Texans, You Have One More Shot At Anti-TSA Bill

by | Jun 15, 2011 | Headline News | 54 comments

Do you LOVE America?


    After making national headlines last month the Texas anti-TSA legislation that aimed to prevent intrusive touching by agents of the Federal government through criminal prosecution under Texas State law went down in flames once the Department of Justice stepped in and threatened a no-fly zone over the state.

    The outcry from Texans, as well as the rest of the nation, was apparently heard by legislators, and Texas may get another shot:

    It’s now up to Texas Gov. Rick Perry to rescue the nation’s travelers from the indignity of x-rated airport screening at the hands of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). On Tuesday, a state House of Representatives committee is scheduled to consider revised legislation holding blue-gloved bureaucrats criminally liable for grabbing the private parts of passengers without probable cause or consent. For the measure to proceed further, however, Mr. Perry would have to formally add it to the list of bills considered during the special session now under way.

    State Rep. David P. Simpson, the bill’s author, believes that ought to be the natural thing to do for Mr. Perry, author of the book, “Fed Up! Our Fight to Save America from Washington.” Mr. Simpson’s legislation merely clarifies that federal agents do not have a blank check to violate the Lone Star State’s criminal statutes while acting without explicit orders from Congress – no such orders exist. “This is not nullification,” Mr. Simpson explained to The Washington Times. “There is no federal law we’re contravening. We’re seeking to protect the citizens of Texas from an overreach – literally – of a federal bureaucracy that’s gone wild.”

    TSA is so brazen that the most perverted aspect of the job has become a selling point used in advertisements: “A career where x-ray vision and federal benefits come standard – become a Transportation Security Officer.”

    The Campaign for Liberty urged residents of Texas to take immediate action on the issue via an email alert:

    Rep. David Simpson, author of the original TSA Anti-Groping bill, has 102 co-sponsors for the Special Session bill HB 41. 18 Texas Senators support Sen. Dan Patrick’s Senate version of the bill, SB 29.

    Now more than a simple majority of our Texas Representatives and Senators support the Anti-TSA Groping legislation, which means that HB 41 and SB 29 will pass if these bills are brought before the Special Session by Governor Rick Perry. But we must act quickly to tell the Governor the support he has been waiting for is now there—before the Special Session ends. Perry has said that he won’t add the bill unless the support is clear. Now we can see there is no excuse, no reason to delay any longer!

    Let’s keep the pressure on Governor Perry!

    Call Governor Rick Perry’s office —  (512) 463-2000       or             (512) 463-1782 — and let him know we have confirmation that 18 Senators now support the Anti-TSA Groping Bill, SB 29. Tell him we have the simple majority that is required to pass the legislation during the Special Session. Ask what we can do to help ensure that HB 41 (formerly HB 1937) and SB 29 make it to the Special Session.

    Source: Market Ticker

    The State of Texas has 31 Senators and 150 House Representatives. According to the support above, that means a majority exists in both Houses to get this legislation passed.

    Governor Perry says that he’ll put the bill on the floor if he sees clear support for it.

    Is Governor Perry blind, or does he have no intention of getting this bill in front of the legislature? We ask because the Senate and the House ARE the people, and they clearly support this legislation by a majority.

    It’s time to stop talking like a Conservative Constitutionalist, and start taking action.

    We can’t help but feel that Mr. Perry is just playing games here, but we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.

    So, just in case Mr. Perry doesn’t feel that the People’s intentions on this matter are overwhelmingly represented, we urge Texans (and even out of staters) to contact Governor Perry’s office about what you think.

    Call, email, spread the word to friends. If Texas fails on this issue, so too does the nation. If Texas can stop the TSA, other states will fall in line, and the proposed “no fly zone” threatened by the Federal government can then be bypassed, as states that do not submit to TSA procedures may respond by creating “free fly zones” accessible from select non-grope airports (this is just one solution that might work).

    This isn’t just about groping at airports. This is about preserving the 4th amendment of the United States Constitution:

    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.

    Passage of this legislation can set a precedent that leads to further nullification of unjust, unconstitutional and flat-out illegal federal laws.

      1. Perry’s a pussy
        doesnt deserve to be a Texan

        I hope if he caves on this issue, the state runs him out on a rail..south to mexico.

        prove me wrong Perry..your balls big enough?

        • I am sure the “Justice Department” has already informed Mr. Perry of it’s intent to do it’s brand of justice on him if he brings it up.

          Again, the Patriot World awaits the outcome of one unit of the corp fighting against another. The State of Texas, of which he is CEO/Governor, is no more sovereign than that log I just flushed down the toilet.

          In the end, the State of Texas corp will not defeat the Mother corp, and the people will submit and pay the cost of the battle, with a little extra groping thrown in to remind the People of the power it possesses and they must fear.

          Or, you can just quit fearing it and refuse to fly. That would send the message loudest. If 50% of all flyers would refuse to fly for one year, in a halfway organized manner, the airlines would force the TSA goons to STOP and start inviting you to carry on your bags and fly without hassle again.

          Contrary to the article, it is not in Perry’s hands.
          It’s in yours.

          • agreed. money talks. just quit participating in all their games. we are only as controlled as we allow ourselves to be

          • Problem is, the control freaks in Washington do not want us to be able to easily travel. So fewer people flying is good, not bad, from their perspective; it doesn’t hurt the group that needs to be forced into line.

      2. Lets see if Texas has the balls they say they do.
        COME ON TEXAS!!! DO THIS!!!!!

        This freeking TSA penis, vagina and breast groping has not had one single success, while the TSA overall has failed many many test as many mnay weapons got through. This pervert groping and nude-o-scans stop nothing, besides the fact anyone with half a brain knows that if someone wants to take down a plane, they do not even have to be on the plane…

        Pervo-gorpoing is as stupid as the the no-fly lists checking incoming commercial flights for terrorists entering the country… anyone with half a brain knows if a real terrorist wants into this country undetected, then they can walk acrosss the southern border with the other 50,000 per day illegal immagrants.

        The most obscene part is how ex-head of the TSA Chertoff is making million selling these fkn machines to the TSA

        http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/11/23/fear_pays_chertoff_n_787711.html …. or od a search on your own if you dont like that link

        All this groping has only served to humilate and train a weaking populous to obey. This is their way of saying they run us, they are in charge and they will do what they want when they want. fk the people.

        This is not even to mention the fact (that cigarettes are safe and dont cause cancer… and asbestos is a safe fire proof material…. and that black lung disease is a myth…. and plaster board from China is as safe as domestic wallboard…. and Pintos are very safe in rear collisions…. and cell phones held to your head are harmless) the X-ray / nude-o-scanners are safe and there will never be class action lawsuits brought by (TSA) workers who stood next to them 8 hours a day, for years, while being hit by raditation.

      3. CIA & FBI aren’t finished body scanning yet. The rest of the info they get from FaceNuts.

      4. Born in Texas. Lived elsewhere all my life, but Governor Perry, with all due respect, if you don’t push these bills into special session, YOU AIN’T GOT A HAIR ON YOUR BALLS NOWHERE!

        Now back to your regularly scheduled programming!

      5. Wouldn’t it be great of somebody could hack into the TSA system and every time an 85 yr old woman stood in the scanner it showed a picture of the playmate-of-the-month? Heck, old ladies would be lining up to get scanned even if they didn’t have a flight! For the pretty women we could use a cartoon picture of Minnie Mouse or something. For the really old men we could substitute a photo of Schwarzenegger in his prime. And for the young men…oh, how about a picture of Janet Reno?

      6. I would put the politicians children/grand children through and see how the politicians feel about that. Start at the top with Supreme Court BlowHoles.

      7. Department of Homeless Security

        Because little babies/kids/grandmas/nuns/ect…. hijacked three planes and flew them into the world trade center and the pentagon. Mr Smith we are going to need to pat you and your mentally handicapped son down. Mr Bin Al Zinjopalalabad have a nice flight!

      8. Just a little factoid: Texas (and every other state)only has TWO senators and far less than 151 House members.

        • The author means State senators and State representatives, of which it does indeed have the numbers reported.

        • Uhhhh, I think they are talking about STATE senators/reps.

        • This is a STATE law bill numb-nuts, try to keep up. Texas has 31 STATE Senators and 150 STATE Reps.

      9. Texas, you can fire a shot heard ’round the world with this!!!

        Can you imagine the pressure Gov. Perry is under? If he has ANY dirty little secrets, now is the time the organized crime group that we call the government will pull them out and make them public. I imagine he has been threatened with everything from blackmail to physical harm if he proceeds with this. It would take a very brave man to buck the system like this. I guess we’ll see if he really is “Fed Up.”

      10. Perry has a lot of skeletons, he will cave to the feds, he has to or he is dead like jfk, rjk, john lennon, malcolm x, lincoln and all others that do not bow to the feds.

      11. Over in and around Houston, you know which way Bubba is going to turn by which side of the vehicle that he hangs his shotgun out the window.

        Most Texans that I have ever known were pretty slow to anger. For sure you can piss a Texan off if you work hard enough at it, but the results are probably something that the average person wouldn’t want to be around either … not up close and personal and directed at you.

        The Federal Government might be wise NOT to piss the vast majority of Texans off.

      12. Perry’s a Builderberger, he’s not going to do anything.

        • If you are going to miss spell it, mispell it correctly
          Build-A-Burger… but if you want to spell it correctly
          it is Bilderberger 🙂


          • Welcome to Build-A-Burger. Would you like to try our special Triple Bacon Artery Clogger meal deal? That’ll be $9 at the second window…

      13. You have that right M&M, all the way up the real Mid West to the border.

      14. Hmm, DoJ says no-fly zone? That’s odd cause the airlines industry falls under the Dept of Commerce NOT DoJ. And DoJ just like DoC are all in the executive branch of gov’t.

        Another option is filing suit against the gropers and voyeurs. Doesn’t take an entire jury to win a tort case. The question then becomes one of just how many judges will risk setting aside the verdicts. We need to keep in mind that all branches of gov’t exist only so long as we the people give our assent. If ya wanna win big, bid like you got a pair.

        An old army buddy of mine is fond of saying, “What we need around here is a good old fashion rat-killing.” In effect, throw out the trash. Do any of you think you can convince me that our elected is the best we can come up with?

      15. It’s really too bad. Obama and his thugs want to play a game of chicken, let them. This would be the end of his presidency, and be the second shot heard round the world.

        Instead, we have Texans cowering in fear of Jimmy Carter Obama. Who would have ever thought!

      16. But I fly just to be groped, how will I get my grope on (without being arrested) without the TSA touching my junk.

        My friend actually make it as awkward as possible, he moans and ask for them to go left/right whatever he can to humiliate them. Then when they say something like, “Sir, I’m just doing my job”. He respond with “isn’t that to uphold the constitution of the United States of America? If so, why are you violating the 4th Amendment? For a paycheck? Then don’t call yourself American, call yourself a former American and carry on feeling me up”.

        He actually only does this on the return leg when it doesn’t matter how long he is delayed. I am sure he will be on a no-fly list soon enough.

        • Now that’s funny! I hope he doesn’t have his TSA female blow-up doll & three copies of the Constitution in his carry on. The markets just opened DOWN in the Euro. Is it too late to tour Greece. I knew you were going to reply to Spelling Nazi Okie!

          • I guess I’m just getting too predictable:)

      17. I sent the following to Rick Perry at his website portal:

        Dear Gov. Perry,
        I am writing to you to “request-with-extreme-prejudice” that you make certain that HB 41 (formerly HB 1937) and SB 29 make it to the Special Session for a vote. It is extremely important that this Anti-TSA groping bill makes it into law.
        There is no logical reason for minimum wage TSA thugs to get away with groping, sticking their hands inside people’s clothes, messing with theri genitalia, and even strip-searching people out in the open in the airport. There is no reason for this, or for those hazardous backscatter radiation naked body scanners. By the time we get to the gate, we’ve already been through multiple metal detectors and our carry-on bags x-rayed and searched. No legitimate police officer can do what they’ve been doing without a warrant or probable cause. The TSA is not legitimate law enforcement… they are not licensed or bonded, and most would fail a basic background check.
        It is important to pass HB 41 / SB 29 into law because it will lead the way in states’ rights issues of various sorts. The federal government has overstepped its boundaries far too many times and it is time to stand up for our rights, both as Texans and as Americans.

        By the way… I know you were at the Bilderberg meeting in Switzerland… yes we are paying attention. Do you realize there is something called the Logan Act which makes it a crime to collude in secret with foreign powers?

        If you really think you want to run for either Governor or President, believe me, you don’t want to screw up on this legislation. Make sure HB 41 / SB 29 gets passed, along with anything overturning Obamacare in Texas, and do what you really can to stop illegal immigration, secure our borders and keep illegals from accessing our welfare/medicare and other support systems intended to help Americans.

        • Very good,
          Thank you Suzanne for taking the time.

      18. We’ll know soon if Gov Perry has the guts to bring this up in the special session. I’m not gonna bet on it, but as a slightly interested okie I would like to see Texas lead the way on this. C’mon Texas! You’re like a big brother to us up here on the north side of the river, so even though we insult you, pick on you, and try to steal your girlfriend, we really do need you on this one. Think of us as the annoying little brother who subconsciously needs a good role model. Even if we won’t admit it! Now, go face down the bully on the playground for us.

      19. It’s GAME OVER folks turn in your guns and ammo and pick up your brand new NWO FASCIST Manifesto pamphlet!!! On how to be a GOOD ISRAELI JEW Debt slave!And while your at it Americans turn in your balls as well cause it’s obvious americans have none!

      20. the entire establishment needs to go down, just for collusion alone…for way too many years to count..every last one of them is guilty.

      21. He will bow to the Corp, watch and see

        if anything it should be a wake up call to those who dont believe..

      22. To The People of Texas and
        All Americans In The World —
        February 24, 1836

        Fellow citizens & compatriots —
        I am beseiged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna — I have sustained a continual Bombardment & cannonade for 24 hours & have not lost a man — The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken — I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, & our flag still waves proudly from the walls — I shall never surrender or retreat. Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism, & every thing dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch — The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily & will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days. If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country —

        Lt. Col. Comdt.

      23. If they impose a no-fly zone, we impose a free-fly zone. Announce that anyone who wants to land in Texas is free to do so.
        Then, we examine other illegal laws which rob Americans of their rights and we quietly make free zone for it too. Little by little, bit by bit, state by state, we secede by taking back a few rights at a time without fanfare, without battle. States can quietly say, “You make it illegal. We make it legal again.” Sooner or later, it’s our country again.

      24. Imposing a “No Fly” Zone over Texas is an Act Of War..

        are they asking for the start of another Civil War? this time over the government over stepping its bounds?

        or are all the wimpy politicians going to fold under like the cheap suits they are?..and if so, maybe its time “The people” step up, and show them how secure their jobs are.

      25. So our government will shoot down and kill innocent americans on planes now. Thats what no fly zone means. Welcome to the police state. Wait till check points are on the streets. Its here.

      26. http://www.silverbearcafe.com/private/war.html

        This is for the poster on the other thread who hasn’t voted in 20 years:
        I’m not voting in 2012…first time in a long time…it’s pointless and I stopped playing the game.
        The empire has chosen the next puppet.
        And it may be Perry with all his skeletons in the closet…if the present fraud’s history and fake life can maket it in, Perry is a shoe in.

      27. If (when) this passes and other states follow suite, watch for more false flags to dampen the momentum

      28. Read my new Book “Crazy for God”, it shows just how crazy the lunatic religious are for believing in a fairy tale of a fake sky fairy.

      29. I hope you used good ink and paper… I’ll just throw it over with the old phone books…you know to be used during (SHIF) for …(SH!T)paper. it is free right???

        I don’t own a Bible myself…but I do leave people to believe what they will.

        I take that back! I do own a stack of (Shooter’s Bibles) Oldest one is from 1976 and it was $7.95 It’s the first book my dad bought for me. Thanks DAD 🙂

        • I really hope they call their bluff

      30. What astounds me is the fact that anyone cares if there is a no fly zone. Let them put it in place. If we can’t leave then neither can they and also, none of them will be allowed in.The feds are running a bluff. They need Texas a hell of a lot more than Texas needs them. In fact, I would like to bet they’d never do anything more than piss and moan about it. I’m fed up with the bull shit coming out of Washington and I’m pretty sure a bunch of others are too. Let’s tell the feds to bring what they have and see if they have any balls. While they are making the state into a no fly zone, it might behoove them to remember that there are 3-4 Naval Air Station and several Air Force bases they will have to give up when they do. We can make it a no-fly in reverse if need be to keep the cocksuckers out of our state.

        • Hey… we in Texas have enough oil reserves. They’ve got the technology to get at the HUGE oil deposits under central Texas now (they go through two layers of granite to get to it). If they impose no-fly, we impose no-commerce and no-oil… and high tariffs.
          US Troops? Not any more… they’re on Texas land… “come and take it”.

      31. Perry is a puppet of the international bankers and Wall Street gangsters. He will do as he is told because he loves money and power more than liberty for people.

      32. Texans need to become inspired, and tell the likes of Anthony Weiner from New York and the TSA they cannot constantly have their minds in the gutter, while trying to engage in genital gropings galore. It is the criminal mindset that sinks constantly to the lowest common denominator. They should have the decency to quit and resign from their perverted acts of incessant molestation.

        I cannot imagine that Perry or any other self-respecting Texan would allow this kind of malignant ilk to dictate their terms to them. If these leaders want to defend the Constitution against Weiner and his compatriots, then they will have to send the proper message.

        By doing so, someone like Perry may be able to garner tremendous appreciation and respect, doing wonders for his reputation, from like-minded patriots all over the country! I think Perry would definitely understand the positive implications of this, having beaten the empty souls of the corrupt totalitarians & fascists from D.C. . . . otherwise risk being associated with the wrong agendas, bureaucracies, politician sociopaths, etc. Isn’t he Fed Up?

      33. Swarm Of 35 Hooligans Rob Las Vegas Convenience Store!

        LAS VEGAS – Caught on camera, a mob of young folks bombarded the Town Stop comfort shop on Sunset Street and Pecos Road and stole in merchandise. “It became a feeding frenzy,” said Town Cease operator Jon Athey. “They were in the retailer for a few minutes and 30 seconds… It is a quite frightening issue.” Athey says the crowd darted in and snatched several items from the store. “Beer to jerky to candy bars to soda, whatever hit their fancy… potato chips,” he said. Athey says this tactic is known as a “swarm”. After 42 decades in the comfort keep company, Athey says this crime stands out. “This is the biggest a single I’ve actually witnessed,” he explained. If you walk into a convenience shop, you anticipate every single transfer to be recorded on camera. Surveillance cameras in every single path, nonetheless, didn’t stop this crew. “Now, you happen to be seeing droves swarming in the front doors – correct right here – as quick as they can arrive in,” Athey mentioned as he watched the surveillance video clip. “You can see them milling all around by the beer doorways. Now, you might be going to see them commence deciding on products they’re putting in their coat pockets. They are placing it down their pants.” The crowd commenced strolling out without having to pay, only to return. “Here it is, two minutes into the deal. They are all coming back for seconds,” Athey stated. Seconds later, they grabbed more beer and the clerk’s cell telephone. They then rushed back again out the doorway. “We ended up blessed no one was harm,” Athey explained. Athey states the clerk followed his training. He hopes …

      34. I have more than 32 rounds and I have been swarmed by six two months ago. Bring it on. They were all black. It’s not a skin color thing. It’s a culture thing! Deal with it.

      35. I would rather have my dignity and integrity than give up my freedom for security and be treated like a criminal and molested, groped , radiated and have a nude photo taken of me all in the name of safety… No thanks… i’ve been assaulted before why would I want to go through the violation for no reason at all from perverts that I PAY FOR to fly??? Where is the logic in this? I do not agree to this mad hatter backwards mentality. Texas needs a law that protects its citizens If they want to threaten us… so be it… I doubt it will last… If you have to do things like this – do it to those suspected of a crime… but not to those who are not criminals nor have ever participated in terrorism..

      36. Weiner of New York has officially resigned. This is a victory for all who hate molestations and transgressions from the likes of him and the TSA.

        The situation is ripe for further victory . . .

        Yet Perry just talks the talk, and never walks the walk!

        Everyone needs to call his office, and let him know that if he truly stands for the Tenth Amendment in the way he preaches at New Orleans over the weekend, for example, then he better live up to his statements.

        He needs to allow the Special Session to vote out the TSA’s dirty, repugnant, pedophile shenanigans once and for all! He’s challenging you to let him know at his office # posted above at (512) 463-2000.

        Under the Tenth Amendment, Texas has the right to nullify an oppressive federal law, whether Weiner likes it or not!

        I want to know if Rick Perry is going to live up to the rhetoric, or if he is just another suit & shill for the thugs, gangsters, and charlatans in D.C. with their corrupt sorry ass faces of utter arrogance and gross negligence. Nasty Scumbags.

      37. Rick Perry is worse than Weiner. He’s a pussy ass scumbag just like him. He will never stand up to the Feds. He took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution. Instead, he takes it up the ass from the Fed, and then whines about it, writing cheap books about being “Fed Up.” Get the picture, folks, he’s a charlatan, and a mediocre one at that.

      38. TOTAL

        To sexual predators who are gay: The TSA wants your resume!

        Not Roman romp paid by the Pope For stolen joys with altar boys

        Let freely roam foraging finger Lusting for a crass caress
        On passengers’ privates gently linger Waiting not for assent “Yes”.

        Security-of-person swap for safer soaring in the sky:
