Obama's TSA Molestation Joke

John Seiler:

Writing here yesterday, I insisted that, in his State of the Union Address, President Obama must order the end of the TSA molestations of air travelers, especially of grandmothers and young girls.

Instead, he joked about it! Watch this short YouTube:

Did you notice California’s Rep. Nancy Pelosi, formerly the House Speaker, laughing! So was Vice President Joe Biden. Of course, as members of the Ruling Elite, they either take government planes or, when out office, private planes. So they don’t have to face being molested by the TSA Gestapo, nor watch the molestation of their children or grandparents. They’re insulated from what’s really happening in this once-free country. Both of them are Democrats.

But notice that new House Speaker John Boehner, a Republican, didn’t laugh. He must have read the speech beforehand and knew that if he laughed, he would outrage the voters who think Republicans will change things. They won’t. Otherwise, their first act in office would have been to pass a bill abolishing the molesting TSA Gestapo. They didn’t.

Obama’s context was high-speed rail, including the boondoggle here in California that won’t be built — despite what he said — because of the state and federal budget deficits.

His joke was that, by building it, passengers could avoid the TSA airport “pat-downs.” He lied. In fact, the TSA already has expanding its groping authority to America’s railroads. It boasts on its own Web site:

The mission of TSA’s Rail Passenger Security group is to protect the nation’s railroad passengers, employees, and properties.

TSA Gauleiter John Pistole said in an interview with USA Today:

“Given the list of threats on subways and rails over the last six years going on seven years, we know that some terrorist groups see rail and subways as being more vulnerable because there’s not the type of screening that you find in aviation,” he said. “From my perspective, that is an equally important threat area”….

Pistole said he wants TSA workers, including 47,000 screeners at 450 airports, to operate as a “national-security, counterterrorism organization, fully integrated into U.S. government efforts.”

“I want to take TSA to the next level,” Pistole said.

And that next level is higher tyranny.

Only we Americans can stop this bipartisan assault on our freedom to travel unmolested by government goons. We need a left-right coalition to abolish the TSA, the Germanic-named Homeland — Heimat in German — Security Department, the molestations, the pat-downs, the scanners that show people naked and keep recordings of the pictures, and all the rest.

We need to take them to court, as Gov. Jesse Ventura has done. We need to stop flying to put financial pressure on the airlines to get them to lobby the government to return airline security to completely private forces.

And we need to relentlessly ridicule Obama, Pistole, ex-Prez Bush, Boehner, Pelosi and the other bipartisan goons who keep us in chains. If the regime jokes about tyranny at our expense, then we can joke back. Here’s one:

Q. Was the TSA created by scientists or politicians?

A. Politicians. Scientists would have first tested it on monkeys.

Another one:

President Obama mentioned NASA in his State of the Union address. After the address, he called up NASA’s Space Center in Houston and said, “By the end of 2011, I order you to land men and women on the moon, Mars, Venus and the sun.”

NASA responded, “But, Mr. President, if we land on the sun, we’ll burn up.”

Obama shouted back, “Do you think we’re stupid here in the White House? Land during the night!”
