    FBI Entraps Another Useful “Homegrown” Idiot to Push the Fake War On Terror

    Scary Muslims donning turbans and satellite phones have not attacked the United States since September 11, 2001, when a gaggle of cave dwellers magically commandeered the laws of physics and made NORAD stand down.

    Antonio Martinez: Another pathetic patsy set-up by the FBI to promote the non-existent homegrown terror threat.Instead, the government and the military-industrial-intelligence complex has engaged in a series of small attacks and would-be attacks in order to keep the global war on manufactured terror chugging along.

    Last week we were subjected to yet another phony baloney FBI orchestrated entrapment of a clueless Muslim.

    Antonio Martinez, a recent Muslim convert, who calls himself Muhammed Hussain, was arrested after undercover FBI agents supplied him with a fake car bomb. It is said Martinez aka Hussain wanted to bomb a recruiting center.

    Rod Rosenstein, a federal attorney, said the goal of Hussain’s entrapment was to deter others from planning schemes or recruiting others for their agendas.

    Big Sis, Janet Napolitano, boss over at the Ministry of Homeland Security, said “that this arrest and another in Oregon last month shows that plots and schemes are no longer planned overseas and brought into our country, but rather are being birthed from within,” according to Robert Ingram, writing for Christian Life News.

    In other words, the case is another sensationalized circus sideshow designed to convince us that al-CIA-duh is now homegrown, so we need to get used to having TSA goons sticking their hands down our pants and our kids being zapped with backscatter radiation.

    According to defense attorney Joseph Balter, Martinez was “incapable” of pulling off an attack on his own and failed miserably when he tried to recruit confederates to take part in the plot cooked up by the FBI and the government. Balter characterized the incident as a “government sting operation,” according to the Washsington Post.

    Muslim groups, led by CAIR, have lately accused the FBI and the Justice Department of entrapment. Earlier this month, Attorney General Eric Holder disputed claims that sting operations the Justice Department engaged in to target suspects in several recent terrorism cases amounted to entrapment writes Josh Gerstein for Politico.

    Holder defended the entrapment of Mohamed Mohamud, a useful idiot who allowed himself to be tricked by the FBI into thinking he was going to blow up a public Christmas tree display. “These types of operations have proven to be an essential law enforcement tool in uncovering and preventing potential terror attacks,” said Holder.

    Translation: It is essential the government find idiot savants and powerless miscreants and set them up and then use the pathetic cases in order to push the fallacious war on manufactured terror and force Americans to live in a high-tech police state.

    Austin Joins Rebellion Against Naked Body Scanners

    TSA still fails to respond to FOIA request demanding information about “domestic extremists”

    Thursday, December 16, 2010

    Austin has joined the nationwide rebellion against naked body scanners by resisting plans on behalf of the TSA to install the devices at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport next year, while the TSA has still failed to respond to a FOIA request filed by former Congressman Bob Barr demanding information about whether the agency is keeping a list of “domestic extremists” who have opposed invasive airport security measures.

    “Austin’s Airport Advisory Commission approved a resolution on Tuesday night advising the city council to oppose airport body scanners and invasive body searches,” reports KXAN.com.

    “What we need to do is let them know it is not acceptable in Austin,” said Texans for Accountable Government’s Heather Fazio. We don’t have body scanners here. We don’t want body scanners here. We don’t need them here.”

    The TSA has signaled its intention to install the scanners at Austin, but the date has continually been put back, with the agency identifying next year or even as late as 2012 before the devices will be activated.

    The city joins a number of other lobby groups, state and local authorities around the country that have resolved to either block the body scanners or kick the TSA out of airports altogether, including New Jersey, where Republican state Senator Mike Doherty has vowed to introduce legislation that will ban both the scanners as well as invasive groping techniques.

    “It is with great sadness that I have come to recognize that one of our greatest threats has been presented by officials of the TSA who have begun to implement intrusive searches of law abiding Americans who are traveling within our borders.” “I am drafting new legislation that will make it perfectly clear that in New Jersey, our Constitutionally granted civil liberties are treasured and will be protected. I am calling upon my colleagues in the Legislature to step up and co-sponsor legislation that will protect the rights of citizens in New Jersey,” Doherty said.

    With the Christmas travel period now in full swing, there seems little doubt that more cases of TSA abuse will emerge over the next two weeks, unless the organization repeats its Thanksgiving ploy of restricting use of the scanners and reducing the invasiveness of pat downs.

    The fact that the TSA reversed its supposedly imperative security procedures in order to score political points and deflate the opt out day protest last month proves that the measures are nothing more than security theatre.

    The TSA has still refused to respond to a FOIA request by former Congressman Bob Barr’s Liberty Guard organization demanding to know why the procedures were reversed and also whether the TSA and Homeland Security is keeping lists of prominent media personalities who have spearheaded the campaign against TSA abuse, such as Matt Drudge and Alex Jones.

    Liberty Guard requested that any such documents be released under the Freedom of Information Act no more than 20 working days after TSA received their letter, which gives the TSA only about another week within which to release the documents or at least claim that their release would cause “foreseeable harm” to an interest protected by that exemption.

    No matter how the TSA responds, the timing couldn’t be worse for the agency, as the slowing news cycle and increasing numbers of Americans traveling will once again combine to re-focus attention on the issue – just as it did during the Thanksgiving period.

    TSA Lies Again Over Capture, Storage Of Body Scanner Images

    Spokesman says Baywatch star’s image will not leak because it is* “impossible”

    Steve Watson
    Thursday, Dec 16th, 2010

    The TSA has once again denied that the crisp naked images produced by x-ray imaging machines can be captured and stored, a claim already shown to be false by documents released under the Freedom of Information Act.

    In response to reports that former “Baywatch” star Donna D’Errico’s body scan image may be leaked into the public domain, a TSA spokesman told AOL News that it would be impossible:

    “The scanners that we use are not equipped to save the images,” Nico Melendez insisted.

    “There are similar scanners used by the U.S. Marshals’ office, but not the TSA.” Melendez added.

    This claim has been repeated several times by TSA officials, as well as by Homeland Security head Janet Napolitano.

    “The imaging technology that we use cannot store, export, print or transmit images.” Napolitano wrote in a propaganda piece last month.

    As we have previously detailed, the images that show in detail the naked genitals of men, women and children that have passed through the scanners can indeed be transmitted and printed.

    As reported by Declan McCullagh of CNET earlier this year, “The U.S. Marshals Service admitted this week that it had surreptitiously saved tens of thousands of images recorded with a millimeter wave system at the security checkpoint of a single Florida courthouse.”

    The proof comes in the form of a letter (PDF), obtained by The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), in which William Bordley, an associate general counsel with the Marshals Service, admits that “approximately 35,314 images…have been stored on the Brijot Gen2 machine” used in the Orlando, Fla. federal courthouse.

    EPIC says it has also obtained more than 100 images of electronically stripped individuals from the scanning devices used at federal courthouses. The disclosures come as part of a settlement of an EPIC Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the U.S. Marshals Service.

    Brijot, the manufacturer of the body scanning equipment in question, also admits that its machine can store up to 40,000 images and records.

    EPIC, has filed two further lawsuits against the Department of Homeland Security over the scanners, claiming that the DHS has refused to release at least 2,000 images it has stored from scanners currently in use in U.S. airports.

    EPIC’s lawsuit argues that the body scanners violate the Fourth Amendment, which prohibits “unreasonable” searches, as well as the Privacy Act, the Administrative Procedure Act, and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, referencing religious laws about modesty.

    The group points to a further document (PDF) it has obtained from DHS showing that the machines used by the department’s TSA are not only able to record and store naked body images, but that they are mandated to do so.

    The TSA has admitted that this is the case, but claims that it is for training and testing purposes only, maintaining that the body scanners used at airports cannot “store, print or transmit images”.

    This was confirmed in a letter sent to Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security,* at approximately the same time the government initially claimed the machines are safe and cannot save images. In fact, this ability is a government requirement.

    “TSA requires AIT machines to have the capability to retain and export imagines (sic) only for testing, training, and evaluation purposes,” states a Homeland Security letter dated February 24, 2010 and signed by Gale D. Rossides, Acting Administrator.

    The machines indeed store and transmit images. According to Rossides, however, this ability is limited to engineers, training contractors, and “Z” level users. “Z” level users are described as select lab personnel from the TSA’s Office of Security Technology.

    The images are apparently also sent to the TSA’s Threat Mitigation Lab.

    “In complying with our Freedom of Information Act request, the Marshals Service has helped the public more fully understand the capabilities of these devices,” EPIC President Marc Rotenberg has said in a statement. “But the DHS continues to conceal the truth from American air travelers who could be subject to similar intrusive recorded searches in U.S. airports.”

    As if it was needed, further evidence also points to the fact that the images are actively being transmitted and printed in airports.

    Furthermore, if there is no capability for the devices to save, distribute and print images, then how on earth have news organizations obtained print outs of such images like the one above?

    Donna D’Errico says that she was singled out by a TSA agent for a body scan at Los Angeles International Airport earlier this month.

    When she asked why, she says the official told her, “Because you caught my eye and they [pointing to the other passengers] didn’t.”

    Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com

    Her story is similar to scores of others from women who say they were singled out for enhanced screening based on their figures.

    Eliana Sutherland recently flew from Orlando International Airport and told Local 6 News she felt the two male TSA workers were staring at her breasts and chose her for additional screening because of their size.

    “It was pretty obvious. One of the guys that was staring me up and down was the one who pulled me over,” said Sutherland. “Not a comfortable feeling.”

    Another disturbing incident, which is subject to an ongoing lawsuit, involved a 21-year-old college student from Amarillo Texas. The woman was passing through security at Corpus Christi airport on May 29 2008 when she was subjected to “extended search procedures” by the TSA.

    “As the TSA agent was frisking plaintiff, the agent pulled the plaintiff’s blouse completely down, exposing plaintiffs’ breasts to everyone in the area,” the lawsuit said. “As would be expected, plaintiff was extremely embarrassed and humiliated.”

    TSA workers continued to laugh and joke about the incident “for an extended period of time,” leaving the woman distraught and needing to be consoled. After the woman re-entered the boarding area, TSA workers continued to humiliate her over the incident.

    “One male TSA employee expressed to the plaintiff that he wished he would have been there when she came through the first time and that ‘he would just have to watch the video,’” the suit said.

    The woman filed an administrative claim against the TSA but was forced to launch a full lawsuit after the agency failed to respond.

    The incident bears similarities to a 2002 case involving a pregnant woman who had her breasts exposed by TSA agents in public. Her husband was thrown in the airport jail for complaining about the treatment of his wife.

    Other cases involve TSA agents making comments about the size of private parts, subjecting those involved to trauma and humiliation.

    Most recently, we reported on an ordeal suffered by a cancer survivor at the hands of the TSA, who was subjected to an invasive breast groping in full public view by the TSA, despite making it known that she had been forced to undergo a mastectomy last year.

    When the woman’s son asked a TSA supervisor why he had also not also been subjected to a body search, the TSA agent told the boy “well you don’t have boobs”.

    Despite these and thousands of other complaints against the TSA, and the fact that police are being called to look out for over enthusiastic TSA gropers, the agency still maintains that no fondling, groping or squeezing is taking place at airports at all.

    TSA Choir Will Sing While You Are Groped

    Dec 16, 2010

    The LAX TSA Choir, a group of 17 singers and musicians, all of them employees of the TSA, have been surprising passengers with performances of holiday music and other tunes in the midst of one of the nation’s busiest airports, reports USA Today .

    The choir, according to*USA*Today,*worked through an hour-long set list that included such holiday biggies, and I kid you not, as:*America the Beautiful, God Bless the U.S.A. and Battle Hymn of the Republic.

    How about the TSA having a Christmas song of its own:

    Our job is to grope
    Women, kids even the Pope

    We are*pulling *and prodding to see how much the sheeple will take
    None of this is more than*security fake

    Why when a real underwear bomber wanted to board a plane
    We escorted him without a pat or even a check of his thang

    Yes, we are the frontline of the expanding authoritarian state
    Pulling and prodding to see how much the sheeple will take

    Naomi Wolf, Rockwell, Jones and Rivero*will scream we have a devious plan
    But you have to understand we are what the brothers call The Man

    So take radiation or take*the grope
    There really is no hope

    We got all the entrances and exits blocked
    And the chains we are slowly putting on you will soon be locked

    You see, the sheeple don’t study history and they can’t think for themselves
    So they just confuse us with Santa’s little elves

    10,000 Child Porn Images Found On Ex-TSA Worker’s Computer

    Epidemic of TSA screeners connected with rape, pedophilia and sexual perversion explodes

    Paul Joseph Watson
    Prison Planet.com
    Friday, December 17, 2010

    Yet another TSA worker has been exposed as a pedophile to add the the epidemic of cases that prove those who are inclined to work in jobs that allow them to sexually molest children via invasive groping measures at airports are the most unprofessional, perverted and criminally-minded individuals imaginable.

    “A former TSA employee was arraigned on child pornography charges, Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone said Thursday,” reports WCVB-TV Boston.

    “On Oct. 15, a search warrant was executed at Cheever’s home, where the suspected computer was registered, Leone said. As a result of the search warrant, multiple computers, hard drives and multiple pieces of external digital media were confiscated from the home, Leone said. An onsite preview of the computer and two external hard drives confirmed that Cheever was storing more than 10,000 child porn videos and images, Leone said.”

    Cheever’s penchant for looking at naked pictures of children was undoubtedly a perk of the job when he applied to become a TSA screener, given the fact that body scanner images show intricate details of a person’s genitalia.

    This is another alarming reminder of the fact that a statistically inflated number of people who are attracted to become TSA workers are criminally perverted.

    As we previously highlighted, there is an epidemic of cases where TSA workers have been identified as rapists, sexual predators and pedophiles.

    In November, “A TSA employee based at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport tried to kill himself after allegedly abducting a woman, sexually assaulting her then giving her a suicide note to deliver,” reported the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    49-year-old Randall Scott King kidnapped the woman after she had accompanied him from the airport.

    The story coincided with another incident highlighting once again how TSA workers transfer their predatory sexual behavior from their private lives to their jobs. A young woman with ample breasts was targeted by TSA workers for extra screening after they ogled her body.

    “It was pretty obvious. One of the guys that was staring me up and down was the one who pulled me over,” said Eliana Sutherland. “Not a comfortable feeling.”

    Working in airport security seems to attract perverts, rapists and pedophiles because it gives them legitimate cover through which to exercise their deviancy. Indeed, a prank caller who pretended to be a sex pervert phoned the TSA about applying for a job and was treated seriously by a TSA staffer.

    Back in March it emerged that TSA worker Sean Shanahan, who was employed at Boston Logan International Airport to pat down passengers, had been charged with multiple child sex crimes targeting an underage girl.

    Similarly, 57-year-old Charles Henry Bennett, who worked at Orlando International Airport as a TSA screener, was arrested earlier this month in connection with the molestation of a 6-year-old girl whom he planned to make his “sex slave”.

    Stories about TSA officials and other airport security workers abusing the use of naked body scanners have become commonplace.

    44-year-old Rolando Negrin beat his supervisor with a police baton after he had cracked jokes about Negrin’s small manhood when he walked through a naked scanner as part of a training exercise at Miami International Airport. The story underscored the fact that authorities had been lying all along about the claim that the scanners did not show sensitive details of genitalia.

    Indian film star Shahrukh Khan told a BBC talk show that naked images of his body from the scanner were printed out and circulated by airport staff at Heathrow in London. Heathrow denied the claim but Khan himself never retracted the story, and had no apparent motive for making it up.

    Heathrow authorities were unable to deny a later example of the scanners being abused, when it emerged that a Heathrow worker had perved over a naked image of a female colleague after she passed through one of the devices, before commenting, “I love those gigantic tits”.

    Jo Margetson, 29, reported John Laker, 25, to the police after she had entered the x-ray machine by mistake and Laker took the image before making lewd comments.

    Airport security staff workers are among the least trustworthy people to operate these machines. Such individuals are routinely caught abusing their authority for their own ego trip or sexual perversion.

    TSA workers have also been caught in other abuses of power, including stealing laptop computers, sabotaging sensitive screening databases, and joking about planting drugs on travelers.

    The naked scanners are being manned by people like a shortly after he got off duty at LAX earlier this year.

    The TSA is a complete joke – while perverts and pedophiles are busy groping your children and ogling over their naked body scanner image, people with loaded guns are breezing through security while others are hiding in the wheels of Boeing 737′s.

    The fact that the TSA temporarily mothballed their body scanners and invasive groping techniques in a political points scoring ploy designed to deflate the success of the national opt out day protest also underscores that their procedures are nothing more than security theatre, run by an army of ignorant morons following orders who are accompanied by a gaggle of hardcore sex perverts, pedophiles, and criminal predators.

    States and local authorities across the country need to follow the example of New Jersey and introduce legislation immediately to kick the TSA out of airports and replace them with private security who are professionally trained and who are actually interested in stopping terrorists rather than exercising their sexual deviancy through groping children and ogling naked body scanner images.

    Gaping Holes in Airline Security: Loaded Gun Slips Past TSA Screeners

    Secret Tests At LAX, O’Hare, Newark Show TSA Screeners Missed Guns, Bombs

    ABC News
    Friday, December 17, 2010

    [IMG]http://c.gigcount.com/wildfire/IMP/CXNID=2000002.0NXC/bT*xJmx*PTEyOTI2MDE3NTUwNzYmcHQ9MTI5MjYwMTc1Njg3OC ZwPTEyNTg*MTEmZD1BQkNOZXdzX1NGUF9Mb2NrZV9FbWJlZCZn/PTImbz*1MjEwMzE2ZWEzMTk*MmYyOWI2M2ViODhhN2MzOTczMS ZvZj*w.gif[/IMG]

    Last fall, as he had done hundreds of times, Iranian-American businessman Farid Seif passed through security at a Houston airport and boarded an international flight.

    He didn’t realize he had forgotten to remove the loaded snub nose “baby” Glock pistol from his computer bag. But TSA officers never noticed as his bag glided along the belt and was x-rayed. When he got to his hotel after the three-hour flight, he was shocked to discover the gun traveled unnoticed from Houston.

    “It’s just impossible to miss it, you know. I mean, this is not a small gun,” Seif told ABC News. “How can you miss it? You cannot miss it.”

    But the TSA did miss it, and despite what most people believe about the painstaking effort to screen airline passengers and their luggage before they enter the terminal, it was not that unusual.

    Critics Slam Metro Bag Searches As More Useless “Security Theater

    Kytja Weir
    Washington Examiner
    Friday, December 17, 2010

    Metro plans to begin random searches of its riders’ bags in the coming days, the transit agency said Thursday, revisiting a plan first announced two years ago.

    David Alpert, who serves on the agency’s Riders’ Advisory Council and writes the Greater Greater Washington blog, called it “security theater” that wastes money without stopping terrorists. He said such resources could be better spent having more officers and dogs patrol the system.

    “Riders are already frustrated with Metro right now,” Alpert said. “Doing something that’s just going to frustrate riders is absolutely the wrong approach.”

    Metro announced two years ago that it would conduct searches but never did any after riders and their advocates complained.

    TSA Too Busy Groping, Perving, Playing God To Notice Guns And Bombs

    Man walks onto plane with loaded handgun while other stopped over harmless liquids

    Steve Watson
    Friday, Dec 17th, 2010

    TSA agents at a Houston airport failed to stop an Iranian-American with a loaded handgun passing through security and boarding a plane, yet they did stop a woman directly behind him who was carrying liquids in her hand luggage.

    Businessman Farid Seif relates his story to ABC News, noting that he only realised he had forgotten to remove a loaded snub nose “baby” Glock pistol from his bag after he had landed at his international destination and unpacked in his hotel room.

    “It’s just impossible to miss it, you know. I mean, this is not a small gun,” Seif told ABC News. “How can you miss it? You cannot miss it.”

    “They were very embarrassed, you know,” Seif said. “And — and they should be, you know. It’s — we’re talking about total failure.”

    Seif also told ABC that while his pistol “sailed past” the screener, a woman behind him was stopped for having liquids in her bag.

    The incident underscores how the enhanced and invasive TSA security procedures are pure theatre and do nothing to make anyone safer.

    While the agents are busy singling out the elderly and the disabled for enhanced screening, groping women’s breasts, telling people they are “God”, and locking travelers in glass boxes over liquids such as breast milk, other passengers are being allowed to waltz through security with loaded guns and even explosive material.

    As the ABC report highlights, the Department of Homeland Security has classified the results of random, covert “red team tests,” where undercover agents try to see what they can get past airport security, because the results have been so shockingly bad for the past nine years:

    According to one report, undercover TSA agents testing security at a Newark airport terminal on one day in 2006 found that TSA screeners failed to detect concealed bombs and guns 20 out of 22 times. A 2007 government audit leaked to USA Today revealed that undercover agents were successful slipping simulated explosives and bomb parts through Los Angeles’s LAX airport in 50 out of 70 attempts, and at Chicago’s O’Hare airport agents made 75 attempts and succeeded in getting through undetected 45 times.
    Last month, TSA head John Pistole claimed that the recent enhancement of security procedures has come in light of such past failures.

    “… unfortunately, [undercover testers] have been very successful over the years. And one of the findings is that we have not been thorough enough. And the concern obviously is, if that’s an Abdulmutallab — a Christmas Day bomber — who is doing it rather than an undercover agent, then that can have catastrophic results.” Pistole told George Stephanopoulos during an interview on Good Morning America.

    Yet, as in depth research has shown, the introduction of naked body scanning x-ray machines will do little to curb such failures, because the machines cannot detect explosive material effectively.

    The machines would not have prevented the Christmas Day bomber from boarding Flight 253, according to their designers, and other security experts who have dismissed the devices as “useless”.

    The TSA has still failed to respond to a FOIA request filed by former Congressman Bob Barr demanding information on the TSA’s recent decision to curtail enhanced pat-downs and mothball body scanners so as to avoid negative publicity during the “National Opt Out day” protest last month.

    If internal TSA documents prove this was the case,it will serve as concrete proof that Big Sis’s security talk is nothing more than hot air. If the scanners were so imperative to keep us safe from terrorists then why would the TSA turn them off, as well as reining in pat downs, in a vain effort to score political points?

    So rest assured, while grandma is being molested by the TSA this christmas, it is a distinct possibility that there will be someone floating past and onto your plane armed to the teeth.

    TSA Admits Lying About Naked Boy Controversy

    Federal agency caught in yet another act of deception after first claiming shirtless 5-year-old had set off metal detector

    Paul Joseph Watson
    Prison Planet.com
    Monday, December 20, 2010

    The TSA has been caught in yet another act of public deception after the agency was forced to admit that it lied when it initially claimed a 5-year-old boy was strip-searched at Salt Lake City International Airport last month because he had set off a metal detector.

    The video of a disgruntled father removing his young son’s shirt so TSA agents could pat down the boy arrived at the height of the outrage against Big Sis last month and prompted widespread condemnation of ludicrous airport security measures. One of the media personalities who spearheaded the TSA revolt, Matt Drudge, ran the story at the top of his website for nearly two days.

    The TSA tried to placate the fury many Americans felt when watching the clip by claiming that the boy had set off a metal detector and therefore had to be subjected to advanced screening. Even after the boy’s shirt was removed, he was still subjected to a pat down around his genital area.

    However, Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who will soon take charge of the House subcommittee overseeing the TSA, forced the agency to back down and concede that the TSA’s original statement was a total fabrication.

    “I said, ‘You guys knew that at the beginning. You lied at the beginning,’” Chaffetz told the Salt Lake Tribune.

    “New information was brought to light that indicated the initial report was incorrect,” the TSA said, admitting that the boy was patted down not because he set off a metal detector but due to “bulky clothing”.

    However, the video clearly shows that the only item of clothing the boy is wearing is a pullover sweatshirt – he is not wearing a bulky coat or anything of that nature. So in effect, the TSA has attempted to cover up a lie with yet another lie, in its farcical efforts to justify groping naked 5-year-old boys in the name of security.

    As we have documented, the TSA has proven itself to be completely untrustworthy and deceitful, having lied about almost every issue related to airport security since the very outset.

    - Immediately after naked body scanners were introduced, TSA lied in claiming that scanner images did not show intricate details of genitalia, a claim disproved by images taken from the TSA’s own website which clearly show the size and detail of a man’s penis, as well as several incidents where airport security workers have abused the scanners to ogle naked pictures of their colleagues and go on to describe details of their genitalia.

    - Janet Napolitano herself brazenly lied when she claimed that Johns Hopkins University had studied naked body scanners and declared them to be completely safe. In reality, Dr Michael Love, who runs an X-ray lab at the department of biophysics and biophysical chemistry at the Johns Hopkins school of medicine stated, “statistically someone is going to get skin cancer from these X-rays,” adding, “…we have a situation at the airports where people are so eager to fly that they will risk their lives in this manner.”

    - TSA has consistently lied in claiming that naked body scanner images cannot be stored, a claim disproved by a Homeland Security letter which specifically states that the machines “have the capability to retain and export images”.

    - TSA continues to lie about the fact that it temporarily curtailed security measures as a political ploy to deflate the national opt out day protest, despite verified reports from all over the country confirming that body scanner machines were roped off and aggressive pat downs were dispensed with.

    - TSA has been caught in numerous other lies, all of which are documented here.

    Given the plethora of examples of TSA deceit, and the agency’s ceaseless habit of lying to cover up its own malfeasance, state and local authorities across the country need to unite and follow New Jersey’s example by kicking the bums out for good, eliminating the TSA not only from airports, but as a federal agency altogether.

    SACRAMENTO, CA – An airline pilot is being disciplined by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for posting video on YouTube pointing out what he believes are serious flaws in airport security.

    Three days after he posted a series of six video clips recorded with a cell phone camera at San Francisco International Airport, four federal air marshals and two sheriff’s deputies arrived at his house to confiscate his federally-issued firearm. The pilot recorded that event as well and provided all the video to News10.

    The YouTube videos, posted Nov. 28, show what the pilot calls the irony of flight crews being forced to go through TSA screening while ground crew who service the aircraft are able to access secure areas simply by swiping a card.

    “As you can see, airport security is kind of a farce. It’s only smoke and mirrors so you people believe there is actually something going on here,” the pilot narrates.
