US Justice Department acknowledges wide-ranging surveillance of Associated Press in massive Government tyranny against Americans and the Constitution
The president of the Associated Press has sent a letter of protest to US Attorney General Eric Holder over the Department of Justice’s broad surveillance of individual reporters’ phone conversations.
In a letter received by the AP on Friday, the Justice Department acknowledged but offered no explanation for the seizure of two months’ worth of telephone records of reporters and editors. AP’s president, Gary Pruitt, called the ongoing monitoring a “massive and unprecedented intrusion.”
The AP believes that more than 100 journalists are involved in the DOJ’s phone surveillance, which would have involved a wide variety of stories regarding government and other topics. Pruitt has called for the return of obtained phone records, as well as the destruction of all copies.
“There can be no possible justification for such an overbroad collection of the telephone communications of The Associated Press and its reporters. These records potentially reveal communications with confidential sources across all of the newsgathering activities undertaken by the AP during a two-month period, provide a road map to AP’s newsgathering operations, and disclose information about AP’s activities and operations that the government has no conceivable right to know,” said Pruitt.
Question. What do you mean “deciding what care to provide to illegal immigrants?” The laws are already passed, morons… How about none, since the options still sound like they’re open?
America is in serious, serious trouble.
The time to raise the minimum wage is not an economy when 30 million people are unemployed, taxes are going up, and the stock market is being propped up with tyrannical debt-laden machinations from the FED which will end in disaster, soon.
The House on Friday rejected a Democratic push to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10, shooting down one of President Obama’s priorities from his State of the Union speech.
The 233-184 defeat also exposed divisions within the Democratic Party. Where Mr. Obama called for a hike from the current $7.25 to $9 an hour, congressional Democrats pushed for a $10.10 rate.
But they couldn’t muster unity even within their own ranks. Six Democrats from conservative-leaning districts voted against the wage increase, as did every single Republican who was present.
Megyn Kelly discusses that once Michigan’s Right to work law was obviously going to pass, the Unions jumped in and quickly negotiated ugly deals to try and circumvent that and still force 10 years of mandatory dues collection even though the new law would be in place. Disgusting, but not unusual for union thugs.
