Judge Reaffirms Constitution Free Zones 100 Miles Inside U.S. Borders

"District Judge Edward Korman, a US federal judge, has reaffirmed an Obama administration policy granting officials the authority to search Americans’ laptops, citing a controversial premise that makes citizens within 100 miles of the border eligible for a police check."

Just Plain Absurd

First off, it's completely unconstitutional for a judge to rule the constitution invalid for ANY amount of distance from the border.

Second, if they think this is somehow constitutional then doesn't that mean judges also have the power to extend the zone to the entire country?

Slaughts31's picture

these zones are hilariously wide

Seems so extreme.

I do not live in a warzone. (edit: though they do discover border tunnels pretty routinely; not sure how long they usually are though)

(link isn't working for me...so I just checked out http://www.theminorityreportblog.com/ instead)

"Hilariously Wide"???

Once you give a judge the power to nullify the constitution for even 1 centimeter then it's just a matter of time before it expands to the whole country - camel's nose under the tent. TPTB are seeing what we'll accept and they'll obviously push forward as much as they can. When the public finally gets outraged, TPTB can say "why are you outraged? This has been the policy for a while now".

There's a saying that the level of tyranny a society will get is the exact level that they're willing to stand for.

This is good. Constitution

This is good. Constitution Free means No Fed Govt since the Constitution is what created the Fed Govt. Constitution Free = No Fed Govt = No Fed Agent with "authority" over you. Make the entire US Constitution Free.

Debunk the ACLU's messaging

I don't agree with the judge's ruling but the ACLU is playing a dangerous word game when it declares the 100 mile DHS border search zone a ‘Constitution Free’ zone.
A 'Constitution Free' zone would be a zone without any law making it anarchy. These zones have extraordinary laws so aren't anarchic but tyrannical.
The ACLU chose the wrong word on purpose in order to advance the idea that our rights are granted by the Constitution - and we all know that is FALSE!
Remember, the Bill of Rights grants us NOTHING - we have these rights by the fact of our birth. The sole purpose of the Bill of Rights is to prevent the government from infringing on our natural rights.
One of the biggest problems with our society today is that we don't understand what our natural rights are and that we enjoy such rights because we are born free. Only slaves are born under limitations and with impediments.
Any country can suspend its Constitution, our politicians have been ripping up the Constutution for over a century and no one cares, but no government has the right to deprive a sovereign individual of his/her God-given, natural rights. Constitution free zones means nothing to the masses, but call it tyranny and we'd see a lot more raised eyebrows and perhaps more action.
Make it a habit of correctly using the true term, not the ACLU's, and call these zones what they really are – Tyranny Zones.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
James Madison

"We need to correct the ACLU"

and not lend credibility that these are Tyranny Zones, but enforce the fact that no government has the right to deprive a sovereign individual of his/her God-given, natural rights.

Just about everything the feds do is unconstitutional.

Mark Levin is correct when he says the whole federal government is unconstitutional. It is.
The job of the executive branch is to keep aliens out. If they get in, due process must prevail. Failure of duty on their part does not constitute forfeiture of rights on my part.

When federal judges have contempt

Make politicians and judges

obey their Oath and remove any and all immunity that is granted to them by any Legislation.

And yes, if the Constitution needs to be amended to make this happen, then I vote yes.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

The problem solves it's self.

The wider the gap between the haves and the have nots, the closer we approach to a tipping point. I don't think anyone on the DP believes our current financial course is sustainable, the borrowing and money printing have their mathematical limits. Math is math.

The only thing about the impending shakeup ahead is whether the solution the country chooses is liberty or communism. History is not the strong suit of most Americans, that's for sure. I think more collectivism will come, before liberty eventually wins out.

Then for a while liberty will reign, and the spoiled generations that follow will slide back into collectivism again. It is the natural cycle of things.

We need to make a new and

unequivocal statement on the rights of individuals. A new "shot heard 'round the world". I prefer our style of r3volution to the French model. Do you think our politicians are bright enough to get the message?

I think our politicians will START to get the idea IF we mailed

a Million dead fish wrapped in newspaper to their DC and local offices. But it needs to be followed up with something better/stronger. I heard one time the French mailed packages of spent shell casings to their politicians. I've heard of others mailing them ropes. Would it really matter? Maybe. One thing is for sure, they will not voluntarily give up ANY power!

The best thing to probably do is to shame and embarrass them in public (not hard to do) and put it on the internet. We need more people with cameras and more courage! It's the only thing that's worked for me.

Well, I have ideas, but

its hard to get anything done when half the population depends on the government.

Most of these people

are happy on their knees, or bent over; they like what they are used to.
