    On Thursday, the Supreme Court issued a ruling in Vega V Tekoh, a case involving the administration of Miranda rights, with the court ruling that a suspect’s words or statements can be used in court regardless of their Miranda rights. For background, these are the facts of the case in question: Terence Tekoh worked as a patient transporter in a hospital in Los Angeles. After a patient accused him of sexual assault, hospital staff reported the allegation to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department. Deputy Carlos Vega went to the hospital to ask Tekoh questions and take Tekoh’s statement. Although the...

    A New York Times column suggested Monday that Judge Kimball Mizelle's decision to block the government mask mandate for transportation could "undermine the federal government's authority." Co-authors Lawrence Gostin, a professor of global health law at Georgetown Law and the faculty director of the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, and writer and civil rights lawyer Duncan Hosie, wrote in the column that Trump-appointed judges are using the pandemic health regulations to "dismantle the national government's legal authority to solve problems." .... The CDC, they said, "must have the legal authority to protect public health." ..... "But decisions...

    The publicly funded University of North Texas was dealt a blow in court after a federal judge said school officials can be held responsible for firing employees for exercising their right of free speech. In his 69-page order of March 11, Judge Sean Jordan, of the United States District Court for Eastern Texas, found that university officials should have known that math professor Nathaniel Hiers’ speech “touched on a matter of public concern and that discontinuing his employment because of his speech violated the First Amendment,” before they fired him for going public with his disagreement with the left-wing concept...

    @ChadPergram 1) Fox is told there are more conversations this week among Washington security officials if there were to be a trucker convoy descend on Washington, DC and specifically the US Capitol, ala the protests in Ottawa 2) That said, Fox is told there is some disagreement about how to approach a potential trucker convoy in Washington, DC. Fox is told the Secret Service would like Capitol officials to again put up the fence which encircled the Capitol grounds after the riot last year 3) Such a plan could include closing off the immediate environs of the Capitol complex and...

    In a nearly unanimous decision, the Supreme Court has ruled that judges cannot create "exceptions" to the United States Constitution. "As the Supreme Court has recognized, the right to confront and cross-examine witnesses is one of the bedrock constitutional protections afforded to criminal defendants," said constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute and author of "Battlefield America: The War on the American People." "At its core, the Sixth Amendment acts as a restraint on the government’s power to unfairly punish citizens in criminal cases, putting safeguards in place to prevent the accused from being indiscriminately stripped of...

    Today marks the 230th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, the foundational document that guarantees basic liberties—like freedom of religion, speech, and association—to all American citizens. Never has it been more important for us to reflect on those rights, for never before have those rights been more threatened than they are right now. Our nation is fixated on the idea of “rights.” But even as we throw the word around constantly, we’re in danger of forgetting what rights actually are: who grants them, who has them, and what they really mean. If we lose sight of the...

President Trump has said the awakening of the public is key to this transformation.Q describes this awakening as follows: "The Great Awakening ('Freedom of Thought’), was designed and created not only as a backchannel to the public (away from the longstanding 'mind’ control of the corrupt & heavily biased media) to endure future events through transparency and...

    When you run down the list of issues the Oath Keepers are worried about, it reads a lot like a bill of particulars from the American Civil Liberties Union. The Oath Keepers don't like warrantless searches. They're upset that the executive branch has claimed the power to classify American citizens as enemy combatants, detain them indefinitely, and try them before military tribunals. They worry that a large-scale terrorist attack similar to 9/11 could lead to the mass detention of Arabs or Muslims, just as Japanese Americans were detained during World War II. They worry about crackdowns on political speech, protest,...

    There can be no compromise with those whose political program requires erasing American citizens' constitutionally guaranteed rights to freely speak and freely worship. On May 15, Fox News reported that three Republican senators would like to write caveats into the Equality Act that might give them the political cover to vote for the bill to criminalize free speech and Christianity in the United States.“Representatives from the offices of Sens. Thom Tillis, R-N.C.; Rob Portman, R-Ohio and Susan Collins, R-Maine, met with groups including the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), Concerned Women for America, the Family Research Council and American...

    A few Fridays ago, executives from Facebook, Twitter, and Google went in for their semiannual grilling in front of our legislature. Representatives from both parties channeled what they surely thought was righteous anger at these firms for allowing speech that those government employees – the legislator’s whose salaries we pay – don’t like or even find dangerous. This hearing echoed others where U.S. Senators, a more refined bunch we’re told, castigated the telecommunications firms that provide the chat, scrolling text, and video features we collectively refer to as social media for permitting the speech of their citizenry that they find...

    Online Library of Liberty ^ | 1977, 1997 edition | Raoul Berger
    It is the thesis of this monumentally argued book that the United States Supreme Court - largely through abuses of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, has embarked on "a continuing revision of the Constitution, under the guise of interpretation." Consequently, the Court has subverted America's democratic institutions and wreaked havoc upon Americans' social and political lives. One of the first constitutional scholars to question the rise of judicial activism in modern times, Raoul Berger points out that "the Supreme Court is not empowered to rewrite the Constitution, that in its transformation of the Fourteenth Amendment it has demonstrably done...

    By John F Di Leo - The following are facts. There are innumerable issues in the world of public policy which are opinions, but there are also hard facts. Society often does itself a great disservice by conflating the two. Treating a fact as if it were mere opinion can be even worse than treating an opinion as if it were fact.

    The blatant, in-your-face assault on free speech by America’s largest tech companies is about more than just stifling political dissent – it’s about advancing the agenda of globalist technocrats with designs on seizing the world economy, says Patrick Wood, founder and director of Citizens for Free Speech. In an interview with Joshua Phillip of the Epoch Times, Wood connected the dots between the Big Tech takeover of society, the “Great Reset” being launched this week in Davos by the World Economic Forum, and the ongoing attempt to crush free speech. It’s all part of a global revolution now in progress....

In an interview with Breitbart News’ editor-in-chief Alex Marlow on Breitbart News Daily on Sirius XM Patriot 125, David Mamet blasted the shut-down and stay-at-home orders that have once again taken effect in many states, leading to widespread economic devastation. “It just doesn’t make any sense.

    SAN JOSE DE GUANIPA, Venezuela (Reuters) - Francisco Belisario, a Venezuelan mayor, retired general and member of the ruling Socialist party, had enough. His loudest local critic had accused him of bungling the response to the coronavirus outbreak and other big problems. In August, he wrote a state prosecutor and requested an “exhaustive investigation” of his nemesis, Giovanni Urbaneja, a former lawmaker who had become a gadfly to the mayor and other Socialist officeholders. Urbaneja, Belisario wrote in a letter reviewed by Reuters, was conducting a “ferocious smear campaign” on Facebook and elsewhere. Urbaneja not only defamed him and President...
