It doesn’t help that the MADD maniacs have helped to start random drunk driving checkpoints. THAT shouuld have been stopped long ago. I frequently count how many evil drunk drivers they catch in my area. It always seems to be about 1% of drivers in a checkpoint. No right to freely travel without prob=ving one’s innocence for what, 1% of drivers?

Should have taken his picture; and then told him he is going to be reported to law enforcement as he was acting suspicious.
See what he would have done then!

Or you could have really had fun with him. Tell him; yes you have a lot of guns you could sell him. He has to meet you at a certain place and time to see them.

All we really need to do is face the fact that Islam is not a religion, but a subversive and totalitarian political system.

It all stems from GW Bush telling us that Islam is the “Religion Of Peace”.

18 USC § 2385 - ADVOCATING OVERTHROW OF GOVERNMENT

Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or

According to the video this is more about recruiting truckers to report suspicious activity they observe

Most people when seeing something really odd or suspicious would make a call anyway

The state promoting snitching on one another is one of the hallmarks of a police state...

It's one of the reason the reunification of East and West Germany was far more difficult than thought

East Germans had a built in distrust of being completely honest thinking it might be used against in the future...

Well, seems to me bue and train passengers have either been searched all ready, or will be. he fact that they sexually assault Americans at airports didn’t seem to be enough for anyone to put a stop to it, so they keep creeping further and further. Stadiums, malls etc have also been called for by the Feds.

“But it makes us feel safer...”

How I detest that hogwash people use as an excuse and the people went along with it.

Personally, my blood pressure goes up when I have to stop at a fruit inspection checkpoint on the California border, wouldn’t want to be trying to sneak in illegal kumquats.

“Hate to be the one to tell you this, but the probable cause in that you are driving on their highway.”

I trust this is sarcasm.

Amendment IV:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

I guess Big Sis gets to sidestep this now?

Whatever...I think there is a good chance of a nuke going off from a truck being used, so I do not see this as a problem.
However, still allowing muslim’s to enter the country and the continuing infiltration at the southern border makes these efforts almost null and void.

Has anyone else seen this type of activity where you live and under what law can they randomly stop a car and have a dog walk around it and sniff for drugs?

Similar to a DWI checkpoint - I encountered a drug specific roadblock driving through a small town in western New York state. This was a dozen years ago or so - the dissolution of liberty vis-a-vis the 4th ammendment has been going on for decades.

The roadblocks are not random though. Since they stop everyone and give everyone the same hairy eyeball, it's ok right? Equality under the of the law? That's the thinking of politicians and law enforcement.

>No grounds....just the way it is.

So then, what you’re saying is: “Due process is dead”.

>They have to confer up the chain of command to determine if there might be probable cause, even consult a judge.

Might be? Either there is, or there isn’t; and in the case of asserting one’s right to be free from [unreasonable] searches, it is utterly unreasonable that the assertion of such right should be the “probable cause.” (Furthermore, the 4th amendment requires that WARRANTS be supported by probable cause, not that there should be any sort of search committed w/o a warrant.)

>Follow up question is “am I being detained?”

No, the follow-up is a statement: “If you aren’t arresting me, I’m leaving.”

>Follow up question (if yes) is “how about my Miranda warning?”

At that point, the follow-up is ALSO a statement: “You are in violation of US Code Title 18, Section 242; it is a felony, and I demand to speak to your supervisor.” ( http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/242 )

>Inconvenience can—and should—flow both ways.

It’s not inconvenience, it’s illegal.

I get pulled over into one of these and you can damn well bet I’m telling them to bring a DOT officer over to give me Level 2 or 3 paperwork, and if they open my cargo they are giving me a level 1 or special level 4. I’m also calling company legal and company security as soon as my cargo seal gets broken.

Bingo. Not only is it an inconvenience & liability to them (TSA/LEOs), but it is only the responsible thing to do considering that the cargo is only under your care and it's owners should know when ANYTHING happens to it that should compromise its manifest (or timely delivery).

Alex generally does a good job and is accurate THESE DAYS.

In the past he has perped drama of fear on people,knowing he is doing it. He did it on the build up of hysteria to y2k claiming there was chaos on New Years when there was no chaos. He did it a couple of years ago in cahoots with one of his freaky hollywierd pals.

When he can back up what he is saying with video, documents and other sources, I take him seriously. I appreciate him going after TSA’s airport sex abuse and making some videos go viral when they first broke out their current routine.

The video discussing TSA above is taken from local news broadcasts, and never once even referred to Jones.

Thank you, George W. Bush and the Republican Congress at the time. The "War on Terrorism" has naturally become a war on us, due to the typical and expected mission creep.

You're right - any thing we do to protect ourselves can be turned around by Democrats and used against us. God, democrats are awful.

We said as much back when Bush was pushing this. We were called "tin foilers", "conspiracy theorists", and worse.

Like we were told the CIA didn't intentionally give hundreds of totally unsuspecting Americans LSD in the 1950s. All while government agents watched the innocent through two way mirrors, as they winked and nodded as these people thought they were going completely insane.

If the government is capable of this, they are capable of anything.

And what will TSA do if they find an illegal alien driver with no license or other documents?

At the airport, TSA checks licenses or passports before going through screening. This is after the airlines have already checked the documents.

On the highways, will TSA also check driver's licenses or passports? If they find an illegal alien, will they take them into custody and report them to their sister organization, ICE?

Or, as is more likely, they will release the illegal aliens to avoid the paperwork and politics, and just harrass citizens?

Nuclear bomb? ....lol..

If that's the case, they better stop all motor homes, trucks with shells, buses, SUV's...Vehicle towing boats, etc. In fact, you could theoretically put a nuclear bomb in a normal sized car. How about private aircraft?

You'd better get on the phone to biggov and warn them.
