"Thank you, Mr. President, for this honor and this opportunity.  I'm not sure I have the words to describe how excited I am to return to the Department of Justice, and especially to get to work again with the people of the FBI.  They are men and women who have devoted their lives to serving and protecting others, and I simply can't wait to be their colleague again."

“Thank you, Mr. President, for this honor and this opportunity. I’m not sure I have the words to describe how excited I am to return to the Department of Justice, and especially to get to work again with the people of the FBI.

President Obama recently nominated James Comey as director of the FBI. He said, praising him, “To know Jim Comey is also to know his fierce independence and his deep integrity.  Like Bob, he’s that rarity in Washington sometimes—he doesn’t care about politics, he only cares about getting the job done.  At key moments, when it’s mattered most, he joined Bob in standing up for what he believed was right.  He was prepared to give up a job he loved rather than be part of something he felt was fundamentally wrong.  As Jim has said, ‘We know that the rule of law sets this nation apart and is its foundation.'”

Well that’s awfully damned magnanimous and self-sacrificing of good ol’ Jimmy boy… except he didn’t leave!  He stayed with the Justice Department for another year, even though he was certainly and undoubtedly aware of their continued efforts in the monitoring of the personal records of millions of Americans without the legal authority to do so. And, I might add, in direct contradiction to the Constitutional rights of those being targeted. Apparently the straight-out-of-their-ass legal theories proposed by the NSA’s attorneys was enough to keep our man “Jimmy boy” at his post.  Oh!  But that’s all right. As Jim has said, “We know that the rule of law sets this nation apart and is its foundation.”

Note to Obama:

Talk about shovel ready; the hole you’ve dug for yourself is already too deep.

  • Fast-and-Furious cover-up (Americans died)
  • Benghazi cover-up (Americans died)
  • IRS targets conservatives (Affected 2012 election)
  • Freedom of the Press (FOX journalist, James Rosen, victimized)
  • NSA PRISM Program (Unconstitutional spying on Americans)

Are these the things your deadbeat African daddy dreamed about?

PUT THE SHOVEL DOWN — I REPEAT —  PUT THE SHOVEL DOWN!

NSA contractor Edward Snowden braces for backlash after turning whistleblower on US data-mining operation
‘I am not afraid,’ says high-school dropout Edward Snowden, as he reveals his identity from a Hong Kong hotel room

Edward Snowden Prism Whistleblower

The man behind the largest leak of classified information in the history of the US National Security Agency (NSA) has chosen to make his identity public, despite the potential consequences for himself and his loved ones. Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old employee of defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton and former CIA technical assistant, said he had never intended to remain anonymous. “I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong,” he said.
