The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has admitted to intentionally targeting conservative groups since at least 2011.
It has admitted that it searched tax applications for words like “Tea Party” and even “patriot.” Once it found those groups, it made intrusive and unconstitutional inquiries, demanding answers “upon penalty of perjury.”

"What?" you say. "I thought Americans already had the right to speak freely on public sidewalks." So...
In the 1958 horror movie, "The Blob," a growing reddish blob from outer space devours everyone it touches. Echoing that film, a panel of judges of a federal appeals court ruled that the campus of the University of Alabama, home of the Crimson Tide, devours the speech rights of those on the...
