Default While you are being distracted by impeachment . . .

. . . all the illegal stuff done by the Obama DOJ that the IG report is about to expose and Durham is investigating (FISA §702(16)(17) search abuse) is about to be re-authorized without any restrictions.

I guess this is why the IG report has been delayed, delayed, delayed -- to get past the re-authorization.

Trump, knowing what happened to him in the run-up to the 2016 election should veto the Continuing Resolution (CR) that will temporarily fund the government. -- problem is, he'll get blamed for shutting the useless federal government down . . .

From Congressman Thomas Massie:


"Congress will vote to extend warrantless data collection provisions of the #PatriotAct, by hiding this language on page 25 of the Continuing Resolution (CR) that temporarily funds the government. To sneak this through, Congress will first vote to suspend the rule which otherwise gives us (and the people) 72 hours to consider a bill.

The scam here is that Democrats are alleging abuse of Presidential power, while simultaneously reauthorizing warrantless power to spy on citizens that no President should have... in a bill that continues to fund EVERYTHING the President does... and waiving their own rules to do it.

I predict Democrats will vote on a party line to suspend the 72 hour rule. But after the rule is suspended, I suspect many Republicans will join most Democrats to pass the CR with the Patriot Act extension embedded in it.

It’s quite possible that your member of Congress doesn’t even know the Patriot Act reauthorization is in the CR. Here’s a phone directory of the House of Representatives.

At the end of today, I will post the roll call vote on the resolution to waive the 72 hour rule, as well as the roll call vote for passage of the CR that contains the Patriot Act extension."
