Baltimore County Man Says He Was
Kicked Off Southwest Flight For Not

Baltimore–A Baltimore County man said he was kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight for not wearing a mask while eating Twizzlers and wants to share his story in the hopes things will change. Avi Mandel said he was a frequent Southwest flyer until his flight Sunday out of Thurgood Marshall Baltimore Washington International Airport. He showed WJZ a selfie video he made during the flight, in which he said, “I, Avi Mandel, just got kicked off a plane because I wasn’t wearing my mask in between bites while I was eating.”(Snip) After he emailed Southwest, he found out a new federal mask mandate


Escorted off the plane by the police for the crime of not re-masking between bites. Is he now a federal felon? Are we proud of the progress made in New America (thanks for nothing, GOP)? Meanwhile, John Kerry, our national war hero patriot, wears masks only when he feels like it, and air circulation and filtration studies commissioned by the airlines show there's no need to wear a mask on a plane.

This could also be a thing put in place to offset the numbers of brawling Africans who get tossed from airports and aircraft. "See? We hassle non-Africans too." USA 2021.

Here is the actual ludacris dictat from the Imperial Ministry of Transportation. You will be happy to know our betters have said you can drive your own car without a mask on. I will also say.... he was flying OUT of Ft Lauderdale on Southwest. THAT is the single worst ground and aircrew spot in my opinion of all of the SW fleet. They are surly, intolerant, and nasty.... every single one! I NEVER fly SW into or out of FLL. I will drive to Orlando or heck, just drive home to TN if I have no other choice. Ft Lauderdale Southwest crews are horrible!!

Southwest messed up badly. There are not as many people flying (even SW) and every story like this results in more of the same. Between the TSA tendencies to overkill and the general atmosphere of a police state in an airport, its causing so many to just get in our cars and drive! Well, too bad this gentleman was not a person of color or another category of cultural privilege. We know that because Southwest did not profusely apologize and offer refund and a future free ticket.

it wasn't the fact that he was not wearing his breathing protection apparatus, it was because Twizzlers cause COVID-19, everybody knows that.

About the only stumble in President Biden‘s aggressive move to the left during his first 100 days came when he tripped over his own feet climbing the stairs to Air Force One. A $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package, the first major test of Mr. Biden‘s domestic agenda, passed Congress without a single Republican vote. Democrats can ram through Mr. Biden‘s two-phase infrastructure and social safety-net plan, costing another $4.1 trillion, with the same narrow partisan majority. All but two of Mr. Biden‘s highly diverse Cabinet nominees have made it through the 50-50 Senate.(Snip) Republicans have complained mightily

North Korea has reportedly finished testing “suicide” drones that can spy on and then attack the Hermit Kingdom’s enemies. The new “miniaturized unmanned drones” are capable of “precision reconnaissance of areas deep within the frontline”—ending with “pincer attacks,” meaning strikes from both flanks, sources told Daily NK. Military authorities raced through testing of the drones after dictator Kim Jong Un called their development an “important task” for the country, the report said. The despot then reportedly sent a personally signed “grateful message” to the team, saying the successful tests “establishes yet another cornerstone to promote the advancement and strength of the Korean People’s Army.”

The Biden administration moved Thursday to ban menthol cigarettes and flavored cigars, fulfilling a key goal of anti-smoking groups who say the products harm minorities while sparking a debate about government overreach and the potential creation of an underground market. Health Secretary Xavier Becerra said the Food and Drug Administration’s decision to kickstart the removal will help “our most marginalized communities” and accelerate the decrease in overall tobacco use. “Tobacco-related death and disease must become a part of America’s past. These public health measures will save lives,” he said. “Banning menthol in cigarettes and flavors in cigars will decrease the appeal of these tobacco products

When U.S. Catholic bishops hold their next national meeting in June, they'll be deciding whether to send a tougher-than-ever message to President Joe Biden and other Catholic politicians: Don´t receive Communion if you persist in public advocacy of abortion rights. At issue is a document that will be prepared for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops by its Committee on Doctrine, with the aim of clarifying the church's stance on an issue that has repeatedly vexed the bishops in recent decades. It's taken on new urgency now, in the eyes of many bishops, because Biden.... is the first to hold that office while espousing clear-cut support for abortion rights.

A shortage of semiconductor chips continues to impact both automotive industry employees and those looking to buy a car.

"The microchip crisis is probably the worst crisis I’ve seen in the auto industry, at least in my career, in terms of supply chain," General Motors President Mark Reuss told Fox Business. General Motors has idled several plants across the country in the last several weeks as the lack of semiconductors meant vehicles could not be made.

Kamala Harris hasn't been looking well lately. She gave a maskless interview to CNN's Dana Bash a week ago, and she looked much more jowly and wrinkly than she did just three months ago, when she took the oath of office. She has a bit more junk in the trunk now, and gone are the purple, maroon, and ivory suits; it's black or navy all the time now, the better to hide the extra jiggly bits. A lot of her sentences now begin with "Well, I mean," signaling the intellectual vacuity she's settled for, as though she's completely given up on trying to sound smart.

Late last week Portland, Ore., Mayor Ted Wheeler took to video to plea for the community’s help to “unmask” antifa. The violence-prone anarchist-fascist group has terrorized Portland with months of violent and destructive insurrectionist riots despite Joe Biden merely calling antifa an “idea.” Someone purporting to represent antifa has responded to Wheeler with a new video. In this video, the masked individual pushes anti-American themes and publishes Wheeler’s home address. The individual finishes the disturbing presentation with a veiled threat to kill Mayor Wheeler.
