    House Amendment to stop NSA domestic spying only gets 205 votes, congress more dispised than ever

    The house failed to end one of the most egregious breaches of trust and liberty put in place by the Patriot Act by 205-217, the creation of broad domestic spying powers given to the NSA.

    A few dozen democrats voted against an amendment restricting the ability of the NSA to data mine innocent Americans, but most of the support for NSA spying came from Republicans, a majority of whom still support.

    Meanwhile the republican led congress hit an all-time low disapproval with 12% of Americans supporting the reckless cause, with more than half of Americans saying they want an entirely new congress.

    Obama is also suffering in the polls as a result of his own and congresses inaction to do anything.

    Vote them all out sentiment even higher than when Democrats controlled the house.

    I do not think that the Amash/Conyers Amendment to the DoD Appropriations Bill had a real chance of ultimately becoming law. (I tweeted, emailed and called my Representative, who did vote in its favor.) However, it did expose the shakiness of the Administration's position on surveillance practices.

    There are many avenues remaining.

    Supporting the Leahy Amendment in the Senate is one. I am sure there will be other amendments offered. I am sure Senator Wyden will continue to be heard.

    Supporting the groups bringing legal actions on these concerns is also important. I speak of the ACLU and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. These lawsuits are passing their first legal challenges.

    For a recent recap of the legal efforts, see: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013...ges-tech-firms

    It is well to remember that the Pompeo Amendment, while not as sweeping as Amash/Conyers, passed overwhelmingly.

    The amendment that passed is reportedly intended to "ensure none of the funds may be used by the NSA to target a U.S. person or acquire and store the content of a U.S. person's communications, including phone calls and e-mails."
    The pertinent part of the Pompeo Amendment:

    None of funds made available by this Act may be used by the National Security Agency to-

    (1) conduct an acquisition pursuant to section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 for the purpose of targeting a United States person; or

    (2) acquire, monitor, or store the contents (as such term is defined in section 2510(8) of title 18, United States Code) of any electronic communication of a United States person from a provider of electronic communication services to the public pursuant to section 501 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978.
