Congress Passes Bill Which Grants ‘Unlimited Access to Communications of Every American’

Big Brother - The Police State Is Watching You - Public Domain

According to Congressman Justin Amash, Congress just passed a bill which grants the government and law enforcement “unlimited access to the communications of every American”.

When the Michigan lawmaker discovered that the Intelligence Authorization Act for FY 2015 had been amended with a provision that authorizes “the acquisition, retention, and dissemination” of all communications data from U.S. citizens, he desperately attempted to organize a roll call vote on the bill.

However, the legislation was passed yesterday 325-100 via a voice vote, a green light for what Amash describes as “one of the most egregious sections of law I’ve encountered during my time as a representative”.

The bill allows the private communications of Americans to be scooped up without a court order and then transferred to law enforcement for criminal investigations.

The legislation effectively codifies and legalizes mass warrantless NSA surveillance on the American people, with barely a whimper of debate.

  1. This is a great idea!
    Now every piece of correspondence every Congress person has is subject to criminal investigation? Or did they exempt themselves?
    It is dangerous all right. That it has passed through this non-thinking bunch of goons is what is incredible.
    That means they are all subject to arrest in the near future by a police state for alledged criminal behavior.
    That means the entire political basis of the IRS could subject them all to arrest as they incriminate themselves through Emails.
    The same goes for the EPA.
    It could mean Harry Reid might be arrested for his part in the Rancher land grab scandal in the Southwest . . . Bundy might be right!
    It could mean the impeachment of a President for crimes and lies committed.
    Or the unintentional classified material that is actually criminal activity on the part of the government.
    My point is everyone of these people have something to hide and this law exposes all of them.
    The entire purpose behind the protections of the constitution is to protect the guilty in many cases.
    This is a population of aristocrats of the 18th century that made these rules. One family with two presidents in it was a smuggler. Another person was a pirate that saved our bacon from the British twice. Another was a bigamist. Another was a child molester and pervert. He was hiding from 18 fathers of women he made pregnant. Sorry, that information is not taught in American Schools.
    Our entire form of government is based on a certain amount of privacy for everyone. Not just the above guilty people.
    And these are just things that just about everyone is aware of that is not blind and deaf.
    With the exception of our biased court system, which appears to be both blind and deaf.
    How about their personal communications with government agencies?
    What might that show about the rulings concerning Obamacare for instance?
    My point is that the people with the most to hide are the very ones that are approving this legislation.
