Obama Memorandum Puts Whistle-Blowers in the Crosshairs

In light of the unconstitutional actions of the Obama administration and the de facto government in its entirety, it should be no surprise that the president wants to quell the urge for insiders to right the wrongs they are witnessing.

Thus, the newest on Obama’s ever-growing list of decrees.

National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs

The memorandum was distributed to the heads of all executive departments and agencies.  This includes

…and the following independent agencies

The directive puts into place the funding for the above  branches to watch their employees more closely, in order to silence the unofficial release of information.

This Presidential Memorandum transmits the National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs (Minimum Standards) to provide direction and guidance to promote the development of effective insider threat programs within departments and agencies to deter, detect, and mitigate actions by employees who may represent a threat to national security. These threats encompass potential espionage, violent acts against the Government or the Nation, and unauthorized disclosure of classified information, including the vast amounts of classified data available on interconnected United States Government computer networks and systems.

Privacy in the workplace will be a thing of the past for employees, as the memorandum goes into further detail on the “Minimum Standards”.

The Minimum Standards provide departments and agencies with the minimum elements necessary to establish effective insider threat programs. These elements include the capability to gather, integrate, and centrally analyze and respond to key threat-related information; monitor employee use of classified networks; provide the workforce with insider threat awareness training; and protect the civil liberties and privacy of all personnel.

The resulting insider threat capabilities will strengthen the protection of classified information across the executive branch and reinforce our defenses against both adversaries and insiders who misuse their access and endanger our national security.

This is not good news for those who would blow the whistle on wrong-doing.  Is this a lesson learned on the part of the President from the debacle that has taken place after the murders in Benghazi? Or perhaps from the humiliation that was Fast and Furious?

The rather despicable Attorney General, Eric Holder, must be rubbing his hands together in glee, especially since the Fast and Furious scandal  put him in the hot seat. Throughout his years as AG, he has vigorously gone after government whistle blowers  - according to Bloomberg, he has “prosecuted more government officials for alleged leaks under the Espionage Act than all his predecessors combined.”

Apparently the catch phrase “If you see something, say something” doesn’t apply to government employees. If you work for the government and  you see something, the President clearly doesn’t want you to say something.   If you see something you should sit down, shut up, and for heaven’s sake, don’t use your office email.

    Open and transparent huh? I do not think its only Obama that has done this but it sure is him that is getting caught doing it now. Our government in general has failed the US since WWII. We as a society have failed our fore-fathers by allowing this behavior to continue and embrace it all in the name of safety, security and of course fear.

    This problem with our government is never going to be cured and will only grow like the cancer that it is. As I was told by one of our ‘proud and honest’ state LEOs, “You have no reason to worry IF you have nothing to hide …”

    Years ago (c. 1970) one had to be right upon the L.A. County main jail to see it, it was originally made to house 5000 prisoners but now, I believe it can be seen from Santa Barbara and can house nearly 30,000 in overcrowded week end circumstances last time I was there which was in 1997, it can’t have done anything but grow since. This same analogy applies to the fed gubmint.

    The white house and shadow government may have miscalculated how many gangstalkers to train and employ. They must be way too busy trying to achieve results concerning the domestic terror watch list…the one that made 400,000 middle class white americans terror suspects…. the one made up of private sector whistle blowers and firearms owners. Direct energy weapons do make a perps job far more efficient, but there is only so much time in a day. If being zapped with microwaves and electromagnetics, followed and harassed everywhere you go, complete loss of privacy, home intrusion and midnight gassings wasn’t enough of a deterrent to whistle blowers–I shudder at the thought of what is in store for an official whistle blower now. WAKE UP!!
