Washington, DC—Airline security has always been dysfunctional from the day the FAA took over that responsibility. They began by getting a poorly thought out mandate that all passengers be screened by people we would not trust to walk our dogs.
The FAA disarmed any pilots that were permitted by local laws to carry guns. Likewise they disarmed vetted, trained cops flying on our airplanes. That was because of the personal gun rights hating philosophy of these political patronage appointees.
Criminals, illegal aliens and those with minimal mental capacity were hired to inspect the personal property and possessions of travelers. It was never intended to be real security but a pretend effort to fool passengers into thinking they were somehow safe.
That unforgettable attack of September 11, 2001 and the FAA policies enabled the murders of nearly 3,000 and damages in the hundreds of billions. The pilots were unarmed and defenseless and two off duty cops on two of the four planes were also disarmed and helpless. Had the pilots and off-duty cops been armed, 9/11 would have been just another day.
Not one FAA official or government bureaucrat was even criticized for creating the perfect conditions for the Muslim terrorists.
The TSA was created as a new ways to waste billions on government contractor fraud as thousands of hard corps unemployable people were given jobs and the power to abuse and steal the belongings of passengers.
The cargo side of airline security is not seen by passengers and accordingly is largely ignored. The TSA administration has equated the public perception of their job performance by how much aggravation passengers can be put through.
To date the TSA or their predecessors have not stopped a single terrorist incident.
Not one politician or government bureaucrat has ever suggested that people flying on passports from countries unfriendly to the United States be banned from our planes. Somebody, please tell me how that makes any sense at all.
Now the TSA want to expose passengers to unknown health risks by forcing them through body X-Ray imaging devices. The TSA has also recently digressed from less invasive metal detection wanding, to offensive, outrageous genital groping and fondling.
One invasive step at a time, Americans seem willing to accept anything from government. I guess the German people felt that Adolph Hitler was working for public safety during the reign of the Third Reich. This TSA attack on travelers is a criminal effort that violates the rights of Americans that must be shut down right now.
We fought wars to stop such government abuse and we must fight again right now or we will have surrendered our dignity with our liberty. Homeland Security and the TSA are out-of-control as they have waged war not on terror but on American Passengers.
Americans need not take abuse from TSA workers. You have an absolute right to order these people to take their hands off you and to use physical force if they don't. Call the local police on your cell phone should they touch your private parts. Lawyers are waiting to sue on your behalf for this kind on conduct. Don't remain silent and then try and report it when your trip is over.
The largest pilots union has told its members to refuse the X-Ray body scanners. They need our support.Meet TSA thug Butler at LAX terminal 2
Watch how one TSA baggage screener broke TSA rules and the law in an effort to prevent me from lawfully shooting video at LAX airport. Had she not stopped her assault on me I’d have thrown that miserable bitch down a long flight of concrete stars from the upper level of Terminal Two. She learned quickly I was serious.
