Johnson Surrenders to the Watchers!

  |   By Lou Dobbs Staff

Congressman Andy Biggs says the “watchers” want to continue to be able to watch us without having to get a warrant and adhere to the Constitutional constraints they’re supposed to operate under. They’re using misinformation and disinformation through the media to get their message across, that’s what they do for a living and that’s what they’re doing. Biggs says the Speaker has not come out forcefully enough to say there must be warrants. Biggs’ bill ending warrantless surveillance passed through the Judiciary Committee 35 to 2 on a bipartisan vote. Conservatives and Progressives recognize that all Americans have been abused by the surveillance apparatus of the federal government and both sides agree they must be reined in.

Biggs says intel has been buying private databases to build massive databases on every American even thought they claim they’re focusing on people in foreign lands. Biggs says Johnson wakes up every morning as a Conservative, but has a tough time making the decisions and calls necessary to save the Republic. Johnson’s going to have to make hard calls, hard decisions and lead and Biggs is not sure that he can.
