Hour 2: Sen. Rand Paul’s Filibuster on PATRIOT Act Extension – May 20, 2015
Senator Rand Paul
John Napier Tye goes on to warn us. He says unlike section 215 [of the Patriot Act], Executive Order 12333 authorizes collection of the content of communications, not just metadata. Even for U.S. Citizens. So quite often we’re told that — we were told for years don’t worry, they’re not collecting your data, they’re just collecting the data of foreigners. Turns out that wasn’t true.
Now the big thing they tell us is, well, we’re not collecting the content, we’re just collecting the numbers. But when you read John Napier Tye, the Executive Order authorizes the content of the communications as well, not just metadata and also for U.S. persons. So the question is, if we get rid of pulling collection will the executive continue to do it anyway? The other question is, why doesn’t the Executive stop this? It was started by Executive Action, it could be ended by Executive Action at any time.

If you wanted to put together all of the relationships of everybody in the world on metadata relations… then you could do that and store it in a room 20 foot by 40 foot”
(video) NSA Whistleblower William Binney: How NSA Lies to US — “They keep saying they don’t build profiles of people. No they don’t. The software does. They have the profile on everybody. They play all kinds of word games with people” • They have the keys to hack encryption software • Uploading to iCloud? Assume the NSA collects everything
Joel Skousen: Is there a path to winning back America? No, I think we’ve past the point of no return — “Religion is not leading to righteousness … this callous disregard for the ‘still small voice’ leads to bigger problems and worse decisions”
