The Morongo office of the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in conjunction with the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department and the USMC military police will conduct a joint sobriety/driver license checkpoint on Friday, December 12, 2008, somewhere in the unincorporated/incorporated area of San Bernardino County.

More on this subject here. I’ve never thought “checkpoints” were ethical or legal, but this takes the cake. There can be absolute NO REASON WHATSOEVER for military personnel to be manning roadblocks in America unless this nation is under martial law.
The point and purpose of these ‘exercises’ is to condition the sheep to accept these and other military exercises with the civilian population as ‘normal’ (this INCLUDES the troops involved, who do not know that they are breaking the law under orders from their commanders).
Infowars has long published these kind of events, including the ‘joint military exercises’ on urban centers complete with shock troops, assault weapons and staged tactical response for civil disturbances.
Here’s what I think — besides conditioning, factions within the US Government are well aware of the coming collapse and the shock to the American Sheeple. Checkpoints will be COMMON as nationalization of critical assets and control of the nations essential infrastructure and roadways takes place.
Frankly, my personal position on this is that it is illegal, immoral, injust and totally uncalled for. Morever, it is a personal assault upon my freedom, liberty and rights to travel. Any serious research will demonstrate that a “license” to drive (permission slips) are also unconstitutional.
Title 18 USC 31:
“Motor vehicle” means every description or other contrivance propelled or drawn by mechanical power and used for commercial purposes on the highways in the transportation of passengers, or passengers and property.”Used for commercial purposes” means the carriage of persons or property for any fare, fee, rate, charge or other considerations, or directly or indirectly in connection with any business, or other undertaking intended for profit.
This definition of “motor vehicle” does not include “private motor Vehicles” as distinguished from the 18 USC 31 “motor vehicle” definition and as was clearly distinguished in Bowman vs City of Kansas City. As a consequence to this fact, this court has not addressed the issue we promote on property rights. Drivers License Is A Contract
For years professionals within the criminal justice system have acted on the belief that traveling by motor vehicle was a privilege that was given to a citizen only after approval by their state government in the form of a permit or license to drive. In other words, the individual must be granted the privilege before his use of the state highways was considered legal. Legislators, police officers, and court officials are becoming aware that there are court decisions that disprove the belief that driving is a privilege and therefore requires government approval in the form of a license. Presented here are some of these cases:
CASE #1: “The use of the highway for the purpose of travel and transportation is not a mere privilege, but a common fundamental right of which the public and individuals cannot rightfully be deprived.” Chicago Motor Coach v. Chicago, 169 NE 221.
CASE #2: “The right of the citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, either by carriage or by automobile, is not a mere privilege which a city may prohibit or permit at will, but a common law right which he has under the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Thompson v. Smith, 154 SE 579.
It could not be stated more directly or conclusively that citizens of the states have a common law right to travel, without approval or restriction (license), and that this right is protected under the U.S Constitution.
CASE #3: “The right to travel is a part of the liberty of which the citizen cannot be deprived without due process of law under the Fifth Amendment.” Kent v. Dulles, 357 US 116, 125.
CASE #4: “The right to travel is a well-established common right that does not owe its existence to the federal government. It is recognized by the courts as a natural right.” Schactman v. Dulles 96 App DC 287, 225 F2d 938, at 941.
As hard as it is for those of us in law enforcement to believe, able right to use the roadways unrestricted in any manner as long as they are not damaging there is no room for speculation in these court decisions. American citizens do indeed have the inalien or violating property or rights of others. Government — in requiring the people to obtain drivers licenses, and accepting vehicle inspections and DUI/DWI roadblocks without question — is restricting, and therefore violating, the people’s common law right to travel. Right To Travel
I am keenly aware of how constitutional law and the judgment of today’s corrupt court system is a chasm apart. It does no good at all to bitch, moan and complain about “rights” and “law” and “legal” and roadblocks and military troops attacking our cities at all.
If and when (EXTREMELY DOUBTFUL) Americants finally grow a set of GONADS and realize that this country is already a fascist police state, reporting these crimes of the State is a complete waste of my time — and yours. You should make yourself aware of these events and facts however, so that you can at least tell your kids that we ALL sat on our asses while our country was taken over by THUGS.
