Potato fields in Canada's Prince Edward Island have been targeted by food terrorists who've found ways to put sharp objects into tubers grown there. Desperate farmers are offering a half-million Canadian...

The bill this time is the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), an appropriations bill to fund the military for FY 2016. The House passed its version of the bill in May. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) introduced what is called "an amendment in the nature of a substitute" to create a Senate version of the House-passed bill. The Blumenthal/Durbin amendments were introduced on top of the McCain legislation.

Much to the surprise of the general public, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled in favor of expanded the ability of law enforcement to search without warrants.

Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the majority of the court which  ruled 6 to 3 that "when occupants of a residents disagree on whether they will admit police without a warrant, the objecting occupant must be physically present," the Washington Post  reported. "That doesn't change if police have removed the objector," the court added. "An occupant who is absent due to a lawful detention or arrest stands in the same shoes as an occupant who is absent for any other reason," Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote.
