FISA Update 05May2008

Posted by Realist on May 5, 2008 – 11:32 pm

Please sign the ACLU petition. They provide some good tips, when calling your rep, or others:
When you call, be sure to mention that you are a constituent (as applies) calling about FISA, and ask your rep to do these three things:

  • Reject backroom deals on telecom immunity. Lawsuits may be our only chance to expose the truth about illegal spying activities by telecom companies and the Bush administration.
  • Reject backroom deals that steal our freedom and undermine the rule of law in reaction to election year fear-mongering. A bill with real judicial review and no telecom immunity should be the floor, not the ceiling of negotiations
  • Reject backroom deals that give Bush new powers to spy on Americans without a warrant.

And they also ask that you: Please also call House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer at (202) 225-3130, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at (202) 225-0100 or (202) 225-4965. They need to know that as leaders in the House, voters expect them to:

  • Reject any compromise with telecom immunity. Lawsuits may be our only chance to expose the truth about illegal spying activities by telecom companies and the Bush administration.
  • Reject Bush’s election year fear-mongering. A bill with real judicial review and no telecom immunity should be the floor, not the ceiling of negotiations.

As I may have stated before, sometimes it’s easier to get a fax through than a phone call, but whatever you can manage would be great. More here at FDL.

And do what Mentis said. Please.

    I can SOOOOO not believe that this is even still going on! The law should have been respected as soon as the crimes were exposed. Basicly we are now in a situation where for the past 6 years our Congress has knowingly and actively been protecting felony criminals whose main intent is the overthrow of the US government in order to install their nasty sickly neo-con fascist rule. If I wasn’t well aware that it is exactly what they would like so they can institute their Martial Law plans I’d start popping any one I knew that supported this treason. It is very well known that there have been literally hundreds and maybe even thousands of felony crimes committed by this administration. It is also well known that every single one of those crimes made America weaker, less free, and less secure. And yet Congress has totally ignored their sworn duty to prevent this treason! Who have they really held accountable for any of this multitude of crimes? No one! And don’t even mention Libby to me! That was just a lame show trial for the rubes that didn’t even begin to go after the ringleaders of that particular act of treason.
