Senate Authorizes Insane Warrantless Surveillance Program

Democracy is just a rat cage.

It’s like that Smashing Pumpkins song.


The U.S. Senate voted late on Friday night to approve the reauthorization of a controversial surveillance program, narrowly missing the midnight expiration of the program, and the White House said President Joe Biden would swiftly sign it.

The reauthorization secures what supporters call a key element of U.S. foreign intelligence gathering.

Democrats and Republicans came together and did the right thing for our country safety,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said.

Yeah, Chuck Schumer, the baby-killing Jew, is just very concerned about the safety of Americans.

If you believe that, I’ve got a bridge I want to sell you. In Baltimore.

FISA has attracted criticism from both Republican and Democratic lawmakers, who argue it violates Americans’ constitutional right to privacy. The bill was blocked three times in the past five months by House Republicans bucking their party, before passing last week by a 273-147 vote when its duration was shortened from five years to two years.

Although the right to privacy is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, foreign nationals’ data gathered by the program often includes communications with Americans, and can be mined by domestic law enforcement bodies such as the FBI without a warrant.

This mention of the “foreign national” is stupid, because it’s anyone who has talked to a foreign national, or anyone who has talked to anyone who has talked to a foreign national. They just open up your email or your apps, and read everything. It’s actually a limitless domestic spying program, to collect all private communications, which goes almost as far as the “secret” and “illegal” NSA programs.
