More DHS Controls Coming FAST

More DHS Controls Coming FAST

Coming soon, to a sporting event, concert or other public venue near you — Future Attribute Screening Technology (FAST) from the Department of Homeland Security. (The video below is from the DHS.)

This is truly Orwellian technology. And it’s just one of many programs DHS is working on to “keep you safe.”

In the days before Thanksgiving, the people staged a mini-revolt over the Transportation Security Administration’s dangerous and unConstitutional naked body scanners/peep show and the increasingly invasive enhanced body pat-downs/grope fest being conducted on innocent airline passengers.

The TSA backed down on the day before Thanksgiving by roping off most of the scanners and ceasing the pat-downs in order to thwart the passenger backlog that National Opt-Out Day would have caused. TSA denied it of course, but passengers noticed the scanners were out of commission, and long lines never materialized because passengers had nothing to opt out of.

Isn’t it curious how the tougher screening procedures were so vital to national security on normal travel days but unnecessary on one of the busiest travel days of the year? Not really. Not to those who understand that the underwear bomber — the type of threat TSA says it’s protecting us from — was helped onto his flight by a well-dressed Indian man with purported ties to the CIA and Israeli Mossad, had no passport and was on a U.S. State Department No-Fly list.

In other words, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s Christmas Day bombing attempt was a false-flag terror incident designed to frighten the public and steer them toward accepting an ever-increasing totalitarian state.

TSA director John Pistole says the TSA is looking at its options and may change the pre-flight procedures. But DHS continues to look for ways to steal your ability to move about freely without the glowing eyes of Big Brother on your every move.
