Obama Administration Asks Supreme Court to Dismiss ACLU Challenge to Warrantless Wiretapping Law.

“It’s crucial that the government’s surveillance activities be subject to constitutional limits, but the administration’s argument would effectively insulate the most intrusive surveillance programs from judicial review. The Supreme Court should leave the appeals court’s ruling in place and allow our constitutional challenge to proceed.” - ACLU deputy legal director Jameel Jaffer.

"I'm not disgusted at President Obama personally. It's President Obama's policies on civil liberties and national security issues I'm disgusted by." - ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero

The federal government is trying to delete the bill of rights.

From the Patriot Act to the provisions in the NDAA; amendments 4, 5, and 6 are down. This is being done by both republicans and democrats.

Should the Bill of Rights matter? Of course it does but obama doesnt think so. it limits him. but he had been disregarding it.

Obama is a constitutional scholar. He studied it so he could better destroy it.
