Rand Paul Detained In Nashville For Refusing Full Body Pat Down

Tyler Durden's picture


The political news on this slowish Monday morning comes courtesy of the TSA and those who object to their policies, such as in this case Senator Rand Paul, son of Ron Paul, who has just been detained for refusing a full body pat down. This should teach Rand Paul to not accept Wall Street (and/or Warren Buffett) donations of free NetJets hours.

Source: Ron Paul twitter account

Bloomberg has some more:

  • Irregularities during screening must be resolved before passenger can proceed to secure area of airport, TSA says
  • Paul underwent screening by millimeter wave imaging technology; targeted pat down is procedure for resolving alarms from scan, TSA says
  • Paul tells AP he was “detained” in a small cubicle, missed his flight to Washington, situation reflects concern TSA shouldn’t be “spending so much time with people who wouldn’t attack us”

From Reuters:

Republican Senator Rand Paul, son of presidential candidate Ron Paul, was detained on Monday by security officials at an airport in Nashville, Tennessee, an aide said.


Press secretary Moira Bagley wrote in a Twitter message that the senator told her at 10 a.m. EST, that he was being "detained by TSA (Transportation Security Administration) in Nashville."


Ron Paul, a congressman and Republican presidential hopeful, tweeted that his son was being detained for refusing a full-body pat-down "after anomaly in body scanner."

Something tells us the TSA budget is about to be severely curtailed...

Well call me crazy, but I like feeling secure when I'm travelling by air. Do you seriously think we can just let any potential terrorist fly without proper security measures? LOL. Let me guess, you're another PURIST libertarian who doesn't want ANY pat downs or body scanning at airports. Sorry but the world is not black and white, it comes in SHADES OF GREY.

There are plenty of successful models for airport security that don't involve groping and potentially harmful scanning devices. 9/11 wouldn't have been stopped by a porno scanner. It could have been stopped by locking the cockpit door, and by having passengers that are more aware and less like sheep.

Not Bad, but you highlighted the wrong section.  In anticipation;

While its true that there is a legal difference between detention and arrest, (Arrest is for suspected criminals, detention is a law enforcemnt procedure for purposes of assisting an investigation (questioning, for example), the TSA still violated Article 1 Sec 6;

and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.

IF Paul was questioned in any capacity by law enforcement, they violated Art1 Sec 6

Hate to pick a nit, but they are going to argue that detention is not arrest, and they will be right.

You know, I'm with MDB on this one.  The father, Ron Paul, is a kindly looking gentelman, but Rand Paul looks kind of aggressive.  I'm not so sure about him.

Besides, the TSA, who protect us from terrorists, can't show favoritism.  We all have to bear up under their inspections.

It might make sense if the whole terrorist hoax wasn’t being run by the overthrown federal government. WTC 93’ was entirely created by the US gov. and run by a special unit with the FBI… It came out in court that the FBI directed the whole thing through their informant, former Egyptian Intelligence Officer and explosives expert, Amhad Salem. The FBI even supplied the explosives.

 And get this – the Bush family business partners, (Bin Laden) got a big chunk of the repair contract.

The Oklahoma City bombing was run by Clinton, elements of the FBI and ATF.

The Underwear Bomber was a drugged up patsy put on the plane by the CIA with no passport or boarding pass. It came out later the State Department was ordered to allow him to get aboard…National Security. Body Scanners were announced in this News/Lie Cycle.

9-11 is the biggest hoax in history.

There are about eight crime families responsible for this entire nightmare.


Turn off your TV, quit ingesting the medicated food and water, and use your head.

benb's picture

Federal District Court of NY (IIRC)  -

The WTC 93 Bombing was a totally financed and run US Intel operation. Salem, the former Egyptian military officer and demolition expert, was an FBI informant. He was brought here by the US government for this purpose. When Salem was told by his FBI handler to use real explosives instead of inert ingredients as he understood the phony terror plot would go he began recording hours of telephone conversations with his FBI handler. They tried to frame him up at the trial but when he produced the recordings he was not only allowed to walk but was paid a million dollars by our criminal government to get lost. It all came out in the trial the there was never any corporate media coverage and most Americans  were too lazy to dig deeper and get themselves informed. Check it out.

Do yo have any evidence that Homeland Security and the TSA are "protecting us from terrorism". I have seen no evidence that domestic terrorists exist (other than the USA government and related apendages) or for that matter that there is any REAL terrorist threat.

The purpose of the TSA is to CAUSE us to feel fear, insecurity and anger so that we do not question the slavers. You have obviously become a very good and fearful slave.

How to handle the TSA:

Wear loose fitting sweat pants or shorts, with no underwear. Take a viagra before the flight. While in line, look at something on your Iphone that gives you are giant boner. Then try to maintain it through the patdown. If you can approach the patdown with an actual pants-tent, you won. Be sure to moan when fondled. Loudly.

And I'm sure that a full, impartial, follow-it-where-ever-it-leads investigation into the events of 9/11 would have illuminated this conclusion. You make assumptions that are not based on any research. Unfortunately, much of the evidence was destroyed by the very act, and subsequent traces were "vaporized" at Fresh Kills [Fuck! Got to give them points for humor, black as it is.].

Hello Crazy,
I support your desire to fly on a high-security flight, never mind that the plane's wings are cracking and falling off, however, I will take my chances with the rest of my fellow Americans who think the TSA and Homeland Security have gone too far.

I would suggest for those Americans who want the other passengers screened, create a separate commercial airline where the passengers can have a fully body cavity search prior to boarding the flight. I am sure that other passengers would pay a premium for the experience and satisfaction of knowing that everyone has passed anal inspection.

The rest of us ignorant masses can take our chances with the terrorist. Have I mentioned the probabilities of terrorist/hostage take-over?

Guess you never heard about the Valujet crash?  Wreckage all depends on velocity and impact angle.


edit:  Saw your second link (above).  Proves my point.

HAHAHA what a tool, that plane crashed in a fucking swamp dipshit. The lack of found wreckage was due to a thing called MUD sitting in three feet of water which is pretty hard to find things in. My company worked on part of that investigation ( I was not emploeyed here at the time). You obviously have no idea of what you are talking about. Would you like to go through the physics of all this now? You say it is velocity and impact angle correct? Now do the math....flight 93 was reported at striking the ground at over 500mph at nearly a 90 degree angle. If you do the math you'll find that only 500mph there isn't enough force created in the impact to vaporize the steel in the engines nor is it enough to vaporize all remnants of the individuals aboard.

Plus I would think recovering 40tons of wreckage in the midst of the location was pretty darn good. Certainly better than the 0% found at the Shankesville crash site.

I'm tired of talking to children, someone else stand up and try to prove the math adds up.

Of course I don't expect that but what I do expect is for people to use their own minds. There is also this thing called science and scientific formula to figure some of these basic questions they are asking. Someone hears that the plane was traveling so fast that when it hit the ground it vaporized and they believe it without further thought and question anyone not in the main stream who says otherwise. It is unacceptable and nor is it mine or others duty to make them believe otherwise, that is something they need to do for themselves. Why believe me over the NIST report? I say don't. Do your own investigation and math and you'll see almost immediately that what they claimed happened in Shankesville, WTC 7, and the Pentagon is physically impossible.

I happen to steer clear about talking about the towers because people are too emotionally traumatized to believe anything like that could have possible been done by people who we put our trust in. It is akin to accusing someone's mother of murder.

Again I don't want people to believe me I want them to do the math and research themselves.

For crying out loud. The standard method of dealing with a hijacking prior to 9/11 was to get the plane safely on the ground and then deal with the demands. Using the plane as a suicide bomb changed that midway through September 11th, and Flight 93 proved it.

I think the chance of a plane crash by mecanical failure is much higher than a teorist attack. 10 years after the 9/11, we are still in panic mode. BTW what's the color of the emergency system? still orange?

 Lets define the actual threat. How many US air passengers have perished as a result of terrorism as a percentage of the whole. I would wager the odds are about the same as an airplane crashing into your living room.

  How many societies have went on to lose their essential freedoms after submitting to overreaching govt in the name of some scary threat?  A lot more.

 I would much rather take that 1 in 100 million or whatever chance of getting blown up than giving up one iota of freedom.

Sorry, but I'm usually frank with people, and I would say to you "your a fucking idiot" MillionDollarBoBo.  If you think TSA is protecting your shill ass from terrorists,  you're dumber than I thought.  Tell me how many terrorists have been thwarted by the TSA?

So now that Delta and American have started a new program for a quick pass through security for about $100, I'm sure you are much safer too.  Its all about control and money dipshit.  And the real terrorists in the world are who?  I'd love to hear your response to that question.  Sounds like you're missing some grey matter dipshit.

He got onto the plane because an intelligence operative got him on the plane because Level 3 needed to make the sale of a lifetime.  It's that fucking simple!

What a joke--when I first read this, I thought you were trolling, but you really mean it.  You're really scared of terror in the skies, aren't you?  You're right, the world isn't black and white, but what I keep having to come back to is that having any semblance of real freedom means that you have to take on certain risks in life.  I'm much mroe concerned with the erosion of basic freedom--freedom of association, freedom of travel, which is what the TSA represents in a very big way.  I am much less concerned about air piracy and terrorism, mainly because the whole 9/11 narrative that we have been told to believe stinks, quite frankly.  It's all been a lie.  The body scanners are a lie--they were "sold to us" using fear, the most cynical marketing tactic that ever existed. 

Whether I'm a libertarian purist or not, I would rather just take my chances than have all this bullshit nonsense (and very expensive nonsense at that) shoved down my throat ALL THE FUCKING TIME.

Do you really think that Senator Rand Paul is a terrorist? Oh, you do. 

TSA screening is a joke. Security theater. Why? Because each passenger is allowed a quart bag full of 3 oz containers. So 20 people take a pint through security and assemble it on the secure side. That totals 2-1/2 gallons. This is all about getting people to comply, not airplane security.

Terrorists have government IDs to bypass and override any "security" measure. They fly with you, they walk into your buildings, they have access to your bank accounts. They don't blow you up only as long as they don't have such orders.

Thus, two options:

  1. You are crazy.
  2. You are one of the ID bearers.

Israel uses profiling to single out potential security threats on flights through its airports and they are VERY successful at stopping bad people and things from getting on airplanes, and they do it with a lot less people than we do:  Of course it takes 20 TSA agents to have a combined IQ of over 100...

Yep..

May I suggest that before heading for the airport everyone eat a big plate of beans and drink several liters of beer. Then after insisting on a full body search rather than a scan - my god, what an embarrassing accident. (Just be sure to step away from your shoes and clothing and aim in the proper direction before you lose control of your body functions.)

Yep, and 4th amendment states:

"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."

Maybe when more and more are subject to the same tyranny that the rest of us navigate on a daily basis, the public will see exactly where we are.  The Kelo decision, civil forfeiture laws, NDAA, Patriot act, the use of the COFEE program, gun laws, and a myriad of other extra-constitutional measure shows just how little effort is paid to the rules for government.

IMHO, this action would not even violate that clause (article 1 sec 6, clause 1), as he was on his way to a rally (first clause), and was not stopped because of any of his speeches/debates in his senatorial capacity (second clause).
