THE SENATE VOTES THIS WEEK ON WHETHER TO GIVE THE FBI WARRANTLESS ACCESS TO YOUR BROWSING HISTORY

Recommended Posts

A couple of weeks ago, the Senate tried to sneak a rider onto a spending bill that would give the FBI sweeping new surveillance authority, including warrantless access to browsing history (obtained from ISPs). This measure failed by one vote after thousands of people called their senators using a phone tool we set up at www.decidethefuture.org and 1-919-FREEDOM.

Now, Republican leadership is planning to re-introduce the measure (McCain Amendment 4787) and do a re-vote this week. Even though we won the first time, the razor-thin margin means this upcoming vote could really go either way. It all boils down to a few key senators who are undecided or likely to change their minds. Here’s what we know so far:

No privacy anywhere.  They're making sure of that.  Hegelian dialect.

Is this the same FBI that refers to criminals as "careless" ? Or the same FBI that played catch and release with the Orlando shooter?

Obviously, NO agency should have this power but giving it to the FBI is more than they can handle.

They are members of a private club and we aren't invited.  It is increasingly more obvious everyday.  

The deception of choice, the very illusion I once feverishly defended, is nothing more than a sham.  Dare I say the American dream is and always has been a lie.  Keep working away, slaves.  

One day you'll make it, or die... care to take any bets?
