Should America’s freedom be for sale?
Joe Biden’s Deep State says yes.
And now Biden’s most powerful intelligence agencies are purchasing private information about Americans – and Rand Paul is smacking them down.
Sen. Paul, along with a group of other Senators from both parties, introduced the Fourth Amendment is Not For Sale Act.
This bill would prevent Joe Biden’s secret intelligence agencies from covertly buying Americans’ location records, call records, text records, email records, and any other private data, from third-party brokers.
The intelligence community has been losing popularity with the public ever since their crimes against the Constitution after 9/11 were revealed.
Furthermore, their credibility tanked after they targeted President Trump for all 4 years of his presidency with false allegations and innuendo, such as trying to link him to Russia.
However, these secret police agencies never stop looking for ways to circumvent the Constitution. And now they’ve found a new one.
The Wall Street Journal has reported on a number of occasions over the past year that various government agencies have been buying the cell phone tracking data of innocent American citizens.
They claim that this doesn’t violate the Constitution because they’re purchasing it from a private broker, but the Fourth Amendment makes no such exception for technicalities like that. The government cannot collect innocent Americans’ records without a warrant – period.
The agencies doing this include the typical secret spy agencies such as the Defense Intelligence Agency, who have been doing illegal surveillance and shredding the Constitution for years.
But they also include agencies like the IRS, who are constantly looking to hunt down people who don’t pay their taxes on time.
According to the Wall Street Journal last June, “The Internal Revenue Service attempted to identify and track potential criminal suspects by purchasing access to a commercial database that records the location of millions of American cellphones.”
After all the scandals the IRS was involved in during the Obama administration, such as targeting Tea Party groups for investigation on false pretenses, many have wondered how they could ever be trusted with the most sensitive data of American citizens.
That’s why Rand Paul and other Senators, such as Mike Lee and Ron Wyden, have stepped up to do something about this.
The Fourth Amendment Is Not For Sale Act requires intelligence agencies to follow the Constitution, and get a warrant. It makes it illegal to bypass court orders and buy sensitive information about Americans from data dealers.
Whether or not this bill will make it through Congress remains to be seen.
After all, both chambers of Congress are controlled by Democrats, who love secret spy programs and big government.
Additionally, there is still a rump group of neocon Republicans who worship at the alter of secret spy agencies. This includes big-government “Republican” legislators such as Liz Cheney, Dan Crenshaw, Lindsey Graham, and Tom Cotton.
However, with Republicans expected to gain control of Congress in 2022, and primary challenges expected for RINOs like Liz Cheney, it’s possible that the next Congress will have more interest in a bill like this that would protect the Constitution.
The Fourth Amendment might be for sale right now, but Rand Paul is standing up and doing something about it.
