Do you fidget, use a computer, have a jump in your Adams apple or a cold penetrating stare?"...

... You're on a list. Welcome to the Quiet Skies

Federal air marshals have begun following ordinary US citizens not suspected of a crime or on any terrorist watch list and collecting extensive information about their movements and behavior under a new domestic surveillance program that is drawing criticism from within the agency.

The previously undisclosed program, called “Quiet Skies,” specifically targets travelers who “are not under investigation by any agency and are not in the Terrorist Screening Data Base,” according to a Transportation Security Administration bulletin in March.

TSA officials, in a written statement to the Globe, broadly defended the agency’s efforts to deter potential acts of terror. But the agency declined to discuss whether Quiet Skies has intercepted any threats, or even to confirm that the program exists.

3. Adam's apple: The familiar feature on the front of the neck that is the forward protrusion of...

... the thyroid cartilage, the largest cartilage of the larynx. It tends to enlarge at adolescence, particularly in males. It is usually said to take its name from the extrabiblical story that a piece of the forbidden fruit stuck in Adam's throat."

https://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=2137

A conspicuous up-and-down motion of the Adam's apple. A movement of the throat visible while gulping or swallowing, as in nervousness.

Usage: The Adam's-apple-jump is an unconscious sign of emotional anxiety, embarrassment, or stress. At a business meeting, e.g., a listener's Adam's apple may inadvertently jump should he or she dislike or strongly disagree with a speaker's suggestion, perspective, or point of view.

5. And this was leaked

You gotta wonder how many other programs like this the Federal government is running. They have a long history of engaging in nefarious activities like this.

Operation Contreplo is just one of many.

I am truly shocked the progressive left is now all in love with the FBI.

Federal law enforcement agencies are a threat to all our liberties left or right, we need to keep a very close eye on them not blind trust.
