Video: TSA To Search Bags, Question Passengers On Houston Buses


How much more are the american people going to take of this attack on our civil liberties. This is likely to end badly..

Feds to watch for suspicious activity, pre-crime behavior

Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com
Tuesday, April 17, 2012

A new program in Houston will place undercover TSA agents and police officers on buses whose job it will be to perform bag searches, watch for “suspicious activity” and interrogate passengers in order to ‘curb crime and terrorism’.

Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee unveiled the program, labeled Bus Safe, during a press conference on Friday. According to a Metropolitan Transit Authority of Houston (METRO) press release, agencies involved in the scheme will, “ride buses, perform random bag checks, and conduct K-9 sweeps, as well as place uniformed and plainclothes officers at Transit Centers and rail platforms to detect, prevent and address latent criminal activity or behavior.”
“While local law enforcement agencies focus on overall safety measures noted above, representatives with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will also be on hand, lending their counter-terrorism expertise and support during the exercise,” states the press release.

“If you think you’re going to be a bad actor on buses, get ready. You are going to have a short-lived time frame,” Jackson Lee said during the press conference. The Congresswoman is a staunch advocate of the TSA, having recently chastised the passage of a new law that allows airports to evict TSA agents and replace them with private screeners by claiming it would lead to a new 9/11-style attack.

Here we go again. More snooping in our baggage and maybe groping too. Maybe later, they will expand to radiation hand wands. I guess as officials and politicians have stated, "The Constitution is outdated" only in their eyes not the citizens eyes. We are at the point of tyranny. What a disappointment, that our representatives nolonger represent it's constituents.

Five major Wall St. bankers

Five major Wall St. bankers gave Mitt Romney 13 times more than they gave to all the other candidates combined.
Mitt Romney $813,300
Obama $198,974
Ron Paul $ 13,104
Ron Paul is not for sale.If Obama appointed 27 former members of Wall St. to his cabinet and administration, how many will Mitt Romney appoint if he is elected in Nov? While Obama suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder Mitt Romney flip flops on platforms like a fish out of water. Wall St. is under the control of the Council on Foreign Relations and they like Romney. those who don't believe this just visit their site. Looks like Obama has been a good solider but the are looking for Mitt to continue to carry out their plans.Norah Webster, the Father of Education, said, "If we vote an immoral man into office we are a traitor to our country." I see Mitt Romney as the lesser of two evils, but still evil. We need to ask ourselves is either or both of these men immoral? Judge Andrew P. Napolitano,in his book. A NATION OF SHEEP pointed out some cold hard facts about the majority of U.S. citizens.

A couple months ago Congress

A couple months ago Congress reported that the TSA was not only a failure but it was a waste of $65 billion taxpayers dollars.

Lee is just another fascist.

Being fascist is very popular in America today among the self-appointed elite.

And then they wonder why so few

And then they wonder why so few people chose to ride public transit.

"Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job."

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.


here from the Government and I'm here to help. HA! TSA should go to hell. RP2012 Viva La Revolution!

9/11 was an inside job .....time to get some answers..RP 2012

What is sad is that that lady

What is sad is that that lady thinks she is helping or promoting a cause.... Ignorance?

"The economy's not a class you can master in college. To think otherwise is the pretense of knowledge."

They like to make it appear as ignorance,

However, it's nothing but pure satanic evil.

In Tennessee

In Tennessee they are already on our highways!

A Cop on a bus

or Cops on a plane, these actions violate no law, not even the principle of Liberty.

An armed representive of the State (against whom I have been deprived my unalienable right to defend myself) with one hand on my crotch and another in my backpack, this is nothing less than tyranny.

It's not a matter of degrees, you are free or you are not. Are you free? We are not gradually losing our freedoms as many would suggest, we are gradually waking up to the fact that our freedoms are already lost, stolen as we slept. Let's hope and pray we haven't slept too late.
A President Paul would surely cause a stir, we might even get a few of our freedoms back before... well, you know what they will do.

This is not a game folks, there is no consolation prize.

If you are truly awake, you will be fully prepared.

too many sheep

Unfortunately too many Americans will just keep accepting the slow loss of their rights and dignity. I was appalled to read the comments by Americans justifying invasive patdowns in this article in the Daily Mail. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2131172/Bar-Ref... Like 'Sarah the nurse' from Iowa wrote, "They are doing their job. I prefer excellent security over a woman sitting next to me with explosives in her underwear." With these kinds of non-critical, ignorant beliefs, it will only get worse.

Be the Goat

that leads these sheep into the pastures of freedom! Lord knows many of us have tried. Keep living liberty and influence the people around you, that's all we can really do, IMHO.

Enjoy life and all wonders within. Wars on Drugs before declaration. Poor but freedom was near. Comedies of the man who used to toss joints to the crowd like it was legal. Let's play Paperball for Ron Paul: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydp2qMyVkbo

How ironic, Rosa Parks was considered "a bad actor" in her day

And civil rights became more clearly understood BECAUSE of Mrs. Parks' conscientious resistance against the clearly unjust laws that legislators, like Sheila Jackson Lee, passed in Parks' day, against those the corrupt legislators wanted to oppress.

Today, anyone, of any race, may find themselves treated as bad or worse than Rosa Parks, simply by wanting to travel between home or work by any means that government elite like S.J. Lee deems worthy of harassment, or worse; for our safety, of course!

Just Caught This On Ron Paul Forum :

Pro-taxation vandal deface signs at Ron Paul 2012 Louisiana campaign headquarter

by Angel Clark

A proposed increase on property taxes to fund a flailing public transportation system in the state capital of Baton Rouge has been met with considerable opposition from local conservatives, including many Ron Paul supporters. The so-called ‘CATS Tax’ is scheduled to be voted on Saturday, April 21st.

Local tax freedom activists placed a sign in front of the Ron Paul Louisiana Headquarters at 7047 Jefferson Street, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with the blessing of Pete Chamberlain, Louisiana State Director, and Charlie Davis, Louisiana State Chairman.

On the evening of April 16th, criminals vandalized the sign with spray paint, effectively censoring the anti-taxation message, and damaging the private property of both the Ron Paul campaign and the local activists.


Sorry, I know this is wrong place to post, but....

I have a feeling the era of wide brim hats, sunglasses...

...and trench coats will soon be back upon us.

Houston gave up its 4th amendment rights a long time ago.

Sheila Jackson Lee is merely jumping on the band wagon.

There is no getting rid of her.
She represents a gerrymandered district so that the country only has to deal with this one nut instead of two half-nuts.

Trust me. I live in it that district and we have tried again and again to no avail.

"I sleep well." Ron Paul

False Candidate

Find out the issues that her constituents like about her and then run a candidate that espouses the same ideals under the democratic ticket.


So Sad Igmund...

When the people suffer enough, maybe, just maybe, they'll realize Sheila Jackson Lee is not her friend..and vote her stinking fascist a#s out!

That's only part of the final solution

We need a federal Bicycle Path Safety initiative.

I know this old doctor rides around like crazy, saying we don't need this and we don't need that.

Let's protect ourselves from all the old guys riding around on bicycles.

I want to feel safe again!

another good post emalvini

Thanks Johnny!

We need to Wake Up America...If Not Us...WHO?

A perfectly reasonable Idea.

This is an example of a problem: Bus Behavior and crimes being committed against city residents.

Solution: City Government Hires Employee for "protection" to keep bus travelers safe in case of a crime being committed.

In steps the federal Government: We want the power to search anything at anytime without probable cause and we want the data of what you find to be given to us instantly and let us decide if we should handle it or it should be left to your silly city officials.

Keep it Local, Keep it safe..

Sounds like you

have seen Thrive... I also agree with you.

Jefferson Warned Us About Tyranny..It Won't Stop Until We Say


Please America, For Gods Sakes, For Christ Sake.....WAKE UP!!

Call Your Useless Congress People in the AM and let them know we are not going to take this...

We will demonstrate and vote them out...

This is our country and we decide who represents us...not them!

I can't stand this! How come these people don't fear us? They should be trembling in their boots!

Yes they do

Yes they do that is why they have the Patriot act and the NDAA the rotten tassburds And that is why I support the REVOLUTION and the outing of the TRASH !!!!!!

How much longer...

...until they go house to house to conduct searches.

For our safety. That phrase makes me want to puke in my mouth.


I warned over a year ago on another forum

that they'd expand this and got laughed at, told I was crazy and that this was for planes only because of 9/11.

I hate the sheep.
