Obama’s Latest Joke
February 16, 2011 by Bob Livingston
For President Barack Obama, the traveling public’s concerns over the Transportation Security Administration’s 4th Amendment-violating policies are a big joke.
At his Jan. 25 State of the Union Address, Obama chuckled after his pronouncement that he wanted to “invest” (code for print more money and throw it at another boondoggle) billions of dollars in high speed rail. “For some trips, it will be faster than flying… without the pat downs,” Obama joked.
Of course, Obama’s cute joke falls flat in the face of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s statements that radiation scanners and pat downs are being implemented at bus and train stations and sporting events. So, Mr. and Mrs. Traveler, the real joke’s on you because, get this, Obama’s latest budget increases Federal Spending on the DHS by $37 billion, earmarking the funds to place more naked body scanners in airports across the country. (And that’s on top of the other billions he wants to waste on his pet projects as he seeks to accelerate the crash of the dollar, but that’s a topic for another day.)
That’s $37 billion to select companies with government ties designed to force travelers to submit to being irradiated by machines that have shown dubious effectiveness at spotting explosives and have not been adequately tested as to the hazard they pose to travelers or operators.
Government’s false flag terror operations — more evidence of them surfaced yesterday when it was revealed the “terrorist” behind England’s 7/7 terror attacks was a United States informant and was released from prison after serving only four and a half years of a 70-year sentence because of his “cooperation” — have succeeded in duping the general public into believing the government is acting in their best interests.
But government is interested in one thing only: Creating a totalitarian police state that controls every move of the masses. And for Obama and the other elites in our government thugocracy, that’s very funny.
