The U.S. Supreme Court Is Marching in Lockstep with the Police State

Worth reading it all. Summary is below. :

A review of the Supreme Court’s rulings over the past 10 years, including some critical ones this term, reveals a startling and steady trend towards pro-police state rulings by an institution concerned more with establishing order and protecting government agents than with upholding the rights enshrined in the Constitution.

Police officers can use lethal force in car chases without fear of lawsuits. 

Police officers can stop cars based only on “anonymous” tips.

Secret Service agents are not accountable for their actions, as long as they’re done in the name of security.

Citizens only have a right to remain silent if they assert it.

Police have free reign to use drug-sniffing dogs as “search warrants on leashes,” justifying any and all police searches of vehicles stopped on the roadside.

Police can forcibly take your DNA, whether or not you’ve been convicted of a crime.

Police can stop, search, question and profile citizens and non-citizens alike.

Police can subject Americans to virtual strip searches, no matter the “offense.”

A win for privacy: High Court rules against police cell phone snooping | Absolute Rights

At :

In a ruling that helps restore at least a modicum of constitutional privacy and due process protections in the digital age, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled today that police must first obtain a search warrant before snooping through suspects’ cell phones.

Police agencies argued that searching through a cell phone was no different than asking someone to empty their pockets, but the high court – unanimously – rejected that, saying a cell phone is fundamentally different.

In writing for the court, Chief Justice John Roberts found:

The fact that technology now allows an individual to carry such information in his hand does not make the information any less worthy of the protection for which the Founders fought. Our answer to the question of what police must do before searching a cell phone seized incident to an arrest is accordingly simple— get a warrant.

Roberts also noted that today’s cell phone technology is capable of keeping a person’s entire life in digital storage – pictures, documents, even medical records and other private materials – which makes it subject to Fourth Amendment protections.

Roberts said cell phones could lay bare someone’s entire personal history, from their medical records to their “specific movements down to the minute.”

Seriously? EPA Employees Told To Stop Pooping In The Hallway

Read at :

Just when you think you’ve heard it all…

Via :

Environmental Protection Agency workers have done some odd things recently.

Contractors built secret man caves in an EPA warehouse, an employee pretended to work for the CIA to get unlimited vacations and one worker even spent most of his time on the clock looking at pornography.

It appears, however, that a regional office has reached a new low: Management for Region 8 in Denver, Colo., wrote an email earlier this year to all staff in the area pleading with them to stop inappropriate bathroom behavior, including defecating in the hallway.

In the email, obtained by Government Executive, Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor mentioned “several incidents” in the building, including clogging the toilets with paper towels and “an individual placing feces in the hallway” outside the restroom.

Confounded by what to make of this occurrence, EPA management “consulted” with workplace violence “national expert” John Nicoletti, who said that hallway feces is in fact a health and safety risk. He added the behavior was “very dangerous” and the individuals responsible would “probably escalate” their actions.

Ground Zero Cross: Court presses atheist group to explain why artifact is 'offensive'

Apparently, being offended is not grounds for legal action. :

A federal appeals court said this week that an atheist group trying to keep the so-called Ground Zero Cross out of the National September 11 Memorial Museum must better explain how displaying the artifact is “offensive” and violates members’ constitutional rights.

The 17-foot-tall, steel beam “cross” was found in the rubble of the World Trade Center twin towers in New York that fell during the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

The cross became a sort of shrine or place of comfort for first responders who often prayed there and left messages or flowers. It was moved away from the debris a few weeks later and became a tourist attraction through several years of reconstruction.

American Atheists filed the suit in 2011, which was thrown out last year by a federal judge in the Southern District of New York.

The appeals court ruling Thursday cites an amicus brief filed by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, a nonprofit law firm that specializes in church-state law and protecting the free expression of all religious traditions.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott Signs 'Pop-Tart' Gun Bill Into Law

Hooray for common sense! :

On Friday, Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) signed a bill that prohibits schools from disciplining students who play with simulated weapons,  reported.

Lawmakers approved the so-called "Pop-Tart" bill after an 8-year-old Maryland boy earned a suspension for  last year.

The boy later received a lifetime membership to the National Rifle Association, which supported the legislation.

State Sen. Greg Evers (R), who sponsored the legislation, said it would prevent situations "where you chew a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun and you are expelled" from school, according to the .

Asked if any similar incidents had occurred in Florida, Evers cited a student who was expelled in his district.

Over 1,200 Military Dogs Put Down by Obama Regime

From :

 was bad enough. Killing over 1,200 faithful military dogs who were protecting American troops in Afghanistan is 

The heroic service dogs were euthanized because they were deemed too “dangerous” for civilian adoption or jobs with law enforcement agencies, as well as for medical reasons according to U.S. Air Force reports given to Congress.

The dogs were used as guards and to sniff out terrorist bombs.

It’s not as if no homes could be found:

Currently more than 300 people are waiting to adopt a military dog, with an average waiting time of 18 months.

Betraying those who loyally served in Afghanistan and Iraq has been characteristic of the current administration.

Obama-Appointed Judge Rules that U.S. Border Fence is Racist

From :

It now looks like protecting the U.S. border has become a victim of political correctness, regardless that it is one of the very few constitutionally mandated functions of the federal government.

Using the race card to justify not finishing the fence along the porous U.S.-Mexican border shouldn’t come as a big surprise. After all, the race card has infiltrated and politicized every other excuse for tyranny. This story, from the “You Just Can’t Make This Stuff Up” file, comes via
