When a Pervert Calls the Sociopaths’ Bluff

Hold onto your
hat: this is gonna be a wild ride.
We begin with
a plunge off the mountainside, a stunner so shocking we’ll question
our sanity: John "The Pervert" Pistole, Chief Deviant
at the TSA, has finally done something – gulp – right.
Go ahead, try
to recover: I’ll wait. Deep breath, relax, and repeat. All set?
OK, let’s try
it again. The Pervert, who legalized routine sexual assault on the
public at large – an atrocity no regime anywhere, however brutal
or totalitarian, has ever previously attempted or even contemplated
–, has behaved laudably.
To wit, he
stood up to the even more reprehensible lowlifes in Congress.
And poor Perv
is taking heat for it, too. The TSA’s army of critics – yay, guys,
go! Pulverize this filthy, vile agency! – has excoriated
him across the internet. "TSA
claims Congress has no jurisdiction over it; refuses to attend hearings,"
screams one while another’s headline blares, "TSA
Claims It Is Above Congressional Oversight." As the latter
explains, "The TSA has refused to attend a House Transportation
hearing ... , with agency head John Pistole personally refusing
to appear and declaring that the Congressional Committee has ‘no
jurisdiction over the TSA’. The hearing … [was] held by the Subcommittee
on Aviation, a part of the House Transportation and Infrastructure
Committee (TIC). It is titled HOW BEST TO IMPROVE OUR NATION’S
AIRPORT PASSENGER SECURITY SYSTEM THROUGH COMMON SENSE SOLUTIONS."
As such, this
dog-and-pony show was one in an endless series of such "hearings"
by various committees and subcommittees, all with similarly tiresome,
falsely positive, PR-type headings. Your
Intrepid Reporter has
commented on several
monstrosities. They’re as common as corrupt politicians and
do absolutely nothing to "improve" the TSA (an impossibility
anyway, as absurd as "improving" cancer) or even change
it. In fact, over the years that Congress has wasted its time and
our money on this nonsense, the TSA has degenerated, if that’s possible,
going from an annoying, dangerous, and completely unconstitutional
horror to an annoying, dangerous, completely unconstitutional, gate-raping
and porno-scanning horror.
Even The Perv
noted the multiplicity of these hearings – and the TSA’s usual attendance
at them. In a "Statement
in Response to House T[ransporation] & I[nfrastructure] Subcommittee
Request for TSA to Participate in Aviation Security Hearing,"
The Perv announced, "In the 112th Congress alone, TSA witnesses
have testified at 38 hearings and provided 425 briefings for Members
of Congress." Bingo. And has that achieved anything beyond
providing make-work for the otherwise unemployable in Washington
DC? Have passengers traipsed to an airport after any of these hearings
and breathed freedom’s fresh air sans blue-shirted thugs interrogating
and strip-searching them?
And so I reluctantly
submit that we should applaud The Perv for calling Congress on its
charade. Here are politicians hoping to score points with us beleaguered
serfs by scolding our assailants – all while continuing to "appropriate"
the plunder that pays said assailants and buys their toys, whose
manufacturers kick back-sorry, contribute to the politicians’ campaigns.
It’s a tidy system in which only the serfs lose, nor has Congress
any intention whatever of ending it. The Perv simply wearied of
his duty as punching bag – though I grin as I imagine his fear of
actual justice given his objections to Congress’ anemic slaps on
that Perv didn’t defy Congress, as his legion of enemies charge,
but only a committee he insists has no jurisdiction. That’s not
to say the TSA doesn’t routinely flout Congress’ dictates, proving
that appointed rather than elected leeches control the country (and
if we want to recover our freedom, we must extirpate the bureaucracies
as well as the political offices.) To cite just two of hundreds
of examples, an
"acting director" at the TSA "refused to provide
members of Congress with the newest version of the TSA's screening
manual," while another minion
shrugged at the Senate’s rebuke after he violated the Privacy
Add to these
institutional insults the personal ones the TSA’s brutes have visited
on congresscriminals. After Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) voted against
unionizing the TSA, its lackeys "singled
him out" for porno-scanning. And who can forget Rand
Paul’s "detainment"? Most recently, we learned that
exposed the chest of a 17-year-old girl whose uncle happens
to be Rep. Ralph Hall (R-TX).
You might think
such challenges would have long ago driven Congress to annihilate
the TSA. Alas, no. Even when the agency degrades their womenfolk,
these wusses don’t take a horsewhip to Perv and his ruffians. Instead,
mewl for a "federal investigation." If the TSA spits
on Congress, it’s because these nauseating sissies merely wipe it
off and slink away with muttered thanks.
The Perv seems to be factually correct when he claims the Transportation
and Infrastructure Committee [TIC] lacks power over the TSA. But
we won’t take his word for it; heck, we wouldn’t take this perpetual
liar’s word on where the sun rises. Still, it’s curious that
if TIC wields the authority over the TSA that its outgoing chairman,
John "The Toupee" Mica (R-FL], claims, its website doesn’t
mention it. Under
"Jurisdiction," TIC lists "Issues and agencies,"
including several of the latter by name ("Federal Aviation
Administration…National Transportation Safety Board…"). But
"Transportation Security Administration" is noticeably
daunt The Toupee. Recall that this weasel and utter hypocrite says
he created the TSA (until he first asserted this 2 or 3 years ago,
I never heard anyone – neither the media nor his fellow politicians
– credit this equally perpetual
liar with such a crime). But now he pretends to despise his
hatchling: "Unfortunately, … this mushrooming agency has spun
out of control…" he
thundered in answer to Perv’s no-show. Rich, isn’t it? Rather
like a murderer’s lamenting that his hatchet "spun out of control"
to leave a trail of traumatized victims behind him, much to his
or not The Toupee established the TSA, he and his fellow sociopaths
hold its purse-strings. Far from "spinning out of control,"
the TSA dances only as long as Congress pays the piper.
