Reach Out And Eavesdrop on Someone...

AT&T sued over NSA spy program

The Electronic Frontier Foundation, which filed the suit, says AT&T's alleged cooperation violates free speech and privacy rights found in the U.S. Constitution and also contravenes federal wiretapping law, which prohibits electronic surveillance "except as authorized by statute."

If I used AT&T I could call and cancel their poor, overpriced and questionable service.

Special prosecutor Fitzgerald and Biloxi,

That review really told us all we need to know about florida politics, didn't it?

Dirty crime, murder, and the drug mafia.....election fraud ?
report on florida

By the way here's some interesting news from the voting side of things.....it appears the Supreme Court is going to be taking on trial a historical lawsuit on behalf of our elections!!!

lynn landes goes all the way to the supreme court: challenges constitutional right of voting, arguing that it must be transparent

"In her lawsuit Landes claims that, as a voter and a journalist, she has the right to direct access to a physical ballot and to observe the voting process unimpeded. Voting by machine or absentee, Landes claims, introduces obstacles and concealment to a process that must be accessible and transparent in a meaningful and effective manner.

Landes is representing herself in this action.



"I tried to get civil rights organizations interested in this case, but had no luck. Their disregard for this issue is incredible. It's clear to me that without direct access to a physical ballot and meaningful transparency in the process, our elections have no integrity whatsoever," says Landes.

The defendants in the Landes lawsuit are Margaret Tartaglione, Chair of the City Commissioners of Philadelphia; Pedro A. Cortes, Secretary of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; and Alberto Gonzales, Attorney General of the United States.



Attorneys for the defendants have successfully fought Landes, claiming that she did not prove an injury and therefore does not have standing. Landes counters that she has the right to challenge the constitutionality of acts of the legislative branch under federal statute and case law, most significantly under Marbury v. Madison, 5 U.S. 137 (1803).

Early American history seems to favor the Landes position. Prior to the Civil War, voting was a public and transparent process. It was only after the war, as the elective franchise expanded to minorities and women, three changes to state and federal election laws were adopted that eventually made the voting process a private and nontransparent enterprise: absentee voting was allowed (1870's), the Australian secret ballot method was adopted (1880's), and voting machines were permitted by Congress (1899).



Today, 94.6% of all votes are processed by machines and approximately 30% of all voting is conducted early or by absentee."


Well well....Did Abramoff have something to do with this, I think its time to get rid of all the voting machines....clean elections, or else aren't you just electing more crooks ?

So, once again we have protection of wrongdoing by the very system that is supposed to protect us from the wrongdoers? This administration has certainly learned how to bend the rules in their favor. Hello, out there...all you Independents that got bamboozled into voting for these crooks....how you you feel now?

Roy,

I did read about the Abromoff possible connection to murder. And election fraud connection? Could be possible? It is turning into a mystery novel. I do agree that we need to clean up the voting machines. In fact, clean up the whole Administration. It is a shame to har that many people weren't even allow to vote in the 2000 and 2004 election.

Finally,

Regarding AT&T, I am glad that I don't have AT&T. I had a cell phone through them and their customer service was lousy. I had to cut them loose. I would advise all of you folks to notify your local carrier of your phone or cell phone and ask if they are giving your information to the goverment. Michael Moore had on his website a link to every carrier for anyone to email or write to. I received a letter and email from my carrier of my cell phone (Nextel). Nextel has not and will not release any information to the governent...:)

Mark Felt should ask that his case be reopen as King George said eavesdropping is legal. I know the President of Russia is laughing at the US and saying Bush is turning the US into the old Russia. With all the talk show host lying and spinning the truth for Bush no wonder people are confused. I guess Bush was right about one thing if people are not educated they will follow anyone.

Grandmanuk,

Re: Diebold.........

Crooked crooks and connected to Egil Krogh, the Watergate felon. The old Nixon gang again is born again and resurrected. In essence, the voting machines were programmed by a felonious convicted computer hacker. Time for the thumbs screws...

The surface has been scratched finally.

""Diebold claims that it did not work with Jeffrey Dean after acquiring Global Election Systems in 2002. However, the Dean depositions reveal that in May and June 2002, during the time the "rob-georgia" patch was created, Jeffrey Dean was called back to do consulting for Diebold."

From the above link...

"Convicted of 23 felonies for computer crimes, Jeffrey Dean was sent to prison for four years. Shortly after release in 1995, Dean was awarded lucrative contracts to create elections software and print ballots. Programs developed by Dean are in use throughout the U.S."

This is the original cause of our countries present troubles and all the WH leaks, paybacks and petty scandals are pale in comparison.

It's time to cut the nit picking and get to the dark roots if any change is going to occur. Without honest and open elections all the other investigations are moot and will be generally fruitless.

With the current voting machines continuing in operation the growing belief that the Republican party will fall in the next election is laughable and truly naive.

Fitzgerald has Scott & Scott LLP dealing with Diebold

Focus on finishing off the real crime syndicate, taking down Rove, Ney the whole shebang.....

Diebold's days are numbered....And the voting rights including instant-runoff voting will be going to court

Vote Trust Usa

Otherwise I agree, not neccesarily republicans or democrats. We just won't have any changes in congress.

Until the voting machines and lobbyists are dealt with of course....then the ENTIRE CONGRESS will be reshapred!

Thanks, CJT and anon.....This administration has so many transgressions against our Constitution that it seems hard to believe that our vote is not even protected. It is disheartening that they have been allowed to get away with so much. Hopefully, with PJF and crew this unfortunate series of events will soon start to unravel. I know that those of us who visit this site have much more confidence in this team than they do in this administration.

What roy really means is that when foreign lobbyists own the voting machines, when they hold the cards, they select who gets into office.

Every single solitary time. And he's right, regardless of who's party.....but destroying this and building in its place the third party will eliminate that fact.

And it would eliminate 90% of the cases fitzgerald usually has to prosecute!!! We'd put old boy out of a job :)

No, not really. He'd just get real work alot more often and not be facing mountains of corruption cases. I think we'd all like that.....

Bluewild,

Although I suspect you are aware of this, regardless...

Search on how Katherine Harris under Jeb "back then" and how all her staff's hard drives were wiped clean by an IT contractors "mistake" after the 2000 selection or go further into her constant cell phone calls to someone in the WH during the Gore-Bush vote count debacle. Quickly, these obvious illegal actions required of investigation by FL constitutional law were quickly squelched by the Tallahasee powers that are.

Anon 12:54,

"Just give them their football and beer and they are happy"...as quoted from a Reagan WH high level functionary.

Correct you are about the 2 party system. Think of that in a simple general way like this...

CJT,

I'm aware that vote fraud has been rampant and if you say anything about it then you are a labeled Conpiracy nut.

I just feel all of this is so far down the track that we are doomed. I really find it depressing.

Did you ever see the science fiction movie THEY LIVE, I think that's what it is called, by John Carpenter, of all people. It's very 80's and a little shlocky but much of it is quite prescient metaphorically speaking, and right on. I feel like I am in that movie now. Or the original TruffautFahrenheit 451.

BlueWild,

I've heard of the movie but never seen it. I'll put it on my list..TY.

As a Floridian I wonder how much of the rest of the country is aware of what really went on here then..I touched the surface of course you know...police roadblocks in the Hoods on election day yadda yadda on and on.

On depression with a connect to movies...I see all these dim clones around me now with shaved heads and can only think of of THX-1138!

Well blue, the good news is about it finally all hitting rock bottom is it can't ever get any worse and the neocons have nowhere to go now but down......

Remember that, and stop thinking it as depressing. The world knows the truth.

Our Fitzgerald here and others know well and of the truth and are going to catch each and every.....you know what, before the very last remain of the empire collapses.

Florida exposes Drug DEA-linked ring straight to the supreme court. Election fraud.

They know all about this and Wayne Madsen has the full envelope of evidence...think whats going to come out in the Abramoff murder trial now and even more...You'll find out Florida has been totally in the hands of the israel columbian mafia UNTIL just about now....
