This is what illegitimate government looks like

So-called "civil asset forfeiture" is nothing but theft under color of law.  It is unconstitutional and utterly illegitimate.

It needs to be stopped.  Period.

Here's something you see all too rarely -- not because the government's civil asset forfeiture programs aren't routinely abused -- but because it's a good way to spend lots of money fighting a losing battle. Vu Do, owner of...

Thought for the day

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber barons cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. " 
- C.S. Lewis

The Idiocracy in action.

The blind, stupid stampede to appease the SJW progs and to preen in faux self-righteousness.

BAN ALL THE THINGS!!!

Oh, but not the symbols of, say, Communism - which is responsible for the deliberate, systematic slaughter of some 100 million innocent men, women, and children.

Oh, and not the how-to guide of a murderous, pedophilic death cult which is actively waging war against the civilized world.

No, those we must embrace and celebrate, according to our ruling "elites."

"Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it."

Apple Store, Amazon drop products that are clearly not about upholding racist or segregationist views. So...does anybody know if Taylor Swift is a fan of military strategy games?

Southern Poverty Law Center now openly providing material support for terrorists

Whatever moral authority they may have once, long ago, enjoyed is now completely gone.  SPLC is actually a Progressive hate group in word and deed.

They were once a righteous advocate against hate groups such as the Klan...
Now they are a Soros funded tool looking to upend our Constitution by creating division among the races...

Did The Department of Justice Get A Gag Order Silencing Reason About The Grand Jury Subpoena?

by Ken White · June 18, 2015

On June 8 — ably assisted, as I am now, by my co-blogger Patrick — I reported on a federal grand jury subpoena issued to Reason.com in an effort to unmask commenters who used obnoxious hyperbole about Judge Katherine Forrest, who sentenced Ross "Dread Pirate Roberts" Ulbricht to life imprisonment in the Silk Road case.

(Original story of the illegal subpoena: http://popehat.com/2015/06/08/department-of-justice-uses-grand-jury-subpoena-to-identify-anonymous-commenters-on-a-silk-road-post-at-reason-com/)

Victory for Virginia Property Owner in Sign Fight:
U.S. Supreme Court Vacates Lower Court Ruling That Government Could Suppress Protest Banner

In an important decision at the intersection of free speech and property rights, the U.S. Supreme Court today vacated a 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals judgment that had allowed the city of Norfolk, Va., to suppress a banner protesting the government’s illegal attempt to seize private property by eminent domain.

The Second Coming
By William Butler Yeats

Turning and turning in the widening gyre   
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere   
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst   
Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.   
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out   
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert   
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,   
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,   
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it   
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.   
The darkness drops again; but now I know   
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,   
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,   
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

The law is no longer objective - no longer what is plainly written - but is now whatever those in power want it to be.

Thanks, SCOTUS; just in time to make a mockery of "Independence Day", too, you corrupt hacks.

For the past two weeks, Reason, a magazine dedicated to "Free Minds and Free Markets," has been barred by an order from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York from speaking publicly about a grand jury subpoena that court sent to Reason.com.
Yes, the feds can compel magazines and websites to cough up user information about obviously non-threatening trolls, while barring them from even acknowledging
