The “Officer Friendly” Police Fantasy

Police in Tempe, Arizona, announced plans in July for a “positive ticketing” campaign to pull over drivers who had violated no traffic laws. A Phoenix TV station reported that the police would give the people they targeted free soft-drink coupons for Circle K as a reward for their “good driving behavior.” Police in other areas have run similar programs in recent years but the TV news report on Tempe’s plan spurred a torrent of testy Tweets:

“Keep your hands on the wheel and don’t make any sudden moves while you are being rewarded, it could cost you your life.”

“We gunned him down…. well, he refused to stop for his coupon. Self defense. Case dismissed.”

“Um, WHAT?!? They better not stop me for driving legally cause that’s illegal! #harassment”

“What if you don’t stop?”

“Cops to profile for illegal immigrants under the guise of campaign to promote good driving.”

“There goes probable cause right out the window. Police state 101.”

“I would get a panic attack. My reward for driving well is not dying. That’s all I want.”

“Unless it’s a ruse to illegally search your vehicles. And if they notice anything out of line during the mock pullover you’ll be arrested.”

“What’s next? Are they going to start walking into people’s houses to congratulate them for not breaking the law?”

One commenter suggested he could be fined for “resisting a coupon” for free drinks.

A few months before its “positive ticketing campaign” announcement, Tempe police were harshly criticized after one of their officers shot a 14-year-old boy in the back, killing him as he was running away while holding a replica airsoft pistol. An Arizona ACLU employee summarized the situation on Twitter:

“Tempe cops: the community doesn’t trust us after we shot and killed an unarmed teen (sic) what do we do

Community: stop killing us

Tempe cops: FREE THIRSTBUSTERS AND UNREASONABLE STOPS”

The Tempe Police Department responded to the uproar by issuing a statement stating that they never intended to pull over motorists without good cause. Instead, the free-coupon program would be targeted to pedestrians, bicyclists, and skateboarders. But the furious reaction of people across the nation signaled the profound distrust of police….Read More

 

 

How Property Taxes Will Take Millions of Homes In the Next Administration on Behalf of the NWO


MFP Commentary: 
The Satanic plan to bring in the NWO and to kill  all Christians, is known as the Communist Manifesto (1) and has as it’s first plank, that people will not be allowed to own land (such as a property tax).
This plan to murder God’s people is supported  (or at least not opposed) in almost every “Christian church” in this country! Has Christianity  become a suicidal mental disorder?

As I have stated many times  before,  if we had a functioning milita in this country we would have at least some defense against this tyranny.  This is exactly the kind of  thing that the second amendment, and the militia were there to protect us from.

Here are some other stories we have covered on this evil tax and concept.

Boulder County Sheriff’s Office sued after video shows inmate being tasered while strapped down


MFP Commentary:

This is how Blue ISIS acts in your town.  (I know from over 50 years of experience with them)The  so called “Christians” in the churches seem to support this evil without reservation. Christity IMHO has become a mental disorder that does  not know the difference between right and wrong.

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).

When things like this happen to someone 99.9% of the time they can do nothing to seek justice because “modern christians”  seem to be perfectly fine with the government created monopoly of the legal “BAR” that most people can never ever afford.  In my personal life in dozens of crimes committed against me by the state I have not had the funds to hire one of the monopolists (lawyers)  even once to help me seek justice…..not once.  The FACT of the matter is that for the common person there is ZERO access to any form of justice or the legal system and it’s going to reach a head sooner or later.
FWIW the “milita” used to be our protection against such tyranny.  No longer.  Americans are stupid enough to have let it die on the vine.

BOULDER, Colo. — The Boulder County sheriff and five deputies are named in an excessive force lawsuit after an inmate was tasered even though she was already in a restraint chair with her hands strapped behind her back and her head covered with a spit hood.

Lauren Gotthelf filed the federal lawsuit Tuesday morning for an incident that occurred Nov. 25, 2017.

The 34-year-old was ticketed by a Boulder police officer for smoking on the Pearl Street Mall and allowing her service dog to be off-leash. When Gotthelf refused to sign the summons, she was taken to the Boulder County Jail.

Once at the jail, Sgt. Chris Reiss can be heard on body cam footage telling Gotthelf, “Based on your suicide statements, you’re going on suicide watch.”

Gotthelf is heard denying she made any suicidal statements but there is no body cam that recorded what she may have said moments earlier, only the interaction between her and deputies that followed.

“You guys are nuts,” is what Gotthelf is heard saying to deputies when told she has to strip and put on a suicide smock. At one point, Gotthelf told deputies that she should be taken to a hospital if they believed she was a suicide risk.

“You’re not going to a hospital, you’re going on a suicide protocol,” Reiss responded.

Suicide protocol often means placing the inmate in isolation with a smock so he or she cannot harm themself….Read More

 

A Michigan Man Underpaid His Property Taxes By $8.41. The County Seized His Property, Sold It—and Kept the Profits.


MFP Commentary:
Isn’t this exactly what the 2nd amendment, and the milita is all about? I doubt this would have happened if we had a fully functioning milita. Instead we have Blue ISIS that instead of protecting our rights is one of the main violators of our God given rights.

A state law allows counties to effectively steal homes over unpaid taxes and keep the excess revenue for their own budgets.

| 

A Michigan Man Underpaid His Property Taxes By $8.41. The County Seized His Property, Sold It—and Kept the Profits.

An 83-year-old retired engineer in Michigan underpaid his property taxes by $8.41. In response, Oakland County seized his property, auctioned it off to settle the debt, and pocketed nearly $24,500 in excess revenue from the sale.

Under Michigan law, it was all legal. And hardly uncommon.

Uri Rafaeli, who lost his property and all the equity associated with it, is just one of thousands of people to be victimized by Michigan’s uniquely aggressive property tax statute. The law, passed in 1999 in an attempt to accelerate the rehabilitation of abandoned properties, empowers county treasurers to act as debt collectors. In the process, it creates a perverse incentive by allowing treasurers’ offices to retain excess revenue raised by seizing and selling properties with delinquent taxes—even when the amount owed is miniscule, and even when the homes aren’t abandoned or blighted at all. …Read More

It’s official: “Blue ISIS” at gunpoint steals more from Americans than the regular “thieves”


MFP Commentary:
It can no longer be denied.  The thugs in blue costumes (Blue ISIS) outright steal at gunpoint more than the other criminals that we throw the book at.   We pay the salaries of these criminals.  Do you ever think that these thugs will be charged with crimes like they should be?   Just like the “drug warrior” cops should be?

When they can take your children away… how free are you?

When they can take your children away… how free are you?

George Reby was driving from New Jersey to Tennessee to pick up a car he had purchased on eBay when he was stopped for speeding.

Like many Americans, George felt he had nothing to hide from the police. So when the officer asked him if he was carrying any large amounts of cash, he admitted he had $22,000 on him because he was buying a car.

George was able to show the officer his eBay bids, and that the sale was legitimate. He was able to demonstrate that he has income from his job as an insurance adjuster.

But none of that mattered. The cop seized George’s money on the spot.

Later, in a court hearing that George was not allowed to participate in, the judge allowed the police to keep the money even though George was never charged with a crime…..Read More

The Present Leftist Coup Will Culminate with a Reign of Terror Including the Unlimited Use of Guillotines


MFP Commentary:
This story may seem way out there, but  these guillotines existence have been absolutely confirmed by a 4 star general whistleblower that was murdered by the deep state for his warning us…. With the current   silence and apathy of “Christians” about evil, I would say that this is to be expected if not deserved. ~MFP

Did you know that the guillotine is the most efficient and cleanest killing machine on fhe planet? Off with the head and the organ harvesting can continue in abundance. Reportedly, a guillotine can chop off the heads of about 100 people per hour. In one hour, the ruling authority has the capacity to execute as many as three million people. In one ten hour day, 30 million people could be executed by way of the guillotine. The best question to ask is not whether anyone would do this, but rather, how many people will be executed by guillotine after the Leftist overthrow of America is complete and the reign of terror begins? Yet, very few have the courage to even look objectively at this topic. Even fewer would dare to talk about it in private conversations. ……Read More

 

The End of Accountable Government Is Close at Hand By Paul Craig Roberts

The End of Accountable Government Is Close at Hand

For about 70 years the CIA has been undermining a free press.  It began with Operation Mockingbird, a Cold War operation against communism.  The CIA recruited journalists into a propaganda network.  The CIA paid journalists to write fake stories or to publish stories written by the CIA in order to control explanations that served the agency’s agendas.  Student and cultural organizations and intellectual magazines, such as Encounter, were suborned into the CIA’s propaganda network.  Thanks to the German journalist, Udo Ulfkotte, we know that every European journalist of any significance is a CIA asset.  In 1977 Carl Bernstein of Watergate fame wrote in Rolling Stone that the CIA “has secretly bankrolled numerous foreign press services, periodicals and newspapers—both English and foreign language—which provided excellent cover for CIA operatives.”  Like most other people, Western journalists were all too willing to sell out their integrity for money.  The few who were not were blackmailed into submission.

The few honest journalists who remain have been forced out of the “mainstream” or presstitute media onto Internet websites.  Wikileaks is by far the best news organization of our time.  To bring this organization to heel Washington, using its Swedish, British, and Ecuadoran vassals, has persecuted Wikileaks’ founder, Julian Assange, for years.  The CIA’s media vassals, including the New York Times and The Guardian, both of which published the material leaked to Wikileaks that is being used to destroy Assange, have joined wholeheartedly in the persecution of the World’s Best and Most Honest Journalist.  …Read More

The Forgotten Media Purges of the Great Depression

 • OCTOBER 27, 2019

Republican Hoover built the federal broadcasting shield in 1927. Roosevelt fashioned it into a weapon in 1934 and Democrats have never put it down since. One might consider the elaborate FCC speech barriers: A Poll Tax on Public Debate

One of the more enduring myths accepted as reality in our modern society is that America has a relatively free press. The ruling authorities and their entrenched accomplices promote that lie as diligently as they work to ensure that it never again becomes true.

America did have a mostly free and independent press until the rise of broadcasting in the 1920s. Within a few years, a small group of Republicans, progressives and corporate interests successfully nationalized the airwaves with restrictive licensing that blocked competition, rewarded insiders and squelched dissent.

Over the next few decades, the increasingly powerful medium of radio and then television drowned out the previously broad spectrum of information and ideas—with often three or more diverse choices of daily newspapers in many U.S. cities—and turned free speech into carefully rationed federal broadcasting privileges, their anointed urban newspaper monopolies and a few approved magazines.

One of the more ironic parts of this forgotten history is that a Republican, Herbert Hoover, led the initial charge to politicize the press. When the more authoritarian FDR took the reins in 1933—holding onto power until his death in 1945—he would ultimately purge the airwaves as well as the newspaper and magazine stands of the nation’s greatest commentators, publishers, editors and writers. In their absence, only pro-war / pro-welfare state neo-liberals and neo-conservatives would survive in mainstream media for generations to come…Read More
