Round two of the battle for travel freedom is well underway.
The first round, which garnered national attention in the fall of 2010, focused primarily on the TSA implementing new procedures…pat downs, body scanners….and the public outcry against it….boycotts, protests, calling congress to demand change.
But, as the public response failed to stop the scanners and searches, round two has moved to state legislatures around the country. Most prominently, Texas, where the state house just passed a bill banning TSA searches without probable cause. Click here to read the Tenth Amendment Center’s report on the bill.
People have no right to resist if police officers illegally enter their home, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled in a decision that overturns centuries of common law.
The court issued its 3-2 ruling on Thursday, contending that allowing residents to resist officers who enter their homes without any right would increase the risk of violent confrontation. If police enter a home illegally, the courts are the proper place to protest it, Justice Steven David said.
The Campaigner in Chief has shifted into the next gear. In his weekly radio address, he said we need to drill for more oil and that by doing so would create more jobs. Remember, Obama is in Campaign Mode and will say anything to get re-elected. I will give Obama credit for one thing, he does know how to campaign, he just doesn’t know when to shut-up. He’s like the used car salesman that keeps calling you after the sale, trying to get you to buy the car you already bought. People don’t seem to remember that it was Obama that signed the oil moratorium after the BP oil rig explosion and he continued to sign them even after a Federal Judge said it was illegal for him to do it. Remember when George Bush was in Office and Congress had a fit when gas prices sky rocketed? Funny how you don’t hear that now, now that there is a Democrat/Socialist/Progressive/Marxist in the White House.
Corruption has taken over Washington and the Politicians should be held accountable.
Judicial Watch has done a great job investigating Obama, below are just a few items they have found.
