Janet Napolitano Eyes More Places To Frisk You

If you thought that staying Earth-bound would allow you to avoid the Department of Homeland Security, well, not for long. The madness may spread.

I think the tighter we get on aviation, we have to also be thinking now about going on to mass transit or to trains or maritime. So, what do we need to be doing to strengthen our protections there?

Really, we are at great risk of getting on a commuter bus? Seriously? There's an anti-terrorist madness afoot where the Department of Homeland Security thinks its responsibility is to eliminate all terrorist threats regardless how remote the threat and how high the cost.

If the threat to our airlines is really as high as the government makes it out to there are easier ways to cut the risk. But our government refuses to keep Muslims from immigrating to the country and refuses to profile for young Muslim males most at risk of being terrorists. So TSA inspectors fondle or x-ray little children and old folks. This is an outrage born from political correctness. All are now suspects. All are seen as capable of thought crimes that could lead to actual crimes. Real causes of terrorism are ignored because all must be treated as equal in ways that would have puzzled the Founding Fathers.

All of this is an offshoot of the racist colonialism the elite of the West are waging against their own nations and peoples. It's all inevitably caused by open borders and the mentality that supports them. Invite the world, invite the world's conflicts and criminals. Not just Islamic terrorist and Muslims but MS-13 and "La Eme" as well. This is what needs to be said about the "anti-terror" security efforts. Multi-racial empires are always police states, have to be, you can have freedom or you can have diversity, you can't have both.

Ja, but how do get an empire in the first place? Big US gov sits on a three legged stool:

The generous interpretation of the commerce clause provides the legal cover to exercise power. The income tax provides revenue and control of individual citizens. And a fiat currency allows the state confiscatory funding to do with as it pleases; armies, welfare state, and gargantuan bureaucracies, etc.
