Federal Judge Rules Orwellian Big Brother NSA Surveillance Program Is Legal

A federal judge just ruled that the NSA practice of wholesale spying on millions of Americans’ phone calls and emails is perfectly legal and does not violate the Constitution, dismissing a lawsuit brought forth by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
In his 54-page opinion, U.S. District Judge William Pauley said the sweeping program “represents the government’s counter-punch” to eliminate al-Qaeda’s terror network by connecting fragmented and fleeting communications. 
“There is no evidence that the Government has used any of the bulk telephony metadata it collected for any purpose other than investigating and disrupting terrorist attacks,” he wrote. (source)
Tack this up to yet another post-9/11 usurpation of our Constitution and Bill of Rights in the name of the neverending and never-meant-to-end phony War on Terror.

The ACLU lawsuit came in response to NSA contractor-turned-whistleblower Edward Snowden’s revelation that the NSA was not simply keeping tabs on foreign citizens abroad, but was actually skimming up giant swaths of metadata — info on phone calls, emails, and other online communications — through all the major telecom companies used by the American people, including Google, Microsoft and Yahoo and others. The judge acknowledged that the NSA quote, “vacuums up information about virtually every telephone call, to, from, or within the United States.”



Obviously the agency needs something to necessitate that $3 billion spy hub it built in the Utah desert capable of analyzing xetabytes of information at a time.

In his ruling, the judge asserted his opinion that had such a program been around before 9/11, it would have helped stop the terrorist attacks, even though on record the NSA’s program has never presented any evidence that its program has ever stopped a single terrorist.

But it’s all to keep Americans safe, right? Trading a little liberty for a false sense of security? The judge also had this to say about the 4th Amendment:
The right to be free from searches and seizure is not absolute. As Justice Jackson famously observed, ‘the bill of rights is not a suicide pact.’  (source)
An ACLU spokesperson Jameel Jaffer says the organization will appeal the decision and keep fighting.
We are extremely disappointed with this decision, which misinterprets the relevant statutes, understates the privacy implications of the government’s surveillance and misapplies a narrow and outdated precedent to read away core constitutional protections.

9/11 would probably never happened if American citizens had been able to spy on our govt. and Zionists.

The government perpetrated 911. The judge is a traitor for defying the Constitution, and should be prosecuted and executed for treason.

Now it becomes clear why Sen. Reid & Co. broke the rules to eliminate the Filibuster: load the courts with Progressive (read: Communist) judges who will see the NSA's campaign of unbridled spying as "a good thing; in the interest of national security"... Of course the traitors ignore history at their peril, because when a truly ruthless regime takes over by force, traditionally, they execute the ones who turned on their own people FIRST ! There are mass graves in Cambodia, Viet Nam and the former Soviet Union filled with turds like that.

I've been asking that for more than ten, count it 10 !!! years, and just when you think it couldn't be more obvious, more blatant, more insane, we find some way of setting a new high in low.

THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE ARE NOT SANE.

Still not convinced?

PA State Trooper not allowed to carry gun off duty due to mental issues but CAN while on duty.

It's becoming so bad I'm starting to think it is intentionally over the top insane just to make a joke out of us.

There are no words to describe just how stupid this has become and what is worse is the fact we are sitting here letting it happen.

The answer to the first question?

What more proof do we need to show that they are illegitimate?
To a lot of people, there isn't enough proof you could ever provide because they are just as sick and stupid as the corrupt crazy people in charge.

Lesson

You better separate yourself from these sick people who love their abusers and organize with sane people.

The nuts are loose and in charge!!!

Judge William Pauley. Remember that name.

This is the same judge who gave a light sentence to an Israeli spy because, well, he is one of or certainly a supporter the tribe, frankly.

"In determining the sentence, Judge William H. Pauley III asserted, "Why it took the government 23 years to charge Mr. Kadish is shrouded in mystery."[7] Pauley stated that prison would "serve no purpose" for a man of Kadish's advanced age and infirmity, opting to levy a $50,000 fine against Kadish." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben-ami_Kadish

Maybe he should join up with duel Israeli citizen buddy Fischer to talk things over, how to proceed with the "New World Order"

"AIPAC, Fischer’s co-author of harmful U.S. economic policies on behalf of Israel, likely sees the Fischer appointment as an important test case to assess American tolerance for openly dual Israeli-American citizens running key U.S. federal agencies."

Who runs America? The "Globalists"

As for who did 911? It was Bush! Certainly nothing to do with Zionism, tsk tsk, no... not any such tripe as this article "Israel did 911 all the proof in the world".

Bush the minor ran not a damn thing , for in truth he had far too many mental irregularities that were present long before his placement in politics.
Bush Sr and other male members of Bush Clan from inside trades through savings and loans to Jeb Bush's hidden part in representing Daddy Bush in formation of P NAC papers and core group.
Bush the CS had a wife well qualified to babysit and keep the child in line.
One could not and still cannot touch Bush or any of the GOP Cabal that Republicans used and then coined term Neocons to throw hounds of the scent; You had and still have a mentally defective mindset by a military that t were ready to kill anyone that tried to understand Afghan,
Iraq or how our foreign policy were realy controlled.
Everyone talks as if NSA has no interconnections with the military and all of the industries that matter in US were not in on the setting up of a civilian intelligence and militarized DHS .
The military is fucking ass deep in the present problems of Japanese nuclear programs and has known of its illegal program forever. NSA it is the fucking head agency of all intelligence and then next comes Naval but the two are so meshed as be indistinguishible from one day till next.
THE FUCKING CLAMP DOWN ON FREE PRESS IS NOW EURO NATION WIDE WITH JAPAN ACTING WORSE THAN CHINESE EARLY COMMIE DAYS.
NO ONE IS TELLING THE WHY OF THE EXPLOSIONS UPON THE NUKE PLANT INSTEAD THEYTALK OF THE WATER BEING CONTAMINATED.
YOU CNN RUTGERS WHO LIKE TIMING TOWERS FALL TRY TIMING THE VERY FIRST EXPLOSION WITH WHEN THE FIRST TSUNAMI WAVES HIT AND FLOWED OVER SEA WALLS.
THE FIRST ONE NOT THE 2ND THEY SHOW ON MEDIA.
YOU LIVE IN A NATION LED BY PEOPLE WHO DO NOT GIVE A FUCK IF YOU LIVE OR DIE AND YOU WONDER WHY A JUDGE RULES THAT YOU ARE TOO FU KING STUPID AN ANIMAL TO UNDERSTAND.
maybe we are!
