WASHINGTON — A top US lawmaker unveiled legislation on Wednesday to protect individuals who tip off authorities to potential extremist threats from lawsuits, in the event that they turn out to finger innocents.

House Homeland Security Chairman Pete King introduced the "See Something, Say Something Act" as a shield for those "acting in good faith" and with "objectively reasonable suspicion" that a plot may be unfolding.

"Good citizens who report suspicious activity in good faith, should not have to worry about being sued," King, a Republican, said in a statement released by his office, citing "frivolous lawsuits" in 2007.

He did not elaborate, but that appeared to be a reference to a lawsuit brought by six imams removed from a domestic US flight that year after fellow passengers reported what they considered suspicious behavior.

US media at the time reported the imams paid cash for their fares, did not purchase return tickets, and chanted "Allah" as they were escorted from the flight.

The imams denied the reports and all accusations, saying they were guilty only of performing "normal evening prayers."

By the time security officials had questioned them and released them, their plane had left.

King said his bill would extend protections from individuals "who report suspicious activity anywhere."

The measure would build on the US Department of Homeland Security's "See Something, Say Something" campaign that aims to enlist US citizens in efforts to detect and thwart suspected extremist attacks.

Such efforts are relatively common: on the Washington Metro, for instance, riders are sometimes pressed in public recorded messages to notify authorities of any abandoned bags.

  2. I caught this "to protect individuals who tip off authorities to potential extremist threats from lawsuits" yesterday (tm) but didn't have time to mention it and even I would have been a day late there - alex jones had this one I'm sure. I just noted the new new update

    UPDATE: Supplements Eyed As Cause Behind Mysterious Iowa Football Illnesses...

    See what I mean yet?

    In other crap news.

    (From local AM 15 1530Khz radio)
    John McGuiness has a new show on KFBK, every day on his show seems to be a nightmarish cavalcade of ratshit insane ideas. Today's nightmare is making the unemployed take a drug test before getting paid unemployment insurance. Chances are good there's someone sitting around with a bill / cog for the machine. Regardless if you think the employer or employee pays for UE, a drug test? How about a monthly drug test for all law enforcement and anyone holding office, seems that would save more money and get to the real crime quicker Mr ex-Sacramento Sheriff John McGinness/radio dude/ass breath. I'll bet I could eliminate quite a few jobs if you give me the power to drug test any cop or official.

  3. (from drudge multiple things I see trending)
    (fuck the original url who cares!?)
    Drudge · UPDATE: Supplements Eyed As Cause Behind Mysterious Iowa Football Illnesses... More than a dozen college football players are hospitalized—all suffering from muscle damage. Nice, they ingest some weird shit then blame it on the rest of everything else is the problem. You know this is another seed story for supliment crackdown. Not to give the FDA any rest over on CNBC the taco bell meat grinder. Somehow I see this trending for some of that wonderful new FDA powers to work foo safety things out for us all in a universally bad way for people but great for government, un-needed radiation or un-needed poisoning by chemical of food, profit of course for the big corporations behind it all and of course banks. Yeah this will get the jobs goin! Let's shut down Taco Bell. I mean come on, all we have to do is SHAME taco bell and I bet they change their mix.!?

    anyway, that has me riled seems like little cogs of the "food safety act" being mis-used already, revolving door media/leo/establishment seed story agenda. Remember the establishment loving KFBK and the never lose your license supporting FCC are ready to help save money to pay the debt with plenty of wacked ideas all which have a theme. Fuck / punish the people, promote / reward the soul-less fucking corrupt, the big business, the banks.

  4. I got to say though thanks for putting together the real US position on the Egypt thing in plain English. I heard a bunch of shit talking wordsmiths invoking (lucifer and aries) this morning which made it unclear.

    (. .) LVX INRI because of the

    Deception, and Confusion (I'll bet Tsarion would appreciate the symbol above)

    And some war god like Aries because of the invisible financial war behind the eyes and under slow deceptive breaths. Hillary stays calm, but you know she's already got balls rolling somewhere. You can see her mind clunking. (either that or it's an earbud with voices) Maybe that's the light? Doesn't an electromagnetic wave have different parts energy, heat, light?

    Telling us to be peaceful is the inversion of Aries. Whatever, pick your own god or gods insert in if Aries don't do it for your symbolism.

    Yeah the US by not saying they don't support Mubarck actually say they support him. (After all everything we'be been told lately is just the opposite of the truth) That an a few shit talkers I hear this morning, I'm no psychiatrist, but I can tell those leg crossers were sticking to talking points and not being honest. The media there is controlled what do you expect?


    Which brings me to the internet kill switch. Isn't this now the warning horn that the government is completely out of control? If it goes dark, isn't this a signal that it's revolution time? Just asking, not suggesting. But if I am thinking it, I know others are.

  5. Egyptian Police Using U.S.-Made Tear Gas.
    Who saw that one coming?

    Biden: Mubarak's no dictator
    Then he must be your friend.
    And so continuing with the same logic you must hate the people of Egypt.
    And so continuing with the same logic you must
    hate the people of the USA.
