Ah, the happy glow of phony numbers and a compliant mainstream media. President Barack Obama and his Democratic minions have mastered the art of deception in addressing issues such as the failures of Obamacare and vast abuses of Federal power. And with the media on their side, there’s no telling how deep the corruption goes.
Colluding with the government to secretly hand over law-abiding citizens’ private data might be bad for business in the long run, so many U.S-based tech giants are beginning to defy Federal law enforcement whenever they’re requested to do just that.
The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania issued an opinion this week that opens the way for local police to avail themselves of the same warrantless search powers that Federal law enforcement officers operating in the State already enjoy when stopping and questioning motorists.
If an armed person stops a motorist in one of the Nation’s most deserted areas and demands that person hand over the large sum of cash he’s carrying, doesn’t that make the armed person a brigand? In Nevada and other States, it’s perfectly legal…for the cops.
The U.S. economy is a house of cards. Every aspect of it is fraudulent, and the illusion of recovery is created with fraudulent statistics. American capitalism itself is an illusion.

After all, Bundy is a lone Nevada rancher. He’s hardly a spokesman for anyone other than himself; and not even a particularly good one. But real racists run through the Democrat roster like rats through a sewer.
Somewhere in an alternate universe law enforcement agents tasked with running checkpoints go out of their way to uphold the Constitution. For April Fool’s Day, Reason shows us what that would be like. H/T: Reason
Another attempt from Congressional Democrats to define the media faces a shaky future. If Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) is right, the so-called media “shield law” bill, which essentially segments application of the 1st Amendment to lock out citizen journalists while favoring members of the media establishment, will never see a floor vote.
The Supreme Court ruled today that police, without a warrant, may legally enter and search a dwelling even over the vehement protestations of an occupant, so long as a co-occupant grants them access.
