Freedom is speech is supposedly the law of the land unless you’re anti-Semitic in some states. What’s in the News with stories on FDA is clueless, socialism sucks, device security, stupid cops, and coward cops. And, New Hampshire, It’s Like This Too on a judge ruling federal border patrol checkpoints unconstitutional.

WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES
If you honestly think any promises in any Constitution ever written are worth a damn, you’re going to want to hear this.
South Carolina is poised to be the first state to pass legislation to adopt an Israel-centric definition for “anti-Semitism.” This will then apply to the state’s campuses, potentially limiting discussion of Israel-Palestine to one-sided information that fosters U.S. policies that provide Israel $10 million per day. The bill has been heralded in Israel as “a landmark bill” that will lead change across the U.S. and the world.
WHAT’S IN THE NEWS
NEW HAMPSHIRE, IT’S LIKE THIS TOO
Police dogs used to sniff out drugs at a federal border patrol checkpoint on Interstate 93 last summer amounted to a violation of the New Hampshire state Constitution, a judge ruled, throwing out evidence against 18 defendants.
The American Civil Liberties Union of New Hampshire had challenged the drug charges against 18 people who were arrested after being stopped and searched by Customs and Border Protection agents in the town of Woodstock last year, about 90 miles from the U.S. border.
Federal agents used drug-sniffing dogs to “alert” them of suspicious vehicles, which would be diverted off the road and searched. The ACLU argued that the evidence from the federal checkpoint can’t be used in state prosecutions because the warrantless searches violated the state Constitution.
Plymouth circuit court Judge Thomas Rappa, Jr. agreed.
