No Escape from the TSA’s Sexual Molestation and Naked Body Porno Scanners
Wednesday, February 9, 2011
Back in January there was a healthy sign that a handful of airports around the country were saying no to the TSA and its sexual molestation searches and naked body porno scanners. Airport managers said they are opposed to the federal government telling them how to run security.
“The TSA has grown too big and we’re unhappy with the way it’s doing things,” Larry Dale, president of Orlando Sanford International Airport, told MSNBC. “My board is sold on the fact that the free enterprise system works well and that we should go with a private company we can hold directly accountable for security and customer satisfaction.”
Airports in Los Angeles, the Washington, D.C. metro area and Charlotte, N.C., were also considering telling the TSA to take a hike.
Rep. John Mica, a Florida Republican and chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, encouraged the country’s 200 biggest airports to opt out. Mica said the TSA is a “bloated, poorly focused and top-heavy bureaucracy.”
The TSA immediately attempted to control this dangerous trend. “TSA sets the security standards that must be followed and that includes the use of enhanced pat-downs and imaging technology, if installed at the airport,” TSA spokesperson Greg Soule said in response.
The TSA eventually offered a fig leaf to ward off disenchantment. It turned out to be nothing but a smoke screen. “The Transportation Security Administration is still taking applications from airports looking to shift over to private security screeners, but those applications probably aren’t going anywhere, the agency explained,” reports Government Security News.

In addition, the TSA declared that sexual molestation searches and dangerous naked body porno scanners to be the iron-clad rule of the day that cannot be deviated from. “You may recall a recent post where I wrote about the TSA contract screener program. I posted because many were under the wrong impression that screening from contractors is or would be different than federal screening. The post explained how airports that opt out of TSA screening are still regulated by TSA. In a nutshell, the screening is the same,” explains “Blogger Bob” on the TSA blog.
On January 28, TSA boss John S. Pistole said that he had decided not to expand the contract screener program because he did “not see any clear or substantial advantage to do so.” Mr. Pistole said airports that “currently use contractor screening will continue to be regulated by TSA and required to meet our high security standards.”
In short, there will be no escape from federal Gestapo zones where sexual humiliation and submission to the state are the order of the day.
Obama’s initial choice to head up the TSA was Robert Harding, who wanted to turn the TSA into a military intelligence operation that would expand to bus and train stations. Fortunately, Harding was rejected, but that did not stop Pistole’s TSA from implementing intrusive pat-downs and naked body scanners.
On Sunday, the TSA in partnership with a military contractor and the private sector – the very essence of fascism – gave us a glimpse of the future during the Super Bowl. “Everyone entering the stadium must pass through a magnetometer, such as those used at airports, and get a pat down as part of the screening process. The majority of fans will enter through checkpoints on the east side of Cowboys Stadium,” reported the Dallas Star-Telegram on Friday. An array of high-tech surveillance technology was used on fans.
The electronic panopticon used at the event, however, was just the beginning. Homeland Security is also developing technology to be used at “security events” which purports to monitor “malintent” on behalf of an individual who passes through a checkpoint. Similar programs are in use at 161 airports around the country.
John Pistole has made it perfectly clear that when you travel you will be subjected to humiliation and made to submit to the government. The feds will not allow private airlines and airports to hire their own security.
As noted above, the TSA and DHS are itching to extend their reach to sports stadiums, malls, train and bus stations, and all public areas. America is rapidly becoming little different than the Soviet Union or East Germany with its notorious Stasi.
How long before they place naked body porno scanners in your neighborhood?
