Parallel Reconstruction

Nevertheless, the NSA’s agents and lawyers felt it necessary to concoct this groundless, disingenuous and fictional legal distinction in order to persuade the FISA court that it is legally acceptable to permit untethered spying so long as the fruits of that spying are not used in criminal prosecutions. Curiously and naively, judges of the FISA court bought that argument.

So, what happens when the spying uncovers ordinary criminal behavior unrelated to national security? In order to keep its hands clean, so to speak, the NSA sends that evidence to the DOJ, whose lawyers and agents in cahoots with the NSA then concoct an explanation as to how the DOJ came upon the evidence. Of course, that explanation curiously and carefully omits the mention of domestic spying. DOJ lawyers know that if the beginning of the process of obtaining evidence is found to be unconstitutional, then the evidence itself can be useless in court.

This is what lawyers and judges call the “fruit of the poisonous tree.”

*** end quote ***

This is deceptive, unlawful and unconstitutional behavior by the Executive Branch.

It undermines the “Rule of Law”.

And the fact that it was done by BOTH the R Bush and the D Obama demonstrates that there is little difference between the D’s and the R’s.

At the very least, there should be dismissals and pardons for ALL defendants who were unfairly convicted. 

Argh!

RANT: Ebolaphobia is perfect for Gooferment purposes

OPINION
Ebola outbreak: Why Obama is allowing Ebolaphobia to spread
By Dr. Keith Ablow
Published October 09, 2014
FoxNews.com

*** begin quote ***

Adults admit to anxiety about whether the illness could strike many more people here, and children have confided to me that they are terrified of Ebola. And what is being said is only the obvious part of the psychological virus (call it “Ebolophobia”) that is spreading; I would venture that millions of people are already unconsciously spending mental energy to suppress their worries that the disease could infect them or those they love.

Part of the preventive health strategy to help contain this psychological virus should be a reliable flow of information and bold policy from the Obama administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But, already, their response lacks the necessary element of steady stewardship. And that’s because of President Obama’s continuing reticence to put America first.

*** end quote ***

Rahm’s rule: “Never let a good crisis go to waste!”

It distracts the Sheeple and makes them think they need the Gooferment to “protect” them.

Argh!

If I was “King” like BHO44, then:

* Travel ban;

* Fire up the CDC for a daily national announcement;

* Fire up the FDA for an fast track plan for drugs;

* Put DoD on the Southern Border problem;

* Nuke the whole Homeland Security organization; and

* Put Biden in charge of the “Ebola” effort.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: The only winning move is not to play

Mr President, the Less you do the Better
By Eric Margolis
September 6, 2014

*** begin quote ***

Washington DC – “We’ve got to stop ISIS… al-Qaida… Syria’sAssad… Hamas… Hezbollah… Taliban…

Shebab…the wicked Ruskis in Ukraine…those Yemeni Houthis…Iran…Sudan…Islamists in Libya and Mali…Boko Haram in Nigeria… the Red Chinese in Asia. Oh yes, and defend Latvia and fight the Lord’s Army in Uganda.

*** and ***

To quote Frederick the Great, “he who defends everything, defends nothing.” To which we may add, he who spends on wars everywhere, ends up broke. And he who ignores domestic needs for the sake of imperial glory abroad is cruising for a bruising.

The American Imperium can no longer enforce the international status quo that had given it immense power and wealth since 1945. The Hapsburg Emperor Charles V and poor Louis XVI faced the same problem.

*** and ***

As they say at the Betty Ford Clinic for drug and alcohol addicts, “just say no.” Or, if Americans really want more jolly little wars around the globe, then raise taxes to pay for them instead of hiding their cost in the national debt.

Americans now face two conflicts in places they can’t even find on the map.

*** end quote ***

From the movie WarGames (1983):  “A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?”

Maybe BHO44 was displaying a flash of unexpected brilliance when he blurted out “ … we don’t have a strategy …”?

At some point, “We, The Sheeple” must wake up and take charge of our Gooferment!

POLITICAL: The situation at the border IS a national disgrace

THE SHAME OF IT ALL
Posted on July 11, 2014 by keywestlou

*** begin quote ***

ABC News ran photographs on the internet yesterday of some of the children who have come over the border into Texas. The 52,000.

Here is what I saw.

Children sleeping on bathroom floors, in orderly fashion next to each other. More sleeping on shower floors. Not in orderly fashion. On top of each other in many instances. The floor in each room reported to be concrete. Nothing between the kids’ bodies and the concrete. Some standing crowded almost like sardines in what was described as a holding room.

The news report stated the areas where the children were held were fenced in by chain link and barbed wire. It was further reported that the children are only allowed 30 minutes outside each day to play.

ABC’s report further indicated that many of the children still appear dehydrated and hungry. The report also stated some of the children were sick and could not eat.

Is this how we treat children in the United States? Regardless of how they arrived here?

This is not a Republican/Democrat thing. This is a humanitarian crisis. Political differences and hatreds should be set aside. We are duty and conscience bound to react. To do the right thing. To be God like. To help the children.

*** end quote ***

The situation at the border IS a national disgrace.

Let’s not forget the reason this situation was created — politics.

The D’s figure to remake America into a Socialist Paradise by embarrassing the R’s in front of Hispanic voters. Add to that that all the illegal aliens will vote D is the cherry on the Sunday.

And it distracts from the bad economy, the foreign policy disasters, and the Obamacare disaster. Never mind concealing the IRS scandal and the VA débâcle.

As a Voluntaryist type of little L libertarian, America needs good people to come work and assimilate. The current immigration disaster is failure to have such policy.

A plague on all their houses for the mess that they have made.

Illegal Alien With 7 Kids Got Food Stamps, Housing & Social Security – for 20 Years (Video)
by Top Right News on January 18, 2014 in amnesty, Border Security, Economy, GOP, Immigration, Obama, Politics

*** begin quote ***

Illegal alien and mother of seven, Florida resident Marita Nelson, receives $240 in food stamps, monthly medications, $700 in Social Security and a housing allowance.

And she has been receiving government assistance for over 20 YEARS – ever since she illegally entered the U.S. by swimming the Rio Grande.

*** end quote ***

If this is true, then The Sheeple are fools.

This is unacceptable!

Why should the producers subsidize the moochers?

POLITICAL: the “Bystander President” seems appropriate

‘BLINDSIDED’ PRESIDENT: OBAMA’S LOOSE GRIP ON THE REINS OF STATE
by SCOT KENDALL 1 Jan 2014 

*** begin quote ***

2013 was anything but a banner year for President Obama.

A peppering of failures and scandals marked the first year of the second term of the “most transparent administration in history.” These scandals came in a variety of shapes and sizes, but they all shared one prominent feature.

That is the amount of knowledge Obama claimed to have of them before they happened – none.

*** and ***

Let’s hope that 2014 sees the “blindsided” president (whom the GOP has called the “Bystander President”) learning from his mistakes and taking a more active role in the governance of his country and the doing of his job. As the year unfolds, we’ll all be keeping a close watch.

*** end quote ***

Seems appropriate.

How many time can he use the same excuse?

POLITICAL: Obamacare has more “surprises”

Obamacare’s Biggest Whopper
Betsy McCaughey | Jan 02, 2014

*** begin quote ***

But the nastiest truth about the health law is still to be exposed – the tightening hold the federal government will have over your doctor, even if you’re paying with private insurance. Obama said “you’re not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making.” It was a lie from day one, just like the president’s other sales pitches.

*** end quote ***

Sarah Palin called it “death panels”.

You can believe that they will set “standards”!

Argh!
