    Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul told the Transportation Security Administration today that it should end what he called the “universality of insult” of random pat-downs of passengers. In a meeting of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Paul grilled TSA Administrator John Pistole over the recent pat-down of a six-year-old Kentucky girl, a video of which went viral over the Internet. “It makes me think you’re clueless, if you think she’s going to attack our country and you’re not doing your research on the people who want to attack our country,” Paul said. “It absolutely must involve a risk...

    Four Republican senators seek to cut off money to czars in the Obama administration and force current and future czars to undergo a Senate confirmation. The senators, David Vitter of Louisiana, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Dean Heller of Nevada and Chuck Grassley of Iowa, have introduced the amendment in the Nominations Process Reform Bill. Heller said the amendment, which defines czar as the “head of any task force, council, policy office or similar office established by the president that has not been confirmed by the U.S. Senate,” excluding the National Security Advisor, could return some accountability to the current administration’s...

    Dangers include syphilis, lice, viruses, ringworm Syphilis, lice, gonorrhea, ringworm, chlamydia, staph, strep, noro and papilloma viruses all are part of the possible fringe benefits when airline passengers next go through a full hands-on pat-down by agents of the federal government's Transportation Security Administration, according to doctors. WND reported two days ago on alarmed passengers who noted that TSA agents doing the pat-downs that have been described by critics as molestation since they include touching private body parts were not changing gloves between passengers. In fact, some apparently were patting down dozens of passengers or more wearing the same gloves....

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today issued an updated travel advisory for those concerned about new airport security measures involving full-body scanners and more invasive pat-downs. Earlier this year, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) began phasing in full-body Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) scanners in airports as a primary screening method. In February, CAIR supported a statement by a prominent group of Muslim scholars that the full-body scanners violate religious and privacy rights. If you wear the Islamic head scarf and you are selected for secondary screening, ask the TSA officer if the reason you are being selected for secondary...

    When U.S soldiers with nail clippers and flight attendants who've survived breast cancer are treated as potential terrorists, you know the TSA is "acting stupidly." Yet the administration thinks everything is fine. Imagine the department of motor vehicles with cattle prods, and you're close to the mentality exhibited by Transportation Safety Administration chief John Pistole on CNN's "State of the Union" show Sunday. He told host Candy Crowley that what the Israelis have "is top-notch security," but the U.S. won't use these techniques because America does not profile. Excuse us? The U.S. won't use what the world's No. 1 terrorist...
  • TSA Rolls Out Ad on Pat-Downs (Your taxpayer money for Obama's propaganda)

    Even as White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said the administration is “desperately” trying to balance security and passenger concerns, Transportation Security Administration head John Pistole has filmed a public service announcement. It’s aimed at the TSA’s “partners in security”—the hapless fliers holding their coats, belts, keys, shoes, laptops and liquids at airport checkpoints.

    I just got off the phone with an acquaintance that works at one of those annual fee rooms at airports that allow you to enjoy free drinks, wifi and snacks while you wait for your site and he told me a VERY interesting event that happened yesterday. And remember, you have to get through security to be in these rooms. They are near the gates: A mousy, sweet woman came up to the counter and asked if they had storage lockers. The employee behind the counter told her that they don’t, but there were places to store things by baggage...

    Where is the liberal outrage that was so much in evidence over the Patriot Act, now that the Transportation and Safety Administration is feeling up old women and taking naked pictures of children? Maybe I missed it, but I’ve scanned the headlines and can’t find the stories of anyone in Congress with a D after his name castigating Barack Obama over the administration’s policy to molest Americans who have the nerve to get on an airplane and go visit grandpa.
