The left is scared, running and dangerous because their pet project, “The American Welfare State” is under surveillance and attack from The Center and The Right.
The Left Knows Welfare Cannot Survive in today’s Information Revolution. Eventually Welfare, really a giant government sponsored voter control program, “Give ‘Em Free Stuff And They Vote Democrat” will collapse but until that happens the Left must terrorize Americans.
Obama “Let The Dogs Out”. Eric Holder is Perfect as the Big Brother Enforcer, the Federal Police like George Orwell’s “1984” which was thought to be fiction or that it was based on the Secret Police of the Soviet Union, not on America.
Unlimited Surveillance of Americans is unconstitutional. It’s as unconstitutional as jail without trial. Obama tries but fails to get around the surveillance by saying: “nobody is listening”.
Here’s Obama’s exact words at a June 8, 2013 News Conference:
“When it comes to telephone calls, nobody is listening to your telephone calls. That’s not what this program’s about. As was indicated, what the intelligence community is doing is looking at phone numbers and durations of calls. They are not looking at people’s names and they’re not looking at content. But by sifting through this so-called metadata, they may identify potential leads with respect to folks who might engage in terrorism. If these folks, if the intelligence community then actually wants to listen to a phone call, they’ve got to go back to a federal judge, just like they would in a criminal investigation.”
Obama said: “the Intelligence Community is looking at phone numbers”. That’s a violation of The Constitution’s Fourth Amendment against searches without a warrant. In Blackstones Commentaries from 1768, “every man’s house is looked upon by the law to be his castle of defence and asylum, wherein he should suffer no violence.”.
The principle of Innocence is breached when government searches the telephone record without a warrant. TA search needs a warrant.
The presumption of a warrant is the individual may not be innocent. Otherwise the judge is prohibited from issuing a warrant.
The police may not look at a telephone record of an individual. There’s no other way to interpret the power that prohibits government from reading a telephone record. They May Not Do It. They lack the power. They lack the authority. The judge lacks the jurisdiction. It’s forbidden. Obama is doing it.
That’s a violation of the Constitution. That violates his oath of office. This is not hard to figure out. The President certainly has plenty of help in addition to his own intellect to get this right. He got it wrong.
It’s easy to avoid NSA suspicion. A terrorist knows to place a call to a safe country, say Canada and have a friend make a three way call to a fellow terrorist in the Middle East. The NSA would not “listen” to the call to Canada nor would they have a record of the call to the Middle East.
Terrorists aren’t stupid. Neither are the American people.
Instead of looking at phone records of 300 million America Citizens, why not get warrants for maybe tops 1,000 suspected terrorists and Listen To Their Telephone Conversations? Leave the innocent American’s Alone.
But the necessity of the NSA phone scandal is the distraction from the Welfare State that it provides. Same for the IRS targeting Tea Party Conservatives. Same for the Fast and Furious gun walking. Same for releasing 30,000 criminals from jail.
Distractions to take pressure off the Welfare State.
