ACTION PLAN REGARDING S. 1959: HOW TO STOP IT IN ITS TRACKS (AND THIS WILL WORK!!)
A) Challenge the validity of the 404-6 “votes” in the House of Representatives for HR 1955 (if appropriate):
Because a number of politicians have registered a lack of familiarity with the bill. 23 House members were absent while the bill was voted for. Rep. Lynn Woolsey, Rep. Barbara Lee, and Rep. Payne were all at a house party where a friend of mine attended, who responded to the concern about S. 1959/HR 1955 by saying things like “oh, do you mean Bill #205” and stuff like that. They seemed “very sketchy” about the bill, said my friend who attended the house party. I also have read about other politicians knowing nothing about this bill. This needs to be researched and, if appropriate, challenged formally: Did the bill REALLY pass the House with 404-6 votes? Maybe yes. Maybe not?
B) Expose in writing and sue the corporation which is funding the passage of S.1959/HR 1955:
I read about a subsidiary of Haliburton sponsoring this bill but regret that I lost the link and the article. Does anybody know about this? Please post below if so. I will research this and see what I can do to get the exact information posted: Stay tuned for an edit to this article. If so it will be posted right here, in this exact paragraph. TO HIT CORPORATIONS IN THE POCKETBOOK IS KEY TO WINNING OUR CAUSE.
C) Gather 100,000 donations on the Internet of $20 each to amount to $2,000,000, and file a lawsuit against the US Government for passing free speech-chilling legislation.
I suggest the Center for Constitutional Rights should be handed the lawsuit, because their head attorney Michael Rattner has been very vocal about S. 1959/HR 1955 and been advocating civilian pro-activity. And while the ACLU has made statements about the bill and registered utmost concern, they also have not circulated an email petition to gather signatures to topple it. I suggest CCR’s Michael Ratner is more “on the ball” on this one than the ACLU. But either entity would be excellent to do the suit.
D) Create a petition
(Opednews, will you please, please do this, immediately!) and gather signatures all over the web to stop S .1959. In that petition, there Must be a request to Senators to promise a filibuster if the bill passes: Very important!
The petition should have additional bullet points:
1) Quoting text of the bill to prove that this bill DOES clamp down on civil liberties*
2) Reminding Congress that we PAY them to uphold, protect and defend the Constitution, as is their sworn oath of office to do.
3) Demand that Sen. Susan Collins and Rep. Jane Harmon, who drafted and introduced this bill targeting thought and not action as the ACLU says, step down from public office.
(Even if Sen. Collins and Rep. Harmon don’t resign, the message will be clear: The Senate will be less likely to pass the bill and legislators will realize that they can’t just literally get away with murder, given a People which refuses to lie down as passively as we have in the past. We’ve got to prove the stuff we are made of, NOW, before free speech is lost and it is simply too late!)
E) Create a Civilian Commission
Whose function would be to spy on the government infiltrators to be sent to the College campuses under this bill, to report back to the ACLU and Center for Constitutional Rights, who in turn would sue the government based on these civilian reports. In other words, if the government is going to shadow us, we will shadow them right back! We aren’t going to lie down and just take it all: We WILL fight back!
