Congress Is Poised to Give Trump Administration Powerful New Spying Powers

According to news reports, members of Congress are lobbying to add the Preventing Emerging Threats Act of 2018to the Federal Aviation Agency Reauthorization Act. Proponents of the bill claim that it will make our country safer. But, in reality, the drone legislation will give new surveillance powers to the Trump administration to spy on journalists, activists, and other Americans without a warrant. 

 

Those of you who need a reminder why I, and many others, still continue to talk about the 9/11 attacks, the cover-up, the Treason:

“It happened with the Patriot Act after 9/11, and members of Congress and government officials are now employing similar arguments again. “

Of course they are. They have a winning formula for turning America into a police state, a cash cow, a fascist empire. That was always the intent. That was always the plan.

Despite nonsensical dismissals from so-called leaders like Chomsky, the 9/11 attacks and the strategy around it are alive and well, and fucking us all right now again. Chomsky claims 9/11 has no “significance,” and if you believe that, you deserve to be dragged off to the fucking gulags, you brain-dead slab of meat.

Wagner also said that the “ORR is not legally responsible for children after they are released from ORR care” and handed over to a sponsor. In 2017 alone, more than 40,000 children were taken from the U.S.-Mexico border by the Department of Homeland Security and handed over to the ORR.

This empire becomes more evil by the hour.

Trump-Caligula copy

The latest fascist scapegoat from the extreme-right playbook…

President Trump regularly makes statements indicating he would like to emulate policies of China, the Philippines, and Singapore by executing drug sellers, according to a report by Axios.

Given Trump’s embrace of the Philippines’ Rodrigo Duterte, who has overseen a large-scale campaign of state-sanctioned murder, it’s no surprise that Trump is saying he wants to execute drug sellers. But executions are not only barbaric and illegal under international law—they also don’t work.

It’s appalling and shameful that in the midst of a major overdose crisis, Trump continues to ignore proven policies that save lives, and instead seeks to emulate the behavior of killers. 

Tell Congress it’s time to embrace evidence-based policies and to resist any attempts to escalate the failed war on drugs.
