Compound that with this being at least the third thread created about this bill and none of them have more than a handful of replies, it’s really pretty baffling. For a “conspiracy site” the near total lack of response to this is just amazing. Add in the replies of “well McConnell’s bill added a clause about how the AG can conduct a once-a-year review of FISA requests so it’s fine” and it really just goes to show how this place has changed.

Pro-tip: the AG reviewing FISA court submissions once a year has absolutely nothing to do with the FBI being able to Hoover up your internet data without a warrant.


It's tough for partisan asshats to formulate an honest reply it seems.

Does the data protection act not stop them from being able to do this anyway ?

Well they've been leaning on GCHQ here in the UK to spy on their own people according to recent reports and no doubt America has been doing that to us over here and then sharing info between each other so at least now they won't have to rely on us.

I'm not surprised anymore.

The most popular threads are typically the left vs right conversations that share the same talking points with the mainstream discussion.

It's really a shame, but in the last few years people have gotten re polarized. Depending on the context of a conversation, almost anyone who keeps up with things will tell you that we are losing our rights as citizens, and the federal government has been violating the constitution in horrible ways. The second you put a conversation through a political lens, people will change their tune almost immediately and act is if only one side is really going against us.

Personally, I think they are very good at using the environment to get people in their camps... Sometimes it even looks as if it's orchestrated, or at least conveniently in both parties favor.

Look at the Russia gate one, it gave just enough fodder to both sides for them to be convicted in their beliefs while not really transpiring into much of anything.

But the partisan argument is what drowns out almost all the conversation. No one has time to talk about what we the people need to do to get some semblance of control and liberty back in this country. We are supposed to be the employers and decision makers of this country for the most part. Our employees are supposed to carry out our wishes on our behalf. All of that is gone. What we have is a mere shell of what it was once before. We're a bloated federal ran country that expresses many of the things we sought independence from. Excessive taxation, imperialism, and worst of all rights violators.

Robot dogs. The FBI in our browser histories without warrant. Social distancing. Nancy Pelosi. Oh my.

I don't give a rats posterior about L vs R or any other "wings" not attached to a flying machine or animal, or dining room table for that matter. It doesn't matter what side you're on, it's clear that what is going on is a fight between TPTB and the citizens of planet earth, and if the gullible, spoon-fed, media consuming citizens don't get their malleable heads out of their rectums, guess who's gonna win?

Problem is 6.999x to 7.x billion are living with their brains plugged into the MSM therefor rendering them useless puppets to the system, leaving those of us who actually have a brain independant from Fox, CNN, NYT, WashPo, etc suffering the effects of a weak civilian population being strung out by a greedy, power hungry, vote hungry political mass.

Its not just him and the repubs.

But this should be a red flag to anyone regardless of party.

Hasn't been enacted yet. There's still time to send your opinion to your elected officials.


that needed to be repeated.

We need to vote out everyone who voted to make it legal to search our private stuff without a warrant.

If they didn't know about my midget porn addiction before they sure will now.


I've heard about the "midget" defense before. Don't think it works anymore.

Just kidding, but seriously. I wasn't happy that Blackburn was elected in my state, so when I found out that she voted against the ammendment I wasn't surprised.

It's probably because the last set of voting during the supposed "blue wave" everyone in Tennessee voted straight red ticket. Which is cool if you have a decent set of candidates and do your research, but from what I remember when I went to the voting booth her name was at the top of the list, and we didn't really have a good set of candidates to begin with.

Plus she's your typical southern belle type of woman who talks about God and southern heritage and all that.

I assumed that as well but at least we thought it was illegal for them....

Now it's looking like it will be legal and there is nothing we can do.

Unfortunately, we've opened pandoras box.

If we teach the next generation to not be so divided it will close once our gen is all dead.

Clearly, that is not happening.

Mitch McConnell is just as much a scumbag as Pelosi. And he cares about the average joe..just as much.

You have to wonder why a warrant is such a troublesome thing for the people who seem to always be pursuing things like this. Must be that pesky probable cause thing.

On the bright side, I can't honestly think of anything I have searched for that I'd really get into trouble for. Embarrassing in some cases? Sure. I think if you were a public figure or had a prestigious job this would probably be more of an intimidating thing though. It doesn't take a lot to cut someone down when they're high status.

I can see why this may be an issue, but the fact of the matter is Google already has 99% of peoples metadata including there internet history.

On tap 24/7 tucked away in some server farm and our respective alphabet agencies have and always will have the capability to access any POI internet history(even behind a VPN) at will, with or without a warrant, where or not "they" care to admit the fact or otherwise.

There is no anonymity in the information age in which we live.

Good ole Mitch is clearly just an old fart with the same old social conservatism thing going on as drove the Meese Commission. This is pretty much standard fare when these types get power. The world can be falling apart around them and they're still trying to figure out how to ban porn. 'Coz tha Bible says so y'all!

So that noose is getting tighter and people just say meh, all they need to do now is have government censorship of social media platforms, and while they're at it dismantle the court systems, do not pass go, do not collect 200 and go straight to jail.

Don't we already have government censorship of social media platforms?

Even if it is somewhat still inhouse, i imagine they toe the line, regarding government rhetoric at one level or another considering where they do business and where the majority of there target audience resides.

HA! So what about those of us who have no ISP, and use controlled access mobile devices in public hotspots?? Exactly how do they plan on getting my browsing history then?? I don't even have a home PC anymore!

Like I have been saying folks, you give them all the power they need over you voluntarily. If you run an online business, then your legit and nothing to worry about right??

What happens when they request your browsing history from every ISP in the world, and there just is not anything there because you have no account or home computer that records anything? Do they automatically assume guilt??
