Want to be Felt Up by Government Personnel?

This is what happens if you refuse to walk through a radiation-emitting scanning machine at your local airport. The United States government is obsessed with people having hidden bombs on their bodies going so far as to even screen little children. Only under considerable pressure the Federal Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced this past week that it will no longer screen children under 12. They are still worried though that our teenagers could be terrorists in disguise.

“In episode after episode the TSA has demonstrated a knack for ignoring the basics of customer relations,” writes the Associated Press. It should be no surprise, considering their mission, that they cannot do their work “without treating everyone from frequent business travelers to the family heading home to visit Grandma as a potential terrorist.”

Rep. Ron Paul has introduced the American Traveler Dignity Act, which would strip away some of the TSA’s power over travelers by denying them immunity for any crimes committed in airport security stemming from their new invasive search procedures. The New York Times writes, “There is no excuse for the bumbling, arrogant way the Transportation Security Administration has handled questions and complaints about its new body-scanning machines and more aggressive pat-downs. The Times reported on Friday that civil liberties groups have collected more than 400 complaints since the new pat-downs began three weeks ago.”

Some airports are considering another way to show dissatisfaction with what the government is doing and that is to ditch TSA agents altogether. Federal law allows airports to opt for screeners from the private sector instead.

Not sure exactly why they are afraid for public safety when they themselves are the greatest threat to Americans and what used to be the cherished American way of life. Certainly Americans are not enjoying what their government is doing to them. “Some offer graphic accounts of genital contact, others tell of agents gawking or making inappropriate comments, and many express a general sense of powerlessness and humiliation. In general, passengers are saying they are surprised by the intimacy of a physical search usually reserved for police encounters. ‘I didn’t really expect her to touch my vagina through my pants,’ said Kaya McLaren, an elementary schoolteacher from Cle Elum, Wash., who was patted down at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport last Saturday because the body scanner detected a tissue and a hair band in her pocket.” writes the New York Times.

“This technology can go right up a woman’s skirt,” says Susan Herman, President of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and law professor at Brooklyn Law School. The Christian Science Monitor writes, “As the debate about the Transportation Security Administration’s screening procedures pings across the Internet, a growing chorus of critics is asserting that electronic imaging scans and ‘enhanced pat-downs’ both represent an unconstitutional violation of the Fourth Amendment, which protects against unreasonable searches.” As the high-travel Thanksgiving holiday approaches, travelers and lawmakers are up in arms over airport security measures. On special web sites, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the U.S. Travel Association have been getting thousands of complaints. Facebook and Twitter are smoking with posted outrage.”

Time Magazine writes, “The new ‘strip search’ scanning machines at airport security checkpoints are increasingly causing furor over issues of privacy, decency, and health. Whether or not you feel the new backscatter body scans (let alone the security gropes) are an overly humiliating invasion of privacy, there’s no arguing that the scans expose you to extra radiation. Many passengers and some scientists say the excess radiation exposure could pose a health hazard to frequent fliers and to young children. The scans may be exposing passengers to more radiation than Napolitano is letting on.”

The Associated Press writes, “As the government rolls out hundreds more full-body scanners at airports just in time for crowds of holiday travelers, scientists worry that machines might malfunction, raising the risk of cancer. ‘The thing that worries me the most is what happens if the thing fails in some way and emits too much radiation,’ said Arizona State University physics professor Peter Rez. ‘The risk for failure is higher than in a medical setting because the machines are operated much more often, and by TSA workers without medical training,’ Rez said. ‘Though the scanner images do not reveal what’s beneath the skin’s surface, the radiation they emit could potentially affect breast tissue, sex organs and eyes,’ said David Agard, an imaging expert at the University of California at San Francisco.”

The Science of Radiation Danger

The government insists that full-body scanners at airports are safe. The federal government insists many things are safe when we damn well know they are not. In July of 2005 the National Academy of Sciences came to the conclusion that the preponderance of scientific evidence shows that even very low doses of radiation pose a risk of cancer or other health problems and there is no threshold below which exposure can be viewed as harmless. [1]

Many scientists generally assumed that low levels of radiation are harmless since they produced no immediately observable effects. However during the past few decades tremendously improved radiation measurement techniques coupled with detailed laboratory studies revealed many previously unsuspected hazards from low levels of ionized radiation. Some researchers have even added the view that chronic low-level exposure to radiation poses a greater risk than short-term, high-level exposure.[2]

Just being alive today is to walk through the valley and shadow of death in terms of radiation exposure. Background radiation on earth has increased in the nuclear age, coming from all the above-ground testing of the last century, nuclear plants, nuclear waste, uranium mining, and from depleted uranium weapons that are used in the American, British and Israeli armies, navies, and air forces. In addition there is constant and increasing exposure to other forms of radiation from microwave towers, cell phones, wireless phones, and computer Wi-Fi systems.

The medical establishment throws caution to the wind and subjects people to ever-higher levels of radiation with the addition of massive use of these new body scanners at airports. According to the Times, “Americans today receive far more medical radiation than ever before. The average lifetime dose of diagnostic radiation has increased sevenfold since 1980, and more than half of all cancer patients receive radiation therapy.” CT scans can deliver the radiation equivalent of 400 chest X-rays. An estimated 70 million CT (for computed tomography) scans are performed in the United States every year, up from three million in the early 1980s according to a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

Radiation exposure became a major concern in October 2009 after the FDA said it was investigating 206 cases of patients being exposed to toxic doses of radiation during CT scans of the brain at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. High doses of radiation can cause skin burns, cataracts, and other injuries—and, in extreme cases, cancer and death. The FDA said it received 1,182 medical device reports about problems between December 31, 1999 and February 18, 2010.

But don’t worry, if the government says it’s safe then it must be. Obama administration officials are insisting that the measures now in place are justified by the risks. We have lost the war on terrorism for the terrorists have increasingly been able to scare the west into becoming increasingly controlling of their own populations. Now when Big Brother says jump, we just say: How high? The destruction of human freedom and dignity is worth it right? I wonder what’s next.

Special Note: I suggest everyone in the States read Dr. Rabbi Gabriel Cousens letter Defend Your Dinner – Fight Bill 510 in the Senate

I am writing to tell you about an opportunity to turn the tide in the battle to secure authentic freedom for organic farming and non-GMO foods. For some time now, we have been aware of an impending threat to the foundations of our health. Having stopped a mandated swine flu vaccine, and having addressed, to the best of our ability, the Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010, it is time for us to nip Bill S 510, or the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, in the proverbial bud. Bill S 510 is currently stalled in Congress. If we act now, we can ameliorate its potentially deadly implications, or even end it altogether.

Bill S 510 amends the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) and expands the authority of the Secretary of Health and Human Services to regulate food. It also authorizes the Secretary to suspend the registration of a food facility. Given the fact that Bill S 510 “considers” harmonization with Codex Alimentarius, this appears to be a strategic maneuver, in a long line of attacks, on our health and rights. Read More…..

[1] The linear no threshold modelor LNTM is a model of damage done by radiation. This model assumes that the response to radiation exposure is linear and that this linear relationship continues to very small doses, that is to say that there is no threshold of exposure below which the response ceases to be linear. When it comes to radiation if a particular dose of radiation is found to produce one extra case of a type of cancer in every thousand people exposed, the LNTM predicts that one thousandth of this dose will produce one extra case in every million people so exposed, and that one millionth of this dose will produce one extra case in every billion people.

[2] The Petkau effect: discovered by Abram Petkau at the Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. Whiteshell Nuclear Research Establishment, Manitoba, Canada in 1972 Dr. Petkau discovered that at 26 rads per minute (fast-dose rate) it required a total dose of 3,500 rads to destroy a cell membrane. However, at 0.001 rad per minute (slow dose rate), it required only 0.7 rad to destroy the cell membrane. The mechanism at the slow-dose rate is the production of free radicals of oxygen (O2 with a negative electrical charge) by the ionizing effect of the radiation. The sparsely distributed free radicals generated at the slow-dose rate have a better probability of reaching and reacting with the cell wall than do the densely crowded free radicals produced by fast-dose rates.

  • Helpful data, many because of the author. It is puzzling to me now, but usually, the usefulness and importance is overwhelming. Very much thanks once more and good luck!

    When the NYT and AP come out with reports like they are doing, I naturally get suspicious. They are so very much part of the problem. Could the TSA be overdoing it now so that travelers beg for another way of doing things: private screening contractors? Could there be private screeners waiting in the wings to take us down an even more perilous path? Will the private security/mercenary group called Xe be the new screeners? They used to be called Blackwater.

    While one wants an end to the obvious abuses, accepting a bigger nightmare is out of the question. Wholesale litigation against the TSA and protests are the right way to go. More airports should refuse to have these scanners and pat downs. Sheriff departments and DAs should rigorously enforce the 4th amendment rights of travelers. Refusal to travel will tell the airlines that something needs to be corrected. What is a crime in the general society has to be a crime in the airports as well!

    I want to thank you Dr Sircus for the information you are sharing… I do hope and pray that people will open their Hearts first of all, and then lift their heads out of the sand,and take note that we are living in a slow but ever forceful dictatorship,and unless we awaken to our truth,we will never be aware of all the lies and deceit that our government has been shoving down everyone’s throat…

    All of the security systems used in all Air ports of the world, are an electronic treat to human life .these laser?or Ex ray type systems are inaccurate, and uncontrolable treats, and therefore disrupts the human energy field and human Aura; it is my belief that exposing the human body to such a shock of electrical magnetic field, is an opening for cell mutation and consequently Cancer!!!,The security systems are run by morons that don’t have a clue why they are there,after these people are brain washed, and after all the hammering in their feeble minds has taken place, assume a very authoritative position ,like talking at a very high tone of voice to people of all walks of life,of course in a very loud and impressive authoritative way that would even awaken and unearth the dead…But as many of these poor very deficient beings say,( We are here to protect you(Don’t take that to your bank!!! ) it might bounce!!! It is time that we all take action against this organized dictatorship,that has, and is compromising our very existence, health,and our well being…

    Before you know it, the freedom that we all sing about is going to be the thing of the past, if we wait and do nothing,the big word Freedom will only reside in the history books…

    Terrorism is headed by four Entities;Israel,England the Vatican,and the USA…to take over the world with a new world order of control… The homeland security system has been implemented to put more fear in the masses and to control everyone…

    Terrorism was home made!!! like 911 for instance, that was a perfect plan ,so it murdered 3.500 people,or so?so what? it gave Bush the authority to attack Iraq and control the oil and the riches…

    Take the cam trails for instance; most people are not aware what these criss -cross, white stripes are.

    I will tell you what they are!!! they are Boron, Mercury,Aluminum ,and other deadly particles omitted by high speed jets that are destroying our aquifer,our soils and our trees…
    We are already experiencing devastating effects in many parts of this country…Once the soil is saturated with these deadly chemicals,we wont be able to grow our food with our traditional seeds that have been used for thousands of years on this planet.

    This now means that Monsanto can promote their Genetically modified seeds and have everyone on planet earth on their knees,because we all will be forced to buy their seeds,and by the way, once the soil is infested with all these chemicals no one is really sure that any of these Genetically Modified Seeds will ever germinate and sustain life…

    So this is an other part of the dictatorship plan to control and exploit mankind through food manipulation… Sending jets in our skies everyday to omit these deadly chemicals,and of course the scientists with Government officials that run the show are telling everyone that is for the good of humanity, and to control Global warming.Not so!!! Global warming is man infused through lack of fossil fuel control and emissions…

    These Cam trails are all insane missions that have,and are costing me and you the tax payer billions of your hard earned dollars that have nothing to do with Global warming.

    Global warming is caused by the fossil fuels that are rampant, in our atmosphere,and should at all costs be banned and go into more natural alternatives,and by the way, there are many, and have always been available…

    If man would have put aside the Greed and monetary gain,and the control of the poor and the illiterate, we the people would have been in a different state of being today…

    We are literally running out of time,the shifts of energy are getting stronger everyday ,and we all need to open up to the truth,and make our voices heard, it is imperative and a God’s order…

    I could go on for ever,but unless we the people raise our awareness and get rid of these insane politicians,that have destroyed the will of mankind,and vote in people that are literate,loving and compassionate that are capable of making decisions,on behalf of the real people those people that have a heart not big Pharma and Monsanto

    There will be very little hope on this planet unless we the people will eradicate the evil that is present..

    I bless everyone that has the courage to act for the highest good of all.
