What First Amendment? Virginia State Police Forced BBC Journalists to Delete Video

bill-of-rights BBC journalists at the scene of shooting suspect's car crash were threatened if they did not delete video as ordered. So I assume you have all heard that a homosexual African American shot and murdered two straight whites on live TV. This was, of course, not a hate crime and never will be labeled as one. This story from PRI caught my eye and makes me wonder why we even claim to have a First Amendment: “Virginia police order BBC journalists to delete footage of suspected shooter's crash.” BBC Read more [...] Continue reading →

Can Federal Judges Run Public Schools?

gavel scales law books Judicial tyranny, specifically in our American court system, has usurped legislative jurisdiction, and I am so bold as to add Divine jurisdiction, in our Constitutional Republic. We saw its egregious head again this past weekend after a Mississippi school district canceled Brandon High School’s marching band playing of the Christian hymn “How Great Thou Art” during halftime at Friday night’s football season opener. The reason? It was decided that singing a hymn was too similar Read more [...] Continue reading →

We May See Chick-fil-A Banned in Denver due to Crime of Heresy

eat-more-chicken The CEO believing wrong doctrines on sexuality and marriage may get Chick-fil-A banned. America is now a place where you can be forbidden to make a living if you think the wrong thoughts. If you own a business, it can get you banned. From the Denver Post: “Chick-fil-A location at DIA paused after Denver Council cites chain's LGBT stances.” Chick-fil-A's reputation as an opponent of same-sex marriage has imperiled the fast-food chain's potential return to Denver International Airport, with Read more [...] Continue reading →

Police Commissioner Wants Law Prohibiting Recording Police

police intimidation DC Police are allowed to scan us with radar guns and the government uses traffic cameras to fine us, but recording police in public should be illegal? In the past this blog has covered attempts to impose draconian penalties for recording police. We have seen that police are more than willing to intimidate people who record them at work. People have been jailed for recording police—though the victims have sometimes pushed back in court. Now, the Boston Police Commissioner is advocating more of Read more [...] Continue reading →

City Councilman Faces Prosecution for Expressing Disagreement with Supreme Court Decision

censored gagged Expressing disagreement with a court decision to change the definition of marriage in an unprecedented way is not permitted! When a politician says something wrong and grotesque, the other side or the other party sees it as an opportunity. Now they can use what the politician says against him in the next election. But when it comes to same-sex marriage, suddenly people are aware that saying the “wrong” thing is immensely popular. The Supreme Court has suppressed the self-government of all Read more [...] Continue reading →

FCC Internet Rules Angle to Shut Down Conservatives

Censorship "Net neutrality" is anything but. In the court fight that's shaping up, the major issue seems to be that the rules are written in such a way that media outlets that have always been protected by the First Amendment no longer have any rights to free speech if they publish on the Internet. The case is expected to be heard in December. The rules were voted on by the FCC earlier this year. The most telling quote from the commission's vote was this: "Broadband providers are conduits, not speakers Read more [...] Continue reading →

Another Defeat of the First Amendment in Court

Gay Cupcakes A baker lost his case that he had a First Amendment right not to support a same-sex "marriage." We have judges in this country who are completely committed to emptying the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We get to see another instance of this in the ruling, yesterday, against Jack C. Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver. A three-judge panel claimed that he was guilty of discrimination for refusing to make a wedding cake for two men. What makes this ruling extra Read more [...] Continue reading →

Georgia Uses Copyright to Keep State Law Code Inaccessible

gavel scales law books Copyright should not prevent taxpayers from learning the laws and the meaning of those laws. Law is supposed to be public. It informs members of society what actions will be punished and what actions will not be punished. People should be able to know what the laws are. Of course, with all the laws being spat out by the state and federal governments every day, that is probably not possible unless you have a photographic memory. But one could at least have the laws freely available through the Read more [...] Continue reading →

rainbow football Breitbart News reported, "Craig James Sues Fox Sports for Religious Discrimination over Gay Marriage Firing." Daniel J. Flynn wrote Monday, College football analyst Craig James filed suit against Fox Sports in a Dallas court this morning contending religious discrimination for his 2013 termination over his stance on gay marriage. “Fox Sports fired James for one reason only: his religious beliefs about marriage,” the 35-page suit charges. “In so doing, Fox Sports violated the law.

Obama Bundler Judge Bans Videos that Embarrass Planned Parenthood for Being Hannibal Lecter Incorporated

censored gagged A judge bans videos, censoring the media and canceling the First Amendment and only some conservatives are outraged. Earlier, a judge had only barred the release of video of a meeting with representatives of StemExpress, who don’t want us to know that they were eager to receive whole, intact (born alive?) “fetuses” (aka babies). Now this ruling is far broader. And, don’t be fooled by the black robes. This is the Obama Administration working through an ally. As the Federalist Read more [...] Continue reading →

Planned Parenthood Theocracy Halts the Blasphemy

censorship reality Planned Parenthood finally has succeeded in silencing the truth—whether temporarily or permanently remains to be seen. This wasn’t done directly by Planned Parenthood but by a company that purchases the baby parts from them. The Associated Press reports, “Court bars anti-abortion group from releasing new videos.” A temporary restraining order has been issued preventing an anti-abortion group from releasing any video of leaders of a California company that provides fetal tissue to researchers.

Planned Parenthood Pressures Media Not to Show Third Video

harvesting organs Planned Parenthood desperately wants to keep the truth invisible to the public. A third video was published yesterday, again providing evidence that Planned Parenthood traffics in harvested organs from aborted babies. Live Action News warns that the video disturbing: So what is Planned Parenthood doing in response? They are trying to get the News media to not broadcast footage from the video. The Truth Revolt got hold of one of their letters to a TV station in their post, “Planned Read more [...] Continue reading →
