The question is, will the American people put a stop to it?
Thousands of Campaign for Liberty's members and supporters have already responded by signing their "NO 'PATRIOT' ACT EXPANSION" petition to their U.S. Senators and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
(If you haven't yet signed, please do so right away!)
But I must ask you to please share this petition with at least five friends and family members and ask them to sign it.
Without their support to bolster our numbers, I'm afraid you and I won't be prepared for the onslaught we'll face in the upcoming Lame Duck.
And if at all possible, please make a generous contribution to help Campaign for Liberty crank up the heat to stop this Deep State spying scheme in its tracks!
"You never want a serious crisis to go to waste."
While Obama-crony Rahm Emanuel made the words above famous, this was the modus operandi for statists long before Emanuel let it slip to the press.
After 9/11, the Treasury Department was granted extraordinary powers under the so-called "PATRIOT" Act to snoop around your bank account information and financial transactions without a warrant.
Financial institutions were ordered to monitor, detect, and file reports on any "suspicious activity."
And while the "PATRIOT" Act provisions limited that power to terrorism and money-laundering investigations, the Treasury Department has repeatedly sought to expand the law to include other crimes.
That's where the new "crisis" comes into play. . .
The "Empowering Financial Institutions to Fight Human Trafficking Act of 2018," H.R. 6729 claims to be aimed at a noble cause of preventing human trafficking -- modern slavery, as some have called it.
But H.R. 6729, which is now pending before the U.S. Senate, actually EXPANDS warrantless surveillance and data collection powers over ALL Americans.
And regardless of the outcome of the November elections, I expect it could come up at any time during the Lame Duck session.
That's why I'm counting on you to sign your "NO 'PATRIOT' ACT EXPANSION" petition to your U.S. Senators and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell right way.
As you'll see, this petition insists they vote "NO" on H.R. 6729, or any other bill that would expand the Deep State's warrantless surveillance power and invite further abuses of our civil liberties.
This unconstitutional assault on our rights must be stopped in its tracks!
If H.R. 6729 should be signed into law, you could have your personal bank accounts shuttered without any due process, effectively blocking you from the financial system!
nearly 17 years after the passage of the original "PATRIOT" Act, Congress should be winding down Deep State spying programs, not expanding them!
If you agree, won't you please sign your "NO 'PATRIOT' ACT EXPANSION" petition right away?
