I can't find anything from the last 4 hrs updating the situation. You would think that with less than 2 hrs left, we would have heard something by now.

According to ABC and other MSM news, it is a done deal. Senate failed to pass renewal Sunday evening, and provisions of the Patriot Act will expire at midnight.

No Patriot Act renewal?

Chances are they don't need it because there are bits and pieces of it scattered around in various other pieces of legislation.

It's an unpopular piece of legislation, but you can safely bet that in one form or another the industry and infrastructure behind it still exists in one for or another.

In other words...they don't need it anymore because they probably have something like it, called something else.

So long Patriot Act, well part of you anyway, for now. In a matter of days it will be renewed because the Gov't won't let their spy baby go, ever. Congrats to Paul for doing all he could.

www.nbcnews.com...


The National Security Agency's authority to collect troves of bulk telephone metadata under the post-Sept. 11 USA Patriot Act will expire at midnight after Republican senators were unable to make a deal Sunday.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell sought a two-week extension of two less controversial provisions of the Patriot Act, but that effort was blocked by Sen. Rand Paul, his fellow Kentucky Republican who is running for president partly on his strong objections to the surveillance programs.

The provisions of the Patriot Act that are expiring are what's known as Section 215, which authorizes the NSA's bulk collection of telephone metadata; a provision giving intelligence agencies powers to follow terrorists who may not be affiliated with a terrorist group; and roving wiretaps, which give intelligence agencies the ability to monitor someone who may use a number of different telephone lines to evade detection.

Well, Rand did it. I have to say, now I don't know what party I want to register with for a primary vote. Getting Sanders or Paul into the general election.

There will be this big song and dance showing everyone about how they had to cancel it because of a rogue Senator.

Everyone will think it's gone.

Then, in a few years, there will be some big scandal about how they are still collecting all your records that they were under PATRIOT, using authority of some bill under a different name that no one ever heard of.

It's typical playbook of the NWO.

If it passes we need to elect Rand Paul POTUS. He has Vowed to sign a Executive Order on his first day in office to end the NSA surveillance .



Long gone are the days where that would matter.

Someone once put an EO in to start the fight against central banking, long before they were as powerful and corrupt as they are now.

He died shortly after- something about cranial lead poisoning. Right in plain view, in front of everyone.

These days they wouldn't be so rash- they don't need to be. Simply keep on keeping on without his approval. What's he going to do, shut them down himself?

I don't think so.

So who thinks there will be an engineered terror event in the US in the next days/weeks?
You know,just to show everyone how much the government needs to spy on everyone to "keep us safe."

I hope not,but would not be surprised.

Of course I doubt the ABC agencies will "turn off" the surveillance computers just because some pesky senators didn't vote for the freedom act...
I mean its not as though people can go into the NSA to check up is it?

I don't have a feeling the patriotic people of USA are are going to make a dent in what they're attempting to ... create.. No one listens to the people in 'the white washed house' anymore. They do what they want, they listen to themselves and no one else. Something new has to happen, something different, something those in power won't expect. Otherwise nothing will change. Just telling it like it is.

That statement could be one of hope or naivete.

History will show that the chances of bipartisan support are slim. Even if the patriot act is abolished there is a good chance that it could become something else entirely; the name may change but the rules may stay the same.

From You: "They're not going to dismantle all that infrastructure because we the people and a few politicians want them to."
I know right?
Considering the huge new Data collection center that was built,
they will not just leave it empty!
A Co-Worker of My Dad's Son worked on that complex.
He said it is extremely HUGE!!! Syx...
