Obama Admits The Government Monitors Your Browsing History

“The jaws of power are always open to devour, and her arm is always stretched out, if possible, to destroy the freedom of thinking, speaking, and writing.”
–– John Adams,  A Dissertation on the Canon and Feudal Law.

During a PBS town hall meeting, president Obama was asked why he and Hillary want to control and restrict guns and ammunition to responsible gun owners. Obama’s response was the typical stock answer of rejecting the “notion” that anyone is hell-bent on taking away “folks’ guns”, yada yada.

However, as AllOutdoor notes, if you listen carefully to Obama’s full response, there is a comment Obama gives about knowing browser history that should sent everyone into a blind rage.

“I just came from a meeting, today, in the situation room, in which I’ve got people who we know have been on ISIL websites living here in the United States – US citizens. And we’re allowed to put them on the no fly list when it comes to airlines, but because of the National Rifle Association I cannot prohibit those people from buying guns!”

Based on browser history – pardon? What the president just confirmed is that someone from the government is noting everyone’s browsing history, determining which websites are not to be visited, and furthermore, if someone does visit the website for whatever reason they get put on a no fly list.

The Anonymous Conservative goes on an epic rant about this revelation.

Now, how are they finding out who is visiting those websites? How big is the unit watching that? What websites are considered verboten by the Fedguv? Who determines the status of a website? Do they have a warrant to surveil what websites people are visiting? Is there any oversight, by any elected body? Nobody knows, because that section of the government is completely hidden from everyone’s view, and the media will never dare ask, for some unimaginable reason.

Imagine how powerful the machine is, that it is actually aware of who is looking at what online. Imagine how powerful the machine is, that an airline executive picks up the phone to hear a disembodied voice say, “You aren’t going to sell this guy a plane ticket today.” No airline asks questions, and nobody asks for a court order or government document. Imagine the power, that the American media dare not mention anything about it. Everyone just jumps to do what they are told. What does the government have on the airline people, the media, the politicians, that everyone will be so blindly obedient, and never even act as if the beast stalking them could possibly exist?

This isn’t necessarily shocking, but it should get people to understand that the government does in fact know much more than they let on. After all, this NSA data center in Utah wasn’t built for nothing…

In the real world, there are no safe places, nothing is politically correct, and the world just isn’t fair. There are people that wish to take away your freedom and your life, stifle your thoughts and your opinions, and determine what you read, hear, or are.
America’s leadership, through its own hubris and greed have chosen to use such a strategy and tactic against their own citizens rather than its enemies at large; leaving the nation ill-prepared to counter future challenges, and giving those enemies an advantage they would never have achieved on their own. Perhaps that was their intention all along.
