TSA agents told to "save yourself" in airport checkpoint shooting

TSA lines
Alan Jones of The Washington Times reports that a whistleblower in the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) warns that TSA checkpoint screeners are receiving training to prepare them for the possibility of a mass shooting at some airport checkpoint, and that the screeners are instructed to “save themselves” should a shooting occur.
Since TSA agents are unarmed, we don’t know what “saving themselves” would actually mean.
The unnamed whistleblower is a TSA screener who claims to have recently undergone such training, during which TSA personnel were confronted with a chilling checkpoint shooting scenario. The whistleblower is now fearful for his life. Along with the lives of other unarmed TSA personnel, his life would be in grave danger were an airport checkpoint shooting to unfold. He said: “Every day when I arrive for work, I look for an escape route in case someone opens fire. We have been told to save ourselves.”
TSA is an agency within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). In addition to the 1.6 billion bullets, mostly jacketed hollow points, which the DHS had purchased, Examiner.com reports, Jan. 28, 2013, that DHS just put in a bid to purchase 7,000 assault weapons — select fire or automatic AR-15 rifles.

Like Congress and other government officials and agencies, DHS is exempted from Sen. Feinstein’s “assault weapons” ban bill.
In his Washington Times article, Jones also makes mention of something I had not known: The “underwear bomber” incident on Christmas Day 2009 may have been a “false flag” event by the Obama regime’s Homeland Security.
There are eyewitness reports, including one by Michigan attorney Kurt Haskell, a 2012 Democratic Congressional candidate who lost to incumbent Tim Walberg (R-MI), that DHS knew that “underwear bomber” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian, was a threat to air safety. Despite that, Abdulmutallab was seen being assisted by “a well-dressed man” who helped the Nigerian terrorist board Northwest Airlines flight 253 without a passport.
Read the rest of Jones’ Washington Times article here.
I don’t know what this reported TSA training means: Is DHS sounding a warning to its TSA agents, knowing that there will be a “false flag” mass shooting incident at some airport? Or is the DHS merely being precautionary?
One thing for sure is that being unarmed, passengers waiting in long lines to go through TSA screening in congested airports are “sitting ducks” if a shooting were to occur.

National Guard ask police for names of gunowners and military vets

Two days ago, I received a very troubling phone call from a trusted friend. The friend does not want his name and that of his state to be made public. I will call my friend X and his state Y.

Here is what X told me:

Last Saturday, August 4, 2012, X got a phone call from a good friend, Z, who is a cop in a small town in Y.
Z said that both he and a cop in another neighboring town were paid a visit by two men, driving in separate unmarked Humvees, who identified themselves as members of the National Guard.
The two National Guardsmen (NGs) said they were “doing a survey” and asked the cops for those residents of their respective towns who:

  • own lots of firearms;
  • are long-distance shooters;
  • are military veterans.

The cops told the NGs that, it being a Saturday, they should come back on Monday when the police chiefs are at the stations. But the NGs said they are asking precisely the rank-and-file police officers; in other words, the NGs’ intent was to bypass the brass, i.e., the chain of command.
After the two NGs left, cop Z followed their vehicles and saw the NGs drive around town, making GPS readings.
Cop Z told my friend X that:

  • The National Guard is working under the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS).
  • Obama and Eric Holder, known for their antipathy toward the Second Amendment and private gun ownership, found a legal loophole that allows the federal government to ask the questions the two NGs had asked the cops. And so Obama issued a presidential directive empowering such agencies as the FBI, U.S. Marshalls, BATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms), and the National Guard to gather this information to compile a data base.

So I went looking on the web. This is what I found:

  1. I found NOTHING about the National Guard going around asking cops for information on owners of firearms and military vets, in Y or any other state.
  2. The U.S. National Guard is considered to be a reserve military force and, as such, is under the Dept. of Defense, not Homeland Security. The agencies that are under DHS are Customs and Border Protection, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Transportation Security Administration (TSA), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Secret Service, and the Office of Inspector General. (See DHS’s organizational chart).
  3. I cannot find a presidential directive that specifically orders federal agencies like the National Guard to conduct a firearms survey by asking cops in towns across America. But that is not to say that such a presidential directive doesn’t exist. Here’s why:
    I discovered and opened a can of worms about which I’d never even known until now. The “can of worms” is something called Presidential Directives. This is what Wikipedia says:

Presidential Directives … are a form of an executive order issued by the President of the United States with the advice and consent of the National Security Council. The directives articulate the executive’s national security policy and carry the “full force and effect of law”.

Since many of the Presidential Directives pertain to the national security of the United States, many were or are secret (“classified“).

Presidents have issued such directives under various names.
Under President George W. Bush (2001-2009), they were called National Security Presidential Directives (NSPD) and Homeland Security Presidential Directives.
Under Barack Obama (2009- ), they are called NSPD, Presidential Study Directives (to initiate policy review procedures), and Presidential Policy Directives (to promulgate Presidential decisions on national security matters).
Regarding the secrecy of presidential directives, Steven Aftergood of the Federation of American Scientists’ Project on Government Secrecy stated in February 2008 that:
“Of the 54 National Security Presidential Directives issued by the (George W.) Bush Administration to date, the titles of only about half have been publicly identified. There is descriptive material or actual text in the public domain for only about a third. In other words, there are dozens of undisclosed Presidential directives that define U.S. national security policy and task government agencies, but whose substance is unknown either to the public or, as a rule, to Congress.”
For the list of known Homeland Security Presidential Directives of George W. Bush, click here.

As for Obama’s Presidential Policy Directives (PPD), you can see from the table below that:

  • The titles of most of his Directives are unknown.
  • Of those Directives with titles, the contents (texts) of only 4 Directives (Nos. 1, 2, 8, 14) are made public.
  • The list of Obama’s Presidential Policy Directives hasn’t been updated since February 28, 2012, which means there must be more subsequent Directives for which we don’t even have a number!

PPD 1 Organization of the National Security Council System 02/13/09

PPD 10
PPD 11
PPD 12
PPD 13
PPD 14 Procedures Implementing Section 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Fact Sheet) 02/28/12

To conclude, given:

  • The known fact that the POS in the White House and his attorney general Eric Holder want nothing more than to limit private gun ownership;
  • The fact that Presidential Directives carry “the full force and effect of law,” but are so secretive that the substance of many of these Directives is unknown to, not just the American people, but “as a rule” to Congress as well;

Then I see no reason to doubt the account of the two cops of a visit by two mysterious National Guardsmen.
We live in perilous times. The Establishment Media are not doing their job, so it is left to the alternative New Media. Our weapon is truth. Please help this post to go viral by publishing this to your Facebook page and e-mailing it to your family, friends, and acquaintances.

Why does the USDA need 300,000 rounds of ammo?

In March 2010 came news that the Department of Education had ordered 27 Remington 870 shot guns to augment its existing inventory of shot guns and certified armor.
Two years later, in March 2012, came news that the Department of Homeland Security, a federal government agency that’s largely focused on domestic operations, recently ordered 450 million rounds of hollow point ammunition, and has another bid out for 175 million rounds of . 223 rifle ammo. (All this is on top of the 2 million rounds ordered in 2009). The DHS is refusing to answer requests for an explanation.
Now, the IntelHub reports, April 4, 2012, that Homeland Security is not the only domestic government agency that has bought a large amount of ammunition in the last 7 months.

According to a post published on the now infamous Fbo.gov website, the US Forest Service (USDA) solicited and secured a bid for over 300,000 rounds of ammunition, including:
  1. 40 caliber, 180 grain, 120,000 rounds or equivalent.
  2. 9 mm, 124 grain, 50,000 rounds or equivalent.
  3. .38 caliber, 135 grain, 10,000 rounds or equivalent.
  4. .380 caliber, 90 grain, 6,000 rounds or equivalent.
  5. .223 caliber, 64 grain, 87,500 rounds or equivalent.
  6. 12 gauge 00 buck, 15,000 rounds or equivalent.
  7. 40 caliber frangible, 10,000 rounds or equivalent.
  8. 9 caliber frangible, 10,000 rounds or equivalent.
  9. .223 caliber frangible, 10,000 rounds or equivalent.
  10. 12-gauge 1 oz slug, 7,500 rounds or equivalent.

The ammunition are to be delivered to Albuquerque, NM.

Should we be alarmed by this, as we were alarmed by the Department of Education’s shot guns and Homeland Security’s millions of rounds of ammunition?
I looked up the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) on Wikipedia.
The USFS is an agency within the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The USFS administers America’s 193 million acres of 155 national forests and 20 national grasslands. Major divisions of the agency include the National Forest System, State and Private Forestry, Research and Development, and Law Enforcement and Investigations.
The USFS’s Law Enforcement & Investigations unit (LEI), headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a federal law enforcement agency of the U.S. government. It is responsible for enforcement of federal laws and regulations governing national forest lands and resources. LEI’s operations are divided into two major functional areas:

  1. Law Enforcement: uniformed high visibility enforcement of laws and
  2. Investigations: special agents who investigate crimes against property, visitors and employees.

Given the Law Enforcement and Investigations unit, the USFS’s purchase of 300,000 rounds of ammunition does not seem unreasonable. What do you think?

Georgia Employer Says It with Signs

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJBVrHB0AdQ]
Looman did receive some unexpected attention not long after he put up his signs and Facebook photos. He said someone, and he thinks he knows who it was, reported him to the FBI as a threat to national security. He said the accusation filtered its way through the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and finally the Secret Service. Agents interviewed him.
“The Secret Service left here, they were in a good mood and laughing,” Looman said. “I got the feeling they thought it was kind of ridiculous, and a waste of their time.”  Full Story   ~LTG

Federal Govt's E-Verify Shows Obama's Social Security No. is Fraudulent

You’ve read here about Obama having multiple Social Security (SS) numbers and that the one he’s currently using is a Connecticut-issued number (042-68-4425) — a state in which Obama had never lived and with which he has no association. Then it was discovered that the SS number 042-68-4425 belonged to a man who had died in 1981. Then another investigator found that the SS number isn’t even in the Social Security Administration’s files and is listed as “doesn’t exist.”
Now there’s more evidence that the President of the United States is using a fraudulent SS number.
A concerned U.S. citizen ran Skippy’s SS number through E-Verify — and it flunked.

E-Verify is an Internet-based, free program run by the federal government which verifies whether or not prospective employees have the required authorization to work legally in the United States. The electronic program compares information from an employee’s Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 to data from government records. If the information matches, that employee is eligible to work in the United States. If there’s a mismatch, E-Verify alerts the employer and the employee is allowed to work while he or she resolves the problem; they must contact the appropriate agency to resolve the mismatch within eight federal government work days from the referral date. The program is operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in partnership with Social Security Administration.
Jerome Corsi reports for WorldNetDaily (WND), Sept. 12, 2011, that WND has obtained a copy of an affidavit from Linda Jordan, a private citizen who entered Obama’s Social Security Number into the “Self Check” section of the E-Verify website, only to find out that Obama’s Social Security Number was flagged by E-Verify as likely being fraudulent.
Jordan is a wife, mother and homemaker. A self-described “an average citizen with reasonable research skills,” Jordan was frustrated by Congress not being willing to investigate issues concerning Obama’s identity, including whether or not he currently is using a fraudulent Social Security Number, and by federal law enforcement authorities also doing nothing.
She states in a signed affidavit:

“Between October 2008 and May 2011, I submitted several requests to agencies and people with the legal responsibility and authority to investigate the use of forged documents and election fraud, concerning Obama’s birth records and Social Security Number. To date no one with the legal responsibility and authority has responded to any of these requests.

I did my own research and I found allegations that Obama was using a fraudulent Social Security Number and that his birth certificate had been forged were more than credible. Then I saw many brave people putting their reputations on the line to get the truth concerning Obama, including military officers like Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, and I decided I could no longer just sit back and watch. I considered myself to be one of the employers of the president of the United States, so I decided to sign up for E-Verify and see if I could determine whether or not I could find out something about his true identity.”

After Jordan entered Obama’s Social Security Number into the E-Verify Self Check, the system indicated Obama’s Social Security Number produced a mismatch that warranted a visit to the Social Security Administration to investigate the discrepancy.
According to an audit report authored by the Office of the Inspector General,Social Security Administration, titled “Effectiveness of Special Indicator Codes on the Social Security Administrations Numident File,” dated August 2008, there are 9 special indicator codes as of November 2008:

  1. False Identity
  2. Noncitizen Not in Status
  3. Multiple SSNs with Different Identities
  4. Scrambled Earnings with New SSN Assigned
  5. SSN Obtained Using Fraudulent Documentation
  6. SSN Assignment Based on Harassment/Abuse/Life Endangerment
  7. Fictitious Identity
  8. Fraud – OIG Investigated
  9. Fraud SSN Misuse

8 of the Special Indicators have to do with fraud of some kind. WND’s phone call to the media office of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security went unanswered.
A big h/t to beloved fellow Tina.In the meantime, there’s silence from the mainstream media, Congress, the courts, the Democratic and Republican Party leaders, law enforcement officials from across the United States — including that supposedly fearless Arizona’s Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio who has promised he’d look into the matter.
Here’s the contact info on Sheriff Arpaio:

100 West Washington
Suite 1900
Phoenix, AZ 85003

Arpaio’s phone no.: (602) 876-1801

I can’t find an e-mail address for Arpaio, but here’s the contact form for the Sheriff’s Office.

This is the message I sent the sheriff (feel free to use it as yours!):

Dear Sheriff Arpaio:

You have a reputation for being fearless and a righteous enforcer of the law. About a month ago, you promised a Tea Party delegation that you’d look into Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be on the state of Arizona’s ballot for the 2012 presidential election.

Due to the indifference and inaction of due authorities, a private citizen, Linda Jordan, took it upon herself to verify Obama’s current Social Security number — that curious number 042-68-4425 with a Connecticut 3-digit prefix — with the federal government’s E-Verify electronic system. The result is that when she entered Obama’s Social Security Number into the “Self Check” section of the E-Verify website, she found that Obama’s Social Security Number was flagged by E-Verify as likely being fraudulent.

Here’s the WND article on this: https://www.wnd.com/?pageId=344461#ixzz1XrKONaEl:

Mr. Arpaio, what more evidence do you need? You can double-check Ms. Jordan’s information for yourself by entering Obama’s SS number into the E-Verify system.

What are you afraid of?

Respectfully,

_________

Obama Ends 9/11 National Security Registration for Muslim Male Immigrants

Once again, the Obama administration bows to Political Correctness, at the expense of national security and plain common sense.

Niraj Warikoo reports for the Detroit Free Press, May 16, 2011:

The U.S. government has ended a controversial counterterrorism program created in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that required men living in the U.S. who came from mostly Muslim countries to register with federal authorities.

Called NSEERS — National Security Entry-Exit Registration System — the program required registration, interviews and fingerprinting of male visitors 16 and older from Muslim nations as well as North Korea.

The program targeted men entering the country as well as more than 80,000 men already in the U.S., about 1,000 of them from metro Detroit. Nearly 13,800 residents were further investigated, and 2,870 were later deported.

But not a single case resulted in anyone being charged with terrorism — a fact that experts say proves the program was a failure that unfairly harassed thousands.

NSEERS did “not catch terrorists,” said Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia, a law professor at Penn State University who has extensively researched the program. “It was ineffective and alienating.”

The Department of Homeland Security quietly ended the program through a notice buried on its Web site on April 28.

H/t beloved fellow Tina.

Insanity! TSA Agents Pat Down Baby

Does anyone still think that Janet Napolitano and the TSA (Transport Security Agency, part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security) are actually concerned about catching terrorists?
Last night, Fellowship of the Minds’ wonderful writer DCG wrote a post, “Doesn’t This Make You Feel Safe,” about a photo that’s making the rounds on the Internet. I can now confirm that the pic is real.

TSA agents grope baby held by mom.


TSA agents pedophiles at Kansas City International Airport were laughing as they pat down a baby, focusing their attention on the lower half of the infant’s body.
As reported by Paul Bentley of the Daily Mail, May 10, 2011, TSA agents insisted on frisking the baby after his stroller beeped when it went through security.
A fellow passenger Jacob Jester took the pic as proof of what he thought was an ‘extreme’ measure. Jester uploaded the photograph onto Twitter and wrote: “Just saw #tsa agents patting down a little baby at @KCIAirport. Pretty sure that’s extreme.”
