Terror by Night: Who Pays the Price for Botched SWAT Team Raids? We Do
Post Date: 2024-02-01 10:09:21 by Ada
“We’re all potential victims.”—Peter Christ, retired police officer Sometimes ten seconds is all the warning you get. Sometimes you don’t get a warning before all hell breaks loose. Imagine it, if you will: It’s the middle of the night. Your neighborhood is in darkness. Your household is asleep. Suddenly, you’re awakened by a loud noise. Barely ten seconds later, someone or an army of someones has crashed through your front door. The intruders are in your home. Your heart begins racing. Your stomach is tied in knots. The adrenaline is pumping through you. You’re not just afraid. You’re terrified. Desperate to protect yourself and your ...

Why is no one wondering why the Trump trials have such idiotic jurors?
Post Date: 2024-01-28 10:49:50 by Ada
“There is no greater tyranny than that which is perpetrated under the shield of the law and in the name of justice.” --Montesquieu Those of us old enough to remember the infamous trial of O.J. Simpson will certainly remember the daily presence in the court of Jo-Ellen Demetrius, the jury consultant who determined which people among the jury pool would be likely to decide in Simpson’s favor. Few of us had heard of jury consultants then, but they’ve certainly been around since the Simpson trial. A jury consultant’s job is to research, as closely as possible, each prospective juror by any means necessary so that the defense can select the persons who may be most ...

Supreme Court Rules It's Illegal For National Guard To Guard Nation U.S.
Post Date: 2024-01-23 02:09:03 by Ada
· Jan 22, 2024 · Click here to view this article with reduced ads. Article Image U.S. — In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court has ruled that it's now illegal for the Texas National Guard to guard Texas or the nation. "Using the National Guard to guard the nation is an egregious misuse of the National Guard," wrote Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, who sided with the majority. "When the federal government has decreed that the nation not be guarded so that millions of illegal immigrants will swarm the border and settle in cities across the nation to swing the 2024 presidential election for Biden, states have no right to disobey that decree by ...

Americans Enslaved Themselves to the State When They Accepted the Income Tax
Post Date: 2024-01-19 08:57:22 by Ada
It was not until 1913, 137 years after the Declaration of Independence established a free people who are no longer free, that there was an income tax. Years ago I researched and wrote the story of how it happened. It exists somewhere in print. In the old analogue, library card file days, it would have been easy to find. The income tax required a Constitutional Amendment. I remember some of the story. What I remember is this: The threshold for being subject to income tax was high, and the first rate was 1%. The Georgia legislature voted to ratify the amendment because as one legislative leader concluded, “there’s no one in Georgia with an income high enough to be subject to the ...

How Berenson v Biden has been caught up in two big Supreme Court cases over government efforts to control free speech
Post Date: 2024-01-15 15:22:45 by Ada
Will we wind up waiting for decisions on them before we learn if my suit can move ahead? Only federal Judge Jessica G.L. Clarke knows... This spring, the Supreme Court will decide a lawsuit brought by the state of Missouri over whether the federal government can press social media companies to censor their users. The suit has become the most important First Amendment case in decades. Last July, a federal district court ruled for Missouri, finding the Biden Administration had violated the Constitution by pushing tech companies to target users for legal speech. In September, a federal appellate court in Texas affirmed that ruling. Now the Biden Administration has asked the high court to ...

Supreme Court poised to end ‘constitutional revolution’ that’s marred US governance for 40 years
Post Date: 2024-01-15 15:13:06 by Ada
When Justice John Paul Stephens issued his 1984 opinion in Chevron U.S.A. v. National Resources Defense Council, he started what legal scholar Gary Lawson later called “nothing less than a bloodless constitutional revolution.” At long last, on Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear two cases that may signal the beginning of the end to that revolution. Article I of the Constitution explicitly directs that “All legislative Power herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States,” not regulatory agencies. Yet Justice Stephens’ opinion found that “agenc[ies] may . . . properly rely upon the incumbent administration’s views of wise ...

New York law attacks religious freedom
Post Date: 2024-01-05 09:12:59 by Ada
A New York statute targeting Chick-fil-A for its Christian faith turns American history—and Constitutional law—upside down. The “Rest Stop Restaurant Act” seeks to compel food service providers to stay open seven days a week in publicly-owned rest areas and other facilities, or be denied contracts to provide services. This is not merely an attack on the faith of a private business chain; it is an open war against fundamental constitutional liberties. New York Blue Laws Historically, American colonies widely implemented “Blue Laws” that forbade trade on the Sabbath day—Sundays. Blue Laws compelled days of rest: New York banned Sunday sales of goods in ...

Legal scholar Jonathan Turley blasts Colorado Supreme Court decision to remove Trump from Republican primary ballot

Legal scholar Jonathan Turley blasts Colorado Supreme Court decision to remove Trump from Republican primary ballot 12/25/2023 // Ethan Huff The Colorado Supreme Court has decided to axe Donald Trump from the state's 2024 Republican primary ballot, and legal scholar Jonathan Turley thinks this is a mistake. In an appearance on Fox News this week, Turley stated that the court is doing the bidding of the establishment by barring Trump from the ballot and thus decreasing his chances of a victory. "Well, this court just handed partisans on both sides the ultimate tool to try to shortcut elections, and it's very, very dangerous," Turley said. "I mean, this country is ...

Supreme Court leaves Illinois semiautomatic gun ban in place
Post Date: 2023-12-16 20:46:57 by Dakmar
The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday left in place an Illinois ban on AR-15 semiautomatic weapons. Two lower courts have upheld the law, and Thursday's Supreme Court action marked the second time in six months that the justices have declined to intervene. Illinois passed the ban on assault weapons after the 2022 Independence Day parade shooting that left seven people dead and 48 wounded. The gunmen in the July 4th shooting fired 83 rounds in under a minute using an AR-15. The ban prevents people from owning semiautomatic weapons, such as the one used in that shooting, as well as magazines that enable handguns and rifles to fire off many rounds without reloading. Last year, the Supreme ...

Liberals Institutionalizing Poor Behavior Is Dragging America Down
Post Date: 2023-12-16 20:38:18 by Dakmar
From teenagers engaged in violence without punishment, to university students receiving undeserved marks, Americans are being conditioned to accept substandard and even criminal behavior as the new norm. This week, discount carrier Southwest Airlines was heralded by “customers of size” (i.e. obese passengers) after it was reported they could receive additional seats to accommodate their extra-wide bodies. At first glance, the new conditions seem perfectly reasonable as they provide the ‘special need’ fliers the ability to “purchase the necessary number of seats prior to travel to ensure the additional seat(s) is available.” In other words, if a plus-size ...

Will the Corrupt US Department of Justice (sic) Be Held Accountable?
Post Date: 2023-12-15 04:57:02 by Ada
It is a paradox that Jack Smith, who in my opinion has less integrity than the infamous Stalinist prosecutor Andrey Vyshinsky who prosecuted Stalin’s show trials of the Bolsheviks, was appointed director of the Justice (sic) Departments Office of Public Integrity. Perhaps recognizing Smith’s lack of concern with justice, Merrick Garland, the worst Attorney General in US history, sicced Jack Smith on President Trump and Trump supporters who attended the Trump rally labeled an “insurrection” by the whore media and Democrat Party. The way Smith got his convictions was to intentionally misapply law in order to coerce innocent people with a 20 year prison threat into a plea ...

Defying presidents and Congress, the ATF, DEA, FBI and U.S. Marshals shroud their shootings in secrecy
Post Date: 2023-12-11 12:17:41 by Ada
Despite nearly 30 years of demands for transparency, the DOJ’s law enforcement agencies release little data about whom they shoot, why and when, and they rarely use body cameras. Photo Illustration of US Marshals working an operation; a silhouette of a handgun; and a report of an officer involved shooting from the FBI. Use of force by federal law enforcement agencies remains largely a black box, free from public scrutiny. NBC News During an early Friday dinner rush in 2020, shots rang out as teen workers at a Texas Roadhouse outside Detroit took to-go orders to customers in the parking lot. Bullets whizzed overhead as people ducked for cover, witnesses said. Stray rounds hit parked ...

Tyranny Comes to Main Street
Post Date: 2023-12-09 14:05:44 by Ada
The following is the first chapter of the new book by James Bovard, Last Rights: The Death of American Liberty. Americans today have the “freedom” to be fleeced, groped, wiretapped, injected, censored, injected, ticketed, disarmed, beaten, vilified, detained, and maybe shot by government agents. Politicians are hell-bent on protecting citizens against everything except Uncle Sam. Is America becoming a Cage Keeper Democracy where voters merely ratify the latest demolition of their rights and liberties? “We live in a world in which everything has been criminalized,” warned Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. There are now more than 5,200 separate federal criminal ...

The Truth About JFK’s Assassination
Post Date: 2023-11-27 08:42:00 by Ada
November 22 was the sixtieth anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination. It was obvious in 1963 that the “official” story that a ‘lone nut,“ Lee Harvey Oswald, had gunned down the president was a lie. Here is what the great Murray Rothbard wrote about the assassination in 1992, in a review of Oliver Stone’s movie JFK: “The most fascinating thing about JFK, as exciting and well-done as it is, is not the movie itself but the hysterical attempt to marginalize, if not to suppress it. How many movies can you remember where the entire Establishment, in serried ranks, from left (The Nation) through Center to Right, joined together as one in a frantic ...

A Great Man in Moscow
Post Date: 2023-11-16 06:13:51 by Ada
When the Trump administration obtained an indictment of Edward Snowden for violation of the Espionage Act of 1917, many of us who believe that the Fourth Amendment means what it says were deeply critical of the government, and we remain so today. Snowden is the former CIA and National Security Agency operative – he was a CIA agent and was later employed by a contractor for the NSA – who blew the whistle on NSA and FBI mass undifferentiated warrantless spying on all persons in America. The spying consisted of capturing all fiber-optic data that was transmitted into, out of and within the United States. As no warrants were sought or obtained and no targets were named – ...

Republicans launch attack on First Amendment…
Post Date: 2023-11-12 09:00:37 by Ada
The right is struggling with a censorship issue that’s escalating. Conservatives are increasingly focused on silencing those who critique Israel and Jewish folks. While it would be wonderful to live in a world where everyone loves one another and disagreements never happen, that’s not our reality. “Hate speech,” like it or not, falls under the protection of the First Amendment. If the right fails to uphold this, how on earth can we credibly criticize the left for their draconian censorship tactics? The Hill: Rep. Mike Lawler (R-N.Y.) held up his new bill as a possible solution to antisemitism on college campuses, saying the debates in colleges and universities across ...

Lawyers, guns, and money (and speech): How Democrats steal our constitutional rights
Post Date: 2023-11-12 07:52:02 by Ada
One of the most basic legal premises is that the government cannot do indirectly that which it is barred from doing directly. However, in Washington, D.C., and across America, Democrats are using indirect means to destroy our constitutional rights. If you’re reading this post, I’m betting that you’re aware of the Twitter files, which revealed that the Deep State was working closely with Big Tech to censor content about Russiagate, COVID, the vaccinations, and Biden family corruption. Therefore, I won’t rehash that. However, if you haven’t seen Tucker Carlson’s most recent interview, this one with Douglass Mackey, you don’t know that the administration is ...

The Supreme Court Will Hear First Amendment Case Alleging That New York Pressured Companies To End Business With the NRA
Post Date: 2023-11-07 09:09:00 by Ada
The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case brought forward by the National Rifle Association (NRA), claiming that the New York government used coercion to pressure companies into severing ties with, and debanking, the NRA. The allegation raises questions about government overreach and brings crucial aspects of free speech and censorship into the spotlight. Notably, the case, named NRA v. Vullo, has all of the common themes of assumed government intimidation aimed at stifling speech. A central argument in the NRA’s case is that Maria Vullo, the Chief of New York’s Department of Financial Services (DFS), used tactics akin to those in Bantam Books v. Sullivan to intimidate ...

1776 (1972)
Post Date: 2023-11-06 08:04:53 by Esso
The lively and energetic film version of the Broadway musical comedy of the same name. In the days leading up to July 4, 1776, Continental Congressmen John Adams and Benjamin Franklin coerce Thomas Jefferson into writing the Declaration of Independence as a delaying tactic as they try to persuade the American colonies to support a resolution on independence. As George Washington sends depressing messages describing one military disaster after another, the businessmen, landowners and slave holders in Congress all stand in the way of the Declaration, and a single "nay" vote will forever end the question of independence. Large portions of spoken and sung dialog are taken directly ...

Guantanamo: A Constitutional Debacle
Post Date: 2023-11-04 09:30:57 by Ada
When President George W. Bush formulated the concept of an American Devil’s Island in Cuba, he did so heedless of the damage to the Constitution his experiment in torture and confinement without end would bring about. Bush made the case that torture and confinement at the U.S. Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay would allow the government to do its job. He boasted that the Constitution shouldn’t restrain him, federal laws wouldn’t apply, and federal judges couldn’t interfere. He was, of course, wrong on all counts. The Supreme Court ruled on six Gitmo cases; and the government lost five. In the case in which the government prevailed, the court ruled that the detainee filed ...

If the Fed Goes, The State Will Soon Follow

A central bank is not a natural product of banking development. It is imposed from the outside or comes into being as a result of government favors. —Vera Smith, The Rationale of Central Banking and the Free Banking Alternative Anarchy, the absence of coercive government, must not be confused with chaos. —Robert P. Murphy, Chaos Theory The Federal Reserve is dying from monetary mischief. The Fed recently made a woke mandate that will only accelerate its own demise. The Fed never should have existed. As a central bank, the Fed is a rogue institution that functions as a giant counterfeiter for hegemonic government and special interests. Government signed off on the Fed long ...

Democracy, Shemocracy
Post Date: 2023-10-17 12:43:41 by Ada
It’s tough to get people to agree; it’s even tougher to get the minority to submit to their opposition. But this is the nature of democracy – majority rule, over everyone else. We have recently been treated to a rare minority uprising, using a surprise set of tactics, some relating to rules of the game and others just relating to the game itself… and the results have been, for many viewers and participants, nothing less than tragic, horrific even. Of course, you know exactly what I am talking about. The US House of Representatives and the months-long drama of getting, and replacing, a Speaker! Dear reader, you may have thought I was going to wade into a certain ...

Supreme Court could soon quash Big Tech censorship
Post Date: 2023-10-04 11:24:25 by Ada
Justice Clarence Thomas has argued against Big Tech censorship saying these companies should have to serve all customers, just like phone companies, utilities and public accommodations. Never before in US history have Americans been less free to see and say what they want. The blame goes mostly to the social-media giants like Facebook, YouTube and Google that censor political views they don’t like. But the tech giants’ day of reckoning is near. Justice Clarence Thomas is taking them on. Phone companies like AT&T and Sprint can’t shut down your account because of your political views. American Airlines can’t refuse to sell you a ticket because you’ve ...
