Dig this. The TSA has a blog and they do things like defend their stance on looking in baby's diapers for sh*tbombs or is it, stinkbombs? Here is what they say concerning their illegal searches of Americans in airports across the nation.

EXCERPT: "What's our take on the Texas House of Representatives voting to ban the current TSA pat-down? Well, the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution (Article. VI. Clause 2) prevents states from regulating the federal government." 
Okay, before we get into the various violations by the Federal Government on the American people, some liberals and RINO morons have actually come out and said that it is a privilege to fly. WRONG ANSWER! In a free society, we the people have the right to travel about freely and that includes air travel. It is just as wrong for the TSA to pull people off of a train or a bus, without probable cause, and then search them without a warrant, unless that person is stupid enough to consent to one. The same is true when we are driving in our car, on public roads, as well as walking, biking, etc.

Next, the TSA's Dr Goebbels refers to Article VI, Clause 2 (Supremacy Clause) yet if the TSA and the Federal Government is going to use that as a club against us, then THEY need to follow the enumerated powers, which of course, they are not doing. In other words, if the Federal Government followed the Enumerated Powers, as outlined in Article I, section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, then much of what they interfere in, would not be happening.

The problem for the TSA and TSA's Dr Goebbels is twofold. First, we're not stupid, even though this regime thinks we are. Many of us, unlike the union taught 8th graders in Wisconsin, CAN READ and COMPREHEND silly things like the 4th, 5th, 9th, and 10th Amendments as well as the Enumerated Powers of a LIMITED government. Second, Texas is not passing laws that attempt to regulate the Federal Government but rather, to enforce the Constitutional limits on the ever more intrusive Federal Government.

The 4th Amendment reads: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, 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."

This very clearly exposes the fact that the TSA is operating illegally across the land because one, airports are not federal property, two, Americans are being searched through electronic means, which is a direct violation of their persons, and three, there is no probable cause to treat every American wishing to fly as a terrorist. Sorry TSA but infants and old people do not fit the terrorist profile. Next, the TSA puts out the straw man argument of "everyone else was doing it first" in order to justify their actions in violating our rights. This is akin to a child telling their parent that everyone else is doing it so why can't I, etc, etc. One, the correct response to the child is, "I don't give a damn what ____________ is doing, he/she AIN'T MY KID!" Two, no other country in the world has a Constitution that LIMITS government, which, of course, Obama hates, even as he works to bypass it at every turn.

Thus, the 10th Amendment reads: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

That means that ANYTHING not expressly IN the Enumerated Powers is OUTSIDE the purview of the Federal Government and that would include airport security. There is no reason why the States cannot boot the TSA out of their airports and privatize their security, to ensure a more efficient and more effective security. It appears that Texas and Alaska are taking action to limit the TSA's outrages. The Supremacy Clause reads: "This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding."

Basically, if a state law and a federal law conflicts, then the Federal law supersedes it HOWEVER, nothing can supersede an Amendment without strict guidelines being followed to change or void one, i.e., Prohibition and the Repeal of it.

It should be noted that if the Federal government passes a law that is unconstitutional, then the states do not have to follow it. That is called Nullification and it upholds the idea that States have the inherent right to invalidate or "nullify" any federal law that the state(s) deem as unconstitutional. What the Federal government fails to note is that was sovereign States that joined together to form a Union and as such, they are the authority regarding the limits of the power of the central government, as written in the Tenth Amendment. The State or States have the right to "interpose" themselves between an unjust law from the Federal Government and the citizens of that state, i.e., ObamaKare versus 28 States. Now liberals will point to nullification as never being upheld by the SCOTUS and they would be right but that doesn't make what the SCOTUS says as right, under the Enumerated Powers and the 10th Amendment.

The bottom line is that the Federal Government, especially under the current regime, has pissed on, crapped on, shredded, and bypassed the US Constitution at every turn. The TSA's overreach merely being one of them. No doubt, the "fix" for the TSA's groping, poking, squeezing, and constitutional violations will be a national ID card or CAC card, so that travelers can be good little regulated sheep.

What needs to happen is for the States to ban together, kick the TSA OUT of the airports along with every Federal organization but the FAA, and then privatize the security, non-union of course.

And the TSA's blog? About as useful as reading the back of a cereal box and as truthful as Pravda.



  1. Notice that all these laws that are "for our own protection" only seem to target us?

  2. Gunny, for one of the few times I must disagree with you. Back in the early 1960's my mother bought a box of cereal with a toy submarine in it. You used baking powder as the "fuel" for the little sub. The back of the cereal box explained why the baking powder worked as a "fuel". (It also said that other boxes of this cereal had baking powder powered frogmen in them! I ended up getting all of the frogmen to help the sub.)

    Therefore, I wish to protest and disagree with what you said concerning reading the back of a cereal box not being useful.

    However, everything you said about the TSA (and their blog) is IMO dead on correct. I hope Texas knocks the shiite out of them.

  3. Sepp,

    Yep. I have personally witnessed VIPs getting around the screening that the masses have to endure.

  4. Gray Ghost,

    HAHA! I believe I had that detachment as well!

    I hope Alaska follows through and boots the TSA. We don't have the scanners at Anchorage and probably won't, thank God.

    I HATE flying around the lower 48 and do so ONLY when I HAVE TO!

  5. Gunny,

    Do the state police in Alaska set up road blocks to make sure you have your seat belt on? They do that here in NC. A direct violation of the Constitution and remember how much we hated Checkpoint Charlie? We fought a 40 year war against the Soviets to get rid of Checkpoint Charlie, only to have them setup all over America. Can we please fire another shot heard round the world?

  6. TGP,

    You know, that is in keeping with the "experiments of the states" idea of the Founders. (IMO) States can pass crap like that and do it and it is up to the people to void it through elections.

    You all need to challenge those roadblocks through your Reps.

  7. Good post Gunny,
    I know that I wouldn't like to be searched in the way the TSA does. It is embarassing, and builds ire. I just KNOW there are perverts that love touching children, or grope young women, or men. I was angry just seeing the pictures of the groping, and am glad that something is being done in Texas and possibly Alaska.

  8. That idiot Blogger Bob at TSA's blog OBVIOUSLY has NO knowledge of the Constitution. The moron was arguing the TSA had the authority under the Constitution,when challenged to come up with the specific language,he couldn't.All too typical of this bunch.

  9. Loved the Jay Leno skit on Obama in El Paso. It showed him waxing eloquent about how securee the border was , as 2 Mexicans scaled the wall behind him. I know it's not TSA but....

    TSA just another tool of Big Sis.

  10. Gunny & TGP,
    The state police used to set-up road blocks around my area regularly. Finally when stopped for about the tenth time, I politely asked them where their constitutional authority came from and ended up talking to their watch commander. They don't do the road blocks here anymore.

    The issue here is that law enforcement does not know the constitution either and just attempt to enforce an arbitrary law that doesn not exist except for some bureaucrats alleged good intentions.

  11. Nanna,

    Not to mention that they don't change their gloves in between gropes and probes!

    After we clean house in 2012, people responsible for all of this need to be put on trial.

  12. clyde,

    Baghdad Bob of the TSA had me cracking up. He was owned 100 times over.

  13. Pack Rat,

    I would bet money that Incompetano gets a pardon from Obama before he gets the boot in 2012.

  14. Hardnox,

    There are a lot of good cops and TSA folks and they're being scammed and duped by this regime and that is not right. We have A LOT of work ahead of us rolling this crap back.

  15. Kick TSA out and install private security.
    Okay, but a petulant federal government would look the other way as an act of terrorism is attempted on that airport. They would look the other way to the point of aiding and abetting in order to say, "See? That would not have happened if you had kept TSA..."

  16. Well, I agree with a lot of what's been written here, in the essay and comments, but you want to know who's really to blame for all this?


    Yep, this time it's a legitimate "Blame Bush" moment.

    Because it was Bush who decided to appoint Mineta as Sec of Transportation, under whom the FAA falls, and it was Mineta -- a flaming Lefty -- who imposed the "no profiling" rule when screening was first instituted after 9/11. From that, all else flows.

    Had common-sense profiling been instituted right from the jump -- just like the Israelis do -- we wouldn't be dealing with ANY of this BS.

  17. BrianR,

    Solid gold. Bush IS to blame for this one and only slid out of this essay because I wanted to focus on the minions within TSA lying their asses off.

    But you are dead-on Bush and Mineta screwed the American people when we were most vulnerable.

  18. Spot-on,Brian. And the idiotic GOP just keeps digging out like-minded fools who'll be the same as he was thinking we'll simply vote for them because they're not Obama. GOP=stuck on stupid.
