President Obama has now thrown the book at
seveneight whistleblowers and leakers, charging them under the Espionage Act of 1917, a law passed to criminalize anti-war dissent against US involvement in World War I...
This administration has a problem with anyone - anyone - who doesn't toe the party line, in all particulars. I'm sure they'll get around to us peons sooner or later, but for now, they are working on making sure that the party faithful are, indeed, faithful:
Yes, you read that right. It's 2013 and the government is encouraging government workers to snitch on the reading habits of colleagues. We’ve been here before, and we've seen where it goes if this kind of authoritarian impulse is allowed to metastasize. The results are predictable, dangerous, and shameful.
That last sentence pretty much sums up the Obama administration in a nutshell.
Predictable, dangerous, and shameful.
