The Patriot Act or known by its long title as – An Act to deter and punish terrorist acts in the United States and across the globe, to enhance law enforcement investigatory tools and for other purposes – was enacted into law by George W. Bush in 2001, after the Twin Tower attacks of September 11.
The Act has been highly controversial in a number of ways, one being the Patriot Act’s expansion of court jurisdiction to allow nationwide service of search warrants.
It also gives the government powers to imprison you for non-terror crimes and take your rights to a fair trial away.
“No Judge, no jury, no due process” Alex Jones of InfoWars stated when discussing the fact that the government are imprisoning people who entered the Capitol Building on January 6th 2021.
Over a decade ago, Jones exposed how states throughout the country beta-tested the Patriot Act against thousands of times against American Citizens for non-terror crimes, clearly abusing their power.
The Act has also been expanded to include domestic surveillance against journalists and political activists.
The January 6 House Select Committee has said they will target those who support former President Donald Trump and anyone who questions the results of the 2020 presidential election.
Also of concern is the recent announcement from the Department of Justice, stating that parents who attend school board meetings are domestic terrorists if they voice their concerns about their child’s curriculum.
It’s sad that the “Land of the Free, Home of the Brave” has become a surveillance state, determined to undermine your freedom.
