Aaron Dykes Infowars.com January 25, 2011 Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura is suing the TSA and Homeland Security for humiliating and ‘offensive’ pat-down procedures he’s been subjected to during airport security checks that included ‘warrantless, non-suspicion-based offensive touching, gripping and rubbing of the genital and other sensitive areas of his body.’ Ventura, who had a hip replacement procedure in 2008, says he was unduly targeted due to his disability. His lawsuit , filed yesterday in Minnesota, claims the pat-downs violated his privacy, his 4th Amendment right and legally meet ‘the definition for an unlawful sexual assault’.” Alex Jones, who traveled with Ventura last September during the production of his “Conspiracy Theory” TV show over the course of multiple flights, witnessed the former governor being groped and inappropriately touched in a pat-down procedure that Ventura faces everytime he travels.
Are children required to be screened? Yes, all passengers are subject to pre-board screening. CATSA has specific procedures for the screening of infants and very small children to accommodate for holding or cradling by a parent or guardian. What screening options are available for minors? All passengers must go through the walk through metal detector or undergo a physical search. If secondary screening is required, passengers have the option of a physical search, a private physical search, or passing through the full body scanner, where available.
Paul Joseph Watson Infowars.com November 23, 2010 Blogger Matt Kernan was able to bypass both the naked body scanner and invasive TSA pat down procedures during his return to the United States this past weekend, proving that both measures are completely unconstitutional and creating a precedent for a total shake-up of airport security. Kernan, who documents the case on his website , was returning from a trip to Europe and was perturbed to see TSA workers making Americans who had already cleared security in their airport of origin go through backscatter x-ray machines and be groped simply to re-enter their own country. “You see, it is official TSA policy that people (both citizens and non-citizens alike) from international flights are screened as they enter the airport, despite the fact that they have already flown,” writes Kernan.
Corporate Media Shills For Radiation Firing Body Scanners Steve Watson Prisonplanet.com Wednesday, Nov 24th, 2010 Worried about harmful x-ray firing airport body scanners? Don’t be, everything is just fine. In fact, hugging your partner in bed exposes you to more radiation, according to the corporate media. In an article consisting of a series of slideshow pictures, CBS News today defends the scanners by suggesting that virtually any activity is more dangerous to your health.
Paul Joseph Watson Infowars.com December 1, 2010 In response to the national outcry surrounding invasive pat down measures, the TSA has been forced to refine its airport security procedures, but has simultaneously entrenched its policy that requires government permission for all Americans who wish to fly, creating what critics have labeled a Communist-style system of internal checkpoints. After a public revolt against naked body scanners and TSA groping that was primarily spearheaded by the Drudge Report website, TSA chief John Pistole announced yesterday was looking at refining pat down procedures to make them “less intrusive.” “Pistole said that the TSA will work “quickly” to determine whether there is a viable alternative but that he has no timetable,” reports the Washington Post today .
