It's been 18 months since We've asked for Donations, because we do NOT like asking for Donations.
But such as in Life, it's not always Peaches & Cream, or Royal Crown and Purple Haze Sativa!(I'm currently @ the Boone's Farm "Tickle Pink" & Mexican Dirt Weed level) Nobody likes doing the dirty work but it's necessary in order to rectify the problem it's creating. So the time has finally come, both to Save America's planned & engineered demise from these evil delusional globalists and their cast of Pathetic Puppets, AND also to help 12160.info continue to be a daily part of contributing to feeding the Truth and "What's really going Down" to Hungry & Awake Minds. All we ask is for whatever a Deplorable Debt Slave, can afford to throw into our meager "basket" for monthly/yearly expenses 2$, 5$, 25$ $200 will all be appreciated with equal enthusiasm.. We will always be sincere, & eternally grateful with ANY amount,
Thank You & Take Care to you & yours! Good Luck to Everyone in the next couple scary, unpredictable, upcoming weeks! Who knows what these Sinister, Soulless Criminal Bastards will do? And you know they are going to do SOMETHING! They are petrified and unbelievably desperate right now. They smell their demise and are not sitting down for it. Like Venomous Vipers backed into a corner.
We could be in for one helluva Spooky Be-all, end-all, All Hallow's Eve,"Trick".....or maybe a well deserved "Treat"?? Let's pray for the cooler, rational heads overseas & abroad to prevail so a WW3 excuse can't be manufactured by Obozo,"The Impostor Usurper" Sotero and his Cheery Choom gang of Chumps, Thieves, Liars & Transtesticles. Then focus on putting the Criminal Clinton Mafia Family where they truly belong, .....In A Federal Prison on Death Row, awaiting an Execution Date from indictments including Espionage,Treason, Collusion, Bribery, & Turncoat Communist Traitors to name a few! By then the Bush clan and the yellow-bellied cowards they are, will have all left to their vast acreage retreat in South America, Good riddance, and Don't let the door hit ya in the ass on the way out!
Long Live Our Republic!
THANK YOU !!

In yet another move proving the Obama administration is far from the most transparent in history, it has now told a federal judge that disclosing a secret opinion on the government illegally spying on Americans could likely cause “exceptionally grave and serious damage to the national security.”
This came in response to a lawsuit that would force the disclosure of an opinion by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, the court that oversees the warrantless wiretapping program which the White House claims is immune to lawsuits.
This court authorized every single request from the government in 2011 and when documents related to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) were recently requested through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), those who requested them received documents that were almost entirely redacted.
According to Senator Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, the FISA court found “on at least one occasion” that the government’s “minimization procedures” used while conducting surveillance breached he Fourth Amendment. Now that ruling is being sought out.
In this latest attempt to avoid having to actually be transparent, the Obama administration said that the disclosure of that secret opinion would implicate “classified intelligence sources and methods” and thus, “The government has determined that disclosure of the information withheld from Plaintiff could result in exceptionally grave and serious damage to the national security.”
The ruling was sought by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) as part of a FOIA request which has now become a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia after the government rejected their request.
When it comes to the government’s claims about the disclosure of the opinion, Jacqueline Coleman Snead, a senior Justice Department counsel, said the EFF “obviously cannot contend otherwise.”
If this information was released, it could shed light on the entire current surveillance program under the 2008 FISA Amendments Act that legalized the Bush-era warrantless wiretapping program which began soon after September 11, 2001.
Currently, the FISA Amendments Act gives the government the ability to conduct e-mail and telephone surveillance on a massive scale within the United States without probable cause warrants.
All the government has to do is claim that the people or groups targeted are “reasonably believed to be located outside the United States to acquire foreign intelligence information.”
“In other words, the government can collect e-mails and phone calls in the United States so long as the target is a suspected terrorist group overseas,” explains David Kravets. “If the government collects e-mails that are sent by people believed to be American, the person’s identity is supposed to be given a pseudonym or ‘minimized.’”
The glaring problem is that since the rulings are secret, it’s impossible to know just how restricted this type of surveillance is and given what Wyden said last year, we can safely assume it’s not carried out in the manner we might hope for.
The government wants to keep the opinions secret because, according to Kravets, “the FISA Amendments Act generally requires the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to rubber-stamp terror-related electronic surveillance requests.”
Under the law, the government doesn’t even have to directly identify the target of the surveillance or the facility to be monitored.
The surveillance can begin an entire week before the government even makes the request, and keep in mind the vast majority of those requests, in some years all of them, are approved.
In the incredibly rare case that the court rejects a government surveillance application, the surveillance can actually continue during the entire appeals process.
