…you can pretty much give up on having any privacy in the United States. In fact, you can pretty much toss out the Fourth Amendment while you’re at it.
If this shit doesn’t give you chills, nothing will.

First Obama signs the NDAA into law giving the military the power to arrest American citizens without charges, or due process of law, and now the Senate is looking to add to that fiasco by allowing law enforcement to read your email, access your internet accounts and social media without a warrant, without any judicial oversight, and without your knowledge.

America has lost its way.

Senate bill rewrite lets feds read your e-mail without warrants
by Declan McCullagh

Proposed law scheduled for a vote next week originally increased Americans’ e-mail privacy. Then law enforcement complained. Now it increases government access to e-mail and other digital files.

A Senate proposal touted as protecting Americans’ e-mail privacy has been quietly rewritten, giving government agencies more surveillance power than they possess under current law.

CNET has learned that Patrick Leahy, the influential Democratic chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee, has dramatically reshaped his legislation in response to law enforcement concerns. A vote on his bill, which now authorizes warrantless access to Americans’ e-mail, is scheduled for next week.

Leahy’s rewritten bill would allow more than 22 agencies — including the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Federal Communications Commission — to access Americans’ e-mail, Google Docs files, Facebook wall posts, and Twitter direct messages without a search warrant. It also would give the FBI and Homeland Security more authority, in some circumstances, to gain full access to Internet accounts without notifying either the owner or a judge.

It’s an abrupt departure from Leahy’s earlier approach, which required police to obtain a search warrant backed by probable cause before they could read the contents of e-mail or other communications. The Vermont Democrat boasted last year that his bill “provides enhanced privacy protections for American consumers by… requiring that the government obtain a search warrant.”


…this time from a judge that says warrantless use of concealed surveillance cameras on private property is OK.
Just keep ignoring it America.
Your rights keep dwindling away on a daily basis.

Court OKs warrantless use of hidden surveillance cameras
By Declan McCullagh

In latest case to test how technological developments alter Americans’ privacy, federal court sides with Justice Department on police use of concealed surveillance cameras on private property.

Police are allowed in some circumstances to install hidden surveillance cameras on private property without obtaining a search warrant, a federal judge said yesterday.

CNET has learned that U.S. District Judge William Griesbach ruled that it was reasonable for Drug Enforcement Administration agents to enter rural property without permission — and without a warrant — to install multiple “covert digital surveillance cameras” in hopes of uncovering evidence that 30 to 40 marijuana plants were being grown.

This is the latest case to highlight how advances in technology are causing the legal system to rethink how Americans’ privacy rights are protected by law. In January, the Supreme Court rejected warrantless GPS tracking after previously rejecting warrantless thermal imaging, but it has not yet ruled on warrantless cell phone tracking or warrantless use of surveillance cameras placed on private property without permission.

Yesterday Griesbach adopted a recommendation by U.S. Magistrate Judge William Callahan dated October 9. That recommendation said that the DEA’s warrantless surveillance did not violate the Fourth Amendment, which prohibits unreasonable searches and requires that warrants describe the place that’s being searched.

“The Supreme Court has upheld the use of technology as a substitute for ordinary police surveillance,” Callahan wrote.


…because he criticized the government. Isn’t this the shit that communists do? Why yes, yes it is.

Well, the police say he wasn’t arrested. If he wasn’t arrested, then why was he lead away in handcuffs and then taken to a psychiatric facility? If that isn’t being arrested, then WTF is it?

The government has too much power if this is allowed in this country.

Time to get the torches and pitchforks.

Outcry after military veteran detained for anti-government Facebook posts

A former Marine involuntarily detained for psychiatric evaluation for posting strident anti-government messages on Facebook has received an outpouring of support from people who say authorities are trampling on his First Amendment rights.

Brandon J. Raub, 26, has been in custody since FBI, Secret Service agents and police in Virginia’s Chesterfield County questioned him Thursday evening about what they said were ominous posts talking about a coming revolution. In one message earlier this month according to authorities, Raub wrote: “Sharpen my axe; I’m here to sever heads.”

Police — acting under a state law that allows emergency, temporary psychiatric commitments upon the recommendation of a mental health professional — took Raub to the John Randolph Medical Center in Hopewell. He was not charged with any crime.


…of the next war.

I went over to Bob Owens’ place and had a good read.

I think you should too. It kind of puts things in perspective when you think about whether, or not we would have to resort to fighting the government.
Bob is making a counter-point to another person’s thinking that every American would just give up their guns when the government finally says to do so.

Minutemen and the next war

I ran across an interesting article by one Jim Karger (via TTAG) this morning, that claims When They Come For Your Guns, You Will Turn Them Over:

If the federal government decides to disarm the public, and when the increasingly-militarized rolls down your street after a not-so-subtle request that you kindly turn over your firearms and ammunition “for the common good,” it will be nothing less than suicide by cop to do anything other than what you are told.

The militarization of US police forces is ongoing and escalating. Many cities and towns now own tanks, armed personnel carriers, even attack helicopters, and almost all are outfitted with military weapons not available to the general public.


…and well in NY.
Congratulations New Yorkers! You’re now under surveillance. Everywhere you go, the NYPD can see what you’re doing, and can now track you like the lapdogs you are.

Couldn’t happen to a finer city!

It always amazes me how liberal morons espouse freedom and then turn around and do this shit. Police state much?

NYPD Unveils Crime- And Terror-Fighting ‘Domain Awareness System’

Mayor: State-Of-The-Art Venture With Microsoft Puts Police ‘In The Next Century’

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A dramatic new way to track criminals and potential terrorists was unveiled Wednesday by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly.

It melds cameras, computers and data bases capable of nabbing bad guys before they even know they’re under suspicion.


This is travesty. A nation that treats it’s Soldiers in this manner doesn’t deserve to be a nation. There are a couple things wrong with this in regards to the Constitution alone, never mind simple common sense.

First there’s the issue of the Second Amendment. It is constantly being violated by the District of Columbia, in that they do everything in their illegal power to confiscate, or prevent gun ownership. And I thought California was bad.

Then there’s the issue of the Fourth Amendment. Yeah, the one that states: “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 MPD violated this one straight up.

If it were me they did this to, they’d put my name over the MPD HQ when I was done with them.

This is a series of articles on this by Emily Miller, here’s the first:

MILLER: Iraq vet brutalized over guns in D.C.

The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) seems to have it out for our military. The department is using the city’s pointless firearm registration mandate to harass, arrest and jail servicemen.

Army 1st Sergeant Matthew Corrigan was woken in the middle of the night, forced out of his home, arrested, had his home ransacked, had his guns seized and was thrown in jail — where he was lost in the prison system for two weeks — all because the District refuses to recognize the meaning of the Second Amendment. This week, the city dropped all charges against Sgt. Corrigan, but the damage done to this reservist cannot be so easily erased.

This story will describe how Sgt. Corrigan went from sleeping at home at night to arrested. Subsequent installments of the series will cover the home raid without a warrant, the long-term imprisonment and the coverup by MPD.


There’s a link to the next one in the series. There are three at the moment.

MILLER: SWAT rampage destroys Iraq vet’s home over guns

MILLER: Iraq vet jailed two weeks for guns

I’d sue these douche bags until my name was placed over city hall if they did this shit to me.

In case you didn’t know, or are just a liberal moron, here’s what the 4th amendment states:

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.

All of that was violated with this one incident. Police state anyone?

Police Stop, Handcuff Every Adult at Intersection in Search for Bank Robber

Police in Aurora, Colo., searching for suspected bank robbers stopped every car at an intersection, handcuffed all the adults and searched the cars, one of which they believed was carrying the suspect.

Police said they had received what they called a “reliable” tip that the culprit in an armed robbery at a Wells Fargo bank committed earlier was stopped at the red light.

“We didn’t have a description, didn’t know race or gender or anything, so a split-second decision was made to stop all the cars at that intersection, and search for the armed robber,” Aurora police Officer Frank Fania told ABC News.

Officers barricaded the area, halting 19 cars.

“Cops came in from every direction and just threw their car in front of my car,” Sonya Romero, one of the drivers who was handcuffed, told ABC News affiliate KMGH-TV in Denver.

From there, the police went from car to car, removing the passengers and handcuffing the adults.

This is criminal behavior by a government entity that thinks it is itself above the law. Mr. Kim should attempt to sue the the police department and the district attorney for theft of personal property and violating his civil rights.

Keep the pressure up on these lawless fucks, or you will lose all your rights.

The one and only thing you should ever say to a cop is “I want a lawyer.” Anything else is suicide.

If you are asked if they can search your car, say no. If they ask why, say no. They have to have probable cause to search your vehicle. If they had it, they wouldn’t ask.

Don’t fuck yourself over. LAWYER UP!

MILLER: Injured vet’s guns stolen by D.C.

By Emily Miller

After being injured on his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, Lt. Augustine Kim spent the night in a D.C. jail for possessing unregistered guns.

Mr. Kim was transporting his firearms from his parents’ house in New Jersey to South Carolina when he stopped at Walter Reed in Washington for a medical appointment in the summer of 2010.

After being pulled over, handcuffed, arrested, thrown in jail overnight, his guns were confiscated by the city.

In the end, the platoon leader felt forced to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge, which was later dismissed, but the District still refuses to return to him $10,000 worth of firearms and parts. The national guardsman will deploy to Kosovo this summer. The city should return his property before he leaves to serve our nation overseas for the third time.

This is so prevalent in the MFM that it needs to be posted and rebutted.

It is NOT illegal to film cops! Never has been.

Now the First Circuit has ruled that to be the case. It is NOT illegal to film cops.

Cops have been know to harass people that are filming them and trying to convince them that it is illegal to film them. That is either willful ignorance, or just a straight out lie. I tend to lean towards the latter.

Appeals Court Rules It Is Not Illegal To Film Police

Paul Joseph Watson

Americans still being arrested for recording cops as a consequence of mass hoax

Despite the mass hoax still being promulgated by both the mainstream media and local authorities across America, the First Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that it is not illegal for citizens to videotape police officers when they are on public duty.

“The filming of government officials while on duty is protected by the First Amendment, said the Court,” reports Daily Tech.

“The filming of government officials engaged in their duties in a public place, including police officers performing their responsibilities, fits comfortably within these principles [of protected First Amendment activity].,” said the Court. “Gathering information about government officials in a form that can readily be disseminated to others serves a cardinal First Amendment interest in protecting and promoting the free discussion of governmental affairs,” stated the ruling, adding that this has been the case all along, and that the right to film police officers is not just restricted to the press.


This is an example of the police overstepping their bounds. These asshole are breaking into a man’s home, then shooting his dogs, and for what you might ask?

Marijuana. Just enough to get a misdemeanor charge at best.

I am afraid, if the police came to my house by mistake, then in all likelihood, there would be at least one dead cop, probably more, and my ass would be dead too.Someone tries breaking into my house in the middle of the night, I get up with my pistol in hand racked and stacked, booger hook on the bang switch.

Because they don’t get their fucking intel right, a family is terrorized by these assholes and their pets are shot.
