New Bill Lets NSA Trample Your Rights

***FUNDRAISING STATUS:  Yahoo, we are back up and running at my home.  The computer guy did the set up on the new computer and  has agreed to wait til the first for his money and it came in at $155.  That is only $10 above what we thought it would be so that is also good news.  

So, our deficit is now at $300 less $30 that someone donated recently and the $155 for the computer guy, leaving us with a total of $425.00 that we need by the first in order to continue our work.  If you feel  you can afford it and would like to contribute to this effort, than please use the pay pal button off to the right of the blog.  God Bless you all for your support, both in reading the blog, distributing it and supporting it financially. 
Vatic Note:  Convert your cash to hard assets that can be hidden away from the powers that be.  Either that or over throw those attempting to steal your assets, through felony theft, from you.  Under the RICO act, if they say you are engaged in a conspiracy to commit a crime, like two neighbors getting together to grow a garden in violation of SB 509, that is a crime and since you conspired with your neighbor to grow food, then they could confiscate all your assets.  I can't believe we let it get this far.   Its time to kick the foreign invaders out of our country.  No question about it now.

As I have said many times, these people doing all this to us and others,  are completely and irretrievably insane.  How they got this way could have been through any number of means, so its speculation at this point, but that does not preclude us from putting our foot down and saying "NO MORE, if you do not stop all this then you will be incarcerated and no one you know will be able to find you.   That is the only way to show just how serious we really are.  
New Bill Lets NSA  Trample Your Rights

The USA Freedom Act has passed muster at the two standing committees in the House of Representatives and looks poised to be passed into law. But I’m left wondering if Americans are about to get burned again by the fine print.

As the first attempt at reforming National Security Agency (NSA) with legislation since the Edward Snowden revelations, the act would end the NSA’s practice of collecting information on calls made by Americans and storing them for at least five years.

That’s a good thing — in theory.

The records would remain in the hands of telephone companies. The NSA would need to apply to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), convincing the organization that someone was a terrorist before getting access to the records.

That’s a bad thing — in practice.

Gaining approval from FISC isn’t much of a public defense, because the group of 11 judges chosen by the chief justice rubber stamps nearly everything the NSA requests.

According to the Justice Department, NOT ONE of the 1,856 applications for electronic surveillance and physical searches in 2012 was denied. Of course, it doesn’t hurt the NSA’s case that arguments against their applications aren’t permitted by the court.

Furthermore, when the NSA gets necessary approval, it will be permitted to trace a person’s calling patterns back two layers. In other words, the NSA can trace who the suspect called as well as whoever those people called. In addition, the NSA will now be able to collect metadata on phone users — something the agency could not do prior to this piece of legislation.

While this is a good idea when actually dealing with terrorists threatening the lives of others, it leaves a bad taste in my mouth to think about all the innocent Americans who will be caught up in the NSA’s wide net.

For every step forward we take in Congress, the country takes two steps back, trampling the rights of Americans. We’ve seen legislators slip wealth confiscation clauses into bills and it looks like the NSA has built a nice cushion into this bill.

Acting under the guise of protecting Americans, the government strengthens its hold on your rights and your wealth. It’s time to develop a plan to protect yourself and your family before our representatives vote away the last of our liberties.
