DEFUND THE SNOOPS: CALL CONGRESS NOW!

Justin Raimondo, July 23, 2013

From (of all places!) National Review:

“The House is scheduled to vote on Wednesday on amendments to the FY 2014 Defense Appropriations Bill, one of which will be the LIBERT-E Act, which would prohibit the National Security Agency from collecting telephone and e-mail meta-data from American citizens who are not under investigation. Representative Justin Amash, a libertarian Republican from Michigan, introduced the amendment in an effort to curtail the agency’s controversial data-collection activities, which were disclosed earlier this year by fugitive ex-NSA-contractor Edward Snowden….

“Meanwhile, the Huffington Post’s Ryan Grim reports this morning that General Keith Alexander, the director of the NSA, has scheduled a meeting with several members of Congress in an effort to build opposition to the amendment.”

Amash and insurgent libertarian Republicans are threatening to sink the whole Defense Appropriations bill unless this amendment is passed — and they need your help! Call your congressional representative(s) today — the vote is on Wednesday!

  7. My husband and i ended up being very joyful that Emmanuel managed to conclude his analysis out of the ideas he obtained out of your weblog. It is now and again perplexing to just choose to be offering ideas which usually most people may have been trying to sell. We really realize we’ve got you to thank because of that. The illustrations you have made, the straightforward site navigation, the friendships your site help create – it’s mostly wonderful, and it’s really facilitating our son and us consider that that matter is pleasurable, which is seriously important. Thank you for the whole lot!
