America doesnt stand for anything anymore,and when you stand for nothing,its easy to get walked on.Seems to me that America is ripe for a person with strong views,a person with easy solutions.America now,is where Germany was in the nineteen thirties.

NEVER said "illegal". A Democrat extended the "snooping" so to speak. A Republican had nothing to do with it. Here again, you show your bias. BTW, do not know how to spell "Republican"? Oh yeah, what is that.....bias.

My only concern is that after reading some of these posts is how and why did Americans become so damn dumb? Pease people stop drooling like a bunch of idiots and stop mouthing off withot knowledge first. This why our rights are going out the window....STUPID people have allowed it to happen. When you choose to put more stock in American Idol or other such bull shit instead of paying attention to things that matter....well,,you get what you deserve for your ignorance.

The president can sign but the Senate must ratify. Not likely to happen.

"Dumb" in what way? "Drooling" over what? Not all of us watch "American Idol". Your generic rant is falling on deaf ears.

Bias? The facts are bias? The snooping began in late 2002. Who was president then? The extensions of the patriot act were presented to the president for signing by CONGRESS. The US Senate is controlled by democrats by a narrow margin. The US House is controlled by republikans with a large margin. Both houses passed the extensions of the patriot act and presented that to the president for his signature.
Congress is called the legislative branch BECAUSE THEY WRITE THE LAWS. The president and his cabinet are part of the ADMINISTRATIVE BRANCH BECAUSE THEY ADMINISTRATE THE LAWS PASSED BY CONGRESS.
The courts are called the JUDICIAL BRANCH BECAUSE THEY ABJUDICATE THE LAWS PASSED BY CONGRESS.

Some heard it, but it went over the heads of others and never reached their ears. Seems like a lot goes entirely over their heads. Like being unable to understand that CONGRESS writes the laws. That includes laws allowing spying on Americans. Beckerheads!!

READ THE ACT! THEN READ THE EXTENSIONS. Why were ONLY the "snooping" extensions signed? Who had "majority" control of the"administrative branch"? BTW, do you know how to spell Republican?

"Minutes before a midnight deadline, President Barack Obama signed into law a four-year extension of post-Sept. 11 powers to search records and conduct roving wiretaps in pursuit of terrorists.

“It’s an important tool for us to continue dealing with an ongoing terrorist threat,” Obama said Friday after a meeting with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

With Obama in France, the White House said the president used an autopen machine that holds a pen and signs his actual signature. It is only used with proper authorization of the president." " Two senators — two Democratic senators — are asking the Obama administration to disclose surveillance powers under the Patriot Act, saying citizens would be “stunned” to learn what the government says it can do.

More on the secrecy of the Patriot Act.

Democrats ran on a platform of change. Instead, they’ve taken the worst aspects of the big-government Bush era and expanded it beyond even Bush.

You get what you vote for."

"Reuters:

German outrage over a U.S. Internet spying program has broken out ahead of a visit by Barack Obama, with ministers demanding the president provide a full explanation when he lands in Berlin next week and one official likening the tactics to those of the East German Stasi.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman has said she will raise the issue with Obama in talks next Wednesday, potentially casting a cloud over a visit that was designed to celebrate U.S.-German ties on the 50th anniversary John F. Kennedy’s famous “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech.

Government surveillance is an extremely sensitive topic in Germany, where memories of the dreaded Stasi secret police and its extensive network of informants are still fresh in the minds of many citizens."

Looks like the President will be answering to more than the US citizens on "snooping" in the name of "National Security".

Think the Senate cares?

"A recent briefing by senior intelligence officials on surveillance programs failed to attract even half of the Senate, showing the lack of enthusiasm in Congress for learning about classified security programs

Many senators elected to leave Washington early Thursday afternoon instead of attending a briefing with James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, Keith Alexander, the head of the National Security Agency (NSA), and other officials.

The Senate held its last vote of the week a little after noon on Thursday, and many lawmakers were eager to take advantage of the short day and head back to their home states for Father’s Day weekend.

Only 47 of 100 senators attended the 2:30 briefing, leaving dozens of chairs in the secure meeting room empty as Clapper, Alexander and other senior officials told lawmakers about classified programs to monitor millions of telephone calls and broad swaths of Internet activity. The room on the lower level of the Capitol Visitor Center is large enough to fit the entire Senate membership, according to a Senate aide."

Guess not.

300 Marines, Already Deployed To Jordan, To Set Up Shipments Of Arms To Syria

Saturday, June 15, 2013
ALEPPO_2590873c

Can get Marines to Jordan overnight, but can’t respond to our people fighting for their lives in Benghazi.

The “intense discussions” followed the US announcement on Thursday that it will increase military support to opposition fighters after Western intelligence agencies confirmed that the Syrian regime had crossed a “red line” by using chemical weapons.
“We will be discussing that response urgently with the United States, France and other countries, including at the G8,” said William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, calling for “a strong, determined and coordinated response from the international community”.

The sudden intensification of conflict on the ground, which saw the rebels lose the strategic city of Qusayr a week ago, sets up a renewed diplomatic confrontation between Russia and the West at next week’s G8 summit in Northern Ireland.

Added urgency was provided by the disclosure from David Cameron that rebel groups affiliated to al-Qaeda “have attempted to acquire” chemical weapons for use in Syria, citing briefings from British intelligence.

Another war to involved and support?
