TSA Tyranny: And the Next Step…

Phil Brennan
Nov 29, 2010

When a would-be dictator wants to rein in the rights of the citizenry one of the first steps he needs to take is restricting the public’s right to travel. The ability to move around freely within your nation’s borders is the ability to congregate with like-minded individuals all across your country who share you views, one of which may be opposition to the ruling powers. 

The right to travel is a fundamental right in any nation that is free and wants to remain free. Restrict that right and you restrict one of the fundamental rights of  the citizens of a constitutional republic.

Columnist Devvy Kidd has noted the court findings in the case of United States v. Guest, 383 U.S. 745, 757, 86 S.Ct. 1170, 1178 (1966) which held that “The right to travel is a part of the ‘liberty’ of which the citizen cannot be deprived without the due process of law under the Fifth Amendment …The constitutional right to travel from one State to another, and necessarily to use the highways and other instrumentalities of interstate commerce in doing so, occupies a position fundamental to the concept of our Federal Union.”

Thanks to such rulings, a president who desires to prevent citizens from moving freely within their nation’s borders and thus free to provoke and spread opposition to his policies, has something of a problem.

If he wants to stop the people who are free to go where and when they choose to go, he needs to do it in small steps. Like the frog placed in water which is gradually heated toward the boiling point and death the people’s rights must be restricted step-by-step.  

Looked at from this perspective the new thuggish pre-boarding procedures which under any circumstances must be seen as an assault on the fundamental rights of privacy enshrined in Roe v. Wade are  just a first step in restricting the right to travel.

What’s next? How about a requirement that the traveling citizen explain where he or she is going and why they are going there?

Sound outlandish? As outlandish, say, as the federal government asserting the right to subject the citizenry to what amounts to unreasonable search and seizure, something specifically prohibited by the U.S. Constitution?

Just where in the world did the president find a right to authorize his government’s minions to perform intimate searches  that among other things involves what we youngsters used to call “feeling up” an unwilling female, and moreover doing to male and female alike in public for all to see?

Of course it is all explained to us dupes that such extreme measures are needed to prevent would-be terrorists from sneaking explosive devices aboard designed to bring down a plane in mid-flight.

Prevent it? Do they really think that terrorists highly trained to do their work are dumb enough to try to sneak explosives through an airport pre-boarding procedure? Look, if they can’t do it one way, they can finds a dozen other ways to do it. And they will. 

I’m sorry, but I simply can’t believe that these new scan and search procedures are really meant to prevent terrorists from  bringing explosives aboard. They are not that stupid and the people carrying out the newest anti-terrorism programs damn well know they aren’t.

That being the case the administration’s newest anti-terrorist project must have motives other than simply the prevention of terrorists carrying explosives from boarding a plane. 

So what we are left with is a solid suspicion that the whole shebang has been instituted for another reason – discouraging the most popular form of long and short distance travel – flight aboard an airline plane.

It really doesn’t matter if it is intentional or not, the effect is the same. The right to travel freely by air within our borders is  being made conditional upon our willingness to submit to an unlawful form of search and seizure.

You have to wonder – what’s next?

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?
