Federal Judge Rules NSA Surveillance Legal

U.S. District Judge William Paley ruled today that the NSA’s rampant violations of the Fourth Amendment are legal.

He cited al-Qaeda and 9/11 when he dismissed a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union challenging the NSA’s surveillance program.

Paley said the NSA program “represents the government’s counter-punch” to al-Qaeda. Despite recent evidence to the contrary, Paley also said violating the rights of millions of Americans prevents terror attacks.

Geoffrey Stone, a University of Chicago law professor who is a member of a White House panel established to investigate NSA violations unearthed by the whistleblower Edward Snowden, said last week evidence that massive surveillance stops terrorist attacks is “very thin.”

Obama insists that lives have been saved by violating the Fourth Amendment and the conclusions of the panel handpicked by his administration reveal deep skepticism of the NSA program’s efficacy.

Paley said the government “adapted to confront a new enemy: a terror network capable of orchestrating attacks across the world.”

    In 1862 the creditors of America, the Bank of England, sent the following circular to every bank in New York and New England:

    “Slavery is likely to be abolished by the war power. This, I and my European friends are in favour of, for slavery is but the owning of labour and carries with it the care of the labourer, while the European plan, led on by England, is for capital to control labour by controlling the wages. This can be done by controlling the money. The great debt that capitalists will see to it is made out of the war must be used as a means to control the volume of money. To accomplish this, the bonds must be used as a banking basis. We are now waiting for the Secretary of the Treasury to make the recommendations to Congress. It will not do to allow the greenback, as it is called, to circulate any length of time, as we cannot control that.”

    “When through a process of law the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and more easily governed by the strong arm of the law, applied by the central power of wealth, under the control of leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. This is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an IMPERIALISM OF CAPITAL TO GOVERN THE WORLD. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been generally planned and successfully accomplished.”

    That was part of a leaflet called the “Bankers’ Manifest” printed for private circulation among leading bankers only. It appeared in 1934.
