‘DNA, prayer content and now … phone records?’ Sen. Ted Cruz blasts ‘disturbing pattern’

As Twitchy founder/CEO Michelle Malkin noted this morning, the NSA’s snooping on Verizon customers’ phone records is best understood in the context of Obama’s “creeping, creepy surveillance-state.” The latest news about the NSA’s surveillance is only the latest in a tsunami of scandals that involve federal overreach, spying, snooping and targeting political enemies. “Disturbing pattern emerging,” indeed.

    All American veterans should feel well and truly mocked for the idiocy of thinking we could defend this country’s Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic as we swore to do. Our forefathers had it right most of the time. It worked well for more than 200 years, and then this administration eclipses the previous one for intrusion into our lives. I am not a God fearing person, but often lately, even I have to say; “God, what is happening to this country and how do we stop it?”

    Can 2014 can get here soon enough?

      We CANNOT stop it. Even though you are an atheist, you will find that the current state of our nation has already been foretold in the Bible’s Book of Revelation. Mock me as you will, my friend, but it’s all there for those who take the time to read it.

        Joe, I’ve found your problem. Reading comprehension and defeatism. That’s good news, eh?

        • Joe W.

          And your problems, sir, are arrogance and lack of faith.

    Unless we take control of the Senate in 2014, we’re in grave danger. For all their gifts and intellect, Cruz and Paul can’t do it alone. Need Senate majority.

        YES! Cruz/Gowdy 2016 is IT!

        Remember when Clinton left the White House and his staffers gummed up the computers and left a mess of things as a “prank?” Well, when BHO & Co. leave, the mess they leave the country in will be unbelievable. But I can’t think of two better people to start to clean it up than Cruz and Gowdy. No BS!

          Remember they took all the ‘Ws’ off the keyboards. Vandalism and lack of respect are probably going to be higher after the next election.

      Might have to go on cafe press and make me up a couple “Cruz / Gowdy 2016” bumper stickers. Slapping one on my Prius would certainly make some heads explode lol

    Add to all this the fact that Homeland Security has purchased more than 1.5 BILLION rounds of ammo, 10 times the amount used during the entire Iraq war effort…..well, does anyone REALLY believe that our government is on OUR side?? I do NOT. And I am totally in support of a civil revolt against the United States Government.

    It’s so hilarious that all these scandals are being dumped on the Obama admin all at once recently.

    Oh, and if you ask me, this is Obama and his administration over reaching in hopes they SCORE a big stop of terrorism to crow about to make up for their ineptitude with the Boston Marathon bombers.

    Way to go Ted Cruz keep on fighting and exposing the Obama cover ups.
