Dear Friend of America's Survival:

Great news: the Amash amendment to gut the NSA's terrorist surveillance programs was defeated in the House by a vote of 217-205. The NSA is part of the Defense Department.

Rep. Tom Cotton of Arkansas said, "I rise to strongly urge opposition to the Amash amendment. This [NSA] program has stopped dozens of terrorist attacks, that means it's saved untold American lives. This amendment is not simple. It does not limit the program. It does not modify it. It does not constrain the program. It ends the program. It blows it up."

Please read Tom Cotton's bio: He joined the United States Army as an Infantry Officer He served nearly five years on active duty, completing two combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He served in Iraq with the 101st Airborne, where he led an infantry platoon in daily combat patrols. Tom's military decorations include the Bronze Star Medal, Combat Infantry Badge, and Ranger Tab.

Rep. Justin Amash, a Republican from Michigan, joined with far-left Rep. John Conyers, Democrat of Michigan, to gut the intelligence-gathering powers of the NSA. Fortunately, THEY FAILED.

In his remarks on the NSA, Cotton went on, "Why do you need it? Verizon, AT&T, and other companies will not keep this data for the years necessary. And secondly, you need it quickly. When I was in Iraq, as platoon leader with the 101st Airborne, if we rolled up a bad guy and we found a cell phone or we found a thumb drive, we would immediately upload that data so intelligence professionals could search it so they could go roll up another bad guy because you only have a few hours to stop a terrorist once you catch another terrorist."

He concluded, "Folks, we are at war. You may not like that truth, I wish it weren't the truth, but it is the truth. We are at war. Do not take away this tool from our warriors on the front lines."

Please call Rep. Cotton's office at 202-225-3772 and thank him for his service and remarks on behalf of the NSA programs.
