Congress Passes Bill Allowing Warrantless Forfeiture of Private Communications

Libertarian_Geek Re:Everyone who blamed Bush for everything... (379 comments)

Why would either party stop it? Imagine the political power of a party that can eavesdrop on their opposition.

This is a corrupt game of musical chairs.

I'm surprised the music hasn't stopped for the last time.


If only we had real journalists and uncorrupted law enforcement to hold them accountable.

Congress Passes Bill Allowing Warrantless Forfeiture of Private Communications

Pretty sure that Snowden released enough evidence to start the process.

Congress Passes Bill Allowing Warrantless Forfeiture of Private Communications

Libertarian_Geek Re:Neither the Republicans nor the Democrats ... (379 comments)

... cares for the nation ... works for the people

As long as we still rely on the Republicans and the Democrats to steer this country, USA is going nowhere fast

If we were truly going nowhere, it would be less worrisome. Make no mistake, we're moving and the ultimate destination is frightening.

Actually... lawmakers and NSA staff could be arrested for deprivation of rights under color of law.

Congress Passes Bill Allowing Warrantless Forfeiture of Private Communications

Libertarian_Geek Executive orders aren't "bigger on the inside." (379 comments)

No, it's not "currently allowed under an Exec Order".

Neither the constitution, nor the laws bound by it, nor the orders bound by the law are "bigger on the inside"... They're not TARDISes. They may not exceed their legal limits.
Laws must not exceed the authority routed to them by the constitution. Orders must not exceed the authority routed to them by law. That's how the system is designed.

British Spies Are Free To Target Lawyers and Journalists

Libertarian_Geek Re:It's what you do with it that counts (184 comments)

Letting any member of government ignore the reasonable constraints placed on them by their society because they might do what's right for their country instead of what promotes their own career is like letting a rabid dog free in a shopping mall because it might bite a shoplifter.

Pianist Asks Washington Post To Remove Review Under "Right To Be Forgotten"

Libertarian_Geek No right to be forgotten. It's a tyrannica demand (257 comments)

You can't demand to be forgotten without demanding that another person give up their rights to remember.

The so-called "right to be forgotten" is not a right. It's a demand that others limit their rights of free speech and freedom of expression.

Even if there was such a right, it would not promote a healthy society.
Such a "right" would mean prevent others from learning through the experience of others.

The Executive Order That Redefines Data Collection

Libertarian_Geek Re:sigh... (126 comments)

Que the "See Reagan did this, so Obama is still my hope and change." BS.

...and "Bush was so much worse."

While we're bickering about "my team" vs "your team", the constitution erodes further....

Don't you remember George Walker Bush declared the Constitution of the United States of America be to "a worthless piece of paper?" The constitution eroded in full on that day.

There it is. Right on cue.
Thanks for proving my point and getting that garbage out of the way.

Now, can we get to the business of restoring the constitution and kicking out anyone who continues to break their oaths regardless of their political associations?

The Executive Order That Redefines Data Collection

Libertarian_Geek Re:Do Not Go Gentle, Rage! (126 comments)

Exactly.
The law is constrained by the constitution, orders (executive, and otherwise) are constrained by the law.
The point at which the constrained item reaches beyond its container is the point at which the item becomes invalid.
In other words, unlawful orders are null be definition. Unconstitutional law is no law at all. Unconstitutional orders are not orders.

FAA Clears Movie and TV Drones For Takeoff

Libertarian_Geek Re:#Bias (50 comments)

no ... the money gets the honey, bunny! It has nothing to do with political ideology and everything to do with what politicians you own.

In the long-run, yes. You're absolutely right. In the short-run, it's the ones currently in office returning the favor to those that got them there.
Money and political ideology are inseparable in modern politics. Big oil feeds one. Big media feeds the other.

So, the left leaning (Hollywood production) companies get a benefit from the executive branch that other companies do not.

CIA Director Brennan Admits He Was Lying: CIA Really Did Spy On Congress

Libertarian_Geek Re:And no one will go to jail (266 comments)

Imagine a government agency that knows which members of congress are pedophiles and let's say that that agency possesses data that proves such activity.
Now imagine that government agency's top dog lies to congress.

If you can imagine what happens next, please let us know.

CIA Director Brennan Admits He Was Lying: CIA Really Did Spy On Congress

Libertarian_Geek Re:And no one will go to jail (266 comments)

U.S. Constitution - Article 3 Section 3
"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court."
---------

Is the CIA not an organization of war?
As such, are the tools and methods of the CIA not tools and methods of levying war?
Did the CIA not just admit to using those tools and methods of levying war against this country's government?
Then did the CIA not levy war against our own country by using the tools and methods of levying war against us?
