"Homeland Security Given Green Light to Monitor American Journalists."

RT reports it. The Blaze mirrors it.
Freedom of speech might allow journalists to get away with a lot in America, but the Department of Homeland Security is on the ready to make sure that the government is keeping dibs on who is saying what.
All I can say is, "Welcome to the party, pals!

They are eating their own! Good for them! That's the price for blindly pushing the liberal agenda! I don't really care who or what the monitor! If they ever come for me I will be ready!

Cocked, locked and ready to rock!

HammerHead out!

From the story: “Also included in the roster of those subjected to the spying are government officials, domestic or not, who make public statements, private sector employees that do the same and “persons known to have been involved in major crimes of Homeland Security interest,” which to itself opens up the possibilities even wider.”

Seems that this should apply to anyone who has divulged missile defense secrets.

Hey! If the press has nothing to hide, what's the problem with a little surveilance? Or background checks? Or waiting limits? Or one story a month? Or going back to a single sheet hand cranked movable type printing press like they used when the First Amendment was ratified?

Well ain't that just peachy.

Does that mean that DHS will leave the bloggers alone?

'Cos, as my memory from recent reading serves me, a judge had ruled that bloggers are not journalists.

Ergo . . . Mike you are gtg and free and clear . . . .. just saying

But then . . . sometimes . . . I am gullible too

Anybody who thinks that this is directed at "AUTHORIZED 'journalists'" is INSANE.

It's aimed at *US* people - just like everything else they've been doing lately.

(1) The "Make Dissidents Disappear Act" of 2012 (Aka "NDAA") - passed and signed, currently being implemented.
(2) The "Strip Citizenship At Will Act of 2012 (currently fiddling with the usual technicalities prior to signing and implementation)
(3) Now the "gather evidence against them so we'll have excuses for stripping their citizenship and making them disappear" act is on its way too.

Wait and see, folks.

...and these "civil servants, who emulate the KGB, Stasi, SS and other oppressive "police" enforcers consider themselves to be patriots because they serve who exactly ?

One wonders how the judges will rule should they ever find themselves held accountable for their treason and willful violation of their oath and the constitutional restrictions they swore to uphold.
