Watch the Good Guys and Leave the Terrorists Alone
AmericanThinker.com ^ | 6/16/2013 | Jeannie DeAngelis

Posted on 06/16/2013 5:57:09 AM PDT by RoosterRedux

Barack Obama alleges that snooping is in the nation's best interest because it is a powerful tool needed to keep Americans safe from dangerous terrorists. Yet, taking political correctness to a whole new level of lunacy, mosques, where terrorist types like to mingle with likeminded people, are currently off-limits to spying, snooping, and undercover stakeouts.

That's right -- cell phones are being tapped, keystrokes on computers are being logged and email intercepted and read; but mosques, which are home base for homegrown terrorists, are strictly off-limits to counterterrorism efforts.

Apparently this is how it works: Let's say law enforcement is looking for a serial murderer who's known to take a cooking class or two before butchering his victims. So to prevent non-murdering chefs from being offended, the thing to do would be to avoid looking in culinary schools for the killer. Right?

Then, while the Killer Chef hides in a cookery sharpening his meat cleavers, the FBI should spend most of its time surveilling florists, shoe stores, and yoga classes. To avoid insulting Jeffrey Dahmer types, the protocol must be to never ever search for suspicious-looking characters in places where lust killers with cannibalistic tendencies are likely to hang out.

I will point this out. If regular cops had access...they’d see a robbery at a 7-11 at 2:11AM. They’d reference the 16 cellphones active within 500 feet of the 7-11 at the time, and go to each house with a photo from the store cam. It’d take twenty-four hours to make the bust because the idiot robber carried his cellphone in his pocket. I could bust ten thousand robbers a week using this method.

A kidnapping? I’d get the last location of the person missing via their cellphone records, and then ask for all cellphones within that point. A dozen suspects...with just four cops, and I’d have the kidnapping solved in less than forty-eight hours.

Obama’s message to America is clear and simple. Islamic Jihadis are not his enemy...he hates Americans, particularly conservatives, Christians, and Jews.

Have you noticed that most Americans seem to not care about this? Most Americans shame America.

Most Americans I know care very much about this but just don't know what they can do.

And Congress just seems to look the other way.

It all depends on how you define what a terrorist is.

The problem is that Obamaites have their heads stuck so far up Obama’s rectum that they don’t want to see what is happening.

Muslims in the White House. Hillary eating at a Muslim Y. Egypt Libya, Nigeria, Syria, all going to Al Qaeda. We are supplying arms to Cartels in Mexico and Muslim Brotherhood in Syria. We are importing Hispanics by the Thousands and now Obama wants to import Syrians. Obama has stated he will help Muslims while he fills out military with queers and women. A Muslim murdered fellow soldiers 3 years ago an hasn’t gone to trial yet.

Obama needs a vacation so we spend 60 to 100 million dollars to send him and hundreds of Secret Service Agents to Africa on a trip that will serve no useful purpose.

How can people ignore this????
The same way Democrats in Congress ignore it.
They just keep breathing the odoriferous fumes emanating from the Royals buttocks of our Kenyan Monarch.

What do you think this police department would do with that information?

A very good point and it’s a lot more legitimate and legal usage of such data. Providing a search Warrant, etc. was obtained properly and not through some quasi-legal ‘invisible court’.

To Obama's administration, a terrorist is any threat to Obama's administration.

Find it strange when the excuse for “amnesty” is that while the government knows whats going on in 300 million citizens lives. But because the illegals are not citizens and live “in the shadows” the US doesn’t know who they are or where they’re comming from so we must make them citizens..

Bad guys aren’t stupid. They’re going to stop using cell phones and the internet when doing bad stuff.

This is why the NSA revelations have the statists all in a tizzy. Their “we’re collecting everything” plan only works if people don’t know about it.

Which is why Clapper and Obama can look the American people right in the eye and lie about it. Knowing everything about US is everything to THEM.

Bad guys are this stupid. Look around, no one giving up their cellphone since they learned that the Feds are collecting this data.

When I climb on the Metro bus each morning....eighty percent of the riders are gazing at their cellphones. Go out for lunch....same number of folks checking email and Facebook. Go to a airport....same number. We are addicted. And I don’t see any dimwit robber suddenly getting smart. The vast majority of them are doped up on something and are on automatic most evenings as they cruise for a hit.

I'm down in the deep South and was speaking to an EMT the other day who has occasional duty at a firehouse. He said the firemen watch Fox all day and night while on standby and are absolute rapid about Obama and what he is doing to the country.

He said all they do is workout angry and foam about Obama.

Political correctness is a strange thing. We raised our children to be tolerant and respectful of others and now it has back fired. The other day my husband and I raised our eyebrows and rolled our eyes (at each other) when a muslim family walked past. Husband first wife walking behind wearing typical muslim garb.

Our 39 year old daughter severely berated us for the looks we gave each other. How can I convince her that if/when the muslims are in the majority (here) that she and I will wear a burka or have our heads chopped off for disobeying?

Teach her about how muslims treat minorities. Tell her about every case of muslims kidnapping little Christian/jewish/hindu/sikh girls that you see on Jihadwatch etc. Eventually she might wake up to what islam really is.

You can’t teach her that islam is evil, but with enough examples of its evil she may realize it herself.

She is totally PC on everything, blacks, Jews, Orientals, gays etc. but it is the muslim angle that disturbs me.

Thanks for the suggestion.

This cartoon can be done again, but with the Tsarnev brothers instead of Maj Hasan.

How many officers like Hasan has President Hussein advanced in the military and FBI?

The title says it all.

Reject the talk of privacy and safety trade-offs. We are losing our Freedom AND our safety.

This is what Dick Cheney doesn't understand - the top of the organization might be communist now... and if the NSA has gone in that direction - or large parts of it... we've got a problem ... a real bad one.
