Shahid Buttar (Executive Director - Bill of Rights Defense Committee) on the rule of law in America: Does it exist anymore? - Andrew Henderson (publisher of The Nomad Capitalist and host of The Nomad Capitalist Report) on global economic freedom
Discussion centers around 'Does the rule of law still exist in America??'
Shahid Buttar, executive director, leads the Bill of Rights Defense Committee and the People’s Campaign for the Constitution (PCC)
in our efforts to defend civil liberties, constitutional rights, and
rule of law principles threatened within the United States by law
enforcement and intelligence agencies. He is a constitutional lawyer,
grassroots organizer, independent columnist, musician, and poet.
Before joining BORDC in 2009, Shahid directed a
national program to combat racial and religious profiling, after
serving for three years as associate director of the American
Constitution Society for Law & Policy. He previously pursued public
interest litigation (advancing marriage equality for same sex couples
and campaign finance reform) in private practice at Heller Ehrman LLP,
after receiving his J.D. from Stanford Law School in 2003, where he
served as executive editor of the Stanford Environmental Law Journal and
a teaching assistant for Constitutional Law. He graduated summa cum laude from Loyola University Chicago with a BA in political science and
creative writing in 2000, ten years after beginning college at the
University of Chicago and after a six-year career in financial services
to pay for school.
Shahid’s comments have been featured by news outlets including The Washington Post, The New York Times, USA Today, CNN, al-Jazeera, FOX News, Agence-France Presse, Huffington Post, Truthout, Democracy Now!,
and many others, including dozens of radio stations around the
country. He frequently addresses public audiences, such as elected
bodies, colleges, and law schools, including Stanford, UC-Berkeley,
UCLA, the University of Chicago, the University of Texas at Austin, and
Shahid also supports populist constitutionalism as a independent columnist (writing for outlets including Huffington Post and Truthout, as well as the People’s Blog for the Constitution) community organizer, and hip-hop and electronica MC.
In his creative capacities as a poet and musician, Shahid has
performed around the world, co-founded several grassroots art and
culture groups around the country, facilitated workshops for young
people and emerging artists, and released his debut CD, Get Outta Your Chair, in 2008. Shahid’s music, many of his articles, and an expanded bio are available at his website.
