TSA’s Massive Failures Could Cause Another 9/11, Say Experts

Now, with the Middle East back on the terror map in a big way, these blue-shirted goons are going to need to get their act together.

While the situation is ostensibly bad in Afghanistan right now, there is much more trouble to come if certain experts are to be believed.

The Middle Eastern nation transformed this week into “The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan”, after US President Joe Biden’s rapid troop withdrawal allowed the Taliban to literally oust the Afghan government over the course of a few days.  Now the terror organization is in sole possession of all of the assets of the nation-state, including it’s military equipment.

This has sparked fears of new terror attacks against the United States, (one of the Taliban’s most hated enemies).

Good thing we have the TSA to protect us…right?

When former TSA undercover agents learned that a passenger with a loaded handgun breezed past scanners at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport and boarded a flight to Tokyo in 2019, they were not surprised.

They had done the same thing on a regular basis, posing as potential terrorists with fake guns and bombs to test security — and getting waved through disturbingly often, they told The Post.

The Tokyo-bound gunslinger didn’t turn out to be a threat, they said, but agents pointed to leaked data from TSA in 2015 and 2017 showing that attempts by their “Red Team” of covert agents to smuggle in weapons, explosives and banned objects succeeded sometimes up to 95 percent of the time.

Just how bad is it?

And they said this could mean another 9/11 is possible, a warning that came as the Department of Homeland Security issued a bulletin Friday saying the 9/11 20th anniversary could spur extremist violence.

“The TSA didn’t learn from what happened before,” said former FAA Special Agent Brian Sullivan, telling The Post security failures exposed by the agency since then have opened the door to another.

“They’re making the same mistakes.”

The TSA has long been a bit of joke here in the United States, providing mere security theater and not actual security for some time.

Now, with the Middle East back on the terror map in a big way, these blue-shirted goons are going to need to get their act together.

PUTIN POKES THE BEAR: Russian Troops Move Toward Ukraine as World Warns

There may be no peaceful end to this situation.

Published

While it has long been understood that Vladimir Putin is a figure representing chaos on the world’s stage, (whether covertly or proudly), the sort of trouble that he’s stirring up this week won’t likely have a peaceful end.

Putin appears hellbent on finding a way and a reason to take Ukraine back under Russian control.  The tiny nation, rich in natural gas and other resources, is far too minuscule to put up a fight, and so it will be up to the rest of the world to deter the Kremlin.

And despite a number of unmistakable warnings, Putin appears unfazed.

Russia is a sending an unspecified number of troops from the country’s far east to Belarus for major war games, officials said Tuesday, a deployment that will further beef up Russian military presence near Ukraine amid Western fears of a planned invasion.

Amid the soaring tensions, the White House warned that Russia could attack its neighbor at “any point,” while the U.K. delivered a batch of anti-tank weapons to Ukraine.

Russia’s Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin said the joint drills with Belarus would involve practicing a joint response to external threats.

Ukrainian officials have warned that Russia could launch an attack on Ukraine from several directions, including from its ally Belarus.

As for any attempts to stop the Russian invasion?  They were squashed when a well-known Putin mouthpiece announced on television that any push to keep Putin from getting what he wants could end in the opposition being turned into “radioactive dust”.

Starbucks Bucks Biden’s Vaccine Mandate in Latest Blow to Agenda

WOW!

Published

on

Joe Biden has not been having the smoothest first year in office, that’s for certain, and things are only getting a little rougher as the days go on.

Currently, one of the largest failures that the administration is dealing with comes from the constitutionality of their vaccine mandate.  Or, rather, it’s lack of constitutionality, as determined by the Supreme Court of the US.

And now, even one of the “wokest” companies in the nation can’t back the plan.

Employees at Starbucks are no longer required to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Roughly a week after the Supreme Court reversed President’s Biden workplace vaccine mandate, the coffee chain is following suit, according to The Associated Press.

“We respect the Court’s ruling and will comply,” Starbucks Chief Operating Officer John Culver wrote in a memo to employees.

Last week, the Supreme Court issued mixed rulings in a pair of cases challenging Biden administration COVID-19 vaccine mandates, allowing the requirement for certain health care workers to go into effect while blocking enforcement of a mandate for businesses with 100 or more employees.

Then came the lip service.

“I want to emphasize that we continue to believe strongly in the spirit and intent of the mandate,” Culver added. “Thank you to the more than 90 percent of partners who have already disclosed their vaccination status, and to the vast majority who are now fully vaccinated.”

With Starbucks opting out, there are no doubt other mega-corporations who will be following suit.
