Unlimited Access to Communications of Every American

By The Coach, Contributing Editor

Recently I received information that Congress passed a bill, before leaving on their 2014 Christmas recess, which gives federal law enforcement the legal authority to have unlimited access to every means of communication that American citizens conduct.

I immediately recognized that this appeared to be a violation of the fourth (4) amendment of the U. S. Constitution. How can Congress pass a law that circumvents the U. S. Constitution? I thought it took a two thirds, 2/3, majority vote of Congress to make a change to the U. S. Constitution.

Being a retired police officer of over forty (40) years, I always needed a warrant to use a wiretap or obtain other forms of communication from a person I was investigating.

So I read the article that I had received, “Congress Passes Bill Which Grants Unlimited Access to Communications of Every American” by Paul Joseph Watson. (See reference # 1 below)

That article really disturbed me. So I searched and found an additional article, Congress Passes Bill Giving Police Unlimited Access to Citizens’ Private Communications” .The article was written by Jay Syrmopoulos on December 11, 2014. (See reference # 2 below)

After reading the second article, which basically said the same thing as the first, I had to read the passed bill for myself. I then found the bill, H.R. 4681: SEC. 309., PROCEDURES FOR THE RETENTION OF INCIDENTALLY ACQUIRED COMMUNICATIONS. (See reference # 3 below).

While researching the bill I came across the vote that was made by the Senate to pass this bill. The legislation passed with a House vote of 325-100. According to the above listed articles, it appears that they did not even read the bill.

If you want to see how your Senator voted on this bill, see reference # 4 below. Each state and each U. S. Senator is listed and how they voted on this bill. ALL of the Senators in the Louisiana delegation, as a conservative state that Louisiana is, voted for this bill. [Rourke: I was very happy to see most of the Representatives in my state of South Carolina did NOT vote for it – and my local rep Mick Mulvaney did not support it.]

I am NOT an attorney or practice law in any way but this does NOT sound right. It does not pass the smell test. It was then that I learned that this provision in this bill was placed there at the last minute and no Congress person appeared to have bothered to read the bill before they voted on it.

INTERESTING!!!!!!!!!!!

If I am reading this bill correctly, the federal law enforcement community, under this newly passed law, can now recover or intercept ANY and ALL communications, no matter the type, if they are sent over the internet, cell phone, land line telephone, stored in your computer or on a thumb drive or ANYWHERE else, without a warrant and use the information against you and to prosecute you and it is NOW all legal.

But what about the U. S. Constitution? I really do not know the answer to that.

There are also provisions in this bill for any intercepted communication to be kept for MORE than five (5) years.

How come we have not heard of this on ANY of the national news media?

ALL of our constitutional rights are being taken away from us. Yet we do nothing about it!

Our Founding Fathers wrote the U. S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights and all of the other documents that we used to treasure. They fought for and gave their lives so we could have these freedoms. Yet we let them go without a second thought.

What is it going to take for us to stand up and say, enough is enough!

When are we going to tell our Senators and Representatives that we will not stand for these travesties of injustice against the American people?

When are we going to hold the people that we elect to office responsible for what they do in Washington?

It seems that once we elect these people, they go to Washington and do what they want and forget why we elected them!

If I am wrong, please let me know!

  1. Coach,

    I agree 100% with you that this EPICALLY fails the sniff test. It seems that almost on a weekly basis we slip farther and farther away from our founding principles and lose more control of our freedom. It is sometimes hard to believe that it was just about32 years ago that the media loved to uncover this kind of stuff. Now it seems that the media is working in collusion with some in the government to only feed the public information that they think we need to know. It is very unnerving to find out that we what we say or write is now being watched, or stored for future review. So I wonder, if the media isn’t doing it? It really begs the question, ‘who watches the watchers’?

  2. Well…there’s always carrier pigeons, of course we need to be watchful lest the stool variety infect our flock.

    Fools will always trade freedom for security.

  3. I hate to tell you, but ‘single sideband’ will not save you from ‘gummint’ intrusion into your personal communications. Their electronic monitors/scanners scan EVERY point of the scale, and all those in between. Single sideband is not the least bit of a problem for the sophisticated scanning equipment available today, even equipment available to the general public.

    I know of NOTHING, except the most sophisticated (read expensive) equipment that is able to defeat that which is available to NSA, the police, and/or other agencies who want your information – period.

    The only think I can think of that would defeat them accessing your communication(s) is to develop a personal code language that is understood ONLY between you and the sender/receiver. Babies, usually twins, develop their own language to communicate with each other before they learn their ‘native’ language. Their personal language defies even their birth mothers understanding.

    Their may be other ways, but I am not aware of them – though I would love to know of other ways.

    Blessings, and welcome to the ‘future.’

  4. Every author of every article keeps asking the same tired old question, “When will the people stand up”? Instead of asking when will they stand up, why not ask when will we lay down? As in lay down the cell phone, laptop, ipad, smartphone, cancel facebook, and then see what these freaks of government have to monitor. Nothing, that’s what, then it’s all over. But we know that is not going to happen either, so what the founding fathers shouted from the rooftops, we now whisper in the basements. thanks and God bless.

  5. Yep your mail to the postoffice photographs every letter and stores
    The image in a large data base
    Now they know where it came from and where it goes but not
    what’s in it!
    So it seams the snail mail is still a little secure?

  6. Huckleberry the Gen X “dunderninnies” you are mocking are way more savvy about communications than you apparently realize. The current technology boom is not brought to you by 70 year old men in the garage out back.

  7. the only way we can stop this is to cut off the money they get. And the only way we can do that is— Everyone quit working, no income, no tax money for Washington. Listen to them squeal!!!!
