Monitoring America


projects.washingtonpost.com

Nine years after the terrorist attacks of 2001, the United States is assembling a vast domestic intelligence apparatus to collect information about Americans, using the FBI, local police, state homeland security offices and military criminal investigators.

The system, by far the largest and most technologically sophisticated in the nation's history, collects, stores and analyzes information about thousands of U.S. citizens and residents, many of whom have not been accused of any wrongdoing.

Sigh...

Surprise, surprise....not.

The irony in these things is how we see our current thugs in the 2 party crime family screaming from their podiums how any exposure of THEIR info and activities is 'dangerous' and should be punished to the nth degree, while they simultaniously snoop on ALL OF US.

"Do as we say, not as we do."

Our modern age appears to look like something more and more out of "V for Vendetta" or "1984" by the day.

I think it looks more like a return to Nazi Germany. More and more we see people herded into the hive mentality. The US government is really starting to stretch the envelop and it is about to break and snap in their face, I hope, otherwise the USA will soon be anohter Nazi Germany.

As Thomas Jefferson and James Madison pointed out, our rights are not lost all at once, but rather are nibbled away in bits and pieces due to our failure to stomp on laws that are clearly unconstitutional. It seemed to start with the seatbelt laws in the early 1970s.

These laws seem to be passed based upon the most misunderstood provision in the Constitution, the "general welfare" clause. It is really not a clause at all! "General welfare" first shows up in the Preamble and then as a preface to the enumerated powers of the Congress in order to outline the federal government's ability to tax the states for those enumerated "general welfare" powers NOTHING said about making LAWS just the ability to TAX.


Things to remember:


A traffic stop is a temporary detention of a driver of a vehicle by police to investigate a possible crime or civil infraction. In constitutional law in the United States, a traffic stop is considered to be a subset of the Terry stop; the standard set by the United States Supreme Court in Terry v. Ohio regarding temporary detentions requires only reasonable suspicion that a crime has occurred or is about to occur...


In Delaware v. Prouse, 440 U.S. 648 (1979), the United States Supreme Court ruled that the police stopping vehicles for no reason other than to check the drivers' licenses and registrations was unconstitutional.

In New York v. Belton, 453 U.S. 454 (1981), the United States Supreme court ruled that when a police officer has made a lawful arrest of a driver, he may search the passenger area of the vehicle without obtaining a warrant.

In Michigan Dept. of State Police v. Sitz, 496 U.S. 444 (1990), the United States Supreme Court ruled that the use of sobriety checkpoints was constitutional.

In Illinois v. Caballes, 543 U.S. 405 (2005), the United States Supreme Court held that the use of a drug-sniffing dog during a routine traffic stop does not unreasonably prolong the length of the stop so as to violate the Fourth Amendment.

In Arizona v. Gant, (2008), the United States Supreme Court ruled that an officer must demonstrate a threat to their safety or a need to preserve evidence related to the crime of arrest in order to search a vehicle pursuant to an arrest, distinguishing New York v. Belton.

"The 'routine traffic stop' from start to finish: too much 'routine,' not enough Fourth Amendment," Michigan Law Review 102, no. 8 (August 2004): 1843-1906. Professor LaFave points out that most courts have treated traffic stops like Terry stops, but the U.S. Supreme Court itself has never squarely decided the issue of whether traffic stops require probable cause or the lesser reasonable suspicion standard of Terry.

This goes along with, when i learned about the NWO, in 1994...the idea or theory or using UPC barcodes to label us all..that was the theory. Who knows, sounds like one day within the decade, the george orwellian mark is coming a reality. i refer too it, as the mark of the beast* and i dont wanna be marked! im kinda religious, those that have the mark, are lost to satan.
sounds more like the movie terminator to me. where hte machine had us all labeled for exterminiation. seems our government is up too the same thing, only thier not terminator robots. being cataloged, tracked simply for going out for a walk or run...its a huge violation of gods given freedom to us all. the way congress is goiong, maybe we should jsut nazi salute them when we see them drive by in the street...let em know how their making us feel

The build up began long before 9/11 . Its moving to the final stages now with the clampdown in place. Theyre not worried what the people think as majority of the public too apathetic to do anything to stop them. The dissenters identified and plans to handle them are in place. thus now theyre becoming more blatant in their agenda..
