Southwest Airlines Cancels Even More Flights
as 'Issues' Worsen

As we reported earlier today, Southwest Airlines canceled hundreds of flights yesterday claiming, initially, that it was due to bad weather and that there were air traffic control issues. But their issues continued, with another 1,000 flights canceled today, as well — almost 28% of their total flights. This was the second straight day of significant issues. As we noted earlier, the claim of “weather” didn’t match what was happening in the country, and it wasn’t hitting other carriers. So, that wasn’t the real story. Fox’s Leland Vittert indicated that there was a “mass sickout” in protest of vaccine mandates. That many scrapped flights is obviously an internal problem, not weather.

My friends were to fly SW to Orlando for a birthday celebration this morning early. When the wake up alarm went off, so did a text from the airlines saying their flight was canceled. No reason given. Not only do the airlines mess with you on board, they are trying to bankrupt themselves and blame the passengers. John Kerry is a preek, of course, but maybe a private plane isn't all that bad.

They are probably discovering that you can't force pilots, flight attendants and baggage handlers to get The Shot. "Gee, boss, I really am feeling sick, probably got the flu. Can't make that flight. Probably sick tomorrow, too." Pushing harder will only make it worse, is my bet.

It sounds like there's a mass quarantine going on with the SW employees. I'm seeing more masks in my area than I've seen in a long time; When I was out shopping this weekend, I wondered if I'd missed some memo. Stores, unable to mandate masks, still have mask signs up and PSAs encouraging masks to keep one another safe. People need to let this virus run its course, and be done with it. Instead, there are too many who are willing to listen to and obey people who have sinister motives for keeping this virus alive. I stand with the Southwest Airlines protesters. Good for them.

As sorry as I feel for anyone with flight reservations right now, I am 100% behind the employees who are fighting for their right to control their own health decisions!!! Hopefully SWA management will get the message loud and clear very quickly and cancel this incredibly stupid vaccine mandate!!!!

Inconvenient yes, but a step in the direction of ground level (urff -bad pun but I'll leave it there) push-back from workers who've rejected the mandates. I've not yet been so ordered, and in my low population red state smaller employer may not have to. Lead the way So'W employees. I hope y'all are the snowball that gets things rolling.

No matter what any of us do for a living, I see employees of every stripe beginning to stand together. This is exactly what needs to happen!! BULLYING for non-scientific and unhealthy reasons is going to stop - one way or another.

I was wondering what was going in the world today, as our local "news" station presented some insipid, heartwarming story of handicapped people overcoming their challenges to enter marathon races. For some reason they didn't mention anything like this, though. Air traffic controllers, police, and nurses all over the country are quitting rather than be forced to be vaccinated. Soon there won't be anyone left to treat us, protect us, or let us go anywhere. Gee, could it all be on purpose?

I was always amazed at how the airlines could tell silly lies and expect most of the abandoned passengers to believe them while they sat wilting in the terminal. US Airways was always particularly adept at manufacturing weather delays while you stared out the window at bright sunshine and blue skies. How can anyone expect to fly somewhere now on a busy holiday and expect to enjoy a smooth trip? This Jacksonville crisis was caused entirely by vax refusal and they will tell you anything but the truth concerning their pet virus.

Flew SWA back in June from Raleigh to Oklahoma City. Originally it was a one stop flight in St. Louis. SWA changed it to a stop in Baltimore and another in Denver to get to OKC! This added about 5 hours to the trip. I won't be flying again.

Joe threatened to have OSHA issue a requirement, but there has been nothing out of OSHA. Companies are taking this action on threats of a threat. Nothing official has mandated it yet and one by one, companies are seeing a backlash from their employees.

In the wake of massive Southwest Airlines cancelations and disruptions, a whistleblower within the company reached out to PJ Media to confirm that employees, including pilots, gate agents, flight attendants, and others, are fighting back against the mandatory vaccines ordered by the federal government. “It’s a coordinated protest,” said the source, on the condition of anonymity. The employees have coordinated on social media platforms and are standing up at what they believe is a pivotal moment in America that will determine whether the country remains free or slides into despotism. “We know we can stop this,” the whistleblower said. “And if we don’t do it now, it will be too late.

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis said the new Halloween Kills movie is about the kind of mob violence that Americans witnessed on January 6 when rioters stormed the Capitol building. In a interview with filmmaker Eli Roth on the “History of Horror” podcast, Jamie Lee Curtis explained that the last two Halloween movies — Halloween in 2018 and Halloween Kills, which opens Friday — are part of a planned trilogy she is making with director David Gordon Green. Curtis said the 2018 Halloween movie reflected the themes of the #MeToo movement, including the notion of women seizing power. “[When] we were launching the 2018 movie,

The FBI arrested a married couple from Annapolis, Maryland, for selling submarine secrets to an undercover agent for almost a year. Diana and Jonathan Toebbe were charged with “conspiracy to communicate restricted data.” They are looking at spending the rest of their lives in the hoosegow. Jonathan Toebbe hid data cards in things such as chewing gum and Band-Aid wrappers, as well as a peanut butter sandwich.

A follow-up to Ed’s post this morning. There’s a lot of material on the wires today about Democrats and their sympathizers looking at Biden’s falling job approval and wondering just how much of a walloping they’re going to get in the midterms. Not whether they’re going to get one, but how much of one. What ties these various takes together is the sense that there’s just not much the party can do to avoid it. We’re still further removed from Election Day 2022 at the moment than we are from Election Day 2020, but there’s a whiff of fatalism to the commentary that once a president sinks

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has made another move against nonsensical COVID policies. Today, he signed an executive order banning vaccine mandates by any entity in the state. This would hit corporations that have begun to follow federal guidelines to mandate vaccines for all their employees. And though an official rule from OSHA has yet to materialize as threatened, Abbott’s move is in direct defiance of Joe Biden. This comes in the midst of a meltdown happening at Southwest Airlines over a coming vaccine mandate in November. Reports continue to indicate that employees of the Texas-based air carrier are using sick days in anticipation

US Senator Kyrsten Sinema wants to cut $100bn from climate programs in major legislation being pushed by the White House, a report says. The Arizona lawmaker is one of two centrist Democrats who are essential to passing a $3.5 trillion budget bill and a $1 trillion infrastructure bill, legislation which is a signature part of President Biden’s domestic agenda. Ms Sineman, who started her political career in the Green Party, is now demanding the cuts be made on climate provisions in the budget bill, according to The New York Times.

We’ve been talking about how bad the polling has been for Joe Biden, even in deep-blue states like Minnesota. How do you know when it’s getting really bad? When even CNN — usually all in to pimp for Biden — is acknowledging how underwater he is in job approval. He’s down even with Democrats, but what they say is really animating the poll is how much he has dropped with independents. As CNN’s John Berman and Harry Enten put it, the technical term is “not good.” He’s down 10 points among Democrats, 12 among Republicans, but among independents, he’s down 19 points.

President Donald Trump held a rally in Des Moines, Iowa, today. Now, like every Trump rally, you know it’s going to have a lot built into it. But this one, because of the location, has a little bit of a deeper meaning for 2024, because Iowa is the state front and center of any presidential primary run. Trump pointed to the importance of Iowa in the effort to take back the House and Senate in 2022, then the White House in 2024. The Republicans need a net gain of just one seat in the Senate and a net gain of five in the House to win back the majority. The only Democrat

Older adults without heart disease should not take daily low-dose aspirin to prevent a first heart attack or stroke, a panel of experts said on Tuesday. In new draft guidance, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (UPSTF) said that recent evidence has shown the risks of side effects far outweigh any potential benefits for seniors. This means that low-dose, or baby, aspirin should only be taken daily by patients have had a heart attack or stroke in the past or by younger adults with no bleeding risks. If finalized, the advice would backtrack on recommendations the panel issued in 2016 for helping prevent a first heart attack and stroke

The company, which dropped "moccasin" from its logo in 2008, has now removed the word from much of its corporate messaging and is calling itself simply Minnetonka. "Minnetonka deeply and meaningfully apologizes for having benefited from selling Native-inspired designs without directly honoring Native culture or communities," the company said in a statement.

The hospital appealed to the Governor’s office, Democrat Janet Mills(snip), for a testing option to avoid losing some of the most important care providers in their system. Today, the hospital quantified their issue and announced they were going to suspend pediatric admissions as well as heart attack and trauma admissions, because they just will not be able to operate.
