Tokyo: Islands at the centre of a row between Tokyo and Beijing are covered by the US-Japan defence alliance, Barack Obama told a newspaper ahead of his arrival in Tokyo.

Mr Obama, on a tour of Asia that will also take in South Korea, the Philippines and Malaysia, is the first sitting US president to explicitly affirm that hostile action against the island chain would spark an American reaction.

“The policy of the United States is clear – the Senkaku Islands are administered by Japan and therefore fall within the scope of Article 5 of the US-Japan Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security,” Mr Obama said in a written interview with Japan’s Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper.

“We oppose any unilateral attempts to undermine Japan’s administration of these islands,” he said.

Several senior US figures, including former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel, have made similar statements, which Tokyo covets as a way to warn China away from territories it claims as the Diaoyu islands.

Mr Obama’s week-long tour of Asia is being dubbed a “rebalancing” eastward of US foreign policy by the White House.

Although China is not on his itinerary, its presence will be felt on every leg at a time of complex regional disputes and questions about US strategy.

On Wednesday, China’s state-run Xinhua news agency published a comment piece criticising US policy in the region as “a carefully calculated scheme to cage the rapidly developing Asian giant”.

Although China is not on his itinerary, its presence will be felt on every leg at a time of complex regional disputes and questions about US strategy.

The row over ownership of the Senkakus is not new, but has burst to the fore in the past two years, with paramilitary vessels from both sides jostling in nearby waters to assert control.

In November, China declared an air defence identification zone over the East China Sea, including the skies above the islands.

‘I’ve also told (Chinese) President Xi (Jinping) that all our nations have an interest in dealing constructively with maritime issues, including in the East China Sea,’ Obama told the Yomiuri.

The Department of Justice wants to explore tracking technology in its gun-control efforts. Second amendment rights supporters fear this will lead to the creation of a gun registry. Senator John Cornyn is stepping in.

Trackingpoint of Pflugerville manufactures some of the most technically-advanced guns in the world. Their precision guided firearms allow hunters to set a target and fire without missing no matter the elements.

Spokesman Oren Schauble says the company will absolutely not develop, what’s called a “smart gun” that would require identifiers such as a fingerprint to unlock and shoot.

“If you are a second amendment believer then you have the right to bear arms and it shouldn’t be constricted or monitored and also it’s offensive because it’s unproven in the sense that this technology is prohibiting your use in a very specific, potentially dangerous scenario,” Schauble said.

Smart guns are being manufactured both here in the U.S. and abroad. The Identilock by Sentinl requires a fingerprint to unlock and use a loaded gun. A company called Armatix out of Germany created the iP1 pistol and accompanying watch. The gun will only shoot if it is within range of the watch.

On April 4th, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder spoke of his support for the new technology.

“It’s those kinds of things that I think we want to try to explore so that we can make sure that people have the ability to enjoy their Second Amendment rights, but at the same time decreasing the misuse of weapons that lead to the kinds of things that we see on a daily basis,” Holder said.

The statements prompted a concerned Texas Senator John Cornyn to write a letter to Holder where he asks five questions.

Cornyn first asks if the Obama Administration is exploring the possibility of an executive order requiring all forearms to possess the technology. He also wanted to know if gun owners would be monitored.

John Woods of Texas Gun Sense who took part in rally to end gun violence in Austin Wednesday told us he supports Holder’s efforts.

Obama’s IRS launches fascistic attack on free speech – Video

Unless stronger forces prevail, the U.S. is set to relinquish authority of Internet domain naming and maintenance to an international multistakeholder group next year. The move will endanger First Amendment rights, national security and economic growth.

U.S. control of this space has been critical to protecting the freedom of expression throughout the globe.

But the new governing group includes the governments of Russia, China and other authoritarian regimes with abysmal track records on free speech.

Since the Internets inception, the U.S. has overseen the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which assigns and maintains domain names, ensuring individuals and organizations can act online without political interruption or harassment.

But the Obama administration recently agreed to hand ICANN over to a global community of businesses, public interest groups, academics, businesses and governments. Russia and China have postured for this for years.

ICANN head Fadi Chehade said all governments are welcome to be involved in the organizations new rules, and its diverse stakeholders deserve a voice in its governance.

But only countries with constitutional protections for free speech should be in charge of ensuring access to the Internet.

Authoritarian regimes and dictators will suppress human rights and breach international diplomacy with new power, just as they do in other areas of rule. In the past, Saudi Arabia tried to outlaw such domain names as .gay, .bible, .islam and .wine.

Under U.S. control these actions were stopped. But one can only imagine Vladimir Putins response to a website encouraging Ukrainians to protest his actions.

The new groups March meeting in Singapore was less than transparent. Few reports are public, and it is clear theres no plan to keep despots from engaging in censorship.

Last week the Supreme Court overturned federal limits on the total amounts that one person may contribute to candidates and political committees during a single election cycle. The government may no more restrict how many candidates or causes a donor may support than it may tell a newspaper how many candidates it may endorse, the court declared in an opinion by Chief Justice John Roberts.

But according to Justice Stephen Breyer, who wrote a dissenting opinion that was joined by three of his colleagues, the restrictions challenged in McCutcheon v. FEC are perfectly compatible with the First Amendment, which advances not only the individuals right to engage in political speech, but also the publics interest in preserving a democratic order in which collective speech matters.

The idea that individual rights must be sacrificed for the sake of a vaguely defined collective interest reflects the dangerously broad agenda of campaign-finance reformers, who seek to shape the political debate so that it comports with their own notion of the public good.

Preventing corruption is the traditional justification for limits on campaign donations. As you might expect given his nebulous aim of preserving a democratic order in which collective speech matters, Breyer favors a broad definition of corruption, including not just quid pro quo bribery (such as agreeing to vote for a bill in exchange for a donation) but also undue influence. While everyone understands what bribery entails, undue influence is in the eye of the beholder. On the day McCutcheon was argued, for instance, President Obama worried that it would exacerbate a problem created by the Supreme Courts 2010 decision in Citizens United v. FEC, which lifted restrictions on political speech by unions and corporations. The problem, according to Obama: too much speech of the wrong sort.

You have some ideological extremist who has a big bankroll, and they can entirely skew our politics, Obama complained. There are a whole bunch of members of Congress right now who privately will tell you, I know our positions are unreasonable, but were scared that if we dont go along with the Tea Party agenda or some particularly extremist agenda that well be challenged from the right. And the threats are very explicit, and so they toe the line. And thats part of why weve seen a breakdown of just normal, routine business done here in Washington on behalf of the American people.

In short, Obama thinks Citizens United was devastating (as he called it a few days after the case was decided) because it freed his opponents to criticize him and interfered with business as usual in Washington. Many Americans would see those as advantages.

In any case, its clear that Obama views campaign-finance regulation as a way of managing the political debate and keeping it from becoming too extremist, a rationale the court has never endorsed and one that is totally at odds with the First Amendments command that Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech.

Similarly, the editorial board of The New York Times, which decries the distorting power of money on American elections, cites the broad ideological change sought by the Koch brothers as a reason to keep the aggregate caps on campaign contributions. To equate the ability of billionaires to buy elections with freedom of speech is totally absurd, Rep. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) opines, while Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) bemoans the undue influence of special interests and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) complains that the Supreme Court has chosen to pour even more money into our process and our politics.

As self-financed candidates periodically discover, you cant really buy elections. Even if a candidate is interested only in gaining and retaining power, he has to convince voters he is worthy of their trust.

The undue influence that worries Breyer, Obama, Sanders, McCain and Pelosi is ultimately based on the power of speech to persuade a power Congress is forbidden to regulate.

Senkaku Islands Tension Leading to War? Syrian Civil War Rages On, Obama Care Update and M – Video

Republican Senator Rand Paul has been making a big play for millennials lately, most notably by taking his civil liberties pitch to colleges around the country. Paul has got the right idea when he says his party must evolve, adapt or die (although I think the first two are virtually the same thing).Katie Glueckof Politico wrote that The Kentucky senator drew a largely friendly reception at the University of California-Berkeley as he skewered the intelligence community.

Sen. Paul spoke of dystopian nightmares and added that your rights, especially your right to privacy, are under assault. Paulalso saidhe perceives fear of an intelligence community thats drunk with power, unrepentant and uninclined to relinquish power.

Virtually all of the other politicians taking that stand come from the left side of the political spectrum. They include figures like independent socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders and Democratic senators Ron Wyden and Mark Udall. Rand Paul is not like these other defenders of civil liberties.

Rand Paul, like his father, prefers to package his fairly old-school brand of economic conservatism under the trendier name of libertarianism. Thats not just a labeling change. It also means Paul has paired his retrograde economic ideas with a very outspoken stance against militarism and the espionage state. Its a mixture that Paul hopes can make inroads with groups that are not traditionally Republican voters.

Pauls play for millennials was almost inevitable. As a recent Pew studyreported, that generations disaffection with the two-party system appears to be at record levels. Fifty percent of millennials polled said that they do not associate themselves with either party, which is the highest percentage recorded thus far. Its also a 10 point jump from their equivalent age groups level of political affiliation only seven years ago.

But Rand Paul gravely misunderstands the nature of that political disaffection. Yes, millennials feel alienated toward political and other institutions. They have a right to feel that way. AsJoshua Hollandsays, millennials didnt abandon these institutions. The institutions abandoned them.

But Rand Paul and libertarianism are not the answer. His economic strategy can be summed up in a quota used for one of his bills: remove the shackles of big government byreducing taxes, regulations, and burdensome union work requirements.

In other words, more of the same conservative philosophy that got us in this mess in the first place. Here are 10 reasons why millennials should be extremely wary of the senator from Kentucky.

1. His philosophy of deregulation created your jobs problem.

Rand Paul loved to preach the gospel of deregulation. He went so far as to proclaim that Obama was putting his boot heel on the neck ofget thisBritish Petroleum. Why? Because BP was being asked to bear part of the cost for the oil spill it created.
