Obama: One If By Land, Two If By Sea, Three If By Metadata

Paul Revere

This article, by John Rappoport, comes from his website,

In his Friday speech, Obama ignored the essence of the FISA Court, the secret body that’s rubber-stamped warrants to do surveillance for the past 35 years.

Most of these requests for warrants come from NSA and the FBI, and only government attorneys may appear before the Court, none of whose decisions are made public. Therefore, the Court is a de facto piece of the Executive Branch, and as such its existence violates the separation of powers principle of the Constitution.

One of Snowden’s documents revealed that FISA had approved a blanket warrant requiring Verizon to make available, to NSA, records of all daily phone calls in its system.

No, President Obama said nothing about this. Instead, he led off his speech on the NSA and national security with these words:

“At the dawn of our Republic, a small, secret surveillance committee, born out of the Sons of Liberty, was established in Boston. And the group’s members included Paul Revere. At night, they would patrol the streets, reporting back any signs that the British were preparing raids against America’s early patriots.”

Paul Revere as a metaphor for NSA spying.

Yes, it’s not widely known that Paul was a Peeping Tom. He had a mental disorder. He was compulsively sneaking into houses of the colonists in Boston and watching them read by candlelight.

Paul also hung around local meat markets swatting flies and eavesdropping on conversations.

  1. So just because someone on the internet says Paul Revere was a peeping tom I am supposed to believe it. Just curious why the author of this article does not list any sources to this outlandish statement? I have read many books on American history and never recall reading anything that would support the authors claim.

    I have been thinking about joining oath keepers but when I read articles like this it really puts me off.

  2. He was being sarcastic. Making “fun” of Obama and you are zeroing in on Revere.

    Please consider staying at Oathkeepers as they have much that you might learn from, and you probably have much to offer them. I have learned a lot from them myself, though I am not so sure that I give back as much.

    John Rappoport ran for office in California mostly on a constitutional basis – and he lost. But he has MUCH to offer that state, and our nation. He writes really good stuff, but you will find the occasional sarcasm inserted or a sarcastic article like the one above. We all need some type of humor to get us through these treasonous times.
