  • Appeals Court Delivers Devastating Blow to Cellphone-Privacy Advocates

    The Intercept ^ | May 31, 2016 | By Jenna McLaughlin
    COURTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY are grappling with a key question for the information age: When law enforcement asks a company for cellphone records to track location data in an investigation, is that a search under the Fourth Amendment? By a 12-3 vote, appellate court judges in Richmond, Virginia on Monday ruled that it is not — and therefore does not require a warrant.The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld what is known as the third-party doctrine: a legal theory suggesting that consumers who knowingly and willingly surrender information to third parties therefore have “no reasonable expectation of privacy” in that information...

    BACKGROUND INFO AT HILLCAP.ORG The story is being written by the NEW YORK TIMES, but you heard it first here on FreeRepublic, the site of record. The California Appellate Court in Los Angeles has remanded the Peter Paul civil suit against Hillary Clinton, et al back to the Los Angeles Superior Court. More importantly, the Appellate Court denied David Kendall's motion to strike on the merits and remove her as a defendant. Paul's motion to bring David Rosen back in as a defendant was denied. Rosen will only be a witness in the civil case. Perhaps this time he will...
  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

In a report released Thursday, the U.N. panel outlined four possible options for the future of Internet governance for world leaders to consider at a November "Information...

  • Infanticide in Virginia - (beyond "disturbing")

    WASHINGTON TIMES.COM ^ | JUNE 7, 2005 | EDITORIAL
    What happens when a court constitutionalizes infanticide? We ask the question because a federal appeals court in Virginia appears to have done just that. In a contentious 2-1 decision last week that places Virginia in the hot seat of the abortion debate, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond threw out Virginia's partial-birth abortion ban, sanctioning the actions of an abortionist plaintiff who crushes the heads and dismembers the arms and legs of infants as they emerge from the womb. The law the court struck down was similar to the partial-birth abortion ban Congress passed in 2003 and...

    WASHINGTON - A day after a group of centrist senators averted a showdown that threatened the business and cooperation in the U.S. Senate, negotiators of the deal basked in the glow of victory. But beneath the relief that the crisis was averted, many at the Capitol on Tuesday worried that the Senate remains as deeply divided as before the agreement. Members of both parties complained that the bargain over the president's contentious judicial nominees cost them too much. The negotiators - dubbed the Gang of 14 - have no plans to meet further on other issues; the deal is not...

Nelson is up in 2006...and facing a hard race from popular GOP Gov Mike Johanns. Nelson is among the most conservative of Senate Dems..Does this make sense, because Nelson votes with the GOP on most of the key issues..?

    WASHINGTON - Democratic Party leaders said Wednesday they want to know why Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites) ended his presidential campaign with more than $15 million in the bank, money that could have helped Democratic candidates across the country. Some said he will be pressured to give the money to Democratic campaign committees rather than save it for a potential White House bid in 2008. "Democrats are questioning why he sat on so much money that could have helped him defeat George Bush (news - web sites) or helped down-ballot races, many of which could have gone our...

    (The) "nuclear option," (is) a parliamentary maneuver to effectively change Senate rules so that only a simple majority is needed to end a filibuster of a judicial nominee. Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., said he has not decided whether he would invoke that option next year. Robert F. Bennett, R-Utah, the chief deputy majority whip, said such a move would occur only if Democrats filibuster a Supreme Court nomination. It's the last paragraph in the source link.
