This legislation would reform Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act and other aspects of surveillance under the Foreign Intelligence and Surveillance Act #FISA in order to protect Americans’ civil liberties and rights to due process and to increase transparency and oversight. #ampFW
Given the long history of recent government surveillance abuses, Section 215 should under no circumstances be reauthorized without major reforms. #ampFW
Sec. 215/USA PATRIOT Act created major due process, privacy concerns.

Allowed intelligence agencies to demand groups of records on Americans at a legal standard FAR below #4A protections against unauthorized search/seizures, which ought to require probable cause warrant. #ampFW

BIG TECH BATTLE. @1:30 AG Barr:
"This situation perfectly illustrates why it is critical that THE PUBLIC be able to GET ACCESS to DIGITAL EVIDENCE once obtained court order w probable cause."

Notice he doesn't say 'the FBI needs access.' (Public disclosure)
QAnon has stated numerous times "We have it all." It sure seems like a scripted presser to also CALL OUT #BigTech for their wrongful access, collection, selling of our 'private' data. This is RICO/ #4A / warrantless surveillance stuff.
AG Barr 'asks' ..."Apple & other Technology Companies"... for their help in finding solutions to protect lives of people and prevent future attacks.

Barr knows the solution to protect US is to stop [THEM]🤡's from their evil geo-tracking, surveillance and manipulations of minds.

Not on government equipment. It’s okay to use US Government (USG) telecommunication devices for personal business, if approved, and such use doesn’t interfere with USG operations. If using your USG communication device, you explicitly waive many of you’re #1A, #4A, #5A, #6A,
and #14A rights. For example, while issued a USG BlackBerry, I could send personal texts, make personal calls, and surf the web for non-USG interests, as long as I didn’t disrupt my job. Every text, phone call, website I sent, made, or used was logged by the network operations
center. The operations center would notify me if any of the 58,000+ USG accounts violated the above and I would chastise, restrict access, lock their account, and/or consult/refer persons to AFOSI for criminal investigation. Activities were not restricted to USG telecom abuse.

1.) #RedFlagLaws, yes they violate the Constitution, let me show you the ways.

#2A - It never ceases to amaze me how the phrase, “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”, simply cannot be understood by such a large swath of the American people.
2.) I understand there are folks who don’t like the #2A , but pretending it’s not there or that it says something it doesn’t is lazy, arrogant, and tyrannical.
3.) #4A - We all have a right to be secure, in both our homes and our property, and against unreasonable search and seizure. But how secure are you when someone can make an unfounded claim and your house is entered and your property seized?

The history and primary causes of Alzheimer's Disease explainlife.com/health-basics-…
You don’t have to go to medical school for 8 to 12 years to understand that toxins we consume not only affect our heart and body, but our brain as well. And yet, medical doctors wouldn’t make nearly the income they do now if they told you to fix your diet, never drink tap water.
Boycott foods imported from China, quit taking antacids, avoid metal hip replacements, and quit getting vaccines… now would they?

#DigitalBoR

Digital Bill of Rights to protect our 4th Amendment rights to privacy in the digital age.

Original #4A Language:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated,
and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
The, the ONLY places personally identifiable details could be found were on their person, in their house, or among their papers and effects. Cloud storage, digital medical records, financial databases or stock exchanges, and certainly social media – did not exist.

THREAD on new 9th Circuit decision in Rodriguez v. Swartz, our (@ACLUaz @sdACLU + @ACLU) cross-#border shooting case: On Oct. 10, 2012, a U.S. Border Patrol agent on duty in Nogales, AZ fired between 14 & 30 bullets across the #border. aclusandiego.org/wp-content/upl…
Approximately 10 of those bullets hit J.A. Rodriguez, a 16 year old boy peacefully walking down the street on the other side of the #border wall, in Nogales, Mexico.
The 9th Circuit opinion first *affirms* the AZ district court's decision denying Agent Swartz qualified immunity: 📢📢📢"It is inconceivable that any reasonable officer could have thought that he or she could kill J.A. for no reason." Slip Op. at 9.

1/ Thread: Here are my 12 thoughts on #Brexit. We are at half-time in Art50 process. Departure UK from EU now exactly 12m away. Right moment to take stock and list a few backward- and forward-looking thoughts. (You can also read the full blog-post here: delorsinstitut.de/en/all-publica…)
#1: When the UK voted leave, many said the EU would be weakened. Today it is clear that the contrary is true: it’s the UK not the EU that has been weakened by Brexit.
#2a Whatever people say, it would have been possible for Britain to change its mind about Brexit. Many political decisions, even after referenda, have been reversed in many countries.

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Inspired by the students of #NeverAgainMSD, let's contextualize #2A using the Heller decision and dissent: oyez.org/cases/2007/07-…
When summarizing #2A, many say it is “the right to bear arms” but that shorthand ignores the other 22 words, plus two heavily debated commas. In District of Columbia v. Heller on June 26, 2008, the Supreme Court decision supplanted centuries of precedents with this shorthand.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State”

The preamble identifies the purpose of the amendment as the preservation of the militia. It is important to look at the preamble with historical context: contemporary State Declarations of Rights.
