Obama: ‘We Don’t Have a Domestic Spying Program’

World Events and the Bible

(Weekly Standard) – President Obama tells comedian Jay Leno that “We don’t have a domestic spying program.” He made the comment during a taping of Leno’s TV show.

Obama also says the U.S. is not overreacting by closing some U.S. embassies for a week. The president tells Leno, “The odds of dying in a terrorist attack are a lot lower than they are of dying in a car accident, unfortunately.”  

And the president says of Russia’s Putin, “There are times when they slip back into Cold War thinking and Cold War mentality. What I continually say to them and  to President Putin, that’s the past.”

Here’s the pool report:

POTUS finished taping the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He was wearing the same dark suit and blue tie as earlier today in Arizona.

Pool watched the taping on TV from another room at the NBC studios.

We are able to report on the contents now, after the taping, but not release a full transcript or too many quotes. 
Pretty newsy interview. Leno asked about Edward Snowden, NSA, embassy closings, Russia, Hillary Clinton, economy, healthcare. 
On embassy closings:

POTUS said the U.S. was not overreacting.  

POTUS said people can still take vacation, just do so in a “prudent way” by checking on the State Department Websites for up-to-day information before making plans.

“The odds of dying in a terrorist attack are a lot lower than they are of dying in a car accident, unfortunately.”
On NSA:

POTUS said government surveillance is a “critical component to counterterrorism.” But, he said, he knows that the surveillance programs have “raised a lot of questions for people.” 
“We don’t have a domestic spying program. What we do have is some mechanisms that can track a phone number or an email address that is connected to a terroritst attack…That information is useful.”
Snowden/Russia: 
Leno asked POTUS what he would call Snowden?

“We don’t know exactly what he did, except what he said on the Internet and it’s im important for me not to judge.”

POTUS said he asked his staff to look at ways to reduce the number of contractors.
On Russia:

POTUS said he was disappointed in its decision on Snowden, but he said the two nations still work together on Afghainstan and the Boston bombing.

“There are times when they slip back into Cold War thinking and Cold War mentality. What I continually say to them and  to President Putin, that’s the past.”

POTUS said he would be attending the G-20 summitt in St. Petersburg, Russia.

He does not think that the gay rights controversy there will affect the Olympics.

    So, let me ask this…It is an impeachable offense to lie to Congress (representatives of the People) and commit criminal activity (felonies in this case), yet it is perfectly fine to lie DIRECTLY to the People (The ultimate authority in this nation)? The reason is is illeagl to lie to Congress is that by proxy they are lying to the People and impeding an investigation on behalf of the People. WTF have we come to?

    Unfortunately meaning it’s to bad more don’t die in terrorist attacks? Who is this jacka$$?

    • Millard says:

      Yeah REDHORSE, I watched the Obama press conference on the Tonight Show last night. It was obviously scripted with Jay Leno throwing “softball” questions the entire night with Obama reading a teleprompter in response to each scripted question. It was nauseating.

      • what have we come to…? Well, I’d say that is pretty obvious….The Tonight Show Presidency…where the Denier-in-Chief goes around soothing and denying that anyone is violating the Bill of Rights… impeach the ass… charge he and the entire Bush Criminal Cabal with Treason…convict the Bush family, the Clinton family..and the Obama family…(along with traitor Jay Leno)…Obama’s marching orders are to simply stretch things out and get ready for martial law…impeach, convict and hang…

    “I pray”

    When POTUS is no longer POTUS (by arrest, impeach, or time), he will quickly become inmate number X357NFG4720 at Ft Leavenworth, Kansas Forever.

    He said that without laughing?

    “The president tells Leno, ”The odds of dying in a terrorist attack are a lot lower than they are of dying in a car accident, unfortunately.””

    Unfortunately? So he’s saying that he wants there to be more people dying from terrorists attacks than a car accident? I mean that’s what I’m getting from this quote here.

    Nah, I’m sure he’s just saying there should be better statistics showing that a lot less people are dying in car accidents and more people dying in terrorist attacks. I mean I know that’s the propaganda that he really wants to convey to the sheeple in order to justify more tyrannical, police state tactics across the country.

    ““We don’t have a domestic spying program. What we do have is some mechanisms that can track a phone number or an email address that is connected to a terroritst attack…That information is useful.””

    BAHAHAHA!!! I’m sorry, but can someone define spying to me again because the last time I checked THAT IS SPYING, YOU TREASONOUS PIECE OF SHIT!!

    It’s like saying, oh no, we are not playing baseball. We are just hitting a ball with a bat.

    How do psychos like Barry live with themselves? Really.
