TSA Punishes A Young Girl for Forgetting a Drink in Her Bag

Robby Soaves at Reason.com wants to know why the TSA agent isn’t being charged with sexual battery. It is a reasonable question (no pun intended) not least because TSA agents have been caught manipulating the system in order to get to do homosexual groping of targeted people. Vendela Payne, a 10-year-old from San Diego, California, inadvertently smuggled a Capri sun juice box into her luggage at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport. The TSA caught her, which triggered a mandatory pat down. Read more […]

TSA Gives Themselves the Power to Force You into Nudie Scanners. Merry Christmas!

The TSA, up until now, had given us the option of a pat-down instead of a full body scan. While the pat-down, which is sometimes quite invasive, causes far more discomfort than the scanner, it doesn’t produce a digital image of your naked body. For that reason, some prefer the pat-down. Too bad. The TSA has taken away that option for some (all?) people. Reason reports, Quietly, on December 18, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced a change of the rules for the use of body scanning Read more […]

TSA Protects Flyers from Buzz Lightyear

While the TSA is failing again to protect us from terrorists, it has found another threat that is within its pay grade. According to CBS Philly, It’s not the kind of “toy story” a Pennsylvania family had hoped for. They say TSA officials sent their five-year-old son’s Buzz Lightyear toy to ‘infinity and beyond.’ The Zilka family was returning home from a trip to Disney World, where the boy’s uncle bought him a Buzz Lightyear “flip grip.” However, security officials at Read more […]

TSA Is Failing Yet Again

You may remember that the Transportation Security Administration massively failed a basic test this last summer. Have they improved since then? According to Jeff Jacoby in the Boston Globe, That was in June. In July, a new TSA chief pledged to lawmakers that within 60 days “we will have trained the failure out of the front line” of airport screening personnel. So how do things stand four months later? The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a hearing on that question last Read more […]

Singer Accuses TSA of Sexual Assault; TSA Disagrees

Morrisey claims a TSA agent grabbed his private areas for no real reason, but that is business as usual. Morrisey is a famous pop singer who claimes he was sexually assaulted by a TSA officer. He wrote about the incident on his blog: On leaving the US on 27 July I flew from San Francisco International Airport to London on flight BA 284. At 2:30 in the afternoon I went through the usual airport security procedure including the stand-up ‘scanner’, and all was well – no bleeps and nothing unusual. Before Read more […]

TSA Allows 73 People to Work at Airports with Known Links to Terrorism

Do you feel safer with TSA on the job? Really? They gave security credentials to 73 people with known links to terrorism. That’s right… 73 known to be the exact kind of people TSA is supposed to be protecting us from, yet the Department of Homeland Security gave them special access to places terrorists are trying to hit, and to the security procedures that would help anyone defeat what lame processes are in place. Also, according to NBC News, Further, the thousands of records used to vet Read more […]

Is It Rational to Be Personally Frightened about Terrorism? Or Just Politically Useful?

Fear of many other things should outweigh being frightened about terrorism. Are you frightened about terrorism? This graphic provides a bit of perspective on the real threats to your life—things we don’t spend nearly as much money allegedly trying to avoid. We’ve wasted how much on the Department of Homeland Security and the totally ineffective TSA that sexually batters Americans every single day? We’ve given up how much freedom and personal privacy to self-important bureaucrats and Read more […]

TSA Scores Five Percent When Tested

The TSA scores have declined during the last eight years from a 40 to 25 percent failing grade to a five percent failing grade. The TSA will never answer for their declining record because we already know they refuse to answer to Congress about it. In the past, they have classified their failures as “secret” so that they wouldn’t have to be held accountable for them. If we aren’t allowed to know how the TSA scores in providing for our security, then we have no choice but to keep submitting Read more […]

TSA Spits on Congress… because They Know They Can

The acting administrator of the TSA refuses Congressional request to answer questions about security problems. We don’t elect the head of the TSA or any other Federal Agency or Department. They don’t run for office. No one campaigns to get votes to become a TSA boss. But the decision-makers and managers at the TSA have the power to make decisions that massively impact our lives. They receive their paychecks from our taxes (or, at least, we are used as collateral for massive borrowing in Read more […]

Washington Post: Abolish the TSA!

Our need to abolish the TSA is getting mainstream attention. Granted, it was a guest editorial, not a publication of the Washington Post editorial board itself. Still, it is a hopeful sign that C. J. Ciaramella of the Washington Free Beacon was able to print his argument with the newspaper: “Abolish the TSA.” The article begins with the recent discovery that TSA agents molested men by tampering with the screening equipment so that a male agent had an excuse to fondle/search them. This Read more […]

The TSA Sexual Assault Scandal Is a Systemic Problem

A former employee has an interesting perspective on the TSA sexual assault scandal. Who would want to grope innocent citizens all day long? Yep, perverts. Thus, Time Magazine: “Former TSA Agent: Groping Scandal Is Business as Usual.” There are far too many federal hands on people’s private parts in airports The recent story of two Transportation Security Administration screeners at Denver International Airport manipulating full-body scanners in order to grope men’s crotches is disturbing, Read more […]

TSA Employees Fired Quietly for Sexual Assault

The TSA can’t worry about sexual assault; they have to prioritize the agency’s reputation. Let me speak to my male readers. If a strange man groped your genitals against your will, you would call that sexual assault. You might respond with force and/or with pressing charges in court. I think all my women readers would agree with your interpretation. Of course, I’ve referred to TSA gropings as sexual molestation ever since they started doing them. If you think I am exaggerating, this Read more […]
