    Today, while everyone is distracted by the impeachment drama, Congress will vote to extend warrantless data collection provisions of the #PatriotAct, by hiding this language on page 25 of the Continuing Resolution (CR) that temporarily funds the government. To sneak this through, Congress will first vote to suspend the rule which otherwise gives us (and the people) 72 hours to consider a bill.

    The scam here is that Democrats are alleging abuse of Presidential power, while simultaneously reauthorizing warrantless power to spy on citizens that no President should have... in a bill that continues to fund EVERYTHING the President does... and waiving their own rules to do it.

    I predict Democrats will vote on a party line to suspend the 72 hour rule. But after the rule is suspended, I suspect many Republicans will join most Democrats to pass the CR with the Patriot Act extension embedded in it.

    It’s quite possible that your member of Congress doesn’t even know the Patriot Act reauthorization is in the CR. Here’s a phone directory of the House of Representatives.

    At the end of today, I will post the roll call vote on the resolution to waive the 72 hour rule, as well as the roll call vote for passage of the CR that contains the Patriot Act extension.

The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

    Someone should let Thomas know that Trump supports signing this into law.

    Rep. Justin Amash (I–Mich.) introduced an amendment on Monday night that would have removed the Patriot Act reauthorization from the continuing resolution, but the amendment was blocked by Democratic leaders.

    The continuing resolution will also boost pay for the military, fund next year's census, and hike overall spending by about $322 billion—a figure that was agreed to earlier this year, but still seems irresponsible given the rapidly rising deficit and $23 trillion national debt.

    Thomas and Rand won't confront Trump on this issue. They'll pretend he has nothing to do with it. They're too timid to confront him.

    Don't worry though. Trump is sure to veto this, since he and the deep state are on opposite teams.

    Dunno. I just linked those tweets because they were part of the Reason article linked above and I found them to be funny.

    Given that it looks to be 100% party line votes, I'm guessing that there's something else going on with this bill that's not the PA.

    The House and Senate are doing what the deep state does so well. Buried in the final pages of a short term Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund government, the controversial bulk metadata (Call Detail Records) within the FISA program, due to expire on December 15th, is being extended to March 15th, 2020.
    As we suspected the intelligence community -and most of congress- wants the reauthorization, even if temporary, prior to the release of a critical IG report on FISA abuse. That said, a short term extension is the best case scenario when we consider the goal of the intelligence apparatus -writ large- was a permanent reauthorization.
    The “business records provision”, the “roving wiretap” provision, the “lone wolf” provision, and the more controversial bulk metadata provisions [Call Detail Records (CDR)], parts of the Patriot Act, are going to be revisited *AFTER* the report by IG Horowitz. The new deadline for terminal expiration will be March 15th, 2020.

    Trump signed it into law.

    Rand and Thomas will be completely silent over Trump's actions since it would hurt their hold on power.
