Yahoo! Spies for Government

Constitution.com posted an article entitled, “‘Unconstitutional’: Yahoo secretly scanned all incoming emails for US intelligence”.

According to that article:

.

Reuters just reported that the Internet/email company Yahoo Inc. created a custom software program to search all of its customers’ incoming emails to comply with a ‘classified government directive.’

“[Yahoo!] complied with a classified U.S. government demand, scanning hundreds of millions of Yahoo Mail accounts at the behest of the National Security Agency or FBI, said three former employees and a fourth person apprised of the events.”

.

A lot of people, myself included, are infuriated by Yahoo!’s betrayal of American privacy.  A lot of former Yahoo! email customers are changing to other email providers that offer “end-to-end encryption” and other technological devices that guarantee government can’t read their emails.

I’m not joining them.  I’ve had the same Yahoo! email account (alfredadask@yahoo.com) for most of 13 years and I don’t plan to change anytime soon.  After all, I really don’t have anything to hide (except the detonators, of course), so I’m not enraged by Yahoo!’s spying–in fact, I like it.

Attached is a 35-minute audio recording of a very insightful confrontation between a woman who appears to be an IRS attorney and/or prosecutor, and Marc Stevens who is assisting someone threatened with trial by the IRS.

This is too good to be ignored.  If you’re interested in the IRS you must listen–probably more than once.

Certification of “Foreign Law” vs. Verification


Seal of the Supreme Court of the United States

In A.D. 1804, in the case of Church vs. Hubbart, the Supreme Court of the United States dealt with an issue of recognizing “foreign law” (of Portugal) and laid down some principles concerning what constitutes proper evidence of “foreign law”.  Unsworn certification” of foreign law was not enough.  For a foreign law to introduced as evidence, somebody had to verify its validity under oath.

“Frivolous” Study Guide


The Clown and the tightrope walker, Painter:He...

This is another of my “study guides”.  It’s not an “article” in the sense that it has a beginning, middle and end.  It doesn’t start with a proposition and offer evidence to prove that proposition.

It’s an exploration of some relevant information (including Supreme Court cases) concerning the meaning of the word “frivolous”.

The word “frivolous” is important because the courts routinely and summarily dismiss claims and arguments (especially by litigants appearing without attorneys) as “frivolous”.  Such dismissals are often incomprehensible to the litigant because he does not understand the meaning of “frivolous” and no judge or attorney is likely to offer an explanation.

This study guide simply offers about 7,000 words worth of research into the meaning of “frivolous”.  This study guide does not arrive at a definitive meaning for “frivolous,” but it does expand our understanding enough where we may be able to prevent the courts from subjecting us to summary dismissals for being “frivolous”.
