Concur. NSA doesn't have delusions of grandeur, but Holder's DoJ, Napolitano’s DHS, and Mueller's FBI do. That is bad for America.

There you go again, umgud, questioning the wisdom of our government. I had to report you to “Fishy” (flag@whitehouse.gov) and “AttackWatch” just in case the FBI somehow overlooked your anti-administration remark.

There has to be a way to verbally flip-the-bird to the FBI when we call in to these shows.

"Oh, and goodnight Mrs. Hoover, wherever you are."

From an old George Carlin routine:

“I had a friend who knew he was being wiretapped, so he always answered the phone ‘Hi, F**k Hoover...yes, go ahead...’.”

The only way this could conceivably be “potential evidence” is if the FBI was pretty sure it had the ability to track down the identity of “Mike from Pittsburg.”

If they know when he called in, they can get phone company records that would lead them back to Mike's phone.

Like the scene in Goodfellas, where Robert DeNiro goes and wakes up the guys in the car that have been following him, “C’mon, F-—os, let’s go for a ride.”

How about if everyone who calls in any show is “Mike from Pittsburgh”?

I prefer "Barack from Washington".

Scaring people so they won’t call. They want to shut us up. Now, are you afraid you’ll misspeak?

Maybe you won’t feel like you can express yourself unless of course you’re a Bill Ayers type.

While most Presidents of the last few decades have become tyrants, this one takes the cake. I try to be intellectually honest after the last President did all kinds of things I disagreed with, but Obama and his minions are beyond the pale. Every week there is a new outrage.

To the best of my acknowledgment, Nixon had a 'list of enemies' and spied on them. OMG! a list of enemies!

They managed to take him out because of this. Why that was the most terrible thing in the world. I also think that Nixon had a system put in that recorded every word said for transparency.

How does this compare with what's going on in the WH today?

Hey lets make sure we make a fair comparison between Nixon and 0bama.

Nixon turned over the tapes of his correspondence and conversations regarding Watergate - 0bama has formally defied calls (stating he will not comply) for his BlackBerry email that implicates him with the Solyndra fleecing of $500 Million.

At least Nixon had some basic respect for the Rule of Law, this POS 0bama is taking us down a completely different path.

I just wanted to set the record strait about comparing the two...

There is always the option to use Tor to connect. If one were to do that and threaten the president for instance, there is no way the FBI, JimRob or anyone else would know the identity of the poster.

Of course the flipside to that is most probably a ban/suspension.

How about if everyone who calls in any show is “Mike from Pittsburgh”?

Actually, it would be neat if there was a "Mike from Pittsburgh" Day in honor of the Feds eavesdropping. Everyone who calls in to anything should (male or female) claim to be "Mike from Pittsburgh".

As if the feebies didn't have some guns to run or something. Sheesh.

Dalton Trumbo, who used the pseudonym Robert Rich when he won an Academy Award while blacklisted.

Everybody should call in as Dalton from Montrose, Colorado.

So when did the FBI move away from being like Jimmy Stewart from The FBI Story, or Efram Zimbalist, Jr. from The F.B.I., and start becomming the new gestapo?

If we want to survive as a nation as a republic we must flush the progressives from both parties, from all government offices, from the media, from positions of instruction, both public schools and universities. The progressive political philosophy must be rendered ineffectual, laughable, an object of ridicule. The progressive must be excoriated and driven out of any position of authority. Any adherent of such an absurd idea should never be paid more than minimum wage.

They want too identify those of us who would cry havoc, thinking that when ready to take action ,they can round up those who would say “NO” and smother the reaction too their usurpation of our civil rights.

Shooting as few as fifteen too twenty thousand would end the progressive agenda in this nation for at least two hundred years.

"We are witnessing the return of the Gestapo - because that madman Weather Underground sympathizer Eric Holder hates white people. While the FBI is under control of Holder, its sister agency the DHS is under control of a lesbian that hates America as much as Eric Holder and Hussein Obama. We are in for some very nasty sh!t if this halfrican is reelected. "

Sort of makes 1998 (or so) look like a "golden era" for freedom & liberty...

Of course, at that time many here thought it couldn't get much worse than klintoon, hitlary, alnotbright, Janet, and albore.

Unfortunately that was the last period of time in which heroic action might have saved the few existing remnants of the former Republic and one-or-two of the freedoms that we still had.

I would strongly recommend reading (or re-reading) this excellent post by Noumenon as he continued to build on central premises that he has posted since those early FR years:
Killers Without Conscience

Needless to say...."Something wicked" no longer "comes..It has arrived to stay!
