seek and obtain protection in another State or Territory.
.
In Section Three: Equal Protection is extended to
be binding upon the Federal Government.
.
In Section Four: Presidential powers to grant Reprieves
and Pardons are expanded.
.
In Section Five: The Patriot Act is repealed and its
effects are waived.
.
In Section Six: Congress has the power to
investigate all lesser courts in the United States.

a warrant of probable cause is outlawed, and
detainment of enemy combatants as such in Guantanamo
ends within sixty days, unless Congress declares war.

The text of the
FREEDOM RESTORATION AMENDMENT:
.
June 16, 2013, 3:03 PM Eastern US time

.
Section One
Full Faith and Credit cannot be lawfully invoked to
sustain or further perpetrate any violation of the rights
of any citizen or lawful inhabitant of the United States;
as these rights are described within, or with respect to,
the Constitution of the United States.
.
Section Two
Any citizen, or other lawful inhabitant of the
United States; who shall arrange for protected sanctuary
in or by one State or Territory with the government
thereof as a result of violations of this Constitution
which are reasonably averred to have been perpetrated by
any State or Territorial government or the judiciary thereof
against the individual accordingly seeking protection:
shall in consequence
be granted such Constitutionally protective
sanctuary, political asylum, refuge,
and change in State citizenship as though the arrangement
for protected sanctuary were made with another country
as requested; unless the State or Territory in which
sanctuary is accordingly sought, shall state good cause
to refute the request as without sufficient foundation to be
Constitutionally valid with respect to fact or by law.

Upon the granting of such Constitutionally protective
sanctuary, the State of new residence of any citizen
invoking this Amendment may make arrangements
with the State of former residence, on behalf of any
individual seeking Constitutionally protective sanctuary,
to nullify past or current legal matters pending against
that individual in the State of former residence.
.
Section Three
All Equal Protection of the Laws conditions which are
binding upon State governments in this Constitution, shall
also be binding upon the United States Government and
upon the governments or administrations of all places
under the civilian or military jurisdiction of the United States.
.
Section Four
The President, as well as any Offices under his authority
charged with this task: shall have power to grant
Reprieves and Pardons for all alleged offenses
against the United States;
and shall have power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for
alleged offenses against any State or Territory, whenever
any State or Territorial government is reasonably averred
to have violated the privileges and immunities or rights
of any individual as enumerated in this Constitution;
or in any instance wherein the rights of an individual in the
United States have been unlawfully abridged with material
harm as a consequence or result of actions taken under
color of law, regardless of any prior conviction or charge.

Congress shall have power to grant Emergency Disaster
Assistance to individual victims of disasters which are
inflicted by Government, or under color of authority,
in any way which violates this Constitution.

This Amendment shall nullify any prior conflicting laws
of the United States and of the several States.

for detailed clarification and Original Intent of this section.
.
Section Five
The Patriot Act of 2001 is hereby repealed and annulled.
Congress, and the Supreme Court and all inferior Courts,
shall have power to waive and expunge without prejudice
all penalties or abridgments of individual rights arising
from the Patriot Act or any other emergency provision
which is reasonably averred to have been inflicted
harmfully or maliciously or under any frivolous or
insufficiently founded pretense,
and in violation of this Constitution.

Congress shall have power to grant emergency disaster
relief to US citizens, or to foreign nationals lawfully in
the United States, accordingly.

The legislatures of all States and Territories shall
also have the same powers as Congress to grant
disaster relief in State matters; but these powers
shall not preclude the same powers of Congress.
.
Section Six
Congress shall have power to investigate courts
inferior to the Supreme Court of the United States,
as well as their ancillary agencies and contractors, in
any and all cases of conduct reasonably averred to be
harmfully in violation of the Constitution of the United States.
In all such investigations, Congress shall have power to
nullify any actions of any Court or agency or contractor
which is determined by any committee of Congress to
have violated the Constitution of the United States, or
to be reasonably anticipated to commit any infringement
which is harmful and contrary to the Constitution.

Congress shall also have power to censure any judge
or prosecutor in the United States, or to enact any
penalty short of or including impeachment, accordingly.
The legislatures of all States and Territories
shall have concomitant powers within their
respective jurisdictions.
.
Section Seven
No agency of the United States under the authority
of the President or Congress shall be authorized to conduct
surveillance of any kind, which shall be in violation
of this Constitution, upon lawful citizens of the
United States. Neither shall surveillance be conducted
within the jurisdiction of the United States which
is in violation of the laws of any State or Territory
of the United States. All information collected in
violation of the Constitution and laws of the United
States, or upon false pretenses, is hereby required
to be expunged and relegated to hearsay status;
and any penalties inflicted upon citizens of the
United States as individuals or as a class of citizens
shall be waived, lifted and expunged; whether these
penalties are under color of law or inflicted in
any other way.

No blanket or unwarranted surveillance on
any lawful inhabitant of the United States or any
lawful inhabitant of any place under any type of
jurisdiction of the United States shall be lawful:
with the exception of enforcement of vehicular
traffic safety laws; and protection of minors from
actual clear and present danger; and prevention
of actual espionage or war against the United States
or citizens thereof by citizens of other nations,
or by citizens of the United States with substantial,
factual, and clearly endangering connections to a
foreign power, or to an organization declaring or
waging war upon the United States, or by
the governments of other nations or their agents.
.

No private corporation under the
jurisdiction of the United States shall be lawfully
empowered in any way to violate the rights of any
citizen of the United States, or any lawful inhabitant
of the United States, in violation of this Constitution
No private corporation shall be legislatively enabled
to be granted immunity from prosecution or civil
legal action; nor shall any law be enacted
within the United States, or enforced in any way
which punishes any individual for any lawful activity
in the context of reporting suspected abuses or
crimes, or for innocent passage, or for harmless
recording of information for educational or
legislative use. Neither shall any private corporation
or Government entity violate the exclusive use
rights of authors or inventors to their own material.

The President may not order the detainment or
imprisonment of enemy combatants as such
without a formal Declaration of War by Congress
directly relating thereto. The President shall have
sixty days from the ratification of this Amendment
to either obtain a Declaration of War from Congress
with respect to persons who are existing detainees;
or to order full civilian and military compliance with this
Amendment, and to make alternative and more hospitable
arrangements for all persons affected by this provision,
in accordance with treaties to which the United States
has ratified according to this Constitution.
