While You Were Distracted by a Phony Impeachment - Congress Reauthorizes Tyrannical Patriot Act

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

On my radio show Tuesday, I said that I’m sick of hearing about non-crimes during a phony impeachment process that is going nowhere, and that due to the over exposure of the media on this “shiny thing,” there are things going on behind the scenes that need to be exposed, and lo and behold, there were.  One of the main things overshadowed by the three ring circus in DC was a cover for the reauthorization of one of the most tyrannical pieces of unconstitutional legislation in our history, the PATRIOT Act.

And there is no doubt, President Donald Trump will go along with it.  After all, he’s pushed for reauthorizing the National Security Agency’s (NSA) unlawful spying program on the American people, even as his administration goes after the people who exposed the NSA’s crimes!

WARNING:  Q followers, patriots are not in charge.  Tyrants are. Wake up!

Not only did Democrats stand for the bill’s reauthorization in a Continuing Resolution, but they waived a rule that would have given Congress at least 72 hours to read the Continuing Resolution that extended the lawless Act.

Want to see how your congressman voted?  Check it out here.

“230 members of Congress just voted to waive the rule that gives us 72 hours to read the Continuing Resolution,” Rep. Thomas Massie tweeted.  “Why is that significant? This CR contains a last minute unrelated provision to extend the #PatriotAct.”

RT has the story:

House Democrats have slipped an unqualified renewal of the draconian PATRIOT Act into an emergency funding bill – voting near-unanimously for sweeping surveillance carte blanche that was the basis for the notorious NSA program.

A three-month reauthorization of the notorious PATRIOT Act was shoehorned into a last-minute continuing resolution (CR) funding the US government, bundling measures needed to avert yet another government shutdown with a continuation of the wildly-intrusive surveillance powers passed after the 9/11 terror attacks. Democrats voted almost unanimously for it, granting the far-reaching surveillance capabilities to the very same president they’re trying to impeach.

A roll-call vote on the bill was split exactly along party lines, with all 230 Democrats standing up for unconstitutional mass surveillance – including progressives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota), who spoke out against it earlier. Two other Democrats opted not to vote, but not a single representative dared oppose party groupthink.

However, keep in mind, it was a Republican administration and majority in House and Senate that put this unconstitutional legislation into place during George W. Bush’s first term in office, and it’s still going on 18 years later!

RT adds:

It’s not just domestic surveillance that has driven Democrats and Republicans together. Despite the contrarian stance of the “Squad” and other outspoken #Resisters against President Donald Trump, House Democrats have largely gone along with Republicans in giving the president all the money he wants to wage war. Just 16 Democrats voted against the near-record ‘defense’ budget in July, a bloated $1.48 trillion over two years that dwarfs US defense spending at the height of the wars in Korea and Vietnam and gives the Pentagon more money than the rest of government combined.

Nor is Tuesday’s vote the first time Democrats have voted with, or to the right of, their colleagues across the aisle to back domestic surveillance programs, despite casually comparing Trump to Adolf Hitler and other fascist bogeymen.

Even the creators of the PATRIOT Act didn’t expect the post-9/11 police state to last forever, and included a ‘sunset provision’ that would have allowed the bill to expire – to die a natural death, legislatively-speaking – when it has outlived its usefulness. Yet Congress has kept the program on life support for years, with bipartisan support.

And what are you hearing of this in the mainstream media, people?  Forget impeachment.  If impeachment was important, they would be dealing with Trump on his crimes against the Constitution like his administration’s ex post facto “rule,” which is unlawful, against bump stock bans, or his push for red flag laws, threatening to impose executive tariffs on Mexico (something that is only authorized in our Constitution to Congress), or his lobbing missiles into Syria twice with no authorization from Congress and no legitimate, verifiable reason to do so.  I could go on down that road, but you get the point.

Your freedoms are being attacked by the left and the right, the Democrats and the Republicans and until you get that through your heads, America, you will continue to fall prey to the beast system that seeks to rule over you rather than enjoy the freedoms that only King Jesus provides for those that obey Him and stand for the law and justice.

    Impeachment is just a bunch of bad actors working together. If they were for real we should have impeachment every two years when these actors never honor their campaign promises.

  • Slimey

    If it’s NOT Constitutional the opposite must happen. You must NOT comply lest you become a co-conspirator and be arrested by Patriots. So it is with these commies. Warn them or face arrest for treason. :twisted:

    Provisions of the Patriot Act allow all of the phony fake shootings such as Sandy Hook…where no one was killed. It was a FEMA operation about gun-control.

    How about that, those doggone dems supporting and renewing a REPUBLICAN created set of laws.
    And you guys all said the two parties can’t work together……sheeeeeesh……

    If there is any more proof that both parties work for big brother and are trying to help big brother take over the world, i’d sure like can’t imagine what it is.

    The dems turn republican long enough to do what they were REALLY hired for.

    I keep saying, nobody hears. Both parties are working together for big brother, and pretending to be bitter enemies to keep the herd preoccupied. This has been obvious to the astute every since the reaganomics depression and bush seniors ” thousand points of light” speech.

  • honey bees

    How do you think they put together the EU????? They found dirt on all heads of the countries… Remember when Germany was so made because of spying on their president……And many other countries,,, every one has secrets

    • Rockledge

      That is the reality, and that is how big brother keeps all the politicians over a barrel. They have shit on them, and in this day and age of technology that is out of control, they can find shit on anybody. Because everybody has shit.
      Nobody is perfect.
      The bible says “none are good, not one”.
