TSA could blur images, but they refuse.

As I have said all along, the TSA could be using full-body scanning technology that does not show a pornographic image of passengers passing through. In fact, they were informed of this technology in 2006, yet did nothing to implement it.
A cheap and simple fix in the computer software of new airport scanners could silence the uproar from travelers who object to the so-called virtual strip search, according to a scientist who helped develop the program at one of the federal government's most prestigious institutes.

The researcher, associated with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California, said he was rebuffed when he offered the concept to Department of Homeland Security officials four years ago.

The fix would distort the images captured on full-body scanners so they look like reflections in a fun-house mirror, but any potentially dangerous objects would be clearly revealed, said Willard "Bill" Wattenburg, a former nuclear weapons designer at the Livermore lab. The scanners normally produce real-time outlines of the naked human body, and the Transportation Security Administration has been embroiled in controversy since installation of the new scanners began last month.

"Why not just distort the image into something grotesque so that there isn't anything titillating or exciting about it?" Wattenburg said.
A TSA spokesman goes on to say, he doesn't know "anything about it, that was another Administration." That's pathetic. This Administration is trampling our rights and stealing our freedom at every turn and their excuse is they didn't know about it. Doubtful.
The Livermore laboratory sent off a final application to the U.S. Patent Office on Nov. 23, 2006, and about three weeks later Wattenburg said he called the Department of Homeland Security to share the good news. The patent application is on appeal, according to government records, but the federal government owns the rights to the idea.

Security Expert Bruce Schneier says "Stop with the security theater already!"

As has been suspected for quite some time, the stepped up methods and security now being practiced by the TSA won't do anything to make us safer. Bruce Schneier, security expert, takes the TSA, love pats and the porno scanners to task in this weeks Popular Mechanics.
Q: What is really being seen by these machines?
A: In theory, it sees stuff that isn't part of the body. So if you've got a stapler in your pocket, it will show up. The thought is that it will see stuff that a metal detector won't detect, like a ceramic knife. But this doesn't seem to be borne out by reality.

Q: The machines have shown up in the wake of the so-called underwear bomber, who tried to blow up a plane with chemicals stored in his briefs. Would this technology have stopped him?
A: The guys who make the machines have said, "We wouldn't have caught that."

Q: So what kind of attack will this prevent, that otherwise might be successful?
A: There are two kinds of hijackers. There's the lone nutcase, like someone who will bring a gun onto a plane because, dammit, they're going to take the whole plane down with them. Any pre-9-11 airport security would catch a person like that.

The second kind is the well-planned, well-financed Al Qaeda-like plot. And nothing can be done to stop someone like that.

It is time for the government and the TSA to get their collective heads out of heads out of their collective butts and take steps that will actually secure us against attack. The fact is, if the explosives have made it inside the airport, Janet, your security plan has already failed.

France comes to America

Protesting over 8% fee hikes at the college and reduced pensions turned violent today when a police officer was smacked around with his own baton. He had to pull his gun to defend himself against the attack.

This is very similar to the protesting going on over in France. In addition, there is very clearly union involvement-look at the pre-printed union protest signs. In France the unions have taken over many cities and are controlling the movements of every individual there. Is that where we are headed?

An exit question for you-I want to know if the young lady complaining around the 2:01 mark is even here legally. You can barely understand her because her accent is so heavy. The fact is California is going bankrupt supporting illegal immigrants who feel entitled to all that America has to offer while contributing nothing and becuase their elected officials have no idea how to run a state effectively. Will they come to the rest of us when they can no longer pay their bills? Well of course they will.

The Terminal Sexual Assualters are still at it, with the head of the organization, John Pistole,claiming that the new porno scans would have caught the underwear bomber:
Unfortunately this is patently false. First off the underwear bomber didn't originate his flight in the US, he originated in Holland. Second, it is highly in doubt that the scan OR the pat down would have detected powder in this guys underwear.
But Sen. Claire McCaskill is glad she can avoid "love pats" by going through the porno scanner. WTH?

Another ridiculous statement

TSA Administrator John Pistole says boycotts of the machines are "irresponsible."
"On the eve of a major national holiday and less than one year after al-Qaeda's failed attack last Christmas Day, it is irresponsible for a group to suggest travelers opt out of the very screening that may prevent an attack using non-metallic explosives," he says. "This technology is not only safe, it's vital to aviation security and a critical measure to thwart potential terrorist attacks."

Palin says she could beat Obama. I disagree.

Michael Steele thinks we don't like him because he's black.....

No, sorry, we don't like you because you are completely ineffectual as a leader, make multiple gaffes, use the office to promote "you" for your own personal gain and left absolutely no surplus for the upcoming Presidential election cycle. And those are just the obvious ones. Mr. Steele is so blind to his failings as a leader, in an interview with Al Sharpton this week Steele insinuated if the GOP didn't reelect him as chairman it would be because the GOP is racist.
But last week, in a radio interview with Rev. Al Sharpton, Steele ratcheted up the rhetoric, appearing to agree with Sharpton that if he is not reelected as RNC chairman, it will be because the GOP is racist, making “the brother take the fall.”

Sharpton said he couldn’t believe Republicans would even think of ditching Steele as RNC chair.

“You’d be the first brother run out after doing a good job. It would be interesting to see them have a historic win, and the brother takes the fall. Usually the brother takes the fall when they lose,” Sharpton said.

“You’re right. Well, you know, that’s going to be remain to be seen,” Steele said. “I get it. There are folks who are not exactly thrilled with my style of leadership. As I said recently, ‘they’ll get used to it.’”

Sharpton, who offered to “come march for you, Brother Steele” to Steele’s laughter (“that’s an interesting idea,” he said) was still incredulous.

“I don’t understand how that [firing Steele] could even be in the air. But it is the Republicans,” Sharpton said.

“Yeah,” Steele replied, laughing.
I have never been a fan of Michael Steele but his inability to identify fundraising opportunities and clearly and firmly articulate actual Republican policy makes him the worst possible choice for the RNC going in to this Presidential election cycle. We do not need a GOP Chairman who thinks abortion is a choice or that the war in Afghanistan is "Obama's war" rather than framing it in true Republican terms. Mr. Steele is a incredibly pathetic leader and has done absolutely nothing to further the standing of the Republican party in the minds of independent voters. We need true leadership who will effectively reach out beyond the echo chamber and begin to help others see the value that the Republicans bring to the table.

HAPPY VETERANS DAY!!!!! (and Happy Belated birthday to the Marines)

(AUDIO) Dylan Ratigan and Ted Rall have a discussion about the need for revolution in this country

(AUDIO) Matt Lauer thinks the Bush tax cuts should expire because we have had no job growth under them in the last seven years.....except he's an idiot.

(AUDIO) Dr. Drew says healthcare is going to hell in a hand-basket under Obamacare.

The Deficit Panel makes some recommendations, not ALL of which are bad. Some are though-we'll discuss the pro's and con's of what they outlined.

More Federal employees than ever before are making $150,000 per year or more. How do you feel about paying them that kind of salary?

A "how-to" pedophilia book available just in time for the holidays from Amazon.

San Fransisco to ban Happy Meal toys. Yes....parents are too stupid to take care of their own kids. Why don't they just ban kids-that would solve the problem too.
Restaurants would also need to provide fruits and vegetables with meals that come with free toys. The city said the measure was an effort to combat childhood obesity.

"We're part of a movement that is moving forward an agenda of food justice," Supervisor Eric Mar told the Los Angeles Times. "From San Francisco to New York City, the epidemic of childhood obesity in this country is making our kids sick, particularly kids from low income neighborhoods, at an alarming rate."
Oooop, look!~your socialism is showing. Food justice? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot indeed.

Oh yeah-I'm SICK and TIRED of this saved or created jobs crap! For the LAST TIME-you people have saved or created NOTHING but more debt, less jobs and total apathy.
In contrast to previous recessions, the number of unemployed who have been jobless for 26 weeks or longer has skyrocketed, suggesting there is a structural dearth of jobs being created in the economy.
Ya know what else there is? WAY TOO MUCH UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS!

And how about that Quantitative Easing? "Hi inflation, how are you?"
The Commodity Research Bureau index of commodities, the CRB, is a widely recognized measure of commodity prices. The CRB has shot up 28% since the Federal Reserve announced its QE2 quantitative easing program. While Wall Street is beside itself with joy over QE2, Main Street looks down the road and sees huge prices increases ahead in food, energy and other essentials.
The Obama Administration misused scientific findings in their report on the Gulf oil spill that was used to impose the 6-month moratorium on off-shore drilling. Reeeaaaallly??? Pft. No way these guys would like to get the desired result. I just don't believe it.
"We believe the report does not justify the moratorium as written, and that the moratorium as changed will not contribute measurably to increased safety and will have immediate and long-term economic effects," the scientists wrote earlier this year to Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Sens. Mary Landrieu and David Vitter. "The secretary should be free to recommend whatever he thinks is correct, but he should not be free to use our names to justify his political decisions."
The inspector general's report said the administration did not violate federal rules because the executive summary did not say the experts approved of the moratorium and because the department publicly clarified what the experts said and had offered a formal apology.
Yeah. That makes it all cool and stuff.

Amazon offering "How-to" Pedophilia book for the Kindle.

Pedophiles around the world can now download an electronic book to appeal "to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps liter [sic] sentences should they ever be caught." The e-book named "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-Lover's Code of Conduct" is available for $4.79 for your Kindle thru Amazon.

When questioned about the book and calls for a boycott against Amazon began, Amazon released the following statement:
"Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions," the Seattle-based company said in a statement released to TechCrunch and other blogs.
Apparently they also want to be sure to support the rights of pedophiles to have a book on how to have relations with children. It is disgusting to find information, by a medium that already preys on innocent children, how to have a "proper" and less horrific relationship available. For Amazon to distribute this information, on a criminal act-illegal in EVERY state-should be a crime in itself. While I have no tolerance for censorship or thought police, to me this would be like publishing a manual on how to effectively rob a bank. It seems if the act is illegal, the publishing of a manual should not be allowed.

It would seem right before the holiday shopping season is to start, this is a very poor move by a retail giant like Amazon. There is no doubt this decision will have repercussions.

Bill Press claims stimulus created (or saved) 3.2 BILLION jobs-thats all the jobs in the world.

Unfortunately Bill Press is an idiot. In the below clip from this weekends edition of "The McLaughlin Group" Press tries to talk over Monica Crowley who is making the point that all that stimulus spending did nothing to help the country. Funny enough though, Bill gets so caught up in his own euphoria of lies about this Administration-not only are his assertions completely false, but if he believes those numbers then Obama created or saved every single job on the planet......

Ooo, sorry Bill there are only about 300 MILLION people in the United States and that includes every man, woman and child alive right now. Unless he saved all the jobs everywhere on the entire planet, your point is a blatant lie.

In addition, lets take a quick look at the actual employment numbers-Obama vs. Bush.
According to the BLS's Establishment Survey, there were 132.4 million nonfarm workers in America in January 2001. When Bush left office in January 2009, this number was 133.5 million - a 1.3 million increase.
As just released last Friday, this number is now 130.5 million - a 3 million decrease since Obama was inaugurated.
According to the BLS's Household Survey, there were 137.8 million total workers in January 2001. This number was 142.2 million in January 2009, a 4.4 million increase.
As just released last Friday, this number is now 139.1 million - a 3.1 million decrease since Obama was inaugurated.
As such, depending on which survey you look at, Bush's job creation in his eight years was either 1.3 million or 4.4 million. Both surveys show job losses under Obama at basically 3 million.

So it would seem, even if Press meant to say MILLION he would still be completely WRONG and INACCURATE in is assessment of the spendulous.

Activist L.A. Superior Court Judge, Peter Espinoza, Says Pedophiles Can Live Near Schools, Parks

The latest in a series of bad rulings, favoring the rights of pedophiles over the rights of children, L.A. Superior Court Judge, Peter Espinoza now says the California residency requirements on sex offenders forces pedophiles to "choose between prison and homelessness." It is his opinion that "Jessica's Law" passed by voters by an overwhelming majority in 2006, places an undue burden on the sex offenders.
"The evidence presented suggests that despite lay belief, a sex offender parolee's residential proximity to a school or park where children regularly gather does not bear on the parolee's likelihood to commit a sexual offense against a child," the judge, who supervises the county’s criminal courts, wrote in his order. He also wrote that an increase in homeless sex offenders—supposedly an outcome of the law—would risk public safety."

It should come as no surprise, this is the same Judge who ruled that Roman Polanski was a victim of judicial misconduct by watching a documentary on cable.
He also ordered a man convicted in the execution-style slaying of a high school classmate be released. Due to the gruesome nature of the crime, the governor overturned the murderer’s parole because it would pose an unreasonable risk of danger to society. Espinoza ordered the release anyway.
Activist Judges must be stopped. The continual over-turning of the will of the people-imposing perfectly legal remedies on offenders through the voting process-cannot continue. The protection of the criminal over the victim cannot continue. We must find a way to rid ourselves of those Judges who want to only bastardize the legal process and manipulate the Constitution to suit the criminal offenders.

The Patriot Enclave-show notes: 11-4

ACORN is filing for bankruptcy. That makes me very sad. I guess Andrew Breitbart brought down the ACORN empire.
The ongoing political onslaught caused irreparable harm. This effort was a clear attempt to cast a shadow over the historic 2008 Presidential election, and set up a far right counter offense. Through those attacks we re-tooled and re-organized. Then again came the right-wing media blitz. This time of edited videos that misrepresented our mission, and consequently misled the public. The pressure and cost of defending ourselves in multiple investigations as a result of the falsified videos has eroded our organization. As a result we will be filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy by close of business today.
Wah wah wah...all the way home.

(AUDIO) President Obama on the elections.
As I’ve said before, no person, no party, has a monopoly on wisdom. And that’s why I’m eager to hear good ideas wherever they come from, whoever proposes them.
Really? Isn't this the same guy who said:
You can't have the keys back. You don't know how to drive. You can ride with us if you want, but you got to sit in the backseat. We're going to put middle-class America in the front seat. We're looking out for them

(AUDIO)Crazy Ed Shultz thinks Republicans want to impeach the President. He's a little obsessed with them taking it off the table.

GOP will start their session by targeting ObamaCare.

Black Panthers were back at the poll in Philadelphia and at several polling places in Texas.

(AUDIO)Poor Karl Frisch from Media Matters.....he apparently can't let go of his ideology long enough to grasp reality.

Republican gains at the State level will be a win for redistricting and therefore may help us in 2012
