Is 1984 here Now??!! By Sen. Rand Paul


The National Security Agency’s seizure and surveillance of virtually all of Verizon’s phone customers is an astounding assault on the Constitution.

After revelations that the IRS targeted political dissidents and the Department of Justice seized reporters’ phone records, it would appear that this Administration has now sunk to a new low.

When Sen. Mike Lee and I offered an amendment that would attach Fourth Amendment protections to the FISA bill last year, it was defeated.

And FISA passed by an overwhelming majority of the Senate.

At the time, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid remarked that FISA was “necessary to protect us from the evil in this world.”

The Bill of Rights was designed to protect us from evil, too.

Particularly that evil which always correlates with concentrated government power.

I put together a video last fall to explain that exact point.

NRA: Feinstein Gun Bill ‘Wrong-Headed Approach’…….


The National Rifle Association attacked California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s gun-control proposal on Thursday — blasting it as a “wrong-headed approach” to addressing the nation’s gun violence in light of the Connecticut school shootings last month.

“Senator Feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades,” the association, founded in 1871 and based in Fairfax, Va., said in a statement. “It’s disappointing but not surprising that she is once again focused on curtailing the Constitution instead of prosecuting criminals or fixing our broken mental-health system.

“The American people know gun bans do not work and we are confident Congress will reject Senator Feinstein’s wrong-headed approach.”

Flanked by displays of 10 assault weapons at a Capitol Hill news conference, Feinstein introduced legislation that prohibits the sale, transfer, manufacture and importation of assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition magazines.

The bill, she said, protects 2,200 “specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes.”

“They are by make and model exempted from the legislation,” Feinstein said, according to Reuters. “Finally, the bill subjects existing or grandfathered weapons to a background check in the event the weapon is sold or transferred.”

The Feinstein bill, however, does ban more than 150 other types of weapons, including handguns and shotguns.
