Security crews are using full-body-imaging scanners as the primary, not random, method of screening passengers.

The U.S. Transportation Security Administration has blocked entrances to metal detectors. Officials now instruct all travelers to get in line at one of the three imaging detection scanners.




Travelers must take off all jewelry and remove whatever is in their pockets. They raise their hands above their heads, and the machine captures images that appear as if their bodies are UNCLOTHED.

Alex Jones has also picked up the story at Info Wars:

What do you think? Should every man woman and child that wishes to fly from El Paso be required to pass through a full body scan?

Should anyone?

Would you walk through if you had already paid for your ticket?

here are some other ATS threads on the subject:

Now that's gold.

Do you think the text actually shows up on the scanning screen? The whole concept just lights up ideas in my head: 2mm rubber body suits with all kinds of nasty things to be said to the scanning attendant spelled out in embossed rubber!

It makes me want to go get scanned. erg... emmm.. uhh...

or not.

As far as adults go I could care less about scanners as I will not step onto one of those sometimes flying hunks of metal, God gave me 2 feet that can get me anywhere I need to go.
But as for the children, this could be an awesome backdoor out of these body scanners.
Are these people perverted? Using body scanners on babies?
That is as good an angle as any to get rid of them.

These scanners use millimeter wave RF energy. This is also called the Terrahertz frequency range. It resides at the high end of the microwave spectrum and just below Infrared light. This range is small enough to interact with and damage DNA. This is not a conspiracy theory it is considered to be settled science by myself any most of my peers.

Cancer is not something I will accept as necessary for my air travel. We get enough of a dose of x-ray when we fly due to the altitude. I just don't think we need to aggravate that with a huge dose of DNA damaging terrahertz frequency RF energy as well.

haha Indeed !!

If I had to send my son into a scanner I would wait awhile, ... then run in front of him screaming " How dare you sir, this is a child " !!!! " Get your Jollies off on me all you want, ... but this boy is innocent " !!!

Covering my kids private area as I scoop him up and run away.

Hey I'm just sayin ya know?

One thing gets the peoples attention anymore and that is "the poor children"
I truly believe the only good things left in this world are the babies and Doggies.
Well and chocolate, but thats more of a religion than a care of.

But if using the kids to get our point and or angle across and it will not harm the kids, fire away.

Terahertz waves are technically submillimeter in wavelength not millimeter, at the typical power levels used for imaging are non-ionizing thus highly unlikely to damage dna and the depth to which they can penetrate tissue is highly dependent on the actual frequency / wavelength and power level.

Unless you're continually bathing in a scanner, you're more likely to get cancer from sun bathing.

Ok, I have only one cure for this intrusion of privacy for people who do not want to be viewed naked with a electronic scanner.

Do not go to an airport. Go by boat.

They will get the clue when they finally start realizing they are committing corporate suicide.

I have not been on a plane since 911 and I will not fly paranoid flights until the paranoia can get a grip and a clue and realize alkyda is just a make believe enemy made in order to save the NWO.

I'm proud of my body. Balding, nearsighted, beergut, melanoma scars, flat feet and all.

Still I have one very redeeming feature among all my flaws. I'm quite proud of it actually.

Scan away!

The radiation emitted by airport body scanners is up to 20 times more powerful than previously believed, warns a scientist who says current calculations fail to take into account the concentration of scanner radiation in the skin. This would mean the potential cancer risk from scanners is also much higher. Given that 800 million people a year pass through airport scanners, "the population risk has the potential to be significant," Dr. David Brenner tells the Telegraph.

Brenner said the risk is highest for children and people with genetic disorders,

sure its low, but cumulative
and in conjunction with everything else that gives you cancer
like the local dentist that just died of cancer,
or the hospital machines that no one calibrated and were making everyones hair fall out
till some one noticed the bald patches and checked.
scary.

say, sun light gives you cancer
thats why they make sun block apparently

This is bull pucky. Too bad most the sheep will just go along with another unacceptable invasion of privacy. When wil folks say enough is enough? Probably never, sigh...

I for one will NEVER go through one of these scanners not because I relly give a crud whether they see me naked but because it's an unacceptable invasion of privacy.

All of these things they pass off as "security measures" for our safety are a freaking joke and have nothing to do with your safety. They are there to keep you good slaves in line.

Disgusting...

From your source:

Brenner said the risk is highest for children and people with genetic disorders, but stresses that even the higher cancer risk he calculates is still generally "very low" for any single passenger. Under current regulations, it is considered safe for a person to undergo up to 5000 scans per year.
*emphasis added.

So let's distribute those 5000 scans across a year: 5000 / 365 = ~13.7 scans a day, 7 scans every 12 hours.
(I'm rounding the number of scans up in order to help your argument.
)

Can we get real now? It's more or less impossible to expose oneself to that many scans since even if you factor in connecting flights and such you don't get re-scanned unless you leave the terminal. I think anyone making so many short duration flights in a such short period of time and be able to leave the terminal that many times is enough to raise flags.

So like I said, unless you're continually bathing in it, there is no problem. And there's no evidence it's cumulative. Even your quoted article doesn't mention that.

Having sat and thought a bit about that number of flights issue, the only potential way to get around that would be flying through smaller airports, potentially as a light / recreational pilot and not airports catering to international travel.
Great.
Body scans and biometric ID before you can board your own Cessna.

What's next? Designated areas with body scans required to operate scale remote controlled aircraft?

some of you people need to get a grip. It makes a basic digital image.with all the free porn on the internet why would anyone need to get off on some clothed little kid or some big ugly fat bitch on a 30 second scan. cheese on crackers, get a grip or never leave your house again. Of course you can always put aluminum foil on your head and hope that works. Eerybody and everything and those damn republicans and rush limbaugh are out to take over the world. Oh yeah I know it's all Bush's fault still. Son or a Sailor, when will people get down to reality and facts?
Sorry to rant because this site has pretty much gone to # anyway. Thank You For Your Continued Support.

I gotta be honest...

If I had to go through one of those, I would make sure I took no fewer than 2 Viagra at least a half hour beforehand.

If they are going to look at me, they are going to have to look at me standing up to face the class... hehe

I have a good grip. Thank you.

Yeah, well I think all the scared NAZI power tripping perverts who have delusions that everyone is going to blow them up because of one single attack nearly a decade ago need to get a grip and leave me and the rest of my freedom loving friends alone.

If somebody wants to blow up an aircraft they'll swallow balloons of whatever substance they need like the dope smugglers do daily or stick it up their body cavities if they don't need as much.

Ask any prison guard how convicts come up with drugs, cellphones & weapons when they are continually strip searched including body cavity searches on a regular basis.

Once somebody gets something in using their body cavities are we all going to be asked to bend over and spread our butt cheeks and grip the wall like convicts in order to get on an aircraft? Then we have the holier than though crowd shouting at us to just get a grip and spread your cheeks like a good victim or stay home if you don't like it.

The body scanners are not about safety they are about controlling the public using smoke, mirrors and intimidation. It's not about stopping terrorist or serious drug smugglers, it's keeping people, the traveling public from carrying too much cash, diamonds & other valuables or personal drugs through airports without declaring them. Another words more intrusive government control designed to control you and ensure your not holding back any revenue from the bloodsuckers or are self medicating to ease your suffering having to put up with them.

The big lie is it's for your safety - that's a bunch of BS and anyone who says otherwise is either a sheeple or a beneficiary of such draconian measures.

The only Terrorist are those who demand I be searched like a convict in order to move about freely in MY World.

Well, bust out the Viagra before you go through.... give em a show, or encourage them to play a game of ring toss.

Also, you could use foil tape to tape a spiral on your manhood so that when they see you it looks like a barber pole!

If you have to submit to this, you should really try to have fun with it!

Any other good full body scanner prank suggestions?
