Police State America

When the so-called "enhanced pat downs" started in airports many people stated that they were ok with that, because after all, planes were used as weapons on 9/11 and without these pat downs people wouldn't be safe on planes.

At that time there was a large group of concerned citizens who felt that this process would become more and more widespread to the point of using such methods at shopping malls, check-points on roads and highways in addition to a number of other public entrances. Those people were accused of hyperbole and inappropriate paranoia.

Well, it is here and it seems very reminiscent of Nazi Germany and it is certainly one more step in the direction of the form of government rule that will be implemented during the Tribulation. This is part of the conditioning process.

Enhanced Pat-Downs At NFL Games? America Is Rapidly Turning Into A High-Security Prison

The NFL has announced that it will be implementing "enhanced" pat-downs at all 32 NFL stadiums.

Once this is fully implemented, the 16 million fans that attend games each season will be frisked from the ankles to the knees and from the waist up.

America is rapidly turning into a high-security prison. When naked body scanners and "enhanced pat-downs" went into U.S. airports, those that warned that we would soon see these types of "Big Brother" security measures pop up at train stations, bus stations, shopping malls and sporting events were dismissed as "conspiracy theorists".

And below we see questions that we all should be asking:

But it turns out that the "conspiracy theorists" did not even fully understand how quickly all of this nonsense was going to spread. How much "security" is going to be enough? Where in the world is the line going to be drawn?

If groping all fans is "necessary" for security at all NFL games, how long will it be before it is implemented at all other sporting events across the United States?

And this:

The truth is that no matter how hard they try, those in charge of our "security" cannot keep us perfectly safe. Life is dangerous and bad things are going to happen no matter how much "security" you throw around.

We have a choice. We can live as free men without fear, or we can cower in terror and call for increasingly repressive layers of "security". If we continue on the path that we are on, this nation is going to become a totalitarian "Big Brother" police state so repressive that it will make our founding fathers roll over in their graves.

Amen on that. And don't think for a second that this isn't part of an overall conditioning process.

Where will this end?

If we keep going to the games and act as if nothing has changed, then they are going to see that as a sign that they can tighten our shackles even more.

It started in our airports, but now futuristic "Big Brother" police state security measures are being implemented at subway stops, bus stations, ports, shopping malls, highway rest stops and sporting events.

Did you know that TSA "VIPR teams" now conduct approximately 8,000 "unannounced security screenings" every year at subway stations, bus terminals, seaports and highway rest stops?

It actually gets worse...Take a look at this aspect:

Are you ready to be monitored for "pre-crime"?

Yes, new technology will soon be watching you at public events that will determine whether or not you have the "intent" to commit a crime.

If you fail any of the "psysiological" or "behavioral" tests, you will be flagged for "suspicious activity" and security goons will pull you off the street.

Homeland Security is also developing technology to be used at “security events” which purports to monitor “malintent” on behalf of an individual who passes through a checkpoint. The promotional video for the program explains how “Future Attribute Screening Technology” (FAST) checkpoints will conduct “physiological” and “behavioral” tests in order to weed out suspected terrorists and criminals.

And worse:

In America today, watching for "suspicious activity" has become a very high priority. As I wrote about recently, an FBI document that is being distributed to stores and hotels says that "suspicious activity" now includes....

-paying with cash

-missing a hand or fingers

-"strange odors"

-making "extreme religious statements"

-"radical theology"

-purchasing weatherproofed ammunition or match containers

-purchasing meals ready to eat

-purchasing night vision devices, night flashlights or gas masks

And if the above isn't bad enough, consider and contemplate the measures that are now being taken in America which are very familiar to communist regimes - which is the aspect of government encouraging "snitches" to covertly turn people in for the purpose of government "watching" or worse, interrogation - right out of the pages of Nazi Germany or communist USSR:

"If You See Something, Say Something"

And now, we see this as well:

Attack Watch

We are being encouraged to "turn in" people who are making any "unfounded" verbal or written attack on our president under the premise of "mis-information". Please.

This is a chilling development. Remember when we used to have this thing in America called "freedom of speech"?

No longer - certainly not if it involves any criticism of the president.

Open Thread: Obama's Widely-mocked Attack Watch

How long before Obama's campaign flushes Attack Watch down the toilet?

At least someone is able to find some humor in this:

Attack Watch: The Commercial

Our founding fathers must be turning in their graves. Think of how many times America fought to protect freedoms - which are now being abolished at a dizzying rate.

And this entire process is just that: a process - which shows no signs of abating. Every day it seems that we see yet another loss in freedom under the premise of "safety and security".

Yet this must be as we approach the Tribulation. The world is being conditioned to accept the "leader" who will come and these kinds of "activities" will become much much worse.

Just consider the fact that during the Tribulation, people will accept a mandatory "mark" which will "allow" them to buy or sell and maintain employment (obviously).

That cannot happen overnight, especially in America. It would necessarily follow a long period of progressive losses in freedom, so that taking the "mark" would represent just one more step in this process. We're getting closer and closer to that final step.

It is coming - we know that from our prophetic scriptures.

The closer we get to the Tribulation, as more and more of these revelations are revealed - revelations of just how severe and draconian human government will be during that period - it should serve to make us even more grateful of the promises that Jesus revealed to His Bride.

Once the "restrainer" is removed from planet earth, things will immediately become worse - much worse - and based on where we are today, that is hard to imagine.

One has to wonder just how effective searching from ankle to knee and waist up will be at finding dangerous contraband, since it leaves knee to waist available for concealing weapons. Which makes me think it's not REALLY about identifying would be terrorists but rather about makiing Americans more accepting of privacy intrusion. To what end???

Exactly, Robin. To what end indeed.

I keep hearing "Taps" in my head! But joy in my heart for the return of Jesus!

First of all you forgot to mention our public (and possibly private) schools as places for pat downs. i hear this may happen real soon in some schools. also, the mark doesn't happen til 3.5yrs into the tribulations, rapture or no rapture at the current rate it won't take that long for the technology or conditioning to already be in place as it is.
