The Rutherford Institute: Drivers Beware: The Deadly Perils of Traffic Stops in the American Police State

“The Fourth Amendment was designed to stand between us and arbitrary governmental authority. For all practical purposes, that shield has been shattered, leaving our liberty and personal integrity subject to the whim of every cop on the beat, trooper on the highway and jail official. The framers would be appalled.”—Herman Schwartz, The Nation

We’ve all been there before.

You’re driving along and you see a pair of flashing blue lights in your rearview mirror. Whether or not you’ve done anything wrong, you get a sinking feeling in your stomach.

You’ve read enough news stories, seen enough headlines, and lived in the American police state long enough to be anxious about any encounter with a cop that takes place on the side of the road.

For better or worse, from the moment you’re pulled over, you’re at the mercy of law enforcement officers who have almost absolute discretion to decide who is a threat, what constitutes resistance, and how harshly they can deal with the citizens they were appointed to “serve and protect.”

This is what I call “blank check policing,” in which the police get to call all of the shots.

So if you’re nervous about traffic stops, you have every reason to be.  More

Cultural dictatorship hijacked

 ” But, the vanguard of the conditioning monopoly of elite power over us appears to be crumbling now, with the establishment media falling rapidly out of favor with the public and with a spate of harmful elite policy stances – open-borders and hostile militarization being two huge facets, sold as advantageous to society – now being roundly questioned.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

     We activists who began as part of the 9/11 Truth Movement several years ago gradually learned that the object of our scorn and rage, the September 11 false-flag attacks, was just one uniquely prominent part of an out-of-sight, behind the scenes colossal, ongoing for longer than a century, shadowy directed enterprise of what’s now called the Deep State / Unelected Shadow Government / emerging New World Order to rigidly manipulate and change western and particularly American culture to serve their own interests and peculiar ambitions. That is, of what is perhaps the largest, most-sweeping and largest-cast conspiracy in world history, and likely the most damaging in a permanent sense.

9/11 itself was all about changing American and allied minds to accept the need for and participation in vast militarization and overseas imperial invasions, ultimately galore, simultaneous, and unending, the dual purpose to satisfy blood lusts and sweep the lion’s share of the earnings of wage-earners into the hands of corporate moguls and mega-investors.

Other forced culture changes, both earlier and after 9/11/01, have been, though perhaps gentler, more-or-les equally sudden and sweeping, disorienting in their cultural impact, ultimately good or bad. The “artists” with the right words and the right look at the right time saw their careers promoted. Hence, the lyrical and wistful style of music of the 1940s and ‘50s was quite suddenly swept away by the divisive and jarring sudden entrance of rock-‘n-roll. Which was steadily intensified to accompany and bring on the jarring drug culture and youth rebellion by the late ‘60s and’70s – met gladly or (mostly) not, along with the apparently spontaneous Civil Rights and Anti-Draft/Anti-War Movement, producing a powerful, coordinated backlash, that hasn’t yet entirely subsided. The main effect was to vaccinate the country and chastise deviance, after the disaster of Vietnam and a rash of dispiriting staged assassinations, against a cultural regimen seeming delivered from on high. By the end of the ‘80s, the stage was set for 9/11 and a forced scale-back in domestic concern. The Gulf War and attendant one-offs introduces a different type of domestically manufactured foe to fill our nightmares, the international terrorist. More

The Answer is No. The Time is Now

If I had the opportunity to sit in each living room of America, this would be the conversation I would have with each individual who believe they have no power.

America – why are we making this so difficult? The endless discussion, the banter back and forth, the reconciliation game being played in Washington, D.C., Republican, Democrats, Constitutionality?

The answer, though simple, is quite clear once the muck is removed from the discussion. No. Polite, firm and insistent. “No Thank you Mr. Republicrat. The answer to Health Care Reform is No. The answer to an increase in Taxes? No.”  Not a qualified maybe, not a “wait and see”, the answer is No.

Can one not see the return of the Republican’s to the discussion is no more than their attempt to grab what little power and money not already jingling in the pockets of the Democrats? The call sweeping the Nation now  is – “The Vote in 2010 is going to wipe out the corruption in Washington, by replacing the Democrats with Republicans.” Do you really believe that?

I say the answer is No.   No incumbents.   Each and every one of them has contributed to the conflagration that currently abides in this Nation. If you truly believe that through the election process a single one is going to carry through for your wants or needs, take the blinders off and open your eyes.

The only path to the return to simple Government of the People By the People is the People.

Not promises, additional Regulatory Practices, endless debate or bargaining. More
