Supreme Court Rules Against Fourth Amendment

As the Democrats in Congress methodically plot against the Second Amendment, the Supreme Court works in unison against the Fourth Amendment. On January 14, the Court ruled that evidence obtained through illegal searches may be used to prosecute criminal defendants.

According to Mark Sherman of the Associated Press, the justices split 5-4 along “ideological lines.” In other words, the ideology of the majority of the Supreme Court is apparently arrayed against the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Chief Justice John Roberts, Justices Samuel Alito, Anthony Kennedy, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas rule against the exclusionary rule, which requires evidence to be suppressed if it results from a violation of a suspect’s Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable searches or seizure.

I haven't read the text of the majority opinion, but there have

been growing efforts to gut the effect of the 4th Amendment, and the judicially adopted exclusionary rule, ever since Weeks v. United States, 232 U.S. 383 (1914), although the rule is generally regarded as having its beginnings in an 1886 case (Boyd v US). It leaves one to wonder what reaction might be expected from James Otis, Jr. (called by many the "flame" who lit the fire of the american revolution and indeed as the real father of the revolution), were he alive to render an opinion.

If we pause to recall the history for the formation, and later adoption, of the 4th amendment, it's useful to examine the 5 hour oration of James Otis who argued before the Superior Court of Massachusetts in 1761, against the use of Writs of Assistance that were then used by customs officials as some kind of legal basis to break into any building in search of untaxed articles. John Adams, who witnessed Otis' argument against those Writs of Assistance, concluded that "Then and there, the child Independence was born".

BTW, the 4th Amendment refers to the right of the "people", not specifically to the rights of a "suspect".

America is dead.

I think it's time to look seriously at other political options. This is a tyrannical empire that tightens its grip on the populace more every day.

So it's called a "republic"...big deal. So was the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

I think it is "time" as well

Gerald Celente predicted the formation of a solid third party out of this turmoil, I hope he is right.

Without a Third Party,

Without a Third Party, nothing can happen working within the system. I'm not sure it isn't too late to work within the system, however.
