Thread: TSA Groping Out Of Control

    The American People Are Taking A Stand Against Naked Body Scanners And TSA Groping

    The American Dream
    Nov 16, 2010

    An amazing thing is happening.* Americans from every walk of life and from across the political spectrum are standing up and are saying “NO” to naked body scanners and TSA groping.* It isn’t as if we are against airport security.* For decades, the vast majority of us have been more than happy to walk through metal detectors in order to get on an airplane.* But when the government wants to look at our naked bodies and fondle our wives and our children that is just too much.* The truth is that these new “enhanced pat-downs” would be considered sexual assaults if they were committed out on the street.* Horror stories have been pouring in from airports across the United States and the American people have had enough.

    We were all told that “the terrorists” hate us and want to attack us because of all of the liberties and freedoms that we enjoy.* So is stripping away all of our liberties and freedoms the answer?* The truth is that they don’t even do this kind of thing in North Korea.

    But we still think that we live in “the land of the free”.

    Fortunately, millions of Americans are starting to take a stand against this creeping fascism.

    Geoff Freeman, an executive vice president for the U.S. Travel Association, says that the feedback that his organization has been receiving about these new “security procedures” has been overwhelmingly negative….

    “We have received hundreds of e-mails and phone calls from travelers vowing to stop flying.”
    An unscientific survey conducted by Reuters asked readers the following question….

    “Are you less likely to fly because of stepped-up security procedures such as full-body scans and patdowns?”
    So what was the response?

    Over 96 percent of the respondents answered “YES”.* There are very few things that you can get 96 percent of the American people to agree on, but not being groped and ogled by airport security appears to be one of them.* The American people simply don’t want to put up with this kind of nonsense.

    In New Jersey, some lawmakers are saying that the new body scanners and “enhanced pat-downs” violate New Jersey privacy laws and possibly even the U.S. Constitution.* They plan to introduce a resolution asking Congress to review these new security procedures.

    Several pilots unions have come out and have strongly condemned the scanners and the pat-downs.* Even Sully Sullenberger has added his voice to those actively opposing these new “enhanced” security procedures.

    Sibel Edmonds summed up the outrage that so many Americans are feeling when she recently wrote the following….

    Every single day millions of us are being subjected to the shameful processes of being searched, screened and viewed naked, patted, groped, fondled, poked and stroked by badge-wearing strangers- police under a different name. Every single day. Millions of us, Americans. Being violated. Being degraded. You know exactly what I am talking about. I am taking about me, you, your mother, her brother, his brother’s wife and toddler son, their grandmothers. I am talking about the systematic degradation of our people. I am talking about being raped of our dignity, privacy, and decency. I am talking about a daily systematic rape we actually pay to be subjected to. I am talking about severe violations we elect people to bring upon us. Yes, I am talking about traveling, TSA police, and being reduced to naked and helpless subjects of government police practices.
    The overwhelming outrage has already forced the TSA to make a few limited concessions.* For example, they have announced that they have eliminated pat-downs for children under the age of 12 and they have announced that they will be developing “alternative procedures” for airline pilots.

    Unfortunately, the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, is making it abundantly clear that the rest of us are simply going to have to get used to body scanners and “enhanced” pat-downs.* However, for the first time Napolitano is leaving open the possibility that “adjustments” may be made to the new security procedures….

    “If there are adjustments we need to make to these procedures as we move forward, we have an open ear; we will listen.”
    This is a critical juncture.* It will be fascinating to see who backs down first.* If the American people give in to this kind of treatment, then what is next?

    The truth is that these airport scanners and “enhanced pat-downs” are completely dehumanizing.* Just check out what airport security officials are going to be doing to our wives and children from now on….

    Even members of the mainstream media are absolutely horrified about what is going on.* According to CNN employee Rosemary Fitzpatrick, a TSA official ran her hands around her breasts, over her stomach, buttocks and her inner thighs, and even touched her most private areas when she recently went through airport security. The following is how Fitzpatrick described how she felt about the experience to CNN….

    “As an experienced traveler for work who was in tears for most of the search process, I have never experienced a more traumatic and invasive travel event!”
    But if you want to get on a airplane in America today, this is the kind of thing you are going to have to go through.

    Many of the organizations that are supposed to be looking out for our civil liberties are totally dropping the ball on this thing, but fortunately many ordinary Americans are stepping up and are fighting back.

    One website, optoutday.com is calling for a “National Opt Out Day” on Wednesday, November 24th.* That is the busiest travel day of the year, and the idea is that airport security will be so swamped with opt outs that it will create a spectacle that will be absolutely unforgettable.* The following is a description of “National Opt Out Day” from the website….

    It’s the day ordinary citizens stand up for their rights, stand up for liberty, and protest the federal government’s desire to virtually strip us naked or submit to an “enhanced pat-down” that touches people’s breasts and genitals. You should never have to explain to your children, ‘Remember that no stranger can touch or see your private area, unless it’s a government employee, then it’s OK.’

    The goal of National Opt Out Day is to send a message to our lawmakers that we demand change. No naked body scanners, no government-approved groping. We have a right to privacy and buying a plane ticket should not mean that we’re guilty until proven innocent.
    So what do Obama administration officials think about National Opt Out Day?

    Well, a Reuters article noted that Janet Napolitano is far from pleased….

    “I really regret that,” Napolitano said of the proposed boycott. “Our evaluation of the intelligence and risk indicated that we needed to move more quickly into the non-metal environment, to get liquids and powders and gels off of aircraft.”
    Another grassroots website, wewontfly.com is encouraging Americans to quit flying altogether.* After all, if none of us fly, security officials will not have anyone to abuse.

    But even if you never fly, there are things that all of us can do.* We can all swamp our representatives in Congress and various government agencies with massive quantities of emails and letters.* We can all post articles and videos about these issues all over the Internet.

    If millions of us make enough noise they will be forced to listen.* We do not want airport security officials to use these new scanners to perform a “virtual strip search” on us and our families.* We do not want airport security officials to sexually molest our wives and our children.* We do not want to be treated like a bunch of dehumanized cattle.

    A flight attendant named Megan recently posted her airport security horror story on the We Won’t Fly Facebook page….

    I am a Flight Attendant for a major airline. I am currently out on disability because of a hip replacement. My husband (who is a pilot) and I flew out of Portland,Maine on November 9th, to New York for my 6 week follow up appointment. I had… my other hip replaced back in 2008 and totally know the entire procedure going through security. So I THOUGHT!

    My husband waited for me on the opposite side through security with all of my belongings while I endured the “new” pat down procedure. I was asked by the female TSA agent if I wanted a private screening and I said no because I had did not expect what was about to happen.

    The agent went up my right leg first and then met my vagina with full force….the same on the other leg with the same result. She then used both of her hands to feel my breasts and squeezing them. At this point I was in shock.

    When I came out of security my husband asked me. “What the hell was that?”. I have never felt so humiliated and violated. I have gone through the stages of being a sexual assault victim…Shock,Denial,Blame,Pain,Anger…I have yet to come with the Acceptance stage.

    The bottom line here: We are ALL American citizens and should not be forced to succumb to a government agency that is clearly violating our Fourth Amendment!
    This cannot be allowed to continue.* If we allow them to implement these procedures in our airports, pretty soon they will start popping up in subway stations, courthouses, sports stadiums and even at our workplaces.

    If the American people will put up with “virtual strip searches” and the public fondling of our wives and our children by airport security officials, then what limits will be left?* Is there anything that we would not put up with just to feel a little bit safer?

    What the TSA is trying to force on the American people is about as “un-American” as it gets.

    Our liberties and freedoms are very precious things.* Once they are lost, they will be incredibly difficult to get back.* Don’t sit silently by as America gets turned into a Big Brother police state.

    Government gropers at airports a ruse for body scanners coming to schools and malls

    Doug Hagmann
    Canada Free Press
    Nov 16, 2010

    Perhaps one of the most controversial topics today is the use of “naked” body scanners at airports by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), a branch of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). As this investigation found, it is indeed a matter deserving of such controversy and further investigative focus.

    Using the attempted Christmas Day 2009 bombing of Northwest Airlines Flight 253 by 23-year-old “underwear bomber” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab as “Exhibit A” for needing the ultra-intrusive “naked” body scanners, the TSA, under the direction of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, stepped up their purchases and deployment of the scanners to U.S. airports.

    On Christmas day 2009, a total of 40 full body scanners were present at only 19 airports in the U.S., but that would soon change. Immediately following the significantly odd incident aboard flight 253 where Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian national traveling from Amsterdam to Detroit reportedly attempted to light explosives hidden in his crotch, former DHS secretary Michael Chertoff and co-author of the U.S. Patriot Act took to the airwaves to lobby for the placement of the nuclear scanners at all airports. Chertoff, the head of the Chertoff Group, a private security consulting agency, served as former DHS secretary from 2005 to 2009.

    While working in that capacity in 2008, Secretary Chertoff authored a 38-page terror assessment warning of terrorists, posing as refugees for example, that would exploit our security deficiencies, including air travel. In hindsight, his warning seemed almost like a prediction that Christmas day.

    In the wake of his flurry of media appearances suggesting that full body scanners would likely have caught Abdulmutallab before he boarded flight 252, an article critical of Chertoff appeared in the January 1, 2010 edition of The Washington Post.* The former DHS secretary was criticized for “using his former government credentials to advocate for a product that benefits his clients.” It was disclosed that Chertoff’s security consulting agency included a client that manufactures the controversial scanners. That client is Rapiscan Systems, the leading provider of the scanners to the TSA and numerous other airports across the world.

    The units often referred to as “naked” or “nuclear” body scanners are more officially known as the Secure 1000 Single Pose scanners, made by Rapiscan. They also produce scanning units for air cargo inspection.

    Rapiscan is a wholly owned subsidiary of OSI Systems, Inc., a worldwide company based in California that develops and markets security and inspection systems.* It is one of a handful of such companies trying to corner the market on security hardware for the air transportation industry – a market estimated to be worth $300 billion in the United States alone.

    As indicted by the per-share price of the company’s stock, various divisions within OSI Systems, Inc., with the exception of Rapiscan were posting financial losses during the fiscal years 2007 through 2009. Month end stock prices of OSI Systems, Inc. (OSIS) fell from $27.35 per share in June 2007 to $20.85 in June 2009.

    OSI Systems, Inc. received a financial boost in September 2009 when it entered into a $173 million Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with the U.S. Transportation Security Administration. On October 1, 2009, the TSA purchased “multiple scanners” from Rapiscan at a cost of approximately $25 million under the terms of that contract.

    As shown by the following graph, demand for the scanners and the value of OSI stock did not take off until the attempted Christmas Day bombing. The demand sharply increased not only in the U.S., but worldwide. Rapisan suddenly grew as other countries contracted with Rapiscan for their scanning units. Most notably, perhaps, was a February 2010 deal between Rapiscan and the government of Nigeria, the very country of origin of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. Immediately before that deal, OSI Systems, Inc. announced a deal with Great Britain for scanners at Heathrow and Manchester International Airports.

    Thanks to the worldwide scanner market demand, the revenues of OSI Systems, Inc. grew nearly 25% during the first quarter of 2010 over the same period of 2009, to over $65 million as a direct result of major government investments.

    A second purchase for “multiple units” was announced on 29 April 2010 for $16 million. It is interesting to note that OSI Systems, Inc., announced at this time that the “naked” body scanners were bought with funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (stimulus) money, from a bill signed into law by President Barack Obama on 17 February 2009.

    On 22 September 2010, Rapiscan announced that it received orders from the TSA totaling $35 million for the 620DV Advanced Technology (AT) checkpoint X-ray baggage inspection system. The delivery orders were the first of that type placed by TSA under the terms of a five year Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract. The systems will be deployed by TSA at airport checkpoints in the United States, where they are to be used to screen passengers’ carry-on baggage.

    A look at OSI Systems, Inc., including its Rapiscan subsidiary identifies Deepak Chopra as the president and CEO. Chopra, individually and through his PAC, has been identified as a significant donor to the Democratic party, including contributions to the campaigns of Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton. It should come as no surprise, then, to learn that he accompanied President Obama and his royal entourage by invitation on his recent trip to India to promote further trade between the two countries. The trip was paid for by U.S. tax dollars.

    Investigation into the financials of Rapiscan and its parent company becomes even more interesting when it is learned that George Soros also holds a financial stock interest in the company. As of last June, Soros held about 12,000 shares of OSI stock.

    But if these scanners have been around for some time, what then, caused the most recent uproar regarding their use?

    Based on my investigative findings, I submit that there are two primary reasons for the growing public outcry over the “naked body scanners.”* Both have been expertly addressed by investigative blogger and talk show host Alex Jones via the Drudge Report, who has been warning the public about the scanners since they were first introduced.

    First, there has been heightened awareness of the possible radiological dangers posed to the TSA agents operating the scanners as well as to the passengers being screened. Although there have been numerous official assurances to the public that the scanners pose no health risks, several scientists and radiologists have concluded otherwise.

    Secondly, there are the images themselves. It is important for the public to understand that the images of scanned passengers shown to the public have passed through filters to “tone down” their graphic nature. In reality, the images that are visible to TSA officials are much more revealing. Having seen actual images of a full body scan on a TSA computer for the purpose of completing my investigation, I can tell you that the images are extremely graphic and leave very little to the imagination. To be sure, they do not resemble the images that are being shown to the public.

    Additionally and despite assurances to the contrary, there have been many documented abuses and misuses of the scanned images taken by TSA officials. Despite denials, images are stored in databases, ostensibly for “training” purposes. However, the number of images currently being maintained, along with the location of their storage (in some cases, outside of the TSA), indicate a purpose beyond any legitimate training program.

    What has yet to be publicly disclosed is, in my professional opinion, most alarming.

    Based on the instructions from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, a directive was reportedly issued by the TSA on 29 October, 2010. That directive instructs all TSA screening agents to perform “enhanced” pat down searches that involve the actual groping of women’s breasts and the genitalia of all passengers, including children.

    Upon learning of that directive, I conducted an interview with a trusted source working within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on 12 November, 2010. According to the information obtained during that interview, the enhanced pat down directive was not in response to any intelligence or actionable threat. Instead, it was issued as a result of the number of airline passengers “opting out” of the body scans. The reasoning was that passengers would be more likely to select the more passive and less invasive of the two options. In other words, the directive was meant to “convince” people to choose the (ostensibly) less personal and humiliating scrutiny of a full body scanner instead of being groped by a TSA agent.

    One might wonder why one option over the other would matter so much to the Department of Homeland Security. The answer might possibly be found in DHS documents described as “conceptual discussions” about trial deployments of the full body scanners to non-aviation public locations, such as sports stadiums, schools and malls. It appears that it is the intent of DHS to eventually install naked body scanners in these venues. But first, the public must be “conditioned” to accept their use at airports.

    Meanwhile, Big Brother will stop groping you, your wife and kiddies as soon as their full body scanners are planted in your local schools, stadiums and malls.

    ‘The Americans Make Us Do This’: Lessons in TSA Liberty from the ChiComs

    James Fallows
    The Atlantic
    Nov 16, 2010

    Two more views about “security,” from opposite sides of the world. First, a reader who travels frequently between China and the United States compares the airport-security experience in the two countries, in response to this post:

    <blockquote>>> As a former Minnesota local prosecutor… thanks for continuing to point out the absurdities and outright idiocy of security theater in the US. How anybody who knows anything about genuine public safety could agree that what’s happening in the US has much to do with genuine public safety is beyond me. But I’m also not writing about that.

    As a 12+ year resident of Shenzhen… I did want to confirm your experience with security in this place where dissidents are locked up: I’ve only had to take off my shoes once when passing through airport security and have never once had to open up (or turn on) my computer or any other electronic device.

    My favorite experience, though, was this: I tend to glower at the folks doing the bag searches before getting on the plane. I guess the agents sense the glowering because twice now, I’ve the Chinese security agents apologize to me for having to do this… one apologized and then whispered to me “Sorry. The Americans make us do this. It’s useless, I’m embarrassed.” On the other occasion, the agent verbally apologized and gave a quick head bow as he rezipped my bag.

    On the flight where the first Chinese agent apologized to me, when we arrived in the US and deplaned, we were met by two US agents and a German shepherd which sniffed us all as we passed by. One of the agents must have been 250 pounds and towered over the deplaning passengers, most of whom were Asian. The agents had their batons out, guns visible, and tasers.

    <div>What a contrast – an apology from Chinese security agents at the start of the trip and intimidation upon arriving in the US. Welcome to the land of the free and home of the brave. That the governing classes who so piously mouth platitudes about American exceptionalism are silent in the face of these atrocities to the liberties of innocents says more about America’s decline than any of the numerous economic comparisons.

    Second Woman Speaks Out Against TSA Screenings

    Abby Reed
    NewsWest 9
    Nov 16, 2010

    ODESSA – Last week, NewsWest 9 introduced you to one local woman who said the new TSA enhanced pat down screenings left her feeling violated. Her story, resonated with a local congressman who took action, and filed a complaint with Homeland Security. However, Ferguson isn’t the only one speaking out against the screenings.

    Priscilla Smith*of Odessa says she also felt violated by the pat down. However, she was patted down four months before the new pat down screenings were due to begin. Smith was getting ready to board a plane at the Midland Airport back in June. During security, she was pulled out of line by a female TSA agent who asked her to spread her legs for a screening.

    “Stand with my legs apart, in a skirt, and they took the wand and they went up my dress,” Smith said.

    Then, using the pat down method, the agent touched her chest and her bottom, in front of other passengers.

    “I felt*flush,*I mean, there’s not family members that touch you like that, and this is a stranger. You just feel very embarrassed,” Smith said.

    Fox News host to TSA: ‘Touch my junk’ and I’ll sue you

    NJ state senators call on Congress to end TSA’s new screening procedures

    Fox News host Shepard Smith on Monday reflected the frustration some travelers have been feeling about the TSA’s intrusive new airport screening procedures.

    During a Studio B segment, Smith declared he would launch a lawsuit against any TSA employee who attempted to “touch his junk” during a pat-down.

    Smith said: “The fact of the matter is, since the attacks of 9/11, as we have been screened and re-screened, and lighters have been taken, and shoes have been taken off, belts have been put over there, hats have come off, they have found a grand total of zero parts or pieces of any bomb anywhere domestically in the United States since the attacks of 9/11. Who’s the fool who tries to get on a plane with a bomb? You touch my junk, and I’m going to file a lawsuit against you.”

    Smith’s declaration comes as public concerns grow over allegations of misconduct by TSA workers carrying out pat-downs, as well as concerns about potential health hazards from the x-ray machines, especially for frequent fliers or children.

    TSA Targets Tyner In Effort To Chill Nationwide Backlash

    Refusnik was told to leave airport by TSA agents and is now being sued for following their orders

    Paul Joseph Watson
    Prison Planet.com
    Tuesday, November 16, 2010

    The TSA is intensifying its efforts to chill the nationwide backlash against invasive groping procedures by targeting the refusnik who became a cause célèbre when he told a TSA official this past weekend, “If you touch my junk, I’ll have you arrested.”

    John Tyner, the man who was kicked out of a San Diego Airport for refusing to submit to invasive TSA groping measures, is now the target of a TSA investigation and an $11,000 dollar lawsuit.

    According to Michael J. Aguilar, chief of the TSA office in San Diego, “Tyner is under investigation for leaving the security area without permission. That’s prohibited, among other reasons, to prevent potential terrorists from entering security, gaining information, and leaving,” reports Sign On San Diego.

    Naturally, while considering it a security threat to allow Americans to leave a checkpoint if they refuse to be sexually molested, the TSA isn’t nearly as concerned about the security risk posed by hiring illegal aliens to work in sensitive areas like cargo management and also giving them the green light to fly planes.

    In addition, TSA agents told Tyner to leave, before claiming that he would then be sued.

    “If you’re not comfortable with that, we can escort you back out and you don’t have to fly today,” Tyner was told. When he tried to leave, he was then accosted again, proving that the whole fiasco was a set up.

    The TSA is attempting to send a clear message by pursuing Tyner, that there is no real choice at airports, that you will either be fired with radiation and have officials see your naked body or you will be sexually molested by minimum wage thugs.

    This is designed to create a chilling effect so as to prevent million of other potential refusniks from following Tyner’s example and standing up to Big Sis.

    Meanwhile, a new CBS News poll shows that eight out of ten travelers believe the TSA’s new pat down procedures are an invasion of civil liberties as lawmakers prepare to grill the head of the federal agency on Capitol Hill today.

    Only one in ten voters said the measures were “necessary to guarantee security” and a further eight per cent said that the procedure “may go too far” but are acceptable so long as people are given the choice to opt out, which of course they are not. People who refuse the radiation firing body scanners are mandated to submit to the groping or are kicked out of the airport and threatened with a lawsuit, as we saw in the case of Tyner.

    Previous polls show resistance running even higher, with one Reuters survey putting the figure of those who oppose airport oppression at around 96 per cent.

    The TSA is now engaged in a full scale propaganda campaign and is brazenly lying to the American people in its defense of both the naked body scanners and the groping measures.

    As we highlighted yesterday, DHS chief Janet Napolitano’s USA Today editorial was replete with fallacies and deceptions, the most striking of which was her claim that Johns Hopkins University declared the scanners to be safe, when in fact Dr Michael Love, who runs an X-ray lab at the department of biophysics and biophysical chemistry at the Johns Hopkins, announced two days previously that the devices increased the risk of skin cancer.

    When Will People Stand Up and Say "Basta!"??

    OK, so when will people say "enough!" TSA subjecting toddlers and perhaps even infants to pat-downs and x-rays in the name of Freedom, Democracy and The American Way? What next - will some TSA worker taser a child for being uncooperative and unruly, i.e. suspicious behavior!!

    TSA Now Putting Hands Down Fliers’ Pants

    Big Sis turns up the heat: New super-enhanced pat-down more invasive

    Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
    Prison Planet.com
    Tuesday, November 16, 2010

    The TSA’s invasive new screening measures include officers literally putting their hands down people’s pants if they are wearing baggy clothing in a shocking new elevation of groping procedures that have stoked a nationwide revolt against privacy-busting airport security measures.

    Forget John Tyner’s “don’t touch my junk” experience at the hands of TSA goons in San Diego recently, another victim of Big Sis was told by TSA officials that it was now policy to go even further when dealing with people wearing loose pants or shorts.

    Going through airport security this past weekend, radio host Owen JJ Stone, known as “OhDoctah,” related how he was told that the rules had been changed and was offered a private screening. When he asked what the procedure entailed, the TSA agent responded, “I have to go in your waistband, I have to put my hand down your pants,” after which he did precisely that.

    Stone chose to conduct the search in public in the fear that the TSA worker would be even more aggressive in a private room.

    “If you’re wearing sweat pants or baggy clothing, I was wearing sweat pants they’re not baggy, they’re sweat pants,” said Stone, adding that the agent pulled out his waistband before patting his backside and his crotch.

    Even the TSA agent who put his hands down the man’s pants was embarrassed at what he had been told to do by his superiors, apologizing profusely to the victim.

    A 54-year-old Missouri City man experienced similar treatment when he was going through security at Fort Lauderdale Airport.

    Thomas Mollman was subject to a groping by a TSA officer that was tantamount to sexual molestation.

    “I was wearing shorts at the time – between the underwear, right on the skin, all the way around the back, all the way around my front, 360 degrees, touched inappropriately,” he said.

    “This was an assault. This was no different than a sexual assault,” said KTRK Legal Analyst Joel Androphy.

    The level of abuse appears to be getting worse on an almost daily basis. First TSA agents use the back of their hands, then they outright grope you with the front, and now they are being trained to put their hands down traveler’s pants. What’s next? Mandatory bodily probes?

    Even as the resistance to airport oppression grows, Big Sis and the TSA are responding by making the pat down procedures more invasive. Napolitano has figuratively said to the American people ‘let them eat cake’ as she slaps them in the face.

    Given the fact that the TSA’s own woeful background checks for their own employees allows rapists and pedophiles to get jobs as pat down agents, will you allow TSA workers to put their hands down the pants of your daughter or wife?

    UPDATE: Owen JJ Stone appeared on The Alex Jones Show today to discuss the incident and how the TSA goon ‘touched his junk’ by specifically patting his backside and testicles while his hand was inside Stone’s pants – video of the interview coming soon.

    Tea Party Nation founder: TSA scanners and body searches are abusive, appalling, and unconstitutional

    W. E. Messamore
    Independent Voter Network
    Nov 16, 2010

    In an exclusive interview with Judson Phillips, the founder of Tea Party Nation, which hosted the first National Tea Party convention in Nashville, I learned that the Tea Party movement is outraged at the TSA’s “nude” body scanners and search procedures.

    For a political movement that is often criticized as a cynical, right-wing ploy to lower taxes for the rich (or something like that), this key player in the Tea Party movement sounds refreshingly bold in his affirmation of civil liberties, putting Tea Party ideology right in line with the ACLUs and Michael Moores of the world when it comes to defending the civil liberties in the U.S. Constitution, except that it seems like Tea Party activists and sympathizers have actually been the most vocal critics of the TSA lately.

    If Phillips’ views are truly representative of the vast swath of activists and voters who identify themselves as Tea Party supporters, that’s a great sign for the Tea Party. It means their belief in strict constitutionalism and individual liberty isn’t selective or merely a front for some partisan agenda, but a firmly-held and consistently-applied set of principles. You can read Phillips’ words for yourself and decide:

    CAIVN: Thank you for the interview, Mr. Phillips. For our readers, would you mind briefly summarizing the national role that you’ve played in the Tea Party movement?

    Judson Phillips: I founded Tea Party Nation, one of the largest national tea party groups. We hosted the National Tea Party convention in Nashville in February [editor's note: this event featured Sarah Palin as the keynote speaker]. We have helped organize and connect tea party groups throughout the country.

    CAIVN: What do you think about the TSA’s “nude” body scanners?

    Judson Phillips: I am appalled by them. First is the radiation hazard which the regime does not even address. Second, I don’t want people staring at me without clothes or my wife or my teenaged daughter or my grade school sons. There are other and better ways to protect us.

    CAIVN: With your finger to the pulse of the Tea Party movement- what are the general attitudes you’re hearing from Tea Party activists towards these scanners?

    Judson Phillips: I think most people in the tea party feel at least as strongly as I do. When we posted something about this on Tea Party Nation, our online numbers went through the roof. We got a lot of responses.

    CAIVN: The TSA’s new procedures allow it to give passengers a much more aggressive pat down if they refuse to submit to a body scan. What do you think about these new procedures?

    Judson Phillips: Typical heavy handed government retaliation. You will submit or we will punish you.

    CAIVN: Again, what attitudes are you hearing from the Tea Party about these new procedures?

    Judson Phillips: Pretty much the same. Emotions range from appalled to angry.

    CAIVN: The Tea Party generally seems to support enforcing the U.S. Constitution as a document that limits Federal power. Would you say that the TSA’s searches violate the Fourth Amendment right of people to be secure “against unreasonable searches and seizures,” which it defines as those which occur without a warrant, without probable cause, or without “particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized?”

    Judson Phillips: I think it does. I think we can do a much better job of security without abusing law abiding citizens. I am reasonably certain a 2 year old child is not a terrorist and a 90 year old grandmother in a wheel chair probably isn’t either. Yet they are treated the same in the eyes of the government as some 25 year old man who just arrived from Yemen.

    CAIVN: There’s a National Opt Out Day planned for this November 24th (and another for May 7th) where air travelers are urged to opt out of the body scans en masse. Do you think we’ll see participation from the Tea Party in this protest?

    Judson Phillips: Possibly. I have told people on TPN to call the airlines and tell them they are not flying anymore as long as this nonsense is going on. If the airlines hear from enough people, they will put pressure on the government to act.

    CAIVN: The Tea Party generally seems focused on economic issues like the bailouts, stimulus package, and health care bill… is there room for civil liberties in the Tea Party platform, and will Tea Partiers end up standing for them?

    Judson Phillips: I think that is included in the idea of pushing back against an over reaching government.

    CAIVN: The TSA’s annual budget is $8 billion. Is that money being well spent?

    Judson Phillips: Is any government budget well spent?

    CAIVN: Do you think conservative bloggers and activists would be just as outraged right now if this were all happening under a Republican administration?

    Judson Phillips: I would hope so. We saw the first stirrings of the Tea Party movement in the last months of George Bush’s administration. I think if John McCain were in the White House and doing the same thing, I think you would see this movement out there.

    CAIVN: Conversely, do you think we’d see a lot more outrage from progressive groups right now if Bush were still president while these things were happening at airports?

    Judson Phillips: No question about that.

    CAIVN: Do you have any new events or plans for the Tea Party in the works?

    Judson Phillips: We are working on a couple of things that are not yet ready for public announcement.

    Infowars TSA Abuse Story Number 1 Worldwide

    Following a top headline on the Drudge Report, the world’s single largest alternative media outlet, the shocking news story TSA Now Putting Hands Down Fliers’ Pants by Paul Joseph Watson &#038; Alex Jones has gone completely viral, organically reaching #1 on Alexa.com’s “Hot Pages.” Alexa is one of the leading and most trusted indicators of web traffic numbers, and an assurance that this disgusting over-reach of government power will be discussed by millions across the globe.

    The controversy over TSA reaching into fliers’ pants is the latest development in an on-going backlash against the invasive measures by TSA. Radio host Owen JJ Stone, known as “OhDoctah,” appeared on the Alex Jones Show today to share his unnerving experience at an airport checkpoint. As Watson &#038; Jones write, Stone was subjected to what other passengers also now face– TSA agents “literally putting their hands down people’s pants if they are wearing baggy clothing.”

    Thanks again to our readers and supporters, as well as Drudge, for another big success in the Infowar. This is an important issue, and has currently reached the mainstream for discussion and debate.

    From Alexa’s Hot Pages listing, November 16, 2010, at about 2 PM CST:
