Privatize the TSA

As the holiday travel season draws to a close, many people are getting their second yearly hand of love from the Transportation Security Administration. A better solution to air travel security is to privatize the TSA. Let each airline and airport decide, and fund, its own security.

US District Court Judge Rules NSA Has to Stop Collecting Data, For Now

They might still be monitoring your phone calls to mom and bartering for gold with your World of Warcraft character, but for the foreseeable future, the NSA will have to shut down its metadata collection program...at least according to US District Court Judge Richard Leon, who today approved an injunction against the operation pending the outcome of litigation.

The Know-Nothing President

Last week, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Senator Dianne Feinstein, announced that President Obama didn’t know the United States was collecting communications data of allied leaders. In other words, Sen. Feinstein is suggesting that our intelligence agencies do not clue in the President to what sort of intelligence the United States government is gathering. Let that one sink in for a sec.

Syria, the NSA, Obamacare, and Impeachment

In every one of these situations: the push to attack Syria, the NSA spying on citizens, funding and implementation of Obamacare; proponents want to allow the government to do something it should not do, but claim we will be able to stop it if it goes any further. That thinking is backwards. The way to stop the NSA from gathering citizens' data, to keep the attack on Syria from escalating, and to stop Obamacare, is not to allow them to get started (funded) in the first place.

Which Governments Requested Facebook User Info?

Nothing is safe from the scrutiny of the surveillance state, not even your Facebook likes. Especially if you're under investigation by any national government.

In the Name of National Security

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. -C.S. Lewis News breaks this morning that the NSA has the ability to monitor 75% of the nation's internet traffic at once. They can watch what 75% of Americans are doing at any one time online. Think on that for a moment.

NYPD's "Stop and Frisk" Found Unconstitutional, But Was This a Good Decision?

Yesterday, U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin ruled the New York Police Department's "stop and frisk" procedure unconstitutional, indicating it amounted to "racial profiling." Sounds like a solid win for the Fourth Amendment, right? Maybe not.As Mayor Bloomberg explained:As recently as 1990, New York City averaged more than six murders a day. Today, we’ve driven that down to less than one murder a day. If murder rates over the last 11 years had been the same as the previous 11 years, more than 7,300 people who today are alive would be dead.

Dusting Off the Third Amendment: A Creative Response to Domestic Spying

Fourth Amendment arguments against the NSA surveillance programs are plentiful these days. The general perception by the public, and numerous government officials, is that warrantless surveillance and data mining is an unconstitutional search and seizure under the Fourth Amendment. However, the existence of secret FISA courts could prove to be an impediment to Fourth Amendment challenges, which is why it’s time to dust off the often neglected and forgotten Third Amendment.
