Overseeing the Panopticon: Due Process and Transparency Reforms for Section 215

Four years after the passage of the USA FREEDOM Act, Section 215 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and its related “lone wolf” and “roving wiretap” provisions are back up for reauthorization. Section 215 is best known for being the portion of law used to justify the dragnet, warrantless mass collection of tens of millions of Americans’ phone call data, as revealed in 2013 by Edward Snowden. Although the USA FREEDOM Act of 2015 did make some substantial advances in curbing warrantless mass surveillance of Americans, disclosures over the intervening four years have borne out concerns that it was an incomplete reform.

Support the Ending Mass Collection of Americans' Phone Records Act, H.R. 1942 and S. 936

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and senators and urge them to cosponsor the Ending Mass Collection of Americans’ Phone Records Act, H.R. 1942 and S. 936. Introduced by Reps. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) and Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) and Sens. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.), the Ending Mass Collection of Americans’ Phone Records Act would end the National Security Agency’s controversial call detail records program.

BY Adam Brandon

The Orwellian H.R. 1 “For the People Act” threatens the very existence of our First Amendment right to speak and associate freely.

Time for Congress to Reform Civil Asset Forfeiture After Court Ruling

BY Adam Brandon

Back in 2015, an eye-catching headline appeared in the news. “Law enforcement took more stuff from people than burglars did last year,” the headline read. Think about that for a moment. That’s millions of dollars in cash, homes, and cars stolen not by burglars or carjackers, but by police departments across the country. What’s worse, most of the property has been seized from people who were not even charged with a crime. You’d think this was an anecdote from a former resident of the Soviet Union, but no, this is happening here in America, the land of the free.

Coalition Letter in Opposition to H.R. 1

On Wednesday, FreedomWorks sent a coalition letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), House Minority Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Senate Majority Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) signed by representatives from more than 30 organizations against H.R. 1. This legislation would have the effect of nationalizing elections, make the Federal Elections Commission a partisan entity, and have a chilling effect on political speech. Signers to the letter include Adam Brandon of FreedomWorks, Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform, Pete Sepp of the National Taxpayers Union, Tim Chapman of Heritage Action, and David McIntosh of the Club for Growth. The text of the letter is below and a PDF of the letter and the signers can be found here.

The HR 1 'Incumbent Protection Act' destroys free elections

BY Adam Brandon

Rep. John Sarbanes, D-Md., represents arguably the most gerrymandered congressional district in the country, and he wants to keep it that way. His latest piece of legislation, H.R. 1 “For the People Act,” would force taxpayers to fund congressional campaigns.

Oppose the So-Called “For the People Act,” H.R. 1

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to oppose the so-called “For the People Act,” H.R. 1. Introduced by Rep. John Sarbanes (D-Md.), the For the People Act would deter political free speech and federalize elections. This is one of the more bold-faced assaults on the First Amendment that has come through Congress in quite some time.
