But who to trust. Could be the company you hire to check it out is on the take from you know who. Could be the tech guy who fixes your company’s comupters is on the take. Could be the various updates from Microsoft or Java or whatever is a bit more than a legit update.

If he’s lost the_______________ ( insert name of any Liberal MSM It’s just a matter of time before he loses them all

Sorry, but you are dreaming.
The Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms worked too hard to get their African communist punk elected and reelected to turn on him now.
It's not going to happen.

They will, in fact, circle the wagons, spin, lie, and make excuses for their scumbag like no tomorrow. Oh sure, they'll feign outrage and confusion and disappointment and all the rest if they think they must. But in the end, they would endorse him for a third term if that was possible. You can take that to the bank.

bgill ~:” But who to trust... “

Exactly !
Didn’t I just read here, a few days ago, that the FBI wanted access to software ‘back doors’ ?
Last I knew , that was criminal charge : ‘Criminal Tresspass’ , Burglary 3rd ( Felony).
I guess we will have Holder investigate Holder’s own “Just-US” dept.
Ever notice that these ongoing ‘investigations’ are just stalling techniques ??
No ending / No conclusion !!
It is a legalized ‘Daisey-Chain’ , .. or from my day , a “Circle-Jerk” .

Rosen was a ruse , a false flag !
Holder lied to the judge , even AFTER he went ‘judge shopping’.
It was just another “Just-Us” Dept. ‘Daisey-Chain’ investigation to take the heat off Zippy’s IRS debacle .

Bastard 0bama. He was so worried about what Sharyl was finding out about Benghazi, that he had the NSA (Nazis Spying on Americans) access her computer. Hmmmmm.. This is a bit chilling.

It might be possible for a REALLY good computer forensics person to identify WHERE the intrusions came from.

I have no doubt 0bama is using the NSA to spy on his political opponents and get their personal information to BLACKMAIL THEM.

Bump that. They are the one institution that are near enough to us that we might actually have some effect on.

It’s obvious that Obama’s thugs did this. Yet again, if the Bush administration had done this, the Left would be screaming like Banshees about a constitutional crisis. If they don’t start screaming so now, it’s time to protest at their TV station affiliates all over the U.S. to show them that the angry mob is gathering.

The press has already ended the love affair with Obama over this. Add the pissed off spooks in the CIA, and this will be one helluva summer for scandals.

As I said before, we may be getting the answer to why DHS has stockpiled ammo.

In the CBS News version of this article on their site, the last paragraph reads:

"To be clear, the federal government has not been accused in the intrusion of Attkisson's computer; CBS News is continuing to work to identify the responsible party."

Yeah. Wouldn't want to go out on a limb or anything...

We are just beginning to see the extent of the cyber warfare carried out by Obama and the Dems. And it was all about staying in power.

We had a strange thing here in Florida where our GOP poll watcher data (on the Board of Elections server, since the poll watchers must be approved by the supervisor) was mysteriously corrupted about 3 days before the election. Naturally, it was impossible to rebuild it, so this meant that poll watchers ended up being sent simply to their home precincts and most of the really corruption-prone precincts had no GOP monitors. Pretty crafty, no?

Rosen wasn't the ruse.. The ruse was the 'spying on AP' lie. THAT was meant to MAKE IT APPEAR as though LIBERALS were being spied on too.. I mean, if the IRS was targeting conservatives, and the DOJ targeted ONLY Fox News, that would be clear evidence that ONLY conservatives were being targeted so the administration tossed the 'spying on AP' into the mix just for the appearance of fairness.

To date, there is NO evidence a single AP reporter was spied on.. Only Rosen of Fox News but not AP. AP was the false flag.

It’s not even justice we should be after. We won’t have anything close to justice in this life. What we need is something that resembles control over our government. We need to assert as strongly as necessary that we’re in charge and we’re free. They can do whatever they want as long as it’s not in our name, using our money, and violating our constitutional rights. They’ve defecated on every check to their power and are rogues concerning their mandate. Our failure to reign them in is to our shame; like a parent who fails to discipline their kids.

The DHS stockpiling ammo is back door gun control. Denying people’s access to ammo is just as effective as banning their guns. They are afraid of the people. And WHY didn’t the media uncover these scandals BEFORE the election? They held onto this stuff until after 0bama was elected. They are all complicit and now they’re acting like they’re out to get the truth? Hmph!

I want Obama to be impeached if he has broken our laws..... And we know he has. That is what I mean by justice. The law breakers in government should be held to account. How do you reign in someone who has an administration that lies and breaks the law, an out of control government, a complicit opposition party and a corrupt media?

It sure hasn’t happened yet. They are stealing elections all over this country as well. What do you suppose we do?

If she has stuff she doesn't want them to see, she wouldn't be keeping it on her "work" computer. Even in BYOD environments, company policy will dictate that they can monitor and interrogate any computer connected to their internal network. They don't need to hide it.

DOJ - “To our knowledge, the Justice Department has never compromised Ms. Attkisson’s computers, or otherwise sought any information from or concerning any telephone, computer, or other media device she may own or use.”


Gotta love that “to our knowledge” line. I think the NSA is using it, too. They aren’t flat out denying doing it,,,but are leaving themselves an out in case it’s proven they did it. Then they can use the “low-level flunkies in Cincinnati” defense. And isn’t the CBS honcho married to one of His Majesty’s advisors? So we will probably never see this connected to the WH.

Apology accepted and appreciated.

To be honest, I thought they were imaginary as well until my IT-professor friend(who has had to help dig me out of my computer troubles many times) told me otherwise and that it most likely was breached at the Homeland Security level. And then when the critical emails started disappearing altogether and the files had double the size added to them so that they froze up my computer any time I worked with them... it was easy for me to see that the monkey business was real. They don’t like me outing Bob Bauer’s criminality and they don’t like me contacting Mike Zullo.

My extended family will probably never believe that the stuff on the news has anything to do with what I’ve been experiencing. If what I was doing had any merit the conservative media would have reported on it, they think. These breaches may seem like no big deal until it’s understood that the victims have not only had their privacy breached but have also been disbelieved and/or demonized by even their closest friends and family members. This regime is all about tearing people apart and making us unable to believe anything or anyone. It tears at the very fabric that has made us not only Americans but also family, friends, and neighbors. It seeks to destroy America at the level where she has always been the strongest.

What they are doing comes straight from the pit of Hell.

Maybe that “only once in 5 months” is because of blackmail. After all, that’s the main purpose of all the snooping, IMO.

0bama wanted to know who was giving her information on Benghazi and he used the NSA to find out. NOT for security reasons, but to save his AZZ politically! Also, to try and get her personal information (Emails, etc) for blackmailing her to shut up on Benghazi!

The Justice Department issued this statement not long after Attkisson’s claims:

To our knowledge, the Justice Department has never compromised Ms. Attkisson’s computers, or otherwise sought any information from or concerning any telephone, computer, or other media device she may own or use.

IOW, they did it.

Recently the idiot communist party member of Congress , Maxine Waters, stated in an interview that Obama was developing a data base of everyone in the USA.

There are also the facts that Romney’s donor list was given to a far left organization….and published. And then there was the statement by Hairy Reid on the floor of the Senate of Romney never paid taxes.

A congressman has been advised by a Democrat operative that Obama got and perhaps used incriminating information on Chief Justice Roberts reportedly the day before his abrupt change in his vote for Obozocare. This whole information mining scandal should make Americans blood boil with intense hatred against this evil regime.

Few of us understand what has been under construction in the Utah desert and is due to begin operations this fall. It is over 1 million square feet of various structures that will house the world’s most gigantic computer system designed solely to collect information on Americans.

Where’s Congress?
