Once upon a time when Democrats weren’t in power, they opposed the dramatic expansion of big government’s surveillance state but now that they are in charge they seem to have had a change of heart.
And why? Because they discovered they could use the surveillance state to persecute their political opponents much in the same way that murderous tyrants in the Soviet Union, China, Iran and Cuba have done and continue to do.
Specifically, Democrats are using the Jan. 6 false flag at the U.S. Capitol Building to refocus the ‘war on terror’ away from overseas threats to ‘domestic terrorism,’ which they have come to broadly define as ‘any conservative, America-firster who supports Donald Trump’s MAGA agenda.’ To learn more about that, you should watch a recently released miniseries called “Patriot Purge” from Fox News host Tucker Carlson for the network’s streaming service, Fox Nation.
To that end, the Democrat regime in the White House also seeks to use other elements of the original 2002 Patriot Act against political opponents, and that includes expanding the country’s notoriously inaccurate “No Fly List” to also include MAGA adherents and all other Trump loyalists, of which there were, at last count, at least 75 million based on the 2020 November election results.
He “has introduced a resolution to combat the political targeting of Americans based on political affiliation via the No-Fly List, which has become a growing concern for many civil rights activists under the Democrat Brandon administration,” according to the National File earlier this week.
In a statement, Gosar, who is a former dentist, said that he was “concerned that the No Fly List, which ostensibly is used to identify terrorists, is being used to target political dissidents.”
He went on to say that “people listed should have a right to an independent tribunal to review the good faith factual basis for the listing,” and “Currently, there is no meaningful legal redress.”
“The Freedom to Travel Act would codify the right to travel, set specific standards on what violations can be used to deny the right to fly, grant harmed persons damages, and reform the law to end the government’s ability to deny Americans due process,” Gosar added.
“Reports that Americans with no criminal backgrounds have been placed on the secretive No Fly List by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), preventing them from air travel, are deeply troubling,” he added.
“There are over 81,000 individuals on the No Fly List, including 1000 American citizens, none of whom were notified or ever given a hearing. Absolutely no due process is provided to American citizens who are being stripped of a fundamental right,” he said. “I am also concerned that the No Fly List, which ostensibly is used to identify terrorists, is being used to target political dissidents.”
Every American citizen is entitled to due process and to be told of any allegations against them and reasons for being placed on the No Fly List. The people listed should have a right to an independent tribunal to review the good faith factual basis for the listing. Currently, there is no meaningful legal redress.
Any listing based on legitimate, demonstrable, provable objective evidence that a person is a “terrorist” should be easy to present by any law enforcement agency. The secrecy and complete lack of neutral fact-finding is un-American and unconstitutional.
“I am proud to introduce this legislation that protects the rights to travel for Americans while ensuring the sensitive balance between legitimate law enforcement and citizen constitutional rights against potential political mistreatment,” Gosar said.
Brandon the mindless isn’t running his regime; it’s being run behind the scenes, by proxy, by former President Obama. Everyone in Washington knows that.
And the goal is to resurrect the ‘fundamental transformation of America’ that the left-wing Marxist former president began in 2008. That includes punishing all dissent.
