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.”

Harvard Educated Michelle Obama Says Founders Not Born In America

Didn't they step right off the and sign the ?  At :

Harvard educated First Lady Michelle Obama told “attendees of a naturalization ceremony Wednesday that the Founding Fathers weren’t born in America.”

I thought this was a story from The Onion. Michelle Obama actually said this. This goes to show you how dumb smart people can be.

These are the same dumb smart people who get us into unwinnable wars, wrecked the economy, and don’t know the differences between the sexes.

Not only didn’t her Harvard and Princeton educations teach her how to feed her children, they apparently didn’t teach her much about American history:

Ted Cruz: Senate Dems, Led By Schumer, Want to ‘Repeal the First Amendment’ This Year

Don't think the 2nd Amendment is the only one under attack. :

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told attendees at a Family Research Council pastors retreat that Democrats wanted to limit free speech through amending the Constitution.
“When you think it can’t get any worse, it does,” Cruz said at the FRC’s Watchmen on the Wall 2014 event in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. “This year, I’m sorry to tell you, the United States Senate is going to be voting on a constitutional amendment to repeal the First Amendment.”

Calling these “perilous, perilous times,” Cruz said Senate Democrats have said they are ready to vote on the amendment, Senate Joint Resolution 19 – “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relating to contributions and expenditures intended to affect elections.”

“Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has announced the Senate Democrats are scheduling a vote on a constitutional amendment to give Congress the authority to regulate political speech, because elected officials have decided they don’t like it when the citizenry has the temerity to criticize what they’ve done,” he said.

Federal Court Ruling: Police Can Kick In Your Door and Seize Guns Without Warrant or Charges

2nd and 4th Amendments violated with the court's blessing. Read the complete article at :

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals may have just dealt a serious blow to the U.S. Constitution.

In a unanimous decision earlier this month the Court determined that law enforcement officers are not required to present a warrant or charges before forcibly entering a person’s home, searching it, and confiscating their firearms if they believe it is in the individual’s best interests.

The landmark suit was brought before the court by Krysta Sutterfield of Milwaukee, who had recently visited a psychiatrist for outpatient therapy resulting from some bad news that she had received. According to court records Sutterfield had expressed a suicidal thought during the visit, perhaps tongue-in-cheek, when she said “I guess I’ll go home and blow my brains out.” This prompted her doctor to contact police.

For several hours the police searched for Sutterfield, speaking with neighbors and awaiting her return home. They received an update from her psychiatrist who said that Sutterfield had contacted her and advised that she was not in need of assistance and to “call off” the search, which the doctor did not agree to. Police eventually left and Sutterfield returned home, only to be visited later that evening by the lead detective on the case:

Why Obama Calls Our Constitutional Republic a “Constitutional Democracy”

Read the whole thing at :

The Constitution explicitly guarantees a republican form of government (see ). Yet the ballyhooed Constitutional Scholar in Chief likes to call our constitutional republic a “constitutional democracy.” Here’s a recent example:

Maybe it isn’t just ignorance.  argues that Obama has his reasons for misrepresenting our form of government:

The country is being fundamentally transformed from a constitutional republic into a constitutional democracy. The difference between the two is the difference between the United States as it was established and present-day Europe.

Constitutional democracies do not have the safeguards of the separation of powers and states’ rights.

Democracy is an unbridled mobocracy. It is the tyranny of the mob. The constitution limits that but in the United States, we have other safeguards that limit the power of government and the power of the mob. The safeguards are the separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches and the separation of the individual states from the federal government.

Executive power

Ahahaha, riiiiiight. D Oh
