It appears O'really is really

concerned about them reading his emails? He's probably worried about being blackmailed by the content, which he should be. Now, with Rand, he still wants to compromise our rights for security, even though he is raising 'some' concerns. Why doesn't any politician who claims to be for fighting terrorism, and raising concerns about the intrusions of our Liberty, ever raise the question 'How can we honestly state we are protection our country when our borders are vitrually unprotected. When these elected officials state we need these types of measures to protect us from terrorism, why do they never strongly mention the need to secure our borders from invaders? In fact, most of those who support these liberty destroying measures used on American citizens, are the largest opposers of making our border secure? Using common sense, if we are really trying to protect America, the first plan of action should have been protecting our borders, before we even thought about using these anti-Bill of Rights measures on our people.' Now, why have you never heard any of the so-called defenders of the Constitution, and supporters of fighting the 'war on terror' state this menial common sensical plan of action? Because, they are as in the radio-hacks and/or pundits, paid misdirectors, and with the politicians, corporate controlled collectivists jockeying for power and the riches that will result.
The difference between Ron and Rand is, that Ron compromised with liberal/progressives to defend our Liberty, Rand on the other hand, compromises our Liberty to get along with his party. Ron could easily defend his comprimise by stating his job is to defend the Constitution. With Rand, he has to explain why he is willing to compromise the Constitution while supporting the Globalist agenda. Rand appears to have taken a Liberty stand on the 4th Amendment, but I am waiting to see if he makes another hope killing statement like he did with the 'drone and the liquor store robber'?

O'Reilly's jes' a regular guy

O'Reilly's jes' a regular guy tryin' ta get all dis straightened out.

At least that seems to be the part he's been assigned.

Get it clear...

the NSA data mining is NOT about catching so-called terrorist. That is some secondary motive. It is about collecting the data on someone, everyone, profiling and categorizing them. No one government person is probably going to be pouring over information on an individual, unless the big eye of Sauron happens to focus in on them. However the 1.5 billion $ computer will analyze, sort and categorize individuals in a nano-second.
THIS ABOUT IDENTIFYING POLITICAL DISSIDENTS, PERIOD! For instance you could be sorted BY THE 1.5 BILLION $ COMPUTER into numbers, say a 1 thru 5. Ones being the elite (some gov. officials etc of no threat, theoretically). Twos, the rest of government. Threes, army, military security personel (they can always be a loose cannon). Fours, Ron Paul/Liberty supporters. Fives, out right militia group, subversive, preppers... blah blah. Remember the COMPUTER is programmed to sort everyone into one of these groups. Does anyone REALLY believe this much money and man power is being spent on a handful of pissed-off people that are willing to do something about their anger. If every Al-Quad member was assembled, they could be put in a large banquet hall. So give me a break (not going to happen).

God forgives always. Man forgives sometimes. But Nature never forgives.

When Oreilly asked him about what we know, Rand should

have said, what do you know? Since your are the press that missed the boat on LIBOR, and all other scandals, what exactly do you know about this, and why are you asking someone who like most Americans have been kept in the dark...

Always remember:
"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds." ~ Samuel Adams
If they hate us for our freedom, they must LOVE us now....

Stay IRATE, remain TIRELESS, an

Ha ha ha ... this whole blowup has exposed the fraud...

You can't have your cake and eat it to, O'Riddley!

Either Snowdon is an idiot seeking fame and fortune from the media coverage... because everything he is saying is false... in which case ignore him!

Or, it is true!

Can't have it both ways... deny the allegations, and at the same time call him a traitor!

Well.. maybe there is a third... they want people to think it might be true; and they want us to hear what they do to whistle-blowers; and they want whistle-blowers to clam up; and they want to dampen the communication of truth through fear... and probably the biggest reason... to distract from the IRS who are now on their heels under attack, and to distract from the FED renewal!

That has been the real tactic of disinformation and propaganda for centuries!

Orwell would be shocked to find out his book was not really Sci-Fi!

Why ...

did I click on this piece of sheet O'Reilly?

We have DOCUMENTS you fum duck!

O'Reilly is a buffoon

HE doesn't know what they are doing with the info either?!!!

And we just saw proof (the IRS) of another government organization that used information against innocent Americans.

So why would be inclined to believe that the NSA is any different?

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul


(Of course) O'Reilly seems ready to take the government at their word that the content of the calls is not being saved... but simply wants Rand to 'check'... and sit through more lies in (closed) hearings.

Besides the fact that the answer is right here:

We can KNOW that this 'no content' claim is absurd on its FACE:
(credit to Mike Rivero / http://whatreallyhappened.com/)

"Let's try a simple calculation. Every day there are three billion phone calls made in the United States. Let us stipulate that the meta-data for that phone call takes 1 kilobyte of data. That is actually a lot, but let's assume the government is being their usual inefficient selves.

To save the metadata for every single phone call going back to the start of this system would take 3 billion calls per day times 1 kilobyte, times 365 days per year, times 7 years. That works out to storage of 7.6 quadrillion bytes of data. Yet it has been announced that the NSA's facility in Utah has a data capacity of a Septillion bytes of data. That is 1,000,000,000 times as much storage than they need for just the meta-data! Even for the government, that is a huge waste, if they are not saving the content of the calls.
The average length of a telephone call in the United States is 3:15. Sampled at 8000 cps, that creates an mp3 files under 200 Kbytes in size. Together with the meta-data, let's round it up to an even 200K for simplicity sake. Times 3 billion phone calls per day, times 365 days per year, times 7 years, yields a storage requirement for all those saved phone calls of 1,533,000,000,000,000,000 bytes of data. That is 1.5 Quintillion. If we expand it to every phone call in the whole world for every day for those last 7 years, that comes to 6.2 Quintillion bytes needed. Let's add 20% overhead for indexing and organization, and we get 7.4 Quintillion bytes of data.

Even THIS is still just a tiny fraction of the advertised Septillion size of the Utah facility.

There is no question the Utah facility has the capability of saving every single phone call made in the world for the last seven years, with lots and lots of room for something else as well. We may presume that this septillion-sized data center is close to being full, because NSA has started construction on an additional center in Maryland."

Great points goldenequity

O'Reilly was desperately seeking Rand to say something like

"As far as what I've understood according to what the media has been reporting is that only foreign emails are being gathered and inspected."

Rand did very well at avoiding that trap.

Yes, Bill seems quite nervous about the emails.

Perhaps he has sent some that he doesn't want to be made public? We can only dream about that!!!

O'Reilly harasses his female interns & employees

No doubt some of that was via email and text. So yea, he would be concerned if a court or the police had access:

Thanks my friend

Thanks for the 'all important' first bump.
