McCaskill defends TSA groin checks… Calls them “love pats.”
Really Claire?… Really?

Your choice: Grope, grab or show your junk
In case you wondering how much a TSA agent sees with the new scanners:

Radical Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) defended the TSA “love pats” also known as groin checks yesterday during a hearing yesterday in Washington DC.
CBS reported:

Transportation Safety Administration chief John Pistole and several senators from both parties defended the new, enhanced airport security screening procedures as necessary in the face of a persistent and evolving terrorist threat in a hearing Wednesday on Capitol Hill.

Pistole, calm and confident in the face of an increasing public outcry against the procedures, talked extensively about the repercussions of last year’s attempted Christmas Day bombing being the impetus for the enhanced screenings before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, TSA’s oversight committee.

“We know the terrorists’ intent is still there,” Pistole testified. “We are using technology and protocols to stay ahead of the threat and keep you safe. (Several near-misses by terrorists on airplane bombings) got through security because we were not being thorough enough in our pat-downs.”

Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri said prior to Pistole’s testimony that she believed TSA was in a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situation, because people would be hopping mad at TSA if Christmas bomber Umar Farouk Adbulmutallab had succeeded. She went on to say the new advanced imaging technology–which has caused uproar because of its leave-no-secrets imaging and potential health risks–is more of a blessing than a curse.

“I’m wildly excited that I can walk through a machine instead of getting my dose of love pats,” Sen. McCaskill said.

Hat Tip Geri

Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) said yesterday that the groin checks are a violation of the 4th Amendment and there is no evidence these new body scanners make us more secure.

  1. “Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri said prior to Pistole’s testimony that she believed TSA was in a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situation, because people would be hopping mad at TSA if Christmas bomber Umar Farouk Adbulmutallab had succeeded. ”

    What did TSA gate procedure have to do with this guy’s bomb not going off? He still got it on the plane. I thought the whole point of these “love pats” was to keep that from happening. I hope somebody saves a clip of this for her run in ’12.

  2. Of course Claire will never have to experience one of these love pats, then again, she may get a thrill out of them seeing how her re-election is looking slim to none.

  3. To the best of my knowledge, TSA screenings have yet to stop their first bomber. I refuse to be irradiated without some medical necessity and I will NOT be patted down like a criminal being locked up in jail. Got to tell you, between the TSA and the airlines, I will never fly again. I’ve even stopped entering give-aways where the prize is a trip to somewhere one must get on a plane to get to.

  4. Somehow I see a connection here with Client #9 and “love pats” only the client paid for his while we are subject to penalty and government background investigations if we don’t comply.

  5. This woman is sick. Being groped by a stranger is a “love pat”?

  6. What an idiot. Not only did the Christmas bomber not board a plane in the US, but we weren’t be subjected to government-sanctioned sexual abuse by union thugs until recently.

    And yes, INC #5, it does suggest something disturbing about her that she considers be groped against your will by a complete stranger a “love pat.”

  7. I agree Granny. I think its time to organize a boycott of air travel in general. Neither you or I have a voice in Washington any longer, but the airline lobby sure does. I am done with flying until the insane administration is history and the TSA is forced to adopt rational security procedures.
    In any case I am starting to come to the conclusion that the administration is at war with the American people. This security theatre is payback for voting out the Dems in the house. Its the Obama way or the highway and if you don’t like it. Vell Ve haf Vays of making you hurt.

  8. Rather than subject innocent civilians to gross abuse of their Fourth Amendment rights and what in any other context would be clear-cut sexual assault, all the US authorities had to do in the case of Mr. Would-Be Panty-Bomber was pick up the phone and heed the waring of the perp’s own father, who in fact called US authorities and warned them about his son’s activities.

    TSA’s current policies have not stopped, and will not stop, a single terrorist attack.

  9. Wow. And all they wanted to do in Arizona was ask to see some ID!

  10. A few years ago in Germany, a mohammedan stabbed a Rabbi. The judge called it “warning stabs”.

    Though two can play this game.

    If I get groped by TSA agents, and then, in reply, would zap them with a tazer for groping me… it’s nothing personal, really. It’s a love zap!

  11. “In any case I am starting to come to the conclusion that the administration is at war with the American people.”

    Stuart, the ‘rats ARE at war with America. At least OUR idea of what America is, or should be. McNumskill is not in the administration, but she is very definitely an enemy of liberty.

    It is put up or shut up time, but I suspect we will put up. As for me, I wouldn’t fly unless ABSOLUTELY necessary.

  12. Gate Rape?

  13. You can boycott the airlines, but I don’t think the government cares if you fly or not.

  14. So Claire, what happens when they bring down an airplane with a stinger missile, or shove explosives up their a$$, or blow up a school, or gun down people in a mall….? What then Claire? Huh? What will you have us submit to then, rather than actually look for the people that are trying to kill us. We know exactly what you and the rest of your commie friends want Claire, and it isn’t to keep us safe.

  15. The gov’t won’t care if you fly or not until the airline lobbies complain.
    Interesting to follow the money and learn Demorats are making millions off the sale of these scanners.
    Shocked, I am shocked.

    Gate Rape! Nicely done

    I’ve come to the conclusion that they do not actually want us to fly. This is just their way on engineering a collapse of the airline industry that will require a “stimulus” along the lines of the GM buyout. In other words, an excuse to nationalize the airlines.

    Lily, who cares whether the government wants us to fly or not. Let me clue you in on something: Even if this is part of some scheme to take over the airlines, it does not mean that it will work out for them. You think they are going to lose sleep over us submitting to this degradation? Much more likely, than the scenario you elude to is that the government does want us to submit, and keep flying. The one thing they DO NOT WANT is a showdown that gets the attention of Americans that don’t care about politics, and makes them take notice.

  18. McCaskill is a sexual predator’s dream come true. Watch some pedo’s defense attorney use that in court: ‘Your honor, my client did not harm that 4 year old by fondling her genitals, it was a “love pat” no different from an airport screening!’

    That bitch has set a precedent for it.

  20. My family and I will not use the airlines as long as they think they have a perfect right to fly-fook us. Let LOTS of employees become unemployed. Let the gubmint take over the air travel. Let the whole world stop travelling in and out of our country except by private plane and landing fields. Let the mail stop. I DON’T CARE IF THEY DON’T CARE.
