DOJ Threatens No Fly Zone Over Texas

Once again the Obama administration has shown it's arrogance against the will of the people. I am outraged that the egotistical people in the DOJ, Homeland Security and this Administration can be such an influence on the Sovereign States with their threats. We know they have threatened Arizona with lawsuits  over SB 1070. Gov Jan Brewer is requesting the Supreme Court to appeal lower courts decisions.

Texas legislatures wanting to protect citizens from TSA's intrusive groping, while boarding planes or in other public places was ready to pass HB 1937:  
"Relating to prosecution and punishment for the offense of official oppression by the intrusive touching of persons seeking access to public buildings and transportation; providing penalties."  
Senator Dan Patrick (R-Houston) was presenting the bill for a vote when the a threatening letter from the Department of Justice was passed throughout the floor. 
The DOJ actually threatened to stop all air traffic into and or out of Texas!

"If HR [sic] 1937 were enacted, the federal government would likely seek an emergency stay of the statute. Unless or until such a stay were granted, TSA would likely be required to cancel any flight or series of flights for which it could not ensure the safety of passengers and crew."

John E. Murphy, United States Attorney signed the letter sent to Texas leaders.
Realizing the impact of such action and seeing the response of Senate members Sen. Patrick quickly withdrew the bill stating, “I will pull HB 1937 down, but I will stand for Liberty in the state of Texas.”

Two years ago Oklahoma received a threatening letter from the U.S. Attorney General. Ok. had just passed an amendment making English their official language. Naturally the Feds did not like this so they threatened to cut off approiated funds to the state.

In 2009 both Montana and Tennessee passed a Firearms Freedom Act, resulting in letters being sent from the Feds. There was no explicit threat in those letters, but they completely dismissed any constitutional standing or legitimate concern by the state, instead (incorrectly) affirming the Federal Government's supreme authority over the issue at hand.

In 2009 Montana and Tennessee enacted a Firearms Freedom Act. Rather than sending threats, letters were sent to both states completely dismissing constitutional standing or legitimate concern by the states, instead (incorrectly) affirming the Federal Government's supreme authority over the issue at hand.

Recently Rhode Island passed medical marijuana legislation. Gov. Lincoln Chafee received a threatening letter from the DOJ. The U.S. Attorney was quick to point out the federal laws relating the controlled substance. Basically according to him only the Feds have any say in the manufacture and use of a controlled substance. He also said the DOJ would use full resources to bear against any state which attempted to oppose the Federal Governments complete control.

These are only a small number of threats that have been sent out to States and organizations by the U.S. Department of Justice. Where does this administration get off telling how a Sovereign State should conduct its business as long as they are within the realms of the United States Constitution?

This administration should not flaunt Texas dropping this bill as this is just the beginning of the storm. Citizens and states alike are outraged over the new intrusive scanning and x-rays now being used by TSA. These techniques are direct violations of the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue,
but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing 
the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
Hawaii, New Hampshire, New Jersey and Pennsylvania have similar anti-groping bills in the making sources close to the Tenth Amendment Center expect at least 10 other states to follow suite in 2012. It appears to me that the arrogance of the United States Government are over stepping their bounds. For more control over the people they interpret the Constitution to fit their needs. Many states and organizations have not got the funds to thwart the vicious, illegal acts being implemented by the DOJ and Obama.

I take all these threats being made on the States very personally, these are threats to the Freedom of myself, family and every citizen of the United States of America. 
If we continue to let them strip our rights we will not be Sovereign States or a Sovereign Nation 
Under God...We will be a Communist Country.
Patriots we rose in 2010 and we MUST Rise Even Higher in 2012!
