Two recent books maintain that civil liberties have dramatically</p><p>eroded here in recent years. ACLU president Susan Herman argues that our constitutional</p><p>system of checks and balances is breaking down because of exaggerated claims of</p><p>presidential power in our war against al Qaeda terrorists. That shift in power has made it</p><p>difficult for the courts to fully examine whether certain policies are constitutional. Pulitzer Prize-</p><p>winning author David Shipler does not dispute the erosion of liberty since the 9/11 attacks, but</p><p>he says the Bill of Rights has also deteriorated because of the war on drugs. His book relates</p><p>numerous stories of searches without warrants, punishments without due process, and other</p><p>unreasonable procedures. In criminal justice as in counterterrorism, Shipler argues, the</p><p>executive branch has grabbed immense power and distorted the process of determining guilt</p><p>or innocence. Join us for a discussion of these legal trends and what can be done to correctthem.</p><p>Thursday, October 27, 2011</p><p>Noon</p><p>(Luncheon to follow)</p><p>Mount Vernon Place</p><p>Undercroft Auditorium</p>;id=4386573117&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=4386573117&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=4386573117&amp;e=bc2b99230e</li><li><p>8/3/2019 bMichael Events This Week 26 October 2011</p><p> 6/38</p><p>900 Massachusetts Avenue NW</p><p>Washington, DC 20001</p><p>To register,,</p><p>fax(202) 371-0841, or call(202) 789-5229</p><p>by noon on Wednesday, October 26, 2011.</p><p>News media inquiries only (no registrations), please call(202) 789-5200.</p><p>If you can't make it to the this Forum, watch the archived video online at</p><p></p><p>Videos are usually available 24 hours after the event.</p><p>Copyright 2011 Cato Institute</p><p>1000 Massachusetts Ave NW</p><p>Washington, DC 20001</p><p>The Cato Institute invites you to an event.</p><p>The Cato Institute invites you to a</p><p>Capitol Hill Briefing</p><p>Thursday, October 27, 2011</p><p>How Much Ivory Does This Tower</p><p>Need?</p><p>featuring</p><p>Rep.

The global governance movement does not seek legitimacy in democracy, but rather in its</p><p>own partisan interpretation of human rights. Globalists argue that the U.S. Constitution must conform to evolvingnorms of international law. While this idea may seem utopian, the efforts to implement it constitute a real threat</p><p>to American democracy. The conflict between global governance and democratic sovereignty promises to be at the</p><p>heart of world politics as far into the future as the eye can see.</p><p>More About the Speakers</p><p>John Fonte</p><p>Senior Fellow and Director, Center for American Common Culture, The Hudson Institute</p><p>Hosted By</p><p>Steven Groves</p><p>Bernard and Barbara Lomas Fellow</p><p>Frightening memories of reading "The Jungle" in grade school!</p><p>Discussion:</p><p>"America Eats Series: Food Frights!
