TSA refused to let mother comfort her
weeping wheelchair-bound daughter, 12,
as they detained her for an hour ´after
detecting explosives on her hands´

Daily Mail [UK], by Lydia Warren

A 12-year-old girl who uses a wheelchair was left in tears after TSA agents detained her for nearly an hour at a Texas airport after saying they found traces of bomb residue on her hands, her mother claimed today. Shelbi Walser was travelling to Florida with her mother, Tammy Daniels, for treatment for her brittle bone disorder when she was stopped at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport in Texas. A TSA agent swabbed Shelbi´s hands and she tested positive for explosives. But the wheelchair, which is likely to have transferred any substance to her hands as she pushed it

Sue the pants off these idiots on a power trip! I am so UP TO HERE with the PC-approah at our airports. Learn from the experts: Israel, & get over the fear of profiling, or the airlines will continue to suffer from not enough consumers!

Some people just need to calm down. She tested positive for something, so they have to check it out. I suspect it was the mother´s antics that got the child upset, not the TSA agents. If she had treated it as just another inconvenience, part of air travel in 2012 America, the girl could have just sat there calmly reading a book and waiting it out as the TSA did what they needed to do. This falls into the same category as those travelers who get furious and yell at the ticket agents when their flights are delayed because of the weather.

We are incrementally being taught to submit to government authority without question. When the time comes that we are ordered to board boxcars, we will submit without objection. The People no longer realize that the government is supposed to work for US. We are subjects of the government now.

re #3 -- the article & videos make it clear everyone was cooperating. The security officials at the bare minimum should have let her mother be with her. They should be sued for false arrest & kidnapping of a minor. Period.

I´m sure the girl was feeling some excitement about the trip. Then being taken away from her mother by authority figures had to have been stressful. I really question the separating of mother and daughter here. That may be unlawful.

Ya know, I could almost be with #3 up to a point--except for one thing: [note to self--do not yell!]: The Stupid Buffoons Didn´t Check The Wheelchair! And BTW, #3, exactly what "antics" are you talking about? And BTW 2nd--what did the bomb expert that they waited an hour for do? Some things just get under my skin--and TSA and the sheeplike acquiescence of the public at large is one of them. The TSA´s cookie-cutter mush mouth bureaucrat-ese responses to this kind of thing literally--that´s literally literally, not Joe Biden literally-- add insult to injury.

#3--I couldn´t disagree more. If the mother got upset--she had every right to! It was her child! What did they expect? A little common sense was in order her. You call a supervisor, the supervisor see it´s a child, asks the mother a few questions (they can be trained to ask questions that detect true criminals) and let them go. TSA is out of control. I don´t even fly any more if I can avoid it.

Aren´t there basic rules in law enforcement about the treatment of detained minors? Aren´t they supposed to have a parent or guardian with them to prevent questionable actions by authorities? Several posters are correct about one thing; we are being behaviourally trained to accept without question whatever the gubmint wants to do with us.

The TSA is full of thugs who prey on the weak. My wheelchair bound Mother was detained, searched and humiliated because they found her Swiss Army knife in her pocket. She rightly told them it was for her own protection from terrorists. Because she would not give it up, they would not allow her to board her aircraft! She missed her flight and the airline would not refund the ticket price! My husband and I had to drive over 600 miles to take her home. TSA and the entire transportation system has been hijacked by communist liberals.

The child had brittle bone disease - if treated roughly she could have bones broken and her body harmed beyond repair. One of many reasons to avoid flying. From what I hear, flying anywhere has taken a big hit. Their employees should be fired and if they were so stupid as to think that that little girl was a danger, I wonder how they walk down a street with other people.

Most of today´s TSA agents were employed as security guards working for private firms at the airports they now staff. By the morning of September 13, 2001,they were federal employees with new uniforms and their pay nearly doubled from the minimum. All in thirty six hours. They later took oaths and were given badges.
Maybe that can begin to explain the agency´s ineptness.

European Tycoon Accuses Google of

One of Europe´s most powerful media tycoons has accused Google of seeking to create a digital ´superstate´ outside the control of national regulators and privacy laws. Mathias Döpfner, head of the giant German multi-media company Axel Springer, says Wir haben Angst vor Google: "We are afraid of Google." [Snip] Writing an open letter to Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google, in the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Döpfner said: "Google not only knows where we are going in our cars, but also what we do while we’re driving.

David Axelrod, who is credited with masterminding Mr Obama´s presidential victories in 2008 and 2012, will join Labour´s general election campaign team as a senior strategic adviser, the party announced. His appointment was been hailed by Labour as a major coup, and ´´seriously bad news for the Conservatives´´, at a time when Mr Miliband has been under fire from sections of his own party for his campaign tactics.

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country.

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery."

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
