Protect Our Privacy & Pass HB 2046

Help Stop the Suspicionless and Warrantless Mass Surveillance of Cellular Phones and Internet in PA! House Bill 2046 will protect our privacy rights by banning the suspicionless and warrantless use of stingrays, dirtboxes, and other methods of mass surveillance of cellular phone and internet use. HB 2046 was introduced on May 9th, 2016, by a bipartisan coalition of four state Representatives. HB 2046 would help block the use of cell site simulators, which are known as a “stingray,” or a "dirtbox." These devices essentially spoof cell phone towers, tricking any device within range into connecting to the stingray instead of the tower, allowing law enforcement to sweep up communications content, as well as locate and track the person in possession of a specific phone or other electronic device. HB 2046 would require the government to obtain a warrant before using a cell cite simulator, with only a few exceptions. The warrantless stingray use would still be allowed if the owner of a device reports it stolen, with the consent of the user, or with the consent of the legal guardian or next of kin of the user if the user is believed to be deceased or reported missing and unable to be contacted. The legislation requires police to carefully protect any information incidentally gathered on individuals other than those named in the warrant. Police must “Permanently delete any information or metadata collected from any person or communications device not specified in the applicable warrant immediately following such collection and shall not transmit, use or retain such information or metadata for any purpose whatsoever.” We are petitioning the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, starting with the House Judiciary Committee, to urge them to pass the bill out of committee and to bring it up for a vote before the full House of Representatives and vote for it.

Freedom From Current Tyrannical Government ; Exercising U.S. Citizens Right To Revolution

The current state of affairs in the United States is a somber one, our citizens are being targeted, our rights are being dismantled, and our children's futures are suffering, all in the name of power, greed, and the unwarranted control over our natural freedoms. We are constantly being manipulated by politics, the media, and corporate greed. Our best interests are being infringed upon by these manipulations. Our country becomes less free daily, we are monitored, herded into capitol building situations like sheep, we are homeless, sick, and hungry. There is plenty to go around but yet this shameful fact remains. It is clear that if the US citizens best interests were indeed first and foremost, we would not be writing this petition, nor would there be a need to write it. We are lied to by our government officials on a consistent basis to sway our allegiance to their cause. We are outraged, and we have had enough of this tyrannical rule. We are the home of the brave, and we will again with your help be the land of the free. We are calling for government reform, by our decisions, not decisions of lobbyists, and wealthy corporations that are only motivated by their bottom line profits. We will not accept being poisoned for profit, or population control of our citizens. We will not bury our loved ones in the name of political agendas. We will not accept the non-transparent explanations by government officials in the name of national security. We will not allow the dismantling of our rights, our freedoms, and our livelihoods. We will exercise our right of revolution to overthrow this tyrannical government if the needs and wants of the citizens of the United States are not furnished with transparency, compassion, and the greater good of all Americans.
