NSA to Destroy Records Collected Under Phone Spying Program

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence released a statement concerning the retention of metadata collected in accordance with section 215 of the PATRIOT Act.

“On June 29, 2015, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court

approved the Government’s application to resume the Section 215 bulk telephone metadata program pursuant to the USA FREEDOM Act’s 180-day transition provision. As part of our effort to transition to the new authority, we have evaluated whether NSA should maintain access to the historical metadata after the conclusion of that 180-day period.”

Sounds good on the surface but the NSA will maintain the communication until November 29, 2015. The Intelligence Analysts will have access to that data which go back five years. Beltway translation: Democrats own this mess and want to get rid of records before Obama leaves office. However, as authorized by the USA FREEDOM Act, technical personnel will have access to the historical metadata for an additional three months. The records will be removed from NSA’s data banks sometime in January 2016.

After November 29th the NSA will require phone companies to maintain metadata and make it readily available upon request by government officials. In short, the purge of records from federal  computers will not end the program but rather move the record keeping from the government to private companies, the same companies which sell phones manufactured by Foxconn.

Notice to privacy advocates–this is not a victory. Just lipstick on a pig. It is not the reform that privacy advocates had hoped for. Not only will the NSA have unlimited access to phone records collected during the last five years, the government has transformed phone companies into a warehouse for future collection. And government agencies and departments will have full access to all records and information compiled by telephone companies throughout the nation.

The only entity that can stop this practice of federal espionage against the American people is the Foreign Intelligence

Surveillance Court. But the FISA court is run by John Roberts, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. And whether he has been blackmailed by the Obama Regime as many believe, or is just a typical liberal masquerading as a conservative, Roberts is unlikely to deny the federal government any of the information it desires.

Americans would have never known the scope of phone data

collection by the NSA were it not for Edward Snowden, the former CIA agent who leaked information concerning the criminal activities of the Obama Regime and its spies in the NSA. A petition demanding a pardon for Snowden, containing some 160,000 signatures, has been ignored by the White House.

Time now for a quiz. The large scale collection of phone metadata started 5 years ago. Who was the President?

 

Supreme Court finds Congress irrelevant as Justices award law making powers to president and…Supreme Court

By Doug Book, editor

Coach is Right recently alerted its readers to the importance of the upcoming Supreme Court decision in King v Burwell, a case which would determine whether the Internal Revenue Service had the authority—on the orders of Barack Obama–to re-interpret the Affordable Care Act in a manner favorable to Obama and contrary to the clear language and intent of the Act as written by Congress.

Though Obama and members of his Regime have already re-written the Act (contrary to the Constitution) on 31 separate occasions, it was hoped—certainly it was never more than a hope—that the Court would uphold the will of a Congress which wrote 7 times in the Act that subsidies to ObamaCare policy holders would be made available only by ObamaCare Exchanges built by one of the 50 states. The law clearly made subsidies and tax credits unavailable in any state with an ObamaCare Exchange built by the federal government.

A ruling which found that “An Exchange established by the State” was indeed “An Exchange Established by the State” would of course make subsidies unavailable in the 34 States with an ObamaCare Exchange built by the Federal Government. Policy prices would not be competitive in 2/3rds of the nation and the Affordable Care Act would rapidly meet its demise.

But on Thursday, the Court’s decision was published and as many feared, the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that the clear language and intent of Congress were not acceptable to the Court as the clear language and intent of Congress. As Justice Scalia wrote in the dissent he shared with Justices Alito and Thomas, “…normal rules of interpretation seem always to yield to the overriding principle of the present Court: The Affordable Care Act MUST be saved.” (My Caps)

Justice Scalia’s dissent is one for the ages as he not so politely eviscerates the majority, for “The somersaults of statutory interpretation they have performed (‘penalty’ means tax…‘established by the State’ means not established by the State) will be cited by litigants endlessly, to the confusion of honest jurisprudence.”

For anyone not paying attention, Justice Scalia has just accused his colleagues of being dishonest. It is a statement beyond the simply critical of Justice Roberts and to a lesser degree, Justice Kennedy, as Scalia goes as far as he can in accusing both of malfeasance, corruption and, well, dishonesty.

The increasingly corrupt and pernicious purveyors of the legal system in the United States make predicting what should be the most straightforward of rulings virtually impossible. An irrepressible appetite to further a politically inspired agenda has replaced the Constitution as the foundation of American jurisprudence. Such a disgraceful and dangerous perversion of the most senior of American courts “…ignores the American people’s decision to give Congress “[a]ll legislative Powers” enumerated in the Constitution. Art. I, §1. They made Congress, not this Court, responsible for both making laws and mending them.”

But the Supreme Court, with Chief Justice Roberts in the lead, has twice “mended” the Affordable Care Act, improperly re-writing and willingly—shall it be called misinterpreting—both the text and the clearly presented desires of Congress.

America’s conservatives have lost the Supreme Court to the corruption and perversity of the left. As wanton dishonesty has replaced honor and integrity on the bench, it is difficult to imagine a time or means of returning the Court to an honest application of constitutional law.

ObamaCare Death Panels illegally withholding treatment from critically ill

by Doug Book,  editor

For three years the left have railed against Sarah Palin, ridiculing the former Governor’s claims of Death Panels operating within the Affordable Care Act.

But Sarah has at last been vindicated. The Oregon Health Authority (OHA)–the state agency which is bringing Oregon health plans into line with ObamaCare mandates–is promoting a guideline which states that “…treatment with intent to prolong survival is not a covered service for patients who have progressive metastatic cancer and are not able (in the view of the physician) to be helped. Palliative care is all that will be provided.” (1) (My italics)

Does anyone recall Barack’s classic moment in 2009 when he told a daughter whose 104 year old Mother was still enjoying life 5 years after getting a pacemaker that maybe Mama should have just taken a pain pill? Obama stated quite succinctly that it is just not worth spending money on the elderly. (2)

So it has all come to pass, just as Palin and others said it would. And incredibly, the Oregon Health Authority’s “let ’em die” guideline is in DIRECT CONFLICT with the written rules of the Affordable Care Act, “…which ensures health benefits may not be denied on the basis of expected length or quality of life.” (1)

But in a law filled with personal affronts to the liberty loving, perhaps the most palpably unconstitutional provision introduces the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), a group whose 15 members are selected exclusively by the president and whose stated purpose is the reduction of Medicare spending. Not only are Board members unelected, neither Congress nor any future president will have veto authority over recommended IPAB cuts unless they can obtain a super-majority (3/5ths) vote in the Senate, a majority in the House and the president’s signature! Failing these extraordinary requirements, all Board “suggestions” for the reduction of Medicare expense MUST go into effect immediately!

In short, the IPAB effectively wields more authority than Congress or the President! It is a thoroughly unconstitutional mix of corruption and tyrannical power for which the American people have the Democrat Party and Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to thank.

By the way, the Board’s expense reductions in medical care will naturally target seniors almost exclusively; that is, voters who favored even the weak Mitt Romney candidacy by a 56%-44% margin and often vote Republican by even wider margins in midterm election years. Just a coincidence, no doubt. (4)

But fortunately, Oregonians need not despair. For written into ObamaCare’s death panel guidelines is a codicil through which care to the critically ill might actually be provided. According to the Oregon Health Authority, “in order to qualify for treatment coverage, the patient must undergo a “discussion” and, evidently if he can prove he can live anyway, then he can get treatment.” (1)

In other words, if a patient can successfully convince the doctor who deemed the case hopeless that his diagnosis was WRONG, the patient can qualify for treatment! Get a doctor to admit before God–and more importantly, his colleagues–that he was wrong!

Now what could be more fair than that.

There is still a ray of light that Obamacare can be overturned

 

By Emma Karlin, staff writer

There IS a small ray of light shining up from the rubble of what is left of America. With Republican governors acting like – well Republicans and crawling back to lick Barack Obama’s boots, it IS hard to accept, but the fight against Obamacare is still on. The feckless and traitorous John Roberts may not have destroyed us after all. 

A lawsuit against the worst elements of Obamacare brought by Liberty Counsel, which has of course been ignored by the Democrat controlled media, has been set for a rehearing by the U.S. Supreme Court. It will be reheard in the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. Court observers describe this move as extremely rare and believe this means the matter will almost certainly find its way back up to the Supreme Court itself.

Acting on a Supreme Court directive Liberty Counsel, which is devoted to defending Christian civil rights, has filed a brief in defense of Liberty University. It has been green lighted to argue not only against the contraceptive/abortifacient mandate, but the employer mandate, the abortion mandate on religious institutions, and the individual abortion mandate. Moreover Liberty may argue against the entire Obamacare bill which could collapse it completely based on the indisputable fact that Robert’s pronouncement of it as a tax stands in direct conflict to constitutional law demanding that all spending bills originate in the House and not the Senate as happened.

The Liberty case University v. Geithner is the only one in the country challenging the entire employee mandate for all employers not just “recognized” religious institutions. It will now be able to argue against the violation of an individual’s right to  refuse to support abortion  and its related actions based on a personal moral revulsion to the murder of innocent babies.

Obama may be able to buy off the plaintiffs in other cases, but not this one. Roberts will have to explain how what he called a tax could have originated in the Senate.  There IS a small ray of hope of deliverance after all.

Obama eligibility challenge distributed by Chief Justice Roberts for conference before Supreme Court

by George Spelvin,  staff writer

A news release from Attorney Orly Taitz reveals Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has distributed for a February 15th conference of the Court, Taitz’s Obama eligibility challenge of Noonan et al v Bowen. (5) The February hearing of the Court is intended to decide the merits of Ms. Taitz’s challenge to Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of President.  The filed action will present evidence of the following:

1. Barack Obama used a last name not legally his

2. Obama permitted the use of a forged Selective Service application

3. Obama permitted the use of forged long form and short form birth certificates

4. Obama used a Connecticut social security number which was never assigned to him according to E-Verify and SSNUS (4)

Approximately 1 1/2 million INVALID California voter Registration forms are also mentioned in the Taitz brief which she brings on behalf of Applicants Noonan, Judd, MacLeran, and Taitz against Deborah Bowen, CA Secretary of State, No. 12A606.  If four of the Justices agree to move the case forward it will be assigned a hearing date available to the public on the Court’s official website.  “I am doing the best I can; I hope 4 will rule in my favor,” says Taitz.

“Obama’s ‘Forgerygate’ is 100 times bigger than Watergate,” says the attorney.   She calls out high ranking officials, US Attorneys, Attorney’s General and judges who allowed a “citizen of Indonesia and possibly still a citizen of Kenya, Barack Hussein Obama; aka Barack (Barry) Soebarkah; aka Barack (Barry) Soetoro to usurp the United States Presidency through the use of forged IDs and a stolen Social Security number!”   

After an earlier denial for a stay by Justice Anthony Kennedy, Taitz re-filed and submitted her case to Chief Justice Roberts on the day after Christmas.  She has endured ridicule and cruel insults from the mainstream media who refuse to take her seriously or provide an impartial interview. 

The establishment in national political, media and judicial circles have simply ignored valid concerns presented in over 150 eligibility cases.  Sheriff Joe Arpaio, his lead, Cold Case Posse investigator Mike Zullo and other researchers have been mocked, ridiculed and insulted time and again as irrefutable evidence was conveniently brushed aside over a 2 year period. Coach is Right has followed this case, presenting evidence gathered by researchers concerning the many Obama social security numbers, “inconsistencies” with the numbering of birth records by the State of Hawaii and the several examples of forged birth certificates posted online. 

Lucas D. Smith, a young man who spent his own money traveling to Kenya to obtain one birth certificate, filed a copy of that certificate while presenting it and a 7 page, notarized letter to each member of Congress in 2010.  These documents will be included in Ms. Taitz’s offerings to the Court. (2)

Tim Adams, a former Hawaii elections clerk signed an affidavit on January 20, 2011, swearing to the fact his supervisors told him no Long Form Birth Certificate for Barack Obama existed!  (3)

One 50 year old, single mother put the issue very succinctly at the Allen West voting protest last month when she said to the media present: “If you had vetted him properly, he wouldn’t be president.”  Prayers for Attorney Taitz, her clients and for the success of her case now are in order!
