FreedomWorks Praises Sen. Mike Lee's Stand for the Fourth Amendment

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- This afternoon, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) offered a series of proposals on the floor of the Senate to allow votes on a number of bi-partisan amendments to the USA Freedom Reauthorization Act, H.R. 6172. Each request was promptly objected to and blocked by Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), the Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. Jason Pye, FreedomWorks’ Vice President of Legislative Affairs, commented:

Senator Burrtrays Principle and Party on Rescissions

There’s almost always a Republican who gets in the way of a positive legislative victory. On health insurance reform, there were a few, including Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), who blocked the “skinny repeal” of ObamaCare from moving forward. It almost happened on tax reform because of Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.). On nearly every issue, Sen. Susan Collins (?-Maine) plays a key part in it. Yesterday, joining Sen. Collins, was Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), who played the part of Judas.

With Viber’s Latest Update, Congress is Losing the Encryption Battle

WhatsApp, the popular online messaging service, recently changed the landscape of the encryption debate after announcing that their entire platform, between all devices, would offer end-to-end encryption. This announcement was made on the tail end of Apple’s dispute with the FBI, precisely about breaking into encrypted iPhones. This past week, Viber, another popular messaging app, announced that their latest update would also include end-to-end encryption for all of its users.

Anti-Encryption Bill is an Affront to Privacy, Technological Security

In recent months, the government has regularly been unable to underscore technological security and privacy in the digital sphere, as more and more tech companies turn to encrypting their data. From the Apple case to the recent WhatsApp encryption overhaul, individuals have witnessed a glimmer of hope that their privacy may once again be protected from government interference. However, this consumer privacy is in danger once more as Congress seeks to nullify the system of encryption.
