Michigan Against TSA Groping & Policy Change! June 30/11
Following in the footsteps of liberty-minded lawmakers in Texas, some Michigan lawmakers are now considering making it a misdemeanor offense for US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents to "conduct an intrusive, personal search on citizens without reasonable cause." The proposal, which really just reaffirms what the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution already states, represents the second attempt by a US state to restrain the TSA from illegally groping and molesting innocent travelers without just cause.
Rep. Tom McMillin (R-Rochester Hills) introduced the legislation in his state following Rep. David Simpson's (R-Longview) introduction of anti-groping legislation in Texas. If passed, Rep. McMillin's bill will punish TSA violators with up to 93 days in jail, a $500 fine, or both, for violating its provisions, which include "intentionally touch[ing] the clothed or unclothed breast, genitalia, buttocks or anus of [travelers] except upon reasonable cause to believe that the individual may be concealing an item that is prohibited on that public property or on that mode of public transportation."
Some detractors of the legislation claim that it attempts to unlawfully "preempt federal rules," but this is not the case when "federal rules" clearly violate the US Constitution. In this case, the TSA's egregious policies and offensive treatment against innocent travelers are wholly preempting constitutional rules, which are the supreme law of the land, and individual states actually have a duty to put a stop to this injustice by passing such laws for the protection of their citizens.
"The federal government is not God," said McMillin in a recent statement. "It doesn't get to decide what it can do to our citizens. The is one law that needs to be in place."
McMillin's statements apply not only to TSA abuses, but also to countless other federal policies that are in clear violation of the US Constitution, including both Obamacare and the federal income tax. The Tenth Amendment to the US Constitution clearly states that powers not explicitly granted to the federal government within its provisions are reserved to the individual states and the people of those states.

TSA POLICY CHANGE!
In a policy change announcement, the TSA now claims it will soon stop molesting little children by reaching into their pants and feeling their genitals. That we live in such a police state today where the opening line to a news story even mentions government agents molesting little children should be downright astonishing, but it's the truth. Of course, the TSA never claimed it was "molesting" children, and it describes its policy change as a way to "screen children without using invasive measures."
That kind of doublespeak deserves a place in the Hall of Fame of Cowardly Language, alongside President Bush's claims of "Weapons of Mass Destruction" and President Obama's description of war in Libya as "kinetic action."
The TSA, of course, has mastered the art of Orwellian doublespeak. This is the agency that insists it does not "confiscate" anything from air travelers. Instead, those travelers all "willfully surrender" their pocket knives, decorative souvenir globes and other items that the TSA steals from them and then sells for a profit (http://www.naturalnews.com/032757_T...).
So, you see, in the language of the TSA, they never really "molest" anyone, although if you or I did the same thing they do on a routine basis, we would be charged with molestation. Somehow, when government employees commit these crimes, they are excused from the law by simply changing the words they use to describe their crimes.
It's as if some guy walks into a bank, sticks a gun to the cashier's head, collects thousands of dollars in cash, and then explains that he wasn't really robbing the bank at all. "The cashier willfully surrendered the money," he could claim, using TSA language. ( this illegal crap is going on in Canada under the lies of terrorism done by Canadian, USA, British and Spanish Governments take them to task folks Tami)
The TSA is lying, of course
The TSA's announcement that it will stop molesting little children is, of course, an outright lie. The agency already announced the same policy change late last year but kept on molesting children anyway (http://www.prisonplanet.com/tsa-lie...). The simple truth of the matter is that if we are relying on the TSA to police itself, then we're all fools -- we should be arresting TSA agents right now for the crimes they are committing against innocent children (and adults).
Waiting around for the TSA to announce it will control itself is a surrender of our power and rights to a rogue governmental organization that respects no law. The agency has already ridiculously claimed the U.S. Constitution gives it "supreme power" over the states, meaning no one can question its authority on any matter whatsoever. This is the position of a tyrannical organization that must be disbanded if we are to restore our freedoms as guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution.
The TSA remains a threat to the states and has already threatened to enact an economic blockade against the state of Texas if lawmakers there outlaw the TSA's lewd groping pat-downs (http://www.naturalnews.com/032514_T...).
Now the TSA is renewing its tyrannical threats against the state of Texas, which has reintroduced legislation that would outlaw the federal government's molestation of innocent travelers. As PrisonPlanet.com reports, the TSA is once again saying "it will take legal action to prevent the law being implemented, indicating that the government could once again resort to threatening Texas with a blockade that would impose a de facto no-fly zone over the state."

TSA logic makes your head spin
Why does the TSA grope little children and reach down their pants as part of a screening process? TSA head John Pistole claims that terrorists might use 10-year-olds to carry bombs onto airplanes. While that possibility may at first sound alarming, consider this: the U.S. government hires TSA employees with the IQs of four-year-olds to reach down your pants, and that's far scarier. I'd rather fly with a 10-year-old bomber than a TSA nincompoop any day. At least you can try to negotiate with the 10-year-old. TSA agents, on the other hand, are cognitively incapable of processing logical language. You can prove this to yourself by attempting to reason with one of them at the airport about the bottle of water you're trying to get through security. (Good luck with that...)
It's not that they don't try to invoke cognitive function from time to time, however. In a recent Senate hearing, John Pistole whipped out his linguistic Jedi mastery skills and declared, "We need to use common sense." This brilliant realization nearly blinded onlookers who wondered whether "common sense" would include checking infants for poop bombs in their diapers. (http://www.prisonplanet.com/tsa-def...)
Common sense, you may recall, has been banished from the TSA ever since 2008 when a brown-skinned individual hid some common sense in his pocket and tried to set off a commonsense info-bomb at the airport. Clever TSA agents discovered the common sense, confiscated it and then swore a vendetta against it ever since. Now, you can't even bring common sense with you on an airplane. If you try to actually use common sense -- for example saying things like "Hey did you realize this radiation scanning machine is also irradiating YOU workers all day long?" -- you are immediately rebuked and treated as some kind of terrorist.
The TSA hasn't actually stopped any terrorists from blowing up airplanes, by the way, but it has managed to create a nationwide common sense-free network spanning every major airport in the USA. Leave your brain at home, folks, because you're only allowed to pack one 3-oz. bottle of liquid and a single mental thought on any given flight. That thought must be one of blind obedience to a police state agency that insists it has the supreme power to finger your anus, fondle your cockadoodle and backhand your hoohah, all with the feigned justification that comes from uttering the "T" word... "Terrorism!"
TSA: where morons and perverts go to find employment
What's really interesting about the TSA's announcement that the agency will stop molesting 12-year-olds is that in doing so, they are now admitting they will keep molesting 13-year-olds. And 14, 15, 16-year-olds, too. Plus veterans, grannies and "special needs" adults who get their comfort toys taken away by TSA morons who would actually be hard-pressed to out-think the mentally retarded in an IQ contest.
Somebody's gotta hire these people, I suppose. Even though McDonalds is on a huge hiring spree, even McDonalds requires workers to be intelligent enough to interact with the public with a sense of basic human dignity. Even your basic Wal-Mart greeter must demonstrate some fundamental understanding of keeping customers happy. But for those who utterly fail to value the dignity of other human beings or are too mentally incapacitated to offer anything of value to society, the TSA is always hiring. (They'll even give you a neat looking badge!) ( Satanist 101 Sadistic torture is enjoyable to them Tami)
By the way, if you really want to know how illegal the TSA's actions really are, try this little experiment this coming Halloween (not really, but I'm making a point using satire): Dress up as a TSA agent and then run around your neighborhood fondling little kids. It won't take long before somebody calls the cops and has you arrested. And that's what we should be doing right now to the costume-wearing TSA agents in the airports, too.
TSA Robs Citizens & Violate your Homes!? June 27/11
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Police said on Friday they have recovered over $30,000 worth of stolen goods in the arrest of an LAX baggage screener.
Paul Yashou, 37, worked for the Transportation Security Administration in the lobby of Terminal One at LAX for nearly nine years before his arrest on Thursday. He is accused of stealing items from passenger luggage and taking it home — sometimes even for a profit.
KNX 1070′s John Brooks reports a tip from a pawn shop in Irvine led police to Yashou and the stolen items. Yashou is being held on felony burglary charges.
His arrest comes over one month after another TSA officer was busted for allegedly stealing items from a traveler’s suitcase at Terminal 6 at the nation’s second-busiest airport.

TSA Violating your Homes?? (Still think we whistleblowers are not talking the truth about Nazi one world order applications Tami)
MILWAUKEE - USA - Think you could avoid the TSA's body scanners and pat-downs by not flying, taking the train or bus, then you're wrong. The TSA wants to come to your home to complete searches on U.S. citizens even if you do not use any public transport.
"This is just the next step in our special TSA pre-crime initiative where everyone will be screened before they even embark on any type of journey. We've heard bad things about you folks who are not even travelling or avoiding public places just because you don't want your groin groped or an internal body search. Well, we have news for you, we'll be knocking on your doors at home to bodysearch you there as well," TSA head, John Lacerta Pistole, told the Washington Observer.
The new TSA rules will require the whole population including new born babies and severely handicapped people to be searched in their homes.
Refusing entry to the TSA search party could result in the search denier being detained indefinitely and moved under duress to a secret holding area.
"Remember, the next knock on your home's door could be from a group of TSA officials waiting with gloved hands to search your orifices and your families holes too. You must grant entry for these officials into your property so that they can violate your bodies with impunity. Once they have searched your bodies, you will be required to put your clothes back on and let the officials leave. You must be calm at all times and any form of agitation, anger or abuse towards our trained TSA goons will result in either tasering or forced detention. Please be aware that we will also be confiscating weapons in all American households, so leave your guns by the door and we'll take those as well as your daughter's virginity," Kevin Pedoslime, a TSA spokesman announced on all U.S. TV channels yesterday.
TSA Causing Cancer!
FOIA documents reveal how “large number of workers have been falling victim to cancer, strokes and heart disease”
Paul Joseph Watson
Tuesday, June 28, 2011
Fearful of provoking further public resistance to naked airport body scanners, the TSA has been caught covering up a surge in cases of TSA workers developing cancer as a result of their close proximity to radiation-firing devices, perhaps the most shocking revelation to emerge from the latest FOIA documents obtained by the Electronic Privacy Information Center.
After Union representatives in Boston discovered a “cancer cluster” amongst TSA workers linked with radiation from the body scanners, the TSA sought to downplay the matter and refused to issue employees with dosimeters to measure levels of exposure.
The documents indicate how, “A large number of workers have been falling victim to cancer, strokes and heart disease.”
“The Department, rather than acting on it, or explaining its position seems to have just dismissed. I don’t think that’s the way most other agencies would have acted in a similar situation if they were confronted with that question,” EPIC’s Marc Rotenberg said.
In an email sent to Heather Callahan (PDF), deputy federal security director at Boston Logan International Airport, union representatives express their concern about “TSA Boston’s growing number of TSOs working here that have thus far been diagnosed with cancer.”
Of course, if TSA workers who are merely standing near the scanners are already developing cancer, frequent flyers are also putting themselves in harm’s way by standing directly inside the radiation-firing machines.
As we reported yesterday, newly released internal government documents, obtained via the Freedom Of Information Act by the Electronic Privacy Information Center, reveal that the TSA, and specifically the head of the Department of Homeland Security, “publicly mischaracterized” the findings of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, in stating that NIST had positively confirmed the safety of full body scanners in tests.
In erroneously citing both NIST and the Johns Hopkins school of medicine to claim that the body scanners are safe, the TSA has also deliberately misled the public on the dangers posed by the devices.
Documents obtained by EPIC show that, far from affirming their safety, NIST warned that airport screeners should avoid standing next to full body scanners in order to keep exposure to harmful radiation “as low as reasonably achievable.”
Further documents illustrate how a Johns Hopkins study actually revealed that radiation zones around body scanners could exceed the “General Public Dose Limit,” contradicting repeated claims by the TSA that Johns Hopkins had validated the safety of the devices.
At the time we pointed out that Dr Michael Love, who runs an X-ray lab at the department of biophysics and biophysical chemistry at the Johns Hopkins school of medicine had publicly stated two days previously that “statistically someone is going to get skin cancer from these X-rays”.
TSA workers complained about the radiation dangers of the scanners back in December, saying they were being kept in the dark by their employers, despite repeated requests for information.
“We don’t think the agency is sharing enough information,” said Milly Rodriguez, occupational health and safety specialist at the American Federation of Government Employees, the union that represents TSA workers.
A study conducted last year by Dr David Brenner, head of Columbia University’s center for radiological research, found that the body scanners are likely to lead to an increase in a common type of skin cancer called basal cell carcinoma, which affects the head and neck.
Following the study, Brenner urged medical authorities to look at his work, pointing to the dangerous notion of mass scanning millions of people without proper oversight.
“There really is no other technology around where we’re planning to X-ray such an enormous number of individuals. It’s really unprecedented in the radiation world,” said Brenner.
Similar concerns to those explored in the Columbia University study were voiced in February 2010 by the influential Inter-Agency Committee on Radiation Safety, who warned in a report that the scanners increase the risk of cancer and birth defects and should not be used on pregnant women or children.
Despite governments claiming that backscatter x-ray systems produce radiation too low to pose a threat, the organization concluded in their report that governments must justify the use of the scanners and that a more accurate assessment of the health risks is needed.
Pregnant women and children should not be subject to scanning, according to the report, adding that governments should consider “other techniques to achieve the same end without the use of ionizing radiation.”
“The Committee cited the IAEA’s 1996 Basic Safety Standards agreement, drafted over three decades, that protects people from radiation. Frequent exposure to low doses of radiation can lead to cancer and birth defects, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,” reported Bloomberg.
In a recent letter to President Obama’s Science Advisor, several University of California professors also complained of how, “There is still no rigorous, hard, data for the safety of x-ray airport passenger scanners.” The scientists noted how the safety tests for the scanners were carried out exclusively by manufacturers, and recommended an immediate moratorium on use of the devices until the health risks can be independently studied.
