…the tagline here is, of course, “…only I, the pResident of the World has THAT!” With NO legitimate documentation WHATSOEVER about his medical history, school records [save an elementary school form declaring him a Muslim and Indonesian citizen], college records, papers, rosters or even simple proof of American citizenship, this guy has more than a lot of nerve to make a statement like this to American citizens. Of course, that is the key: not being one himself, he has no regard for their rights, their Constitution or their system of government, traditions or culture.
But don’t take it from me–read the entire piece by Liz Blaine at David Horowitz’s NewsReal. It’s enough to make you hurl whatever it is handy at the moment.
In a terrifying nutshell, he and his henchmen, criminals all, are decisively and derisively throwing out our Fourth Amendment rights as recognized by our Constitution,* their specious argument being that:
without a court-ordered warrant, to gain access to cellular provider records documenting the time and location American citizens place cell phone calls. I know you’re thinking, “But what about my Constitutional rights against search and seizure?” Those rights will no longer exist. The Obama administration is advocating that,
“Warrantless tracking is permitted because Americans enjoy no ‘reasonable expectation of privacy’ whereabouts. U.S. Department of Justice lawyers say that ‘a customer’s Fourth Amendment rights are not violated when the phone company reveals to the government its own records’ that show where a mobile device placed and received calls.
But cellular providers record more information than just when and where a call is placed. All cell phones “ping” the closest cell phone towers when not in use, alerting the tower it is within its transmission range, even when it’s turned off. The only way to disconnect a cell phone’s ability to contact the towers is to remove its battery.
Needless to say, it is reasonable to assume that this latest perfidy has amused Himself greatly.
Fourth Amendment, U.S. Constitution:
*The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
