Thank you for finally telling us about the criminally abusive spying programs of the federal government, Senator Feinstein. Now resign. [...]

Shame On Senator Feinstein

A genuine grassroots coalition of 24 organizations and over two thousand individuals from California has come together to sign an open letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein, deploring her consistent support for abusive government programs that use electronic communications networks to spy on Americans. The coalition, calling itself Shame On Feinstein, expresses “concern and outrage”, and [...]

Suspicious Person Alert: Code Pink Action to Spy on Dianne Feinstein February 11

Whatever else you may think of the activist group Code Pink, they are very rarely boring. In a typical display of theatrical artistic flair, Code Pink has announced that it will be conducting surveillance at the San Francisco house of a Politically Important Person (SPIP), Senator Dianne Feinstein. Senator Feinstein is one of the most [...]

Obama Administration Caught in More Lies: NSA Admits its own Surveillance Standards were Violated on Purpose

Guess what? The National Security Agency admits that “Over the past decade, very rare instances of willful violations of NSA’s authorities have been found.” The NSA has refused to provide specific numbers to quantify “very rare.” Shall we believe them? Let’s listen in on U.S. Military General Keith Alexander, the Director of the National Security [...]

Exposed: Military NSA violated its own lax surveillance rules — and covered it up

After yesterday’s revelations, did you think the news about warrantless spying on Americans couldn’t possibly get worse?

Well, you’re wrong. Today, there are more revelations about the spying program of the NSA, a branch of the U.S. military. These revelations are even worse than what came before.

What you read below takes for granted [...]

Dianne Feinstein's Flawed Homeland Security Logic Shows PRISM Is A Sham

When the Guardian newspaper discovered that the US government has been spying on Americans’ phone calls, emails, and Internet behavior for years without any reasonable suspicion of criminal behavior, Senator Dianne Feinstein leaped to the defense of the electronic surveillance dragnet. The Big Brother program, called PRISM, is necessary to preserve America’s national security, she [...]

Which Senate Democrats Have Failed To Confront Discrimination On The Basis Of Sexual Orientation?

These Democrats are the congressional equivalent of the kids in high school who would look the other way while the gay kids got beat up. We list the name of the Senate Democratic cowards here. [...]

Dianne Feinstein Asks Americans To Sacrifice Liberty For The Sake of Fear

Dianne Feinstein admitted yesterday is that there aren’t any threats. There aren’t any known terrorist plots. All of the government’s spying, here in the U.S.A and around the world, have led to the conclusion that the United States isn’t in any kind of specific danger. [...]

Dianne Feinstein: I Have No Facts, but this Bomb Would Have Blown Up in Three Different Places

Unpack this, the latest in Senator Dianne Feinstein’s increasingly bizarre line of justifications for unconstitutional surveillance measures. If they weren’t in place…

… two bombs would have left Dubai, headed for the United States, theoretically to Chicago — I don’t know whether this is actually fact, but to to a synagogue in Chicago, and likely [...]

#38 Way to Exasperate a Liberal: Ask the Noisy Opposition Why They Aren’t Saying Anything

Watch the third minute of Senator Dianne Feinstein’s speech in a meeting of the Intelligence Committee on February 15 2011. Try to twist your mind around her justification of Patriot Act surveillance without probable cause:

I am always surprised at the opposition, because I would have thought somebody, if they had a problem, would have [...]

Certain Terrorist Attack Attempt on the US? Nearly 2 Months in and None Yet.

“Certain” is a very strong word. It doesn’t mean that an attack will “probably” happen. It doesn’t mean that it’s “likely” to happen. An event that is “certain” is destined to happen, 100% likely, absolutely unavoidable and inescapable.

So when five senior government officials tell you an event is “certain” to occur, then they’re [...]
