(TSA) isn’t as effective at detecting suspicious characters as one might think. The Government Accounting Office (GAO) has reviewed the TSA’s Screening Passengers by Observation Techniques (SPOT) program was evaluated at being “the same or slightly better than chance.”
The SPOT program since 2007 cost $900 million. The TSA has failed to collect consistent data to prove the effectiveness of the behavioral detection program; worse yet, the SPOT program was initiated without any scientific validation. For reason, the GAO has recommended that Congress cut off funding to this program, something that the Department of Homeland Security disagrees with.
You think that’s bad? That’s only the tip of the damning iceberg.
Anti-TSA activist Johnathan Corbett, who filed a lawsuit against the agency on the faulty nature of their body scanners found a particularly revealing document that declares the probability of terrorists hijacking planes in the United States.

Jonathan Corbett, a long-time vocal critic of TSA body scanners, has been engaged in a lawsuit against the government concerning the constitutionality of those scanners.
Just the thing these jumped-up mall cops need: firepower. (Speaking of that, every heard of The Mall Ninja?)
The union representing airport screeners for the Transportation Security Administration says Friday’s fatal shooting of an agent at Los Angeles International Airport highlights the need for armed security officers at every airport checkpoint.
“Every local airport has its own security arrangement with local police to some type of contract security force,” said J. David Cox Sr., president of the American Federation of Government Employees, which represents the screeners. “There is no standardization throughout the country. Every airport operates differently. Obviously at L.A. there were a fair number of local police officers there.
Apparently Paul Anthony Ciancia, the shooter in the murder of a TSA officer at LAX last week wrote a note that mentions the NWO. The mainstream media is falling over themselves trying to work out what group this is that Mr. Ciancia belonged to. It would be funny but for the shootings themselves… Here’s an example of the MSM coverage from USA Today:

The alleged gunman who killed a TSA agent and wounded three other people at LAX had written a note – and it mentions NWO, a conspiracy theory. So what is NWO?
The alleged shooter is Paul Anthony Ciancia, a 23-year-old has been hospitalized in critical condition after he was shot by LAX police. Authorities are reporting that the note said that Ciancia wanted to shoot a TSA officer, and didn’t care which one. And there’s that abbreviation, NWO, that the media has been dissecting since it was announced.
If you give the civil servants at your local airport $85 then they may not touch your n0-no square. At least as much as they might otherwise.
“Freedom” is available at no charge, but perhaps you’d like to upgrade to our new “Freedom Plus” package!

You’ve likely heard the phrase “freedom isn’t free” before, probably in the context of honoring our service men and women, paying taxes, voting, or paying for audio clips of the movie Braveheart. It’s one of those phrases that’s been used so often that it’s probably no longer worthwhile. My main complaint about the phrase, other than the generally mouth-breathing blowhards who use it, is it leaves the obvious follow up question unanswered: fine, then how much will freedom cost me? It’s an important question we’ve never really had an answer to…until now.
And that answer is? 85 whole American dollars. No, I didn’t get that out of some Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy fan-fiction.
Omniscient, all-seeing, all-hearing. Who? The TSA. This pastor hopes to pray it all away.
In this video, WeAreChange tries something new and documents the 48hrs of their travels to the United Kingdom. Let us know what you think of this style of video and if you would like to see more of them. We started covering the Jeremy Hammond court case, drove down to Virginia to get one last interview with Adam Kokesh before we leave, go to the airport record the TSA one on one and finally land in the United Kingdom.
Did you know you have every right to refuse not only the naked body scanners, but any invasive pat down of your physical body? You do not have to consent to such violations of your natural rights (which supersede political rights). Intrepid activist Clint Richardson recounts his molestation at the hands of the TSA and his plans to hold accountable and sue every officer who acted outside of the authority granted by law as individuals.

As I entered the line for the security and “screening” area of the Salt Lake City Airport on April 27th, 2013, I decided that it was time to stand up for my natural rights as a lawful man. I decided not to offer my willing consent that any TSA officer might presume as to my willingness or legal duty to be either irradiated in a full-body scanner or be patted down by any agent of government or its security guards (police) without first being shown probable cause or reasonable suspicion that I have committed a regulated commercial or criminal act, and to show any law that gave that officer or security guard authority to do so despite my lack of voluntary consent.
The machines are being removed, but the disturbing grayscale images of travelers’ bloated bodies will continue to haunt our nightmares. Via Boomberg:
The U.S. Transportation Security Administration will remove airport body scanners that privacy advocates likened to strip searches after OSI Systems Inc. (OSIS) couldn’t write software to make passenger images less revealing.
TSA will end a $5 million contract with OSI’s Rapiscan unit. The agency removed 76 of the machines from busier U.S. airports last year. It will now get rid of the remaining 174 Rapiscan machines, with the company absorbing the cost.
Airline passengers were offended by the revealing images, including those of children and the elderly. The Washington- based Electronic Privacy Information Center sued the agency in July 2010, claiming the scanners violated privacy laws and has called use of the machines equivalent to a “physically invasive strip search.”
