Senate revives Patriot Act surveillance measures

Recommended Posts

 CSB    2,152

The US Senate on Tuesday revived three surveillance provisions of the Patriot Act that had expired early Monday because of Senate discord.

The legislation, the USA Freedom Act, was approved two weeks ago in the House. President Barack Obama was to sign the Senate-House package today.

One Patriot Act provision renewed under the bill was a variation of the phone-records spy program that National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden disclosed in 2013.

The "business records" section enabled the NSA's bulk telephone metadata program. It grants the government powers to seize most any record, even banking and phone records, by getting a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court. The nation's spies must assert that the records are "relevant" to a terrorism investigation to get the warrant from the secret court.

Ya know in my opinion This is just another meaningless UN American UN constitutional attempt to sugar coat the actions of wanna be tyrants.  More laughable ideas they push:

War on Terror

Carbon credits/ Global warming

20 guys crashing planes into buildings

israel is an ally  and friendly nation

Russia is the problem

Fed Res and IRS is American and Legitimate

WMDs in Iraq

Afghanistan is not about the heroin

Iran  wanting Nukes just to destroy Isreal  even though it wouuld destroy them too.

Allowing dual citizens to hold office is legal

Infringed means the opposite

Common Core is education

Obamas Birth Cert.

Honest and good cops

Rockets rain down in israel by the thousandsl

The science is sound  ALGORE defending fraudulent data

Credibility and Truth is no concern where buracrats are
