Congress Passes PATRIOT Act II In Secret

by | Dec 21, 2015

Brand new Speaker of the House Paul Ryan made grand-sounding promises of reform. The House would go back to regular order, no more sneaking bills to the Floor in the dead of night. Well that didn’t last long: Ryan snuck a dangerous and anti-American “PATRIOT Act, II” into the “must-pass” Omnibus spending bull. As bad as the PATRIOT Act was, allowing the government to spy on us nearly at will, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) may be even worse. The bill forces private companies to spy on their customers and hand the information over to US intelligence services. When Obama signed the bill into law days ago, he essentially turned the “private” sector in the United States into an adjunct intelligence service for the government. More on this chilling move in today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:
