  • Underclothes That Display The 4th Amendment When X-Rayed by TSA

    Laughing Squid ^ | 29NOV10 | Scott Beale
    4th Amendment Wear is a series of underclothes that have the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution printed on them with metallic ink that so that it will show up when worn through a TSA X-Ray machine. The clothes are designed as a silent protest against the new reality of being searched to the point where we’re basically naked. We don’t intend for this to be anything more than a thought-provoking way to fuel the debate about safety vs. civil liberties. If we sell a few items, great. But the main intention is to open more dialogue. It’s more...

    Dallas Morning News ^ | 01/05/2017 | Jamie Lovegrove, Washington Correspondent
    WASHINGTON — Sen. Ted Cruz is stepping up his efforts to impose term limits on Congress, calling for a constitutional amendment on the issue. The amendment, proposed Tuesday with Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis of Florida, would limit senators to two six-year terms and House members to three two-year terms. “D.C. is broken,” Cruz said in a written statement. “The American people resoundingly agreed on Election Day, and President-elect Donald Trump has committed to putting government back to work for the American people. It is well past time to put an end to the cronyism and deceit that has transformed Washington...

    Hate the Electoral College? Act now to amend the United States Constitution. Instructions are simple. Article V of the Constitution explains, in only 143 words, how to change the parts of the document that brings you to so much pain. Here it is, in full: Article V The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part...

    Megyn Kelly: Trump and First Amendment 'not a beautiful match' © Getty Fox News host Megyn Kelly criticized Donald Trump’s use of Twitter and warned of the potential "de-legitimization” of the media under the president-elect in a Wednesday interview with NPR’s "Fresh Air." Kelly, who was the target of many social media attacks during the campaign, said Trump might not be aware “that every tweet he unleashes against you ... creates such a crescendo of anger and, in my case again, threatening behavior.” The reporter cited "thousands of tweets" directed at her as an example — threats to "beat the...

    Changes in bail system beneficial By Jeff Clayton / Executive Director, American Bail Coalition Sunday, December 4th, 2016 at 12:02am There has been a lot information – and misinformation – written about New Mexico’s new constitutional amendment on bail. Therefore, it is important to understand just what happened and what the amendment will actually mean for the state. As a person on the front line of this issue, I wanted to share my thoughts on the ramifications of this amendment. First, the idea that bail bondsmen or monetary conditions of bail is somehow going away is not the case. Of...

    Second Amendment Rights Donald J. Trump on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period. The Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that belongs to all law-abiding Americans. The Constitution doesn’t create that right – it ensures that the government can’t take it away. Our Founding Fathers knew, and our Supreme Court has upheld, that the Second Amendment’s purpose is to guarantee our right to defend ourselves and our families. This is about self-defense, plain and simple....

    Constitutional Societ ^ | 2015 | Constitutional Society
    The Battle of Athens TN, August 1-2, 1946 On 1-2 August 1946, some Americans, brutalized by their county government, used armed force to overturn it. These Americans wanted honest, open elections. For years they had asked for state or Federal election monitors to prevent vote fraud -- forged ballots, secret ballot counts, and intimidation by armed sheriff's deputies -- by the local political boss. They got no help. These Americans' absolute refusal to knuckle-under had been hardened by service in World War II. Having fought to free other countries from murderous regimes, they rejected vicious abuse by their county government....

    lead this series of commentaries on the nine initiatives to be decided. It’s A Terrible Idea Last year, when Amendment 69 was validated for the ballot, I heard anecdotal stories about how the proponents gathered signatures by asking people if they wanted to opt-out of Obamacare. Because Obamacare is loathed by all except progressive partisans, that seemed like an attractive alternative. Sadly, this was a misdirection because while Amendment 69 would be made possible through an Affordable Care Act waiver, it is opting out of a bad system in favor of a worse system. If passed, Amendment 69 would be...

    Hillary Clinton on Wednesday tried to reassure skeptical gun owners that she’s not interested in rolling back Second Amendment rights or hatching a scheme to take Americans’ firearms. Speaking just outside Denver, Colorado, Mrs. Clinton again said she’ll make gun control legislation a top priority of her administration, vowing to fight the “gun lobby” and enact stricter rules, such as expanded background checks. But in fighting for votes across rural America, where gun rights remain a key issue, the former first lady also must tread carefully. The National Rifle Association already has endorsed her opponent, Republican Donald Trump, and many...

    Today President Obama signed the PROMESA (Puerto Rico Bailout) bill created by representative Paul Ryan, and with it the immediate suspension of the Fifth Amendment which was supported by a Senate vote yesterday. The Fifth Amendment protects U.S. Citizens from federal seizure of property without compensation. It applies in this instance to Puerto Rico via the general obligation bonds (property) purchased by municipal bond holders (investing citizens), which were supposed to be repaid, and which congress has now determined can be frozen. In addition, PROMESA suspends legal redress, by blocking bond holders (property owners) from suing the debtor (PR) to...

    After Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas failed Wednesday in a bid to restrict President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, the White House decided to give the lawmaker a kick in the pants for good measure. Referring to Mr. Cotton’s amendment to stop the U.S. from purchasing heavy water used by Iran in nuclear production, White House press secretary said, “Senator Cotton is certainly no expert when it comes to heavy water. I’m confident that he couldn’t differentiate heavy water from sparkling water.” He said Mr. Cotton is focused “on undermining the effective implementation of this agreement that prevents Iran...

    Friends, while I'm not going to discuss the particulars of my sister's divorce or what I was told about how she was cheated on, battered, and abused during her marriage. My concern is for her safety these days. This is because her soon-to-be-former-husband has made a number of threats against her life. And friends, these are not "alleged" threats simply because I've seen them and verified them to be real.  Fearing for her safety and security even more so in recent months, my sister has gone to the El Dorado County Court to request and obtain a Restraining Order...
  • House resolution calling for Article V Convention approved by Senate

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — After some debate Saturday afternoon, the Senate joined the House in approving a resolution that would put West Virginia on the list of states supporting an Article V Convention for consideration of a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Though shorter than the House’s debate, similar arguments were made before a 17-16, party-line vote in favor of the measure. The Senate originally proposed it’s own Article V Convention resolution, S.C.R. 10, that also included limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government and limiting the terms of office for its officials and for members of...

    On Friday, the Alabama Supreme Court rejected the US Supreme Court's marriage opinion and basically told them to take a hike in favor of following the Alabama Constitution and Alabama law. On March 4, 2016, the Alabama Supreme Court ordered that all probate judges cease and desist in issuing marriage licenses to sodomies. The court issued its 170-page ruling in favor of Petition for Mandamus by Liberty Counsel. Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel said, "The ruling last year by the Alabama Supreme Court was historic, and is one of the most researched and well-reasoned opinions on marriage...

    1/31 - Once again U.S. Senator John McCain [R-AZ] has his crosshairs set on the Jones Act with an amendment he intends to attach to a proposed energy bill that would eliminate the U.S. build requirement for tankers involved in U.S. coastwise trade. McCain hopes to attach the amendment to bill S. 2012, also known as the Energy Modernization Act of 2015, which seeks to provide for the modernization of the energy policy of the United States, and for other purposes. The submitted amendment from McCain would change section 12112 of title 46 of the United States Code (46 U.S.C....
