If We Don’t Fight, TSA-like Security Coming to ‘Sidewalks,’ ‘Football Games,’ Texas Rep. Warns

You know, I've read a bunch of news reports over the past few days about this issue, and all state that DHS considered mobile backscatter porno-scanners, but deny that they are using them. Meanwhile....I have seen two of them in use here in Texas. We saw Homeland Security using one at a highway weigh-station for trucks, and those bastards, with no notification, consent or probable cause, irradiated my children as we passed through the local gestapo (border patrol) checkpoint on the way to a medical appointment. The machine was pretty much concealed at the end of the building as we drove through...we didn't see it until the little "scanning" light flashed. I am frothing too. And....Sherri....I didn't mention did I, that Gary saw that same truck traveling the local roads...the one we live on specifically. Perhaps randomly scanning traffic on the roads or people's homes? But still, DHS says they thought about it....but dismissed the idea. So yes....the danger of being scanned on the sidewalks and football games is real....in fact....it is already here, despite the outright lies fed to the sheeple.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Guess your government doesn't deem using portable/mobile backscatter porn-scanners on its 14th Amendment "citizens" as, Unreasonable. Irrational; foolish; unwise; absurd; silly; preposterous; senseless; [or] stupid. Southern State Lines Co. v. Public Service Commission, 135 Kan. 657, 11 P.2d 985, 987. (Source: Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition (c.1991), page 1538)

Well, it's either that or 14th Amendment citizens aren't protected by the Fourth Amendment. Take your choice. ;)

Melinda... a lot of locals are talking about this right now. I don't know if we're going to see any action, but I told Dave to let me know if anybody puts together a Marfa-like protest, because I'll assist in any way possible. I think we should write to the city counsel and the chamber of commerse members, as well as the bigger chain stores in the area, letting them know that people on our side are going to start traveling up the mountain to shop, even though it is further away, since out local officials refuse to do what is right and stand up to the feds. You may want to post that bit of info about traveling the local roads with their equipment on Dave in the Can's blog, he's been talking about the issue, too. Julie who is suing the ranch is also interested.

Suverans2... I always enjoy reading your comments on STR wherever they are and on whatever subject you deem worthy of your well written and researched response. For a multitude of reasons, the American people have decided that their rights are no longer worth the time and effort to assert. Shameful, sad, but true.

We pay for this shit, we submit to this shit, accepting such treatment from people whose salaries we pay through the taxes we pay. If enough people refused to pay, submit, accept it simply would not happen.

Thank you very much for the positive feedback, Sharon Secor. Agreed, "shameful, sad, but true."

This will mean war, if they keep pushing it.

I surely hope so....it would do my heart good to see Americans shake their apathy and stand up for something. It irks me that that most just line up like sheep for each new bit of degradation inflicted by the state....and each one done with money lifted from their own pockets.
