Supreme Court: Pennsylvania Cops No Longer Need A Warrant To Search Citizens’ Vehicles

Pennsylvania police officers no longer need a warrant to search a citizen’s vehicle, according to a recent state Supreme Court opinion. The high court’s opinion, released Tuesday, is being called a drastic change in citizens’ rights and police powers. Previously, citizens could refuse an officer’s request to search a vehicle. In most cases, the officer


Supreme Court Strikes Blow To 4th Amendment With Homeowner Consent Ruling

The Supreme Court ruled that police, without a warrant, may legally enter and search a dwelling even over the vehement protestations of an occupant, so long as a co-occupant grants them access. That decision reverses a 2006 ruling, which held that the refusal of even one occupant to allow a warrantless search was sufficient to


Supreme Court Will Authorize FEMA/Internment Camps Again

Antonin Scalia, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, made a rather staggering remark today. He stated the Supreme Court will someday allow internment camps to open again. Justice Antonin Scalia predicted today that the Supreme Court will once again allow for the use of internment/FEMA camps to be used in America, as they were in World


Supreme Court Gives Monsanto Full Ability To Sue Farmers

Do you remember the 2011 lawsuit from the Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association 80+ plaintiffs (farmers and small businesses) against Monsanto?

Hobby Lobby And The Supreme Court

"The First Amendment to the Constitution reflects that concept recognized in the Ten Commandments, that the duties we owe to God and the manner of discharging those duties are outside the purview of government." - Roy Moore For a country founded upon the purpose of establishing religious freedom, the state worship establishment deems that their


Drone Victims' Lawyer Denied Visit To Congress

The US government is being accused of derailing a congressional hearing that would be the first to hear testimony from survivors of an alleged CIA drone strike by failing to grant the family's lawyer a visa. Shahzad Akbar, a legal fellow with the British human rights group Reprieve and the director of the Pakistan-based Foundation


The Supreme Court Just Eliminated The Fifth Amendment (PETITION)

Think the end of DOMA or the Voting Rights Act will change the US? The Supreme Court just handed down a decision that rewrites the Constitution, claiming we have no Fifth Amendment protection unless we explicitly call for it. Remaining silent no longer protects you from self-incrimination. In order to have your Constitutional rights asserted,


NYPD Stop and Frisk Ruled Unconstitutional

  Longstanding NYPD stop and frisk practices are flagrantly racist. They violate constitutional privacy rights. People of color are systematically targeted. Hundreds of thousands of law abiding residents are persecuted. According to New York's ACLU, mostly minority "New Yorkers (were) subjected to police stops and interrogations more than 4 million times since 2002." NYPD records


The Coming National DNA Database

  A national DNA database is coming.  Barack Obama has already said that he wants one.  A major Supreme Court decision last month paved the way for one.  The DNA of those that commit “serious crimes” is already being routinely collected all over the nation.  Some states (such as New Jersey) are now passing laws


Entertained Out of Your Freedoms (VIDEO)

Our Constitution was not written in the sands to be washed away by each wave of new judges blown in by each successive political wind. For those who did not know the severity of that which is taking place in their country on a daily basis concerning some of the immoral, anti-constitutional and anti-American decisions


Pretended Legislation Through Assault (VIDEOS)

  “I believe granting liberty to gay people advances a compelling government interest, that such an interest cannot be adequately advanced if “pockets of resistance” to a societal statement of equality are permitted to flourish, and hence that a law that permits no individual exceptions based on religious beliefs will be the least restrictive means


Bye-bye 5th Amendment! Supreme Court Decides: Anything You Don't Say Can and Will Be Used Against You

Everyone knows that when building a police state, it’s vital to strike a few Constitutional rights off the books. Now, we can add the right to remain silent to the graveyard of the American justice system. How can you expect the people to be properly subjugated with all those pesky freedoms that the Bill of


The Essence of DNA Identity

"A moral principle in genetic testing is that it should always be done with the consent of the individual. No one wants someone snooping into his DNA."  Arthur L. Caplan Do you intrinsically possess individual privacy rights, based upon natural law authority, or are your civil liberties arbitrarily defined by the current whims of government?


Supreme Court Makes Controversial Ruling: DNA Swabs Upon Arrest Without A Warrant Is Legal

“Taking and analyzing a cheek swab of the arrestee DNA is, like fingerprinting and photographing, a legitimate police booking procedure that is reasonable under the Fourth Amendment,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the court’s five-justice majority. In recent years, the decision has been discussed in lower courts. In 2011, a California court ruled that taking


Supreme Court Colludes with Monsanto

  It's no surprise. Michael Parenti calls America's High Court its "autocratic branch." It's notoriously pro-business. It's longstanding. In Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railway (1886), it granted corporations legal personhood. More recently, in Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes et al (June 2011), it denied longstanding sexual discrimination class action redress. It overruled a
