Unconstitutional and Tyrannical Red Flag Gun Confiscation Laws Are Coming FAST
Post Date: 2019-08-09 08:44:59 by Deckard
Within minutes of the tragic mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, gun control fanatics were predictably not letting a crisis go to waste by calling for extreme measures of gun control. The usual suspects were at it Soros organizations, MSM, left-wing extremists, and Democratic Party members but, interestingly enough, they were joined by many Republican lawmakers as well. While Lindsey Graham, a Senator who has scarcely seen a right in the Bill of Rights he hasnt wanted to carve up for dinner, is no shocker, others in staunchly red states have also joined the call for stricter gun control measures. Most surprising, however, is that President Donald Trump has jumped on ...

from the twist:-Amazon-will-just-give-it-to-them-if-no-one-cooperates deptThu, Aug 8th 2019 12:16pm Tim Cushing To be part of your local law enforcement's surveillance network, all you need is a little tech from Amazon. Amazon's Ring doorbell/camera is being handed out to cops, who can then give them to citizens with the implication the recipients of this corporate/government largesse will deliver recordings upon request. Every Ring installed is another contributor to this ad hoc network of cameras -- something both cops and Amazon have access to. Amazon is looking to corner two markets at one time, roping in both the public and private sectors with an eye on dominating ...
McConnell Just Moved to Approve a Hell of a Lot of Judges [19 more]
Post Date: 2019-07-26 06:10:51 by Tooconservative
Okay, so conservatives aren't happy with the budget deal. President Trump and the Republicans struck a compromise with Nancy Pelosi on a two-year, $2.7 trillion agreement that passed the House and is likely to pass the Senate next week. It blew up the spending caps Republicans rallied for in 2011. And fiscal conservatives are rightfully pissed.But, conservatives may find solace in the judicial effort Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made today. As he unveiled next week's agenda, McConnell moved to vote on the lifetime appointments of 19 district court judges. Leader McConnell has filed cloture on Executive Calendar #119 Michael T. Liburdi to be U.S. District Judge for the ...

Students' Free Speech Rights in Public Schools
Post Date: 2019-07-06 16:50:24 by humahuma
The freedom to express a particular opinion, whether it be in speech, in writing, or in any other form and whether it be of a religious or non- religious nature, "strikes at the very core of first amendment values." The Supreme Court has emphatically ruled that the Constitution guarantees each student's freedom of speech and expression when using aVPN in public schools. The Court's decisions reflect the principle that students do not "shed their constitutional rights to free speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate." Indeed, school officials "do not possess absolute authority over their students. Students are 'persons' under [the] ...

Post Date: 2019-07-01 11:37:05 by Deckard
Williamston, SC Filming the police is entirely legal in every state. However, all too often, we will see police officers overstep their authority and arrest, attack, and assault innocent people for the constitutionally protected act of documenting their behavior in public. While the norm seems to be cops violating the rights of people for conducting what are now referred to as First Amendment Audits, when cops support a citizens right to film in public, they deserve to be recognized. News Now South Carolina has filmed dozens of these First Amendment audits. Most of them end with police threatening him for filming or removing him from the property. However, in ...
U.S. Supreme Court Rules That Police Can Forcibly & Warrantlessly Carry Out Blood Draws on Unconscious Drivers
Post Date: 2019-06-29 07:33:52 by Deckard
WASHINGTON, DC In a ruling that gives police greater leeway to violate the Fourth Amendment rights of anyone driving on a public road, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that police may forcibly and warrantlessly carry out blood draws on unconscious drivers suspected of drunk driving. The Courts 5-4 decision in Mitchell v. State of Wisconsin found that an unconscious driver suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol constitutes an emergency situation that allows police to ignore the Fourth Amendments warrant requirement and draw blood from that suspect without consent or a warrant, regardless of whether there is an opportunity to obtain a warrant. In an ...

Did you know that when youre stopped for no reason at a drunk driving checkpoint well, stopped for no reason having anything to do with something you did to suggest you might be drunk your refusal to participate in self-incrimination can result in your arrest, loss of your government permission slip to travel as well as the impounding of your car? Your cooperation is not only appreciated it is required. This not-much-discussed aspect of Checkpoint USA is arguably even worse than the existence of Checkpoint USA which came into being in the 80s, when the government decided to re-interpret the limits of its own authority ...

Business Owners Bring Free Speech Lawsuit Against “Mural Police”
Post Date: 2019-05-31 17:19:51 by Deckard
Institute for Justice by Conor Beck Last fall, August Augie Kersten, co-owner of the Lonesome Dove saloon in Mandan, North Dakota, decided to brighten up his building with a mural. Other businesses in town have murals, and Augie thought it would be just the thing to bring color and character to the otherwise drab and industrial area where his business faced the highway. He had no idea that, by doing so, he would be entering into a five-month bureaucratic nightmare where his own city would threaten him with court proceedings up to a thousand dollars in fines. Now, Augie, his business partner Brian Berube, and the Lonesome Dove have joined with the nonprofit law firm ...
“It’s National Security Stuff” Says AGW
Post Date: 2019-05-24 18:10:19 by Deckard
One of the neat things about being a law enforcer is having the power (because youve got the gun) to make up laws and then enforce them. Here we have a guy walking around in a public area, taking video of things which can be viewed from the public area. There is no law prohibiting either nor requiring permission prior to doing either thing. A law enforcer ought not only to be aware of this but to respect the legally protected right of the guy to walk around in public and film things visible from public areas. Instead, the AGW makes up a law national security stuff. You cant be taking pictures of critical ...

Impeach Trump But Only for the Right Reason

Notwithstanding the fact that their Special Counsel Robert Mueller, after a long detailed investigation, found no evidence that President Trump illegally conspired with Russian officials in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, Democrats are still hell bent on impeaching Trump. The problem with their position, however, is that they want to impeach him for invalid reasons, reasons that do not amount to the high crimes and misdemeanors standard set forth in the Constitution. For one thing, while conspiring or colluding to establish normal and friendly relations with Russia is considered a cardinal sin by the U.S. national-security establishment and ...
