JFK Airport terminal evacuated and hundreds of passengers re-screened after Muslim TSA employee leaves metal detector unplugged

From Jihad Watch

This happened a couple of weeks ago and no flights went down, but it could have been a test of how to get people through security with material that would otherwise be detected, which they could then stash somewhere and retrieve later if they had to be re-screened. Or it could just be an incompetent TSA employee (there are certainly more than enough of those to go around) who just happened to be a Muslim.

There is no way to be sure at this point, although it would be refreshing, albeit unlikely, if law enforcement did a bit of digging into the activities of Alija Abdul Majed. In any case, this incident underscores how useless the TSA really is. They are always one step behind the jihadis, who are always thinking of new ways to murder for their god, and they steadfastly refuse to adopt screening measures that would focus on the groups that actually pose a terror threat -- to do so would be "Islamophobic," of course. And so instead, everyone has to put up with their intrusiveness and incompetence.

"Unplugged metal detector triggers JFK chaos: sources," by Philip Messing and Candice M. Giove in the New York Post, June 24 (thanks to the Investigative Project):
These fools are keeping us safe?!? 
The TSA’s bungling reached a new low yesterday when a JFK Airport terminal had to be evacuated and hundreds of passengers marched back through security screening all because one dimwitted agent failed to realize his metal detector had been unplugged, sources told The Post.
The stunning error led to hours of delays, two planes called back from the runway and infinite frustration for furious passengers.
“The truth is, this is the failure of the most basic level of diligence,” a law-enforcement source said.
“How can you expect the public to feel confident of the mission of the TSA if they don’t even know if the lights are turned on?”
The chaos at Terminal 7 was caused by screener Alija Abdul Majed, who had manned Lane No. 1 during the morning shift with no idea his metal detector had no juice, sources said.
Amazingly, he failed to realize that alert lights never flashed once as streams of passengers filed through the dead detector, the sources said.
Majed was so clueless that he couldn’t even tell police how long the machine had been shut off or how it happened, the sources said.
“It was simply an unplugged machine — the TSA doing its best,” another source said.
Higher-ups at the Transportation Security Administration finally discovered the security boondoggle at 9:44 a.m. — leaving the Port Authority with no choice but to call for a complete evacuation of the international terminal that is home to British Airways, Cathay Pacific, United Airlines and others.
The extraordinary measure meant that two jumbo jets — including a San Francisco-bound United flight — had to return to the gate so passengers could be rescreened at a metal detector that was actually turned on.
The TSA would not confirm or deny that its detector had been unplugged, releasing a statement saying only that a metal detector suffered a “malfunction.”
Eight to 10 flights were delayed as a result of the power-cord bungle, sources said....
PA officials reopened the terminal at 11:45 a.m., two hours after they were called in to clean up the TSA mess, sources said.
“Obviously, the horse was out of the barn by the time we were notified,” a PA source said.
In scary twist, the source couldn’t be certain that every passenger who went through the powerless detector had been accounted for and hadn’t gotten on a flight....


Eric Holder official portrait SC Eric Holder’s two decades of concealing murder

Information provided to congressional committees by ATF whistle-blowers and leaks within the Department of Justice prove Eric Holder to be either criminally complicit in the Fast and Furious scheme and cover-up, or the most incompetent, congenitally comatose Attorney General in the nation’s history.

Though Holder is many things, he is not incompetent, at least not in the willful “execution-upon-command” of illegal and despicable enterprises; especially when those enterprises involve Administration-generated murder.

“You need to know that Eric Holder…played a key role in covering up the torture-murder death of my brother, Kenneth Michael Trentadue.”

This is what Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue wrote in December of 2008 to prospective incoming chairman of the Senate Justice Committee, Patrick Leahy. The newly-elected Barack Obama had made Holder his choice for Attorney General, and Trentadue was going to do everything in his power to stop this shameful appointment going forward.

Kenneth Trentadue was killed in Oklahoma City on August 21st of 1995, four months after the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah building. He had been taken into custody by the FBI and placed in an isolation cell at a federal facility in El Reno, Oklahoma.

The official government report on the cause of death presented to Trentadue’s family stated that Kenneth hanged himself in his cell. But massive bruises and lacerations from head to toe compelled even the Oklahoma City medical examiner to state “very likely he was murdered.

Using emails and handwritten notes acquired in a 1997 wrongful death lawsuit against the DOJ, Trentadue demonstrated quite conclusively in his correspondence to Patrick Leahy that then-Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder had engineered a scheme to sidetrack any investigation into his brother’s death in order to “…deflect congressional oversight and media attention…”

A fifteen-year investigation by Jesse Trentadue revealed that Eric Holder had covered up the murder of his brother in order to prevent congressional investigators linking the death, and eventually the Clinton Administration itself, to the Oklahoma City bombing. And Holder’s efforts to derail the Fast and Furious probe have made it clear that 20 years have not changed the Attorney General’s propensity for corruption and deceit. For from the aftermath of Oklahoma City to the smuggling of guns across the Mexican border, Eric Holder has callously concealed murders for which two administrations have been responsible.

It’s hardly surprising that Holder’s DOJ minions have decided to not prosecute the Attorney General for the comparatively minor offense of refusing to provide Congress with subpoenaed documents. After all, Eric Holder has gotten away with murder—or at least with being an accessory after the fact—for nearly 2 decades.

Of course, Republicans MIGHT decide to charge Eric Holder with his many crimes when the November victory of Mitt Romney places the Department of Justice in GOP hands.  The Party might also bring Barack Obama to justice, both for participation in Fast and Furious and his willful, duplicitous role as Manchurian Candidate.

Yes, they might. But then, Holder and Obama might CONFESS too! The one is just as likely as the other.
Op-ed:
The UN Arms Trade Treaty...as unwanted as the UN itself
By: Diane Sori

 
Let’s cut right to the chase...the Obama wanted global United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) is nothing but a conundrum of restrictive obligations that basically renders our American firearm industry impotent and strips us of our Second Amendment rights.

The second Amendment of the US Constitution states, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Hear that Obama...”the right of the people to keep and bear arms.”

The latest attempt by the U.N. (the Useless Nations) and the liberal global elitist gun-haters, including our President, Secretary of State, and Attorney General, is to try and include our privately owned civilian firearms in the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty.  These miscreants want to place our guns and ammo in the same grouping with warships, attack helicopters, aircraft, tanks, submarines, military vehicles, missiles, ammunition and other weapons of war, in their attempt to place regulations on small arms import, export, transfer, brokering, and manufacture of conventional arms.

And they also want to “take the necessary legislative and administrative measures, to adapt, as necessary, (our) national laws and regulations to implement the obligations of this treaty.”

Give me a freakin’ break!

But what these UN jokers forget is that the United States of America is still a sovereign nation (the last time I checked it was anyway), and while the Useless Nations can bloviate all they want they really cannot tell the United States what they can and cannot do...unless, heaven forbid our elected officials do sell us out because they have NO backbone to stand up to Barack Hussein Obama.

Remember, in order for any treaty including treaties initiated by the Useless Nations to go into effect they must be ratified by two-thirds of the Senate and then get presidential approval.   Uh-oh are we in trouble because in addition to our socialist loving Constitution trampling president, guess which party currently has control of the Senate...yup, the libertard gun-hating Democrats.  

And here’s a little piece of information that needs remembering, The Arms Trade Treaty would fall under the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution (Article VI of the U.S. Constitution declares federal laws to have jurisdictional authority over state laws in the event there is conflict between laws established by two governing bodies, meaning that ALL treaties made under the authority of the US are the Supreme law of the land).  This would have the power of a constitutional amendment and could allow for a repeal of the Second Amendment.  

And sadly, adding to this is the wording of the proposed treaty itself, deliberately done in double-speak and misleading ambiguities, done so that an Obama ‘bought’ judge could eventually rule that constitutionally the treaty does indeed include our domestic firearms.  And a ratified treaty, given constitutional adjudication by said judge, could end up meaning that any US made weapon that has any foreign workings that might someday be exported overseas or affects the overall arms market could be part of the international trade clause that’s covered by the treaty.  

Bottom line... the United States must NOT sign this treaty and if Obama forces us to do so we must block the Senate from ratifying this abomination.

But all is not lost as there are ‘certain things’ we can do if this treaty does come to pass and it’s ruled that we must surrender our guns and ammo.  We can say, oops, we ‘lost’ our gun somewhere....we can report to the police that our gun was ‘stolen’...or ‘We the People’ can do what Congress has NO guts to do...we can stand united as one and collectively shout loud and clear to both Barack Hussein Obama and the Useless Nations that you can stick it with your treaty because ‘We the People’ will NOT allow you to tell us what we can or cannot do with our Constitutionally given right ‘to keep and bear arms.’

And then we can tell the UN to pack up its gear, its delegates, its flag, and all its crap, and get the hell out of our country because from our cold dead hands will some namby-pamby bunch of UN trash tell ‘We the People’ what we can or cannot do with our guns, our Bibles, and our country.

Then on their way out we can tell them to please take Barack Hussein Obama, our country’s very own enemy within, with them!
