Airport scanners as Porn

The photos I’ve seen of models with carefully concealed “weapons” which show up on these new age “safe” x-ray machines will be pure Porn. The simulated images we are seeing are invasive, and people will be paying for the privilege of providing a peep show for perverts sitting in a room looking at men’s penises and women’s nipples. These poor guys — they will have to work hard to keep adjusting the equipment for the best view of human anatomy they most want to see. The UK is concerned that use of these full body scanners on CHILDREN will violate their laws against Child pornography will be violated.

It is only a matter of time before the strip searches begin — again the airline passengers will be paying for the sadistic thrills given to poorly trained ex-burger flippers.

The Porn images can be found at the 0bot’s blog. And yes, Sweetie, this is happening on Reverend 0bama watch. And yes that means that the security screw-up that let the Crotch bomber on the airplane in Amsterdam is HIS responsibility. ALL the security f*ck-ups of the GWB regime were left in place and no effort was made to tighten up the database filtering of the watch list. The response of Rev. 0bama’s gang is to increase the names and confusion.

Honey (addressing all the deluded 0bots) under Rev. 0bama everyone is under suspicion. Perhaps he need to put his social secretary in charge of security? (She’s the one getting blame for letting 3 uninvited people into the big bash held for the Leader of India.)

Update #1

Then there is the question of X-rays and the hazards to the human body.

Are Airport Full Body Scanners A Health Menace?

Bottom line — they could be.

“Officials must naturally defend compulsory passenger X-rays as harmless. But they are signing no guarantees because ionizing radiation in the X-ray spectrum damages and mutates both chromosomal DNA and structural proteins in human cells. If this damage is not repaired, it can lead to cancer. New research shows that even very low doses of X-ray can delay or prevent cellular repair of damaged DNA, raising questions about the safety of routine medical X-rays. Unborn babies can become grotesquely disfigured if their mothers are irradiated during pregnancy. Heavily X- rayed persons of childbearing age can sustain chromosomal damage, endangering offspring. Radiation damage is cumulative and each successive dose builds upon the cellular mutation caused by the last. It can take years for radiation damage to manifest pathology.

A leading U.S. expert on the biological effects of X-radiation is Dr. John Gofman, Professor Emeritus of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Gofman’s exhaustive research leads him to conclude that there is NO SAFE DOSE-LEVEL of ionizing radiation. His studies indicate that radiation from medical diagnostics and treatment is a causal co-factor in 50 percent of America’s cancers and 60 percent of our ischemic (blood flow blockage) heart disease. He stresses that the frequency with which Americans are medically X-rayed “makes for a significant radiological impact.”

Update #2 — Leave it to the Australians to be truthful about the scanners

Airport admits ‘strip search’ body scanners WILL show people naked

New ‘strip search’ full body scanners being trialled in Australia will show people’s private parts, officials have admitted.

But to spare their blushes, the faces of passengers will be blurred.

Domestic travellers leaving Melbourne airport over the next six weeks will be asked to test the new security scanners that can see through clothing.

The X-ray backscatter body scanner has been described by critics as a “virtual  strip search.”

The scanner is similar to one that was trialled at Paddington station in London in 2006 in direct response to the tube bombings in July 2005.

Similar systems have also been tested at Gatwick airport.

Cheryl Johnson, general manager of the Office of Transport Security, said:’ It will show the private parts of people, but what we’ve decided is that we’re not going to blur those out, because it severely limits the detection  capabilities. ‘

‘It is possible to see genitals and breasts while they’re going  through the machine, though,’ she admitted

However, Ms Johnson said there were a number of measures in place to tackle  concerns about privacy.

“The faces are automatically blurred and … it’s only a chalk-style outline,  it’s not as invasive as some of the other equipment that we’ve got,” she said.

The scanner uses a low energy X-ray to reveal any objects, metal or otherwise,  under a person’s clothing, including body features.

The testing will be  entirely voluntary during the trial,  which is being undertaken to test how the  new scanners would affect the flow of passengers through the security point.

“It does see through clothing, but it’s not a photographic image, it’s a low-energy X-ray that reflects off the skin,” added Ms Johnson.

Update #3
Mother Jones columnist, James Ridgeway’s article: Airport Scanner Scam, lists the firms who will be getting the “stimulus  funds” which will be used to pay for the $150,00 machines. The question is will each passenger file by a single machine, one by one, holding their arms high (as if under arrest), and how long will this take to take PORN photos of all the flying public as well as the flight crew? Apparently these machines are American made, so that means that two companies will be benefiting from the Crotch Bomber’s suicide attempt. Barn Door is closed — but shoes will still be removed (required after the last Barn Door was closed.)

Yet the rush toward full-body scans already seems unstoppable. They were mandated today as part of the “enhanced” screening for travelers from selected countries, and hundreds of the machines are already on order, at a cost of about $150,000 apiece. Within days of the bombing attempt, Reuters was reporting that the “greater U.S. government shift toward using the high-tech devices could create a boom for makers of security imaging products, and it has already created a speculative spike in share prices in some companies.”

Which brings us to the money shot. The body scanner is sure to get a go-ahead because of the illustrious personages hawking them. Chief among them is former DHS secretary Michael Chertoff, who now heads the Chertoff Group, which represents one of the leading manufacturers of whole-body-imaging machines, Rapiscan Systems. For days after the attack, Chertoff made the rounds on the media promoting the scanners, calling the bombing attempt “a very vivid lesson in the value of that machinery”—all without disclosing his relationship to Rapiscan. According to the Washington Post:

The above quote is from, Mother Jones, author: James Ridgeway.

Masochistic and authoritarian personalities are crawling out of the woodwork — demanding that scanners be used on everyone so that “they” will feel safe. Problem is — whatever the guys living in caves somewhere in Islamic no man’s land — will explicitly be designed to foil the full body scanners. Whoever is the next one to try the newest tactic is probably already on some nation’s security’s radar. So when the passengers (who have been treated like criminals) and flight attendants foil the next attempt — the call from Washington DC lobbyist will be MORE MACHINES, BETTER MACHIINES! And Americans will hold up their arms in surrender and accept whatever else the fools come up with — AFTER THE BARN DOOR IS CLOSED.

  1. We could just all fly naked. No carry on luggage, no clothing, just a bunch of naked passengers. Of course, next we’ll get some orifice bomber or something.

    I’m still angry about the alleged boob threat. Women had to fight to get those invasive searches eliminated. We’d never actually had a boob threat, but that didn’t stop them from jumping on the bandwagon and profiling women. In fact, targeting women is something they’ve been doing for a while now, even Joan Rivers. We need to start looking more closely at young Muslim males, no matter how unfair it is. People think nothing about being unfair to elderly women.

    • There were never any details about the “boob” bombs and women had to go through hell because of the story invented by the Russians. I’ve read that the Russians had reason to blow the plane up themselves — so that they could “legitimately” go after the ones they claim to have placed the bombs.

      Elderly women have been a special target of the TSA — I helped a friend in a wheel chair through the San Juan airport and witnessed how disabled elderly women are treated — like common criminals. I had a 94 year old neighbor who was distraught and upset after being forced to remove her shoes WITH NO ASSISTANCE. It was shortly after that trip when she decided to end her life and she stopped eating. I will always blame the TSA — because I believe that she injured her back when she was forced to remove her shoes.

      The crotch bomber may have been a patsy as the Black Agenda report suggests.

      The sanitized photos we are seeing of the full body scanner are NOT the ones that the TSA will see — they will be seeing higher resolution photos.

      One thing we have not heard is HOW will they match the scanned pictures with the individual — a buzzer to alert the TSA to remove someone for closer “inspection”?

      What bothers me more are the comments — I wonder how much people are willing to give up in order to feel “safe”? They just don’t understand that this is all being done for show.
