As you know, I could not give a rat's tuchus as to what goes on in the U. S., with one exception.
That exception is when pointing out certain things occurring in the U. S. will help demonstrate to Jews reasons to leave, and to re-locate permanently to Israel (aliyah).
This is a must see video. When a notably left-wing news source, such as MSNBC, is critical of the current, left-wing, formerly proclaimed Messiah, President, it pays to pay attention to the criticism.
I am not at all familiar with Rachel Maddow, and her take on things. However, I do believe that she did a very good job analyzing this particular speech of President Obama's. Anyone residing in the U. S., or planning to visit should find this speech frightening.
Rachel Maddow did make one mistake, though. In one of her statements, she suggested that the longest amount of time any citizen in a normative democracy can be held without due process is 28 days, and that is in the United Kingdom.
However, in Israel, I have known citizens who have been in "administrative attention," for up to six months, based on the recommendation of Israel's
secret police Shabba"k (General Security Service). True, there was court approval, yet charges were never filed, let alone a trial held.
Perhaps Maddow does not consider Israel to be in the category of "normative democracy," in which case she would be correct.
Then, I saw this...
13-Year-Old Boy Questioned by Secret Service Over Facebook Posting
(FoxNews.com) A 13-year-old boy in Washington state faced federal interrogation by a Secret Service agent over a Facebook posting that warned President Obama of suicide bombers, q13fox.com reports.
Vito LaPinta of Tacoma, Wash., said he posted a message on Facebook after Usama bin Laden's death, saying Obama should be careful of possible retaliatory acts against him by other terror members, according to the station.
"I was saying how Usama was dead and for Obama to be careful because there could be suicide bombers," the boy told the station.
A week later, the boy said a man walked into Truman Middle School "with a suit and glasses and he said he was part of the Secret Service."
"He told me it was because of a post I made that indicated I was a threat toward the president," he said.
The boy's mother, meanwhile, says she's not happy her son was questioned by Secret Service without her knowledge or consent, the station reports.
"I just about lost it," Timi Robertson told the station. "My 13 year-old son is supposed to be safe and secure in his classroom and he's being interrogated without my knowledge or consent privately."
Indiana High Court Rules People Cannot Resist Illegal Entry by Police Into HomesThinks it's just about fighting "terrorism" and "terrorist threats?" Watch this...
(FoxNews.com) INDIANAPOLIS -- 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.
"We believe ... a right to resist an unlawful police entry into a home is against public policy and is incompatible with modern Fourth Amendment jurisprudence," David said. "We also find that allowing resistance unnecessarily escalates the level of violence and therefore the risk of injuries to all parties involved without preventing the arrest."
Justices Robert Rucker and Brent Dickson strongly dissented, saying the ruling runs afoul of the U.S. Constitution's Fourth Amendment against unreasonable search and seizure, The Times of Munster reported....
