Section 702 of the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) is a warrantless surveillance law that gives carte blanche authority to the NSA to monitor everything that you say or do on the internet and with your telephone. It expires on December 31, 2017, unless Congress renews it.
Not only the National Security Agency, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and several other US bodies may use and abuse this power as they see fit, to gather and/or search private communications without a warrant.
This surveillance affects people both within the United States and in other countries.
Remember that time you thought you were just talking with your girl. Some creepy dude in Langley was on the party line.
Those snapchats you sent? Those are the governments property, bro. Because Freedom.
Once upon a time the citizens of America didn’t like being pushed around, but no signs of resistance to anything in America these days, except its duly and democratically elected president.
A legion of pencil necked bureaucrats meanwhile rummages through your life on a daily basis with zero oversight, and they do it on behalf of the same dirty alphabet agencies that have been engaged in open warfare with American democracy ever since the Kennedy assassination.
What are you going to do about it, Poindexter?
