An article from Reason magazine about the results of the vote to temporarily reauthorize Section 702 of the NDAA. The final vote was 310-118 with bipartisan support. 147 Democrats and 63 Republicans voted for unconstitutional, warrantless surveillance of the American people. This is terrible news for libertarians as discussed in a previous post.

An article about a federal surveillance bill pending in the House called the FISA Reform and Reauthorization Act that, if it passes, will substantially expand the federal government’s digital surveillance powers used to track digital communications unwarranted through its Section 702 database. Edward Snowden among other civil libertarians have criticized this measure as the biggest infringement on your privacy rights since the PATRIOT Act. Libertarians especially should be wary of this. This nakedly authoritarian bill should be strongly opposed and voted down. The future of freedom as we know depends on it.

An article from Reason magazine about taxpayer-subsidized cop training seminars in New Jersey that encourage cops to engage in arbitrary and illegal traffic stops. This is a blatant attack on the Fourth Amendment.
