THE SUPREME COURT WRONGLY DECIDES MURTHY V. MISSOURI Written By: Glen Allen, Esq. As an advocate for a robust First Amendment on free speech issues, I approach many (not all) of the U. S.

Dismantling Jeffersonian Democracy and Corrupting the Rule of Law

The January 6 Defendant Seditious Conspiracy Trials Written by Glen K. Allen, Esq I am old enough to recall when a person in good faith could contend that the American political experiment contains vital elements of Jeffersonian democracy.
