Pro-wrestling match script writers can't a hold a candle to the prolific work of CFR propagandists in creating false dichotomies and engaging in pure fantasy. While U.S. interventionism in the geographic area known as "Mexico" and the shared policy of Prohibition have demonstrated to be epic failures (i.e. unless of course the actual aim is to pile up tens of thousands of corpses, terrorize populations, and put innocent people in cages for possessing plant matter), the prescription of our present Drug War apologist is increased meddling in partnership with the gangsters calling themselves "the United Mexican States" to perpetuate the incoherent and deadly War on (some) Drugs. Somehow, under these auspices, exporting U.S. dollars for supposed do-gooding in the geographic area known as "Mexico" and engaging in what amounts to 'homeland' security theatre Keynesianism at the border-zones of the modern gangster-states mentioned is the solution to the problems inherent to the policies of Prohibition and immigration socialism.

Amtrak Cops Threaten to Arrest Reporter Despite Policy Allowing Photography
By Carlos Miller -...
Oblivious to its own photo policy, Amtrak police threatened to arrest a reporter for having recorded a video of a TSA checkpoint at Chicagoâs Union Station.
Julio Rausseo of We Are Change had video recorded Transportation Security Administration screeners setting up a checkpoint at the train station on July 5.
He uploaded the video, then returned to the station a week later where he sat in a restaurant video recording TSA screeners ordering their food.
That was when he was approached by an Amtrak police officer who recognized him from the previous encounter as you can see in the above video. Unfortunately, Rausseo never dared record the faces of the two cops who ended up harassing him.
The cop first said he was not allowed to record the checkpoint, which does not comply with Amtrakâs photo policy, which is posted not only on Amtrak's website but on the Amtrak police Wikipedia page.
The cop then accused him of having trespassed in a restricted area when the original video clearly shows he was not.
And then the cop suggested that his video could have been used for âoeterrorist activity.â
When Rausseo asked him to elaborate, the cop explained that âoepeople know the time, the date, you gave an explanation about TSA.â Never mind the fact that thousands of people must have seen the TSA screeners setting up the checkpoint that day as you can see in the video below.
The cop then demanded to see his identification. When Rausseo protested, a second cop showed up, explaining that they were conducting a Terry stop.
By law, a Terry stop requires the officers to have a reasonable suspicion or âoespecific and articulable factsâ that a crime has just been committed or about to be committed.
In this case, the only âoecrimeâ that was committed was Rausseo having video recorded a security checkpoint and uploading the video to Youtube, which are not crimes, especially considering he made no indication in the video that he had committed a crime or was planning to commit a crime.
The second cop pointed out that Union Station is a privately owned building, which he said meant that Rausseo was required to get a permit before he was allowed to utilize his First Amendment rights to record.
âoeYou're obviously a rookie journalist 'cause any seasoned journalist would know that you follow policy and procedure,â the cop told him.
âoeA normal journalist and a professional journalist would know to go to management office, get a permit, who you are, what you're doing and why you're doing it. Then they escort you, and you are able to execute your First Amendment rights."
Of course, a seasoned cop would also know that there is no requirement for reporters to get a permit.
And while itâs true that Union Station is owned by Amtrak, it is also true that Amtrak is a government-owned corporation, meaning it is funded by taxpayers.
Amtrak also has very clear photo policy listed on its website, thanks to its embarrassing flap in 2008 involving PINAC reader Duane Kerzic, who was arrested by Amtrak police for taking photos he planned to use in an Amtrak photo contest.
Kerzic, whose story went viral on PINAC, ended up being featured on The Colbert Show before winning a hefty settlement.
As a result of Kerzicâs arrest, Amtrak revised its photo policy in March 2009.
The policy, which Iâve posted below in its entirety, is no different than what you encounter at other transportation hubs, including the New York subway or the Miami-Dade Metrorail, in that allows photography and videography within public accessible areas, but not within restricted areas, which are not open to the public anyway.
It limits photography to hand-held cameras because tripods and lights would impede traffic. And while it recommends that reporters go through a formalized administrative procedure before conducting their work, it does not require them to do so.
It also requires commercial photographers, meaning photographers shooting ads or commercials, to get special permission.
The policy does give Amtrak policy some leeway in harassing photographers if their âoeactivity is suspicious in nature or inconsistent with this policy,â but the fact that Amtrak police had already viewed Rausseoâs video should have been an indicator that he was acting as a journalist, merely reporting his observations and his opinions.
The policy is pretty standard and not a very difficult to understand, but apparently the cops are having trouble with it.
âoeYou canât argue law with me, ok, because Iâm competent and I know the law,â the second cop told Rausseo. âoeIâve studied this ok and I know the way it works.â
Hereâs giving that cop a second chance to study it becau
