The judge agrees with the ACLU in wanting us all dead.

My thoughts? Ok. An idiot judge is easy to find.

Wonder how much shopping the ACLU did to find this one?

Thoughts?

Does this mean the government system that tracks my every financial transaction, and compels me to testify to such details, is also unconstitutional? Bye bye IRS?

They just scanned their membership list.

Since the judge's district is Detroit, don't do any wiretapping from Detroit. Do it from Fort Meade, where it's supposed to be done.

Or ignore the judge.

Seriously: start spending some serious resources out counterintelligence to find the traitors who are leaking this classified information, give them a fair trial, and have them shot (after conviction).

Response to a previous post about this. I thought this was pertinent.

But even if Taylor harpoons the spying program, experts said, the decision likely would be overturned by the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. "Given the composition of the 6th Circuit and its previous rulings in related areas, it seems more likely to favor national security over civil liberties if that issue is squarely presented," said Carl Tobias, a law professor at the University of Richmond in Virginia. "And that's what this case is all about."

I've noticed in surfing, that most of the headlines say "Judge Nixes NSA Wiretaps", NOT "Judge Nixes "Warrantless NSA" Wire Taps."

Says a lot about the DBM, doesn't it? Mustn't let the sheeple get the wrong idea.

As Rush just covered, this is also the judge who attempted to hijack the UM Law School affirmative action case and join it in class action to the undergraduate case. Fortunately, the actual judge in the case was able to checkmate her on this.

Yes.
Impeach the judge. No court on the planet has the authority to stop us from intercepting international email/phone calls.
But Bush/Congressional Repubs lacks the balls to do that.

Call together the ACLU membership and shoot them for treason.
Wait, we can't do that, heck, taxpayers PAY them to use the courts to destroy the country!!

Of course, the GOP could use this to make every anti-war Democrat look like a complete fool, with what just happened in England. But don't expect it, the GOP seems to lack the balls to do something like that. I bet right now some scumbag Repub is meeting with a scumbag Dem to discuss how this ruling "shouldn't be politicized".

Liberal judges are the tools of tyrants, the Democratic party are the tyrants, the MSM are the agitators for the tyrants, and yellow bellied and opportunistic Republicans are their lapdogs (all the while pretending to be the guard dogs of the Republic).

Where are the true, couragious conservatives? Oh yeah, they are so slandered and hammered by our press that they cannot get elected.

She was appointed in 1979, so it would have had to have been Carter.

Not to be terribly racist or sexist, but who would have guessed that the traitor in question would be a 2-fer on the affermative action scale?

It's a hard one to call - the media makes this out to be a spy program on Americans, but the targets were overseas (which the NSA has probably been scanning for decades).

My concern about a lot of this type of stuff, is a liberal getting in the White House and expanding this or that anti-terrorist measure just a little more, to the point where they begin to listen in on calls that originate and terminate within the physical borders of the US, without warranties - i.e., you, me, and everybody else.

I don't care anymore. Let tens of thousands of us die in American cities before the inevitable move must be made.
