Sign The Petition The NSA Fears

Actually, I don’t know that the NSA fears this petition. I’m sure they view it as little more than a nuisance. But at least it’s something. Here’s the National Journal: The suit, Paul says, is because Obama “has publicly refused to stop a clear and continuing violation of the Fourth Amendment. The Bill of Rights protects all citizens from general warrants. I expect this case to go all the way to the Supreme Court and I predict the American people will win.” The Kentucky Republican is Read more […]

Google AutoCorrects Man’s Search Query; Government Targets Him In Elaborate Surveillance Campaign

It’s difficult to determine if these accounts are truly accurate, because all we have is one man’s testimony recounted in a lawsuit that he and his lawyer have filed against the feds to the tune of $60 million.
