They want us to think they care about security. The very people who attempted to destroy the sitting president with a smear campaign. The same ones who justified ANTIFA and BLM riots and the burning of cities. The same ones who were bent on destroying conservatives at any cost. The ones who believe in autonomous zones and defunding police. The ones who have opened our borders to murderers, rapists, and drug dealers.
They want us to think that they care about our security and that’s why they’ve introduced HR 353—the Security Clearance Improvement Act.
They’re very concerned about ‘misinformation’ and ‘conspiracy theories’. Because, according to this bill, such things lead to domestic terror, like what took place on January 6th.
So, what is HR 353? Could it prohibit conservatives from obtaining security clearance? This act was introduced in January by Rep Stephanie Murphy (D-FL) to keep right-leaning folks from getting federal jobs.
Yep, you read that right.
Security Clearance Improvement Act of 2021: This bill requires the Office of Personnel Management to revise Standard Form 86 (Questionnaire for National Security Positions) to specifically include questions regarding an individual’s (1) affiliation with organizations or movements that spread conspiracy theories and false information about the U.S. government, and (2) participation in the activities that occurred at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, or in similar activities. (congress.gov)
Murphy introduced the bill to the House on January 19th, while the “insurrection” was still fresh on everyone’s minds. From there, the bill was referred to the House Committee on Oversight and Reform.
Here’s the long and short of it: If you don’t think like they think, you won’t receive security clearance.
The purpose of HR 353 is stated as: “To modify the Standard Form 86 questionnaire used for national security eligibility determinations to include questions regarding an individual’s membership in, or association with, organizations spreading conspiracy theories regarding the Government and participation in the activities occurring at the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021, and for other purposes.” (conservativefiringline.com)
Cutting to the quick: if you follow any “theories” or belong to any organizations that do, then you will be prohibited from obtaining federal security clearance. If you were in D.C. on January 6th, you’re out. So, no high-level government job for you.
Here are some of the questions you would be asked:
(1) “Have you ever been a member of, associated with, or knowingly engaged in activities conducted by an organization or movement that spreads conspiracy theories and false information about the United States Government?”.
(2) “Did you participate in the activities occurring at the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021, or in any similar activity?” (conservativefiringline.com)
So, here’s my question: Who determines what’s a conspiracy theory and what isn’t? After all, we’re being told that anyone who believes the election was stolen is a conspiracy theorist. If you joined the “Stop the Steal” Facebook group, you’re bad, bad, bad.
I guess I’m bad? I joined that group because I definitely believed we were looking at the potential for fraud in multiple states. I still believe that.
By their definition, that would make me a conspiracy theorist. So, I wouldn’t get federal clearance? I’m a 62-year-old woman who hasn’t been in D.C. for 15 years. I’m not a Qanon follower. I haven’t burned down any buildings (though, in all fairness, they go a lot easier on folks who do). Am I really considered to be more dangerous than ANTIFA because I happened to support Trump’s election integrity challenges?
Personally, I think HR 353 is a dirty trick. And if the Democrats are good at anything, it’s dirty tricks. The point here is to disqualify any MAGA voters from security clearance. It’s that simple. If you were a Trump supporter, you might as well pack your bags.
There’s only one way to fight a dirty trick—to put on your boxing gloves. We stand strong against false accusations from The Left, especially when they categorize us as something we’re not.
They’re calling our bluff, conservatives. And we can’t let them.
