You’ve no doubt heard that, today, the ACLU–and assorted other enemies of America–filed a lawsuit against the government for NSA “spying” (interesting that there was no such lawsuit when Bill Clinton was doing the same thing–Remember “Echelon” and “Carnivore”?).
Since the lawsuit was filed in U.S. Federal Court in the Eastern District of Michigan, where I practice, I’ve already been contacted by concerned U.S. citizens who wish to intervene in the case as interested parties (whose interests and welfare are affected by this case) in support of the government’s activities. And we may do so. You may feel free to contact me regarding this if you are interested in adding your name.
I note that among the Plaintiffs (besides HAMAS front-group CAIR) is Christopher Hitchens. Trotskyite Hitchens was scheduled to appear at a Republican Jewish Coalition event, tomorrow–until I and others protested this far-left wacko’s appearance.
The text of the Complaint is very similar to–and includes a lot of the same language–as the ACLU’s lawsuit against Section 215 of the Patriot Act, also filed in Detroit, in 2003. That case has NEVER been decided and languishes in the courtroom of Judge Denise Page Hood. The judge drawn by the ACLU, Anna Diggs Taylor, is a liberal judge, but not as liberal as several of the others they could have drawn (like Judges Arthur Tarnow and Avern Cohn–who decided in favor of Islamic terrorist Ibrahim Parlak; or Republican Appointee Gerald Rosen, who overturned the Detroit Terror Cell conviction–all while behaving unethically behind the scenes while the case was before him).
