Is it LAWFUL???

According to the 4th Amendment to the Constitution, NO! NO! NO! NO!

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

The elements needed:

1) Probable Cause

2) Oath or Affirmation

3) Particular Place to be Searched

4) Person or Thing to be seized

5) Warrent Has To Be issued.
----------

The PROBLEM is that the Court has allowed a "Special Needs" provision to gut the 4th Amendment, with "Special Needs" to be determined by the GOVERNMENT with no oversight.

ABUSES are Inevitable!!

And herein lies the problem.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., said he planned to hold another hearing in the wake of the report.

The May audit counted 2,776 incidents in the preceding 12 months of unauthorized collection, storage, access to or distribution of legally protected communications

THINK ABOUT THAT. Isn't that what Watergate was all about; ie stealing information from personnel property?

NSA broke privacy rules 'thousands of times'...

Funds New 'Top Secret' Data Lab...

Dems Angry...

The Obama administration faced a backlash from congressional Democrats on Friday following revelations that the National Security Agency broke privacy rules and overstepped its authority thousands of times since 2008.
The details were reported late Thursday in The Washington Post, based on an audit and other secret documents provided by NSA leaker Edward Snowden. The report challenged claims by President Obama just last week that the NSA was not abusing its authority, and complicated his effort to reassure Americans and Congress that -- with a little more oversight and transparency -- the surveillance programs are nothing to be worried about.

Bondi said that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is making it easier for someone to be hired as a so-called navigator, cutting back on background checks and eliminating a fingerprinting requirement, which could make it easier for a personís private information to fall into the wrong hands.

That's why so many cons voted to keep the domestic spying. They can't think for themselves.

The WATERGATE SCANDAL was predicated on the theft of Personal and Private Information belonging to DNC Chairman Lawrence O'brien.

The theft was NOT about money or other things of monetary value; It was about stolen INFORMATION.

ERGO, how much more of a scandal is this, when this is done tens of thousands of times, maybe more, to US Citizens, by the NSA.

In fact, these intrusions are occuring without a limiting warrent being issued; in most cases.

There is anger on BOTH sides of the political spectrum on this AND Obama is not gonna be able to call this a "PHONEY" Scandal.
