(NaturalNews) The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), a modern-day Nazi occupying force in America, is on a clear mission to destroy all that remains of the nation's Constitution and Bill of Rights. And it is having a lot of success in the State of Tennessee, where reports indicate that US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officials are teaming up with State Troopers to set up warrantless security checkpoints for Halloween.
Just last week, TSA announced that it would be setting up Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) checkpoints on interstate highways throughout Tennessee, which are to include not only the random search of vehicles, but also the active recruitment of truckers and other motorists to become spies in the DHS "If you see something, say something" campaign (http://www.naturalnews.com/033961_TSA_securi...).
Now, the Volunteer State is planning to set up random checkpoints in other places as well -- and presumably near more highly-populated areas -- in order to allegedly keep kids safe on Halloween. After all, who really needs their Fourth Amendment protections when children's safety is potentially on the line, right?
"State Troopers will be conducting safety checkpoints, sobriety roadblocks, saturation patrols and other enforcement techniques to look for aggressive or impaired drivers," said DHS Commissioner Bill Gibbons who is actively involved in the agency's "terrorism prevention" program. And the reason for all this is to "keep roadways safe for trick-or-treaters," they say.
So Tennesseans that decide to drive anywhere within their home state this Halloween could face an unwarranted vehicle search and potentially even a full-body pat down just for traveling. The mere act of traveling, after all, automatically makes you a suspect of terrorism in the new American police state.
Commenting on this new "Show me your papers!" attitude of government officials towards US Citizens, former presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin recently wrote a column explaining how the USA Patriot Act is responsible for enabling this tyranny. The Act essentially gutted the Fourth and Fifth Amendments to the US Constitution, as well as the Posse Comitatus Act, which prohibit the type of Soviet-style checkpoints that TSA is now implementing (http://chuckbaldwinlive.com/home/?p=4086).
"Back in the days of Free America, checkpoints were synonymous with Red Russia and Red China," writes Baldwin. "We could never have imaged -- or tolerated -- those kinds of practices going on in these United States. Now, they are part of everyday life in Occupied America, and standard operating procedure in the State of Tennessee and elsewhere."
