Aussie Speeding Fines – May 2016

An absolute MUST READ update – irrefutable proof that our informaiton works, the utter stupidity of those in charge and info on important, upcoming live events!

- Our upcoming seminars with the Know Your Rights group

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

~~~~~~~

- Intro

Wow! It has been a very busy month or so since we last wrote to you and a lot has happened in that time.

Of greatest importance is the abundance of extremely powerful testimonials that we have received, including a precedent-setting win in the County Court just this week by one of our Members. You can read the full details of his success, as well as that of many others, in the Latest Testimonials and Feedback section towards the end of this e-mail.

We have also received a heap of media articles that show just how completely out of touch and insane the powers-that-be have become, as well as some great confirmation, from the police themselves, that speed cameras do not work!

So, there’s lots of really great information to cover again in this month’s update but, before you get started, we want to warn you that we haven’t pulled any punches in this update and some of if it pretty “in your face” so, as long as you’re prepared for that, get comfortable and read on …..

The absolute stupidity of those in charge

We often “have a go” at the police and complain about them using underhanded tactics to enforce ridiculous, ineffective and unlawful “rules”. We have reported previously on police hiding in bushes to nab motorists, we have explained how they are trained to create false readings through slip, sweep and cosine errors and we have covered the generally over-the-top practices they employ to simply generate revenue for the government.

Admittedly, they are just “doing their job” – despite the fact that the Nuremberg Trials proved that was not a valid excuse – and we continually encourage all law enforcement personnel to watch this short but powerful “Message to Police” video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOsN-P5abVg – and to leave their respective State police forces, if they no longer agree with the jobs they are being forced to do.

But, at the end of the day, like in any business – which, of course, is all this revenue raising is to them, just a business – the buck stops at the top, with the politicians that order the police to do their dirty work.

So, we thought it would be important for us to give you an idea of the thinking process of those in top positions in our country, just so you can see who you’re supporting if you, or someone you knows, buys into the “if you don’t speed then you have nothing to worry about” crap – or, of course, similar sentiments.

So, to begin with, we have Bill Shorten, the illustrious leader of the opposition party who recently caused a severe head on crash, that required someone to be hospitalised, because he thought it would be a good idea to pull over his entire convoy of cars on the side of a dangerous stretch of road, in order to have a meeting about that section of road being dangerous!

What the???

Yes, you read that correctly and you can read the full story here - http://thenewdaily.com.au/news/2016/05/19/shortens-convoy-involved-serious-accident/

Seriously, what’s next? Will Malcolm Turnbull stop an army of cars in the middle of a dangerous intersection to discuss how that intersection is dangerous???

Please make no mistake about it, these are the people who are spending millions of your hard earned tax dollars to convince you to “elect” them into power to run our country!!!!

Okay, so now, hopefully, you’re clear on who we’re dealing with.

So, then you have these guys giving orders to the police departments around the country to “target low level speeders”, to hide in bushes and to install and/or utilise more speed cameras. These, and other equally useless strategies, cannot possibly have any positive bearing on the road toll because they don’t work!

But then, the media releases articles such as this - http://www.news.com.au/national/breaking-news/nsw-police-baffled-after-high-toll-weekend/news-story/41019689c476059ec4e0a9e29730a5df - that exclaim that the police are baffled by the high road toll.

Come on people, it’s not rocket science! If you really believe that reducing speed is going to reduce accidents – which, we have proven many times is not the case – then how is hiding in a bush going to cause people to slow down? How is sending someone a fine in the mail 3 to 4 weeks after they were supposedly “speeding” and thus, “driving dangerously” going to stop that?

It can’t and it won’t!

The reason for the high number of deaths and crashes is not “baffling” at all – in fact, it is very simple – it is a lack of focus and attention on the road – because people are so worried about getting a BS fine – and it is as a result of long term lack of training and education on how to drive properly.

If you want to read about strategies that will really have a positive impact on the road toll, be sure to read over our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - so you can see what we are ultimately trying to achieve.

We just don’t know how to make it any clearer to people. The article said that the police were focussed on “speeding drivers” and they even called the process “Operation Go Slow” yet there were a horrendous number of deaths and crashes. If that doesn’t prove to you that “speed” has almost nothing to do with the road toll then we really don’t know what will.

- The Police have their own problems

So, apart from the fact that the police are seemingly “baffled” by logic and common sense, they are also struggling with a few other issues.

On the one hand, you have police spokespeople spouting that “Every k over is a killer” and “speed kills” and then the cops turn around and do this – http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/the-pulse-adelaides-live-news-weather-and-traffic-blog/news-story/3e7508413edb19560268db191c29a007?sv=fa576b197d52caa2575c78f3cc6ce9d5

It is important to note from the outset that this article conveniently “forgets” to mention one teeny, weeny little detail – the street that this occurred on is a 50 km/h zone!!!

We welcome any member of the police – especially someone from one of the many Crash Investigation Units around the country – to please explain to us how a skilled driver, who has completed an advanced driver training course – as all police do – rolls a car at 50km/h!

Now, the article makes it clear that the police were not involved in a pursuit at the time and because police are upstanding members of the community and always set a good example for fellow motorists – plus all the crap they keep spouting about “speeding” – we “know” that they wouldn’t possibly have been exceeding the speed limit so would someone – maybe even the officers involved – like to contact us and explain what the hell happened here!

Then, on the other hand, you have police admitting that speed cameras don’t actually save lives and do, indeed, exist simply to raise revenue - http://www.skynews.com.au/news/national/wa/2016/04/19/speed-cameras-don-t-save-lives–police-union.html

Specifically, the WA Police Union are questioning the powers-that-be as to why they are being forced to place cameras in spots that raise significant revenue but have little or no impact on road safety or the road toll.

The fact that they openly admit that “75% of fatal crashes are not related to speed” should hopefully remove any doubt that anyone may still have that all speed cameras are plain and simply “revenue raising cameras” and nothing more!

Sadly, Acting Police Minister John Day, is as deluded and out of touch with reality as Bill Shorten, if he honestly believes that “majority of people supported measures such as cameras to target dangerous drivers”. We respectfully suggest that he might like to crawl out from behind his desk and actually talk to members of the motoring public to see what they really think!

What is even more interesting is that there was a similar media article released on the same subject - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/wa/a/31382045/police-union-pans-speed-cameras-as-revenue-raisers/ - that has slightly different points that further erode the position of the powers-that-be that “speed kills”, “speed is the biggest killer on our roads” or any of that kind of rubbish.

In fact, the WA Police Union President says that he knows why people are cynical about cameras – maybe John Day should speak to him so he can set him straight on what people really think about speed cameras.

The Police Union goes on to admit what we said in the previous section, that a motorist receiving a fine in the mail weeks after the fact is not a deterrent and, in fact, all it does is pisses people off and creates a distinct dislike for the police.

The strangest bit is that the Road Safety Minister and  Road Safety Commissioner then both admit that speed is only “a” factor in just 25% of accidents, which is much closer to the true figure of just 5% that we detail in the Crash Statistics file on our Vision for the Future page – http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - and which is significantly less than the figures that are bantered around by the media, the police and the government most of the time.

Poor old delusional Mr Day needs to go off and check his facts properly again though because his suggestion in this article, that fatalities have dropped since more cameras were used, simply bears no resemblance to reality. There are more cameras installed each and every year around the country and the road toll has increased in most States, including WA.

The bottom of this page - https://rsc.wa.gov.au/Statistics-Research - shows that, despite there being more cameras than ever before over the past 4 years, the road toll is WA has yo-yoed between 161 and 182, virtually no difference to the figures from 10 years prior – when there were far fewer cameras and the road toll figures ranged from almost identical figures of 164 to 180.

So, with all due respect Mr Day, either put up or shut up – go and spend some more tax payers dollars to create some figures that back up you completely false and ridiculous claims but, in the meantime, don’t take us for fools and stop spouting your crap to the media – no-one’s taking you seriously anymore!

- Our upcoming seminars with the Know Your Rights group

And, just to finish of this month, we want to let everyone know that the next Know Your Rights seminar and workshop will be held in Adelaide next weekend – the 28th and 29th of May – and they have also just announced their long-awaited Melbourne events, which will be held on the 25th and 26th of June.

If you enjoy the information that we provide in relation to traffic fines then we know you’re going to love the information that is presented at the Know Your Rights live events – which includes dealing with fines, challenging the ATO, understanding the “Strawman” concept, the power of the Commonwealth Constitution and much more!

Unfortunately, due to dwindling numbers around the country these events will be their last events. The last Melbourne event they held sold out and, given that this will be their last ever live event, it is almost certain that those events will sell out again.

Please read the e-mail below from the guys at the Know Your Rights group and be sure to check out their Seminar page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/seminar/ - for full details on what is covered at those events, details of how to book your ticket(s) and even testimonials from previous attendees.

Hi Guys,

If you could pass the following onto your database, that would be much appreciated.

We are desperately trying to wake up the average, apathetic, footy-transfixed Aussie and teach them about their rights and we need your help!

Are you sick of busting your butt at work day in and day out, only to give a huge portion of it away to the tax man?

Are you sick of being fined for ridiculous things such as 3 and 4 k’s over the limit, stopping to pick someone up in a shopping centre and the like?

Are you sick of paying exponentially increasing council taxes and rates?

Do you get the general feeling that something “isn’t right” with the current system but you’re not quite sure what it is or what to do about it?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions then you need to attend one of our upcoming Know Your Rights seminars and advanced workshops, which are being held in Adelaide on Saturday and Sunday, the 28th and 29thof May and on Saturday and Sunday, the 25th and 26th of June respectively.

These events have had rave reviews around the country but, unfortunately, it appears as though the general population is just not ready to “wake up” yet so these will actually be our last live events. Having said that, these will be truly life-changing events for anyone who chooses to attend and we urge anyone who has even the slightest interest in learning about their rights to come along.

All your questions will be answered at these empowering full day events and you will learn the following from Australian speakers who actually have proven success in these areas, in this country:

How to defeat all types of unjust and unlawful traffic fines – including speeding, parking, red light, un-registered vehicle etc.

How our Commonwealth Constitution applies to you and how to use it to your benefit.

Why local councils are un-Constitutional and what you can do about it.

The fraud committed by the banks, how to fight back against it and how to lawfully discharge outstanding debts.

The difference between “lawful” and “Legal” and how the government has introduced private laws that attempt to subvert our Constitutional and Common Law rights.

The Strawman concept – how the government has corporatized your name in order to “do business” with you and how to recognise that and benefit as a result.

How to protect your assets and your income using trusts and private foundations and how to legally ensure that you have no future tax obligations.

What the future holds for Aussies if we don’t all learn about our rights and start fighting back!

To find out more about what we will cover at these incredible full day events, to read and see what others have said about past events and, to book your tickets, be sure to go to our Seminar page -http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/seminar/ - and take action now!

Remember, those who keep doing what they’ve always done will keep getting what they always got – do something different today!

We look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events.

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

As we mentioned at the start of this e-mail update, we have been absolutely inundated with testimonials and feedback from Members who have successfully used our information to defeat their unjust and unlawful fines.

We can’t possibly fit them all into this one update but we wanted to share some of the most powerful ones because we know that there are still people out there who doubt or question the effectiveness of our information and the following collection of e-mails alone – let alone the other five pages of testimonials that we have on our website – should definitely put any such doubts to rest.

Our first is actually two separate e-mails from the same very proactive member who has had some fantastic success over the course of the past month. His first e-mail relates to his success in having a parking fine dismissed and having costs awarded in his favour as well.

Hi guys,

Another parking fine victory.

Briefly. My wife drove herself to hospital in panic during a massive haemorrhage emergency. She parked in car park next to hospital. Was admitted and the car stayed where it was for two days. Upon retrieving the car I found an infringement from Whittlesea council Victoria on the window.

I wrote a letter with a note from the hospital saying what had happened. The reply I got was a disgrace, typical Council bullshit. I started the 3 step process and as always did not use the templates word for word I used them as a guide. Letters went back and forth for 12 months and I finally elected to go to court.

Went to court last Friday. Met with the council representative and told him unless he is withdrawing I do not want to speak to him. Called up by Magistrate, Magistrate asked my wife for her plea and she stated. ‘Guilty but asking you dismiss the case due to circumstance’

When my wife laid out the circumstances, the magistrate was disgusted and immediately dismissed the case. My wife asked for costs due to stress. Council objected stating the weren’t told this story and if they had been they would of withdrawn.

My wife held up original letter that we sent explaining the situation. Magistrate stated she was disgusted by this Councils attitude and awarded costs of one days wages being $80.

hahahahaha cop that council!!

Now it’s onto the speed camera fine appeal in the County Court in May.

Paul – Vic.

And, as that e-mail refers to, his second victory was a major win on appeal in the County Court just this week. We understand that, at the time of writing this e-mail, he is speaking to various media outlets about the hugeramifications of this win for all motorists and we hope to have more to report on this in our next update. In the meantime, this is what he had to say about his latest victory using our information:

Hi guys, We Won!! Below is what I’ve written on the ASF Facebook page.

County Court Melbourne Victory 18/05/2016.

Firstly thank you to ASF for pointing me in the right direction and providing a stepping stone to more research. Your ASF book has been pivotal to having this speeding fine dismissed. Secondly, this was not a case of me trying to get out of a speeding fine, i was not speeding PERIOD. I was willing to fight tooth and nail because i know in my heart i was not speeding. Ok the case today.

As advised by ASF i researched the Road Safety Act, National Measurement Act, State Law and Australian Federal Law extensively. 

Firstly i asked the Judge if this matter was a criminal matter, he said yes, i stated with all crimes there must be a corpus delicti is that correct? He said yes. I asked if the court may proceed against me, without proof of a corpus delicti. At this point i noticed i got his un decided attention. He looked at the prosecutor and stated. “Very interesting argument” I jumped in with Your Honour, I move the court to dismiss the charges on the basis there is no prima face case against me. He looked at me and nodded silently for about 3 seconds and then said, just a minute, you’re putting forward an argument i have not dealt with for quite some time, I’m not dismissing the argument but i need to establish a few things with the prosecutor. From this point the next 20 minutes was taken up by the judge grilling the prosecutor about Corpus Delicti and how the burden of proof is on the prosecution and that I am challenging his evidence. I felt I had the upper hand and the Judge on my side at this point. Following this the prosecutor convinced the Judge that the photo and certificate were in fact Corpus Delicti blah blah blah. Judge stated on that basis he is not willing to dismiss but you have my attention. BINGO!!

I objected to the evidence presented by the prosecution because it does not meet the requirement of Australian Federal Law or the National Measurement Act. I showed the Judge that if State Law is inconsistent with the NMA then the Federal Act and Regulations take precedent. I showed the certificate presented by the prosecution under Section 83 of the Road Safety Act is inconsistent with certification requirements of the NMA and NMR.

The prosecution stated they will be relying on the Road Safety Act 83A to tender the evidence. I objected and stated to the Judge that section only applies if there is no evidence to the contrary and Ii fully intend to provide evidence to the contrary by way of sworn testimony that I was not speeding and as I have not yet had an opportunity to provide that evidence, I submit that section is not relevant and will be prejudicial to my case. The Judge at this point asked me if I had a copy of the Act. I obliged and passed it onto the clerk. Again the next 25 minutes was taken up by the judge reading the Act.

When the Judge finished reading the relevant parts of the Act he stated. This is the worse rules or Acts ever put on paper, it is the messiest thing I have ever seen and have always despised it. He spoke to me about the Act in detail and in length and asked several question regarding the Act and the NMA, he then said he is going to allow the prosecutor’s evidence but has noted my objection as an excellent argument that several of my high court Judges would find very interesting. From this point forward i am interested in hearing your testimony.

From this point forward I was confident I had the judge on my side. I gave my testimony followed by the passenger in the vehicle, the prosecutor asked his questions and that was that.

Dismissed due to evidence to the contrary being mine and my passengers sworn testimony that i was not speeding. We provided testimony of why the day and date in question was relevant and easily remembered, as we travel this very road, this very date, every single year for the past 10 years to go on our annual fishing trip to Eden NSW. We provided testimony that we both looked at the speedometer before going under the Wellington Road Bridge East Link and we provided testimony why we felt the need to do that.

The Judge then stated “It would be a sad day in the state of Victoria when we believe a machine over the testimony of two upstanding citizens of the community”. You’re Excused.

So my advice to everyone:
1. Forget the Magistrates court, the Magistrate and his decisions are worth a pinch of shit, the real case starts at County. 

2. Research and know your topic. Don’t just use what ASF have provided. You need to know this stuff because you will be asked about it.

3. Be polite but fight tooth and nail. Remember the system is a corrupt revenue raising machine and when you question it, you will be asked to elaborate on facts of the NMA and law. If you don’t know, forget it, you will lose.

Well done guys, couldn’t of done it without you

Paul – Vic.

Please take note of what he says and do not be concerned or disheartened if you take a case to court and lose, as we have said many times, the Magistrate’s Court is just your “trial run” and this case proves it.

Our next is from yet another very pro-active Member who has won a number of cases using our information. Many of you will recall the extensive paperwork that he provided to us last year – that we have now uploaded to our Advanced membership website - http://www.membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/download.php - that many people have found very handy. Well, he was at it again recently and, as you can see from the e-mail below, he has now racked up another victory using our information.

Hi everyone,

Today I received written advice from the Courts Administration Authority SA in relation to my (false) arrest last year and subsequent court appearances.

In February I received a letter from the Magistrates Court advising that the hearing was to be on a certain date and that “you are required to attend”.

I replied back to the Registrar, in her private, unlimited commercial liability, and rebutted that we are “you” and that she should send the notice to whoever “you” is for their attention. Failure to respond within 7 days would provide full legal accord and satisfaction of all claims against me.

The response today from the CAA is that they have no record of any convictions or fines against me. 

So I’m pretty happy with the result and hope that that’s the last of the matter (if they try anything else now they endanger their registrar to legal action).

The reason I’m writing is to thank each and every one of you for your support, advice and conviction to keep going with this matter. I’d never have had the courage to do this in the past but with your help and support I am extremely happy!

Cheers,

Wayne – SA

Our next is from a Member who successfully had not one, not two, but three speed camera fines withdrawn after using our 3 step process:

Good morning Aussie Speeding Fines,

Many thanks for your support and educating me as to the ways the Monarchy raise revenue willy nilly and try to represent whatever it is they claim as law.

Attached is a letter I recently received from them that states that all of the offences (3 Multanova fines, rear facing camera photos of my vehicle on 3 different occasions in a month)  have been withdrawn. I applied the 3-step process and included all 3 case numbers together to be all dealt with as a whole and they bent over for me.

Below is a link to their submission for my win with them;

 

Dear Sir,

Re: Charge of Exceed the Speed Limit in a Speed Zone, Infringement Numbers xxx, xxx & xxx

Information has been received regarding the above mentioned charges. These matters are listed at Fremantle Magistrates Court on 22nd August 2016.

As part of the review process undertaken when preparing the papers for prosecution, it was decided the matters should be withdrawn.

WA Police will not be proceeding any further regarding these matters.

Sincerely,

Ren MUSCARA

Senior Constable 9485

Prosecutions officer

 

Once again, many thanks and I will forever recommend and be a lifelong member of Aussie Speeding Fines, cheers.

Andrew – WA

And, finally, our last and possibly most powerful e-mail is from a member who was facing over $200,000 worth of fines had them significantly reduced to just $12,000 – which is a huge win in anyone’s books – and, to top it all off, he’s only going to be paying that off at $50 a week anyway!

Hi guys,

Thanks for you recent advice, it was much appreciated.

Just to let you know I have been toe to toe with CCV and IMES for a good 18months. Long story short, on Thursday I went into court 1 hr before my hearing and spent 1hr and 20min auditing all the alleged Infringement Warrants. It has taken me 2 months to finally be granted permission to view the original warrants.

I entered court and explained to Magistrate unless an agreement can be reached today on my terms I will appeal to supreme court based on question of law. My argument is all Infringement Warrants I reviewed did not contain a name or signature of an Infringement Registrar pursuant to sect 80 of Infringement Act and sect 150 & 151 of Evidence Act 1995. I noted all warrants presented as “original” were all issued on Sheriff Office stationary, not Infringement or Magistrate courts, as required. Therefore, these are invalid and cannot be accepted as evidence. 
Magistrate Bolster did not deny or even argue this point, he in fact stated, “I see where you are going with this.” He stood the matter down at 12:30. I was called back into court at 4:15pm, and note the entire court complex was closed and not a person in sight.

He offered a reduction and payment plan of $50 to payback $12000 instead of $202k. He said do you accept. I accept.

So thanks for your help again.

Cole – Vic

So, as you can see, it has been a massive month of wins for our Members and we hope the fact that we continue to update our numerous Testimonials pages, each and every month, will convince those who would normally just blindly “pay up” to stop and think before doing so and choose to challenge their fines instead. Remember, you have nothing to lose by challenging your fines and everything to gain!

Please remember that there are plenty more e-mails like that on our Testimonial’s pages - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html - and many of you will note that our old page has now grown to five full pages and continues to grow each month because we regularly receive stories of success, just like these, from our Members.

- Intro

We trust that you all enjoyed some kind of a break over the Christmas/New Year period and managed to spend some quality time with family and friends. We are super excited about what 2016 holds for our Members and, as you will see from the articles below, the year has already kicked off with some great results.

More and more people are waking up to the fact that the current system of purported “road safety” is simply about revenue raising and, as you will read soon, more motorists than ever before are choosing to fight back against the current corrupt and ineffective system, which is great news.

We genuinely believe that we are at a serious tipping point – on one hand, the governments and their goons are going to extraordinary lengths to try and extract every last dollar that they can from people and finding new ways to fine motorists and collect those fines. But, on the other hand, as we noted above, more people than ever before are fighting back and “the system” is really starting to feel the consequences of that.

As we have said many times before, it is simply a numbers game – there are many times more of “us” than there are of “them” and, as soon as we all starting fighting backcollectively, we will bring the system to its knees. We look forward to playing our role in ensuring that 2016 is the year that happens.

So, to find out what great  successes have already been achieved at this early point in the year – as well as examining some of the issues that we still face – be sure to read on and help us spread the word by passing this e-mail around to everyone you know.

And, don’t forget to check out our closing Facebook group, bumper stickers and business cards section to find other ways that you can help get the message out to fellow motorists and make this our most successful year ever.

Proof in the media that more people are fighting their fines

As we noted in our Intro, more people than ever before are fighting back against unjust and unlawful fines. In fact, so many people are now doing so that even the mainstream media is reporting on it, as you can see in this article – http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/more-victorian-drivers-taking-parking-and-traffic-fines-to-court/news-story/bb34deda5b00e8f3caf800396dadcba5

As the article states, more and more motorists, each and every year, are choosing to fight their fines and, last year, that number was almost 73,000, which is fantastic news. The problem is that Victoria Police issued 2.9 million traffic infringements and there were a further 1.68 million parking tickets issued so why did only 73,000 motorists challenge their fines when over 4.5 million fines were issued???

Those figures mean that only 1.5% of people who received a fine actually challenged it in court – that is simply not good enough! We believe that figure should be as close to 100% as possible – now, realistically, that is never going to happen but let’s at least start by aiming for double figures and see what kind of an impact that has on the system!

Be sure to refer to the story in our last official e-mail update of 2015 that details how the NSW government is spending $20 million to try and cut the backlog in their court system - http://www.skynews.com.au/news/politics/state/2015/12/06/-20m-package-to-cut-nsw-court-backlog.html - which is, at least in part, a result of so many people challenging their fines and helping to fill up the courts. Just imagine the impact we could make if 10%, 20% or if 50% of people challenged their fines!!!

Remember, our e-book – “Speeding Fines What You REALLY Need to Know” – teaches you everything you need to know to successfully challenge your fines, from the moment you receive a fine in the mail or get pulled over, right through to taking a matter to court and beating it there. The book is laid out in a very simple, easy to follow, step-by-step format that thousands of motorists have been using now – since 2007, when we started – to beat their fines.

We would urge you to spend some time reading through our five full pages of Testimonials - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html - to see for yourself just how many people have successfully used our information. Then, if you haven’t yet done so, be sure to join up as an E-Book Member -http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html - and grab your own copy of our licence-saving e-book, in either digital format or hard copy.

And remember, as an E-Book Member, you are not only getting the information in our book, you are also getting almost 30 pre-written letters that you can use to respond to any fine you receive and you get 24/7 e-mail support from our team as well, to assist you with any questions you may have along the way. There is a small one-off fee to become an E-Book Member and, once you are, you get regular e-mail updates and e-mail support completely free for life!

So, join up now, encourage your friends, family and work colleagues to do so as well so that, at the end of this year, the media is reporting a massive spike in the number of people that are challenging their fines and we start hearing more stories about the issues that “the system’ is facing as a result.

- The truth about speed cameras

We have had a page up on our website for many years now that has information on why speed and red light cameras should be removed from service and we even have a petition that you can sign to help achieve that outcome - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html

We have recently received a few more articles, which we intend to upload to that page, that provide even further information on the problems with speed cameras. The first is a great article that asks the very powerful question, “Are speed cameras killing us?” - http://www.caradvice.com.au/332771/are-speed-cameras-killing-us-the-stats-say-yes/?plista

This article clearly silences the government propaganda that “Speed Kills” or that “Speed Cameras Save Lives” – as we’re constantly told – and, although the article is a year old, the increase in the road toll in Victoria occurred again last year, as this article details - http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-01-01/victorian-road-toll-increases-in-2015-to-257-killed/7063538

So, despite more cameras being installed across Victoria, and more fines being issued in Victoria each year, the road toll has continued to increase over the past 2 years! The road toll is also currently up in NSW and we are just awaiting figures from other States as we write but don’t believe that any State has seen any significant reduction in the road toll last year. So, why does the government continue using speed cameras if they have been proven not to“save lives”? Because they make a hell of a lot of money. As the “Are Speed Cameras Killing Us? article” states, revenue from speed cameras alone, just in Victoria, is almost $300 million!!! If you were in government and raking in that much money, would you remove them? Of course not!

So, as we have said a million times before, the only way to put an end to this madness and have these cameras removed is by getting everyone to challenge every fine they get. Then, the government will be faced with the fact that speed cameras are making little or no money and the road toll is continuing to increase and then, they will have to take notice of the strategies and ideas that we have detailed on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html

The closing lines of the “Are Speed Cameras Killing Us?” article perfectly mirrors what we have had on our Vision for the Future page for over 8 years now – let’s focus on improving driver training and education, removing drunk and drug affected drivers from our roads and let’s stop focussing on “speeding” and, instead, concentrate on the factors that truly affect “road safety”.

We received another great article that, once again, proves that speed cameras are all about revenue raising. The opening line of this article - http://www.vice.com/read/the-shady-municipal-business-of-traffic-cams - details a fact that many of us can relate to (depending on your age). For many years we drove very happily and very safely without ever receiving a fine but, since the introduction of the insidious speed camera program, many drivers have received numerous fines, especially over the past 5 years or so.

Be sure to take note of some key statements throughout that article, such as the reference to an 800% increase in accidents when cameras were installed in a town in California or how simply lengthening the time an intersection’s light remains red can improve safety at zero cost and without the need for red light cameras.

The point that should excite all Aussie motorists is the fact that the city councils in Los Angeles and Houston have voted overwhelmingly to shut the speed and red light camera programs because they have proven that the cameras simply don’t work and, since they are no longer making money for those councils, there’s absolutely no point keeping them. We need to ensure that our cameras, right here in Australia, also stop making money – by people challenging their fines rather than blindly “paying up” – and that is how we will have them removed here too.

The Police are starting to speak up against speed cameras

In our earlier Proof in the media that more people are fighting their fines section, we detailed the fact that the mainstream media is now reporting on the fact that more and more people are choosing to challenge their fines and that is great news. Even better news is the fact that ex-police officers are now starting to speak up about what a complete scam the current system of “speed detection” aka “revenue raising” really is.

There was a great article posted right at the start of this year called “The Speed Camera Swindle” and you can read it here - http://revenueraiserresistance.com/camera-swindle/ This article was written by an ex-police officer, who was certified as a Class 1 Advanced (Police) Driver so we dare say that he is pretty well qualified to comment on this subject.

He starts by explaining that, quite obviously, overt cameras are going to cause people to slow down, yet covert speed detection practices – whereby you are simply sent a fine in the mail a few weeks after the fact – cannot possibly cause people to slow down or save anyone’s life. This fact was highlighted in the “Are Speed Cameras killing Us?” article in our previous section.

He goes on to say that despite the use of covert cameras increasing, the standard of driving has decreased because covert cameras clearly do nothing to modify driver’s behaviour at the time that they are actually driving. He goes onto to mirror what we have said for years, that it is focus and attention that are the keys to true road safety.

He also talks about the fact that speeds limits are set too low – ie. arbitrarily set and then artificially lowered in order to “catch” more motorists. This lowering of limits causes frustration and anger and that is yet another factor in accidents. So, the reality is that governments are actually causing the very accidents that they preach they are trying to stop!

As he correctly states, we need to be focused on driving safely not on driving below some arbitrarily set speed limit, just so we don’t get a fine! He also makes another point that we have made many times over the past 8 years, regarding the Government “budgeting” an amount of revenue from speed cameras, despite them telling us that they are an effective deterrent and cause people to slow down. He points out that the WA government has “budgeted” for income of almost $98 million from cameras this year but surely, if camera truly worked they way the government claims they do then they should be budgeting zero income!

His closing lines, about covert cameras having little effect on road safety, the fact that cameras exist purely to raise revenue and the on-going brainwashing of cizitizens really does say a lot,especially coming from an ex-police officer with his training and experience.

Thankfully, he is not the only police officer saying these kinds of things. We received a fairly strongly worded e-mail this week from Owen Godfrey – another ex-police officer, who heads up the No Speed Cameras party in SA – www.nospeedcamerasparty.com His e-mail was in response to some so-called “statistics” that were released in regards to the road toll in South Australia and we have included a copy of that e-mail for you below:

Michael Cornish from the MAC needs to check his maths.

For the 2015 road toll statistics I counted 4 drivers between 16 and 24 years involved in fatalities in the metro area and 10 in the country.

To me that’s 14% NOT 18% that is statistically relevant for the 12% of people in this age range considering that many of the youngest people are not yet driving.

It is also interesting to note that a 10 year study by two academics at Monash University concluded that there was absolutely no correlation between the use of mobile phones and accidents.

Of course dialling a number or texting is not only unsafe but also irresponsible so maybe the nanny state can just back off a little.

The current system of education by prosecution is NOT working, it never has and it never will.

The only outcome is that it rips off more illegitimate money from a fine-weary public for no benefit to the road toll.

Everybody who has bothered to study the facts realise that the reduction to the road toll in the last 20 years has been due to factors other than speed cameras and laser guns.

This disgusting Government insults our Police with disgusting changes to their worker compensation rights and then expects them to be their illegitimate tax collectors whilst sullying their integrity.

He raises some very important points – such as reminding people, once again, that proper driver training and education is key to reducing the road toll and the fact that the current speed detection program and subsequent fining and punishing of drivers simply isn’t working.

Again, it’s important to remember that this is coming from an ex-police officer who used to issue fines to people himself but he only did so if they were driving dangerously, not just for exceeding some recently reduced speed limit by a few km/h.

- Troubling news for Victorian motorists

Sadly, it’s not all good news this week though. We just came across this article - http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/drivers-warned-as-new-speed-cameras-roll-out-across-victoria-20160108-gm2dkw.html - which details the fact that 17 new cameras are soon to be rolled out across Victoria.

So, despite everything that we have covered in this e-mail up til now, despite all the statistics, facts and professional opinions that say that cameras do not work in reducing the road toll, the Victorian government has decided to ignore all of that and introduce even more new cameras this year.

The article contains the usual government propaganda suggesting that “We know that speed is one of the leading cause of accidents and the significant level of road trauma” yet they can’t actually point to any statistics that would back up this claim and we have clearly provided plenty of evidence, just in this one e-mail update alone, to refute that statement.

We find it very interesting that Police Minister Wade Noona says that “most people do the right thing but too many people are still speeding and running red lights.” Now, this statement would clearly suggest that “speeding” therefore, is doing the “wrong” thing so, why is it that Victori’as top cop, Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton was caught speeding recently. And, he wasn’t caught speeding by just 1 or 2 km/h over the limit, he was caught doing a “whopping” 8km/h over the limit!

Please keep in mind hat this is the same Chief Commissioner that supports the “Speed Kills” and “Every K over is a Killer” mantras. So Mr Ashton, are you able to direct us to the 8 people that were killed as a result of you exceeding the speed limit by 8km/h?

No? Can you direct us to even one? Was anyone even injured?

Then how about you start telling the truth and stop spouting the crap to the media that you did when you were caught! http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/victoria-police-chief-commissioner-graham-ashton-caught-speeding-20160108-gm20vx.html Seriously, what’s with the, “I am embarrassed and diassppointed to find I have gone above the speed limit.” garbage?

Now, maybe if he said he was embarrassed and disappointed that he was caught, we could understand it but we will eat our words if he is genuinely embarrassed and disappointed to find that he exceeded the speed limit when it was clearly set too low – it is a brand new 4 lane freeway with a limit of only 100km/h – and almost everymotorist has drifted above the posted limit at some tiem or another in their driving lives and they are certainly not embarrassed or disappointed about doing so.

Mr Ashton, you are a joke and you do not deserve to hold the position of Chief Commissioner if you are going to lie to the public, lie to your fellow officers and lie to yourself like that! Please remove yourself from that office before you do yourself, or others, some serious harm with your lies!

The reality is that his following statement actually backs up everything we have said in this e-mail update. He admits that his speeding “was as a result of a lapse in concentration” which “highlights the need for constant attention behind the wheel” – that’s right, “constant attention” to where you are driving not constant attention on your speedo!!!

He evn goes onto to say that “Maintaining focus on the road at all times is critical; a moments distraction on the road can lead to tragedy” – we agree wholeheartedly and that is exactly what we have said throughout this e-mail, motorists should be focussing on the road in front of them and not on their speedo. They should be paying less attention to what “speed” they are doing and more attention to actually driving safely.

Of course, he finishes off with his ridiculous and baseless propaganda about how even a few km/h over “matters” yet he provides absolutely zero evidence to back up this false and misleading claim!

We are working with some other groups at present and hope to put out an open video letter to the Chief Commissioner asking him to meet with us so that we can put an end to the BS propaganda and start discussing true road safety initiatives. We will let everyione know as that project progresses and we will be asking you to help us ensure that video goes viral oince we have completed it.

And, speaking of helping us to make things go viral, please be sure to read our final section to see what you can do to really help us spread the word and bring about some realchange this year.

Propaganda Taught At Police Academies

Iraq War Veteran Blows Whistle On Shameless Propaganda Being Taught At Police Academies

Submitted by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Screen Shot 2015-09-14 at 10.44.36 AM

Before getting into the meat of this post, I want to start off by stating a fact:There is no “war on police” happening in America today. What is happening is a growing movement of people who want police accountability, profess a desire to reform the justice system so that we stop incarcerating people for the  oxymoron of “victimless crimes,” and an end to the widespread thieving of the public without due process via a practice known as civil asset forfeiture.

I’ve covered these topics extensively over the years. Here are just a few examples:

The United States: 5% of the World’s Population, 25% of its Prisoners

Don’t Mess with Texas – Police Raid and Shutdown Lemonade Stand Run by 7 and 8-Year-Old Girls

Chart of the Day – America’s Prison Population Over the Past 100 Years

Denver Police Arrest “Jury Nullification” Activist for Passing Out Informational Pamphlets

Land of the Unfree – Police and Prosecutors Fight Aggressively to Retain Barbaric Right of “Civil Asset Forfeiture”

The DEA Strikes Again – Agents Seize Man’s Life Savings Under Civil Asset Forfeiture Without Charges

Asset Forfeiture – How Cops Continue to Steal Americans’ Hard Earned Cash with Zero Repercussions

The public grievances listed earlier are reasonable demands which any civilized culture would insist upon. Nevertheless, many police departments across the country are taking these criticisms as part of some imagined “war on police” which simply doesn’t exist. Rather than showing even a sliver of introspection by looking inward at the mistakes policing has made in recent years, many officers are becoming defensive, combatant and have resorted to lies in order to dismiss the concerns of the public.

This is precisely what an Iraq war veteran witnessed recently while training at a police academy. He shared his story with the Daily Beast under the pseudonym Clayton Jenkins. Here are some excerpts:

The War on Cops is a grossly inaccurate response to recent police killings which are on track for another year that will rival the safest on record. Gunfire deaths by police officers are down 27 percent this year, according to the Officer Down memorial page, and police killings in general are at a 20-year low, given current numbers for 2015. Police deaths in Barack Obama’s presidency are lower than the past four administrations, going all the way back to Ronald Reagan’s presidency.

Not a single iota of evidence supports a War on Police, but it has become a battle cry among some in the academy.

Over 80 percent of police departments in the United States are facing issues with low recruitment numbers. As an Iraq War veteran I sought to solidify my chance of employment working in law enforcement by attending a local police academy. I enjoyed serving my country as military police and will do such now as a sworn police officer back home.

What are they telling us in a post-Michael Brown academy? The culture of police brutality is infrequently addressed, but what is continually mentioned is the notion that there is a War on Police.

“The Obama Administration and Eric Holder are undermining the police. We have officers dying left and right and he’s dicking off in Alaska,” says one of my instructors, referring to the president’s trip to Alaska last week.

I understand as a law enforcement professional—and as someone capable of fairly reading mountains of data—that the Drug War has been unfairly used as a tool of oppression against the black community. It is why the American public overall has shown they have less confidence in police in recent times.

But there is no War on Police. This Us vs. Them mentality still prevails even in fresh academy cadets. Perhaps some of these people will become future jackbooted, truncheon wielding oppressors. Or perhaps they will encounter the reality that betrays the fear they are taught.

Now watch the following recruitment video for the Portsmouth, Virginia police department…

Meanwhile, a Portsmouth officer was recently indicted after fatally shooting 18-year-old William Chapman after he was caught shoplifting.

This looks like a scene from Gaza, not the America we imagine.

Go to Jail for Reporting Child Abuse

ANLAC
Australian Natural Law Assessment Committee

Australian Government Contractors Will Now Go to Jail for Reporting Child Abuse in Detention Centers

Last month the Australian government, with the support of the opposition, passed the Border Force Protection Act through both houses of Parliament. It will come into effect on July 1.

The contents of this article are so horrific, it renders this entire government, including the opposition, worthy of instant dismissal, for colluding to commit gross violations of the most basic rights of individuals, and then hide it from the rest of the Australian population, and the world.
 
This is delusional, psychopathic conduct in our community and if the government can’t recognise it’s own insanity, community certainly can.
 
The ‘government should be instantly dismissed for grossly irresponsible conduct, with intent to harm, violate and exploit the most vulnerable.  
 
It’s no mystery to a great many people that the Australian Government is a private, foreign corporation, inflicting a private legal system upon the population and masquerading as a de-jure government.  (http://www.sec.gov)
 
This is fraud, treason and slavery.  And if asked to prove that this is not the case, the government is unable to do so, as it has already proven so many times.  
 
The contents of the above article represent a blatant psychopathic, pack and thuggery mentality with intent to exploit and harm the most vulnerable individuals on the planet.  This includes not only women and children, but individuals who are already fleeing for their lives under acts of tyranny in foreign lands.
 
The fact that this has been passed through Parliament, with the support of opposition, clearly highlights the antiquated, corrupted colonial power of this outdated private system of slavery that has a long and bloodied record of murder, slavery and disenfranchisement of the people. Full history available.
Just as the Fremantle Prison was built to hide this kind of conduct it is clearly, falsely believed, that these tortures behind the closed gates of Naura et al, will go unnoticed.  No such luck.  
 
The idea that contractors will now go to jail for reporting child abuse in detention centers is so void of basic sanity, that this government renders itself grossly incompetent and worthy of immediate dismissal.

Minister for Immigration, Peter Dutton, and the Opposition Spokesperson for Immigration, Richard Marles, neither of whom were able to provide comment before publication, you should just resign immediately and consider yourselves to be a national disgrace.  

Demilitarization of Californian Cops Begins

Demilitarization Begins? California Bill Blocks Police Getting Grenade Launchers, Tanks From Feds

Submitted by Cassius Methyl via TheAntiMedia.org,

A bill to stop the militarization of California police departments received final approval in the state legislature last Thursday. The bill is now on its way to the desk of Governor Jerry Brown.

A.B.36 establishes that California would “prohibit a local agency, other than a local law enforcement agency that is directly under the control of an elected officer, from applying to receive tactical surplus military equipment.”

It bans the transfer of “tracked armored vehicles, weaponized vehicles, firearms or ammunition greater than .50 caliber, grenade launchers, bayonets and camouflage uniforms.”

Introduced by Assemblywoman Nora Campos of San Jose, Assembly Bill 36 (A.B.36) — if enacted into law by the governor — will prevent the transfer of heavy duty weapons of war to local police departments.

Americans are increasingly concerned with the Pentagon’s now prevalent practice of arming local police departments with weapons of war, fromgrenade launchers to M-16 rifles and MRAP armored vehicles.

The bill specifically points out the dangers of police militarization, saying it would “declare that this is a matter of statewide concern.” 

Most military equipment given to local police departments is transferred via the Pentagon’s surplus 1033 program. Through it, the Pentagon donates heavy military weaponry and equipment to local police departments, government agencies, and even school districts.

The program incited alarm when schools received grenade launchers and collections of M-16 rifles. Those in question included the Los Angeles Unified School District’s police and police at the University of Louisiana, Monroe.

The controversies surrounding weapons transfers like these have chipped away at support for the 1033 program.

“Those are weapons for war, they are not for policing communities,” said Ray Robertson, an associate professor of criminal justice at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette — in reference to the University of Louisiana’s stockpile of twelve M-16 rifles.

The transfer of military weapons to local police is considered by many to be reckless as the policy raises the risk for abuse of power.  Assemblywoman Campos highlighted these concerns: “Due to recent events of police brutality, distrust between law enforcement and many of our communities remains at an all-time high,” she said. “Further exacerbating the issue is the recent militarization of law enforcement agencies and a movement away from community policing across the nation.”

The following examples from non-profit news organization The Marshall Project illustrate the scale of the weapons transfer program:

  • “Police in Johnston, R.I., with a population less than 29,000, acquired two bomb disposal robots, 10 tactical trucks, 35 assault rifles, more than 100 infrared gun sights and two pairs of footwear designed to protect against explosive mines. The Johnson police department has 67 sworn officers.
  • The parks division of Delaware’s Department of Natural Resources was given 20 M-16 rifles, while the fish and wildlife enforcement division obtained another 20 M-16s, plus eight M-14 rifles and ten .45-caliber automatic pistols.
  • Campus police at the University of Louisiana, Monroe, received 12 M-16s to help protect the 8,811 students there (or perhaps to keep them in line).
  • The warden service of Maine’s Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife received a small aircraft, 96 night vision goggles, 67 gun sights and seven M-14 rifles.”

Is it a good sign that California lawmakers are concerned about the 1033 program? Why does the Pentagon want to arm these police departments and organizations so heavily in the first place?

DoJ Stopping Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform

How The Justice Department Is Actively Preventing Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform

 

Submitted by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Screen Shot 2015-09-15 at 11.41.30 AM

Civil asset forfeiture is one of the most unethical and barbaric practices routinely performed by law enforcement in these United States today. Naturally, the Department of Justice is doing everything it can to protect the practice.

When I say that the rule of law is dead in America, I am not exaggerating. In fact, with each passing day it becomes increasingly obvious that the Justice Department not only has no interest in justice, it appears to view its primary role as coddling and protecting lawlessness amongst the so-called “elite” and their minions.

Today’s post proves the point once again. The state of California is in the process of passing a civil asset forfeiture bill, and in response, the DOJ is providing talking points to the California District Attorneys’ Association so that it can more effectively fight the bill. All of this after the DOJ had previously expressed faux support for civil asset forfeiture reform.

TechDirt reports:

At the beginning of this year, Attorney General Eric Holder attempted to close an exploitable loophole in asset forfeiture laws. State and local law enforcement agencies often sought federal “adoption” of seizures in order to route around statutes that dumped assets into general funds or otherwise limited them from directly profiting from these seizures. By partnering with federal agencies, local law enforcement often saw bigger payouts than with strictly local forfeitures.

The loophole closure still had its own loopholes (seizures for “public safety,” various criminal acts), but it did make a small attempt to straighten out some really perverted incentives. But deep down inside, it appears the DOJ isn’t really behind true forfeiture reform. In fact, it seems to be urging local law enforcement to fight these efforts by pointing out just how much money these agencies will “lose” if they can’t buddy up with Uncle Sam.

A cache of documents uncovered by the Institute for Justice today demonstrate that federal law enforcement officials in the Departments of Justice (DOJ) and Treasury are collaborating with local law enforcement organizations in California to undermine efforts to reform the state’s civil forfeiture laws. The California District Attorneys Association is circulating a set of emails from officials with the DOJ and Treasury indicating that the federal government would disqualify the state from receiving funds from the federal Equitable Sharing Program if it passes the pending reforms. The documents also reveal that the DOJ has already disqualified New Mexico from participating in the program, following passage of a sweeping civil forfeiture reform bill this spring.

The DOJ’s insertion into the legislative process begins with talking points delivered in emails that stress the amount of money agencies will be “losing” if they’re no longer allowed to federalize seizures. The documents show members of the Treasury Department affirming that California’s reform will “force” the DOJ to cut state law enforcement agencies out of the loop — supposedly because the Mother Ship can’t secure convictions fast enough.

Citing “resources, desire, or technical capability,” Treasury Executive Office for Asset Forfeiture Legal Counsel Melissa Nasrah wrote in an email to Santa Barbara Senior Deputy District Attorney Lee Carter, “I highly doubt our federal agencies can figure out whether a conviction occurred in any timely manner,” and “it seems the legislation, in effect, takes decision-making authority away from Treasury. Accordingly, I think I would still advise our policy officials here that it would be prudent to not share with CA agencies should this law be passed.”

Sure enough, the “warnings” from the feds are echoed in a letter from the California District Attorneys’ Association in opposition of the bill. The association expresses its abject dismay at the fact that law enforcement agencies might actually have to secure convictions to hold onto seized assets. According to the CDAA, asset forfeiture without accompanying convictions is a must because indictments and jail time alone aren’t punitive enough.

The current version of the bill would essentially deny every law enforcement agency in California direct receipt of any forfeited assets. California’s asset forfeiture law will be changed for the worse, and it will cripple the ability of law enforcement to forfeit assets from drug dealers when arrest and incarceration is an incomplete strategy for combatting drug trafficking.

That the DOJ has decided to pile on — despite its nominal reform efforts — is also less than shocking. After all, it takes a cut from every “adopted” investigation — all the while enabling local entities to bypass statutory safeguards meant to keep the abuse of civil forfeiture to a minimum.

Police The New “Highwaymen”

Civil Asset Forfeiture Has Enabled Police To Become The New “Highwaymen”

Submitted by Jeff Thomas via InternationalMan.com,

The Highwayman has a romantic image as a bold, 18th-century scallywag who would ride up to a coachload of aristocrats on his horse, shouting, “Stand and deliver!” Having relieved the aristocrats of their purses, he would gallop off.

Today, the Highwayman is being revived in a big way in the US. But, far from being a scofflaw, he is, in fact, the law. He wears a badge and the law protects him in his roadside robberies.

The revival is the result, in part, of both the defunding of police departments (creating a demand for law enforcement departments to seek money from other sources) and the encouragement of the federal government for an overall expansion of the police state.

The legal justification for such highway robbery is the police practice of civil forfeiture, which has been on the books for decades. Civil forfeiture allows law enforcement to seize property (including cash, cars, and even homes) without having to prove the owners are guilty of a crime.

In many cases, drivers are not charged with any crime at all, not even a traffic citation. In fact, one Florida sheriff has noted that the best targets are those who are obeying the speed law. He knows whereof he speaks, having seized over $6.5 million on the highways of Florida. (Quite an advance on the size of the purses seized by the 18th-century highwayman.)

Typically, police stop a car and make the usual request to see license and registration. If the driver asks why he was stopped, a vague explanation may be offered by the officer, or he may simply ignore the question, then demand a search of the car or the driver’s person. The officer then seizes cash and other valuables as potential “evidence” of a crime (suspected drug dealing is a common accusation).

In some cases, police threaten drivers that, if they are not cooperative, their children may be taken by Child Protective Services.

The burden of proof is on the driver. In order to regain his possessions, he must prove his innocence in a court. However, in most cases, no charges are made, so there is no court case to try. Whether charges are made or not, law enforcement agencies are entitled to keep 100% of the forfeiture proceeds. Although they are required to keep records on forfeiture, in many cases, police departments avoid or even refuse to provide such information when requested.

Although police may prey on people anywhere, including in small towns, the most prevalent location is on highways, the further from civilisation the better. In this way, the driver knows that he’s in the middle of nowhere facing a man with both a badge and a gun. He might consider himself lucky to be left with just his car, so that he can drive away from the robbery and not be left on the pavement with no car and no money. For many, this is enough incentive to allow police to take what they want…and not file any complaint.

Of course, these stops and seizures violate the Fourth Amendment right to freedom from unreasonable search and seizure and at least one state judge in California has described the practice as “an institutional corruption.” Conceptually, a driver can refuse to have his car or his person inspected and can attempt to prosecute the officer, but again, the burden of proof is on the driver. As a result, prosecutions are rare and successful prosecutions rarer still.

So, the Highwayman has returned, but he now wears a badge. What does this mean for the future? As social and economic conditions deteriorate in the US, will the country’s highways come to resemble a Mad Max scenario, but one in which many of the raiders are people in authority?

As with so many trends in the US, EU, and similar jurisdictions, this is one of many symptoms of overall social/moral/economic/governmental deterioration, a bellwether of continued decay.Whenever a country is so far along in its decline that its “peacekeepers” make a regular habit of robbing the people they’re paid to protect, and get away with it, we may conclude that further decline is to come and it may be time to exit this particular highway.

Unfortunately, when such crime exists from coast to coast, as it does with today’s institutionalised highwaymen, the solution is to seek out a better way of life in another country entirely. Fortunately, there are many countries where conditions are considerably better.

Editor’s Note: Because of the risk of civil forfeiture, we’ve published a groundbreaking, step-by-step manual on the three ESSENTIAL steps all Americans should take right now to protect themselves and their family.

These steps are easy and straightforward to implement. New York Times best-selling author Doug Casey and his team describe how you can do it all from home, with very little effort.

Google Machines to Hunt Humans?

Will Google’s New Robot Be Used To Hunt “Non-Cooperative” Humans?

http://www.thelastgreatstand.com/2015/09/05/will-googles-new-robot-be-used-to-hunt-non-cooperative-humans/

George Orwell’s 1984 was prophetic in ways beyond imaginable about a society that became not such a fun place right? He talked about an awful police state, kind of like the one we are moving toward at light speed… only correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t recall even 1984 having Humanoid Robots Capable of Hunting Down Humans Through the Woods, or mechanical attack dogs that might also be used in the near future to hunt humans. 

THINK OF HOW MUCH GOOGLE KNOWS ABOUT YOU…

AND THEY ARE 1000000% IN BED WITH UNCLE SAM!

First of all, if what I am saying is sounds crazy, when anyone can give me a rationale explanation as to why Google (of all companies) has androids that can hunt down human beings, I might entertain the thought that I am being overly suspicious. Until then, I’m much more inclined to say you are overly UNDER-INFORMED! You dig? I have facts on my side, and I’m about to share… feel free to dispute me all you want… but facts must be disputed with facts, not platitudes, so if you don’t read the links, don’t expect a response. 

Why don’t we start out with something light to advance my comment that Google and Uncle Sam are in bed by first introducing you to Google’s mechanical attack dog, that I’m SURE will never be weaponized in any way. PSHT! Like, that would be crazy right? Yeah, ok. Stay tuned. When you find out who is pulling the strings, and inventing this crazy stuff, see if sounds crazy then… 

Meet Spot. Spot is a four-legged robot designed for indoor and outdoor operation. It is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated. Spot has a sensor head that helps it navigate and negotiate rough terrain. Spot weighs about 160 lbs. Spot can shake off a human kicking him while trying to escape (even on ice). Doesn’t that sound sweet?

InfoWars Reports:

A new robot designed for the US Army by Google fits the criteria of a 2008 Pentagon request for the development of a system which could detect and track “non-cooperative” humans in “pursuit/evasion scenarios”.

Spot is the latest military robot developed by Boston Dynamics, which was bought by Google last year. The robot is far more agile than its larger predecessor, Big Dog, and can run around at high speed both outside and indoors.

Video footage of the new robot shows its ability to recover from being kicked, even on icy surfaces.

The fact that Spot can operate indoors is somewhat ominous given a 2008 Pentagon request for contractors to build, “A software and sensor package to enable a team of robots to search for and detect human presence in an indoor environment.”

The proposal called for the development of robots, “to search for and detect a non-cooperative human subject” during “pursuit/evasion scenarios,” directing that they have the ability to “intelligently and autonomously search”.

The New Scientist’s Paul Marks responded to the story by asking, “How long before we see packs of droids hunting down pesky demonstrators with paralyzing weapons? Or could the packs even be lethally armed?”

Steve Wright, an expert on police and military technologies from Leeds Metropolitan University, also warned that such robots would eventually be armed.

“The giveaway here is the phrase ‘a non-cooperative human subject’.”

“What we have here are the beginnings of something designed to enable robots to hunt down humans like a pack of dogs. Once the software is perfected we can reasonably anticipate that they will become autonomous and become armed.”

“We can also expect such systems to be equipped with human detection and tracking devices including sensors which detect human breath and the radio waves associated with a human heart beat. These are technologies already developed.

Robotics Professor Noel Sharkey has also repeatedly asserted that the robots being developed by Boston Dynamics will eventually be used for crowd control and to hunt down and kill people.

“If you have an autonomous robot then it’s going to make decisions who to kill, when to kill and where to kill them,” Sharkey told the Alex Jones Show. “The scary thing is that the reason this has to happen is because of mission complexity and also so that when there’s a problem with communications you can send a robot in with no communication and it will decide who to kill, and that is really worrying to me.”

If Google’s mechanized attack dog was the only odd story with Google, then I can see how I might seem a bit paranoid. On that note, let’s meet Google’s Humanoid Robot That Can Hunt Down Humans Through the WoodsAfter all, Google needs something like that right? Right now the humanoid has a power cord tethered to it, but in other research I’ve done, that is not required for its operation. In the video below, the cord is used because of the power consumed as a result of the duration of the tests, but also to report diagnostics back to the testers. It is believed Google will have a working model without the need for any tether soon. 

JUST AT THE 1:00 MARK BELOW, THE MACHINES TESTER SAYS THE FOLLOWING:

“Even with the tether, right now the machine has mobility that is RIGHT WITHIN SHOOTING RANGE of yours. Right now he can’t do EVERYTHING you can do, but as I’m sure you can imagine, if we keep pushing we’ll get there.”

I FEEL SAFE, HOW ABOUT YOU?

LET’S EXPLORE WHO’S BEHIND THIS MADNESS A BIT… 

In the post titled, Prepare to be Microchipped. This is Not a “Request,” you’ll learn who somewhat recently became the head of what is arguably the largest private Research and Development program on earth, and what her plans are. She is none other than former DARPA head Regina Dugan pictured below. Former heard of DARPA, as in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency… aka the black ops portion of the U.S. military. DARPA describes itself as:

… an independent agency of the United States Department of Defense (DOD) that focuses on developing cutting edge technology to ensure that the United States remains ahead of its enemies. The organization has contributed a number of technologies to the United States military and the world in general, including the groundwork for the Internet. Many of the workings of this agency are kept concealed from the public, in the interests of keeping its technology under wraps so that it is not exploited by other nations.

Darpa

INGESTIBLE RFID CHIPS? ALL TIN FOIL HAT STUFF RIGHT?

WRONG!

Guess what was a major topic of this year’s Bilderberg? Give up? None other than Google and Regina Dugan’s Ingestible RFID Microchips. Is all this starting to freak you out a bit?

IT SHOULD!

When you consider the New World Order/Bilderberg’s goal is to get humanity’s population down to no more than 500 million people (just ask Henry Kissinger, he loves talking about it), then this all looks pretty convenient doesn’t it? You’ve got the former head of the Department of Defense black ops program designing man hunting machines while at the same time designing and getting approval by the FDA for ingestible RFID chips that an be used to find you?

SURELY THIS CAN’T GET MUCH WORSE RIGHT?

WRONG!

Google knows absolutely everything there is to know about you. They probably know stuff about you that even you’ve forgotten about you.Allegedly, they do give you a way to delete your digital footprint with them, and I cover how to do that in, We Know Google Spies; What Secrets Do They Know About You? If/when Google gets people to ingest the chip, it probably doesn’t matter what they had on you, hence why they allow people to delete it, but that’s just speculation on my end. What is NOT speculation, is Google’s ties to Uncle Sam. Presumably that partnership is not for malevolent purposes. 

In the past there was the Roman Empire, the Ottoman Empire and the Persian Empire. Over here in 2015 we have the Google empire. No seriously, think about it! Google is on a one way train to total takeover. They do it first and they do it right. This means Google also knows a whole lot about you. There is a very good reason for that! Google has been a government operation from almost day one. Sure, Larry Page and Sergey Brin founded Google in September 1998, and that’s the story everyone hears about, HOWEVER, a team of investigators named INSURGE INTELLIGENCE came to some very disturbing findings in their studies titled:

How the CIA MADE Google – PART I

Why Google Made the NSA – PART II

You can laugh and cry “Conspiracy Theory,” all you want, or read can read their findings and you can learn something. Those articles are littered with so much concrete, verifiable proof that Uncle Sam has been involved from the beginning, they literally have record of the date and time of all the initial meetings between Page, Brin, the CIA, and the NSA, who the meetings were with inside the intelligence community, and where the meetings took place. You’d have better luck proving the sky is green than proving this is a “Conspiracy Theory,” but you have to read the findings first. 

In an earlier post this morning titled, Words and Deeds of The Founding Fathers vs. Politicians Today, it says the following:

“Patriots, at this crucial point in our nations history, information and knowledge are key, they mean the different between retaining or losing this republic.”    

Please, get informed and read those articles on Google above! The reason Google is so cooperative with government, and they remain in bed with the police state, is because the company was born out of the police state. In 1999, the CIA created its own venture capital investment firm, In-Q-Tel, to fund promising start-ups that might create technologies useful for intelligence agencies. Guess who they discovered very early on, and virtually oversaw the entire development of Google? You guessed it: Larry Page and Sergey Brin. 

INSURGE INTELLIGENCE, a new crowd-funded investigative journalism project, breaks the exclusive story of how the United States intelligence community funded, nurtured and incubated Google as part of a drive to dominate the world through control of information. Seed-funded by the NSA and CIA, Google was merely the first among a plethora of private sector start-ups co-opted by US intelligence to retain ‘information superiority.’

In the video below, everything I’ve said is confirmed by Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars. The video below goes even further and details why the articles I posted below are SO important, starting with the Google’s head of Research and Development, Regina Dugan, the former head of top secret government agency DARPA, and has made it her mission to see to it all Americans are implanted with an RFID chip. Enjoy the video, because the last one is the one nightmare’s are made of.

If you’ve already read the post, What the Media Won’t Dare Reveal to You About Jade Helm, then you already saw this video, and probably have no desire to see it again if you’ve managed to get the nightmares to go away. Otherwise, before you can fully grasp how scary these Google “manhunters” are, you should probably get some idea of the larger picture involved:

Jade Helm is more than a simple military exercise. If you understand the technologies, you will see that Jade Helm is more an intelligence operation using Geospatial Intelligence mapping. In military terminology, “the human domain,” or “the human domain analytics,” refers to anything dealing with people.  The battlefield of the future is not going to be between Nation states, rather there is literally a war on for your mind. It’s going to be about “Total Information Awareness.” He that controls information, controls. 

To briefly recap and save some time, “JADE” is an ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE software application the military is now using that allocates manpower and equipment on-the-fly based on prior experience, prior events, and the capability of being able to “predict criminal activity.” It is an A.I. application that learns which tactics and personnel were most successful in different scenarios, and then builds on its knowledge as it goes. That is what the “JADE” part of Jade Helm. JADE is taking the “helm” (lead) in this exercise, hence the title “JADE HELM.” The software itself that is running “Operation Jade Helm” is from a company called, “Palantir,” and we know Palantir was funded by the CIA. What we don’t know is whether Bilderberg Chief Peter Thiel asked the CIA to fund the program and build it for him, or if the CIA funded and built the program, and then asked Thiel to run it.

Either way, the CIA’s Frankenstein is being run by the New World Order’s Top Henchman, using YOUR tax dollars, positioning military assets at an alarming rate all over the country, and YOU are the pawn. By the way, I thought you might want to know the NSA named the project “SKYNET.” Remind you of any movies you’ve seen? [Hint: Terminator Series]. As if you’re not probably insanely creeped put already right now, you haven’t even seen the videos below, or heard the icing on the cake yet. I’ll save that for the end of the post. 

WARNING: THIS VIDEO IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART:

In the video below, which is about 30 minutes, but will feel like 30 second because you’ll be on the edge of your seat from start to finish, get a FULL picture of what “Jade Helm” and it’s Artificial Intelligence software are doing. Former guest host of Coast to Coast John B. Wells said the following of the video:

“EVEN IF EVERYTHING YOU SAID IS WRONG, AND I DON’T SUSPECT IT IS, IT’S STILL JUST SO COMPLEX, AND SO DIABOLICAL, AND SO SCREWED UP, BUT IN THIS BEAUTIFULLY ENGINEERED WAY, IT’S EXTRAORDINARILY MONSTROUS!”

I HAVE A GREAT IDEA…

LET’S ALL VOTE DEMOCRAT AND TRY TO GROW GOVERNMENT MORE!

IF THEY JUST HAD MORE POWER THEY COULD FIX THE PROBLEMS?

Very Serious Problems with WDBJ Story

Very Serious Problems with the WDBJ Shooting Story

by Scott Creighton

As a young man growing up in Lynchburg, I visited Smith Mountain Lake several times. It’s a beautiful location that brings back a lot of memories for me and I wish it hadn’t been used in such a manner as it was yesterday morning.

While some supposedly alternative websites are busy pushing any race-baiting angle they can come up with regarding this event, I’m going to take a slightly different tack, the one alternative sites USED to take before they all became to frightened to speak out. I’m going to evaluate it as an investigative journalist should, on it’s merits, and make a determination as to whether or not it’s a real tragedy or something else.

The story about WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward being shot on live television while doing a promotional spot for Smith Mountain Lake in Moneta, Virginia at 6:43 am is riddled with serious flaws and being covered in such a way as to remind me of all those phony “ISIS™” beheading videos that were anything but videos of someone being beheaded.

We’ll take them one at a time:

The “horrific” and “graphic” images that weren’t

If you remember back when they were still running those fake “ISIS™” videos of the staged beheadings that never seemed to happen on camera, you might recall a campaign emerged from the MSM telling people if they watched the actual videos that had been put out there, “ISIS™” would “win”

There was a major effort put out telling folks not to view the actual videos but instead just to take everyone’s word for it that they were “horrific” and “graphic” and they should hate “ISIS™” and support Obama’s re-engagement of Iraq and bombing of Syria and just leave it at that.

Well, there was a reason for that if you remember. It was because the videos were poorly made at first and not only did they not show people getting their heads cut off, they seemed to show some guy pretending to cut another guy’s neck with a plastic knife.

Of course they didn’t want you too see that because seeing those videos for what they were, or, more accurately, for what they weren’t, would harm the propaganda value of the project. It’s really just that simple.

Seems we have the same thing developing around this story as well.

Here is the actual New York Daily News cover that elicited such a response over it’s “graphic” image.

Embedded image permalink

Do you see anything “graphic” in that image? Seems to me he missed. I mean, after all, if you watch the full video that the man took himself, you can see her run away after he fired a number of shots at her at point blank range. She never seems to react to being hit by a hail of bullets at all. And in the case of this image, she clearly is doing the same thing right before she turns and runs down that deck.

So, you have to ask yourself, why the big deal about not showing the full video of the attack. Why is it being pulled everywhere it’s uploaded? Why are the MSM talking heads acting as if this is the most shocking thing they ever saw? It’s ridiculous. And speaking of ridiculous:

https://twitter.com/danabrams/status/636561965175951365?ref_src=twsrc

Heavy.com posted this dire warning before showing the video of the shooter POV video. Of course, there is no graphic content in the actual video itself.

bryce williams, lester lee flanagan, virginia shooting, moneta virginia shooting, news crew shot live tv, news crew shot at live tv virginia, virginia gunman opens fire news crew, news crew shooting live tv, pov, youtube, video, twitter

Graphic images have been shown on the MSM before. Real graphic images.

In this case, the Telegraph slightly blurred out an image of Mike Brown’s body lying dead in the street with a trail of blood coming from him. Is that more horrific than an image of a shooter missing a woman at point blank range?

In this case, CNN published then rebroadcast the iconic image of that burning monk in Vietnam. How many nightmares would that cause Dan Abrams?

And that’s too say nothing of what the Times UK published after 9/11:

That’s a horrific image. That will give you nightmares.

So you have to ask yourself why the big deal being made out of showing the images of this event when they were neither “horrific” nor “graphic”… and the answer is pretty obvious when you look at it realistically.

How did the shooter know where to find these two at 6:43 am?

Something that very few people seem to be asking is, to me, the most obvious: how did Vester Lee Flanagan know where they were going to be for the promo shoot?

Seems like another obvious question, doesn’t it? Smith Mountain Lake is an incredibly isolated area and it’s massive. Finding these three people in the remote location would be like finding a needle in a haystack and that’s assuming that somehow or another Vester was able to figure out they were doing a morning shoot there in the first place.

It’s about an hour from Roanoke and if you know anything about these kinds of promotional shoots, you know it takes about an hour to set one up which means if he had followed one of them from Roanoke, he would have had to have been staking out their cars somewhere around 3 or 4 am. Who does that?

I’m not ready for my close-up Mr. DeMille

This is probably one of the most damning aspects of this investigation of mine so I want you to follow along with me.

What I intend to show here is the fact that Mr. Flanagan was a bit early on his cue and hit his mark before he was supposed to, so he simply stepped back, waited, and then made his entrance again. This might actually be one of the main reasons they don’t want you watching that video.

And remember, he gets there ahead of time so he can set up his props as well. He’s got some kind of body camera on and his gun of course, but he also had to walk to the shoot location, supposedly without being seen by the three people involved in the promo. Ask yourself how that was possible, then go watch his video here.

It’s not “graphic”

Here are eight stills from that video in sequence.

12345678

What we have here is someone entering a scene, hitting his mark early, stepping as if he made an entrance onstage too soon and jumped back in the wings hoping no one would notice. Then, he waits, and resumes his entrance. The others take no notice of him, but that’s ridiculous. Of course they would notice him. How could they not notice him. He’s a large man with a gun pointed at them 4 feet away.

According to his “manifesto”, Flanagan was enraged at this woman. He was a “powder keg” just waiting to go off at her.

In it he wrote: ‘My anger has been building steadily…I’ve been a human powder keg for a while…just waiting to go BOOM!!!!’  Daily Mail

So why is it that he was so concerned about making sure the shooting aspect of the scene was on live TV? I thought he wanted to go “boom!!!”

Wouldn’t it be enough for him to shoot them and have the audience hear it? After all, he was recording it himself. He knew the video would be out there soon enough. So why wait? Why risk his big move? That camera man could have noticed him at any point and dropped his camera and grabbed the gun. After all, he was practically resting it on the guy’s shoulder. So why wait when all that could achieve would be to put his big plan at risk? If he and the cameraman start rolling around for the gun, the supposed target, the reporter, could get away. So why wait?

What was more important? Going “boom!!!”, exacting his revenge on her for something she had nothing to do with… or getting it on live TV? Apparently you have your answer.

He waited because the “shock and awe” aspect of the shooting was all about being live on TV. That’s how it worked. How it was scripted to work. Like the second plane hitting the South Tower 15 minutes after one hit the North Tower. Cameras were all there filming the burning building for live TV broadcasts and here comes another plane to slam into the other tower. Shock and awe.

That’s why he waited and that’s why they paid no attention to him.

When I was in high school back in ’84, I was an actor. We did a production of Anastasia in the round and I played Prince Bounine. The stage was set up with the audience seated on it and they were less than 10 feet from the action. This was before the musical version came out. As the play opened, there was a meeting taking place between myself and several other actors one of whom showed up late. Real late. Like 4 minutes or so. Those of us on stage had to improvise, cover for his absence and get the important information out that his character was supposed to introduce during the “meeting”

When he finally rushed on stage looking panicked, he immediately started in on his first lines, taking us way back to the first lines in the script. Others sat there staring at him not knowing what to do. Since I was “in charge” of the meeting, being Prince Bounine, I told him to “be silent” in my best Yule Brenner impersonation (I wasn’t a particularly good actor as a kid), told him to be silent and sit down. Since he chose to be late to our meeting, he could just sit there until we needed him. Which, to his credit, he did until we rounded back to a point in the script where he could figure out where we were and continue on with the play as normal.

New Brutality Claims – Gold Coast Cops

Gold Coast police brutality: Another alleged incident captured on CCTV

Watch the video 

THERE has been an explosion of allegations of police brutality on the Gold Coast, with shocking footage emerging of a recent attack. The Courier-Mail has obtained disturbing CCTV footage from inside the Surfers Paradise police station which shows a handcuffed Michael Cox, 29, being physically restrained and his head slammed into the tile floor. The footage shows Mr Cox and watchhouse officer Peter Nummy talking on a bench inside the station. Both men appear relaxed. At no point does Mr Cox lunge at the officer, but moments later the footage shows Officer Nummy twist Mr Cox’s handcuffed wrist backward and slam his head into floor.

The Courier-Mail showed the footage to a former detective who questioned the officer’s use of force.

Police yesterday confirmed they were aware of the matter and that Officer Nummy had not been disciplined.

Michael Cox is claiming compensation after an act of alleged brutality at Surfers Paradise police station.

Mr Cox has lodged a claim against the Queensland Police Service for more than $100,000 for pain and suffering caused by Officer Nummy on May 4 last year. Mr Cox was taken to the Surfers Paradise police station after he was victim to a random assault outside East Nightclub in Broadbeach.

Michael Cox and officer Peter Nummy speak on a bench.

Officer Nummy moves on Michael Cox.

Michael Cox is wrestled to the floor, slamming his head on a tile.

Court documents reveal Mr Cox told an officer: “I’m going mate, I just want to know that the other guy is going to get charged”, when he was asked to move on.

The male police officer then yelled: “You’re a (expletive) stupid (expletive) and I’m not your (expletive) mate” before arresting him for contravening a “move on” direction.

Mr Cox said the evening was a nightmare.

“I had to take six weeks off work because my wrist was broken,” Mr Cox said.

“If I walked down the road and broke someone’s wrist I’d be charged with assault, so why can the police get away with it?”

The revelations come as an internal review into the culture of Gold Coast police began this week, and the Crime and Corruption Commission decided no officer would be charged over another police bashing in the basement of the Surfers Paradise station. However an accused police whistleblower faces prosecution for allegedly leaking video of the incident to The Courier-Mail. CCC: Former internal investigator blasts finding PROBE: Police culture under review Shine Lawyers general manager Kimberly Allen said the CCTV footage shows a handcuffed Mr Cox “did not resist his arrest or threaten or demonstrate aggression to the officers”. The Courier-Mail can reveal solicitors across the Gold Coast have been inundated with inquiries from people who have suffered serious injuries allegedly at the hands of police. One law firm is currently handling more than 50 excessive force claims. Potts Lawyers director Bill Potts said his firm receives inquiries on a weekly basis from members of the public who have been “touched up” by police.

Nth Dakota Legalizes Weaponized Drones

North Dakota Becomes First State To Legalize Drones Weaponized With Tasers, Tear Gas, Rubber Bullets & Sound Cannons

Submitted by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

 It is now legal for law enforcement in North Dakota to fly drones armed with everything from Tasers to tear gas thanks to a last-minute push by a pro-police lobbyist.

With all the concern over the militarization of police in the past year, no one noticed that the state became the first in the union to allow police to equip drones with “less than lethal” weapons. House Bill 1328 wasn’t drafted that way, but then a lobbyist representing law enforcement—tight with a booming drone industry—got his hands on it

– From the Daily Beast article: First State Legalizes Taser Drones for Cops, Thanks to a Lobbyist

You could see the writing on the walls years ago. In an increasingly authoritarian, lawless, surveillance state like America, it was always inevitable that drones would be weaponized. In North Dakota, this is now a reality.

Although I haven’t written much about domestic drones as of late, I published many articles on the topic several years ago. In the 2012 piece, Drones in America? They are Already Here…I warned:

 Like with any new technology, drones can be put to good use or to evil use.  Just like nuclear power can harness energy or destroy humanity altogether, drones could do a lot of good, but the problem is that the government is clearly moving more and more towards a surveillance state so we must be extra careful.  Stay vigilant.

Apparently, North Dakotans weren’t particularly vigilant, and now the state has become the first in the nation to legalize weaponized drones; not a distinction they should be proud of. What started out as a bill to require police using drones for surveillance obtain warrants, turned into a law that puts tasers and tear gas on them. Go ‘Merica.

The Daily Beast reports:

It is now legal for law enforcement in North Dakota to fly drones armed with everything from Tasers to tear gas thanks to a last-minute push by a pro-police lobbyist

With all the concern over the militarization of police in the past year, no one noticed that the state became the first in the union to allow police to equip drones with “less than lethal” weapons. House Bill 1328 wasn’t drafted that way, but then a lobbyist representing law enforcement—tight with a booming drone industry—got his hands on it.

The bill’s stated intent was to require police to obtain a search warrant from a judge in order to use a drone to search for criminal evidence. In fact, the original draft of Rep. Rick Becker’s bill would have banned all weapons on police drones.

Then Bruce Burkett of North Dakota Peace Officer’s Association was allowed by the state house committee to amend HB 1328 and limit the prohibition only to lethal weapons. “Less than lethal” weapons like rubber bullets, pepper spray, tear gas, sound cannons, and Tasers are therefore permitted on police drones

Even “less than lethal” weapons can kill though. At least 39 people have been killed by police Tasers in 2015 so far, according to The Guardian. 

And just in case you’re wondering why North Dakota rolled over so easily. The state is desperate for “economic growth,” even if that growth expands GDP via fascist panopticon surveillance.

Drones in North Dakota are a profitable enterprise in a state hit hard by the oil bust. Companies that market machines for agricultural and commercial use have been popping up in industrial parks on the outskirts of Grand Forks for the better part of the last three years. The university, one of the city’s largest employers, even offers a four-year degree in drones. The Air Force has partnered with the private sector to create a drone research and development park, too.

Drones are overwhelmingly seen as a good thing in North Dakota, which is perhaps why few noticed when HB 1328 passed with a clause allowing them to be armed with non-lethal weapons.

Because it’s imperative to national security that we make this, so much easier…

Great work North Dakota. Let’s hope the rest of us aren’t so hopelessly stupid.

Govts Admit To False Flag Terror

From Washington’s blog via GlobalResearch.ca,

Governments Admit They Carry Out False Flag Terror

Governments from around the world admit they carry out false flag terror:

  • A major with the Nazi SS admitted at the Nuremberg trials that – under orders from the chief of the Gestapo – he and some other Nazi operatives faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland. Nazi general Franz Halder also testified at the Nuremberg trials that Nazi leader Hermann Goering admitted to setting fire to the German parliament building, and then falsely blaming the communists for the arson
  • Soviet leader  Nikita Khrushchev admitted in writing that the Soviet Union’s Red Army shelled the Russian village of Mainila in 1939, and declared that the fire originated from Finland as a basis launching the Winter War four days later
  • Israel admits that an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind “evidence” implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers, and several of the Israelis later confessed) (and see this and this)
  • The CIA admits that it hired Iranians in the 1950′s to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected prime minister
  • As admitted by the U.S. government, recently declassified documents show that in the 1960′s, the American Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a plan to blow up AMERICAN airplanes (using an elaborate plan involving the switching of airplanes), and also to commit terrorist acts on American soil, and then to blame it on the Cubans in order to justify an invasion of Cuba. See the following ABC news reportthe official documents; and watch this interview with the former Washington Investigative Producer for ABC’s World News Tonight with Peter Jennings.
  • 2 years before, American Senator George Smathers had suggested that the U.S. make “a false attack made on Guantanamo Bay which would give us the excuse of actually fomenting a fight which would then give us the excuse to go in and [overthrow Castro]“.
  • And Official State Department documents show that – only nine months before the Joint Chiefs of Staff plan was proposed – the head of the Joint Chiefs and other high-level officials discussed blowing up a consulate in the Dominican Republic in order to justify an invasion of that country. The 3 plans were not carried out, but they were all discussed as serious proposals
  • The South African Truth and Reconciliation Council found that, in 1989, the Civil Cooperation Bureau (a covert branch of the South African Defense Force) approached an explosives expert and asked him “to participate in an operation aimed at discrediting the ANC [the African National Congress] by bombing the police vehicle of the investigating officer into the murder incident”, thus framing the ANC for the bombing
  • An Algerian diplomat and several officers in the Algerian army admit that, in the 1990s, the Algerian army frequently massacred Algerian civilians and then blamed Islamic militants for the killings (and see this video; and Agence France-Presse, 9/27/2002, French Court Dismisses Algerian Defamation Suit Against Author)
  • Senior Russian Senior military and intelligence officers admit that the KGB blew up Russian apartment buildings and falsely blamed it on Chechens, in order to justify an invasion of Chechnya (and see this report and this discussion)
  • According to the Washington Post, Indonesian police admit that the Indonesian military killed American teachers in Papua in 2002 and blamed the murders on a Papuan separatist group in order to get that group listed as a terrorist organization.
  • The well-respected former Indonesian president also admits that the government probably had a role in the Bali bombings
  • As reported by BBC, the New York Times, and Associated Press, Macedonian officials admit that the government murdered 7 innocent immigrants in cold blood and pretended that they were Al Qaeda soldiers attempting to assassinate Macedonian police, in order to join the “war on terror”.
  • Former Department of Justice lawyer John Yoo suggested in 2005 that the US should go on the offensive against al-Qaeda, having “our intelligence agencies create a false terrorist organization. It could have its own websites, recruitment centers, training camps, and fundraising operations. It could launch fake terrorist operations and claim credit for real terrorist strikes, helping to sow confusion within al-Qaeda’s ranks, causing operatives to doubt others’ identities and to question the validity of communications.”
  • United Press International reported in June 2005:

    U.S. intelligence officers are reporting that some of the insurgents in Iraq are using recent-model Beretta 92 pistols, but the pistols seem to have had their serial numbers erased. The numbers do not appear to have been physically removed; the pistols seem to have come off a production line without any serial numbers. Analysts suggest the lack of serial numbers indicates that the weapons were intended for intelligence operations or terrorist cells with substantial government backing. Analysts speculate that these guns are probably from either Mossad or the CIA. Analysts speculate that agent provocateurs may be using the untraceable weapons even as U.S. authorities use insurgent attacks against civilians as evidence of the illegitimacy of the resistance.

  • Undercover Israeli soldiers admitted in 2005 to throwing stones at other Israeli soldiers so they could blame it on Palestinians, as an excuse to crack down on peaceful protests by the Palestinians
  • Quebec police admitted that, in 2007, thugs carrying rocks to a peaceful protest were actually undercover Quebec police officers (and see this)
  • At the G20 protests in London in 2009, a British member of parliament saw plain clothes police officers attempting to incite the crowd to violence
  • A Colombian army colonel has admitted that his unit murdered 57 civilians, then dressed them in uniforms and claimed they were rebels killed in combat
  • U.S. soldiers have admitted that if they kill innocent Iraqis and Afghanis, they then “drop” automatic weapons near their body so they can pretend they were militants
  • The highly-respected writer for the Telegraph Ambrose Evans-Pritchard says that the head of Saudi intelligence – Prince Bandar – admitted last the Saudi government controls “Chechen” terrorists

So Common … There’s a Name for It

This tactic is so common that it was given a name for hundreds of years ago.

“False flag terrorism” is defined as a government attacking its own people, then blaming others in order to justify going to war against the people it blames. Or as Wikipedia defines it:

 False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to appear as if they are being carried out by other entities.

The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one’s own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations, and have been used in peace-time; for example, during Italy’s strategy of tension.

The term comes from the old days of wooden ships, when one ship would hang the flag of its enemy before attacking another ship in its own navy. Because the enemy’s flag, instead of the flag of the real country of the attacking ship, was hung, it was called a “false flag” attack.

Indeed, this concept is so well-accepted that rules of engagement for navalair and land warfare all prohibit false flag attacks.

Leaders Throughout History Have Acknowledged False Flags

Leaders throughout history have acknowledged the danger of false flags:

 “This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector.”

- Plato

“If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.”
- U.S. President James Madison

“A history of false flag attacks used to manipulate the minds of the people! “In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations, and epochs it is the rule.”
? Friedrich Nietzsche

“Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death”.
- Adolph Hitler

“Why of course the people don’t want war … But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship … Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”

- Hermann Goering, Nazi leader.

“The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. [The public] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened”.

- Josef Stalin

People Are Waking Up to False Flags

People are slowly waking up to this whole con job by governments who want to justify war.

More people are talking about the phrase “false flag” than ever before.

14 Cops Gang Up On Homeless Man

14 San Francisco cops gang up on one-legged homeless man ‘armed’ with crutches

This post was originally published on Middle East Post.

It took 14 San Francisco Police Department officers to take down and restrain a one-legged, black homeless man, armed with crutches and apparently dangerous. The incident is the latest embarrassment for the US police, who face constant accusations of unreasonable use of force.

The confrontation was captured on video released by journalist Chaedria LaBouvier via blog platform Medium, and shows white police officers taking down a one-legged homeless black man on the city’s central Market street. According to witnesses, police were called in to the scene to take care of a suspicious man waving some “sticks” around.

The video of the incident which happened on August 4, shows the extent of humiliation and brute force exercised immediately after the man was wrestled to the ground by SFPD officers. As the disabled male struggles to move, cops pin him down.

“These are my crutches. I use these to walk,” the man tried to explain. But even after realizing that the man had a prosthetic leg, the police continued to use overwhelming physical restrain and man-handled him, forcing his head to the ground.

In further efforts to subdue a man already on the ground with four people on top of him, the officers stood on his prosthetic leg and “twisted it around even after they had cuffed him and pinned him to the piss-stained concrete,” LaBouvier noted.

Beaten to the ground, the suspect at one point said, “what the f**k is you doing this to me?” as more officers arrived to form a cordon around the incident area. “Is this respectable? When I say ‘no’, is this what you do to me?” the man said.

Witnesses spoke out against police brutality from the start of the video but to no avail as cops continued to abuse the one legged man. The camera operator especially noted the “lack of respect” for the suspect as clothes were pulled off the man during the incident. First one can see the man’s buttocks being exposed, and minutes later his entire back.

Around 6 minutes into the footage, the suspect began saying that he was in pain from the take-down and claimed he had been suffering from an infectious sore on one of his legs.

At one point, fearing for his life, the man said said “they’re going to shoot me”. A witness replied:“They ain’t gonna shoot you man, that’s why we have these cameras out here.”

The latest incident comes a year since unarmed black teen Michael Brown was shot by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Anger and protests engulfedthe St. Louis suburb and spread nationwide, giving birth to the Black Lives Matter movement. They were exacerbated further by the subsequent deaths of black suspects during encounters with US police. The movement with its continued protests highlights racial tensions between police and the communities they serve.

Cop Assaults Disabled Veteran

Cop Assaults Disabled-Veteran For Parking In Handicap Spot


 BY 

PNG28-1.png

Isaah James is a 28 year-old Veteran of the US Army. He is a combat veteran who has served two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, James was on the receiving end of 3 separate IED’s during service, and is currently a 90% service-connected disabled veteran.

His disabilities, which included numerous lower-extremity injuries and traumatic brain injury, limits how long and how far he can walk. Rightfully so, James was given a disabled/handicapped placard which allows him to park in handicap accessible parking.

On the day this video was taken, James was shopping at a local Walgreens store when he decided to park in the handicap parking spot. Apparently, Officer G. Wilson, of the Riviera Beach Police Department, has a medical degree (sarcasm) and assessed James’ medical situation instantaneously. Officer G Wilson was able to determine that James did not look ‘disabled enough’ to park in that particular spot. (The RPD only lists one ‘Wilson’ on their roster. His name is Garry Wilson)

When the officer told James that he didn’t looked ‘disabled enough’, he had this to say:

You don’t look well enough to be an officer with your gut hanging over your (pants). I didn’t say shit to you.

James goes on to tell the officer that he can run his plates and that everything is legal. For whatever reason, this enrages the officer, who turns around and assaults James, yelling at him to ‘get the camera out of my face’.

This is another perfect example of cops not knowing the laws they are supposed to enforce. Officer Wilson tells James that “You are supposed to be indigent” to get a disabled placard. According to Florida Statutes, it states that a disability placard may be granted to a citizen who has a limited ability to walk due to medical condition, and that a licensed physician must certify such disability. Nowhere in the Florida statutes does it say a person must be ‘indigent’, as the officer claims.

As long as we are on the subject of correcting the all-knowing Officer Wilson, ‘Indigent’ means a person who is poor or needy, not disabled. Maybe the Riviera Beach Police Department should start issuing a copy of Florida Statutes, and possibly a dictionary, to future recruits.

I would also like to point out, in the State of Florida, assaulting a disabled adult (including Disabled Veterans), is a 3rd Degree Felony. I sincerely hope that Mr. James presses charges against the cop for assaulting him and for destroying personal property.

Acquitted Cop Arrested For Domestic Violence

Cop Acquitted In Murder Of Kelly Thomas Just Arrested For Domestic Violence

Submitted by Sydney Barakat via TheAntiMedia.org,

Manuel Ramos, 41, the former Fullerton police officer who was ultimately acquitted after being tried for the beating and killing of Kelly Thomas, has been arrested once more—this time for domestic violence.

Thomas—an unarmed, mentally-ill homeless man—was brutally beaten to death by Ramos and two fellow officers in the summer of 2011. Two of the officers—Ramos, as well as Jay Cicinelli—were tried and acquitted of the murder. From the beginning, the case received nationwide coverage. A slew of peaceful protests resulted from the several injustices that were committed in this gut-wrenching case of excessive violence and abuse of power.

Now, Ramos has been arrested again. As ABC7 news reported,

 “Police respond[ed] to a report of a family disturbance [and] arrested Manuel Ramos on July 16 after he allegedly assaulted a woman in the 3600 block of W. Oak Avenue.”

 Ramos was then booked on the charge of misdemeanor domestic violence, but soon after posted bail and was released. According to the report, the case still remains under investigation.

This goes to show that when violent criminals are granted impunity, when they are let off the hook without even a slap on the wrist, they will continue their horrendous cycle of abuse of power and violence. When these murderers are exonerated without consequence, they are assisted in committing further assaults—in this case, domestic violence.

Manuel-Ramos-mugshots

Does Ramos lack so much compassion that he must beat the defenseless? First a mentally-ill man who was small in stature, then a woman.

What is more ridiculous is that journalists and live-streamers who covered the Kelly Thomas case are being dragged through a long and tedious court ordeal. They are facing charges, trials, and time in prison for simply filming and documenting the protests that occurred as result of the officers’ acquittals. Our own Patti Beers—also known as “P.M.” on her social media accounts—is facing such absurd charges for filming the acquittal protests. Patti’s trial has been covered by the Anti-MediaThe Fifth ColumnOC Weekly,AnonHQ, and more.

This case of police brutality and major injustices committed by law enforcement force us to ask:

 when will this horrendous cycle of violence end? When will the law be lawful? When will the justice system deliver justice?

The issues extend far beyond Manuel Ramos, but if we let this cowardly badged thug go without consequence again, we are allowing for more of his kind to continue coming out of the woodworks. Additionally, if we allow journalists— real journalists like Patti Beers—to be tried for performing her civic duty—well, that’s just pouring salt in an already gaping wound.

Cops Kill Unarmed Mother

Dashcam: Cops Kill Unarmed Mother, Applaud their Marksmanship, Brag About her Face Exploding

Brunswick, GA — Caroline Small was at a low point in her life. She suffered from PTSD, Dissociative Disorder, and was struggling with drugs and alcohol. These things should have never been a death sentence, but thanks to two Georgia cops, they were.

An eye-opening investigation by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Channel 2 Action News was published earlier this month that shines a much-needed light on this case. The report illustrates the tragic events leading up to the killing of Caroline Small and the subsequent special privilege granted to the officers who killed her which would allow them to get off scot-free — and keep their jobs.

On June 18, 2010, Small was sitting in a mall parking lot in her car when a citizen allegedly saw her “doing drugs,” so they called police. When police showed up, Small, who was in an obvious diminished mental state, drove off. A police chase ensued.

During the chase, which never exceeded 35 mph, Small’s tires were blown out by spike strips. She was then pinned by two cruisers and a utility pole and riding only on her rims. Her car was effectively rendered immobilized.

smith-pinned-in

However, Small, who was in the midst of a mental crisis, continued pressing the accelerator, even though the car was not able to move but a few inches.

At this point, Georgia State Patrol Trooper Jonathan Malone is seen running behind Small’s car in an attempt to remove her from the vehicle. But Malone quickly runs away after he notices Glynn County officers Sgt. Robert C. Sasser and Officer Michael T. Simpson with their service weapons pointed direct at him, with Small’s head being the primary target.

Malone pleaded with the officers to let him get Small out of the vehicle.

“Let me get out there and get her out,” Malone calls out to the other officers, according to the GBI audio transcripts.

“Hold on, hold on,” one unknown officer responds.

“If she moves the car, I’m going to shoot her,” Simpson says.

Seconds later, Sasser and Simpson unleash a volley of gunfire into the face of Caroline Small.

After the shooting, Sasser and Simpson can be heard discussing their kill.

“Where did you hit her?” Simpson asks, according to a GBI transcript.

“I hit her right in the face,” Sasser says.

“I watched the bridge of her nose…I pulled the trigger and I watched it hit her at the same time I think I fired,” Simpson says.

smith-hunched-over

When an EMT showed up to the scene, Simpson waved him off, trusting that his stellar marksmanship had done the job, and she was dead. However, Small was holding on for dear life, and those crucial moments could have been the difference between life and death. Small would never regain consciousness, but she didn’t succumb to her injuries until a week after the shooting.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution/Channel 2 Action News investigation of the case found that:

• Glynn County police officers interfered with the GBI’s investigation from the start, seeking to protect the officers.

• The department tampered with the crime scene and created misleading evidence that was shown to the grand jury.

• The local district attorney shared the state’s evidence with the officers nearly two months before the grand jury convened and cut an unusual deal with them just before it met.

With the special treatment given to the Glynn County police by the other law enforcement agency “investigating” them, they were able to successfully convince a grand jury that they “feared for their lives.” Neither of the officers faced any discipline and both were returned to full duty.

One of the members of that grand jury, Byron Bennett, has come out publicly stating that he regrets his decision.

“I felt like I let that lady down,” he said. “I felt like they killed that lady. They didn’t give her a chance.”

One of the GBI investigators who supervised the criminal investigation into the shooting told the AJC that the shooting was unjust.

“This is the worst one I’ve ever investigated,” said Mike McDaniel, a retired GBI agent. “I don’t think it’s a good shoot. I don’t think it’s justified.”

Even the lead investigator says that this was unjustified, yet these two cops are still out on the street, “protecting and serving.” So turn the brutal, rusty, and bloody cogs of the American justice system.

Police Cover-Up – Sandra Bland

Police Cover-Up: Chilling Final Words Mysteriously Slain Targeted Woman Screamed to Brutal Texas Cop after Ripped from Car, Slammed to Ground

(Before It’s News)

Sandra Bland  screamed at Texas State Troopers, “You just slammed my head to the ground. Do you not even care about that?”  Those were among last words of the 28-year-old, apparently a Targeted Individual (TI). The police agency involved in the case are now trying to get away with policing themselves after Bland was found dead in her Waller County, Texas, jail cell Monday at 9 a.m, 72 hours after assaulted. Police claim she committed suicide, sparking outrage.

What Happened to Sandra Bland?

Friday, Texas State troopers pulled Bland over as she drove to her new job. Police allege she did not use the turn signals during a lane change. What happened next was all too familiar and terrifying.

An eye-witness says police ripped Sandra out of the car, violently slammed her on the ground, and arrested her as she screamed for help. Only 72 two hours later, she was dead.

Police claim Bland took her own life. Her family and friends don’t believe it. Local District Attorney Elton Mathis has stated he has no reason to expect foul play and handed the investigation to the same police agency that arrested Sandra.

“Police cannot police themselves. Urge Attorney General Lynch to thoroughly investigate Sandra’s death and hold all those responsible fully accountable,” says Color of Change.

After a video emerged today of the police assault on Bland, outrage across the nation increased. An officer can be heard in the video demanding the person videoing stop.

District Attorney Mathis stated there was no reason for concern, despite the fact that an allegedly routine traffic stopped turned into a violent arrest is itself a cause for concern. Sandra’s family says that Sandra would never kill herself and that police seem to be covering up her death.

“We must demand that local officials release all video, information and photographs relating to Sandra’s unjust arrest, imprisonment and death,” says Color of Change..

A more graphic video of Bland’s arrest was posted by BBC@World in which she can be heard yelling, “I can’t hear. I can’t even hear!”

(ED: This Video Has now been removed by YouTube.  Hmmm)

The local police department, sheriff and prosecutor’s office have a long history of racism and corruption. Last year, DA Mathis threatened a local Reverend who spoke out about racist prosecutions, saying he would release his “hounds” on the Reverend. Waller County Sheriff Glenn Smith was fired from the police department in Hempstead, Texas for documented cases of racism.

According to Bland’s loved ones, she was a compassionate woman, with a bright future.

[READ: Activist Sandra Bland Death Investigation Explodes: Top Officials’ Documented with History of Targeting Blacks]

Today would have been her first day at her new job as a student outreach at her alma mater, Prairie View A&M University. Bright, spirited, with a thirst for life is how her loved ones described her.

She was also probably a targeted individual (TI) for being a vocal advocate against police brutality and often speaking about ending racism and police violence. Did police just happen to be where she was to violently arrest her? Or, were they stalking her, spying on her, waiting for her to make some small human error to brutalize her?

“Our hearts and minds are with her friends and family as they move through this unimaginably hard time,” Color Of Change stated in a statement. “But in a world where Black people are stereotyped as ‘violent’ and police exist to enforce the boundaries of a deeply divided and racist society, who Sandy was or the life she was creating, did not matter. What mattered was that she was Black, and therefore, in the eyes of the law, didn’t deserve respect, didn’t deserve her civil rights, her freedom or her life. To be Black in America, is to be safe nowhere.”

But what about white women attacked by black police officers, some cry. Facts are facts. Black women are 3 to 4 times more likely to be targeted by police and incarcerated than white women. (Incarcerated Women, The Sentencing Project 08-2015, Online: http://act.colorofchange.org/go/5005?t=13&akid=4541.83518.lyOMow)

Meow Mix commented: “When is the last time you got pulled over for failing to signal? I suppose you signal all the time because you are perfect. I could believe it if she ran a red light or was speeding. But in this case failing to signal should be read as “driving while black” and it seems that is illegal in that town.

The Department of Justice and Attorney General Lynch have power and a responsibility to address systemic police violence targeting Black communities.

“The reality is, racism, corruption and a deep-seated culture of secrecy prevents local and state police from holding themselves accountable. Without independent oversight, police will continue to kill and prosecutors will continue to do nothing,” says Color of Change. “We should not have to demand justice, every time a Black person is murdered, but we will continue to do so until the justice system respects Black lives.”

Urge Attorney General Lynch to thoroughly investigate Sandra’s death and hold all those responsible fully accountable.
