Pentagon Defends Unconstitutional Policy Against Soldiers Sharing Faith

Pentagon personnel responded to Breitbart News’ report about court-martialing service members who share their faith in the military, which the Pentagon confirmed on May 1, and the Air Force on May 2 separately confirmed a second time. Now the Pentagon claims the opposite. But these new statements instead only compound the problem, as the Pentagon’s new definitions for terms squarely contradict what the dictionary says those terms mean. All this has taken place as the first flag officer in the military has stepped forward to defy the unconstitutional policy. May 3, 2013 5:02 AM PT

Pentagon May Court Martial Soldiers Who Share Christian Faith

The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: "Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense...Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis...”. The statement, released to Fox News, follows a Breitbart News report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith.

Holder Undercut FBI by Giving Tsarnaev Miranda Rights

Reports say the FBI was only partway through questioning Tsarnaev to get intelligence to determine who else was involved in the plot and how broad it was. The FBI told federal lawmakers in classified briefings this week they were “stunned” when this judicial officer and lawyers from both sides showed up to read him his rights. Apr 26, 2013 4:55 AM PT

U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli has filed a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court, asking the justices to take and reverse a lower-court ruling that President Barack Obama’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) are unconstitutional, and therefore that no one must follow any orders issued by NLRB.

Questions Raised in Reading of Tsarnaev's Miranda Rights

Breitbart News reported earlier that a U.S. Magistrate, Marianne Bowler, was the official who read Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda rights, advising him, among other rights, that he had the right to remain silent and asking him if he wanted an attorney present before he was asked any more questions. Now it’s being reported that Magistrate Bowler showed up unannounced to read Tsarnaev his rights. Apr 25, 2013 12:08 PM PT

Update: Label Tsarnaev Enemy Combatant for Now, Can Give Bill of Rights Later

Until it is confirmed that Tsarnaev was not part of a foreign terrorist sleeper cell, and that this was only a two-man cell--that there are not more terrorists in this cell they were working with--he should be regarded as a potential threat to national security, and subject to interrogation without the criminal procedural protections of the Bill of Rights, just like any foreign enemy combatant.

For Now, Public-Safety Exception Precludes Bomber's Miranda Rights

As a newly-minted U.S. citizen captured on U.S. soil, Boston terrorist suspect Dzokhar Tsarnaev will get the full range of constitutional protections from the Bill of Rights, as we explained yesterday, except one: Tsarnaev wasn't read his Miranda rights. Apr 20, 2013 4:22 PM PT

Boy Scout Leaders Propose Incoherent Policy on Gay Scouts

A faction in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) just proposed a resolution to change BSA’s longstanding policy regarding openly homosexual behavior, one that will subject them to crippling lawsuits and cannot possibly survive over time. Regardless of where a person stands on the question of whether there should be open and avowed homosexuals in the Boy Scouts, this policy doesn’t make sense either way. Apr 20, 2013 10:25 AM PT

What's Next: Civilian Criminal Trial for Marathon Bombing Suspect

The Obama administration has placed Boston terrorist suspect Dzokhar Tsarnaev in federal custody with plans to give him a civilian criminal trial in U.S. District Court in Massachusetts.

Boston Terrorists Not Right-Wing Americans

We now know the Boston Marathon terrorists were Muslims with roots in Chechnya, the Russian province in an ongoing conflict with Moscow, with a large Muslim population and a history of violent conflict with the Kremlin in a long struggle for independence.
