without a warrant. There’s a much lower standard, to obtain a “trap and trace” PEN register, court order in order to snoop the meta data and even more from your cell phones.
The IRS is one of 13 federal agencies which can set up a device which acts as a fake cell phone tower to siphon off data from your phones.
According to the Guardian, police departments in 20 states also have this ability.
Meanwhile, the IRS is continuing to refuse non-profit status to TEA party groups. The Obama Justice Department has let Lois Lerner off the hook for denying such status to hundreds of such groups beginning in 2009.
Please ask your congress-critter to further defund the IRS until this problem is rectified.
Gloria Steinem as been spotted on CBS This Morning, in full throated whine about the status of Feminism in America, by Jeffrey Meyer of MRC Newsbusters. Most of what is killing the religion of feminism is the “elitist” priesthood of feminazis, who made abortion a major tenet and sacrament, as Mr. Meyer correctly highlights. This group even endorsed sex selective culling of the unborn because of their screed that abortion, regardless of reason, should be legal. (And Gloria wonders why the numbers of women are now less than men.)
Let’s not forget that the industry of selling woman as sex slaves relies on abortion for maintenance of the “product”, and the abortionists readily agreed to provide cover, as they have for domestic abuse.
Is it a coincidence that, in the U.S., the numbers of abortions are dropping as feminism crumbles?
Abortion has also been a large part of what made LIBERAL a dirty word. The other parts are socialism and support for illegal immigration. The leftist Atheists seem unable to understand that they top the radical Islamist list for death, (even above Christians, Jews and Gays). They’re either clueless or suicidal.
The basic problem with feminism and liberalism is that they both are contrary to the survival of humanity as a species.
The cognitive dissonance in Gloria’s mind ought to be deafening by now.
…which had previously been blocked from publication by a Judge. The National Abortion Federation had requested a Federal Court to block videos which had been taken at their conference, with the claim that it violated confidentiality agreements. The information had been subpoenaed by the Congressional committee investigating Planned Parenthood, and at least parts of the material have been leaked by congressional staffer(s) and placed on YouTube.
There is at least one person in Washington DC with a concience.
Update 10-23-15: A blogger, Charles C. Johnson and a hacker, Andrew “Weev” Auernheimer, are credited with disseminating the blocked Planned Parenthood videos. Neither are said to be worried about legal repercussions.
