10 Signs That The Highways Of America Are Being Transformed Into A High Tech Prison Grid

Once upon a time, the open highways of America were one of our greatest symbols of liberty and freedom.  Anyone could hop in a car and set off for a new adventure at any time and even our music encouraged us to “get our kicks on route 66”.  But today everything has changed.  Now the highways of America are being steadily transformed into a high tech prison grid.  All over the country, thousands upon thousands of surveillance cameras watch our highways and automated license plate readers are actually being used to track vehicle movements in some of our largest cities.  Many state and local governments have come to view our highways as money machines and our control freak politicians have established a vast network of toll booths, red light cameras and speed traps to keep cash endlessly pouring in.  If all of that wasn’t enough, TSA “VIPR teams” are now hitting the interstates and conducting thousands of “unannounced security screenings” each year.  Driving on the highways of America used to be a great joy, but now “Big Brother” is rapidly sucking all of the fun out of it.  Eventually, it may get to the point where Americans simply dread having to go out on the highway.


The following are 10 signs that the highways of America are being transformed into a high tech prison grid….

#1 Surveillance Cameras

All over the United States, a vast network of surveillance cameras is carefully watching our highways.  The following is an excerpt from a recent article in the Baltimore Sun about this phenomenon….

The room is large and well lit, and it buzzes with activity even though its occupants remain seated.

The video screen at the front of the room is as wide as an IMAX, though not quite as tall. It consists of 64 smaller screens – 16 columns of four apiece – that monitor every inch of interstate between Great Wolf Lodge and the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. There is an emphasis on tunnels and bridges, and one corner screen is tuned in to a 24-hour weather report.

If you are driving on an highway in Hampton Roads, VDOT is watching you.

#2 Automated License Plate Readers

In a previous article, I detailed how automated license plate readers are being used to track the movements of every single vehicle that enters Washington D.C.

A recent Washington Post article explained that most people do not even know that they are there….

More than 250 cameras in the District and its suburbs scan license plates in real time, helping police pinpoint stolen cars and fleeing killers. But the program quietly has expanded beyond what anyone had imagined even a few years ago.

With virtually no public debate, police agencies have begun storing the information from the cameras, building databases that document the travels of millions of vehicles.

Nowhere is that more prevalent than in the District, which has more than one plate-reader per square mile, the highest concentration in the nation. Police in the Washington suburbs have dozens of them as well, and local agencies plan to add many more in coming months, creating a comprehensive dragnet that will include all the approaches into the District.

A lot of police cruisers are being outfitted with this technology around the nation as well.

So if you see a police car pull up behind you, there is a very good chance that a computer has already read your license plate and is giving the officer all of your information.

#3 Ridiculous Regulations

Some of the new “auto safety laws” going in around the nation are absolutely absurd.

For example, do you buckle up your pet when you go for a ride?  Well, in New Jersey you can now be fined up to $1000 for not having your pet properly restrained while you are out driving.

#4 Outrageous Fines

In many areas of the country, unpaid traffic tickets can rapidly become a major financial burden.

For example, the new tolls on the 520 floating bridge in Seattle are absolutely killing some commuters…..

Registered vehicle owners who do not pay their toll within 80 days or more will be mailed a $40 civil penalty for each unpaid toll transaction in addition to a $5 reprocessing fee.

WSDOT confirmed some tolls plus penalty fees have added up to more than $1,000.

#5 Oppressive Toll Roads

Toll roads have become one of the favorite “revenue raising tools” for our politicians.

At this point the tolls on some roads have become so incredibly oppressive that many people simply cannot afford to drive on them anymore.

And for some reason the toll increases are coming especially fast and furious this year.

A recent USA Today article summarized some of the oppressive toll increases that we are seeing all over the nation….

•California and Washington authorized high-occcupancy toll (HOT) lanes, where tolls rise or fall depending on traffic flow. Texas enacted laws authorizing private toll roads and allowing regional authorities to collect tolls. Indiana removed a provision requiring legislative approval for toll roads.

•Some Maryland tolls will double this year as the state seeks money to rehabilitate aging roads, bridges and tunnels.

The use of tolls on interstate highways also is spreading:

•Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, a Republican, just won approval from the Federal Highway Administration to add tolls on Interstate 95 in his state. The state estimates that tolls on the heavily traveled corridor could generate $250 million over the first five years for expanding, improving and maintaining the highway.

•New York and New Jersey recently announced that E-ZPass commuters will pay $1.50 more and cash customers $2 more to cross bridges and tunnels between the two states.

•Georgia just created toll lanes on Interstate 85 in suburban Atlanta.

The toll hikes are more than chump change: Cash tolls on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge jumped to $4 from $2.50, and to $12 from $8 on all the New York-New Jersey Hudson River crossings.

Toll roads are one of my pet peeves.  Any time I see a toll booth it immediately puts me in a bad mood.

#6 Red Light Cameras

Red light cameras are another favorite “revenue raising tool” for the control freaks that run things.

Unfortunately, these cameras don’t always work right so a lot of innocent people end up getting ticketed.

But politicians love them because they can raise a lot of cash.  The following is from a recent Business Insider article….

According to U.S. PIRG (Public Interest Research Group), nearly 700 U.S. cities and towns installed the cameras, which accounted for more than 90 percent of tickets issued for illegal right turns, or rolling stops.

In one New Jersey town, PIRG found 2,500 tickets were issued at one intersection within the first two months of installing a camera.

#7 Speed Traps

In the old days, speed traps were mostly about making the roads safer.

Today, they are mostly about raising money.

One police chief up in Michigan has even admitted that the nature of his job has fundamentally changed….

“When I first started in this job 30 years ago, police work was never about revenue enhancement, but if you’re a chief now, you have to look at whether your department produces revenues.”

Speed traps are becoming more common almost everywhere, but some areas of the country are worse than others.

A recent report from the National Motorists Association ranked how likely you are to get a speeding ticket in each of the 50 U.S. states….

After crunching the numbers, the NMA found that Nevada is the state most likely to issue you a traffic ticket, followed by Georgia and Alabama. In 2010 Florida took the top spot and Georgia and Nevada tied for second place.

The state where you’re least likely to get ticketed is Wyoming, followed closely by Montana. These two ranked at the bottom in 2010 as well.

#8 Government Spying

It has been revealed that the federal government has been secretly putting GPS tracking devices on thousands of vehicles in order to track the movements of people that they are interested in watching.

Most of the time the people involved have not even been charged with any crimes.

The following is a short excerpt from a recent Wired magazine article about this phenomenon….

The 25-year-old resident of San Jose, California, says he found the first one about three weeks ago on his Volvo SUV while visiting his mother in Modesto, about 80 miles northeast of San Jose. After contacting Wired and allowing a photographer to snap pictures of the device, it was swapped out and replaced with a second tracking device. A witness also reported seeing a strange man looking beneath the vehicle of the young man’s girlfriend while her car was parked at work, suggesting that a tracking device may have been retrieved from her car.

Then things got really weird when police showed up during a Wired interview with the man.

The young man, who asked to be identified only as Greg, is one among an increasing number of U.S. citizens who are finding themselves tracked with the high-tech devices.

The Justice Department has said that law enforcement agents employ GPS as a crime-fighting tool with “great frequency,” and GPS retailers have told Wired that they’ve sold thousands of the devices to the feds.

#9 Extraction Devices

If you get pulled over by police, you never know what to expect these days.  Previously, I have written about how law enforcement authorities in some parts of the U.S. are using “extraction devices” to download data out of the cell phones of motorists that they pull over.

The following is how a recent article on CNET News described the capabilities of these “extraction devices”….

The devices, sold by a company called Cellebrite, can download text messages, photos, video, and even GPS data from most brands of cell phones. The handheld machines have various interfaces to work with different models and can even bypass security passwords and access some information.

#10 VIPR Teams

If all of the above was not bad enough, now we have to deal with TSA “VIPR teams” terrorizing us on the highways.

If you regularly travel across the country, there is a good chance that you have already encountered one of their “unannounced security screenings”.

The following is from a local news report down in Tennessee about how local authorities are working with VIPR teams to fight “terrorism” on the interstates….

You’re probably used to seeing TSA’s signature blue uniforms at the airport, but now agents are hitting the interstates to fight terrorism with Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR).

“Where is a terrorist more apt to be found? Not these days on an airplane more likely on the interstate,” said Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security Commissioner Bill Gibbons.

Tuesday Tennessee was first to deploy VIPR simultaneously at five weigh stations and two bus stations across the state.

TSA VIPR teams now conduct approximately 8,000 “unannounced security screenings” at subway stations, bus terminals, seaports and highway rest stops each year.

Are you starting to see what I am talking about?

All of this “security” is becoming extremely oppressive.

We don’t need “Big Brother” constantly watching us, tracking us and fining us on our highways.

So do you have any examples of how the highways of America are being transformed into a high tech prison grid to add to the list above?

    Wait till they bring the 30,000 drones home and use them against us. This does not look so good.

  • Sandy

    Cheer up guys for it could always be worse. We have most of that up here in Canada plus $6/gallon gas. In fact if gas keeps going up I won’t have to worry about any of the resented restrictions!

    • Ameen

      Hell! Was recently thinking of returning to Canada eventually to escape this ******* … no point now….

  • A concerned young AmeriCan Patriot

    In many states there is actually a minimum quota of tickets that must be issued by the police per month. As the end of the month closes, the police pick up giving tickets for ridiculous things (Aunt was pulled over for having her blinker on 150 feet from the intersection, instead of just 100 feet. The fine was $300, and it was the last day of May that the ticket was issued). This is common in many states.

    • Michael

      That is crazy! A $300 ticket for that?


      • A concerned young AmeriCan Patriot

        Yup, there are minimum ticket and fine levels in more and more states.
        It is ridiculous.

    • S. Wiseman

      That’s disgusting! Is there anyone left who recognize and utilize true justice – mercy, forgiveness, and compassion?

      • FWO21

        Now days, you are guilty until proven innocent; not the American Way, AT ALL. Are Americans running this country because it sure doesn’t seem like it to me?

  • Gary2

    Michael–this is getting scary-I am with you 100% on this article also.

    Here in WI, and I kid you not, there is a cop on the freeway every mile at times regularly pulling over folks and writing tickets. I have lived here all my life and I have never seen this many police on the road ways. To me is seems to be a huge waste of resources as the police need to be dealing with murder and other violent crimes. Someone driving too fast is of little concern.

    This is getting to the point that everyone is complaining, liberal and conservative alike.

    • Michael

      Yes, I think that everyone should be able to agree on this.

      In America today being a traffic cop means that your first job is to raise revenue for the government.


    • A concerned young AmeriCan Patriot

      Gary: Everyone is complaining except for those who run the government, who then stuff it in their pockets instead of using it to rebuild bridges, or resurface roads. Instead, those jobs are going to China. If they are going to levy huge costs on tickets, and give tickets for no reason (not that they should even do it); the least they can do is use that money to repair our failing roads and bridges.

    • Sunshine


      I also live in WI, I was recently pulled over TWICE, in two different cities from the police using those auotmated license plate readers. It was ridiculous!! Luckily one of the cops said they just had it installed and gave me a warning for not reigstering my car right away (I was only a week late) but the thought is still scary. And you’re right, it’s terrible in WI. Especially driving to Madison, it doesn’t matter which way you’re coming from :(

  • A concerned young AmeriCan Patriot

    What has happened to the America described in these lyrics?

    O beautiful for spacious skies,
    For amber waves of grain,
    For purple mountain majesties
    Above the fruited plain!
    America! America!
    God shed His grace on thee,
    And crown thy good with brotherhood
    From sea to shining sea!

    O beautiful for pilgrim feet
    Whose stern impassion’d stress
    A thoroughfare for freedom beat
    Across the wilderness
    America! America!
    God mend thine ev’ry flaw,
    Confirm thy soul in self-control,
    Thy liberty in law.

    O beautiful for heroes prov’d
    In liberating strife,
    Who more than self their country lov’d,
    And mercy more than life.
    America! America!
    May God thy gold refine
    Till all success be nobleness,
    And ev’ry gain divine.

    O beautiful for patriot dream
    That sees beyond the years
    Thine alabaster cities gleam
    Undimmed by human tears.
    America! America!
    God shed His grace on thee,
    And crown thy good with brotherhood
    From sea to shining sea.

    • Bill

      Its gone, they urinate on our nations anthem, they despise it, and you have the judges, police and the stupid communist federal, state and local leaders to thank for it. there is a price they will pay for there sedition, read it its in the constitution.

    • mondobeyondo

      I wish I knew what happened, man. I wish I knew.

    • Oh pitiful for smoggy skies
      With amber lanes of waste
      With Dreadful mountain poverty’s
      So many infants slain
      America, America God shed his wrath on thee
      No livelihood, It’s just not good
      From sea to blackened sea
      Time ticks away, but still they play
      With plans of conquering
      The industry, they think they’re free
      Toy soldiers of the damned
      America, America God shed his death on thee
      No livelihood, it’s just not good
      From sea to blackened sea

      • A concerned young AmeriCan Patriot

        Not all hope for America is lost. There s still hope that we will return to our roots but that hope is fading with each passing generation, where more sheeple are praised, and those who see society for what it is are ridiculed. But there is still hope; make a difference and elect someone who is not bought by bigcorp.

    • Brenda

      The inhabitants of this land have been deceived by lawmakers, mobsters, and big corporations who have used the middle class to make them rich. Now that they have achieved that goal they are all about power. They have forgotten God, and lead the people astray.
      But God is Holy and Just and He will not forget the deeds of evil ones.
      But it’s gonna take prayer and turning away from our wicked ways to avert the judgement of God as it’s already begun.

      God will maintain the cause of the poor and the right of the needy and will punish those wicked leaders, and that right early. You can count on it.

  • Alyssa

    If I find something that looks like a tracking device, I will smash it or just stick it on a random vehicle. Let them track a delivery or ice cream truck.

    The guy on you YT is exactly right. Never talk to a cop. It can NEVER help you. Anything you say will be used against you, never for you. Lying to a cop is a crime, but it is perfectly OK for them to lie to you. This has been established in court.

    • Bill

      you are right anytime they question you for something, just tell them you don’t know anything and what there talking about. Piss on there shoes and them.

    • Watchandpray

      Alyssa, my car has Onstar, and it tracks everything, even if I’m not wearing a seat belt I’ve been told.
      I can have the service cancelled and they can still track me, and even listen to my conversations in the car.
      As you say, I would have to destroy the infernal thing.

  • Things will get worse before they get better…because the American people are are asleep and the politic elite are taking advantage of their nap time. When the American people wake up they might find that half the population is in jail or some FEMA camp for running a stop sign somewhere in the middle of the desert.

    • Bill

      Well, we will use the camps they built for us, and they will be put in them. sometimes that’s how things work. they can only achieve this by use of the military, and the military has been told on many occasions if a civil war begins against the American people for any reason, they better stand down and turn in there weapons, if not they will all be tried for treason along with there superiors. the police will be taken care of the same way, stand down or get tried for treason, the time is coming where its really going to get bad, and it will be on there heads. Remember the fight wont be between large contingents of troops, it will be with small well trained teams by the thousands, and each team will be separate not attached to any one large unit, that can be found or ratted out.They will cause much devastation, they won’t stand a chance there to stupid and mind controlled, they will be taken out in there own stations before they knew what ever hit them. One person can hold up an entire contingency unit on a highway for hours and even days without ever knowing what the hell is going on, the same with the rail systems,, most likely there would be derailment of there military hardware going off the tracks which will delay there evil plan for months and even years. they cant win and they know it, but that doesn’t stop evil from trying. Its a sad state of affairs and it will take much to clean it all up. you can read all about these type of engagements on line and how small group teams can win in any type of engagement especially if there well trained. Read on how the resistant movements in France, Italy , Germany put a hurting on them during the war.

  • Kate

    MEGAPHONES! Nobody is mentioning the megaphones I see next to the cameras at most of our down town stop lights. Why the megaphones??

    • matt

      Kate: those are not megaphones they are devices to triangulate a gunshot. they are very accurate, can place location within 15 feet.

  • Mike

    The Arlington, TX PD has taken to doctoring red light camera shots, since the Recession began. In January 2009, I received a ticket stating I’d run a red light & owed the city over $300. They even gave me website where I could see the photo. The photo showed my car, w/ 2 other vehicles, in the middle of the intersection during a red light. It seemed odd to me that all three of us were trying to run a red light at the same time. That’s when I realized that neither me, nor my wife, were anywhere near that side of town on the day the police claimed it occurred. Well, they gotta pay for that crappy new stadium somehow since people could no longer afford the property taxes.

  • RLZ

    Dirty cops will reap what they sow, and their generations also. The WRATH of GOD is upon them all, and they will get what is coming to them.

        One of the reasons walker won was that there are a lot of lazy people on the left who can not be troubled to vote but then have the nerve to complain about how walker sucks so much (which he does)..If you do not vote you can not complain.

        My friends grown son and daughter in law did not vote because they were arguing???WTF??? The poll place was literally just around the corner from their home. How do you fix stupid???

  • Bill

    Yea, and it will turned against them when the time comes. you stupid and uneducated police officers, you better take a course in constitutional awareness because the majority of you all are committing treason and sedition, keep taking bad orders from your superiors and dumbed down judges, keep it up. You all will be held accountable at some point in time, you are on the record as it is now. you can run but you wont be able to hide.

    • Gary2

      Bill I know I am somewhat generalizing here but: In my anecdotal experiences the cops are people who are on a power trip and get off by using that power. Generally also the best and brightest do not become cops. At the rate we are going being a cop will be two steps up from fast food with similar quality people.

  • A concerned young AmeriCan Patriot

    Also Michael, though this is off topic (though not really because it’s D-Day) the disrespect towards our soldiers is astounding. I recently red this article stub


    where the woman denied the soldier an apartment for the sole reason that he served in the military. I guess most people these days don’t care about those that fight for their right to do stuff like this.
    Remember the fallen. Respect those who serve. Semper Fi. Hooah. Aye, Aye. Into the air boys, into the air! OORAH! Support the troops, without their willingness to take the bullets for us, we could be the ones on the front lines. They allow us to live in blissful ignorance of the horrors of war. Thank a vet.

    Soon you won’t be able to drive on the highways without being hassled. Oh yes, I know, there have always been restrictions: Toll booths, state border inspection stations, etc. But now it’s getting outrageous.
    These people are plotting and planning in their high rise glass office buildings, just waiting to come up with new restrictions.

    What’s next? Mandatory “security” at every U.S. shopping mall? If you buy something at Abercrombie and Fitch, you could be a terrorist. It’s possible. Remember, Osama bin Laden bought a turban at Abercrombie and Fitch. Yeah, uh-huh. In other words, there are now millions of teen and tween girls under surveillance for being potential terrorists.

    Gerald Celente has been saying that as the country seeks deeper and deeper into the economic abyss, the fascists will crack down on the little guy more and more. And as usual, Signore Celente’s analysis is spot on. In a fascist/corporatist state like The Banana Republic of America (formerly Gli Stati Uniti), large corporations, mega-banksters and “too-big-to-fails” get away with murder because they operate with impunity. But if you’re the little guy, government will do everything possible to grind you into the stinking ground. Government will stick it to the little guy more and more while The White Shoe Boys get every break imaginable.

        Bludgeoned Enough: The Banana Republic of America is definitely a fascist cesspool police state, no doubt about it. And it’s going to get much worse.

      “Don’t tell me to leave—you leave. If Obama, if Clinton, if Mittens Romney, if Rick Santorum, if Neutered Gingrich, if Herman ‘999 666’ Cain, if Michelle Bachmann, if Sarah Palin, if Harry Reid—if any of these people want to tell me to leave because I don’t believe their BS, come over and we can talk. You want to go man-to-man with me? We could go at it. Don’t send one of your flunkies.”—Gerald Celente

      Our old friend is dying. Should we not cry? Some of us are venting from fear, others from shock, and others from anger, but we all mourn. We’re not so ignorant that we don’t know that the rest of the world is in worse shape. But when America goes down in dust and ashes, the free world is finished.

      friend what is being said here is 100% true as they are real life experiences and not just someones opinion. This is happening all over this country.

    Poor Dear Jeremiah Diehl,

    Ate you really as dim-witted and vacant as your comments would indicate?
    Are you living in a cave or do you really believe what you wrote, or maybe your moronic statement is just a way to get attention?….no friends, huh? If you were serious, then shame on you! You and the naive people like you are the reason this country + 545 political/judicial hacks in DC are killing the USA!
    So, dear, dear Jeremiah, when your feet are being held over that boiling pot of water, and your screaming, “How did this happen??” You will only have yourself to blame! Stop being a crustacean, and get yourself and the not-so-bright folk you pal around with, an education about what’s really happening to this country.

    30 – 40 years ago, we didn’t have cell phones, use computers like we do now, drive long distances, pretty much stayed near our homes, Etc. If you use landlines instead of cell phones, your chances of being monitored are slim to none. The cops have to get a warrant to gain access to the switching stations. Also, there is a signal that lets you know that you are being monitored. Do we really need computers to run the bulk of our lives? We didn’t need them 20 years ago in our homes, they are really a luxury. Learn to write letters by hand again, you and the person you write to will know if your letter has been tampered with. Instead of using your cars, take mass transit or trains for long distances. They won’t know who is on them unless they stop the vehicle and search it, or gain access to the manifests. Pay cash or barter to eliminate paper trails as much as you can. Ride your bicycles near your homes. Become invisible as much as you can.

    Just this evening on the news I learned that Washington DC’s increase in traffic cameras has brought in $50,000 more in fines than all of last year, and we’re not even halfway through 2012. More speed cameras are on the way, too.

  • Martin MacCraigins

    OK guys and ladies, settle down a little.

    The reason cruel masters are coming upon us is very simple – God has been kicked out of our society / nation. When we reject Him, He does what we want – He leaves. Then evil takes His place.

    Want it all to stop?

    Bring God – Christ Jesus back into our nation and STOP the abortion – murder. Hitler murdered 11 million (Jews, civilians, and foreign troops). The US has murdered over 53 MILLION…and counting.

    If you want to know what and why this is happening, read Ezekiel 14 and Deuteronomy 28.

    It is not rocket science.

    When we kicked Christ out, we created hell in America. And, under cruel masters we will go.

    Did you know that only 2% of human history has experienced freedom? That’s because Christ and His Word / Law is thrown by the wayside and left unread and unused. Read it, believe it, and act on it. Don’t believe me? Listen to our founding fathers who insisted that without Christ, we will not remain free. Check it out for yourself.

    • Gay Veteran

      you do understand that many a feudal lord and many dictator2 used religion to control their people

      • OZ FROM OZ

        When Roman emperors saw Christian’s fearlessly facing lions they stole the faith for control of the masses and called it The Holy Roman Church. Ever since then they have used religion, which is their version of Christianity, to control the world.

    • Martin, you are exactly right. The 2 guys who replied to you are lost as a goose.

  • engineer

    I was a highway inspector for 30 years and saw what was coming when Intelligent transportation systems stated to come into being. I warned people 20 year ago and no one wanted to believe me…just as I warned the toll workers that machines would replace them in the form of all electronic tolling…….and just to add to this discusssion, all of you that use EZ Pass or the like, all of your data is being recorded and stored

  • Traveler

    There is one thing that I have wondered about, Just what are these TSA agents going to do if they do manage to stop a real Terrorist. I somehow think that they are going to end up coming out the worst end of the confrontation if at all. In fact they are probably being set up as targets for the suicide vests etc like what is currently happening in places like Baghdad right now.

  • Encyclopediadramatica

    Surveillance cameras are not to prevent organized crime, if they where, they would all be systematically smashed.

    No, they exist to allow crime, they exist to bring about a police state.
    In police states, like the UK for example, if you fight back against criminals, CCTV footages helps the police anmd courts punish you hard, while the criminal just get a slap on the wrist.

    So you don´t want this *******? http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2012/04/494643.html










    • In the USA, home of 300 million firearms, we’d just shoot out the cameras. And the drones, whenever those start popping up. If necessary, we’ll start flying and arming our own drones to kill theirs. Every technology has a countermeasure!

    I’ve noticed center dividers on almost every surface street where they aren’t needed. This allows the police to put up roadblocks and no one can make a u turn to get away from the roadblock. They also make sure the center divider blocks off access to side streets. So they are making sure you can get away. What is also bad these center divider block access to small strip malls or make harder to gain access to the strip malls. Gee they hurts business and cuts into income from sales taxes. Most people don’t see it or care about yet. They will in the future.

  • i noticed the dividers going up here too, they are always in places they are definitely NOT needed. Ive been telling everyone they are for the sole purpose of when they decide to put patriots and christians into concentration camps. They can completely control traffic flow and who passes. if they know someone they want is coming, they can very quickly throw up a road block ahead of where you are to make sure you cannot escape. short of getting out of your vehicle and running on foot. and then they can get you just as easy. its all about control! Im so sick of it, but where could we go, ecuador has a constitution modeled after ours, but the nation is so small, the militia from maine could overthrow it! just to put things into perspective. so WTF we gonna do, its too late anyway, the noose is already around our necks and slowly tightening. UnlesS someone develops a portable EMP device, we are totally screwed, or if Jesus comes back 1st, then ill be ok. but what about the rest of us? start thinking people, we MUST take away their technology advantage BEFORE a revolution were to start, otherwise we will be slaughtered!! SO PUT YOUR THINKING CAPS ON ALL YOU SCIENCE NERDS AND DEVELOP A NON NUCLEAR EMP!!!!!! set things back 100 years, then the sleeping giant that is the american patriots will thrive and be ableto take over this great nation again. otherwise, we gonna die or be locked up in a concentration camp. plain and simple, that is our future!!

    • EMP devices already exist; depending on the size of the unit, the bigger the better. If one is willing to sacrifice a truck, you could make one hell of an EMP device!


    What terrorists? American authorities would have you believe they must chase terrorists on every street. In fact they are chasing anybody who does not knuckle under an oppressive indoctrination. All part of the slow constriction of freedom, supposedly guaranteed by the constitution but hated by the power manipulating control freaks. Security refers to their security – not yours!

    The Banana Republic Pledge of Alliance:

    “I pledge allegiance to the flag
    Of The Banana Republic of America
    And to the corporate criminals for which it stands
    One nation under the iron boot of a despotic oligarchy
    With unrest and instability for all.”

    I write from the Caribbean but I have relatives in the US and it pains me to read the above comments of the people. Here in Barbados, our cost of living is high, there is no doubt about that but the relationship between the citizens and the police is very good. Obviously, I can only speak for the law-abiding because as you well know, the police everywhere tend to hit on the xcons more than ever becuase of their past record. We all look up to America and all I can say to you folks is that I feel your pain and I am hoping that your style of policing don’t come to Barbados any time soon.

  • click my website. THAT’S my comment.

  • The author of the above document/report is incorrect in the assumption
    that the highways of America are being transformed into a high tech prison grid.
    America is already a corporate prison/gulag.
    What Americans are witnessing is an expansion of the Fed Corporate Revenue Collection Service which is confirmed by the following:”Registered vehicle owners who do not pay their Toll/Fine within 80 days or more will be mailed a 40 dollar civil penalty for each unpaid Toll/Fine transaction in addition to a 5 dollar reprocessing fee.” (Civil Law)
    Americans do not OWN motor vehicles, the American government is: The Registered Owner of the motor vehicle you drive.
    You are: The Registered KEEPER of the vehicle you drive and when a traffic cop stops you and asks you: Are you the registered owner of this vehicle, you say NO. You tell the traffic cop that the Government is the registered owner of the vehicle and that you are just the registered KEEPER, and if the traffic cop gives you a ticket you must not sign it because this is contract, simply send the ticket to the appropriate Government department. The picture of the traffic cop taking down details from a motorist who has been stopped illustrates the profound ignorance of Americans who collude in the belief that there is a statutory legal obligation to interact with a: Corporate Policy Enforcement Officer – police officer – there is not. YOU ARE UNDER NO LEGAL OBLIGATION TO DISCLOSE ANY DETAILS ABOUT YOURSELF TO A CORPORATE POLICY ENFORCEMENT OFFICER. IF YOU VOLUNTARILY INTERACT (JOINDER) WITH A CORPORATE POLICY ENFORCEMENT OFFICER IT IS CONTRACT.
    I should point out that the above does not apply to homicide.

  • We told you in the 70’s Big Brother was coming. Nobody listened.

  • With Amerika turning into a total lockdown police state nightmare, are you people ready to join your state’s citizen militia?? If yes, great. If no, what’s your malfunction?? The only reason I can think of that someone would pass on the opportunity to restore liberty is if they’re a flat-out coward. People, if you’re not willing to literally fight to the death to stop this new world order, then you’ll end up getting the prison planet you deserve. You can then lick the jackboots of your masters, and may posterity forget that you were ever our countrymen.

    Come to think of it, your signs do make sense. I just hope we are harbouring the wrong thoughts.

  • Destroy the fascists

    I’m not suprised by this article since i from Australia where our bloody government loves to fine motorists and introduce technology in the name of safety so they can fine motorists for just a few km over the limit. In one australian state the revenue from speed cameras was 315 million dollars a year

    Please, you all be careful what you write. I can assure that the same folks that the author is talking about is also monitoring this website. I not sure if there was ever a Freedom of Speech but I know for a fact it no longer exists. I love the enthusiasm of the commenters but I worry about their well being.
