Rand Paul: Protect our liberties & the innocent by letting Patriot Act expire — Key Votes Coming Up

Update: Unfortunately the first vote on “cloture” passed 74-8 today, there will likely be a vote on Wednesday in the Senate on final passage of the bill, S.1038. At that point it would move to the House for a vote. We need to let everyone in Congress know that it’s time to give us our freedom back, even if they ignore us, at least it won’t be said that we did nothing.

Great speech by Rand Paul. Every American should give this careful consideration.

Urgent: Need to contact your Senators and Representatives and urge them to vote no on extending any and all provisions of the Patriot Act. We don’t want four more years of warrantless spying, warantless wiretapping, searches and seizures without probable cause..they’re all ridiculous, unnecessary, even abhorent notions in a so-called “free” society.

“We can go after terrorists… but we can do it with a process that protects the innocent.” —Rand Paul

Patriot Act Extension Fails Today, Up For Vote Again Soon

Update: 2-8-2011
PATRIOT Act Extension Fails, For Now, OpenCongress.org
Read the short article at the link above, written by Donny Shaw, some good information. This issue is still very much alive, contact your representatives.

Kucinich: “…In 2007 the justice department’s inspector General told Congress the FBI may have violated the law or government policy as many as 3000 times since 2003 in the course of secretly collecting telephone, bank and credit card records without warrants, instead using so-called national security letters that give them the ability to demand this information and get it. The Patriot Act is a destructive undermining of the Constitution …How about today we take a stand for the Constitution to say that all Americans should be free from unreasonable search and seizure…”



Glorifying and Worshipping the Police State

Ah, yes. Homeland Security U.S.A. is the latest in mind-numbing “reality” television and it looks to be little more than propaganda for the state. Sit back, relax, and be acclimated to the incremental loss of your liberties in the comfort of your own home!

Just watch — all of these people in uniform are so nice and good and official looking! There is nothing to fear, we should give them more power to “do their jobs”. Pay no attention to the 20,000+ troops being stationed in America or the warrantless checkpoints because it’s all “for your safety” of course. Everything changed a few years ago (don’t you know?) — posse comitatus and the Bill of Rights are obsolete these days.

Ron Paul Discusses Today’s Election and What it Means for the Country

Ron Paul (the man who in a perfect world would’ve been elected president today) was interviewed on CNN’s American Morning show. He discussed the elections and what a new president will mean to our country.

Let’s just say it doesn’t look good no matter who of the two “evils” wins today.

Is Martial Law Coming to a Town Near You?

The destruction of Posse Comitatus sets a very dangerous precedent for America:

This chilling interview with Naomi Wolf (activist and author of books such as “Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries”) is from October 4, 2008 on “Mind Over Matters”, KEXP 90.3 FM Seattle:

Keith Olbermann Blasts Republican Fear Mongering and 9/11 Hypocrisy

Keith Olbermann rightly blasts John McCain and his band of neocon sycophants for their hypocrisy and fear mongering at the Republican National Convention in regards to 9/11, Bin Laden, and the so-called “war on terror”:

Coverage of Ron Paul’s Rally for the Republic

Way too much happened at the Rally for the Republic to show it all here, but some of the highlights are below. From all reports it was an amazing time. Obviously there were some excellent speakers there but also (from what I’ve heard) there was a good sense of camaraderie amongst the various types of people there as well. Freedom unites!

Ron Paul Teaches Neocons 101

This video is amazing. In this speech given on the House floor in July of 2003 Ron Paul exposes neocons and their agenda in a very clear, direct and undeniable way. Republicans are currently wondering why their party is imploding — well here you go.

Wake up all you Fox News, AIPAC, Rush Limbaugh, Rupert Murdoch, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Laura Ingram, Bill Kristol, Irving Kristol, Christopher Hitchens, William F. Buckley, Leo Strauss, John Hagee, Patriot Act, Paul Wolfowitz, John McCain, Richard Pearl, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfield, etc followers.

Those people and organizations are frauds. Your Republican party and your “conservative” movement were hijacked years ago by the neoconservatives.

A Timely Speech From JFK

Can you imagine a president saying something like this today?

THIS is from MTV???

mtv_logo-thumb.jpg

The videos linked to below very well could be what “the unintended consequences of not electing Ron Paul” will look like (as they were titled on YouTube) in the not too distant future. With the emerging police state and the erosion of the Constitution through the Patriot Act, Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act, etc the message in these ads is spot on and needs to be heard.

Though these ads have been out for awhile I just saw them today. I’m out of the MTV loop since I stopped watching it years ago (when they became a mostly obsolete network that produces extremely shallow “reality” TV crap). I do miss the good old days though when they actually used to play music videos. Perhaps MTV is trying to become relevant again? If they keep putting out messages like this it might just work.

Just as I wrote this the YouTube video was taken down and other versions aren’t embeddable on WordPress so here are links to the ads:

The Holocaust Happened to People Like Us:

“Family Room”

“Subway”

Also, on second thought I have to give MTV some credit for their political action efforts. They do encourage people to get educated and involved in politics and to register to vote, which is more than can be said for most other networks. Plus, their presidential debate was by far the most balanced and objective — MTV was much better than CNN or Fox — all candidates were treated fairly and given equal time.

Fox News Won’t Support the Constitution

For anyone familiar with the Constitution who is also familiar with the Patriot Act-loving, “no, I wouldn’t call that torture”, preemptive war-touting FauxNews this comes as no surprise. According to thinkprogress.org FauxNews is refusing to air this recent ad by the Center for Constitutional Rights. Fairly unbalanced? You decide…

Media Matters.org has the short email response from Fox News saying they can’t run the ad because they didn’t provide “documentation” that the Constitution “is indeed being destroyed.”
