Ron Paul Asks "If Spying On Senate Is So Bad, Why Is It OK For Them To Spy On Us?"

Tyler Durden's picture


Submitted by Ron Paul of The Ron Paul Institute,

The reaction of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to last week’s revelations that the CIA secretly searched Senate Intelligence Committee computers reveals much about what the elites in government think about the rest of us. “Spy on thee, but not on me!”
The hypocrisy of Sen. Feinstein is astounding. She is the biggest backer of the NSA spying on the rest of us, but when the tables are turned and her staff is the target she becomes irate. But there is more to it than that. There is an attitude in Washington that the laws Congress passes do not apply to Members. They can trample our civil liberties, they believe, but it should never affect their own freedom.
Remember that much of this started when politicians rushed to past the PATRIOT Act after 9/11. Those of us who warned that such new powers granted to the state would be used against us someday were criticized as alarmist and worse. The violations happened just as we warned, but when political leaders discovered the breach of our civil liberties they did nothing about it. It was not until whistleblowers like Edward Snowden and others informed us of the abuses that the “debate” over surveillance that President Obama claimed to welcome could even begin to take place! Left to politicians like Dianne Feinstein, Mike Rogers, and President Obama, we would never have that debate because we would not know.
Washington does not care about our privacy. When serious violations are discovered they most often rush to protect the status quo instead of defending the Constitution. Senator Feinstein did just that as the NSA spying revelations began to create pressure on the Intelligence Community. Her NSA reform legislation was nothing but a smokescreen: under the guise of “reform” it would have codified in law the violations already taking place. When that fact became too obvious to deny, the Senate was forced to let the legislation die in the committee.
What is interesting, and buried in the accusations and denials, is that the alleged CIA monitoring was over an expected 6,000 page Senate Intelligence Committee report on the shameful and un-American recent CIA history of torture at the “gulag archipelago” of secret prisons it set up across the world after the attacks of 9/11. We can understand why the CIA might have been afraid of that information getting out.
When CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou exposed the CIA’s role in torturing prisoners he was sent to prison for nearly three years. But Senator Feinstein and her colleagues didn’t lift a finger to support him. So again you have the double standards and hypocrisy.
The essence of this problem has to do with the difficulty in managing the US empire. When the government behaves as an empire rather than as a republic, lying to the rest of us is permissible. They spy on everybody because they don’t trust anybody. The answer is obvious: rein in the CIA; remove its authority to conduct these kinds of covert actions. Rein in government. Lawmakers should not defend Fourth Amendment rights only when their staffs have been violated. They should do it all the time for all of us. The people’s branch of government must stand up for the people. Let’s hope that Sen. Feinstein has had her wake-up call and will now finally start defending the rest of us against a government that increasingly sees us as the enemy.

Dianne Feinstein wants drones regulated     

 (for you and me of course, NOT the state)

“I’m in my home and there’s a demonstration out front, and I go to peek out the window and there’s a drone facing me,” she recalled.

“When is a drone picture a benefit to society? When does it become stalking? When does it invade privacy? How close to a home can a drone go?” Feinstein said, listing questions she would like to see answered in the complex regulation process.

“I’m in my home and there’s a demonstration out front, and I go to peek out the window and there’s a drone facing me,” she recalled.

The Senate (Including Rand Paul) Vote to Extend $9 Billion in Loan Guarantees for the Benefit of Israel

"Have you heard about the the 'United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012'? It was introduced by Senator Barbara Boxer on 3/6/12 with 71 Cosponsors."

"The U.S. Senate passed their version on Friday June 29, 2012. Known in the Senate as S.2165, the measure guaranteed an astonishing $9 billion dollars in loans to Israel (plus all fees and interest!) in addition to giving 'military assistance- stockpiles of defense articles' valued at $200 million for 2013 and $200 million for 2014."

"Confirming Rand Paul's support of this bill was Senator Johnny Isakson of Georgia, who said 'I am very pleased that this important piece of legislation passed quickly and unanimously in the Senate today, demonstrating the United States' strong, unwavering commitment to Israel and its security and self-defense.'"

The answer of course was that "Some pigs are more equal than others".

I wish our "AIPAC" leaders , would just do away with WASH-DC, then we could just watch TV and see Tel-Aviv 24/7 like Truman-Show.


All politicians KNOW they are being spied on, and they're all spying on each other, the situation here is that US senate was trying to spy on the CIA, and the CIA was spying on the Senate Spy's. The outrage here is that NSA/CIA has a 'monopoly' on SPYING, and the US Senate doesn't see it that way.

The US senate has its own private police force, called the 'capital police' trained snipers, with one mission, to protect SENATOR ASS.


remember navy yard shooting? they were training at the site, they wanted to take the 'shooter' down, they were ordered by command "STAND DOWN", .. why? Because resources, most resources in WASH-DC are only in place to protect POLITICIANS.

Everyday it becomes more clear that the US is a fascist, police state run by the Pentagon/CIA/NSA mafia and Obama is just as complicit in these continuing violations of the constitution:

The speech delivered Tuesday on the Senate floor by Senator Dianne Feinstein provides clear and direct evidence of crimes against the US Constitution and the democratic rights of the American people, implicating top officials of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the White House, up to and including the president. Feinstein’s allegations of CIA intimidation, obstruction and spying on the Senate Intelligence Committee, which she chairs, constitute “high crimes and misdemeanors,” the constitutional basis for impeachment.

Feinstein has longstanding and close ties to the intelligence agencies, which she has categorically defended throughout the months of exposures of illegal spying by the National Security Agency. Yet on Tuesday she gave an hour-long speech in which she charged the CIA with spying on and withholding documents from Congress as part of an attempted cover-up of the program of torture the agency carried out under President George W. Bush.

In the course of her remarks, she provided a detailed narrative of the CIA’s criminal actions, including the attempt by CIA Director John Brennan to intimidate the Senate Intelligence Committee and derail its investigation into the Bush-era crimes by accusing committee staffers of stealing classified documents and demanding that the Justice Department launch a criminal investigation. (Brennan, as director of counter-terrorism under Bush, is implicated in the torture program.)

The portrait that emerges is of an intelligence agency that operates outside of all legal constraints, rejects any genuine congressional oversight, and functions as a law unto itself.

The haste with which the US media has moved to bury Feinstein’s remarks—which it has generally ascribed to a mere “turf war” between the Senate and the CIA—is itself an indication of the fundamental nature of the crimes outlined by the senator and the complicity of the corporate-controlled media in those crimes.

Feinstein and Rogers are co-conspirators with the NSA in violating our rights guaranteed under the Constitution, while acting under the color of law. This is both a criminal and civil litigation issue. If Rand Paul or another would make this a campaign issue, there might be help for our republic. This is the real civil rights issue of the 2010's. All the laws are in place, only the courage to use them and campaign on them appear lacking.

Don't count on any help from Frankenstein.   I complained to her about the phoney 50, the 50 acts of terror the NSA spying supposedly thwarted.  When the list was revealed as a fraud I wrote to her with a request she stop lying to her constituents.  I was amazed at her response, again defending the 50 acts as if she didn't even regard my comments.

Abenomics aside, at least the Japanese still carry out Hari Kari, and old war criminals still occasionally insert a round into their grey matter...but...American kikes...are beyond shameless, despicable, rotten-to-the-fucking-core cowards.

I don't know how these hypocrites, sadducees, and pharisees actually live with themselves, within their own skins and within their own minds.

My hands may get dirty, but my soul stays clean.  Does that mean I've never screwed up?  I have, but my mistakes get dealt with internally until I have made peace with myself and in the public sphere or privately when I have wronged my loved ones, I (no matter how begrudging or difficult it is) always have and always will admit and own up to my mistakes.  I have always wrighted my wrongs and always made recompense for any damage I have caused.

These bastards need to learn the meaning of atonement.  They need to come clean.  These soulless fucks KNOW the damage they have wrought, and it is time their soulds are cleansed whether they do it themselves or if others have to do it for them...

Answer: They want to know who and how may have figured out that they are nothing more than a syndicate of thieving and murdering criminals that must wage war against us, treason, to maintain themselves.

If Senator Feinstein's staffers had illegal possession of top secret documents, indict the staffers.  Let America's kangaroo court system handle the intelligence matter.  The prosecution can give the staffers a plea deal, turn state's evidence against Feinstein and they get a pass.

I dont think Diane Frankenstein is hypocrtical. Her behavior is typical of the elites and that betrays a much deeper problem. She obviously sincerely believe that she and her elite collagues are above the rest of us and they desrve to be treated differently. They are there to rule, not to be ruled. Therefore they relate to the rest of us like human relate to cattles.

Let’s hope that Sen. Feinstein has had her wake-up call and will now finally start defending the rest of us against a government that increasingly sees us as the enemy.



Never gonna fucking happen, unless the NSA is totally dismantled and gotten rid of. They are way outta control and purposefully trampling the bill of rights and the constitution! Feinstein needs to be hung along with the rest of this fucking criminal administration. FUCK THEM ALL!

The colonials had Adams, Franklin, Washington, Paine, Jefferson...

We have Feinstein, the golfing Kenyan, McCain, Holder, Mr. Ed...

They had geniuses, and we have profoundly corrupt two-digit IQs.

We voted these cocksuckers into office, and we are responsible.

I hate to pile-on but WTF.

The problem with hope is... when the Day is truly lost (and it is), it becomes the perpetuator of despair of the soul.

In what way is Feinstein not the poster girl for Marie Antoinette and the Noble class around her?

This is not some unconscious accident on her part, which can be revisited and corrected.

She is distinctly aware there are Rights and Justice for Nobility and the Political Donor Class, and whatever crumbs of it which fall to the ground, are for the Under-Class masses to fight over.

The Decision was passed without debate, nor vote. And it is final.

The longer hope remains, the longer We will wait and do nothing about it.

Right now, today, We need to understand that We are the ones we are waiting for.

Diane Feinstein was born on June 22, 1933.

She is 80 years old.  Be nice to her, she doesn't have much time left on earth and it is not good to be unkind towards another human being.

Unkind words that hurt should never be used, they always do more harm than good.

Just remember that the next time you have something to say, always make it something good.

There is a place on this earth for Senator Feinstein, but that place hasn't been dug yet.

We can all say something nice about her when that time comes.

Until, then, she can go straight to hell.

Great post, but you could have gone further. Why not make the CIA answerable to the American public and task them with spying on politicians to make sure they do not cheat, lie and steal like the current bunch do.

"The hypocrisy of Sen. Feinstein is astounding."  Awww, c'mon.  This is the same miserable scrunt that lectures all of us on gun control, all while insisting on her very own CCW permit in San Francisco.  Fuck her.

One of my biggest concerns about the NSA spying on Americans centered on how much was being spent. It recently came out thanks to information leaked by  Edward Snowden that the "black budget" last year was a massive 52 billion dollars. This is the money used in "secret" spy operations.

This sends shivers down the back of those that have read about the totalitarian society of Oceania described in George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. In Orwell's novel, all citizens of Oceania are monitored by cameras and are fed fabricated news stories by the government. More on this subject in the article below.

Also, there is evidently trouble in paradise.

The Neocons and the Liberal Progressives are both ensconced, but now cannot agree on the way forward. So they start to feed on one another.

under the guise of “reform” it would have codified in law the violations already taking place.

Kind of like when the Fed was created. I guess Feinstein learned from the masters.

If you caught the episode of 60 Minutes last Sunday, you also saw Dianne Feinstein ramping up efforts for government regulation and control of privately owned drones for personal use. Of course, she’s all in favor of the government using them for anything they can dream up. Because, you see, she just has to watch out for us all.

Dianne Feinstein = Big Mother (or is that Big Motha?).
