Last year I did a post about TSA because I was absolutely disgusted. I remember thinking to myself that surely someone would do something about this. Surely the American people would riot in the streets and call EPIC FAIL on TSA and the Department of Homeland Security. You can imagine my surprise when most people gathered in line like good little sheeple with the rest of the flock.
Why would a free person willfully subject himself to sexual assault, possible radiation poisoning, and a clear violation of due process by way of no probable cause before a search and seizure? *gulp* Because he is told he is safer giving up his liberty. He is told that if he gives up his protection by the Constitution he will not have to worry about terrorists.
If that is true I am the Tooth-Fairy and I fly on a magical unicorn made of gumdrops and cotton candy. I also shoot lightning bolts made of gold out of my behind that turn to coins as they rain down on the hungry masses of third-world countries.
In the news this week a trial has started for Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab. If you don’t know who he is let me help you out. Mutallab is known as the Underwear Bomber (aka Detroit Christmas Bomber.) On a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit, December 25, 2009, Mutallub set off a fire in his underwear 10 minutes before landing in Detroit. This is a terrible thing and the catalyst that set into motion TSA’s new security guidelines of radiate and grope.
What you might not know is Mutallub was on an international No-Fly List, although the State Department has changed their story on that as much as a potty training toddler changes his underwear. What you also may not know is Mutallub had no passport in Amsterdam. *scratches head* If he was marked to not fly and had no documentation to enter the United States of America, how did he get on the plane?
Well it just so happens there were other Americans on that plane that witnessed Mutallub at the ticket counter and they say he wasn’t alone. They say he was poorly dressed but was with a “Sharp Dressed Man”, that helped secure Mutallub’s entrance on the plane by saying he was from Sudan and “we” do this all the time. The person at the ticket counter sent Mutallub and his friend that spoke with an American accent to a manager. The next time he was seen by the two witnesses was on the plane, 10 minutes before landing, with flaming britches. In the months following the incident, our government denied this. Pretty much saying the couple,prominent lawyers, claims were unsubstantiated.
It has now been confirmed by the State Department that the FBI, in fact, allowed Mutallub on that plane. This would also explain how and why FBI agents were at the airport waiting when Northwest Flight 253 landed only a few minutes after calling in to air traffic control that there was a fire on-board, not a bomb but a fire.
What it doesn’t explain is why the “Sharp Dressed Man” called Mutallub Sudanese when he is clearly from Nigeria. What it doesn’t explain is why two men were arrested from the Detroit flight but only Mutallub was charged. Something many may not know is Mutallub is the son of a wealthy banker that supposedly reported his son up to six months prior to the incident.
All of this brings big questions to my mind and should yours as well. The Christmas Bomber incident is the reason for our new TSA security check points, but funny, they can’t detect the explosive Mutallub used. And not once in the near year since TSA implemented their naked scanning and proddy-pokey-patdowns have they caught one single instance of terrorism. What they have done is violate every single person that has gone through one of these checkpoints. They have taken power that wasn’t theirs to have.
And if you say the reason no terrorists have been caught is they are afraid of TSA, put your face real close to your monitor so I may smack the tar out of your stupid. Why would terrorists have to sneak on if the FBI lets them on without passports?
Some of the more current horror stories of TSA’s abuses on the American people in the name of “safety”:
Breast cancer patient, Lori Dorn was made to have a breast exam at New York’s JFK. She explained to the TSA agents that she had a medical card that explained the treatment she was under, but the agents refused her pleas and preformed a breast exam in view of other people.
In June a 95 year old woman in a wheel chair was forced to remove her adult diaper for a pat down. TSA claimed the security procedures are the same for everyone for the sake of national security. This is an outright lie. We know pilots and certain high-ranking officials in the government get to pass through security checkpoints. We also know that women wearing burkas get a pass because somehow their religious freedom supersedes every other Americans’ Constitutional rights protection.
A sassy blogger by the name of Amy Alkon had her own experience and wrote about it on her blog Advice Goddess. It’s rather graphic so if you are sensitive, don’t click that link. The TSA agent actually is trying to sue Amy for writing about her experience on her blog.
I am sure there are many more floating around, but I am just too disgusted to research them. What have we learned today children? That’s right, the government can’t provide safety by taking freedom. They only want that which is not theirs to have and until we get sick and tired of it…
So if you have any holiday flying in the states this year, get in line, be ready to be violated and when you get pissed, turn around, look at the scum that is putting his sausage fingers all over your sweet-stuff and say,”Please, sir, may I have another?” Because that is more convenient, don’t want to cause a scene or anything. Plus, resistance is futile, right?
Or remember that liberty is given by the Creator and no man has the right to it without just cause. Remember that the protection of your liberty was purchased with the blood of your countrymen. Will you allow their sacrifice to be for nothing because you were too weak to say no? I sure hope not.
Peace, love and God’s will.
