We are 98% Soviet Union now.

The difference is, their regime was corrupt and incompetent. Ours is deadly serious and enjoys the support of 90% of the sheeple.

I couldn’t agree with you more. Outstanding post.

And, we’ve already had over a decade of acclimating the sheep to be meek, when faced by mail-room clerks in TSA. And a couple of years of teaching them to put their hands up in a position of surrender, all while being irradiated.

We’re way too far gone. I would have had some hope if say, everyone in the prison camp, I mean, airport, lines, had sat down all at once, in protest. But no, no one even wanted to take a stand there.

The leeches and moochers are quickly overtaking the few of us still working in the private sector. That’s what isn’t “fair” — that those of us who studied, worked hard, worked our way up, etc. are and will be punished.

“The “War on Terrorism” has naturally become a war on us, due to the typical and expected mission creep. “

The same with the war on drugs and poverty. It seems like
every time our government declares war on something it
winds up costing us our rights and freedoms. And both
parties seem to be in on it.

I don’t even drink and I hate those checkpoints. If I ever came across one and had time, I would turn around.

Those of us living within 100 miles of the border are subjected to interrogation at any time also. Yes, 100 miles. For all the good THAT does. The immigration laws have largely been unenforced forever, in order to dumb down the nation even more with more third-worlders.

Heaven forbid you take a drive/vacation along the southern Texas border. It is Stasi down there, en masse.

For years, I read that the majority of Russians have a favorable opinion of Stalin. I didn't believe it. Thought it was a bunch of commie lies. But after what I've seen in the past 15 years or so here, I believe it. I'm not predicting purges, camps, or a Holocaust. But if they happen, they will be extremely popular.

See ya’ in Gitmo’!

If they stop me with out probable cause>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Unfortunately, TSA apparently does not need probable cause.The border is wherever they say it is.

*************************************

Before you conclude that a “suspicionless search” is obviously and by definition illegal—since police need probable cause to search you—that’s not exactly right. The legal standard is that citizens are protected from searches when they have a reasonable expectation of privacy. Presumably TSA, with the backing of the President and Congress, has concluded that you don’t have a reasonable expectation of privacy in a train station (although even the TSA blog addmitted that the stunt in Savannah was out of bounds).

None of which decreases our discomfort with the idea that traveling by definition now opens you up to random searching. That’s what it means, after all, to declare that all airports, highways, ports, bus stations, train stations, and so on are fair game.

"What you are saying is going to get you a beatdown or a burst of gunfire or both."

Minds trained for combat (combat type) are different, where the training was well done. We know that we won't live forever. Doing right is important, so we'll yell at those who subvert the supreme law of our land, even if yelling by non-Muslims is outlawed (re. exclusive pass for calls to Muslim prayers in some of our cities).

I hear you, SandRat.

This is an old video, done in Tennessee for truckers, I remember it reported here previously. Haven’t seen any other reports of this happening again or anywhere else... appears joint task force one time occurrence or dry run?

Are there any updated videos or episodes of TSA invading cars?

"This will be a stupid post when and if a nuke goes of that is in a big rig that was not checked out and it wipes out an entire city!"

Foreign guerrilla assassins (screw the politically correct labels) cannot be stopped by intensified civilian policing against our general citizenry. We don't have enough foreign debt money or tolerance for that. Either fight a high intensity foreign war against the Ayrabs and Amalekites, or the consequences will come for us all.

The squishy policies of our bipartisan political regulators is leading us to default and national weakness. But have it your way, and see as to which class of Americans will survive a decade or more of Soviet-like human rights violations, excessive spending by the rich, lame and lazy and lack of production forced by their thieving, anti-competition policies at every level.

We drove through NM (from TX) on our way to AZ for Thanksgiving and went through an immigration/drug checkpoint at 1:00 AM. They had the dogs out circling most cars but after they shined their flashlights in on us and saw two kids zonked in back, they sent us on through and didn’t walk the dogs around us. It was rather maddening having flashlights shined in our eyes while they asked a few questions and we couldn’t see their faces. I certainly didn’t offer up the fact that I had guns & ammo on board.

We drove from San Antonio to Tucson, visiting national and state parks along the way.

In one day, TX and NM alone, we went through four checkpoints, interrogated at the first three (”where have you been,” “what have you been doing,” “was it hot there” [trick question about Big Bend], finally, “are you citizens”). Dogs sniffing at two of the Stasi-points. All in the primary line.

We were in my husband’s F-150 — which has a clear camper shell in the back and non-tinted windows.
We hardly had any luggage with us, just a bag or two, a cooler, nothing stacked high or hidden. We weren’t grungy or anything like that, no endangered bird feathers (God-forbid, I was with a friend once who didn’t know the feather hanging up might be “endangered”). No alcohol, forbidden fruit, etc.

It was truly appalling, to not be able to go sightseeing in the beautiful southwest without “papers, please” every few feet.

The world elites kept/keep the borders open on purpose for multiple reasons, one of which is to further intimidate, harass, and delay innocent Americans. (We missed making it to one historic park because of all the delays.)

You are a stone liar.

If you are from Texas, you have obviously never left the comfort of the suburbs. Head down to South Texas, and you will come across checkpoints at some point, and well inland I might add. Hell, about 5 years ago I've had BP come on to my family's land and question what we were doing on private property. Keep in mind that BP doesn't give a damn if illegals keep trashing our hunting cabins and the buildings on the outer reaches of our ranch. God forbid if we are doing some work on a simple fence. Unfortunately Texas is a state where the political leaders are just fine with this crap. Sure, they bitched about Bush and now Obama, but when push comes to shove, they side with the Department of Homeland Security every time.

I'm surprised at your handle, given that you joined in January. Be careful what you wish for - Texas is a minority-majority state, whites make up less than half the state and are about to be passed up by Hispanics, and the Democrats have been catering to them, not to mention all of the liberals from California, New England, and Florida that have been moving in....

Last straw? Yeah, right. Who is standing up to this unconstitutional abuse of power? Nobody. Lots of big talk on internet message boards/forums, and loudmouths like Jones crying it on the airwaves (at least where he is on the air).

Yet the crickets chirp. America, as a people, has lost its backbone. The spirit of Liberty that so filled the hearts of our founding fathers and the thousands that spilled their blood for the foundation of this nation has grown distant. My personal belief is that it is directly related to how this nation has become filled with hubris in place of the spirit of Liberty. America has grown fat on the teat of public entitlements. The majority of americans are reliant on the government in some form or another, and essentially 50% pay absolutely nothing in support of this nation.


Amen to that, I remember when Bush and his administration started pushing for all kinds of things to "fight the war on terror", and more than a few FReepers were trying to raise the alarm and say that maybe we ought to be careful about all of this homeland security crap. They, like most Conservatives, were ignored.

The result was that Bush expanded the power, size, and scope of the federal government, and then turned it over to Obama. We all knew that when all of this homeland security crap was being proposed, that it would come back to bite us in the ass and that eventually a liberal with a (D) instead of an (R) next to his name would be in the White House at some point. And then comes Obama. Obama he looks around at all that George Bush has wrought and decides he can expand the government a little more. And then somebody will come after Obama and do the same. Doesn't matter if they have an (R) or (D) next to their names, Republicans created this DHS/TSA nightmare under Bush, and they have shown they have no intentions of trying to put the genie back in the bottle. Haven't heard Republican leaders, Boehner, Romney, anybody else saying that we ought to put the brakes on and go back to a more limited government and rethink the DHS/TSA crap.

Within a few generations, our grandchildren's grandchildren will be cursing us.

That is, if they realized what we have given away.

In my area the Border Patrol sets up a road block, stops all vehicles and runs the drug dog around some/all depending on the stop. It has been to court many times, just as DUI checkpoints have. I think it has something to do with stopping everyone as opposed to random stops. BUT, BP within 50 miles of the border also does a lot of random stops with/without dogs and asks to search sometimes. Supposedly the government, especially BP has extraordinary powers within 50 miles of border.

Border Patrol, on I-10, east of El Paso, both times.

First time, I was driving a new car I bought in NM - a 2005 Mustang GT Convertable, that I got for $15k less than I could have in Virginia. Brand new. Man, I loved that car. When I got it home, first thing my wife did, was run out and slap my daughter’s baby seat in it.

Peeing on her tree, she was.

Second time, I was tired of flying - so I took the old MPV (Junker) to NM. Hey, it got better milage than the mustang!

Sure as heck, random border patrol stop on I-10, in the middle of texas.

I go through check points 3 or 4 times a week in my job. Anything within 150 miles is considered a border check point,it's the law and has been for as long as I can remember. I know dozens of farmers/ranchers from Eagle Pass to El Paso.
I've been "hit on" by drug dogs more than once and that can get ugly quick but never to violence. Usually it's a really animated conversation with the dog handler until his supervisor hears enough and pulls him off.
I have two nephews that are BP and they are ruled with a bureaucratic iron fist which is not so bad when you see the quality of recruits they're getting now days. (They're words,not mine.)
Vandalism to outbuildings on farms and ranches is not just a border problem. Either secure it or expect it. Up in the panhandle they break in to cook dope.
As to my handle,I don't think it's if but when. A nation divided cannot stand,remember.
I think you'd be surprised how it would turn out but what do I know? I've just been in Texas all my life.

There were border patrol check points in New England up until about 2008, I had been stopped many times, likely about 14 or 15 in all. This was about 230 miles south of the Canada/US border on I 91 South, always at the same rest stop , where they waived us off the highway into it, and checked everyone in 4 lanes of traffic , then back out onto the Highway. At other times the checks were organized right on the Interstate itself.Always Border Patrol.

They asked for ID ( Drivers Licence) and passports if they were not US citizens.. They were stopping everyone at those checkpoints, everybody had to go through them.

Its as if they wanted to double check people they had already let into the country.

I did not resent these border patrol checks under Bush. However, these TSA freaks are civilians who do not have to take an oath to uphold the constitution. I would not like stopping for these TSA freaks. They are Obama’s “brown shirts” IMHO. Watch them in the future to see their evolution in use of firearms training , crowd control, and mass transport of FEMA prisoners, especially via rail. I do not put it beyond Obama at all to seek out a “final solution” to his definition of “racial and ethnic conflict.”

Good Read ( I keep publishing it):

Same thing happened to us when we went just three weekends ago to the Hoover dam...

I had my friggin’ pocket knife (in my pocket, it is just one of those things you keep in your pocket and don’t think anything about till something like this occurs)...

I was told in the busy line that I’d either have to walk back ALLLL the way to the tour bus and leave it their or they would confiscate my private ptoperty...

They do these checks at Old Ironsides as well...

We still had a great time visiting the dam, and didn’t have any other incidents on the trip...But it still left a taste in my mouth I would have rather not been subjected too...

Because we all know, you can do A LOT of damage if you have a pocket knife and the will to use it!!! At the Hoover dam.../sarc

I had a small multi-purpose tool, wrench and socket set in the camera bag we had go thru the machine when we eventually went thru the security checkpoint...Not a word was said about that device...

I feel that its going to take a lot of common sense to force a bunch of these people out of work...And that is a cryin’ shame...We should start at the top and work our way down the chain, checking IQ’s along the way and see how that all charts out...

Just my opinion...
