10-Year-Old Girl Treated Like Terror Suspect at Airport Because of Juice Box

It’s something we all have to put up with if we have to fly on a plane. Once you get to the “security” checkpoint, the U.S. Constitution is no longer binding. Everyone is treated as a potential terrorist. There are no exceptions. Well, unless you might actually be a terrorist, in which case the TSA wouldn’t want to be guilty of racial profiling. They wouldn’t want to offend anyone. The Blaze reported: A forgotten Capri Sun juice pouch left inside a 10-year-old girl’s carry-on bag Read more […]

No More “Opting Out”: TSA Can Now Force You to Go Through Body Scanners

They can’t force you to go through the body scanners if you’re not trying to get on a plane. Some people have completely given up flying so they don’t have to deal with a Nazi-style police state at the airport where everyone is considered a potential terrorist and therefore subject to warrantless searches and seizures. Well, unless you actually look like a terrorist with a bomb strapped to your chest. In that case, searching that person would be racial profiling and constitute discrimination. Read more […]

TSA Allows Gun, Knife, Scissors, and Box Cutters Through Security

It’s a joke that they call this “security.” One guy forgot about his handgun in his carry-on bag. But the TSA didn’t see it. It was even in the front pocket: But maybe that was just an oversight. Obviously, the TSA have been trying to repair their image after that recent undercover operation found that the TSA have a 95% failure rate. Surely, by now they’ve learned their lesson, right? A team of four from NBC News decided to conduct their own undercover operation. They tried to Read more […]

Did the TSA Strip Search a 90-Year-Old Grandmother?

We have conflicting stories surrounding this incident. The 90-year-old’s son claims that when TSA screeners spotted an anomaly in his mother’s bra, they had her come to a secondary screening room where they instructed her to take off her shirt and bra. Afterwards, according to the son, his mother was left shaken. The anomaly they had picked up on was a hidden pocket sewn in her bra that served as a hidden compartment for extra cash in case her wallet was lost or stolen. Of course, the TSA Read more […]

Carly Fiorina Blasts TSA in Scathing Yelp Review

Carly Fiorina gave the TSA one star, because zero stars is not listed as an option. Yelp was hiding the review for whatever reason, but it’s still there. You just have to keep scrolling down and clicking on “continue reading other reviews that are not currently recommended.” Maybe it’s because her review comes across as a campaign ad. Even so, what she said was true. Eventually, you’ll see hers. And she’s given the TSA one star, although I’m sure she wished she could have given Read more […]

TSA Let Explosives Go through Security but Seize Traveler’s $75,000

It was reported recently that undercover federal agents tested the TSA’s security protocols by trying to get through (inert) explosives, weapons, and other contraband. Apparently, these undercover agents were successful about 95% of the time in getting these items passed security. That success pointed out the extreme failure of the TSA’s security protocols. But when there’s cash involved, they’re quick to find it, confiscate it, and announce it to the social media world, together with Read more […]

TSA Employed 73 People With “Links to Terrorism”

I’ve always thought that the TSA have been looking at the wrong people all along. They claim to be concerned about American passengers’ safety and preventing terrorist attacks by assuming that everyone traveling by plane is a potential terrorist. They never really cared about the people working for them. We already know that many TSA agents have been shown to be people of low moral character, easily bribed, and overall incompetent. It’s purely by the grace of God that we haven’t sustained Read more […]

Undercover Tests Reveal Huge Gaps in TSA Security

According to the results of recent undercover tests, TSA airport security measures are hugely ineffective: An internal investigation of the Transportation Security Administration revealed security failures at dozens of the nation’s busiest airports, where undercover investigators were able to smuggle mock explosives or banned weapons through checkpoints in 95 percent of trials, ABC News has learned. The series of tests were conducted by Homeland Security Red Teams who pose as passengers, Read more […]

Former TSA Lobbyist Now on TSA Appropriations Committee

Oh, the revolving door. How I hate thee. It’s becoming quite common for corporate lobbyists to get seats in key bureaucratic committees overseeing funding for their former employers (see: Comcast and the FCC or Monsanto and the FDA/EPA). The latest entry in that increasingly ballooning file involves the ever-repugnant TSA: Rapiscan Systems lobbied aggressively to win a major contract with the Transportation Security Administration to provide X-ray body scanners at airports, only to lose the Read more […]

The PATRIOT ACT is Still Abusive and Useless … Why Are We Still Talking About This?

According to a new report by the Inspector General, the PATRIOT ACT is still useless. That’s right: still. We pretty much already knew it was designed more to make us feel safe than be safe, but years after its initial ratification, it’s becoming more and more difficult to find any reason at all to keep it around: FBI agents can’t point to any major terrorism cases they’ve cracked thanks to the key snooping powers in the Patriot Act, the Justice Department’s inspector general said in Read more […]

TSA Agent Faked Cancer for 5 Years, Raked in $60,000 Worth in Paid Time Off

Some 2,240 hours of paid time off were actually donated to Atlanta TSA agent Marc Bess by co-workers, because everyone believed that he was suffering from abdominal cancer. That works out to 280 sick days given to him by sympathetic fellow TSA agents. For five years, he brought doctored doctors’ notes informing his superiors of his cancer and need for specific treatments that would require that he take time off. As it turns out, Bess was never diagnosed with cancer, and there’s no evidence Read more […]

Gay TSA Agent Manipulated System to Grope Attractive Men

As if we needed any more reason to hate the TSA, two agents have been dismissed recently for their involvement in “hand”-picking attractive men and manipulating the scanner to facilitate groping. The TSA requires pat-downs to be administered by officers of the same gender, which would be somewhat reassuring if homosexual TSA officers (and their willing accomplices) weren’t so prevalent: According to law enforcement reports obtained during the CBS4 investigation, a male TSA screener told a Read more […]
