Editor’s Note: Really? Something the TSA does is a giant waste of money? WOW. Amazing. Kinda like those radiating “nude” body scanners which are easily fooled… Or the entire agency altogether. In less than a decade-and-a-half, we’ve turned into a nation that can’t even approach an airport […]

John Brennan, the “Naked American Hero” who took off all his clothes at a TSA checkpoint at the Portland, Oregon airport, will finally have his day in a Federal court more than three years later.

Changes within the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) should prompt you to reconsider the wisdom of crossing into or out of the United States. The TSA is slowly turning from counter-terrorism to criminal law enforcement, which will include the pursuit of tax violaters. And you may not […]

Precedents exist for requiring citizens to produce special ID for domestic travel; they include Nazi Germany, apartheid South Africa and Russia (both Imperial and Soviet).
Over the Christmas season, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) quietly announced that America was walking down that path. By 2016, all domestic […]

Under color of a vestigial provision of Federal law related to an airline passenger profiling program that was discontinued more than four years ago, and applying the name of that program (and attempting to apply the same legal mandate) to an entirely new scheme, the TSA is adding a […]

We’ve been reading the Jetsetting Terrorist blog (highlighted last week by Boing Boing) to see what we can learn from the anonymous author’s chronicles of his experiences traveling on commercial airlines, within the U.S. and internationally,after being convicted of a nonviolent misdemeanor criminal offense the U.S. has since defined […]

I read that Apple and Google have begun encrypting the data of customers so that nobody, including Apple and Google, have plaintext access to it. This of course means “so that the government will not have access to it.” The FBI is terribly upset about this, […]

CLEVELAND, OH — A man is suing the Transportation Security Administration because he says that TSA agents opened up a sealed urn and spilled his mother’s ashen remains into his suitcase.

By a vote of two judges to one, a panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has declined to consider a petition by Jonathan Corbett for review of the TSA’s use of virtual strip search machines and “enhanced patdowns” (genital groping), and has opined that if the court were […]

A Congressional hearing last week on the so-called “Secure Flight” system for “screening” domestic air travelers confirmed that the TSA has completed a shift from blacklist and whitelist matching to a comprehensive real-time pre-crime profiling system that assigns each air traveler a “risk assessment” score on the four-step scale […]

It’s been a banner month for anyone who despises the deceitful TSA. Not once but twice, the agency has proved itself a complete, unrepentant liar.
Breitbart News reported earlier this summer that the TSA was “ALLOWING ILLEGALS TO FLY WITHOUT VERIFIABLE ID,” […]

Despite repeatedly insisting that it was not allowing illegal aliens to fly without ID, the TSA admits in a letter to Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-TX) that a ‘notice to appear’ form alone is sufficient documentation for an individual to board an airliner.

Researchers with three of the nation’s top Universities have concluded that TSA body scanners can be easily defeated by anyone with a modicum of know how, confirming what Infowars first reported two years ago, that the machines are useless.
Researchers at the University of California-San […]

Time and time again, the TSA has acted as though its middle name was “secrecy” rather than “security”.
Case in point: Sai v. TSA.
There’s a lot at issue in this case, but here are some of the problems with the TSA that it has exposed:
Sai poses no threat […]

The “March 2013 Watchlisting Guidance” is a 166-page instruction booklet issued by “watchlist authorities” and used by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to determine who goes on the “selectee” and “no-fly” lists.
A selectee will experience “enhanced screening” at airports and […]
