A battle is brewing on Capitol Hill over a seemingly small change to federal hacking powers that critics say will authorize sweeping government surveillance. Unless Congress moves by December to block the change, judges will be allowed to grant a single warrant for multiple electronic searches in different locations — even when investigators don’t know the physical location of a device. The fight is being waged against the backdrop of a massive government hack into one of the largest child pornography sites on the dark Web. A judge in Massachusetts has already thrown out evidence in a case against users of the site, because without the proposed change, U.S. District Judge William Young ruled, the warrant the government used to search users’ computers was invalid. The case underscores the stakes for the Justice Department, which has been quietly campaigning for the amendment for years. But the stakes are equally high for opponents of the change. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), who is expected to introduce legislation blocking the proposal next week, has blasted the warrant proposal as a "sprawling expansion of government surveillance." At issue is a criminal procedure rule known as Rule 41 that governs search and seizure. In the physical world, prosecutors must seek search warrants in the jurisdiction in which a search is carried out. They'll lie to you to say this is to get people like terrorist and child predators, when they won't tell you what they really want. Who the government really wants to get their hands on are whistle blowers like Edward Snowden, and people on social media and news sources that don't go along with the political agenda of Big Brother. They will use fear mongering to get you to adapt to new ideas, when those new ideas will do nothing but silence the first amendment of We The People. The government has been doing this since the 50's, to get Americans to fear things to give up their liberties so that the government can keep taps on We The People.
