The acronym FISA:It is OK for you to know this wasn't a renewal of FISA. It was only section 702 and the Intercept link incorrectly described what happened. It's okay, you've never had the facts. justthefakenews.
The bill also consolidates the FBI’s legal authority to search those communications without a warrant. Under current rules, the NSA shares certain kinds of information it collects under Section 702 with the FBI, whose agents can then search it in the course of investigating crimes unrelated to national security. In a secret court hearing in 2015, a lawyer for the Justice Department compared the frequency of those searches to the use of Google.
On Thursday, the House failed to pass an amendment to the bill offered by Rep. Justin Amash, R.-Mich., which would have required federal law enforcement agents to get a warrant before searching NSA data for information on Americans. The amendment was defeated 183-233, with 125 Democrats voting for it and 55 Democrats against, including Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif..
It is totally pointless to explain things to people incapable of comprehending the facts. You've proven in this thread you have no idea what 702 is. No idea.I triple dog dare you to, just this one time, actually make a substantive argument. What did the Intercept get wrong?
The OP ruined this thread. You are a moron.The sad part is that this thread could have easily been a non-partisan discussion. There are plenty of Republicans who supported the Amash amendment. At one point in time Republicans fancied themselves the party of limited government and protection of individual rights. But diehard is incapable of actually discussing the substance of an issue and must resort to name-calling and insults to overcome what is apparently a massive degree of insecurity. And thus, like so many before, the thread is ruined.
Admit it: the President, after a couple of hours in which he was confused on his own position, the President's opinion was that the bill should pass without the amendment. At that point, no further understanding or discussion was necessary for those who adhere to his every command.
He’s sensitive because I routinely own him. He won’t refute the article because he’s a chud with a blind reverence for Trump and he craves an authoritarian right wing government for some reason. These guys also don’t have any real politics outside of resentment, so they’ll never criticize Trump for anything—that wouldn’t trigger the libs.The OP is a link to an article.
You should have watched my video of Rogers before you posted.
Actually, what happened is I watched the movie Citizenfour on HBO and was truly frightened. As a result I installed Privacy Badger and User-Agent Switcher for Chrome and began using a VPN.Because Schiff and Pelosi voted with Trump.

This includes not only surveillance, but also prosecution of foreign wars.
I really don't recall you posting in the Obama era, only around the time of the election last year. But given your constant political spin, it's not hard to believe that your calling out of Dems is selective and only when it augments an attack on Republicans. It's fine. Maybe I'm wrong.Actually, what happened is I watched the movie Citizenfour on HBO and was truly frightened.

Please note this post from almost 8 months ago:
(BTW, read through that thread if you'd like to see some posts from people who only care about warrantless spying when it suits them)
It's so great, though, that you argue with one of the people in the thread who agrees with you. Tribalism at its finest.
Another low information post that completely dodged the topic. Unqualified.Was the rogue element that conducted surveillance on the Trump campaign FBI or NSA? Does section 702 effect the NSA or the FBI? The Intercept has proven to be a left shill and provide misinformation. Progressives rely on that to make their bogus points.
How would you like the Trump administration to conduct political warfare on its opponents using rogue weaponized elements of national intelligence assets? That is exactly what Obama did. Think about it. I do not believe we have ever had as dirty and illegal President ever before as Obama. Clearly the worse President ever and obviously has nothing to do with skin color. Remember you are the racists.
I guarantee that not one of you had heard of 702 before this and do not know what it is today. Certainly not in accurate terms.
Progressives defending this activity are the lowest of the low and time is coming shortly.
Klocuhar is a lightweight as Trump would say. She co signs on bills that don't matter, than votes party lines on other votes.Tina Smith voted against invoking cloture on the bill that would reauthorize FISA, but Amy Klobuchar voted yay. Really disappointed in Klobuchar.
I think you and I are agreed on this issue, but in this case I don't know if you can call it party line. AK was one of 19 Dems to vote yay, whereas 30 Dems voted nay.Klocuhar is a lightweight as Trump would say. She co signs on bills that don't matter, than votes party lines on other votes.
I don't know much about Tina Smith, but I think its pretty cool she voted against it. If she runs for the seat, I will definitely keep an eye on her for my vote.
