Obama’s Latest Lie Makes Him a True Demagogue
Published Wed, Jan 15th, 2014 Floyd Brown, Chief Political Analyst

As a worsening jobs picture appeared last week, Barack Obama sought to hit the reset button.

His strategy? Lie. (Surprise, surprise.)

5824841247_obama_liar_liar1_xlarge

You’re probably familiar with the little lies that the president has spewed in the past:

“If you like your plan, you can keep it.”

“You can keep your doctor, period.”

“The Affordable Care Act will reduce the deficit and save money for the economy.”

“The Benghazi attack was a result of an anti-Muslim video.”

“Al Qaeda has been decimated.”

“Republicans don’t care about people.”

But this time, it’s different.

Instead of a little lie, the president jumped right to a demagogue-level fabrication. (I guess Obama has become more comfortable in office during his second term.)

The lie was captured during a speech on income inequality…

obama-liar

“We’ve also seen how government action, time and again, can make an enormous difference in increasing opportunity and bolstering ladders into the middle class. Investments in education, laws establishing collective bargaining and a minimum wage – these all contributed to rising standards of living for massive numbers of Americans.”

But the problem is that this isn’t true.

The Lies Never End

More welfare, more federal regulations, more government intervention, more socialism… All of it has resulted in growing, not lessening, income inequality.

In fact, Obama’s central argument is so weak that the facts in his own speech show him to be dead wrong.

Obama said, “I’ll just give you a few statistics. Since 1979, when I graduated from high school, our productivity is up by more than 90%, but the income of the typical family has increased by less than 8%. Since 1979, our economy has more than doubled in size, but most of that growth has flowed to a fortunate few.”

But what the president doesn’t explain is that during the 1970s, the role of government in the economy was vastly expanded. In fact, the ’70s were the high-water mark of socialism until Obama’s own administration.

And ever since the passage of gigantic, welfare-state spending, income inequality has dramatically increased.

The reason is simple. People are poorer when they are young, and they’re richer as they get older. But most of the government’s income redistribution has taken from the young (the poor) and given to the older (the richer).

Only a seasoned demagogue could say otherwise, as the argument has no basis in fact or reality.

A more honest argument would say that as government spending has increased, income inequality has increased. As the public sector has robbed the private sector of vital capital needed to grow and expand private opportunity, wages have stagnated and income equality has become a growing problem.

Consider that government spending at the turn of the 20th century was less than 7% of GDP. In the 1930s, spending more than doubled (as part of Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal) to 20% of GDP. And in the ’60s and ’70s, spending grew further as part of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society social programs. In fact, it increased to about 36% of GDP.

In the ’90s and 2000s, government spending stayed in the range of 33% to 35% of GDP until Obama was elected. Today, spending has rocketed up to 40% of GDP.

Meanwhile, income inequality has steadily worsened. Therefore, giving the government more money (and more power) isn’t the answer. As it turns out, the fight for income equality is really a fight for freedom from the government.

U.S. Treasury sells last share of GM stock, ends ‘Government Motors’ stigma

Mike Colias

The Treasury today sold its last shares of General Motors stock, ending more than four years of government ownership in the nation’s largest automaker at a loss of about $10.5 billion to U.S. taxpayers. The government said in a statement that it recouped $39 billion of its original $49.5 billion investment into GM.

“We will always be grateful for the second chance extended to us and we are doing our best to make the most of it,” GM CEO Dan Akerson said in a statement.

“Continued investments, innovation, and job creation are just some of the ‘returns’ of a healthy GM and domestic auto industry.  Our work continues uninterrupted, and we will keep our sights squarely on our customers and transforming the way we do business.”

Should we call him “Calig-Bama” or “Barrigula”? Don’t answer that until you see how the biographical profiles of these two insane leaders matches up…Then decide.

CALBABABA

I finally got my chance to watch the classic uncut version of the movie Caligula last night … The version that is 2 1/2 hours long starring Malcolm McDowell and Peter O’Toole… This is the version still banned in Canada even today.  Other than the gratuitous sex and violence and bloodshed this was one interesting movie about the life of one very screwed up evil, lecherous, deviant, narcissistic, arrogant, boastful, cruel, vicious, vindictive, brutal dictator. 2 1/2 hours wasn’t enough and after watching this movie I found myself wanting to know more about this crazy insane monarch. My first question of course was were all of the stories I’ve heard that were in the movie true or is this just the imaginations of Hollywood gone wild … So I sat down with Google and went to work and as I learned more and more about Caligula I couldn’t stop myself from making these inevitable comparisons that are too hard to avoid.. I mean I couldn’t help but notice so many parallels between who Caligula was and our current seat warmer in the White House. Before you cry foul hear me out because this is going to give you the ability to view Mr. Obama in a completely different light.

First off, the stories, the events, incredible off the hook over the top debauchery that took place during his 1400 days as emperor are more than likely at least partially true… Every great story has some kernel of truthfulness floating around

images

I was prepared to just accept it all as fact because it was so entertaining but as I dug deeper I discovered that a lot of the evidence is pretty shaky. All the best stories are to be found in the brief biography by Suetonius in The Twelve Caesars. Suetonius, however, is not exactly the horse’s mouth, not even the horse-consul’s. For one thing, though he worked in the imperial archives and was the Emperor Hadrian’s secretary, he was born circa AD69 – Caligula died AD41. For another, he was a terrible, if delicious, gossip, unable to resist a good story.

Here are some biographical tidbits about Caligula and you tell me you think it sounds like anybody else you know.

dogbama

For starters Caligula lost both of his parents at an early age and was sent to live with relatives on a island where he was surrounded by people who held extremely radical and not of the mainstream view of things to say the least. It was during this time which were his formative years that he developed into the person he later became. All of those radical hedonistic lifestyle ideas he got while living on the island of Capri with his uncle Tiberius… Another prince of a man…lol. After he had Tiberius smothered he returned to Rome to claim his throne. Here he was raised by his people who endowed him with all sorts of characteristics probably didn’t really have. This was a people who have endured last administration and ready for some hope and change which is why you 24 he became the Emperor of one out of every four people in the world. Once he got into office he began consolidating power in every possible thing he did and said. Within two years he had made the Senate almost obsolete because he would ignore them and go around them and legislate unilaterally through executive Fiat whenever the mood hit him. (Sound familiar?)

07-nypost-obama

Right out of the gate the people loved Caligula… “Today, looking back, we often wonder how anyone could have actually looked forward to the reign of Caligula; but of course, we have the benefit of hindsight. To the general public of the Roman Empire he seemed like a perfectly normal young man. Many saw him in a sympathetic light” one of the reasons the people loved him so much was because upon assuming office he was also quick to put the vast treasury left by Tiberius to good use in winning greater popularity for himself. He gave the Praetorian Guard a hefty bonus, distributed money to the common people and declared a general amnesty to free all of those imprisoned by the paranoia of Tiberius.(This should all be starting to sound somewhat familiar). The other thing he was known for was his ability to throw an incredible decadent party that would last for days and weeks all on the taxpayers dime… There was no luxury you would not afford himself… No food to exotic. (Does this sound like anybody else’s you know who we spend $1 billion a year supporting?)

Obama-Caligula

He was also well known for engaging in deviant sexual acts with people of the same sex back then there was no place like Chicago’s “Man’s Country” where Barack and his pals would go for their deviant homosexual relief… So Caligula would just throw a party. One of the things he liked to do was to humiliate and degrade the members of the Senate which is equivalent of our Congress. (hmmmm) He would publicly humiliate these people, he would mock them and ridiculed them every way possible he could even to the point where they were required to address his horse as though it were prince. He was suspicious of everybody because along with all of this came the paranoia and delusions of grandeur that are part and parcel to narcissistic personality disorders of this magnitude. He finally declared himself to be a God … Much like we have our own presidential Messiah. He was quick to blame others for his mistakes and never got tired of spending the riches of the kingdom. When the treasury ran dry he started taxing everything including marriage to support his lavish spending habits. He enriched himself by confiscating the property of anyone arrested for treason and when in need of funds he might charge any wealthy Roman with treason. After 1400 days in office he was killed by his own people who now hated his guts and his legacy is one of absolute power corrupting absolutely just like BHO.

He biographical profiles of these two cruel, dishonest evil flamboyant smooth talking dictators are like pages from the same book I don’t think that Obama in the White House right now I think it’s a CaligBAMA OR Barigula… Your thoughts?

On radio this morning, Glenn read another email he received from “The Forgotten Man”: Here is another installment from the forgotten man:

lmaobama-spending-bill-sky-is-the-limit-political-humor

 

The Forgotten Man

Glenn,

The Republicans caved as I expected, but that’s not news where I live. As the discussions were going on in Washington this week, I called my senator and I called my congressmen too. I left them a message with my phone number and my e-mail address. I asked them to stand tall, to get the spending in order, to make Obamacare equal for all Americans, not just special interests. The recording that I received said they would send me a response. I’ve called them before, got the same recording. I won’t hear from them. After all, I’m The Forgotten Man.

The media today is blaming the TEA Party for all the ills in Washington. I laugh when I hear that, Glenn. Just give me 10 minutes with each of those so-called journalists, just 10 minutes. I’d ask them, “What is the TEA Party? How did the TEA Party get started? What do people who support the TEA Party principles actually believe in?” I can guarantee you, Glenn, they don’t know the answers. But I would share it with them anyway. We believe in liberty. We believe in freedom. We believe in a much smaller representative government. We believe in the God-given right that has been given to each individual. And then I’d ask those journalists, “When you give your daughter her allowance on Saturday and she comes back to you the next Wednesday saying she spent it all, and more, what do you tell her?” If they reply, “Well, you’re going to have to wait until next Saturday and you’re going to have to work it out,” I’d tell those journalists, “Welcome to the TEA Party.” If I met somebody in Hollywood and I asked them, “Why do you use Toronto to depict New York City in their recent movie,” and they told me, “Well, it’s cheaper to do it there,” I’d say, “My gosh, you sound like not only a capitalist but a new member of the TEA Party.” I’d ask them if they believe that every man, woman, and child should be treated equally, regardless of their gender, race, or religion. They would all say, in their journalistic ivory towers, “Of course.” And I would say, “Welcome to the TEA Party.”

debt-ceiling-obama-cartoons

 

You see, where I live, Glenn, using common sense, sharing common values, and exhibiting common courtesy is not the exception. It’s the norm. But I’m The Forgotten Man. And speaking of parties, maybe it is time for a third one. But not for the so-called journalists I see on TV because they already have enough parties. That’s why I don’t think they ask any that you had probing questions. In April I was watching the White House Correspondents Dinner on C-Span. Before it got started, they showed the journalists arriving. I thought I was watching the Academy Awards. Designer dresses, tuxedos, limousines. As each one entered, the flash bulbs would go off. Then they would stop, smile, turn slightly to the right. More flash bulbs, slightly shifting to the left, more pictures. I thought to myself, they’re not journalists; they’re the Kardashians. And it’s the same thing when the Washington Post or the New York Times or Vanity Fair throws a party. They will sell their souls to be there. But they don’t really have any souls to sell because they’ve already sold them before. If you work in the media in Washington or in New York or in Hollywood, I guess you have a decision to make: You can ask the tough questions that Americans actually would support you on, actually expect you to ask, or you can ask the “I want an invitation to the next party” question.

serious-debt-cartoon

 

Glenn, I’m through with all of them, but I want you to know I’m also through with complaining. Misery loves company, but I’m kicking misery to the curb. The next time I write to ya, I’m going to focus on what’s good, on what’s possible, what’s remarkable about America. I may be The Forgotten Man, but I haven’t forgotten about America. You say this all the time, “We’ll get through this.” We will. Just wait and see. Much the sun is always brightest right after the storm.

– The Forgotten Man

“The Forgotten Man is in the 49 other states today that didn’t get $2 billion job project for Mitch McConnell. That’s who The Forgotten Man is. They took your money because, see, Mitch McConnell needs to be reelected. Now Mitch McConnell will say, ‘I had nothing to do with that,’” Glenn explained. “I know. I know. I know. Was it Dianne Feinstein? She’s so great. You know how much she loves to build dams and dam up rivers. You know, they all love that in California.”

IT’S GOTTEN TO THE POINT where I need to put some of these thoughts down on paper

so I can look at them and figure out just what in the heck is going on right now. Of course I am talking about the Sandy Hook elementary school shootings, I am talking about the Colorado theater shootings, I’m talking about the FEMA camps and the ammo buys and the police state that we are slowly spiraling into. Nothing about the Sandy Hook killings makes any sense at all… If you haven’t been following this let me explain: 1) Children who were allegedly victims of the shooting have been seen still alive and have even had their pictures taken with Pres. Barrack Hussein Obama 2) Some of the parents (OK all of them) of the alleged victims who were interviewed aren’t really parents of victims but appear to be actors http://youtu.be/xYcNlJKP-Hw 3) First responders who arrived at school to assist with triage and treatment of the wounded were not allowed in the school …at all …ever…and sat idle in the parking lot 300 feet away from the door to the school and not directly in front of the school where they should’ve been. Why? While you’re thinking about that how bout that one…how about this one? 4) Other than the medical examiner who we will talk about in a second and some of the police nobody has really seen these children or the crime scene… Why? 5) Where is the video footage from the security cameras in front of the school? Why has it not been released or discussed? 6) Why haven’t we heard who the other two men seen running from the school are? One of them man was handcuffed and detained briefly and then allowed to sit in the front seat of a police car…. Even though he was dressed like the alleged killer; with camouflage pants and a black sweatshirt why don’t we know who this person is? And why was he let go? And what was he doing there? 7) What about the third man you can see running away very clearly in the video?8) how is it possible that there were federal agents at the school at the same time that the initial 911 call was made… Isn’t it customary for a crime to have been committed and called in before the police arrive? And why the feds? YES The Fed’s were there already before the school called 911??? 9) why were there so many interviews of fake people and families… Who are these people? Why are they at the scene of the tragedy pretending to be the immediate family of victims? These stories don’t add up …and I mean not even kind of!10) Robbie PARKER AND EMILIE PARKER- Check out this smiling and laughing father of one of the alleged victims named Emilie Parker…in this video you see her being hugged while mugging for a photo opp with Obama wearing the same dress.Very Creepy. . http://youtu.be/xSnhYMaGYuY . I will tell you what else doesn’t make sense about this father: Robbie Parker. On the same exact day as the shootings; December 14, 2012, Mr. Parker, the mourning father who is consumed with grief over the death of his beautiful little daughter some how finds the energy and time to put up a Facebook page called the “Emilie Parker fund” where he actively solicits money from strangers… Weird huh? Two days later of course he is with Pres. Obama and a very much alive Emilie Parker for a photo op. What in the hell is going on? 11) Check out these happy parents who have clearly not been crying or mourning or having problems sleeping as they joke with Anderson Cooper. This is not how parents act when they lose a six-year-old daughter to a senseless tragedy and such a violent death it’s just not. Start this video at about 2 min. 30 seconds We are going to use this video over again so just click on the embedded links …http://youtu.be/6c_6JzSqr2w 12) at the five-minute 25 second mark these parents who have been laughing and joking with Anderson Cooper about their daughter who was gunned down brutally start talking about Pres. Obama and the give him some of her artwork which ironically or not is the owl it appears on all of the illuminati swag… What are the odds? 13) there is no way a parent can tell the story that she tells at 8 min. and 10 seconds without crying. It just can’t happen. 14) at the 10 min. mark we get a new set of parents who are happier than the last set. These parents talk about their daughter as though she had passed away years before and not two days before… This is really creepy http://youtu.be/6c_6JzSqr2w at the 11 min. 16 seconds Mark is some of the worst acting I’ve ever seen how is it possible for all of these families to cry without tears? These people look well rested and their eyes do not show the strain of mourning. Why? Her makeup shows no stains or signs of running. Check out this link … It’s a link to crisis actors who play these parts professionally http://crisisactors.org/ or this link that will tell you that our government has done this type of training recently http://youtu.be/eHJ0hn7G9d4 15) Back to the shooter … Adam Lanza …what made this guy allegedly snap? How about something like this? the MK Ultra Project? The CIA’s use of mind control to create killers is a matter of historical record. MK-ULTRA was the code name for a covert, illegal CIA human research program, run by the Office of Scientific Intelligence that came to light in 1975 through investigations by the Church Committee, and by a presidential commission known as the Rockefeller Commission. 14-year CIA veteran Victor Marchetti insists that the program is ongoing and has not been abandoned. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_MKUltra 16) The people who are subjected to this kind of deep hypnosis are given triggers to kill others and ultimately to kill themselves …Here comes the police scanner mystery where the order is given to Adam to kill himself …. His trigger…. Listen to this…. Turn it up loud. Do you hear very clearly where someone says to him: “end the life of Adam” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_MKUltra 17) Finally …check out the Darren Brown Assassin where they did this http://youtu.be/Cc9y1UYIqv0 18) Add to all of this the fact that there is a very well established link between this shooting …the Colorado Theater shooting and the Grimm murders. 19) And last but certainly not least …the freak show medical examiner …check this guy out 20) And what about the principal of the school?? Dead or alive? UPDATES …. –MORE FAKE WITNESSES …HERE IS TEACHER KAITLYN ROIG …. ACTING! WHO CRIES WITHOUT TEARS? HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SAY THE EXACT SAME THING ‘MY HEART GOES OUT TO ALL OF THOSE WHO …LALALALA” Conspiracy or Coincidence?

Rather than let him resign they should have had a parade for this man for finally having the cajones to speak out and speak the truth cej

Liberalism is an atheistic cult. The DNC is actually communism wrapped in their liberal religion to mask the fact they are attempting to create their utopian enslavement. The first thing Communists want is to take God out of all government institutions such as schools and government to be replaced with secularism. Secularism is an atheistic belief which replaces the Bible’s Ten Commandments and teachings of honesty and integrity with moral relativism. One can lie, cheat and steal if the end justifies the means. This gives the government officials, elitists and leaders free reign to make up morality as they see fit and declare what is right and wrong. Rather than having personal morality or responsibility they believe in a social morality allowing them to live an immoral personal life and having it absolved through social morality.

The Democrats have replaced personal morality with social morality which means to be a good person you no longer have to worry about your personal failings but your societal failings. This allows you to put the social good in front of your personal responsibilities to make yourself a good person. You can be a drug addict, leave your family in shambles or steal from your boss but, as long as you drive a Prius and are concerned about polar bears, you are a good person. You can live any immoral lifestyle you want and, as long as you believe in Social Justice, you are a saintly person in their belief system. This is where the cult lifestyle comes in since you have to take God out of your life and replace it with social morality to work yourself into goodness. Liberals earn their way into their heaven of a perfect liberal.

Liberalism is a Godless religion whose High Priests are scientists. Since they don’t believe in God or a superior being the only people who can explain; existence or truth are scientists. They won’t accept the “myth” of creation so they have to have the scientist explain our coming to being through evolution. According to evolution the top of the evolutionary chain is man which means that the only thing superior to man is a more intelligent man or a group of men together like government or science. That should disprove their theory right there.

The average liberal will accept anything a scientist says since they think the scientific method is based on facts and infallible. When a scientist declares something true by consensus such as evolution or Global Warming they accept it as absolute truth. Never mind science has been wrong about similar theories such as acid rain, DDT, Spotted Owls or AIDs affecting heterosexuals they accept it without question. The liberal will accept it completely without hesitation and when someone dares to question the findings of these scientists, that person is attacked and declared a heretic or ignorant of science. The truth is science has been corrupted by politics and now is closed to competitive theories and will destroy careers of non believers.

Many liberal will brag about how they are vegans who love Polar Bears and try to save the earth from those evil 1%ers. They are tolerant of everyone except those who disagree with them. They live their lives to be the perfect liberal who try to earn their way into liberal perfection. Their lives are a series of clichéd phrases and actions, trying to be more liberal than the liberal next to them. They are all pro-“choice”, for homosexual marriage, for salary equality, they worship the earth and most of all you vote Democrat. None of these social laws have anything to do with personal responsibility but enslaving others to your social morality. Tolerance is their sainted behavior and intolerance and Republicanism is the ultimate sin. Every one of these cultish beliefs either directly or indirectly lead you to voting for more Democrats and less individual freedom.

While they look with sanctimonious disdain at Christians and their religious myths and intolerance to be scoffed at they will spend untold millions on frauds which have no credible proof. It takes far more faith to believe in evolution than God when you look at the extremely long odds of random evolving of our complex species yet they laugh at the idea there may be a creator. Both take large amounts of faith to fill in the gaps yet one’s is laughed at while the other is taught in every institution in the country. The reason is these institutions have agreed that evolution is true through consensus which means all gaps in the theory are ignored completely and questioning is stopped. Anybody who argues against the so called proof or evidence are declared heretics to their religion and not admitted into the church of science. This consensus tactic has been repeated throughout liberal politics to declare their ideas right and any dissention attacked.

The mediots are who determine which theories are valid and which need to be rejected and they of course are members of the cult. The media has decided to promote every tenet of their religion from evolution, feminism, veganism, racism, homosexuality, choice, Global Warming, hate the wealthy, communism and every other lifestyle agenda the establishment considers normal. The only miracle is after forty years of political and cultic brainwashing the American dream still lives in half of this country’s citizens. After being mocked and vilified for all of these years Conservatives still have the ability to make these elections competitive considering the overwhelming forces standing against them. There are still people willing to stand up and proudly proclaim their faith in God as well as their trust in individual responsibility.

This should still give us hope that if we find candidates who can articulate Conservatism there are enough people to vote for them. Rather than trying to be like liberals with all their group dividing “isms”, let’s explain how capitalism and God free you rather enslave. Rather than falling for the right colored or gendered candidate, we need to find the ones who can explain the concept of trusting in our own individuality to provide for our families and friends. Rather than bowing to evolution and Global Warming we need people to become informed of the giant gaps in those theories and ask the dirt worshipers to explain why evidence points away from evolution and why there was no warming of the earth for the past ten years?

Let’s move away from consensus as a Party and use the power of variety and experimentation to pave a way to victory from election to election. The country is starving for leaders and rather than following the affirmative action consensus model let’s promote leaders who will lead the followers into our ranks and start attacking the cult. As one of their heroes said, let’s choose our leaders by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.

US_TSA_check_86
Coexistence on this tightly knit earth should be viewed as an existence not only without wars…but also without [the government] telling us how to live, what to say, what to think, what to know, and what not to know. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, from a speech given September 11, 1973.

Slowly but surely …one by one we respond to one manufacture3d crisis after another and cede a little tiny bit of our freedom and liberty away to the government who is looking out for us. The next thing you know we are being subjected to random strip searches and rationalize that it is somehow OK. Currently we are only allowing ourselves to be freely groped at airports …but as the following article documents …TSA has taken it’s show on the road to a city or town near you.This is how “gradualism” works through a series of “created crises” which utilize Hegel’s dialectical process, leading us to more radical change than we would ever otherwise accept.

This article is going to really really make you angry… why in the world do we need anyone giving us the police state treatment domestically? Has there even been one incident? This is the sort of Hegelian gradualism the has a really bad ending because I know that I for one will not be a very cooperative subject if some $10.00 an hour TSA worker with a double digit IQ decides to pull me over and try to search me or my car. Read on then call your congressman who just voted to fund this nightmare.

TSA’s Grip on Internal Travel is Tightening …Wendy McElroyThe TSA agents and their “partners” want your freedom, your obedience, and control of your life.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is tightening its grip on domestic travel. I don’t mean the random, unpredictable security checks at bus, subway and train stations which already exist. I mean a coordinated and systematic police control of internal travel within America. Groundwork is being laid.

APPLICATION TO MAKE U.S. INTO AN AIRPORT SCREENING ZONE The application was tucked away on page 71431 of Volume 77, Number 231 of the Federal Register (November 30). It was surrounded by soporific references to forwarding “the new Information Collection Request (ICR) abstracted below to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA).”

The application for funding from the TSA constitutes a preliminary step toward systematically expanding TSA’s authority from airports to highways and almost every other means of public travel. The expansion would erase one of the last remaining differences between the US and a total police state; namely, the ability to travel internally without being under police surveillance. The total police state you experience at airports wants to spill into roads and bus stops, to subways and trains. Or, rather, the TSA wants to solidify and spread the fledgling and erratic presence it already has.

The official request reads, “TSA’s Highway BASE program [Baseline Assessment for Security Enhancement] seeks to establish the current state of security gaps and implemented countermeasures throughout the highway mode of transportation by posing questions to major transportation asset owners and operators.” An example would be an owner and the employees of a long-haul truck company. The application continues, “Data and results collected through the Highway BASE program will inform TSA’s policy and program initiatives and allow TSA to provide focused resources and tools to enhance the overall security posture within the surface transportation community.”

Meanwhile, the Government Security News Service provides additional details on TSA’s plans. TSA wants funding to conduct “security-related assessments” on about 750 “transportation assets” including “140 public transportation agencies.” An example would be bus depots or train stations.

Security Magazine (May 30th) offered a sense of how sweeping the definition of “assets” might be, including “trucking, school bus, and motor coach industries, privately-owned highway assets that may include bridges and tunnels, and other related systems and assets owned and operated by state departments of education and transportation.”

At this point, the goal is merely “an assessment.” But when did a government agency ever conclude that it didn’t need funding, expansion and more power? This is especially true of the militarized TSA that treats the public as “hostiles.”

The fact that the agency lamented the lack of a “single database” on public transportation is not reassuring. (Federal Register, Vol.77, No.104, pg. 31867, May 30) The entire push seems aimed at not merely expanding but also centralizing information, efforts and authority, with BASE itself being a consolidation of several other TSA programs.

TRAVEL AUTHORITIES WILL COMPLY
Private companies and public travel authorities will co-operate with this “voluntary” program of assessment and with whatever policies result. They will co-operate for two reasons: the stick and the carrot.
