U.S. Supreme Court Says No License Necessary To Drive Automobile On Public Roads

Yes, the U.S. Supreme Court says no license is necessary to drive an automobile on public highways and roads.

U.S. SUPREME COURT AND OTHER HIGH COURT CITATIONS PROVING THAT NO LICENSE IS NECESSARY FOR NORMAL USE OF AN AUTOMOBILE ON COMMON WAYS

“The right of a citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, by horsedrawn carriage, wagon, or automobile, is not a mere privilege which may be permitted or prohibited at will, but a common right which he has under his right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Under this constitutional guaranty one may, therefore, under normal conditions, travel at his inclination along the public highways or in public places, and while conducting himself in an orderly and decent manner, neither interfering with nor disturbing another’s rights, he will be protected, not only in his person, but in his safe conduct.”

Thompson v.Smith, 154 SE 579, 11 American Jurisprudence, Constitutional Law, section 329, page 1135 “The right of the Citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, in the ordinary course of life and business, is a common right which he has under the right to enjoy life and liberty, to acquire and possess property, and to pursue happiness and safety. It includes the right, in so doing, to use the ordinary and usual conveyances of the day, and under the existing modes of travel, includes the right to drive a horse drawn carriage or wagon thereon or to operate an automobile thereon, for the usual and ordinary purpose of life and business.” –

Caneisha Mills v. D.C. 2009 “The use of the automobile as a necessary adjunct to the earning of a livelihood in modern life requires us in the interest of realism to conclude that the RIGHT to use an automobile on the public highways partakes of the nature of a liberty within the meaning of the Constitutional guarantees. . .”

They have an equal right with other vehicles in common use to occupy the streets and roads.

Darknet Vendors and Buyers Switching to Decentralized Trading Solutions – Deep Dot Web

A recent report issued by Digital Shadows claims that darknet vendors and buyers are increasingly moving away from the use of centralized darknet markets, like Dream Market and Wall Street Market, and moving to decentralized marketplaces.

 

Digital Shadows is an organization which monitors and reports on the darknet, the clearnet, and the deep web. In the new 15 page report, Digital Shadows claims that current centralized darknet markets such as Dream Market and Olympus have not met the demand that the former darknet market AlphaBay filled. Some cyber criminals have begun using blockchain technology to host their markets, such as the sites known as Joker’s Stash and The Money Team. Others have switched to using the decentralized markets on OpenBazaar.

The adoption of the decentralized marketplace OpenBazaar is slowly growing, but in their new report Digital Shadows claims OpenBazaar has grown by four thousand users in just the last four months alone. Digital Shadows believe that adoption of OpenBazaar is still just in its infancy. The report by Digital Shadows also states that cyber criminals are beginning to use chat programs such as Telegram and even Discord. Over the past six months researchers with Digital Shadows observed over five thousand Telegram links shared on various darknet forums and sites. Of the 5,000 shared Telegram links the researchers observed, 1,667 of those links were invitations to new forums. During the past six months the researchers with Digital Shadows also observed 743 invite links on Discord that were shared on various darknet forums and sites. The researchers from Digital Shadows reported that they believe the continuing trend of a movement away from centralized darknet marketplaces is a trend which began prior to the law enforcement investigation into AlphaBay and HANSA, known as Operation Bayonet.

According to the researchers from Digital Shadows, darknet vendors and buyers have already begun to abandon centralized darknet markets in favor of looking for alternative solutions to trading anonymously. In their report, the researchers stated that they believe that the law enforcement operation which shutdown AlphaBay and HANSA market “strengthened calls for new technologies and processes, including increasing security and anonymity through the direct peer-to-peer (P2P) communication already favored on more specialized forums, or enforcing more stringent vetting procedures for new members. Some even entertained ideas of a more radical, fully-decentralized marketplace model, manifested in sites such as OpenBazaar.”

In 2016 the hacker group known as The Shadow Brokers offered leaked NSA cyber warfare software for sale on a site hosted on the decentralized network ZeroNet. Decentralized solutions are also becoming popular with fraud and carding sites. In January 2016, the site known as The Money Team created a site which used a dot bazar domain name, which uses a decentralized and blockchain based Domain Name System (DNS). These decentralized and blockchain based domain names such as .bazar can be accessed using a browser add-on. One such decentralized blockchain DNS service is Blockchain-DNS, or BDNS, which can access domains such as .bazar, .bit, .coin, .emc, .lib, as well as other domain name extensions used by OpenNIC. Some of these domain name extensions are created using Emercoin or Namecoin.

The report also mentions Tralfamadore, a decentralized darknet market which operates on the Ethereum blockchain. With Tralfamadore, the market does not just use the blockchain for domain name registration and DNS services, it stores the entire market on the blockchain. Transactions between users on Tralfamadore utilize smart contracts. However, the researchers with Digital Shadows note that the decentralized Tralfamadore market has so far failed to attract a large user base. The report also notes that vendors and buyers aren’t just using chat channels on Telegram and Discord, but also IRC, Jabber, and Skype. The lingering and repeated concerns that the remaining centralized darknet markets could be infiltrated by law enforcement could help push even more vendors and use to switch to a decentralized marketplace. Technologies which enable decentralized marketplaces are likely to make it even more difficult for governments to shut down the free trading of goods and services on the darknet.

Complete List of BANKS Owned or Controlled by the Rothschild Family | Humans Are Free

Virtually unknown to the general public is the fact that the US Federal Reserve is a privately owned company, siting on its very own patch of land, immune to the US laws…

This privately owned company (controlled by the Rothschilds, Rockefellers and Morgans) prints the money FOR the US Government, which pays them interest for the “favor.” This means that if we would reset the nation’s debt today and would begin reprinting money, we would be in debt to the FED from the very first dollar loaned to our Government.

Also, most people living in the USA have no clue that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is a foreign agency.

To be more accurate, the IRS is a foreign private corporation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and is the private “army” of the Federal Reserve (Fed).

Its main goal is to make sure the American people pay their tax and be good little slaves.

Minnesota cops ordered paramedics to inject suspects with ‘rape drug’ – report — RT US News

Police in Minneapolis, Minnesota, have been ordered to “never suggest or demand” that paramedics use powerful horse tranquilizers on suspects, following a report that the practice had spiked in recent years.

The new policy order comes after a report by the city’s Office of Police Conduct Review found that paramedics had used ketamine on suspects during police calls 62 times in 2017, up from just three times in 2012. In some cases, emergency personnel injected the tranquilizer into suspects who were already restrained, causing heart and breathing failure and requiring the suspects to be medically revived, reported the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

“Our policy should be clear,” said Mayor Jacob Frey. “Cops shouldn’t direct medical professionals on health-related issues, and medical professionals shouldn’t listen to them.”

Two local healthcare officials, Jeffrey Ho and Jon Cole, criticized the report for its “reckless use of anecdotes…to draw uninformed and incorrect conclusions.” In a statement, they argued in favor of sedation, claiming that it is sometimes necessary to avoid “allowing people to exhaust themselves to death.”

Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo did not comment on the specifics of the report, but credited it for helping his department clarify how it should interact with paramedics. Minneapolis police previously had no policy on administering ketamine.

Ketamine is an anesthetic agent commonly used to sedate animals for surgery. It is also popular among recreational drug users, who snort it to achieve euphoria or amplify the effects of other drugs, such as ecstasy. Dizziness and memory loss are common side-effects of ketamine use, making it a popular choice of ‘date-rape’ drug for sexual predators.

Users who take too much ketamine can find themselves in a ‘K-hole’, a temporary state of dissociation, delirium, and loss of motor function.

In one case highlighted in the report, police and paramedics responded to a 911 call about a man suffering what appeared to be a mental breakdown. Body camera footage showed that paramedics injected the man twice with ketamine, after which he became limp and unintelligible.

“He just hit the K-hole” remarked one officer.

As the man regained consciousness, paramedics injected him again at the officer’s request. The suspect lost consciousness and stopped breathing on the way to the hospital, and was revived shortly afterwards.

While Minneapolis police have changed their policy as a result of the report, local healthcare officer Kelly Spratt told the Star Tribune that the cases highlighted in the report showed no wrongdoing by police or paramedics.

“We have reviewed the four cases mentioned in the draft report that involve use of ketamine…and have concluded that those met the protocol and were medically justified,” she said.

One Woman Who Knew Her Rights Forced Border Patrol Off a Greyhound Bus | American Civil Liberties Union

On June 7, Tiana Smalls, whose Facebook profile describes her as owner of Fire Flower Beauty Company, was riding a Greyhound bus from Bakersfield, California to Las Vegas, Nevada. As the bus approached an agricultural checkpoint at the Nevada state line, Ms. Smalls said …

the driver made an unusual announcement:

“We are being boarded by Border Patrol. Please be prepared to show your documentation upon request.”

Ms. Smalls immediately reacted. According to a description she posted on Facebook, she stood up and loudly said,

“This is a violation of your Fourth Amendment rights. You don’t have to show them *shit*!!!”

She then used Google Translate to repeat her message in Spanish, reassuring the Spanish-speaking woman sitting beside her and probably countless other fellow passengers. Border Patrol agents boarded the bus and started to ask the passengers for their “documentation.” Ms. Smalls stood up again and shouted,

“You have NO RIGHT to ask me for anything! This is harassment and racial profiling! We are not within 100 miles of a border so [these agents] have no legal right or jurisdiction here!”

Ms. Smalls’ simple and courageous act of resistance was enough. The Border Patrol agents, realizing that they would face an uphill battle, immediately retreated, telling the driver to continue on.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials claim sweeping authority to operate in the interior of the United States. Their basis for doing so is a federal statute that purports to allow CBP officers to undertake certain enforcement activities without a warrant “within a reasonable distance from any external boundary of the United States.” A federal regulation adopted in 1953 inexplicably defines a “reasonable distance” as up to 100 air miles from any external boundary of the United States — an area that sweeps up nearly two-thirds of the U.S. population (200 million people), nine of our 10 largest cities, and several entire states (including Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, and New Jersey). And still CBP cheats its way to more interior encroachment, for example, by claiming that the Great Lakes shared with Canada are “functional equivalents of the border” so that all of Michigan and Chicago are in its reach.

Tell Greyhound to stop letting Border Patrol violate its passengers’ rights! CBP often overlooks basic civics in making this power grab, however. No act of Congress can authorize a violation of the Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land. In general, the Fourth Amendment allows law enforcement to enter business areas that are open to the public. In nonpublic areas, however, law enforcement officers must have a warrant, consent, or “exigent circumstances” for their entry to be constitutional. Because you need a ticket to board a Greyhound bus, these are nonpublic areas.

In a recent letter to Greyhound’s general counsel, the ACLU explained that Greyhound is not obligated to consent to the Border Patrol’s warrantless and unjustified raids on its buses.

Since Trump took office, CBP activity far from our actual borders has increased significantly. ACLU affiliates in Washington, California, Arizona, Michigan, New York, Vermont, and Florida have reported multiple incidents involving Border Patrol agents boarding Greyhound buses without a warrant or consent, and terrorizing passengers by demanding their papers. These reports indicate that Border Patrol agents routinely engage in racial and ethnic profiling, singling people out for the color of their skin or accents.

We live in dark times. Many people want to stand up for their own rights and the rights of others, but feel unsure about how. Ms. Smalls’ experience, like that of two brave women in Montana last month, teaches us that sometimes knowing one’s rights and speaking out with confidence delivers truth to abusive power. Understandably, many people feel intimidated in the presence of law enforcement officials, including federal immigration agents. Here are some effective ways to stand up for what’s right.

Know your rights.

Familiarize yourself with your rights when encountering immigration officials and other law enforcement. And then teach your friends and family what you’ve learned, so they know their rights too!

Practice.

Find a friend and role play with each other, taking turns acting out the “bad cop” role. It may sound silly, but practicing what you would say out loud in a safe environment can help you feel more empowered when confronting law enforcement officials who are abusing their authority and violating your constitutional rights.

Consider recording encounters.

The First Amendment protects the right to record and monitor law enforcement officials engaged in the public discharge of their official duties as long as you don’t interfere with the law enforcement activity itself during your recording. You can use your cell phone’s camera or download an app designed especially for this purpose, like the ACLU of Texas’s new “MigraCam.”

Be safe.

Ms. Smalls’ behaviour is a great example of how a little resistance can go a long way. Never lie to federal officers. Be careful not to physically interfere with or otherwise obstruct law enforcement officers because doing so may lead to your arrest. If you are questioned, remember you can always exercise your right to remain silent.

Tell the ACLU if you’ve witnessed Border Patrol or CBP officials violating constitutional rights. They want to know. You can contact the ACLU’s Border Litigation Project here.

  • Famous Quotes In History

    "I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology....Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated."
    -- Bertrand Russell in The Impact of Science on Society  
     
    “Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.”
    – Julius Caesar
