Nudie-scan CEO an Obama ally
Washington Examiner ^ | 11/14/2010 | Timothy P. Carney

Posted on 11/21/2010 3:40:12 PM PST by bushwon

Rapiscan is one of the two companies that makes the nudie-scanners at airports for the TSA. Rapiscan CEO Deepak Chopra (who has the same name as the more famous Deepak Chopra, M.D.) recently was tapped by Obama to accompany the administration on Obama’s trip to India.

Also, Chopra is an Obama donor.

Also, George Soros had stock in that scanner company up until about a week ago. He dumped it after the controversy erupted.

Terrorizing the children and the elderly so that his disgusting cronies can cash in on still more taxpayer money should earn him impeachment. Who will get the ball rolling in the new Congress?

In the great Taiwanese news parody video of this story, they aptly dub the company "RapeScan Systems"

“In the summer [2009], TSA purchased 150 machines from Rapiscan with $25 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds.”

I doubt it, I think Obama has a cold dead heart. He thinks nothing about letting little babies die miserable deaths. Why would he care about anybody else?

Obama is not being hammered enough re TSA and groping.

A google search for the keywords TSA and groping returns 590,000 hits.

Add Obama to those two keywords and the hits drop to 280,000 hits.

Obama, the Marxist Muslim, can only protect his Muslim buddies so much.

I know Obama is on a high following his recent visit to the largest mosque in Indonesia and he was probably salivating as he saw his brothers bent over in prayer to Allah.

It must be nice when people complain about using your device you can just get the ear of the big guy and voila - - you get the muscle to force any sniviling citizens into compliance.

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

Stimulus money? Groping? It's all coming together now.

This whole thing stinks of payola and backroom deals. The signature of democrat politics.

Yes, I believe that Chertoff is part of a lobby group that represents either this company or the other of the 2 scanner companies that are benefiting from the “increased need for security.” Greed knows no political affiliation....

Well I don’t think greed is limited to the dems, but it is interesting how this is all happening now and coming together...it is the Chicago way. So much for ethics and transparency...

Don’t they have laws against lobbyists doing that sort of thing?

Couldn’t we have guessed this — and is the owner of the scanner Muslim too?

Interesting...I read that Chertoff was a lobbyist involved in this...he was former TSA head.
