At the same time, the internet has become a 'paradise' for terrorists and criminals who can operate out of the reach of the authorities.

In a win for abortion foes, Supreme Court rejects clinic buffer zone

In a win for abortion foes, Supreme Court rejects clinic buffer zone 26 Jun 2014 The Supreme Court has rejected an effort by Massachusetts effort to enforce a 35-foot buffer zone around abortion clinics. The narrowly written 9-0 decision is a free-speech victory for abortion opponents. It upholds the rights of "sidewalk counselors" who wish to speak to young pregnant women to persuade them against having an abortion. The ruling is a setback for women's health clinics that have tried to prevent protesters from blocking their doors.

Supreme Court rules against Obama on recess appointments

Supreme Court rules against Obama on recess appointments [But when unelected Bush did it, it was fine and dandy!] 26 Jun 2014 The Supreme Court has ruled President Obama exceeded his power under the Constitution by filling federal positions when the Senate was on a brief break. But the narrow ruling also preserved the president's power to make recess appointments in general. While the president is authorized to fill "vacancies" while the Senate is on "recess," the justices decided in a 9-0 ruling that the Senate was not on a true recess in January 2012 when Obama filled three seats on the National Labor Relations Board.

MH370: Plane was in controlled flight after contact was lost, officials suspect

MH370: Plane was in controlled flight after contact was lost, officials suspect 24 Jun 2014 Investigators have concluded that Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which veered off course and disappeared on March 8, was probably not seriously damaged in the air and remained in controlled flight for hours after contact with it was lost, until it ran out of fuel over the southern Indian Ocean. Their conclusion, reached in the past few weeks, helped prompt the decision to move the focus of the search hundreds of miles to the southwest...Angus Houston [retired head of the Australian military who is coordinating the search] and Martin Dolan [chief commissioner of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau] declined to discuss any details about the Malaysian radar readings, nor would they speculate about why the missing plane would have been in controlled flight across the Indian Ocean.

Appeals court: States can't ban gay marriage

Appeals court: States can't ban gay marriage 26 Jun 2014 A federal appeals court ruled for the first time Wednesday that gay couples have a constitutional right to marry, extending the movement's legal winning streak and bringing the issue a big step closer to the U.S. Supreme Court. The three-judge panel in Denver ruled 2-1 that states cannot deprive people of the fundamental right to marry simply because they choose a partner of the same sex. The court dismissed as "wholly illogical" the notion that allowing gays to wed could somehow undermine traditional marriage.

Boehner readies House lawsuit over Obama executive orders 25 Jun 2014 Republican House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said on Wednesday he plans to sue President Barack Obama, accusing him of abusing his authority by going around Congress to implement his policy agenda. The suit, to be filed by the House of Representatives later this summer, takes issue with executive actions Obama has taken on issues ranging from healthcare to energy to foreign policy, Boehner said. But he declined to be specific about which administration actions he would challenge.

74% of Germans oppose permanent NATO bases in Poland and Baltics 25 Jun 2014 Nearly three-quarters of Germans oppose having permanent NATO military bases in Poland and the Baltic states as a buffer against Russia, a new poll reveals. The opinion reflects a growing trend within Europe opposing further NATO eastern expansion.

Boehner plans to file suit against Obama over alleged abuse of executive power

Boehner plans to file suit against Obama over alleged abuse of executive power --Republicans complained about numerous unilateral changes to the implementation of ObamaCare. 25 Jun 2014 House Speaker John Boehner announced Wednesday he plans to file suit against President Obama over his alleged abuse of executive power. Boehner had been weighing such a lawsuit in recent days, over concerns that Obama exceeded his constitutional authority with executive actions. The lawsuit has not yet been filed. But asked Wednesday whether he intended to proceed, Boehner said: "I am." [Gee, where was Boehner--or anyone--during the Bush regime, when the unelected dictator and his psychotic overlord, Dick Cheney, were sending anthrax via Fort Detrick to Democratic senators to force them to flip on the PATRIOT Act and vote for it (which they did, of course), were possibly involved in foul play in the death of Sen. Paul Wellstone for his Iraq war stance, setting up CIA black sites, waterboarding their 9/11 patsies, and committing war crimes on a daily basis? Just curious. --LRP]

Supreme Court limits police searches of cellphones

Supreme Court limits police searches of cellphones 25 Jun 2014 Cellphones and smartphones generally cannot be searched by police without a warrant during arrests, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously Wednesday in a major victory for privacy rights. Ruling on two cases from California and Massachusetts, the justices acknowledged both a right to privacy and a need to investigate crimes. The judges said police still can examine "the physical aspects of a phone to ensure that it will not be used as a weapon." But once secured, they said, "data on the phone can endanger no one" and the arrested person will not be able to "delete incriminating data."

Aereo ruled illegal by US supreme court as broadcasters win copyright battle

Aereo ruled illegal by US supreme court as broadcasters win copyright battle --'Justices' accept argument of major broadcasters that Aereo's streaming TV service amounts to a violation of copyright law 25 Jun 2014 The Supreme Court ruled against internet TV service Aereo on Wednesday, handing a victory to major broadcasters who had argued the service violated their copyright and posed a fundamental threat to their businesses. The court rejected an earlier appeals court decision which had ruled the fledgling service did not breach broadcasters' copyright. The judges voted 6-3 against the earlier ruling. The ruling effectively means the court sees Aereo as similar to a cable company - and therefore liable to pay for the content it broadcasts.

Sheffield reporter threatened with arrest under anti-terrorism laws

Sheffield reporter threatened with arrest under anti-terrorism laws 24 Jun 2014 A reporter was threatened with arrest under anti-terrorism laws and forced to erase potentially important video evidence after filming a protest in Sheffield. The editor of the Sheffield Star has demanded an explanation as to why his reporter, Alex Evans, was warned off filming a protest against cuts to free travel provision for pensioners and disabled people by British transport police officers on Monday. Evans claims he was ordered to erase footage he'd recorded on his phone because he did not have permission to film on private property [!?!] inside Sheffield station. When he initially resisted the request and continued to film, he says he was told he could be arrested under terror laws.

Fisa court grants extension of licence for bulk collection of US phone records

Fisa court grants extension of licence for bulk collection of US phone records --Reauthorisation is fifth since the Guardian revealed existence of Section 215 telephony metadata program in June last year --Court approves request in secret 20 Jun 2014 US intelligence agencies have made a fifth attempt to extend their bulk collection of American telephone records - more than a year after the controversial practice was first revealed by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden. Despite repeated calls from Congress and President Obama for the mass gathering of private US phone records to be banned, a court has approved the request in secret, allowing the NSA to continue collecting metadata until 12 September 2014. In a joint statement released late on Friday afternoon, the justice department and director of national intelligence, James Clapper, said it was necessary to continue seeking such legal extensions because the Congressional reform process supported by Obama was not yet complete.

Federal judge rules U.S. no-fly list violates Constitution

Federal judge rules U.S. no-fly list violates Constitution 24 Jun 2014 The U.S. government's no-fly list banning people accused of links to terrorism from commercial flights violates their constitutional rights because it gives them no meaningful way to contest that decision, a federal judge ruled on Tuesday. U.S. District Judge Anna Brown, ruling on a lawsuit filed in federal court in Oregon by 13 Muslim Americans who were branded with the no-fly status, ordered the government to come up with new procedures that allow people on the no-fly list to challenge that designation.

Chris Christie continues to deal with the fallout of the George Washington Bridge scandal, investigators have launched another bridge-related probe into his administration -- this time over possible securities law violations stemming from a plan to repair the Pulaski Skyway, according to a report by the New York Times.

Angry Japan farmers bring diseased cow from Fukushima to Tokyo 24 Jun 2014 Angry farmers from Fukushima brought a large cow to the centre of Tokyo Friday to demand Japan's government investigate a disease they say cattle have developed since the nuclear disaster three years ago. Operators of non-profit "Kibo no Bokujo", or "Farm of Hope", delivered a full-size black cow to the front of the agriculture ministry to demand an investigation into why it and many other animals have developed white dots on their skin since reactors went into meltdown after the earthquake and tsunami of March 2011.
