We (still) have a 1st Amendment in this country Mr. Cuomo. Thank God.
This is a very reasonable statement from former White House denizen and Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano. When I saw the headline I initially thought the op-ed was from Judge Napolitano. But no, it was Janet defending free speech. OK.
So I figured that Ms. Napolitano would probably hedge the headline the whole way throuigh the piece. But she didn’t. She basically made the case of the “liberals” of my youth. Free speech is free speech. Even very unpopular,
Independent thinkers are a liability. Compliant cogs keep the machine going.
FREE SPEECH. FREE SPEECH. A MILLION TIMES FREE SPEECH.
Perhaps we need to revert back to the tactics of the free speech advocates of the 1960s. Let us be clear.
FREE SPEECH. FREE SPEECH. FREE SPEECH. A MILLION TIMES. FREE SPEECH.

During her appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, Attorney General Loretta Lynch admitted that she asked the FBI to examine whether the federal government should take legal action against so-called climate change deniers. Attorney General Lynch is not responding to any criminal acts committed by climate change skeptics. Instead, she is responding to requests from those frustrated that dissenters from the alleged climate change consensuses have successfully blocked attempts to create new government programs to fight climate change.
Not sure how this guy isn’t using his right to free speech here. This is still the United States. The 1st Amendment isn’t suspended just because it’s inconvenient for the police. This is just bullying from law enforcement.
Translation: Give up your encryption and any remaining privacy of your users. Or else. On the other hand you in Silicon Valley could work even more closely with us and we will make sure government’s benevolent rays shine upon your companies. Your choice.
Kind of weird how government is going after the 1st Amendment, the 2nd Amendment, and the 4th all in one go here.
Make no mistake, there are many many people who despise the Bill of Rights. A good number of these people are in government.
Eternal vigilance as they say. We need to keep our eyes open and trained on Washington. An important victory for free speech and the American people.
I am from Hampton Roads which comprises Newport News, Hampton, Suffolk, Portsmouth, Norfolk, and Virginia Beach. I was born in Portsmouth and grew up for the most part in Virginia Beach. Norfolk is wedged in the middle.
Norfolk can use as many good employers as it can get. But the local university wanted to jack the land of Central Radio, well, basically because it could using connections it had in government.
But, hallelujah, Central Radio beat ODU back in court,
Let’s hope that this was just some random jerk. Let’s hope it wasn’t some union guy who knew exactly what he was doing, or was told to try to intimidate James O’Keefe by someone else.
That the recorded nut made reference to how happy he was that Andrew Breitbart was dead and how he would like to dance on Breitbart’s grave could be construed as a threat.
I sure hope it wasn’t a threat.
Sorry folks but Obama in many ways embodies the worst of “progressivism.” His administration is concerned with control, especially of the political narrative.
The Federal Election Commission is now taking comments from the public on proposed new regulations which would restrict political speech online, the so called “Gag Drudge” regs.
