…to the Constitution of the United States. At least if it’s written here you know the NSA will read it.

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.

There is no way that indiscriminate domestic surveillance, data “collection”, whatever without a warrant can be considered lawful.

A whole host of reasons

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has a whole host of reasons why she doesn’t use email.

“I don’t have any of my own accounts,” she told a cybersecurity conference hosted by National Journal. “I’m very secure.”

Asked if her reasons for sticking to other forms of communication had to do with concerns about email security, she hedged and said she avoids email for “a whole host of reasons.”

Charlotte B-cycle

Use ‘bike share’ to get to Bank of America Stadium to hear those big speeches!

I think the purpose of these bike-share programs in Dems’ convention cities is to divert attention from the sudden proliferation of high-tech surveillance.

Just in time for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte next month, the city has started offering a bicycle-sharing program that it says is the largest in the Southeast. Charlotte B-cycle, part of the Wisconsin-based B-cycle national network, comprises 200 commuter-style bicycles at 20 stations uptown (Charlotte’s downtown) and nearby. Most of the stops are near bus, shuttle and light-rail stops.

The Denver Drone

On Monday, the pilot of a corporate jet, a Cessna Citation 525 CJ1, was flying over Denver on Monday after coming in from Wichita, Kansas, according to CNN affiliate KUSA.

The pilot made a radio transmission to air traffic control about the object, KUSA reported, citing

“A remote-controlled aircraft, or what, but something just went by the other way. … About 20 to 30 seconds ago, and it was like a large remote-controlled aircraft,” the pilot said.

Droning on

Hopefully these new drone fleets will restore America to its former greatness.

Yeah you read that right — “across the U.S.”
