Operation Choke Point: Choking the life out of the Constitution?

End Operation Choke Point

Operation Choke Point is an initiative launched by Eric Holder’s Department of Justice in 2013 meant to use banks and financial institutions to track down companies suspected of illegal activities. However, it does so without due process—a direct violation of the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable search and seizure—an idea favored by Republicans. Besides the Fourth Amendment violation, OCP also poses a direct threat to the Second Amendment because it gives the federal government the power to shut down legal guns and ammo dealers, a concern that recently became a reality. Breitbart News recently reported about the owner of a gun store in Hawkins, WI. who received word…

Last week, in an I wrote an article about the assault on the Fourth Amendment by local law enforcement, I noted the intensity of various attacks on our constitutional rights from politicians, the media, and even the Pope. I also showed how a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll showed that nearly 7 out of 10 Americans favored surrendering the right to privacy to the government in order to be safe from terrorism. Since the November elections, I’ve documented how the Republican-controlled Congress passed legislation giving power to Obama to usurp the 4th Amendments‘ right to protection against unreasonable search and seizure. In addition: I…

While John Boehner’s budget disaster made all of the headlines last week, he and his Washington-insider buddies were busy dismantling the Constitution–specifically that pesky part that deals with the right of Americans to be free from unreasonable search and seizure (the Fourth Amendment)–granting the National Security Agency broad new powers to collect phone and email communications from anyone they feel like without a warrant. They can share the data with the FBI and foreign governments. They can also keep these records indefinitely. According to Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), the bill “grants the executive branch virtually unlimited access to the communications of every American.” Let’s…

Alabama senator calls for government-licensed press

Media Liberated by Red Army

Adelbert C. “Del” Marsh, a Republican who refers to himself as a “conservative champion,” is a member of Alabama’s state Senate. He’s also an individual who apparently feels that the constitutional protections of our freedom of speech and freedom of the press should no longer apply if you are someone who covers Alabama politics. In a recent editorial to the Montgomery Advertiser, Mr. Marsh called for government bureaucrats to be given the authority to “license” journalists who cover local politics in order to protect citizens—read politicians—from “shady, fly-by-night websites offering purposely skewed and inaccurate interpretations of hard news.” “I recently asked…

On the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, I took a lot of flak from many of my readers for an article I wrote stating the following: As we approach another anniversary of the terrorist attacks that took place in New York City and Washington, D.C. on September 11, 2001, we are reminded of many things. We remember the thousands of innocent lives that were lost and the billions of dollars lost in economic damage. As great and tragic as these losses were, there was another loss that is proving to be the greatest loss of all. Because it was…
