(NaturalNews) U.S. Senator Rand Paul was detained by the TSA earlier today after refusing to consent to an illegal, unconstitutional "enhanced pat down." Such pat-downs are a total violation of the Fourth Amendment
of the U.S. Bill of Rights, and they even constitute felony crimes against private citizens
as they involve TSA agents thrusting their fingers inside the anus or vagina of air travelers.
At 10 a.m. Monday, Sen. Rand Paul's staff tweeted that the Senator was "currently being detained by the TSA in Nashville." Ron Paul tweeted in a follow-up post that "My son Rand is currently being detained by the TSA at the Nashville Airport... for refusing full body pat-down after anomaly in body scanner." (http://twitter.com/#!/RonPaul/status/161468829996826625
The Daily Caller
reports that Rand Paul's first scan produced an "anomaly" that prompted the TSA to demand Ran Paul consent to a full-body pat-down (http://dailycaller.com/2012/01/23/report-tsa-detains-sen-rand-paul-in...
). He refused, causing the TSA to detain him by refusing to allow him to proceed to his gate. In a strict legal sense, this is also known as "kidnapping."
TSA lies about the incident
The TSA, of course, is so morally corrupt and wholly incapable of telling the truth that they lied about the incident, claiming Sen. Rand Paul was never "detained" at any point. He was merely "denied" the ability to proceed to his gate.
This is the kind of deceptive, contorted mind game the TSA
continues to play with the American people. Remember when the TSA strip-searched a couple of elderly ladies behind closed curtains? They insisted that removing their clothes wasn't a "strip search." (http://www.naturalnews.com/034323_National_Organization_for_Women_TSA...
) And when the TSA
promised to stop searching the diapers of infants and babies, they lied about that, too, and they continue to conduct such crude, highly inappropriate searches to this day.
Ron Paul lashes out at total police state tyranny
In response to all this, U.S. Presidential contender Ron Paul lashed out, saying "The police state in this country is growing out of control."
He continues: "One of the ultimate embodiments of this is the TSA that gropes and grabs our children, our seniors, and our loved ones and neighbors with disabilities. The TSA does all of this while doing nothing to keep us safe. That is why my 'Plan to Restore America,' in additional to cutting $1 trillion dollars in federal spending in one year, eliminates the TSA."
White House sides with TSA (and tyranny)
The White House responded today with what can only be called a declaration of a total police state dictatorship
in America. White House spokesperson Jay Carney, who previously defended Obama's open killing of American citizens without due process (http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=1E3C8FBEAFD167D8F97A8ADBE8F2E451
), said, "I think it is absolutely essential that we take necessary actions to ensure that air travel is safe."
This, too, is a total mind game. It presumes that the TSA makes travel safe (a complete lie) and that the TSA has the constitutional authority to even engage in such actions (also a complete lie). It is the height of executive arrogance from a White House that has repeatedly betrayed the American people to the point of outright treason
with the signing of the NDAA (http://www.naturalnews.com/034537_NDAA_Bill_of_Rights_Obama.html
It's confirmed: Even U.S. Senators are now prisoners of the police state bureaucracy
Most astonishing in all this is that now even U.S. Senators are total prisoners
in the police state run by the executive branch and all its out-of-control "fiefdoms" of regulatory tyrants. The FDA, EPA, TSA and DEA have all demonstrated a complete disregard for U.S. law
and basic human rights. They are out-of-control agencies that openly murder citizens, steal private property, destroy wholesome food, intimidate the innocent and seek to exert their tyrannical power of the public at any cost
I have warned NaturalNews readers about this on multiple occasions: We are witnessing the rise of the police state
in America, week by week. The VIPER road checkpoints (http://www.naturalnews.com/030596_TSA_security_checkpoints.html
), the sexual molestation of air travelers, the pepper-spraying of innocent protesters (http://www.naturalnews.com/033805_Occupy_Wall_Street_police_beatings....
), the total criminal theft of private property by the DEA in marijuana raids, the attempted SOPA act to shut down the internet (http://www.naturalnews.com/034682_SOPA_online_piracy_protest.html
)... it goes on and on.
If we do not stand up and resist this police state tyranny RIGHT NOW, we will be left as road kill on the highway to Hell. The TSA is Nazi Germany rising up right in front of our very eyes just as I warned back in 2010 (http://www.naturalnews.com/030356_TSA_Nazi.html
The TSA is illegal, unconstitutional, and operated in total violation of the fundamental principles of freedom and human rights. TSA agents are confirmed child molesters, child porn distributors, pickpockets, thieves and ego-tripping maniacs
who should all be arrested, rounded up, and mass-indicted for their crimes against the American people.
The TSA is an agency out of control. It needs to be immediately cut to ZERO employees, completely de-funded, and subjected to Dept. of Justice indictments. Janet Napolitano is an unindicted criminal conspirator
who is engaged in the planning and commission of acts of treason
against our Republic.
The solution? www.RonPaul2012.com
If elected President, Ron Paul will seek to completely dismantle the TSA and restore dignity
(and liberty) to America.
