Getting Them Used To It . . .
Post Date: 2018-08-07 18:02:58 by Deckard
CNN recently did a story – video below – about armed government workers forcibly detaining people for exercising their Fifth Amendment right to not answer questions. The armed government workers are Border Patrol workers but they’re not anywhere near the border. They are dragnet stopping every car on roads often as far as 100 miles from the border and interrogating drivers as to their citizenship. When a person asserts their Fifth Amendment right to remain silent, they are punished for doing so by being forcibly detained for as long as several hours. As in the case of another despicable practice – civil asset forfeiture – the people haven’t been charged with ...

Ignorant Hysteria Over 3D Printed Guns Leads To Courts Ignoring The First Amendment
Post Date: 2018-08-03 08:58:37 by Deckard
from the can-we-somehow-add-in-a-3rd-amendment-issue-here dept A year and a half ago, we wrote about a troubling ruling by the 5th Circuit siding with the US State Department waving a magic "national security" wand to ignore the First Amendment implications of banning the internet distribution of the CAD files for 3D printing components for guns. As we pointed out over five years ago, the hysteria over these 3D printed gun plans was silly. Attempts to ban them from the internet wouldn't just fail, but would actually draw much more attention to them. However, in the last few days the hysteria has returned... and much of it is misleading and wrong, and while most people ...

President Trump Is No Friend to 3D Printed Plastic Guns, Says WH Press Secretary

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders touts President Trump's support for printed gun bans.White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed on Wednesday that President Trump supports bans against 3D-printed plastic guns. As Reason's Brian Doherty previously reported, Defense Distributed is "a collective that organizes, promotes, and distributes technologies to help home gun-makers." In early July, the Department of Justice (DOJ) reached a settlement with Defense Distributed in a long-running lawsuit based on government officials maintaining that the sharing of the gun-making files violated munitions export rules located in the International Traffic ...

Liberal Ninth Circuit Says Open-Carrying A Gun Is A Constitutional Right
Post Date: 2018-07-25 07:13:00 by Deckard
The Federalist – by Bre Payton The ultra-liberal and frequently overturned U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit just ruled that the Second Amendment protects one’s right to carry a gun openly outside of the home. “We do not take lightly the problem of gun violence,” the majority opinion in Young v. Hawaii reads. Here’s more, emphasis added. For better or for worse, the Second Amendment does protect a right to carry a firearm in public for self-defense. We would thus flout the Constitution if we were to hold that, ‘in regulating the manner of bearing arms, the authority of [the State] has no other limit than its own discretion.’ Reid, ...

Key Concepts of Libertarianism
Post Date: 2018-07-21 20:32:59 by buckeroo
The key concepts of libertarianism have developed over many centuries. The first inklings of them can be found in ancient China, Greece, and Israel; they began to be developed into something resembling modern libertarian philosophy in the work of such seventeenth- and eighteenth-century thinkers as John Locke, David Hume, Adam Smith, Thomas Jefferson, and Thomas Paine. Individualism. Libertarians see the individual as the basic unit of social analysis. Only individuals make choices and are responsible for their actions. Libertarian thought emphasizes the dignity of each individual, which entails both rights and responsibility. The progressive extension of dignity to more people — to ...

What To Learn From The Social Justice Warrior Who Was Eaten By His Own Mob
Post Date: 2018-07-18 09:46:15 by IbJensen
Mob compliance is a vicious and deadly cycle. The only way to stop the cycle is to stop complying with the mob’s demands. “Twilight Zone” creator Rod Serling predicted back in the 1950s that we’d soon have a citizenry unable to think. Many of his screenplays warned of the specter of runaway mob psychology. Today it seems that’s exactly the sort of citizenry we’ve got. Social media trolling drives mindless street theater, which drives more mindless social media trolling, and on and on. Most Americans aren’t taken in by it, but the illusions mob behavior promotes can wreak havoc even on reasonable people. The mob mindset seems to be in hyper-drive. ...

Senate resistance to Judge Kavanaugh is collapsing
Post Date: 2018-07-11 20:19:24 by Tooconservative
The New York Times published a piece today with the bland title “For Midterms, Supreme Court Political Drama Plays to Its Audience.” It turns out that’s a nice way of saying vulnerable Senate Democrats are struggling between telling the base what it wants to hear and reality. Right now, it sounds as if reality is winning: Making his way through the Capitol, Senator Bill Nelson of Florida said “look at my statement” three times in 15 seconds when pressed about the appointment, hoping to let his carefully worded news release carry the day. Such dodges only whetted the appetites of Republicans, who taunted the Democrats for their hesitation and, in some cases, ...

Supreme Court Fallout: Calif. Teachers Sue Unions to Recoup Unconstitutional 'Agency Fees'
Post Date: 2018-07-09 09:38:12 by Tooconservative
Justice is coming for unions that forced non-members to pay "non-political" agency fees that went to prop up Democratic candidates. Last month, the Supreme Court ruled that forcing workers who disagree with a union to make these payments anyway violates the workers' First Amendment rights.Less than a week after that ruling, Janus v. Association of Federal, State, City, and Municipal Employees (FSCME), seven California teachers have filed a class-action lawsuit to recoup unjustly forced fees. "This lawsuit will enable teachers like me to recover the agency fees that we were wrongly forced to pay against our will," Scott Wilford, the plaintiff in the new lawsuit, ...

Inside Donald Trump's Supreme Court Deliberations
Post Date: 2018-07-08 10:09:40 by Tooconservative
. . . At his private club in New Jersey this weekend, Trump has been consulting with aides and advisers, including Vice President Mike Pence, who flew up to work through the pluses and minuses of each candidate. As Trump likes to do, he is also phoning friends and lawmakers to sound them out about potential contenders. As of Saturday evening, advisers say, the president had narrowed his list down to four candidates. Raymond Kethledge was the leading contender, although officials stress that Trump has not yet settled on a choice. Trump has been describing Kethledge to aides as “Gorsuch 2.0,” a reference to his 2017 successful nominee, Neil Gorsuch. Trump sees that nomination as ...

Judge Raymond Kethledge and the Second Amendment [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2018-07-07 09:49:34 by Tooconservative
Judge Raymond Kethledge vigorously defends — and exercises — individual rights under the Second Amendment. On the bench, he has faithfully applied the Supreme Court’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, and ruled that Second Amendment rights deserve at least as much protection as any others. Off the bench, he is an avid hunter and a lecturer on originalism, textualism, and the Second Amendment. Perhaps the most important Second Amendment case to come before the Sixth Circuit in the last few years — so important that the court took it en banc — is Tyler v. Hillsdale County Sheriff’s Department. The case dealt with a federal statute that barred anyone ...

Fifth Circuit Says No, You Fucking May Not Strip Search A Classful Of Female Students To Find $50

The ACLU’s Longstanding Commitment to Defending Speech We Hate
Post Date: 2018-06-29 23:10:27 by Gatlin
The ACLU, the nation’s oldest and largest civil liberties organization, has always had its share of critics. Many condemned us for defending Nazis’ right to march in Skokie in the 1970s. Some, like former Attorney General Ed Meese, labeled us the “criminals’ lobby” for advocating for constitutional rights for those accused of crime. We earned few friends when we represented Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen suspected of terrorist ties and killed in a drone strike by the Obama administration. After we represented a white supremacist denied a permit by the city of Charlottesville, we were criticized for defending white supremacists. Such criticism comes with the ...

The ACLU's Biggest Roadblock to Fighting Mass Surveillance
Post Date: 2018-06-29 15:14:15 by Gatlin
IN MARCH 2015, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a type of National Security Agency bulk monitoring known as "upstream" surveillance. More than three years after the ACLU originally filed the suit, the case is still mired in procedural and bureaucratic limbo. But on Friday, a hearing over one such roadblock in Maryland district court could bring long-awaited progress. The Wikimedia Foundation, which the ACLU is representing along with cocounsel from the Knight First Amendment Institute and Cooley LLP, engages in more than a trillion communications per year with people around the world, and has hundreds of millions of visitors ...

When Privacy Prevails: ACLU Lawyer Dishes on SCOTUS' Carpenter Decision
Post Date: 2018-06-29 14:45:54 by Gatlin
Nathan Wessler, who argued 'Carpenter' before the SCOTUS, said the decision made way for courts to address protections for "highly sensitive" data held by third-party companies. The Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision in Carpenter v. United States marks a significant gain for privacy advocates as well as a monumental shift in how both the Fourth Amendment and the “third-party” doctrine are interpreted. Among those who made the decision possible is Nathan Wessler, the American Civil Liberties Union attorney who argued on behalf of Timothy Carpenter before the court. Legaltech News recently caught up with Wessler to get his thoughts on the case’s significance, ...

Contra Ben Shapiro on Judge Kavanaugh

Contra Ben Shapiro on Judge Kavanaugh By Ed Whelan June 28, 2018 4:53 PM I have no interest in favoring one outstanding Supreme Court candidate over another, so I don’t intend to say much about any of the candidates before a nominee is selected. But I also don’t like to see unfair or mistaken charges made, so I might occasionally weigh in. Such as now. The estimable Ben Shapiro offers what is super-ambitiously titled “The Run-Down: Here’s What You Need To Know About Trump’s Top 5 Possible Nominees.” To my great surprise, he concludes that Judge Brett Kavanaugh “has the most red flags.” As it turns out, though—perhaps because he has taken on ...

Republicans see ticket to midterm election success in Kennedy's retirement
Post Date: 2018-06-28 22:13:39 by Tooconservative
Republicans searching for that elusive issue to erase the Democrats’ critical edge in voter enthusiasm heading into the midterm elections believe they’ve found their golden ticket in the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. Senior Republicans are predicting that the opportunity to replace Kennedy, a swing vote on the narrowly divided high court, with a young conservative who could tilt the court to the right and serve for decades, will galvanize the conservative base and motivate rank-and-file GOP voters to put any uneasiness with President Trump aside and stick with the party in November. “This is every Democrat candidate’s worst nightmare, as it ...

Levin: Here’s what’s REALLY at stake with the next SCOTUS justice
Post Date: 2018-06-28 12:17:14 by Tooconservative
On his radio show Wednesday evening, LevinTV host Mark Levin cut through the legacy media bluster and broke down the actual terms of the real debate over America’s next Supreme Court justice. The segment followed news of the long-anticipated announcement of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement earlier in the day. Levin went on to explain the importance of properly understanding the ideologies at play when discussing who will take Kennedy’s place on the bench. “This is a battle between constitutionalists and statists,” Levin said. What will happen, as always, Levin explained, is that Democratic politicians will demand that the prospective justice agree with ...

Why Janus cuts so deep: Workers must opt-in to pay union fees
Post Date: 2018-06-28 12:11:41 by Tooconservative
Amid the hubbub of Justice Anthony Kennedy's announcement Wednesday, you might have missed just how bitter and sad the cries of union leaders became over the Janus v. AFSCME decision. And one important aspect of the ruling may have been neglected. Janus, of course, barred public sector unions from collecting money from nonconsenting government workers who did not want to union members. But the real gut-punch comes in the last passage of the opinion, pertaining to its implementation. Justice Samuel Alito, in handing down this ruling, could have just quit after establishing that government violates workers' First Amendment rights when it forces them to contribute financially to a ...

The Run-Down: Here's What You Need To Know About Trump's Top 5 Possible Nominees
Post Date: 2018-06-28 08:35:40 by Tooconservative
According to Fred Barnes of The Weekly Standard, the White House has narrowed down its list of potential Supreme Court nominees to a top five: Brett Kavanaugh, 53, of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals; Amul Thapar, 49, of the 6th Circuit; Amy Barrett, 46, of the 7th Circuit; Thomas Hardiman, 52, of the 3rd Circuit; and Raymond Kethledge, 51, of the 6th Circuit. Here’s what we know about them. Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh is a former clerk for Justice Kennedy. He was elevated to the federal bench in 2006, after a three-year delay. His nomination was delayed thanks to Democratic upset over the fact that Kavanaugh worked for Kenneth Starr in the office of the Solicitor General, and had the ...

American Empire Demands a Caesar
Post Date: 2018-06-27 19:38:40 by Deckard
Trump is hardly our first emperor. The warfare state has been trampling the Constitution for a long time.The United States has adorned its president with extravagance that makes Roman emperors appear frugal by comparison. And such visible signs of the deification of our president are complemented by legal doctrines that echo Richard Nixon’s once discredited claim to David Frost: “When the president does it, that means it is not illegal.” These extra-constitutional developments reflect the transformation of the United States from a republic, whose glory was liberty and whose rule of law was king, to an empire, whose glory is global dominion and whose president is law.
