Land of the “Free”: More US-Born Americans Detained at Border, Asked for “Papers Please” as “Liberty Lovers” Call for an Even Bigger Police State

The most confounding development since Donald Trump took office is the mounting number of people basically begging for a bigger police state than we already have here in America… but more on that in a moment.

Stories are coming out of all corners of the U.S. with much more frequency in recent months about people being “stopped and frisked” without any probable cause whatsoever, American-born citizens being detained for hours at the border for seemingly no reason at all (unless profiling based on nothing more than a foreign-sounding name is now legal “probable cause”), and ICE has increased random “stings” in cities nationwide where people are just rounded up and detained in large groups to check everyone’s papers… please (except for the “please” part).

Cases in point include an American female Olympian who happens to be Muslim with a Muslim name who was detained for two hours at the border without any reason given. Fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad won a bronze medal during the 2016 Olympics. She also “won” the honor of being detained for an extreme vetting session based on…?

Come on. We all know what it was based on.

For those wondering, despite mainstream media reports, this woman was actually detained right at the end of Obama’s final term before Trump was sworn in.

Another recent case involved a US-born NASA scientist who went to South America for a couple of weeks to race solar-powered cars. He left while Obama was still president and returned under Trump’s America. The man was detained and forced to unlock his smart phone for border patrol agents before they would let him back into the country… again, seemingly based on nothing other than his last name, as the agents did not even bother to look Sidd Bikkannavar up in the system to find out he was born here and has worked at the Jet Propulsion Lab for a decade.

Meanwhile on the streets, a naturalized US citizen from India named Aravinda Pillalamarri who has lived here for 30 years now was simply out for a walk in late January steps from her home in her town of Bel Air, Maryland (which is, just by the way, 90% Caucasian) when she was stopped by police who demanded an ID because of a “suspicious person” call. Not legally defined probable cause, mind you, and there is no law requiring anyone to show ID to police while out walking when they are not suspected of an actual crime.

The comments on these kinds of stories on The Free Thought Project website are horrifying in my opinion.

It’s everything from things like this:


To this:


Idiotic blind obedience to authority aside, were you aware we live in a country where a person cannot even go for a walk without being detained and forced to show “papers please”? Well it’s happening with increasingly frequency in recent months to the point that we might as well not even have a Fourth Amendment anymore.

While the Olympic medalist believes she was detained for no other reason than having a Muslim name, I know I’ve personally been detained at the border and grilled and had every personal item in my car right down to my dirty under (it was a road trip) riffled through by a border agent with an obvious attitude problem who apparently just wanted to make our day hell because he had no reason to suspect us or any probable cause whatsoever and he treated us like total criminals anyway just for trying to come back into our own country after spending three days in Canada.

I’ve since been told we were probably flagged in the system because we’re activists with the alternative media, but somehow I bet he just treats the majority of people that way because that is the level of tyrannical police state we are at in this country.

Here’s what is making it worse to the point of intolerable, though.

As Brandon Smith of Alt Market recently pointed out, comments begging for MORE tyrannical police state are becoming all too common these days, and in a scary twist, becoming that much more common in supposed “liberty movement” circles:

As an alternative analyst I am privy to trends in the liberty movement and in conservative circles that might not be immediately obvious to casual readers. Already, I am witnessing calls among conservatives to abuse government power to defeat the Left. I have seen comments such as:

“Trump should use the NDAA to imprison these leftists indefinitely…”

“The only solution is to throw the leftists into FEMA camps…”

“Trump needs to shut down the leftist media…”

“Sometimes it is okay to bend the rules of the constitution if you have the right president…”

And comments like this are popping up everywhere in liberty media boards. Now, I recognize that some of this talk is being posted by paid disinformation agents and provocateurs, but, I have heard regular conservatives and patriots, people who are long time proponents of the Constitution, echo similar sentiments.

When did we get to a point where so called “patriotic liberty lovers” are the ones begging the hardest for tyranny? Begging state agents to basically light the Constitution on fire? Begging to have their rights stolen along with everyone else’s?

That’s perhaps the most frustrating, disturbing development of all.

Guess they’ll be the ones now arguing that if we aren’t doing anything wrong, we have nothing to worry about, right?

Yeah, good luck with that.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    This story illustrates why it is important to know your rights as per the constitution!
    ‘Just say NO’ to unconstitutional bullshit perpetrated by our communist government!
    ‘F’ em!

    • Bruce Regael

      That doesn’t work when your government has stopped paying attention to the Constitution when it’s inconvenient. It doesn’t even go back to the post-WW2 NWO types, or even the Federal Reserve. Abe Lincoln was the first to walk all over it and there’s evidence it was happening even earlier.

      This country has been in turmoil almost since the very beginning having two completely opposite beliefs in how the government should be run duking it out. The Constitution was an effort to limit both sides from getting out of hand by giving the people the power to legally shake them off. It’s too late to return to the Constitution to unscrew where this country is now and the neo-liberal fanatics aren’t going to give a single damn about it.

      I’m curious how people think they’re going to deal with an opponent hell bent on destroying you and the constitution (only using it when the argument is useful) by adhering to the constitution?

      • g.johnon

        the constitution is the litmus test by we the people can detect corruption with the fedguv. the gummint’s cavalier attitude about it tells us lots. as does the gummints cavalier attitude toward humanity in general.
        the rights enumerated are natural rights, of which the constitution constantly reminds us. no government gave them to us, we were born with them.
        a reading of the preamble tells us that it is we the people who hold the hammer and who’s duty it is to hold vigilance over the fedguv. it is a manual for how to keep a government under control. it takes work and it takes vigilance. by not adhering to it, we lose everything. and will be our only touchstone for a valid and rightful revolution.
        your historical view is interesting. abe lincoln was in a mortal battle with the centrist that would come to be the owners of the federal reserve. as was jackson, kennedy and many others. this struggle does indeed go all the way back to the colonies and alexander hamilton was the centrist representative in the continental congress.
        so yeah, it does work. it is the litmus test by which we point out to the world how corrupt (and international) is the united states government, inc.. and it is the bound and sealed right by which we can render this treason null.
        you kinda get it, but not really.

    • g.johnon

      saying no to a cop is now called resisting. you can get shot in the face for saying that and the cop will get a paid vacation for shooting you.

      • I thought it was now called ‘suicide’.

        • g.johnon

          i thought i just said that.

  • Smarty

    Thank you Melissa. I’ve been saying the same thing for quite some time. It seems Trump was sent in to pacify the restless natives, and now he’s become their plastic Jesus. They need to stay the course and be who they were BEFORE the “selection” took place….

  • Gil G

    Do you want a wall or don’t you? If they’re real U.S. citizens and have their papers then they should have nothing to fear.

    • BW83

      I’m guessing this is tongue-in-cheek sarcasm, and if so lol.

      I think it’s funny a bunch of freedom loving and government distrusting people like the ones who frequent this site (or claim to be) can actually justify a wall.

      Just confirms my suspicions that most people don’t actually want the freedom they claim to

      • g.johnon

        no that’s gil the shill. always trying to insert the snowflake narrative where it truly will not play.

    • jimmy joe

      Your talking about EVERYONE, partner, everyone!!

    • g.johnon

      wow gil, the cia is still paying you to shill in here; eh? guess they haven’t come to the point of understanding what a lame and easy to spot troll you actually are. and lookie there, a little snowflake has upbumped you…..awwww.

  • PoshZolA

    This “vetting” should have been done from the beginning. It’s too late now the rot has already set. Obama didn’t take care of the country and let the children run wild. Now Trump has to be the disciplinarian. Good luck with that.

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA That is fucking funny” disciplinarian”!!!! HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA

  • Ratcraft

    I’m sorry. I have crossed the US Canadian border well over 100 times since 2001. It’s a serious pain in the ass sometimes. I’m white, going there for work related things. I’ve had vehicles searched, held up as much as 6 hours with no reason other than they wanted to be dicks I guess. Like I said, I’m sorry, this is nothing new and not just at the southern border or against non whites.

    • g.johnon

      I went to high school in Bellingham Washington way back in medieval times. used to drive up to Vancouver bc all the time to ride the roller coaster at the pne. got to where we knew a lot border guys on both sides on a first name basis. “anything to declare?” “nope” “see ya next time.”
      now that a passport is required to go to Canada, I no long go there. just not worth it and it would be too much like supporting horseshit control freakiness.

      • Ratcraft

        I work north of Seattle, used to travel to Canada a few times a month, some times every week for a quick job. I had a work permit, everything was legal. I could write a book of all the BS I’ve gone through up there.

        • g.johnon

          yer talking after they buttoned down the border?

          • Ratcraft

            After 9-11 everything changed for me. Getting across was easier than getting home. I had to register every single tool. Every drill bit. I had a list sometimes 20 pages long, all with serial numbers we engraved on them. Then we had to pay $5 to bring back home….. yes $5. But not always. Sometimes they wouldn’t ask for the money. I always figured it was a guy who had no lunch and was just shaking us down for 5 bucks. Sometimes they wouldn’t stamp off our tools (they had like a notary stamp on the list), and just tell us to forget about it. Then on the return home we’d get reamed for not registering them before we crossed. It was a joke. We started taking down the names so when they hollered at us we would say, call up so and so and ask him, he said don’t worry about it. One time I got hollered at for saying that. I then said, so what are you saying I should tell them how to do their job?

          • g.johnon

            little power trippin weasels love to yell don’t they?
            canada is dead to me now. fuck you bush clinton bush obama and soon, i fear, trump. i got married in toronto by , the way. whole nuther story, but i’m better now.

          • Ratcraft

            I went up to Vancouver then thru Abbotsford 2 years ago with my sons. Just because they had never been. I really have no desire to go back. I’ll hit the Calgary stampede one day. But other than that, why bother.

  • frankw

    Remember that the worst despots (Mao, Stalin, Hitler and more) all had numerous followers who applauded their oppression of unpopular opponents. It seems to be a human instinct for playing follow the leader.

  • Ernie Engle

    This article is pure bull shit. Drain the swamp, build the wall, kick out the terrorists. You can not have it both ways, support Trump!!

    • Dr Truth

      I think it’s a great article. Fuck the police state!!!

      • Ernie Engle

        You need to go back to reading comic books, this article is at the same level. Go Trump, he’s doing what he promised.

  • silk

    I’d rather have a police state than live in a constant state of chaos instigated by illegal aliens and terrorists! MAGA!!!!

  • Well said Melissa – it is more and more evident that the programming goes so deep that the slaves love their slavery and beg for more.
    I wrote and article about this sort of thing in 2011, enjoy –
