One of the most famous examples of warrantless searches in recent years was the investigation of CIA official Aldrich H. Ames, who ultimately pleaded guilty to spying for the former Soviet Union. That case was largely built upon secret searches of Ames' home and office in 1993, conducted without federal warrants.
In 1994, President Clinton expanded the use of warrantless searches to entirely domestic situations with no foreign intelligence value whatsoever. In a radio address promoting a crime-fighting bill, Mr. Clinton discussed a new policy to conduct warrantless searches in highly violent public housing projects.
You can't really blame Clinton for that those
Yeah, but Bush is Hitler so its different. Trying to avoid terrorist attack is culturally insensitive and creeping fascism. Keeping an eye on restive darkies is just good clean government in action.
Warrantless searches are not "culturally insensitive," they are a violation of FEDERAL LAW, namely THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION. The Supreme Court has found exemptions to the Warrant requirment," exigent circumstances" and the "automobile exemptio"n etc., otherwise such searches are illegal and unlawful.
This law is in place to police the government. One would think a Republican like you would get this.
First of all, it is disturbing that you use that awful language...
Secondly, I believe that you have claimed previously to support libretarians or was that a fantasy to be replaced with Bushetarian.. Do you believe that they support these searches!.. Would you be inclined to be on the recievership of such searchs..
Thirdy, obviously in unusual instances many laws have been runover in order to do the right thing; does that mean the basic laws have to be modified because few instances were justified because they were extraordinary in nature.
But anyways, I believe that the first ones that are going to cry foul will be the right-wing themselves.. just watch.. They cant even swalow gun control.
Lets roll it in...
the attempt to excuse warrantless searches on a vast scale, as now being practised by this administration, is simply propaganda in favor of a fascist America. There are in this administration many proto-fascists who would like to do away with the freedoms and civil protections we enjoy on the excuse of a phony "crisis" as Hitler did in 1934 with the Reichstag fire. And many Americans are too intellectually confused to understand this move to destroy US democracy and the liberties of the citizenry. They are perfect dupes for the fascisization of America. It is interesting that in the past the Jews would have been the first to scream to this, especially if it had been directed toward Jews in Left wing parties or Communist parties. But now Zionist Jews have turned sharp right and support the fascist moves of this administration since it does the bidding of Israel.
