|NSA Director General James Clapper|
The Lying Sack Of Crap Department
The politically connected insider Beltway Elites lie to Congress for a living
and no one is punished. But Heaven forbid if baseball players fudge
the truth about steroids. Congress tries to put them in prison and bankrupts
them in legal fees to defend themselves.
"The director of national intelligence, in March, did directly lie to Congress, which is against the law," said Senator Rand Paul (Constitutional Federalist - Kentucky).
We have Democrat Senator Ron Wyden asking the director of national intelligence if the National Security Agency collects data on millions of Americans. "No, sir," James Clapper responds. Pressed, he adds a caveat: "Not wittingly."
Later Clapper danced around honor and truth finally saying, "I responded in what I thought was the most truthful or least most untruthful manner, by saying, 'No,' because the program was classified."
Total, 100% Bullshit.
From day one I have been Blogging about the unconstitutional Big Brother Surveillance State. The alliance of government-corporate spying is out there in newspapers and the net for anyone with an open mind to see. It is the toadie lackeys of the All-Powerful State like Clapper who slither in their jobs to hide this information from the public.
The American people have the right to expect straight answers from the intelligence leadership to the questions asked by their representatives. But the Elites have no interest in honesty and the payrolls of government and their corporate allies in business are fat with crooked Elites who violate the Constitution and play dumb in Congressional hearings or on TV news shows.
The message is clear - pretend you don't see anything and you and your family will be taken care of with high paying jobs in government and industry.
Can the nation be saved from these whores? In short, no. Congress no longer represents the people. Congress represents the centralized Billionaire Cartels of business and labor who finance their campaigns. Without true election reform nothing will change.
