They cannot refuse a "request" from congress. Even the president must send a representative to answer questions when congress invites him to testify. TSA should be defunded and DHS should be eliminated.

Q: How many terrorists has the TSA stopped?







A: ZERO!

You are right, but consider this. You aren't allowed to drive your car in excess of the posted speed limit either. The sign means nothing though if the local traffic cop never pulls anybody over for it. Congress doesn't have the balls to make them do anything. Even Eric Holder got away with flat out lying to congress and we haven't heard a peep since the Obama claimed executive privilige over fast and furious.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

If any of us here resisted attending a congressional hearing we would be arrested and thrown in jail.

People at the TSA can shrug their shoulders submit a piece of paper and essentially tell congress to piss off. Congress then responds, "Okay TSA. Thanks...and sorry to be such a bother!"

With 'friends' like Congress, who needs enemies?

This actually broke a couple of days ago. Fucking tsa think they are above everything, they are just scum imo.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28707427


Yes, it broke quietly. No mainstream news. I was shocked not to find it posted here already.

It's not the first time they have refused either. They thumbed their noses at congress in 2011 also.
TSA is and agency of and for Honey Badgers.

Yes, they announced the current "up yours" to congress less than two days ago.
TSA has it on its own website. Link in first post of this thread.

Executive branch tyranny. Obama's SS troops do not answer to the people and just enough useful idiots voted to keep them in power longer.
 Quoting: Resister


Governments and religions go thru a house cleaning every once in a while. They get too top heavy, too complex, militant, blatant and greedy then fall creating hell for everyone. They are blind to historical facts that think it will somehow be different for them this time.

BUT, who is really to blame? Studies show that sociopaths account for only about 1 or2% of the population. Remember in school when one or two kids spoiled some privilege for the whole class. Why let 1% spoil it for the rest?

The larger percentage of the people is too complacent and has always suffered from their inaction. Change and revolutions happen when the pain of doing nothing becomes intolerable and the people have no recourse but revolt.

America and the world are on the verge of that revolt. The corpcrapacy know this and feeds the sheeple the latest “hope and change”. When that starts to wear thin, a new hope and change is fed to them. When hope and change wears too thin, a police state emerges to quell the masses. This is sort of like the good cop/bad cop game. Eventually it all ends in a revolution.

Then it slowly starts up again. IMO, the world is crazy.

if the republican party had a backbone where that strip of jelly is, they would: a) defund the entire system; and b) send the sergeant at arms to arrest this arrogant pos who runs this organization.

but we all know the republican party is ball-less and useless.

I've searched GLP for this topic in several ways and could not find this story:

Posted by the TSA on its own website on Nov 27:

[link to www.tsa.gov]

By U.S. House of Representatives rules which state that the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee has no jurisdiction over the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), no representative from TSA will be present at the Subcommittee on Aviation hearing scheduled for Nov. 29.
----

The legal road to tyranny has been paved; Barriers have been erected; Checkpoints have been established, and they can even legally refuse to even be questioned by Congress without any consequence?

wtf

This shit has got to stop.

Maybe, but Congress does have control of their funding. Looks like the first department they might just need to cut from the budget.
