We have an even worse option than radiation and molestation...SPYING!

How to Breeze Through Airport Security Checkpoints


Since 9/11 the big hassle for air travelers is airport security, where hustling through slow lines and getting frisked frays nerves and raises blood pressure. But, for those who travel a lot, there's an easier way: A fast pass to your seat.


You have to turn in an unbelievable amount of information to join this program. God forbid terrorists use a bus. Now the TSA can have your information stretching out to the last 5 years of your life...Just for the convenience of saving time.

Look folks, I'm a free market guy, I am...But I don't see this as free market, I see this as another government created industry to suit their own ends. In the next 2-10 years I expect to see complaints and law suits regarding this system being used in criminal probes outside of airport security. DUI? Well let's just see what the TSA has to say about your record for the last 5 years...To me this is another work around for the government as far as your 4th Amendment rights are concerned. And people are making a killing at it, and it ain't the terrorists.


From Clearme.com

We partner with airports to ensure predictability, speed and service through security.
Use your card at the CLEARlane to bypass long security waits and be on your way in minutes


For the convenience of getting through air-port security faster, you have to trade in the details of your life to a government agency filled with careless idiots and headed by political zealots since it's inception, through a corporation no one knows anything about...Until now:

Oops!

Clearme.com | Board of Directors page


Michael Chertoff:

Secretary Chertoff served as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security from 2005 to 2009. At Chertoff Group, he provides high-level strategic counsel to corporate and government leaders on a broad range of security issues, from risk identification and prevention to preparedness, response and recovery.




Another Chertoff project. It looks to me like this guy was placed in a certain position to create a system of that would give the government what it wants(more power over you) and give him prosperity at your expense. His involvement in the implementation of full body scanners, and the subsequent profits from that coupled with this, is beginning to appear rather inappropriate.

Edit:
JetBlue: In the Black and Soaring
ATME 2001 Keynote Speaker, David Neeleman


Based on his previous track record, Neeleman was able to attract an initial $130 million in capital funding from investors which included Weston Presidio Capital, George Soros, and Chase Capital. At that time, Neeleman had no management team, no planes, and no airport slots for take-off and landing.


David Neeleman is also a member of the board. This seems to be the MO for NWO type startups. They come out of nowhere, no one knows anything about them, and we're expected to think this is nothing to think about.

This is the kind of stuff both left and right can chew on. Let us not forget that it was the left in this country who began the backlash over intrusive and unconstitutional practices by the government during the Bush years..Now the right is finally picking up on this, so lets keep the ball rolling...To me, this is more evidence proving it isn't about red or blue but about corrupt and not corrupt.

unbelievable, I dont know whats worse the fact that this is happening or the probability of hundreds signing up for this thinking its a quick an easy way to travel.
Coming from England that was part of our holiday, queing in lines patiently while everything was checked and double checked, to be fair the way English are that was half the fun!

On a more serious note, how much are they going to take and how much more will we allow them to take.
Thanks for the info, never heard of this before.

Peace

Apparently no one has.

But there's a lot of things we don't know. Check out the edit.

There's a 'chip' in the Smart Card huh? Anyone else betting it's an RFID? Don't want your biometrics taken by the Rapiscan? Here, give us your iris scan instead! They really want our biometric data for whatever reason. I wonder what the true motive is there.

You know there is a much easier way to do this. Let the airlines handle it. How many terrorists are folks that hold elite status with various airlines? Do you really think that 60 year old businessman with American Airlines Executive Platinum status is a potential terrorist?


Oh wait! That would rely on the government using a little thing called 'common sense'. Whoops, silly me!


ETA: I realize this is completely circumstantial but I offer it as a 'thing that makes you go hrmm'. Everytime I've gone through O'Hare since they brought in the Rapiscans, I have noticed something. I have elite status so I go through the priority lane. I've never seen priority lane use the Rapiscan when I was there. All three times it was the folks flying regular coach with no elite status being funneled through the scanners. Food for thought.

Oops again!

Michael Chertoff and George Soros: TSA scanning device profiteers

Chertoff was a Bush appointee, Soros is an Obama supporter and funds the Liberal media.

Nothing going on here or anything...

Remember folks, this isn't about being right or left, this is about power. It's ALL about power. The ruling class don't have a right and left.

Interesting. One on side of the coin, the clear card looks like something I'd want to have just for ease of travel, but it's expensive! On the flip side, siding with all said above seems too light a pretty spooky fire.

About a year or so ago I remember seeing access cards by DHS on ads on tv. I couldn't believe it. There were cards for Canada, Mexico and the US, all same cards that came from the same place. Only saw the campaign run twice and never saw them again.

Subscribed.

It will not be very long before this becomes part of a new system. This is just one cog in the machine. We have REAL ID/Pass, RFID implantable chips, and a security apparatus so horrible at the airport that people will clamor for this crap in droves to not deal with TSA Agents who prior to the creation of TSA were $9/hour employees who had no security training at all, and were pliable to being trained in the governments intrusive tactics under the idea that this is how security is most effective.

It's comin' folks.

I expect within the next 10 years there to be a major terrorist attack at a high profile mall or sporting event (like a suicide bomber at the super bowl) that will result in TSA being brought under the control of the Dept Of Homeland Security. This will lead to TSA type patdowns, xrays, information gathering etc at all major venues, be it a mall or a sporting event, as well as possibly large gatherings via mobile trucks. I also expect that within my lifetime I will see school security doing TSA type searches on students as they enter school..

This is the America that the Fascist want for us..

Agreed. What we have here is a supremely close relationship between business and government creating the negative effects we are seeing in the news. This crap has got to stop. Americans aren't fascists.

I'm tired of playing this game folks.


This is Statists VS. YOU! The devil has a lot of names too, but he's still the devil no matter what you call 'em right? When is the last time you felt the healing touch of government?

I'm sick and tired of this. The problem with gridlock in congress today, where in history it would have been a good thing, is that no matter what happens, the status quo will be maintained.

It has never been so clear to me that it really is up to us. When you shove aside the political BS and get to the meat of the matter, all of a sudden all corruption becomes the same to you.

I don't trust the next congress will be able to get any honest reform through, nor do I think the Constitution will be respected in any fashion greater than what we see today, and this is coming from a resident TPM guy. Let the political football game begin!

nice post proj.

it would seem that all of the recent activity with the tsa, coupled with supreme court rulings, patriot act, homeland security, along with the info in yours and many recent posts, we are being led somewhere??

my biggest concern is, is any of it the real problem??

they have us so ingrained to fight amongst ourselves, right vs. left, gay vs. straight, rich vs. poor, christian vs. muslim, pro-life vs. pro-choice, etc.

we are spending all this effort and time discussing these and many other issues, maybe thats what they want, maybe its all a false flag, and while were busy debating both sides of these issues, they are going to do an end around????

diversion tatics, simple warfare 101

again, great post S&F

Mmm interesting ... I actually had a Clear account, then they went out of business and GE/Lockheed Martin bought out my personal information.
It seems that they are indeed back but only available out of Denver and Orlando at the moment.

If they expand to all the locations they used to have I might re-up my membership with them as they were extremely convenient and they already have all my personal info. I'm not sure I would have joined up back then if I was an ATS member at the time ... for the amount of info required was rather intrusive and included a background check, iris scan, and fingerprinting.

Oh well, since they got me in their machines might as well drink up and enjoy the ride ... that isn't to say that I won't opt for a cavity search if mrs sdog has a 'headache' again.

you know i've been thinking, we seem to expect that we are going to get some politicians into office that will make a difference, some feel that it might be independents, republicans, democrats, or even tea partiers.

but, heres the problem with that solution;

suppose ur a normal working joe, earning maybe $30,000 yr. barely able to keep food on the table for the wife , and two kids. now, your boss comes to you and says, look, we are not going to be able to finish this job and still make a profit, he proposes that you use inferior material for the last half of the job, you, knowing that the last time he asked one of the guys to do this, that fellow took a stand, "no, i'm not going to put lives in danger, just to make money"
you also know, that he no longer has a job, his unemployement was denied, and he's pretty much been blackballed in the industry, so, you justify, just this one time it will be okay, after all, i do have to feed my family.


now, imagine the newly elected official, full of gusto, and he's ready to make some changes for the "people".

he's making $138,000 yr. plus about half a million more from lobbists, insider trading, etc. they approach him to pass a law that he knows will ultimitely cost millions of americans their jobs, savings, and maybe even their security.

he's ready to make a stand, but the senior congressman reminds him of the last 3 that didn't go along, ones in prision on trumped up charges, lost his wife, house, friends, etc. the second one was forced to leave during a sex scandal involving child porn, you can imagine what his life is like now, and of course the 3rd one, well he just happen to commit suicide, by jumping out the window of the naval hospital window.


so what does are newly elected official, our man thats goin to change things do...........

WELL, JUST THIS ONE TIME, I GUESS IT WOULD BE OK.

We have one political party that wants to use Government sponsored agencies using Corporate bought and developed security equipment to detain and search us when ever using a mode of transportation.
(Democrats)

We have another political party that wants to use Private Security corporations using Corporate bought and developed security equipment to detain and search us when ever using a mode of transportation.
(Republicans)

Americans may not be... in general.. Fascist .. but a very slim minority actually find something wrong with the intensive new security.. and no one is batting an eyelash at the fact that corporations are making billions off these schemes ..

Americans are Fascist, we are ignorant lazy and more often than not downright stupid. We WANT the government to hold our hand and walk us to the air plane, even if it means being patted down, stripped, or xrayed naked.. Those that claim they don't see no issue with allowing a private corporation to do the exact same thing.. they think it's black and white.. it's all a shade of gray.

America gets what it deserves, I have no sympathy for this apathetic cesspool of a country..

Fascist..

Socialist..

Communist..

Democrat..

Republican ..

You can sum it all up to: Lazy, ignorant, and afraid. And because of this, the policies and procedures that develop around these attitudes and traits will only consolidate and get worse, like a giant snowball rolling downhill.. It's terrible.. it's sad.. but Americans WANT it.. they really do.. they actually NEED it..

Yes.. very well summed up. The failures of Democracy is that all politicians by their natures are cowards, thieves, and whores.

We continue to treat the symptoms rather than the disease. It's like some cancers...there is no cure.
But we add pill after pill, treatment after treatment, all the while making the patient sicker and weaker.

They feel they have to do something, but are not really sure what to do. They've chosen the wrong path in putting private law abiding citizens through this.
