Since day one of his presidency, Barack Obama has made it his mission to cut America down to size. Now, he has an ally to support him in his objective. The infamous Julian Assange.
While Obama and company spend their time pursuing how they can curtail free speech from their political opponents, real enemies of America are on the loose. Obama yawns and plays another game of basketball.

Daily Treason: Wikileaks Releases a US list of High Value terror targets
"Today, we, the sitting ducks, watched as Wikileaks released a US list of high value terror targets. Assange, together with his media accomplices -- apparently Assange consults with The NY TImes, Le Monde (france) The Guardian (UK) Der Spiegel (Germany), El País (Spain) on what to publish and when -- decided that publishing a global list of 'critical infrastructure,' including an Israeli weapons manufacturer, of course, was information the public .....needed to know. Why? For whose benefit is this except those dying (literally) to destroy the United States of America?
The New York Times and The Guardian are being consulted. Let that sink in.
Here again, we must question Obama. He knew this was coming. He stood by during three previous classified documents dumps and did nothing. And now this. What is being done to prosecute those who were responsible for the gargantuan leak? Assange is the public face, no doubt. But traitors in our midst, in our State Department and Department of Defense, etc., made this happen. Mr. Assange didn't get hundreds of thousands of documents without the help of senior level traitors in the White House and Holder's Justice Department. It could not have been done. And while we see Holder on television earlier today hand-wringing over this latest, what you don't see are any serious investigations by Holder. Consider Obama, as well as Holder, guilty of treason of the highest order.
Who are they, and why aren't they being brought before the people, like the Rosenbergs?
Is Big Sis Janet (Napolitano) still clandestinely stalking the tea partiers, military vets and right of center patriots?
John Bolton in today's Guardian:
'This sustained, collective inaction exemplifies the Obama administration's all-too-common attitude towards threats to America's international interests. The president, unlike the long line of his predecessors since Franklin Roosevelt, simply does not put national security at the centre of his political priorities. Thus, Europeans who welcomed Obama to the Oval Office should reflect on his Warren Harding-like interest in foreign policy. Europeans who believe they will never again face real security threats to their comfortable lifestyle should realise that if by chance one occurs during this administration, the president will be otherwise occupied. He will be continuing his efforts to restructure the US economy, and does not wish to be distracted by foreign affairs.
The more appropriate response is to prosecute everyone associated with these leaks to the fullest extent of US law, which the justice department at least appears to be considering. Next, we must stop oscillating between excessive stove-piping of information, as before 9/11, and excessive access, as demonstrated by WikiLeaks. There is no one final answer, but the balance must be under constant analysis. Finally, the Pentagon's cyber-warriors need target practice in this new form of combat, and they could long ago have practised by obliterating WikiLeaks' electrons. Had we acted after the first release in July, there might not have been subsequent leaks, and lives and critical interests would have been protected.
But that was not to be under Obama.'
Me thinks he enjoys this.
Wikileaks releases US list of potential terror targets J Post
'Cable details State Department effort to gather list of global "critical infrastructure" sites; list includes Israeli weapons manufacturer. Wikileaks released to the public another State Department cable on Monday revealing the US government's efforts to compile a list of potential global terror targets that, if attacked, could harm US national security.
The transmission cable describes a 2009 effort by State Department officials across the globe to ascertain the presence of sensitive infrastructure targets in their host countries and update a 2008 list of sites outside the US, "whose loss could critically impact the public health, economic security, and/or national and homeland security of the United States."
The list was compiled as part of what is described by the cable as the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) created by the US Department of Homeland Security to manage the protection of critical infrastructure under one US body.
Importantly, none of the targets gathered by the the State Department were under the control or management of any US agency and the cable explicitly ordered personnel not to seek host countries' assistance in identifying critical infrastructure targets.
According to the leaked cable, under the NIPP, targets from 18 different sectors were ordered to be located, namely in the areas of agriculture and food; defense industrial base; energy; healthcare and public health; national monuments and icons; banking and finance; drinking water and water treatment systems; chemical; commercial facilities; dams; emergency services; commercial nuclear reactors, materials, and waste; information technology; communications; postal and shipping; transportation and systems; government facilities; and critical manufacturing.
Among the sites listed in the cable are the Straits of Hormuz, which bridge the Persian Gulf and was the site of Iraq and Iran's Tanker War in the 1980s that triggered a spike in the price of oil, and a Haifa weapons development facility belonging to Israeli company Rafael. Outside the Middle East, the diverse list of targets covers everything from mines in Africa to vaccine facilities in France and undersea communication cables in Australia and China.'"
