In a stunning defense of President George W. Bush's warrantless wiretapping program, President Barack Obama has broadened the government's legal argument for immunizing his Administration and government agencies from lawsuits surrounding the National Security Agency's eavesdropping efforts.

Wow make sure you click the link and read the rest of the story.

It just gos to show that that both presidents are puppets destroying America's sovereign rites for the same master.
Of course this is to be expected by all of us here, or at least those of us that believe in the NWO/builderburges.
Did you notice this phrase in the artical, (the Obama DOJ has now invented a brand new claim of government immunity)?
Obama is playing this game sa if NO rules apply to him at all!
The Arrogance of Obama and his ministry is absolutely mind blowing!

"Before PATRIOT, in addition to being able to sue for money damages, you could sue for declaratory relief from a judge. For example, an Internet service provider could ask the court to declare that a particular type of wiretapping that the government wants to do on its network is illegal. One could also sue for an injunction from the court, ordering that any illegal wiretapping stop. PATRIOT section 223 significantly reduced a judge's ability to remedy unlawful surveillance, making it so you can only sue the government for money damages. This means, for example, that no one could sue the government to stop an ongoing illegal wiretap. At best, one could sue for the government to pay damages while the illegal tap continued!"


It figures.
Guilty until proven innocent.
We'll wiretap your communications until we find something with which we can bust you.
And you can't do a thing about it, until we bust you.
Have a nice day!

It's all worth it because I've never felt safer. Having the same President for the past 20 years has brought about a sense of familiarity and security.

No, it really doesn't matter. TPTB are going to continue placing puppets presidents into office.

On topic:

I'm not surprised. We're never going to get rid of the patriot act or some incarnation thereof. 9-11 was orchestrated just to get this damn thing passed, do you think they're going to let anything happen to diminish their powers to scoff at the Constitution?
