Journalist Sharyl Attkisson filed a complaint to re-open her case this week, alleging that the Obama administration spied on her illegally from 2011-2014.
She originally filed the lawsuit in 2015 alleging that her civil liberties were violated, but the case was ultimately dismissed. Attkisson believes that new information that has come to light will vindicate her once the case is reopened.
“The plaintiffs first acquired the details regarding key individuals involved in the surveillance in August 2019 from a person involved in the wrongdoing who has come forward to provide information,” Attkisson said in a complaint filed in federal court in Maryland.
Attkisson also made a filing in Virginia, where the Fourth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals affirmed the dismissal of her lawsuit last year. She worked as a journalist at CBS News during the alleged instances of illegal spying, and now hosts a television show on Sinclair broadcasting.
Attkisson broke the story of the Operation Fast and Furious scandal, an Obama-era program that ended up running guns to drug dealers south of the border. Her reporting on that case was a black eye on the Obama regime that allegedly put her in the sights of the administration.
Rod Rosenstein is listed as a defendant in the lawsuit, as he was a U.S. Attorney at the time. He would later become an infamous figure due to his participation in Russia-gate while serving as deputy attorney general in the Trump administration.
Attkisson believes that her 4th Amendment rights were violated by the Obama administration, and her electronic devices were monitored by the regime as she reported on issues like the Benghazi attack in 2012.
While President Trump regularly gets maligned as waging a war on the free press for calling out the fake news, it was really Obama who engaged in a war against journalism.
Obama engaged in an unprecedented crackdown on journalists and leakers, using the Espionage Act to prosecute them:
It’s hardly news that the Obama administration is intensely and, in many respects, unprecedentedly hostile toward the news-gathering process. Even the most Obama-friendly journals have warned of what they call “Obama’s war on whistleblowers”. James Goodale, the former general counsel of the New York Times during its epic fights with the Nixon administration, recently observed that “President Obama wants to criminalize the reporting of national security information” and added: “President Obama will surely pass President Richard Nixon as the worst president ever on issues of national security and press freedom.”
Still, a new report released today by the highly respected Committee to Protect Journalists – its first-ever on press freedoms in the US – powerfully underscores just how extreme is the threat to press freedom posed by this administration. Written by former Washington Post executive editor Leonard Downie, Jr., the report offers a comprehensive survey of the multiple ways that the Obama presidency has ushered in a paralyzing climate of fear for journalists and sources alike, one that severely threatens the news-gathering process…
And this pernicious dynamic extends far beyond national security: “Ellen Weiss, Washington bureau chief for E.W. Scripps newspapers and stations, said ‘the Obama administration is far worse than the Bush administration’ in trying to thwart accountability reporting about government agencies.” It identifies at least a dozen other long-time journalists making similar observations.
The report ends by noting the glaring irony that Obama aggressively campaigned on a pledge to usher in The Most Transparent Administration Ever™. Instead, as the New Yorker’s investigative reporter Jane Mayer recently said about the Obama administration’s attacks: “It’s a huge impediment to reporting, and so chilling isn’t quite strong enough, it’s more like freezing the whole process into a standstill.”
Attkisson may have another chance to receive justice as she pushes back against the unconstitutional practices of the Obama administration.
Biden White House Will ‘Start Acting Now’ on Slavery Reparations Without Congressional Approval
Enshrining the new leftist caste system.
The Biden White House has announced that they will “start acting now” on reparations for slavery regardless of what goes on in Congress.
“We don’t want to wait on a study. We’re going to start acting now,” Senior White House adviser Cedric Richmond said during a recent interview with Axios.
“We have to start breaking down systemic racism and barriers that have held people of color back and especially African-Americans,” he added.
Richmond believes that House Resolution 40, a measure introduced in the legislature to study reparations, will eventually pass, but he maintains that the administration will move on the issue regardless of what the facts or logic of the matter dictate.
“We have to do stuff now to improve the plight, status, future, and empowerment of Black people all around the country,” Richmond said.
Richmond is building on the case made by White House press secretary Jen Psaki, who has affirmed the Biden administration’s support of the reparations study.
“He certainly would support a study of reparations,” Psaki said. “He understands we don’t need a study to take action right now on systemic racism, so he wants to take actions within his own government in the meantime.”
Biden is already taking measures to give additional handouts to certain minority constituents. He took executive action shortly after being installed as president that compelled the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) “to redress racially discriminatory federal housing policies that have contributed to wealth inequality.”
Richmond confirmed that the Biden administration will be conferring additional government-granted privileges to minorities, particularly when it comes to educational opportunity.
“If you start talking about free college tuition to HBCUs [Historically Black Colleges and Universities] and you start talking about free community college in Title I and all of those things, I think that you are well on your way. Those are doable,” he said.
Big League Politics has reported on Biden’s embrace of Black Lives Matter radicalism as part of his devil’s bargain to seize power:
The terrorist group Black Lives Matter (BLM) uses the same digital fundraising platform, ActBlue, that is used by former vice president Joe Biden and many prominent political figures in the Democrat Party, the National Pulse has discovered.
“We appreciate your support of the movement and our ongoing fight to end state-sanctioned violence, liberate Black people, and end white supremacy forever,” the donation tab on the BLM official website states, which is rerouted to ActBlue.
The donation page notes that “ActBlue Charities is a registered charitable organization formed to democratize charitable giving” and any “contribution is made from my own funds or the funds of an authorizing corporation or other entity, and the funds are not being provided by any other person or entity.”
Biden’s presidential campaign has received a stunning $119,253,857 from the ActBlue platform, which sustains his presidential ambitions as well as the BLM terror movement.
Biden is living up to his mandate to enact an aggressive and corrosive form of identity politics. As the demographic collapse of the historical American nation continues, a new anti-white caste system of sorts will continue to take shape.
