    Activist Post: TSA Opt-Out and Film Campaign Scheduled to Launch January 20th, 2013

    "Liberty Groped"​

    The push-pull between the TSA and travelers who have had enough of their presence continues to rage. Naked image scanners and Backscatter X-ray devices are under pressure from all sides, despite the best efforts of Michael Chertoff and a U.S. government that seems to have invested in tyranny.

    Word is spreading that the scanner technology being used in airports is exceedingly harmful, along with being a gross invasion of privacy. The thug-like behavior of TSA agents has further angered a sizable portion of the flying public, leading to numerous grassroots efforts to check the power of the TSA in lieu of a non-responsive federal government.

    An increasing number of people are becoming informed and are deciding to opt-out of the radiation, as well as to not provide X-rated details to criminals that have included thieves and pedophiles. The TSA has not been deterred, even as outrage mounts, because the success of the machines and the right of TSA agents to grope the public in airports will determine the future of their presence throughout America. In fact, Backscatter machines already are being deployed in street roving vans, and are most likely headed to a mall near you if the public doesn't continue to raise its voice.

    A strategy for direct participation in demanding your freedom is outlined below.

    The federal over-reach of the TSA must be met with full resistance, as they already are beginning to deploy outside of airports with their spin-off VIPR teams. Several legislative initiatives have been formed such as that of G. Edward Griffin and Idaho state representative, Phil Hart, who have made a strong case that the states have jurisdiction over this federal program.

    However, beyond legislation, grassroots activism is essential. Alec Scheer, founder of We Are 1776, has built upon the work of others and has set up a monthly campaign that can steamroll into a mass movement of peaceful resistance. Opt-out and film campaigns will make it known that tyranny is never acceptable, especially when introduced under the guise of keeping us safe. Furthermore, taking such action is a valuable lesson in direct participation, as opposed to looking to bought-and-paid for leaders to make the swift changes that are necessary. Lastly, it will put tyrants on notice that We the People are not intimidated and they will be documented while violating the Constitution.
    We are in a race against time, as the TSA is planning a day-long event on January 22nd to outline its I-STEP program for small businesses. Government Security News cites a TSA notice which indicates a broad approach to their mission that goes well beyond the airport:

    I-STEP’s primary objective is to design, develop, implement, and evaluate the security training and exercise program for use by [Transportation Systems Sector] operators (e.g., Freight Rail, Mass Transit, Pipeline, Aviation and Highway modes and maritime security community) in their efforts to continuously improve security plans and operations to prevent, respond to, and recover from a [transportation security incident]. (Source)​

    We must take action and mobilize. Once full deployment is reached, it will be very difficult to reverse.

    For starters, print off this flyer, get your camera or video recorder ready and head to an airport near you to distribute information and hold the TSA responsible for their violations of civil liberties.

    Videos can be posted to the Facebook wall listed below.

    The folks at Activist Post hope to continue Prison Planet's "Opt Out and Film Campaign" against the TSA, according to the link a friend sent me. They're calling for passengers to "opt out" of the TSA's porno-scanners and "film" the resulting sexual assault on January 20th. Further details here.

    Thanks to Activist Post as well as to all the travelers who will turn the tables on the TSA that day, publicly shaming these deviants and unconscionable monsters.
