A suspected bomb was found on a Munich-bound flight Thursday, a convenient coincidence in light of the growing revolt over the Transportation Security Administration porn show/grope fest going on at American airports.
For a little history, after 9/11 — where a bunch of Middle-Eastern cave dwellers are reported to have commandeered aircraft with box cutters and expertly flown them into the Twin Towers, Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania after taking a couple of flying lessons — airport security was ramped up, nail clippers were banned and white-haired little old ladies were singled out for extra screening if their artificial hips set off the metal detector.
After Richard Reid (the shoe bomber) set his sneakers on fire after he was allowed on a plane that took off in Paris — despite raising red flags over his appearance, the fact that he had no luggage and failed to adequately answer the questions of French National Police interrogators — American travelers were forced to remove their shoes and open their carry-ons for inspection, and business travelers, men in wheel chairs and little old ladies were singled out for extra scrutiny that included, at times, a pat down.
After Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab set his own crotch on fire on a plane he boarded in Amsterdam — despite being on the U.S. State Department’s no-fly list and not having a passport, but with the assistance of an Indian secret operative with ties to the Israeli Mossad and U.S. Central Intelligence Agency — American passengers were denied the ability to take liquids on planes and children, the handicapped and infirm were singled out and humiliated with increasingly intrusive searches.
Conveniently, former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff’s new company just happened to be selling naked body scanners at the time, and the U.S. government snapped some of them up and began deploying them in U.S. airports. We were assured the dose of radiation received was harmless and that certainly they wouldn’t save the nude photographs that had TSA watchers all atwitter. We’ve since learned the radiation is harmful and the images can indeed be both saved and transmitted via the Internet.
After another false flag terror operation involving printer cartridges on a passenger-less cargo plane that departed from Yemen — in which investigators first said no explosives were found and then, a day after President Barack Obama announced there were indeed explosives, investigators changed their minds and began finding explosives everywhere they looked — the TSA announced it was buying $300 million more of the radiating naked body scanners and were henceforth going to treat all American travelers as common criminals, grab their private parts (children included) and squeeze the breasts of women and young girls. Refuse the groping and open yourself up to TSA investigation, as John Tyner has learned.
Meanwhile, we get reports that TSA agents are having fun at the public’s expense. One agent was fired for planting a bag of white powder in passengers’ bags and telling them he found drugs. Others pulled down a woman’s blouse, exposing her breasts, and laughed at her embarrassment. Agents forced a woman with a pacemaker to go through the scanners, despite the woman’s protests. Agents have made crippled, wheelchair-bound children get out of the chair and drag themselves through metal detectors. One agent made a mother drink the breast milk she had reserved for her baby. Another woman was removed from line and made to throw away her child’s sippy cup. One agent was recently recorded telling a passenger he gave up his rights when he bought an airline ticket. The stories of TSA stupidity go on and on.
Finally, finally the traveling public has had enough. They’re revolting, despite the mainstream media’s attempts at soothing the growing furor and downplaying the totalitarianism that has grown out of the TSA. Even R. Emmett Tyrrell, the founder of The American Spectator, has — disappointingly — joined in the chorus of those in government and the mainstream media who blame the Drudge Report for stoking a fire that, they believe, should not be stoked.
The fascists in charge of “airport security” — Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and TSA head John Pistole — are digging in despite the growing revolt by everyday Americans who value their health (they don’t want another dose of radiation) and their privacy (they don’t want photos of their naked bodies ogled by a bunch of TSA perverts in the airport or a bunch of panting juveniles on the Internet, and they don’t want to be touched in places reserved for lovers and doctors). Americans certainly don’t want their children subjected to such nonsense.
In a sign of government elitist hubris and arrogance, Napolitano this week went so far as to say that if Americans won’t submit to the TSA procedures they can find another way to travel. Now the fascists are deciding how you should travel.
Thankfully there are people who are willing to resist. A National Opt-Out Day is set for Nov. 24. Travelers are encouraged to opt out of the naked body scanners, forcing time-consuming enhanced pat downs. The goal is to shut down the system. Others are filing lawsuits over TSA abuses.
Some in government have gotten the message and taken up the cause. Representative Ron Paul (R-Texas), the only statesman still in Congress today, has introduce a bill that establishes that airport security screeners are not immune from any law regarding physical contact with another person, making images of another person or causing physical harm through the use of radiation-emitting machinery on another person.
Representative Ted Poe (R-Texas) said from the floor of the House that the scanners violate the 4th Amendment. Representative John Mica (R-Fla.) recently reminded airports they aren’t required to keep the TSA in charge of their screening and can employ a private company instead. The Orlando Sanford International Airport says that’s what it’s going to do.
The district attorneys of several states are now saying they’re going to investigate any complaints they get about TSA misbehavior.
Yesterday’s Munich terror scare will no doubt give the fascists more ammunition to try and increase their grip over airport security. If that doesn’t work, we’ve seen they’re not afraid to have covert operatives send another weak-minded but ineffective patsy onto a plane to try something to give the totalitarian TSA another reason to strip Americans of their rights and dignity.
This resistance has momentum, and travelers can’t waiver now. If they do, all hope is lost.
