It seems I must post and since I hold the honor I will share something I was turned on to in "The Breakfast Club".
The case, Wood v. Moss, reached the Supreme Court after the Obama administration appealed from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which ruled in 2012 that the demonstrators’ claims met certain legal standards and should therefore proceed to trial.But that's not all it seems the Democratic administration believes that it is all well and good to silence the critics.
The administration has sought to prevent the case from going to trial, and so the question before the Supreme Court is whether the plaintiffs’ claims are sufficiently “plausible” to advance past the government’s request for the court to throw the case out entirely.
The Obama administration, however, is arguing that the decision to quarantine the anti-Bush protesters was necessary as a measure of “national security,” implying that peaceful anti-Bush demonstrators might have hurled a bomb or otherwise threatened the president’s life.And we continue
The Obama administration claimed that since “a legitimate security rationale is likely to be in every case,” and since “the Court has recognized that it is valid at times to take into account the nature of one’s speech in making arrests and other security situations,” the Secret Service would be acting within the confines of the US Constitution even if it acted without any degree of suspicion or probable cause.
In other words, the Obama administration asserts that the government can arrest or sequester protesters without probable cause on the grounds that they pose a hypothetical threat to the safety of the president entirely because of their political viewpoint. Such a rationale is a blatant violation of the First and Fourth Amendments and is entirely compatible with police state dictatorship. This pseudo-legal position is the negation of freedom of speech and political expression
