The US PATRIOT ACT, first passed in Oct. 2001, ushered in an era of all-out assault on our constitutional freedoms.  Yet Oklahoma’s newly elected Republican Congressman, James Lankford recently voted to renew three of the worst provisions that otherwise would have expired.

Need a briefing?

Listen to the Judge


John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute describes the three provisions now extended:

The “roving wiretaps” provision allows the FBI to wiretap phones in multiple homes without having to provide the target’s name or even phone number – merely the possibility that a suspect “might” use the phone is enough to justify the wiretap.

The “lone wolf” provision allows intelligence gathering of people not suspected of being part of a foreign government or known terrorist organization.

Section 215 allows court-approved seizure of records and property in antiterrorism operations.

Congressman Lankford will hold three townhalls in the next two days at the following times and locations:

Thursday, March 24
2 p.m.
Southern Oaks Library
6900 South Walker Ave
Oklahoma City

6:30 p.m.
Capitol Hill Library
334 SW 26th St
Oklahoma City

Friday, March 25
9 a.m.
VFW
4400 SE 9th
Del City
