What Is Obama So Afraid Of?

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.

The SS is there to protect the "office of the pres, keeping the immediate family as hostage, er safe...

or the fact that most normal people have families.

Right , and abnormal people come from where?

Yep, and if you have a coupla peccadillos tucked in the cupboard, they guarantee you a job.

Ironic as these people killed Able Danger to protect "privacy" (really it was to protect illegal immigrants and massive alien loan fraud).

 

A nation, any nation only gets to vote for Communism/Socialism/fascism once, after that everything has to be fixed by default to protect the prior year's state criminal activity. (none can resist absolute power).

"capability to gather, integrate, and centrally analyze and respond to key threat-related information"

See the key word in the second paragraph?? Centrally...sounds eerily similar to a communist regime.

Fascist regimes weren't (aren't) decentralized either, trust me on that one!

What are they AFRAID of?  I think it goes too far to say they are AFRAID of that sort of stuff.  Inconvenienced and embarassed, perhaps, but not afraid.

Obama could shoot a man dead in the Oval Office, on video tape, and remain President for the rest of his term.  At worst, a Clinton-like slap on the wrist "impeachment."

Afraid doesn't apply when you could get away with something like that.

SmoothCoolSmoke's picture

Chaney DID SHOOT A GUY.  Think if that guy had died we'd of ever heard of it?  Or heard Chaney did it?  Dub-ya used lies contructed and/or communicated in the Oval Office that caused 100s of 1000s of people to die.  Where were you then with your outrage?  Huh?

Didn't you read 1984?

They lock people in a room and force them to face what they fear the most.  In this case, they just lock people in a room and force them to watch Ron Paul videos all day long... obviously because Ron Paul is soooo scary.

That will only happen if he starts dismantling the cartel, go full socialist and nationalize the banks and the Zionist Reserve Bank. Arrest all the dual citizenship israeli/american traitors. Fuck taxing the stealing criminals just confiscate the stolen goods.

Then the owners will use their israeli nukes that they dont have.

Sounds like they could do a dragnet and remove all of Washington DC at the same time.

If 'Americans' put 1/100th of the talent they put in writing those kinds of drivel supposed to relate with reality into writing their works of fantasy, what good works of fantasy that would be.

Instead of that, you are overwhelmed by their piss poor works of fantasy that are so shitty people usually want their time back and this kind of Pullitzer reporting, which is so deviant from reality it turns out laughable.

Obama, afraid of something? Afraid of 'americans' speaking the truth?

'Americans' speaking the truth, wooo,what a danger, like walking around, looking at the skies trying to catch that one big space rock that is going to eradicate all life on Earth.

Might happen sometime, but one thing is sure, you wont live long enough to see it, while you keep walking, face up, probing the skies. More immediate dangers at hand. Much more.

Fear of 'americans' telling the truth, that is a good one.

Your posts tend to be perfect examples of this.

Not a bad idea and now that you mention it, it just might be time to BTFD on coconut oil.  -38.11% YTD!!!  For a leading indicator on many of the domestic grains I would keep my eye on the Mississippi river water level.  No water equals no barges with expensive rail shipping as the alternative.

Given how the Obama administration has prosecuted whistleblowers in general, this proclaimation doesn't surprise me at all.

The US have slipped down the rabbit hole and "they" took over way back when "W" stole the presidency in 2000. The same bunch have been pulling the strings since then.
