The 2022 NDAA has some very scary language being placed in it. Currently Rep. Adam Schiff wants to make oversight and accountability at the government level hidden under the guise of ‘National Defense’. Don’t be fooled that this is just a democrat position, it’s happening on both sides of the aisle.
However you should not take my word for it, read it for yourself.
Here is what Schiff proposed. This is the body of the amendment that he wrote in. Now it should also be said that this is not the only amendment to the NDAA, those will be covered in next week’s episode.
“CHAPTER 89–COUNTERING EXTREMISM
“1801. Office of Countering Extremism.
“1802. Training and education.
“1803. Data collection and analysis.
“1804. Reporting requirements.
