So did the NSA. They saw you seeing it coming.

the judge noted the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and how the phone data-collection system could have helped investigators connect the dots before the attacks occurred. "

What a nimrod. All they had to do was answer the farking phone on 9/11 when the FBI was calling.
But, there were other plans.

It was already here the moment the "Patriot Act" was signed into law.  Why did nobody realize it then?

Take it to SCOTUS.
 
2013-12-27 01:04:22 PM
Of course a judge will do that.  The NSA has pictures of the judge with that goat back in '86
 
2013-12-27 01:04:32 PM
I'm okay with this.
 
2013-12-27 01:04:36 PM
Disappointing, but not surprising.

Oh, a Clinton appointee...

"Born in Glen Cove, New York, Pauley received an A.B. from Duke University in 1974 and a J.D. from Duke University School of Law in 1977. He was a law clerk, Office of the Nassau County Attorney, New York from 1977 to 1978. He was a Deputy county attorney of Nassau County Attorney' Office, New York in 1978. He was in private practice in New York City from 1978 to 1998. He was an Assistant counsel, New York State Assembly Minority Leader, New York from 1984 to 1998.
Pauley is a federal judge on the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Pauley was nominated by President Bill Clinton on May 21, 1998, to a seat vacated by Peter K. Leisure. He was confirmed by the United States Senate on October 21, 1998, and received his commission on October 22, 1998.
Among his notable decisions was that involving Ben-ami Kadish, a U.S. national who pleaded guilty to passing classified information to Israel."

LAUGHTER OL hard to figure out how this one will do the occurrence!
 
2013-12-27 01:05:18 PM
Just remember kiddies, you are supposed be so STUPID that this judge makes sense.
That is why they tell you this zhit.
They KNOW the audience.
 
2013-12-27 01:05:29 PM
Sure but if I start a blog called "What is U.S. District Judge William Pauley doing?" and follow him around and live tweet his day, I'll get arrested.
 
2013-12-27 01:05:38 PM
A couple weeks ago a different federal judge said the opposite.
 
2013-12-27 01:06:14 PM
I'm shocked that one corrupt branch of our government sided with another corrupt branch of our government.
 
2013-12-27 01:06:19 PM
TFA:   Pauley said the fact that the ACLU would never have learned about an order authorizing collection of telephony metadata related to its telephone numbers but for Snowden's disclosures added "another level of absurdity in this case."
"It cannot possibly be that lawbreaking conduct by a government contractor that reveals state secrets -- including the means and methods of intelligence gathering -- could frustrate Congress's intent. To hold otherwise would spawn mischief," he wrote
.

The government might have been doing something illegal, but because it was illegal for Snowden to reveal that fact, , no one can take action to investigate the possible illegality of the government's actions?  Bullshiat.

plenty of people did, you were called a traitor and a terrorist sympathizer for bringing it up though.

He ruled the bulk collection of metadata is lawful.

Kindly assplain "decision" when the perp pled out?

I miss the days when my first thought when seeing "NSA" was "No Strings Attached."

Who cares about the NSA and its spying activities.  The real news here is that the author of the article shares my not-common-at-all last name.

"That argument has no traction here. Because without all the data points, the government cannot be certain it connected the pertinent ones," he said.



Why does this judge hate America?

People who aren't bed wetting fascists giving the government controls that Hitler couldn't have dreamed of.  But this is a fascist country now so it's to be expected that idiots will embrace it
 
2013-12-27 01:08:38 PM
This is a good thing.  The sooner there is a circuit split the sooner this issue goes to the Supreme Court.

/Thank God for Edward Snowden.
 
2013-12-27 01:08:48 PM
good job with the newsflash, fark.

Now the NSA knows we're talking about them.

So, the government can freely watch you...

wont even be spying anymore eventually they will do random warrantless contraband house searches on the American people...

My mistake, I thought a judge would know there is a fourth amendment to the constitution.
 
2013-12-27 01:09:34 PM
If this goes before the SCOTUS, would it imperil the whole Patriot Act?

We could always call the third corrupt branch of our government.  Maybe they can help.

Sure will be fun when we can submit Freedom of Information Act to get the audio records of politicians phone calls.

/Until the NSA produces audio proof of a senator's sorted relationship with an underage boy, this will continue.
//One Senator made out to be the pedophile he is, and the NSA will be forced by congress to stop surveillance.

Uh, this argument can be used against any and all whistleblowing. And this asshole sits on the federal judiciary (appointed by Clinton).
