10 Preposterous Examples That Orwell’s 1984 Police State Is Alive & Well

Think

There has been an undercurrent of corruption growing in certain sections of Big Government.  Even Orwell might be shocked by such government overreach.

For America being a country that’s supposed to be the paragon of Freedom, one must wonder askance about the developments that have taken place below.  Yes, not all cops carry out such overreach, but the one’s that do should be called out for it.

The fact that such ludicrous things even happen show something is amiss, and the fact that the mainstream media doesn’t cover these instances should be a clue.

#1:  One would think water, that thing that comes from rain, would be free.  Apparently not.  An Oregon man was forced to destroy his pond in a clear example of downright insanity.

#2:  Donating food and helping others is a great thing.  It is a virtuous act.  So why is it that in Florida Activists that were carrying out a “Food Not Bombs” were arrested for feeding the homeless – AGAIN?  So much for land of the Free.

#3:  Self sufficiency is something America used to be a pioneer in.  In fact, our ancestors thrived off of it.  This is one area that most modern individuals lack, and lack enormously in modern times.  So, one would figure that when someone does strive to become self sufficient, they should be applauded, no?  Say, you want to make natural products – that sounds like a good idea doesn’t it?  Recently, an Amish farmer faces 68 years in prison for theft murder making natural products.  Let that one sink in.

#4:  In one place, walking your child home from school and driving while caffeinated are now felony crimes.  No more comment.

#5:   Police are even being caught not uploading body cam footage.  One has to wonder why they’re not doing their job, especially when they work ostensibly to help the public.  It’s ironic because that very footage they need to upload is the very footage that will help in keeping them accountable to the public.

#6:  Police have also been caught spying on journalists attempting to uncover leaks.

#7:  The police state is escalating so such levels that merely filming the protests for the pipeline protest can get you facing 45 years in prison.

#8:  In Florida, again, residents are even being fined for growing vegetables on their own property.

#9:  Let’s think outside the box now.  When is the last time you heard of someone arrested for dancing?  No, really, for dancing.  What follows in the video in the link is disturbing considering nothing wrong was taking place.  This could have easily happened to me, any of my friends, perhaps you, or heaven knows anyone else.  Even those recording the video speak out against this glaring example of a police state.

#10:  Victoria Bloch explains here that she got arrested for selling products at a farmers market.  To watch her interview please click on the link.

As we can gather, a few of these examples target self-sufficiency.  Becoming self sufficiency is one of the greatest acts of rebellion and individual can carry out, because the individual ceases to be a cash cow for the system and that allows for greater latitude through life and finances.

It’s vital to realize what is taking place, because the above examples are not the only ones that showcase the growing Police State presence in America.

While it might seem ludicrous, and some of these very people would have never in a million years thought the above circumstances could ever happen, it has happened.  People need to find out, because if these issues do not get exposed they will never stop and only grow unabated.

Freedom requires responsibility.  And if we are to enjoy those Freedoms we have, we need to be cognizant so we can act responsibly.

Have courage, stand up for what is right, even if you stand alone.

Sometimes, all it takes is one person to change the tide of life.

Let’s each strive to become that person and bring about resounding change.

The future either flourishes with us, or dwindles with us.  It’s our choice.

Each of us individually should strive to make that choice a great one.

Everything you search for on Google is now easily obtained by police

If you thought that your search engine history was private, think again. It’s not. Or, at least, it may not be, depending on whether or not you’re under police investigation.

According to The Free Thought Project, a court in Minnesota has recently ruled that an entire city’s search history should be made available to police, an Orwellian first as far as anyone can tell. It may well mark the beginning of the end of Internet freedom.

Cops in Edina, Minn., were granted a warrant that requires search giant Google to provide search history information and the names of everyone in the city who utilized specific search terms between Dec. 1, 2016, and Jan. 7, 2017. (RELATED: BOMBSHELL Investigation: Google An “Information Dominance” Front For The CIA)

Now mind you, this case isn’t about a nuclear bomb plot, a planned act of terrorism, a major jewel heist or child porn. Rather, ARS Technica notes, the case is about alleged wire fraud worth less than $30,000. But if Google honors the warrant, like it probably will have to do since the warrant is a legal document issued by a valid court, that would be a horrible precedent moving forward because it could be duplicated by departments all over the country.

ARS Technica reports that police investigators are looking for an online picture of a person with the same name as a local victim of financial fraud because said image was found on a phony passport that was utilized to fool a credit union into transferring some $28,500 out of a man’s account who takes up residence in Edina. Someone faxed the fake passport to the credit union as ‘proof’ of identity under a spoofed phone number to mimic the victim’s phone, the search warrant notes.

The Free Thought Project reported further:

The ominously worded warrant makes some chilling demands — all over a small fraud case.

A Google search, the warrant application says, as reported by Ars Technica, reveals the photo used on the bogus passport. The image was not rendered on Yahoo or Bing, according to the documents. The warrant commands Google to divulge “any/all user or subscriber information”—including e-mail addresses, payment information, MAC addresses, social security numbers, dates of birth, and IP addresses—of anybody who conducted a search for the victim’s name.

What makes this warrant so worrisome, especially if Google complies with it, is that it seems to go far beyond the legal standard of probable cause. While it appears likely that something illegal may have happened, it’s obvious that most, if not all, of the people in Edina are not guilty of doing anything wrong. Granted, cops have to investigate but how can a court reasonably assume that everyone in an entire city is under suspicion, thereby satisfying the legal standard of probable cause?

That seems a stretch, to say the least.

What also seems very likely, then, is that police will obtain evidence that may implicate other criminal activity, and while you may applaud that, understand that such overly broad searches were never envisioned by our founding fathers, hence the adoption of the Fourth Amendment, which is supposed to protect against “unreasonable searches.” (RELATED: BREAKING: Police Are Now Routinely Taking Items Out Of Unlocked Cars To ‘Protect’ Citizens From Theft)

The Fourth Amendment originally enforced the notion that ‘each man’s home is his castle,’ secure from unreasonable searches and seizures of property by the government,” Cornell University Law School notes in describing the purpose of the amendment. “It protects against arbitrary arrests, and is the basis of the law regarding search warrants, stop-and-frisk, safety inspections, wiretaps, and other forms of surveillance, as well as being central to many other criminal law topics and to privacy law.”

So it seems apparent a city-wide “search” of Google records is far and away outside the scope of what is allowable under the Constitution. It’s hard to tell what is worse – that a police department would make such a request or that a court would grant it.

Modern FBI Is An Outgrowth of the Gestapo

March 9, 2017

The FBI: The Silent Terror Of The Fourth Reich … Lately, there’s been a lot of rhetoric comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. The concern is that a Nazi-type regime may be rising in America … That process, however, began a long time ago. … In fact, following the second World War, the U.S. government recruited Hitler’s employees, adopted his protocols, embraced his mindset about law and order, implemented his tactics in incremental steps, and began to lay the foundations for the rise of the Fourth Reich. -Rutherford Institute

The FBI’s Fourth Reich began as a result of German efficiency and has by now silently taken over all aspects of the FBI. So impressed was the FBI with German authoritarianism, that the FBI recruited at least 1,000 thousand Nazis over the years and especially at the end of the war.

While thousands of Nazis were allowed to immigrate and were given disguised identifies, Jews were turned away from the US at the same time. They were supposedly considered a security risk.

American taxpayers have been helping to support these ex-Nazis ever since. Those who have attempted to expose the US’s involvement in harboring Nazis have been attacked by the FBI, harassed and more recently declared a threat to national security.

As if the government’s covert, taxpayer-funded employment of Nazis after World War II wasn’t bad enough, U.S. government agencies—the FBI, CIA and the military—have fully embraced many of the Nazi’s well-honed policing tactics, and have used them repeatedly against American citizens.

Indeed, with every passing day, the United States government borrows yet another leaf from Nazi Germany’s playbook: Secret police. Secret courts. Secret government agencies. Surveillance. Censorship. Intimidation. Harassment. Torture. Brutality. Widespread corruption. Entrapment. Indoctrination. Indefinite detention.

These are not tactics used by constitutional republics, where the rule of law and the rights of the citizenry reign supreme. Rather, they are the hallmarks of authoritarian regimes, where the only law that counts comes in the form of heavy-handed, unilateral dictates from a supreme ruler who uses a secret police to control the populace.

It is the FBI more than any other agency that wields these virtually unbridled powers domestically. It tactics include, “surveillance, disinformation, blackmail, entrapment, intimidation, harassment and indoctrination, governmental overreach, abuse, misconduct, trespassing, enabling criminal activity, and damaging private property” … and more.

Post-9/11 Congress has virtually abdicated responsibility, partially because by law, the FBI is supposed to collect a dossier on them. The FBI pretty much does as it wants beyond the reach of laws that would limit its abusive power or make it subject once more to constitutional limits.

It illegally operates over 50 offices abroad, though its brief is supposedly only domestic. It has set up its own illegal repository of “profiles of tens of thousands of Americans and legal residents who are not accused of any crime.” Increasingly this database is available to private entities for routine background checks.

The agency has a budget of over $8 billion and issues tens of thousands of National Security Letters that collects financial records and other personal information on a very questionable basis.

Law enforcement agencies also using social media tracking software to monitor Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts. Moreover, secret FBI rules also allow agents to spy on journalists without significant judicial oversight.

Much like the Gestapo’s ability to profile based on race and religion, and its assumption of guilt by association, the FBI’s approach to pre-crime allows it to profile Americans based on a broad range of characteristics including race and religion.

The FBI  these days can label almost anyone a domestic terrorist and you may be marked as one if you:

-express libertarian philosophies (statements, bumper stickers)
-exhibit Second Amendment-oriented views (NRA or gun club membership)
-read survivalist literature, including apocalyptic fictional books
-show signs of self-sufficiency (stockpiling food, ammo, hand tools, medical supplies)
-fear an economic collapse
-buy gold and barter items
-subscribe to religious views concerning the book of Revelation
-voice fears about Big Brother or big government
-expound about constitutional rights and civil liberties
-believe in a New World Order conspiracy

You don’t have to be vocal about such views. The FBI will come to you, as it routinely infiltrates groups and businesses of all kinds. If you have “anti-government” sentiments you can easily be caught up in FBI investigations and blackmail and entrapment.

In the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks the FBI started to create “forward  leaning—preventative—prosecutions” that ensnare and utilize informants who are given permission to break the law to bring the case to a successful conclusion. Sometimes these informants first commit crimes that get them caught by the FBI, and some speculate even “mind control” may be experimented with.

We have our own experiences with this sort of FBI intimidation. One of us was actually picked up by FBI wiretaps involving 9/11 information. The phone tapping led to the FBI – or some similar – agency writing us emails suggesting that we cooperate with them in investigating off shore activity that some involved in The Daily Bell were supposedly involved with.

The emails were signed by someone called Nalum and then more recently by someone who called himself “God.” These emails have kept up on and off for an incredible seven years now, which shows the extent of institutional memory. The group has even written an expose of supposed activities using a spurious author who supposedly has no affiliation with police work but obviously does.

Even more incredibly, the FBI, or whatever it is, has decided the way to expose The Daily Bell is via an accusation of Fake News. The Daily Bell has been put on a list of groups that are supposedly involved with producing Fake News, including The Drudge Report and others.

When the time comes, the Fake News accusations will be triggered and the article and other information they have gathered over seven years will be suddenly “discovered” and further publicized. The idea is to avoid exposing the initial methodology of the 9/11 wiretapping which was patently illegal and outrageous.

That is our “FBI” story which has led at least one of us to abandon the US and travel abroad, for which he later received a death threat suggesting he kill himself. This is a tactic the FBI has used since encouraging Martin Luther King Jr. to kill himself in a letter they sent him.

Conclusion: The article, finishes by explaining that “When and if a true history of the FBI is ever written, it will not only track the rise of the American police state but it will also chart the decline of freedom in America.” We can certainly vouch for that and for the FBI’s insatiable, illegal energy in pursuing people who are writing columns and articles it doesn’t like.

Ohio finds speed cameras “unconstitutional,” city forced to pay back millions

I’ve been involved in political commentary for almost ten years now, so naturally during that time I’ve read thousands upon thousands of political stories. What I’ve found is that the more I learn about our country, and the more I observe the modern day political climate, the more striking similarities I see between America and the George Orwell novel 1984.

We currently live in a country where “big brother” is no longer merely a concept inside a fiction book. From oppressive gun laws to the NSA tapping into private phone calls, federal databases to televisions that are capable of spying on you, it is nearly impossible to deny the fact that the size and scope of the government is expanding. (RELATED: This company has built a profile on every American adult in the country).

A relatively new piece of technology is speed cameras, which are beginning to pop up in cities and heavily populated areas across the country. These cameras are capable of detecting the speed of a passing vehicle. If the vehicle is speeding, the machine captures an image of the vehicle, which is clear enough to reveal the car’s color, type, make and license plate number. Additional information is also recorded, including the date and time of the offense, the direction in which the vehicle was traveling, the speed of the vehicle, the speed limit in the area, and even the lane that the vehicle was traveling in. But just because this technology is clearly advanced and capable of doing many things does not mean that it’s without flaws.

In 2013, a small group of lawyers in New Miami, Ohio, filed a lawsuit against the cities speed cameras, arguing that the technology was unconstitutional because they strip citizens of their due process rights. The cameras, created and set up by a private vendor called Optotraffic, would record the required information and then automatically send the driver a bill for up to $180 in the mail.

In total, Optotraffic was able to collect $3,066,523.00 from drivers passing through a small stretch of road on U.S. 127, which links Cincinnati with north parts of the state. Now, Judge Michael A. Oster Jr. of Butler County Court of Common Pleas has ruled that the city must pay back every cent of it.

“If the government has created an unconstitutional law/ordinance that has taken people’s money without affording them the necessary due process protections, should not justice demand, and the law require, restitution of that money to the people?” Judge Oster asked in his ruling. “Once the complexities of the law are analyzed, the answer is simple: yes.”

Although the city tried to fight the ruling in Ohio’s second highest court, in the end, Judge Oster’s ruling was so obvious that the Supreme Court didn’t even feel the need to get involved in the matter.

This wasn’t the first time that automated speed cameras have done a disservice to the people. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel had established the same system a couple of years ago to keep a watchful eye on the streets. Yet these cameras were improperly used, ticketing people at times when the cameras were supposed to be off and the warning signs were either confusing or flat out missing. As a result, the program improperly collected over $2.4 million in fines. Not only are these ticketing machines a violation of our civil liberties, but they also suck millions of dollars out of the pockets of American citizens, many of whom are already struggling as it is.

Upholding the law is certainly important – after all, without law and order our society would cave in on itself like a house of cards. But without the Constitution and our inalienable rights, we are in the dark. That’s why it is necessary to find ways to enforce the law, while also upholding the basic principles that America was founded on. (RELATED: Read more liberty news at Liberty.news)

Amish Farmer Faces 68 Years in Prison for Making Natural Product

Source: FreedomOutpost.com
Tim Brown
February 21, 2017

This is yet another reason why the Food and Drug Administration should be abolished.  A 56-year-old Amish farmer is now facing 68 years in federal prison because he made a natural health product.

Samuel Girod is the father of twelve and grandfather of 25.  He produces natural products in his own kitchen.  Since 2015, he has been facing a 12-count federal indictment.

WKYT reports:

Girod’s troubles started back in 2013 when someone reported his products to the state health department in Missouri.

A federal judge in Missouri put an injunction in place, banning Girod from making some of his products until he met certain conditions. Part of those conditions were inspections of the property where Girod made his products which is where Kentucky comes into play.

Girod’s makes his products on the family farm along Satterfield Lane in Bath County.

“I think everybody in the community has heard about it,” said Bath County resident, Suza Moody.  “I can’t even figure out what he has done wrong.  They live at the foot of the cross and the thought of one of them intentionally doing something wrong is outrageous.”

“They are just devastated. I mean when they brought him out in handcuffs. It was awful,” said family friend, Sally Oh.

One of his products is called Girod’s Chickweed salve.  It’s made with Rosemary, Beeswax, Olive Oil, Peppermint, chickweed, Eucalyptus, Lavender and Comfrey.

According to Ms. Oh, the FDS took issue with the labeling of the product.

It said ‘Chickweed Salve’ up top, then on down said ‘Cures Cancer,’ she explained.  “Which for some people it did, but he can’t say that. So he changed it to say ‘Healing Chickweed,’ but they said no you can’t say healing. So now it just says ‘Original Chickweed.'”

“I mean do you go to jail because you’ve messed up a label on a product?” asked Moody.  “I thought you went to jail because you did something bad. I mean he mislabeled something? I doubt he knew any better.”

Girod has been making the product for over 20 years and sold it in small convenience stores.

The Lexington Herald Leader reports, “The grand jury indicted Samuel A. Girod on a dozen charges, including conspiracy, distributing misbranded drugs and threatening a witness to try to keep business documents away from the grand jury. The witness-tampering charge, the most serious, carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.”

It’s also alleged that he did not register his facility with the FDA.  According to the FDA,

Dara Corrigan, associate commissioner for regulatory affairs for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and David M. Ketchmark, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced today that U.S. Marshals have seized drugs being held by Notions-n-Things Distribution of Bogard, Mo. Yesterday’s seizure follows a civil forfeiture complaint that was filed in the U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Mo.  Federal marshals seized more than 1,600 containers of products that allegedly violate FDA approval and labeling requirements.

U.S. District Judge Gary A. Fenner of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri signed the seizure order on Tuesday, March 27, 2012. The seizure covered three products: Chickweed Healing Salve, allegedly marketed as a skin cancer treatment containing comfrey; To-Mor-Gone, which allegedly claims to cure cancer and other diseases; and R.E.P., which allegedly claims to cure stress headaches and sinus infections, but contains no ingredient information on its label.

FDA requested the seizure, the complaint says, because the products claim to treat or cure diseases but have not received FDA approval, and are not exempt from such approval requirements. Moreover, the complaint says, the seized products contain ingredients that could cause toxic or allergic reactions in consumers sensitive to these ingredients. According to the federal complaint, Chickweed Healing Salve contains comfrey, which may increase the risk of systemic toxicity, and To-More-Gone contains bloodroot, a caustic, corrosive substance that produces a thick scar that can mask tumor recurrence. In addition, the seized products are “misbranded” under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.

Dara A. Corrigan, associate commissioner for regulatory affairs, said, ““Two important protections for the public are that a firm may not sell new drugs unless they have been tested and approved by FDA and a firm may not make false or unsubstantiated claims about drugs they sell.  When a firm disregards these protections, it not only violates the law but also creates a risk for consumers, who may rely on a bogus product and forego effective and proven treatment. FDA must and will take aggressive enforcement action.”

Oh, you mean like the FDA’s approval of this $7,800-a-month alleged lung cancer drug, which caused rashes and rarely worked?  Yeah, I understand completely now.

No one was injured or harmed by Girod’s product.  In fact, many people testify that they were helped by it.  Fine.  I ask the FDA how many drugs they approve that have tremendous side effects, including death, but they are just fine approving it, as long as it’s on the label.  How does that actually protect anyone?

The FDA should be abolished right along with the other unconstitutional agencies of the central government and Mr. Girod should be freed to live his life and make his product.  No crime was committed.  If someone believes that he committed fraud against them, that is what the courts are for and restitution could be made.  However, sending this man to prison is not justice, it’s hypocrisy when the FDA is allowed to basically engage in far worse behavior. Buyer beware, I say.
