Government thuggery rears its ugly head once again. This time in collusion between the TSA and the Obama DOJ.
In Texas, in an effort to protect citizens traveling through airports in that state, the Texas State Legislature attempted to pass a bill outlawing the touching or groping of a person’s private parts without probable cause. In other words, a restatement of the IV Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:
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.
But, since the Obama administration cares not a whit about the Constitution, the Department of Justice was quick to the cause for the TSA. Coercion and malfeasance rule the day with this administration and their minions.
A letter threatening to cancel all flights into and out of Texas was issued by the DOJ if TSA agents (or TSO according to the DOJ missive) were not allowed to continue to
grope — feel up — fondle — “perform the security screening that he or she is authorized and required by federal law to perform.”
Just to be clear, in the letter referenced in the link above, a US District Attorney who works for the DOJ has just stated publicly that the TSA is authorized by the Federal Government to grope and fondle you as you pass through their screening checkpoints.
The TSA, they of recent child groping video fame, have the full backing of the United States Department of Justice to perform these abusive, invasive, security screenings. So much for no unreasonable searches and seizures. Pun intended.
The 9th and 10th Amendments have been gutted for years and that truth is further reinforced by this blackmail and coercion. Now, the 4th Amendment has been overturned with the blessing of the Obama Justice Department. The First Amendment is under continuous attack and the 2nd Amendment is so wrapped up with red tape, it’s damn near impossible to say it’s still valid.
TSA and the DOJ collaboration means that Texas lawmakers are SOL.
