Stop Bush's Illegal Wiretaps

Stop Bush's illegal wiretaps -- act now!
  - fc
It's now been 5 days since President Bush admitted to authorizing the National Security Agency to spy on Americans without court order -- a system he reauthorized as many as 3 dozen times since 2001. Yet despite the outcry from millions of Americans -- both Democrats and Republicans alike -- President Bush has stubbornly promised to continue this illegal and unconstitutional activity.

How can the President of the United States -- the highest elected official in our land, a leader who swore an oath to "preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution" -- so egregiously and repeatedly violate our most basic civil liberties?

It's time for Congress to act -- to thoroughly investigate the President's actions now.

Urge Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter to hold hearings into the President's conduct, before beginning Supreme Court nomination hearings for Judge Alito - sign my petition today!
Barbara Boxer We, the undersigned Americans, urge you to hold thorough public hearings into the program of secret, warrant-less wiretaps authorized by President Bush since 2001. Congress must act to thoroughly investigate the President's actions now.

Clearly, protecting Americans from terrorism here at home must be the top priority of any Administration. But we certainly can do that without trampling on the Constitution in the process. Defending America means protecting our homeland as well as preserving our very rights and freedoms as citizens.

That's why Congress enacted the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in 1978, to protect national security while still preserving civil liberties. Why did President Bush consciously choose to violate federal law, even though the Act clearly states that FISA "shall be the exclusive means by which electronic surveillance...and the interception of domestic wire and oral communications may be conducted"?

This egregious and repeated violation of American civil liberties by President Bush and his Administration requires a thorough Congressional investigation. That's why we urge you to hold hearings before you take up Judge Alito's nomination to the Supreme Court.

  • Lost in the insanity is the fact the New York Times has been sitting on the story for more than a year. Why did it wait so long to run with the story? The Iraq elections gave the administration a much-needed boost in the polls (now over 50%).

    With an Iraq election turnout approaching 80 percent, including among the Sunnis, the election is clear evidence that we've won the war in Iraq. We went there to give Iraqis back their country, and now we've done it, to the dismay of democrats and whiney liberals.

    Everyone knows that Democrats had absolutely nothing to do with it either, and therefore dems can't stand it because they'd rather have Saddam back killing thousands of innocent people than admitting they were wrong again.

    But the FACT remains..... BUSH WON, and DEMS LOST... AGAIN!

    So the New York Times false story was calculated to steal the administration's thunder and provide its critics with fresh ammunition. (Backfire)

    The 9-11 commission recommended expanding America's intelligence-gathering capacity as the most important remedy to preventing a repeat of September 11.

    According to the Democrats, the administration has "ignored" those recommendations and, as a result, insisted that America is no safer, even as not one terror attack has happened since 9/11 inside the U.S..

    Democrats are hoping for a big one so they can blame the president, but that too would backfire on the dummies.

    The administration has been hammered for bad intelligence regarding the war with Iraq by the libs. It has been hammered for bad intelligence that has prevented the capture or killing of bin Laden and other dangerous terrorist leaders.

    Now, the administration is being hammered for being too aggressive in its intelligence-gathering efforts. What's more alarming is that they now say "the only way to fix the problem is to hold congressional hearings to investigate our intelligence-gathering apparatus."

    We've already seen just how secure classified intelligence information is in congressional hands. Sen. Richard Shelby's deliberate leak of vital intelligence information probably kept us from catching bin Laden.

    More bricks, less straw. It's an old technique, but it still works. You take away a servant's necessary tools and thereby guarantee his failure.

    Some Democrats and other commie liberals are playing a very dangerous game by politicizing necessary tools and secrecy needed to fight terror to make Republicans look bad and bring down a hated president. They have seemingly forgotten or ignored that we are still at war with the most dangerous enemy ever to threaten this country and others in the world.


    So Scream louder would ya? Dean can't hear you!

    Impeachment Nonsense

    Here's hoping the whiners on the left keep calling for hearings about Bush protecting the nation after 9/11.

    Libs are just so simple!

    Oh, you may want to read this.... The New York Times Christmas Gift

  • The wiretaps are perfectly legal according to FISA and all common-sense readings of its language. And while we're on the subject, so are the public-access monitorings of mosques for radiation emissions.

    This is not about the right to privacy, which is actually a fiction. It's about the safety and well-being of the citizens of these United States.
