The States have jurisdiction over whole-body scanners and backscatter machines if they threaten the health of the People within the State and are proven to be harmful. Idaho State Representative Phil Hart has written legislation opposing the airport and security whole-body scanners, and is adding backscatter machines to the legislation. nnHart's bill would require the Idaho State Director of Homeland Security to investigate the health effects of the x-ray machines before approval for use. If they are approved, then they would only be used as secondary screening devices. This legislation can be used as a model by other States. You can find the model legislation on his website at : www. hart4legislature.com , at this link: http://hart4legislature.com/2010/03/hb573-whole-body-scanner-legislation/ Less

This tech has been around for a while, but with DHS making more grants to local police departments in the next 24 months, you need to be aware of this. Uses for this tech allow the police to see what you have. Whether they use it to peek at what you own as a 'preview' in preparation for requesting a warrant, assuming they go through those motions, would allow them to add additional details to the warrant... again, assuming that they do that. So many agencies today don't even bother because the Constitution is being ignored wholesale, especially by federal agencies.nnSuppose the ATF uses this to scan your conveyance, your domicile, your storage shed or garage. The abuses of this agency is not merely legendary, it is infamous. Did you buy your guns privately (without papers), or through proper channels? If you did it privately so as to avoid registration (which is legal in many states), ATF may have a 'heightened interest' in your property.nnThis van's stated capabilities also include scanning for specific elements such as nitrogen and oxygen, or sulfur, or aluminum, or silver or gold. Should the government know whether you have silver/gold coin? Should the government know if you own machine tools such as a lathe? Or whether you make things using press-form technology and powdered aluminum, etc?nnThe purpose of this technology is to identify private citizens who possess the resources, materials, and equipment that would be valuable to a resistance movement. This technology is about control and suppressing the people!nnFROM THE MANUFACTURER:nnAS&E's Z Backscatter Van™ (ZBV) is a screening system built into a commercially available delivery van.The system's "drive-by" capability allows one or two operators to conduct X-ray imaging of vehicles and objects while the ZBV drives past.nnThe ZBV can be operated in stationary mode by parking the system and producing X-ray images of vehicles as they pass by. Screening can also be done remotely while the system is parked. Remote operation allows scanning to be done even in dangerous environments, while maintaining low-profile operation. Less

(NO-RAD-ZONE) Joseph Reiss VP Marketing American Science and Engineering describes the newest technology. Backscatter technology can be applied anywhere and is being sold to the government as well as to the public. There is no regulation and no way of regulating how long they scan individuals. Radiation is dangerous. Radiation causes cancer. This can be a weapon and is definitely a violation of civil rights. It has no medical use and is too dangerous. Backscatter vans can pull up outside any home or building and monitor what is going on inside. They may witness anything they like for hours if not longer. Individuals are submitted radiation without any knowledge. If a family unit is present children are subjected as well, unbeknownst to anyone. No amount of radiation is safe. Children and the elderly are more susceptible to DNA damage from radiation. If you had the money you could fry someone without them knowing it. 1/2 hour of backscatter/x-ray surveillance would cause cancer. AS & E specs show ratings for a 5 rem flash saying it's relatively harmless. There is no information or specs on surveillance type radiation readings. Unpaid scientists disagree with the use of such products. Less

I'll be presenting this work at EHSM: http://ehsm.eu/nnI built an X-ray backscatter imaging system from parts found on eBay. This system works by scanning a very thin beam of X-rays across the target, and measures the amount of backscatter for a given beam position. The beam is scanned mechanically by a rotating chopper (collimator) wheel, and by tilting the rotating wheel on an orthogonal axis. The output image is generated on an oscilloscope by matching the horizontal scan speed to the rotating wheel, and using a potentiometer to measure the vertical axis position. The scope's brightness (z axis) is controlled by the amount of backscatter signal received by a large-area detector. Thus, the image is constructed bit by bit. I used a long-exposure shutter on my camera to see the image formed by the moving oscilloscope trace.nnhttp://www.google.com/patents/US5181234 Less

Had I known that the incendiary ammo was only for the LMG's, it would have been a no brainer.

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. -Benjamin Franklin (1775)nnTyrants don't tell you they are stealing liberty in order to dominate you, they assert they are protecting you from a nebulous threat. As potentially dangerous as prolonged, frequent exposure to the full body scanners may be, nothing is more terrible than the theft of our dignity, and common decency. Although the outcry exists, the fact that many hundred more millimeter wave and backscatter scanners are on order by the TSA should tell us that they are here to stay. nnWill you allow your wives and children to be fondled by government empowered security thugs? Mainstream media is announcing the TSA's intention to squeeze, fondle, and grope the breasts and genitals of those who opt-out of naked scanner screening. The horror stories are beginning to surface. You are being systematically dehumanized, and your most private personal space is being violated. Will you just submit, and take the humiliation?nnVideo aired November 8, 2010 - NBC's Meet the PressnnFAIR USE NOTICE:nThese videos may contain copyrighted material.

While the TSA hires rapists to grope and fondle little girls, women, and the physically disabled in the name of security, it gives the green light to illegal aliens to fly planes and work at US airports, emphasizing once again that invasive "pat down" procedures have nothing to do with terrorism and everything to do with treating the American people with less respect than farmyard animals.nnAs USA Today reported, despite the TSA's outright lie that the new measures do not constitute groping or even squeezing, "The searches require screeners to touch passengers' breasts and genitals."nnThe TSA chose Meg McLain for special screening. They wanted her to go through the new porno-scanners. When she opted out, TSA agents raised an enormous ruckus. When she asked some question about what they planned to do to her, they flipped out. TSA agents yelled at her, handcuffed her to a chair, ripped up her ticket, called in 12 local Miami cops and finally escorted her out of the airport. Listen to her story as she told it on radio show Free Talk Live last night. Things are truly getting scary.nn http://wewontfly.com/question-tsa-risk http://FreeTalkLive.com Less

http://johnnyedge.blogspot.com/nI was approached by a man in slacks and a sport coat. He was accompanied by the officer that had escorted me to the ticketing area and Mr. Silva. He informed me that I could not leave the airport. He said that once I start the screening in the secure area, I could not leave until it was completed. Having left the area, he stated, I would be subject to a civil suit and a $10,000 fine. I asked him if he was also going to fine the 6 TSA agents and the local police officer who escorted me from the secure area. After all, I did exactly what I was told. He said that they didn't know the rules, and that he would deal with them later. They would not be subject to civil penalties. I then pointed to Mr. Silva and asked if he would be subject to any penalties. He is the agents' supervisor, and he directed them to escort me out. The man informed me that Mr. Silva was new and he would not be subject to penalties, either. He again asserted the necessity that I return to the screening area. When I asked why, he explained that I may have an incendiary device and whether or not that was true needed to be determined. I told him that I would submit to a walk through the metal detector, but that was it; I would not be groped. He told me that their procedures are on their website, and therefore, I was fully informed before I entered the airport; I had implicitly agreed to whatever screening they deemed appropriate. I told him that San Diego was not listed on the TSA's website as an airport using Advanced Imaging Technology, and I believed that I would only be subject to the metal detector. He replied that he was not a webmaster, and I asked then why he was referring me to the TSA's website if he didn't know anything about it. I again refused to re-enter the screening area.nnThe man asked me to stay put while he walked off to confer with the officer and Mr. Silva. They went about 20 feet away and began talking amongst themselves while I waited. I couldn't over hear anything, but I got the impression that the police officer was recounting his version of the events that had transpired in the screening area (my initial refusal to be patted down). After a few minutes, I asked loudly across the distance if I was free to leave. The man dismissively held up a finger and said, "hold on". I waited. After another minute or so, he returned and asked for my name. I asked why he needed it, and reminded him that the female supervisor/agent had already taken a report. He said that he was trying to be friendly and help me out. I asked to what end. He reminded me that I could be sued civilly and face a $10,000 fine and that my cooperation could help mitigate the penalties I was facing. I replied that he already had my information in the report that was taken and I asked if I was free to leave. I reminded him that he was now illegally detaining me and that I would not be subject to screening as a condition of leaving the airport. He told me that he was only trying to help (I should note that his demeanor never suggested that he was trying to help. I was clearly being interrogated.), and that no one was forcing me to stay. I asked if tried to leave if he would have the officer arrest me. He again said that no one was forcing me to stay. I looked him in the eye, and said, "then I'm leaving". He replied, "then we'll bring a civil suit against you", to which I said, "you bring that suit" and walked out of the airport. Less

Janet Napolitano said that the feds were looking at changing pat down procedures for pilotsnnPrison Planet.comnMonday, November 15, 2010nnTSA Administrator John Pistole told CNN's John Roberts this morning that the feds were looking at changing pat down procedures for pilots, a first indication that the government is beginning to back down in the face of a nationwide backlash against naked body scanners and intrusive airport groping measures.nnSpeaking about how he and DHS chief Janet Napolitano met with pilots representatives last week, Pistole said, "Well obviously they're a trusted group in so many different ways and so it makes sense to do some type of different type of screening which we will explore and I think have a way forward here in the near future."nnAdding that he didn't want to speak prematurely, Pistole said "There are options that we are looking at that will make sense."nnHost Roberts made the point that screening pilots for weapons was pointless when pilots have the biggest weapon they could possibly have -- the plane itself -- in their hands.nnHowever, Pistole did nothing to address similar measures being directed against the traveling public which amount to little less than sexual molestation, and had no answer to why airport officials are threatening people who refused to be groped with $10,000 dollar fines, as in the case of a man who had a run in with TSA goons at San Diego International Airport this past weekend.nnDespite the TSA's blanket refusal to amend measures that are stoking outrage across the country and leading many to decide against flying until changes are made, this first step in the feds being forced to back down on one level is obviously a sign of progresnnIt has been established that the implementation of the aggressive groping techniques had nothing to do with security and was solely designed to force people into the body scanner, which as Columbia University and other scientists have proven increases the risk of cancer.nnIn addition, the body scanners would not even have stopped underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab from boarding Flight 253 on Christmas Day.nnThe feds have finally accepted the fact that common sense needs to be applied to screening pilots, and that same "intelligence-driven" process, as Pistole labels it, now needs to be applied to ordinary travelers.nnIt is not "intelligence-driven" to subject toddlers to sexual molestation in the name of stopping terror. A "risk-based" approached should not include targeting the very people who represent the least risk -- women, children, the elderly and the disabled -- who are precisely the groups that have been on the receiving end of the most humiliating degradation at the hands of TSA.nnhttp://www.prisonplanet.com/big-sis-caught-lying-to-american-people.html Less

SAN MATEO COUNTY, Calif. nDA of San Mateo County Steve Wagstaffe said his office will prosecute TSA employees who engage in lewd and lascivious behavior while conducting Homeland Security mandated patdowns at the San Francisco International Airport in San Mateo County.nn"The case would be reviewed and if we could prove the elements of it, that it was inappropriately done with a sexual or lewd intent, that person would be prosecuted," Wagstaffe told the Berman Post on Tuesday.nnWagstaffe told Alex Jones that county police will be sent to into the San Francisco International Airport. If they witness TSA employees engaged in criminal conduct, they will make arrests and the DA's office will prosecute. Sexual battery in Mateo County is a felony if the molestation occurs beneath clothing and makes contact with skin and a misdemeanor if the touching occurs outside clothing.n nNews report on San Mateo County DA announcing his office will arrest and prosecute TSA for sexual molestation.n nnThe new government mandated hands-on searches are used for passengers who find naked body inappropriate, when something suspicious appears in screening, or randomly. They can take two minutes per passenger and involve sliding of the hands along the length of the body, along thighs and near the groin and breasts, according to the Associated Press.nnIn addition, a district attorney in the county south of San Mateo, Santa Clara, told Wagstaffe his office will also prosecute TSA employees for inappropriate sexual behavior at the San Jose International Airport.nnSince the new search procedures went into effect, the web has exploded in opposition to naked body scanners and intrusive patdowns. Reports posted by the The Drudge Report, Infowars.com, and Prison Planet.com have gone viral on the internet and forced the mainstream corporate media to cover the issue.nn"Nationwide outrage against the TSA is not only bringing to light new cases of airport abuse, it's throwing fresh attention on previous incidents that have been going on for years," Paul Joseph Watson wrote on Wednesday. Watson notes several lawsuits initiated against the TSA, including one connected to a 2008 incident at the Corpus Christi airport where the TSA exposed a young woman's breasts.nnCoverage of TSA groping and public outrage has resulted in airports around the country reconsidering the procedures.nnEarlier today, Orlando Sanford International Airport decided to opt out from TSA screening. Larry Dale, the director of the Sanford Airport Authority in Florida, said he will send a letter requesting to opt out from TSA screening, and instead the airport will choose one of the five approved private screening companies to take over, according to central Florida's WDBO.nn"The outcry is huge," Texas Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison told the TSA administrator, John Pistole, at a Capitol Hill hearing yesterday. "I know that you're aware of it. But we've got to see some action."nn"I'm not going to change those policies," Pistole promised.nnKurt NimmonInfowars.com Less
