A treasure trove of information was just leaked.
The FBI has been committing unspeakable acts against American citizens.
And now the truth is finally out – and it is ugly.
The FBI has turned into a menace. If the Founding Fathers knew what they were up to (or even that an agency like the FBI exists in the first place) they would be turning over in their graves.
They target American citizens and take away their Constitutional freedoms. They ignore the rule of law and commit illegal acts.
Of course, they claim to exist for the purposes of “national security” but that is simply a cover for the type of activity they are really engaged in.
And now the truth is leaking out.
According to a report from CyberScoop, “The U.S. government disclosed that the FBI conducted as many as 3.4 million warrantless searches of U.S. citizens’ data last year that the National Security Agency had collected. The data was collected and analyzed under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act’s (FISA) Section 702, a law that dates to 1978 and that is set to expire at the end of next year.”
FISA, of course, is an unconstitutional law that claims to justify nearly all of the un-American activity that the Intelligence Community engages in to target innocent American citizens.
These searches conducted under FISA are done without any sort of warrant, which is required under the Fourth Amendment.
And they targeted 3.4 million people nationwide. There are not 3.4 million “terrorists” in America. Most of those people targeted were innocent people who had done nothing wrong.
And most of them were likely conservatives whose views are considered “dangerous” by the Deep State.
The article continues, “the Friday disclosure of the large number of searches comes as Congress is negotiating consumer privacy legislation that reflects the long-standing legislator concern about government surveillance and individual privacy. The 3.4 million searches are a large spike from the prior year, 1.3 million”
“Section 702 of FISA has long been controversial since it allows law enforcement to incidentally spy on Americans when targeting non-U.S. persons. It has become more charged since Edward Snowden revealed the scope of the spying as part of his 2013 leaks. The report issued Friday is the latest annual release of what the Office of the Director of National Intelligence calls its Annual Statistical Transparency Report, a document it has published since the Snowden leaks spurred a public backlash to the data collection program.”
The legislation that the article references is S.3195, which would prohibit companies from transferring data on individuals to other companies without their consent.
This would also apply to the government, provided that there is no warrant to search the data.
This bill would be a very small step in the right direction, but it would be an improvement from the current situation.
Ultimately, FISA needs to either be completely repealed or gutted.
Because information is power. And if these reforms are not made, the government will have complete and absolute power over every single law-abiding American.
