Rock River Patriots Meeting This Friday June 14th

The Rock River Patriots will be having a meeting this Friday June 14th at 6:00pm in Fort Atkinson at the Dwight Foster Library.  The Dwight Foster Library is located at 209 Merchants Avenue in Fort Atkinson.

At this meeting, we will receive an update on the WI budget process from Rep. Steve Nass.  We will also discuss the recent “Big Brother Government Spying” revelations that have come to light and hear the story of one whistle-blower on this issue.

The RRP have continually spoke out against the Patriot Act and the Federal Gov’t spying on American citizens without a warrant.  In light of all the recent scandals and abuses of power, why would we trust them to do the right thing.  Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.  Instead, we need to bind the government down by the chains of the Constitution”, as one of our Founding Fathers had said.  The government’s primary function is to protect our freedom and keep us free, not to provide “cradle to the grave” security.  When government keeps us free and protects our liberty, we are made safer.  However, when government assumes ultimate power and authority in order to protect us, they will ultimately always protect themselves (government).

Federal Judge OKs Installation of Surveillance Cameras Without a Warrant

I guess private property isn’t really private after-all.  This is the epitome of BIG BROTHER!!!  This stems from another drug case, which along with “terrorism” cases seem to take our constitutional protections and throw them out the window.

Federal Judge OKs Installation of Surveillance Cameras Without a Warrant

On October 29, a federal district court judge ruled that police can enter onto privately owned property and install secret surveillance cameras without a warrant.

The judge did set forth a few guidelines that must be followed before such activity would be permissible, but the fact that such a scenario is accepted as constitutional by a federal judge is a serious setback for privacy and for the Fourth Amendment.

The Fourth Amendment guarantees:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Jesse Ventura Sues TSA In Pat-Down Smackdown

No matter what you think of Jesse Ventura, he is doing us all a service here.  Does anyone think the “Porn and Grope” routine is not violating our 4th Amendment rights?  And is this routine even effective?  The government even admits that on secret “tests” TSA agents missed guns and bombs.
