“Can A Full Court (in support of) Press Save Rational Discourse?” TODAY at 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT)

The Supreme Court reached an important unanimous ruling, reaffirming that there is no “hate speech” exception to the First Amendment. Might this ruling help save rational discourse in our country? This and more on today’s show. See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., I plan to discuss.

“Is Ted Cruz Still ‘The Guy’?” Tonight at 11 p.m. ET (8 p.m. PT)

In September 2013, after hearing Ted Cruz’s “filibuster” on Obamacare, in which he exhorted everyone to read Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged, I did a show on BlogTalk Radio, asking “Is Ted Cruz ‘The Guy’?” The answer: yes, based on everything we knew at the time, it seemed so.

Now, with Cruz vowing to make same-sex marriage a central issue of his Presidential campaign, as well as proposing a Constitutional amendment that would make Supreme Court tenures subject to retention elections, is Cruz a candidate who still deserves our support?

This and more on tonight’s show. See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., I plan to discuss.

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.
