  • Judge tosses flag desecration charge; was pipeline protest[Iowa]

    AP ^ | 15 Aug 2018 | David Pitt
    A flag desecration charge was dropped Monday for a man who protested a crude oil pipeline that crosses his property by hanging an American flag upside down at his home, online court records show. Homer Martz, 63, was charged Friday under a state law that makes it illegal to defile, cast contempt upon, satirize or deride a flag. That law, however, was declared unconstitutional by a federal judge in December 2014 and state prosecutors were told not to enforce it. The law, which lawmakers have not removed from the books, says law enforcement officers have a duty "to enforce the...

    SANTA CLARA — Colin Kaepernick didn’t do much to warrant headlines with his performance on the field Friday, but he’s certainly in for his fair share of scrutiny after he sat through the national anthem before his preseason debut against the Packers. Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com was first to report Kaepernick didn’t stand for the national anthem and got the 49ers to issue a statement on the matter. The statement from the 49ers to PFT: “The national anthem is and always will be a special part of the pre-game ceremony. It is an opportunity to honor our country and reflect...

    There was a distinct look of fear on Hillary Clinton’s face as animal rights protesters held up a large banner and yelled near her rally stage in Las Vegas today while the candidate spoke. Secret Service agents sprang into action, with one putting his arm around Clinton. “You’re okay,” he could be heard saying on the hot mic. “Keep talking,” he said as she stood in silence. “We’ll handle it. We’re not going anywhere,” he said. “Keep talking.” “Okay, we’ll keep talking,” Clinton told the audience. She then said the protesters were actually there to focus on Donald Trump. “Apparently...

Ohio’s branch of the American Civil Liberties Union brought the suit last week against the city of Cleveland, arguing that restrictions on protesters within the “event zone” around Quicken Loans Arena are unconstitutional. Those restrictions would ban certain items, including large backpacks, tape and string, and limit where within the 3.5 square mile zone demonstrators can speak and hold a parade.

It has been applied to annihilating the justice that it was supposed to maintain; to limiting and destroying rights which its real purpose was to respect." Bastiat continues, "The law has placed the collective force at the disposal of the unscrupulous who wish, without risk, to exploit the...

Fights nearly broke out, doxing and vandalism threats were issued to Trump supporters, Latino students were shoving the Trump students out of the way, another student encourages others to join anti capitalist groups, they shut down and silenced the pro Trump group, mocking their talking points, whined about TRUMP chalk on the sidewalk, and it ends with the socialist students gloating about shutting it down and promising to come back if Students For Trump holds another...
