NEW! Congress will be debating the Renewal of the "Patriot Act" this week.

Congress will begin debating the renewal of the PATRIOT Act this week. Some sections of the landmark surveillance law, passed in the wake of 9/11, will expire by the end of the year unless Congress votes to reauthorize them. Congressional leaders haven’t said what they want to do, but a group of Democrats who think the law gives government too much snooping power hope to use the renewal as an opportunity to scale things back.


Please CALL, EMAIL AND FAX your Congresspeople and tell them why they should not renew this.

Let's see some of these supposedly

newly libertarian-leaning Republicans help eliminate the Patriot Act.

HMMM - What a shocker ...

A new "terrorist cell" is discovered just in time for the Congress to renew the UN Patriot Act.

This morning MSNBC has a BREAKING NEWS ALERT on the bottom of the screen. It read: FBI & Homeland Security know of no specific terror threat.

B R E A K I N G N E W S !

Can you believe these propagandist?

Black Ops

I agree, I find it hard to believe and it's all propaganda. Memphis Tenn had a terrorist Alert this morning. I hope Dailypaulers will help get the word out, about the Up coming Renewal of the "Patriot Act"

Take Action

Good Update. We just put up an Alert. You can email or phone your reps right from this website:


Please make sure to use the link to send your friends to this page. It's something both Republicans and Democrats can sink their teeth into.

If we push this to the democratic congress, we win either way because they will either oppose it and stop treading on our liberties, or they will display their true colors and show they world how awful they are when it comes to doing anything more than talking about civil rights.


DailyPaul please TAKE ACTION

Tell everyone you know to contact there reps to shoot this Unconstitutional UnPatriotic Act DOWN!

Thanks for the info, Henri. I had no idea this was going on. This is insanity! Just in time for G20, huh??


I agree on the insanity, it seems that they have a plan to push thru multipal bills and agendas to spread the American Patriots to thin to be effective on any one agenda.

Anyone voting in favor ,

Anyone voting in favor , favors lawlessness.

Will It Result in a Repeat of Last Years Vote

because the campaign contributions and lobbying by the telcoms won out and they renewed the FISA bill. Look for it to happen this year - record amount of lobbying this year.

What’s changed since the vote of 2008?

2009 Lobby Effort to Congress
At&T -$8.19 million
Verizon -$9.2 million
Sprint/Nextel -$1.3 million
2009 Total Telephone Utility Lobby -$22.2 million


I just

finished sending a letter about this, good to see this post.

"September 15, 2009


The Senate Committee on the Judiciary will hold a hearing entitled "Reauthorizing the USA PATRIOT Act: Ensuring Liberty and Security" on Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. in Room 226 of the Senate Dirksen Office Building.

Are the recent terror plots in America false flags

to sway public opinion in favor of the Patriot Act? Talk radio has gone bullistic saying things like " We still live under terror threats every day." Beware O' conservatives of wolves in sheeps clothing, ie, Hannity, Limbagh, Savage, Beck, and all the other war mongers.

Health care is just a diversion to misdirect public opinion away from the unconstitutional war that continues to devestate the poor citizens of the middle east and enrich the wealthy oil tycoons.

Also the recent so-called terror suspects being rounded up by the FBI are being used as a tool to influence Congress's vote on the Patriot Act and more US troops for Afghanistan.
