The furore over the scale of American mass surveillance revealed by Edward Snowden shifted to an incendiary new level on Wednesday evening when Angela Merkel of Germany called Barack Obama to demand explanations over reports that the US National Security Agency was monitoring her mobile phone. Merkel was said by informed sources in Germany to be “livid” over the reports and convinced, on the basis of a German intelligence investigation, that the reports were utterly substantiated. http://youtu.be/Lqi3YIofp2A The German news weekly, Der Spiegel, reported an investigation by German intelligence, prompted by research from the magazine, that produced plausible information that Merkel’s mobile was targeted by the US eavesdropping agency. The German chancellor found the evidence substantial enough to call the White House and demand clarification.
The outrage in Berlin came days after President François Hollande of France also called the White House to confront Obama with reports that the NSA was targeting the private phone calls and text messages of millions of French people. While European leaders have generally been keen to play down the impact of the whistleblowing disclosures in recent months, events in the EU’s two biggest countries this week threatened an upward spiral of lack of trust in transatlantic relations. Merkel’s spokesman, Steffen Seibert, made plain that Merkel upbraided Obama unusually sharply and also voiced exasperation at the slowness of the Americans to respond to detailed questions on the NSA scandal since the Snowden revelations first appeared in the Guardian in June. Merkel told Obama that “she unmistakably disapproves of and views as completely unacceptable such practices, if the indications are authenticated,” Seifert said. “This would be a serious breach of confidence. Such practices have to be halted immediately.”
The sharpness of the German complaint direct to an American president strongly suggested that Berlin had no doubt about the grounds for protest. Seibert voiced irritation that the Germans had waited for months for proper answers from Washington to Berlin on the NSA operations. Merkel told Obama she expected the Americans “to supply information over the possible scale of such eavesdropping practices against Germany and reply to questions that the federal government asked months ago”, Seibert said. The White House responded that Merkel’s mobile is not being tapped. “The president assured the chancellor that the United States is not monitoring and will not monitor the communications of the chancellor,” said a statement from Jay Carney, the White House spokesman. But Berlin promptly signalled that the rebuttal referred to the present and the future and did not deny that Merkel’s communications had been monitored in the past.
Asked by the Guardian if the US had monitored the German chancellor’s phone in the past, a top White House official declined to deny that it had.
Caitlin Hayden, the White House’s National Security Council spokeswoman, said: “The United States is not monitoring and will not monitor the communications of Chancellor Merkel. Beyond that, I’m not in a position to comment publicly on every specific alleged intelligence activity.” Obama and Merkel, the White House said, “agreed to intensify further the co-operation between our intelligence services with the goal of protecting the security of both countries and of our partners, as well as protecting the privacy of our citizens.”
The explosive new row came on the eve of an EU summit in Brussels opening on Thursday afternoon. Following reports by Le Monde this week about the huge scale of US surveillance of France, Hollande insisted that the issue be raised at a summit which, by coincidence, is largely devoted to the “digital” economy in Europe. Hollande also phoned Obama to protest and insist on a full explanation, but received only the stock US response that the Americans were examining their intelligence practices and seeking to balance security and privacy imperatives, according to the Elysee Palace.
The French demand for a summit debate had gained little traction in Europe. On Wednesday morning, briefing privately on the business of the summit, senior German officials made minimal mention of the surveillance scandal. But by Wednesday evening that had shifted radically. The Germans publicly insisted that the activities of the US intelligence services in Europe be put on a new legal basis. “The [German] federal government, as a close ally and partner of the USA, expects in the future a clear contractual basis for the activity of the services and their cooperation,” Merkel told Obama.
In 2009, it was reported that Merkel had fitted her phone with an encryption chip to stop it being bugged. As many as 5,250 other ministers, advisers and important civil servants were supplied with similar state-of-the-art encryption technology. Merkel is known to be a keen mobile user and has been nicknamed “die Handy-Kanzlerin” (“Handy” being the German word for mobile phone). When asked how he had communicated with Merkel during an EU summit in Brussels in 2008, then French president Nicolas Sarkozy said: “We call each other’s mobiles and write text messages.” Katrin Goring-Eckhart, parliamentary leader of the Greens, said: “If these allegations turn out to be true, we are dealing with an incredible scandal and an unprecedented breach of trust between the two countries, for which there can be no justification.”
On social media, a number of Germans mocked Merkel’s change of tone over the NSA affair, given her previous reluctance to talk about the controversy. Jens König, a reporter for the news weekly Stern, tweeted that it was “the first time that Merkel is showing some proper passion during the NSA affair”. The European Commission has thrown its weight behind new European Parliament proposals for rules governing the transfer of data from Europe to America and demanded that the forthcoming summit finalise the new regime by next spring.
While Senator Ted Cruz (TX) went home to a hero’s welcome, Senator Mike Lee (UT) found himself in an unpopular quagmire as a result of our “Dear Leader” and “Liar in Chief” Barack Hussein Obama’s unwarranted order to barricade and close National Parks that resulted in nine UT counties declaring an economic state of emergency.
This just goes to prove that the price of freedom is not free and that a few of our “Washington Patriots” will have to pay a price. One of the things that Progressives understand is is that in today’s society, sacrifice for the greater good is a virtue that has been on the wane which allows them to exploit political circumstances without much fear of repercussions.
Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee placed their careers and fortunes on the line because they understood that their sacrifice was necessary to safeguard the future of America, their families and generations to come.
Even now, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are excoriated by the leadership in their own party as much as from the Obamanite pinheads. Meanwhile, because of the sunlight brought to bear by these two patriots, even the Democrats are beginning to understand the physical and economic devastation that lurks in the future from Obamacare.
The following Roll Call vote took place in spite of the fact that House members were not provided copies to peruse before the vote, even if they requested it. 87 Republican Traitors voted Yea! The means by which this legislation was moved and passed gives new meaning to the word “Treachery”. The House voted to give Republican Mitch McConnell his $2 Billion Earmark and voted a stipend of $174K of our treasure was to Millionairess Senator Frank Lautenberg of NJ’s widow in this purported “Clean CR”. Now that it has passed we will have a chance in the weeks aheadto review the entire bill and we will surely find other treacheries like a trick-provision that was added that will require a 2/3 vote to stop the next Debt Limit increase.This morning the Wall Street Journal in an article by Laura Meckler, Business Voices Frustration With GOP, writes that “In interviews with representatives of companies large and small executives predicted a change in how business would approach politics. They didn’t foresee a new alignment with Democrats but forecast backing challengers to tea-party conservatives in GOP primaries…”
This is just the beginning of a planned blitz creed against Tea Party Conservatives by the Establishment and their Progressive allies. We are now joined in a battle, not only a fight for Conservative values, but for the Survival of our Constitutional Democracy.
As Jeff Kuhner of WRKO in Boston recently stated, America has now become a functional “Dictatorship” under the tutelage of our “Dear Leader” Barrack Hussein Obama.
Lastly, the Wall Street journal today had another front page headline, More Illegal Immigrants As for Asylum, thereby joining next skirmish in our battle to save our American Way of Life.

Our vindictive “Dear Leader” has once again shown his complete and utter disdain for America, Her hero Veterans and for those who are sworn to protect us, the National Park Service and Washington police. Let there be no mistake, this arrogant bully has given the nod for this outrageous behavior whose repercussions will haunt our country and Washington law enforcement for years to come. His vindictiveness in ordering the tying and strapping of barricades together and sending armed Park and Washington police to guard the barriers is an assault against ALL Americans and our 1st Amendment Right “…peaceably to assemble.”. Americans whose fathers, sons, daughters and loved ones gave their all to protect, and preserve their Country and whose honor and sacrifices are symbolized and preserved for generations to come in our National War Memorials and Monuments!
The corporate media is avoiding the significance of the latest developments in the “Million Vet March” in Washington, DC.
Vets have torn down “barrycades,” riot police have been dispatched, and snipers deployed, according to reports, as the number of protesters swell outside the White House.
Sarah Palin and Senator Ted Cruz, a Texas Republican, arrived to speak with the demonstrators. Police also responded.
“US Park Police have arrived in front of WH. Some in riot gear! Tea party/veteran protesters start booing,” wrote CNN’s Jim Acosta on Twitter.
The latest developments follow the closure of the World War II Monument following the supposed government shut down.
“Veterans this week were unwillingly pitted as pawns in this crisis. We feel that this should never be the case,” the Million Vet March On Memorials website states. “This is why we will go to Congress after the budget crisis and ask for a bill to be introduced that would prevent any member of the government from closing our memorials down to any American, except for maintenance purposes. In the meantime, we will have our March in Washington DC on October 13th! Our veterans deserve that!”

Obama vows to ‘vigorously pursue’ gun control, prepares to release proposals
Published January 15, 2013 FoxNews.com
President Obama says he plans to make public later this week the details of his plan to tighten firearms laws based on the findings of a White House task force he commissioned in the aftermath of the fatal Connecticut school shooting.
The task force was led by Vice President Joe Biden and held its final White House meeting Monday, talking with members of the House Democratic Gun Violence Prevention Task Force.
A source told Fox News that Biden explained at the meeting that he and his staff have researched various plans of action to reduce and prevent gun violence and have identified 19 different options the president could choose to implement through executive order.
Obama said Monday he planned to review the findings and will “vigorously pursue” the recommendations in the next few days. It’s unclear how many of the 19 options the president would eventually take up.
The president vowed after the Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., that he would look for ways to curb gun violence, including possible legislation to ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips like those used in the attack, which killed 20 first-graders and six adults at the school.
Among the other potential proposals is tightening background checks on prospective gun buyers. The president said Monday some of his goals could be accomplished through legislation, while others could be done through executive action.
The White House meeting Monday included Attorney General Eric Holder, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who have participated in several other talks.
“Our task force looks forward to working with … the Obama administration and all stakeholders to enact a comprehensive set of proposals that both respects the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens without a history of dangerous mental illness and helps keep our schools, streets and communities safe from gun violence,” said California Rep. Mike Thompson, chairman of the eight-member House task force.
Biden already has talked with individuals and groups supporting tougher guns laws, including the Brady Campaign, and gun rights groups, including the National Rifle Association, which opposes any legislation to again ban assault weapons and high-capacity clips. Biden also has spoken with governors and executives with the video-gaming industry.
Obama has suggested he will submit legislation after his Jan. 21 inauguration and Congress’ return to Washington.
