TSA Tussle: Apparently, this man needs more than a union…
Ladies and Gentlemen, fasten your seatbelts. Our plane trip to Miami International Airport is going to be a bumpy ride and our film today is rated PG-13. First, some background: The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is the agency comprised of those blue-shirted workers with badges who are responsible for ensuring that the airplane you board is devoid of any jihadists preparing to lay claim to | Read More »
Waiting In The Wings.
That’s not just the title of my fav CD by Seventh Wonder……. It’s also a way to describe what’s next on the Marxist Jihadi Administration’s agenda and a collection of news stories from around the world. — — — — — — — — — — But for starters, a bit of a love-fest, as Jim Hoft has a very interesting video clip over at | Read More »

American Bureaucracy is Insane
I missed this report from last week and it is totally worth highlighting.Because of the Christmas Day panty bomber and all the other threats and nonsense the Islamofascists are throwing at us, the TSA intends to make us all start walking through full body scanners where TSA agents will be able to see us in all our nekkid glory.Except the Council on Islamic Relations objected. | Read More »
Has ACORN Infiltrated TSA, or did they come in the Front Door?
In Mr Bushmill’s absence, I couldn’t resist passing this along. It seems TSA is threatening Richmond airport with sanctions if they do not give a convicted felon a security clearance. See the story here. The story is still unfolding as local Congressman Eric Cantor has asked for clarification, speraking with WRVA-AM morning host, Jimmy Barrett. Mysteriously, there is no mention of the story on WRVA’s | Read More »
JFK terminal being evacuated after security breach
NEW YORK — A terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport was evacuated Saturday after someone opened a door to a secure area and set off an alarm, officials said. The security breach apparently involved someone who left a first class American Airlines lounge at Kennedy’s Terminal 8, opened a door that was supposed to be used only by airport workers and walked through. Officials | Read More »
Government of Sinecures, Culture of Indifference
Sinecure: An office which requires or involves little or no responsibility, where recipients are able to store up titles and easy salaries. A Figurehead requires active participation, but nor real power. Your choice, one or the other, but “sinecurism” is a major cause of bureaucratic indifference in that it is quickly telegraphed to the staff that their department, division, etc have no real purpose other | Read More »
Collective Bargaining Has Hurt Border Patrol, TSA Shouldn’t Make Same Mistake
In light of the Christmas terror attempt, we must make sure that our airport security is as strong as possible. Unfortunately, Democrats in the Senate appear intent on confirming a new leader for the Transporation Security Administration (TSA), that would presumably make good on President Obama’s campaign promise to union bosses that he’d force TSA into collective bargaining even though it would weaken our security. | Read More »
TSA memo right after 9/11, doesn’t this make you feel all safe inside?
I remember coming across this TSA memo to all airport security people a few years ago and looked around for it. Remember, I believe this memo was put out in Nov just after 9/11. Read it and tell me what you think the takeaway was from your average TSA security screener? Memo Carrying Out Transportation Inspection and Safety Responsibilities In A Nondiscriminatory Manner This | Read More »
Senator Jim DeMint Steps Up Again to Lead. McClatchy Newspapers Cries.
McClatchy Newspapers is the alleged “news” organization that runs terrorist propaganda out of Iraq as legitimate news. It’s Washington editor tried very hard to push local McClatchy reporters in North Carolina to write damaging stories on Blackwater. It hired anonymous Iraqis during the Iraq War to write lots of unverifiable stories about the horrors of American soldiers.Today, in another example of its bias, its national | Read More »
Word of advice for 2012 convention planners?
Pick somewhere easily accessible via train. In the wake of the terrorism attempt Friday on a Northwest Airlines flight, federal officials on Saturday imposed new restrictions on travelers that could lengthen lines at airports and limit the ability of international passengers to move about an airplane. The government was vague about the steps it was taking, saying that it wanted the security experience to be | Read More »
How’s About a Universal Worker ID Card?
Whether or not you like the idea, the framework is in place, thanks to our beloved Department of Homeland Security. Under the authority of the Marine Transportation Security Act of 2002 (MTSA), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), in conjunction with the Coast Guard (USCG), has instituted the TWIC (Transportation Worker Identity Credential). * Who must get a TWIC? We anticipate that over 1.2 million individuals | Read More »
More Government Abuse of Citizens by TSA
I spent a lot of time in airports last year. I always get wanded and have to pass through the security patdown due to a piece of jewelry that no longer comes off. It’s annoying but unless I want to cut the bracelet off, I’ll live with it. Still, I’m not the only person who thinks the TSA and other law enforcement agencies routinely overstep | Read More »
