The Obama Regime is reeling from the scandals. For the first time since 2011, his approval ratings are underwater. Most of this decline is attributed to Glenn Greenwald’s revelations of the NSA spying program known as PRISM. This has caused some Liberals and Younger voters to finally turn on Obama. In a caveat, just because people are turning on Obama does not mean they are flocking to the Republican Party either. Regardless, the aurora of Obama as some hip, cool and all caring person is in shatters.
Under siege, Obama like all totalitarians is getting paranoid about the people around him. He is now doing everything possible to stop leaks to the media. The Regime is encouraging its employees to report any unusual behavior of their coworkers. This is a way to premptively silence any whistleblower.
WASHINGTON — Even before a former U.S. intelligence contractor exposed the secret collection of Americans’ phone records, the Obama administration was pressing a government-wide crackdown on security threats that requires federal employees to keep closer tabs on their co-workers and exhorts managers to punish those who fail to report their suspicions.
President Barack Obama’s unprecedented initiative, known as the Insider Threat Program, is sweeping in its reach. It has received scant public attention even though it extends beyond the U.S. national security bureaucracies to most federal departments and agencies nationwide, including the Peace Corps, the Social Security Administration and the Education and Agriculture departments. It emphasizes leaks of classified material, but catchall definitions of “insider threat” give agencies latitude to pursue and penalize a range of other conduct.
“Hammer this fact home . . . leaking is tantamount to aiding the enemies of the United States,” says a June 1, 2012, Defense Department strategy for the program that was obtained by McClatchy.
It is ironic that Obama who was a god-king figure to Progressives is being politically destroyed by a segmkent of the Left led by Glenn Greenwald. Some like Chris Matthews and Charles Johnson are doing everything possible to prop up Obama. But others realized they have been had and are done with Obama worship. After nearly 9 years, Obama is finally being viewed as just another politician and not some transformative deity like figure.
On a semi related note, Obama Loyalist Charles Johnson had a article in the Daily Beast where he puts up a pathetic response to Glenn Greenwald. Read the comments section below the article for your entertainment!
