Great to see there are still some Politicians standing up and fighting for Americans. Big Kudos to Rand Paul on this one.


Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is leading a class-action lawsuit with hundreds of thousands of Americans against President Barack Obama’s National Security Agency (NSA) over its spying on the American people.

Sen. Paul will be discussing the lawsuit in an exclusive appearance on Fox News with host Eric Bolling at 10 PM ET on Friday. Breitbart News has learned that Paul will file the class action lawsuit soon in the D.C. District Court and that he will be filing it as an individual, not as a U.S. Senator. For a U.S. Senator to file a such a class action lawsuit against the President of the United States would be extremely rare.

This lawsuit allows the American people to join together in a grassroots manner against President Obama’s NSA with a sitting U.S. Senator at the helm. Two prior class action lawsuits were filed in June. Classes have not yet been certified in those cases.

The focus of the lawsuit will be how the NSA's actions violate the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution. The lawsuit will target the NSA’s metadata program.

The class action suit from Sen. Paul against the president comes on the heels of two different conflicting court rulings in individual suits against the NSA, with one court ruling that the NSA was within its bounds to spy on Americans shortly after a different court ruled the NSA’s actions were unconstitutional. The conflicting decisions all but guarantee an eventual Supreme Court-level case on the matter.

I love him to death. What you see is what you get. I've said this on both sides of the aisle. Up here we had a man Jack Layton who was so far polar opposite of my political beliefs but he was honest. He was trustworthy. He wasn't shilling just to get into office and rip off the public.

He was the real deal. So even though he was absolutely positively the opposite of me, I could respect him and his wonderful wife Olivia. They had passion, they cared, they believed.

Jack's passed now, but his legacy "truth in politics" will remain. I think this is why I am so drawn Rand.
He's the real deal.

By the time this hits The Supreme Court it will be wholly-owned subsidiary of The one-person Executive Branch so there will be no purpose in proceeding.

A warm place with no memory.
The NSA issue is but one of at least a dozen that this suit could contain.
