Legalized Groping: Court Grants TSA The Right To Assault You

A US appeals court has just ruled that we Americans have no recourse when an aggressive Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screener commits an assault on us. The the 3rd US Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia ruled that TSA officers were not "investigative or law enforcement officers," and therefore were protected from liability under the Federal Tort Claims Act. What does it say about us that we allow the government to commit crimes against our bodies for the "privilege" of traveling inside our country? Is there a better way?

Trump Hammers NATO. Good! Let's Get Out!

President Trump is making waves as he arrives in Europe for the NATO summit.

Sen. Graham Visits Syria, Attacks Trump Plan to Pull Troops Out

Hawkish Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) made a surprise visit to Syria on Monday, stopping off in the city of Manbij, which is held by US and Turkish forces. Graham delivered a speech clearly designed to attack the idea of a US pullout from Syria.

Keeping Government Employees Out of Your Business

Don’t expect a victory in an American court if you file a lawsuit arguing that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) should be shut down because it is stealing people’s money, that the so-called security checkpoints of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) should be eliminated because of the many sexual assaults they facilitate, or that Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents should be punished for assaulting and kidnapping people who have harmed nobody, as well as for invading and ransacking such people’s homes.
