Government will pay for you abortions and contraceptives baby, but in return, well, in return we want the right to expand our ability to snoop on you with more ease. And don’t worry, when we can find anything and everything out about you, we will not abuse any of that at all. Only republicans, if you are crazy enough to elect them, will abuse this!
(Reuters) – The U.S. Congress should pass a law to give investigators freer access to certain cellphone records, an Obama administration official said on Thursday, in remarks that raised concern among advocates of civil liberties and privacy.
Jason Weinstein, a deputy assistant attorney general in the Justice Department’s criminal division, argued that requirements for warrants at early stages of investigations would “cripple” prosecutors and law enforcement.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled this year that a warrant was needed to put a GPS satellite tracking device on a suspect’s vehicle, prompting questions about other instances where probable-cause warrants should be needed to obtain information in the rapidly changing world of mobile devices.
Besides, it is not like these assholes that want to avoid warrants, after spending about 8 years accusing the last administration of wanting to do that on the flimsiest of contrived conspiratorial bullshit, because they firmly believed that former administration wanted to violate people’s basic rights, would ever abuse any power it got itself, right? We have nothing crazy like that ever going down. Using the IRS to investigate Tea Party opponents? NEVAH! It’s not like this administration seems to believe or imply that these Tea Partiers are terrorists or something. Biden certainly doesn’t speak for them. And it’s not as if this administration has an enemies list or would resort to using the power of big government to target those supporting their opposition.
Note that not a single of the links I used to illustrate how corrupt and vile Team Obama is, ready to abuse their power and office at the drop of a hat for political and power gain, comes from the LSM. That’s not a coincidence. The LSM has mostly ignored, or actually when forced to report on them, defended these practices. Can you imagine them doing the same if the guy being discussed was GWB? Me neither. But hey, Bush was the guy that wanted to steal our freedoms because he, like this new asshole Romney trying to steal the emperor’s crown, do not want to give people free shit paid by other people.
