Blame the Deep State.
Blame Obama administration holdovers.
Blame an overzealous spy community.
Whatever the reason, your right to privacy is being threatened like never before.
The NSA, CIA and other intelligence agencies of the United States are delving into your privacy — with FISA warrants, allowing for abusive spying on Americans.
It is not legal and is an abuse of power.
Lately the entire surveillance apparatus is being weaponized to profit one political party over another.
This is dangerous and must be stopped.
It’s all done under the shady and secretive FISA Court, which has overreached its bounds of allowing surveillance against “foreign spies inside the U.S.”
So, why are Americans being spied on? Why are their names being unmasked and leaked to the press to hurt one political party and help another?
TELL CONGRESS NOT TO RENEW FISA
Surprisingly, the White House is going along with renewal of the FISA law, saying it is needed to protect national security.
The law is due to expire on Dec. 31.
Republicans and Democrats, fearing the continued eavesdropping on Americans, are in favor of curtailing FISA.
Within FISA is Section 702, which allows the collection of your data from Google, Facebook and other social media companies if a foreign target is under surveillance.
But as Edward Snowden noted in 2013 when he blew the whistle on such collection data, everyday Americans had their information corralled.
President Trump was ridiculed and laughed at when in March he Tweeted:
“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”
Nobody’s laughing now.
More revelations confirm Trump Towers was under FBI surveillance on orders from political operatives in the Obama administration.
CNN and media mocked Trump’s claim that his campaign was wiretapped. They called it a lie.
Now CNN says it’s true … but ignore the unconstitutional violation of Trump’s Fourth Amendment rights, and instead keep on talking about Russia.
Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was wiretapped via a secret court order before the election as an outgrowth of his relationship with Viktor Yanukovych (former president of the Ukraine) and Manafort’s failure to register as a foreign agent.
This was all done through a FISA Court warrant, which was illegally done and an affront to the privacy guarantees to U.S. citizens under our Constitution.
And along the way, Deep State operatives unmasked names and conversations of political concern … including many innocent people.
HOW A FISA COURT WARRANT WORKS
To understand the severe implications and misuse of a FISA warrant, we need to examine how it works.
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, commonly referred to as the “FISA Court,” is a secret tribunal with legal authority to grant (or deny) warrants for electronic surveillance against would-be spies or terrorists.
The court — made up of 11 federal judges, serving 7-year terms and selected by the chief justice of the Supreme Court — meets in private, sometimes in the middle of the night. FISA targets are highly classified.
It oversees requests for surveillance warrants against foreign spies in the United States or foreigners overseas.
Did you get that? Foreign spies or foreigners overseas, not members of the opposing political party right before an election!
But that is exactly what’s happened in the case of Paul Manafort. The wiretapped continued long after the election was over.
But the media spin is on Manafort being in trouble, NOT on the illegality of spying and surveillance for political means.
We don’t know if Manafort is innocent or guilty.
But we do know the wiretapping and spying was:
- Politically motivated
- Unconstitutional and illegal
- A danger to a free society
Our Constitutional-guaranteed privacy is being bulldozed.
