Secret court approves three more months of NSA phone snooping
The secret court that oversees the nationâ€™s intelligence activities renewed its approval of the National Security Agencyâ€™s telephone-records program on Friday, granting the government a new three-month window to collect data on all Americansâ€™ phone calls.
Director of National Intelligence James Clapperâ€™s office announced the courtâ€™s ruling in a statement, though officials didnâ€™t make the ruling itself public, saying it was going through declassification procedures.
The decision marks the 36th time the program has been approved by the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court....
Jdha America is under the wrath of God (Rom 1:19-3) we wanted a king like the other nations, so here is Saul America is not headed for judgement, it has been judged. I guess I will be heard on my phone affirming Jesus as King and not caesar and they will come get me. Hope God will encourage me to rejoice for being counted worthy to suffer but as for this world, I won't miss it one bit when I see Christ

Yes. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court was established for the sole purpose of giving a veneer of legality to illegal government operations. It hasn't refused government requests, but having it in place gives the false appearance of going through the Constitutional system. Note this from the article:
"The decision marks the 36th time the program has been approved by the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court."
This "court" doesn't consider anything, it just approves. That's all it was designed to do.
