The recent capitualtion of the United States House of Representaives to the Bush Administrations demands for TELECOM IMMUNITY in anticipation of the United States Senate following suit shall not stand. Congress is empowered to pass laws. If they pass a bad law it needs to be repealed. This is bad law and this site seeks to have this law repealed.

The US Senate must vote NO on the FISA compromise

Petition Your GovernmentThe new FISA bill is part of a continuing campaign of collusion between Congress and the Bush administration, immunizing not only the telecommunications companies, but the administration and any members of Congress, on either side of the aisle, that may have been involved in illegal wiretaps.  This is unconstitutional and potentially criminal.

The new ‘compromise’ FISA Bill (PDF) was just made public, which, the Electronic Frontier Foundation reports, ‘contains blanket immunity for telecoms that helped the NSA break the law and spy on millions of ordinary Americans. The Senate debates this new bill next week.  Previously Obama had stated that he would support Chris Dodds filibuster of any FISA bill containing immunity for telecoms.  Now he has stated that he would support the “compromise” bill.    “Given the legitimate threats we face, providing effective intelligence collection tools with appropriate safeguards is too important to delay. So I support the compromise, but do so with a firm pledge that as president, I will carefully monitor the program,” Obama said in a statement hours after the House approved the legislation 293-129.

Sorry, but careful monitoring isn’t good enough.  Defeating this bill or amending it to exclude immunity is the only way to protect our already eviscerated Constitution.

Contact your Senator immediately and flood the phone lines to voice your opposition to this bill. 

 In particular, contact Senator Obama and tell him you expect him to keep his word to Senators Feingold and Dodd.  Call and write often.  He can be reached at these numbers:
