Power of the banks and police state
In a scene of how international banking is more important than the US Constitution and Maryland citizens, after a Wells Fargo bank robbery more than thirty heavily armed police officers shut down interstate 270. This event was hidden by the mainstream news media. The scene was full of aggressive barking dogs, aggressive yelling police pointing guns at everyone demanding they give up their fourth amendment rights "Pop the trunk! Pop the trunk!", helicopters, sirens, and dozens of miles of people stuck held prisoner in their cars. One woman trapped in her car for all day leaned out of her window to puke and was forced at gunpoint to puke inside her own car.
The bank robbers were eventually caught and none were hiding in any trunk. They all surrendered peacefully, though such a scene with millions of imprisoned civilians on the roads, could have ended with a hostage situation. They had robbed a mere $7,000 dollars, a small fraction of the economic loss from stopping traffic all day. Even the money the police themselves spent on holding millions of people hostage far exceeded the money the bank robbers took.
2016 US Presidential election
During the 2016 US Presidential election, voters were watching the electronic voting machines fraudulently changing their votes. In Texas, many polling stations had to do an emergency switch to paper ballots. Reports came in Maryland, the machines also were switching votes.
