WB7: You want to know what I have real problem with?

Michael Jerkoff.

"Chertoff's role has been strongly criticized by passenger right advocate Kate Hanni, the founder of FlyersRights.org, who opposes the use of the scanners on privacy and health grounds, citing government studies about radiation exposure."

"They're trying to scare the pants off the American people that we need these things," Hanni told The Huffington Post. "When Chertoff goes on TV, he is basically promoting his clients and exploiting that fear to make money. Fear is a commodity and they're selling it. The more they can sell it, the more we buy into it. When American people are afraid, they will accept anything."

This is the perfect example of the "for profit crony democracy" that you heard about earlier this week. I was going to write more about this, but I don't have to. All you have to do is read this article to learn why I am outraged: Fear For Sale.

This guy Jerkoff leaves his position as head of the Department of Homeland Security and starts his own company by soliciting away Homeland Security employees. Something you can potentially be sued for in the private sector. Then he signs consulting agreements with and buys shares of companies that will benefit handsomely from his authoritative fear mongering campaign.

Do you ever see or hear any disclaimers or conflict of interest disclosures when he appears on TV promoting this stuff?

Of course not!

Meanwhile, Team-0 appears to have swallowed his backscatter--shnook, slime and sinker.

I don't know whether these back scatter scanners are necessary or not. I don't know whether bomb sniffing dogs can do the same job (although I have my suspicions).

But I do know one thing friends, we are getting screwed yet again by American cronyism.

Unconstitutional, Time to End the Scanner Scam 11/30/10

Gordon Duff
Veterans Today

Let’s begin with one fact. We are using expensive, dangerous and illegal scanners in our airports for one reason. A year ago, a single “terrorist,” really a moronic dupe with a defective bomb in his crotch, was escorted onto a plane for Detroit, no search, no passport, not even a ticket, placed on a plane by an airport security officer who is a former IDF “commando.”

These are the facts, plain and simple. The government depends on you not knowing this so you will let them either radiate you or grope you, you get to choose, next time you fly. In order to get away with this affront to decency and common sense, they hid the fact that their “terrorist act” never really happened. Everyone involved, airline personnel, security, all the video, the statements, the names of those who smuggled the “Crotch Bomber” through Schiphol Airport, all missing, vanished into thin air, along with the civil rights of over 300 million Americans.

All we have is a story, more comedy than reality, the scraps of a bomb that could never work, could never damage a plane, a bomb we are supposed to believe traveled 15,000 miles from Yemen through Ghana, Nigeria, the Netherlands to Detroit to burn a hole in someone’s pants. We know security escorted our criminal mastermind onto the plane.

There is a 99.9% chance that they also gave him the bomb. Maybe it was in a Duty Free bag. Nobody ever asked, nobody checked, nobody is asking, nobody is reporting about it. Who has that kind of power?

Get a real job. 

The amount of times this man was on MSM after he was in the government tells you the full story of how tied the MSM is to the game.

Have not slept well since finding out you are so far away in HK. But memory cells being what they are, I had this flashback and now I can imagine you taking care of things much more clearly...

WBInfinity... Who is this superhero???

Come on HD. Couldn't you at least have used a tripod when you were filming your morning cartoons?

His Dudeness's picture

Cereal mounted tripods are SOOOOOO expensive!!!

But the 'snap, krackle, and pop' cancelling microphone worked great, didn't it??

Thanks for the wonderful post.
I will be also flying next month. I happen to own a utili kilt which is made of very heavy cotton so you can't feel squat through it. Wearing that would make for a interesting enhanced pat down. Question is am I brave enough because I certainly don't have any shame.

TSA Gestapo Empire

By Paul Craig Roberts 


"If Al Qaeda was anything like the organization that the US government claims, it would not be focused on trivial targets such as passenger airliners. The organization, if it exists, would be focused on its real enemies.:...

.."Think about it.  Would a terror organization capable of outwitting all 16 US intelligence agencies, all intelligence agencies of US allies including Israel’s Mossad, the National Security Council, NORAD, air traffic control, the Pentagon, and airport security four times in one hour put its unrivaled prestige at risk with improbable shoe bombs, shampoo bombs, and underwear bombs?  " ....

data bases.  didn't have that in the Constitution days, did they?  Ever have the government "have an informed discussion about why you left that job of yours 10 years ago"?  I have....right along with "now i'm gonna show you how to talk nice to girls, mo fo!"  i never understood why they needed their hands on their guns "cuz i said something to a girl."

andyupnorth's picture

So Al-Qaeda and the TSA have the same goal... it all makes sense now!

"[Al-Qaeda's] objective is not maximum kill but to cause a hemorrhage in the aviation industry, an industry that is so vital for trade and transportation between the US and Europe."

Apparently it took OBL to show us what a serious enemy could do.

Al-Qaeda's objective is to panic us like a stampeding herd of cattle ... how's that working out so far?

I have come to realize that Zerohedge equals ZERO MONEY. All the NOISE in this blog will make you ZERO dollars really.

Talk about the US Dollar crashing, where is it now?

Talk about AAPL and Tech bubble? How high are these stocks today?

Talk about the end for the banks? Like this country will run without them. Zerohedge is naive.

Talk about Disney and Net Apps crashing right after announcing? Look at them now.

Bottom line, thanks for the effort to point the economic issues we face. But these issues DO NOT translate into a wipe out of Western Societies economic system.

Western Corporate innovations are just too strong and the world development depends heavily on it. Who will replace them? BRIC companies....not in our living years.

Yes, the market will correct....doesn't it always? It's natural.

"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself"

Nah.....young, aggressive Harvard MBA's are selling the things to each other to leverage their profit margins.

Jesus Christ, Willie.....This makes me feel old. I actually wanted to do this, but my parents told me it was a rip-off....even after I pointed out the part that everyone would be eager to buy a copy from me at 20c....no dice. My next project was the Charles Atlas dynamic tension thing....but, the powers-that-be stomped on that dream too...pointing out that we did not live close to a beach, nor did I have a girlfriend. My argument that West Texas had plenty of sand that some bully could kick in my face fell on deaf ears.

My question is this...Has anyone ever read this magazine?

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

I was introduced to it in a dentist's office. The trauma of the dental procedure wiped my brain of any memory of the magazine.


Bob's picture

My instant response as well . . . how time flies.

You start off wrong and get worse from there.

This blog is not about making money. Period. Try Yahoo Finance.

Tnx Confused...sounds like a new holiday ;-)

Great vid WB, got a chuckle on Barney, hope it gets mucho hits over the holiday.

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.
Whaddya know.

This music vid is EPIC billyboi. John Lennon would approve. Should we be asking ourselves, what is their endgame? The xray scanners and body searches are just the latest in their taking of liberties. Will this lead to forced computer chips under the skin, forced vaccines, big sis cameras in the home, gps in everyone's car, fema camps for protestors ? If we don't demand our constitutional rights they will be gone.
