    I'm very pleased that Pastor Anderson will be on.

    Its ridiculous that you let this self-proclaimed "pastor" on with his lies. He is an antagonist and merely wants his 15 minutes. His on youtube videos show him to be such, with his rants against how President Obama is a "devil" and statements on his personal blog about how vaccines are used as "population control"

    ps. The Border Patrol in Yuma don't carry tazers. Border patrol in San Diego do, and some agents in Tucson sector carry them also. No agents in Yuma sector have been trained on them and thus do not carry them. He was tazed by officers with the state highway patrol, regardless of what he "proclaims" in his youtube videos. after being repeatedly told to get out of the vehicle. He disobeyed a lawful order by a state peace officer, and was removed from the vehicle.

    Guess what Anderson, your "views" don't overrule US Supreme Court rulings.

    The only thing we know is what this conspiracy nut has stated. You're jumping awfully fast to convict the agents when they haven't even told their side of the story. Shameful.

    This man is an insult and bring shame on Christians everywhere.

    Brad, Mr. Anderson's political/religeous views have nothing to do with the issue of DHS overreach/abuse. When one man's rights are abused, we all lose. From what I know of the story, it's not much different from the treatment that Mr. Steve Bierfelt got from the TSA recently. Apparently, federal agents just aren't being trained properly to handle people who challenge their non-authority (or are they?).

  4. Brad Said,

    April 22, 2009 @ 4:02 pm

    No, you're just as wrong as Mr. Anderson is. His rights weren't abused. A certified narcotics dog alerts to your car and that is instant probable cause. That means they get to search it without a warrant because a vehicle is a readily mobile conveyance. I don't know what mail order law school you got your degree from but you should ask for your money back. If the authorities are fully within their right to search your vehicle, you have to exit it. He refused to exit or move his vehicle for over a long period of time, as he admits. And continued to refuse when ordered by the state highway patrol showed up. You don't have the right to resist a lawful order. And thus he was removed from the vehicle. Nowhere were his rights violated. The man is a complete fool and an antagonist. He committed a crime and was charged for it. He should go back to spouting his conspiracy theories where there is no intelligence required.

    This man does more harm to your cause, because he is making a big deal over something that he will not win. People like him are the reasons no one respects you people. Pick your battles, don't run around screaming abuse just because a known antagonist claims he was abused. Remember, everything you know came out of his mouth. There are always two sides to every story.

    Dear Mr. Napolitano

    Thanks for your efforts and contributions in fighting for out freedoms. I'm trying to find some type of help with regards to the TI [Targeted Individuals] issue.

    Is there anything that TIs can do with respect to government covert harassment?

    I've tried to hire several attorney's and was told to leave the country, or we can't help, or I'm trying to stay off the list.

    Any help would be appreicated.

    The Ominous Parallels Report

    The Ominous Parallels is a web site that discusses how The United States government uses organized Harassment and Torture perpetrated by the National Security Agency [NSA], Science Application International Corporation [SAIC] and other government agency's using Military grade Psychological Operations and Direct Energy Weapons against United States citizens, and other countries citizens from around the world.

    As a former Intelligence community worker working for Science Applications International Corporation I've come under covert-overt attack by the National Security Apparatus for whistle-blowing that the office I worked in located at Dulles, VA right beside the airport for Science Applications International Corporation was empty on the morning of the 11th of September 2001.

    Since leaving Science Applications International Corporation I've been under constant surveillance, constant harassment by the U.S. Government, its agency's and Science Application International Corporation.

    The Ominous Parallels website discusses the specifics concerning these covert types of harassment – active measures that I've been exposed to and have experienced; moreover, the specifics of how these operations work.

    For emphasis, this includes methodologies of psychological torture via direct energy weapons and covert operations. Philippe Sands book titled "The Torture Team" is profound as it speaks to these methodologies that I have experienced as a TI.

    As a TI I know that the torture at Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib are a "by-product" of something much more sinister that is going on in our world. My hope is that one day these programs will be exposed and to that end The Ominous Parallels website seeks to educate the public about these kinds of weapons, operations, players and the effect it is having on our world.

    More important is how the inhumane actions of our government parallels that of Nazi Germany between 1933 – 1945.

    This is REAL; TIs need some kind of safe haven!

    Pastor Anderson will have his day in court. He's telling the truth and the cameras will prove it.

    Why did Beck not show up? Was he frightened of being confronted over this?

    Beck is a fraud. Did anyone else watch the video of Alex Jones and Jason Bermas railing at him for about an hour over a couple of weeks ago? See for part 1.

    Disagree Brad, a einzentruppen dog "alerting" can mean he must pee, that is still no excuse for smashing in windows and tasering the man over and over.

    That could be you Brad, in the words of Tom Paine:

    I've followed Anderson's wife's blog for several months. Her husband makes a habit of harassing law enforcement and basically being obstinate – he has several YouTubes of his encounters. We cannot rely on his word about what happened. (I wish I could see the Border Control surveillance!)

    He also has preached that Jesus wore pants, that men must urinate while standing or else they are sinning, and has an hour long sermon about why the police should not exist.

    Take his statement with a large grain of salt.

    "The Supreme Court has held that an officer does not need a warrant, probable cause, or even reasonable suspicion to search you, your car, or your belongings, at a border. Therefore, any time you cross a U.S. border, you in effect consent to a search."

    The violence used against Anderson may have been excessive or illegal, that is for a court to decide. However, the officers did have the legal right to search his vehicle.

    If a law is unconstitutional, it is null and void. Therefore, any claim that any unconstitutional law upheld by the supreme court can be legally enforced is horseshit.

    I see the show clip is posted on YouTube, now. You are aware that Pastor Anderson has preached that Janet Napolitano should stay away from him if she wants to be safe, and has preached in his church that she should be shot, aren't you?

    It might be irresponsible to give him a platform.

  17. KIQ Said,

    April 23, 2009 @ 12:52 pm

    He's taught, in his church (video is on Youtube) against even having police at all, he's goaded many police officers (again, on video on Youtube) with his ridiculous tirades, he feels he's not under the authority of police officers at all, and then we are shocked this happens. No, no one's shocked that he pulled this stunt and is enjoying the limelight it has brought him, and the financial gain. Yes, he and his wife are now taking donations. They have raked in a nice little sum already.

  18. Enlightened Indigo Said,

    Greek & KIQ, I agree with both of you. People need to be aware of what "Pastor" Anderson really preaches about in his sermons. It seems he has a chip on his shoulder when it comes to authority. He preaches hate, his wife speaks hate, & their children learn & practice hate. Great job the "Pastor" & his wife are doing as parents. They say they are "Christians" but I see none of that by their despicable behavior. I've seen many "Christians" who think & feel that they are above the law.

    Rom 13:1 Let every soul be subject to the higher authorities. For there is no authority but of God; the authorities that exist are ordained by God.
    Rom 13:2 So that the one resisting the authority resists the ordinance of God; and the ones who resist will receive judgment to themselves.
    Rom 13:3 For the rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the bad. And do you desire to be not afraid of the authority? Do the good, and you shall have praise from it.
    Rom 13:4 For it is a servant of God to you for good. For if you practice evil, be afraid, for it does not bear the sword in vain; for it is a servant of God, a revenger for wrath on him who does evil.
    Rom 13:5 Therefore you must be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience' sake.
