GLENN: Here we have the Department of Homeland Security and TSA doing things
in an airport I've never seen before. I mean, if this isn't, if this isn't look,
if you're traveling, you're probably not going to have a problem. You know, it's
you're seeing a lot of stuff on the Internet and hearing a lot of talk on
television about it but I'm not sure what the average person is thinking about
this TSA thing. I think they are thinking, I just want to go home. And so they
are not necessarily people aren't all up in arms about this which in and of
itself is kind of disturbing, I think. Because your Fourth Amendment rights are
being violated. Your body belongs to you. The reason why we can have abortions
now is because your body belongs to you. "It's my body; U.S. out of my uterus."
Well, now you have the TSA, don't worry. Their hands won't be cold. They are
warm from the crotch of the last guy. And the audio from the did you hear the
audio from the you okay, Pat?
PAT: Yeah, yeah. I like that.
GLENN: The audio from the guy who took the video of the kid taking his shirt off
is remarkable. Now, he was in the airport. I think it was in Salt Lake City and
he the father removed this kid's shirt and somebody in line just takes a video
and says, I've never seen anything like this before. Well, he was interviewed
yesterday, and could we see if we can get a hold of him? I'd love to talk to
this guy. The audio is remarkable.
PAT: Yeah, from are you talking about the people in line standing there when
GLENN: Do you have you haven't heard it.
PAT: Apparently not. The only one I've heard is the are the bystanders that
said, "They arrested a kid now?"
GLENN: No, no.
PAT: It's not that?
GLENN: No, this is the TSA coming out and it's on
TheBlaze.com. Look for it. The TSA now said what are you going to do with that video? Why did you video? We
want you to remove that video from your phone. He's like, I'm not going to
remove the video. We would like you to delete the video from your phone now,
sir. I'm not going to do that. They finally let him go, he sits down and he sits
down in the waiting area and the TSA, they all come in and they sit behind him.
And he says it was intimidation.
I talked to the judge last night, Judge Napolitano and he said all this stuff he
said, Glenn, all this stuff they can't do. They just can't do. And they are
making up the rules as they go along.
Have you heard what's happening on Wall Street? The government is now going
after Wall Street hedge fund guys. Now, I'm not a fan of hedge funds. I was just
on the air just last week saying how come we're to the going after the hedge
funds? I wonder if we're going after George Soros' hedge funds or if we're just
going after all of George Soros' competitors? But Wall Street is saying you
can't arrest these guys. What are you arresting them for? What they did at the
time they did it, it was legal. And the government is saying, well, it's insider
trading. No, it's not. If that's insider trading, well, then you've got to
arrest everybody: And the problem is that the government is just making up the
rules as they go along now. There's video of TSA at a train station. Guy says,
what are you doing here, to the TSA guy. "Can't tell you that, sir." Well, I've
never seen you guys here before. Now, this isn't a train station. This is like a
commuter train in, like, Phoenix or some place. "What are you, what are you guys
doing here? I've never seen you." "None of your business, sir." "Well, I'd like
to know. Can I contact your supervisor?" "Sure can." "Well, can I get a number
or a name?" "You can call in the phone book, sir." "Well, who are you?" "Can't
tell you that, sir." "You can't give me your name?" "No, sir." "Can I get the
name of your supervisor?" "You can find it in the phone book, sir."
Then the TSA guy takes out a pad and a pen and says, I can take your name and
phone number, though. Why don't you give me your name and phone number? The guy
with the video says, I'm not giving you my name and phone number. To prove the
point, the guy taking the video went over to police and said, "Can I call your
supervisor? Could I what is your name?" "Officer gives the name." "Could I have
the name of your supervisor?" "Absolutely." "Do you have a number?" Officer
takes the card out and gives him a card. That is America. I don't know what this
TSA thing is. And I will tell you that Andy Stern and all his good friends,
Richard Trumka and all these guys are now ratcheting up the TSA, and the TSA is
now being courted by the unions. You know they are trying to unionize TSA and
they are being courted by the unions. "You need representation because people
are starting to treat you poorly. If you don't if people don't take care of you,
if the unions don't stand behind you, who's going to stand behind you?" This is
as much of a play on the TSA as it is on you! Make the people hate the TSA and
then the TSA employees are going to beg for somebody to protect them and
represent them. And they'll run right into the arms of the union.
You know when Barack Obama said he was creating his own private army? We need a
private army just as well funded, just as well equipped. There's a lot of people
saying he was talking about some, I don't know, some diplomatic corps. Uh huh.
Was he now? Some people say that it was AmeriCorps and whatever. It could be. I
don't know what it is. I don't know what the hell this guy is doing. Nobody
does. That's the point. But if you wanted to really have a security force,
wouldn't a unionized TSA under the umbrella of Homeland Security be the best
thing? I mean, why start a whole new security force when you already have one?
It's called the Department of Homeland Security.
By the way, did you see the research that came in on who wrote most of the
PATRIOT Act? Most of the PATRIOT Act was written years before, you know, and
guess who was instrumental in a lot of that? Joe Biden. Remember how fast the
PATRIOT Act happened? And none of us really we were all so spooked because of
that emergency, "Well, yeah, we gotta do it." No, we never had the discussion,
we never read this; wait, wait. I mean, we had the discussion but not like we do
now. Because we were all naive. More in a second.
