Dimensio: HotWingConspiracy: Dimensio: HotWingConspiracy: Dimensio: HotWingConspiracy: Wingchild: dittybopper: She was perfectly fine with the US government violating the constitutional rights of US citizens:

Seconded. That's Dianne "I'm angry because I'm the chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and this shouldn't happen to me" Feinstein. She gives no farks about citizen rights and never has. She is pissed because she wasn't exempt.

You understand that this has nothing to do with her personally being spied on, right?

You are correct; Senator Feinstein is not so self-centered as to believe herself the only individual in the country who should be exempt from spying operations.

She believes that anyone in the privileged position of the United States Congress should be immune to surveillance.

I'm not so sure she said that. I mean, this isn't metadata. The allegation is they were actively farking with an investigation. You're ok with this because OMG Feinstein?

You are confusing a recognition of Senator Feinstein's hypocrisy with approval.

I'm ok with whatever gets her on board. Maybe this will prompt her to reconsider past decisions.

Senator Feinstein has established a history of opposing civil liberties, while simultaneously enjoying those liberties herself. Your defense of her is not likely to entice her to engage in sexual intercourse with you.


But I fap on webcam every night in the hope that her spies will see it.

And she said that the CIA appears to have violated the Fourth Amendment, which bars unreasonable searches and seizures, as well as various federal laws and a presidential executive order that prevents the agency from conducting domestic searches and surveillance.

hasty ambush: [irregulartimes.com image 500x509]


He did all that.  The wiretaps are legal now.  Nobody has to bother with the national security letters to spy on someone.  And they're not tracking protesters specifically anymore, since they're covered by the whole "spying on everyone, everywhere, all the time" that goes on now.

Yeah, she's cool with violating our 2nd Amendment  just as long as she can keep her CCW permit.


Really? No one's gonna take this one? Diane Feinstein had previously carried a weapon when the New World Liberation Front was trying to assassinate her. There was a bomb planted outside her house and people were shooting out the windows in hour house. Almost NO ONE lives under this type of threat and I think it's pretty understandable that someone in that situation would want to carry a gun. That DOES NOT mean that is a good public policy for everyone to be carrying guns.

I think it was about the time that she was holding Harvey Milk as he bled to death that she decided that carrying a gun wasn't worth it. I think it was when she was identifying the bodies of George Moscone and Milk that she started to get some inspiration to lead for some meaningful gun control. Maybe.

Or you could just simplify it and call her a hypocrite, but don't you think you are leaving out 2 or 3 details?

Actually considering the computers were the CIAs I am not so sure what DiFi is being pissy about. She is mad that they search computers that belong to the CIA. So the CIA searched CIA property on loan to DiFi and her committee. So it isn't OMG they broke in to our computers !!!!!. It is they searched computers for illegal documents that belonged to them.

No, just no. And I'm not sure you understand how an investigation works. It doesn't at any point involve the people being investigated remotely blocking access to documents pertinent to the investigation.

the argument as I understand it is that the document was never supposed to be transferred to them in the first place so the CIA went to see if they transferred it by mistake. If that was the case and they were acting to "secure" data that wasn't supposed to have been given to the committee. I don't see what the problem is ?

How is it any different than trying to "secure" flash drives that Greenwalds husband was traveling with ? After all this docu ...


Man, for someone that appears to dislike CIA/NSA spying, you're pretty eager to parrot their press release.

OgreMagi: zepher: Gotta love hypocrites like this old biatch.
First she uses her influence to obtain a CCW and then makes it a part of her personal agenda to deny that same right to the 'little people'.
Then she votes for establishing the NSA and for ever increasing domestic spying and then she biatches when that same spying then targets the ruling elite.

I can't wait to dance on this old bag's grave.

A nice tidbit on the CCW of hers.  At one time, there were exactly two CCWs in the entire city of San Francisco.  They belonged to Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer - two of the loudest anti-gunners in all of Congress.

Side note.  I won't celebrate their deaths.  I just won't give a shiat.


Aaaaaannndd now we see what all the DiFi hate is really about.  Took longer than I expected.

SnakeLee: dj_spanmaster: Well, look at all those knee-jerk "DON'T YOU JUST LOVE BEING SURVEILLED AT HOME, FEINSTEIN!" commenters. I'm really hoping you're all just parodying idiots, but frankly it's hard to tell.

I know, some of them are even quoting the article.  Are they on the side then of the CIA and think they should be able to use enhanced interrogation techniques and then delete files off of Senators' computers when they start an investigation on it?  There are a whole lot of people in this thread that need to stop breathing out of their mouths for a minute, put the Monster energy down and actually read what this is about.


Yeah, they seem to think this is hitting Feinstein personally when the reality is an out of control arm of the executive just potentially got busted spying on another branch of government in an effort to cover up crimes.

The US Government violating a US citizens Constitutional rights is OK with you? Really? How 'bout if it's YOUR civil rights, next?

Feinstein WANTS it to be your civil rights, just not hers. She's one of the big proponents of this kind of thing. She is scum, so when it happens to her I will take some time to point and laugh before pointing out why this is a good reason to oppose everything she stands for.


Wait until she finds out they bugged the star chamber.

Why aren't you like that?  Why aren't we like that?  Because we are crazy driven, hard working surveillers - that's why.  Those other countries think we are nuts. "
