Republican Takes Aim at TSA Airport Screening

TSA Desktop Image Makes Joke of Airport Screening of Children

What Democrat-Socialists/Big Government Spending Liberals
Never Bothered To Mention:

 Did you know, that the nations airports are not required to have TSA Screeners checking passengers at Security checkpoints?

The 2001 law creating the Transportation Security Agency, gave airports the right to opt out of the TSA program in favor of private screeners after a two year period.

Now with the TSA engulfed in controversy and hated by millions of weary and sometimes humiliated travelers, Rep. John Mica, R-FL who soon will be the Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, is reminding airports they have a choice.

Mica, one of the authors of the original TSA bill, has recently written to the heads of more than 150 airports nationwide suggesting that they opt out of the TSA screening.

“When the TSA was established, it was never envisioned that it would become a huge, unwieldy bureaucracy which was soon to grow to 67,000 employees. As TSA has grown larger, more impersonal and administratively top-heavy, I believe that it’s important that airports across the country consider utilizing the opt-out provision provided by law,” writes Congressman Mica.

XXX Full Body Imaging Scanners Purchased With Stimulus Money

TSA wannabe cops at LAX doing busy work

Two months ago, Dept of Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano with the diversion of Economic Stimulus Dollars–Slush Fund (that was supposedly used to create all those promised “shovel ready jobs” I digress) purchased hundreds of XXX Full Body Imaging Scanners–unsure how they helped to stimulate the economy?

If TSA wasn’t intrusive enough before, their newly established enhanced security groping of passengers and flights crews have been met with mounting resistance.

Who gave the government the right to trample on the 4th Amendment which guarantees that individuals are to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects from unreasonable search by agents of the federal government?

Ever since the TSA XXX Full Body Imaging Scanners were installed at airports, TSA has been telling passengers that Strict Privacy Safeguards are in place and that the images can not be stored, printed or saved.

We now learn that all this time the TSA were in fact lying and that all XXX Full Body Imaging Scanners be able to collect, retain, store and transmit passengers images without consent.

TSA Agent Newark Arrested For Stealing $400 From Passenger

TSA Agent is supposedly carrying out a pat down of a passenger at Newark Liberty Airport but instead is more interested in reading a card in the passenger’s hand than doing his job.

TSA Agents in Newark must have a tough time understanding their employment duties.

On the 03 February, a TSA Agent Newark was caught on surveillance video, reaching into the purse of an elderly woman in a wheelchair, to steal an envelope containing $400

TSA Agents create an illusion of safety and security, I’m unconvinced.

On the 17 February, I posted a photo here of a TSA Agent Sleeping in a Gate Area
