    The Time To Fight Back Is Now: Striking Back at Police State Amerika

    policestateamerika1Every day a granny is goosed by TSA, a federal swat team raids the wrong house, a citizen acquitted of a crime still has their property confiscated by authorities, even the dumbed down public is aware that their every communication is monitored by the NSA and Obama has set his administration up to violate every constitutional right of every citizen in America under the NDAA and Executive Order 13603.

    Anyone who possess an IQ above room temperature is aware that our federal government is totally out of control and is wreaking tyranny upon the American people. As a people, we have seemingly grown numb to the constitutional violations perpetrated by our government against the citizens of this country. However, the abuse of citizens does not begin and end with the federal government.

    Trickle Down Tyranny

    With ever increasing frequency, the alternative media reports countless numbers of stories of citizen abuse at the hands of their local police and city officials. The local police departments have been federalized by DHS. They are provided millions of federal dollars for equipment and the new breed of police view the people as their enemy as opposed to the old cops walking a beat who previously viewed the majority of the people as their ally against crime. Through the influence of DHS, your local police department is looking to pounce on your every mistake with excessive force and brutality and they do so frequently while ignoring and violating any number of constitutional protections.

    When Is An Arrest Is Not Really An Arrest?

    Portland police officer Dean Halley must have failed his American Government class in high school. A reasonable person would also have to wonder if Portland Deputy City Attorney William Manlove got his law degree from Walmart. what am I referring to? Well, if the Scott Miller jaywalking case is any indication, the Portland legal system is one big fascist entity that is totally out of control.

    policestateamerika2Scott Miller was running late to work. In an effort to catch his bus, he diagonally jaywalked in the crosswalk to catch his rid.

    Portland police officer Dean Halley was on patrol and was able to intervene just in the nick of time and arrest this menace to society. Halley approached Miller and told him to produce identification. Miller was subsequently fumbling around on his person looking for his ID when Halley immediately pounced on Miller, knocked him to the ground, informed Miller that he was under arrest and placed him in handcuffs. Halley subsequently confined Miller in the back of his police cruiser and then proceeded to drive the criminal jaywalker a block away. The total ordeal lasted 30 minutes, but while in the police cruiser, Miller experienced a panic attack and paramedics were dispatched to the scene to administer aid. Miller was subsequently convicted in court of failure to obey a traffic signal.

    Miller has obtained an attorney, Leonard Berman, and Miller is attempting to sue the Portland Police Department for an illegal arrest because jaywalking is not an offense that one can be arrested for.

    Halley, a 20 year police veteran, admits he told Miller that he was under arrest. However, Deputy City Attorney William Manlove is arguing that citizens cannot sue under these circumstances because such acts do not constitute an actual arrest. Manlove stated that the encounter between Halley and Miller amounted to no more than a “chat.” Manlove characterized the encounter as being something “between a chat and custody, but not an arrest for purposes of legal action.” Are you kidding me?

    The Real Crime Committed by Officer Halley

    Let’s take Manlove’s twisted version of the encounter between Halley and Miller, and blindly conclude that Halley did not arrest Miller, despite knocking him down, telling him he was under arrest, handcuffing him, placing him in the police car and drove him a block away. For the sake of argument let’s be in agreement with Manlove that this was just a friendly chat. Under these circumstances that both sides agree upon, was there a crime committed by Halley? You bet there was. The first crime committed by Halley is called aggravated assault. Halley was presumably armed and attacked Miller knocking him to the ground. When Halley handcuffed Miller, he committed the offense of unlawful imprisonment just the same when one abusing spouse will not let their partner leave the premises. And the biggest crime committed by Halley is that this officer is guilty of kidnapping which is what it is called when someone forcibly detains a person and removes them to another location. Please keep in mind that jaywalking is an offense for which a person cannot be arrested for committing. In the upside down world of the Portland legal system, Miller gets convicted in court and Halley is not in jail for aggravated assault, unlawful detention and kidnapping.

    What Is Wrong With Portland Is a Microcosm of the US

    Who among has never jaywalked? All of us are risk to be the next victim of this tyranny. Unfortunately, the behavior of officer Halley and City Attorney Manlove is typical of most police departments and their prosecutors. They get off on the rush of lording power over others. Prosecutors think that they will move ahead in their careers with high conviction rates and many of the police think the same by looking to arrest as many people as possible and going so far as to even inventing crimes for which to arrest the public for. This is why the United States contains 25% of the world’s prison population despite only having 5% of the world’s population.The US is number one in the world in people who are incarcerated.

    Portland, like almost every other city is broke and has been under an austerity plan for the past couple of years. This encourages the cops to hide behind the bushes and catch as many speeders as possible. Cops, in short, are mandated to be mobile tax collectors and they are looking for any excuse to make arrests for the most minor of offenses. These behaviors are not compatible with a supposedly free society.

    In preparation for this article, I have been watching some episodes from the TV show, Cops, in order to assess the quality of interactions with the public. In one episode I viewed, a cop pulls over a cyclist for coasting through a stop sign in a quiet residential neighborhood. Just like officer Halley, the Sacramento cop thinks this provides him with the right to violate the man’s Fourth Amendment rights. With no probable cause to search the man’s backpack and person, the cop does just that. The man had a marijuana pipe in his backpack and off to jail he goes in another stunning example of your tax dollars at work.Before you tell me that the man got his just desserts, please read the Fourth Amendment.

    In another episode, the Tampa police were conducting undercover marijuana sales to motorists. As part of the bust, an unmarked cop car speeds out of a hiding place and rams the front end of the drug buyers car. When a couple of the arrested individuals protested the ramming of their cars, a Tampa cop repeatedly states that “this is no longer your car, we own it and you will have to buy it back from us.”

    I don’t use drugs and I have not smoked marijuana, but you have to be kidding me when we asked to believe that the cops have the right seize anyone’s car for a small amount of marijuana. What if the buyers had purchased their marijuana on foot, would their shoes or possibly their clothes been stolen by the Tampa Police Department? These thugs with a badge will also take your house for having small amounts of marijuana in their house. Whose interests are these cops serving?

    The TV show that takes the case is Bait Car. As an aside, I have had my car stolen twice and I wanted the perpetrators arrested and prosecuted. I want gangster drug dealers busted and sent to prison. However, do we really want to send marijuana users to prison? When is it good law enforcement to bait people into committing a crime they might not otherwise commit? This is true of undercover drug sales of personal use quantities of drugs and it is definitely true when the cops bait people into stealing their bait car by making it inviting. Isn’t there enough crime that should occupy law enforcement without entrapping the public? However, one should remember that the prisons are being transitioned into for profit ventures and the cops and prosecutors are all too happy to cooperate with the Bush family et al in this venture. Who really thinks that this represents good law enforcement? Yet, the show Bait Car, is all about entrapping people who might not otherwise commit a crime.

    The Small Town of Deer Trail, CO. Is Leading the Way In the Fight Against Tyranny

    The town board Deer Trail, CO., is considering an ordinance  in which residents may soon be allowed to shoot down drones. The ordinance would permit people with hunting licenses to fire bullets at the hated drones. Also, the town would also pay these drone hunters $100 for each “mechanical hide” with federal markings. Is there anyone reading this that is not smiling from ear to ear?

    I do not really think it is a good idea to be shooting bullets up in the air because they can return to earth with devastating consequences. But in this small town, someone is finally showing the intestinal fortitude that is needed in this country in order to fight back against federal and local tyranny. The proposed ordinance is certainly more symbolic than real. However, it is a start and you know that somewhere in the DOD, they just discovered where Deer Trail, CO. is located on a map. We need more Deer Trails.

    What Can Be Done in Cities Like Portland

    Although we don’t want to be shooting bullets in the air at drones, there are things we can do to fight against an out of control government and its increasing level of criminality.

    Portland citizens should consider conducting a mass jaywalking night and do so in front of the police headquarters. Portland should also sponsor a “film the police” night. People armed with their cell phones should video tape every police action that they witness. If the cops know that they are under increased surveillance, then they might behave and the officer Halley’s of the law enforcement world will find their next job at Walmart conducting parking lot security as their transgressions are caught on tape and they rightfully lose their jobs.

    Yes I know, that people have been arrested for filming the police. When that happens the people of that community need to recall their mayor for facilitating state sponsored terrorism against their citizens. This is what should already be happening in Portland. I say that if the police want to put the people under such undue surveillance, we the people need to return the favor. In places like Portland, businesses should not be serving law enforcement personnel and prosecutors. Prosecutors such as Portland Deputy City Attorney, Manlove and officer Halley, should not be able to find a place to do their laundry. Apartment owners should refuse to rent to these “types”.

    Don’t let your children play with their children. After filming cops and their transgressions, show up at city council meetings with still photographs and present them at the public comment period. Start Youtube channels which features public officials and their wrongdoings. Take pictures of the weeds in their yards and send the photos and a request for action to their local HOA’s. Embarrass any government and law enforcement official with public exposure when they break the law and violate the civil liberties of their citizens.

    All Politics Is Not Local

    Local boycotts and protests are certainly easier to implement on a local level. However, the same principles need to be employed against federal officials. Treat them and their families like they have the plague. IRS and NSA officials should be treated like the colonists did the Stamp Tax collectors in pre-Revolutionary War period.

    If you own a mid-size business, go to video conferencing strategies in order to conduct long distance activities. Send the airlines a letter telling them that you are not subjecting your employees to the tyranny of the TSA and your people will not be flying. If enough of us did that, the TSA would fade away instead of expanding to trains, bus depots and highways. The entire country needs to be sending such a letter to the airlines. For when US Airways, Southwest and the other virtual airline monopolies are financially hurting, they will be screaming at the federal government to change their corrupt system.
    To strike back at the criminal IRS, shop at garage sales. Trade and barter as much as you can. Refuse to use one of the five megabanks as a lender to buy a house in response to the MERS robo-signer mortgage fraud. Use your local credit union for all loans. Follow the same advice for buying a car. In fact, you should not buy a car until you can pay cash for it. Take the debt advantage away from the banksters that have hijacked our government. Refuse to shop at a corporate chain store such as Kmart, Walmart or any other slavemart store and shop locally. Unlike the failed LA riots of 1992, we do not have to burn down our own neighborhoods to make a statement. We just need to withdraw our support and our money.

    Educate Your Children Outside the System

    American families need to ban together and educate their children outside the system as much as possible. Someone just brought to my attention that some fully accredited foreign universities are having discussions aboutoffering online classes to American college students at a fraction of the cost in response to the tyrannical post-secondary education system that is running the show in the US. These foreign entrepreneurs are looking to profit from the predatory practices being exhibited our post-secondary institutions. The student loan debacle in this country is highly criminal and is extremely predatory and should be avoided at all costs.

    policestateamerika3Homeschooling will soon be outlawed in the US for the same reasons it was outlawed in Germany. The establishment wants people smart enough to do their job, but not so smart that they can question authority. This does not change the responsibility factor of parents who need to redouble their efforts to not let their children believe that the constitutional violations happening in our country are acceptable.

    Parents need to focus on raising their children to respect the rule of law (i.e. the Constitution), not the thuggery that has replaced the rule of law. The globalists need to know that no generation of Americans will ever accept and fully submit to their tyranny and eventually the banksters day of justice will come.

    Explore alternatives. Non-participation is the ultimate blow to any corrupt organization.

    policestateamerika4You must attend your Congressman’s next Town Hall Meeting. Show up and tell them that you will work to unelect them unless they subject themselves to the same substandard and dangerous Obamacare system that they have sentenced us to. Unelect all incumbents until they repeal this genocidal, death panel ridden form of health care. And the same standard of political retention needs to be applied to the repeal of the Stasi inspired NDAA.

    I do not have the space to present all of my ideas on striking back at what I dub “Police State Amerika,” but I am sure my point is not lost on those who have a backbone and a pulse.
    Did I mention to store and grow your own food, store water and hide your guns and ammo? Do these three things now in preparation for the possible time that you may need them when the Russian/NATO/UN troops come knocking at your door. Don’t make the mistake of believing that when the Russians show up at your door to seize your guns, that officer Halley will respond to save the day.

    Nonviolence Does Not Imply Compliance

    It is time people for the spirit of civil disobedience to rear its head. Short of not complying with any form of gun confiscation. The type of peaceful revolution that I am proposing can be effective without ever firing a shot. Those that know me, know that I am nonviolent. However, that does not mean that I will not become non compliant against this encroaching tyrannical police state.

    If we are going down as a country, I am not submitting without a fight. Will you join me? The time to fight back is now! What is your idea on how to fight back against this tyranny? Please leave a comment with your suggestion.Writing your suggestions is the first step towards action. If you care about your country and your children’s future, let your voice be heard.

          The real and ONLY way of fighting back starts right at the most difficult human emotion to purge, the instinct to be part of the crowd and swim with the school. This is what is the worst enemy of anyone, conformity. The political correctness crap is running amok, and says that if you feel something you cannot say it, even with your first Amendment rights to do so, because you might offend someone. The whole stupid MSM is full of the A,B,C,D,E,F,G………. words instead of saying the word. This is taboo conformity.

          The government wants this, complete fear to exercise your right to express yourself without any other reason than you have that right. I think one of the most positive courses of actions before the total collapse of everything is that each and every Amerrican regardless of race needs to become extremely familiar with the Constitution of the United States of America and ALL those rights that were given to ALL of us.

          In other words screw the race crap thing, and let everyone see the shear importance of what it means to be free. Especially stress all these utter failures of other countries that don’t have a constitution. Oh the government would hate this with seething rage to every American go right back to their roots and start to see that their neighbor is not the enemy, it is those in control and very high positions that are trying to enslave everyone and anyone that are the problem. People have to piss on this political correctness liquid manure and see that free speech must NEVER be taken for granted or given away like so many of the brain dead masses want to do.

          The government that wishes to control everyone and make them into cyborgs has an enemy of their own, it is called awareness. This starts with the biggest thorn in the asses of any politician or elitist, and it is the Constitution that every American should be sent out a copy of to know they have rights and protection under it.

            July 22, 2013 at 9:17 am Here are some of the reasons we cant trust MSM

            CNN president Virginia Moseley is married to Hillary Clintons Deputy Secretary Tom Nides

            CBS President David Rhodes is a Brother of..Top Obama Official Ben Rhodes..who changed Bengazi talking points

            ABC President Ben Sherwood is the Sibling of Obama special Advisor Elizabeth Sherwood

            all of this and more( way more this is tip of the ice burg shit) plays into why and how the MSM is complicite in whats going on and what is and isn’t being reported and how its being reported

            it is playing a part in the lynching of the innocent Zimmerman
            it is playing a part in what you hear or see in all the scandals surrounding DC and this presidency

            It is playing a role in the one sided race baiting in this country..

            the media is bought and sold, just like the banks

                Around 1913, that “two bucks” would have bought you 33 cups of coffee.

                As a side note, think about this. In 1913 there were no income taxes, no sales taxes, no state taxes, and not much in the way of property taxes.

                The problem with socialism/fascism and a central bank is, eventually they run out of other peoples money, and then they’re left with just printing it.

                A collapse will follow. America is on the fast track.

                It took less than 300 years.

              Indeed VRF, the takedown of America was impossible without their ” help”. Now that it’s too late to change the inevitable, the media should rate quite special attention after the collapse, perhaps the common man will have a chance to ” thank” them personally for their handiwork.

              @ tired of ny bs. The faults around New Zealand are some of the most rigid in the world. Some faults will smoothly have their earthquake and the aftershocks die off very quickly. In New Zealand this is not the story. Remember the quakes in Christchurch that just kept coming? Lots of aftershocks and a much higher than the usual 5% chance of a bigger one to follow. I would say that area will have aftershocks for weeks. The rest of the world is gearing up for something quite large. The last time there was so many precursor quakes on the plate boundaires the largest ever recorded deep focus earthquake struck off of eastern Russia at 8.3.

I’ve said certain things about certain issues over the years that allegedly offended someone, but I don’t care. I’m about as prepared as I can be for the struggle that will soon be upon us. I’m hearing that the protests for Trayvon Martin have been co-opted by the Occupy Wall St. gang. If that’s true, expect some real rioting to take place, especially if the ‘black block’ makes an appearance, and they most likely will be there to perpetrate it. Those riots COULD be the trigger for martial law, and when martial law is declared, IT WILL BE GAME ON! Once we get in this fight, we’re in it for the duration, or until we’re killed; at least I know I will be. There’s no turning back once you go through the door. It will be a world of trouble.

            What you are saying is what I have been trying to tell anyone who will listen (there aren’t many). The govt tries to divide us in many different ways in order to render us powerless to change the status quo. But the real war going on is between the collectivists and the individualists. This is related to Agenda 21. They want us all herded into the cities so we become collectivists like the Obamanites so they can control our food, our water, our power, our travel, and even our minds. Spying on us and gathering data about every aspect of our lives is merely the first step in making this happen. Next will come the common digital currency and global financial governing body. They’re going to use taxes, water rights, land rights, and power rights to make life harder and harder for free-thinking rural people in order to drive them into the collectivist cities where everything will be controlled. You want to leave the city to visit a state park, you’ll have to get on a waiting list for a bus tour where you can take pictures through the windows. Of course, none of this will apply to the elites. We can already see the mainstream news being turned into collectivist news, where the important is trivialized and the trivial ss presented as what we’re all supposed to be focused on.

            • This is a letter I had published in the News Review of Roseburg, Oregon. The replies I got were overwhelming to say the least. People from 18 to 85 agree with me but they are afraid to speak out. Please inhale and pass.

              Let’s Talk About OBAMACARE.
              I went to see my physician and he told me because I smoke, (he said someone in town told on me), and that my wife is overweight, (yes, he was insulting). That we, (my wife and I), would have to pay higher insurance premiums under Obamacare.
              I cannot believe how many people agree with this.
              Please, my people of Oregon, can’t you understand this slippery slope. This administration has done everything possible to separate us as a people. This is the so called divide and conquer technique. Obama is all for corporations and not the individual citizen.
              If we start charging more for healthcare insurance because of personal flaws, where will it end?
              Will we start testing peoples IQ’s? We all know people with lower intelligence have more accidents than people with high IQ’s. Do you see where this is going?
              Do you see who will be enforcing it?
              Here is a quote from an article from the Galen Institute entitled, “The IRS and the 46 new powers to enforce Obamacare”.
              “The power granted to the IRS to enforce ObamaCare’s mandates, taxes, penalties, reporting, and other requirements is unprecedented. Based upon Government Accountability Office data, we count 46 new responsibilities assigned to the IRS under the health law.”
              Is this the same agency that has recently posted 10s of thousands of social security numbers online by mistake?
              The current administration has no real clue on what America is about.
              We must return the dignity and sovereign nature of the individual to each and every one of us.
              Steven Douglas Elwood

            I have thought about this a lot over the last 3 years or so, and I have come to the conclusion that this tactic simply won’t work. You cannot get a big enough consensus of people in this country to come together and do anything. Peaceful non-compliance might have worked for Ghandi. It might have worked for the people of Iceland. But we have a different country that is sliced up and divided apart like a pizza. The politicians and the PTB know this. there really is only way to get rid of the scum and that is to take it out by force. You take entitlements for instance. Most of us understand the moral idea of providing a safety net for people. But when you do this through the kind of govt we have it will always turn into a cancer. We cannot get rid of the cancer now because we are being out-voted by the people who want their free swag, and they are going to vote for more and more swag until they take the entire paychecks of the working class.

              Reynaldo, this is not true yet. If all the people that voted for McCain had voted for Romney, he would have won. Too many of us, and similar, don’t vote. Look at the percentage that votes, there is a lot of room for improvement. I know people that stay home, and they would more than likely vote our way. A total waste. The system is screwing us because too many that could make a difference – DON’T. I know gun owners that don’t vote and won’t join the NRA or GOA. What kind of thinking is that?? 3-4 million stayed home because they didn’t think Romney was what — not conservative enough, not gun owner enough, not anti-illegal enough?? What?? What did that do? The perfect candidate is not on this planet. Get over it. Start by blocking the worst.

            Yes, juries have much more power than many of them realize. Not only can they decide guilty or not guilty but they can also decide if the supposed violated “law” is a just/ good law. I would suggest anyone who doesn’t know what the term “jury nullification” means to investigate it. A hundred years ago it was told you by the judge but they don’t inform of this third option anymore.

        Homeschooling will never be outlawed in this country, most people that commit to homeschooling are ready and able to defend that right. They will not sit by and allow the regime to dictate which way their children will be taught.

        Homeschool Families will never give up their right to teach their children the way they see fit, they are a group of citizens who the regime knows they can not mess with. If you don’t believe me then wait and see, this is one group that will fight and win because they are fighting for their children. I have never seen a more dedicated bunch of people who will do whatever it takes to continue the fight against a government that wants to own their children. You want to see a really pissed off giant, then try taking that right away from them.

          There has been a new series of commercials on TV promoting homeschooling using the current govt controlled public education system’s curriculum. It’s no stretch to believe that they will allow homeschooling, but only under the auspices of the controlled system, and to verify, your children would have to take and pass a series of public school system tests. I’m sure there will be other hoops you’ll have to go through also to prove you are not deviating from the public school system indoctrination program.

            You are wrong, there are Christian colleges and private colleges that will always accept homeschoolers, and who is to say the everyone has to go to college. As for the curriculum, that is personal choice, there are Christian based curriculums as well as home created curriculums. Look up New Hampshire law regarding homeschooling, no end of the year testing or reporting to the school district. If your State does not look kindly upon homeschooling then move to one that does.

              Excellent post, I have a perfect example for you. My Son was looking for part time summer work, he is a teenager entering 11th grade, he inquired about a job application at a privately owned pet shop in our area and was told that they were no longer hiring. The owner asked him what school he attended and he responded that he was homeschooled, the owner then handed him a job application and said he would see what he could come up with for him. The owner was impressed with my Son’s politeness and sincerity, homeschool kids do have the advantage where it counts.

              the home education/GED/Community College/4 yr college route works. although I agree that for many people (especially men) college is a waste of time & money, mainly good for grooming you for a job in brain dead, politically correct, feminized, soul destroying corporation.

              I love lists that detail outliers. I don’t have a list of loser college drop outs. It is too long and no one has heard of them. Yes yo moma, there are exceptions to most any concept or hardened thoughts. Pointing out outliers does not paint a sincere picture. How about all the non billionaires who did graduate from college but did not get up to billions. Doctors lawyers engineers. Etc.

                Yep. I graduated in ’97 with a BS in CS, and at the age of 37. I wouldn’t trade my time in school or my diploma for very many things in this world. There’s nothing wrong with a college education. The real problem is something that goes much deeper and reflects the complete moral decay our society has fallen into from top to bottom. College education is being poisoned by the financial aid scam. The financial aid scam is a microcosm of how nearly every aspect of our economy and way of life has been turned into some kind of financial scam designed to enrich a few at the expense of the many. They throw just enough free and easy swag down to the bottom feeders to keep them compliant and complicit in the scams. None of this is sustainable. The scams on Wall Street are not sustainable. The scams in DC are not sustainable. the scams in our state govts are not sustainable. The scams coming out of corporate America are not sustainable. Pensions are scams, entitlements are scams, and none of them are sustainable. So how long can we go on like this??

            Indy Colts: Incorrect my friend. If you can pass a university entrance exam, you’re just about in ($$$). There was young fellow on the Tonight Show that was homeschooled by his parents, both former teachers. They lived so far out in the country that they didn’t even have electricity. This young man scored second place on his exam to enter Harvard out of all the applicants that year. And yes, he went on scholarship because he was so damned smart.

          We are a proud homeschool family (I was a public school teacher and witnessed so much crap it would make ANY decent parent run far away from the system).

          I do not think homeschooling will be “illegal” anytime soon but I do believe the feds & even the local gov’ts will try to pile on restrictions in an effort to “control” homeschooling trends.

          Mandatory state testings, mandatory curriculum, etc.

          But there will be plenty of homeschool families who will not do it, despite it being a mandate.

            Not in New Hampshire, here you can create your own curriculum, I know all about common core. You see, homeschoolers knew about common core before the general public. We know what the U.N. is trying to pull off and we know what bills are being presented that would harm homeschooling, before the general public has a clue. The homeschool coalition is a quiet and deadly force that no one in congress wants to mess with.

          No tests, getting lesson plans approved, no public school teacher supervision, nothing. Complete freedom to teach my kid whatever I want to teach them.

          I’ve already decided that I will not comply with common core, should it be forced upon us. The way the colleges are becoming little liberal indoctrination factories, I’m not so sure I want my kids to go to college anyway.

          YMWW, there’s something you and I have some common ground on. It galls me when someone says, “if you don’t vote, you can’t complain”. Nobody needs a voter registration card to speak their minds. The elections are all scams, anyway. Which POS do you want in office, the Democrat or Republican? George wallace said back in 1972, “There’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the Democratic and Republican parties.” There’s no point in playing the voting game because the people are going to lose every time. Like Joseph Stalin once said, “It’s not the people who vote that make decisions. It’s the people who count the ballots who decide everything.” braveheart

        The numbers are with US! 100 MILLION AMERICAN GUN OWNERS hold the future of this nation in their hands. Victory ALWAYS belongs to those who refuse to quit. Take a breath, get some space, then get back into the fight.

        For now, add your voice to the Tea Party as it infiltrates the Retards. With enough support from gun owners, RINOS could become an endangered species.

        That’s a start. Engage! :-)

          DK, while I can appreciate the thought, the Tea Party was hijacked by the neocons. It was originally inteneded to be an independent movement to get Ron Paul into the White House. That one opportunity we had for peaceful change is gone forever and now revolution is the only hope I see for our country. Revolution will be the only way to eradicate what the commies have done. braveheart

      IMHO, LEO will do what they are told for a paycheck. I’m sure many LE know what they are doing is abusive and anti-Constitution and just revenue generation. And we keep seeing them do it. AND it’s getting worse.

      If I had my way. I’d make them liable for any civil rights violations. Why should the taxpayers pay for their mistakes? Their pay should be docked. Even if it takes decades. Their pensions should be docked too. Even if they don’t get a Dime when they retire.

      One of our big problems is there is no accountability in state and federal government for bad behavior/law violations. Make them pay and they might stop being bad.

        Sierra Dave, you hit the nail RIGHT ON THE HEAD!! I’ve been telling people this for quite some time. Around here, leo’s live large. Big houses, bikes, boats, lots of toys and nice new cars. Does anyone here really think that they’ll give all that up?? Think about it. They WILL NOT walk away from all that. They will follow unlawful orders because if they don’t they lose everything and that’s just not going to happen. Sure, some will abide by the Constitution but like what was already alluded to in the article, the younger cops are a new breed. I happen to know a leo who has told be all about these guys. They are taught in the academy that WE are the enemy, and everyone should be treated as a potential threat no matter how old or the sex of the Citizen. They can not be trusted to uphold the Constitution. The old motto “To Protect and Serve” is no longer in play. This is coming from a guy who’s been in law enforcement for over 30 years.

          Ben in CT, you’re right, I’m sad to say. What you mentioned about cops being taught that the public is their enemy is part of the federal curriculum that all the academies were forced to adopt after 911 and the creation of DHS. The mentality you see behind the local and state uniforms and badges of today is the same federal attitude toward the people that has been in existence since the Lincoln Administration. Since 2002, the academies have turned out countless mindless robots at local, county, and state levels. That doesn’t count the ones that are turned out at the federal level every year. Some people in LE have actually managed to wake up and see the reality of what they’re doing. Not all cops are bad, but on a personal level, I’m still not sure what to expect from them or the military, so I’m still wary of both. We need to turn the tables on them with their mindset and I think there are enough victims of police abuse out there who would go along with me. They actually have good reason now to view LE as the enemy and treat ALL LE as a potential threat. turn that federal brainwashing into a double-edged sword. it could happen. braveheart

            Braveheart, I agree with you about the feds co-opting the local (and state) LE agencies. Living in the north east I feel almost like i’m behind enemy lines, lol. We plan on moving to a free state as soon as we can, but probably not until early next year. Can’t come fast enough too. The LE agencies here now have automatic weapons (M16′s), armored MRAP type vehicles and numerous other military surplus equipment and gear that NO LE agency needs for domestic LE applications IMO. And obviously this is going on coast to coast. One has to ask…….WHY??

        When the Muslim terrorists flew airplanes into the WTC the politicians were quick to point out that “not all Muslims are terrorists”. Still, it was damned hard to find a Muslim that would openly condemn the killers.

        When a gang of blacks attacks and kills a white man we hear the refrain (if the story even makes the news) that most blacks are peaceful – yet any who condemn the attack are called “Uncle Toms”.

        When a police officer commits a crime agnst a citizen and follows it up by arresting that citizen and fabricating evidence to support the arrest any other officer who might have witnessed the act generally keeps his mouth shut and allows the citizen to become victimized again. When the story does air (if it does) we’re assured that “most” of the cops are good guys and only a few are bad apples.

        Folks, if I witness a crime and withhold evidence I’m guilty of being an accessory to that crime. The Muslims who bite their tongues and withheld evidence are also accessories. The black citizen who has knowledge of who perpetrated the murder is an accessory to murder. And the police officer who looks away in disgust but fails to turn in his fellow officer is just as guilty as the one with actual blood on his hands and deserves the exact same treatment.

        Of the three groups I’ve mentioned, Muslims probably check in here the least and LEOs the most. You cops need to remember, you are supremely vulnerable to any who feel the need to “sanction” you. At some point you need to reassess your priorities and decide if that pension you’ve been promised is worth what you may have to pay for it. Remember also that cities, counties, states and – yes, even the Federal Government – is going broke. There may be NO pension, only sanctions!

    17. The pace of these type of abuses over the past ten years is only getting worse, it appears to me we are being funneled and pushed down a path that isn’t natural. It’s clear BigGov/Progs have been attempting to push us into an event that will start the downfall, currently the powers that be cannot understand why one of us has not attempted something radical yet.

      Too many Cops today have been programed into believing they are a separate part of the community, they’re deliberately being pitted against us, and they too often see all citizens as criminals because it’s easier to treat everyone like shit rather then apply reason and critical thinking.

      In short too many cops are just lazy programed robots.

      Great article!
      First of all, it blows my mind when I see these ridiculous stories pasted all over the news in order to draw attention away from real issues; the Zimmerman/Treyvon Martin case. Black and white self defense from a hood that I would have gunned down long before Zimmerman’s patience finally broke. The woman that falls from a roller coaster at Six Flags. Quite interesting that I actually had to go searching for the picture of this disgustingly obese woman, despite the mass quantities of articles and news reports that have been everywhere since. How many of you knew/had heard that this woman was by many standards “morbidly obese”? I mean seriously, anyone with a basic understanding of physics can look at this picture and go “Well what the hell was she doing on a roller coaster!?”
      http://www.ign.com/boards/threads/picture-of-the-woman-who-fell-of-the-roller-coaster-released.453210501/
      It doesn’t take an Einstein or a Newton to understand that even IF you can get her lap bar nestled between her rolls far enough to lock, and get her safety strap adjusted all the way out to the “Fat Albert” setting and secured, that those devices are not designed to hold someone that weighs nearly that much weight, let alone while moving as fast as that coaster does. Its simple physics and anyone with half of a brain looks at this and once again…black and white. Those are the news reports that are being fed to the American people, in a very specific manner, so as to keep the sheeple attention from the REAL news. How about the cops in Hawthorne, California that gunned down a man’s dog for absolutely NO reason. If you haven’t seen the video of this you should look it up on Youtube. I will let the video do the explaining because I get entirely too angry doing it myself. Lets just say that if I was that man, and that cop gunned my dog down in front of me like that, they would have had to kill me. Right then, right there. If I was a bystander that witnessed that I would have been drawn and shooting. In the military, our dogs were one of us. You shoot our dog its just the same as shooting a human soldier, and we reacted accordingly. All that being said, did ANY of you see this on the news? I sure didn’t. There is a reason. ANYONE who has a heart and half a brain looks at that video and starts to turn green.
      Now, all that being said, my point is that we must walk the fine line between non-violence and appropriate response to deliberate act of war. I like the ideas you proposed, mass jay walking, mass video recording of police (which I think all interactions between police and general public should be recorded). However, if a cop goes to throw me on the ground for jaywalking, or a cop puts his hands on me, or point a weapon at me, it will be met with appropriate response, and they best know exactly what they are doing. I may lose the battle, I’m not superman, they may hit me with the taser, or mace (both of which I have experienced before and, with training, you can learn to fight through), or even gun me down but my example will be set. I WILL NOT simply lay down and take it. I WILL NOT abide this oppression. I’m not going to go out and look for a fight, and I will live my life according to reasonable law in order to not draw attention to myself, but if they throw the first blow, if they attack me first, I view it as an act of war. An act of war is met with war.

      What I think would be pretty magical, and it would set quite a stage not to mention put cops on their heels when it comes to infringing upon/attacking us, is when these things happen, when a man is thrown on the ground and in handcuffs for jaywalking, we conduct an old fashioned citizens arrest. If you see a cop committing a crime against a citizen, or really at all, and you’re with one or two brothers that you trust, take him. Have someone who is willing to record the cop/cops committing the crime and record you and your men taking him. Cops may wear body armor and carry weapons but that doesn’t make them Rambo. Get the drop on them, draw your weapons and have them lay face down on the ground. Disarm them of course, handcuff them, put them in the back of your truck, and take them downtown to their own station with 2 to 3 witnesses and possibly a lawyer in tow. The embarrassment factor alone is enough for cops not to mess with citizens. If drawing on a cop is too much, carry a taser yourself. If not that then learn to throw a good rear naked choke. When they are down on a knee putting someone else in restraint throw a solid rear naked choke. Properly executed they will be out cold in mere seconds and you will have close to a minute to disarm, cuff him before he wakes up all poopy-faced. The key is going to be not using unnecessary force but using enough that the cop/cops have no choice but to comply. Yes you may be arrested and charged once you take him to jail but with proper witnesses and video record it would not and could not hold up in court, especially if you have direct video of the cop/cops committing a crime. Lets not forget, PUT THOSE VIDEOS STRAIGHT ON YOUTUBE. You can bet that this wont be seen on the news unless you have pull with a reporter/journalist, which would be ideal. If we can get this started somewhere and get some videos out there of this being pulled off successfully, we could inspire a lot more people to get it done.

      Lets start booking a few cops for the crimes that they commit against us and we’ll see how the piggies respond. My guess is that as soon as one or two get balled up and rolled into their own station in handcuffs with video evidence of them committing a crime, that they start treating us with more respect and we start having a lot less rights trampled on. Set examples my brothers. I will do my best to set mine, and follow the ones that you set forth. Remember: SPEED, SURPRISE, and VIOLENCE OF ACTION. Give your enemy no time to counter or plan against your move, the only option for them must be to surrender completely or die. Lets also not forget to keep that head on a swivel.

        Hmm 4 thumbs down, must be the way I said it because no one refuted anything I said. The truth isnt very pretty or sugar coated and a hard pill to swallow. Care to expand on what I said isn’t true? I guess I need to write with less hostility it just irks me that so many people can’t understand or see what imo a 5 year old should be able to.

          Yes it is a good video but there is a lot more to it than what is in it. The creatures at the top of the pyramid are dark occultists (occult= hidden) with knowledge of many things including how to control and enslave humans. If you liked that vid then check out Micheal Tsarion’s work, it will expand on it a lot. I recommend 2012 the future of humanity. Also check out Mark Passio. just remember, KNOW YOUR ENEMY OR YOU WILL FAIL!

      I usually don’t get to deep into the comments, as the NSA reads them all, and as a choice, I don’t want everyone knowing my thoughts, but this got me thinking, it is time to get active, it is time to show that we are here.
      You wanted some ideas, here you go… Teach your children to NEVER file taxes!! The tyranny withers and dies without our blood. File EXEMPT, and don’t pay them a dime, ever. Don’t file, even if you could get a return, remember, YOU earned that money, keep it, spend it on food, land, a well, a sensible, reliable structure. Take the time to buy a physical library of books, real pages, not kindle or ebooks. Spend more time with your kids, not in front of the TV, if your going to go clean your rifle, take them and teach them… what happens if you lose a hand? Teach them how to find and purify water… teach them how to cook meals…. take them on long walks or hikes, what happen when they take away all the gas? Yeah sure they can come to you en masse, but you are trapped, get used to walking friends, because we will all be doing alot more of it real soon.
      Remember, share what you know! Don’t be a Christian, Muslim, Jew, Black, White, Red, or Yellow. The System is going to screw us ALL over in the end. We need to remember that we are human first… If they go crazy, and come for you, your family, and your network of support… put them down like rabid dogs. Life is unfair, but the more we get out now, the larger the network, and the less the effect of collapse….

      Well…to take back a nation taken over by commies…. first you fire them off…you don’t hire them, you rise their rents. You have then a hard time at every turn.

      THE COMMIES ARE THE DEMS…JUST LOOK AT DETROIT…A CITY RUN BY DEMS.
      THAT is the end game of what will become of the United States.

      SO.. hide your wealth. If you create a business…automation is key…don’t hire any commie dems.

      All you fuckers that want to disarm us… Yeah… if all collapses….and you have to eat human flesh…then just look at the unarmed dems. ha I’m so joking here..but a funny thought.

      but you’re WAY ahead of me in the ideas you present. Thanks for writing this, it was inspirational.

      And I by all means advocate non-violence. Mostly because I think that those that fight for liberty should be alive to enjoy it.

      This whole thing is getting more then I can contend with and with that in mind maybe I just need to stop the world and get off or somehow make it go away and be a bear; because if you are a bear you get to hibernate. You do nothing but sleep for 6 months. I could deal with that. Before you hibernate, your’re suppose to eat yourself stupid. I could deal with that too. If your a bear you birth your your children (who are the size of walnuts) while your sleeping and wake up to half grown cute cuddly cubs. I could definitely deal with that. If your a bear your mate EXPECTS you to wake up growling. He EXPECTS that you have hairy legs and excess body fat. Yep…..I wanna be a bear.

      My reason for the above statements are fighting and using nasty words amoing ourselves isn’t going to get much accompilished, we are on the tail end of a downward spiral and we may just as well get along and work together because fussing with each other is getting us nowhere. chill out and get it done or go hibernate.

      Thanks for another story to show my beloved when I’m asked, again, why we left Portland and why we don’t go back. What’s really crazy is that people jaywalk there ALL THE TIME. Bicyclists ride down the bus-only lane and flip the bird to he bus drivers when they honk. No police response. Leave it to the police to chose a working man to go after and not some patcholi-princess street dweller.

        Burnside on the Gresham end is probably alittle bit better. But agree, the once beautiful Oregon has been ramrodded by weirdos.

        Medford was a working man’s town. Lumber gone, just yuppies.

          I grew up in Portland. The Portland police are much worse than people think. If you really want a better view of how they act towards the citizens, got to
          http://www.portlandcopwatch.org/. They will beat people to death in broad daylight, in front of 30 witnesses and walk away without remorse. They routinely intimidate elderly citizens. The vast majority of what Portland police do to people never makes the news…trust me, I know first hand.

          There was a show called “American Detective” with ex-Multnomah County Sheriff John Bunnell, that quit filming in Portland after a major drug bust was trashed, when a few common Portland citizens spotted the film crew on the street and brought the fiasco to a halt before it even got started.

          I earned my lumps, quietly assisting “less than literate” victims of Portland police file coherent complaints for over two decades. Getting a Portland police officer reassigned to another area or another police dept is no easy task, but I did it, and paid dearly for it.

          Portland police corruption goes way back, even before the days of Mayor Neil Goldschmidt and the rise of the Oregon Dept. of Corrections. These are topics in which I am well-versed.

      I agree that civil disobedience should be a part of the strategy. However, our problems with this government is huge. The “contract” has been broken. We no longer have an obligation to them.
      I would like to say, at this point in time, I still respect the form of government established initially, a Constitutional Republic. I also see merit in no government. I think communities would natually revert to a more tribal system perhaps similar to the Iroquis. However, I require more study and understanding regarding this.
      Back to the problem at hand. If people are serious about Liberty, we need to identify the core problems.
      I believe the love of money IS the ROOT of all evil. Let’s start chopping away – Starve the Beast.

      Trying to predict WTSHTF is like winning POWERBALL. Too many variables. And each Variable have Sub-Variables.
      TPTB have infinite resources to draw from and as many plans to be used against us. The only uncertainty is the amount of resistance and its duration. You can be sure that protection of the business sector is of prime importance. If I was to plan to protect such an area I would wait till the city empties out. Most major cities are void of people on the weekend as most commute to work. Less people to interfere with operations and can effectively choke the cities entrances. Leaving the other portions to burn. Supplies being transported by truck or helicopter for support of defenses. As a base of operations, then they can reach out to secure the outer sections by force. One at a time. Command and control comes to mind. Deplete and deny the resources. Have them fight among themselves.
      Some of the things I think about is what happens to all the social services? Food Banks and City Rescue Missions. Fire and Rescue. Water and Electricity. What would happen if they shut off water and electricity, like the SWAT does on a barricaded individual. No gas at the pump. Lights, air condition, refrigeration and heat gone! How will people react? The difference is in a Natural Disaster people come together. When events are done deliberately or restricted, they become violent.
      All I can say is that we are too fractured in our religious beliefs, our politics, acceptable behavior, our History, our ethic background, our race and our social standing.
      Hell, awaits us.

      They cannot put a gun to your head and force you to buy an airline ticket.

      I have not flown since the TSA put the Backscatter machines in airports, even though the destinations I would fly to never had them. The machines are now gone, but I still refuse to fly until the TSA is gone.

      If Americans realized, as the French do, the power of the boycott, then the TSA would indeed be gone in a matter of weeks, after the blue shirts were fired for running through empty airports and groping eachother for fun.

      But, they won’t. I have realized that a great many of my countrymen are content to wait for the next NFL, NHL or MLB season, or go into hock to bring the kids to Disney. Or sell themselves to some corporation for a pittance of a salary so that they can practice contrived and unworkable policies and converse in corporatespeak and tell themselves lies.

      They spend all of their time watching the shell game.

      This is a great article, but mostly, those who wish to challenge the status quo are on our own until the rest of those leading lives of quiet desperation and make believe wake up to what is happening.

      We can vote. We can cry and wring our hands. We can keep electing a new politrash to replace the old politrash. Until patriots begin to take the streets and destroy the money making enterprises, no one will change a thing. Until we become skilled in guerrilla war and until the feds understand this little flare-up they will be experiencing, will not end; they will do nothing. They will, however, change or collapse. We can do it. We can bring down this Politically correct, socialist, Marxist nightmare and put people in jail. Freedom!
