House Votes Today to Legalize Warrantless Wiretaps

House Votes Today to Legalize Warrantless Wiretaps
From Devvy Kidd

Activist Post

Only days after a NSA whistleblower has sounded the alarm about the government's massive spying campaign on American citizens, the U.S. Congress who swore an oath to uphold the Constitution are set to legalize warrantless wiretaps with the reauthorization of the secretive FISA Amendments Act.

This legislation is the perfect example of why there is no difference between the political parties. Their rhetoric may differ when it's politically expedient, but when push comes to shove they always vote for tyranny.

Obama said he was against the Patriot Act to get elected because the majority of Americans opposed it, but then he supported its extension not for one year, but for four years. Obama repeatedly attacked Bush's warrantless wiretaps as unconstitutional, but now he's expected to sign this 5-year reauthorization once the unprincipled legislators rubber stamp it today.

It seems the only time Congress acts in a bipartisan way is when they're trampling the Constitutional rights of Americans.

ACLU wrote this about the legislation:

It permits the government to get year-long orders from the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to conduct dragnet surveillance of Americans’ international communications—including phone calls, emails, and internet records—for the purpose of collecting foreign intelligence. The orders need not specify who is going to be spied on or even allege that the targets did anything wrong. The only guarantees that the FAA gives are that no specific American will be targeted for wiretapping and that some (classified) rules about the use of intercepted information will be followed.

After four years, you’d hope that some basic information or parameters of such a massive spying program would be divulged to the public, or at least your rank-and-file member of Congress, but they haven’t...

Can you believe that 435 members of Congress who have sworn to uphold the Constitution are about to vote on a sweeping intelligence gathering law without this basic information?

If you hear politicians say that FISA actually provides meaningful oversight, they can't possibly know that due to the secrecy of the approval process. But you may remind them that every single secret surveillance request was approved in 2011 indicating a rubber stamp approval.

Don't be a person of good conscience who remains silent. Call your Congressperson and tell them to vote NO.

**CALL SENATE NOW!** EMERGENCY ALERT PART 1 - STOP S.1261 THE PASS ACT

Link: http://www.livefreeradio.net/index.php/call-senate-now-emergency-alert-part-1-s

Hi all,
This is one of my pet peeves, so I have to forward you the information as I get it. You want to Live Free? Tell it to those who are supposed to be representing you .

While you are calling to stop CAP & Trade, you may as well call about this issue too.

TAKE ACTION SPEAK UP NOW.

**CALL SENATE NOW!** EMERGENCY ALERT PART 1 - STOP S.1261 THE PASS ACT

"Mark of the Beast" - Stop 'The Pass Act' S. 1261

We need to keep the heat on all this week, it is time to start the next round of calls. They will be emptying out the voicemail boxes and be back to work this morning, keep burning up the lines!

This is an EMERGENCY ACTION ALERT to stop S.1261, The Pass Act which is worse than Real ID. We need to contact all the members of the Senate Committee for Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs to kill this before it gets to the Senate floor.


Tell them:

1. We are opposed to Real ID and the PASS Act
2. We are opposed to being enrolled in a Biometric Identification System
3. We don't want Social Security Numbers in our DMV databases
4. No RFID chips in our Driver's Licences
5. No federal intervention with the issuance of our State driver's licenses
6. We are not willing to trade our freedom for security.

All of these actions are unconstitutional and a direct attack on our civil liberties and our unalienable rights.

This ID is a GLOBAL BIOMETRIC IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM (see this video for more details: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kE8xDMokpM ) and is a direct attack on our national security.

This will take you 16 minutes (one minute for each committee member) see their contact info:

Just Last week, Rep Jim Guest of Missouri's Hard work paid off. The state senate passed Jim's measure without any opposition.

The fight is still on in NC in PA and other states as well. Minnesota has also passed anti Real ID legislation.

To Date a total of 29 states have either introduced or passed legislation to oppose the Real ID / National ID Card / Enhanced Drivers' License or whatever else they want to call it.

It just goes to show that there is hope when people stand up and let their voices be heard in their state legislatures.
