Blinding Big Brother

Down with Big Brother! Help us end blanket NSA spying on all Americans Retweet

At issue: Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals review of Jewel v. NSA!

Our so-called government spies on us. They admit they grab all emails, internet searches and phone calls without a warrant or probable cause. We even know the precise building where all the data gets funneled in San Francisco. The Fourth Amendment forbids such actions, but get this…

The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California ruled that the Fourth Amendment didn’t apply in this case because the searches were too generalized. Any injuries were shared in equal measure by all citizens! This made it constitutionally okay!

By this reasoning, the government could commit mass murder, as long as nearly everyone was killed in equal measure!

The last time someone tried such universal spying (outside of Big Brother in 1984) it was the British Empire. Their General Warrants helped spark the American Revolution. Is it time for Round 2?

We filed a brief in this case before (as well as a brief in a related case).

We think our work helped persuade the Ninth District Court of Appeals to review the District Court decision in Jewel v. NSA. We want to file another brief to hopefully end blanket NSA spying on the American people.

Will you fund this amicus brief?
