Citizen Know Nothing (1854)
The court "embraced the Protect America Act of 2007, which required telecommunications providers to assist the government for national security purposes in intercepting international phone calls and e-mails to and from points overseas." The 2007 Act protects Americans from knowing anything which might give them dyspepsia, should they not already be dosed with candy-colored Tums and proton pump inhibitors.
Any why is it we even have a 4th Amendment? Are any issues worthy of Supreme Court review?
The 4th Amendment provides citizens protection from governmental intrusions; it has nothing to do with time sensitive or national security interests. But the FISA court ruling nicely eviscerates the citizen protection aspect of the amendment.
Another civil right inverted to serve the desires for covertness of the ersatz servants [= government], rather than the need for transparency of their employees [= citizens.]
