Spying on Citizens but Not on Mosques?


Riddle me this. If you were an Islamic extremist plotting to inflict some horrible damage upon the United States and her citizens, would it be easier to find you by spying on every American citizen or just spying on the mosques in our nation? I am not advocating either. However, if the government were serious about corrupting the 4th Amendment to make us all safer, then obviously the best way to go about it would be to monitor the mosques and the people who attend them. (Again – I don’t think that should happen.)

A just released editorial over at investors.com uncovers the fact that the FBI, NSA, and other federal agencies cannot (and will not) spy on mosques in the same manner that they have been spying on the rest of us. While they are also restricted from spying on churches and synagogues in a similar manner, the incredible realization is that the most obvious and likely place to find an Islamic extremist is not being surveilled, but the phones, emails, and other personal effects of millions of other Americans is.

In an attempt to keep us safe from Islamic extremist terrorists, our government is violating the rights of my 80+ year old Baptist grandfather, but they will not spy on the mosque that has been known to teach certain extremist beliefs?

Sure, mi Abuelo (my grandfather for all you anglophiles) who is mostly deaf, can barely see and doesn’t move around so well, definitely needs somebody to keep an eye on him. Might as well be the NSA.

The folks over at Breitbart.com did a little digging and found a near impenetrable wall of bureaucracy keeping mosques from being spied upon. Wow, wouldn’t it be nice if our government worked this hard to protect all of our rights? The best thing about the Constitution is that it doesn’t recognize differences between citizens and their rights – so what’s good for the goose (mosques, churches, synagogues) is also good for the gander (me and my abuelo…and you too).

These kinds of inequalities are what inevitably happen when the government oversteps the lines that have been drawn for it to operate within. It is vital for the health of our democracy and the strength of our liberties that we are all treated the same.  Meaning – no one get’s spied on without probable cause, which then leads to a warrant.

That’s how it’s supposed to work.

    I certainly would hope that spying on extremist, wherever they are, would not be revealed to a right wing blog. That would not be too cool. I think the point of spying is to not let the spree know. DUH. And the government is not spying on granddad. They are keeping a database of certain phone records. That’s records, not conversations. They use this making computer stuff to figure out if spies or Muslims are calling grandad. If they want granddad’s conversation, they get a warrant. Your hero Snowden revealed all this and many of your Rep legislators were briefed on the provisions of the Patriot Act, originally passed by the great patriot W. that law provides for collection of phone records. But hey thanks for not revealing any spy activities. Nice of you.

    Apparently they are not spying on obama either or his ‘secret’ history would have been revealed.

  • hankster6

    This is the way I see this situation. If I was a Muslim, I would not spy on my own people! I, firmly, believe that Obama is, at least, a Muslim, if not a radical Muslim, therefore, I don’t expect him to spy on his own people. He does not consider them to be terrorists, but they are his family. Since he is anti America, he promotes their ideas of hating America and killing the infidels! He can tell us anything he wants, but the truth!! Why do you all think that he protects terrorists. They are his brothers! Think what you will! To him, they are “Freedom Fighters”. They can kill, main, and destroy with immunity! The same way they treat illegals, who can do the same! I make there accusations because it has already been in the news that these events are happening all over America and the guilty people are NOT being prosecuted!!

    • TonyRuiz

      hankster6    Right, Sir!

  • VirgoVince

    WHY are there still any ‘mosks’ left in OUR country, they should have been torched since 9/11, EVERY last one??

    • hankster6

      VirgoVince I can, only, guess that you haven’t heard. Our tax money is paying to build mosques all over the world, thanks to our fraud/president, whom, I believe to be a Muslim, as I stated before. Of course, Obama will never get on TV and tell us these things. They are learned by conservatives doing research. Liberals will not tell you because they will not say anything to make Obama look bad, even if he is destroying our country!! He is allowing Muslims to take over!!

      • TonyRuiz

          TonyRuiz hankster6 VirgoVince The point I was trying to make is that Obama told us that he is a Christian, but his actions prove, to me, that he is a pretend Christian and an actual Muslim/radical Muslim, which ever fits. He told the Arabs that he is Muslim!

        • TonyRuiz

          hankster6 TonyRuiz VirgoVince     He’s not even a pretend Christian; yes, he claims Christianity but we all know he isn’t. That only makes him a muslim liar (redundant). He only pretends not to be a muslim which he, of course, is

        • MichaelBurch

          hankster6 TonyRuiz VirgoVince Never judge a person by what they say…judge them by what they do…this applies not only to obama and his bunch of fools ,but to all politicians as well..I used to be a republican..have been for 40 years…NOT ANY MORE..NOT AFTER THE LAST TWO ELECTIONS…now I am an independent…can’t trust the republicans any more than the democrats…Where is the out rage in the ‘muslim ‘ community over just about anything the terrorists do..there have been more than 26,000 fatal muslim attacks since 9-11…for our idiot government to NOT be watching the mosques…that is insane.and is not acceptable.

    I can add to this one… I sent a package to Luray VA 22835 and paid about $20 to send it with insurance.  The POST OFFICE there opened the package with telling my sis that they have the right to if they want and they DID.  It was books that I sent but I did add a land line phone since she is disabled and can’t get to her cell fast enough.  So, they called this a baby monitor and changed her $15 more for this package.  It wasn’t a baby monitor and it was books and they must need more money for their retirement since the government uses UNIONS to keep them living high on the hog for the rest of their lives.  Kind of like our pez and others in the government..  they don’t want to work unless have to but think they are entitled to our tax money to keep them in fancy life style for life.

          There is the Verizon phone metadata.  But another system Prism collects all email and web browsing.  For instance they know what type of porn Soulivate prefers.  How is it that they don’t keep track of all the websites with radical content?  When the soviets alerted them to the brother why did they not look closely at what he was looking at on the internet?  Seems to me that is supposed to be the reason for keeping all this data in the first place.

    It’s this kind of realization that makes American citizens  distrust their government.  Does anyone out there really believe that these government agencies are actually tracking data of ‘all’ Americans so they can find the very, very few terrorists that are out there?  If that is true, how did Boston happen??  Either they aren’t doing their jobs OR they are lying – both are extremely possible.

    • freedomliberty

      Joy J  They are tracking us because they have classified us as terrorists. Take a look around you. The only people being watched, harrassed, & arrested are Americans. The Muslims have free run of our country. Everything that has come out of this administration has been ANTI-AMERICAN and PRO-ISLAM. We are told not to say negative things and they have rights to stop for prayers in schools but not Americans we cant fly flags, and they are offended by our crosses last I remember freedom included everyones right to speech and religion.. WHEN WILL AMERICA WAKE UP TO THE FACT THAT THIS COUNTRY IS BEING DESTROYED BY THE PEOPLE IN D.C. they are conditioning the American people to be subservient to Muslims and islam

They try to get us to believe they are a peaceful bunch but are prepared to attack and take over our country at any time.  Every mosque should have cameras with speakers to find out what they are planning. They should be treated like the rest of us who live in America and get spied on everyday.  They should also pay medical insurance.  If they don’t like the way we live they can go back home and not try to bring our country down to their 3rd World living and hateful lifestyle.

  • popham

    Of course this is the right and constitutionally proper process; to avoid at all costs the monitoring and/or wiretapping
    mosques, because after all, Islam (Muslims) is a “religion of peace”, with Koran Law (Sharia), which calls for
    international jihad (annilhilation) of anyone who is not a Muslim.  This practice of not listening in on Muslim mosques
    is perfectly O.K., because the terrorist cells created in those mosques and the hateful clerics and imams,
    who preach jihad are of course harmless to this once great nation.
    So, we have nothing to worry about…..right?  Not, not, not.

And as far as races of people being converted to Christianity, that took place two  place  two thousand years before America came into existanc. Remember Phillip baptizing the Ethiopian in the book of Acts? The Church had just begun two thousand years ago. At what point Caucasion began converting to Christianity I have no idea. But, it was long before they came to America. Just remember that America and Islam will never co-exist. It is impossible. They have been brain-washed since early childhood and all they have is a one track mind.

        • popham

          To Inspiri:
          It is not racism however, when a Judeo-Christian nation like America fears and rejects a so-called “religion of peace”, (Islam) which derives its entire message from the Koran and Sharia Law, which in turn calls for the elimination of anyone who is not Muslim.  Sadly, Muslims wantto do us great harm, and it has nothing to do with 1960′s racism.It has to do with virtual survival as their numbers and their mosques increase.

        • Inspiri

          Who wants to do us harm!!! The crazy militant jihadist cleric in Pakistan? The sleeper cell in London? The mosque on your block? Please, I encourage you to go next door, knock on their door and ask them for help. Go ask them how to reconcile the teachings of the crazies who have hijacked your religion. What I can’t figure is the very same source of all this knowledge and awareness on the right (Steve Emerson) is the very same guy who is telling you there is a difference between the two Muslims. The very fact that you ignore this info and spout this sh!t is the very form of racism and bigotry I speak of. Wake up people, you taking this country down a dark and deep downward spiral.

        • LarryChambers

          Do you mean men who are called upon to communicate the word of God when you say TRUE preist? They, in the Church of Christ, are now known as pastor-teachers. Because all believers in our Lord and Savior are holy preist and royal preist 1 Peter 2:9.
          But to satisfy your imagination about why would a man holding this position violate it. Look at 2 Cor 11: 13-15. However, there are no more apostles, but, since  the word apostle  means messenger (although they performed miracles by the power of the Holy Spirit) we can relate it to todays pastors and see what Paul means by this passage. May God bless you in Christ, amen.

        • betty lowrance

          you are so right. somewhere in maybe 32 a.d. caucasians maybe sooner. in England.  on the moslem problem, read genesis 16:10-16 when ishmael was born to sarah”s handmaiden, he was the son of abraham, born of the flesh.  isaac was the son of promise, hence the Lord’s covenant to the land of israel to the hebrew.   this makes the moslem furious.  they have fighting in their very being and they will fight till they die.  we should get our troops out of their country yesterday.

        • betty lowrance

          we do not hate all muslim. fighting is in their souls. read genesis–. their beginning. they do not believe in the Holy Trinity—-God the Father,God the Son and God the Holy Ghost. so therefore these people are not like us Christians which is the faith our nation was founded on.

          My friend, I must say that Christianity goes far beyond “in the mind.” For me though that’s a bit vague. But if you are certain of your Christian faith I am truly happy for you. And I pray that you rejoice with complete confidence. Judging by your comment I was certain you were talking about priest of the Christian faith. Because Christians, Muslims and Islam would never sit in the same company. They do not worship the same God that Christians worship

          Inspiri You must be a total idiot if you think you can equate the racism of the 50′s and 60′s to these muslim fanatics that were always “over there” and committing atrocities and beheadings that we could once ignore because it was “over there”. Read the Quran and you will quickly understand that you cannot negotiate peace, have honest debate, or otherwise have honest discourse with these people. We can only be infidels to them and nothing more unless we are converted to Islam or killed. Nothing else.

    Monitoring Mosque?  Better idea; give them the same treatment they have given every other religion world wide, close every one of their Mosque down and re-open them as a House of Pork barbeque pit!  After the Mosque are closed force every one of them out of the country and back to the sand box where they belong!  They have no intention of ever being assimilated into this country or being a part of it.  They have only one goal; to overthrow our government and replace it with another Islamic Hell hole state just like the one they left.

  • JamesAgans

    The problem is that no group of people that has come to the United States of America has ever perpetrated acts of terror on their neighbors after living here for many years. These terrorist cells are something new, and how to deal with them without trampling on the rights guaranteed under the constitution of the United States is nearly impossible.
    I have been saying this time and again, but any person that belongs to a religion that does not recognize another religions right to exist should be asked to leave this country, as freedom of religion is one of the cornerstones of our democracy. Kick out the cornerstone, and the whole structure falls down.

      JamesAgans Then the muslims should go. They don’t tolerate any other religion

    WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD WE EXPECT HIM TO SPY ON HIS BROS

  • RobertLatta

    Muslims plot their Jihad attacks in their mosques. We should be spying on mosques. The traitor, Obama, has scrubbed any mention of Islam or Jihad from the training materials for our counter-terrorism people. Disgusting.

  • knussel

    Can’t spy on Muslims.They need to build their pressure cooker bombs and other in a secure environment from outsiders.The planning also needs to be in private .Does this sound right?Obama is NOW facilitating JIHAD inside America.What a piece of crap the brain less/idiots voted in.Shame on them

    • hankster6

      knussel Well said! The saying goes: “Ignorance is bliss”, so there are a lot of blissful people in America, until the communist hammer falls on them! Instead of blood in the streets, there will be tears!! There may be blood as well, if O declareS martial law. If he endorses H. Clinton, there will be no need for it.

    • MichaelBurch

      knussel The shame should be on the RNC..for insisting on putting forth candidates that we did not want…obama recieved fewer votes this time than the first time…it was the fools(republicans and independents ) that decided to not participate in this last election that got obama re-elected…I, for one, did not want to vote for romney…but thought he would at least be somewhat better than obama..so I cast my vote for romney,,,rather than sit at home and not vote…I wonder just how many republicans who did not vote are now complaining about obama.Anyone who did NOT participate in the votting do not have a right to complain…

      • terry280

        MichaelBurch knussel You and I both noticed the reason Obama won a second term is because the Repubs did not show up…..actually for 2 reasons 1) Romney was a hesitant/uncommitted candidate just like McCain but a step up 2) All those ignorant talking heads and pollsters at Fox kept forecasting an overwhelming victory for Romney which ended any motivation for the Repubs and Independents to participate in this “already-decided” election….we need more motivation for Repubs and Independents in future elections, not less.

        • MichaelBurch

          terry280 MichaelBurch knussel That is one of the reasons why I have stopped watching Fox as mush as I used to…..now I watch a little of all of the ‘mainstream ‘ news..I find some of those people Fox uses to be  know it alls…and at that time i almost believe they were actually working for the democrats…But really just how many poiticians work for us or have our best interests at heart…not much difference between the RNC,AND THE DNC….

        • hankster6

          MichaelBurch terry280 knussel  If you check your/their sources, I believe that you will find that FOX, actually, does their best to fact check what they broadcast, where the other media will broadcast most of their stories out of desperation, without fact checking. Their ratings are low because they don’t check the facts. I have also listened, out of amusement, to them, now and then, to see if they are telling the truth and, in most cases, it is more accusations than facts. They tell part of a story instead of the whole story because if the story contains anything negative about the Obama administration, they with lie or withhold the negative aspect!

  • joe1030

    The people we have in gov are stepping all over your rights and protecting the very problems we have in the US. It is more or less job protection on thier part. Lets all change this in 2014 and start building together. Forget about bipart talk just go out and vote for someone that will save the country we had before. If you look back into history, all great nations that went down never came back to thier greatness.

    • hankster6

      joe1030 You are partially correct! That does not mean that you are partially wrong, it just is not the whole story.  The liberals are doing everything they can to support their messiah because if they don’t he will cut off funds for their states and any other perks that they might want. Even if he destroys our country they do like their jobs, so you are right in that respect. The liberals say that the republicans are at fault for not letting them have their way! They don’t say that they are trying to destroy America and the republicans are trying to prevent that. As far as voting, I am looking at two outsiders, if they run. Dr. Carson and Trump. If they don’t run, there are a couple of insiders that might have a chance, if we can have a fair election!! If the democrats  have another vote fraud election, conservatives will never will. The democratic states allow voter fraud!! Any state that does not approve voter ID is in favor of voter fraud, using lame excuses!

  • ErikOsbun

    It is because Obama is a Muslim.

  • willyt

    So far it’s because American citizens haven’t had enough to begin to fight back.  That’s changing as the law suits begin against the DOJ and the IRS.
    Has anyone looked into their states income tax systems?  State improprieties have nearly as great a potential for abuse as those evildoers in the IRS.

  • Texan Texan

    It’s so cool that bloggers know what our intelligence is doing re spies. Doesn’t that make y feel warm all over. I somehow thought the point of spying was to know let the spree know but hey it’s a brave new world and if CIA and FBI doesn’t come clean to a right wing blog well it must be because they don’t spy on Muslims and just spy on your granddad….just like good old W and Cheney used to do. It’s an amazing world.

    • MichaelBurch

      Texan Texan what is amazing is that you would have an opinion like this….The point is …bloggers …do..not..know ..more    than our intelligent service….It is very bad when we the people pay billions of dollars to have a huge complex built ,and manned for the express purpose of ‘catching’ terrorists …before they inflict damage and death upon us..And then somethong like rhe boston bombing occurs…after the CIA,AND FBI..were forwarned about those two scum brothers…by  russia…so that is ok for you…It is not ok for me…that was a complete FAIL…AND TO EVEN COMPARE WHAT HAPPENED DURING THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION IS UTTER NONSENCE..bush did not use drones to kill American citizens …even though they deserved it…they were still afforded protection thouugh our constitution for a trial…they did not get that…what is to keep the government from doing that to you or to a loved one of yours.hmmmmm.You can not pick and choose what parts of the constitution you want to live by…it must apply to all people who are USA citizens…This is the worst administration and president I have ever seen.obama has no idea of management or running any kind of business…at all…and it shows He is a megalomaniac just like president johnson…except obama is worse.Look at how many white house staff members that have either quite or been replaced by obama…Obama doesn’t run this country …his wife and best friend…valerie jarrett does…how bad is that…who many times has michelle done just exactly what she pleases at our expense…she thinks she is a queen…I am so disgusted with this administration and it’s totall lack of respect for us or our country…we are the laughing stock to the rest of the world…at least when bush was president..he said what he ment and did what he said he would do…thats why the world called him a cowboy…and i think that is a complement….NO, this is an idiot administration who gives out idiot orders …the muslims HATE US AND ALL WE STAND FOR…we must close down those mosques or at least capture all of their e-mails and phone conversations…and if you think we are..then you are sadly mistaken…for if we were we would have caught those two boston butchers bwfore they exploded those bombs and caused innocent men,women,and children to be killed or horribly wounded…

  • StanleyKerns

    In talk of this sort you often enough encounter the phrase “Nice Muslim” or “Most Muslims are nice people”–when you read that remember that in Germany in the late 20′s and early 30′s you would have been welcomed into many a home and given excellent food and conversation–but these same “nice” people didn’t lift a finger to stop Hitler–the point?–A people who tolerate terrorists in their midst are the soil that grows them.  A people tolerating terrorists (and incidentally, treating women worse that South Africa ever treated Blacks–I’ve never heard of Blacks having to wear sacks over their heads) are not nice people.  To say “That is their way” is no different than saying “But many slaves liked chopping cotton”–in short, Muslims are horrid people, they have–written, on paper–declared war on us–and it is high time we start treating them like we treated those same “nice Germans” in WWII.

  • LarryChambers

    All of this immagraton nonsense, unprotected borders, giving away weapons, giving away billions of dollars, losing billions of dollars, gun grabbing, and all these scandles are playing in all together. This has become the style of this administration. 20+ million is only the begining of the influx of new residents coming to roost on our shores. Why place such a heavy tax burden on our shoulders? How will thety find employment when there are none to speak of. O has never solved this problem (or any problem for that matter). More people mean more resources. It means more food stamps, more medical care, more free housing which play into more natrual resources which play into higher heating and cooling bills for the already overburdened and underpaid taxpayers. Taxes will go up dramatically; somebody’s got to pay for O’s people.
    Letting this religion into this country is not what our founding fathers had in mind. For all those of you who support O get this through your head; AMERICA AND ISLAM WILL NEVER CO-EXIST. It is a dream that will never come true. As far as this article is concerned we already know, we have Benghazi and Afganistan to prove it. Get rid of O and the muslims will go.

  • ElderAmbassador

    Come on now, every sentient being in the US knows that the little king doesn’t want “his” people surveiled.  Shucks, we might be able to catch a POT full of jihadists in the act of treason if we listened in on what happens in “his” so called “church” from their conversations.

  • Ithamar

    The systematic surveillance of Mosque in southern Europe has been the single most effective means of thwarting Islamist terrorist attacks. Every European terrorist attack or attempted attack was discovered to having been planned in the Mosque or directly associated with the Imam and Islamic “worshipers.” It is extremely foolish to allow Mosque to be build in Western nations, to include America. It is insane not to surveillance those who plot your death.

  • Greg137

    “Hey, we the government should spy on the people who won’t actually harm us,  heaven FORBID that we should spy on the ones that have plans to actually kill and destroy us… ”   – We are living in up-side-down times for sure, folks…
    Its more like, why won’t the government actually try spying on people who actually plan to harm the nation? the answer is simple..
    Because if they spied on the correct people they would be able to be HELPFUL to society as a whole, and that goes against the  Left wing credo!  The Left are never supposed to be helpful to anyone, but the ones that want us all dead…

  • DockyWocky

    I guess this means that mosques are all considered enemy territory and that there ain’t much sense in listening to what they already know is going on.

  • AlbertFrancoII

    While not offended, I do take issue with the authors use of the word “anglophile” which means someone that loves the English culture–Shakespeare and all that.  The idea that not understanding Spanish words makes one a “lover of English culture” can be taken as racist in nature.   Perhaps the author meant to say “anglophone” which means “English speaker”.        For Mr Coca:  No es lo mismo decir “anglofilo” que “angloparlante”, y en estos dias tan cargados con acusaciones de racismo, no será mal idea que Ud. tenga la delicadeza de buscar palabras adecuadas.  No hay que usar palabras academicas cuando palabras sencillas seran entendidas antes y sin significados no deseados.  Si su dominio del inglés no llega al nivel de entender la differencia entre “-phile” y “-phone” recomendo usar otras palabras aunque no parecen academico.

      I’m pressing “1″ for English, but you’ve not paid attention, trying to force me (and others like me) to try to comprehend your post in another language.  Perhaps you’d enjoy having multiple languages, and if so, perhaps this small German phrase is appropriate for you:  Was sagen sie? 
      If you want to post in whatever language you call that, go to a site that posts in such language.  Mr. Coca did not write in that language, so why should you – just because you can show off, or show your propensity to force others to learn “your” language?  Not happening, dude.
      I may be able to speak, read and write German, but that doesn’t mean that I’m about to write paragraphs in German just because I can show off as much as you did.  At least I have the intelligence enough to know that German would be inappropriate here.
      AND BY THE WAY, did you notice I did not even acknowledge what language you used?  I did that on purpose to make my point as to the ridiculousness of your dual-language post.  You are either an American or you’re something else.  I vote you’re something else.

      • AlbertFrancoII

        sunshkid AlbertFrancoII  
        Part of the comments were in Spanish because the author used a Spanish term and then equated not understanding that Spanish term with being a “lover” of the British (English) culture.  
        Regardless of your rudeness I am a native bron US citizen that happens to have learned Spanish.  Your definition of American is simply asanine.  My Spanish comments were intended for the author and whether you feel left out bothers me not.  I do not feel the need to tell you what it says.  It was written in Spanish to avoid any misunderstandings of the intention on my message for the author.
        I am glad to see that you can communicate in a language other than English.  If I cared one little bit about your opinion, upon finding something you have written in German I would use a translator to get the idea.  (although after many years abroad, German, Portuguese, Italian and French are not foriegn to me.)  Use the language which best communicates your message–and don’t worry, where needed I’ll do the same.

        • sunshkid

          AlbertFrancoII
          You infer not what I intend, so do not understand the true nature of the post, which is that English is the default language of this web site.

          You used a lot of words in Spanish because you saw ONE WORD and assumed that the writer therefore spoke fluent Spanish?  Right.  So, if I were to use one word of, say Japanese, you would likewise infer that I spoke fluent Japanese and write a full dissertation in Japanese?  Heaven help me if I post “mucho gracia”!

          Rather impertinent, if not downright rude and asinine on your part, is my opinion to expect anyone to be fully conversant in any language because of one or two words, but you can call my post ‘rude’ and ‘asanine’ [SIC] if you so choose; the feeling is quite mutual, I assure you.

    You are right! I don’t love him, nor do I live the representatives, democrats and republicans, who are scared to bring charges against him!! Everyone is scared to be tagged as a racist, when he has enough charges against him to send him to prison, if they can find a non liberal judge who is honest and not scared to embarrass him! No use taking any charges to Holder. He will protect Obama no matter what charge comes up!
