Out: NSA telephone spying. In: NSA internet spying!

Big Brother is everywhere. And as it turns out, a step ahead of those clowns in Congress.

The Obama administration has expanded its warrantless surveillance of Americans’ overseas Internet browsing in an effort to find hackers, The New York Times reported Thursday.

The revelations come from classified National Security Agency documents included in the cache leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

The report says the Department of Justice (DOJ) in 2012 wrote two secret memos that granted the NSA authority to snoop on Internet cables abroad. The intent was to find information on domestic cyberattacks that originated overseas.

But it’s OK, they’re only spying on foreigners. Except when they weren’t.

According to the Times, the documents show the NSA overstepped its mandate, collecting data on hackers not clearly affiliated with foreign authorities.

Remember when George W. Bush looked at some mutt’s library card and the lefties went bonkers?

Yeah, me neither.

Obamanomics: Price of ground beef hit another record high in February

No, you’re not imagining it. You can’t afford to eat beef.

The average price of a pound of ground beef climbed to another record high in February, hitting $4.238 per pound, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

It first broke the $4 barrier back in August 2014, and it’s been climbing ever since.

Because cows cause Global Warming. And the price of beef must necessarily skyrocket. Thanks Obama!

Reports that sales of Hamburger Helper are also up could not be confirmed at press time. But it’s a pretty safe bet.

Soylent Pinko: Obama’s food police want you to go vegan

To “save the planet,” of course.

The federal committee responsible for nutrition guidelines is calling for the adoption of “plant-based” diets, taxes on dessert, trained obesity “interventionists” at worksites, and electronic monitoring of how long Americans sit in front of the television.

The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) released its far-reaching 571-page report of recommendations to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Thursday, which detailed its plans to “transform the food system.”

DGAC said its recommendations to eat less meat are intended to “maximize environmental sustainability” out of concerns for climate change.

Every time you eat a steak, Mother Gaia cries.

Oh, BTW, they’re going to tax your dessert too.

DGAC called for diet and weight management interventions by “trained interventionists” in healthcare settings, community locations, and worksites.

“Government at local, state, and national levels, the health care system, schools, worksites, community organizations, businesses, and the food industry all have critical roles in developing creative and effective solutions,” they said.

DGAC also called for policy interventions to “reduce unhealthy options,” limit access to high calorie foods in public buildings, “limit the exposure” of advertisements for junk food, a soda tax, and taxing high sugar and salt items and dessert.

Michelle Obama’s Food Police are coming for you. Put down that eclair, step away from the table, and nobody gets hurt.

Wanna bet these “guidelines” get written into Obamacare regulations?

Hey, if they can tax you for not buying health insurance they can certainly tax you for buying Oreos. And trust me, they will.

No wonder Obama’s credit card was declined

He’s got a stack of unpaid bills sitting on his desk that he “forgot” about.

“One of the nice things about being home is actually that it’s a little bit like a time capsule. Because Michelle and I and the kids, we left so quickly that there’s still junk on my desk, including some unpaid bills (laughter) — I think eventually they got paid — but they’re sort of stacked up. And messages, newspapers and all kinds of stuff.”

And then the White House decide to “forget” that he mentioned them.

But that transcript is different than the official White House version, which deletes the “unpaid bills” part:

“there’s still junk on my desk, including some — newspapers and all kinds of stuff.​”

The discrepancy was noticed by the White House pool reporters, and the correct transcript disseminated by them.

Here’s a pro-tip Champ. If you don’t pay your bills, your credit card gets declined.

“I was trying to explain to the waitress `No, I really think that I’ve been paying my bills.”‘

Which, of course, turns out to be a lie.

Everything Obama says is a lie. Including “and” and “the.”

NJ town reverses course, won’t disgrace JFK Center by renaming it for Obama

Sanity prevails in Willingboro, NJ. Their township recreation center, named for President John F. Kennedy, will not be renamed for Dear Leader after all.

A New Jersey recreation center memorializing John F. Kennedy won’t be renamed after President Obama following a reversal by local officials.

The Willingboro Township Council voted 5-0 on Tuesday to rescind its controversial decision to rename the John F. Kennedy Center, which once served as the town’s former high school, as the Barack Obama Center. More than 200 people reportedly applauded the decision during a meeting in the building’s auditorium, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

“We have to listen to the people,” Mayor Eddie Campbell told the newspaper. “The people have spoken, and we believe in government by the people.”

But there’s still one councilman who kisses the ground Obama walks on.

That vote last month was 3-1 in favor of the name change. Councilman Darvis Holley said at the time, “I happen to idolize Barack Obama.

Dude, get a clue. And seriously, go back on your meds. Please.

Presidential vacation priorities: Yes to the Gay Games, No to a fallen general’s funeral

Dear Leader took time out of his busy vacation schedule this week to address athletes at the Gay Games.

But he was a no-show at Thursday’s Arlington National Cemetery funeral for Major General Harold J. Greene, who was killed in Afghanistan by one of Obama’s Islamic “partners.”

General Greene is the highest ranking Officer to die in the line of duty since the Vietnam War. He was also a graduate of RPI, and as it turns out, from the same class as me. Sadly, I did not have the honor of knowing him. R.I.P. General.

 

How convenient, White House announces capture of Benghazi attack suspect

Look, Squirrel!

A suspected terrorist linked to the 2012 Benghazi terror attack that killed four Americans has been captured inside Libya by U.S. forces and currently is en route to the United States, Fox News has learned.

Sources told Fox News that the suspect, Ansar al-Sharia commander Ahmed Abu Khattala, was captured Sunday during a joint U.S. military and law enforcement operation, and will face prosecution in the United States.

President Obama signed off on the mission on Friday night, Fox News is told. Khattala was captured south of Benghazi by U.S. special operators and is on his way to the U.S. aboard a Navy ship.

Also on Friday night, the IRS claimed it “lost” emails from 6 more key officials involved in the Lois Lerner scandal.

Purely coincidentally, I’m sure.

And Obama’s disastrous withdrawal from Iraq has also been in the news recently, much to the chagrin of Hillary Clinton’s publicist.

Then there’s the ongoing VA scandal which shows no signs of dissipating any time soon.

So, color me cynical, but it sure seems like a good time to divert our attention. And trot out what his sycophantic media will call a nice finish to the Benghazi issue and a “win” for their president.

Because, really, he’s never tried that tactic before, right?
