Thankfully I don’t have to abide by any restrictive guidelines or be careful to step on toes or saying the inappropriate thing. This is MY piece of cyberspace and I do with it, what I want. Now the topic at hand that black hole of a department called the TSA, which literally translates to “Thousands Standing Around” because that is essentially what this “security” (and I use that word loosely) does.

While the U.S. Government will lead you to believe that air travel is safer since 9-11 and the inception of the DHS, of which the TSA are their official mall cops. When I was at the airlines they were contracted to man the security checkpoints and were called, “airport security screeners.” I am sure many of you went through a magnetometer in the “old days” when you didn’t have strip down to your skivvies or worry about being man handed by some TSO if you set off the alarm or being something questionable through the checkpoint.

In the dead of night, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) administratively reclassified airport security screeners as Transportation Security Officers. The TSA then moved to administratively upgrade TSO’s uniforms to resemble those of a federal law enforcement officer. They further completed the makeover with metal law enforcement badges. Not surprisingly, government bureaucrats at the TSA left out one crucial component during the artificial makeover – actual federal law enforcement training as is required of Federal Air Marshalls” (source).

As I have been saying for years, this is nothing by window dressing! Their alleged law enforcement powers are still nil! What happens when there is an issue at a security checkpoint these days. When the TSA supervisor cannot resolve the issue, local law enforcement are called in, while the TSOs go on about their duties of securing air travel for our nation. I feel soooo safe! *sarcasm*

It would only be fitting that a new piece of legislation, H.R. 308: Stop TSA’s Reach In Policy Act or STRIP (who comes up with these acronyms) will, “prohibit certain employees of the Transportation Security Administration from using the title of “officer” and from wearing uniforms and carrying badges resembling those of law enforcement officers” (source). Seriously? We are going to have legislative bodies discuss this, wasting and time money, which they are very good at. But come on there must be a better way to accomplish correcting what is wrong with the TSA.

Unfortunately the DHS continues to expand their scope of powers with their VIPR or Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response teams away from our nation’s airports. These teams conduct unannounced checkpoints. Almost sounds like Nazi Germany. Papers? I need papers? TSOs are among the ranks of VIPR teams as well, still with no more power than a mall cop.

So remember if you are approached y a TSO, wearing their fancy blue uniforming, the gleaming gold badge, you don’t have to show them a damn thing. They have no powers and have not undergone any official “officer” training to use such a title. Unfortunate the government will continue to deny the truth about 9-11 and these random checkpoints are becoming more common in the United States.


Words Monitored by DHS

Ah yes, Big Sis and the DHS is at it again, turning the United States of America into a more police state. Jawohl! The following is from the DHS and their “binder.” Wonder if I will get DHS knocking on my door anytime soon.

In the latest revelation of how the federal government is monitoring social media and online news outlets, the Electronic Privacy Information Center has posted online a 2011 Department of Homeland Security manual that includes hundreds of key words (such as those above) and search terms used to detect possible terrorism, unfolding natural disasters and public health threats. The center, a privacy watchdog group, filed a Freedom of Information Act request and then sued to obtain the release of the documents.

The 39-page “Analyst’s Desktop Binder” used by the department’s National Operations Center includes no-brainer words like “”attack,” “epidemic” and “Al Qaeda” (with various spellings). But the list also includes words that can be interpreted as either menacing or innocent depending on the context, such as “exercise,” “drill,” “wave,” “initiative,” “relief” and “organization.”

TSA and Acts of Lewdness?

Child Molester Ralph David AndersonWow, why does this not hit me as a surprise? The headline reads, DA charges Spring Creek man with lewdness. While Elko, Nevada is not a thriving metropolis there are still degenerates who need work and find comfort and a paycheck in the government make work program known as a the Transportation Security Administration. This is the same agency charged with the responsibility of protecting air travelers. Unfortunately Ralph David Anderson, 61 found comfort in “six counts of lewdness with a child.”

This sick fuck got his molestation training from the TSA and probably enjoyed his position at the agency having the responsibility to “pat down” people and especially children. Sick and twisted? Yep, sure is. But he is really no different than many of the other child molesters out on the street today. This guy is paid by the government to perform his acts that included, teaching various sex acts, having sexual contact, teaching the under 14 year old girl to “say various vulgar words associated with body parts and sexual activities,” rub lotion over his body, watch porn and drink alcohol.

Together this dirt bag was charged with only six counts by the Elko Sheriff’s Department. What’s worse is this guy is being held on ONLY a $250,000 bond! Why? I am quite surprised Big Sis and “The Pisser” (John Pistole) aren’t there to stand behind his actions and bail him out in order to get him back to his screening position. What a joke! I’, sorry aviation security in the USA is a completely joke.

Being we are nearing 10 years since the U.S. Government’s “inside job” known as 9-11 and things are no better. Many sheeple are processed daily by the TSA and many accept, what is now the “norm” when they fly. It’s unfortunately more of the population doesn’t stand up to TPTB (the powers that be) and fight for their freedoms and rights as individuals of this once great nation.

I am white. I am a terrorist.

This is the theme of the new public service announcement from Big Sis and Homeland Security. I feel I am being discriminated against by DHS because I am white. It’s unfortunate that DHS (TSA) don’t want to actually profile those individuals who have committed acts of terrorism against the USA, “despite the fact that the 126 people who were indicted on terrorist-related charges in the United States over the last two years were all Muslim.”

In these times where it’s being anti-American to speak up for yourself and fight for your rights, the DHS has given a nod to political correctness, “this is in fact a deliberate effort by the feds to characterize predominantly white, middle class, politically engaged Americans as domestic extremists. It’s all part of the agenda to frame dissent against big government as dangerous radicalism.

Instead of spending time and effort securing our nation and people from threats abroad, the government would much rather start labeling individual Americans and groups as “possible” terrorists. Some of those groups including are people who participated in the End the Fed protests across the country, the FBI has gone as far to “characterize returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan as a major domestic terrorist threat.”

In March 2009 the MIAC report listed “Ron Paul supporters, libertarians, people who display bumper stickers, people who own gold, or even people who fly a U.S. flag and equates them with radical race hate groups and terrorists.” The examples, most of which have been push aside by the mainstream media are topics of discussion, unfortunately many in the U.S. are unaware they are being lied to and profiled by THEIR government.

Since I don’t stand by my government and with those who question authority and attempt to defend their rights and freedoms I am probably deemed a terrorists as well. The actions of the TSA is just one small piece is in this grand game, in which government is using the people as pawns for their own agenda, one of which is never reported in the nightly news.

The federal government’s clear intent to profile politically active middle class Americans Muslias likely terrorists is manifestly provable from their own internal and public documents. Only when conservatives become cognizant of the fact that they too are as much of a target in the “war on terror” as Muslims, whether it’s a Republican or a Democrat in the White House, will we have any hope of dismantling the Homeland Security police state.”


A Chat-Down

Yes, you have heard of the illegal “pat-down” that violates your Fourth Amendment right that the TSA practices on a daily basis at the nation’s airport. Now, the latest in improve security (allegedly) is the Israeli-style “chat-down.” This is just too good to make up. The TSA has begun a new “behavioral screening program that is modeled after Israel’s airport security screening methods.”

The TSA has now rolled out “Behavior Detection Officers” on a 60 day trial period to confront travelers, “ask a few personal questions and look for signs that they may be hiding something. Suspicious passengers will be sent to a secondary screening or referred to a law enforcement officer.”

Leave it to DHS (or the U.S. Government) to come up with a fancy term for this nearly $1 billion national program called SPOT or Screening Passengers by Observation Technique. Rep Bernie Thompson (D-MS) questions the use of these techniques saying there, “is no scientific validation, limited or comprehensive, of the efficacy of the Assessor model of screening to detect persons who pose a security rick to aviation.

I don’t believe the use of this unproven technique will be nearly as successful as that used in Israel. Unfortunately the TSA and John Pistole are the driving force behind this new and unproven method, which does nothing for you, as an air traveler but cause you further delay in getting through security. Personally, I don’t care if the TSA likes my answers to there irrelevant questions. I would much rather have fun giving them questionable answers, but that would only lead me to the “grope me please” line at the security checkpoint.

The trial period of 60 days is rather short, I will be curious to see data (if the TSA makes it available) to the number of travelers that were confronted and questioned versus the number that were sent for additional screening. Answer me this, how many of these confrontations actually led to detaining a suspect terrorist who was going to blow up an airplane? I’ll answer that now. None.
