And yet I hear a lot of radio conservatives giving Obama a pass on the domestic spying because it is “for our safety.”

Jihad is not the same as Terrorism.

Terrorism is an ill-defined amorphous threat to the US gov't.

Jihad is the real threat. Unfortunately we can't even come close to admitting this simple fact.

Islam/Sharia/Jihad/Mo-Ham-Mad is seditious to the Constitution.

Radio conservatives? You should try reading the WSJ, every article is about how only the Libertarians and far left loons are opposed to Obama’s cyber snooping.

Then tonight, they started rejecting my posts that were actually relatively innocuous and asking me to log in again and change my password. There is something weird going on there, some articles with less than ten posts, and others with lots of posts, but all by the same people.

This is bizarre. Yeah, Mexicans aren’t most of the illegals and Mosques aren’t where the terrorists hang out and regenerate. So much better to attack the Tea Party.

This is particularly disturbing in light of recent independent surveys of American mosques, which reveal some 80% of them preach violent jihad or distribute violent literature to worshippers.

What about the 1rst and 4th Amendment? /s

Yup. In the name of political correctness, islamists know they can plot inside mosques without fear of being under observation while the rest of the country is treated and regarded as being terrorist suspects.

The price we have paid for obama was already too high even before he assumed office. The price the next generation will pay for his having been there makes ours look paltry by comparison.

Obama set out from the get-go to destroy America, and that is precisely what he’s doing.

Let no one say he’s ‘not a successful’ president.

Karl Rove was on Greta tonight talking about what a traitor Snowden is and how wonderful obama is for protecting us by spying on us. I got so disgusted I turned it off. Rove might as well go over to MSNBC.

Homeland Insecurity: After Boston, The Struggle Between Liberty and Security

Time

...
But the new guidelines also featured added restrictions on an especially sensitive area of FBI counterterrorism work: mosques. Under the new rules, agents could no longer enter a religious organization without special new approval—in some cases directly from FBI headquarters. Moreover, according to still-classified sections of the new rules made available to Time, any plan to go undercover in a place of worship—a tactic employed by the bureau after Sept. 11, 2001, that drew protests from Muslim Americans and at least one lawsuit from a California mosque—would now need special approval from a newly established oversight body at Department of Justice headquarters called the Sensitive Operations Review Committee, or SORC.

Both Fox and NBC are members of the Council on Foreign Relations.

They have a different "branding" to appeal to both sides of the "political spectrum", but they're ultimately selling the same product: globalism.

  Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents... before mosques were excluded from the otherwise wide domestic spy net the administration has cast, the FBI launched dozens of successful sting operations against homegrown jihadists — inside mosques — and disrupted dozens of plots against the homeland

  Jihadists aren't the real enemy of the current administration. Their real enemy consists of people who support the US Constitution, free markets, private property rights, etc. Their real enemy consists of people who want to live in freedom.

“special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee.”

I will bet anybody on this site any amount of money you are willing to part with that there is at least one mohammedan on this panel with ties to terrorism in his past or present.

Obama can use the NSA to find out what we are all about.

We can use the way the NSA targets to find out what Obama is all about.

They just have a suspicion and they could do what was called assessments of that situation. In 2011, President Obama revised those guidelines one more time. He actually expanded them in a lot of ways, now these assessments could include database searches of people using public records and things like that.

But they actually pulled back a little on how the assessments could deal with religious communities and mosques and they set up this new committee to oversee that. (Sensitive Operations Review Committee, or SORC) It was part of a White House effort, a broader White House effort, to really build closer ties and cooperation with the Islamic community in the United States around these issues.

But it’s all good because speaker Boehner just assured us that the “President outlined last week that these are important national security programs to help keep Americans safe and give us tools to help fight the terrorist threat we face” so obviously ignoring mosques is reasonable.

This is the Regime who has US Attorneys seeking to limit speech critical of Islam. Its not shocking this Regime won’t spy on Mosques. If they had the Boston Bombers may have been stopped and also the Ft Hood shooting.
