(Thomas Dishaw) Over the years the TSA has incrementally managed to intrude many areas of our lives. Inherited powers that were granted to us by The Constitution and Bill of Rights have now strategically been thrown out the window to “protect” you and your family from a fake war on terror. Unbeknownst to most the situation is much deeper than that. The TSA is here to intimidate you psychologically and physically , just examine their secret motto “Dominate. Intimidate. Control,” which is hidden at the TSA’s air martial training center, strategically kept off of badges and insignia, and away from most of the general public.
The rollout of the TSA was never planned for airports, it was much grander than that. The social controllers, paid off politicians, law makers, and a laundry list of Government agencies have all dreamed of turning the United States into one united police state, ultimately keeping the slaves under control while the political law breakers remain in power to acquire massive amounts of wealth as they sit in office.
Incrementally we are witnessing a total TSA takeover of America and unfortunately it is happening in many areas of our lives.
Unfortunately the most horrendous yet accepted actions by the general public is the unconstitutional treatment we receive when traveling through airports. The TSA goons, made up of petty criminals, pedophiles, and over zealous, power-hungry, megalomaniacs are quick to use their empty badges and unjust power to strip you of your basic rights. While the mainstream media is quick to highlight stories of stolen luggage, they fail to point out the unconstitutional violations of the TSA’s actions.
“Pre Check.” It has special lanes for background-checked travelers, who can keep their shoes, belt and jacket on, leave laptops and liquids in carry-on bags and walk through a metal detector rather than a full-body scan. The process, now at two airlines and nine airports, is much like how screenings worked before the Sept. 11 attacks.
To qualify, frequent fliers must meet undisclosed TSA criteria and get invited in by the airlines. There is also a backdoor in. Approved travelers who are in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s “Global Entry” program can transfer into Pre Check using their Global Entry number.
The Times fails to frame the true meaning and hypocrisy of Pre-check into the proper context. I think Anthony Gucciardi sums it up into a more believable piece by outlining the true intentions of this program. TSA: Give Us Your Fingerprints, Web History and You Can Keep Your Shoes On.
Now you can keep your shoes on when travelling through the Orwellian TSA ‘security’ checkpoints thanks to a new program that only requires one thing — the complete and utter erosion of your personal privacy.
Instead of cutting the various ‘anti-terrorist’ security functions employed by the TSA that have not caught a single terrorist despite expansive funding and highly invasive techniques that violate our fundamental rights, the TSA is now offering a new ‘quick pass’ system that allows enrolled US citizens through the first few security measures once they are approved by the agency for membership status within the program.
And in order to participate in the ‘Pre Check’ TSA program, you will need to allow them to reach down into the proverbial pants of your personal life as well. Under Pre Check, you are required to not only present your fingerprints to the TSA in person and pay a fee of $85, but the agency is also looking to gather all forms of your data as well — which reports state includes your web history and online data. With the help of a third-party organization, the TSA seeks to ‘pre-screen’ (think pre-crime) individuals based on their activity in order to determine if they are worthy of bypassing the most minimal of security checkpoints.
TSA On The Highways Of America
The TSA has now migrated from the airports to enforcing checkpoints and roadblocks. Sounds crazy, right? Well it is, and unfortunately it’s true. The Guardian reports the TSA’s mission is to turn the Unites States into a police state:
Napolitano expressed her desire to expand TSA jurisdiction over all forms of mass transit. In the past year, TSA’s snakelike VIPR (Visual Intermodal Prevention and Response) teams have been slithering into more and more bus and train stations – and even running checkpoints on highways – never in response to actual threats, but apparently more in an attempt to live up to the inspirational motto displayed at the TSA’s air marshal training center since the agency’s inception: “Dominate. Intimidate. Control.”
Anyone who rode the bus in Houston, Texas during the 2-10pm shift last Friday faced random bag checks and sweeps by both drug-sniffing dogs and bomb-sniffing dogs (the latter being only canines necessary if “preventing terrorism” were the actual intent of these raids), all courtesy of a joint effort between TSA VIPR nests and three different local and county-level police departments. The new Napolitano doctrine, then: “Show us your papers, show us everything you’ve got, justify yourself or you’re not allowed to go about your everyday business.”
Leading the way in the police state takeover is Tennessee, as Forbes reports:
In October Tennessee became the first state to conduct a statewide Department of Homeland Security Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) team operation which randomly inspected Tennessee truck drivers and cars.
Amtrak Stations And Commuter Trains
Earlier this year the New York Times reported the TSA’s takeover of Amtrak and commuter stations: T.S.A. Expands Duties Beyond Airport Security.
As hundreds of commuters emerged from Amtrak and commuter trains at Union Station on a recent morning, an armed squad of men and women dressed in bulletproof vests made their way through the crowds.
A team of Transportation Security Administration officers, known as a VIPR squad, at Washington’s Union Station last month.The squad was not with the Washington police department or Amtrak’s police force, but was one of the Transportation Security Administration’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response squads — VIPR teams for short — assigned to perform random security sweeps to prevent terrorist attacks at transportation hubs across the United States.
Unfortunately these kind of checkpoints are popping up all around the US:
And if you thought that the above examples were invasive, a recent New York Times article entitled Security Check Now Starts Long Before You Fly outlines a new and more intrusive screening strategy that is more exhaustive than a federal background check. The TSA will now be dramatically expanding their reach into the lives of every passenger, and scouring all of the following documents, according to the New York Times:
- private employment information
- vehicle registrations
- travel history
- property ownership records
- physical characteristics
- tax identification numbers
- past travel itineraries
- law enforcement information
- “intelligence” information
- passport numbers
- frequent flier information
- other “identifiers” linked to DHS databases
Regrettably most Americans have come to accept airport molestation with little or no resistance. I don’t know about you, but I wont accept these intrusions on my rights. As we can see the atrocities are continuing to pile up. They now want to access your tax ID numbers, property records, vehicle records and so on , all to just board an airplane? Enough is enough! What will it take for Americans to stand up and resist.
