SCANDAL WEEK DAY 1: The NSA

Monday, Jul 15, 2013 at 7:31 AM PST – GlennBeck.com

Several full blown scandals have bombarded the Obama administration in the past few weeks alone, building on an already impressive list of past scandals. So much has happened recently that one might easily forget about Operation Fast & Furious, the dozens of spectacular green ‘investment’ failures like Solyndra, or even garden variety intimidation like Vice President Biden forcing a veteran ABC news reporter into a storage closet for more than an hour.

It’s basically a full-time job to keep track of all the corruption in this administration, and since we know you are far too busy to pick up a second job chronicling Obama’s lies & abuses, we will attempt to do it for you this week on GlennBeck.com.

DAY 1: Domestic spying, NSA

When President Obama told graduating students to dismiss the voices who warn of government tyranny, he did so knowing full well that just days earlier his administration had obtained a secret court order requiring Verizon to hand over all call data on millions of regular Americans. Not calls from terrorists, but all call logs “between the United States and abroad” or “wholly within the United States” must be handed over to the NSA, no matter what the content of the calls.

But that was just the beginning. Here’s a timeline with all the key dates and information you need to know (to date) on the NSA scandal:

  • June 5, 2013: The Guardian runs story revealing the NSA is collecting phone records of millions of Verizon customers daily.
  • June 6, 2013: The Washington Post runs story revealing both the U.S. & the British are intelligence mining data from nine U.S. Internet companies in a very broad & very secret program.
  • June 10, 2013: U.S. ‘disappointed’ to learn Hong Kong allowed Snowden to leave country, asks Russia to extradite him.
  • June 23, 2013: Surprise! Former Facebook security officer joins NSA.
  • June 28, 2013: Feds previewed NSA leaks before Guardian printed story, but didn’t raise any security concerns about content of NSA leaks, seemingly contradicting Boehner & Obama’s security concerns.
  • June 29, 2013: Report: NSA technology designed to ‘destroy privacy’ can store one billion cell phone calls every single day.
  • June 30, 2013: The new cold war? NSA bugged European Union offices.
  • July 5, 2013: Bolivian president threatens to close U.S. Embassy after Snowden plane incident.
  • July 5, 2013: Venezuela & Nicaragua offer asylum to Snowden.
  • July 8, 2013: Snowden interview: he totally predicted exactly how U.S. would respond to his whistleblowing.
  • July 14, 2013: Snowden has docs containing an ‘instruction manual’ detailing inner workings of the NSA.

SCANDAL WEEK DAY 2: The IRS

Day 2: IRS intimidation, targeting

It’s been tradition for past United States Presidents to respect those with whom they disagree politically by acknowledging dissenters and celebrating their right to speak out. But this President has taken a different approach – he’s using the Chicago way to deal with opposition. Instead of celebrating America’s right to free speech, he’s going after anyone who disagrees with him and he’s doing so with the full weight and force of the federal bureaucratic army. Instead of simply making his case against Tea Party arguments, faced with a wave of opposition, the Obama administration instead tried to silence them using the IRS as their primary weapon.

Here’s a timeline with all the key dates and information you need to know (to date) on the IRS targeting scandal. Bookmark this page and share it because the MSM is already moving on:

  • May 10, 2013: IRS admits to targeting conservative groups with ‘Tea Party’ and ‘912 Project’ during 2012 election, apologizes.
    • IRS apologized on its own, MSM never pressed the issue
    • No immediate disciplinary action
    • Lois Lerner says she’s ‘not good at math’
    • Blames low level staffers in Cincinnati
  • May 11, 2013: Glenn rips IRS, MSM, shows TheBlaze reports on targeting beginning in February 2012
  • May 13, 2013: CBS reports Lerner aware of targeting in June 2011.
  • May 14, 2013: Local news reporter targeted by IRS after tough Obama interview.
  • May 17, 2013: NYT reports Obama administration knew of IRS targeting at least 5 months earlier, despite Obama claiming he found out by watching the news.
  • June 11, 2013: Lerner still has access to IRS system, even though she is on administrative leave.
  • June 24, 2013: New IRS chief says targeting was broader and lasted longer than previously thought.
  • June 25, 2013: Left cheers end of scandal but attempts to say progressive groups were also targeted.
  • July 3, 2013: House Oversight Committee says Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights, could be forced to testify.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
