1984 spying to be renewed by GOP Congress

Big Brother is Also Incompetent
Pick your answer:
  • Choice A  -  From 9-11 to the Ft. Hood massacre to the Boston Bombing to the San Bernardino attack the NSA has proved themselves to be utterly incompetent boobs who are unable to stop any terrorist attack.

(Infowars)  -  The House is poised to reauthorize a controversial warrantless surveillance program allowing government collection of foreign emails on U.S. soil.
The authority known as Section 702, established in 2008 as part of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Amendments Act, allows the National Security Agency to collect information and communications of overseas foreign targets from U.S. companies without a warrant.
The program is set to expire on New Year’s Eve if the House doesn’t reauthorize the measure.
Section 702 “is the single most important operational statute that the NSA has,” according to NSA general counsel Glenn Gerstell. “There is no replacement for it.”
The legitimacy and scope of Section 702 was questioned by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) earlier this year when he asserted that then President-elect Donald Trump and members of his team were illegally surveilled at Trump Tower under the provision’s authority.
“[W]e have found evidence that current and former government officials had easy access to personal information, and it is possible that these officials used this information to achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information,” Nunes wrote in a letter to Director of National Security Dan Coats over the summer.
“[S]enior government officials offered remarkably few individualized justifications for access to this U.S. person information,” Nunes added. 
Lawmakers, including Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) already said they would vote against the measure.
