The Obama administration has charged twice as many people under the Espionage Act as every other president combined

Noted. Thanks, Cal.
In a word, "yes." Only 3 were charged in the 30-odd years prior to Obama. Each under a different president. Obama's administration has charged 7. I agree with one comment from the article that it's "a foul relic of a foul time."

You get what you vote for. Instead of good old rendition, Gitmo and other ways to expedite the departure of terrorists and traitors like Snowden, Obama has taken the kinder, gentler route of prosecution i the US where most of these caes don't even belong.

Now, if he used this power to go after animals abuser, like the Chinese eating dogs and cats, it would be a great thing.

I wish this article gave more info: who are these people, what were they charged with, where are the jailed, where will their trial be held?
A quiet abuse of power? Unless I know otherwise, I would have to agree.

Obama is acting on what the republicans and their media will do with it. They neuter him or any Democrat when they are sworn in.
This isn't a democracy and government has been swallowed up by the shadow government, MIC and fascism. The right wing.

We know WHY the revolution isn't televised. It's time to set up a D day and send the people to the streets in overwhelming numbers. That or keep doing this semi passive BS.

I actually am beginning to feel sorry for Obama. He is like a deer in headlights. He would rather be playing golf or shooting hoops and smoking his cigarettes and all this "crap" keeps getting in the way.

I agree he is abusing it, but no one can look as "deer in the headlights" as good ol' Dubbya. Absolutely no other President has been able to make themselves look as stupid as he could. lol Here's a link that will take you to more info on the people charged under the Act by the Obama Administration. http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2013/06/22/edward_snowden_is_eighth_person_obama_has_pursued_under_espionage_act.html

That is one stupid, baseless statement, Diane. It shows your understanding of government. Very little.

Haven't you noticed, it doesn't matter what Democrat we vote for? Do you know what the shadow government and MIC is?
