Obama expands Bush warrant-less wiretapping defense

by

This was not a story I wanted to write.   It is a story that should disgust every single American that is paying attention.  Our Constitution, systematically, is being chipped away right before our eyes.  New laws that are clearly against everything our forefathers stood for are going unchallenged by our courts and by our judges.  I thought the Obama Administration was going to be different.

Freedom is compliance.

Freedom is compliance.

This is a story that Barack Obama does not want you to see.  In secret, the Obama Justice Department has quietly expanded the warrant-less wiretapping that began during the Bush Administration.  Honestly, I can hardly write this story.  I am so incredibly disappointed.

The ACLU demanded that phone companies release information that they gathered under warrant-less wiretapping program using the Freedom of Information Act.  However, the case was delayed until Obama took office because his campaign rhetoric led many to believe that this practice would be stopped.  Stupid us.

The request was rejected because a government that is supposed to be of, by, and for the people, doesn’t want us to know which laws were broken during the surveillance.  But they didn’t stop there.   The Obama Justice Department created, out of thin fucking air, a new reason why this request was rejected.  The old law said that phone companies like AT&T would not be held accountable for listening to conversations.  Now, the Obama Justice Department is saying that government officials will retain the same immunity.  The government can now monitor your emails, your phone conversations, and your internet browsing habits with complete immunity.

At this point, I’d like to direct your attention to the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Obama is not only protecting his Administration from violating the Constitution, he is protecting all of the Bush Administration as well.  We are losing our liberties.  The personal conversations of American citizens, hell, even calls home from soldiers in Iraq were listened in on by the Government.   Neither of these worthless parties are standing up for the rights of Americans.  What are we letting ourselves turn into?
