Yep, another term sacrificed on the oh-so-inclusive altar of progressive Newspeak. So … what, pray tell, is a “U.S. person” anyway? It must mean something since President Citizen of the World said it more than once during the interview with Charlie Rose.
What I can say unequivocally is that if you are a U.S. person, the NSA cannot listen to your telephone calls, and the NSA cannot target your emails … and have not. They cannot and have not, by law and by rule, and unless they — and usually it wouldn’t be “they,” it’d be the FBI — go to a court, and obtain a warrant, and seek probable cause, the same way it’s always been, the same way when we were growing up and we were watching movies, you want to go set up a wiretap, you got to go to a judge, show probable cause….
So point number one, if you’re a U.S. person, then NSA is not listening to your phone calls and it’s not targeting your emails unless it’s getting an individualized court order. That’s the existing rule.
Got that, U.S. persons?
Is a “U.S. person” an American? A catchall that includes undocumented Democrats? (Shout-out to the “Dreamers!”)
But American just sounds so imperialistic and exclusive, dontcha think? No?
Up next: USian. We wish we were kidding.
For those wondering how the NSA defines “U.S. person”:
Federal law and executive order define a U.S. Person as:
a. a citizen of the United States;
b. an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence;
c. an unincorporated association with a substantial number of members who are citizens of the U.S. or are aliens lawfully admitted for permanent residence; or,
d. a corporation that is incorporated in the U.S.
Heh. So Obama’s saying corporations are people? Someone get the Soros monkeys on this!

Those numbers seem to match those reported by Egyptian media. Much of the no vote seems to be coming from Egypt’s second-largest city, Alexandria, where violent clashes are reported to have left at least 19 injured.
Shout out to Alexandrians for being the most awesome people in Egypt with a majority of the “no” vote.

Alexandria > Egypt. Also when is Alexandria going to declare its independence from Egypt?

Alexandria is Rome, but Egypt is definitely not Italy.

Some media outlets, including Reuters and the Jerusalem Post, are reporting that the office of the Wafd opposition party was attacked with petrol bombs and birdshot late in the day.
Can we confirm burning of Wafd HQ and is there any violence at Sabahi HQ? #egypt

As CBS reports, “The draft would empower Islamists to carry out the most widespread and strictest implementation of Islamic law that modern Egypt has seen.” We can’t confirm the text on this sign, but it’s being retweeted quite a bit.
