CENSORING THE EVIDENCE ON TSA BODY SCANNER DANGER
Since I travel a lot, I’m really bothered by the dangers of x-ray full body scanners. I have to endure the pat down because I don’t feel they are safe. Apparently, my concerns are valid and there is a cover-up going on even as the TSA starts replacing x-ray based machines with lower frequency radio wave machines. The X-ray units are round. The radio wave units are two telephone booth-looking units on either side of the walkway.
Infowars.com broke the story this week that “Former Governor Jesse Ventura exclusively revealed to Infowars that a show set to air as part of Ventura’s popular Conspiracy Theory series that exposed how TSA body scanners were a major cancer threat was canceled by Time Warner-owned TruTV.
“This year we did eight of them but they’re only going to air seven, they won’t do the one we did on the TSA – that one apparently ain’t gonna make show time,” said Ventura, speaking to the Alex Jones Show.
Pointing out how radiation-firing body scanners had recently been removed from larger airports, Ventura explained how the censored show was an investigation of the safety and money motivation behind the body scanners. “They’re still not admitting that they’re not safe, well then why are they replacing them?” asked Ventura.
“‘We exposed that these things are not safe, we exposed that the radiation levels are at an unsafe level, we exposed the fact that TSA employees aren’t allowed to wear radiation badges for their own protection,’ added Ventura, explaining that the government was trying to avoid lawsuits by avoiding having any system in place that monitor radiation levels.”
Joel Skousen (with Paul Craig Roberts): Anniversary of a Government Terror — “The American public has proved itself to be so cowardly that it willingly, without a peep, sacrificed its civil liberty and the protections of law guaranteed by the Constitution in order to be ‘safe.’”
Dr. Stanley Monteith: “The scanners were already in the warehouses. …they suddenly created an underwear bomber. … And Americans dutifully went along, raising their hands in submission as they were radiated.”
Federally enforced PORN – and our *mothers* and *daughters* are the STARS: TSAs are singling out women to be goggled at in the naked body scanners — “One woman was sent through three times because she was ‘cute.’” | “My daughter recently went through the airport security…”
[ audio ] Jesse Ventura on Coast to Coast AM 11/08/11: Ventura’s TSA Lawsuit — “It’s not going to end with the airports. … It’s going to the bus stations; it’s going to the train stations, and it’s even going to be out on the highways.” “These people saying that I’m unpatriotic, I find how shallow their thought process is, because I’m here fighting for our Amendment rights in this country.”
Jesse Ventura Berates Facist America Over Court Ruling: “I will never stand for a national anthem again. I will turn my back and I will raise a fist the same way Tommy Smith and John Carlos did back in the ’68 Olympics. … I have lost my patriotism. It’s gone. And I say that with a deep heart. …they’ve stripped me of it, by not allowing me to have a day in court with a jury to determine if my 4th Amendment rights are being violated.”
Coast to Coast 5/26/11: Alex Jones Protest Over TSA — They’re SETTING THE PRECEDENT for forced inoculation and CHIPPING! | Noory: “I have seen some TSA workers look at each other when some good looking girl is walking through the line…”
Judge Napolitano: Peaceful Republic or Police State? — Our freedoms have been systematically wiped out since the Constitution was signed. “We allow the government to force us into nude photo booths and touch our children and babies in their most intimate places.”
A privacy rights advocacy group told appellate judges that the use of full-body scanners as a first line of defense at airport security checkpoints is an “unreasonable search” in violation of passengers’ civil rights.
David Bercot’s CD teaching: Separation from the World — What the Early Christians Believed About Separation from the World. D. Bercot. The Bible exhorts us: “Adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” So…
Wes Hall: It’s Not Just Porn! “You’re asking for power and there are areas of hidden compromise in your life. … I’m not talking about the R-rated movies. I’m talking about the PG-13s … certain sitcoms, TV shows where your spirit is being defiled.”
A Nation ‘Bewitched’: Farrah Fawcett — “When the show [Charlie’s Angels] got to be No. 3, I figured it was our acting. When it got to be No. 1, I decided it could only be because none of us wears a bra”
Paul Craig Roberts: TSA is a far greater threat to Americans than are terrorists. There has not been a successful terrorist act since 9/11, and thousands of independent experts doubt the government’s explanation of that event. The very fact that the FBI has to orchestrate fake terrorism proves the absence of real terrorists. If Americans were more thoughtful and less gullible…
IMPORTANT! Alex Jones: Another Clueless Patsy Set-up by FBI in Christmas Tree Bombing Plot — “…so they can sit up there on the news and say: ‘We’ve got terrorists everywhere. We’ve gotta have naked body scanners!’”
The real purpose of naked body scanners: Using phony terrorist scares to bilk Americans out of millions in tax dollars and rob them of their privacy and dignity
RON PAUL: Crotch Groped by TSA, Calls for Boycott of Airlines — “If we tolerate this there’s something wrong with us” ~”SHOWING OUR PAPERS, we’ve capitulated on that a long time ago, because we show our social security number, but NOW THEY WANT US TO SHOW OUR GENITALIA!”
Naked body scanners will be everywhere! Napolitano: Next step for body scanners could be trains, boats, metro
Gerald Celente on naked body scanners and full-body pat-downs: They freaked the whole country out over the underwear bomber who didn’t even have an igniter!
TSA Tactics Find Ominous Parallel in Nazi Germany — It took Hitler and the Nazis nearly a decade to impose a murderous police state on the German people. In the wake of the staged burning of the Reichstag…
IRRATIONALlY FEARFUL: Why are people so willing to show their naked bodies? “More people die each year from honey bee stings than from terror” — Alex Jones
Paul Craig Roberts: “People have forgotten the warnings of the founding fathers that you can’t trade your rights for safety, because the minute you don’t have your rights anymore you’re not safe”
Airport Naked Body Scanners: Experts Now Warn X-ray Devices “could give you cancer” “because the beam concentrates on the skin — one of the most radiation-sensitive organs of the human body — that (the) dose may be up to 20 times higher than first estimated”
Excellent! How to opt out of the TSA’s naked body scanners at the airport — “They all just lined up like cattle to have their bodies scanned with ionizing radiation”
Biochemist: ‘Naked’ scanners may increase cancer risk — “While the dose would be safe if it were distributed throughout the volume of the entire body, the dose to the skin may be dangerously high”
Miami airport security guard attacks colleague over ‘manhood’ jokes after walking through full nudity body scanner
Airport security guard was given a police warning after he was caught staring at images of a female colleague in a body scanner. — Their solution is training and monitoring to ensure that TSAs will only be able to lust “lawfully, with fairness and without discriminating.” Where is the outcry from women, from fathers — from the pastors???
Pornographic Scanners: The TSA has been trying to turn airports into peep-shows courtesy of these strip-machines since 2002. Then along comes Umar Farouk Abdullmutallab and his burning britches, and bingo …
Aussie TSA on ‘naked’ full-body scanners: “It will show the private parts of people, but what we’ve decided is that we’re not going to blur those out, because it severely limits the detection capabilities.”
It’s Official: A Majority Of Americans Would Give Up Liberty In Order To Be Safe From Terrorism. Almost 4 out of 5 Americans are perfectly fine with letting airport security officials gawk at their naked bodies just so they can feel a bit safer from terrorists.
FBI LIED 5 TIMES about the underwear bomber. Full-body scanners were scheduled to be installed in hundreds of US airports BEFORE incident! PROBLEM > REACTION > SOLUTION. But body scanners wouldn’t have stopped incident anyway?
