    FBI chief urges restoration of searches without warrants
    Besides the fact that you already know what I think of this wanker and his fear-mongering (they're still trotting out the Christmas 2009 Crotch Bomber!), may I just say that I find it unbearably pretentious to use a "III" or even a "II" after one's name.

    like multiple false flags, from FBI agents that stirred hapless idiots with no brains, supplying them with everything then "busting them"

    Well, Mr. Mueller (the THIRD), answer me this: If this act is so all fired good and does so much to help "federal authorities" catch those ebol teowwists, why didn't they catch Mr. Underoos #1 before he got on the plane? Betcha can't answer that one, doofus!:p

    He said the law allows the collection of vital information about international terrorists “while providing a robust protection for the civil liberties and privacy of Americans.”

    Did he say this out loud while looking in a mirror? Without laughing?

    Who even believes statements like that?

    Once again these lyrics come to mind:
    Chain, chain, chain,
    Chain of fools
    -- Aretha Franklin​

    I was thinking more like Queen - Another one bites the dust.

    If you change the phrase in bold to "a rube's protection" then it would be a true statement.

    Who even believes statements like that? Millions of Americans. "Anything For Safety."

    I guess I don't see how taking away the privacy protections (the warrant requirement) in the Fourth Amendment, somehow provides "robust protection for the civil liberties and privacy of Americans."

    The warrant itself doesn't exactly provide any protection. Judges tend to sign anything a cop puts in front of them.
