Becky Akers, columnist at Lewrockwell.com, discusses her blog post “Déjà Vu for the Tenth Time This Year” about the repeated arrests of TSA screeners who can’t keep their hands off kids; how government agents are empowered to essentially molest children and view pornography in their official capacities, but arrested for doing the same things outside work; what a private security alternative to the TSA would look like; the long history of government influence in the US airline industry; and why a government powerful enough to persecute minorities will eventually subjugate everyone else too.

Her articles and columns have been published by LewRockwell.com, Campaign for Liberty, The Freeman, Military History Magazine, American History Magazine, the Christian Science Monitor, the New York Post, and other publications.

  1. HYPOCRISY — IS HYPOCRISY

    Bless her darling heart, now I have some questions for the dear young lady with a voice of about age 20:

    (1) Why is it that in Iran, every teenage boy in the neighborhood does not know the curve and shape of ever woman’s buttocks in the neighborhood?

    (2) What is your opinion on legalized pornography, the skin tight cloths on so many girls we see?

    (3) Do you always wear loose fitting cloths?

    (4) Do you wear pants, shorts or a bathing suit in public?

    (5) Do you approve of men wearing skin tight pants?

  2. (6) As America has the highest divorce rate world wide, as 80% of the time it is women forcing men into divorce court against their will — in your opinion — why is that so?

  3. Why don't you write about what she has to say about TSA: why you agree or disagree, instead of this ignorant drivel?

  4. BAD SEX — ROOT CAUSE

    Becky Akers: “And there are TSA screeners who on their off-duty hours commit statutory rape.”

    And so, in the entire history of ours the most promiscuous society the world has ever known, has any women ever been found guilty of the “statutory rape” of a 17 year old young man?

  5. Sexual orientation — How to offend no one

    The corporate rich own all of the entertainment industry, including all hardware used on the WEB for pornography, and strive above all things do they to maintain a free-sex most promiscuous society, all to make their excessive wealth look pale in comparison you see.

    Its like a radio interview 20 years ago where the CEO of General Motors was asked why his corporation owned a pornography company on the WEB and he replied, “Its a profitable investment.” Truth is, WEB porno is zero profit as most is free for the clicking.

    So, as our goal is to terminate all wars, as only by a solidarity among a majority of working men can it be accomplished, surely being celebrity is the only way to go.

    For they are — gay men — marriage is one wife for life men — and an infinite number of orientations in-between. For while all this quick pleasure and long term anger and hatred is being generate, the Wall Street rich are bribing our corporate owned government for the next bailout.

  7. This WEB site is looking for a few good men, so get an attitude adjustment or get lost.

  8. Looking at all of this from outside the US, I ask myself where all the Americans have gone to? The Americans I grew up with would never put up with those sick actions, never. Are they being replaced by Zombies?

    Boycott the airlines. Make it hurt the industry, hurt badly.

  9. PURE FICTION — SURELY

    This very young lady is of the educated and intelligent middle-class, whereas, TSA screeners are paid laboring class wages, which means that most all are of my slow and careful thinking laboring class. Which means we have another classic case of educated people accusing us uneducated laboring men of being the sex perverts of society.

    This WEB site claims to be striving to organize men in solidarity to end all wars, but the effect of this article is to generate hostility and anger between educated working class men — and uneducated laboring class men.

    We laboring men demand an apology — immediately. Otherwise, we must conclude that this WEB site is funded by the corporate rich nobility.

  10. Let me guess, the corporate rich hired an overabundance of sex perverts to be TSA screeners so that the division, anger and hatred in society would be jacked up even higher. Their ability to hoard excessive wealth being in direct proportion to the division in society.

  11. This is quite possibly the most incoherent babbling ever seen on the Internet. You must have been smoking some really good stuff at the time. Pass the bong, dude.

  12. Its common horse sense, either you have it or you don’t, either you walk in the light or love the darkness.

  13. When it comes to your ramblings, there's definitely a horse involved, but the wrong end is doing the talking.

  14. LEADER OF THE HERD

    Its the mainstream bully syndrome, for Steve H. with his tunnel vision being so mainstream restricted, so dominant paradigm suffocated, he has no comprehension or ability to add something intelligent to the conversation, so bash away with his mainstream garbage he must. Such is the madding crowd syndrome, a popularity contest to see who can be the most mainstream and the leader of the herd.

  15. "Pistole's Perverts"–aka the Transportation Scam–er, Security Administration–is comprised of government-issue dregs. Of course, isn't government in general? Piss on the lot of 'em.

    The airlines should be allowed to establish their own security procedures, with free market considerations in mind. An airline whose security is consistent with respect for the indivdual passenger won't lack for business. An airline whose security is reminiscent of "Pistole's Perverts"
    deserves to disappear.

  16. Mr. Ellis,

    You clearly don't know a lick about me. I'm about as far from "mainstream" as one can get. I don't watch TV, I don't believe a thing the media says, and am convinced that everything the government says is a blatant lie. Does that sound like I've fallen for the "dominant paradigm"?

    By the way, what does a "madding crowd syndrome" mean? Is English your second language, or are you tapping away at your keyboard while illicit drugs surge through your veins?

    I seriously doubt that I would win a popularity contest as the mainstream herd leader, but I can confidently state that you are a horse's ass. Stop making a fool of yourself.

  17. "I ask myself where all the Americans have gone to?"

    Those who are trembling and afraid have gone mad! They are locked up on this continent as on an island and imagine that the rest of the world is like them.

  18. MAINSTREAM — MEDIA BRAINWASHED

    (1) Those who strive not to gracefully enlighten, but to brutally silence.

    (2) Those who violate the golden rule of communication, “Spike the truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant for they too have their story.” Desiderata

    (3) Those most aggressive and wealthy in the upper half of society, the voting majority who love our government just the way it is.

  19. PUBLIC ENEMY — NUMBER ONE

    “He who speaks the truth breaks his own neck.”
    Hess

    For example, I state a well established fact that USA has the highest divorce rate worldwide and 80% of the time its the wife’s lawyer who drags the husband into court. Whereupon 4 of the readers so hate my enlightening with the truth — that they click my thumbs-down button.

  20. No women allowed? Or allowed but not allowed to comment? Your prudishness is affecting your judgement. Prudishness and burqas are not requirements for peace and definitely not for freedom.

  21. John Ellis should know only dirty ole men "know the curve and shape of ever woman’s buttocks in the neighborhood" and most likely ONLY the 1s with such but fettish….

    What if he was to give an interview on security and someone asked him whether he prefers Viagra or Cailis… Rude, offensive, brain dead!!! Try the TOPIC!!!

  22. John Ellis are you going through a divorce and you're (ex) wife's lawyer has just drag you to court ?

  23. As a paralegal and leader of a divorce trauma support group called Turn Hearts of Fathers, we helped over a thousand couples get through divorce without the corrupting influence of attorneys jacking up the stress to jack up the fees. And in the process exposed the long standing practice in Wisconsin of Family Court Commissions getting a third of the attorney fees in a divorce action — under the table. The Wisconsin State Bar kept putting out press releases accusing us of practicing law without a license, for a while we had a statewide media battle going. As practicing law is one of a kind legal problem solving, whereas our free divorce packets contained five simple legal blanks that a divorcing couple filled out.

  24. PURE FICTION — SURELY

    This very young lady is of the educated and intelligent middle-class, whereas, TSA screeners are paid laboring class wages, which means that most all are of my slow and careful thinking laboring class. Which means that we have another classic case of educated people accusing us uneducated laboring men of being the sex perverts of society.

    This WEB site claims to be striving to organize men in solidarity to end all wars, but the effect of this article is to generate hostility and anger between educated working class men — and us uneducated men of the laboring class.

    Therefore, we laboring men demand an apology — immediately.

  25. First, reading through the thread – Mr. Ellis appears to be commenting on the wrong blog- because this story is not about divorce, or how old Becky Akers is…

    She is a very accomplished writer for example. Her work can be found at LRC and other places online:
    http://www.lewrockwell.com/akers/akers-arch.html

    She, George Donnelly and many others have been covering government abuse at airports and other areas for some time.

    The TSA is the white-hot sexual predator authorized by the DOD and Homeland Security that Hitler would wish his SS to emulate.

    You would do well to read her articles on the TSA, listen to this and others of her podcasts, and check out the flyerTalk threads as well.

    After all that- now then read about the TSA program at bus stations, football stadiums, VIPEr teams on roads and highways, border checkpoints – 100 miles inland! This is happening. Its now, and we must stop it. You thought red light cameras were bad, you ain't seen nothin' yet…

    THE GOVERNMENT IS PURE EVIL IN ALL THAT IT DOES. IT MUST BE DISMANTLED DEPARTMENT-BY-DEPARTMENT, TRILLION-BY-TRILLION.

    THIS IS THE RON PAUL NOMINATION

    Ps. great interview, Scott!

  26. SAYS — DemandRonPaul.com

    “Mr. Ellis… this story is not about divorce…”

    To the contrary, for this story is about minimum wage earning uneducated laboring men being accused of sex habits most criminal, which classifies as on topic the following:

    (1) 95% of laboring men have no sex habits whatsoever, having been forced against their will to be celibate. For 95% of fighting age laboring men are divorced and living separate from wife and kids.

    (2) Whereas, 90% of men of your educated middleclass live with wife and kids. Further, men of your intelligent middleclass are the trophy husbands that laboring class girls desire most, which means that you gods of society get all the legal and illicit sex your heart desires.

    (3) Everyone here at this WEB site is of your educated middle-class but me, which for you is a real problem. For the lower half of society has no education beyond high school, over 40% of your upper half love government just the way it is, and your only hope for a protest movement large enough to end wars is to start showing some concern and compassion for us slow and careful thinking laboring men.

  27. DemandRonPaul.com:
    “The TSA is the white-hot sexual predator authorized by the DOD and Homeland Security”

    Of course, for High Society owns all of the entertainment and porno industry and to make their immoral and excessive wealth look pale in comparison, their highest priority is to make our society the most promiscuous, criminal and immoral known to man.

    And as these “white-hot sexual predators” would be fast thinkers of your educated middle-class, surely not people who would work for minimum wage, you would have no problem blowing their cover and exposing the scam.

  28. Its not what you say, but the way you say it, to wit, “Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant for they too have their story.” Desiderata

  29. And this interview being about sexual habits violating a society norm, surely this has something to do with every teenage boy in the neighborhood knowing the curve and shape of every woman’s buttocks in the neighborhood.

  30. Hey Ellis, isn't it about time you clocked in for your shift running the prono scanner? Sub Commandant Pistole will be upset of you are late to work.
