'Dictator Palin' Could Control U.S. Spying, Warns Rep. Alan Grayson (Video)
Opposing Views ^ | August 8, 2013 | Michael Allen

Posted on 08/09/2013 9:31:45 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) recently expressed his concern about Sarah Palin someday becoming president and having control over the information gathered by the U.S government about Americans citizens.

In an interview with Shark-Tank.net, Rep. Grayson said he has introduced a bill, 'The Mind Your Own Business Act,' that would ban the U.S. Department of Defense from gathering Internet, phone and other personal information about U.S. citizens without probable cause or evidence of a criminal offense, which is what the Fourth Amendment is supposed to do.

Rep. Grayson explained how 'The Mind Your Own Business Act' was modeled "very closely after a bill introduced by a Republican, Rand Paul." He has also set up a website where the public can sign a petition in support of the bill.

Before the end of his interview, Rep. Grayson painted a potential scenario that worried him (video below).

“I heard Rush Limbaugh ranting almost incoherently about this just a few days ago on the radio. He is very concerned about the fact that ‘Dictator Obama’ can get this information. I’m more concerned about the possibility that Dictator Palin can get this information, but regardless of who we are concerned about, the fact is we are both concerned," said Rep. Grayson.

I know exactly what she’d do with the info. She’s a mom; therefore, she’d dispatch our private info as quickly and as efficiently as any mom would do to a Playboy or can of Copenhagen hidden between her son’s matress and box springs.

And when the libs are in firmly in power they never think twice about the ramifications of installing more levers of power for themselves then they whine when they are out of power that those levers could be used against them....

Liberals: lack of Forward thinking is ironic when their new slogan is “forward”....

No wonder their logo is an ASS, because they are dumbasses...

I’ve been expecting something like this. Now that the dems have all the info in their possession they want to close the door before republicans get full access to it as well. Comprehensive info on every citizen was the last piece they needed for their election advantage “killer apps”.

As I remember, the NSA spying really ramped up under the Obama administration. At least the Bush administration was a little more restrained.

But, Obama claimed that he would end it, during his campaign in 2008. Yet, he expanded it instead. And Grayson thinks Palin could be evil? The personification of evil is already in the Oval Office.

But he loves Obama. Grayson is what people like Himmler and Goering were made of.. He’d fall in line with an Obama dictatorship in two seconds.

It appears that Grayson's release from that mental hospital was a bit premature.

Interesting, he still signals that Governor Palin is the one that they think of when naming republican opposition. This reminds me of how Obama has always seen Palin as the big dog GOP challenger to him, including those weeks in 2008 when even the media was pleading with him to stop treating Palin as his opponent for the presidency.

talk about hypocrisy. Alan isn’t even arguing about the principle of spying. He just don’t like the other side to have that information, but its okay for Obama

Accuse your opponent of the wrongdoings of your own.

Old playbook. Used just right by the Clintons, but way overplayed by the current regime.

Well, gee if Dictator Palin finally makes some dems see some common sense on how domestic spying can be used politically against any group of people and possibly them in the future with a change of power in Washington, not just conservatives that they are now cheering and praising the IRS for, then go for it.

No party should have this power as we can see from our own rinos and their lack of morals.

After that let's address the wrongness of a union having any power at the IRS or anywhere in the government since unions are one political party's puppet.

Some other things they don't like about Governor Palin.

Chuck Jr.: Ten Things That Sarah Palin is Lacking

Posted on August 09 2013 - 9:13 AM - Posted by:

Governor’s Palin’s brother, Chuck Heath Jr., posted the following tongue-in-cheek list of "qualifications" that the Governor lacks on his Facebook page.  Enjoy:

For the past five years, I’ve watched, listened to, and read viscous comments directed at my sister Sarah. These attacks are usually based on things those that want to destroy her feel she is lacking. I thought I’d help the haters out by compiling my own list. I hope this helps!

Ten Things That Sarah Palin is Lacking:

#1-Pedigree: Sarah was born into a low-income family with no political connections. Everything she’s achieved has been through her own hard work.

#2-Soft hands: Sarah has continually worked to provide for herself and her family, whether it was as a commercial fisherman, a hunter, a waitress, etc., she’s never been afraid to get her hands dirty.

#3-Sleep: I watched Sarah work 15-20 hours a day, seven days a week as governor. Her stamina amazes everyone close to her.

#4-A golf handicap: Although she loves the game, you would never see Sarah spending countless hours on the links during a position of leadership.

#5-Shady friends: Sarah has no ties to known domestic terrorists, and no wealthy foreign friends that financed trips for her overseas.

#6-Hidden college transcripts: Her school records have always been open to the public.

#7-A perfect family: Despite hardships that almost every American family faces, Sarah has kept her head up and focused on the positive, and she’s always been there to help us when we’ve needed her.

#8-Friends in the media, Hollywood, and rap music: The vast majority of Hollywood stars and the mainstream media have done everything in their power to destroy her. No major network newsman has ever said that he gets a tingle up his leg when he thinks of her.

#9-A lack of respect for the Constitution: Sarah has always looked at the Constitution as a brilliant blueprint for America; a document that clearly lays out a separation of powers so that no one person or group of people have absolute power.

#10-A doubt in our Creator: Every big decision Sarah makes has been based on prayer.

I’m sure many of you could add to this list. Feel free, but try to be nice and honest.

 (h/t Josh Painter)
