Tell Congress: End DHS Police State Measures

The Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration are targeting innocent American citizens and destroying our freedom!

Vice President Joe Biden describes Conservatives as "acting like terrorists," and clearly the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agrees, because their recently released terrorist-watch video "See Something, Say Something" has revealed a new terror threat: Americans!

The 10-minute video is filled with scenarios in which Americans are the real terror threats, and then advises Americans to not report on the suspicious activities of foreigners and those who speak a foreign language, but rather, to report the odd behaviors of American citizens.

The DHS video also displays newspaper clippings of Americans who have committed acts of terror, such as Ted Kaczynski the Unabomber, and Timothy McVey, one of the men involved in the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Yet, the video fails to show pictures of the 19 9/11 hijackers, or members of al-Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbollah, or members of other foreign terrorist organizations.

Is this simply a methodical effort by the DHS to be politically correct? Many say "no," because the DHS has gone out of its way to cast a shadow on middle-America by creating scenarios in which every suspected terrorist is an American citizen.

Unfortunately, these profiling tactics aren't new: according to documents written by the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) in 2009, if you display the Gadsden flag, or consider yourself to be Libertarian or a supporter of the liberty movement, then you just might be the biggest threat to our national security.

This is a prime example of an imposing police-state, where the government tasks citizens with the job of spying on their neighbors, instead of using the government's resources to protect patriotic Americans from the real terror threats.

TSA shakedown

Young children and grandmothers also seem to be on the Transportation and Security Administration's (TSA) radar as suspected terrorists.

A Tennessee woman was arrested by police at the Nashville International Airport for refusing to go through the TSA's airport screening machine, and for refusing to allow her daughter to be patted-down by a TSA agent.

According to a police report, the mother told TSA agents that she didn't want her daughter to be "touched inappropriately" or have her "crotch grabbed." And since she refused to allow the screening, she was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct.

The mother was also prevented from taking a video of the incident on her mobile phone.

How much further will you allow the government to push you around before you stand up and tell every member of Congress to protect your Fourth Amendment rights?

Sign the petition and send letters to your lawmakers and demand they END the police-state measures -- even dismantle the DHS and TSA and let the free market take care of those security needs, rather than the ever-growing federal government!

Janet Napolitano (DHS) backed by Obama has stated that anyone who disagrees with a Communist regiem, the United Nations, Globalism ext. is considered a right wing extremist and possible terrorist?...Communism is an enemy of America and should NOT WITHOUT QUESTION be allowed in any part of American Government. Janet Napolitano along with Obama is pushing hard towards treason...Why does Congress allow this ....Americans will not...

In his decision of July 15, 2011 Judge Douglas Ginsburg of the DC Circuit Court validated the use of "naked" scans because of their perceived efficacy in preventing any terrorist incidents on airplanes to date. He also said that passengers could opt for a personal patdown if they objected to the scans. This judge apparently values expediency over personal freedom guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution since he didn't address the issue of the unconstitutionality of such warrantless searches. If our government continues to permit the violation of such a fundamental principle of liberty, there can only be one conclusion: the terrorists have won!

When did "law enforcement" cease to need a warrant for "enhanced" searches? They should have to show probable cause and get a warrant in order to conduct that kind of search on a U.S. Citizen.

If this was a "real law enforcement" agency, these measures would likely be construed as a violation of ones civil rights. This clearly is NOT making anyone more secure with the possible exception of job security for the DHS and TSA. If only their argument was as strong as their abuse of power. Enough is enough!

My God, I can't believe what is happening in this country. I understand wanting to prevent terrorists from boarding a plane, but this is going too far. Please do something to stop these extreme violations. What about using explosive sniffing dogs? Anything to prevent such abuse of citizens. LIttle children and 90-yr old wheelchair passengers !! I know TSA is just trying to do what they have been told their jobs require- but this is insane.

The TSA needs to stop feeling up Nuns, patting down elderly women with Diapers on in wheel chairs, and fondling little girls. Or start doing the say thing to all Muslims, Male, or Female. Why should they be allowed to claim immunity because of their beliefs! Everyone else in America has their own beliefs as well...
