This is Why American Voters are “in Open Rebellion”!

Paul Ryan
Written by Onan Coca

 

“Paul Ryan budget will admit more Muslim migrants this year than Iowa Republican voters…” — Matt Drudge

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is right.

Early Friday morning he was busy on the Senate floor excoriating the House for their passage of the Omnibus Bill. During his tirade against the Omnibus bill he said something that I think may be the most insightful thing i’ve heard from a politician in years.

Basically, Sessions argued that the Omnibus bill is the perfect example of why the American voters are in “open rebellion” against the establishment in both parties. He’s exactly, 100% correct. Democrat voters have taken to flirting with outright socialism in Bernie Sanders and GOP voters are contemplating voting for Donald Trump because they are so tired of the GOP establishment.

Watch as Senator Sessions explains:

Why I Oppose the Privacy-Killing Omnibus Spending Bill

If you use Facebook– and that’s everyone who sees this post – then your relationship with Facebook will be redefined by the government if the #Omnibus spending bill before the Senate is passed into law. Tomorrow we are scheduled to vote on a 2,000 page spending bill to fund the government through the end of next year. It was crafted in a back-room deal with almost no input from most members of Congress. Because of the “must-pass” nature of the bill, those in the room air-dropped controversial cybersecurity legislation into the bill, hoping no one would object. If this bill passes, you will no longer have the ability to sue a company like Facebook if they share your personal data in a “grossly negligent” manner. In the past with bills like SOPA, PIPA, and CISPA, when the government tried to strong-arm companies into hostile relationships with their end users, Americans have spoken up to give the companies the encouragement they need to oppose these bills. Those familiar with the fate of these previous proposals know that they never became law. The online community that can be mobilized to protect the carefully balanced relationship of trust that exists between tech companies and their users is strong enough to stop these kinds of bills when the online community chooses to engage.This is a proposal that benefits big government first by giving the government access to your personal information that you have shared in confidence with private companies like Facebook. The proposal also helps companies like Facebook by eliminating the legal risk to them for sharing the information. This proposal hurts the end user of Facebook’s products by dramatically undermining the privacy of Facebook users through government fiat. Because this proposal puts Facebook in a difficult position where the law is good for Facebook the company but terrible for Facebook the community, Facebook needs to know that you, the users of Facebook, support them in fighting for your privacy against an intrusive government.For this reason, I am letting Mark Zuckerberg know that as a United States Senator representing the good people of Utah that I have read this legislation, and I oppose it. We can do better when it comes to protecting the privacy of Americans as we continue to place more and more of our trust in innovative companies like Facebook. I hope you will join me in bringing this issue to Mark Zuckerberg’s attention and also to the attention of your friends and family by sharing this post. We still have at least twenty-four hours before we vote on this bill. In the past, the Facebook community that follows my page has been able to reach almost 100 million people. Smaller online protests have stopped previous invasive cybersecurity proposals in their tracks. However, in the past Americans have had longer than twenty-four hours to mobilize opposition to these kinds of proposals. I hope you will join me in this effort before we run out of time. #StopCISA
