Sen. Schumer Proposes TSA Airport-style Security for Amtrak

Information released by the CIA and supposedly gathered from the compound where Osama bin Laden was said to have been killed by operatives last week, indicated that Al Qaeda plans to attack railways in the U.S.  This news prompted Democratic Senator Charles Schumer to propose new security measures for Amtrak stations.

The unquestioning corporate media immediately broadcast the information in a flurry of scare-mongering pundits and un-vetted government information.

Their work, which was to drum up new fears of terrorism, have culminated in Schumer introducing legislation to establish new “security checkpoints” at all Amtrak stations in America.

This, of course, would require even more tax dollars be given to Amtrak, which already receives heavy government subsidy to stay in business.  All in the name of “safety” and “security,” of course.

The first thing they want to create?  A “No Ride List” similar to (and based from) the TSA’s No Fly List – a list that is so rife with errors and lack of common sense that it keeps 4 years olds and old ladies from being able to get on a plane.  Even the late Senator Ted Kennedy ended up on the list and had to use all of his power as a U.S. Senator to get removed (something the rest of us can’t do).

It’s just more Hegelian Dialectic (problem-reaction-solution) in action, folks.  They create a problem, give a huge public reaction to make it appear to be more than it is, then offer a solution that abridges freedom and destroys liberty.

    There was never any credible evidence of a plan to use “terror babies” to murder anyone, but Gohmert propagates the fear.

    TSA detection failure is as high as 70%.…/tsa_failure_rate_may_approach_70_247786.html

    An undercover TSA agent testing the system was able to get a gun through the naked scanner five times in a row, without detection.

    TSA naked scanners use ionizing radiation.

    TSA scanners emit 10 times the level of ionizing radiation as reported by TSA.

    A hospital radiographer has blasted Manchester Airport’s controversial body scanner and claimed: “There’s no such thing as a safe x-ray.”

    All levels of radiation are confirmed to cause cancer.

    TSA has lied about the health risks, and they continue to use the machines on an unsuspecting public. How come? Follow the dollars.

    What TSA agents do while supposedly “securing” your flight.

    TSA is going to set up in grocery stores, malls, and other public places across the nation.

    TSA will now be at train stations.

    And at bus stations.

    The war on terror is a fraud.
