US Appeals Court for the District of Columbia will allow NSA to continue mass surveillance on innocent Americans.
Privacy, a civil liberty protected by the 4th amendment of the constitituion, no longer exists in our country. A three-judge panel recently ruled that NSA bulk collection will continue. Of course, they never revealed how many supposed threats were actually caught through the use of this highly expensive, unconstitutional program They never will, because it isn’t about security, it’s about control.
They want to know who you’re talking to, why you’re talking, and what you’re saying. They want to control the population through unconstitutional means, without warrant. Gone are the days of due process, and gone are the days of respecting the 4th amendment. As Republicans argue over the constitutionality of Donald Trump’s immigration plan, power-hungry egomaniacal sycophants are eradicating our privacy rights in plain view.
Thankfully Republican Presidential candidate and Kentucky Senator, Rand Paul, spoke about the issue, vowing to shut down the NSA’s bulk data collection center. He said: “I’m on my way to the airport, but we decided to stop by the NSA facility in Utah. When I become President, we’ll convert it into a Constitutional Center to study the Fourth Amendment! Bulk data collection must end!” (source)
Barack H. Obama, who embarrassingly taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School, still believes privacy snooping measures are essential to national security. Mr. Obama must love the number zero, not only does it represent the amount of key promises he actually followed through with after being elected, it also represents the number of actual terrorists we’ve caught by desecrating the Bill of Rights.
