This Panicked Administration Has Turned Dictatorial, Not Democratic

Published by at 7:53 am under All General Discussions,Bin Laden/GWOT

The question at the core of the TSA security mess is what individual rights are We The People willing to give up for security. Are we willing to be groped and scanned, or should we use sophisticated profiling to detect evil human beings bent on mass murder?

We face blood thirsty enemy in the form of Islamic Fascism – a deadly combination of religious fervor and soulless cruelty that makes the human holocausts of Nazi Germany and Communist Russia look pale in comparison. The future vision of Islamic Fascism is best seen in Iran and the Taliban, with al Qaeda being their version of the Nazi SS, East German Stasi or the Soviet Union’s KGB. The atrocities al Qaeda (and Iran) were willing to commit on Arab Muslims in Iraq indicates these animals will do anything to gain control of humanity’s destiny.

The Obama administration’s original plan to not speak of Islamo Fascism and their Terrorist-based war on the West was as naive as it was stupid. In return for Obama’s efforts to pretend Islam does not have a deadly cancer growing inside of it, we experienced more near-successful attacks on our country in 2 short years than in all the years since 9-11. Team Obama dialed back what would trigger a national security (FISA) investigation, and where it would be triggered (ignoring Yemen for a time) and we ended up with the Ft Hood Massacre and the near misses of the Christmas Day Bomber and Times Square Bomber.

The reason the country is being sexually assaulted and its personal privacy invaded on a massive scale – without a hint of probable cause – is because this administration woke up and realized Islamo Fascism is real and very deadly. And now they are in full panic mode and claiming the only way to protect us is to violate all of us equally.

To this I say ‘bullshit’! First off, our constitutional rights do not disappear when we go certain places in this country. You can no more search me without cause in an airline terminal than on the street. We cannot have the government just decide when the constitution applies when they feel like it – or else we don’t have a constitution.

Secondly, when the TSA instituted screening of baggage after 9-11, the nation went along VOLUNTARILY! We allowed this of our own free will as a prudent step to stop terrorists from bringing a weapon on board a plane and taking it over and make it a weapon. This was not an act of giving up our rights, it was an act of common cause.

And it has gotten way out of control (e.g., nail clippers are not weapons). We can protect ourselves now, even from box cutters. We know that seat cushions double as flotation devices and shields capable of dealing with box cutters and small knifes. We are not sheep who cannot deal with 5 lightly armed terrorists. This has been proven many times, just review the Shoe Bomber and Christmas Day Bomber – not to mention flight 92 on 9-11.

But this latest TSA intrusion is too much and illegal. We don’t need mass molestation and invasion of privacy to stop terrorism. We need profiling.

And before another liberal moron cries ‘racism’ I must note that looking at race or clothing is not profiling – it is another version of liberal ignorance. Profiling for terrorists has to look well beyond race, nationality and garb. It has to look at human behavior. It has to transcend the obvious, since the obvious can be faked or a facade or a home grown terrorist. Some of our most notorious enemies in AQAP are Americans turned traitor. The Times Square bomber was American, as was the Ft Hood murderer.

So don’t believe the cries of racism that come with the phrase ‘profiling’ – that is just another liberal exposing his lack of intellect.

We are not going to export the invasion of privacy and sexual assault across this land because this administration is filled with incompetent boobs. I have never been for impeachment, but if there ever was a cause this would be it:

The next step in tightened security could be on U.S. public transportation, trains and boats.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says terrorists will continue to look for U.S. vulnerabilities, making tighter security standards necessary.

“[Terrorists] are going to continue to probe the system and try to find a way through,” Napolitano said in an interview that aired Monday night on “Charlie Rose.”

“I think the tighter we get on aviation, we have to also be thinking now about going on to mass transit or to trains or maritime. So, what do we need to be doing to strengthen our protections there?”

These pat downs and body scanners are not protecting us – it is a lame act. The previous screening for guns and weapons that might allow 5 people to overrun 100 other airline passengers was a reasonable precaution. But you cannot stop shaped charges of plastic or powder by these methods. This is why defensive measures in a war on terror are only temporary. It is why terrorists must be located and destroyed in their hiding holes. It is why terrorism is only successfully fought on the offensive, not by restricting the freedoms of potential victims.

This group in the White House has violated our constitution because it is afraid. Not afraid for us as much as afraid it will be blamed if a terrorist gets through. After years of fighting Islamo Fascism, and losing many brave heroes, the left has yet to figure out we have always been willing to pay the price to DEFEND our freedoms. We don’t cower.

And we sure as hell don’t feel up children or take revealing pictures of them to protect our freedoms. Either end this madness now and get back to the war on terror or face the consequences. I for one have had it. We should be looking for terrorists via profiling, listening in on all their calls and communications to discover their support network, seeking them out and capturing them, and then interrogating them until they lead us to their evil allies. We need to be hunting terrorists, not assaulting innocent civilians.

Violating our constitutional rights on a massive scale is a high crime folks. Plain and simple.

Update: Look who the government has decided can keep their constitutional rights.

Update: The tide of growing anger is building. Of Democrats think the 2008 election was bad because of the economy, just wait and see what months of assaulting Americans does to their party.

  1. Attitudes trickle down from the top.

    In several of my posts, I’ve quoted from blogger Robin of Berkeley on the American Thinker blog site: A Shrink Asks: What’s Wrong with Obama?
    (The words are hers, the emphasis is mine)
    If my assessment is accurate, what does this mean?

    It means that liberals need to wake up and spit out the Kool-Aid…and that conservatives should put aside differences, band together, and elect as many Republicans as possible.

    “Because Obama will not change. He will not learn from his mistakes. He will not grow and mature from on-the-job experience. In fact, over time, Obama will likely become a more ferocious version of who he is today.

    You can certainly see that in his defenses of the TSA’s actions. The heads or that agency were appointed by him, or by appointees of him.

    I can’t see anything really changing here until those people are dragged, kicking and screaming, from their positions.

    Until then they will continue to treat us with the absolute contempt they have already displayed so far.

    I am willing to vote Obama out of office, just name the time…

    Next time we need elect and American as president, these Kenyans and their wookies aren’t working out too well.

    What amazes me is that after all of this outrage, there *still* is no attempt to dial this back, to respond to the anger, or to deal with the criticisms in any meaningful way! That is what *any* halfway decent politician who cared about nothing more than his own long term survival would do, and yet these idiots can’t even do that!

    The attitude from the administration is simply “oh, you’ll get used to it, so Shut Up.” They don’t even see the threat to themselves from this kind of heavyhandedness!

    Just like Pelosi and the Congressional dems this last election, this administration now most certainly appears to be a bunch that has decided to go down with their ideological ship, and who will never shift directions no matter *how* outrageous or unpopular their policies become – astounding!

    This is going to be a hell of a 2 years – but after that, it may be a very, very long time before Democrats get close to power again – a decade, maybe 2.

    Honestly I think Obama and his crew believed that President Bush, the man, was evil. That the things he did were because of his personal evilness, rather then to protect a kind and giving nation from evil people. So the Obama’s proceeded to demonize, dismantle, and make us look small, and willing to love anybody regardless of how revolting and demonic they were/are. Now Obama is scared of what will happen to his personal reputation if we get hit again. So what’s a man to do if wire taps interfere with privacy, killing people where they live is terrible, Gitmo must be shut down, we want to be seen as equal justice, can’t call a spade a spade, lets build a Mosque at grown zero, WE the President, search peoples undies. Yep, Obama is a really smart guy!

  5. WWS says:

    You’re exactly right, Kathie. There’s an old truism: Conservatives believe that Liberals are stupid, but Liberals devoutly believe that all Conservatives are Evil. (proving that Liberals really are stupid, btw)

    And there’s a corollary to believing that You represent the Forces of Good and all of your critics are Evil that Liberals always fall for: If You represent Good, then everything you do is Good, no matter what it looks like to ordinary mortals. And since your enemies are Evil everything they do, including criticize you, is Evil Incarnate. Therefore ignoring anything your Enemies say is an absolute Moral Imperative.

    This is how Liberals think – and yes, I know some up close and personal. Liberalism is Religion for people who think they are far too sophisticated and intelligent to ever fall for religion. That is why it can never be understood or discussed in logical terms; it only makes sense when you see it as a fanatical, self-agrandizing religion. (see why they have so much empathy for the Muslims?)

    WWS, I watched an interview with the wonderful, moral, idealist Jeffrey Toobin who represents the highest aspirations of the “thinking” America and the American people. He was saying why torture and George Bush should be prosecuted. America is too good to stoop so low. I’m thinking, I don’t believe in killing anything. Once I ran over a squirrel and was sick for a week. But then I think if someone was trying to kill one of my daughters I would kill them in a nanosecond, step over their body and never give them another thought. So I say to myself, if you can put yourself in someone’s shoes, it is easy to see why Bush did what he did to 3 people whom he believed had information that would save American’s lives. After all we were his family for 8 years. The progressives always have a point in a theoretical world. Unfortunately, when that world meets reality it seems that progressives just can’t go there nor would they ever stoop so low as to concede that an evil conservative might have a point. Would a progressive really sacrifice Americans for an ideal?

    I think it is more than panic.
    It is an attempt to make us OBEY the government.
    Remember, Obama doesn’t like the constitution.
    He said it is a collection of things the government can NOT do (to you), as opposed to what he would like to see-what the government CAN DO (TO YOU)…
    Besides, he doesn’t like us, Americans, and he thinks we must pay for our past crimes and mistakes.
    So, the Obama admin. and the guy himself, is much more evil than people realize.

    The fact that many government officials will be spared these intrusive scans and/or pat downs will be the last straw for many people who were willing to otherwise go along. It makes it clear even to the most sympathetic observer that these measures — which I strongly believe represent unreasonable searches and/or seizures in the absence of specific probable cause with respect to each individual scanned or searched — are not about security, but about control.
