The Lyin’ King’s Message to Germany: ‘Yes, We Scan’

Written by Marilyn Assenheim on October 31, 2013

Hitler is credited with once having said “Today Germany is ours; tomorrow the whole world…” Substitute “America” for “Germany” and The Lyin’ King is well underway to forging another, disturbing link to National Socialist policies. First the NSA was discovered spying on us. Now the NSA has been exposed, spying on international allies. This time, however, the Dictator-In-Chief has been proven complicit. It is fitting that the article’s title derives from a demonstrator’s sign, during The Lyin’ King’s June visit to Germany. Ironically, Germany is the current target of his attention.

On Sunday The New York Times, in full, cover-the-presidential-posterior mode, quoted National Security Advisor and regime apologist, Susan Rice. An experienced liar and water-carrier for the Imperial President, Rice’s style hasn’t changed since Benghazi: “Susan E. Rice … insisted that Obama did not know about the monitoring of Merkel’s phone, during a call last week with Christoph Heusgen, Rice’s German counterpart.” Unfortunately for Rice, her story was contradicted … by the NSA.

First, The Economic Times dutifully reported the presidential denial. “A report today also claimed that President Obama had assured chancellor Merkel during a telephone conversation last Wednesday that he was not aware of the NSA’s spying on her. When Merkel called him to complain about the suspected surveillance by the NSA, President Obama told her that he would have stopped it if he knew about it.” Then, the Economic Times closed in for the kill; it appears that The Lyin’ King had been informed by then-NSA director Keith Alexander, in 2010, that Chancellor Angela Merkel’s mobile phone was being tapped by the NSA. The story was exposed by German newspaper Bild am Sonntag: “The president ‘not only did not stop the operation, but he also ordered it to continue,’ a high-ranking NSA official was quoted as saying … The (NSA) … cracked the codes of a new supposedly tap-proof mobile phone (Angel Merkel) has been using since the middle of (2013). “

The Lyin’ King denied it himself; he’s an equal opportunity fabricator.

However little enthusiasm the American press demonstrates for exposing our Beloved Leader’s criminality, the international press is, thankfully, less hidebound. Bild am Sontag reported: “Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich was quoted Sunday (that) … ‘if the Americans intercepted cellphones in Germany, they broke German law on German soil.’ He added wiretapping is a crime and ‘those responsible must be held accountable’.”

The Telegraph, of Great Britain, reports: “The revelations about US spying on Mrs. Merkel have sparked outrage across the German political spectrum.” But the regime’s illegal surveillance has gone on for years and has victimized many of America’s allies. McClatchy D.C. encapsulates the true nature of the problem: “…some of the United States’ closest allies are so upset that the Obama administration has gone into damage-control mode to ensure the rifts don’t widen and threaten critical partnerships.” European countries are demanding new regulations against such incursions.

Can Europe genuinely believe “new regulations” would stop America’s dictator from doing whatever he wants to do? Yes, The Lyin’ King has been caught with his jackboots down. Whether the international community is willing to do what Americans are reluctant to do, however, remains to be seen.
