You know, there’s alot of crap going on now under the guise of FISA. Evidently the Feds now are demanding internet providers turn over our passwords.
So think about FISA. The FOREIGN Intelligence Surveillance Act. See that word, “FOREIGN”??? And Obama’s NSA is spying on AMERICANS with it????
We have a Constitution. In that Constitution we have a 4th Amendment. That 4th Amendment protects us against ANY search absent a court order based on Due Process. FISA HAS NO DUE PROCESS.
Legislation, even – especially – FISA, CANNOT OVERRIDE THE FOURTH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
When we are taken to court we have the right to evidence against us (6th Amendment), to be confronted by our accusers (6th), to be judged IN the locale in which a questionable action arose (6th), BY a jury of our peers (6th). The trial of ALL CRIMES MUST be by jury (Article 5).
FISA provides for exactly NONE OF THIS.
FISA is a piece of legislation being used to subvert the CONSTITUTION, which is the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND. FISA is – ON ITS FACE – unconstitutional.
Remember THIS? Our president and legislators evidently do NOT. I have highlighted the portions our current government is ignoring and destroying:
We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
A “more perfect union“? With illegal laws and illegal overriding of the Constitutions, the “Supreme Law of the Land”? (Article 6)
“[E]stablish justice“? With an administration that organized and paid for demonstrations demanding an arrest and trial of a man the police stated had not committed any crime, in complete disregard of Constitutional guarantees of Due Process?
“[I]nsure domestic tranquility“? With race baiting, anti-American totalitarians destroying our rights, liberties and freedoms – destroying our future – with a nation more divided than at any time, more PURPOSEFULLY divided, that at any time since the Civil War?
“[S]ecure the blessing of liberty to ourselves and our posterity“? By destroying those liberties?
We have freedom to assemble – without cops telling us we cannot (1st Amendment), freedom of speech – to print, write, think, take pictures of whatever we want (1st) without recrimination or prior censorship – WITHOUT GETTING ARRESTED BY THE POLICE FOR EXERCISING THOSE RIGHTS.
Congress and the bastard in the white house can say “FISA said we can” all they want but THEY put FISA in place, so it’s just a rubber-stamp of THEIR desires. Well, THEIR desires are NOT what is protected by the Constitution. Just because they pass a law to create a Star Chamber (which is EXACTLY what FISA is) doesn’t make doing so Constitutional. THIS IS ILLEGAL!
FISA and NDAA are UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Congress telling us they ARE Constitutional doesn’t make them so. SCOTUS and FISA telling us they are ALSO does not make them Constitutional or legal.
FISA is negated by the 4th and 6th Amendments, minimum, and NO law can supersede the Constitution.
If Congress is so concerned about terrorists attacking America, well, we didn’t win WW2 by spying on Americans – we won it by DESTROYING THE CENTERS OF IDEOLOGY AND FUNDING OF OUR OPPONENTS. Can you say “Iran”? “Saudi Arabia”? This administration AND its lapdog palace guard military command structure are attacking AMERICANS RATHER THAN THE ENEMY.
Remember, I went to USAFA. I know the oath. I took it:
I ____ having been appointed [an officer candidate in the military – all branches], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. SO HELP ME GOD [caps in original].”
NOT to defend the president. NOT to defend the Congress. NOT to defend the judiciary. TO DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION.
Well.. Obama and his ilk are trampling ALL OVER THE CONSTITUTION AND OUR MILITARY DOES NOTHING… COMPLETE AND TOTAL VIOLATION OF THEIR OATH.
Oaths DO NOT expire. Except, evidently, when one becomes a General or Flag officer…
Article 1, Section 9 states, “The Privilege of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of Rebellion or Invasion the Public Safety may require it.” Well, again, they can scream “public safety” all they want, but unless we are in revolt or have been invaded – and we are NOT (yet) in revolt, and the only invasion is by the bastard Obama destroying our nation, our freedoms, our liberties, our Rule of Law — OUR FUTURE — then public safety is NOT relevant to the suspending of Habeas Corpus — yet NDAA does JUST THAT, and NO legislation can override our Constitutional protections. NDAA attempts to negate Habeas Corpus guarantees in the Supreme Law of the Land – it CANNOT DO SO.
But Obama and the Dems are doing exactly that – overriding our Constitutional protections. And Boehner and McConnell are allowing it without a whimper of protest.
This is getting serious.
Watch Obama on gun control. The bastard can barely stand it that he didn’t get us disarmed. Why do you suppose that is? No public safety case can be made to disarm the populace – wherever guns are banned, violent crime increases HUGELY. There can be no moral reason for disarmament.
Throughout history, there has been exactly ONE reason to disarm citizens. It worked for Stalin, Hitler, Mao and others, and it ALWAYS resulted in totalitarianism and the deaths of tens of millions of citizens/subjects of those dictators. What possible reading of history can inform anyone to any different view of Obama, especially given how he is destroying our Constitutional Rule of Law and individual Rights and Liberties?
Obamacare requires access to our bank accounts and all databases in which we appear. FISA now has – unconstitutionally – decreed that our passwords – our identity (which, by the way, they can impersonate with our passwords) – MUST be given to some glorified idiot who can’t get a real job in the private sector, so he works for the govt.
Why do they want our passwords? To search our emails. To tamper with our blogs. To destroy our credibility. To end any opposition to their totalitarianism.
And what possible reading of the 4th Amendment allows this demand? NONE.
We have had this nation for 200+ years. Our forefathers fought, killed and died to protect our Constitution, our nation, our way of life, our FREEDOM. We are seeing our way of life, our liberty, our freedom, our nation STOLEN from us and our children by a bunch of truly LAWLESS, Statist bastards before our eyes. These people are ENEMIES, they are TOTALITARIANS.
THEY MUST BE STOPPED.
Obama wasn’t kidding in January, 2013, when he said, “five days from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
Lock n load, citizens, Lock N Load. Ammo-up and LOCK N LOAD.
It’s not going to get any better before it gets ALOT worse, it seems. Democrats will destroy ANYTHING and EVERYTHING in pursuit of power. Obama, Pelosi, Feinstein, Schumer, McCain, Graham are lawless egomaniacal statist enemies of everything America was founded to be – and has been – until the Baby Boomers began our destruction.
I still vote for peaceful secession by those who love freedom and cherish their rights and liberties and the Rule of Law. But it doesn’t look like Obama will allow it – unless we start NOW and start BIG.
