Airport Security?

No country has better airport security than Israel and no country needs it more since Israel is the most hated target of Islamic extremists terrorists (which DHS Chief Big Sista, Janet Napolitano calls, “Man Caused Disasters”) yet somehow, Israeli airport security people don’t have to strip search passengers, naked electronically or have a stranger groping their private parts.

Does anyone really believe that we have better airport security than Israel? Is our security record better than theirs?

“Security” may be the excuse being offered for the outrageous things being done to American travelers but the heavy-handed arrogance  and contempt for ordinary people, that is the hallmark of this administration in other areas is all to painfully apparent in these new and invasive airport procedures.

Can you remember a time  when a Cabinet member in a free America boasted having “his foot on the neck” of some business or when a President of the United States threatened on television to put his foot on another part of some citizens anatomy?

Yet this and more has happened in the current administration which is not yet two years old. One Cabinet member warned there would be “zero tolerance” for misinformation, when an insurance  company said the obvious, that the mandates of ObamaCare would raise costs and therefore raise premiums. Zero Tolerance, for exercising the First Amendment Right of Free Speech.

More than two centuries ago, Edmund Burke warned about the dangers of new people with new power. This administration, only halfway through its term, has demonstrated that in many ways.

What other Administration has had an Attorney General call the American people “cowards” and refuse to call terrorists Islamic? What other Administration has had  a Secretary of Homeland Security warn law enforcement officials across the country of security threats from people who are anti-abortion, for federalism or our returning veterans?

FDA: Airline Food Fails To Meet Health Standards

At one time it was said, the most dangerous part of anyones trip is driving to the airport.

This may have all changed?

Food and Drug Administration: Food preparation at some of the nations largest air carriers are a recipe for disaster. Violations include roaches, mice, unsanitary conditions and no place for food service workers to wash their hands.

TSA Screener Plants Bag of White Powder on Passenger as a Joke

If air travel wasn’t challenging enough already—TSA Screener in Philadelphia plants bag of white powder on a passenger flying to Detroit aboard Northwest Airlines as a joke.

Full Body Imaging Scanners Will Not Fix Airline Security Problems

Full body imaging scanners are not new, they have been installed and have been operating in airports across the country for some time. In April, 2008 I wrote here that XXX Airport Body Scanners were in use at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and were currently being tested in Los Angeles and NY JFK Airport. On the 18 February I wrote here that TSA XXX full body scanners have been installed in Tulsa.

The federal government “claims” that the images can not be  stored, printed or transmitted and no one other than TSA  personnel will view them—Riiight

Would these high tech gadgets have prevented the Al-Qaeda Terrorist Thug from boarding Northwest Airlines #253 and attempting to blow himself up on Christmas Day?

Dutch Police are investigating why Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab was even permitted to board the Detroit bound flight. Kurt and Lori Haskell Attorneys from Newport, MI and passengers aboard Northwest Airlines #253 witnessed the Islamic Terrorist Thug attempting to board the airplane in Amsterdam without a passport.

Since taking office Barack Obama has failed to take the War on Islamic Terrorism seriously but instead his Administration has claimed that Terrorism or Terrorist Threats were the old “politics of fear” and began using the PC phrase “Man Caused Disaster” to describe Islamic Terrorist Thugs determined to kill Americans.

The amateurishness of DHS Chief Janet Napolitano was very evident on Sunday when she claimed “The system worked” and that there was no indication that the Islamic Terrorist Thug on Northwest Airlines #253 with 278 passengers and 11 crew members was part of any larger terrorist plot.

Before Christmas the Obama Administration knew that a branch of Al-Qaeda in Yeman were talking about a “Nigerian” being prepared for a terrorist attack.

On Monday I wrote here that Scotland Yard fears that there may be at least 25 more Islamic Jihad Terrorist Thugs ready to commit martyrdom on USA airliners.

The Obama Administration has been in pre 9/11 mode since taking office. We now know that Napolitano lied and that the United States had the intelligence which they should have pieced together, that would have prevented the Islamic Jihadist Thug, attempted terrorist attack on the Detroit bound flight but they failed to act.

The Obama Administration incompetence which described Christmas Day’s attempted Islamic Jihad Terrorist attack on Northwest Airline #253 as a near miss, shows that this Administration does not take the War on Islamic Terrorism seriously.

While Iran continues to support Islamic Jihadists financially and prosecute its proxy war against the United States killing Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan, Barack Obama has chosen to ignore this and has conveyed messages to Iran of his willingness to negotiate with the Islamic Fascists without pre-conditions and has reiterated that Iran should have the right to access powerful nuclear power if they comply with its responsibilities under the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.

Iran has broken their promises and have not complied with any UN sanctions up until now. Why does Barack Obama believe that he may be able to convince Iran to change their ways?

The Obama Administration since taking office has weakened the United States and in September was mocked by French President Sarkozy criticizing Barack Obama at the United Nations Security Council for not living in the real world and being naive. President Obama, continues to reiterate that we must all just learn to get along and rid the world of nuclear weapons. This policy once again demonstrates Obama’s gullibility, once one possess the knowledge of how to build nuclear weapons there is no way to ban them.

Barack Obama continues to endanger the lives of Americans at home and abroad—Islamic Jihadist Terrorist Thugs are not waiting for his Administration to get its act together. Al-Qaeda is well aware of the full body imaging scanners which are being praised as a responsible tool in the next line of defense to safeguard the flying public.

In June, the House of Representatives recognizing Privacy concerns voted 310-118 prohibiting the use of full body imaging scanners for primary screening.

Al-Qaeda is well aware of the XXX full body imaging scanners, Islamic Jihadists have their own and have tested smuggling explosives through European airports, practicing ways to conceal explosives.

GAO raises questions about the effectiveness of the XXX full body imaging scanners

Its time for the Obama Administration to get serious about prosecuting the War on Islamic Terrorism instead of attempting to quell the anxiety of the traveling public into yet another false sense of security.

RyanAir—No Frills, No Doubt

Ryan Air No Frills, No Doubt!

In June, the low cost no frills UK carrier announced that its customers would have to pay to receive an air sick bag.

In February I wrote here that Ryan Air would soon maybe  add pay-as-you-go lavatories.

Now the low cost, no frills, discount carrier is considering proposals to make their passengers stand in-flight. What is next for the cheaper-than-cheap airline?
