Spy on the Press? Yes we can!!

Obama's pathetic excuse
for Attorney General,
Eric Holder
As they like to say here in the south before they "diss" you, "Bless his sweet little heart, President Obama is so phony." At a recent press conference, he was answering a reporter's question about Fox News reporter, Jame Rosen's emails and phone records subpoenaed by the DOJ on trumped-up charges of espionage.

President Obama, always wanting to have it both ways, always wanting to be on both sides of the issue so as to appear reasonable and above the fray, tells the assembled journalists that he's for freedom of the press, but he also WON'T STOP his own Justice Dept. from investigating Fox reporter James Rosen on charges of consorting with the enemy. 

Esteemed journalist, James Rosen, Fox News
Then, in an effort to placate the press and show how magnanimous he is, President Obama tosses them a bone and says he's proposing a MEDIA SHIELD LAW that would protect journalists from having their emails and phone records subpoenaed by the DOJ or any government agency.

In case you've been living in a cave for the past month, the Dept. of Justice headed up by Eric Holder shopped phony, trumped up charges to 3 different judges before they found one stupid enough or ideological enough to sign a court order allowing them to seize Fox reporter James Rosen's emails & phone records. They told the judge that Rosen was a flight risk and that he was a criminal co-conspirator engaging in possible espionage against his own country! How's that for serious charges?

Of course, you know it would have to be a Fox News reporter. Obama and Holder wouldn't go after any reporter of the NY Times, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC--because they're ALL in the tank for the Obama administration. In fact, the mainstream media are nothing more than stenographers for Obama. They report whatever the Obama administration wants. That's why they all have the same talking points, using the same words, because they're ALL reading it from the same White House script.

Jump forward to today, June 6. As of today, we learn that Attorney General, Eric Holder, told reporters this past Tuesday in a "candid", closed meeting, that James Rosen wasn't aiding the enemy--he was just reporting the news. So which is it? If he was just reporting the news, then why were his phone & emails sought by the Dept. of Justice with phony, trumped up charges?

Back to Obama's suggestion that we need have a Media Shield Law to protect journalists from evil men like Eric Holder, who BTW, is only doing Obama's bidding. And Obama says he's proposing that just such a law like a Media Shield Law be enacted by Congress.

I have a news flash for our President who is supposed to be a constitutional scholar (of course we'll never know since his academic records are sealed and we don't even know if he ever attended one day of classes or graduated from any school including Harvard) regarding the Media Shield Law--We already have it and it's called the FIRST AMENDMENT.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."
