On Monday morning at 6:00 am somebody at JFK was asleep at the wheel. No less than eleven people sauntered through the metal detectors with no one manning the post. It was a veritable free-for-all and of the eleven, three people going through set off the alarm with no result. Scary, eh?
To compound their stupidity, instead of reporting their error, the TSA waited two hours before informing authorities. Obviously they wanted to cover up their mistake and no doubt ran like chickens without a head through the airport trying to dig up those dudes. Alas, they found no one and all eleven people were long gone on their flights by the time the stuff hit the fan.
This of course brought to you by the same people who take away your hairspray, half filled bottle of water, check under your kippah to make sure there are no bombs etc. Here’s the deal and has been this way for years: Unless the TSA starts hiring people with more brains than a squirrel, these incidents are going to continue. Why they refuse to take lessons from the Israelis who have this down to a science is anyone’s guess. Maybe Trump will change that. One can only hope.
Trump’s handlers are not doing their job. Either they are just too slow for him or need to give him crib notes. His error when he spoke about Sweden was unnecessary and had he got the information right, would have been very powerful.
A recent five day period in Sweden saw five rapes, three assaults, a pair of extortions, blackmail, an attempted murder, violence against police and a robbery. The suspects were all from Muslim-majority countries – Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia and Turkey. Last month, the police chief for the southern Swedish city of Malmo issued a desperate plea for help in combating a slew of attempted murders, beatings and rapes. About 32 percent of Malmo’s occupants are migrants.
Sweden agreed to take in a few hundred thousand refugees from Syria. Their population is about 10 million people. Contrast this to Canada who agreed to take in 25,000 refugees with a population of about 35 million people. While we are not mathematicians, it appears that Sweden bit off a tad than they could chew.
Back to Trump. Had he had his facts straight, it would have helped his new immigration policy, which has been re-written exempting green card holders and permanent residents from the seven countries listed. While Trump’s insiders definitely have more brains than squirrels, they need to figure out how to deal with their boss.
Nordstrom cancelled Ivanka Trump’s clothing line and her perfume has completely sold out on amazon.com.
The National Organization for Women, one of the more rabid ‘women’s movements’, tried to publicly shun of Wegman’s, a smallish grocery store chain in the US that carries Trump-branded wines. It is just one of their many boycotts nationwide. This one however, failed spectacularly.
“Nine of its Virginia stores had sold out of the Trump-branded wine despite efforts to boycott the product and Wegmans for selling it.” Trump supporters are starting to push back.
Yesterday was President’s day in the US. Those hoping to change history had their own holiday called Not My President’s Day. Few showed up for their protests.
Unless these people are planning a coup d’état which is a violent overthrow of a government or they think that another election will be called in less than four years, we have a tip for them: Find yourself a leader. Right now you don’t have one except for George Soros and he’s not running for anything. The Democrat party is in total disarray and they can’t seem to figure out a way out of their mess. Too many egos and agendas. Score one for the Trump team.
Good Morning America. Justin Trudeau finally woke up and realized that when a woman in Quebec asked a question in English and he responded in French, he made a mistake. No s… sherlock.
“Canada is a bilingual country, and as such, I recognize that I should have answered questions in the language they were asked, be it in Quebec or anywhere else in Canada.”
He went on to say the following: “…let me be clear that my personal commitment and love for our two official languages is unequivocal.”
Blanche, go git the big barf bag. This sappy, syrupy drivel is as sappy and full of it as he is. He loves our two official languages? GIVE US A BREAK. How about this: I respect and admire that Canada has two official languages and it makes our country a better place to live for everyone.
Unfortunately, it’s all about Justin and has nothing to do with the woman who asked the question, the two official languages, his personal commitment or his love of languages. He looked like a fool and it took him a couple of months to muster the kahoonas to say he made a mistake. Too little too late.
Trump best get his act together regarding the recent wave of bomb threats to Jewish community centres across the United States. He doesn’t seem to want to address the issue so his daughter did it for him yesterday when she tweeted: America is a nation built on the principle of religious tolerance. We must protect our houses of worship & religious centers. #JCC
It kind of makes no sense that he is not dealing with this as he is pro Israel and a good friend of the Jewish people. His pretty nasty attack on observant journalist Jake Turx from Ami Magazine, was uncalled for at last week’s press conference. Yes Turx first gave an editorial which was a dumb thing to do because he never got to the question. Trump doesn’t need to hear other people’s opinions of him, good or bad.
It was his first press conference and he wanted questions. Period end of story. The faster people figure him out, the better off they will be. For sure Turx knows for next time.
