Airport shut down by incompetent TSA authorities after jars of honey flagged as explosives

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews) At the Bakersfield airport in California, TSA authorities recently shut down the entire airport after finding what they thought was a container of liquid explosives.

Luggage screeners discovered five Gatorade bottles full of an "amber" liquid. TSA agents then opened the bottles and complained they smelled "a strong chemical odor." They then complained of nausea and were taken to the local hospital for treatment.

According to Reuters, "Kern County Sheriffs deputies, fire crews, FBI agents and members of a joint terrorism task force responded to the scene and spent the day questioning Ramirez before further tests showed that the liquid was honey."

In other words, Ramirez was interrogated by the FBI for hours while being presumed to be a terrorist. (

And then it turned out the "explosive amber liquid" was just HONEY.

Apparently, TSA employees are so unbelievably retarded that they don't even know what honey smells like or looks like. When they smell honey, they mistakenly believe they're under a chemical attack! And then they engage in all sorts of theater by acting like they're experiencing nausea so that they can be carted off to the hospital and take the rest of the work day off.

These are the people who are supposed to be protecting America from highly-motivated, highly-intelligent terrorists? Give me a break...

The TSA can't catch actual terrorists, but it's really good at flagging innocent people as terrorists and wasting thousands of hours of time (and millions of dollars for the airlines) declaring bogus terrorists emergencies that only serve to inconvenience everyone.

Chemical detection tests are bogus

What the TSA hasn't yet acknowledged is that their chemical detection tests are complete quackery.

As we've reported before, a bottle of Dr. Bronner's soap will test positive for illegal narcotics. A bar of home-made chocolate got Ron and Nadine from Living Libations arrested (and their child stolen from them by authorities) and accused of trafficking illegal drugs (

Honey now apparently tests positive for explosives. Is there any food or liquid substance that truly safe from being declared a bomb by incompetent TSA employees?

It's fairly obvious at this point that the real mission of the TSA has nothing to do with security. It has everything to do with brainwashing Americans to surrender to police state searches while living in a never-ending state of extreme fear. The TSA, in other words, is just a vehicle by which Americans can be programmed to kow-tow to the herd mentality.

And then they ratchet up the invasions of your privacy one step at a time. First it's just asking you to throw away your water, then later they ask you to start taking off your shoes and belts. Before long, you're scanned with a full body scanner that shows you body completely naked -- nipples, penises, crotches and all -- while TSA agents get off on their power trip.

The images

(The original image we used here from InfoWars has been replaced with this image because the InfoWars image was a mockup "depiction" of the backscatter technology, not an actual image from the TSA.)

The TSA wants you to believe that high levels of detail are not possible with their full-body scanners. But as you can clearly see here, this technology reveals breasts and genitalia. The images they release to the public are intentionally blurred and offered a low resolution in order to create the false impression that TSA agents can't really see anything. But if they can't see anything, what good is the technology?

Clearly, the technology is only useful if it provides imaging of small details that would clearly indicate the outline of a weapon. And if it can outline a small weapon, it can also outline breasts, nipples and genitalia.

When children are scanned through these machines, the images shown to TSA agents amount to child pornography.

Hey all you perverts! Apply for a job at the TSA! There are virtually no IQ requirements, and you get to look at naked pictures of little kiddies all day long (and get PAID to do it by your own government)! Of course, if you look at the same kiddie porn pictures off the clock, you'll be arrested as a felon. But when you're on the government payroll, it's all okay.

Don't forget to bring your own portable digital camera to work so you can snap photos of all the naked little boys and girls and add them to your "TSA employee" child porn collection. Heck, you can even share the photos on YouTube under your favorite username: TSApervert6969

The TSA has failed America

Seriously, is this what airport security has now come to? ... airports being shut down because of jars of honey? Little children being shown naked on TSA scanning monitors? People being interrogated by the FBI because the bomb-detection machines spout off false positives? Huge no-fly lists that prevent innocent people from flying on airplanes while giving them no way to legitimately remove themselves from such lists?

C'mon, folks. It's time we all realized the TSA has failed America. Airport security isn't about security. Americans are simply being indoctrinated into the new Amerika police state.

And there's more to come! Soon, TSA agents could be searching your anuses and vaginas with "security scopes." (You'll get a "free" colonoscopy with every flight! Are the miles really worth it...?)

You'll soon have to open every orifice of your body to allow TSA inspection before boarding a flight, and during the flight you might be chained to your chair. So if you really have to use the bathroom, your only choice is to go in your own pants.

This speaks to the real mission of the TSA: To demean and humiliate you. People are much easier to control when they're constantly demeaned and humiliated, and full body scanners accomplish that very nicely.

So get ready to spread 'em, folks! Prepare to have pictures of your 12-year-old daughter's breasts broadcast to TSA employees. The TSA has decided that YOU (and your children) might be a terrorist, and they're going to violate your Constitutional rights at every opportunity while demeaning you in the process.

(Never mind the fact that full body scanners don't even detect explosive powders in the first place...)

Your Fourth Amendment rights are violated before every flight

Does anybody even remember the 4th Amendment these days? I'm willing to bet the average TSA employee doesn't even know what the Bill of Rights is. Protecting the Constitutional rights of air travelers isn't even in the job description of TSA employees. Their job is to intimidate people into compliance with a police state agenda -- and to follow orders even if those orders contradict the Constitutional rights of Americans.

For a quick refresher, the 4th Amendment says:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

In other words, according to the U.S. Constitution, in order for the TSA to require you to submit to a search (which includes a full body scan or even a pat-down), they must first have "probable cause" that you are carrying a weapon or other dangerous substance, and then they must request a warrant be issued by a judge for such a search. Only with that paperwork do they have any right to subject you to a search of any kind.

Americans have forgotten all that. They have surrendered their Fourth Amendment rights without even a fight or a protest. Soon, they'll all just line up to have their nipples, breasts, vaginas and penises photographed and gawked over by perverted TSA agents who now believe they are "God" and that they have the right to force you to do anything they want.

"I am God. I'm in charge."

- Actual quote from a TSA agent who works at the Los Angeles airport, who was later caught doing drugs with other TSA agents. (

"The signal strength of detected backscattered X-rays from a known position then allows a highly realistic image to be reconstructed. In the case of airline-passenger screening, the image is of the traveler's nude form. The image resolution of the technology is high, so the picture of the body presented to screeners is detailed enough to show genitalia. These images are not necessarily temporary - screeners can save the body images to the system's hard disk or floppy disk for subsequent viewing on either "the system monitor or on any IBM compatible personal computer with color graphics."
