Dems’ domestic terrorism bill that sought interagency task force to monitor citizens fails in Senate

Published in Blog on May 25, 2022 by Brianna Kraemer

The Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act pushed by Democrats intended to ramp up federal law enforcement surveillance but failed to pass the Senate on Thursday along partisan lines.

The bill would have created domestic terrorism offices within federal law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security, all of which would have been integrated together for the purposes of monitoring Americans. 

Seen as a privacy invasion to conservatives, all but one House Republican voted against the legislation last week. However, with Democrats in control, the bill passed and moved to the Senate floor this week. The bill needed 60 votes in the Senate to move forward, but with a 47-47 vote along party lines, was blocked.

Although Republicans stopped the privacy infringement from becoming law, D.C. politicians have shown us that they don’t like or trust the American people that elect them into office. The federal government’s idea of a domestic terrorist has changed with the Biden administration to include political opponents and vocal conservatives that are a threat to their agenda. 

The interagency task force was supposed to work to assess and combat the infiltration of white supremacist and neo-Nazis within law enforcement agencies. It also more broadly required the “Federal Government to take steps to prevent domestic terrorism.”

It’s astonishing how far elected officials will go to take away our individual rights to garner as much power as possible. The federal government has grown extensively over the years to a point where citizens don’t have the individual freedoms and self-governance our nation was founded on.

Luckily, we can get back to a more moderate federal government by holding an Article V convention to limit its jurisdiction, impose term limits and create responsible budgets. 

Two-thirds (34) of the states must agree to call a convention, and 19 states have already passed the Convention of States resolution. Soon enough, the states will come together to be a check on the federal government and its career politicians.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
