More States Accept TSA VIPR Teams at Transportation Hubs


The effort by the Department of Homeland Security and the TSA to expand their operations from airports to state roads and beyond is being accepted by state and local governments around the country, according to AllGov.com, a website covering government activity.

AllGov.com reports today that other “states are expected to follow and accept VIPR (Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response) at their transportation hubs” following recent operations in Tennessee.

The unconstitutional operations were not in response “to any particular threat,” but rather designed to act as “a visible deterrence and detection security presence across Tennessee.”

In other words, the operation was an effort to acclimate Tennesseans to militarized TSA units at checkpoints around the state.

They don't even give a bad reason why this control is needed.

Incrementalism? Boiling frogs slowly. This is not good.

Anytime TSA wants to do anything to you, they have to team up with actual police.

Since the TSA has no police authority, why does anyone even stop to talk with them?

So where do our local police departments stand?

Will your local government sell your tax purchased police services for Federal funds?

I saw some TSA agents at LA Union Station

yesterday for the first time. Joy.

Wretched news every day!

And we're supposed to really think for ONE SECOND that they have our best interests in mind when they name their operations VIPER, and put RAPESCANS on us, and borrow Nazi terminology like HOMELAND or Commie words like CZAR?

And how dare we not trust that. How dumb do you have to be to make the "cut" and thrive in this intellectual wasteland of a country?

soviet style

who would have predicted?

gradual boiling of the frog - boiling might speed up after an attack on Iran...
