Your Friendly Neighborhood Right-Wing Extremist
The American Spectator
by Robert Stacy McCain
October 28, 2011

My friends at the Maryland Conservative Action Network were kind enough to invite me to speak on a panel about New Media at their "Turning the Tides" conference Saturday in Annapolis.

Then on Friday, a friend sent me a link to a Huffington Post article calling for protests of the conference. This is very good news: Nothing like a bunch of noisy left-wing protesters to garner some free publicity and, as every conservative knows, you're nobody until you've been denounced by CAIR.

Your guide to D12: Occupiers return to ports for West Coast shutdown

Here we go again. You remember where the "Day of Rage" 2011 festivities first broke out earlier this fall, don't you?

Unionized longshoremen stormed the port there and took a half-dozen guards hostage in early September. They damaged railroad cars and dumped grain, smashed windows, cut brake lines, and blocked a train for hours while the ILWU and AFL-CIO cheered them on. Despite violating a judicial restraining order and committing systematically planned sabotage and trespassing, most of the thugs got away with wrist slaps. The International Longshore and Warehouse Union received a $250,000 fine to cover damages from the vandalism. One of the mobsters arrested was this unhinged ILWU guy, who threatened to beat up KGW reporters...

Your guide to sleazy Democratic Party-backed banks

Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod and his hatchet people are still yammering about GOP presidential rival Mitt Romney's overseas investments.

It's time for the Romney campaign to educate voters about all the shady financial institutions embraced by Democrats right here on American soil. The fat-cat narrative attacks on Republicans won't go away by making nice with the White House - or by relying on Beltway journalists to drop their double standards and vet the president's own bad bank entanglements. Indeed, The New York Times admitted this week that their staff and other political journalists from every major media outlet submit their work to the White House for unprecedented review, editing and "veto power." Fortunately, the truth manipulators and message massagers haven't gotten to this column yet. So, let's talk sleazy Democratic Party-backed banks, shall we?

Your Life as an Open Book
New York Times
August 18, 2006

AOLs misstep in briefly posting its customers Internet search queries has reminded many Americans that their private searches are not entirely their own.

Privacy advocates and search industry watchers have long warned that the vast and valuable stores of data collected by search engine companies could be vulnerable to thieves, rogue employees, mishaps or even government subpoenas. Four major search companies were served with government subpoenas for their search data last year, and now once again, privacy advocates can say, "We told you so." AOLs misstep last week in briefly posting some 19 million Internet search queries made by more than 600,000 of its unwitting customers has reminded many Americans that their private searches - for solutions to debt or bunions or loneliness - are not entirely their own.

Some people think the Occupy Wall Street/Whatever movement harkens back to the 1960s. Me? I'm getting bad, late 1980s flashbacks.

Your Privacy Is Gone
Personal Liberty Alerts
by Tim Young
December 3, 2012

Have you been paying attention to the news lately? Have you seen where your rights are being flushed down the toilet on a daily basis? I feel like we were safe for a few moments after 9/11.

The government started to look into conversations and into computers where they had never poked their noses before. Don't get me wrong. As you read on, you'll see that I don't like people snooping on me because, in the end, I want my privacy respected. But at the beginning of all of this, I thought it was OK. Like many of you, I wanted terrorists caught by any means possible. I wanted those punks who wanted to destroy America to be found. If that meant wiretapping and all sorts of other ways of spying on our people, then so be it. The problem is that something went wrong - very wrong.

Your Right of Defense Against Unlawful Arrest
constitution.org
by Howard Jones
May 2, 2013

"Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer's life if necessary." Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306.

This premise was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case: John Bad Elk v. U.S., 177 U.S. 529. The Court stated: "Where the officer is killed in the course of the disorder which naturally accompanies an attempted arrest that is resisted, the law looks with very different eyes upon the transaction, when the officer had the right to make the arrest, from what it does if the officer had no right. What may be murder in the first case might be nothing more than manslaughter in the other, or the facts might show that no offense had been committed."

Your right to record the police
Hot Air
by Jazz Shaw
September 5, 2011

In an era where virtually every phone is a combination audio recorder, still shot and video camera, one disturbing trend of late has been the increasing habit of police to arrest citizens who record their activities in the public square.

Glenn Reynolds, in the Examiner, goes on to detail the additional case of Simon Glik in Massachusetts, who recently won an appeal in the United States Court of Appeals For The First Circuit. Mr. Glik was arrested for videotaping police in the act of detaining a suspect on a public street and subsequently charged with "wiretapping." I should say up front that I'm pretty much always a big supporter of the police, having had more than a few of them in our family. But when they conduct their business out in public, they are held to a high standard. If they are dong their jobs properly, they should have nothing to fear from the scrutiny of the rest of the citizens.
