Former Governor Jesse Ventura exclusively revealed to Infowars that a show set to air as part of Ventura’s popular Conspiracy Theory series that exposed how TSA body scanners were a major cancer threat was cancelled by Time Warner-owned TruTV.
It’s interesting to note that Ex-Dept. of Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff (Zio-Jewish) accepted payments from Rapiscan (body scan company), even as he was promoting paying the contractor millions of dollars in body scanner contracts. Source: Daily Tech (emphasis mine)
“This year we did eight of them but they’re only going to air seven, they won’t do the one we did on the TSA – that one apparently ain’t gonna make show time,” said Ventura, speaking to the Alex Jones Show.
The former Governor of Minnesota refused to be drawn on who exactly was responsible for killing the show.
Pointing out how radiation-firing body scanners had recently been removed from larger airports, Ventura explained how the censored show was an investigation of the safety and money motivation behind the body scanners.
“They’re still not admitting that they’re not safe, well then why are they replacing them?” asked Ventura.
“We exposed that these things are not safe, we exposed that the radiation levels are at an unsafe level, we exposed the fact that TSA employees aren’t allowed to wear radiation badges for their own protection,” added Ventura, explaining that the government was trying to avoid lawsuits by avoiding having any system in place that monitor radiation levels.
Alex Jones, who acted as a consultant for the show, confirmed that the program was a serious investigation of the financial motive behind the body scanners and how they posed a significant cancer risk. Prison Planet
FACTS & FIGURES
The X-ray scanners have faced a barrage of criticism since the TSA began rolling them out nationwide after the failed underwear bombing on Christmas Day 2009. One reason is that they emit a small dose of ionizing radiation, which at higher levels has been linked to cancer. Pro Publica
In addition, privacy advocates decried that the machines produce images, albeit heavily blurred, of passengers’ naked bodies. Each image must be reviewed by a TSA officer, slowing security lines. Pro Publica
The United States remains one of the only countries in the world to X-ray passengers for airport screening. The European Union prohibited the backscatters last year “in order not to risk jeopardizing citizens’ health and safety,” according to a statement at the time. The last scanners were removed from Manchester Airport in the United Kingdom last month. Raw Story
