Real World of Crime-

“The FBI says its background-check system failed, mistakenly allowing the man who allegedly opened fire inside a South Carolina church last month to purchase the gun he used in the rampage.”

Will veterans support all presidential candidates in 2016?

American popular and political culture insists on dividing people up into groups- then assigning a separate value to each group-

Things are already starting to shape up:

Veterans for Rand Paul 2016

Veterans and Military Families for Hillary

VETERANS READY FOR HILLARY!

What about bus drivers- who do they endorse?

No school desks without ongoing, undeclared/unwon wars in distant lands:

Ditto for the TV networks that host presidential debates & ask scripted questions of candidates.

Out at the airport:

Reaction mode- almost 14 years after 911:

“Upon learning the initial findings of the Office of Inspector General’s report, Secretary Johnson immediately directed TSA to implement a series of actions, several of which are now in place, to address the issues raised in the report.”

Ferry security drill?

Mock attack offers practice to Jefferson County first responders — drill teaches ‘a lot of lessons’

“Once we had neutralized the shooter, we had to search all areas of the boat to make sure there wasn’t anymore danger,” he said.

Newspeople, please help us to make sense of mixed messages in the War on Terror. Please be in the habit of asking questions. Too often- what we see are the posting of press releases from whatever agencies are involved in local events and incidents.

Many of us have made dozens of round-trip ferry crossings over the years. It is very common to see no security at either terminal. The Washington State Patrol uses dogs to check vehicles at some ferry terminals on some days. Walk-on passengers are not checked at any terminal- at any time.

The routes I have traveled most are Edmonds/Kingston & Port Townsend/Keystone. (Coupeville/Penn Cove is on the eastern shore of Whidbey Island- no ferry link to Port Townsend exists there.)

 

Washington State Ferries encourages people to speak up if they see something that doesn’t look right:

DSC_0048 2
Questions to ask:

If the Oklahoma City bomber rolls onto the ferry- how does a SWAT team help out an hour later?

What is the point in having gunboats escorting ferries if terrorists are free to put their boat on a trailer and drive it onto the ferry?

 

June 2006-

“Ferry incident exposes security weaknesses”

Man drives through Bainbridge toll booths without paying and locks himself in his car on the ferry Tacoma.

“State Patrol troopers and their bomb-sniffing dogs, who might also have made an arrest, didn’t happen to be at the Bainbridge dock.”

“We’d like the patrol to be everywhere, all the time, but they don’t have the staff or the money,” said ferry spokeswoman Susan Harris-Huether. “If they’d have been (at Bainbridge), none of this would have happened.”

Another source:

Ferry sails for Seattle with drunk man aboard-

Investigation of ferry dock shutdown rules captain acted correctly

Another source:

Post-911 security protocols did not prevent unauthorized motorist from driving his vehicle onto the ferry:

Bomb scare has officials pointing fingers

“Gilliland did, though, cut ahead in the vehicle loading lanes, hopping from lane five to lane one in a hurried attempt to load onto the ferry, officials said.”

“”The folks on the vessel gestured for him to stop, but he swerved like he was going to run them over,” Harris-Huether said.”

“Ferry deckhands shoved wooden wedges under the wheels of Gilliland’s SUV to prevent him from moving and asked him to step out of the vehicle. Gilliland refused, locking his doors, revving his engine and rolling up his windows.”

 

Sept. 2007-

Harpist on Port Townsend-Keystone ferry silenced after 17 years

“Washington State Ferries officials had received two complaints from passengers, saying that they had to abide by security measures while Michael did not.”

Security measures?

Washington State ferry passengers are advised via PA system to not leave backpacks or packages unattended during ferry crossings.

Meanwhile- on the car deck- cars, trucks, vans, commercial vehicles, etc. are left unattended during ferry crossings.

Hidden cameras reveal airport workers stealing from luggage

“A CNN analysis of passenger property loss claims filed with the TSA from 2010 to 2014 shows 30,621 claims of missing valuables, mostly packed in checked luggage. The rest occurred at security checkpoints. Total property loss claimed: $2.5 million.”

“Even the TSA has had problem employees. Since 2002, the agency has fired 513 officers for theft.”

 

Surely- the folks who have daily access to the secured areas of US airports are required to pass background checks and possess special IDs in order to keep the system safe?

A giant security gap at U.S. airports? Most workers not screened daily

“The vast majority of airport employees with direct access to the tarmac and airplanes do not go through any daily security screening, and only two of the country’s major airports have systems in place that require all employees with secure access to pass through metal detectors, a CNN investigation has found.”

“There is no federal requirement that the baggage handlers, mechanics, cleaning crews and other employees with access to the airfield and other secure areas get screened as passengers do.”

 

Please speak with our public affairs/information suppression specialist if you have further questions:

“Representatives from eight airports deferred CNN’s questions on metal-detector screenings for employees to the Transportation Security Administration, which did not provide further information on the topic.”

 

More than a decade after 911:

“TSA is implementing or considering a range of measures, including additional requirements for employee screening; conducting additional, randomized security countermeasures at employee access points; and introducing additional security patrols by TSA teams of law enforcement and screening professionals to specifically address these concerns.”

“Additionally, TSA has created a working group with representation from airport security partners to further develop plans for improving security.”

“The TSA identified workers with access to secure areas of airports as one of the greatest potential threats to aviation, according to a 2009 report by the Government Accountability Office.”

“The report said costs for full screening of airport and airline employees could range from $5.7 billion to $14.9 billion for the first year of implementation. The entire TSA budget for 2015 is $7.3 billion.”

Maritime workers must have special ID:

I saw a pro-war meme on facebook yesterday. It shows the inside of a US military aircraft fully loaded with troops- headed out to kick some ass. Other similar posts that go around show one of several precision airstrike videos. We see the target- then, a few seconds later the building/facilities, vehicles, people on the ground are wiped out by a direct hit. This theme goes all the way back to the ’91 Gulf War- Desert Storm.

2015-

A whole lot of kicking ass going on- yet the US seems to struggle to get the upper hand- against opponents who have no modern navy, air force, etc.

 

Remember when the take down of Saddam Hussein & Osama bin Laden was big news in the War on Terror?

Lawmakers agree to $100 million reduction in commissary funding

commissary

Young people- please consider avoiding a career in the US Armed Forces.

Why?

Ongoing, undeclared/unwon wars in distant lands while heroin traffickers cross into the US free of screening, scanning, pat downs, special IDs, inspection of personal items, etc.

Lies told about US foreign policy and where military service fits into our way of life.

Wasteful spending.

Federal support for veterans: American Legion, Citing Problems, Calls for Veterans Secretary to Resign

Constant proposals to play bait & switch with the traditional DOD military benefits that were used to entice people to stay for multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.

 

“…they risk a readiness crisis if they don’t take significant steps this year to slow growth in military compensation.”

Growth in compensation?

How about just letting people keep the same benefits they had when they did their first of multiple tours in Iraq or Afghanistan?

 

Recommendation-

Insert language into recruiting literature and enlistment documents stating that rules concerning benefits may change at any time & that no definite benefit package will be provided in exchange for 20 years of unrestricted worldwide service. No grandfather clause will apply. Have unit leaders refer to this disclaimer when promoting retention drives, giving re-enlistment speeches, etc.

Stop spending federal money on meaningless support the troops promotions, campaigns and VIP photo ops that are not connected in any way with public policy.

Here is a hand selected lady who was surprised (1:12) to get a phone call of support from The First Lady- even though cameras were rolling in her home when the phone rang:

Recommendations for saving:

Phase out decades of ongoing, undeclared/unwon wars overseas. Phase out the Drug War, allow U.S. farmers to answer the global demand for Industrial Hemp.

“The advisory warns military personnel and their families about the Islamic State, or ISIS, calling on supporters to target their homes.”

Maybe we’ll see less camo for public appearances.

 

Purple Hearts might be awarded in domestic terrorism cases

 

Love to see a reporter ask how the wars since 911 have made the homeland more secure.

Love to see a reporter ask how cash spent on the surveillance state (fusion centers, war on terror crime fighting tactics, license plate scanners, Homeland Security grant money, monitoring of e-mails, text messages, and social media sites, tracking of cell phones, use of drones, etc.) will prevent domestic terror strikes.

Trying to get the story straight:

The Pentagon confirmed the bulletin was issued, but downplayed its significance.

“This is nothing new for us,” Defense Department spokesman Col. Steve Warren told reporters. “The department has long been aware and mindful of the potential for homegrown extremism, and we have continued to encourage and to advise all of our personnel to exercise the maximum amount of vigilance.”

Another Jeff Gray training video.

Operating a camera in a public place:

Meanwhile heroin traffickers cross into the US free of screening, scanning, pat downs, special IDs, inspection of personal items, etc.

Heroin traffickers are frequently successful at what they do. If terrorists were just as interested in entering the US- it appears that federal departments and agencies would have no way to stop them.

Lots of cocky comments here about how the USAF would kick ass on the terrorist air force: U.S. Air Force Itching To Fight ISIS

No mention of how the US seems to struggle to get the upper hand after being engaged for years now with folks who have had no air force.

Remember when the take down of Saddam Hussein & Osama bin Laden was big news in the War on Terror?

Trying to make sense of mixed War on Terror messages-

You are at risk of attack, you should be thankful that first responders & the troops are keeping you safe, be constantly aware of your surroundings, etc.

 

Real ID-

So critical to the safety of America- the terrorists we are supposed to stay scared of have until Oct. 1, 2020 to make use of the weaker standard:

Homeland Security Establishes Enforcement Date for Real ID

 

Soldiers’ families and homes may be IS targets, Army threat center reports

Maybe not such a great time to speak about military ops?

 

Small town/military community in the news:

Prowlers, Growlers from NAS Whidbey likely used in ISIS air strikes

“A senior Air Force officer and a federal lawmaker both have said in the past week that electronic attack aircraft based out of Naval Air Station Whidbey Island are likely being used in Syrian and Iraqi air strikes.”

Looks like the surveillance state (fusion centers, war on terror crime fighting tactics, license plate scanners, Homeland Security grant money, monitoring of e-mails, text messages, and social media sites, tracking of cell phones, use of drones, etc.) will be powerless to stop terrorist activity in the US:

Safety totes required at the stadium:

Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12.” (Official NFL team logo clear plastic tote bags will be available through club merchandise outlets or at nflshop.com/allclear), or

One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).

 

What prevents the badass terrorists we are supposed to stay scared of from blowing themselves up in a crowded airport just short of the screening checkpoint?

Ditto for hundreds of events nationwide each year at rock concerts, baseball games, basketball games, pro sports events, college events, etc.

How about city transit buses- any security screening required to walk up to a bus stop and take a seat on the bus?

Add in university campuses, hospitals, ferry boats, day care centers, etc., & it looks like terrorists have had daily opportunities to cause disruption- even though we are told that sending US Troops overseas is somehow preventing bad people from traveling to the US.

Intense security focus for the big game- what prevents terrorists from going 2 states over & blowing up a day care facility?

Heroin traffickers show the way-

Heroin traffickers are frequently successful at what they do. If terrorists were just as interested in entering the US- it appears that federal departments and agencies would have no way to stop them.

DHS-

Special ID cards make it virtually impossible for those who wish to do harm or violate U.S. laws to move heroin into US.

 

Port Angeles, WA-

Heroin traffickers continue to say FU to passports, enhanced driver’s licenses & all other post-911 efforts designed to keep terrorists out of the US:

Heavily fortified small town unable to keep heroin out

Question for newspeople:

What role do 1,200-horsepower Border Patrol Interceptor boats play in keeping heroin away from the Olympic Peninsula?

“… their main interaction with the boating public: Boarding boats and checking for ID, getting a “vibe,” as Jeff P. called it, for what’s up.”

Four images of “the heroes of 911″ are featured in the memorial. One is is a member of the military.

What role did the US Armed Forces play on 911?

 

Issaquah-

“The Spirit of America sculpture was also rejected by the city of Issaquah this month, in part because there wasn’t enough time to consider it before a June 18 application deadline with the foundation, said city spokeswoman Autumn Monahan.”

 

State Capitol-

Video- State Capitol campus rejects 9/11 memorial

 

Maybe the folks who don’t want the memorial are looking past the symbolism, ceremony & emotion towards what has gone on in Washington State during the War on Terror.

Still no justification provided by elected officials or the US Border Patrol for an upgrade in staff requiring a new, $11.9 million, 50 agent facility.

Secret arrest statistics, denied FOIA requests, heroin in the community & a Border Patrol whistleblower investigation that resulted in further suppression of information- keep the focus on asking questions in these areas.
