ISIS In Texas or Fear Mongering for The Patriot Act Renewal?

 

Section 215 of the PATRIOT Act which allows the NSA to unconstitutionally snoop on the telephone calls of all Americans is set to expire on June 1.

Minimizing public opposition is key, and fear is one of the media’s historical tools of choice to get the public inline with a desired agenda.

“People overreact when there is a tremendous amount of fear.  That’s when people are more likely to give up their freedoms.”

    – Ron Paul

“Every one of these high profile arrests and thwarted attacks have involved an FBI informant or an FBI officer who has been involved infiltrating the groups or goading the groups on.”

    – Daniel McAdams, Executive Director of Institute for Peace & Prosperity

On May 7 the Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that NSA mega-surveillance “exceeds the scope of what Congress has authorized,” Judge Gerard Lynch wrote on behalf of the three-judge panel.

A lower court had previously characterized Section 215 as “almost-Orwellian” and a violation of the Constitution.

Without the public demanding action, and scared of an enemy, the opposition to the NSA’s domestic spying activities could be a problem for those who are in favor of the surveillance state.
