Baltimore police use secret technology to track cellphones with FBI involvement

Share

by Brad Matthews | Watchdog Arena

 

Baltimore police have been using an invasive device known as a “stingray” to track cellphones thousands of times in recent years. They have collected and withheld this information from courts at the behest of the FBI, according to the Baltimore Sun.

The stingray device mimics a cellphone tower, tricking devices into connecting with it. These forced connections allow the operators of the stingray to obtain information unique to the cellphone for tracking purposes.

The police, who try to keep the device under wraps, officially use it to track stolen phones or to find people. The devices can also be

Yet another area of unjustified government takeover: the Internet

Share

by PATRICK GARRY, RA ANALYST with Renew America

An article I wrote twenty years ago described the Internet as America’s next frontier. And for the past twenty years, it has been a wide-open, innovative, constantly changing – and yes, somewhat unruly – frontier. But all that may have changed with the Federal Communication Commission’s recent announcement that it will now treat the Internet as a public utility, regulated under the same laws that once governed the Ma Bell telephone monopoly.

This dramatic change in the government’s regulatory oversight of the Internet is the most extreme expression of the “net neutrality” movement. In basic principle, net neutrality is a concept that commands near universal agreement. Net neutrality refers to an open Internet, free of discrimination

Dark Money part 6 – May the many choose to be one?

Part 6 of 6 in the series A License to Speak: The Dark Money Deception

by Jon Cassidy, Watchdog.org

AP Photo/Tribune Review, Sidney Davis

SPEECH AND MONEY: There is “only one legitimate governmental interest for restricting campaign finances,” Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas wrote, and that is “preventing corruption or the appearance of corruption.”

Campaign finance regulation has always been a threat to free speech. Dark money regulation is a different kind of danger.

For the zealots, ridding the world of dark money means sunlight and transparency, a block on billionaires buying elections in secret and hijacking our democratic system of government.

But if the dark money regulators are successful their victory will mean robust public debate only for those who

Dark Money part 5 – Insiders craft speech rules to trap outsiders

OUTSIDER: Michael Quinn Sullivan, left, president and CEO of Empower Texans, is fighting state campaign reporting rules that target his organization. He is seen in this photo with Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

The Texas Ethics Commission recently approved new political speech regulations aimed at “dark money.”

The commission and the media have presented the new rules as a corrective by sensible moderates forcing shady political extremists to operate in the light of day. Really, it’s just a classic struggle between a political insider and an outsider.

The insider is Joe Straus, speaker of the Texas House. The

Dispute with neighbor leads to confiscation

by WND

In an incident that is being repeated all across the country far more frequently than is reported, a retired Navy veteran in Glendale, Arizona, has had his gun collection confiscated by authorities after an irate neighbor filed a harassment order.

Rick Bailey, 56, is a disabled retired software-systems engineer who has slowly accrued a collection of 28 firearms, with an estimated worth of about $25,000. The collection was seized after a neighbor claimed Bailey threatened to shoot him, an accusation Bailey calls “bullsh-t.”

The dispute between the neighbors started several months ago regarding dump trucks used in a landscaping business. Bailey said his neighbor would park two “large, smelly” dump trucks in the small cul-de-sac

Dark Money part 4 – Politicians ‘disinfect’ citizenry with dark money rules

by Jon Cassidy, Watchdog.org

STIFLING: Texas Election lawyer Trey Trainor says governments can use election laws to ” intimidate people into not speaking,” says Trey Trainor, a Texas elections lawyer.

 

“Sunlight,” Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis once wrote, “is said to be the best of disinfectants.”

You’ll find the quote in the first sentence of the latest federal appeals court ruling on political speech, like many before it. The Supreme Court has said that it is politicians who need disinfecting. The danger of quid pro quo corruption – money for votes – is serious enough that the court has approved laws requiring politicians and

CAUGHT IN THE FLOOD: Diana Hsieh is just one person caught up in the rising tide of campaign regulations.

Never in a million years did Diana Hsieh think she could be fined by the state of Colorado for a political Facebook post.

However Orwellian that sounds, had Hsieh posted in Texas she wouldn’t have faced a fine but a felony conviction. In casting their regulatory nets across the country in an attempt to capture “dark money” and blunt the political influence of billionaires, legislatures and regulatory agencies are ensnaring ordinary citizens.

Kick Open the Doorway to Liberty: What Are We Waiting For?

By John W. Whitehead

“The greatness of America lies in the right to protest for right.”—Martin Luther King Jr.

Everything this nation once stood for is being turned on its head.

Free speech, religious expression, privacy, due process, bodily integrity, the sanctity of human life, the sovereignty of the family, individuality, the right to self-defense, protection against police abuses, representative government, private property, human rights—the very ideals that once made this nation great—have become casualties of a politically correct, misguided, materialistic, amoral, militaristic culture.

Indeed, I’m having a hard time reconciling the America I know and love with the America being depicted in the daily news headlines, where corruption, cronyism and abuse have taken precedence over the rights of
