I know none of you have any reason to be worried about your phone call activity, but this is a HUGE overstep on the Obama administration's part. He is completely ignoring the Fourth Amendment, which prohibits the government from unreasonable search and seizure.

During the Bush administration, right after September 11, 2001, people were up in arms over this type of unwarranted intrusion - and that was right after that attack.

Why is Obama doing this to innocent people?

This is even more alarming because Obama just appointed Susan Rice as his new National Security Agency director. Susan Rice, as you may remember, was the point person during the Benghazi coverup that went out on all the Sunday news shows putting out the false and misleading story that the Benghazi attack - which took place on the 11th anniversary of September 11, 2001 - was not a terrorist attack but the result of muslims reacting to a youtube video that no one had even heard of. 

The producer of the anti-Islam youtube video that didn't cause Benghazi still remains in prison after the Obama administration had police drag him out of his house during the middle of the night. 

The NSA has been collecting the phone data of all Verizon customers anywhere inside the U.S. since at least April 25, according to a newly leaked top secret order from the U.S. government’s spy court.
WASHINGTON (AP) - The National Security Agency has been collecting the telephone records of millions of U.S. customers of Verizon under a top secret court order, according to a report in Britain's Guardian newspaper.
The order was granted by the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court on April 25 and is good until July 19, the newspaper reported Wednesday. The order requires Verizon, one of the nation's largest telecommunications companies, on an "ongoing, daily basis" to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the U.S. and between the U.S. and other countries.
The newspaper said the document, a copy of which it had obtained, shows for the first time that under the Obama administration the communication records of millions of U.S. citizens were being collected indiscriminately and in bulk, regardless of whether they were suspected of any wrongdoing.
The Associated Press could not authenticate the order because documents from the court are classified.
Verizon spokesman Ed McFadden said Wednesday the company had no comment. The White House declined comment and referred questions to the NSA. The NSA had no immediate comment.
Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) listed 121 million customers in its first-quarter earnings report this April - 98.9 million wireless customers, 11.7 million residential phone lines and about 10 million commercial lines. The court order didn't specify which type of phone customers' records were being tracked.
Under the terms of the order, the phone numbers of both parties on a call are handed over, as are location data, call duration, unique identifiers, and the time and duration of all calls. The contents of the conversation itself are not covered, The Guardian said.
The broad, unlimited nature of the records being handed over to the NSA is unusual. FISA court orders typically direct the production of records pertaining to a specific named target suspected of being an agent of a terrorist group or foreign state, or a finite set of individually named targets. NSA warrantless wiretapping during the George W. Bush administration after the 9/11 attacks was very controversial.
The FISA court order, signed by Judge Roger Vinson, compelled Verizon to provide the NSA with electronic copies of "all call detail records or telephony metadata created by Verizon for communications between the United States and abroad" or "wholly within the United States, including local telephone calls," The Guardian said.
The law on which the order explicitly relies is the "business records" provision of the USA Patriot Act.
