TSA’s Absentee Rate Hits Double Digits as Dems Refuse DACA Compromise

Then came the predictable, disillusioned drivel that we’ve come to expect from the TSA.

Published

TSA

As our nation’s federal government remains in a partial shutdown, now entering day thirty-one, we are beginning to fully feel the effects of the nonsense here on the ground level.

One the most obvious and annoying pieces of blowback from this democratic stubbornness has been the mass failures at the Transportation Security Administration.

Sure, the TSA is used to being the unwanted stepchild of the government security community, and with good reason:  Not only have they yet to catch an actual terrorist, their invasive molestation of the American public, in public, has been giving We The People a feeling of imprisonment since the early 2000’s.

Now that these agents are being asked to work without pay, the entire organization looks to be on the verge of collapse.

The Transportation Security Administration said one in 10 of its employees scheduled to work Sunday took the day off, with many employees citing “financial limitations” preventing them from working.

“Yesterday’s complete figures show that TSA experienced a national rate of 10 percent of unscheduled absences compared to a 3.1 percent rate one year ago on the same day, Jan. 20, 2018,” the TSA said in a statement Monday. “Many employees are reporting that they are not able to report to work due to financial limitations.”
As CNN previously reported, TSA screeners have called out from work through the shutdown, and the problem has taken on heightened attention as the shutdown has worn on and unscheduled absences have ticked up significantly relative to last year.
The TSA statement in the fifth week of the longest government shutdown on record underscored the particular impact the funding impasse has had on the nation’s airports and the employees handling security screenings without pay.
Then came the predictable, disillusioned drivel that we’ve come to expect from the TSA:
The statement said that despite the high rate of unscheduled absences, wait times were “within normal TSA times” of 30 minutes in standard lanes and 10 minutes for TSA PreCheck flyers. The statement acknowledged that “some airports experienced longer than usual wait times.”
With the NFL’s Super Bowl taking place in Atlanta, Georgia in a few weeks, all eyes will be on Hartsfield-Jackson – the world busiest airport – and how it handles the influx of passengers coming to The Peach State for the big game.

WATCH: Biden Tells Crowd That Trump’s Strong Economy Is All Because of Obama – & HIM

Joe’s doing stand-up comedy, now?

Joe Biden is quite the card, even after all these years. Where he finds the marbles to tell a crowd of rallygoers that he and Barack Obama are responsible for the current thriving economy is anyone’s guess, but when you’re talking to the politically uninformed anything goes. Check this out… WATCH: Joe Biden: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy… Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1130179564351741952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Pitiful, Joe. Just pitiful. Late Senator John McCain (AZ) is a war hero who served his country with honor for the vast majority of his life. By refusing to leave his fellow soldiers behind during the Vietnam war and enduring endless amounts of torture, McCain put his true character on display. While it is evident that McCain swung violently left on certain issues (even refusing to repeal Obamacare shortly after Donald Trump became president), every American owes him a debt of gratitude. Let’s be honest: Trump was entirely wrong when he said of McCain in 2015, “I like people who weren’t captured.” That was pretty bad. McCain and Trump never saw eye-to-eye, prompting the senator’s outspoken daughter, Meghan, to constantly attack POTUS in defense of her father. Now, it looks like the McCain family will support former Biden over Trump come 2020. From Washington Examiner: The late Sen. John McCain’s family plans to support former Vice President Joe Biden’s White House bid, backing the Democrat not only in his party’s crowded primary race but also in a general election matchup with President Trump, the Washington Examiner has learned. In an extraordinary snub to Trump, who derided McCain’s Vietnam War service and mocked him…

WATCH: Bernie Proves He Doesn’t Have A Clue, Compares Teacher Salaries to Baseball Contracts

IS THIS REAL LIFE? It can’t be…

Okay, even for radically far-left Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders this one is a doozy. According to the 2020 presidential candidate, teachers can be paid as much as Major League Baseball players. Or something like that. Check this out… Self-confessed socialist candidate for president, Bernie Sanders, recently ripped pro-baseball because its players make more than teachers. But to many Americans, it looks like Bernie lacks any understanding about the economics of the matter. He tweeted: If we are a nation that can pay baseball players hundreds of millions of dollars, don’t tell me we can’t afford to pay teachers the salaries they deserve. https://twitter.com/BernieSanders/status/1129791583220588546?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129791583220588546&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F Just in case you don’t see the problem here, check out these reactions: Did I miss something or has the government started paying the baseball players, or is it still private entities? He is as dumb as his minions who are not bright enough to think for themselves. https://twitter.com/KevinKlynch41/status/1129949064265703425?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129949064265703425&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F As someone that covers sports business, let me say that Bernie is woefully off here on why the difference. As sad a commentary as this is, baseball is entertainment. It’s why there are multi-billion TV deals and 70M+ attend games in person. I thought Bernie understood economics. https://twitter.com/BizballMaury/status/1129840709320626176?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129840709320626176&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F There are 750 Major League Baseball players. In the world. 70 million fans voluntarily paid to watch MLB players perform in 2018. This is an apples and asteroids argument. https://twitter.com/RyanSchuiling/status/1129968264879017985?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129968264879017985&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F I think teachers should be paid more, but you do understand players are only paid well because people are paying to go see them… right? I’m not gonna drop $80 to go see a 3rd grade teacher for 3hrs. https://twitter.com/FauxDucky/status/1130139959346782208?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130139959346782208&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F Baseball players are paid in the private sector, teachers are predominantly government employees. Perhaps we should privatize education and make it competitive so there is demand for exceptional teachers and…
