President’s Spy Review Commission Provides Unintended Comedy

“Government commissions are always set up to cover up or hide government incompetence or maliciousness once exposed. And who has the president tasked with setting up this NSA spying review group? The same guy who lied to Congress about NSA spying in the first place!” says Daniel McAdams.

Government commissions are always set up to cover up or hide government incompetence or maliciousness once exposed. They are put together when the government fails spectacularly — as on 9/11 — and they are staffed with government insiders who can be trusted to not dig too deeply into government responsibility for its own failures or even its lawlessness. Look on the board of any government commission and you will always see the consummate insiders like Lee Hamilton.

Rarely is anyone fired for the mistakes made, ( they usually get a promotion) and the conclusions always involve setting up more reform commissions and review boards to employ the multitude of government/quasi-government revolving door beneficiaries who populate the rarefied air of posh suburban settlements like McLean and Great Falls.

Sometimes these government CYA commissions can be quite comical, as Zero Hedge’s Tyler Durden points out in a recent article. In the case of Durden’s piece, the title says it all:

“As Head Of NSA Review Group Obama Appoints Same Person Who ‘Apologized’ For Lying To Congress”

President’s Spy Review Commission Provides Unintended Comedy –

President Obama announced to great Beltway fanfare late last week that he was setting up a commission to review the policies and procedures of the NSA. This was announced as part of a larger reform of NSA surveillance that the president promised, including inserting an adversarial “privacy rights” voice in the secret FISA Court proceedings.

And…who has the president tasked with setting up this NSA spying review group? The same guy who lied to Congress about NSA spying in the first place!

We can only guess who might be appointed as the FISA Court’s “privacy rights” advocate — maybe Diane Feinstein?

FULL INTERVIEW: Watch Mark Levin and Cavuto converse about Obamacare, America, and more

Comments Off on FULL INTERVIEW: Watch Mark Levin and Cavuto converse about Obamacare, America, and more

To expound on Obamacare- the media talking point is that all pushback (nullification) against the federal government is by the “right” and just “anti-obama.” The majority of “We the People” would push back on ANYONE proposing something like Obamacare, even a Republican. When you start talking about states ignoring federal laws on marijuana and legalizing it for medical use, something most reporters are sympathetic to, it surprises them and obliterates that preconceived notion.

Whether you agree with medical marijuana or not, there is no question that it is a state issue and federal regulation is unconstitutional – just like the notion of a federal health care system.

“Follow the Constitution EVERY issue, every time, no exceptions, no excuses.”

Mark Levin seems to have his best interviews when he goes on Cavuto’s show and today is no different. They spend 20 minutes talking about Obamacare, Congress, a post-constitutional America and more, and it’s fantastic. It’s almost just like hearing Levin on the radio.
