WSJ:

“The NSA is allowed to keep Americans’ information and turn it over to the FBI if it is ‘reasonably believed to contain significant foreign intelligence information,’ ‘evidence of a crime’ or information about communications security vulnerabilities, the documents say. Americans’ communications also can be kept if they are encrypted, according to the documents.”

They have used a deliberate loophole that all communications with foreigners and foreign websites are open season and can be monitored in direct violation of the US Constitution.

“When conducting 702 FISA surveillance, the only information NSA obtains results from the use of specific identifiers (for example email addresses and telephone numbers) used by non-U.S. persons overseas who are believed to possess or receive foreign intelligence information.”

“Intelligence” information is any information.  There is no meaning to the term “intelligence” as used here.  It can be anything.  This is a blanket excuse for running a police state, and is directly in violation of the Constitution when Americans’ personal communications are violated.  Where does it say in the US Constitution – the Supreme Law of the Land – that Americans’ personal communications with any foreigner are to be searched and stored and used against them?

“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.”

-The 4th Amendment (still our Law until further notice)

Beyond this latest NSA admission of widespread tyranny, a variety that the nation’s founders would have revolted over, we know that these so-called “restrictions” are all bullshit.  These are stories to tell little people, underlings, yes-men.

Edward Snowden and Russell Tice exposed the unrestrained and politically-motivated use of this surveillance state.  This is an abomination, and if this government isn’t impeached and jailed, America is over.  Freedom is dead.

NSA / Booz Allen Hamilton whistleblower Edward Snowden:

“Any analyst at any time can target anyone.  …I sitting at my desk certainly had the authorities to wiretap anyone, from YOU or your accountant to a federal judge to even the president if I had a personal email.”

NSA Satellite Analyst Russell Tice:

“[NSA] went after lawyers and law firms… They went after judges. One of the judges is now sitting on the Supreme Court that I had his wiretap information in my hand… They went after State Department officials. They went after people in the executive service that were part of the White House — their own people.”

What really goes on and what the government tells the proles are two entirely different things.
