More Neo-conman spin
This time it's from Charles Krauthammer in the Washington Post saying that using the NSA to snoop on Americans without a warrant is o.k. What a complete and utter-fucking moron. (Or should I say udder fucking moron. The vision of Dr. Krauthammer fucking an udder is enough to go for the brain bleach.) Hey, he called those calling for impeachment ignorant, I can call him a fucking moron. Here's why I think he's a fucking moron who thinks you are stupid.
Does the president have the constitutional authority to conduct warrantless searches against suspected foreign agents in the United States?......In 1972 the Supreme Court required the president to obtain warrants to eavesdrop on domestic groups but specifically declined to apply this requirement to snooping on foreign agents. Four appeals courts have since upheld presidential authority for such warrantless searches. Not surprisingly, the executive branch has agreed.The US Code defines a foreign agent as follows:
US citizens were removed from the Foreign Agents Registration Act in 1995 and placed under the Lobbying Disclosure Act in 1995. They are required by law to register with the Lobbying Disclosure Act in 1995 of 18 U.S.C. 219
Q. What constitutes an agent?
A. An agent of a Foreign principal is any individual or organization which acts at the order, request, or under the direction or control of a foreign principal, or whose activities are directed by a foreign principal who:
1. engages in political activities, or
2. acts in a public relations capacity for a foreign principal, or
3. solicits or dispenses any thing of value within the United States for a foreign principal, or
4. who represents the interests of a foreign principal before any agency or official of the U.S. government.
The term "agent" does not include an American owned and operated newspaper meeting certain requirements.
So is Dr Krauthammer, winner of the 2002 Guardian of Zion award and one of Israel's biggest cheerleaders, an agent of a foreign power? (I blog and you can draw your own conclusions.) Does that mean he wouldn't have a problem with the NSA listening in to his conservations about dinner with his wife because he is an advocate for a foreign power?
He concludes with
Contrary to the administration, I also believe that as a matter of political prudence and comity with Congress, Bush should have tried to get the law changed rather than circumvent it. This was an error of political judgment. But that does not make it a crime. And only the most brazen and reckless partisan could pretend it is anything approaching a high crime and misdemeanor.No, Dr Krauthammer, lying about a blow job under oath is an error of political judgment. Snooping on American citizens and permanent resident aliens without a warrant is an impeachable offense.
