Is the Federal Government Spying on You?

The liberty principle for this Freedom Friday is the fact that Americans should be free from the government spying on us. We learned through the “Russia, Russia” investigation of Trump that the FBI and the federal intelligence agencies had been working secretly to keep Donald Trump from being elected President of the United States in 2016. Then they continued to sabotage his presidency. They did this under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

Now, a two-year extension of FISA is up for a vote in the House of Representatives. Tucker Carlson, founder of Tucker Carlson Network, authored an article that was later edited for length and published at The Daily Signal

Tucker described how we learned that the federal government and intelligence agencies were spying on Trump without a warrant. First, he “whispered about this, then shouted about it, was roundly denounced as a conspiracy nut, a lunatic. But in the end, he was vindicated. It was true.” Tucker continued:

These agencies spied on Trump, and they leaked some of what they learned to the media, which used it against Trump. Then these agencies concocted false stories about Trump. They tried to crush Trump completely in 2016 and then for the entire course of his presidency. Then they did the same thing in 2020 during the presidential election.

And they’re doing it still. They’re trying to put him in prison for the rest of his life. So if we take three steps back, what you have here is what we’re seeing now.

For the third time in three consecutive cycles, secretive federal agencies are trying to rig our presidential election. This is what the Democrats refer to as democracy, and they’re trying to defend it. But of course, it’s the opposite of democracy. It’s, in fact, the end of democracy in any semblance of a constitutional republic we ever had. 

If you have a secret police force threatening people, spying on them, and working secretly the levers of political power, then you don’t have a democracy. You have no control over really anything as a voter.

Tucker explained that the House vote on FISA is to be made tomorrow, and members of the FBI and the intelligence agencies have been lobbying members of the House of Representatives. He likened this activity to an FBI agent coming to your house on election day and forcing you to vote for their favored candidate.

Tucker blamed what is happening in our nation on liars in Congress. He said that the House intel committee is a pawn of the intelligence agencies. Tucker said that he knows the intelligence agencies are spying on Americans because they spied on him for daring to text with a foreigner.
