Barack Obama Authorizes Five More Years Of Wiretapping Without Warrant

Image

Federal detectives won’t need a warrant to eavesdrop on the emails and phone calls of Americans for another five years. President Obama reauthorized an intelligence gathering bill on Sunday that puts national security over constitutional rights.

President Barack Obama inked his name over the weekend to an extension of the FISA Amendments Act of 2008, a George W. Bush-era legislation that has allowed the government expansive spy powers that has been considered by some to be dragnet surveillance.

FISA, or the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, was first signed into law in the 1970s in order to put into place rules regarding domestic spying within the United States. Upon the passing of the FAA in 2008, however, the online and over-the-phone activities of Americans became subject to sweeping, warrantless wiretapping in instances where investigators reasonably suspect US citizens to be engaged in conversation with persons located outside of the country.

Congress had only up until the end of 2012 to either reauthorize FISA and the FAA, or let the bill expire. Despite a large grassroots campaign from privacy advocates and civil liberties organization to ensure the acts would fade from history, though, the Senate approved a five-year extension of the legislation on Friday. Just two days later, Pres. Obama signed his name to the act, opening up the inboxes and phone records of US citizens to the federal government until at least 2018.

Although on the books since 2008, the FAA has come under increased criticism this year thanks to efforts from a select group of lawmakers who have adamantly demanded answers about a program largely considered to be cloaked in secrecy. In May, Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Mark Udall (D-CO) sent a letter to the National Security Agency asking for an estimate of how many Americans have been targeted since the FAA went on the books. In response, Inspector General I. Charles McCullough said honoring that request would be “beyond the capacity” of the office, and that “dedicating sufficient additional resources would likely impede the NSA’s mission.”

“If no one will even estimate how many Americans have had their communications collected under this law then it is all the more important that Congress act to close the ‘back door searches’ loophole, to keep the government from searching for Americans’ phone calls and emails without a warrant,” Wyden, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, told Wired.com’s Danger Room.

Although Americans cannot be specifically targeted under the FAA without getting the approval of a select panel of FISA judges, the warrantless monitoring of messages involving anyone outside of the country can easily collect collateral information about US citizens.

Speaking on the Senate floor on Friday before the FISA vote, Wyden warned, “You can’t just go out checking everybody in sight with the prospect of that maybe there’s someone who’s done something wrong.”

“Government officials may only search someone’s house if they have evidence that someone is breaking the law and they show the evidence to a judge to get an individual warrant,” he said.

Despite attempts from Wyden and others to overturn the FAA, though, it cleared the Senate by a vote of 73-23 on Friday and was signed by Pres. Obama in Washington just two days later.

Even as the FISA renewal was up for debate on Capitol Hill, attempts to add privacy safeguards that would prevent the collection of personal data pertaining to US citizens were ignored. Sen. Wyden and others had asked for amendments to be included to this year’s update, but all provisions were rejected before the final bill was passed.

Trevor Timm, an activist with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, writes, “all the proposed amendments that would have brought a modicum of transparency and oversight to the government’s activities, despite previous refusals by the Executive branch to even estimate how many Americans are surveilled by this program or reveal critical secret court rulings interpreting it.”

“The common-sense amendments the Senate hastily rejected were modest in scope and written with the utmost deference to national security concerns. The Senate had months to consider them, but waited until four days before the law was to expire to bring them to the floor, and then used the contrived time crunch to stifle any chances of them passing.”

In July 2008, then-Senator Barack Obama voted in favor of the FAA but said in a statement that it wasn’t an “easy call” since the legislation was “far from perfect.” In particular, Obama said he was concerned with a section that provided retroactive immunity to telecommunication companies that cooperated with Pres. Bush’s requests for warrantless wiretapping in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks. Sen. Obama said he would work to remove that provision from the bill if elected president, but reauthorized it for another five years on Sunday without any comment

US Residents Dependent On Government Outnumbers Private Sector Workers In 11 States

welfare-line

If you relied on Uncle Sam to have a happy holiday season, you’re not alone: in much of America, more people receiving government assistance than actual paychecks.

In 11 of the 50 states in the US, residents dependent on the government outnumber private sector workers.
“America is rapidly becoming a nation of takers,” economic blogger Michael Snyder writes. “An increasing number of Americans expect the government to take care of them from the cradle to the grave, and they expect the government to dig into the pockets of others in order to pay for it all.”

Snyder explains that in the states California, New York, Illinois, Ohio, Maine, Kentucky, South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, New Mexico and Hawaii — all states won by US President Barack Obama during the November general election — the number of Americans dependent on government aid dwarf those going into work to receive a paycheck.

According to a report published by the Heritage Foundation, 62 percent of government spending in fiscal year 2012 has gone towards entitlement programs that benefit needy Americans, with more than one-fifth of all of Uncle Sam’s funds going into Medicare, Medicaid and other health care programs.

And although the United State spends more money on their military program than any other nation in the world, only 19 percent of government spending goes towards national defense. By comparison, that’s two-percentage points lower than the amount spent on Social Security.

“Yes, we will always need a safety net,” writes Snyder. “There are many people out there that simply cannot take care of themselves.We certainly don’t want to see anyone sleeping in the streets or starving to death.”

“But if the number of people jumping on to the safety net continues to grow at the current pace, the net will break and it will not be available for any of us,” he adds.

Last week, the Hunger and Homelessness Survey released by the US Conference of Mayors reported that of 25 cities surveyed, 21 have seen an increase in homelessness during 2011.

As of September, the number of American’s participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, reached an all-new record high.

Rand Paul: Congress Doesn’t Deserve To Manage Any More Money

Blogger retaliates on Gannett’s Journal News, Publishes News journalists’ names and addresses

122612_hn_handgunmap2_640
Written BY: JAMES SIMPSON

December 27, 2012 Following the tragic shooting in Newtown, CT, a New York newspaper, Gannett’s Journal News, published the names and addresses of concealed carry permit holders living in counties surrounding New York City and some living in Connecticut, complete with a Google map showing their locations. It was a blatant attempt to link law-abiding citizens with the child-murdering lunatic from Newtown, and earned nationwide outrage. It also is a direct threat to permit-holders, like a retired New York City detective who received death threats following the publication, and abused women living in hiding, legitimately afraid of their former spouses/boyfriends. It also makes a tempting target to would-be gun thieves.

I wonder if the Journal News editor considered these possibilities. Would she prefer to see those guns in the hands of criminals? Would she prefer to see abused women denied their right of self-defense? This irresponsible “journalism” has unfortunately become the rule rather than the exception in today’s “mainstream” media, where reporters and editors feel it is their right to use the media as a vehicle to ram their twisted views down our throats whether we like it or not.

Christopher Fountain (http://christopherfountain.wordpress.com/), a Westchester County, NY blogger, decided it might be a good idea for those journalists to have their contact information published on the web, so they could see for themselves just how threatening it feels to have that done. Fountain was interviewed by CNN’s Early Start this morning and explained his action. His full interview can be seen HERE.

This is the kind of thing that needs to be done on a regular basis to highlight the despicable, rank partisanship of today’s “mainstream” media. They are hypocritical, indefensibly biased, and arrogant beyond the pale. They have also shown themselves to be shamelessly, dangerously dishonest in their misinformation and suppression of news unflattering to the Obama administration and the Democrats over Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the Fiscal Cliff, and too many other issues of national import to mention.
