Rob Kezelis: Gate Rape – the new reality

2001 – Bin Laden plots surprise attack to turn America into a flock of fearful, spineless, afraid of their own shadow sheeple

2010 – The Earl of Orange bypasses all security on his flight back to Ohio

COINCIDENCE? I think NOT!

“Being felt up by a TSA employee is the closest most Americans will ever come to joining the Mile High Club.”

“You could kill a pilot with these (nail clippers). You could kill, you could disable a steward with these!”
Tracy Ullman

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.

FROM THE CHURCH OF INEFFABLE STUPIDITY:

I am no prude, but, seriously, when I learned that some catholic priests were leaving the Church so they could get jobs with the TSA, I began to think about air travel in a whole new light.

I fly maybe four times a year domestically, and one international trip a year. What strikes me is how professional the foreign security checks are, especially compared to domestic checks within our borders. As of now, I am going to rethink all future travel plans, at least until President Obama and his gang of serial gropers reconsider the error of their ways.

A couple of recent stories have shocked Americans. About time, I say:

A flight attendant and cancer survivor has revealed her horror at being forced to show her prosthetic breast to a security agent during a pat-down at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
Cathy Bossi from South Charlotte has been a flight attendant for over 30 years and has worked for U.S. Airways for the past 28  years.
She said she was asked to go through the full body-scanners at the airport in early August which she was reluctant to do because of fears of the radiation from the machine passing through her body.

Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/…

High radiation levels? breast groping, removal of prosthetics? THESE are what the modern TSA requires  of law abiding citizens, simply so we can fly?

It gets worse:

Thomas Sawyer, a retired special education teacher and bladder cancer survivor, was chosen for enhanced pat down after airport body scanners picked up on his urostomy bag. Sawyer, 61, wears the bag to collect urine, but TSA officers broke the seal on his bag, causing urine to flow on his clothes and body, reports MSNBC. Upset and humiliated, Sawyer says he had to board his plane before he had a chance to clean up.

TSA response: he should be grateful he didn’t have a colostomy.

Had enough? there’s more.

Secretary Napolitano and President Bush Obama both announced that this “layered” approach to “air safety” was necessary to protect Americans’ freedoms.  Say WHAT?
Perhaps we should time travel to the mid 1700s, and recall the immortal words of Ole Ben: “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Well, he was right. The real pity is that we’ve already given up too many essential liberties, including the freedom to travel freely.

Liberty? Hah. Security? Well, according to all independent experts, the new TSA approach does nothing at all to increase safety and security. Instead, it merely reinforces the unwarranted fear that was inflicted upon us by the Bush Administration, with malice aforethought. We were plucked like a guitar string, and subjected to lies, fake increased security alerts, and propaganda for years. Apparently those efforts have taken their toll.

For some years now, America has become a fear driven country. I think we should petition congress to change the words of our national anthem from “Land of the Free, and Home of the Brave) to something far more accurate. Land of decree, home of the slave?
I am open to any and all suggestions.

Several years ago, I personally witlessed  what I call the “Deadly Nail Clipper” incident. I was stopping over in Hawaii on my way to a point further west. At the security check, a well dressed elderly man, about 80, was carrying a sealed jar. Unfortunately, he also carried the gold and jewel encrusted nail clipper that his deceased wife have given to him. The TSA bastards bitched and raised their voices, and actually pushed this poor man around.  Then in front of the elderly gentleman’s eyes,  one of the TSAssholes took  a pair of pliers and ripped apart his nail clipper, after which he threw it away.

That was bad enough, but the TSAsshole was not done. That jar? That sealed jar? That sealed jar for which he had papers, a certificate and notarized proof of contents? It contained the ashes of his recently deceased lifelong mate. He was taking her remains back to her homeland (Japan) for burial. He did not feel comfortable stowing the jar in baggage. From the argument, he claimed that he had called ahead, and the TSA approved his carrying the ashes in the passenger compartment.

Guess what? Yup, the TSA bastards cracked open the jar, and using one of the plastic x-ray trays, EMPTIED OUT THE ASHES so they could sift to them. Finding nothing, without any apology or explanation, they shoved the ashes back in, handed back the jar, and threatened him that if he ever did something like that again, he would be facing real trouble.

IF.HE.EVER.DID.SOMETHING.LIKE.THAT.AGAIN?

(accompanying empty space is intended to indicate speachlessness. Shock. Anger. Dismay. But especially anger.)

Janet Napolitano’s response to the rising complaints? “If you see something, say something.”

OK, I’ll bite. I have seen something. I have seen the TSA grope, fondle, attack, and assault law abiding citizens allegedly “for their own good.” I have seen TSA bring a grieving elderly man to tears, by destroying a harmless gift from his wife, then fondle her remains in front of his eyes. I have seen the TSA mistreat, badger, insult, and smirk while doing it.So, this is what I will say:  BULLSHIT. I call bullshit on this useless, ineffective, insulting and degrading policy, and on the TSA that instituted this mess.

There have been several reports of rape victims pleading with TSA not to fondle or grope them. Too bad. According to Napolitano, if you don’t like it, don’t fly. You should be comforted that the TSA is taking liberties, oops, taking your liberty seriously. You have three choices:

  1. You can write them at Transportation Security Administration

Office of Civil Rights and Liberties (TSA-6)
External Compliance Division
601 S. 12th Street
Arlington, VA 20598

  1. You can e-mail them at  TSA.OCR-ExternalCompliance@dhs.gov
  1. You can unzip your pants, pull out and piss directly into the wind.

All three will provide you with the same result.

Here’s what the TSA tells us about civil rights and liberties:

We treat all members of the traveling public in a manner free from unlawful discrimination, harassment or retaliation. To emphasize our commitment to TSA employees and the traveling public, TSA issued its Civil Rights Policy Statement.

Quite simply, our policy statement assures travelers they will be treated in a fair, lawful and nondiscriminatory manner. It also emphasizes we have no tolerance for harassment in the treatment of the public we serve. Finally, it outlines out how we ensure an environment free of discrimination through program, policy, and operational reviews.

TSA’s groping policy statement

Sure thing, folks. The TSA agrees to not discriminate in how they fondle, grope, assault and attack you and your loved ones.

Even the dead ones.

Oh, one more factoid to factor in this debate. Do you know how many terrorists have been caught or captured by this group groping, this Gate Rape?

None.

On Edit. This is actually getting worse:

f you don’t want to pass through an airport scanner that allows security agents to see an image of your naked body or to undergo the alternative, a thorough manual search, you may have to find another way to travel this holiday season.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is warning that any would-be commercial airline passenger who enters an airport checkpoint and then refuses to undergo the method of inspection designated by TSA will not be allowed to fly and also will not be permitted to simply leave the airport.

That person will have to remain on the premises to be questioned by the TSA and possibly by local law enforcement. Anyone refusing faces fines up to $11,000 and possible arrest.

Unreasonable search, seizure, and now fines?

      Great link.

      The new pat-down procedures bear the ominous adjective “enhanced,” an overtaxed official euphemism last pressed into service to normalize torture.

      Says it all right there.

      In watching the supplied video within the Pro Libertate link, it was mentioned that extreme situations require ‘common sense’ on the part of the employee per some talking head TSA supervisor…say what? The video content is stunning to say the least and I’m somewhat baffled as to why there hasn’t been a huge, almost nation destabilizing uproar over these “braindead” freedom and privacy destructive agency tactics.

      Handling these pre-conditioned air travelers will be a piece of cake for their future overseers in the NWO internment camps …no? / : |

    Don’t just “opt out” of naked scanners only to be sexually molested/assaulted, instead. Boycott Flying COMPLETELY, until sanity returns! Please join us: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Boycott-Flying/126801010710392

      I. Will. Not. Fly. Again. Anywhere.

      No Matter What.

      Not for funerals. Not for business. Not for nothing.

      Not until the entire Bill of Rights is restored. It was canceled with the PATRIOT ACTS, inaptly named, and subsequent legislation. Only the 3rd Amendment remains. Restore the Bill of Rights completely. Then, the airlines will have my business.

      If more of us take my pledge, the whole sham theater of security will stop its overly long run.

    The majority of the American public it seems are being herded like cattle and don’t seem to mind for the most part! Janet Napolitano of HS says in reaction to some complaints about this says, ” Tough shit, it’s to damn bad you don’t like it, cause we don’t give a ratz a$$, we will not change it”! Something similar was said by the TSA chief as well.

    Even though some in this country(unfortunately not the majority)believe in the Constitution and rule of law(a pretense by the way from on high)and their liberties, most just have that good old feeling that our government is protecting all of us from those hordes of evil terrorists because they “hate” our freedoms so much! But somehow, in someway, by somemanner those terrorists are actually managing to take those freedoms away from us! And from 3000 miles away as well! And without being elected to an “office” within our own government! And without even being citizens of this country! A truly Astounding and absolutely Remarkable feat!

    I guess that means that the terrorists are winning!

    Maybe our government hates our freedoms as much as the terrorists do!?!

  5. b mcclellan  November 21, 2010 at 7:07 pm

    The real hate will begin when we’ve run out of freedoms for them to tax.
    Stay tuned.

  6. Warren  November 22, 2010 at 2:14 am

    Way I guess it, the idea is that sooner or later some ultra-right nut will get fired up enough to call open season on a TSA Nazi Agent. Then the government and the puppet media will bring out the sobbing widow and kids to validate the wonderfulness of these kind-hearted family-guy TSA Nazis Agents who give their lives to protect us.

    Just watch.

    Myself and others on this site are always sharing our genuine, heartfelt libertarian sentiments.

    Sometimes a rousing song best supports our quest for freedom, justice and “domestic tranquility” for all.

    I”m going to supply a song by Christy Moore, an incredibtly talented folksinger. This man is an inspiration to all when it comes kindling fires of the spirit to resist tyranny for all time and places, regardless of where a citizen of the world hails from. : |

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pW1MUpZT4ug&feature=more_related …Enjoy! : )

    The featured song revolves around the 15th International Brigade a group of volunteers from various countries who resisted the “fascist tide” in Spain during the 30′s, what is referred to as the “Spanish Civil War”. Substitute our current national travails into the same national angst of those times for supporters of the “cause” whatever. People need to get motivated and save themselves from tryanny with the result being national slavery.

    O say can you pee
    Into this little glass jar
    For the safety of all’s
    In universal drug testing
    And the T.S.A.’s flair
    With those travails by air
    Gave fear to go with the terrorists’ scare
    O say do our own efforts yet pa-ave
    The road to tyranny; and to, freedom’s, grave…

  11. senegoid  November 24, 2010 at 6:50 am

    You know what’s going to happen next?

    It will be illegal (under wiretapping or eavesdropping laws) to photograph or record TSA employees.

    No images less rage.

    The noose tightens.

    But wouldn’t it be a blast, and wouldn’t it get some world wide recognition if 10,000 true American patriots fronted up at the JFK checkpoints – all stark naked and lined up like Jews about to get “bathed”.

    No need to get scanned, no need to get groped – unless of course the perverts insist you have swallowed a bomb and decide to entertain their sick and twisted fantasies.

    They would either have to arrest everyone for indecency or let them pass in peace.

    There are many ways to resist – but few will.

    Poor fellow America

    I think the TSA people and the gov’t should shove it. I thank God every day that I don’t have to fly anywhere. If I need to go overseas, I’ll charter a boat. The world is going to hell

  14. WhiteSnow  November 29, 2010 at 9:09 pm

    Someone above said it correctly….it’s tyranny & when we see the left & right come together, who have lost faith in their government then we’ll see full blown tyranny with martial law.

    Thanks Almandine for the superb essay concerning the apologia that “I was only doing my job” as used in ‘horror regimes’ of the past’ and seemingly so now in our times, the once land of the ‘free’ and home of the ‘brave’…no longer!

    What’s really tragic and also highly “suspect” is that our Congressional contingent doesn’t seem to get it either; I.E., Homeland Security/TSA has now run amok, excepting Congressman Paul and possibly a few others. Seemingly they have an agenda for us and it ain’t good for sure.

    They are so smug and entrenched; they now both fear and loathe the very people that put them in office and given the chance would love to see a truly vicious, in our face police state emerge as long as they can remain in the ‘politburo’, once our Congress for life. We’ve got traitorous, terminally greedy, scheming scumbags in high office and they are becoming evermore dangerous by the day.
