But according to one of President Obamas former body guards its much worse than we can even imagine.
Dan Bongino has protected numerous Presidents over his career, including President Obama. He has been within ear-shot of many a discussion in the Oval Office, but up until this administration has stayed out of the lime light. Apparently, however, the activities of this administration are so abhorrent that he could no longer keep quiet.
Bongino is so upset with what he witnessed that he is now running for Congress because he feels its the only way to take America back from the sycophants who have made every effort to enrich themselves with money and power at the expense of the American people.
How bad is it?
Were in a lot of trouble.
The President sees government and I think its because of his lack of experience and maybe community organizing in the past as this shiny new toy.
For all the disagreements I had with Clinton, Carter and Bush there were always limits… there was that line you just didnt cross… We cross it seemingly every day. Were lost in the scandals…
The Jamie Dimon shakedown at Chase… the HHS scandal.. Kathleen Sebelius shaking down the health care industry for money… the IRS… its to the point where these scandals in and of themselves would be huge back-breaking scandals [but] are just lost in the scandal fog of this administration.
The implications are absolutely terrifying, especially considering how bad the publicly known scandals already are. Can you imagine whats happening outside the view of Americans?
This is not about Republican or Democrat, its about liberty, pure and simple, and this administration has done more to damage our individual rights than any that has come before it.
Bongino expresses this succinctly when discussing the NSA scandal and the administrations use of the information acquired by government snoops all over the country.
You give the government information and it will be abused. It is not a matter of if itll be abused, its only a matter of when…
When the line between the personal self and the public self… when that line is determined by the government that keeps your information in a trove for release any time they need it, how are you free?
..the bottom line is, having worked inside the government, it will be abused. It is only a matter of time.
We are all doing something wrong. The catch is not if were doing something wrong. It is are your private wrongs impacting on my civil liberties? If not, the government has no business in your life… its a red herring…
If youre not doing something wrong? The question is only whether your private wrongs that have no effect on anyone else become exposed for the governments benefit.
…Its only a matter of time before someone slaps an email on your desk from fifteen years ago… and says look what we got against you.
Remember, when the key is held by someone else liberty means absolutely nothing. That personal and private self are being evaporated.
Make no mistake. They and that especially includes this administration and/or agents acting under their directives and initiatives will use everything they can against you when it suits them.
The prerogative has always been to destroy anything or anyone who threatens the establishment. Weve seen it time and again with this, as well as past, White House administrations and Congressional membership.
Now, more than ever before, they will start targeting those who speak out against them and jeopardize their agenda.
