You and the Fourth Amendment – TOAST July 9, 2008

Why am I so upset about the Fourth Amendment? It is one of my favorite Amendments and I want to keep it intact. I do not want to be spied upon anymore than I already am. I do not want someone banging down my door in the middle of the night to see what is going on at Casa Lobo. I do not want to talk on the telephone and think some Government thug is listening in on me. Think I am nuts? Think I am paranoid? Watch today as the Senate (including Obama) votes to pass this awful legislation and watch as the telecoms celebrate tonight. My two Senators Schumer and Clinton are split on this vote. Schumer was going to vote against it as of June 25th. Has he changed his mind? I will be watching you Chuck. Schumer has already pissed me off with the nomination of Mukasey – let’s see what else he is up to today.

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

–  Watch Rachel Maddow as she substitutes for vacationing Keith Olbermann as she discusses the FISA bill with Constitutional Lawyer, Jonathan Turley on last night’s program.

The Fourth Amendment (Amendment IV) to the United States Constitution is one of the provisions included in the Bill of Rights. The Fourth Amendment guards against unreasonable searches and seizures, and was designed as a response to the controversial writs of assistance (a type of general search warrant), which were a significant factor behind the American Revolution. Toward that end, the amendment specifies that judicially sanctioned search and arrest warrants must be supported by probable cause and be limited in scope according to specific information supplied by a person (usually a peace officer) who has sworn by it and is therefore accountable to the issuing court.

–  Read and watch Senator Russ Feingold as he fights the good fight in opposition to this bill.
