"Section 215 helps us find a needle in the haystack," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said last month, referring to the PATRIOT Act provision that the National Security Agency says allows it to scoop up everyone's telephone records. If Congress imposes limits aimed at preventing such mass snooping, the Kentucky Republican warned, "there might not be a haystack at all." 
For those who wonder how McConnell lost his battle to renew Section 215 without changes, a plausible answer is that he and his allies picked the wrong metaphor. What they meant to say (I think) was that the NSA needs all the help it can get in the challenging task of identifying terrorists before they attack. What the public heard was a defense of indiscriminate and invasive yet ineffective data collection.

McConnell was by no means the first defender of the NSA's program to seize on the needle-in-a-haystack comparison. The first such reference in the Nexis news database came from Jeremy Bash, who served as chief of staff to Leon Panetta, the former CIA director and defense secretary.

"If you're looking for a needle in the haystack, you need a haystack," Bash said during an MSNBC appearance on June 7, 2013. That was a couple of days after stories based on information leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden revealed the existence of the agency's database.

There followed a pack of figurative needles in a field of proverbial haystacks. On June 11, Rep. C.A. "Dutch" Ruppersberger, D-Md., recounted what intelligence officials said at a closed-door congressional briefing: "One of the things that was said ... was, 'Why do you need all of those numbers in a database?' And they said, 'To find a needle in a haystack, you need a haystack.'"

I will never understand our president. His lack of self-awareness is breathtaking, he thinks he’s restored the U.S. as the most respected country in the world, and, apparently, believes he’s the ‘closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat’ in the Oval Office.

In an interview by an Israeli TV station, David Axelrod, former adviser to the president, recalled the president saying this amid criticisms he doesn’t support Israel enough, reported.

“You know, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office,” the president told Axelrod. “For people to say that I am anti-Israel or, even worse, anti-Semitic, it hurts.”
White House press secretary Josh Earnest endorsed the sentiment Tuesday, saying Mr. Obama gave a heartfelt speech at a Jewish synagogue in Washington last month that expressed “the kinds of common bonds and common values that are embodied in his administration that are [also] advocated by the Jewish community.” 
“The president does feel that kind of kinship,” Mr. Earnest said.
In case your memory fails you, Ben Shapiro has compiled an exhaustive timeline of Obama’s “anti-Israel hatred.” So, how he could say such a thing with a straight face is beyond me.

Video: Robert Spencer vs. imam on Hannity on Sharia and U.S. mosques
Last night I appeared on Fox’s Sean Hannity Show discussing the prevalence of a preference for Sharia over U.S. law among Muslims in the United States, and what mosques are doing (and not doing) about it. Appearing along with me was the Imam Mohammad Ali Elahi of the Islamic House of Wisdom in Dearborn Heights, […]

As ISIS Attacks Increase on US Soil, Justice Department Targets “Far-Right” Social Media Use

Pamela Geller / Atlas Shrugs

ISIS is here. They tried to kill us all in Garland, Texas. And the jihadi that was taken out today was part of an ISIS jihad terror network. The FBI has not revealed what is was they were plotting but it must have been quite serious as  Boston Muslim was under 24 hour surveillance.

So what is traitorous President and his perfidious Department of Justice doing? Targeting those of us standing in defense of freedom, opposing jihad terror and sharia.

Something about a story is, yet again, sketchy.

Right is right even if nobody does it.
Wrong is wrong, even if everybody does it.
