The Patriot Act signed into law by Bush in 2001 gave the government the right to search telephone, e-mail, and financial records without a court order, and the right to to business records, including library and financial records. So why the shock and surprise?

Obama has expanded the abuses under the Patriot Act according to the ACLU. See below.

Fascism is alive and well in the Obama White House.

ACLU Report: Obama administration expands domestic spying

By Eric London
1 October 2012

Under the Obama administration, there has been a 60 percent increase in warrantless electronic surveillance by the Department of Justice, according to a report Thursday by the American Civil Liberties Union. According to the report, the DoJ monitored 37,616 phones in 2011 alone.

“The report shows a dramatic increase in the use of these surveillance tools…[m]ore people were subjected to pen register and trap and trace surveillance in the past two years than in the entire previous decade,” the ACLU explains, making reference to two tactics used by the Department of Justice (DoJ) to monitor and track phone calls, email messages, and social networking website use.

The ACLU report serves as a further indictment of Obama administration, which came to power in 2008 by riding a wave of popular hatred of the Bush administration’s expansion of police state measures. The Obama administration has not only kept Bush’s domestic spying programs intact—it has also greatly enlarged them.

It is worth noting at the outset that the ACLU report only takes into account surveillance figures obtained from the Justice Department. Given the absence of figures from the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Secret Service, and state and local police forces, the ACLU states that “the reports likely reveal only a small portion of the use of this surveillance power.”

During the same time period, the DoJ increased its tracking of email and social networking data by 361 percent. Though tracking email and social networking is still much rarer than phone tracking, the exponential increase seen over the past two years likely foreshadows further expansion.

Maybe, if a few of you moron guns nuts quit threatening the man, he'd have less to monitor ???

Pretty funny, the "stats" are all even numbers...

So, now Obama is responsible for every police station ???

"....police departments around the country large and small engage in cell phone location tracking."

Funny, there weren't any complaints, when they used cell phones to track the Boston terrorists....
