Congressman Duncan Blasts TSA Pat-Downs, Body Scanners, States revolt is here!
"WASHINGTON – Congressman John J. Duncan, Jr. (R-Tenn.) blasted the Transportation Security Administration Wednesday during a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives for invasive “pat-downs” of U.S. citizens and the role lucrative government contracts played in the use of body scanning machines at airport checkpoints.

Duncan, former Chairman of the House Aviation Subcommittee and the current top Republican on the House Subcommittee on Highways and Transit, said: “Unfortunately, for the traveling public, big brother never makes a mistake, so I am not surprised they are trying to defend the purchase of these scanners.”

Mr. Speaker:

A nationwide revolt is developing over the body scanners at the airports, and it should.

Hundreds of thousands of frequent fliers who fly each week are upset about getting these frequent doses of radiation.

Parents are upset about being forced to have their children radiated or being touched inappropriately by an unrelated adult.

There is already plenty of security at the airport, but now we are going to spend up to $300 million to install 1,000 scanners.

This is much more about money than it is about security.

The former Secretary of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff, represents Rapiscan, the company which is selling these scanners to his former department.

Far too many federal contracts are sweetheart, insider deals."

The full text of Rep. Duncan’s speech is at this link:

I just got off the phone with his office. I thanked him for speaking about this from the House floor and encouraged him to address how this is a violation of our 4th ammendmend rights not to be searched without probable cause.

The TSA and DHS are clearly acting without any limits to their tyranny now. To stop this we are going to have to get congress and the states to act.

Call your congressmen!

Wrong.

That comes from a bogus poll that was designed precisely to get the desired result.

"Are you in favor of the new, enhanced security measures now being used by the TSA at US airports?"

The options for answering this question are, Yes, No and Not Sure.

Now, here is the problem. At this point, the average American is barely even beginning to hear about any of this, much less experiencing it firsthand. So in their idle minds, "enhanced security" translates into "Flying is safer."

Now take every one of the respondents to that poll down to the airport with the assignment of getting on a flight and see what happens. After they have gone through the wonderful new security procedures, see how much they are in favor of them, or against them, after that.

It takes time for the word to get around because the majority of people are either too busy working all day in order to pay the bills, struggling with or against all of their own problems or are distracted (as usual) for whatever other reason(s) and thus have not quite yet tuned into what is happening. But that is going to change fairly fast now.

So if they MSM were to take a poll on the same subject in a couple of months and after millions of other air travelers have had this wonderful experience during the Holiday Season travel period, the results would be different.

For now, the MSM are just doing their job which is to try to make the people look like sheeple and therefore make others back down. But it isn't going to work, not this time.

It sure feels like they want us rioting in the streets. This "let them eat cake" attitude from DHS, TSA and the federal government has only one final outcome and they have to know that.

We must resist that urge for it will play right into their hands.

That's correct. I forget the precise stats, but the average American flies irregularly and I think it's less than two times per year. So this means that the GREAT majority of American passengers have not been in an airplane in the last 30 days.

Wait til these folks start showing up at the airport and having their children's genitals groped and squeezed and rubbed by these ex-McDonald's employees. They are NOT going to like it.

That CNN poll is so biased it ain't even funny. Most frequent fliers are adamantly opposed to this craziness and once Joe Sixpack starts enduring blue-gloved sexual assaults, there'll be an uproar.
