From Young Cons: Secret recordings forced Richard Nixon to resign from office in disgrace, but that was a long time ago.
Nowadays, a president can do virtually no wrong as long as he has a ‘D’ right after his name.
Barack Obama is allowed to get away with murder because the mainstream media is on his side, so don’t expect to see much come about from this news below anytime soon…
A report in The Wall Street Journal Tuesday revealed that President Barack Obama’s National Security Agency intercepted calls between House Republicans and members of Jewish and Israeli lobbying groups, reporting on Iran deal strategy to the president.
The NSA claimed that its recordings were obtained during the normal course of their espionage against the state of Israel. However, the report raised troubling questions about what the president and his administration did with the information they received.
The Nixonian recordings revealed that Republicans and Jewish groups were coordinating on messaging to oppose the Iran nuclear deal, which both opposed.
The report also revealed an even wider scope of NSA spying, including espionage against Israel that was initiated by the Jewish state’s opposition to the proposed Iran deal.
The Obama administration reportedly had the office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wired, and updates about Netanyahu’s conversations were regularly sent to the White House for analysis.
However, we now have evidence that the president engaged in an illegal campaign of espionage and recording of his enemies in order to help shepherd a deal that completely bypassed Congress and that the American people opposed.
Bugging the phones of our greatest ally in the Middle East?
Had a Republican president done this, it would be a worldwide scandal, and that’s the problem.
I’m sure plenty of countries spy on each other with regularity, but this move by the “most transparent administration in history” shows that America twice elected the wrong man for president.
