Jesse vs. the Fascist States of America
Ventura’s Venture Against the TSA
by Becky Akers
He called it the “The Fascist States of America” and thrilled patriots everywhere when he promised, “I will never stand for a national anthem again. I will turn my back and I will raise a fist” after “a U.S. District Judge dismissed [his] lawsuit against full-body scanners at airports” on a technicality.
In that suit, “Governor Jesse Ventura, a/k/a James G. Janos … [sought] a declaration that the TSA [Transportation Security Administration] and DHS [Department of Homeland Security, the TSA’s über-bureaucracy] have violated Ventura’s Fourth Amendment rights by subjecting him to airport security searches.”
Mr. Ventura added, “It’s really sad … [The judge] claimed her court didn’t have jurisdiction. But this is a constitutional question…”
Actually, it isn’t – at least to Our Rulers. And not just because they’re evil tyrants who spit on the Constitution. They are and they do, but what Mr. Ventura bumped up against is monstrously worse, something far more dangerous, entrenched, and systemic. Yet it remains so incognito and unsuspected that our hero might want to investigate it for his series, Conspiracy Theory, on TruTV.
The culprit is a totalitarian nightmare known as “administrative law.” And when we victims assume the Constitution reigns supreme, Our Rulers laugh: they legally (even if unconstitutionally) replaced it about a century ago with administrative law.
You’re undoubtedly more familiar with “administrative law” by its acronyms: IRS, BATF, DHS, DEA, SEC, FDA, FCC, FAA, TSA…in other words, bureaucrats. And yes, with their allergy to common sense, their ineptitude, and their unfathomable Jargon, bureaucrats are utterly worthless except as punch-lines. But they’re also responsible for most of the despotism smothering us, with scads of legal triumphs and precedents fortifying their dictatorship.
