Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

I have completely lost respect for Utah Senator Mike Lee, a dupe of far left-wing Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy. Lee, supposedly a conservative, wants to disarm the NSA. Lee and Senator Rand Paul should join the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

Right now, as I write this message, the Senate is debating passage of the so-called USA Freedom Act. It passed the House. But it’s defective. It places so-called metadata in private hands, and the NSA and FBI will have a difficult time getting access to it when foreign terrorists are contacting their American agents about killing Americans. That is when the links have to be made in order to stop terrorist attacks.

Amendments are now being proposed to try to fix the House bill. These amendments have to be passed. Call your Senators at 202-224-3121.

I’m also sick of the recluse and hermit Matt Drudge, who ran this sensational but misleading headline when Rand Paul terminated the NSA’s terrorist surveillance authority:

I note in my column: Despite the implication behind this misleading headline on Drudge’s influential website, people were always “free to chat.” That phrase contributes to the lingering misperception that the NSA is listening to ordinary Americans’ telephone conversations and gathering private and personal data about their lives.

These are Rand Paul’s and Mike Lee’s national security experts.

Don’t be fooled. This is a KGB-style “disinformation” campaign against the NSA. Read my column and call your Senators NOW.

For America's Survival,

Cliff Kincaid, President
