Ventura Decries “Fascist” America After Judge Tosses TSA Case



Quote
Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura said he would now refer to the country of his birth as the “Fascist States of America” after a judge dismissed his case challenging airport pat downs, adding that his only recourse now would be to run for President.

“Ventura made his comments outside the federal courthouse in St. Paul, where in January he sued to challenge the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) airport security procedures,” reports the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “The suit was thrown out because Congress set up the law so that all such challenges must be brought directly in Circuit Courts of Appeals, wrote U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson.”

“They said they don’t have jurisdiction,” Ventura told reporters. “Well my question is if the federal courts don’t have jurisdiction over a constitutional question then who the hell does?”

A further detail that Ventura revealed on the Alex Jones Show which has not been picked up by mainstream media reports is the fact that Ventura’s lawyer was told he could not even look at the ruling due to “national security” concerns.

Out of curiosity, what would you do if you had to put together a plan for airport security?

That was merely one incident I posted.. you want more? ATS is full of threads showing hundreds of such cases. If it was only one, I would say arrest the perverts that are okay with stripping a child in public and send em to Rikers.

What does stripping a kid, or popping an old persons colostomy bag and spilling it all over him, have to do with security? That is just plain intimidation of your own citizens. How many bombs have they found? The shoe bomber was on the plane and the passengers stopped him from lighting his shoe... the panty bomber was turned in by his father. Neither of them were Al Qaeda they were just wannabes...

You want my plan for security? Simple. Pre screening. In my line of work I have had to get cleared by the RCMP, Interpol and FBI and who knows how many small local police forces. But now I can get onto almost any military base with a simple check of my ID (no not the Top Secret places :P)

They already have the Nexus card for frequent travelers... you can actually use those on kiosks. It's the way to go for frequent travelers.

But NOTHING the TSA does is effective for security. A top 10 wanted MALE criminal slipped through Heathrow airport wearing a Muslim burqa and some eye shadow.

Its not about security, its about decency and our freedom. Just how much freedom are you willing to give up to be 'safe'? The X-ray scanner may be harmless for a one time use, but frequent flyers get an ACCUMULATIVE dose added to any other x-rays etc in a year  and workers exposed daily will soon feel the effects.

What we need is COMMON SENSE... why on earth would you need to strip a small child IN PUBLIC? If there was for some odd reason a need to do that other than being a pedophile, then at least do it in a private room. But seriously, groping little kids and frisking old ladies is hardly what I call security.

You now what works? PROFILING... like the Israeli's do. That and a National ID that requires maybe even a secret level type security check would give you security without the hassle. And anyone against a national ID card is just being silly as you are already on file with hundreds of agencies anyway.

Even the NAZI didn't treat German citizens like this... I know... my parents lived through that era.

Here is how effective the TSA jack booted goons are...

Loaded Gun Slips by TSA (Again)

Quote
It's been a while since we last heard about a loaded gun slipping past the watchful eyes and groping, toy-taking hands of TSA's diaper-busting agents and making it onto an airplane. We thought that maybe the agency had patched up that minor security breach issue, or something. Nope!

The LA Times reports that yet another loaded gun ended up on an airplane—this one a .38 caliber handgun that "tumbled from an unzipped compartment in a duffel bag" and was discovered by an airport ramp crew at LAX. Stupid, clumsy gun! The owner, who was en route to Portland, gave up his piece to the authorities after answering some questions. The bad news: He will now be defenseless against Portland's gutterpunks and fixie bicycle gangs. The good news: He avoided arrest and detention

Officials probe Houston-bound flight's dynamite incident

Quote
HOUSTON (AP) — U.S. and Argentine authorities were investigating how a stick of dynamite in a college student's checked luggage ended up on a Houston-bound flight, one of seven security incidents that disrupted U.S. flights in a day.

There was no indication terrorism was involved in any of the incidents, which caused two flights to be diverted, others to be delayed and passengers to be questioned.

The dynamite was discovered during a baggage search in an inspection station at Bush Intercontinental Airport shortly after Continental Airlines Flight 52 from Argentina landed early Friday.

Police: TSA Employee Brings Gun To Airport
Oct 12 2011


Quote
A Transportation Safety Administration employee was taken into custody Tuesday after he unlawfully tried to bring a handgun into the secured area of Miami International Airport, police said.

Just before noon, Eduardo Valdes, 29, a screener for TSA was reporting for duty on the sterile side of the airport. He was passing through an employee security checkpoint when another screener noticed a handgun in his bag.

According to the police report, Valdes admitted he knew it was illegal to bring a firearm into the airport and that he just "forgot." He also said the gun was not registered and he did not have a concealed weapons permit

Former Gov. Ventura Will No Longer Fly!

[youtube]TrBgjbQT1gg[/youtube]

And what about the x-rays? How about the frequent traveler getting lethal or sterilizing doses of x-rays? Even the department of Homeland security says its 'safe' only up to a maximum annual dose. So how about those who fly daily for business?

Here is my post from the other thread...

DHS's own source claiming otherwise

Since when have x-rays become 'safe'?  You go to any hospital and they give you lead shielding so you don't get over exposure, especially to your private parts to stop sterility...

So how about a frequent flyer that makes several business flights a week? Has anyone even considered the accumulated dosage of x-rays?

And they x-ray your head as well? And no one is concerned about all this radiation that for decades the medical profession has been taken pains to avoid over exposing people and staff?

I see people saying that the terrorists now rule.. NO it is our FEAR of POTENTIAL terrorists that has done this. When did America become a nation of WUSSIES?

Okay so I looked... and here it is  in TSA's own report



http://www.tsa.gov/assets/pdf/jh_apl_v2.pdf - [PDF][Archived]

So how do they determine if a frequent flyer has reached the maximum annual dosage to maintain safety? At this rate we won't need to worry about the terrorists bombs... because in the interest of safety everyone gets NUKED

No one concerned about this?

So in your opinion then its okay for them to pass on this collective 'dirt' to others? Besides if you take a minute and look at the OTHER TSA threads you will see that the groping is much more than just clothing now. THAT is why the outrage has begun.

Do you know what these things are?  Do you know what coliform organisms are?  Have you ever heard of E.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. This is making the news because they have way overstepped their authority on this. They are acting like goons. I would like to see the employment screening process for these people.



I too am sad when I see so many say this is no big deal, it's all hype. My parents lived in pre NAZI Germany... this is how it started over there too... the little searches, the removing one by one of little freedoms... then one day you way up to find that 'homeland security' (SS as it was called back then) can make you disappear

Restaurant puts TSA workers on “no-eat” list

Quote
Revenge, it is said, is a dish best served cold. In the case of certain TSA workers, it is a dish served not at all.

That’s the ruling from a restaurant near Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, which has made it a policy to deny service to agents of the Transportation Security Administration.

According to The Raw Story, the owner of the restaurant (which is unnamed in the article) is fed up with the way the TSA has treated its clientele. The owner himself is a frequent flier and, according to an employee who is quoted:
   "...has an amazing ability to remember faces. If he sees a TSA agent come in we turn our backs and completely ignore them, and tell them to leave. Their kind aren't welcomed in our establishment. A large majority of our customers—over 90 percent—agree with our stance and stand by our decision."

TSA Transportation Security Officers Denied Service At Mystery Seattle Restaurant? Not likely…


Quote
A travel blogger wrote a post earlier this week claiming that TSA Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) were being denied service from a restaurant near the Seattle-Tacoma airport. No restaurant name was given. The story has since gone viral and has even popped up on national TV. Being appalled by the story, we naturally looked into it and none of our workforce in the Seattle region had heard of or seen this mystery restaurant. Yesterday, the Seattle Weekly’s “The Daily Weekly” Blog posted a piece titled: “Sea-Tac "Anti-TSA Cafe" Story Sounds Like a Hoax.” The post raised some great questions on the legitimacy of the rumor, so we decided to share it on Twitter last night and now with our blog audience.

Ron Paul on abolishing TSA

[youtube]uzDiY8wKl9Q[/youtube]

Ron Paul: The TSA Is Not Above The Law

[youtube]aSuA5FVE1a0[/youtube]

Quote
07/04/2011

by Ron Paul

The press reports are horrifying: 95 year-old women humiliated; children molested; disabled people abused; men and women subjected to unwarranted groping and touching of their most private areas; involuntary radiation exposure. If the perpetrators were a gang of criminals, their headquarters would be raided by SWAT teams and armed federal agents. Unfortunately, in this case the perpetrators are armed federal agents. This is the sorry situation ten years after the creation of the Transportation Security Administration.

The requirement that Americans be forced to undergo this appalling treatment simply for the "privilege" of traveling in their own country reveals much about how the federal government feels about our liberties. The unfortunate fact that we put up with this does not speak well for our willingness to stand up to an abusive government.

Many Americans continue to fool themselves into accepting TSA abuse by saying "I don't mind giving up my freedoms for security." In fact, they are giving up their liberties and not receiving security in return. Last week, for example, just days after an elderly cancer victim was forced to submit to a cruel and pointless TSA search, including removal of an adult diaper, a Nigerian immigrant somehow managed stroll through TSA security checks and board a flight from New York to LA -- with a stolen, expired boarding pass and an out-of-date student ID as his sole identification! He was detained and questioned, only to be released to do it again 5 days later! We should not be surprised to find government ineptitude and indifference at the TSA.

At the time the TSA was being created I strongly opposed federalization of airline security. As I wrote in an article back in 2001:

"Congress should be privatizing rather than nationalizing airport security. The free market can and does produce excellent security in many industries. Many security-intensive industries do an outstanding job of maintaining safety without depending on federal agencies. Nuclear power plants, chemical plants, oil refineries, and armored money transport companies all employ private security forces that operate very effectively. No government agency will ever care about the bottom-line security and profitability of the airlines more than the airlines themselves. Airlines cannot make money if travelers and flight crews are afraid to fly, and in a free market they would drastically change security measures to prevent future tragedies. In the current regulatory environment, however, the airlines prefer to relinquish all responsibility for security to the government, so that they cannot be held accountable for lapses in the future."

What we need is real privatization of security, but not phony privatization with the same TSA screeners in private security firm uniforms still operating under the "guidance" of the federal government. Real security will be achieved when the airlines are once again in charge of protecting their property and their passengers.

In the meantime, this week I am introducing the American Traveler Dignity Act, which establishes that airport security screeners are not immune from any US law regarding physical contact with another person, making images of another person, or causing physical harm through the use of radiation-emitting machinery on another person. It means they are not above laws the rest of us must obey. As we continue to see more and more outrageous stories of TSA abuses and failures, I hope that my colleagues in the House will listen to their constituents and join with me to support this legislation.

We know how air travel has changed in the era of the Transportation Security Administration. We know about terrorist groups' not-quite-rational obsession with targeting airplanes -- not rational because they could create more fear, more easily, by blowing up shopping malls or recreating the (genuinely terrifying) Beltway Sniper episode. And we know about the public's not-quite-rational fearfulness about airplane crashes. A hundred people a day die on the roads, and we hardly blink. A hundred people blown up in the sky has a completely different effect.

What I didn't know until now was that the TSA is extending its protective scrutiny to the nation's roadways. Take a look at the clip below, which appears to be a bona fide news report this week from Tennessee.

Surprise! TSA Is Searching Your Car, Subway, Ferry, Bus, AND Plane
Jun. 20, 2011



Quote
Think you could avoid the TSA's body scanners and pat-downs by taking Amtrak? Think again. Even your daily commute isn't safe from TSA screenings. And because the TSA is working with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Border Patrol, you may have your immigration status examined along with your "junk".

As part of the TSA's request for FY 2012 funding, TSA Administrator John Pistole told Congress last week that the TSA conducts 8,000 unannounced security screenings every year. These screenings, conducted with local law enforcement agencies as well as immigration, can be as simple as checking out cargo at a busy seaport. But more and more, they seem to involve giving airport-style pat-downs and screenings of unsuspecting passengers at bus terminals, ferries, and even subways.

These surprise visits are part of the TSA's VIPR program: Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response. The VIPR program first started doing searches in 2007, and has grown since then. Currently, the TSA only has 25 VIPR teams doing these impromptu searches: in 2012, it wants to get 12 more.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Hoping to keep terrorists and others off-guard Transportation Security Administration conducted what it calls  a random "Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response Operation" on Thursday morning at the West Palm Beach Tri-Rail station.

TSA spokesperson Sari Koshetz said that response, known as VIPR, is a highly-visible operation to help detect and deter any suspicious or dangerous activity in various modes of transportation.

VIPR Teams Enhance Security at Major Local Transportation Facilities

Quote
Following the Madrid train bombings, TSA stepped up its efforts to enhance security on rail and mass transit systems nationwide by creating and deploying Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) teams. Comprised of federal air marshals, surface transportation security inspectors, transportation security officers, behavior detection officers and explosives detection canine teams, VIPR teams over the past two years have augmented security at key transportation facilities in urban areas around the country, including New York City, Buffalo and Syracuse, N.Y., Los Angeles, Boston and Providence, R.I.

I am a businessman (as many of you may know).  I travel quite a bit.  Over the past 3 months I have spent a total of about 7 weeks in Dallas.  I never stay a weekend, so must commute for each week.  I drove every time.  I no longer fly.  The last flight i took was to LA for some meetings back in July 2010.  TSA Grope and Rope went into effect right afterwards.

My employer knows two things are hard and fast about me:  i don't eat bread or sweets (low carb diet), and i don't fly.  So all business operations must take that into consideration.  Since he doesn't drink either, that one never comes up.  :)
