A Government of Secrecy and Fear
The rogue regime in DC has been caught acting badly once again--and we're supposed to believe the bad guy is Edward Snowden, who revealed our rulers' crimes. But Judge Andrew Napolitano isn't buying it:
Since the revelations about Verizon, we have learned that the NSA has captured and stored in its Utah computers the emails, texts, telephone conversations, utility bills, bank statements, credit card statements and digital phone books of everyone in America for the past two and a half years. It also has captured hundreds of millions of phone records in Brazil, France, Germany and Mexico – all U.S. allies – and it has shared much of the seized raw American data with intelligence agencies in Great Britain and Israel. Its agents have spied on their girlfriends and boyfriends literally thousands of times, and they have combed the collected raw data and selectively revealed some of it to law enforcement. All of this directly contradicts the Constitution.If it angers you that your financial and phone records can be illegally seized on a whim, then you should know by now that electing a fresh batch of crooks to public office is no cure. Withdrawing consent is the only meaningful and practical recourse left.
