USA Freedom Act Gestapo-like shell game

It is a very rare thing these days when the “president,” the House, and the Senate agree on something. They did so on revising and extending the Patriot Act with another misnamed “spy on all US citizens” bill called the USA Freedom Act. Americans have become accustomed to major laws that are named the exact opposite of what they do–Patriot Act, Affordable Care Act, No Child Left Behind Act, Clean Air Act and so on. When this “president” and this Congress agree on anything, it should raise your suspicion. The USA Freedom Act is a shell game being played on all Americans. It is another opportunity to continue spying on every American citizen, shifting accountability to a secret court.

Now all the federal government has to do is get approval to gather your phone records from an unconstitutional secret court called the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The National Journal reports that “the Freedom Act calls for a transition within 6 months to a system where phone companies provide records to government spies on an as-needed, more-targeted basis after judicial approval is obtained from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.” The government’s spying on US citizens was exposed and after much outrage, it was reinstated under a different procedure, hoping that Americans would be content that they won a victory for privacy. But your privacy ends “as needed.”

In June 2013, the UK Guardian released an investigative story on how the White House used the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to bypass the Patriot Act. The Guardian published documents submitted to the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, signed by Attorney General Eric Holder July 29, 2009. The documents show that the White House used this court to back door “authority” to collect information on American citizens. The Guardian reported that the broad scope of the court orders and nature of the procedures established in the documents appeared “to clash” with assurances from the White House that our telephone and email information could not be accessed without warrants.

The White House knows how to use this secret court to spy on all Americans. The USA Freedom Act is just appeasement to make people think the government has corrected something. In reality, Congress and the White House have just back-doored their ability to oppress your freedom. As written in Jeremiah 6:14, “They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.” In John 3:20, Jesus said, “For everyone that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.” We need to continue to expose these deeds and demand accountability, otherwise your freedom of religion and of speech will be crushed in darkness.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
