Hundreds Rally at Texas State Capitol Building to Protest TSA Threat to Blockade Texas Airports

(NaturalNews) The revolution against government tyranny is underway in Texas, led by Alex Jones and hundreds of protestors who stormed the state capitol building today in protest over TSA tyranny. Late yesterday, the TSA threatened to turn Texas into a no-fly zone if it passed a law criminalizing inappropriate TSA pat-downs (i.e. sexual molestation by government thugs). This threat of economic terrorism against Texas resulted in an immediate and powerful backlash by members of the public across the entire political spectrum.

Dewhurst is Dirt

Check that, dirt is actually useful.

"The man who was instrumental in working with the federal government to sabotage a bill that would have made TSA grope downs a felony in the state of Texas was Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, a former CIA agent and establishment insider considered to be the wealthiest man in Texas politics."[AJ]

Hope this trend continues

It is rediculous to claim they'll shut down all the flights in and out.

This is a flex of their muscle as an example to all other states.

The airlines have no choice but to go along with it if they wish to keep their subsidies which allow them not to have to pay for any upkeep or security. It puts the cost onto tax payers as usual.

As Alex Jones pointed out.

An embargo is an ACT OF WAR. Read what the Constitution says defines TREASON.

If this thing starts, Mr. Murphy better be laying out his black suit.

Should be millions!

And on top of that the Airlines would raise a huge stink and drop the TSA like a bad habit if they cut off those flights.

I can't believe that Texas is being bullied by an unelected bureaucracy.

if I was Alex Jones

if I was Alex I would call for blockade of every airport until TSA is kicked out.
No bleeping take offs nobody flying -- total blockade of every airport in America.

Alex's influence isn't THAT big, even if it were possible,

but I might suggest that every traveler ought to carry a written copy of the Miranda warning so that they could serve every TSA agent notice that should they follow any policy or procedure that would violate any of their rights, that they should be prepared to be held personally liable for that violation to the fullest extent of the Law, with no protection of their agency to help them!

If enough passengers asserted the rights properly, then perhaps this reign of racketeers could end in peace.

In my humble opinion...

This is as good a place as any to make a stand...Texas cannot be threatened. Do the states have ANY POWERS at all ???

Discover Costa Rica

Not with state senators like Dan Patrick running the show.

Patrick blasted Debra Medina daily on his radio program last year. He is a HUGE piece of feces in my book..If you call his office tell that bastard I said so as they stopped taking my calls last year. His communist diatribe on Medina was more than my stomach could take. All oppressors of freedom are not fit for ANY ELECTED OFFICE IN THE UNITED STATES.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

That's the spirit

I don't think that's going to be enough to convince anyone....

It was a spontaneous event, called together within the hour

I was listening to Alex Jones show when he put out the appeal during the last hour of his show yesterday.

I'm sure many more would have joined in if they had had more notice.

FYI I am pretty sure such a

FYI I am pretty sure such a threat is criminal under several different interpretations of statues. Ironically, it can also be viewed as terroristic threatening. There is no indication that they used any normal democratic method to make this suggestion - it's only terroristic threatening.

Texas is considering the law because one of her beauty queens was groped by TSA. People need to be put in jail.

That this is coming when the patriot act is up for debate just illustrates how disgusting this is. Get on the phones and call.

DoJ throws down a terroristic threat if Texas wouldn't let them

"protect" Texas air travelers from unknown terrorists.

The Texas Senate was simply reacting to the real and present threat of economic terrorism that Big Sis and her cronies are known for.

The airline industry and tourism nation-wide are already suffering a decline as a result of their damaging and assaultive policies and procedures, besides the trauma they subject nearly ever person to who boards a plane in the entire US.

That said, I'm not excusing the Texas Senate in any way for their failure to call these federal goon's threat what it is, and refusing to act according to principle, but with "protection" like theirs, why worry about unknown enemies of the Republic?

Then a law about destabilizing

Then a law about destabilizing the sovereign State of Texas should be passed, and members of the TSA should be put in jail for a long long time for criminal activity.

This won't stop until members of the federal government are put in jail. At the beginning of the country, you could be executed for devaluing money of the mint. The founders knew that the worse criminals would always be in government, and would need the stiffest penalties.

Face it, we have a federal government that is rebelling against the constitution and the States.

So if I have this right?

Congressmen and senators from Texas would not be "allowed to fly to D.C?
The TSA has the authority to block these people from flying out of Texas?
I am thinking there are a few big oilmen in the state of Texas.
When and where does this bull sh^t stop?

Formerly rprevolutionist

Its a classic TSA brownshirt tactic

Its a classic TSA brownshirt tactic. The Congressmen and big Oilmen WERE upset over the threat, so they called the TX state house and FORCED them to back down.

"Now you let those fine folks rape an' molest, just's long as MY flight to Oklahoma City's not delayed."

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

Yup

The TSA has the "authority" to block flights according to current laws (which I'm sure that they justify under the interstate commerce clause).

What I don't get is how the TSA operates a protection racket and gets away with it. If they can't "guarantee safety", they're really not acting much different than when organized crime takes over local businesses.

Is there any way we could get the TSA to be brought upon RICO charges?

Stand strong, Texas!

Texas or another *state* may be able to do it...

I can think of a few other 3 letter agencies that could use the same 'treatment'......

Protection Racket - That's a great analogy for the TSA because that is exactly what it is, One big shakedown. Thanks.

Obama is owned by the Monsanto administration.

TSA is one tyrant, likewise the FEMA protection racquet is paid off to secure mono crop intensive industrial farming and the killing off of living things and creatures that compete, to secure the construction of a pipeline from Alberta to Mexico and to secure super coal mining of Montana/Wyoming.

Dallas is the hub of American Airlines.

They must fit into this equation somehow. don't know what their position is. Can't imagine the govt. saying to AA, sorry, no flights today.
