  • Red Flag Laws: Too Good to Be True

    09/20/2019 10:44:21 AM PDT · by rktman · 34 replies ^ | 9/20/2019 | Rich Logis
    We all know that if something looks too good to be true, it is. Reasonable Americans can agree that no one who shouldn't have a gun should have one. Red flag laws, though, are peaceful slavery disguised as bipartisan utopianism, with even President Trump publicly supporting them. Bipartisanship is often sold as doing what's right, but warm and fuzzy bipartisan agreements don't necessarily mean something good for the American people. Doing what's constitutional is what's right and correct, irrespective of whether it's bipartisan. It's almost the equivalent of legislating based on polls. In my home state of Florida, both our...

    If a tree falls in an isolated forest but no one hears it, does it still make a sound? If the United States, under President Donald J. Trump (R), celebrates American Independence Day, the 4th of July, with a powerful display of pride and patriotism in the nation's capital but the so called major networks refuse to televise it live, did it happen? It's a worthy question because that's what the big networks are planning to do. While scientists and philosophers may dispute the answer to the former question, the answer to the latter is a resounding "yes!" Oh sure,...

    Former President George H.W. Bush, who spent a lifetime in public service and as the nation's leader scored a decisive victory over Saddam Hussein but battled a faltering economy, died Friday at age 94. Family spokesman Jim McGrath said Bush died shortly after 10 p.m. Friday, about eight months after the death of his wife, Barbara Bush. He is survived by five children, including former President George W. Bush and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. A sixth child died in early childhood. The late former president also is survived by 17 grandchildren.
  • (4th Accuser) Senate probing new allegation of misconduct against Kavanaugh

    09/26/2018 4:07:10 PM PDT · by springwater13 · 284 replies
    The Senate Judiciary Committee is inquiring about at least one additional allegation of misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, according to a letter obtained by NBC News and multiple people familiar with the process. Republican Senate investigators asked Kavanaugh about the new complaint, NBC News has learned, during a phone call on Tuesday between Kavanaugh and committee staff. Sources told NBC News that Kavanaugh denied the allegation in the letter during the call and a spokesman for the committee declined to comment. A Republican aide on the committee said the conversation took place shortly after noon. While Republican staff...

    Believe it or not, Lefties, my request is not as outrageous as it may first sound. There is nothing about this holiday for you to like, so I'm really not asking you to give up much. We know that you hate it when Americans appropriate foreign cultures, so in all fairness we have to ask that you not appropriate a culture that is entirely foreign to you! Let's go through the various elements: Grilling: Feminists have declared that grilling is sexist, as seen in this video from the always excellent Mark Dice Meat: Of course, grilling means meat!

  • [Catholic Caucus] The Fourth Sunday of Advent (Gueranger)

    Violet Privileged Sunday of the Second Class (Semidouble) (If this Sunday fall on the 24th of December, it is omitted that year; and in its place is said the Office of Christmas Eve, which is given here) WE HAVE NOW entered into the week which immediately precedes the Birth of the Messias. That long-desired Coming might be even tomorrow; and at furthest, that is, when Advent is as long as it can be, the beautiful feast is only seven days from us. So that the Church now counts the hours; she watches day and night, and since the 17th...
  • 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...

    New York Times ^ | January 8, 2017 | By Robert D. McFadden
    Nat Hentoff, the author, journalist, jazz critic and civil libertarian who called himself a troublemaker and proved it with a shelf of books and a mountain of essays on free speech, wayward politics, elegant riffs and the sweet harmonies of the Constitution, died on Saturday at his home in Manhattan. He was 91. His son, Nick, announced the death on Twitter. Mr. Hentoff wrote for The Village Voice for 50 years, and produced articles for The New Yorker, The Washington Post, Down Beat magazine and dozens of other publications. He wrote more than 35 books — novels, volumes for young...
  • Minnesota Supreme Court finds implied-consent law for drunken drivers constitutional

    Star Tribune ^ | 2-11-15 | David Chanen
    Despite national court decisions limiting police in obtaining a blood-alcohol sample without a warrant, the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that doing so doesn’t violate the state and U.S. Constitutions. As a result, in Minnesota, a suspected drunken driver can still be charged with refusing a breath or blood test if arresting officers believe there’s enough evidence to get a search warrant to require the test — even if they don’t obtain the warrant. Only a few states have a similar implied-consent law. The issue, which reached the state Supreme Court in a case involving William Bernard Jr., has been...

  • Supreme Court Rules 8-1 Citizens Have No Protection Against 4th Amendment Violations by Police

    In a blow to the constitutional rights of citizens, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8-1 in Heien v. State of North Carolina that police officers are permitted to violate American citizens' Fourth Amendment rights if the violation results from a "reasonable" mistake about the law on the part of police. Acting contrary to the venerable principle that "ignorance of the law is no excuse," the Court ruled that evidence obtained by police during a traffic stop that was not legally justified can be used to prosecute the person if police were reasonably mistaken that the person had violated the law....

    Pioneer Press ^ | 5-12-14 | Hal Davis
    To the trial judge, the case of Daniel Garcia-Mendoza seemed to be a police stop based on "driving while Latino." Plymouth police officer Ryan Peterson said he was suspicious because "the driver had both hands on the steering wheel and was looking straight ahead." What's more, neither driver nor passenger "were looking at me." Checking the license plate, Peterson learned there was no driver's license listed for the car's owner. Peterson pulled over the 2003 Chevy Tahoe on Interstate 94 in Minneapolis on March 19, 2012. "Luckily for Peterson, perhaps," neither Garcia-Mendoza nor his passenger had a driver's license, the...

    The Surveillance State goes big in an article from Gizmodo, which describes early testing of a "God's-eye" system that collates information from multiple sources on the ground, giving the authorities what inventor Ross McNutt describes as "a live version of Google Earth, only with TiVo capabilities." What McNutt's system does grows more amazing, and perhaps more chilling, as you read more about how it works: It's sort of similar to what your average satellite can do—except, in this case, you can rewind the video, zoom in, and follow specific people and cars as they move around the grid. It's not...
  • U.S. Economy Grows 3.2% in 4Q

    01/30/2014 6:02:24 AM PST · by mykroar · 62 replies ^ | 1/30/14 | Reuters
    Robust household spending and rising exports kept the U.S. economy on solid ground in the fourth quarter, but stagnant wages could chip away some of the momentum in early 2014. Gross domestic product grew at a 3.2 percent annual rate, the Commerce Department said on Thursday, in line with expectations. While that was a slowdown from the third-quarter's brisk 4.1 percent pace, it was a far stronger performance than earlier anticipated and was welcome news in light of a 0.3 percentage point drag from October's partial government shutdown and a much smaller contribution to growth from a restocking by businesses....
  • Judge Upholds NSA Phone Snooping Program [ "reasonableness" is the liberal litmus test ]

    Today, a judge ruled that the NSA surveillance program that collects millions of American's phone calls is "lawful." The case was brought by the ACLU: American Civil Liberties Union et al v. Clapper et al, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 13-03994 In his ruling, U.S District Judge Willian Pauley described how the government program "vacuums up information about virtually every telephone call to, from, or within the United States." But went on to say that the program's constitutionality "is ultimately a question of reasonableness," and that there was no evidence that the government had used "bulk...

    You know things are bad for President Obama when even Warren Buffett has soured on Obamacare and says that "we need something else." Money Morning writes: "Healthcare costs in the United States are like a tapeworm eating at our economic body. "Those words come from famed investor Warren Buffett, who said he would scrap Obamacare and start all over. "'We have a health system that, in terms of costs, is really out of control,' he added. 'And if you take this line and you project what has been happening into the future, we will get less and less competitive. So...
