Shut up slave!
How bad is it now? The United States Supreme Court first elected to bypass the rule of law when the pictures of Chief Justice John Roberts with a sheep were threatened with release to the world’s media (allegedly) and decided to impose the right of the government to impose forced participation and purchase of products from companies at the point of a gun (the IRS). Fast forward to this week.
Now you have no secrets, no rights, no freedom. You officially live in a police state.
So with today’s modern “let’s put a chip on your credit card and up your child’s ass” society, it would appear that freedom and the 4th Amendment from that damned piece of paper is irrelevant. From the article by David Kravets:
The Supreme Court closed a 6-year-old chapter Tuesday in the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s bid to hold the nation’s telecoms liable for allegedly providing the National Security Agency with backdoors to eavesdrop, without warrants, on Americans’ electronic communications in violation of federal law.
The justices, without comment, declined to review a lower court’s December decision (.pdf) dismissing the EFF’s lawsuit challenging the NSA’s warrantless eavesdropping program. At the center of the dispute was 2008 congressional legislation retroactively immunizing the telcos from being sued for cooperating with the government in a program President George W. Bush adopted shortly after the September 2001 terror attacks.
After Bush signed the legislation and invoked its authority in 2008, a San Francisco federal judge tossed the case, and the EFF appealed. Among other things, the EFF claimed the legislation, which granted the president the discretion to invoke immunity, was an illegal abuse of power.
I have left all of the original links from the article above so everyone can read just how convoluted and corrupt our nation has become.
This is no slight nor exaggerated statement ladies and gentlemen:
We now live in East Germany, Burbank style.
Remember who we were as the next generation must learn the truth.
