Yeah but why would you want them to? I mean they passed the Patriot Act which basically fucked everyone's privacy every which way anyway right?
I never said I wanted them to or it would have been a great thing to do. As you noted the Patriot Act was bad enough.
Words that make me shiver; Patriot Act, Homeland etc.

Not sure about that. Gorsuch is an originalist like Scalia, with a history of "pro-defendant" interpretations of the 4th Amendment, Roberts is also a wildcard on 4th Amendment cases since he doesn't have a strong position in either direction.
I hope your optimism proves true. But personally I wouldn't bet a single penny on it.

I hope I am proven wrong, but i doubt I will be.

That's Kavanaugh you dweeb. Fail! Gorsuch appointment was the stolen one, but with drama free confirmation. I don't know much about Kavanaugh but I suspect he would vote for whatever sounds good after slamming a half case of Natty.
doh
I had to put the 293 days stolen scotus seat deep in the recesses of my swampy brain lest it take hold of my delicate psyche.
thanks for dredging it up, i think

It's not. After 9/11 the level of fear, ignorance and omg was at 11. Congress could have passed "anything" and the scared masses would have genuflected.
Now whether it would hold up under later review is a diffent story.
I know one things for sure; If there is ever another major terrorist strike I'm gonna go into the flag selling business (buttons, sew-ons, t-shirts, bumper stickers and ones on a pole) and retire in luxury.

tldr: did the new laws mandate backdoors into all encryption? if so that'd be a disaster cuz even well-encrypted things like DRM and blu-ray handshakes take little over a month for the warez community to crack. how easy would it be with the same introduced weakness built in to everything?!?

Australian politicians are the stupidest people in the world. Australian journalists aren't much better. They should have been outraged about this because these laws could absolutely be used to investigate journalists' sources in any whistleblowing case. But they're all still cowed by any vague suggestion of "terrorism".

Then there's the possibility that these laws could cripple the country's tech sector if companies decide to move overseas. Great work.

Aussie Journalists are a huge target...

You can think of Australia as a testbed for all the worst surveillance/policies for the Western world.

When I returned there after a 15 year absence I couldn't believe how it had changed into a security state.
