Current events, politics and life in general from the perspective of a conservative woman in New York
A Florida woman claims a TSA officer forced her wheelchair-bound, 95-year-old mother battling leukemia to strip her off diaper for a pat down.
Jean Weber said the horrific incident occurred last weekend at the Northwest Florida Regional Airport, the Northwest Florida Daily News reported.
“It’s something I couldn’t imagine happening on American soil,” she told the newspaper.
Weber claims her mother, who is in the final stages of leukemia, was on her way to Michigan to visit family members. She needed a wheelchair because she did not have the strength to travel through the airport.
The 95-year-old was then subjected to an extensive search, Weber told the News Herald, but she wasn’t sure why.
Her mother was taken off the line to a partitioned area for a search, then moved into a private room for a more elaborate examination, Weber claims. She noted she was not in the room at the time.
A TSA officer came out to tell her that her mother had soiled her diaper, and it needed to be changed for them to complete the search, she said.
To add insult to injury, the TSA is defending their abuse of this poor 95 year old woman in the final stages of leukemia!
“While every person and item must be screened before entering the secure boarding area, TSA works with passengers to resolve security alarms in a respectful and sensitive manner,” the agency said in a statement Sunday. “We have reviewed the circumstances involving this screening and determined that our officers acted professionally and according to proper procedure.”
Unfortunately, this kind of thing is to be expected given our government’s refusal to profile Muslims, who are the real threat. Remember, Janet Napolitano actually said there’s no logic in profiling Muslim men under the age of 35. So instead of stopping all immigration from Muslim countries, our government goes out of its way to be politically incorrect, rather than offending a hostile minority group.
Barack Hussein Ogabe is purposely letting the TSA loose on law abiding Americans. He’s obviously in a snit about the shellacking he and his party of donkeys received November 2. But there’s even more to it. You have to read this!
At what point will these “grope-a-dopes” draw the line and consider the actions of the government a provocation? When will people begin to connect the dots of the globalist agenda and become non-compliant?
I believe that is the larger question being raised by the puppeteers behind the proverbial curtain.
The erosion of our rights has been in progress for decades and under multiple administrations, but with this administration in particular, there is more to it. Rather than ending this madness, the Obama administration has instead ramped up the very tactics that had progressives calling George Bush a criminal. Why? It seems that people cannot understand that under the umbrella of globalism, political party is irrelevant. Both sides drink from the same trough.
The continuity of criminalizing non-criminal behavior of free citizens while giving a pass to others transcends political parties and is an integral component of social conditioning. Although it did not begin with Obama, he is integral in accelerating the implementation of the global power elite’s goals and objectives. Like the sand in the top of an hourglass appears to flow faster as it reaches its end, so too does the agenda of the proponents of a new world order. We are now at that point in time.
It would be a mistake to believe that this administration is merely mishandling the current throw-down between the TSA and airline passengers at the boarding gate. It is not being mishandled, but carefully crafted into organized chaos designed to elicit social unrest. Anyone refusing to comply with the increasingly oppressive federal rules will be considered domestic terrorists, much like we’ve seen with individuals and groups concerned with our Constitution, second amendment rights, and pro-life causes.
Under Obama, the nation’s health care industry has essentially been nationalized, and facing financial difficulties, the government became heavily involved in the auto industry to the point of de-facto nationalization. Why not the air travel industry, which in 2007, was responsible for generating just over $1.3 trillion in economic activity, or 5.6% of the total U.S. economy. The airline industry employed over 11 million Americans who earned about $396 billion.
The enhanced screening at our airports is not helping the airline industry, a vital part of our economy and infrastructure, but hurting it. This nonsense has the capacity to deliver a death blow to the airline industry. Could this be part of the larger agenda? Just look at the history over the last two years, and I believe the answer will become quite evident.
It happened to Sam Wolanyk, a gun rights activist from San Diego.
In what can only be described as TSA handlers gone wild, the San Diego Harbor Police arrested an area resident for refusal to complete the screening/security process yesterday. This is the same airport that created the TSA security catch phrase “don’t touch my junk.” John Kliner of San Diego started the airport screening firestorm last week as Americans head into the busiest travel week of the year in the United States.
This time the defendant, Sam Wolanyk says he was asked to pass through the 3-D x-ray machine. When Wolanyk refused, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) personnel told him he would have to be patted down before he could pass through and board his airplane.
Wolanyk said he knew what was coming and took off his pants and shirt, leaving him in Calvin Klein bike undergarments.
“It was obvious that my underwear left nothing to the imagination,” he explained. “But that wasn’t enough for the TSA supervisor who was called to the scene and asked me to put my clothes on so I could be properly patted down.”
It was clear to Wolanyk that TSA only wanted him to submit to a pat-down and if they were interested in ensuring the safety of all passengers they would have rifled through his clothes, carryon baggage and acknowledged that he was not carrying any illegal paraphernalia on his person.
Once Harbor Police arrested Wolanyk, he was handcuffed and paraded through two separate airport terminals in his underwear to the Harbor Police office located inside a different terminal at the airport than Wolanyk had originally gone through during his TSA security process.
Another woman was arrested for filming the TSA screening process.
Now I for one, would like to know where the Republicans who took over the House stand on this. How come there’s no news of them going after Obama and the TSA for the harassment of lawful American citizens? If Republicans had any backbone they would have been hammering away at the Obama regime over this. Personally, I think Obama is trying to get his revenge for the shellacking his party received November 2. What do you all think?

In an effort to make themselves look like they actually care about protecting Americans from terrorists, and that they’re really not sitting on their posteriors all day doing nothing, TSA employees have resorted to fondling a little girl. In this case, it was the daughter of a news anchorman, who videotaped the incident on his cell phone. You’ll notice that in his story the father interviewed someone with the TSA, who said agents must be taught to show sensitivity to children.
The only thing the TSA needs to do is to start aggressively profiling people from Middle Eastern countries, especially young Muslim men, and women in hijabs. If I had my way, all immigration from these rogue terror states would be stopped. But being that America has become so pathetically politically correct, aggressive profiling is the only choice (not that that would happen either, but one can only hope…)
TSA chief John Pistole, who is of course an Obama appointee, has come out swinging against Americans who object to being groped or subjected to excessive radiation. He has basically said, if they don’t submit, they can’t get on the plane.
“I see flying as a privilege that is public safety issue. So the government has a role in providing for the public safety and we need to do everything we can in partnership with the traveling public, to inform them about what their options are,” Pistole said at a breakfast with reporters organized by the Christian Science Monitor. “I clearly believe that passengers have a number of options as they go through screening. But the bottom line is, if someone decides they don’t want to have screening, they don’t have the right to get on the plane.”
Yeah right. I seriously doubt he would be so argumentative against hijab wearing Muslim women, whom CAIR says should only be checked from the neck up? After all, Pistole, like his boss Barack Obama, has a soft spot for Muslim terrorists.
Pistole and Valerie E. Caproni were the two FBI officials who approved a memo laying out the FBI’s policy on the limits to the interrogation of captives taken during the United States’ war on terror. The memo was from the FBI’s General Counsel, to all offices, explaining that FBI officials were not allowed to engage in coercive interrogations; FBI officials were not allowed to sit in on coercive interrogations conducted by third parties; FBI officials were required to immediately report any instances of suspected coercive interrogation up the FBI chain of command.
