On This Labor Day, Let Us Finish The Work

A country as wealthy as America should not have a problem with poverty.

We should have a basic income for all citizens as a right of citizenship. Eliminate the cap on Social Security taxable income and expand it to all adults. Start accounts for all newborns that they get when they finish school to get started in life. Four year college for all students who can, and tech school for those who can’t. We can do and afford it all if we only have the will!

There are a few countries that do this and similar stuff for their citizens. These countries weathered the recession better than we did!!! Check out Denmark, they do all kinds of stuff for their citizens and before you complain about high taxes think about this. Our companies are complaining that we have the highest corporate tax rate of all modern countries. So how do these countries do these things with low taxes? Simple, they do not let corporations weasel out of paying their fair share like we do.

The blowback I got from those who are well off, (remember 93% of our wealthy folks inherited their wealth), is that if people have a basic income they will not work, but if that is true why do military retirees, who can retire at 38 with a generous pension, still work? Why do social security recipients still work?

A basic income for all would allow us to eliminate the social safety net the rich seem to always complain about. Workers would not have to work to keep from starving and as a result businesses would have to bid for our labor instead of us begging them for a job! You wouldn’t hear about a minimum wage as I imagine the bidding for workers might eliminate that.

Sounds good on this Labor Day! Here’s a plan for taking back from Businesses’ and Corporation’s the dignity and value our work should produce. Here’s a plan for boosting the spending power of the poor and middle class and leaving behind the failed and greedy policy of Supply Side, or ‘Trickle Down’ Economics which has damaged our economy and brought about the latest version of the Great Recession.

Yep we can do it all if we only have the will. We can make this country live up to its promise as articulated by Franklin Roosevelt in his Four Freedoms. We have accomplished 3 of these freedoms, freedom of speech and worship, and freedom from fear. Now we have the power to accomplish the last of these freedoms, freedom from want. The mechanics are already in place. The tools are available to us. Let us make a better country and thereby a better world by finishing the work Mr. Roosevelt set us on some 73 years ago. Let us end poverty and financial inequality in America once and for all.

How Facebook (FB) is influencing the 2018 Election by censoring Anti-Globalist users for baseless accusations of “hate speech”

Summary:

This morning, (10/09/2018), I found my FB account suspended for 30 days (right past the November Election), for the baseless accusation of “hate speech.” And it was over a post I made nearly a year ago. It was not “hate speech” though it was an actual comment that I had made. Unlike earlier FB suspensions it is not just that I cannot comment, or post articles, for 30 days. I cannot even see my Facebook homepage or even read other peoples posts.

As you will see FB is censoring our free speech while offering no timely appeal. In effect FB is violating our 1st Amendment Right to Free Speech by taking the role of “judge, jury and executioner.” And as you will read there appears to be no timely method by which I can defend myself against this false accusation of “hate speech.” And now that FB has a user based of 3 Billion — 10 times the population of the United States — these violations of our free speech must be addressed.

Over the past several years I have written over 240 Facebook Notes that would position me as an Anti-Globalist which is my right. And just as Justice Kavanaugh was rightfully angry about accusations of “rape” and “sexual misconduct — without any corroborating evidence — I am similarly angry about being accused of “hate speech.” And I even angrier that my account has been suspended and there appears to be no way to challenge the accusation.

Why is it that we have endured 2 years of accusation of “Russian Influence” — over our elections — when Facebook is also trying to influence the elections by censoring those of us opposed to a Globalist Agenda of Open Borders, Gun Confiscation and so much more. Facebook has been stuffing our feeds with Open Borders propaganda, through FWD, for years. More recently they are stuffing our feeds with globalist propaganda through “Facebook Watch” — which now use videos to influence public opinion.

This is not about me. This is about the mass censorship of anything that challenges to Globalist Agenda: an agenda that FB wholeheartedly supports through its mass posts and the censorship of those (like me) that question it. What this is reallyy about is Mass Censorship of our 1st Amendment Right to Free Speech. This should concern everyone.

The Details of my 30 Day Suspension from Facebook:

So this morning I went to my Facebook Page. Instead of seeing my FB Page I found that I was suspended for the unfounded accusation of “hate speech.” I am completely cut off from even seeing my FB page — not just from commenting on posts appearing on my page.

Here is what appeared on my FB page:

This post goes against our Community Standards
Only you can see this post because it goes against our standards on hate speech.

{This was the post in question — from basically a year ago}

KR: Actually they look at it much like the Greeks and Roman’s did: the guy getting it in the ass is gay, the guy sticking it in the ass is not. Of course we all know the truth of the matter: they’re all a bunch of faggots. LOL.

We just saw a reminder of this in Dearborn about a month ago where a young boy was sexually hazed by other Muslim boys at Fordson High School. Thankfully the students protested this which is good. What is not good is that as Islam becomes more entrenched within a “host country” this shit just gets worse and worse in proportion to their numbers Vs the non-Muslim host populations.

This temporary block will last 30 days, and you won’t be able to post on Facebook until it’s finished.
If you post something that goes against our standards again, your account will be blocked for another 30 days.
Please keep in mind that people who repeatedly post things that aren’t allowed on Facebook may have their accounts permanently disabled.

This was a response to an article that appeared in the Detroit Free Press, nearly a year ago, where a High School Student was sexually hazed at Fordson High School whose student population is about 95% Middle Eastern and also about 95% Muslim. I know the post was a year old because I looked up the article.

=====

Having grown up in Dearborn this really concerned me. The vast majority of Muslims are great people. But in recent years we are seeing evidence of more Muslim Refugees moving in as evidence by a minority of women in Burka’s — full body coverings. I have lived in Dearborn all my life — nearly 60 years — and I had NEVER seen a woman in a full Burka till about 3 years ago. I find this concerning as it is evidence of new arrivals that are much more “orthodox” than the Lebanese Muslim population which arrived as early as the 1880’s.

Are we all Kavanaugh’s now? Are we to endure being accused of “hate speech” without ANY recourse? Is it really OK for FB to become our judge, jury and executioner with absolutely no recourse? Because that is what is happening.

Right after I found myself blocked I found a contact number for FB and made a call which was answered by a male that works in India. He said someone would call back around 8:30 and someone actually did call back about 30 minutes later. But when I picked up the phone there was dead silence despite me saying repeatedly “is there anybody out there?” After about 30″ the phone disconnected. I called again [(888)226-0016] a few minutes after 9:00 AM and, once again, they said someone would contact me. It is nearly 10:45 AM and no called so I called them back.

Now it gets weird. The FB Tech asks me for my email address. Fine. Then he sends this to my email address — I suppose to confirm the accuracy of the address.

Next I reiterate that I WAS NOT HACKED. THAT WAS MY POST FROM A YEAR AGO. CHANGING MY FB PASSWORD HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MY FAKE “30 DAY” SUSPENSION FOR “ALLEGED” HATE SPEECH.

So next he asked me to open a new tab and type in “www.helpme.net” and here is the text from that webpage:

=====

So I read the text and said to him:

“Why would I give you access to my Laptop, when what you really need to do is withdraw the “hate speech accusation” and let me access my Facebook Page. I see no reason for you to have direct access to my PC. Why would you need to do that?”

There was a brief pause on the line. Then he hung up on me. It is now 12:30 PM and I have not received any follow up call. So at the moment my right to free speech remains violated by FB. I am not happy about this.

Defending my post from a year ago:

=====
{This was the post in question — from basically a year ago}

We just saw a reminder of this in Dearborn about a month ago where a young boy was sexually hazed by other Muslim boys at Fordson High School. Thankfully the students protested this which is good. What is not good is that as Islam becomes more entrenched within a “host country” this shit just gets worse and worse in proportion to their numbers Vs the non-Muslim host populations.

(1) Why suddenly has FB accused me of hate speech for something I posted about a year ago? I know it was about a year ago because I was responding to an article that appeared in the Detroit Free Press in October of 2017. Is this an attempt to influence the 2018 Mid-term elections by censoring those of us that see the only meaningful “binary choice” is to support republican candidates in November? And unlike Russian influence allegations the proof is right in front of our eyes.

(2) “Actually they (a minority of Muslim supremacists that nearly define the term “toxic masculinity”) look at it much like the Greeks and Roman’s did: the guy getting it in the ass is gay, the guy sticking it in the ass is not.”

The fact of the matter is the large influx of Libyan immigrants, into Europe, has resulted in a huge increase in the gang rape of Non-Muslim women. This has been well documented, from London to Stockholm, despite the denouncement by globalist media. That is why Hungary, Italy, England and France are electing those that want this stopped. It is also largely why Trump won in 2016 and why England voted for Brexit. People feel that they are being invaded by fighting age Muslim men that ARE committing atrocities against Non-Muslim Women.

And my comparison of these Muslim Supremacists to Greek pedophiles is also accurate:

=====
The ancient Greeks did not conceive of sexual orientation as a social identifier as modern Western societies have done. Greek society did not distinguish sexual desire or behavior by the gender of the participants, but rather by the role that each participant played in the sex act, that of active penetrator or passive penetrated.[6] This active/passive polarization corresponded with dominant and submissive social roles: the active (penetrative) role was associated with masculinity, higher social status, and adulthood, while the passive role was associated with femininity, lower social status, and youth.[6]

Homosexuality in ancient Greece
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homosexuality_in_ancient_Greece
=====

And Child Marriage, pederasty and homosexual rape are common in many Muslim Countries. By no means am I saying all Muslims engage in this. But facts are facts as this article reports:

=====
Some Muslims are fond of condemning western morality – alcoholism, nudity, premarital sex and homosexuality often being cited as examples. But Muslims do not have a monopoly on morality. In the west, child marriages and sex with children are illegal. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for many Muslim countries.

I recently saw the documentary on the Dancing Boys of Afghanistan. It exposed an ancient custom called “bacha bazi” (boy for play), where rich men buy boys as young as 11 from impoverished families for sexual slavery. The boys are dressed in women’s clothes and made to dance and sing at parties, before being carted away by the men for sex. Owning boys is considered a symbol of status and one former warlord boasted of having up to 3,000 boys over a 20-year period, even though he was married, with two sons. The involvement of the police and inaction of the government means this form of child prostitution is widespread.

The moral hypocrisy is outrageous in a country where homosexuality is not only strictly forbidden but savagely punished, even between two consenting adults. However, men who sodomise young boys are not considered homosexuals or paedophiles. The love of young boys is not a phenomenon restricted to Afghanistan; homosexual pederasty is common in neighbouring Pakistan, too. In my view, repression of sexuality and extreme gender apartheid is to blame.

Child marriage and pederasty are tolerated in Muslim societies where homosexuality is strictly condemned (Sat 24 Apr 2010)
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2010/apr/25/middle-east-child-abuse-pederasty
=====

So that is my defense against FB accusing me of hate speech.

I am not condeming all Muslims.
I am not racist or Islamaphobic —
as I do not condemn all Muslims on the transgressions of a few. Like Martin Luther King I do try to judge each individual by the content of their character.

But FB has no right to censor me for 30 days — past the Mid Term Election — because I bring up a few inconvenient facts.

(1) There are a minority of Muslim Men that rape young boys, but who do not see themselves as gay. Fact.

(2) Child Marriage, pederasty and homosexual rape are common in many Muslim Countries. Fact.

Suspending my FB account for 30 days over something I said a year ago is highly suspect. Why now? Why do I have no recourse to challenge the accusation?

I do understand why Kavanaugh was so angry when falsely accused of “rape” and “sexual misconduct.” And I am equally angry that FB is falsely accusing me of “hate speech” when that is not the case.

Instead of Russian influence in our elections what we really need to investigate, and resolve, is the attempts by Big Tech (Facebook, Google, Twitter, YouTube etc.) to influence the 2018 Mid-Term elections by censoring those of us that oppose their Globalist Agenda. Our republic cannot sustain itself if our 1st Amendment Rights continue to be under siege.

The very reason our founders made Free Speech — the first Amendment to the US Constitution — is because our republic is predicated on our right to freely discuss the issues of the day. If we continue to allow Globalist Big Tech to violate that right our republic is put in peril. The solution is obvious to me. All the Globalist Big Tech Platforms must be reduced to the status of utilities. And just like the phone utilities cannot censor what you say on the phone the Big Tech Platforms should no longer be able to censor what you say on thier platforms. There should be few exceptions and there must be a mechanism to quickly review and challenge any suspension from their platforms. If that does not occur soon it seems we either accept our slave status or revert to the 2nd Amendment. And I don’t EVER want to see it go there. It should not be necessary in a free society. But if Big Tech continues along this path there may be no real alternative. And that would be a sad day for our republic.

Let me emphasize our current plight with a quote from our first President, George Washington.

=====
“For if Men are to be precluded from offering their Sentiments on a matter, which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences, that can invite the consideration of Mankind, reason is of no use to us; the freedom of Speech may be taken away, and, dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep, to the Slaughter.”

George Washington, address to the officers of the army, Newburgh, New York (March 15, 1783); reported in John C. Fitzpatrick, ed, The Writings of George Washington (1938), vol. 26, p. 225.

Real time updates.

I called FB again (1:15 PM) and the Indian Woman (Tech Support, Stockton CA) said someone would call me shortly.

1:30 PM
I attempt to login to FB and am now able to view my FB page. But when I click on “Like” to a comment I am blocked. So I can now see my page but cannot interact and get the following message.

This Feature is Temporarily Blocked
You recently posted something that violates Facebook policies, so you’re temporarily blocked from using this feature. For more information, visit the Help Center.

To keep from getting blocked again, please make sure you’ve read and understand Facebook’s Community Standards.
The block will be active for 29 days and 21 hours more.
If you think this doesn’t go against our Community Standards let us know.

I click on the “let us know” link and get the next message:

Thanks for taking the time to submit a report.

So I wrote in the following response:

“I was accused of “hate speech” this morning for a comment I made nearly a year ago. It is not hate speech and I demand to speak to someone to challenge the accusation. Please call me at (313) 274-7372 so we can discuss this issue.”

But when I hit the “Send” button I get the following message:

Could not process your request
We could not process your request. Please try again later.

I’m sorry but I have been trying to resolve this for the last 5 hours. The FB Techs hang up on me. And while I can see my FB page I am still suspended and unable to explain why this allegation of “hate speech” is an error.

In my 64 years I have never seen such an abridgment of our right to free speech. This should concern all of us. I have sent this message to a 3rd party so they can share it on FB. I encourage everyone that reads this article to repost this widely. What FB is doing is wrong and it must stop.

Free Speech is essential if we expect to continue to live in a Free Republic. This should concern everyone! Just saying.

Friday’s UN Attack On America – 17 Global Goals To Seize America’s Wealth – Sustainable Development Agenda 21 Style


Posted on September 26, 2015 by Rick Wells in Agenda 21,

 

283 un massacre 940

 

To those unfamiliar with the UN’s global government attack on freedom, capitalism and the United States, the ambiguous term “sustainable development” doesn’t have much meaning. It’s deliberately vague and can mean pretty much anything anyone chooses. Under the UN it means a “Nanny World” of global Marxism and austerity, with every person on the planet living at the same level of destitution and minimized resource consumption. To the degree that it is achieved by lifting up the poor, it’s equally dependent upon a corresponding degradation of the living standards of the more affluent.

The people of the United States pay the nanny’s salary and all expenses, which are extremely hefty and burdensome. It is the opposite of the system we Americans have thrived under in the past and which the rest of the world, led by our own hijacked government, is now working feverishly to destroy.

On Friday the anti-American global government, the United Nations, formally adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which they depict as a positive set of bold new Global Goals. It all depends upon which side of the equality equation one resides. For America and the West, it is a recipe for disaster, a hemlock cocktail that we didn’t order but which is being delivered to our table nonetheless, courtesy of the management; the global government cabal.

In a ceremony at UN headquarters in New York City which opened the UN sustainable Development Summit, our chief protagonist, General Secretary Ban Ki-moon said, “The new agenda is a promise by leaders to all people everywhere. It is an agenda for people, to end poverty in all its forms – an agenda for the planet, our common home.” It’s an agenda for all nations to subordinate themselves to UN dictates, and to surrender their wealth for redistribution. Somehow those stark realities became lost in the midst of all the feel-good grand proclamations and naiveté, by design.

It’s important to bear in mind while many of these vague and idealistic goals may seem worthwhile; most are completely unachievable, such as the first one below, and all come with a hefty price tag that must be paid by someone. That someone is the American people and our fellow Westerners. We, our nation and our way of life are under attack by the United Nations and by our government. It is an attack which, if allowed to proceed to its unnatural conclusion will be the end of us. That fact cannot be overstated. This is a takeover of the United States, our resources, our society and our sovereignty. We still have the power to say no, we can evict these global parasites and reclaim our sovereignty. All it requires is leadership, recognition of the threat and a sincere desire to preserve the greatest country on earth.

If we fail to do so and they are successful in implementing this global agreement and enforcing it, America as we have known it will cease to exist. It’s that simple. The following seventeen goals are from the UN document, which can be viewed in its entirety here.

Please note the unrealistic nature of the grand proclamations and goals, all intended to pull at the humanitarian heart strings and vilify those who resist the takeover as callous, uncaring and selfish. Pay attention to the insertion of central control in the UN over every aspect of our lives as Agenda 21 continues to be implemented without our approval and without any debate. It’s just being done, unilaterally, by those who have hijacked our government. The goals below are each linked to their original page on the UN website along with a short and in many cases disturbing excerpt of the UN’s own justification for their objectives.

Also pay particular note to the objectives of economic development and equality. That money has to come from somewhere and as our standard of living is reduced we all become more equal. It’s also worth noting that climate change and “sustainable development” are prominently featured as a justification for everything, in spite of both terms having no real world relevance.

Goal 1: END POVERTY IN ALL ITS FORMS EVERYWHERE

Economic growth must be inclusive to provide sustainable jobs and promote equality.

Goal 2: END HUNGER, ACHIEVE FOOD SECURITY AND IMPROVED NUTRITION AND PROMOTE SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE

It is time to rethink how we grow, share and consume our food.

If done right, agriculture, forestry and fisheries can provide nutritious food for all and generate decent incomes, while supporting people-centered rural development and protecting the environment.

Right now, our soils, freshwater, oceans, forests and biodiversity are being rapidly degraded. Climate change is putting even more pressure on the resources we depend on, increasing risks associated with disasters such as droughts and floods.

Goal 3: ENSURE HEALTHY LIVES AND PROMOTE WELL-BEING FOR ALL AT ALL AGES

Ensuring healthy lives and promoting the well-being for all at all ages is essential to sustainable development.

Goal 4: ENSURE INCLUSIVE AND QUALITY EDUCATION FOR ALL AND PROMOTE LIFELONG LEARNING

Obtaining a quality education is the foundation to improving people’s lives and sustainable development.

Goal 5: ACHIEVE GENDER EQUALITY AND EMPOWER ALL WOMEN AND GIRLS

Providing women and girls with equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes will fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large.

Goal 6: ENSURE ACCESS TO WATER AND SANITATION FOR ALL

There is sufficient fresh water on the planet to achieve this. But due to bad economics or poor infrastructure, every year millions of people, most of them children, die from diseases associated with inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene.

Goal 7: ENSURE ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE, RELIABLE, SUSTAINABLE AND MODERN ENERGY FOR ALL

Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today. Be it for jobs, security, climate change, food production or increasing incomes, access to energy for all is essential.

Sustainable energy is opportunity – it transforms lives, economies and the planet.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is leading a Sustainable Energy for All initiative to ensure universal access to modern energy services, improve efficiency and increase use of renewable sources.

Goal 8: PROMOTE INCLUSIVE AND SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC GROWTH, EMPLOYMENT AND DECENT WORK FOR ALL

A continued lack of decent work opportunities, insufficient investments and under-consumption lead to an erosion of the basic social contract underlying democratic societies: that all must share in progress.

Sustainable economic growth will require societies to create the conditions that allow people to have quality jobs that stimulate the economy while not harming the environment.

Goal 9: BUILD RESILIENT INFRASTRUCTURE, PROMOTE SUSTAINABLE INDUSTRIALIZATION AND FOSTER INNOVATION

Investments in infrastructure – transport, irrigation, energy and information and communication technology – are crucial to achieving sustainable development and empowering communities in many countries.

Inclusive and sustainable industrial development is the primary source of income generation, allows for rapid and sustained increases in living standards for all people, [except Westerners] and provides the technological solutions to environmentally sound industrialization.

Goal 10: REDUCE INEQUALITY WITHIN AND AMONG COUNTRIES

There is growing consensus that economic growth is not sufficient to reduce poverty if it is not inclusive and if it does not involve the three dimensions of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental.

To reduce inequality, policies should be universal in principle paying attention to the needs of disadvantaged and marginalized populations.

Goal 11: MAKE CITIES INCLUSIVE, SAFE, RESILIENT AND SUSTAINABLE

However, many challenges exist to maintaining cities in a way that continues to create jobs and prosperity while not straining land and resources.

The challenges cities face can be overcome in ways that allow them to continue to thrive and grow, while improving resource use and reducing pollution and poverty.

Goal 12: ENSURE SUSTAINABLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION PATTERNS

Sustainable consumption and production is about promoting resource and energy efficiency, sustainable infrastructure, and providing access to basic services, green and decent jobs and a better quality of life for all [Again, not the Americans or Westerners – We’re paying the bill but excluded from the investments]. Its implementation helps to achieve overall development plans, reduce future economic, environmental and social costs, strengthen economic competitiveness and reduce poverty.

Sustainable consumption and production aims at “doing more and better with less,” increasing net welfare gains from economic activities by reducing resource use.

It also requires a systemic approach and cooperation among actors operating in the supply chain… engaging consumers through awareness-raising and education on sustainable consumption and lifestyles, providing consumers with adequate information through standards and labels and engaging in sustainable public procurement.

Goal 13: TAKE URGENT ACTION TO COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE AND ITS IMPACTS

Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow.

People are experiencing the significant impacts of climate change, which include changing weather patterns, rising sea level, and more extreme weather events. [More of the usual false alarmist claims are in the original text] The poorest and most vulnerable people are being affected the most.

[Here’s their “justification” for requiring worldwide participation by every nation and the ability to control every country.]But climate change is a global challenge that does not respect national borders. Emissions anywhere affect people everywhere. It is an issue that requires solutions that need to be coordinated at the international level and it requires international cooperation to help developing countries move toward a low-carbon economy. To address climate change, countries are working to adopt a global agreement in Paris this December.

Goal 14: CONSERVE AND SUSTAINABLY USE THE OCEANS, SEAS AND MARINE RESOURCES

Careful management of this essential global resource is a key feature of a sustainable future.

Goal 15: SUSTAINABLY MANAGE FORESTS, COMBAT DESERTIFICATION, HALT AND REVERSE LAND DEGRADATION, HALT BIODIVERSITY LOSS

Deforestation and desertification – caused by human activities and climate change – pose major challenges to sustainable development and have affected the lives and livelihoods of millions of people in the fight against poverty.

Goal 16: PROMOTE JUST, PEACEFUL AND INCLUSIVE SOCIETIES

…dedicated to the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, the provision of access to justice for all, and building effective, accountable institutions at all levels.

Goal 17: REVITALIZE THE GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

A successful sustainable development agenda requires partnerships between governments, the private sector and civil society. [Money going in every direction from a web of sources makes it much harder to track and much more lucrative.]

Urgent action is needed to mobilize, redirect and unlock the transformative power of trillions of dollars of private resources to deliver on sustainable development objectives. Long-term investments, including foreign direct investment, are needed in critical sectors, especially in developing countries. [Where few see the fraud and those that do are often in on it]

It isn’t hard to figure out who will be left out of the benefits when all of this new inclusiveness and “sustainable” everything is being created. Just as the foreigners are now being given preference within the United States for everything soon foreign nations will be given the advantage. We can only imagine, since it hasn’t yet been revealed, just how much of this type of outrageous and destructive anti-Americanism is hidden in Obamatrade.

As hard as it was being pushed by the criminals in the executive branch and the legislature, in conjunction with foreign commissions, we can be certain that it is not a benefit to the American people. There is no good news in this declaration for the American people, just more of the same anti-Americanism, much of it at the hands of our own “leadership.”

Paul vows to return to Capitol Hill on Sunday to block bill, end NSA spying


Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul says he’ll try to block last-ditch efforts Sunday to renew NSA and other anti-terrorist and surveillance programs.

“I will force the expiration of the NSA illegal spy program,” Paul, also a 2016 presidential candidate, said Saturday. “I am ready and willing to start the debate on how we fight terrorism without giving up our liberty.”

The Libertarian-minded Paul led a filibuster-like effort over the Memorial Day weekend that helped block legislation to extend federal surveillance efforts but suggested upon leaving the Senate chambers that he might reconsider.

“It depends,” he said. “Sometimes things change as deadlines approach.”

Barring a last-minute deal in Congress, three post-Sept. 11 surveillance laws used against spies and terrorists will expire when Sunday turns into Monday.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has called back the upper chamber for a rare Sunday session to decide on whether to accept a House-passed bill that extends the programs. Congress would then send the measure to President Obama to sign before midnight.

The House’s USA Freedom Act passed overwhelmingly in the Republican-controlled chamber but fell three votes short of the 60 needed to proceed in the Senate. And efforts in the upper chamber to extend the current law also have failed.

Much of the debate has focuses on the National Security Agency’s collection of Americans’ telephone calling records, authorized under one of the expiring provisions, Section 215 of the Patriot Act.

Independent evaluations have cast doubt on that program’s importance, and even law enforcement officials say in private that losing this ability would not carry severe consequences.

Yet the fight over those records has jeopardized other surveillance programs that have broad, bipartisan support and could fall victim to congressional gridlock.

The FBI uses Section 215 to collect other business records tied to specific terrorism investigations.

A separate section in the post-9/11 Patriot Act allows the FBI to eavesdrop, via wiretaps, on suspected terrorists or spies who discard phones to dodge surveillance. A third provision, targeting “lone wolf” attackers, has never been used and thus may not be missed if it lapses.

If the Freedom Act becomes law, the business-records provision and the roving-wiretap authority would return immediately. The NSA would resume collecting American telephone records for a six-month period while shifting to a system of searching phone company records case by case.

If no agreement is reached, all the provisions will expire.

A third possibility is a temporary extension of current law while lawmakers work out a deal, but House members have expressed opposition.

“I have fought for several years now to end the illegal spying of the NSA on ordinary Americans,” Paul also said in a statement released Saturday. “Let me be clear: I acknowledge the need for a robust intelligence agency and for a vigilant national security. I believe we must fight terrorism. …  But we do not need to give up who we are to defeat them.”

Failure to pass the legislation would mean new barriers for the government in domestic, national-security investigations, at a time when intelligence officials say the threat at home is growing.

Government and law enforcement officials, including Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, have said in recent days that letting the wiretap and business records provisions expire would undercut the FBI’s ability to investigate terrorism and espionage.

Lynch said it would mean “a serious lapse in our ability to protect the American people.” Clapper said in a statement Friday that prompt passage by the Senate of the House bill “is the best way to minimize any possible disruption of our ability to protect the American people.”

And President Obama used his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday to accuse opponents of hijacking the debate for political reasons. “Terrorists like al Qaeda and ISIL aren’t suddenly going to stop plotting against us at midnight tomorrow, and we shouldn’t surrender the tools that help keep us safe,” he said, using an acronym for the Islamic State group.

Civil liberties activists say the pre-Sept. 11 law gives the FBI enough authority to do its job. To bolster their case, they cite a newly released and heavily blacked out report by the Justice Department’s internal watchdog that examined the FBI’s use up to 2009 of business record collection under Section 215.

“The government has numerous other tools, including administrative and grand jury subpoenas, which would enable it to gather necessary information,” in terrorism investigations, the American Civil Liberties Union said in a statement.

Section 215 allows the FBI to serve a secret order requiring a business to hand over records relevant to a terrorism or espionage investigation. The FBI uses the authority “fewer than 200 times a year,” Director James Comey said last week.

The inspector general’s report said it was used in “investigations of groups comprised of unknown members and to obtain information in bulk concerning persons who are not the subjects of or associated with an authorized FBI investigation.”

But from 2007 to 2009, the report said, none of that material had cracked a specific terrorism case.

The report analyzed several cases, but most of the details are blacked out. In some cases, the FBI agent pronounced the 215 authority “useful” or “effective,” but the context and detail were censored.
