Wow. They finally woke up.

Every single member of House votes to require warrants to access all emails

The House voted 419-0 on a bill requiring law enforcement to obtain a warrant to look through Americans’ emails, no matter how old they are. The bill would update a 30-year-old law that doesn’t require a warrant for emails older than 180 days.

A blow against the STASI Orwellian nightmare state?

Most of them are criminals, to be fair.

The Feds granted themselves the right to put up phony cell phone towers to steal your data at will. Have audacity to claim it’s legal. The 4th Amendment dies.

Feds’ position on decoy cell-site towers continues anti-privacy theme.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is taking the position that court warrants are not required when deploying cell-site simulators in public places. Nicknamed “stingrays,” the devices are decoy cell towers that capture locations and identities of mobile phone users and can intercept calls and texts.

4TH AMENDMENT

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects,[a] 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.

I’ve been writing about this stuff for decades, and readers here should already know this stuff.  Hopefully they’re God damned mad about it and not going to take it anymore.

There’s a reason I cite George Orwell over and over again.

Washington Post:

U.S., British intelligence mining data from nine U.S. Internet companies in broad secret program

“The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio and video chats, photographs, e-mails, documents, and connection logs that enable analysts to track foreign targets, according to a top-secret document obtained by The Washington Post.”

FBI Probes Tsarnaev’s Contacts in Chechen Community

17 May 2013

The Moscow Times

FBI investigators have searched the home of a former Chechen separatist in Manchester, New Hampshire, after establishing that a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing met with him weeks before the terrorist attack that killed three and wounded 260 people last month.

Manchester police confirmed to Voice of America that Musa Khadzhimuradov’s home had been searched and that FBI agents were studying the content of hard drives on his computers.

Khadzhimuradov said secret service agents visited his home on Tuesday with a search warrant and took him to a local FBI office, where he gave samples of his DNA as well as fingerprints, RIA Novosti reported.

According to the FBI, bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev bought fireworks, which he allegedly used to make explosive devices for the bombing, in the town of Seabrook, which is located an hour’s drive from Manchester.

Tsarnaev also used to visit a shooting club in Manchester several blocks from Khadzhimuradov’s home, where he bought weapons and ammunition, the FBI said.Khadzhimuradov told U.S. investigators that he first met Tsarnaev in 2006 at an annual meeting of Boston’s Chechen community and that he had been in contact with him ever since.

Khadzhimuradov came to the U.S. in 2004 as a refugee. His lower body is paralyzed as a result of an injury received in Chechnya in 2001, where he was a personal bodyguard of separatist leader Akhmed Zakayev, currently living in exile in London.

UPDATE

Spelling is “Musa Khadzhimuratov” in US news reports.  Of which there are only a handful.

Egypt Issues Arrest Warrant For Jon Stewart

The Egyptian government has issued an arrest warrant for American comedian Jon Stewart, accusing him of blasphemy and fomenting “anti-Egyptian” sentiment.

There’s that “blasphemy” charge again. Isn’t theocracy grand?

Now I consider Stewart a sold out little shit and a propagandist for the empire, but arrest warrants for “blasphemy?” Really?

“According to a statement issued by Minister of Justice Ahmed Mekki, Stewart will also be charged with “contributing to the delinquency of an Egyptian” for his role in inspiring Youssef to challenge the Islamist regime.”

“Mr. Stewart may think he’s funny. But in reality he is destroying the moral fiber of Egypt with his numerous references to penises and openly flamboyant homosexuals like Larry Craig, Marcus Bachmann, and Lindsey Graham.”
