What Does the Supreme Court’s Cell Phone Privacy Ruling Say About NSA Surveillance?, today at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET)

Today we’ll discuss the Supreme Court’s ruling in Riley v. California (joined with United States v. Wurie), in which the Court held that a government agent may not peruse the data held on a cell phone as part of a warrantless “search incident to arrest.” In order to search data on a cell phone, the government agent would need either to get a warrant, or to search pursuant to another exception to the warrant requirement (e.g., exigent circumstances). We’ll discuss the ruling itself and also its possible implications for the cases on which I have my primary focus: those challenging the NSA’s bulk metadata collection program.

We’ll also discuss a lot more–see Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., we plan to discuss.

Inspiration vs. Indoctrination, Today at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET)

Today’s show title was inspired (pun intended) by the juxtaposition of two stories about the future of education in the United States. One story is about a new startup that aims to inspire grade school children to love and learn about science. The other is about a White House official who, after considering the system of educational indoctrination in China, concluded that, even in the United States, “high schools probably have a significant ability to move students toward what they consider ‘a correct worldview, a correct view on life, and a correct value system.'”

But, as we’ll see, the theme can be carried beyond the realm of education, to Obama’s use of his “pen and a phone,” to his characterization of Obamacare, to Islam and other totalitarian religions, and more. This dichotomy might even help explain the success of non-liberal talk radio!

See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., we plan to discuss in today’s show.

Dude! A Pro-American Administration Is, Like, So Three Decades Ago!

Today we can’t resist talking about the Obama Administration lackey who called Brett Baier “Dude” on Fox News yesterday. It’s a perfect encapsulation of the Obama Administration: Its conviction that it has the media in its pocket, its contempt for the American people, its lack of decorum, its refusal to be held accountable—both for its failure to do its job, and for its insistence on doing a whole bunch of things that aren’t its job. A number of the stories we will discuss today touch on this theme, but there’s a lot more as you’ll see in the program notes, below.
