from infowars: The Insanity of Homeland Security enforced airline security measures reached a new high today as two American citizens were charged with violating the Patriot Act for "sexual play" on a Southwest Airlines flight from Los Angeles.
Just when you thought it was safe to get back on a plane, just when you thought it may be possible to fly without fear of hijacking by liquid explosive baby milk wielding psychopath Islamofascists bent on destroying 400 airliners all at once thus igniting atmospheric gasses and triggering mass armageddon all over the planet, you were wrong.
You were wrong because now we must face the threat of the "nuzzling" terrorists.
Carl Persing and Dawn Sewell, a couple in their early forties, were observed nuzzling or kissing each other on the neck, and allegedly engaging in more adult sexual acts. "During these actions, Sewell was observed smiling," reads the indictment filed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
OH NO, NOT "SMILING" AS WELL, HOW COULD THEY?
In all seriousness however, this may at first seem like an isolated incident, sadly it is not, it is the latest in an unending series of examples of ludicrous airport and airline incidents that indicate the extent to which freedom of movement is under attack. It is also the latest example in a long history of the use of the Patriot Act against lawful American citizens.
Persing and Sewell are facing up to twenty years in prison for violating legislation that, although unlawfully passed, is supposed to be for use against those who commit or intend to commit terrorist acts.
Today also saw a 65-year-old Australian man fined S$10,000 ($6,423), under the United Nations anti-terrorism regulations, by a Singapore court for uttering the word "bomb" on a flight to Indonesia.
He was lucky he wasn't gunned down like the incident in Miami where Rigoberto Alpizar was shot on board American Airlines Flight 924 for "saying he had a bomb".
Previous mind boggling airport and airline incidents include:
A Wisconsin man who wrote "Kip Hawley is an Idiot" on a plastic bag containing toiletries was detained in September.
An 83-year-old wheelchair bound breast cancer, broken hip from a fall and stroke victim was manhandled and treated to extra screening at at Denver International Airport, in April.
Harraj Mann was reported to the British airport police for listening to a Clash record in a taxi on the way to the airport. The weasel driver was so frightened by some of the lyrics that he took them as a rallying call for a terrorist attack.
- A man was arrested in Portland airport in December 2002 for becoming angry when security groped his pregnant wife and ordered her to strip in front of hundreds of other passengers.
- Passengers on a flight returning from Malaga, Spain complained about two Asian men who they thought were potential suicide hijackers. The evidence? They were Asian! To the astonishment of the students they were marched off the plane at gun point before it took off.
- On August 14th, a British Airways flight bound for New York was diverted back to Heathrow Airport because a mobile phone rang at the rear of the plane and its owner was not to be found.
In August of this year we saw the mother of all fake terror alerts used to beta test a system of total tyrannical control within airports where mothers carrying baby milk as well as gel bra wearers, lip gloss users, people who wear coats and children who carry dolls were treated as possible terrorists.
Several incidents have occurred where people who rely on medication have become ill or even fallen into comas because airport staff have refused to let them take medicines on board.
While a couple of weeks before a tabloid reporter had "planted a bomb" on a nuclear waste train by just walking onto it, the British and American public were being ordered around, background checked, screened and analyzed in any airport they entered.
Similarly, test runs where terrorists smuggle dummy nuclear bombs across the US border without being apprehended were successfully conducted by Glenn Spencer's American Border Patrol on three separate occasions. Airports and the general public, however, remain the focus of beefed up security measures.
Immediately after the very dubious plot details broke the British Government again attempted to ram though draconian detainee legislation, only to face a fierce backlash from the public who were sick and tired of being treated like mindless fools that believe anything they are told by their leaders.
Airline companies too have viscously attacked the government, this week it was revealed that BA's "terror alert" bill has hit 100 million pounds.
It is now clear that anything anyone does in an airport or on a plane, including talking and kissing, is being categorized as possible terrorism. This is an excuse to implement the first stage of an agenda to create a two tier caste system whereby only government authorized citizens will be able to travel and everyone will be subject to intense airport style harassment on city streets.
Such idiotic excuses are being used everyday to cram our lives with escalating security measures, biometric and body scans, lie detector tests, behavior analysis, facial analysis and spot teams to spy on passengers. We are being acclimatized to these things, first within airports. Technology and measures that you don't even see used in prisons or high security facilities are being passed off as completely normal in airports.
Every indication suggests that there are moves afoot to implement these measures and methods into everyday life. A year ago we were told that Federal air marshals were to expand their work beyond airplanes, launching counterterror surveillance at train stations and other mass transit facilities. So called "Visible Intermodal Protection and Response" teams — or VIPER teams, may soon be permanently implemented on everyday transport facilities.
With no real threat to counter such teams will busy themselves busting people selling tokens and herding people around like cattle in 'shock and awe' programs, whatever the hell that term is supposed to mean now, prodding them through transit scanners.
We are told that an attack on transit systems with in the US is inevitable. In Canada, record levels of funding are now being poured into transit security to develop new surveillance networks, including cameras; develop risk assessments and security plans, and hire staff. Of course this is necessary because despite the moves to totally crank up security on transit systems, Al-Qaeda has them as their main targets.
The airports are merely a beta test for the exact same measures to be rolled out in major cities, where regular checkpoint officials inspect internal passports and consumers are body scanned to enter a supermarket or any kind of public event as spy drones swoop overhead to catalogue movement and alert authorities to any suspicious body language (remember Poindexter's gait analysis?).
The majority of what I outlined is already being implemented at major transport and police hubs in the US and Britain. When the technology to automate these measures is more widely used, its cost will drop and in turn spread like wildfire outside of the major cities and into local communities - unless we scream bloody murder and stop it before it makes it out of the airport terminal and onto our street corners and we all end up being categorized as suspects along with the "nuzzling terrorists".
