You don’t have to be a lawyer to understand the plain english of the bill of rights. The US torture/assassination luciferian state has abandoned all pretense of law. You could see this coming 25 years ago when it was revealed that the secret government was torturing and murdering nuns, priests and school teachers in latin america. Of course no one was even charged, much less prosecuted for obeying GHW Bush’s orders. And now they’re licking their chops over the impending domestic operations. This bill will make it that much easier for them. The nazis didn’t lose WWII, they only went underground.
RT 19 Dec, 2015 – President Barack Obama signed a $1.1 trillion spending package which bankrolls the government through next year. While it includes tax breaks for low-wage earners, it also includes a controversial cybersecurity measure slipped in during negotiations.
The omnibus spending package was signed into law on Friday afternoon.
“There’s some things in there that I don’t like, but that’s the nature of legislation and compromise, and I think the system worked,” the president said at his year-end news conference at the White House, reported the Associated Press. “It was a good win.”
The legislation pairs two enormous bills: the $1.1 trillion government-wide spending measure to fund every federal agency through next September, and a $680 billion tax package. …
As part of the budget negotiation, Obama also signed into law a large cybersecurity bill, which has been flogged by opponents as an expansion of government surveillance. Labeled the Cybersecurity Act of 2015, it is actually a combination of three bills passed by Congress over the year, including the often-criticized Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 (CISA).
The new law authorizes companies to share information about cyber threats with “any federal entity.” Any company participating in the data sharing would be immune from consumer lawsuits. Once the Department of Homeland Security has all the pertinent details, they could be passed along to the FBI and NSA for further investigation and, potentially, legal action. …
Wyden said the latest CISA bill contains fewer oversight and reporting provisions than the Senate version did, and this means that violations of Americans’ privacy will go unnoticed. He added the bill strips authority from the independent watchdog on government surveillance, the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, and makes it easier, especially for the CIA, to refuse to cooperate with the Board’s investigations.
