Airports Begin to Show Signs of Distress Due to Shutdown

Not only are the TSA agents refusing to come to work, but air traffic controllers are being effected as well.

government shutdown

With the American ruling class democrats out vacationing, ignoring Donald Trump’s pleas to return and work out a deal on the government shutdown, the nation’s infrastructure is beginning to stress.

There are nearly one million federal workers who are currently expected to be working without pay right now, with many of these folks drawing their first net-zeropaycheck just yesterday.  The situation is so dire that TSA agents are calling out of work in record numbers and protesters are gathering outside of the White House. 

Now, amid the anger and the action, the nation’s airports are beginning to strain.

Facing double the usual number of absences among unpaid TSA screeners, the Miami airport will close one of its concourses most of Saturday, Sunday and Monday to make sure TSA can adequately staff the remaining security checkpoints.

Meanwhile, the national union representing air traffic controllers — who are also working without pay during the shutdown, entering its 22nd day Saturday — sued the government, claiming they are illegally being denied pay.

And aviation-safety inspectors are still off the job, deemed not to be essential enough to keep working during the shutdown.

Should the shutdown last much longer, a vast majority of these furloughed federal employees will lose hope and simply refuse to work without pay, further compounding the already frustrating issue at hand.

New Women’s March Board Member Gets Kicked To The Curb After Two Days On The Job Over Anti-Semitic Tweets

This lady is deplorable.

There seems to be something about the Women’s March that’s a beacon for individuals who just love to hate Jews and Israel. In fact, the group’s latest board member was only on the job two days before being booted after anti-Semitic tweets were discovered on her Twitter profile. Hmmm. Really does make you wonder. Why do these kind of people gravitate toward this group? via TheBlaze: On Monday, The Washington Post reported that inaugural co-chairs Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour had stepped down from their positions at the organization, noting that the trio had “been dogged by accusations of anti-Semitism, infighting and financial mismanagement.” Conservative news outlets were quick to point out that many in the 17-member board replacing the former leaders were no better, and exposed an array of anti-Semitic tweets and messages expressing support for black nationalist Louis Farrakhan. One of the new board members was Zahra Billoo, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. The Washington Examiner reported that Billoo’s Twitter feed was “filled with anti-Zionist tweets, which the Anti-Defamation League has deemed ‘anti-Semitic.'” On Wednesday, Billoo revealed that she had been voted off the board of the Women’s March, following “an Islamophobic smear campaign.” She went on to slam the organization for letting her go, saying “it has effectively said, we will work on some women’s rights at the expense of others.” So wait a minute. Is she really going to play the victim card here? It certainly seems that’s what she’s doing. It’s kind of hard to garner any sort of sympathy for a person trying to claim they are the victim of some sort of hate and racism, when they themselves have been engaged in heinous acts of hatred themselves. Billoo wasn’t removed because she’s a Muslim. She was removed…

New Video Shows Beto O’Rourke Moving Toward Openness Of Snatching ALL Semi-Automatic Firearms

Yeah, that’s a no from me, Beto.

Published

on

Not too long ago, failing Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke stated, in no uncertain terms, that he was all about openly confiscating citizens’ AR-15 rifles, despite the fact that owning such a weapon is protected under the Second Amendment. Because why allow a pesky little thing like constitutional rights get in the way of desperately trying to pull ahead in the political polls right? Well, a new video is out on the Internet that seems to suggest that Beto himself is open to grabbing up all semi-automatic firearms. Evan Todd, a survivor of the Columbine shooting, confronted O’Rourke in Aurora, after arriving an hour late to the event. Todd is actually a supporter of the Second Amendment, despite having been shot and wounded at the tragedy in Columbine, and wanted to know just how far O’Rourke was willing to go on gun policies. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “I understand that you want to implement a mandatory buyback for AR-15s and AK-47s. None of my classmates were murdered with those weapons, 50% of mass murders don’t happen with those weapons.” “Don’t you think it’s time to get rid of all semi-auto firearms?” Todd asked. O’Rourke, who at one point said that if he was elected that he would be removing firearms from people’s “homes,” responded by saying that he wanted input from Todd about what types of weapons he thinks should be banned. Several minutes later, after the event ended and O’Rourke moved inside to answer questions from reporters, a reporter asked O’Rourke if he would be open to adding “additional classes” of firearms to his ban and confiscation plan. “Yeah, I want to listen to him,” O’Rourke responded. “If there’s a way to improve what we have proposed, I want to make sure that we are reflecting that.”…
