The Rutherford Institute has uncovered a secret effort by the Obama to give law enforcement and intelligence power to hack into personal computers and phones.
Without the consent or knowledge of the owner, and in the absence of criminal activity, Obama wants to plant malicious software and rummage through the personal contents of your devices!
Big Brother is not coming, he is here! Obama has lost his mind!
The Conservative Firing Line reports:
The DOJ’s proposed changes to the Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 41 have been justified as a way to fight cyber-crime and make it easier for law enforcement to track down cyber criminals who use tools such as Tor, botnets or malware to mask their true location.
With the U.S. Supreme Court already having rubber-stamped its approval to the Rule 41 amendment allowing the government to expand its surveillance powers, Congress has until December 1 to either block or approve the change.
In a letter to Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Or.) who has publicly announced his intent to introduce legislation to block the amendments, Rutherford Institute attorneys set forth their objections to the proposed Rule 41 changes, which they characterize as a significant expansion of the surveillance power the government may use to spy on its citizens.
Thank you Senator Wyden! Some common sense!
Our founders are rolling over in their graves! The right to privacy and due process are sacrosanct!
Several amendments to the U.S. Constitution include the right to personal autonomy:
- The First Amendment protects the privacy of beliefs
- The Third Amendment protects the privacy of the home against the use of it for housing soldiers
- The Fourth Amendment protects privacy against unreasonable searches
- The Fifth Amendment protects against self-incrimination, which in turn protects the privacy of personal information
- The Ninth Amendment says that the “enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage other rights retained by the people.” This has been interpreted as justification for broadly reading the Bill of Rights to protect privacy in ways not specifically provided in the first eight amendments.
The right to privacy is most often cited in the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment, which states:
No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States;nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law;nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
This is insanity at its finest!
