TSA screenings fail to spot weapons
most of the time, agency says

CBS News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/10/2017 7:51:48 PM

An undercover operation has revealed that Transportation Security Administration screenings at airports fail for the most part. Homeland Security investigators found that, more than 70 percent of the time, undercover officers were able to get through TSA checkpoints with mock knives, guns and explosives, the House Homeland Security Committee was told Wednesday. Just two years ago, testing found a 95 percent failure rate, reports CBS News correspondent Kris Van Cleave. "We found that briefing disturbing," said Michael McCaul, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee. The DHS Office of Inspector General made eight classified recommendations based on the undercover operation.

Comments:
Their incompetence and failures continue on. One of the worst things GW Bush did, among many, was create that worthless leviathan the DHS. It´s beyond irritating that McCaul found it ´very disturbing.´ Isn´t that what they say every time this happens and NOTHING is done? The TSA should be privatized. They never should have been allowed to join a union.

They managed to find a bottle opener in my wallet, then get all nasty when I didn´t want to give it to them. One looked like Shaggy from Scooby Doo. I felt safe.

They pulled out my hemorrhoid pads the other day and swabbed them for explosives. Right on top of that problem!

After 9-11 Sen. McCain asserted the cause was incompetence on the part of the contract security firms hired by airlines to man the security posts. McPain demanded the TSA be formed, creating yet ONE MORE "police force" in the Federal registry with pension funds and benefits... and now Unionized workers. Today we see they´re close to WORTHLESS as security guardians. We´d be better off with mall cops watching who carries what on the plane.

In how many universities, apart from Harvard, is 20% a passing grade?

SWouth Park did a really funny parody of TSA by having a woman fall into the toilet because the boys in her household forgot to put the seat down. She died during the rescue attempt, bent in a jackknife position. And they put her into her casket in that position. (My written description doesn´t sound funny, but trust me, the episode was.)
The solution for the toilet seat problem? a federal department of Toilet Seat Safety, with a requirement that toilet seat belts had to be used, but also a person heading for the toilet had to undergo a body search by TSS agents. "Just show me your azz, sir."

Those numbers sound like standard failure rates for any government-run program. The only thing that can be done to fix the TSA is to privatize. Most errors can be corrected but one terrorist getting lucky one time...

I saw the hand writing on the wall when the TSA was created and haven´t been on a plane since and never will again. Let the goobermint intrude anywhere and it´s always a feel good exercise with no safety to be found anywhere, just another waste of taxpayer money.

NFL steps into politics, fights tax cut
bill with no stadium bond breaks
Washington Times, by Jeff Mordock    Original Article

The NFL has come out against House Republicans’ tax cut bill, putting the league out on a political limb even as it deals with the fallout from national anthem protests. Other big pro sports leagues are staying out of the fight, but a spokesman for the National Football League said teams don’t want to lose a special tax break that allows them to use tax-free bonds to build stadiums. The NFL says it deserves the break because new stadiums create jobs. “You can look around the country and see the economic development that’s generated from some of these stadiums,” Joe Lockhart, a former

Al Franken Should Resign Immediately

On Thursday morning, Los Angeles radio host Leeann Tweeden wrote a disturbing article alleging that Sen. Al Franken sexually harassed her on a 2006 USO tour. According to Tweeden, Franken coerced her into “rehearsing” a kiss for a skit, then forcefully stuck his tongue in her mouth. She also provided a photograph of Franken appearing to grope her while she slept. There is no rational reason to doubt the truth of Tweeden’s accusations, no legitimate defense of Franken’s actions, and no ambiguity here at all: Franken should resign from the Senate immediately. Democrats should call for him to step down

One of the Clinton family’s most aggressive defenders lashed out overnight at a Democratic senator who said Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency over his affair with Monica Lewinsky. “Ken Starr spent $70 million on a consensual b***job. Senate voted to keep POTUS WJC. But not enough for you @SenGillibrand? Over 20 yrs you took the Clintons’ endorsements, money, and seat. Hypocrite,” former Hillary Clinton adviser Philippe Reines tweeted late Thursday, at Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.

As the breaking story of Al Franken‘s lewd behavior toward Leeann Tweeden during a USO tour in 2006 was developing Thursday, MSNBC’s Capitol Hill Correspondent Kasie Hunt reported to viewers that Franken was “not actually groping” Tweeden in the famous photo that shook the political and media landscape. (Snip) Not only is this “reporting” inaccurate, Hunt seems to present a political argument that even Franken is not making in his own defense. “Potentially — not actually groping, but mock-groping” is how Hunt, the reporter delivered the news.

Privately funded by Steve Green, the evangelical owner of the arts and crafts retail chain of Hobby Lobby, the $500 million museum will feature a huge array of artifacts both from Green’s private collection and from traveling exhibits from around the world. The museum, which its website says aims to engage visitors with the history, narrative, and impact of the Bible, is opening amid some controversy after Green settled a $3 million case involving smuggling artifacts earlier this year.

A new book out by Guardian journalist Luke Harding provides previously unknown details about the Trump dossier and its author, former British spy Christopher Steele. (Snip) Harding reported that he was contacted by a member of the Clinton campaign who laid out allegations that Trump had used prostitutes in Moscow. Steele’s June 20, 2016 dossier memo makes similar unverified claims. The outreach establishes for the first time that someone on the Clinton campaign attempted to peddle unfounded rumors about Trump to the press. Harding did not identify the campaign official.

Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be “such an abuse of power” by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told attendees at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday that if Judge Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate race in December, he will face a Senate ethics committee investigation. McConnell argued, “I think it’s safe to say that if he were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee. He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath as well, and it would be a rather unusual beginning.” The Washington Post released an article last week that alleged that Moore engaged in sexual

The allegations by five women that Roy Moore pursued and sexually molested teenage girls while he was in his 30s are disgusting, and disqualify him to serve in the United States Senate. Conservatives should be outraged at Moore for his loathsome conduct. But they should also be outraged at the man who helped put Moore on the ballot and is in the process of destroying the Trump presidency: Stephen K. Bannon. If the man Trump supported in the primary, Sen. Luther Strange, were the Republican nominee today, the GOP would be cruising to an easy victory in the Dec. 12 special

The woman, now 55, spoke exclusively with CNN and said she was attending a fundraiser for Bush´s re-election campaign in Dearborn, Michigan, with her father when the president grabbed her rear end during a photo-op.
