As bad as you think things are under President Obama, it’s “worse than you know,” according to former Obama bodyguard and Congressional candidate Dan Bongino.
While a Secret Service agent, Bongino bore witness to lots of behind-the-scene goings-on, but what he saw with Obama was different that with others.
“We’re in a lot of trouble,” he began in his interview with Glenn Beck.
“The President sees government – and I think it’s because of his lack of experience and maybe community organizing in the past – as this shiny new toy.”
As a result, Bongino said he witnessed a presidency seemingly lacking Constitutional constraints.
“For all the disagreements I had with Clinton, Carter and Bush, there were always limits — there was that line you just didn’t cross. We cross it seemingly every day. We’re lost in the scandals,” he said.
“The Jamie Dimon shakedown at Chase, the HHS scandal, Kathleen Sebelius shaking down the health care industry for money, the IRS,” he listed “it’s to the point where these scandals in and of themselves would be huge back-breaking scandals [but] are just lost in the scandal fog of this administration,” he said.
“It’s worse than people know — and I’m not trying to scare you either,” he concluded.
He said that one result of National Security Agency abuses is that the individual no longer defines “the line between the personal self and the public self.” It’s defined and controlled by the government.
“The question is only whether your private wrongs that have no effect on anyone else become exposed for the government’s benefit,” Bongino said.
“It’s only a matter of time before someone slaps an email on your desk from fifteen years ago and says ‘look what we got against you,’” noting that everyone has something in their lives they would rather be kept hidden.
“Remember, when the key is held by someone else liberty means absolutely nothing. That personal and private self are being evaporated.”
