At a June 18 gun control rally in New Hampshire sponsored by New York mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns group, the name of Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev was read aloud as a recent victim of gun violence.

NSA spying flap extends to contents of U.S. phone calls

The National Security Agency has acknowledged in a new classified briefing that it does not need court authorization to listen to domestic phone calls, a participant said. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat, disclosed on Thursday that during a secret briefing to members of Congress, he was told that the contents of a phone call could be accessed “simply based on an analyst deciding that.” If the NSA wants “to listen to the phone,” an analyst’s decision is sufficient, without any other legal authorization required, Nadler said he learned. “I was rather startled,” said Nadler, an attorney and congressman… View Article

Supreme Court Rules That Pre-Miranda Silence Can Be Used Against Defendant To Prove Guilt

In a major loss for individual rights vis-a-vis the police, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that prosecutors could use a person’s silence against them in court if it comes before he’s told of his right to remain silent. The prosecutors used the silence of Genovevo Salinas to convict him of a 1992 murder. Because this was a non-custodial interview, the Court ruled that the prosecutors could use his silence even though citizens are allowed to refuse to speak with police. It is of little surprise that the pro-police powers decision was written by Samuel Alito who consistently rules in favor… View Article

The Scary Prospect of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

If elections were held today, the Grits would likely romp to victory, according to a recent poll. We would then be faced with the scary prospect of drama teacher Justin Trudeau hamming it up in the role of the next Prime Minister of Canada. Only reflected glory has brought him to office. Becoming leader of the Liberal Party has done nothing to stop him from committing gaffes. For example, he attributed terrorist activity to “root causes.” That surely pleased a lot of disenchanted Islamist radicals who must have seen him as a “useful idiot” who bought into their manufactured complaints… View Article

Trudeau to compensate charities that paid him to help raise money

OTTAWA – Justin Trudeau is promising to compensate all groups that paid him hefty speaking fees to participate in fundraising events since he became an MP. The Liberal leader said Sunday he’ll either give back the fees or find some other way to “make it right.” He could, for instance, give charitable groups donations equivalent to the fees charged or agree to appear at future fundraisers for them – for free this time. “I’m willing to pay all of the money back, if that’s what it comes to,” Trudeau told CTV’s Question Period. “But I am going to fix this.”… View Article
