While those on the L…
While those on the Left rage on

It continues to amaze me that anyone can continue to justify this crap. We have a President, and an administration that continues to defecate on the Constitution and people who are suppossed to be SUPER Patriots, continue to act as apologist for it. Sorry guys, this one definately does not pass the smell test, and as more details become available, and more constitutional lawyers, NOT HACKS weigh in on the matter, it looks worse and worse…billripped.jpg

I am going to ask the question again, and I am sure it will be ignored by the trolls who respond to this post… WHERE does Bush’s powers as a “War Time President,” end?

Drudge puts it all in perspective.



Bill Clinton Signed Executive Order that allowed Attorney General to do searches without court approval

Clinton, February 9, 1995: “The Attorney General is authorized to approve physical searches, without a court order”

Jimmy Carter Signed Executive Order on May 23, 1979: “Attorney General is authorized to approve electronic surveillance to acquire foreign intelligence information without a court order.”

WASH POST, July 15, 1994: Extend not only to searches of the homes of U.S. citizens but also — in the delicate words of a Justice Department official — to “places where you wouldn’t find or would be unlikely to find information involving a U.S. citizen… would allow the government to use classified electronic surveillance techniques, such as infrared sensors to observe people inside their homes, without a court order.”

Deputy Attorney General Jamie S. Gorelick, the Clinton administration believes the president “has inherent authority to conduct warrantless searches for foreign intelligence purposes.”

Secret searches and wiretaps of Aldrich Ames’s office and home in June and October 1993, both without a federal warrant.

The Left’s outrage has to take this into consideration. Bush’s EO dealt with phone calls to foreign countries from people who were in a terrorists little black book (and cell phone and computer). Clinton’s even extended to solely domestic locations. Their outrage over this EO and the Plame affair would just begin to have a shred of credibility if they were just as outraged then as they are now.

But I’ll bet most of them were happy when Ames was captured.
