If you are running your own DNS server and it is in the VPN pipethen sure it would be used if that is what is configured on the local device. Or you could be served out of the local resolver cache anything that hasn't expired. Or HOSTS, etc. But if you are running your own resolver, requests aren't going to an ISP reolver anyway. If you run a normal corporate DNS server and that is in the VPN tunnel also and it is configured to query an ISP DNS server, well... But your average user of some VPN service is subject to whatever resolver addresses are configured on exit server unless they specifically respect your local and/or router resolver address settings (and probably have a VPN setting to specify that, with default off).
I've seen a lot of this, people complaining that they are not using such and such resolver (especially OpenDNS if they use the domain filtering and suddenly it isn't working) and why is this happening? Turns out they are using a VPN if it isn't the ISP hijacking their requests or they seriously didn't configure things correctly.
Chain of evidence is all about trusting them to not lie and manipulate or manufacture in the first place. It doesn't matter what method they use, any can be suspect. There are definitely best prcitces and such which are better at preserving the integrity of evidence, but mostly that is a benefit to the investigation. (You know, like not changing the damn password like they did, killing the cloud storage.) Sure, some things are more likely to be seen as a clever defense challenge in court, but most are meaningless in terms of fact and more an emotional play. And there is little case here involved. They are looking for intelligence, not a way to convict dead people.
The colloquial usage of the term democracy to describe what is theoretically a democratic republic is completely irrelevant to this and everything else you "it's not a democracy" types harp on about.
When someone makes the never-heard claim that every bit of government business should be handled by a direct vote of all constituents, go ahead and explain this to them, it may have some use then.
It is not and never has been a problem of misunderstanding in any regard.
Democracy has been the key point in how governments are or were theoretically or actually in some cases granted the power to govern, as opposed to republics and other forms of government formed by other means. And that is one of the problems: That the democratic part of the process has been subverted, whther by powered authoritarian interests of by the electorate itself.
Oh dear. Violating due process. By his definition, then, this happens every time the cops leave any case unsolved, or don't really bother (which is often), whether it is murder or fraud or a stolen bicycle. Further, the courts and prosecution also violate due process since they do not seek to expose the full truth, but merely win their case. Also, the entire Earth should be held in contempt for not coughing up anyone or anything that was never found. *Squints really hard in the direction of things like concrete and fire and random holes in the ground.*
He;s demonstrated manipulation and multiple failures in amassing his consecutive fortunes. Still not a good way to run an administration, and he would not be an improvement.
If you think that what he says is stupid/racist/whatever then effectively you are saying that the American public (or at least the segment that votes in republican primaries) is also stupid/racist/whatever.
Yes. it's like being threatened by people sleeping in a car. They simply had to die. As if you had to throw incendiary devices into a bunker (of guys who are obviously too terrified to come out) you are passing while advancing toward an objective because leaving a detachment or taking prisoners is just too much work.
Nothing that should be public record of those putatively serving the public, being brought to wider attention, is "doxxing". Further, the movie and TV style imagination of cops being attacked all the hell over is just that - a fantasy. The constant abuse of authority by LEOs and their officers, however, is not.
