1st amendment

The fetishization of “opinion” and “free speech” is horrifying, people thinks it means they can saying anything anywhere without ever being criticized or held accountable or disagreed with regardless of their education on a subject.

What the last 48 hours told us about Trump's next 4 years
President-elect Donald Trump went nose-to-nose Wednesday with a press corps itching to cross-examine him after more than five months at arm's length, while his top nominees faced off with senators during a strategic crush of confirmation hearings.

  1. Donald Trump still hates the press, except for Fox News and Breitbart.
  2. Trump’s Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, is so supportive of Russia and Trump’s buddy Vladimir Putin that he refuses to condemn Russia’s murdering journalists and bombing civilians.
  3. Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, will not pursue alleged civil rights violations by police and police departments.
  4. FBI director James Comey, asked whether the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign’s alleged contacts with Russia, refused to comment: “Especially in a public forum, we never confirm or deny a pending investigation.” (Except, of course, when it’s Hillary Clinton.)
Everyone should have just brought guns and had it out, I’d be happy if they just dropped a bomb on them.
—  Michael Henning, Trump supporter, explaining how to handle inauguration protesters in Washington, D.C.

Hate speech is an idea made up by delusional, pampered cry-babies who are trying to take away your constitutional right to have an opinion different from their own because they’re too pussy to handle it.

Federal judge blocks new Trump travel ban
A federal judge in Hawaii has blocked President Donald Trump's new travel ban on Wednesday afternoon, hours before the ban was set to go into effect.
By Laura Jarrett, CNN

The White House argued, “It’s not a Muslim ban! Look at all the Muslim countries we’re not banning!” The court said:

“The illogic of the Government’s contentions is palpable. The notion that one can demonstrate animus toward any group of people only by targeting all of them at once is fundamentally flawed.”

Matt Drudge: a Supreme Court Justice told me to my face, “It’s over for you.”

I don’t usually make a habit of posting material from Alex Jones’s Info Wars because they’re always the first to float the “false flag” conspiracy theories that range from the absurd all the way to downright offensive. However, I was fascinated to listen to Matt Drudge (proprietor of the incredible Drudge Report) do a very rare interview with Alex Jones. 

During the interview, Drudge made a startling claim that a Supreme Court Justice told him to his face that, “It’s over for you,” referencing new copyright laws that would shut him down by making it illegal to quote a headline.

here’s the video:

I have to say here, while I admire Drudge, and I love his website, he does sound just a tad on the conspiratorial side, especially when he scoffs at technology like Google News, Facebook, and Twitter.  Those are all useful tools if used correctly, and there’s a very simple solution to avoiding their power vacuum: just don’t use them!

However, if what Drudge said about a Supreme Court Justice essentially threatening him over his 1st Amendment right to propagate information, that is truly terrifying! I wish Drudge had been willing to name a name here, but because he didn’t, I’m left with no choice but to file this away for future reference.

It doesn’t hurt to keep your guard up.  These are crazy, dangerous times we’re living in.  If there’s one thing we know for sure around here, it’s that government always tries to devour individual liberty. Whether or not I agree personally with Drudge or somebody like Alex Jones is irrelevant.  I will fight for their civil right to say whatever they want to say, however they want to say it.  After all, if we won’t defend the liberty of people we disagree with, who will defend our liberty when the tides turn?
