The Audacity of Irony: Obama and the NSA

A class action lawsuit was filed against the U.S. Government, including Obama. Click on this link for the class action lawsuit, in its entirety.

Plaintiff, Larry Klayman, a former U.S. Department of Justice prosecutor, and Plaintiffs Charles and Mary Ann Strange (collectively “Plaintiffs”) bring this action on their own behalf and on behalf of a class of persons defined below. Plaintiffs hereby sue Barack Hussein Obama, Eric Holder, Keith B. Alexander, Lowell McAdam, Roger Vinson, Verizon Communications, the U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”), and the National Security Agency (“NSA”), (collectively “Defendants”), in their personal and official capacities, for violating Plaintiffs’ constitutional rights, Plaintiffs’ reasonable expectation of privacy, free speech and association, right to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures, and due process rights, as well as certain common law claims, for directly and proximately causing Plaintiffs mental and physical pain and suffering.

I voted for Obama two times. He has now lost my trust. Given the information I have now, if I were in Congress and I’d have to vote to impeach the president today, I WOULD. But this can’t happen, because the wiretapping is probably not even illegal – which has me deeply concerned.

The scope, size, audacity and illegality of what went on here is beyond Orwellian. Nixon’s crimes appear like school-boy pranks in comparison.

Whether Obama knows what he is doing, whether he knew what the NSA was doing on behalf of “the American people,” it does not matter. Obama is the president and the buck stops there. Our government appears to have turned rogue, and it must be stopped.

To top this off, the government is actually pursuing criminal actions against the whistle blowers. This is the audacity of irony.

Unfortunately, this wiretapping is probably not illegal, and nothing will change.

  1. Except for the media and a few Politicians, very few people seem to be alarmed about this. It is puzzling to me but I think it is because they can not technically imagine what the government could potentially do with all of these data. You mentioned Richard Nixon in your piece. Just think of what kind of damage he could have done when putting together his enemys list with access to such data. I don’t think Obama or either of the Bushes would use the data in such a cavalier and immoral manner but we have had a Richard Nixon before. Which means we will probably have another one and then what?

    1. I agree on that. But when something goes rogue, it needs to be stopped right away. Nazi Germany started out with minor violations of the constitution in early February 1933, and a few months later there was a fully entrenched dictator. If the constitution is just a piece of paper that can be ignored by the current administration, it might as well not exist.

  3. Of course, the real problem is that due to the current law, this probably isn’t even illegal, so nobody gets punished. That’s the most scary thing: the fact that the administration didn’t even have to break any laws to do this. This indicates to me that we are on the way to becoming a police state.

  4. I commend sen obama’s ritsraent when it seemed as if Sen McCain was trying bully him with various statements and aalso trying to qualify himself by stating sen obama just did not understand . Well in Sen Obama’s closing statement or even earlier I was just wished that he would have said the one thing that I do understand is this country cannot go through another 8 years of what we’ve been through. And I believe that a vast majority of America wouldagree with you because it seems as if some are now starting to feel the pinch of recession, the same pinch most Americans have been feeling for the past 2 to 6 years. Something is wrong when you can bail out institutions,banking investment firms, we can even finance a war. But we can’t give ours kids a decent education, we can’t find a way for the elderly to chose between medicine and food and I know why and no one is saying it, there’s no profit in peace, no profit in financing healthcare for young or old no profit. I know that things cost money but you’ll find that you’ll become the biggest arms dealer in the world (President’s real job). Please don’t forget WHO YOU ARE becausethe shoes you about to step into come with many acessories like Masks yes many masks you’ll have to wear. Oops did not mean to sound like Sen McCain but sometimes we as little people really don’t have any say because who’s listening. Those who are in power say that they understand what we are going through. You know in hindsight I’m glad that you don’t understand.
