I want to preface this thread with another from a few month back which will show just how far left the ACLU has finally gone and how it can never come back and, to be honest, is extremely anti-American.

Link to ATSNN

They complained about the use of the word "America" in the State of the Union Address.




onight, President Trump said the word ‘America’ more than 80 times in his speech. Yet, after a divisive first year, we hear and feel how exclusionary that ‘America’ is, with policies that have harmed so many vulnerable American communities. The ACLU stands ready to protect these communities, both in the courts and at the polls.

In particular, the immigration plan put forth by Trump would hold Dreamers hostage to his demands for a harmful border wall and an even larger mass deportation force. We are at this crossroads because of the President’s deeply destructive ideas fomented by his nativist allies and divisive rhetoric. We will continue to stand up for these young immigrants and ensure they continue to contribute to our country. We cannot let America’s Dreamers be deported.


When we are just leaving an age of where a POTUS refers to himself more than his country in multple speeches...how can being 'American' be bad in the eyes on anyone? Especially a group who states on thier own website...

Look at their website...

www.aclu.org...

They are another 'weaponized' organization being used against the core foundation of America.



For almost 100 years, the ACLU has worked to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States.


So, the president does not belong to the group above?

This leads me to the current issue. The ACLU celebrating the raid on Cohen, Trumps lawyer. The scary part is there is no way to know if they, the investigators, are doing this correctly. Please read below.

Earlier this week, the FBI raided attorney Michael Cohen’s office, apartment, and hotel room, seizing materials that included communications from Trump to his lawyer. The government typically cannot have access to those communications. In cases where it is necessary to study such communications, the FBI establishes a supposedly independent “taint team” that sifts through the material and, theoretically, only passes on evidence to prosecutors that does not violate attorney-client privilege. However, critics allege that there is great potential for abuse, especially in a politically-charged case like this. They point out that such raids on attorneys are very rare, and argue that the president’s Fourth Amendment right to privacy, Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, and Sixth Amendment right to counsel have been compromised.


There is no real oversight that I can see. Now, you also know that it is REALLY BAD when Alan Dershowitz chimes in for Trump.




Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz, one of the country’s foremost defense lawyers and a civil libertarian who supported Hillary Clinton for president, condemned the raid. “If this were Hillary Clinton being investigated and they went into her lawyer’s office, the ACLU would be on every television station in America jumping up and down,” he told Fox News this week.


The ACLU had a response that you can read in the link but this is what they are using...the investigators and the reason the ACLU is not saying anything...




The attorney-client privilege has always included a “crime-fraud exception,” which provides that if you are using the attorney-client relationship to perpetrate a crime, there is no privilege.


What crime? A payout to a porno star? A payout to an old Trump doorman? Private transactions? Taxi Medallions?

Remember this....

“Yes they did, Brooke.” Perez responded. “As he mentioned, there were 13 mobile devices and 5 iPads that the FBI said that in some way were used with her private email server, and they did in some cases just destroy them with hammers when they were done using them.” The FBI on Friday released a detailed report on its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of State. The report included notes on the agency’s three-hour interview with Clinton.


Keep firing away and cleaning up that swamp Mr. President....

However, there was no crime committed.

This is what happens when your investigation turns up nothing: you start pulling out all the stops in order to get anything to prove you haven't just wasted a ton of taxpayer money on a wild goose chase.

Next, the (always known it has been) left leaning ACLU that only cares when the left is being targeted by anything.

The American Communist Legal Union has nothing to do with protecting your rights.

Their agenda is to destroy the United States and the principals for which it stands.

It was founded by Communists which is WHY they are dedicated to the destruction of it's values.

The ACLU is nothing more than a communist front masquerading as an advocate of human rights...


Illuminists established the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to destroy Christianity and to promote other goals of the illuministic New World Order in the courts. In 1920, Roger Baldwin, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn (Communist Party official), William Z. (head of the United States Communist Party), Felix Frankfurter, Amos Pinchot, (Skull and Bones member, active supporter of the Bolsheviks), Upton Sinclair, Dr. Harry F. Ward (Communist, Union Theological Seminary), Norman Thomas (a socialist), and others founded the American Civil Liberties Union. It was formed from the merger of several organizations developed during World War I whose members included Communists, German agents, pacifists, radicals, socialists, and assorted other left-wingers.

Its primary purpose was, and continues to be, to promote Illuminism by protecting Communists, anarchists, and other political radicals and libertines. It provides attorneys for radical criminals and agitators. By bringing lawsuits before favorable judges to set precedence, it advances Illuminism. It has advanced the cause of Communism while seeking to suppress Christianity and route every vestige of it from public life. Communism is the goal. Such are the goals of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Other Illuministic Organizations

One of the great myths of the 20th – and now 21st – century is the belief that the American Civil Liberties Union was an organization that had a noble beginning, but somehow strayed off course. That myth is untrue. The ACLU set a course to destroy America – her freedom and her values – right from the start.

From its very beginning, the ACLU had strong socialist and communist ties. As early as 1931, the U.S. Congress was alarmed by the ACLU’s devotion to communism. A report by the Special House Committee to Investigate Communist Activities stated

The American Civil Liberties Union is closely affiliated with the communist movement in the United States, and fully 90 percent of its efforts are on behalf of communists who have come into conflict with the law.

The ACLU's shocking legacy

The origins of the American Civil Liberties Union are deeply entangled with Communism. Not the idealistic “liberals in a hurry” stuff of fellow-travelling fairy tale, but the bloody-minded sedition and revolutionary terror of hard historical reality.

ACLU founder Roger Baldwin’s radicalism caught the eye of the FBI, which quoted him in a 1924 report as having said: “The right to advocate a violent revolution, assassination, and proletarian Red guard, are all clearly within scope of free speech …” The ACLU founder traveled to Stalin’s Russia in 1927 and wrote a book titled “Liberty Under The Soviets” the following year, which defended the Lenin’s and Stalin’s repression of dissent because they “are weapons in the transition to socialism.”

Like how the NAACP said that people should not use the word 'colored' to describe black people?

It's a tired cliche but becomes fresh again with that kind of see-through hypocrisy: You really can't make this stuff up.

Another Org manned by the puppets of the global crime syndicate.

They are trying to say by this that using the blanket statement "america" when used by left or right is excluding and devisive by the power using it to isolate. Opponents. They are trying to keep a fair society.

Yes.

It took me a long time to understand what the ACLU is really about.

Basically, it's about Constitutional Rights -- no matter who you are.

Like defending free speech for the KKK.

Wow, thanks for that; I had to bookmark that site you referenced. Best insight to the "Illuminists" I've ever seen.
The seeds of the destruction of the US were planted long ago and have yielded a near all encompassing vine of death and deceit. Powerful stuff that!

Again, thanks!

How is taking sides keeping it fair? That is what they are doing. I understand where you are coming from but do not agree in the least.

The State of the Union is not partisan and never should be and the one I watched this year was not. Past years...well...different story.
