Yeah but you know there are

Yeah but you know there are many people out there who will never be able to agree with me no matter how much they might want to. They've been programmed with nationalism almost since birth.

Any mention of a politically united world, no matter how free, just, and prosperous it could be, just will not ever sit well with some people.

Everything I say is a pipe dream anyway; none of us will ever live to see it.

I am out of touch with most Americans precisely because I am not out of touch with reality.

Threats?

Since when was asking someone if they were gonna shoot you considered a crime or threat?

It's no different than asking an officer if you're being detained or not.

Are you guys really serious?

Are you guys really serious? You are comparing a question that pertains to potential harm, murder and or death to whether you are being detained?

I am ignoring this thread, it is a festival of ignorance in here. Just read the constitution it explains everything.

Thank you so much

it went viral - Thanks!

Since I am totally ignorant

Since I am totally ignorant about the constitution, could you please tell me where it says that asking a stupid question is a threat. I'm really stupid about this constitution thing and could use your wisdom

I started " apologizing and kneeling" because my wife was locked up. If it was just me, I wouldn't have complied at all.

He had his hand on his gun as if he was going to attack me; that's why I was saying, "What are you gonna do?" multiple times.

Unfortunately

You have run out of time.

Due to lack of evidence from visual footage we cannot really come to the conclusion that he is provoking, trying to incite hate, or if the officer was really going to do something.

Based on the situation, it is understandable and best to deny him entry from the way he was conducting himself, but not charged for a crime.

This is basic troubleshooting 101. Don't assume I am ignorant because I'm asking questions.

Asking questions.

You didn't answer the question.

The answer is that it is

The answer is that it is completely different. one has nothing to do with the other in any way.

just read the Constitution

the same was spoken in many countries for thousands of years.

And -
These same words you spoke they used to enslave us!

as a teen I was arrested many times under the Polish Constitution(fixed by at that time Communists).

fascism and all lovers of it must be exposed!!!

Please explain to me how

Please explain to me how following the constitution enslaves us. I am not talking about another country and their constitution, I am speaking of the US constitution.

you do it

Constitution stands for itself.

Watching your work for a long time -
why don't you stay with your past names here?

When you create dozens of anti Alex Jones posts you must expect a blowback exposing you for who you really are.

Frankly, it is ... NOT WORTH THE LISTEN!

Quite frankly, having been in police work, and being 1000% behind Ron Paul and limited government, opposing fraud and criminal aggression on other sovereign nations, fighting for 40 years against big and unconstitutional government tyranny, unsound fiat theft money, and loss of liberty... it became clear after about one minute this clip is not worth the precious time to continue listening... the actors involved obviously setup the situation and are woefully and stupidly ignorant not only of reality of liberty and true need for limited government, but also of common culture, tact, politeness, and simple maturity!

In short, they made asses of themselves because they apparently resemble such creatures! I found nothing amiss in the responses and need to verify carried out by the officers. Instead they are faced with arrogance, assumed power and authority, and childishness!

They need to be fined and sent home to think about how to grow up and answer civil questions in a civil manner. A free society requires responsibility also, and that is the meaning of the "rule of law". If they are going to act as anarchists, they will of course be treated as such!

I have been crossing the Canadian border into and out of Canada for 45 years... without incident! Never. My experience speaks loudly to me in this case! They were wrong. I hear nothing amiss from the border guards, constitutionally charged with handling millions of people, and that in an efficient manner.

Gone are the days of free travel into the USA. It is sad, but that is a fact. Also gone are the days of leaving the doors unlocked and your keys in your car.

The return of such days rests solely upon the return of Spirituality and love for fellow man, upon the hearts and minds of people. Without the Spirit of the Lord found in the hearts and minds of the people, as Rev. Witherspoon stated so succinctly in 1776, "tyranny shall rule"!

Hear! Hear!

I could not agree more. The agents were simply doing their (Constitutional) job, which is to protect our sovereign borders. The Canadian in the audio clearly had an attitude from the very beginning- he was looking for a confrontation. And so, he got one. wha, wha, wha...

With all of the REAL dragons to slay, do we need to stoop to these imaginary, tempest-in-a-teapot, contrivances? It dumbs-down the critical issues of our movement and makes us look like a bunch of spoiled, whining tittie-babies.

Daily Paul needs American moderators- is THAT too much to ask? I'm tired of all the "color commentary" from people who have no skin in the game.

Hey I'm an American and a

Hey I'm an American and a small business owner. These agents(useless tax feeders)aren't protecting anything! They are useless thug criminals just looking for a mark to pick on. They escalated the confrontation for no reason. They constantly lied(which is pretty standard for cops). They prevented customers from doing business with small business owners at that mall. They give our whole country a bad name.

Sounds like you drank the

"We are the World" Kool-Aid. Sorry... but I don't buy that.

The Canadian, from the git-go, had an attitude. He was looking for confrontation. He got exactly what he was looking for. I've got no problem with that. For a non-citizen, coming into our country IS a privelege. This is OUR house and the Castle Doctrine still (should) apply at our borders.

Ours borders are that of a sovereign Nation. Cross them (as a non-citizen) with reverence and respect. But come in "packing an attitude" and get what you get.

Life is a contact sport, sport.

an 'attitude', because he didn't know exactly what stores he and

his wife planned to visit?

As I listened I was amazed, because if I were to go to a mall (not something I do, BTW) I would not have any idea exactly which stores I would visit.

I felt that the Canadian was trying to be honest, and he honestly didn't know, and that upset the border guard--

I 'heard' the frustration of the Canadian--

"how can I tell you which stores I will visit, when I don't know yet?"--

he told the guard that they were planning to visit a mall even--

that should have been enough--

the guard's stance became ridiculous at that point--

it felt to me as though someone would ask, "so you're going out to eat; what are you going to order; I need to know exactly"--

it was ridiculous; it was insane--

it all sounded entirely too real to me.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Sovereign nations are a

Sovereign nations are a fantasy. Only individuals are sovereign. Until you personally purchase a piece of land, you have no right to dictate its use or who is allowed to be present in it.

Organizing into this fantasy called "government" and drawing imaginary lines on a map doesn't excuse that sort of criminal behavior.

As for his "attitude," he has every right to think what he wants and be in whatever mood he desires. It harms no one. You're not the thought police.

The state is dead. Accept it.

I am out of touch with most Americans precisely because I am not out of touch with reality.

Nope...no Kool-Aid here.

Sorry I don't need a useless pig criminal deciding that someone shouldn't come into this country because that certain pig didn't like his attitude....and then charge and imprison(on my dime) someone on bogus charges.

Let me guess, you make your living because people with guns go around and collect it for you.

ps. I heard nothing in that video that would constitute an attitude from the Canadian. It just sounded like someone who was truly bewildered by the actions of the idiot border pig.

yes, bewildered--

surprised; the Canadian was trying to be honest and couldn't please the guard/officer, so matter what he tried to do--
I've seen a lot of things on here that talk about what to do when stopped by officers of various types--

and one of the things I've heard is that a person ask, "what am I doing wrong?"--

or something to that effect; I'm sure it's all so detailed--

so as to make *us* all afraid we might say the wrong words--

that sort of fear is what is wrong--

I could tell that the Canadian was actually trying to cooperate at some point-

he wanted to know 'why'--

I think he was scared--

No, I want to keep this post/thread alive, because I think this is so very wrong.

Someone on another part of this thread suggested that the Niagara Falls Chamber of Commerce needs to hear about this; harrassing people coming across the border to shop isn't going to do too much for business, however *you* look at it--

I kept wanting to say, "hey, {Canadian fellow}, just ask if you can go home and promise never to come back"--

talk about inhospitable--

And when the guard talked about how many terrorists cross the border, I wanted to ask, I sincerely wanted to know, "and how do you measure their terrorist potential; are these people carrying bombs?"--

It felt very ridiculous to me--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

I'm sure he was scared!

Those completely false and BS charges that they arrested him for could have landed him in jail for 2 years!!!

I once did a 3 month backpacking trip through Europe and got caught with 10 grams of cannibus going across the Swiss/Italian border. The Italians confiscated the herb, gave me a written warning and then let me go on my way into Italy...the whole senerio only lasted about an hour. As I got back on the train to enjoy the rest of my trip in Italy I was thinking how horrible my experience would have been had this happened coming into the US.

see

you state you move freely between US and Canada for such a long time -
Sir could you tell us what is your line of work in real life?

There are hundreds of thousands of people in US detention centres and you say this?

One of the many reasons US economy is dead is because people don't visit USA anymore !!!

both parties were being jerks

and with a little courtesy this could have been a non-event.

However I think this is symptomatic of a larger problem.

Listening to that audio of him and his wife being unjustly bullied and jailed by power-hungry and dominating thugs reminded me of my tormentors in at that time Communist run Poland.

on a positive note - Peter Watts has avoided jail time

A Canadian science fiction writer who refused to comply during an inspection by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers has avoided jail.

Fifty-two-year-old Peter Watts of Toronto avoided a 60-day jail sentence imposed by Circuit Court Judge James Adair by paying more than $1,500 (U.S.) in fines and fees.

Mr. Watts faced up to two years in prison after a St. Clair County jury in Port Huron found him guilty of obstructing and resisting a police officer.

Mr. Watts was in the US, trying to cross into Canada Dec. 8 at the Blue Water Bridge when his vehicle was selected for inspection. Authorities say he was detained after becoming noncompliant. Watts said he was trying to comply.

Mr. Watts' books include Starfish, Maelstrom and Behemoth, known as the “Rifters Trilogy.
