Obama has all my phone data!

For years I’ve had a Verizon phone. Now it turns out President Obama’s regime grabbed all my phone data without a warrant, and without notifying me.

Am I one of those conservatives and libertarians the IRS has been hassling? Or because I’m another journalist it wants to hassle, as it has AP? No. Big Brother Barack just took everybody’s data:

“Barack Obama’s administration is collecting the telephone records of tens of millions of American customers of Verizon Communications, under a top secret court order.

“The order — signed by the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court — compels Verizon to give the National Security Agency details of all telephone calls made by its customers within the US and from foreign locations into the US for three months from January 19 to April 25.”

So they have records of everybody I called in my work as a journalist. I write mostly about California. But I also write about the Obama regime and its attacks on our liberties, like this one.

The Fourth Amendment is clear:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

No warrant was issued by Big Brother Barack. I have committed no crime. I’m not even suspected of committing a crime (unless relentlessly criticizing government now is a crime in Americka). Yet the Obama regime perpetrated an “unreasonable” search and seizure of my “papers and effects,” without any “probable cause” whatsoever, and certainly without a “Warrant” issued by a judge.

To be fair, if that’s possible, this whole illegal regime was set up by Republican President George W. Bush when he panicked after 9/11 and shredded the entire Bill of Rights with the unconstitutional USA PATRIOT Act, better called the USA TRAITORS’ Act because it betrays America’s sacred heritage of liberty; and with the Military Commissions Act.

When it came out, I read Obama’s 2006 book, “The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream.” A former professor of constitutional law, he wrote about restoring the civil liberties lost in the Bush years.

In office, he has done the opposite, taking the violations of liberty up a notch.
