(NaturalNews) When I recently wrote about opting out of the TSA's naked body scanners and then being patted down by a TSA agent, that pat-down was conducted by the agent using the back of his hand (http://www.naturalnews.com/030100_naked_body...). As of today, that technique is no longer in place. The TSA's new guidelines call for agents to use their "palms and fingers" to "probe" your body for hidden weapons. This means TSA agents will now be feeling up your crotch, palming your breasts and fingering your testicles as part of their increasingly humiliating "X-rated pat down" technique.

This new "palms and fingers" pat-down technique (also known as "groping" passengers) was announced by the TSA last week alongside an ambitious new plan to roll out 1,000 new naked body scanners by 2011. Any air traveler who opts out of the naked body scanner, of course, gets groped by a TSA agent using the new "palms and fingers" pat-down technique.

The upshot is that the TSA either wants to SEE your naked body or FEEL it with their hands.

This new rule also affects pilots, by the way. And just yesterday, ABC News carried a report about a U.S. pilot who said was so upset by the enhanced pat-down technique that he called it sexual molestation and found that afterwards, he could not safely operate the airplane. (http://abcnews.go.com/Travel/major-pilots-un...)

So now we have the TSA actually terrorizing pilots and turning them into angry, abused victims of sexual molestation who must then fly our airplanes. How's that for TSA safety?

Violating the privacy rights of Americans

All this is a gross violation of Americans' Fourth Amendment rights, of course. It's also demeaning and (intentionally) humiliating to air travelers. In addition, the use of naked body scanners on children violates child porn laws.

The TSA, through its groping of passengers and the capturing of their naked body images, is guilty of committing numerous felony crimes. If a security guard at a grocery store, for example, groped little children with his fingers and took "naked body scanner" pictures of customers, he would be arrested as a sex crime offender. So why are we letting our own federal government commit sex crimes against us when we'd be thrown in prison for the same lewd behavior?

There are actually registered sex offenders on the books who have done far less than what the TSA is doing to air travelers right now.

The TSA, even more insidiously, doesn't even tell passengers they have a choice to opt out of the naked body scanners. When I first wrote about it, most NaturalNews readers had no idea they could opt out. Even the opt-out process seems to be designed to bring humiliation to passengers, because once you announce you're opting out of the naked body scanners, TSA agents yell, "Opt out! Opt out!" in order to draw attention to you. Following that, they now feel up your crotch and private parts with their fingers and palms.

The message is clear: Go through the naked body scanner or we will sexually molest you.

That's the new TSA... always watching your back by feeling your genitals first.

Ratcheting up the police state

And it's only getting worse. That TSA agents feel your crotch and breasts with their palms and fingers would have been unthinkable just five years ago. But this is how a police state works: They introduce one element at a time and then wait for everybody to get used to it before adding another layer of intrusion to their lives.

Today it's a naked body scanner and an X-rated feel-up. Five years from now, it could be TSA agents stripping off your clothes in a private screening room and inserting their fingers into your anus and other areas to check for "weapons." If the American people don't start standing up to these illegal, intrusive and humiliating body searches, there's no end to where the TSA could take this. Give an agency like the TSA unlimited power to bully the public, and they will inevitably keep pushing the limits until they are stopped.

None of this seems to have anything whatsoever to do with actual air travel security, by the way. It all seems focused on maximizing the humiliation of air travelers while indoctrinating people into a police state mentality (so they get used to government agents strip-searching them on demand).

This is the new Amerika. Your Constitutional rights have been thrown out the window. Any expectation that you might be treated with respect as a law-abiding citizen have been utterly abandoned. You are now treated as a slavilian (a slave / civilian), and the federal government believes it has the right to commit sex crimes against you and your children any time it wishes.

Even our airline pilots are treated as criminals and terrorized by the very agency that claims to be protecting us from terrorism! The TSA is the new Gestapo, and they will absolutely will not stop with these police state tactics until they are forced to.

It is time that We the People stood up against the TSA Gestapo and started suing their agents for sexual molestation, child pornography, kidnapping, conspiracy and violating our Fourth Amendment rights.

We intend to keep covering this story until this TSA tyranny is halted.

Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
