The Catch Up Thread For 9/27/10: Civil Liberties Hell Week Continues (Updated: ABC Reports Emmanuel To Leave Administration This Week)

Here's what has transpired since this site was last active:
The fallout continues from the Obama Administration horrendous decision to dismiss the ACLU/CCR lawsuit to virtually kill whoever they want in this country without facing any repercussions.

The Administration is now to the right of even the most extreme Bush loving, executive power craven advocate in David Rivkin with their choice.

And now today, wiretapping what you talk about with your friends on AIM and Twitter is their next goal:
Federal law enforcement and national security officials are preparing to seek sweeping new regulations for the Internet, arguing that their ability to wiretap criminal and terrorism suspects is “going dark” as people increasingly communicate online instead of by telephone.

Essentially, officials want Congress to require all services that enable communications — including encrypted e-mail transmitters like BlackBerry, social networking Web sites like Facebook and software that allows direct “peer to peer” messaging like Skype — to be technically capable of complying if served with a wiretap order. The mandate would include being able to intercept and unscramble encrypted messages.
Okay, the wiretapping you and your friends claim is a little exaggerated. Unless of course, you don't somehow end up on the government's bad list, no matter if you are a justified baddie or, you know, a peace activist.

Al Grayson has clearly gotten under these nutcases' skin:

And Webster's wife comes out of nowhere to defend the clown that she virtually serves under. Those submissive wives certainly are loyal, aren't they?

I take it this Ben Sharpio clown doesn't have much diversity in his group of friends.

If you haven't gotten familiar with him in his short time of being a fresh face in the House of Lords, you can certainly get familiar with how he is emerging as the next corporate lobbyist tied Democrat who hates to look at common sense over his priorities:
Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska) might use Sen. Mary Landrieu’s (D-La.) playbook to force the White House to clarify its policy on oil-and-gas drilling off his state’s coast, telling reporters he hasn’t ruled out blocking an administration nominee over the issue.

“I will use whatever means necessary to get them to respond to this. All we are asking for is a very simple thing: Tell us what the rules are and give us a timetable. That is not complicated,” Begich said Monday after testifying before a presidential commission probing the BP oil spill.

Landrieu is blocking a Senate vote to confirm Jacob Lew as White House budget chief until the federal ban on deepwater oil-and-gas drilling is lifted or modified.
Democrats blocking the Democratic President's nominee. They sure are corporate puppets, aren't they? Nice of Begich to learn from Landrieu of all prominent lobbyist loving Democrats.

Alice Revlin really is a monster.

Well, what a surprise!

And really, nothing else prominent from the dysfunctional political landscape in this country from today.

Update: And just breaking, that man almost everyone loves to loathe, Rahm Emmanuel, looks to be leaving this week's staff.
