Is Obama Lying About Big Brother?

As of this moment, Obama is making the case that the US government is not eavesdropping on phone calls. Specifically, he said "nobody is listening to your phone calls - they are just looking at phone numbers and duration of calls" and concluded that the NSA was only engaged in "modest encroachments." It was unclear if that clarification was meant to put to rest fears that Big Brother has made personal privacy a thing of the past. He further went on to add that the telephone surveillance program is fully vetted by Congress and supervised by the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Court [7](FISA). In other words: Obama is making the case that the NSA's Big Brother supervision is perfectly legal and not only that, there are checks and balances and neither the telephonic snooping nor the internet supervision is anything to be concerned about. There is one problem: Obama is lying.

Back in April 2009, three months into the Obama regime, none other than the NSA admitted it has overstepped its legal boundaries. As the NYT reported: "The National Security Agency intercepted private e-mail messages and phone calls of Americans in recent months on a scale that went beyond the broad legal limits established by Congress last year, government officials said in recent interviews. "

NYT goes on:

Is any person out there dumb enough to believe anything that Obama says? It's a fact that he lies all of the time. A lier cannot be believe because they will tell one lie to cover another. That is exactly what Obama is doing. How long can this go on before the people say enough is enough and impeach this moron?

1251 is right on target. He and Holder are such COLLOSAL LIARS on such a STEADY BASIS how would you know if they were telling the truth? It seems that is the BIGGER challenge.

Is his mouth moving?

A more outlandish, completely rediculous question would be, "is the truth being told"? The sad truth is that the majority of US citizens don't care.

If Obama's lips are moving then he is lying

I used to think the man had a little decency, but now I know better.
You can see it in his eyes, facial expressions and body language.
The man is pathological. He is an instinctual liar.
He had the experience to be President of his weed and cocaine club the Choom gang but beyond that he's in way over his head. I believe he is lacking education. I think he bluffed, kissed butt and race carded his way through Law school, Chicago politics and the Senate right up to the Presidency.
With a little help from the Pinko Commies among us of course.

Senator Linsey Graham posted this on Facebook. His constituents are eating him up on his on FB page for this comment. They are mad.

I view Mr. Snowdens’ actions not as one of patriotism, but potentially a felony. I hope we follow him to the ends of the earth to bring him to justice.
