Obama last week gave a speech as to what his intent was to revamp the NRS. Obama stressed that bulk phone records of American citizens should be stored outside the government. He said this would reduce the risk of the records being abused. Some other agency will be holding the phone records, so what is that suppose to do. The thing is that American’s phone records will still be kept.
I see Obama is insulting the intelligence of the American people once again. He said that there should be a balance struck between our liberties and national security such as spying. (spying on us, the American people.) I will hold firm that to keep records of millions of people just in case they might be needed in a case is asinine. This is definitely going against the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.
Obama said that there must be a Judges advance approval before agencies can examine some ones data. Who is Obama kidding. This requirement is already on the books that a Judge must sign off. Do you recall the James Rosen scandal who works for Fox News where Attorney General Eric Holder gave his approval to spy on him. They had to go through a Judge and there were two Judges who turned it down before a third one approved. They just kept on bouncing around judges until the right one came along. Why would that change now? As you can see going through a Judge is a bunch of crap, from the example I just gave you it can be beat.
The final clincher is Obama is instructing Attorney General Eric Holder to find a solution within 60 days. This is the same Eric Holder who has not provided documents in regard to the Fast and Furious scandal to Congressional Committees by exercising an executive privilege order to keep said documents away from Congress. Obama, who has had no respect for the US Constitution is giving his patsy Eric Holder the responsibility of finding a solution to the bulk phone records. Don’t make me laugh. The solution is to stop collecting our personal records, period.
