Senate Passes Bill Allowing Airports To Evict TSA Screeners

Senate Passes Bill Allowing Airports To Evict TSA Screeners

Legislation could lead to despised federal agency being marginalized from aviation security

Paul Joseph Watson
Tuesday, February 7, 2012

The Senate has passed legislation that includes a provision allowing airports to replace TSA screeners with private security, opening the door for the widely loathed federal agency to be marginalized from aviation security altogether.

The bill was primarily concerned with how the Federal Aviation Authority would be funded for the next four years, but also included measures that would force the TSA to reconsider applications from airports to replace TSA workers with their own privately hired screeners.

“Security companies would have an easier time winning contracts to operate airport checkpoints,” reports Businessweek.

Following a massive nationwide backlash against the TSA’s invasive groping policies and its use of radiation-firing naked body scanners, linked by many prestigious health bodies to cancer, an increasing number of airports attempted to take responsibility for their own screening procedures by replacing TSA workers with privately hired personnel.

However, in January 2011, when the number of airports attempting to opt-out of the TSA had risen to 16, TSA head John Pistole put a freeze on the process, refusing to consider new applications from airports.

The newly approved legislation “would require the TSA to reconsider applications for private screeners that it had rejected.”

Should airports choose to replace TSA screeners with their own private security, it would not only mean the screeners were better trained and more responsible for their actions, alleviating the problems of thefts and abuse by TSA workers, but it would also create tens of thousands of much needed jobs for the private sector.

“Some airport executives have argued that contract security personnel are more courteous than government workers,” reports CNN. “It was felt that a private contractor would provide friendlier customer service to the traveling public,” the head of a Roswell, New Mexico, airport wrote to Congress.”

A November 2010 poll found that the TSA’s “enhanced pat downs,” some of which include touching genitalia, angered 57% of regular adult fliers.

West Yellowstone Airport in Montana has already replaced its TSA screeners with private security. Bert Mooney Airport, also in Montana, and Orlando Sanford International Airport in Florida will also be able to have their rejected applications to evict the TSA reconsidered under the new law.

Resentment towards the TSA has raged over the last two years amongst Americans, primarily as a result of the rampant criminality in which TSA workers habitually engage. The latest example concerns TSA agent Alexandra Schmid, who stole $5,000 in cash from a passenger’s jacket as he was going through security at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

The TSA’s habit of never admitting wrongdoing even when caught has also riled the traveling public. Even when the agency was forced to apologize for strip-searching two women in their 80′s just before Christmas, the TSA claimed its agents had merely violated protocol, when in fact they had sexually molested the women by forcing them to undress.
This woman cooperated in every way and yet she was eventually forced to have a strip search

Full body scans are supposed to negate the need for patdowns and strip searches, this is what we are being told now that Sydney airport has the new scanners.

They told us that shit as well. Also they allowed the Muslims a pass on patdowns and scans. I'll let you figure it out why.

TSA Pervs Strip-Search Elderly Travellers

(Dec. 6, 2011) International terrorists aren't the top target of TSA agents at New York's JFK Airport.

Authorities working for the Transportation Security Administration have set their sights on the elderly, with a trio of elderly travelers reporting intrusive searches in the span of days.

Three elderly women from South Florida tell reporters that they were humiliated by excessive security screenings at New York's John F Kennedy International Airport last week, all over the span of just a few days and all in the same terminal.

Lenore Zimmerman of Coconut Creek, Florida was the first to make claims, telling the New York Daily News that she was stripped naked and searched by an overzealous TSA agent while trying to travel to Fort Lauderdale. She says she asked to bypass the controversial advanced image technology scanners in fear that it would trigger problems with her defibrillator, though she didn't expect that the outcome would turn terrifying.

"They took me into a private screening room and pulled my pants down and then pulled down my underwear," Zimmerman, 85, tells the Daily News.
This is Mrs. Zimmerman

Maybe the scanners might trigger any RF detonated explosive they conceal, and the pat down may set off the land mines they carry?? Shit, i don't know....

Re: Senate Passes Bill Allowing Airports To Evict TSA Screeners

first of all, Janet Napolitano fucking disgusts me.
secondly, these naked body scanners have just become mandatory in EVERY international airport in australia, thanks to transport minister anthony albanese (fuckstain), uses the tiresome old age reason for installing these as "we live in an age of terrorism and the people want to see the government act on this" , hmmm i think this is a degradation to my civil rights , they even closed a loophole so you cannot refuse , in america i could refuse and they just pat me down, but not here now, this is fucking bullshit and totally totalitarian, they are just herding us through like sheep, mother fuckers, how dare the government treat its own citizens like criminals/terrorist, although australia is yet to even have experience a terrorist attack.

EDIT: also we are using the same company that makes them in america to implement them here in aus, back door deals , conspiracy to implement this all over the world.

That's exactly my point. So far all this screening has not stopped one act of terrorism. It's not about terrorism. It's about oppression. It's about control. It's about teaching people to submit. It's about taxing and spending. It's about enlarging the governments control over normal law abiding peaceful people.
They are hoping to create a rebellion they can then stomp down and use to create an atmosphere of terror of the government. They did this in Nazi germany. "Papers please" Became the catch phrase used to describe the oppression of Nazi Germany. Try traveling without papers now on any airline.... You can't. Try using a bus to travel cross country. You can't. Now TSA wants interstate checkpoints. They have checkpoints at train stations. One family was detained while trying to exit a train station. When I was in Russia I didn't have to show ID to get on a train or buy a ticket. I only showed my passport to get a visa and to board a plane to Moscow. After that only one officer asked to see my ID and he was very mild and asked no questions. I was told because I was wearing sunglasses and had a beard he thought I might be a muslim and was worried enough to check who I was. I showed him my ID and without comment he noticed my name and what country I was from and I was being escorted by a woman and he just smiled and nodded and left.(I found out later that it's illegal for police to bother tourists)When I voluntarily registered at the local police station in Southern Russia the bored desk jockey just glanced at my papers and put in a stamped card and and slid my documents back across to me and nodded in dismissal.
Russian citizens are required to keep an internal passport but no one bothers to check. And tourists are off limits to police unless they commit a crime against the people or the government. I was not watched and I had complete freedom of travel and visited anywhere and anyone I wished. The local university even allowed me use of its' sport facilities. I can't wait till TSA sets up interstate roadblocks and inspections. Makes everyone get out and starts the strip searches....
