Is there legal recourse when NSA perverts spy on you naked?

In this episode of the Rare Report...

Do you want the NSA looking at your naked body? Americans are fed up with the NSA–but are they ready to do something about it? Have we reached a tipping point? What legal grounds do we have against federal workers who pass around nude pics of us and our loved ones?

Is it government’s job to tell you what we should eat, drink, smoke and think? Shopping carts with Michele Obama telling food stamp recipients what healthy foods to buy? Is this for real? Should government control what they–or you–buy?

Can you be a conservative without being a libertarian? Establishment Republicans are attacking libertarian conservatives like Rand Paul and Justin Amash every chance they get. But can you even be a conservative without, to some degree, being a libertarian? We take a hard look at the definition of conservatism and it’s future.

Conservative: a person or action in favor of saving money, tradition, the status quo or a situation in the past (when varies). A tendency toward prevention of change.

Liberal: a person or action in favor of generosity, cultural curiosity and sharing, and a natural tendency to change.

The irony is that liberals travel the world and learn new languages so they can enjoy the cultures (food, dress, ideas) being kept alive by conservatives in other places.

Conservatives, on the other hand, while universally bemoaning their teenagers' hairstyles and wishing they were more respectful of tradition, are preserving completely different traditions from each other. Religious conservatives may be Christian, Muslim, etc., and their styles of dress and diet may be completely different. To complicate things further, conservatives may be conserving values from today, a generation ago, or from some point in history like the American Revolution. (No wonder they're fragmented.)

The species would not survive without some of both.

Libertarians and Authoritarians can be either liberal or conservative or some of both. The only question is whether or not they think they have the authority to use force to enforce their values. Statists are authoritarians who want to use government force.

These laws are a start...

42 USC §1983. Civil action for deprivation of rights

Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer's judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable. For the purposes of this section, any Act of Congress applicable exclusively to the District of Columbia shall be considered to be a statute of the District of Columbia.

42 USC §1985. Conspiracy to interfere with civil rights

I'm not completely sure how it works, but I've read that anyone can file a civil lawsuit and that person can collect attorney's fees after the fact because it is in the public good.


See What the government is Spending?

Consider "Child Pornography..."

I am a high school math teacher. And at my school, we had an assembly for the students, some local court workers came in to give a speech to the young students; the local judge was the main speaker.

The judge gave a speech to the kids letting them know HOW SERIOUS AND WHAT SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES would result for certain actions. The judge explained that "If a girl or boy shares a picture of himself or herself and that picture is on your phone... THEN YOU ARE PARTICIPATING IN CHILD PORNOGRAPHY, even if you yourself are a child, or if you are 17 and she is 15 or 16."

So this IS THE STANDARD THAT WE CLAIM TO HOLD EVEN FOR LITTLE CHILDREN that are knowingly innocent and naive.

But for college educated adults with experience and fancy suits; well we can give them a pass right? <--- sarcasm

There should

be legal recourse! I'm from the older generation and had difficulty allowing my husband to see my naked body! If I ever had to fly, I'd go into a panic attack, for sure! BAST**DS

Recently, Michelle (?) Obama 'joined' with Monsanto to push kids to eat "HEALTHY GMO"!! Is there such a thing as "healthy GMO"? http://dailyleak.org/2014/07/michelle-obama-teaming-up-with-...

EDIT TO ADD: The Michelle Obama/Monsanto story is a HOAX! I checked it out at a few places--all agreed, yet a hoax it is! I don't know about you, but I am enraged at our bought-and-paid-for media. If they did their job, we wouldn't have to spend so much time double-and-triple-checking stories, looking for the veracity thereof! Do any of us know, unless we were there, just what is and isn't truth anymore???

I want the NSA to see me naked

Maybe it'll shock some sense into them..

The answer to your question is....

NO. Who are you going to complain to?

LOL at that thumbnail picture.

(I sees what I sees)

deacon's picture

I hadn't noticed

Was there a thumbnail? ;)

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Too funny...didn't notice

Too funny...didn't notice that until i read your comment.
