4th Amendment R.I.P.

Bush signs bill overhauling eavesdropping rules: yahoo

WASHINGTON - President Bush signed a bill Thursday that overhauls rules about government eavesdropping and grants immunity to telecommunications companies that helped the U.S. spy on Americans in suspected terrorism cases.
Note below the bolded phrase "judicially sanctioned". With the passage of this bill judicial sanction is no longer necessary to 'spy' on private citizens, and that is the key to understanding the significance of this surveillance bill. The 4th amendment has had it's legs cut out from under it.
It's open season on homelanders, and to those who are paying attention, you are witnessing firsthand the ongoing demise of this nation-state and what can only be interpreted as the rise of the totalitarian 'brave new 666 world'. Understand
from wikipedia:

"The Fourth Amendment (Amendment IV) to the United States Constitution is one of the provisions included in the Bill of Rights. The Fourth Amendment guards against unreasonable searches and seizures, and was designed as a response to the controversial writs of assistance (a type of general search warrant), which were a significant factor behind the American Revolution. Toward that end, the amendment specifies that judicially sanctioned search and arrest warrants must be supported by probable cause and be limited in scope according to specific information supplied by a person (usually a peace officer) who has sworn by it and is therefore accountable to the issuing court."
compare: aclu statement (the ACLU is mounting a legal challenge reportedly)
quote: "The FISA Amendments Act nearly eviscerates oversight of government surveillance by allowing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to review only general procedures for spying rather than individual warrants. The FISC will not be told any specifics about who will actually be wiretapped, thereby undercutting any meaningful role for the court and violating the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable search and seizure."
“With one vote, Congress has strengthened the executive branch, weakened the judiciary and rendered itself irrelevant,” said Caroline Fredrickson, Director of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office.
