Obama’s NSA announcement – Drooms media statement

waterboarding

An Administration that is happy to directly or indirectly to sanction torture as an information gathering technique is hardly likely to worry much about the need for warrants for covert surveillance on an industrial scale. Every country collects information on its own citizens and on other nations and their political leaders. The critical issue is to ensure that the government of a democratic country is observing its own laws in the process of intelligence gathering. A German politician can’t really object to another country breaking into her phones and computer systems when she is engaged in the same activities, or benefitting from countries that do, particularly as the objective of the EUSSR under German leadership has a prime objective of dominating the world and replacing the US as THE Super Power.

In light of the Obama’s announcement on NSA reforms, European virtual data rooms Drooms has issued the following media statement.

Fire Speaker Boehner!

The calendar turned to 2014, but doesn’t it seem like Washington is still stuck in the same place as it was last year? Washington is still spending trillions of dollars we can’t afford, micromanaging our health care decisions, and passing 1,500 page, trillion-dollar spending bills without bothering to read them. While Democrats are the driving force behind running up our national debt, growing the size of the federal government and wasting your money, all too often Republicans, led by Speaker John Boehner, are happy to go along for the ride. We believe it is time to fire Speaker Boehner! Under his leadership, the House has repeatedly caved to the demands of President Obama and his liberal allies like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, despite promising to fight for your money, your opportunity to get a good job, and your rights. You name it: funding for ObamaCare, the debt ceiling, more spending, tax increases, on issue after issue they have caved – and they may do the same this year on immigration.
