WikiLeaks has released an additional 250,000 diplomatic messages, causing governments around the world to do the mad scramble once again.

Most media sources are trying to discredit WikiLeaks, but here’s a few thoughts on this issue:

We’ve all heard that “if you’ve nothing to hide, then what are you afraid of” type of rebuttals.  You should not be afraid to be frisked, strip searched, have your computer hard drive read, have your electronic communications monitored, have your email archived by a three-letter agency, or live in a surveillance-based society “if you’ve nothing to hide“.

The same logic by these nanny-state admirers who have widely made these claims online would then also apply to our government and our alleged “diplomats” (who are revealed in the new leaks to actually be intelligence spies).  If they’ve nothing to hide, then they should not fear exposure on what they’ve been doing.  Honest and ethical governments do not hide behind “state secrets” privileges.

But oh boy oh boy, do they ever have plenty to hide.  They’re literally going ape-shit now over this latest leak.

Personally, I stand with WikiLeaks and always have.  Governments do a lot of very evil, very horrible and inhumane things in secret and it’s high time somebody with a real pair of balls stood up and exposed these rotten evil bastards for who and what they really are.

So I am going to flat-out ignore the hoopla over “state secrets” and “classified communications” and all that crap, just like I would a pile of dog shit on my living room floor.  Well, actually I’d clean up the mess, which is what we need to do here (but won’t) and beat the dog, which we won’t do either because we’re insouciant.  I’d leave the dog alone if this were my own fault, but like these secret releases, this isn’t my fault, so a good “beating” is (over) due.

Insouciant Americans simply won’t care one way or the other, or they’ll coddle up once again to their nanny-state protectors like starving piglets on a sows tit and decry the exposure.  Whatever.  I give up on all of them, they’re the reason our country is in the shitter.

Saudi Arabia (home to 16 of the 9/11 hijackers as I recall) is revealed to be the world’s leading terrorist supporters of Al Qaeda with the largest financial donations.  No “news” there to the non-insouciant.  Most interestingly, the United States just sold Saudi Arabia $60 billion dollars worth of high-tech weaponry.  This is the Hegelian Dialect, where the United States funds both sides of future (and present) conflicts, never mind that our own sons and daughters get caught in the crossfire.

The cables names Saudi donors as the biggest financiers of terror groups, and provide an extraordinarily detailed account of an agreement between Washington and Yemen to cover up the use of US planes to bomb al-Qaida targets.  US Embassy Cables Spark Global Diplomatic Crisis

What is most interesting to the little people is how these power-brokers deal in human lives, back-stabbing each other and lying about their roles and involvements, orchestrating the rise and fall of nations in the daily details and machinations they manipulate.

And now these lying sacks of shit get found out with their fingers in the cookie jar, all over the world.

These people are truly evil, the personification of corruption, immorality and inhumanity.  They do not care about us, you or me, all they care about, all they’ve EVER cared about is themselves and now they’re in another great panic, trying to cover their backsides and pretend that this exposure of their evil deeds is some great disaster.


The people of the Earth don’t care one way or the other.  All this hoopla is going to be over nothing and I know they know this.  They’re putting on an act, their “put-out face” as if they’re personally hurt or outraged when it’s all an act, from start to finish.  They already know that we are totally powerless to respond to these exposure of their evil deeds, that we have been utterly brainwashed into stampeding each other to death at Target or Wal-Mart or any other big box store on Black Friday.  The the whole scope of our concern is simply this: can we get a good deal?

The rest is all smoke and mirrors, as our so-called protectors and defenders of freedom and the Amerikan way are exposed for the lying, evil monsters that they really are.

So what?  I already knew this and so do many of my own readers.  Nothing will be done.  The media will go into warp-overdrive to downplay the revelations, with even more leaked “data” and exposures coming forthwith.  It’ll be interesting, but it won’t change anything.

And this is where WikiLeaks remains powerless.  We are far too stupid and helpless to help ourselves, even when we have clear evidence of our manipulation and lies by our slave-owners.  This is yet another “line in the sand” event that simply gets pushed back once again (and again and again and again) in an endless series of exposures and revelations that causes us to do nothing.

We are that far gone.  We could learn in a “secret release” or by televised announcement from the President himself that Americants are being secretly kidnapped and executed in prison camps around the world and this wouldn’t faze us one bit.  What do we care if this is already happening to other people in real life?  So what? We don’t care, and we won’t care when it starts happening to us either.  We are exactly in that place where our masters want us to be.

If you don’t realize how Nazi-like our country and culture has become, then you need a SERIOUS wake-up call.  We’ve fully arrived at the point where they can now cart people off in broad daylight and nobody will do anything.

I admire what WikiLeaks has done, and fully support these “revelations” and exposures of these evil doers.  I just wish it could have done some good, instead of attacking the messengers.  The world is much too ignorant, especially here in Amerika to even realize that the message is the issue, and always was.

Go read any of the comments on any article on the Net that exposes corruption, destruction, war, tyranny, torture, environmental collapse or the terrible deeds of Empire by an authentic, non co-opted author, and you will see that the majority of the people are so utterly brainwashed, so incredibly dumbed down in their ability to think, and their outright stonewall refusal to connect the dots, that whatever attempts the authors have made are falling on deaf ears, again and again and again.  It’s like beating on a granite mountain with a rubber hammer.

The true crisis that exists within our civilization today is us and what we have become, what we truly are now.  Our humanity has been abandoned in favor of instant gratification and greed.  We have committed ourselves to the pathways of insanity and insatiability.  The June 2009 “Beating My Head Against The Wall”  entry remains as accurate and true as ever.  I see absolutely nothing to change any of this, not even these latest leaks and who is truly behind the evil machinations going on in the world today.

I’m going to take a break from this blog once again.  I’m still working 7 days a week here and I need some time for myself.  Recently, I have had to put up with several ridiculous and absurd personal attacks which have tried my patience and my tolerance to the max.  They’ve only served to emphasize to me the overarching state of stupidity that exists in a sizeable portion of the Amerikan population.  As Steve Lendeman attests about American journalism

Overall, America’s major media fails the test. It’s biased, shameless, and irresponsible with “everything to sell and nothing to tell” as a noted US media critic once said. It delivers a daily diet of “managed news” (propaganda), infotainment, and “junk food news,” a worthless mix, treating people like mushrooms – well-watered, in the dark, and uninformed about what matters most. No wonder greater numbers opt out, consuming less broadcast “news” and print media, the kind no one should waste time or money on.

Our population, by and large remains just as shameless and irresponsible.  I remind everyone — you do have a choice.  To be intelligent, investigative, inquisitive and honest, or to remain a mushroom, consuming and feeding and excreting bullshit.

But personally, I think it is utterly hopeless.  I really, really do.  We’ve lost the present generation to ignorance, and most certainly the younger generation, which (obviously) leaves nothing whatsoever in the form of creativity, intelligence, honesty, ethics, morality, compassion, humanity, awareness, knowledge or involvement for the future.

From my own word –

But it is plainly evident that if the younger generation does not care about any of these issues, then there is no hope whatsoever for turning anything around.

And so it is.

Today signals a loud and clear message: America can no longer be saved from itself, in any way, shape or form.

The desperate attempts by thousands of grass root organizations, millions of blogs and alternative media are instantly overwhelmed by the sheer stampede of how the next generation truly feels about this country of ours.

Our loss of freedoms in America are a multi-generational problem, effecting everyone who is alive, living here and working here.  But it is plainly evident that if the younger generation does not care about any of these issues, then there is no hope whatsoever for turning anything around.

Black Friday, each year, proves this point. “Midnight Madness” is a disease of the connedsumer mindset, that believes that human animals must resort to violence in their constant quest for “a good deal”.  Lining up by the thousands and thousands outside of shopping malls, big box stores and retail outlets, these animals surge like lemmings over a cliff, to exchange borrowed credit in a failing economy for toys from the corporate gods.

Black Friday: Police called after customers rush door at Toys R Us near Appleton

Cerritos mall food court placed on lockdown after fight, reports of gunshots

Black Friday shopper arrested for arguing

Woman arrested for gun threat in shopping line, police say

We’re reminded constantly to behave ourselves, to line up like good little connedsumers and to politely pay our corporate masters for their useless junk.   No pushing, shoving, arguing, gun-waving or stampeding, please.

The message is clear: shop ’till you drop, and all is well with Amerika.  Just do it all politely.

This day is perhaps the most egregiousness example of how utterly gone this country truly is.  Totally forgotten is the overarching slave-status of this country’s working class of subservient citizens.  Instead, government and media champion this day as a national outing, where lemmings pack themselves like sardines into every retail outlet in the country.

For some businesses, this is a make or break day.  Huge sales must occur because this is how they designed their business model.  Many offer nothing more then trinkets and gaudy gifts for the upcoming other spectacle widely known as Christmas, where broken toys, broken hearts and disappointment await the even younger generation, who in turn will act exactly as their parents did – disinterested in anything real, anything valuable, anything that even smacks of self-responsibility or true citizenship.

The addiction to junk is dead obvious (must read), but even the adult and allegedly intelligent commentators don’t get it. Champion our ‘advancement’ with the gods of technology they totally forget that never have we been less free, more controlled and regulated and with less hope then at any other time in American history.

Americans are insouciant to the extreme (must read).  Utterly and totally incapable now of helping themselves and even figuring out how far they have fallen.

Insouciant synonyms: apathy, casualness, complacence, disinterestedness, disregard, incuriosity, incuriousness, indifference, nonchalance, torpor, unconcern.

The evidence abounds everywhere in this country, national opt-out day was a total failure as lemming lined up by the millions at airports around the country.  The truth is, we are now incapable — utterly incapable of helping ourselves, of standing up for freedom, of rejecting tyranny, the surveillance society or frankly, objecting to anything at all.  Our corporate masters have us all exactly where they want us, subservient, pliable and willing to accept anything that they demand.  We remain indifferent, incurious,  incapable of rousing ourselves from our torpor and unconcern.

We are addicted to self, the inner-man that has been so satiated with gluttonous greed and corruption that it is barely recognizable as being human anymore.  However, this was no accident at all, but deliberate campaign of psychological warfare waged against the majority of citizens of this planet. Only where there is no corporate control and the ubiquitous technology overlording the citizenry is there any semblance of true freedom left.

However, it does no good at all to constantly rail against any of this, of which I am not alone.  Many other websites and authors will do the same, but none of this does any good.  Far more interest and website traffic would be generated by putting up porn pictures or scandalous insider news on celebrities or movie stars.

Nothing makes a difference anymore.  Nothing, absolutely nothing at all. The greatest tragedy of all is that we can bear witness to our demises and even document the millions of decisions and actions that have caused this, but we cannot do anything at all about it, because the people refused.

Our future as a nation is now a colossal tombstone engraved with the graffiti of corporate logos. Our epitaph reads: Here lies Amerika, land of the fee and home of the slave.

America is over.  The new Amerika began decades ago and is now all that remains.   There are hardly any left alive now that can even remember how we got here.   Everyone else simply doesn’t care, they’re insouciant.

Nice set of charts and facts on the record levels of greenhouse gases:

The average mixing ratios of carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) reached record level in 2009,WMO reported.

* CO2 concentrations ~ 386.8 ppm
* CH4 ~ 1,803 ppb
* N2O ~ 322.5 ppb

These values are greater than the corresponding atmospheric concentrations in pre-industrial times (~1750) by 38%, 158% and 19%, respectively.

In the twenty year period between 1990 and 2009, the combined radiative forcing””the balance between atmosphere’s incoming and outgoing radiation””for all persistent greenhouse gases increased by 27.5%, with CO2 accounting for about 80% of the increase, according to the NOAA Annual Greenhouse Gas Index.

Atmospheric Greenhouse Gas At Record Levels

A 27% forcing in just twenty years is pretty huge.

The top 10 reasons why Americants refuse to wake up.  In no particular order:

1.  They voted in national (s)elections. This disempowering act only serves to strengthen the power of the status-quo and does nothing for the individual American or the respective States.

2. They still fly.  Submitting themselves to draconian invasions of privacy and being singled out for their sexual attraction, flying any American airline today is the same thing as saying “I submit”.

At what point will Americans finally stop losing more liberty and freedom?  With each passing year, the iron grip of the government gets even tighter, and each time it does we are told that it is either for “our safety” or for “national security”.  One can only imagine what is going to happen the next time there is any kind of “terror incident” on an airplane.  They are going to point to all those Americans who are complaining about “enhanced pat downs” and TSA groping as the reason why security is not tough enough.  So where does all this end?  Will we eventually all have to go through a body cavity search just to get on an airplane?  Will they start groping us at school, at work and at sporting events?  Are we going to have to “lock down” America from coast to coast to ensure that no terrorist ever is able to harm any American?

The way that we are going, we soon won’t have to worry about “terrorists” taking away our freedoms because they will already be gone.  Is any amount of “safety” worth living like this?  If America turns into one big prison camp where we are all prodded, poked, groped, watched, tracked and treated like sub-human slaves will it even be worth living in anymore?  22 Incredibly Revealing Quotes About Enhanced Pat Downs And TSA Groping

3. They pay their taxes.  Serving the plantation owners has never been easier in a myriad of ways.

4. They watch television.  This Weapon Of Mass Distraction is specifically designed to destroy cognitive ability and critical thinking skills in all ages.  Passing itself off by the major media as informational and entertaining, infotainment brainwash is geared towards the mental ability of four-year olds.

5. They still send their sons and daughters off to foreign wars. The willful slaughter of our own children is a crime that defies imagination. The only thing worse is the killing of the sons and daughters they’re sent to kill in the name of Empire.

6. They refuse to dismantle the Federal Reserve and issue lawful non-fiat money.  The control of the money supply has created a slave-labor class of subservient citizenry, incapable of doing anything more of simply running in place to stay alive.

7. They refuse to criminalize Wall Street. This crime syndicate has captured the thoughts and minds of millions and millions all around the entire globe with false promises of wealth and fortune while bankrupting the country coffers, deceiving millions and manipulating trillions of dollars for a wealthy few.

8. They bank with federally controlled banks.

9. They permit unlimited corporate expansion and control.  Now governing the very essence of life itself on the planet for all living beings, human and non-human alike, the corporations have become more then multinationals, but entities that transcend even multinational borders and govern the fate and future of all life on this planet.

10. They still live here.

This list could be easily expanded to 20 or 100 or even 1000 “Top Reasons”, such as our blatant refusal acknowledge global warming,  foreign occupations, outsourcing American jobs, the largest prison population in the world, the worlds largest arms industry and many many more real life examples of what has been occurring in America.

Americants refuse to wake up. Nothing it seems, not even a false-flag terrorist attack on their own soil, with thousands of Americans dead, and with all the evidence pointing to an inside job can wake them from their slumber.

TSA Gestapo Empire

It doesn’t take a bureaucrat long to create an empire. John Pistole, the FBI agent who took over the Transportation Security Administration on July 1 told USA Today 16 days later that protecting trains and subways from terrorist attacks will be as high a priority for him as air travel.

It is difficult to imagine New Yorkers being porno-screened and sexually groped on crowed subway platforms or showing up an hour or two in advance for clearance for a 15 minute subway ride, but once bureaucrats get the bit in their teeth they take absurdity to its logical conclusion. Buses will be next, although it is even more difficult to imagine open air bus stops turned into security zones with screeners and gropers inspecting passengers before they board.

Will taxi passengers be next?  In those Muslim lands whose citizens the US government has been slaughtering for years, favorite weapons for retaliating against the Americans are car and truck bombs. How long before Pistole announces that the TSA Gestapo is setting up roadblocks on city streets, highways and interstates to check cars for bombs?


Subsequent domestic terrorist events have turned out to be FBI sting operations in which FBI agents organize not-so-bright disaffected members of society and lead them into displaying interest in participating in a terrorist act.  Once the FBI agent, pretending to be a terrorist, succeeds in prompting all the right words to be said and captured on his hidden recorder, the €œterrorists€ are arrested and the €œplot€ exposed.

The very fact that the FBI has to orchestrate fake terrorism proves the absence of real terrorists.

If Americans were more thoughtful and less gullible, they might wonder why all the emphasis on transportation when there are so many soft targets.  Shopping centers, for example. If there were enough terrorists in America to justify the existence of Homeland Security, bombs would be going off round the clock in shopping malls in every state. The effect would be far more terrifying than blowing up an airliner.

Indeed, if terrorists want to attack air travelers, they never need to board an airplane.

All they need to do is to join the throngs of passengers waiting to go through the TSA scanners and set off their bombs. The TSA has conveniently assembled the targets.

Definitely recommended reading, it points out the incredible flaws in the total terrorist lie being propagated by every foul-spewing media disinformation source in the country.

Make up your own mind.  What terrifies you the most.  Terrorists, who in all likelihood you will never encounter in your lifetime, or the TSA that you will encounter every time you fly and soon, according to Pistole, every time you take a train, a subway, or drive in a car or truck?

I have lost all hope of Americants “making up their own mind”.  They have already demonstrated that inability and their decision on what they want.

They prefer a police-state.  They believe the blatant lies and want a nanny-state-protector to cuddle, coddle, and fondle them for their imagined “security”.  They believe in boogie-men, monsters under their beds and ghosts in their closets.

Unable to grow up and face reality, they have let this country become something right out of Nazi Germany in a time span that would make your head spin.

This is not the country I grew up in.

This big news:

St. Petersburg, Russia – China and Russia have decided to renounce the US dollar and resort to using their own currencies for bilateral trade, Premier Wen Jiabao and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin announced late on Tuesday. China, Russia Quit Dollar

Undoubtedly, this is going to lead to a further collapse of the US currency / market / lifestyle / cost of living.  The two other largest countries in the world basically just said “We’re done” supporting Empire.

This is huge.

I think it is dead obvious what is going on here in America — the rapid march to a totalitarian police state under the guise of “security”.

The very notion of terrorists in our midst using public transportation systems, entering into public buildings is not based upon any facts whatsoever.  It’s sheer mindless sheepwashing.

The hoopla over the airport underwear sniffing was the rather poorly managed way to soften up Americants to what comes next:  Courthouses, trains, boats, metro, busses, and other public places will now have “full body scanners” installed.

“The next step in tightened security could be on U.S. public transportation, trains and boats.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says terrorists will continue to look for U.S. vulnerabilities, making tighter security standards necessary.

€œ[Terrorists] are going to continue to probe the system and try to find a way through,€ Napolitano said in an interview that aired Monday night on “Charlie Rose.” Next step for body scanners could be trains, boats, metro

Two state courthouses in Colorado have already deployed full-body scanners that use radiowaves that can detect all objects on a person, including paper. Full-body scanners popping up at courthouses

This is the real reason the TSA is not backing down — they’ve been ordered not to.  And we already know by who.

You have a tiny, tiny TINY chance yet remaining to stop this.  If we miss this last opportunity, you know what happens next.

The terrorists have learned our tactics and have now resorted to using private transportation.  To combat this threat, we are going to begin performing random vehicle checks on America’s highways and streets with mobile scanners used to detect bombs, guns or other destructive devices“.

Far-fetched?  Hardly.  They’re already doing this:

The encroaching Big Brother nightmare has escalated even further with a recent announcement that the U.S. government has purchased mobile X-ray vans to scan people and vehicles at sporting events, road stops and even at random. The initiative is part of alleged counter-terror efforts that include improving the ability to detect bombs, weapons and other contraband that may potentially be used in a terrorist attack.

Feds deploy mobile X-ray fleet to radiate, scan Americans

And when this doesn’t turn up the “expected results”?

The terrorists are now hiding in homes in our neighborhoods, threatening our safety and security.  To mitigate this threat, we are going to start performing random home checks of suspected terrorist activity or connections throughout America.  Our goal is to make America safe for Americans, and we are sure that Americans will agree with this need. We will be looking for the usual suspects of course, including bomb making chemicals or explosive devices, firearms or weapons caches, stockpile food or anything that a terrorist might use to harm Americans.  We ask all Americans to cooperate with this security initiative and report any suspicious activity that needs our investigation.”

Far-fetched?  It’s already happening:

Be on the lookout, warn the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Counterterrorism Center, for such €œindicators of possible terrorist activity€ as €œbehavior that could indicate participation in surveillance of potential targets,€ €œtravel or interest in traveling overseas to attend violent extremist institutions or paramilitary camps,€ or checking out €œwebsites and reading materials that advocate violence and then initiating action in support of this activity.€ See something? Say something!  Doc of the Day: Feds’ Guide To Snitching on Your Terrorist Neighbor


US planning to recruit one in 24 Americans as citizen spies

The Terrorism Information and Prevention System, or TIPS, means the US will have a higher percentage of citizen informants than the former East Germany through the infamous Stasi secret police. The program would use a minimum of 4 per cent of Americans to report “suspicious activity”.


Down the Memory Hole:  Operation TIPS Website Deleted.  At some point prior to 20 November 2002, the federal government deleted the portion of the Citizen Corps Website dealing with the citizen-snitch program Operation TIPS.  This was undoubtedly because the Homeland Security Act, which had passed the House at that point, specifically canned TIPS.  Section 808 of the act, which became federal law, states:  “Any and all activities of the Federal Government to implement the proposed component program of the Citizen Corps known as Operation TIPS (Terrorism Information and Prevention System) are hereby prohibited.”  (Of course, this doesn’t prohibit a similar program with a different name from being created.)

There is much, much more available for anyone who is interested enough to look this up.  The agenda is clear, the future never looked so dim.

A new study reports that Wi-Fi (wireless antenna signals) are damaging trees: Wi-Fi Makes Trees Sick, Study Says

What is more interesting at the moment, is the comments posted to this article.  Self-prescribed ‘experts’ deny the evidence reported, while others support it.

I do know that a new study just came out that cell phone usage is dangerous by more and more researchers. Having a cell phone anywhere near your body and especially your head is considered dangerous.  They suggest keeping it at least 1 inch away from any part of your body.

But the same crowd of technophobe denialist will also claim that none of this is true, while pointing to the rise in brain cancers as some other cause (which could be true).  But this still doesn’t change the results of the studies performed.

Biological beings – trees, fish, mammals, humans, even bugs or bacteria, are not immune from electromagnetic radiation, which is always the final refuge of the denialist.

If they were actually immune, they would have survived and we would already know of their existence today through the many fields of science.  But we don’t — science has not found any organism that is immune to such radiation.  Various levels of effects and harm have long been measured. In today’s world, our increasing use of electromagnetic radiation has to be honestly considered as “not harmless”.

Nov 232010

The saga continues, yet with a new host of complaints:

‘It is not comfortable to come to work knowing full well that my hands will be feeling another man’s private parts, their butt, their inner thigh,’ one told the BoardingArea blog.

‘Even worse is having to try and feel inside the flab rolls of obese passengers and we seem to get a lot of obese passengers!’

Another said he had a huge problem dealing with a ‘large number of passengers… daily that have a problem understanding what personal hygiene is.’ TSA Staff Vents

A couple observations:

a) this is an English newspaper.  The American media may pick this up — or not, but often the news we actually need, is not published here (that’s a hint).

b) the alleged ‘security procedures’ that claim to make this all necessary is to ensure passenger safety, ie., nobody is carrying a bomb, etc.  Yet the TSA is now factually and literally “feeling people up” and putting their hands in people groins inside their pants and inside their underwear.

Does ANYBODY believe that a bomb, gun, knife, box cutter or anything more dangerous then a skidmark is actually going to be found inside someone’s butt crack?

You can always buy this to hide your private parts (but I do not recommend it, they’d simply strip you naked).  Just stop flying and save your money.

Of course not, which means the real agenda is something else entirely.  I’ve already shared what it is.

TSA employee accused of kidnap, assault

A TSA employee remained hospitalized today after being accused of kidnapping a young female in Atlanta, then taking her to his Hogansville residence and sexually assaulting her.Randall Scott King, whose age and street address were not given, abducted the woman Wednesday evening from a MARTA parking lot at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, police said.
Yeah, well this is horrible but what did anybody expect? The TSA has already been caught targeting “hot woman” as I’ve blogged earlier and now this.

Ok then, expect a massive outcry against the TSA to grow into a total fury.  About damned time.  But be careful — there is always a Hegelian Dialect at work with our masters.  They create a problem and then offer us the solution that they wanted all along.

What will it be?

More “safety and security” measures of course!

If you want to ponder the thought that we are all be “played”, you would be quite right.

Watch and see.

Nov 222010

The headline say’s it all — from the TSA’s point of view.  So far, they’re not backing down, but here’s a few pointers / tips / tricks that can be utilized:

From the article

“Just one or two recalcitrant passengers at an airport is all it takes to cause huge delays,” said Paul Ruden, a spokesman for the American Society of Travel Agents, which has warned its more than 8,000 members about delays resulting from the body-scanner boycott. “It doesn’t take much to mess things up anyway “especially if someone purposely tries to mess it up.”

Let me define “they” so you will understand what your fighting against.  They is the TSA and the airlines.  The airlines have “say” over who they use for their security.  The TSA has this charge for the time being.

To effectively put pressure on “they” — delaying flights, losing money and “mess things up” (words by the TSA himself) would be pretty easy to do.

The TSA “claims” that they are looking for bombs, weapons and that sort of thing.  You are suspected of having one in your underwear.  I am not being facetious here.

Instead of using bomb-sniffing dogs to simply walk up and down the lines (very efficient) they want to grope your private parts, search your bra and fondle your children (who are also suspected of having bombs in their underwear or diapers).

The entire notion of “making passengers safe” must be met with total scorn and disbelief. The threat of a terrorist attack on an airplane is virtually nil.  The right thing they (finally) did after much disagreement was to arm the pilots. Other then that, bomb-sniffing dogs are the only other thing they still need.  The rest of this fiasco is all about money.

Didn’t you know that Obama met with the CEO of OSI Systems?

Deepak Chopra, chairman and CEO of OSI Systems and no relation to the New Age spiritualist, was one of a number of CEOs who traveled with the president on his three-day trip to India, which focused primarily on expanding business ties between the US and the emerging Asian power.

That a manufacturer of body scanners accompanied the US president on a foreign trip shows the extent of the ties between the industry and the US government. With anger growing at the intrusive news screening procedures, many observers have focused attention on Michael Chertoff, the former Homeland Security secretary whose consultancy, the Chertoff Group, counts OSI as a client.

Your country and its leaders have betrayed you.  I have always said, “follow the money”.  The men and woman appointed over the Fatherland look like something right out of Nazi Germany.  By design?  I have no idea. What is more important and relevant is what they are trying to do here in the Homeland.

So what have they done?  More appropriately, what have they not done?  They have not respected your rights, or your freedoms, and they declare that travel, all forms of travel, is only a privilege.

The [DHS] OIG doesn’t consider the statutory, Constitutional, and international treaty-law right to travel, referring at one point to €œthe privilege of boarding an aircraft€

This defies of course, common sense.  By arbitrarily declaring this mode of travel as a privilege, they have opened Pandora Box to all forms of travel as a “privilege”, something that has been building in case law for a long time.  Wait, watch and see if you do not believe this.  They’ve already compiled secret government list with over 2 million names on them.

Every government that has imposed totalitarian rules told its populace that it was doing so to “uphold freedom” or “improve the security of the homeland” or “root out terrorists and subversives.”  These ends do not justify unconstitutional means.  We uphold freedom by exercising it €“ not by restricting it.  Papers Please

Few really believe that we have already lost this country. I have long wondered exactly what it would take to demonstrate this fact.  Our so-called “line in the sand” has been pushed back countless of times.  We are in full-retreat, effectively and tactically it has been a rout.

My question for the day is will this go on forever?

Nov 212010

“TSA officials say that anyone refusing both the “full body scanners” and the “enhanced pat down” procedures will be taken into custody.

Once there the detainees will not only be barred from flying, but will be held indefinitely as suspected terrorists, face fines of up to $11,000 and may also be turned over to local police. One sheriff’s office said they were already preparing to handle a large number of detainees and plan to treat them as terror suspects, held until they are convinced they don’t pose a terror threat.”  TSA: Travelers Who Refuse Scanning Can’t Leave, Will Be Fined

Ah, now we come to the heart of the matter, what this was all about all along. It takes very, very little these days to be a “suspected terrorists” in this screwed up country of ours.

Didn’t you know?  Grandma is a terrorist!  So is your little boy and baby daughter.  Anybody who refuses to submit to these invasive procedures demanded by the pedophiles at the TSA is now declared a terrorist.

If these employees of the TSA had a shred of decency and self-respect among them, they’d quit their jobs on the spot.

Yes Virginia, it can get worse, and as each day goes by, it does.  They are redefining the entire dictionary now – terrorism is now “refusal”.  The TSA is “Total Submission Authority”.

Fondling becomes “law”, radiation becomes “protection”, strip searches become “necessary” and any signs of human decency has become “disobedience”.

They’re getting the jail cells ready people.  No real reason, just the bogus claims of “terrorism”.

Stay the hell away from the airport if you know what is good for you.  These places are obviously going to be where they start the mass roundup of American citizens.

Reuters is reporting a 96% vote from people who are claiming they’d change their travel plans now. I am not at all sure I actually believe this — people are still flying.  If this vote was real (last check there were about 77,786 votes) then only 2138 or so people would have gotten on an airplane (1,156 undecided), something that would have already shut down every airport in the entire country.

But the reality is very different, indicating that the opposite is still true, because people are still lining up at the airports, so take this poll with a large dose of reality.

It’s cheap and easy to vote online (and a waste of time) or sign a petition, but putting your travel plans on the line and maybe your freedom, it’s going to cost you something.

Well, nothing in life is free, not anymore.  Get used to it.  It’s time to knuckle down, ’cause there’s a bad rain coming. The war for your life is now on.

Oh, Congress is exempt (of course).  Don’t look to these clowns suits for guidance or support.

Meanwhile, Obama just sold the largest arms deal in U.S. history to the Saudis.  Nothing to see here, move along.
