It seems like the American people are being pushed and goaded into making a stand, at which point the perfect excuse will exist or martial law to be applied and 'the great plan/ final solution' (whatever that may be) to be put in effect. The sad thing is that the USA is so self-cocooned that nobody will be able to come to the rescue of the people and nobody will escape.

(thnx for the welcome Romanmel

On purpose.

Makes it easier to find a boogeyman arouind any convenient corner in order to scare the sheep for easier herding.

If any and every body is a potential extremist/terrorist then sure the only one we can trust is the CorpGov sheep-herder.

But yeah, as someone else said - then I would surely wear this label with pride. Besides, I had no idea I was so edgy and danerous...I wonder if my husband will get into that?

Don't you see that the military adventurism espoused by your avatar is pretty much the reason behind all the little, if any, terrorism that we do see? Is it so heard to understand that other countries don't want to be invaded. They just want to be left alone. Let sleeping dogs lie.

Actually, Militaires Sans Frontieres was never about invading other countries. It was about giving said other countries the chance to defend against invading empires like the US. Big Boss had far greater, albeit admittedly, also far simpler, ideals to defend than those that America claims to fight for. Which is why the video game world version of the New World Order tried to have him killed, and destroyed Militaires Sans Frontieres.

In other words, I disagree, friend.

And yes, privatization isn't good either. It's all about balance. And America needs to strike that balance. The first thing to do is get rid of the porn scanners and the pedophile airport security officers.

Sheep escape from slaughterhouse!
There is always a loophole or open door somewhere. Take note!
And keep the courage of your convictions before new door is designed to block that loophole.

An internal memo was released yesterday by DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano for consumption by TSA personnel. This memo officially classifies those who are "opposed to, or engaged in the disruption of the implementation of the enhanced airport screening procedures" as “domestic extremists," explicitly including those participating in Opt-Out Day.

This is just a breath away from calling those people domestic terrorists.

These government officials have lost their minds.

The terminology contained within the reported memo is indeed troubling. It labels any person who “interferes” with TSA airport security screening procedure protocol and operations by actively objecting to the established screening process, “including but not limited to the anticipated national opt-out day” as a “domestic extremist.” The label is then broadened to include “any person, group or alternative media source” that actively objects to, causes others to object to, supports and/or elicits support for anyone who engages in such travel disruptions at U.S. airports in response to the enhanced security procedures.

I highlighted that last bit because.... well, that includes us here on ATS!

Now it would be nice if someone could actually produce the memo in pdf form.

Actually.. and no offense to the OP... I really hope this is a hoax..

My coffee pot is always on, and I'm ready to tackle these minions of the dark side any time they wish to show up! I don't call them men, real men are heros and support communities and their families. These sell outs to humanity will be told who and what they are and who and what they work for.

Guess what I am completely opposed to any TSA screen at airports and in full support of all alternative media blasting you and exposing your NWO draconian, non human actics and hope it hits the street in every town. You guys can Bring It!

I am a Patriot, a Constitutionalist, a soon to be NRA member, and a defender of freedom and rights. They can label me whatever they will, and I will wear it as a badge of honor. My family members didn't fight and die in some of the biggest wars to prevent tyranny from taking hold to sit idly by and watch our liberties stripped away in much the same fashion that these scanners strip away our clothing. When will people start to realize that what is happening in the USA is very similar to what was happening in Germany pre-WWII. The populous was brainwashed, the Jews were rounded up, and they started their campaign of destruction and total annihilation of freedoms in Europe.

This is no longer a left-wing/right-wing issue. This is an American issue. Our forefathers warned us of this over 200 years ago, and yet we as a collective populous are not seeing it. You are all to blame just as I am. We didn't "wake up" until it was knocking on our backdoors, and yet now that we have seen it, it is still possible to change things for the better. We can do this without violence. The FOIA is one way. Demand transparency and force them to reveal what they are planning. Arms should only be taken up as a last-ditch resort when nothing else can be done. Are we close to that point? Not yet. We won't be there until the day the tanks are rolling down the streets and we have to keep our heads down and be quiet. When that day comes, if I'm the only one left, I won't be afraid to fight. I'd rather die on my feet than submit on my knees.

We all may just be "arm chair posturing" to some, but I can tell the level of commitment and honesty in some of the poster's words. We need to break the chains of fear, and tell our government in a collective voice to screw off, back down, and let us have our life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. One hundred years from now, history will either speak of the great accomplishments of the American people in the second American Revolution, or they will simply state that we were all stupid and let this happen to ourselves. We need protection from our own Government, yet we are undeserving of heroes because we haven't learned to stand for ourselves. Or at least that concept has been wiped from our collective memories.

The day will come where you have to make a decision: fight, or submit like a dog on a leash. Think about it. The only thing holding some back is the fear of death. Why fear something that is inevitable anyway? My uncles and grandfathers feared death while in the jungles of Vietnam, or in the English Countryside during WWII, or in the Pacific during the same conflict, yet they fought. They fought to preserve the inalienable rights of human beings, because they knew of something greater than themselves.

The will is still there, and we need to "awaken the sleeping giant" once again.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all, and much love.

Peace be with you.

Locally, the protests weren't as massive as expected but I actually find it disappointing.

What happened to the electronic "sniffers" that were supposed to be implemented to detect hazardous materials?? These would negate the assumption that travelers needed to be exposed to x-rays and intrusive pat downs that are now mandated (clearly a violation of the 4th amendment, without probable cause).

Kudos to those that had the smarts and integrity to protest with signs & refusals yesterday.

It offends me to the core to be called a "domestic extremist" by the likes of Janet Napolitano. She is a flat-out traitor to this country and calls us extremists? Yes, you bitch, I called you a traitor. Why don't you go ahead and charge me with libel so I can make my case in open court?

People should try driving where they want to go (if it's within the US). It'll give you a better idea of he amazing geography that surrounds you. Planes are too expensive anyway, and there's different "classes" of seating. How fascist is that?

And if I have to drive from the North Atlantic coast to southern California?

I'll pay far, far more in gas, time and food, sightseeing or no.

I know, but how much is the sightseeing worth? Maybe people should rework their idea of travel completely. Jetsetters be damned. Chemtrails be damned.

Enough for it's own trip; not enough to schedule an extra week before and after a company trip in order to simply dismiss the issue off on everyone else.

Stand up, fight back and the world will change. If we simply avoid the issue they'll just keep finding ways to corner us.

Last night I watched the documentary End of America, in which it is argued America is rapidly becoming a fascist, closed society.

It was very interesting and this story is just one more confirmation for me that it is actually true.

Our threat is from the insidious forces working from within which have already so drastically altered the character of our free institutions — those institutions we proudly called the American way of life.” – Douglas MacArthur

I agree on the fighting back part, but I still don't want to give my money to the airline industry, which I detest for personal reasons.

posted on Nov, 25 2010 @ 03:36 PM
I mentioned in another thread that my wife and I have already altered our plans. We are driving from CA to VA for Christmas. So what if it takes more time and money? We are doing our tiny, little bit to help put a dent in the airline pocketbooks. Will it matter to them? Nope, not even a little bit- quite the contrary, when they hear about futile acts like mine, they laugh. I care not, I sleep at night. My grandmother always said, 'You'd cut off your nose to spite your face." She was right. Sometimes we need to take a stand, even if it sacrifices some money, time and convenience.

Its amazing how the country survived during the 70's and 80's with having to give up all their freedoms now we are really safe.

From now on all my friends and I are going to wear extra loose pants, no underwear, and pop a couple of Viagra before traveling by air. Lets spread the word. Maybe through our collective bravado we can shame them into submission. I'm sure a few hundred young men with a friendly smile and a bare butt will make them think twice the next time they violate our constitution.
Give 'em hell boys

Spose you'd be considered a terrorist to drink a gallon of colonscopy prep before heading to the airport? "Hey theres something in here" gooooood lord!!!

So I guess im a radical or extremist because I don't like my body being irradiated by some machine that we know almost nothing about. Plus it doesn't have to be regulated by anyone because it isn't being used in the medical field. I never liked how my doctor would go behind some blast sheild before he zapped me, atleast the doctors give us a lead flack jacket for some protection. I feel very sorry for the TSA agents standing by this unregulated x-ray machine all damn day long.

Anyone hear about the van's with this same type of scanner mounted in the back? Now they can look at your naked body inside your home by simply driving by the front of the house.
