Suozzi Suggests Using the ‘Second Amendment’ on Trump
Post Date: 2018-03-19 18:55:45 by hondo68
Democratic rep’s campaign forwarded a quote from Thomas Jefferson to ‘take arms’ against rulersRep. Tom Suozzi, D-N.Y., suggested people could take up arms against President Donald Trump. (Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call file photo) Democratic Rep. Tom Suozzi suggested at a town hall that President Donald Trump’s opponents could take up arms against the president.The New York Democrat was speaking at an event in Huntington, New York, last week and said it was important to put pressure on the president, in a video obtained by the New York Post.“This is where the Second Amendment comes in, quite frankly,” Suozzi said. “Because you know, what if the ...

President Trump and the Freedom of Speech
Post Date: 2018-03-15 09:15:24 by Deckard
When James Madison drafted the First Amendment — “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech” — he made sure to use the article “the” in front of the word “freedom.” What seemed normal to him and superfluous to moderns was actually a profound signal that has resonated for 227 years. The signal was that because the freedom of speech existed before the government that was formed to protect it came into existence, it does not have its origins in government. The freedom of speech has its origins in our humanity. It is a natural right. It exists in the absence of government. By the exercise of normal human reasoning, all rational ...

Trump pushing gun reform proposals that include age limit increase on purchases
Post Date: 2018-03-12 18:27:48 by hondo68
White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah speaks during the daily press briefing at the White House on Feb. 22, 2018. (Evan Vucci/AP) President Trump's plan to combat school shootings will include a push to put armed staff in schools and raise the minimum age to buy certain guns — but appears to fall short of including universal background checks for gun buyers. “There’s going to be a series of proposals,” deputy White House press secretary Raj Shah said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” The plan will include policies Trump has pushed for since the school shooting that killed 17 people in Parkland, Fla., including arming teachers and raising the age ...

misterwhite outs himself again, claims States can infringe...

misterwhite: ---- Keep in mind, the entire Bill of Rights was written to impose limits only on the federal government. The second amendment was written to protect State Militias from federal infringement by protecting the rights of Militia members (the people) to keep and bear the arms of a Militia. But who were "the people" referenced in the second amendment? Not everyone. At the time the second amendment was written, "the people" didn't include women, slaves, blacks, non-citizens, children, or those who didn't own land. "The people" were those with something to lose -- white, adult, male landowners. That's also a description of a Militia ...

Supreme Court curbs rights of immigrants awaiting deportation
Post Date: 2018-02-28 11:03:47 by Tooconservative
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday curbed the ability of immigrants held in long-term detention during deportation proceedings to argue for their release in a ruling in sync with President Donald Trump’s get-tough approach toward immigration. The court’s conservative justices carried the day in the 5-3 decision that overturned a lower court’s ruling that required that immigrants held by the U.S. government awaiting the outcome of deportation proceedings get a bond hearing after six months of detention to seek their release. The ruling could lead to indefinite detentions of certain classes of immigrants, including some with legal status who the ...

Idaho Passes Strongest Anti-NDAA Bill in America Out of Committee
Post Date: 2018-02-26 21:00:34 by hondo68
Thanks to the work of the Panda Idaho, an Idaho house committee passed the Restoring Constitutional Governance Act, H473, by a vote of 11-2 on February 20, 2018. This legislation, drafted by the Patriot Coalition, is the strongest in the nation as it explicitly prohibits the laws of war from being used on non-soldiers in Idaho, and Idaho citizens anywhere, and will punish any person, including Federal or international agents, who attempts to utilize those powers. A Quick Refresher On The NDAA Introduced by State Rep. Bryan Zollinger, H473 would ban the state of Idaho from enforcing sections 1021 and 1022 of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act. These sections purport to give ...

Assault Weapons Not Protected by Second Amendment, Federal Appeals Court Rules
Post Date: 2018-02-26 10:21:11 by Deckard
ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Maryland's ban on 45 kinds of assault weapons and its 10-round limit on gun magazines were upheld Tuesday by a federal appeals court in a decision that met with a strongly worded dissent. In a 10-4 ruling, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, said the guns banned under Maryland's law aren't protected by the Second Amendment. "Put simply, we have no power to extend Second Amendment protections to weapons of war," Judge Robert King wrote for the court, adding that the Supreme Court's decision in District of Columbia v. Heller explicitly excluded such coverage. advertisement Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh, who ...

Appeals Court: Handcuffing A Compliant Ten-Year-Old Is Unreasonable But Deputy Had No Way Of Knowing That
Post Date: 2018-02-19 07:28:54 by Deckard
from the those-without-common-sense-will-inherit-the-earth dept Time and time again, courts remind officers of the law don't actually have to know the law to enforce the law. Yes, that's how it all works out for citizens, who are just as frequently reminded ignorance of the law is no excuse. This has lead to the prevalence of pretextual stops where minor traffic violations (that may not even be violations) are used to initiate long conversations with law enforcement officers with the end goal of obtaining consent for a search or to bring a drug dog onto the scene. Qualified immunity, along with the good faith exception, have allowed an untold amount of law enforcement abuse. This ...

E-Verify Threatens Us All
Post Date: 2018-02-13 06:27:12 by Deckard
In addition to funding for a border wall and other border security measures, immigration hardliners are sure to push to include mandatory E-Verify in any immigration legislation considered by Congress. E-Verify is a (currently) voluntary program where businesses check job applicants’ Social Security numbers and other Information — potentially including “biometric” identifiers like fingerprints — against information stored in a federal database to determine if the job applicants are legally in the United States. Imagine how much time would be diverted from serving consumers and growing the economy if every US business had to comply with E-Verify. Also, collecting the ...

Giving Middle Finger to Police Is a First Amendment Right

Giving Middle Finger to Police Is a First Amendment Right, Man Argues in Lawsuit Over Ticket He says flipping the bird means being free.An Indiana man argues in a federal lawsuit filed last week that he had a First Amendment right to give the middle finger to a state trooper, and that his free speech was violated when the gesture earned him a ticket.The defendant, Mark May, is seeking unspecified damages from Indiana State Police Master Trooper Matt Ames. According to a complaint filed Thursday, Ames “aggressively cut in front” May at a state road intersection in Terre Haute in August 2017.

Cops stop woman praying at home, case goes to Supremes

Equality, Justice, and Freedom: A Constitutional Perspective
Post Date: 2018-01-28 20:13:17 by buckeroo
Implementing policies like those proposed by Thomas Piketty would undermine the government’s legitimacy, which depends on the limits to its powers. The publication of Thomas Piketty’s best-selling book Capital in the Twenty-First Century (2014) has raised awareness of the rising inequality of income and wealth. The author argues that such inequality threatens democratic values and should be reversed by imposing steeply progressive income and wealth taxes on the rich and near-rich. His policies, if implemented, would create more equal outcomes but undermine the principles of freedom and justice that are the essence of the U.S. Constitution. The notion of equality is central to ...

THE ETHICAL TROUBLE WITH LEGISLATING MORALITY by David Trillo, “You can’t legislate morality!” Few colloquial expressions depend more upon connotation than does this short, forceful proclamation of liberty. And because it asserts liberty, few colloquialisms have weathered such a long, sustained, unrelenting campaign to discredit it, refute it and extinguish it from American parlance. Most everyone knows what the expression means. It means that we don’t, or shouldn’t, legislate moral beliefs based solely in tradition or religious beliefs. Unfortunately, people and groups who wish to do exactly that have been attacking this axiom of freedom ever since. Here I ...

The Heart of the Constitution
Post Date: 2018-01-21 03:22:01 by tpaine
The Heart of the Constitution,” by Gerard Magliocca (Oxford University Press) Every week, Americans are confronted with a growing sense of political and economic crisis, from the inequalities of the new economy to renewed debates about racial and gender discrimination to fresh stresses on our political institutions. During periods of crisis, the Constitution can provide a backstop, spelling out foundational rules and rights that offer a bulwark against the vicissitudes of politics. But the meaning of the Constitution can change precisely during these moments of pressure and flux. In his timely new book, “The Heart of the Constitution,” Gerard N. Magliocca highlights how a ...

Why you should care about the warrantless surveillance bill on its way to Trump’s desk
Post Date: 2018-01-18 17:03:02 by hondo68
After debate ended in a close cloture vote on Tuesday, the Senate has voted to pass a bill that will renew one of the NSA’s most controversial practices for another six years. The bill, known as the FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act of 2017 or S.139, provides for an extension of the U.S. government’s practice of collecting the private communications of American citizens when they are to communicating with a foreign target. The six year renewal passed in a 65-34 vote. Over the course of its long path toward renewal, the bill faced vocal opposition from privacy advocates. Many argue that Section 702 violates the Fourth Amendment’s provision forbidding unreasonable searches ...

Police Tell Student Activists Their “Free Speech” is Scaring Other Students
Post Date: 2018-01-15 08:23:10 by Deckard
By Jack Burns In yet another test of the U.S. Constitution’s protected freedom of speech, the Constitution Club at Southern Illinois University (SIU) inflated a giant beach ball and asked students to come by, grab a sharpie, and write whatever they felt like writing on the ball. The students’ free speech rights exercise was quickly interrupted by campus police who informed the club members they had received complaints about the ball and the group would need to stop their activities. According to Campus Reform, the reason SIU chose to attempt to stop the demonstration was that campus police said the students did not go through the proper channels to be able to hold the ...

Federalists Can’t Support a Cannabis Crackdown

That includes the president, who said marijuana legalization "should be up to the states." Before last Thursday, state-licensed marijuana merchants operated in a highly uncertain legal environment, subject to the whims of federal prosecutors who could at any moment decide to shut them down, take their property, and send them to prison. Now that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has clarified the Justice Department's policy regarding the cannabis industry, state-licensed marijuana merchants operate in a highly uncertain legal environment, subject to the whims of federal prosecutors who could at any moment decide to shut them down, take their property, and send them to prison. ...

Congress Plotting to Cut a Hole in the 4th Amendment, Again
Post Date: 2018-01-11 07:32:34 by Deckard
Hidden beneath the controversy stirred up last week by the publication of a book called “Fire and Fury,” a highly critical insider’s view of the Trump White House that the president has not only denounced on national television but also tried to prevent from being published and distributed, are the efforts of the Trump administration and congressional leadership to bypass the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution. Here is the back story. After the excesses of the Watergate era, during which the Nixon administration used the FBI and the CIA unlawfully to spy without warrants on the president’s real and imagined domestic political opponents, Congress passed the Foreign ...

Amash, Paul, and Others Trying to Stop Congress from Expanding Domestic Surveillance Powers (FISA Reauthorization)
Post Date: 2018-01-10 18:14:39 by hondo68
House to vote on a bill that would codify unwarranted searches of Americans' communications. Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call/Newscom Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) and a bipartisan group of 42 lawmakers are going to try to stop Congress from expanding the feds' ability to snoop on American citizens. If they fail, Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is threatening a filibuster in the Senate. This week the House is considering legislation to renew Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Amendments. This law grants intelligence agencies the authority to snoop on foreign targets on foreign soil without warrants, overseen by a secretive FISA court. This is done in the name of stopping ...

Why Ruby Ridge Still Matters
Post Date: 2018-01-10 06:21:46 by Deckard
In the wake of violent clashes between protesters last August in Charlottesville, many people demanded a federal crackdown on suspected dangerous extremists. The federal government has previously carried out similar heavy-handed suppression efforts with disastrous results. Rather than intellectually purifying the nation, such efforts are far more likely to turn nitwits into martyrs. During the 1960s and early 1970s, Washington’s efforts to stomp out bad ideas spawned federal crime waves. The FBI’s COINTELPRO program utterly exempted itself from the Constitution and federal, state, and local laws. The FBI set up its own 250-member Klan organization “to attract membership away ...

Just Say No to Jeff Sessions
Post Date: 2018-01-09 08:39:20 by Deckard
Attorney General Jeff Sessions kicked off the New Year by reversing the Obama-era guidance for federal prosecutors to limit their enforcement of federal marijuana laws in states that have legalized marijuana for medical or recreational use. In what is almost certainly not a coincidence, Sessions’ announcement came days after California’s law legalizing recreational marijuana sales went into effect. Sessions’ action thus runs counter to the wishes of the majority of the people in the most populous US state, as well the people of the 28 other states (and DC) that have legalized some form of marijuana use. Federal laws criminalizing marijuana and other drugs have failed to ...

It Did What it Was Written to Do

A great many people – especially conservatives – reverence the Constitution, consider that it has been abused and that if only the doctrines expressed within were revived and respected, all would be well with America again. This, of course, is a kind of children’s bedtime story – and approximates reality to about the same degree as the story of the Three Little Pigs. The Constitution was peddled and imposed on us by men like Alexander Hamilton, a grasper after power who very openly loathed the ideas expressed by men like Jefferson in his Declaration (and even more so in his Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions). Hamilton and his faction – they were called ...
