    The American Civil Liberties Union does not want school police to be armed. In an opinion piece published by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, ACLU of Pennsylvania senior policy advocate Harold Jordan calls for the disarming of school police. The article has been posted on the ACLU’s website and also tweeted out by the organization. School police are currently not armed in Pittsburgh, and Jordan and the ACLU are just fine with that. “Having officers patrol the hallways with firearms sends a negative message to students,” Jordan writes. “It makes many students feel that they are being treated like suspects. It...

    Wonder no more. Fresh off an attack on Jeff Sessions, the ACLU disclosed its plans to fight Donald Trump. The plan sounds so baldly partisan it could have been written by Debbie Wasserman Schultz: CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- The American Civil Liberties Union staged a nationwide training event Saturday to make sure people are aware of their rights as protesters and urge organized, public resistance by those opposed to policies of President Donald Trump. Organizers said the event at a sports arena on the University of Miami campus was livestreamed to locations in all 50 states. ACLU Executive Director...

    Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, who in 2015 spent six days in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples due to her religious beliefs, will not have to pay $231,000 in court fees, a federal judge has ruled. U. S. Magistrate Judge Edward Atkins denied the plaintiffs' demand in Miller v. Davis that Davis pay the ACLU $231,000 because the plaintiffs didn't win their case against Davis, Liberty Counsel reported. Their were three cases against Davis, all of which were dismissed as moot on April 19, 2016, after the Kentucky legislature passed a law providing Davis, and...

    The ACLU ^ | February 24, 2017 | Faiz Shakir, National Political Director
    In the weeks following President Donald Trump’s inauguration, we have seen the harms that his policies cause people around the world and the danger his actions represent for our civil liberties. Trump’s use of executive power has prompted the protest and defiance of millions, echoing the voices of many who know that our basic American values are being tested by our president. The ACLU will continue to defend our basic freedoms and hold this administration accountable for every unlawful or unconstitutional measure they propose. We will use the courts as one avenue to aggressively advance our agenda, but we cannot...
  • Arkansas Rushes to Execute 8 Men in the Space of 10 Days

    New York Times ^ | 3/3/2017 | Matthew Haag and Richard Fausset
    The state of Arkansas plans to put to death eight inmates over a span of 10 days next month, a pace of executions unequaled in recent American history and brought about by a looming expiration date for a drug used by the state for lethal injections. The eight men facing execution — four black and four white — are among 34 death row inmates in Arkansas, where capital punishment has been suspended since 2005 over legal challenges and difficulty in acquiring the drugs for lethal injections. All eight men were convicted of murders that occurred between 1989 and 1999, and...

    Celebrities showed their support for the American Civil Liberties Union during Sunday night's Academy Awards by sporting blue ribbons on their expensive designer wears. The blue ribbons are a part of an initiative called "Stand with ACLU," the New York Times reports. The ACLU reported a spike in donations after President Trump signed an executive order temporarily halting refugees and citizens from seven countries that are predominately Muslim from entering the United States over terrorism concerns. Ruth Negga, who was nominated for best actress, Lin-Manuel Miranda, who was nominated for best original song, and Barry Jenkins, who was nominated for...

    Savage, who met with Trump last week for about an hour at the president’s club Mar-a-Lago in South Florida, on Friday told the listeners of his nationally syndicated show, “The Savage Nation,” he wants to see an investigative committee focus on groups that may be engaged in “espionage, treason, sedition or sabotage.” He named the ACLU, Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Southern Poverty Law Center as among the organizations that should be probed, calling billionaire activist George Soros the “head of the snake” that is funding many of the most subversive groups.

    (Watch video at link) Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a noted critic of President Trump, suggested that she doesn't believe the country is in good hands but said she is hopeful about the future. “We're not experiencing the best of times,” Ginsburg said Thursday on BBC's “Newsnight,” though she did not comment directly about the president. But, the 83-year-old jurist said the public's resistance to the new administration — on full display at last month's Women's March protests — has given her “reason to hope that we will see a better day.” “A great man once said that the...

    There is only one thing more appalling than the Washington Supreme Court’s 9-0 ruling against religious liberty on Friday. It is the silence of Christian leaders across America, leaders who choose convenience over confrontation, leaders who would rather be popular than prophetic, leaders who prefer the favor of people over the favor of God. Shame on these silent leaders. Today is a day to stand. There are, of course, the handful of expected Christian voices protesting the court’s outrageous decision, as these justices ruled unanimously against florist Barronelle Stutzman, claiming that she discriminated against a longtime gay customer (named Robert...

    The Daily Signal ^ | February 15, 2017 | Walter E. Williams
    Ordinary black people cannot afford to go along with the liberal agenda that calls for undermining police authority. That agenda makes for more black crime victims.Let’s look at what works and what doesn’t work.In 1990, New York City adopted the practice in which its police officers might stop and question a pedestrian. If there was suspicion, they would frisk the person for weapons and other contraband. This practice, well within the law, is known as a “Terry stop.”After two decades of this proactive police program, New York City’s homicides fell from over 2,200 per year to about 300. Blacks were...

    The Aging Rebel ^ | 2/13/2017
    The various criminal and civil cases associated with the Waco Twin Peaks bloodbath 639 days ago remain fossilized and nobody – certainly not the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas – gives a damn. It has been a year, eight months and 28 days since the illegal, mass arrests. The ACLU’s stated mission is “to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.” But the disillusioning truth is that the ACLU is just another meetup group for sanctimonious law school grads. And, for the...

    The nearly century-old American Civil Liberties Union says it is suddenly awash in donations and new members as it does battle with President Donald Trump over the extent of his constitutional authority, with nearly $80 million in online contributions alone pouring in since the election. That includes a record $24 million surge over two days after Trump banned people from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States. The organization said its membership has more than doubled since the election to a record of nearly 1.2 million, and its Twitter following has tripled. “It feels like we’re drinking from...

    A federal appeals court Monday upheld the conviction of Mohamed Osman Mohamud for attempting to detonate a bomb during downtown Portland's holiday tree-lighting ceremony, rejecting his argument that federal authorities had entrapped him. While the three-member panel of judges in the 9Th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found the government's conduct was "quite aggressive at times,'' they concluded it fell short of a due process violation, according to the 50-page ruling. "The complete lack of reluctance on Mohamud's part to participate in the bombing - indeed his immediate zeal to see it through - separates this case from those in...

A federal judge filed an emergency stay on parts of the executive order at the time as a result....
