Honest and meaningful ideas stand up to questioning and discussion.

The War on Terror has prompted law enforcement authorities to calm the public by looking into the future and announcing that no credible threat exists.

Newspeople play along by not asking questions.

Law enforcement officials find no ‘credible threat’ to July Fourth festivities


July 3, 2023 CNN

No credible security threats ahead of 47th annual Macy’s 4th of July fireworks show, NYPD says

“New York officials say there are no credible threats ahead of Tuesday’s annual Fourth of July fireworks celebration in Manhattan, but there will be heightened security, including thousands of police officers, across the city.”


Love to see newspeople show some initiative and curiosity in asking questions.

What we get now is sort of a press release style of news reporting where a statement is prepared by whatever agency was involved in the latest policy update, drug bust/federal grant money award, etc.

Newspeople post this statement as is. A 5th grade book report would require more in the way of asking questions.

Our questions appear in bold type below. We require no federal grant money in order to ask these questions.


No Credible Threat?

If the good guys can tell what the bad guys will do before they do it-surely, these powerful crime fighting tools will be used to shut down gang and cartel activity, heroin trafficking, bank robberies, mass casualty shootings, etc.

Where was the threat forecast prior to the April 12, 2022 NYC subway shooting?

TSA offers tips to get through Sea-Tac airport checkpoints over record 4th of July weekend

“The Transportation Security Administration anticipates a record number of travelers will be screened through security checkpoints this Fourth of July holiday weekend.”

“However, TSA says people can prepare for a smooth travel experience by keeping some simple reminders top of mind.”

Each agent screens an average of 5,000 passengers per hour on peak days at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA).”

Head out early and show up at the airport for security and ID checks?

What keeps the terrorists of the GWOT from creating a disruption at the back end of the screening line?

Has anyone ever seen any member of the press ask questions on this?

Security Theater: Customary Federal Pointlessness

“…the intelligence agencies have proved useless. NSA did not prevent the first attack on the Twin Towers in 1993, nor the successful one.”

“What goes on at airports is not security. It is Security Theater. When the government’s own agents try to smuggle “weapons” aboard airliners to test the system, they succeed ninety-five percent of the time.”

“Further, a terrorist doesn’t need to get aboard an airliner to blow up spectacularly. At many airports, hundreds of people line up at ticket counters during peak hours. A carry-on bag of explosive would easily create enough slaughter to shut down air travel and to make international headlines for weeks.”

Warnings at airports that unattended vehicles will be ticketed, towed, and perhaps destroyed are also Security Theater. By the time the vehicle was noticed, and somebody sent to check it out, an easy five minutes would have passed and the driver would be somewhere else. Boom.”
