Police State USA: TSA Gestapo Empire

by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
It doesn’t take a bureaucrat long to create an empire. John Pistole, the FBI agent who took over the Transportation Security Administration on July 1 told USA Today 16 days later that protecting trains and subways from terrorist attacks will be as high a priority for him as air travel. 

It is difficult to imagine New Yorkers being porno-screened and sexually groped on crowed subway platforms or showing up an hour or two in advance for clearance for a 15 minute subway ride, but once bureaucrats get the bit in their teeth they take absurdity to its logical conclusion. Buses will be next, although it is even more difficult to imagine open air bus stops turned into security zones with screeners and gropers inspecting passengers before they board.

Will taxi passengers be next?  In those Muslim lands whose citizens the US government has been slaughtering for years, favorite weapons for retaliating against the Americans are car and truck bombs. How long before Pistole announces that the TSA Gestapo is setting up roadblocks on city streets, highways and interstates to check cars for bombs? That 15 minute trip to the grocery store then becomes an all day affair.

Indeed, it has already begun. Last September agents from Homeland Security, TSA, and the US Department of Transportation, assisted by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, conducted a counter-terrorism operation on busy Interstate 20 just west of Atlanta, Georgia. Designated VIPER (Visible Inter-mobile Prevention and Response), the operation required all trucks to stop to be screened for bombs. Federal agents used dogs, screening devices, and a large drive-through bomb detection machine. Imagine what the delays did to delivery schedules and truckers’ bottom lines.

There are also news reports of federal trucks equipped with backscatter X-ray devices that secretly scan cars and pedestrians. 
With such expensive counter-terrorism activities, both in terms of the hard-pressed taxpayers’ money and civil liberties, one would think that bombs were going off all over America.  But, of course, they aren’t. There has not been a successful terrorist act since 9/11, and thousands of independent experts doubt the government’s explanation of that event.

Entire Western Financial System Near Collapse?


  1. Perhaps they're looking for Lincoln Buroughs and Michael Schofield? They should try to spend more resources on that missing place, Oceanic Flight 815, rather than finding some engineer and the death row inmate who shot Hilary Clinton's brother.

    They are dangerous those two, but they have to go through all of this just to find them? lol

  2. No money appears to available to expend long term unemployment relief but there is stll plenty of money for bailouts and wars as an already insolvant America spends its way by increased deficit spending towards a third world living standard for its people.
    If the ‘ex” agent /contractor Osama was still alive he would no doubt be celebrating as the war of Americans in Afghanistan has already been longer than the Russian war in Afghanistan and there is no end or ‘victory” in sight .
    Business has never been better.
    Employment of mercenaries and terrorist businesses of the bin laden type is at record levels.
    Some “security” agent contractor businesses employed by government internally and abroad are now listed on the US stock exchanges. This respectability is a great advance since Bin ladens days ,when he had to function as an undercover money under the table “anti-terrorist” agent of the CIA and for the Cheneys of America.
    Rumors that Bush or the Bin laden family construction are involved in providing xray machinery or security service at US airports are completely unfounded .
    This recent security scare business is near monopoly service of the Chertoff gang of mercenaries, a mafia like gang some dual citizen nationals that formed in the Homeland security Dept itself .
    So ooverty creation for Americans is well in hand as increased tax increases and austerity will be required in order to pay the cost of the wars and occupation of other countries and internal security scams .
    Mud cakes may eventually be all that it is possible to buy as the value of food stamp purchases is inflated away.

    Bondholders that buy American government debt are also celebrating the long war as they capture control of future government revenues and finance x ray machines.
    The Christian Science Monitor reports;
    As leaders at the NATO summit in Lisbon meet this weekend to discuss strategy in Afghanistan, US war planners have been signaling that troop withdrawals set to begin in 2011 will be mostly symbolic and that the handover to Afghan forces in 2014 is “aspirational.”
    Such could cost American taxpayers handsomely at a time when deficit cutting has gripped Washington. According to one estimate, softening those deadlines could add at least $125 billion in war spending – not including long-term costs like debt servicing and health care for veterans.
    “I don’t think anyone is seriously talking about cutting war funding as a way of handling the deficit,” says Todd Harrison, a defense funding expert .

    But what a party for the patriotic Treasury bondholders, and the banksters bonuses from bailout funds on wall st ,will total another $140 billion this year alone!

  3. Post like this make me think you have gone completely mad! Gestapo!!!! Really!!!

  4. Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, the same guy who started us down the road to deficits???? How did robbing social security to pay for Reagan tax cuts work out?? Maybe they are worried about things like this Doctor!

    ESCONDIDO, Calif. (KABC) -- A large cache of explosives and toxic chemicals found in an Escondido home is still there, a week after it was found. For now, it is too dangerous for the bomb squad to go in.

    Yellow crime-scene tape surrounds the rental home in the Escondido area. Authorities said they found the largest stash of homemade explosives of this type in one place in U.S. history.

    George Jakubec, a naturalized U.S. citizen who came from Serbia, was arrested last week. The 54-year-old faces dozens of bomb-making-related charges.

    Authorities discovered the explosives after a gardener stepped on explosive powder in the backyard. He's still recovering from the blast that left him with eye, chest and arm injuries.

  5. Another false flag attack last night. A "car bomb" failed to blow up in Portland at a Christmas tree lighting ceremony and this morning I get to read this!
