Drudge Stirs National Debate On TSA Abuse


Recommended Posts

The populist Drudge Report website has stirred a national debate on TSA abuse of passengers through dangerous naked body scanners and invasive groping measures, culminating in an onslaught of resistance from numerous prominent travel and pilots associations, and leading to the organization of a national opt out day on November 24.


While the corporate media characterizes opposition to airport oppression as a disgruntled minority, Drudge has led the charge in exemplifying that the backlash is in reality part of a rapidly accelerating national outrage that now includes no less than five major travel bodies as well as a flight attendants union.


In addition, individual cases of oppression at the hands of TSA thugs are now pouring in, with Drudge ensuring they receive the attention they deserve by making airport outrage a top story on his website for days on end.


With an estimated 2 million-plus individual visitors a day and a gargantuan 500 million page views a month, it’s no surprise that Drudge’s extensive coverage of the issue has prompted a tidal wave of unions, travel associations, pilots and individuals to come out in opposition to TSA molestation.


With the Electronic Privacy Information Center already engaged in a lawsuit challenging the legality of naked body scanners, the ACLU has also opened a web page inviting members of the public to submit reports of TSA abuse in the interests of future action.


A citizens group has also organized a national body scanner opt out day set for November 24 aimed at sending a message to lawmakers demanding change.


What was a stirring undercurrent is now out in the open, with anger bubbling to the surface and prompting a massive national debate.


The rebellion is surging, not only because of the noted health dangers of body scanners, but because the TSA has proven time and time again that its justification in treating the American people with less respect than farmyard animals is completely fraudulent.


As we reported yesterday, while TSA goons grope your wife or daughter’s genitals in the name of security, they simultaneously hire rapists and give the green light for illegal aliens to work in secure airport locations and even clear them to fly planes. The TSA’s background checks for its own employees are non-existent in comparison with the harassment they dish out to innocent travelers on a daily basis.


[color:red]The goal of making the pat down procedure tantamount to sexual molestation is to force people into using dangerous radiative body scanners, devices colloquially known as “Dick Measurers†amongst TSA agents.[/color]


[color:red]The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg was told by a TSA agent directly that pat downs were made increasingly invasive not for any genuine security reason, but to make the experience so uncomfortable for the traveler that they would prefer to use the body scanner, despite the fact that scientists at Columbia University and the Inter-Agency Committee on Radiation Safety, along with other scientific bodies, have all warned that the devices increase the risk of developing cancer.



[color:red]I asked him if he was looking forward to conducting the full-on pat-downs. “Nobody’s going to do it,†he said, “once they find out that we’re going to do.â€Â


In other words, people, when faced with a choice, will inevitably choose the Dick-Measuring Device over molestation? “That’s what we’re hoping for. We’re trying to get everyone into the machine.†He called over a colleague. “Tell him what you call the back-scatter,†he said. “The Dick-Measuring Device,†I said. “That’s the truth,†the other officer responded.


So while the TSA hierarchy issues glib blanket denials that they are abusing the body scanners or the pat down procedure, the very TSA goons running the program admit that they are using the devices to ogle at people’s genitalia, including women and young children.[/color]


This in turn exposes yet another TSA lie – the claim that the scanners do not show intimate details of genitalia – which the organization has ludicrously maintained from the start despite images from the TSA’s own website showing that genitalia can clearly be seen.


This has also led to TSA workers and others who use the scanners sexually harassing their own colleagues, with male TSA agents abusing the devices to crack jokes about penis sizes and also ogle a female airport security worker’s breasts.


The TSA cannot ignore this backlash in the hope that it will simply go away. More and more people will refuse to travel to the United States if this situation is allowed to continue, creating a devastating economic impact on an industry that has already lost a third of its potential income since 9/11, with travelers specifically citing the behavior of TSA thugs as the main reason for them staying away.


The TSA’s excuse that the supposed terror threat provides them with carte blanche to subject travelers to any level of debasement holds no credibility whatsoever, and unless the agency reverses its patently illegal groping measures and discontinues use of body scanners on health and privacy grounds, the TSA itself could become the tarrget of legislation to abolish it altogether, which will undoubtedly become the next lobbying position embraced by the amplifying rebellion against TSA tyranny. :applause:

Drudge is one of the better news sites as far as breaking stories. If it wasn't for him Clinton could have gotten away with getting a Lewinsky in the Oval Office.


Remember tax clearances Mac? What a pain the ass they were any time you wanted to fly? Bet they are coming to the US real soon.

Reds to return



Security and intelligence agencies have been instructed by Centre for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES) director and Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwon to keep a close watch on activities of the red-shirts on Nov 13, 14 and 19, CRES deputy spokesman Songpol Wattanachai said on Friday.

[color:red]Nov 13 marks six months since rogue soldier Maj-Gen Khattiya Sawasdipol, also known as Seh Daeng, was shot by a sniper near Lumpini park on May 13, and Nov 19 six months since the May 19 military crackdown that cleared the red-shirts from Ratchaprasong intersection.[/color]

Pol Col Songpol said about 500 police would be deployed to ensure law and order. Although there were no reports of possible violence, authorities were required to be watchful, he added.


He said the CRES had been in touch with the organisers of these activities and advised them to stay lawful and not to prolong their rallies.


Supreme Commander Songkitti Jaggabatara said CRES will decide the appropriate time to lift the emergency decree from Bangkok and adjacent provinces.


"The situation right now is normal, but to revoke the emergency decree potentially dangerous incidents must first be dealt with and state agencies must be able to work normally," Gen Songkitti said.


"The CRES is the centre that coordinates with different ministries and departments and will determine when the emergency decree should be lifted."


When reporters asked about Democrat Party secretary-general Suthep Thaugsuban's return as deputy prime minister in charge of security affairs, the supreme commander said the army and the Defence Ministry had no problems with Mr Suthep.


On Deputy Prime Minister Sanan Kachornprasart's plan to meet with army officials to discuss his plan to bring about national reconciliation, he said the army had no enemies but the army also supported Maj-Gen Sanan's peace mission.

To help stir things up, if I want to know what is going to happen in US foreign policy the Jerusalem Post, Jewish Telegraph Agency and Haaretz online sites are good.


FT and Bloomberg are really good for business stuff.


Al Jazeera is a great site for general world news.


Other than that most bookmarks are for Asian porn.


What else does a guy need?

The only porn bookmarks that would be relevant to this thread (I would NEVER intentionally hijack a thread!) would probably be here:




For groups of much older men grabbing and groping the private areas of crying young girls until they submit try the Fetish section and look for the Attacker series. They are big on the stewardess theme.
