    This was all over news outlets this weekend -- many dozens of hits in Google News.

    KGW: Body scanners come to Portland's airport

    AGITPROP/TSA spews this out by the truckload every time they install new scanners somewhere. It's part of how they've been trying to assuage public opinion since late July. But note the fib they slipped into this one:

    The German experience at Hamburg was quite the opposite: 69% required closer examination, including 54% false positives.

    One grope at a time. One grope at a time.

    Is it just me, or are their lies & deceptions becoming more frequent & more obvious?

    The TSA is trotting out the same lies they started with, because they are counting on the U.S. public's notoriously short attention span. The lies they started with are the lies they plan to finish with, so their "plan" is to simply tell new variations every few months. That's why Pistole keeps promising to stop sexually assaulting children every few months. That promise really does take the heat off of him for a few weeks. He uses the lie again and again, because the people he's lying to have the attention span of gnats.

    "Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on
    a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of
    it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people
    don't want war . . . . That is understood.

    But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy,
    and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist
    dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.

    Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.
    That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked,
    and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the
    country to danger. It works the same in any country."

    The way I see it, our overlords are constantly telling us we're being attacked, and we at TUG, and those out there like us, are being told we lack patriotism and are "exposing the country to danger." And it's working.

    The problem is, that it's working for them. Did you read the comments at the bottom of the page?????? My God!! These people are brain dead. I'm heading to the Airport in a few hours, and we all know what I'm going to see. An endless line of smiling faces with their arms in the air, getting radiated.

    I read that story on the PDX scanners and there was zero investigation done of the claims, just as if they'd take dictation from Blogger Bob. Now you know why newspapers are headed for the dustbin of history.
