The crimes of the TSA

You may have seen last week when Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., was detained by the Transportation Security Administration for refusing to allow a pat down when the screener gave a false positive detection.
The TSA was looking for another excuse to put their hands on another American citizen in violation of our Fourth Amendment right, which 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 …”
The only thing their scanners did detect was that Rand Paul had spine enough to resist their unlawful policy. Rand correctly made the distinction between rights and privileges.
Benjamin Franklin was right when he stated: “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney immediately responded: “When an irregularity is found in a TSA screening process, it must be resolved prior to allowing a passenger, any passenger, to proceed to the secure area of the airport.”
What is to be done when the “irregularity” is found within the TSA? And when that irregularity is found, then it becomes the responsibility of the American people to correct the crimes of the TSA when agency officials will not correct themselves.
Take note: This is the same criminal administration that is at war with governors of states who are attempting to prevent illegals from entering this country, while allowing the TSA to violate American citizens. This government has labeled every single American citizen as a suspect in terrorism.
Again, the TSA has no lawful authority to put their hands on you. Why? Because it stands contrary to the United States Constitution.
The Supreme Court declared in 1803, “All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.”
I am all for safety and security, but not at the cost of giving up our rights that have been purchased at such a high price. The scanners are sufficient. Furthermore, airports are not required to host the TSA, which, by the way, have not successfully caught a single terrorist.
During an interview with Sen. Paul, Megyn Kelly with Fox News stated that refusing a pat down puts up red flags in the minds of TSA agents.
However, Megyn had it backwards. Let me put into perspective what the red flags truly are: namely the crimes of TSA employees toward those who go through security lines at the airport – employees who have been charged, convicted and jailed.
This video portrays these TSA red flags, which they don’t want you to know:
