Eavesdropping statues are being used to terrorize American citizens into not making those recordings of police brutality that have been appearing in the news in recent years. The man in this story tried to sue the police over the confiscation of some automobiles he owned. When he was refused a court reporter, he recorded the hearing himself. The result? He faces 75 years in prison. Recording public officials while they are on duty should never be illegal, but it is in 6 states. The fact that Illinois would seek to put this man away for life for attempting to document what he believed was illegal police activity is absolutely terrifying. Our country is getting closer every day to becoming a bureaucratci dictatorship. To see a local news story about this case, click here.

  1. America is becoming the new
    America is becoming the new Stalinist Russia and Nazi Germany mixed into one. It has ceased to be-come a Republic and has become an Empire.

  2. I heard a guy on the radio
    I heard a guy on the radio the other day use the phrase “fully weaponized military state” and it does seem true at times.

  3. Matthew Spaulding, a
    Matthew Spaulding, a Jefferson Iowa resident, told a local Des Moines TV station that a week ago yesterday, at 2AM police in SWAT gear smashed open his front door. He and his spouse were shaken from a sound sleep, with bright lights shining in their eyes, they were ordered to “get the f*** on the floor.” The cops ransacked his home. They didn’t tell him, but they were searching for drugs and guns. Spaulding went on to say, ““I got on the ground, and they put me in handcuffs. Then they threw my dad to the ground, and my dog Sadie was right here, sniffing my head. She was next to me. They shot her. The blood got on my face, and then she took off running behind me, and they shot her like three more times.” Matthew’s disabled father reported: “My son hit the ground. I hit the ground, but I didn’t make it too fast, so (the officer) jumped on the middle of my back, shoved his knee in and held a gun to the back of my head and handcuffed me. After they shot my first dog, my mom came out.” Then it was Matthew’s grandmother’s turn to be slammed to the ground. The cops were executing a search warrant, looking for drugs and a stolen Xbox video game system. They found nothing. No one was arrested. Two of the family dogs are dead.

    Or consider the case of Jose Guerena, an iraq war veteran whose home was raided by a SWAT team last May. Suspecting a robbery, he told his wife and four-year-old son to hide in a closet. He grabbed his AR-15 to defend himself. Five cops fired 71 shots before Guerena could get off even one.

    The state Supreme Court in Indiana ruled last May that if police unlawfully enter your home, you have no right to defend yourself. “We believe,” wrote the court’s majority, “a right to resist an unlawful police entry into a home is against public policy and is incompatible with modern Fourth Amendment jurisprudence.” No matter that the ruling contradicts a precedent dating back to 1215 and the Magna Carta.

    This has got to change…

  4. These so-called “Lawmakers”,
    These so-called “Lawmakers”, who enact laws that give the Police unlimited authority over American citizens need to have their heads chopped off, or better yet, need to be erased, permanently, from civilized society.

  5. The actions of these
    The actions of these incredible morons reminds me of the brutality and bloodthirstiness of the Imperial Japanese Army during the Second World War. If such crimes against humanity continue, how long will it be before we have a Bataan Death March right here in America?

    Keep and Bear Arms….

  7. Or Keep and Arm
    Or Keep and Arm Bears…either way…

    Right after I came back to this post, I happen to find this less than a minute later, what are the odds?:

    Quote from Website: “Senators Demand the Military Lock Up of American Citizens in a “Battlefield” They Define as Being Right Outside Your Window”

    While nearly all Americans head to family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, the Senate is gearing up for a vote on Monday or Tuesday that goes to the very heart of who we are as Americans. The Senate will be voting on a bill that will direct American military resources not at an enemy shooting at our military in a war zone, but at American citizens and other civilians far from any battlefield — even people in the United States itself.”

    CONGRESSIONAL RECORD
    Graham, Lindsey
    U.S. Senator
    [R] South Carolina, United States
    07:19:44 AND I WOULD ADD THAT SENATOR LIEBERMAN WOULD HAVE GONE FURTHER THAN YOU, AND NOBODY I RESPECT MORE THAN SENATOR LIEBERMAN, BUT TRYING TO FIND A BALANCED WAY.
    07:19:52 SO IN SUMMARY HERE, 1032, THE MILITARY CUSTODY PROVISION, WHICH HAS WAIVERS AND A LOT OF FLEXIBLE, DOESN’T APPLY TO AMERICAN CITIZENS.
    07:20:00 1031, THE STATEMENT OF AUTHORITY TO DETAIN, DOES APPLY TO AMERICAN CITIZENS AND IT DESIGNATES THE WORLD AS THE BATTLEFIELD, INCLUDING THE HOMELAND.
    07:20:10 ARE YOU FAMILIAR WITH THE CASE?
    07:20:13 PADILLA CASE.
    07:20:15 THAT IS A FEDERAL COURT CASE INVOLVING AN AMERICAN CITIZEN CAPTURED IN THE UNITED STATES THAT WAS HELD FOR CIVIL YEARS AS AN ENEMY COMBATANT?
    07:20:22 CIRCUIT.
    07:20:22 HIS CASE WENT TO THE FOURTH THE FOURTH CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS SAID AN AMERICAN CITIZEN CAN BE HELD BY OUR MILITARY AS AN ENEMY COMBATANT EVEN IF THEY’RE CAUGHT HERE IN THE UNITED STATES BECAUSE ONCE YOU JOIN THE ENEMY FORCES, THEN YOU PRESENT A MILITARY THREAT AND YOUR CITIZENSHIP IS NOT A SORT OF A GET-OUT-OF-JAIL-FREE CARD.
    07:20:48 THAT THE LAW OF THE LAND IS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN CAN BE HELD AS AN ENEMY COMBATANT.
    07:20:51 THAT WENT TO THE FOURTH CIRCUIT AND THAT, AS I SPEAK, IS THE LAW OF THE LAND.

  9. Watch Alex jones on youtube
    Watch Alex jones on youtube on that above bill they passed.
    It’s becoming very clear now that MOTK was indeed correct,the people at the top serve Evil or are pure Evil themselves and the minions that are masquerading as politicians and coming up with more prepostrous ways of condemning the average man to a lesser life will surely pay the price one day.
    The sad thing is we are all fragments of the same thing,what they do to us they do themselves.
