[DT]House Passes Telecom Immunity Bill, Expands Domestic Spying Powers

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Quote:
As the bill currently stands, a court review will determine if providers received a presidential order requesting the wiretaps – regardless of whether or not the correct warrants were filed – and then drop all pending litigation if that condition was me
Quote:
The “warrantless wiretapping†program, initiated by the Bush Administration in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, ran for almost six years until it was discovered by the New York Times.
Quote:
In addition to the aforementioned telecom immunity provisions, the FISA Amendments Bill would:

Allow the government to conduct emergency eavesdropping without court approval for up to a week.
Allow secret FISA courts to review expiring surveillance orders for up to 30 days before renewing them.
Prohibit the government from superseding surveillance rules, even if it invokes war powers.
Require court permission to wiretap Americans overseas.
Obscure out American citizens’ names when wiretapping conversations between an American citizen and a foreigner.
This crap right here is why I am on the terrorist watch list, please leave the political talk out of it, you guys just need to know whats going on.

Interesting, this kind of stuff never makes the news headlines and I don't understand why it doesn't ?

To me this is very important, but I guess some Americans don't care that our government is slowly taking our rights to privacy away from us slowly.

Imagine that, a US Marine on a terrorist watch list.

I wonder if I'm on there.

Pretty sure than I am. I'm a known malcontent that has several guns and a long history of revolutionary writing while in public school and speaking on political issues during my time in uniform. Registered to vote Libertarian when I was eighteen and remained until I had to switch to vote for Ron Paul. I'll be switching back after the election in protest after I write in Ron Paul on my ballot in November. I'm also a 9/11 Truther that's going to be at the March in DC next month.

And understand something - there is no one that our "security" agencies trust less right now than out of uniform Marines. Last time the country was this divided and unhappy half to three-quarters of the Corps signed up to fight for the Confederacy.

You're wondering how the NSA can spy on people, look up project Echelon. Back in the seventies every telephone conversation was run through a series of supercomputers spread out across the US listening for keywords. The only reason that we know about it at all is because they likely have something quite a bit better now. Next time that you speak to someone on the phone, take some time out to say hello to Bob the NSA Guy, I'm told from a friend at the FBI that it really annoys them.

Hah, why's that, because the FBI doesn't get any love?

I'll say hi to Bob the NSA guy and Jeff the FBI guy.

haha, my man Jarhead. Love reading your posts.

I'd imagine it annoys them because that's one of the keywords and it creates an unnecessary copy of your convo that someone wastes time going over.

So how does this work for cell phones?
