Time to bring up to speed on the news I'll have more on this a federal judge's ruling on the NSA. When we come back on the other side to it. Let's take a break for that then right back -- more here the body Mac show. Why then we'll go on this Monday. On WORG. One of sixty. -- that would be doctor John. They need. -- -- I -- goofy but it has in the right place and less -- the home and home. Then there done that -- group. So. Content in regard to this federal like court. They're ruling today and it's this judge. Ruling that the NSA program collects information on nearly all telephone calls made to from or within the United States. Is unconstitutional. I do. When I when I mention that of the -- the program almost immediately I got a text message to send well Bobbie you know even a broken watch -- Correct at least twice today that's true. You know but it's nice it's reassuring to know that there's at least at one judge in the US district court. Who recognizes. Them that if it walks like a -- and and quacks like a duck it's probably a duck that would be unconstitutional. The story from where's this from the this is from Fox News. A federal judge ruled today that the NSA program which collects information on nearly all telephone calls made to from or within the US is likely. Unconstitutional. US district court judge Richard we on can we replaced John Roberts who this guy today. US district court judge Richard Leon found that the program appears to violate the Fourth Amendment ban. On unreasonable searches and seizures. We're just one I've said from the beginning even though I'm not a constitutional attorney. But I can read the thing for myself. The founders' document some effort. He also said the Justice Department had failed to demonstrate that collecting the information had helped to head off terrorist attacks. Excellent point. Acting on a lawsuit brought by conservative legal activist Larry claimant. Who has been a guest on this program on multiple occasions we on issued a preliminary injunction barring the NSA from collecting so called metadata. Pertaining to the Verizon accounts of claimant and one of his clients however the judge stayed the order to allow for an appeal. Guys you know that. The DOJ is gonna and immediately appeal listening holder. Who's. Violated the constitution itself. Panel will will appeal it. I cannot imagine a more indiscriminate and arbitrary invasion. Then this systematic and high tech collection and retention of personal data on virtually every single citizen. For purposes of querying it and analyzing it without judicial approval. -- judge to Leon an appointee of president George W. Bush while -- go left. Now the president is well just walk. The preliminary injunction the judge granted today does not requiring to make a definitive ruling on the constitutional questions in the case. But does take into account but does take account rather of which side he believes is more likely to prevail. We -- 68 page opinion is the first significant legal setback. For the NSA surveillance program since it was disclosed in June in new stories based on leaks from former NSA contractor Edwards -- For seven years they metadata program has been approved repeatedly by numerous judges on the fives accord that's them. Foreign intelligence surveillance court. And found constitutional by at least one judge sitting in a criminal case. The Justice Department persuaded those courts and the collection of information on the time and length -- calls as well as the numbers called. Did not amount to a search under the Fourth Amendment. Because that information is routinely available to telephone companies were billing purposes and he shared -- those firms voluntarily. Government lawyers and judges who found the NSA program legal. Pointed to a in 1979 Supreme Court ruling Smith will vs Maryland which found no search warrant was needed by police to install a device. Which recorded the numbers dialed on a particular phone line but. We unsaid that's the judge in this case Leon said the three decade old precedent. Was not applicable to a program like the NSA's. Because of its sophistication. And because telephone news has become far more intense. In recent years. Up at a hearing last month the judge that he knew that his decision would be far from the last word on the issue which is almost certain to wind up at the Supreme Court. However he added some flair to his opinion today. Referring and one point to The Beatles. And add another two Federalist papers author James Madison. Surely the judge wrote such a program infringes on that degree of privacy that the founders enshrined in the Fourth Amendment. Indeed I have little doubt. -- the author of our constitution James Madison who cautioned us to go where. The bridge -- of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power. Would be a guest. The judge -- You write your honor. Former president Madison would again. That sound you hear in fact -- in spinning in his grave all the the spending is slowing following the court decision today. 341 now it's nineteen minutes before four. It's. When. And and. It wrong preachers and -- like this when the little river band in the background the reminiscing. 34614. People and 4 o'clock and Johnson timing here for. During the holidays past.

What he attempted to do was unsuccessful. In as much the fault of the Republicans as it was the progressives and Liberal Democrats. If he is registered. On the radar of even those that are just you know give me a six pack and now let me watch a ballgame. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Appreciate that well I am not I hope I'll viewing your family do as well enough. But the war the war goes well the war goes out. It's a coming up on 35010 minutes before -- take a quick break here and then they -- back with more on the body Mac show Monday Monday edition. Why the local on WORD 106 theory. Steel drums we're. -- barge rhythm of the night. Now playing. About four minutes away from new downtown -- Early. Kind of it's painfully ironic. -- one of my all time favorite films is Lawrence of Arabia stirring up Peter -- and Omar Sharif and and that. -- I have -- -- recorded. I have the -- restored. Version recorded and I'll I'll go and just every so often you watch them on my favorite scenes from it. And -- there was. It was all well. -- action on a Saturday. And I decided to go in them and bring it up and wash and I watched two or three scenes. From Martha Maria which is an amazing film David Lean. Put together did bridge on the requirement the baton -- the house anyway. What shortly after that that the next day yesterday and Eleanor Peter O'Toole and passed away at the age of 81. And and it that they got me thinking about what -- and one amazing film. That is and what a tremendous job he did he was and tons of films of course Goodbye, Mr. Chips played a king Henry the second in Beckett and The Lion in Winter. They played he was great SAL larger than life film director in the stunt man if you've never seen that that's good. And he played the swashbuckling actor in my favor a year which is a great company. The 1962. Film the Lawrence of Arabia what's considered David -- masterpiece. Possibly the greatest debut -- performance by any screen actor in history. Given the young Peter O'Toole -- flax in Maine and sky blue eyes. No coward is said to have her march to -- Peter O'Toole if you did any prettier it would have been Florence -- But -- was that Peter -- is actually much taller than -- but. It just had a stellar career here's one of the -- of the one of the first scenes. Where we see the reaction between now to a panel characters in the film Peter O'Toole as audience. And Omar Sharif as sheriff -- That was and it did it and jumped and it would. -- My name is among them. None of my friends is a bit at a. So long as the act like fight against -- So Long Will they be a little people. -- Philly -- Greedy to bother us that true. -- -- -- As an amazing film. I saw an interview that Peter O'Toole did a year or so ago where he he talked about how difficult it was to make that film. And it is still if you if you had never seen Lawrence of Arabia you -- -- and -- and and watch it because it's it's a beautifully done. Film and Peter O'Toole is absolutely fabulous why he didn't win the Oscar. But he never won an Oscar for acting and all this great performances. So sorry to see them do that Peter O'Toole was gone he was he was that an acting legend. -- -- saint -- shameless. A tool. Irishman. Has it have you noticed how the shooting at the Colorado school it's kind of gone off the radar. Not a lot of discussion certainly not similar to what happened within the the a drum beating for gun control and we saw after the sandy hook shoot. Couple of reasons for that my baby don't Brenda actually get a little show prep forming and came across a story. That was in no one of the Colorado newspapers. And appeared briefly. And then the article reappeared with an interesting. Deletion. From the story there is a lot more we're learning. Amount this. Young man who did the shooting and interesting developments in the story that I'll share with you right after the news it's 4 o'clock.
