What Is Obama So Afraid Of?

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Via Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

I saw this memo on the official whitehouse.gov website the other day, but I was traveling and never had a chance to post it.  I figured it would be too late by now, yet I am still not seeing it being widely discussed.  It implies that the Obama Administration may be very worried about the truth getting out about all of their crimes, potentially via leaks from high places.  Read it for yourself, but the language is pretty clear.  Here are some excerpts:

This Presidential Memorandum transmits the National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs (Minimum Standards) to provide direction and guidance to promote the development of effective insider threat programs within departments and agencies to deter, detect, and mitigate actions by employees who may represent a threat to national security.

 

The resulting insider threat capabilities will strengthen the protection of classified information across the executive branch and reinforce our defenses against both adversaries and insiders who misuse their access and endanger our national security.

 

BARACK OBAMA

Oh and this came out the day before Thanksgiving.  How cute.  As someone said on twitter today, if telling the truth endangers “national security,” then we are doing national security wrong.

 

Full memo here:

Presidential Memorandum -- National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs

 

MEMORANDUM FOR THE HEADS OF EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENTS AND AGENCIES

 

SUBJECT: National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs

 

This Presidential Memorandum transmits the National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs (Minimum Standards) to provide direction and guidance to promote the development of effective insider threat programs within departments and agencies to deter, detect, and mitigate actions by employees who may represent a threat to national security. These threats encompass potential espionage, violent acts against the Government or the Nation, and unauthorized disclosure of classified information, including the vast amounts of classified data available on interconnected United States Government computer networks and systems.

 

The Minimum Standards provide departments and agencies with the minimum elements necessary to establish effective insider threat programs. These elements include the capability to gather, integrate, and centrally analyze and respond to key threat-related information; monitor employee use of classified networks; provide the workforce with insider threat awareness training; and protect the civil liberties and privacy of all personnel.

 

The resulting insider threat capabilities will strengthen the protection of classified information across the executive branch and reinforce our defenses against both adversaries and insiders who misuse their access and endanger our national security.

Obama's not afraid of anything. Let's be honest. He was re-elected on a wave of bullshit (SSDD) just like many of his predecessors, and he doesn't have to worry about re-election.

He's the Denzel Washington of politics (from Training Day - not a comment on race, see clip that follows), and King Kong Ain't Got Shit On Him!!!

“Often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing government employee committed to public integrity and willing to speak out. Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled as they have been during the Bush administration. We need to empower federal employees as watchdogs of wrongdoing and partners in performance. Barack Obama will strengthen whistle-blower laws to protect federal workers who expose waste, fraud and abuse of authority in government.” -- Obama campaign's Document for Change, 2008

The Federal Government has an insane culture of secrecy. Public employees think they own everything the government has developed, discovered, confiscated from citizens, and keep it all secret from the American people.

The American people paid for all that shit and the American people own all that shit the government has. Public employees need to be re-taught their role.

The Whitehouse knows about this too;

‘First Amendment Cop’ Becomes Internet Icon

 Paul Joseph Watson Infowars.com November 29, 2012

“I am supposed to protect the Constitution,” says Deputy Sheriff Lenic

?Deputy Sheriff Stan Lenic, the cop who stood up for the First Amendment by refusing to impede the free speech rights of activists at Albany International Airport, has become an Internet icon, with messages of support flooding in to the Albany County Sheriff’s Office and Lenic being honored with a commendation.

?A video that has now gone viral on You Tube shows Lenic refusing to follow the demands of Albany Airport’s PR director Doug Myers in having activists Jason Bermas and Ashley Jessica identified, detained or removed for handing out flyers warning travelers about the dangers of airport body scanners as part of the Opt Out and Film campaign.

“Obviously this is your constitutional right, OK? As far as you’re concerned, you’re not breaking any laws. That’s what we want to get across to you guys,” Lenic told the activists, dismissing efforts by Myers to have the two kicked out of the airport.

Not sure I agree with that. The Soros-Obama Machine was unique in history for several things, including a complete dominance of the MSM as well as getting dead people to vote and rigging electronic ballots. Note not a word from the Red Team about the hacked machines even though some districts had a 99% vote for O. It's all totally transparent, just like they said it would be. The party in power is not going to prosecute itself and the Red Team is lost in the Twilight Zone.

No need for long knives when they can secretly lock you up for no reason for as long as they want. BTW, that Germany passed a similar law (NDAA) for the same security reasons.

A Crystal Night against "white" shops is more likely... They are already beaten up on the streets, so it is not far away.

[For more context, I'm quite sure the nazi german ndaa was passed around '37, after the knives and before the war. I don't have the book with me now to quote text and precise dates, but will do so some other time.]

Nice post Metastar. I think the evidence is that Jon Corzine still walks free and MFG investors are out $1.6bil in broad daylight. The New Black Panthers were never indicted for vote suppression. The Solyndra swindle by Obama donors is uninvestigated. We could keep going but all these things are in the light of day, on video and clearly illegal or suspicious. When government becomes about nothing more than power and favors we are doomed.

The Great Purge was a series of campaigns of political repression and murder in the Soviet Union orchestrated by Joseph Stalin from 1936 to 1939.[1] It involved a large-scale purge of the Communist Party and government officials, repression of peasants, Red Army leadership, and the persecution of unaffiliated persons, characterized by widespread police surveillance, widespread suspicion of "saboteurs", imprisonment, and arbitrary executions.[2] In Russian historiography the period of the most intense purge, 1937–1938, is called Yezhovshchina (Russian: ????????; literally, the Yezhov regime), after Nikolai Yezhov, the head of the Soviet secret police, NKVD.

The Great Purge was also what nearly destroyed the Soviet Union in the summer of 1941. Virtually all competent military leadership had been purged for political incorrectness. The Germans overran nearly all of European Russia. In fact, if the Germans had prepared better and had not been such racist bastards they might have conquered Russia as many from the forced union of the Soviets were willing to turn on the commies. Unfortunately, Adolf and his boys liked slavs only slightly more than Jews. There were another inferior race.

Actually the Croats and the Slovaks were Slavs and they were German allies and many Lithuanians, Ukrainians and other Slavs also allied with the Germans.
