TSA: The Stanford Experiment Goes Live

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I find it more than strange that the government knows exactly who I am if I owe taxes, if I get a ticket, when I apply for a drivers license, or in a myriad of other settings….but suddenly has amnesia when I attempt to board a plane. Now, by October 1, 2018, thanks to the failure of the Minnesota legislature, who, in pursuit of Federal largesse, failed to act to protect Minnesota residents from federal encroachment and over-reach, I must have a biometric marked ID or passport to board a plane. And TSA is now installed in many train stations and bus stations.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You need to biometrically brand me? I need a passport to travel in my own country? You’ve been tracking me since the day I was born and suddenly you can’t be sure who I am? This after admitting that allegedly 20 million or more people have entered the US illegally, many working under assumed names, fake ID’s and millions who have simply disappeared into the country?

A recent trip that included destinations in five states, resulted in me and thousands of other individuals, being subjected to invasive assaults from TSA officers under the guise of “keeping us all safe”. The question that comes to mind immediately after these assaults is: Who is going to keep us safe from the TSA?

By far, the worst experience was at the Lindbergh terminal in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This airport is a study in chaos, mismanagement and particularly venomous TSA agents. Of course, if you are one of those individuals convinced that even after passing through the scanners that for some reason you must now be groped, patted, grabbed, mashed, and verbally assaulted by these otherwise unemployable individuals who are now sporting a uniform and a badge, I assume this physical assault is just fine.

After all, almost 20 years ago they blew up buildings with planes in New York. I was reminded of this at the Lindbergh terminal after having my hands swabbed with a strip used to detect dangerous chemicals. Having had this done numerous times on numerous trips, when the agent swabbed my hands and told me to move on….I did. I did not realize that a new step in this process had been added and that included yet another agent located to my right about 12 feet away, in a small cubicle with a scanner for analysis of the strip. (In other airports this scanner is right there by the agent who swabs you) As I moved to the left to retrieve my purse from the bin, I heard a woman screaming: “Don’t you dare! You get yourself over here! Don’t even think about it! You get yourself over here right now!”

I, of course, looked around to see not only who was screaming, but whom was she screaming at? You guessed it! It was me! As I walked towards her I asked her why she was screaming. She went on a diatribe about how I had to stand there until the analysis was finished, and I better not move until it was complete. Being me, I of course expressed my disgust with this type of behavior, knowing it to be an intimidation tactic and also totally unnecessary. Then comes MR.TSA!! He ran over to where I was and immediately went into a soliloquy about how buildings were blown up in this country and it could happen again and their job was to make sure it didn’t. He ended with saying he thought about this every day. Doubtful Mr. TSA, very doubtful. (PS: I didn’t blow up any buildings in New York or anywhere else for that matter, but you already knew that) More

Dear America: What the hell happened to us?

“Our government has done more to harm us than any supposed terrorists could have done. They have and are taking our freedom away a day at a time. We are now under constant surveillance and spied on by government agencies. We cannot write an email, text a friend, drive down the road, board a plane, talk on our phones or even shop without our messages being intercepted and logged, our calls being recorded, our license plates being scanned, our face    being photographed and our fingerprints and dna collected at every conceivable opportunity.  So who is it that the government is really afraid of? Some supposed terrorist “over there”,…..or…YOU?”

The View from a Political Atheist

After years of writing about the egregious conduct of the federal and state governments, and, after watching the public sitting idly by while our rights are violated especially under this bogus “war on terror”, I have to wonder what happened to us? Maybe the better question is….what happened to so many of you? When did you lose your sense of who you are and where you come from, and what that should represent? Why are so many so quick to label those who are sounding the alarms that something has gone terribly wrong, as being “conspiracy theorists?” Or maybe, leftists, or neo-cons, communists, etc… These labels and others like them serve no purpose but to keep us divided and warring amongst our selves while those orchestrating our demise continue their insidious work. In the end, they all coalesce into the same group. That political divide that so many of us love to argue, is an illusion.

As a political atheist, I firmly believe that if a politician’s lips are moving and sound is coming out…there is a good chance they are lying to us.

We are the terrorists we fear More

171-0620085940The FBI currently has more than 40,000 US citizens on its list of who they are afraid of. Think about that number for a minute. How realistic do you believe that number is? How likely do you believe it is that 40,000 US citizens are possibly preparing to become active terrorists at any given moment? And, with this list growing each day how possible do you believe it is that an actual terrorist could be identified in the mountain of useless information that is gathered each day? Now add in the 760,000 thousand international individuals also listed. Did your head just implode with the realization that this is not a realistic or manageable system? The FBI couldn’t identify a terrorist in this mess even if one were to stand on the street holding a sign in front of their offices.

The FBI conducted 23 million background checks for guns last year, the most ever, so expanded back ground checks is not really the issue. They obviously are already doing that. What the FBI and many politicians want is the right for the FBI to void due process (which they are also doing). In other words, you are guilty if they say so….no real evidence needed. 

NOTE**

In Oklahoma, the bombing of the Murrah building did not elicit calls for banning or limiting the use of fertilizer, supposedly the main component for the explosion, or for expanded back ground checks on those purchasing fertilizer. 168 people were killed.

When 9/11 happened…..why were there no calls to limit or ban box cutters for that matter. More than 3,000 people died.

These people, and many others in supposed “terrorist” attacks, were all murdered by terrorists and the governments response in each situation is to attack the natural rights and liberties of law abiding citizens, trashing our constitutional rights. Next comes a massive expansion of police state agencies whose focus appears to be on everyone, except the possible terrorists. More

Note: There is not one police vehicle or sheriff’s vehicle in the country that bears any identifying information as to where that vehicle originates from, such as city name or county. Neither does any law enforcement vehicle bear the “To Protect and Serve” banner on its side. All that silly nonsense has been done away with. Law enforcement vehicles now simply say “POLICE” or “SHERIFF”. And everyone of them is under the direction of Homeland Security.”

stupidHere we go again! The creation of fictionalized threats used to coerce Americans into accepting tyrannical laws, assaults on their liberty and to submit and comply if they want the government to keep them safe (you do want to be safe don’t you??) from some contrived threat that we find out at a later date came from that same government, is on a full roll.

There is a new “terror” threat just in time for the presidential elections and what I suspect will be upcoming legislation making police executions of private citizens perfectly legal, with no legal recourse for the public. Not that there is much of a chance now of any justice in these situations. This will also come in really handy when the government unconstitutionally commits us to the UN Small Arms Treaty that calls for the disarmament of Americans.

Oh! And this new “threat” is supposedly due in large part to the Black Lives Matter movement.  How dare the black community try to assert that their lives have value and worth!   Never mind that black people are routinely executed by police almost daily. No, its just that black people hate the police. Hmmm.

Supposedly, this is a Democrat associated movement also. Like the Republican faction of the one party system in DC isn’t fully on board with the whole mess, also.

These new threats also seem geared to countering the bad publicity law enforcement agencies across the country have brought on themselves now that they have been militarized, and their propensity for executing American citizens for little to no reason has been so well documented.

Ohhh…Not again!

Using decidedly terrorist sounding names will scare the beetlejuice out of most Americans. But we need to start asking…….Who are these so-called terrorists, actually”

Disasters Much Bigger than San Bernardino: What Candidates Need to Talk about

4 Comments

new-logo25Jane M. Orient, M.D.

Some candidates including Trump and Cruz support the right of Americans to own effective tools of self defense. But none are talking about the long-standing official government stance of keeping Americans as vulnerable hostages to nuclear weapons.

It is terrible that Americans can get shot at a Christmas party, but much worse will happen if we don’t confront the problems beginning at the top.

________________________________________________________________

After every shooting episode the response is the same formula: constant media coverage, much of it fact-free, and calls for thoughts, prayers—and still more gun control. It’s time to take a broader perspective than a focus on the dozens of individual tragedies.

Today, Americans are targets. Not just individual Americans, but also the United States of America. They are targeted by deranged individuals, by fanatical ideologues, by drug cartels, by terrorist organizations, and by foreign powers, some of whom have intercontinental ballistic missiles with multiple independently targeted nuclear warheads aimed at American cities.

Our thoughts need to turn to what is really going on, and our prayers need to include “God save the United States of America.”

We have pervasive surveillance of our financial transactions, our telephone and electronic communications, our medical records, and our movements. The government has enormous powers of search and seizure, many unthinkable to drafters of our Fourth Amendment, and these are used against Americans engaged in normal business that threatens no one. We already have lots of gun control laws.

So how were terrorists in San Bernadino able to accumulate bomb-making material, an arsenal of weapons both legal and illegal, and body armor, without spurring any action by the authorities?

Terrorists have also engaged in operations that don’t yet have any poster children but that are far more dangerous than shooting up a Christmas party, such as disabling a key electrical substation. This shows the capacity for coordinated, sophisticate operations that could cripple the electricity grid for a long time.

Candidates such as Donald Trump and Ted Cruz call for controlling illegal immigration—surely necessary, but insufficient. The San Bernardino terrorists were here legally.

Here are the real issues that we need to discuss:

Americans are mostly helpless victims. The government that is supposed to protect us, though awesomely powerful, appears to be incompetent, corrupt, or—dare we suggest it?—on the other side.Americans are divided by a culture of grievances.America is dangerously weak.Foreign policy is recklessly provocative.

Brussels and the French Disconnection

Think about this……

There is a master plan to take away every piece of liberty and unalienable right of the people which includes private property in every Nation State in the world. Yes, and America is included in this mix.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To better understand where the world is today, here is a historical perspective. Thomas Jefferson warned America of the Belgium Brussels Bankers 200 years ago. Now, let’s connect the dots. Besides creating enormous debt throughout the world, these slave masters of The Eiffel Tower Photo1Brussels, along with the Brussels “European Commission”, are now using the French/Muslim crises to kick start the disarming of private citizens in the entire Euro- Zone. This is the beginning of the not so new master plan which “just happened” to be ready when the right crises came along.

Brussels has but one agenda which is two fold. Create money out of thin air and charge interest thereby building a larger and more powerful elite kingdom, while disarmament then becomes the EU bankers, ace in the hole, disallowing the people’s ability to keep
Brussels and the European Union in check. More

The Official Version of 9/11 goes something like this:

The Official Version of 9/11 goes something like this:

Directed by a beardy-guy from a cave in Afghanistan, nineteen hard-drinking, coke-snorting, devout Muslims enjoy lap dances before their mission to meet Allah. Using nothing more than craft knifes, they overpower cabin crew, passengers and pilots on four planes.

And hangover or not, they manage to give the world’s most sophisticated air defence system the slip.

Unfazed by leaving their “How to Fly a Passenger Jet” guide in the car at the airport, they master the controls in no-time and score direct hits on two towers, causing THREE to collapse completely.

The laws of physics fail, and the world watches in awe as asymmetrical damage and scattered low temperature fires cause steel-framed buildings to collapse symmetrically through their own mass at free-fall speed, for the first time in history.

Despite their dastardly cunning and superb planning, they give their identity away by using explosion-proof passports, which survive the destruction of steel and concrete and fall to the ground where they are quickly discovered lying on top of the mass of debris.

Meanwhile in Washington…………………

Hani Hanjour, having previously flunked Cessna flying school, gets carried away with all the success of the day and suddenly finds incredible abilities behind the controls of a jet airliner. Instead of flying straight down into the large roof area of the Pentagon, he decides to show off a little. Executing an incredible 270 degree downward spiral, he levels off to hit the low facade of the Pentagon. Without ruining the nicely mowed lawn and at a speed just too fast to capture on video.

In the skies above Pennsylvania……………………….

Desperate to talk to loved ones before their death, some passengers use sheer willpower to connect mobile calls that would not be possible until several years later.

During these events………………………………………….

President Bush continues to read “My Pet Goat” to a class of primary school children.

In New York……………………………………………………..

World Trade Center leaseholder Larry Silverstein blesses his own foresight in insuring the buildings against terrorist attack only six weeks previously.

In Washington……………………………………………………

The Neoconservatives are overjoyed by the arrival of the “New Pearl Harbor,” the necessary catalyst for launching their pre-planned wars.
