What has your racism and your sexism to do with the issue at hand??

 

But it's not relevant 

Only relevant as friendly advise to save a fellow poster from self-induced ulcers and high blood pressure.

 

1. If you're a Woman because you realize - One more White - Radical Right-wing -  Religious Christian Finatic Male is a weeks away from taking his seat on the Supreme Court and wiping away Decades of your Struggle to claim your Womanhood - your rights to be the Woman you want to be

More racism, more sexism, and now religious bigotry thrown in totally off topic.

 

2. If your skin even in the Middle of Summer can be contrasted against anything other than the color of Milk or Freshly Fallen Snow

Racism.

 

3. If the way you dress exhibits any kind of expression of independence or non-conformity

????????

 

4. If the way you speak exhibits any hint of a past that had it's roots anywhere but the Waltons Front Porch

Xenophobia.

 

5. If while in between bites of your Ice Cream you steal a kiss from your same sex partner

Homophobia.

 

Please Explain the Purpose of the Government Surveilling Americans who have.............

 

No Prior Criminal Behavior or Record

Simply Observing to PROTECT others.

 

Are on no Law Enforcement Watchlist or Radar as suspects in any illegal or suspicious behavior

Simply OBSERVING to protect Others.

 

Are on no Terror or Person of Interest Watchlist

Simply observing TO protect others.

 

Please also explain the reason TSA would document how many trips you make to the bathroom or how many times you turned to speak to the person who is squished right up beside your face in airline seats that do not allow even a person of normal height and weight to take a deep enough breathe to yawn

You'll have to ask the experts.

 

I can offer one explanation - someone wants a database on every American and who knows what other Government Agencies are conducting these same kinds of unwarranted intrusions & invasions of Privacy in a effort to contribute to each Americans Profile being built in that Data base

Yep, and There is a Monster sleeping Under your Bed.

 

TSA Agents themselves speak to the fact - that this program has not led to a single arrest of anyone found to be breaking any law or connected to anyone who is even considering breaking any US Laws or causing anyone harm

Since it has been going on in one fashion or another for all these years, someone must think it has some value.

 

TSA Agents themselves speak to the fact - that this program removes valuable staff from conducting their primary objective of screening individuals and materials that have raised Red Flags

See above - and go get that ice cream cone.

Yes, very used to this because we "fly while Muslim."  At least, my husband and family are Muslim.  We get a polite little letter from TSA in our luggage every single time we fly.  If there has been an air marshall on one of my flights back from the middle east, I'm sure I'm under observation.   I hate flying, probably look nervous, and walk up and down the aisle for exercise, because 8 hour flights are the worst.   

 

Or you know, maybe I'm NOT under surveillance.  Since I'm a blond white female.  But I exhibit almost all those behaviors.   On a cell phone?  Yup.   I'm playing Words with Friends on my cell phone most of the flight.  Smiley Very Happy

 

There's really no reasonable expectation of privacy on a plane, so their mere observation doesn't bother me.  But if they document behaviors and then somehow use those against people -- like putting them on a no-fly list -- then I have a big problem with it.

Have we just become so immune to all the Horrors Trump has inflicted on Americans and others around the World - that this just gets added to the list

 

This is illegal - even the TSA Agents Disagree with this practice

 

US media report several sources have said "Quiet Skies" has sparked criticism within TSA.

 

John Casaretti, president of the Air Marshal Association, said in a statement that the programme "does not meet the criteria" of "acceptable" missions.

 

"The American public would be better served if [air marshals] were instead assigned to airport screening and check in areas so that active shooter events can be swiftly ended, and violations of federal crimes can be properly and consistently addressed," he told the Globe.

 

Hugh Handeyside, a lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union's National Security Project, said the surveillance was "a big waste of taxpayer money and raises a number of constitutional questions".

 

"These concerns and the need for transparency are all the more acute because of TSA's track record of using unreliable and unscientific techniques to screen and monitor travelers who have done nothing wrong," he said.

If these Americans are not on any watch list - why are they being tracked -
 
Trump & GOP building DATA BASE on Political Enemies?
 
TSA Has Been Secretly Monitoring Travelers Who Aren’t Listed On Government Watch Lists
 
Passengers added to the “Quiet Skies” program are tracked by air marshals, who write minute-by-minute reports about their behavior.
 
Federal air marshals have been secretly tracking dozens of American travelers each day who aren’t listed on government watch lists or suspected of a crime, The Boston Globe reported this weekend.
 
Air marshals then track such passengers and document their behavior at airports and in-flight, including how often they go to the bathroom, how many hours they sleep, if a traveler has “strong body odor” or “wide open, staring eyes.”
 
According to a bulletin issued by the agency in March and obtained by the Globe, the TSA tracks around 35 people every day. 
 
Which means thousands of Americans have been surveilled under the program since its inception.

Trump has TSA SPYING on Innocent Americans

Message 30 of 30

Trump has ICE rounding up - who knows who - there is no Ovesight

 

Trump now has TSA - surveiling American Citizens without Warrant and with probable Cause

 

Who knows what he has the FBI and CIA doing to American Citiznes

 

He's already blocking our 1st Ammendment rights to know what our Government is doing by banning the Free Press from demanding answers to tough questions

 

When is the last time Trump held a News Conference and allowed all journalists from all networks to ask Questions - NEVER

 

 

(CNN)In a previously undisclosed Transportation Security Administration program, federal air marshals are tracking American citizens not suspected of a crime, not under investigation or who are not on any terrorist watch list, the Boston Globe first reported and CNN has confirmed.

 
The aim of the program, known as "Quiet Skies," is to gather details about the peoples' behavior on the plane to try to thwart any potential aviation threats, the Globe reported and a TSA official confirmed to CNN.
 
Before people board a plane and are watched by federal air marshals, officials use information from the intelligence community and their previous travel patterns to help choose whom to target, according to the TSA official.
 
The Globe reported that thousands of what it called unsuspecting Americans have been the target of surveillance in the airport and aboard flights by small teams of air marshals, according to government documents it obtained.
 
According to the Globe, officials look for such behaviors in those who are under surveillance as being abnormally aware of surroundings; exhibiting behavioral indicators such as excessive fidgeting, excessive perspiration, rapid eye blinking, rubbing or wringing of hands; with an appearance that was different than information provided; or if the person slept during the flight.
 
An air marshal source told CNN some marshals have concerns about the program, saying focusing on passengers who "look suspicious" pulls the marshals away from their mission of protecting the cockpit because they are keeping up surveillance of the individual. That means rearranging marshals' seating and how they are deployed, meaning which flights they are on.
 
Marshals observe the people for behavioral cues that officials have previously associated with those of terrorists, the TSA official said.
 
All American citizens who enter the United States are automatically considered for inclusion in the program as officials check their names against watch lists and examine their patterns of travel, according to agency documents obtained by the Globe.
 
The TSA official would not divulge more details but said individuals are not targeted based on race or nationality.
 
Officials would not say whether any terrorist plots have been thwarted because of this program.
