Run for Your Life: The American Police State Is Coming to Get You

We’ve reached the point where state actors can penetrate rectums and vaginas, where judges can order forced catheterizations, and where police and medical personnel can perform scans, enemas and colonoscopies without the suspect’s consent. And these procedures aren’t to nab kingpins or cartels, but people who at worst are hiding an amount of drugs that can fit into a body cavity. In most of these cases, they were suspected only of possession or ingestion. Many of them were innocent… But these tactics aren’t about getting drugs off the street… These tactics are instead about degrading and humiliating a class of people that politicians and law enforcement have deemed the enemy.”—Radley Balko, The Washington Post

Daily, all across America, individuals who dare to resist—or even question—a police order are being subjected to all sorts of government-sanctioned abuse ranging from forced catheterization, forced blood draws, roadside strip searches and cavity searches, and other foul and debasing acts that degrade their bodily integrity and leave them bloodied and bruised.

Americans as young as 4 years old are being leg shackled, handcuffed, tasered and held at gun point for not being quiet, not being orderly and just being childlike—i.e., not being compliant enough.

Government social workers actually subjected a 3-year-old boy to a forced catheterization after he was unable to provide them with a urine sample on demand (the boy still wasn’t potty trained). The boy was held down, screaming in pain, while nurses forcibly inserted a tube into his penis to drain his bladder—all of this done because the boy’s mother’s boyfriend had failed a urine analysis for drugs.

The DoJ Dodges a Bullet on Wilson/Brown Decision

A recent article made the statement that ” When officers are on untitledvvvduty, they don’t know if at the end of the day, they are going home, to the hospital or to the morgue”.  Strange, that is just how the public feels when they are confronted by them.

__________________________________________

The Department of Justice (an oxymoron if there ever was one) just issued its decision regarding the death of Michael Brown at the hands of Ferguson, Missouri police officer Wilson that occurred in November 2014. Like millions of other people, I was not there. I have no idea what did or did not happen other than what was related on the MSM, and you already know 99% of what comes from them is pure BS.

The DoJ determined that Michael Brown’s civil rights had not been violated. So, let me get this straight…… according to grand jury testimony, an officer confronts a man in the street and tells him to get on the sidewalk, they argue, scuffle, then he fires a total of 16 shots at him, two from inside his vehicle, one directly through the top of his head within 6-8 inches…..and the DoJ was concerned with whether his civil rights were violated? That’s what they were investigating?

As an aside:   Thanks to what had to have been careful questioning and very rehearsed answers, Wilson swore under oath that he stopped the men because he recognized their clothing from the description given for the robbery……. a robbery he could not and did not know about at the time he confronted Brown.  Did  Wilson knowingly commit perjury and intentionally lie to the grand jury about what really happened that day?

untitledvvvFor those of us who have managed to survive 2014 with our lives intact and our freedoms hanging by a thread, it has been a year of crackdowns, clampdowns, shutdowns, showdowns, shootdowns, standdowns, knockdowns, putdowns, breakdowns, lockdowns, takedowns, slowdowns, meltdowns, and never-ending letdowns.

We’ve been held up, stripped down, faked out, photographed, frisked, fracked, hacked, tracked, cracked, intercepted, accessed, spied on, zapped, mapped, searched, shot at, tasered, tortured, tackled, trussed up, tricked, lied to, labeled, libeled, leered at, shoved aside, saddled with debt not of our own making, sold a bill of goods about national security, tuned out by those representing us, tossed aside, and taken to the cleaners.

As I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, we’ve had our freedoms turned inside out, our democratic structure flipped upside down, and our house of cards left in a shambles. More

To kill the 2nd Amendment: The overthrow of the Constitutional Republic

It was with a great deal of sadness and disappointment that I viewed clips of Obama shilling for the United Nations Global Small Arms Treaty (ban) and even more disappointing to see police officers and sheriffs lined up behind him as he smiled and sold his attack on the 2nd Amendment.  I predicted back before the election that the UN Small Arms Treaty would be shelved until after the election, only to make sure Obama didn’t get a political black eye that might have turned the tide against him.  Sandy Hook made the perfect gunburn_deesopportunity to bring UN Small Arms mandates out into the public after the election. But you are not supposed to realize that the Obama wish list for gun control and eventual confiscation comes right out of the UN Small Arms Treaty.

With most all the gun owners of America poised and ready to fight back against any infringement on the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment, Obama appeared in Minnesota Monday claiming that the NRA members support his attack on the 2nd Amendment.

Uh….no they don’t! And neither do the majority of us out here who don’t even own a gun.  All the fake public polls, all the talking points delivered via MSM, will not change the fact that as Americans, we are well aware of the federal governments historical desire to disarm us. More

An Open Message to Police & Military: There is no honor in what you are doing

Submitted by John Boering

______________________________________________

Maybe we expect too much. Maybe we actually believe that our military and law enforcement agencies are comprised of  honorable individuals whom we can respect and admire.  That may have been true at some point in time, and it may be a truth to some extent now, but look at what is happening to us at the hands of these very same people, today.  The only people showing up at events, rally’s, protests or other public venues, prepared to instigate and commit acts of violence are….the military and local law enforcement.

 Here is a message for those of you who participate in the police state:

This is a message to the Police, to the military, to the TSA, to Homeland Security and to members of every other enforcement arm of the government.

Arizona Police Officer Execute Man For Telling Them They Needed A Warrant

5 Comments

_______________________________________________

A Phoenix police officer, called to a private home as the result of a family quarrel, decides not only to shoot and kill the family dog, but also the 29 year old man inside the house who was posing no threat according to the officers partner, but who informed the officer that he needed a warrant.  At this point, the officer tells the man; “I don’t need no warrant, m—— f—–!”  And delivers a fatal shot. (Again, according to the officers partner)

The head of the police officers union weighs in on the killing.  In defense of the officer he claims that “due process” must be followed and that the officer is innocent until proven guilty.  In the second news video, we see that the head of the PLEA union now says that there is additional evidence and that the officer will be acquitted, most likely. 

So we should afford the officer due process, and consider him innocent until proven guilty?  But not afford the man at home in his own house the same courtesy? 

While the head of the union claims an investigation is being conducted and that the officer has been suspended, we all know how this is most likely to end up.  The union head talks about how officers are people from the community and are carefully selected for their positions.  Based on what?  Long gone are the days when those with napolean complexes were weeded out and not allowed to be employed by law enforcement.  Crisman was finally fired by the Phoenix police department and the blue brotherhood of Homeland Security is holding BBQ’s and collecting donations to support him while he stands trial. 

No update on the status of the officers partner and his report on what was in reality a cold blooded killing by a badge heavy officer.

Reports of this kind are coming in from across the country with alarming regularity as a result of the militarization of law enforcement under Homeland Security.  Here is the most recent update on the Arizona situation:

I don’t believe there is one law enforcement vehicle in the country that still has the phrase: “To protect and serve” emblem on the doors.  According to a local sheriff’s deputy here, “There is no obligation to protect anyone by law enforcement unless we have them in custody, and then it is limited.  Our job has been redefined.   Our focus now is to protect the government and infrastructure from the general public because of the threat of homegrown terrorism.”

Heil Hitler!

LAPD moves to further restrict public oversight

 The citation of the Kusar case could be seen as paving the way for the police to operate under a mantle of complete secrecy. One could easily project into a not-so-distant future where these two legal citations, in conjunction, could be used to create a modern day “Secret Police.”

_____________________________________________

In a startling reversal of an established transparency policy, the Los Angeles Police Department has refused a recent routine records request, citing a 1993 court case, County of Los Angeles v. Superior Court (Kusar).

The Kusar case affirmed the public’s right to view contemporaneous records and the LAPD has cited this case in its refusal to release a record which is only nine months old. Coupled with the restrictions contained in Government Code 6254, which inhibits the disclosure of issues under investigation, the PD has effectively locked down information about any and all police records. 

The specific issue surrounds a request made by this reporter on March 9, 2011 for the report pertinent to the detention of a Los Angeles resident. Jeannie Tanaka was taken into custody on June 10, 2010 upon an allegation that she had violated a Restraining Order. Tanaka was apparently released prior to being booked, after the West Los Angeles  PD discovered that there was no Restraining Order in effect.  More

The “civil asset forfeiture” laws are inherently corrupt. They empower law enforcement officers to take and keep your property, even if they haven’t charged you with a crime.

It gets worse.

It’s your property that’s actually charged with a crime, and your property is considered guilty until proven innocent. This makes it virtually impossible for you to regain your possessions once they’re seized.

But it gets even worse . . .

This scheme of legalized theft actually fosters additional corruption, as demonstrated in the sample letter below. Please use the new evidence we provide to send Congress another letter arguing that . . .

Civil asset forfeiture laws should be made illegal. More

The Mexican government reports that its War on Drugs has killed 28,000 people over the past four years. This ongoing tragedy is undermining Mexico’s stability, which is bad news for the United States.

Our Own Government Has Become Our Enemy”

“Our Own Government Has Become Our Enemy”

By Chuck Baldwin

August 3, 2010

This column is archived here: ”Our own government has become our enemy.” So said Pinal County (Arizona) Sheriff Paul Babeu.

“Babeu told CNSNews.com that rather than help law enforcement in Arizona stop the hundreds of thousands of people who come into the United States illegally, the federal government is targeting the state and its law enforcement personnel.

“‘What’s very troubling is the fact that at a time when we in law enforcement and our state need help from the federal government, instead of sending help they put up billboard-size signs warning our citizens to stay out of the desert in my county because of dangerous drug and human smuggling and weapons and bandits and all these other things and then, behind that, they drag us into court with the ACLU.’ Babeu said.”

The Arizona Sheriff was then quoted as saying: “Our own government has become our enemy and is taking us to court at a time when we need help.” More

Pastor shot and killed by police

 By Michael Webster: Syndicated Investigative Reporter. 

 ATLANTA-Associated Press and others are reporting that undercover plainclothes police officers shot and killed a pastor when according to police the 28-year-old father-to-be resisted efforts to question him about a passenger in his car who was allegedly the target of a drug sting, authorities said.

Jonathan Paul Ayers of Shoal Creek Baptist Church in Lavonia wasn’t even targeted in the probe nor did he have a criminal record yet this tragedy ended in a police shooting in a public gas station Tuesday, Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokesman John Bankhead said.

But drug task-force agents say they opened fire on the pastor only after he tried to avoid them, putting his car in reverse and striking one of the officers. A video recording of the shooting obtained by the Laguna Journal clearly shows that the plainclothes undercover officers were pursuing Ayers and firing before he put his vehicle in reverse.

One witness asked “those guys looked more like criminals than cops, how was that guy or anyone else to know”? When undercover plainclothes officers are operating it seems they have a responsibility to clearly identify who they are so innocent folks won’t think they maybe being rob”.

Bankhead said agents approached Ayers after he dropped a woman off at a store in downtown Toccoa, which is about 90 miles northeast of Atlanta. The passenger allegedly was the person being investigated by the task force.

A grainy surveillance video from a nearby store shows two drug task-force agents emerge from a black SUV before Ayers’ small car backs up. The two men fire into the passenger side of Ayers’ car, and then it takes off with the agents running behind it, the video posted on WNEG-TV in Toccoa shows. The station owner would not release the video to The Associated Press.

Bankhead said Ayers died Wednesday, about an hour after he had surgery.  He said the agent who was hit by Ayers’ car was treated for minor injuries. More

When explaining to people that the government will order a mass vaccination campaign as early as mid-September, 2009, many say, “They aren’t going to vaccinate me.” If you ask public health and law enforcement officials they will tell you that the law does not allow people to be vaccinated against their will. That may be true in times of peace while elected officials are performing their duties and civil governments are still empowered. However, in a declared state of emergency, the civil authority is supplanted by martial, or military authority. Civilian officials and employees may be “deputized” to help administrate martial authority during an emergency, but civil law is effectively suspended for the duration of the emergency. The following article, originally written in Dec., 2001, has been edited and updated slightly to show that, if/when a medical emergency is declared, people will be forced to submit to a variety of inconveniences without their consent—including invasive medical interventions—or face severe consequences one generally associates with war zones. It is also plainly stated that no one working for or with the government will be held liable for death or damages to persons or their properties should they result from good-faith performance of their “lawful” duties. Since October, 2001, the tenets of MSEHPA has been sewn into the pandemic preparedness plans of most, if not all, of the several states. ~PandemicFluOnline
