TSA Thug On A Power Trip Threatens to Bar Travel

Our recent trip through Baltimore BWI Airport was a disturbing example of the authoritative behavior of TSA agents.

A TSA thug explains to a slave that while the government assumes the authority to look at your naked body, that you have no right to film them doing so.

The airport, likely many others in the U.S., had begun implementing now-notorious Body Scanners months before the Christmas Day Underwear Bomber episode that the powers-that-be have seized upon as a justification for implementing the invasive technology (though it has come out that the alleged terrorist Abdulmutallab never went through security and was allowed onto the plane via intelligence connections without even a passport).

Fellow cameraman Rob Dew and I have already refused to go through TSA scanners at Baltimore back in the fall and were prepared to do so again. However, we were not “randomly” selected to go through them this time. The suspects du jour were middle-aged women with make-up in their purses and well-dressed, but frumpy looking businessmen.

We decided to film people going through the scanners, as well as being wanded and frisked at great inconvenience—with no basis for suspicion and no real justification for their actions.

That’s when a very large and very tall TSA agent came over to intimidate us to tell us we couldn’t film. He began confronting Rob Dew before noticing that I too was filming. I knew they couldn’t violate both of our rights at the same time without losing control. NOTE—TSA & co. take full reign in scanning the genitals and naked bodies of our families and children, patting them down and looking through every item on their person or luggage—but we’re not supposed to film this going on.

It seemed to me like a gaggle of criminals who didn’t want their despicable actions to be under scrutiny. Though the TSA parade as a legitimate government agency, their actions are transparently unconstitutional and they apparently thrive on the element of intimidation. TSA’s unwarranted examination of every passenger would not stand long if The People stood up for themselves, yet the fearful atmosphere keeps heads low and objections under muttered breath.

This is precisely why I felt morally compelled to object to their behavior and resist the easy supplication to their arbitrary power. When the TSA stooge commanded me to stop filming, I reminded him that he was violating the Fourth Amendment and the Constitution—that we have a right to be secure in our persons and possession, and that searches were unconstitutional when they had no basis for probable cause and where no warrant has been issued.

He didn’t want to hear it, uttering a sarcastic “Uh huh” to my lecturing. I told him to his face that is was wrong to scan children’s genitals and wrong to single out middle-aged women with nothing more than too much make up or, in one case I have witnessed in the past, a knitting needle and yarn.

His response to this was to close into my personal space, trying to intimidate me with his towering figure and large beer-belly. He told me that if I kept filming, he was “turn me over to police” and that I “wouldn’t be allowed to fly.” How would I like to have my trip cancelled and be barred from travel, he posed to me, both in words and body language. I’m sure it wasn’t a bluff—more than a million Americans and other travelers have already been put on no fly lists—many for simply having a common name, or even a name similar to a common or suspicious name.

“I have a right to travel,” I told him plainly. He reiterated his threat. I told him he was hurting America. I meant it. He huffed and puffed and walked away, leaving me filming.

The TSA agent gets in face when I tell him how wrong it is to violate the Fourth Amendment, single out ordinary Americans and scan the genitals of our children and families. In turn, he threatens to bar me from flying.

It was entirely clear that few, if any individuals, had ever stood up to the “power” of his uniform which he so plainly flaunted and hid behind. But, as Thomas Paine made clear in the Rights of Man so long ago, that power resides in the uniform, and not in the hollow, petty and largely illiterate body of the willing enforcer.

Like the Nazis and other worst offenders in history, the rights of The People have been stripped away when checkpoints and unauthorized searches were allowed to flourish. When minority groups and eccentric individuals were targeted, and the whole of the people did not stand up against it, that undue power has almost always spread like a contagion and taken over the population at large.

Today, if we’re not already at that point, we’re dangerously close to it. TSA checkpoints are a prime example of it, where nearly everyone fails to stand up to tyranny, silently condoning the unconstitutional behavior, and thus, letting it run wild. The end to that scenario is clear, unless people will reclaim their dignity and refuse to submit to this system.

Already, the check points and body scanners have extended to courthouses and may soon be implemented on subways, trains and other travel points if nothing is done to stand up to the invasion of our basic rights.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
