Bipartisan Backlash Grows Against Domestic Surveillance

Lawmakers from both parties called for the collection of the private data of millions of Americans to be scaled back.

Surveillance of Citizens by Government, Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), United States Politics and Government, National Security Agency, House of Representatives, Senate, Democratic Party, Republican Party.

The Obama administration faced a growing Congressional backlash against the National Security Agency’s domestic surveillance operations on Wednesday, as lawmakers from both parties called for the vast collection of private data on millions of Americans to be scaled back.

During a sometimes contentious hearing of the House Judiciary Committee, Republicans and Democrats told administration officials that they believed the government had exceeded the surveillance authorities granted by Congress, and warned that they were unlikely to be reauthorized in the future.

Representative Jim Sensenbrenner, Republican of Wisconsin, said that no one in Congress believed that the counterterrorism laws enacted since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks were meant to allow for the collection of phone records of virtually everyone in America.

“The government is stockpiling sensitive personal data on a grand scale,” said Representative Ted Deutch, Democrat of Florida. “Intelligence officers, contractors and personnel only need a rubber-stamp warrant from the FISA court to then learn virtually everything there is to know about an American citizen,” he said, referring to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

 

The information above highlights, in contrast, the almost non-existing protest of the German government. Personal information has been stolen from German people, not to mention from the German government, and this stealing is continuing, and the German government keeps mum.

They, the Germans and their government, are the perfect material for dictatorship. They have gone through two dictatorships already and now they can’t await the start of the third one. And they are even so stupid that they don’t realize that the third one has already started.
