also. I don’t like that the governement is storing my emails my comments and my purchasing habits. This is being done to keep me safe? So they can go back connect the dots and see what they missed. I am very upset the government is doing this to me an American Citizen who has done nothing wrong. Saving data for a rainy day, should not be allowed. The people that argue this is necessary to keep us safe are giving up their constitutional right to privasy. The government can not be trusted to do the right thing, This system is ripe for abuses. I for one do not support it.

    Thank you for demonstrating how well manipulated you are. You forget how much Beck embraced the national security state under Bush. You wouldn’t know a “true cogent idea” if one bitch-slapped you with it.

    What has the Administration and the NSA gotten from Michelle’s communications along with my Congressman’s ( Randy Forbes ) communications for them both to all of a sudden come out for complete violation of our Constituanal rights allowing the NSA to record every conversation and electronic message we write. They can access the cameras in our house, our vehicle Computers, turn on our cameras in our computers and TV sets inside our homes without our knowledge,she thinks this is alright. What a huge disappointment, in her and my own congressman. I find this almost impossible to believe in both of them.

    Beck continues his campaign to undermine our security. His support for the traitor Snowden, a Russian spy who fled to Moscow, and now his demand we end a program that he used to support, shows what Beck really is: a traitor.

     The national security program as it was functioning under Bush was not what it has become. Remember – there was no giant data center where they stored everyone’s phone calls and their contents without warrant.  Keep showing your ignorance Victor.

    Hi, I’m from the government and I’d like to make you aware that every word, every email, every call, every text, etc…is being collected. It’s not that we don’t trust you at this moment. We do, but let’s be honest…things change— you will change. So really it’s that we don’t trust a future you…a more informed, less compliant and apathetic you. Now if in the unlikely event you remain a good little sheep and never question our version of the story we give to you, we’ll never need to dig into all that dirt we have been keeping for a rainy day. However, if on the other hand you do question, defy or interfere–well let’s be frank…it won’t be pretty for you or children or spouse or family or employer or church or friends. You see, all those connections have been made using the benign info we are gathering so that we have leverage over a people who would never willingly accept what we’re planning to shove down their throats. This is what democracy looks like now. This has been a public service announcement. Please stand by.

    I heard your interview with Rep. Bachmann this morning.  She believes someone in the government when all they have done is lie to us and to Congress! Unbelievable!  She used to be one of my favorite representatives (although I live in Texas and like Rep. Ted Poe), I think she is now ‘the government’ and do not believe I can trust her either, too bad.  I had decided to vote for her for President until she dropped out.

    I quit drinking on November 17, 1982 at 9 p.m. Central Standard Time at age 31 – now I’m wondering, Glenn, now that I’ve turned 61 and now that I’ve been sober for 30 years, could I please start drinking again? After listening to the woman I once supported with my blogs and my bucks as she is now shilling for the NSA bug-meisters and (can you believe it? I can’t!) the Obama Administration, I suddenly feel like I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY need a blackout right about now.

    For the first time in my life, I’m sorry I don’t live in Minnesota (so I could organize a true conservative to run against this political oreo – conservative on the outside, but an Obama/NSA front organization on the inside …
