Another day at the office

My husband was working in Southern California earlier this week. On his way there, within a short amount of  time, he was stopped at three random, internal checkpoints along I-8, which is an East-West highway that NEVER intersects the international border. As usual,  he refused to answer any questions, which he legally has the right to do (although it really ticks these little Hitlers off).

His video of two of the three encounters has since gone viral, so I thought I'd share it below for the enjoyment of all.




Stuff like this happens to him often, though he does not always videotape, nor publish it. The local news ran a story on it last night, and I think he is also going to be on the Alex Jones show

For law enforcement's finest, you may also wish to see:





And for all those brain-dead Christians who think we should roll over and allow our rights to be trampled, so as to not "turn people off" the gospel - turns out they don't want to hear it...

  1. The land of the free, right? "The rise of the police state", but I bet my finest dress that you have already seen it. Just like "Freedom to fascism".
    I'm sorry about what's going on in the United States. The entire world is turning into a one world police state.

  2. Is there a reason you always refer to his as your husband and never by name?

  4. I found your blot via Alex Jones a while ago. (IIRC he mentioned your husband and I was curious what a 'right wing pastor' was so I googled him and I think his or FWBC website linked to here.)

  5. He needs to turn his camera on every time he is stopped. Just to be safe. You never know when one of those guys takes this to the next level.

    Happy and safe birth for number seven.

  6. People who scoff at his videos and try to say that these people are just doing their jobs and protecting our borders. These checkpoints are NOT at ports of entry. They are many miles from our border so what are these people protecting? What are they guarding?

  7. Do what you have to do Pastor Anderson! Thank you for sharing the videos ZsuZsana.

    Keep cool out there!

  8. I don't get the need for check points so far from the border. I would not want my Colombian sons visiting California. That said, if I were stopped I'd just answer the questions because I don't like confrontation.

    I agree that your husband should always video tape any encounters.

  9. Anon 2,
    Ad 1, refer to "him", not his. I'm the furthest thing from being the English Police on constant patrol, but this was kind of painful to look at.
    Ad 2, when I talk about my husband, I refer to him as "my husband" since he is my husband, I don't say to a crowd of people "oh you know, William and I" because half of them would not know who William is. Do you have a husband? When you talk about him, you say Mr. Anon2, or Leslie or something? If you have a husband and you love him you will mention him as your spouse. Funny how people can split hairs over everything. See, I did the same thing to you, I hope you liked it. I don't favor stupid and argumentative comments and I am not as humble as Zsuzsanna. William is Prince William or Willam Shakespeare. My husband is my husband. If you are lucky, one day you'll know this feeling. Good luck.

  10. Anon~ I always refer to my husband as "my husband" even when talking with family members, his and mine, its just habit.

  11. Anon regarding calling my husband, "my husband":

    Your question is valid, and you are not the first to ask. There are several reasons:

    - Not everyone might automatically know who I am talking about when I refer to "Steve". Unless they have all of our kids' names memorized, they might think I am talking about a son rather than a spouse.

    - My husband is a pastor, and to those in our church he goes by "Pastor Anderson". Consequently, just as I don't call him "Steve" when talking to the kids and referring to him (but rather, "Dad"), I also don't use his first name when talking about him to church members. I refer to him as Pastor, Pastor Anderson, or "my husband".

    - Since this blog is mainly about our personal family, not our church, calling him "Pastor Anderson" on here would seem a bit stilted - not like he is a pastor to all my readers!

    Which leaves "my husband" as the slightly odd, but best choice.

  12. I don't know why I wrote I didn't want my Colombian sons visiting California! Duh, I meant Arizona.

  13. Total Curiosity here..
    Why the need to not answer? What happens if he says yes, I am an American? Does he just get waived on or do they ask for ID? Do they ask more questions? I understand that it feels like a violation of ones rights. How often do these checkpoints get set up or are they a non stop thing now? ( I am in Ohio.. I have never even been pulled over in a sobriety checkpoint so I am a little clueless).

    1. The reason that no one should answer this is because in America, you are not supposed to be randomly stopped on the highway to prove you are an American. They used to do that in Germany back in the 40's, you may have heard of it in social studies. It is generally frowned upon.

  14. Hello. I just posted a message regarding Pastor Anderson exercising his human rights. Then I saw other videos of him saying that he hates people- homosexuals and the President? I'm sorry but I do not want you to post my last comment on the Zeitgeist movies. If I knew that he hated people I would have never come to this website. I do not hate anyone. Jesus never hated anyone. "Hate the sin but love the sinner." -unknown Bible verse. I'm sorry but I have lost respect for Pastor Anderson. There is too much hate in the world already. Please do not post my comment. I do not support him or his cause in any way. I regret finding his videos now. "We wrestle not against flesh and blood...." - unknown scripture

    Go in Peace and Serve the Lord,
    Mike

    1. This is a late reply, but "Hate the sin but love the sinner" is no where to be found in the unknown Bible you quoted. It is commonly attributed to Ghandi who practiced Buddhism (a gateway to shamanism ultimately satanism).

      Religious people and emergent church "christians" love to quote that like it is scripture to justify their love and acceptance for perversion.

      To finish your other 'unknown scripture', it is from Ephesians

      ".... , but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

      It sounds like Pastor Anderson is doing exactly that - revealing the truth about the police state, the sodomite perversion, and reprobate "emergent church" Christians.

      I'd implore you study the Bible and find out who Jesus is. You know of Him, but it doesn't sound like you know Him.

  15. I wonder if the police stop people because they are afraid of being sued for racial profiling?

    I know in some police districts (Ontario Provincial Police) have safety blitzes to check for drunk drivers, dangerous drivers and unsafe cars.

  16. Deas Zsuzsanna,

    when I read what you wrote about your husband going by "Pastor Anderson" for the church members, I was reminded of a question I wanted to ask for quite a while. Since I'm not from the US, not even an English speaking country, I'm pretty confused about the formalities. When I once visited the US, pretty much everyone I met was simply using their first name when they introduced themselves. I never even learned the last name of some people. Also among each other, they called each other by their first name, even if there was an age gap, or the people didn't know each other well. So how does that work? I also wasn't sure how to address you, but since everyone else seems to call you by your first name, I do that too, I hope that's ok.

    Kind regards,

    Marie

  17. I too refer to my husband as my husband when talking about him in general and don't understand why the anon above finds this so odd or offensive. If I were to blog I would refer to my husband as "my husband" and not by his name. He is her husband. @Mike There is no verse in the bible that says to love the sinner and hate the sin and the other verse you are referring to is
    Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. That is referring to spiritual warfare, not sure where you were going with that one. :-)

  18. It's entirely possible the checkpoints were set up to search for a fugitive, or they had a tip re:illegal activities, etc. All he had to do was be polite and move on, like everybody else was doing.

    I've seen several of your husband's videos--and I always wonder why he feels the need to fight authority when clearly they weren't after him to begin with. I have seen the one where he was attacked at that one checkpoint, and it was brutal, horrible, and uncalled for. I don't know what came out of all that but I hope someone was punished for injuring him.

    That having been said, behaving belligerently and defensively often draws unwanted attention from the police that could've otherwise been avoided completely.

  19. While on one hand I agree that there is no reason to have immigration check points, and support his decision not to answer, I'm a little startled by his tone. Isn't the saying "you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar" or something to that effect? Those officers were just doing their jobs, after all.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Those are permanent checkpoints for "border security" not to catch a fugitive. They are not at ports of entry but are several miles from our borders. They are not put there for our safety but to get us used to being violated just like the perverted TSA's at the airport. The mother with Columbian sons would have great cause to be concerned for them in this state.

  21. We all need to realize that when someone goes against the overreaching of authorities that they WILL be portrayed in the mainstream media as "extreme" or "insane" and either the media or commenters they pay will attack that person with LIES.

    I hope that Mike sees this and realizes that any time someone is involved in standing up for our rights attempts will be made to discredit them - and claiming they hate people or have made threats against someone is a common tactic.

    NEVER assume these things really happened. LOOK for evidence of that person actually SAYING what they are being accused of saying IN CONTEXT.

    What Steve is doing is dangerous work. Attorneys will tell you that you should ALWAYS refuse to allow your person or vehicle to be searched - SAY THAT in a loud, firm, clear voice. That will NOT necessarily prevent the search, but it does give you grounds to get it dismissed.

    Even if you are positive that no one could possibly have EVER dropped ANYTHING in your vehicle - not your kids or their friends or a co-worker or ANYONE there is still the very real possibility that something will be planted in your vehicle so that it can be seized under asset forfeiture laws.

    Abuse of these laws is rampant and growing because it is a fast, easy way to fund even more law enforcement. In Texas, they can use seized assets to pay salaries so there is a huge incentive to take your cash, vehicles and property.

    The problem is even worse in other states like Tennessee. See my GrowMap YouTube channel for videos of interviews with victims and the agencies that took their property without ever charging them with anything.

    If Steve is called by God to challenge these laws, whatever happens will be for God's purpose. May he be safe and nothing worse happen to him. We are indeed living in End Times and must walk daily with our Creator God to know what we must do.

  22. Well done. Thanks for sharing. You are doing a lot to educate people on issues of liberty.

  23. Good day and God bless you! I have spent several hours today reviewing numerous you tube videos and followed the trial of Pastor Anderson for the April 14, 2009 border patrol incident. It is great that you stand up for your rights and the constitution. We all should be doing so! I could not find your email address to email you with questions I have. What happened to the civil lawsuit against the border patrol from the incidents in April, 2009. I cannot locate anything on that. Please let me know how I can email you. Thank you!

    Well that about sums it up. "Unknown bible verse".
    Maybe that should have been a clue that the verse DOES NOT EXIST!

    And maybe, just maybe, these pussyfooted "Christians" should open the KJV search tool and look up "Hate" and realize that God DOES hate and so do some of his most righteous people such as King David. And don't forget that Jesus IS God manifested in the flesh.

    Just like anger, hate is fine when it is righteous hatred. (Psalm 139 KJV)

    i.e. I HATE Abortion. And I HATE Abortion Doctors. They are "Workers of iniquity" and clearly reprobate to be without natural affection. Just as are the sick disgusting homosexuals.

  25. Why does every single bit of information regarding this checkpoint crime and subsequent lawsuit end in 2012? What happened with Mr. Anderson's lawsuit? Anyone?

  26. I too am intrigued to find out what happen.
