There’s a Secret Patriot Act, Senator Says

Quote:"You think you understand how the Patriot Act allows the government to spy on its citizens. Sen. Ron Wyden says it’s worse than you know.

One prominent Patriot-watcher asserts that the secret interpretation empowers the government to deploy ”dragnets” for massive amounts of information on private citizens; the government portrays its data-collection efforts much differently.

We’re getting to a gap between what the public thinks the law says and what the American government secretly thinks the law says, when you’ve got that kind of a gap, you’re going to have a problem on your hands.”

What exactly does Wyden mean by that? As a member of the intelligence committee, he laments that he can’t precisely explain without disclosing classified information. But one component of the Patriot Act in particular gives him immense pause: the so-called “business-records provision,” which empowers the FBI to get businesses, medical offices, banks and other organizations to turn over any “tangible things” it deems relevant to a security investigation.

“It is fair to say that the business-records provision is a part of the Patriot Act that I am extremely interested in reforming,” Wyden says. “I know a fair amount about how it’s interpreted, and I am going to keep pushing, as I have, to get more information about how the Patriot Act is being interpreted declassified. I think the public has a right to public debate about it.”


the government is relying on secret interpretations of what the law says without telling the public what those interpretations are. wonderful, we wont know if we've broken a law till we wake up in prison.

A basic modus operandi of the NWO/global elite/oligarchy/

Lots of that type of thing going on in the EU too.
Heck - from the Lisbon Treaty (or whaddafuckever
they call our constitution nowadays) itself working the
same way...

...all the way down to the public not being in touch with legal
jargon, which is the core principle of "judicial systems".
Always was.

Sometimes, on my strong days, I look forward to babylon
busting me for ganja the next time doobie.gif
It feels so - god - damn - good!!! to tell the Honourable and
Distinguished Members of the Court a Few Fucking Truths yay.gif
Even if they get angry and make it expensive for ya.

"Babylon" wants to make examples of the young and inexperienced, because they can't really defend themselves. On the other hand AS, you can do and say things that are a real thorn in the side of the beast, trust me they are going to ignore you at all costs.

That's the MO here, control through ignorance and it starts at the the top of the shit pyramid.

These piss poor excuses for authority figures and the mentally challenged smallville, small minded shit they spout in the newspapers prove beyond a shadow of a doubt they are so fucking disconnected with reality they could never function on a level of anything other than a big fish in a very very small pond.

I don't think Laws have ever stopped the alphabet agencies from invading peoples privacy.
