DiFi draws a line “now it affects me!”

For years there have been few more reliable excuse makers for the intelligence agencies snooping into your life than Dianne Feinstein. For example, two weeks ago.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) offered a full-throated defense of the government’s collection of data on billions of American phone calls, saying Wednesday that the National Security Agency’s practices have safeguarded the nation without trampling on civil liberties.

Boo hoo Mr. and Ms. Non-Dianne Feinstein, your privacy concerns matter not when it comes to amorphous undocumented threats to our security…in perpetuity.

But when spying gets too close to DiFi, well things are somehow different yesterday.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) accused the CIA on Tuesday of illegally searching her committee’s computers to find an internal CIA review of Bush-era interrogation policies…

Feinstein also said the search may have “violated the Fourth Amendment,” which prohibits unreasonable government searches.

Here’s a thought, maybe both acts violate the Fourth Amendment?

Maybe if Dianne Feinstein cared more about the Fourth Amendment’s protections for ordinary citizens, she wouldn’t be in a position to complain about being treated like one of them?

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
