Man Proves TSA Policies Are Unconstitutional - Passes TSA Checkpoint Unmolested


The rest of the videos are available at Matt's blog: No Blasters


Via Prison Planet

Blogger Matt Kernan was able to bypass both the naked body scanner and invasive TSA pat down procedures during his return to the United States this past weekend, proving that both measures are completely unconstitutional and creating a precedent for a total shake-up of airport security.

I'm very impressed

At your calm concise arguing with both TSA and Local cops. Thank you for fighting for our rights!

Shall we all start our own blogs?

this deserves to stay front page!

IMHO, what we need to do is

IMHO, what we need to do is "opt out " the radiation and naked scanners, get a "doctors note" if you have to showing it is harmful to your health.
Then, go for your groping. Your TSA agent will inform you of what they intend to grope, and you ask, what happens if you do not consent? And they say that they can sue you for 11K if you do not submit and then you get the goons name and inform them that what they are about to do is " sexual assault" and that you will submit to it only because of "the intimidation" of the 11k penalty and that you will promptly file a civil lawsuit against the TSA agent, and a law suit against the TSA for intimidation to prevent you from excercing your "right to travel" which has been determined as a right by SCOTUS decision.

This occurred to me too

It would be hard to believably justify this approach for everyone. I would think letters would have to be written on a case-by-case basis. PTSD patients would be great candidates for grope down excuse requests.

Not any more. Now you will be labeled a domestic

extremist and dealt with accordingly if you opt out of any procedure.



US vs Guest
United States v. Guest 383 U.S. 745 (1966) is a United States Supreme Court opinion, authored by Justice Potter Stewart, in which the court extended the protection of the 14th Amendment to citizens who suffer rights deprivations at the hands of private conspiracies, where there is minimal state participation in the conspiracy. The Court also held that there is Constitutional right to travel from state to state

He should never

have referred to himself as a US CITIZEN.


A Citizen with a passport in international jurisdiction

has no distinction between 14th amendment or by virtue of being in the original class.

In the context he was in, it was perfectly acceptable to make the claim. He is not claiming 14th citizenship by doing so.

You only need to worry about this when dealing with domestic issues.

Some please explain...

how this constitutes "PROOF" that the TSA Policies are Unconstitutional. Now, just for the sake of LOGIC, I feel that they are unconstitutional (whether that matters to them or even most of America is another discussion.)

I've read the posts, listened to the audio, and read the blog. Where is the "proof" please?

"Government is the entertainment division of the military-industrial complex". - Frank Zappa

Amendment 4 - Search and

Amendment 4 - Search and Seizure. Ratified 12/15/1791.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

The fourth amendment details the situations in which we can be searched and our property seized. In all other cases we have the RIGHT (not priviledge) to be secure in our persons (don't touch my genitals), houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures. They must have probable cause to search us and then they may only do so if they have previously obtained a warrant from a judge. The TSA does NOT have probable cause that every person flying on every airline to and from the US is a criminal. So their searches are without probable cause because the person is picked at random, unreasonable because they have no probable cause and because they take nude photos and touch you in a way that qualifies as sexual assault, and warrantless and so unconstitutional.

I get what you're saying

Him getting through doesn't help people trying to get on planes. It only proves he can't be given the run-arounds to enter his own country even if a TSA checkpoint is in his way.

The debate about getting past TSA's checkpoints to get on a plane is unaffected.

Defend Liberty!

You are missing the forest for the trees

The man was already deplaned coming from Paris.

He was not going on another plane, so why did TSA have to search him after he cleared Customs, whose job it is to do that?

Also, TSA was being evasive about detaining him, even though that's what they were doing WITHOUT PROBABLE CAUSE.
Without any evidence of wrongdoing. Remember, he was pulled out at RANDOM. This is the kind of crap witch doctors and the Salem citizens did, and we have laws to prevent such arbitrary detention.

So that's the violation of the Constitution, get it?
Goes waaaaay back to the Magna Carta. Better figure it out so, so you'll be ready for the Black Marias when they pull up front of your house in the middle of the night.

See my reply below. I don't think TSA or the police gave a rats

behind about their actions being unconstitutional.

All they care about is what their orders are.

Not getting on a connecting flight meant the TSA effectively didn't have orders to screen him at all.

THAT is why they let him go.

If he would have had a connecting flight, there is no way in hell the result would have been the same. He would not have been allowed to board that plane.


Is this the new "Gulf Oil Spill" while they crash the dollar and introduce a global currency? Something like that? Or start potential WW III by attacking Iran, China, or N.Korea? They sure have everyone's attention focused in one direction. It's like a commanod raid with a bomb at the opposite end of the perimeter from where you want to invade.

Don't know why...but your post made me think of that.

Here's a letter to the editor from the Austin Statesman 11/23/10

I began a personal boycott of the airlines when the government started violating our civil liberties with intrusive and unwarranted searches at airports. I was a prison guard for a short time, and we searched convicted felons the way the Transportation Security Agency is searching traveling Americans. How is anyone safer by being molested? Is being groped/assaulted by government flunkies going to make anyone more thankful? Are the TSA agents going to dress up as Santa Claus and elves when they grope passengers at Christmas, to get everyone in the holiday mood?

How dare we still call ourselves Americans when we allow our government to treat us, and our children, like convicted criminals. What we are most guilty of is allowing the Constitution to be destroyed without a fight.

Right before the pat down I would wink at the TSA agent.

Then when they start to pat me, start to breath hard then begin to moan.

Now, if everyone did this the insanity would stop.

A plane is going to blow-up

A plane is going to blow-up and then they are going to blame everyone that is complaining.

Then what?

I thought about this as well.

I thought about this as well. If by some chance a plane is attacked anytime soon, all the talking head buzz will be about 'those nut bags' who wanted to stop the government and the TSA from 'keeping us safe'.

Except that if it happens before they stop the procedures,

that proves the TSA is ineffective.

Yes, well.....

That is not how these patterns usually play out. When government fails, the claim (from the Governing authorities and their media shills) is that the failures were due to government not having enough power and authority. And typically, the sheeple fall for it.

I agree that such a thing would prove how ineffective their procedures are, but that will not necessarily mean relaxing their power or ending Liberty violating procedures. In our present political climate, it is more likely to exacerbate the problem, meaning more erosion to our Liberty.

This is great

what if everyone opted out of the opt-out? I just happened to be in the at&t store today at mt local mall, guess what story made its way to the screens of all the smart phones?

Billion dollar campaign, trillion dollar bailout, can you tell me what's the definition of a sellout?

Throughout this ordeal I didn't sense that either the TSA or

police were interested or even entertaining any notion of what the Constitution allows or does not allow.

The police repeatedly bring the issue back to "this is my job, this is what I have to do. Anything else, is out of my hands."

The TSA does the same thing. The TSA agent even admits he can't allow a less invasive scan because "we're passed that point." In other words, he can't think for himself. He can't break protocol. He has to proceed with having this guy arrested for refusing to be molested or radiated.

I suspect that the only reason this guy was let go was because he did not have a connecting flight.

Regardless of any Constitutional issues, they probably realized without a connecting flight, they had no mandate to screen him, much less detain him for refusal.

If Cincinnati was not his final destination by air, then I doubt he would have been allowed on a plane without either method of assault being carried out.

This does beg the question though, say you did have a connecting flight, but because of this chose to seek other transportation, like a rental car, train, bus, a friend, etc. to get home. Would you still eventually be let go?

know your rights

now if we could get everyone to stop paying these pigs/traitors via irs we might stand a chance. never file with the irs period.

i sure as hell have !

I agree with "Had enough yet" - END THE IRS.

We FUND these atrocities on our liberties through the rotted IRS.

We also fund the wars and flawed foreign policies which get us terrorized in the first place.







ONLY THEN will we be free citizens again.

Hats Off to Matt Kernan

If everybody did this, our liberties would be restored.

And, no, our security would not be compromised. You are more likely to be stuck by lightning twice than to be killed by a "terrorist".

And, no, my opinion would not change if tomorrow a plane blew up. You would still be more likely to be struck by lightning.

Americans have gone from being the most courageous people to being a bunch of sheep.

Thanks again, Matt Kernan!

Wait. So, this guy is just

Wait. So, this guy is just trying to leave the airport to go home? He is in his home airport and they are preventing him from leaving? Is that right?

WTF - Over?

"The United States can pay any debt it has because we can always print money to do that." — Alan Greenspan

good questions..

So he's not getting on a plane...he's just getting off the plane in America from another country?

Sound like it to me. Not quite the same as doing this process and then getting on a plane to fly from california to arizona is it.

And yet the "Underwear Bomber" had no paper work , only a...

man in a suit escorting him that said "they" do this all the time (as they passed by the screenings). Hmm! Very interesting indeed.
One thing that was never addressed during this entire time of the vid by the intelligent police or tsa people. What gave them reasonable cause or suspicion that this man was a terrorist or a threat as a possible terrorist? Is not the screenings and pat downs designed to detect possible terrorist?
The idea that a citizen with I.D and a passport, both authorized by different levels of government are not sufficient for passing is completely unacceptable.
We need to nip this in the bud.
I do tip my hat to the young man and his professional demeanor. Great Job!
What a waste of our money and time. I wonder about the backgrounds of individuals working for the tsa and police. That is an entirely different issue to be discussed.

"You watch" WTF

"TSA are just trying to earn a living and keep everyone safe" wtf ever dude, the nazis has the same excuse, just following orders, just doing their job. is personable accountability even relevant anymore?
