On Acosta’s removal from the White House

We all know that Mr Acosta is a jerk. But this recent lawsuit is kinda worry some. What CNN has done is put in question everyone’s rights. They are suing on the grounds that due process was not used to remove his hard pass. let’s talk about the hard pass first. This is an instrument meant to facilitate entry into the White House. It allows the person to enter with out having to go thru normal entry procedures. (like the pass you use to get into your workplace.) And like the pass you use at work, It remains the property of the White House. The White House did not deny him the ability to enter the grounds using the normal visitor routine.

Ok, so now to the ruling. They said his due process rights were denied. ok. Let’s look at the amendment they are using –

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

First let us actually read it with punctuation. I will attempt to break it down in sections. This is the first part of it, showing all that is included in the thought.

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger

now the next ,AFTER the semi-colon.

; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb.

then the next after the semi-colon.

; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law

This is the line they are using to promote this case. First, was his life deprived? or his liberty? or his property? nope. (the hard pass remains the property of the White House).  Next we get into what this statement is talking about. If you notice it says in a criminal case. Was there a criminal case here? Not that I heard. no police or law enforcement were called on him. So, according to this part there is no due process expected, is there? This case is equivalent to this:
I rent a house, I invite you in, we have a fight, I ask you to leave. Now according to this, my asking you to leave is now against due process.  Now think of it. Since courts use precedents to decide law,  we now have a decision that says you are within your rights to sue me because I asked you to leave my residence.

Does this sound right? Not to me.

In this case I would ask that the President follow thru on this lawsuit to ensure the protections that the rest us would enjoy.

To go further, we will stipulate that yes the White House is the peoples house. But for either you or I to go in it takes a number of things to happen. we must have an invite, be on a tour, all after a security check normally.  Has that right been taken from him? No. all that happened was his quick pass that allows him easy entry, was taken. He could still go thru the normal procedures to get in.

Your comments as always are welcome

Full Body Scanners?

I was watching the news again, (boring), and saw a piece about how Los Angeles is now deploying full body scanners. This bothers me. (not that I will ever be in California). The fact that they are now able to do a search without permission going against our Constitutional rights and get away with it?

4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

How are we allowing a non invasive search with out a warrant? I realize this is in Ca. and they want socialism and damned the constitution, but, this could go other places.  Ever since 9/11 and before, we have been complacent and allowed for the slow erosion of our rights under the guise of security.

As any lawsuit that I might bring from my home state will be thrown out for reasons that I don’t live in the state, I am asking somebody in that state that is of thoughtful mind to file suit against this violation of our Constitutional Rights before it can spread.

What is next? A microphone hooked up to a computer in all public places to gather our private conversations? (who needs a warrant for a cell phone tap, just turn on the mic and listen in?) and then charge us with some inane crime just for saying something that was just a thought and never an action?

fairness?

hmmm, how fair is this? the NM muslim that was training kids to shoot up schools, that had at least 1 childs body found on the compound, has been released on 20k$ bail. all the while a guy that left a dog to drown gets no bail and has to remain locked up until his trial.

Murphy and guns?

Words taken directly from My “great” governor here in NJ on his gun control stance.

“Murphy said of the 485 gun deaths in New Jersey in 2016, 80 percent of those involved a gun that came from out of state.”

Is he actually saying that 80% or approx. 400 gun deaths were due to unlawful weapons? And this is the reason that those of us that are legal gun owners need even more restrictive gun controls?  And that will stop the criminals from shooting people? That will stop the trunk loads of unlawful weapons from coming into NJ? REALLY????????????

I think it is time for the gun lobby to do what the left just loves to do, file suit on NJ for disobeying the constitution. Mr Murphy you are going down a path that will lead to your impeachment for failure to follow your oath of office.

Fake News on Facebook?

Well it seems Mr Zuckerburg is now concerned that his creation, Facebook, May contain some fake news. He says he is now going to start getting rid of all the fake news. This after the last election had a LOT of popup news sites like mine. I am wondering if he will stop all fake news sites (like this one) or just the conservative news sites?

We have seen where Mr Z. and the owners of Twitter do not like the conservative side of things and deem it their mission to only have what they approve seen by the masses. Didn’t we learn anything from all the attacks on the right from the Main stream media?

Mr Z you have created this new media that will instantly make anyone, including me, a “jourlnalist.  Are you now prepared to stop all the people that have an opinion other than yours? This media you have created is one of the best ways for all of us to learn about free speech.

If you want to do anything , a suggestion. put out a statement that not all that you see on your medium is true. that the user is expected to excersize caution and check the feeds for the truth. Simple? Oh wait, you don’t want that. this would mean the users would actually have to think. And we can’t have millions of people actually using their brains, can we?

Well that’s how I see it anyway.  Your opinions may vary. But, do me a favor, and use your mind and double check everything.
