Rand Paul's Latest Stand Has Bought Another Chance for Real Surveillance Reform

UPDATE: Senator Paul is standing firm on his promise to hold out for better surveillance reforms. Since Senator McConnell has thus far shown no indication that he will allow the amendment votes that Rand has asked for, there is a good chance that Section 215 of the Patriot Act will be allowed to expire Sunday night.

Patriot Act Renewal Action Happening Fast: See What's Coming Up

Set to expire at the end of May, Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act is only one of a number of authorities the government uses to defy the 4th Amendment and spy on millions of Americans without a direct warrant. Nevertheless, its upcoming sunset date provides defenders of liberty a strong chance to make serious move back towards our founders’ intention that:

House to Vote on Cybersecurity Bills with Major Privacy Issues

Next week is "Cyber Week" in the House, and two deeply flawed bills are heading to the floor that would further undermine the privacy of every American's data. These bills are intended to address the very real problem of companies having their databases hacked and their information stolen, but fail to adequately ensure that your personal information is protected when companies send information about these cyber attacks to the government.

“Sneak and Peek” Warrants Are Abused by Law Enforcement

Section 213 of the PATRIOT Act creates what is known as “sneak and peek” warrant. Law enforcement is authorized to conduct a search without first notifying the subject of the search. After 9/11, law enforcement insisted that this measure was necessary to investigate and prevent future terrorist attacks “without tipping off the terrorists.”

Passing the USA Freedom Act: Everybody Wins

Last week, Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) re-introduced a bill to protect Americans from unauthorized government spying, the USA Freedom Act (S. 2685). After the House passed a dangerously watered-down version of the bill earlier this year, the new Senate bill represents a compromise - much stronger than the House bill, though not as comprehensive as privacy activists might desire.

House Passes Amendment to Limit the NSA's Spying - See How Your Representative Voted Here!

On Thursday night, the House of Representatives voted on an amendment (H.Amdt. 935), led by Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY), that would require the NSA and other intelligence agencies to follow due process and obtain a warrant to collect the communications of American citizens. Congress has come close to passing limitations on government surveillance since Edward Snowden exposed the extent of the NSA's intrusion into our privacy, but consistently came just a few votes shy.
