Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars.com, 02/07/14 – Award winning Jewish author Phyllis Chesler was questioned and had her bag searched at New York’s JFK Airport as a result of a TSA agent’s suspicions over the fact that she was reading a conservative newspaper.
The incident happened on Wednesday afternoon after Chesler’s flight to Florida was delayed due to the recent ice storms.
As soon as Chesler pulled out a copy of The Jewish Press, a popular English language weekly with a conservative political bent, a TSA agent eyed her with suspicion, approached the author and asked to see the newspaper.
Critics who say the Courts will strike down any TSA anti-groping law TX may pass are correct. BUT that’s the point! The day the bill is passed some Fed judge will issue an injunction against it. BUT history shows that constant pressure on all fronts is required to bring about change in big government. Just look at the civil rights movement of the 50’s and 60’s and more recently the right to life movement. People rose up, there were court challenges, protest marches, elections replacing incumbents, and eventually there was real change. That’s the same thing that will eventually reestablish the 10th Amendment and, if history maintains, it will take years. Don’t be discouraged.

As we have documented, the anti-pat down bill was derailed in the Texas Senate having unanimously passed the House by 138-0 votes after the Department of Justice sent a letter threatening to impose a no fly zone over Texas and shut down Texas airports. The warning was nothing short of a federal blockade and an act of financial terrorism. Continue reading →
Do you feel safer knowing America has a seemingly inexhaustible supply of academic elites setting and enforcing Obama administration policy? What next – a court appointed lawyer for feral pigs and johnson grass???
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Federal officials insisted Wednesday that screeners at Kansas City International Airport were just doing their jobs when they frisked a baby, an incident that gained worldwide attention after a pastor posted a cellphone picture of the pat-down on Twitter.
The baby’s stroller set off an alert of possible traces of explosives Saturday, so the screeners were justified in taking a closer look at the boy cradled in his mother’s arms, said Nick Kimball, a spokesman for the Transportation Security Administration. Continue reading →
No matter how you feel about Congressman Ron Paul, you must admire his stance on this issue.
Thank you Congressman Ron Paul, for standing up and speaking up!
The FDA has estimated that the risk of fatal cancer from the maximum allowable dose would be 1 in 80 million per backscatter screening. And doses from a single scan are considerably lower than the maximum, Kassiday said. Continue reading →
