• Fourth Amendment Of The United States 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." The recent capitualtion of the United States House of Representaives to the Bush Administrations demands for TELECOM IMMUNITY in anticipation of the United States Senate following suit shall not stand. Congress is empowered to pass laws. If they pass a bad law it needs to be repealed. This is bad law and this site seeks to have this law repealed.

Support Sen. Dodd’s FISA amendment

Chris Dodd has introduced an amendment to the FISA bill that would strip retroactive immunity from the current legislation.   So far it has 9 co-sponsors (no, not Obama).

The 9 cosponsors are:

Sen Feingold, Russell D. [WI] – 6/26/2008
Sen Leahy, Patrick J. [VT] – 6/26/2008
Sen Reid, Harry [NV] – 6/26/2008
Sen Harkin, Tom [IA] – 6/26/2008
Sen Boxer, Barbara [CA] – 6/26/2008
Sen Sanders, Bernard [VT] – 6/26/2008
Sen Wyden, Ron [OR] – 6/26/2008
Sen Kennedy, Edward M. [MA] – 6/26/2008
Sen Durbin, Richard [IL] – 6/26/2008

Senator Dodd  has asked for citizens to stand with him in cosponsoring the bill. (He also gives you the opportunity to make a contribution, but I’m not quite ready to decide who, if anyone, is deserving of my cash.)

There is a whole lot more than retroactive immunity that is wrong with the FISA legislation, but I am supporting the senator’s effort.

  1. FISA Facilitates Fraud!

    60-70% of our national intelligence budget is paid to private contactors. Private contractors help monitor all telephone and internet communications for the federal government.

    Competitors who want your trade secrets, your R&D plans, your bid details, your intellectural property or copies of your confidential communications can hire well placed private contractors to obtain them.

    There is no independent oversight, control or accountability for private intelligence contractor activities.

    FISA presents grave intellectual property security issues.

    The War On Terror is at least a $100 Billion a year business. The people and organizations profiting from it are not going to let go easily.
