TSA


Have you ever had a negative experience going through TSA security at an airport? A professional acquaintance of mine also had a very humiliating experience with the TSA.  On one of his travels, he was taken into a room and forced to strip completely naked in front of complete strangers because he set off the …

A Muslim teenager was arrested for bringing a clock he built to class — which teachers thought might have been a dangerous device. It was not part of a science class.

So all that patting, pinching and probing you’ve put up with for years just to get on board what amounts to a transit bus with wings surely has made U.S. airlines  among the safest in the world, right? Wrong. In fact, that statement is so wrong that the head of the TSA has been sent …

Over the past ten years, we’ve heard hundreds of horror stories involving TSA agents. Grandmothers, nuns, moms and girls have been groped and molested by TSA agents.

Has America become so afraid of offending Muslims that they turn their attention to other ethnic or religious groups like Jews?

The Commissars of the Transportation Security Administration have authorized themselves to work in train stations. Instead of manning check points, they are randomly raiding stations and searching and groping victims selected by chance. And the cancer is spreading elsewhere as well. According to the New York Times’ propaganda piece, it is wreaking “security” on “sporting …

On CNN’s home page yesterday, the teaser headline was prominently displayed: “STEALING, SLEEPING, THIS IS THE TSA?” It led to this story: “A new government report says misconduct by Transportation Security Administration workers has increased more than 26% in the last three years. Some of the most serious violations include: Employees sleeping on the job, …

Have you ever experienced a pat down by a TSA agent while flying somewhere?  I don’t fly often, but I’ve had pat downs twice.  One was minor but the other was enough to inflict pain and discomfort of my genitals.  The TSA agent ran his hand up into my groin quite rapidly and it felt …
