Napolitanos V.I.P.R. Vows to Dominate,Intimidate and Controlthe American People BY COACH COLLINS,ON JULY 15TH,2011
By Doug Book,staff writer
Since its inception in 2002,the Department of Homeland Security has grown increasingly contemptuous of the rights of the American people. Indeed,the Gestapo-like tactics of one of the Departments better known masters of overreachthe TSAare responsible for countless examples of the organizations daily assault on the Constitution.
But recently,another of Janet Napolitanos handmaidens of harassment has begun to make news albeit only on the web,of course. It is the TSAs Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response task forceor VIPR. Organized into mobile swat teams,VIPR has executed some 8,000 highly public searches in the past 12 months.
And what meaningful operations they have been.
In a Georgia Amtrac station,VIPR personnel patted downall travelers,children and adults,both entering AND LEAVING the station.
In Santa Fe,New Mexico,teams of VIPR agents were assigned to conduct searches at a high school prom.
In Texas,agents thoroughly searched all private and commercial vehicles entering and exiting the port of Brownsville. EACH AND EVERY VEHICLE was searched even though the task force was not responding to any known or reported threat!
In April,VIPR staged a raid at a Tampa bus station. Once again,the teams were not responding to any particular threat. Rather,Homeland Security official Gary Milano said the purpose of the exercise was to invent the wheel in advance,in case we have to,if there is ever specific intelligence requiring us to be here.
And two months later,VIPR targeted 5,000 square miles bordering West Virginia,Ohio and Kentucky. Four hundred agents representing 70 federal agencies appeared in Black Hawk helicopters,small planes and Coast Guard craft. Once again this was a training exercise.As usual,no threat had been suspected or reported. TSA official Michael Cleveland stated, the purpose of the exercise was to have a visible presence and let people know were out here. IT CAN BE A DETERRENT.
But who is being deterred,intimidated and threatened by these unnecessary shows of force- certainly not terrorists.
Uncontrolled search and seizure is one of the first and most effective weapons in the arsenal of every arbitrary government Among deprivations of rights,none is so effective in cowing a population,crushing the spirit of the individual and putting terror in every heart,said Justice Robert Jackson,the chief US prosecutor at Nuremberg.
The American people are being systematically subjected to,and desensitized to,warrantless searches and the most egregious and unnecessary forms of personal humiliation by an organization whose raison detre is inscribed at the TSA Air Marshall Training Center:DOMINATE,INTIMIDATE,CONTROL. And the more often this is done,the more reasonableit will seem. Routine? Acceptable? Like 10% unemployment,government harassment will become the new norm.After all,it is for our own good!
One has to wonder if Barack Obama isnt grateful to Muslim terrorists for the 9/11 attacks. After all,without those 3,000 murders,how could a would-be dictator justify the Constitutional abuse to which he is subjecting millions of American citizens? Makes it easier somehow to understand his bow to the King of Saudi Arabia,doesnt it!

He DID say he wanted his own force as large and as well equipped as the US Military.
That he did. But we stand in the way.
Hire 5000 more screeners!
Where does it stop? Where do we draw the line and say enough is enough?
When we elect Ron Paul and he abolishes it and Brings all our Boys home from all over the world. Until then they will grope your granny and your kids. We need a Re-Set.
Can't believe it took nine posts. This is freaking psychotic -- which is exactly what anyone paying attention would expect from Janet Napolitano.
In law-enforcement-speak: when everyone is compliant.
I watched half an episode of that show. Two of the main characters were on the road in their squad car, and somehow managed to work “global warming deniers” and their “brainwashing” into the conversation. It had nothing to do with the plot. That was enough for me.
I didn’t see that episode, but I could only take about five minutes of the drooling, paramilitary thugs, and the channel went off. (Off topic but even my favorite soap, after all these years of being as “normal” as a soap can be, had to stick in their homo agenda the other day. No more of that one...)
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
In other words, Never.
Bush and Obama- two sides of the same coin. It took Obama for me to see how truly awful Bush was, and vice versa, if that makes any sense.
The only two sides we are going to be allowed to vote for, from this point forward.
We aren't there yet but that may not last.
There is one episode, an absolutely unbelievable one (unbelievable that they would make it), in which 4 teenage girls get in a fight in a mall and one of the girls has a gun and another of the girls gets shot.
The swat team comes into the mall, gets on the PA system and tells everyone in the mall to line up in the hallways, on their knees, with their hands clamped behind their heads so the swat team “can do our jobs safely”.
I kid you not. The turd-brain writers and directors of this turd-ertainment actually thought they had a good story there!!!!!
And of course, in the story, all the turd-brain sheep comply.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
I was watching some “TruLife” show about Hermosa Beach earlier today. Some drunk guy fell off the roof and the paramedics were trying to get to him. The jackboots were shoving his friends to the sidewalk, beating them, arresting them, and intimidating them — all because they wanted to check on their friend.
It didn’t look to me like they weren’t giving the paramedics room, but like the jackboots just wanted to show who’s in charge. An old-fashioned bullhorn wouldn’t have worked???
A few Saudis caused all this. Are there any restrictions on Saudis traveling to America? Hell no. Are there molestations of Americans traveling? Hell yea.
The point is as suggested. Control control control. The more they intimidate, the more we will accept. It's for the safety of travelers, you know.
Flashpoint takes place in Canada, eh?
(You're not serious, are you?)
