"Democrats here in New York to play defense on some of these head scratching decisions that the U.S. Supreme Court has made. This state Republican Party pledged to challenge the law in court. For NPR news, I'm Ian pickus in Albany. It's NPR. The suspected driver in the Texas truck tragedy says he was unaware the air conditioning had failed, according to court documents. 53 people died after becoming trapped in the sweltering trailer in San Antonio, the driver is facing smuggling, resulting in death charges, three others also charged in connection with the case. The U.S. has ordered two and a half million more doses of monkeypox vaccine from Danish company Bavarian Nordic, though they won't arrive till later this year. Some 460 cases have been confirmed so far in the U.S. outbreak as the WHO warns countries must do more to ensure that what had been a rare disease does not become entrenched. It's a holiday weekend, but those stuck at the nation's airports may not feel like celebrating. So far today, more than 500 flights have been canceled, more than 2000 delayed, and piers David schaefer reports it comes as airports are more crowded this weekend than at any time since the pandemic. Well, bookings have slowed a little because of rising airfares and airline operational problems. There are still few, if any available seats on most flights, Kathleen bangs of the flight tracking site flight aware dot com says the days leading up to July 4th this year are the busiest for air travel since 2019. We've already hit two and a half million passengers traveling through TSA security two times in the past week. So we will probably see that again. But the limited capacity amid airline staffing shortages mean few extra seats are available to
Let's Not Overlook Another Important Decision Affecting Voter ID in NC
"I want to talk about another important case recently decided by the Supreme Court that has been a little sidelined because of the big decisions on gun rights, the big decisions on preying on the football field and of course the biggest decision of all the decision that God decision regarding that overturned roe versus wade, the case I want to talk about is called burger versus North Carolina state conference of the NAACP. And here is what's going on in that case. It's a voter ID case. So North Carolina passed a law basically saying that you need to have voter ID. You can't vote without proper ID. And this has now been contested in court. The voter ID law. But as it so happens, the Secretary of State, I'm sorry, the attorney general of North Carolina is a Democrat. He's opposed to voter ID. And so in a kind of irony, you got the NAACP suing to get rid of voter ID. And by the way, think of how ridiculous it says. This is the NAA suite basically saying that blacks don't know how to get ID. These are the same blacks, by the way, that travel on a plane. And get ID. Make doctors appointments and show their ID, open bank accounts, ensure their ID, but somehow when it comes to vote, they don't know how to get an ID and so an ID requirement becomes somehow racist, it becomes discriminatory. It becomes, quote, voter suppression, I mean, is requiring you to show ID at the TSA, travel suppression, when the bank says show me your ID before you cash a check is that banking suppression, nonsense. But in any event, you have this case, the NAACP wants to get rid of voter ID and the NAACP is counting on the attorney general of North Carolina a Democrat to be on their side. Now he's supposed to be defending the law, but he doesn't agree with the law. And so the point is he's going to make it's almost like a prosecutor who wants the guy who's accused to get off. And so what is he going to do? He's going to put on a really bad case. He's going to put on a bad case of the jewelry goes, wow, maybe the guy didn't do it. So he healed withhold evidence that is incriminating why because he doesn't agree with the prosecution. He doesn't want to go forward. And that's what's going on here. And so the Republicans basically step in and go listen, we want to be able to file briefs that support voter ID because we don't believe that the democratic attorney general is going to do a good job defending a law that was in fact passed by a Republican legislature. So that was the issue. And so earlier, lower court judges had said to the Republicans, you don't know, you can't intervene here. It's the job of the democratic attorney general to defend voter ID. If he does a bad job, he does a bad job, but it is his job. And so the question here went before the Supreme Court is simply this, do the Republicans who have an interest in the law. They passed the law. Have the right to be able to weigh in on the case. They can't displace the democratic attorney general, but they can file briefs that say to the court here are our reasons for why voter ID is a good idea. And the Supreme Court goes, yes, they can do that. You can't prevent them from doing that. In other words, the whole idea here is that our legal process is

The Media Has Never Provided Great Memorial Day Travel Advice
"And I backed this a 100% Dan backs at a 100% I take no responsibility for this hot take but there has never ever ever in the history of the media Ever been good advice offered to get out of the hellish truly hellish commute that you will have to be stuck in And traffic jam that you'll be stuck in during Memorial Day never We get the guts of the airport early That is useless advice And there's no such thing as early when we're talking about Memorial Day weekend Here's an example because I looked at Seattle sea tac as our airport The busiest times at the TSA security checkpoints and this is just across the board I'm assuming it's not taking into account TSA PreCheck which by the way TSA folks Can you at least raise the price I'm a total elitist I'll be totally honest when it comes to flying I'll pay whatever you want so I can get in that line You've opened it up to way too many people that now it's like a normal TSA line And as more people sign up for TSA pre check guess what You don't add any more TSA pre check points at the security lines So they just get long So stop this nonsense And by the way dummy if you've already paid however much it costs to get the 5 year TSA pre check you don't have to take off your shoes But keep your shoes on idiot Why'd you buy them I shouldn't call people names But here's my point The busiest times at TSA security checkpoints At sea tac 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. So they're saying you got to plan ahead get at least two hours before your flight If your flight is at 10 a.m. and it's busiest for the two hours prior you're going to have to leave even earlier So what you can sit in the airport board to tears draining your battery watching movies or listening to podcasts on your phone And that's only if you can find a seat None of which have working USB ports to plug your phone into So you're just draining that battery which drives me nuts that we can't figure this out
Fresh "TSA" from Afternoon News with Tom Glasgow and Elisa Jaffe
"What it's worth, I'm Brian Clark, heading out for the long holiday weekend. You're not alone. Triple-A expecting nearly 48 million travelers with 42 million of them hitting the highways. This, despite a gallon of gas costing four 84 on average and in a case of unfortunate timing, the gas tax is going up in the golden states as ABC's Alex stone in Los Angeles. Californians were already paying more than anyone else in the U.S. for gas. And the state gas tax increased, up three more cents. Drivers say the bump in prices makes a bad situation even worse. I'll be staying in town for 4th of July. Not driving anywhere. If you're heading to the airport, there could be a weight, hundreds of delays and cancellations reported around the country on Friday.

North and I 5, that's still difficult from the Boeing freeway it's bumper to bumper traffic into Everett past highway two and then sluggish up towards Marysville. All right, couple problems in the in average. So north Broadway, where it becomes marine view driver turns to marine view drive. Solid traffic northbound and on marine view drive itself is also a real big struggle through Everett and as it curves around and the reason for all of this is a collision on marine view drive both directions at highway 5 two 9 north Broadway.

Flyers Cheer Mid-Air as Pilot Announces That Masks Are Now Optional
"The transportation security administration no longer enforced the federal mandate requiring masks and all the U.S. airports and aircraft. Finally. Whoo. I think that is the most populous social media product now available on any micro blogging platform like the Twitter. It is, of course, the videos from on board those aluminium tubes. Aluminum. Is that right? Where people listen to their captain announcing, yep, it's over the insanity, the science denial of having a cloth mask on your face, except when you're eating or drinking when COVID magically disappears whilst you are eating and drinking is over. Why? Because a brave female federal judge struck it down saying that HHS TSA and the rest of the federal agencies had no mandate to force you to do

Bio-Labs and Deep State Lies: The Truth With Candace Owens
"Work in Ukraine to eliminate the remnants of Soviet Union's illegal biological program. Like, okay, it takes 17 years to remove a buy a lot. Like maybe like 5, you know, maybe at the TSA speed like ten, but like 17 years to get rid of a bio lab, like really? I mean, that's where we're at the point where. And by the way, they lied about snake island, right? They lied about the ghost of Kyiv. You know, there's been a lot of kind of disinformation. That's what happens in war, right? So here's what it said in WikiLeaks really quick from 2008. We know that somewhat the government was doing in Ukraine from documents released by WikiLeaks. In a 2008 cable, it was revealed by Andrew Weber of OSD CTR, the type of cooperative threat reduction program held a discussion with the Ukrainian official, but the need to create one central lab in Ukraine that would house its most dangerous pathogens because amongst other reasons quote the U.S. seeks to consolidate the strains and pathogens that could be used by terrorists on humans or agricultural targets. That's WikiLeaks in 2008. Right. And this is all, these are the conversations that the American people should be having because as I said, the implications here are much larger and way beyond what's happening between Ukraine and Russia. What is art? We've never gotten an official answer about the Wuhan lab. And we know that American money was there. And I think what they're trying to do is play a game of semantics when it comes to bioweapon, right? Versus biological research. Here's the thing. If you're researching dangerous pathogens, those are weapons, right? If they are leaked out of a lab, they become well weapons. So for them to try to play this game of semantics and go, well, this is just for research purposes. Nobody should be accepting that as an excuse. Why are we researching so many dangerous pathogens? And like I said, the opposition party in Ukraine a few years ago before zelensky locked the guy up, was saying that they were having unusual outbreaks in Ukraine and serbians was reporting on this as well. All around these bio labs that our Department of Defense has been funding. And

"Guys I've been looking forward for some time to bring on my friend a Brandon struck, Brandon strock is the founder of the tremendous walkaway movement, the movement of former leftist former liberals, former Democrats walking away from the Democratic Party, and then the U.S. government, the Biden DoJ when after Brandon strock for his involvement in January 6th, and that's what we're gonna talk about Brandon welcome to the podcast. Thank you for joining me. First of all, let me just say I know you've been through quite an ordeal. You and I have talked occasionally during this time and so I know some of what you've gone through. I'm very sorry for the way in which you have been treated by our government. I obviously know something a little bit about it myself. So let me just start by asking, you know, how are you doing right now? You know, I'm doing pretty well. And I have to be honest, you know, it's been a lot and there's so much that I think people still don't know that was pieces of the fallout of this. It wasn't just going to jail or just facing charges. It was mass cancellation. It was receiving letters in the mail, telling me that I'm now considered too dangerous to have TSA PreCheck and being put on a terrorism watch list. I mean, it goes on and on and on. But it's going to take time, I think, to process and get over a lot of what I've gone through. But today, I'm thrilled to be talking with you and I'm feeling
TSA Reveals Illegal Migrants Flying Without Proper ID Can Use an ARREST WARRANT as Identification
"The transportation security administration revealed that illegal immigrants who are unable to obtain proper identification proper identification are being allowed to pass through security using an arrest warrant to prove their identity. Congressman Lance gooden a Republican from Texas had sent a letter to TSA after a whistleblower claimed the agency was allowing unknown migrants to board commercial airlines in the U.S.. The TSA administrator responded. Saying that certain Department of Homeland Security documents may be considered acceptable alternate forms of identification, including a warrant for arrest and a warrant of removal and deportation. We're letting illegals board a Delta Air Lines flight using their arrest warrant as a form of ID. TSA is so bad is so awful is so screwed up. That illegals who don't have proper identification can use their arrest warrant as proper identification.

Democratizing Access to Hospital-Grade Disinfection with Eli Harris, President of R-Zero
"Talk to us a little bit about our zero. What is it that you guys are doing. how are you adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. Yes so it was almost sixteen months ago. Now with the academic. I started a a ticket hold. I got in touch with the two mentors in mind. Both entrepreneurs who i've known for about a decade and the three of us started talking about how there's certain events throughout history that just create everlasting societal and infrastructural changes in a dork way. We kinda like in what was happening of the pandemic to nine eleven. How after nine eleven. We have the department of homeland security. You have. tsa fourteen thousand agents.

But we never arrest fundamentally the world took on a new posture around security in all shared spaces at our thesis. Fear was at this event of the pandemic was going to broaden that word security to biosecurity to biosafety and in the standards that all organizations are gonna fold as they regard a human health in the safety of their staff their patrons of their communities at large so what we did. Kind of unpacking the disinfection industry. And we've learned quickly that this is a massive industry. Hundreds of billions of dollars market cap governed by these goliath players. Ecolab clorox se. johnson diversey. All of these companies are extremely old. Some over a hundred years old and more or less all pushing commodity chemicals and our response to the pandemic was to go around and host buildings down the chemicals. And that's what we did in. This industry has not evolved with the technology that is becoming become commonplace in almost every other industry. It's extremely antiquated in what we're doing with chemicals. I mean there's there's a lot of limitations there one is. They're not always that effective. There's a lot of human error and how they're applied there's a massive labor cost a massive op ex chemical costs at. It's horrible for the environment. So we got in touch with. Dr richard wade and dr wade actually ran cal osha for fifteen years. He taught at harvard oxford. Uc irvine. We like to call him. The michael jordan's disinfection.

"Taft Hartley act back in one thousand nine hundred forty seven federal employees have been legally prohibited from striking but lawmakers who approved that measure likely did not envision a scenario where the government would require its employees to work without paying them. As is the case. Now, another angle of the shutdown. From Russell Berman staff writer at the Atlantic. Russell who are these workers, central employees ether TSA agencies are corrections officers bureau of prisons, either air traffic controllers of a secret service, and they have to go to work. Anyway, even though they are not currently being paid. That's putting a lot of financial strain on them. But they're not allowed to walk out. Because even though they're not being paid federal law. Prohibits federal employees from going on strikers or staging any kind of mass walkout. Why is that why is that law in place? That has been in place since the Taft Hartley act in one thousand nine hundred forty seven, and you know, of course, that was designed in the era of, you know, big labor unions to prevent federal employees from using the leverage of of a strike to demand higher pay more benefits, better working conditions where they would clearly have the power to shut down the government themselves or operations or the government in this case. However, you know, this is not federal employees bargaining for better pay. They just asking to be paid period. And so it's an open question. Whether this law was challenged in court, would it still apply in a situation where federal employees are not being paid at all. Even though they will be paid once the government reopens whenever that might be. Why could you imagine that chaos? Right. TSA workers don't show. Up bureau of prisons, folks. Don't show up air, traffic, controllers, stay home. Wow. Right. It'll be over tonight to the leaders of their unions. They are encouraging them to go to work. There hasn't been any official talk of a walkout. And and part of that is the memory of what happened the last time, a federal employees union tried to to strike, and that was in nineteen eighty one with the aircraft controllers and Ronald Reagan famously fired them all and and that pretty much that message resonates today in so if they were not to show up they would be at risk for being considered absent without leave, and that would set off consequences that could lead up to and including their termination, and that per longtime employees could jeopardize their pension. So there is a lot of risk for federal employees. If they don't show up. Now, we have seen reports and PSA has acknowledged that they are. Are experiencing significantly higher rates of call outs. Some TSA agents essentially calling out sick rather not being paid. And that is starting to affect the operations at some airports. And so we'll see if that increases as the shutdown goes on we're speaking. With Russell Berman staff writer at the Atlantic. He's written a piece entitled y federal workers still have to show up even if they're not being paid. You know, there was a point made in your story to that struck me as part of the stressfulness of all this. And that's at some of these workers who are now not getting paid might not even have enough money for gas to get to work. Right. So the TSA employee's the agents as well as the correct corrections officers at the bureau of prisons are among the lowest paid of the federal employees who are required to work. And so, you know, many of them are living paycheck to paycheck. They missed their last paycheck on Friday. So some of them. For example, if they can no longer afford childcare they have to decide whether to care for their their children or show up for work. And and certainly there are in the prisons, especially many of them are located the president of the union was telling me, many of them are located in rural areas, and there's a very long commute for the prison guards Russell. It's Russell Berman. Staff writer at the Atlantic. It is twelve minutes after the hour on this weekend. I can't believe it. We're in an elevator.

You know, it's it's not gonna show anything, but a lot of real time. Well, actually during the day. I don't know whether it's they they have real time and projections because I'm looking at the projection right now between eight and twelve noon at every gate, and they go eight what at at at the different. Gates, what it will be because I'll be there about I'm gonna I'm gonna sleep a little bit. I'll be at the airport by nine my flight is at eleven fifty. But I'm going that much early just to make sure because I actually don't trust this. You don't trust. Right. Yeah. But, but I I wanna see I wanna look at it to see how accurate it is. Right. And so when the gates the TSA checkpoints that I can get in. If I get there at nine o'clock, it's eleven to twenty minute. Wait at one is a projection zero to ten minute, wait at the other TSA entrance. And then eleven to twenty minutes at the other one. I mean, there are some you're looking you look at terminal e. And this is what they have an I fly dot com. Terminal e which is not the gates that I'm going on not the terminal being and they have twenty one plus minutes, but they do have they have they have three different TSA checkpoints in that in there and two of them are twenty one plus minutes and the other one Serb zero to ten. Okay. So. How accurate it's going to be? I don't know. And I may take my when I walk in. I may take my take some film. But I'm thinking about this yesterday. Like, I said there are probably put I might do it on Twitter. I'll take some, you know, some some pictures or video when I walk in. That'd get you a Pat down, I'm thinking, go, wait a minute. I'm not going to be taking pictures at Pat down real quick. They may Pat you down. Now, the advantage is I did get and I haven't for my last. Two flights. But I did get TSA pre check. Okay. And it's because once in a while you get it because I'm a frequent flyer. So I have what the lowest level. Un-american which is gold. But it still gets me in the premium flyer line, which is normally a shorter line. I found though that when I got gotten TSA pre check at times, the TSA pre check line is longer than the the other line, right? So, but I have both. I got the TSA pre check and whatever. So I'll be able to have my choice, and I'm already planning for sun. And I'm sure anybody else's winds doing the same thing this weekend. And and I'm coming back on I've got like a late afternoon. Flight around five from Tampa back. Now the best martyrs. It's direct. And as I said yesterday, my my friend, Jerry has his wife, Mary also, my friend. It's her birthday Sunday. Jerry, Gary, and Mary, Gary and Mary, right. We'll be going out to celebrate. Yes. Her her birthday celebration this weekend? But he wants to Sunday they wanna to do a dinner. They want to do it early. And they knew it's like like one o'clock and they want to do. And so we're we're going to be again, we'll probably wanted to dinner Saturday and everything else. But they wanna do it specially with some other friends, and it all depends on on the field. I get for the airport. I may stay. They want to do at one o'clock, right? Just take Uber and say, you guys go, and maybe I'll just be at the beginning of the dinner because some of their other friends that I know are going to be there. But it's the arrangement is we'll go to the restaurant, and we'll see what happens. And if you think you gotta go go, and I'm just going to get an Uber and go to the airport at that point. But I'm preparing to get there. Three hours early. Again, you just don't wanna you don't wanna take the chance. No, the longest line. I was ever in. Was at PD Portland. Oregon. And it was after nine eleven. It's when they were when they started with the all the new rules and regulations for the Pat down on the new machines and everything else, I'm going to guess probably two thousand to two thousand three. The line was unbelievably long on. I mean, it was just it had at least be an hour, and I didn't see anywhere else to go stand in the one line, and then some people came down. And they said are you a premium flyer will? Yeah. Oh, you go over to this line over here where there's nobody. By cattle. Nice to see a cattle that I went up to the other. Yeah. I. I can't remember the the longest line of ever stood in. I mean it happens, especially if I'm flying for business, and and you're flying during the week, and the whole thing I mean a lot of business wires during the week, especially in the terminals that I leave from. And it is, you know, typically, I I always allow for at least an hour long line. Sometimes I'll walk in and just go right through. It's not just a few minutes. But. My question is. Where's the where's it gonna go with TSA? Where's it going to go with the, you know, if if they're up to what a six percent, or whatever it is sick out right now. You know, how how long can that go on? We talk about you know, Pelosi and the president basically saying, no, you gotta stay here. We can't negotiate if you're gone. By the way, which I thought was a great move. The media is is trolling him. And you know, saying he's being childish. But are they negotiating or not? Is she refusing to negotiate right? He hasn't left. He hasn't left. Now, they had a very short meeting last time because she said, no, she just said flat out, no left, no room open. Well, you can't negotiate. If you're not there. You can't you can't sit down if you're not there. And and I'm I'm guessing this weekend is going to be fine. Four travel for for me. Yeah. Not not at all. Because in all airports. It's it's not. I mean, but, but I think most people that are flying most people that I've talked to or communicate with me because I said it yesterday a few people said, yeah. Flying this weekend to and want to be there. Three hours, not two hours earlier an hour and a half early or an hour early. Because a lot of times people, especially if you know because there are at times and I haven't flown out. Sometimes you can fly out what you get there at nine o'clock nine thirty. There's nobody in line you just go right through. I mean, it's Dr times you go into the airport, and it it's just it's a piece of cake. It's just I fly at all different times and find a different time today. Normally when I fly it normally when I fly it's real early morning. So most of the time that I most of the time that I leave here on a on a Friday and go directly to the airport from here. Normally, it's it the pre I'm going into the premium line. But I would say that the other lines probably are still about twenty minutes. Okay. And that's if you're getting to the airport between. Seven o'clock flight, and you're getting there at five or quarter after five, you know, it's it's still a at least in the gates that I that I normally fly out, and that would be a American that would be see you're usually see you're a out of out of Dallas that those terminals. I just don't know how Tampa is going to be though, which is you just you don't know how the staffing is. But what I'm worried about is going back to see my mom and dad on president's day weekend. Because why all of that minutes a month from now? Right. What's it gonna be like that? Yeah. We talked to a caller earlier who Bill who said, you know. I'm now, I'm gonna book my flight. He's flying retreat answer treatment. Yeah. And again, our thoughts and prayers are with him. But making the point that he he backed his flight up to a day before to give himself that full extra day. You know, when you when it because at some point it's going to get worse at some point, the sickout probably is going to get worse. Yeah. You're going to have people that are going to because they're they're missing car payments. They're missing, you know, rent. Food all of it. And you're living paycheck to paycheck. You're not. You're not getting rich working at the TSA. So the point is is that. If you don't have a way to you know to to. To bridge that gap in those paychecks. You can only do do that for so long. Even if you had a let's say a credit card. With a decent limit that you could put everything on. Well, that's going to cost you. And so the point is is when that happens. And you have people making decisions at the TSA or or the the air traffic control. It starts to affects people who fly. Well, I, you know, at one thing is when they announced at the State Department. They were going to bring them in for fifteen days. First thing I thought was politically that's not gonna look good. No Branca's, you're die. You're going to have a ton of people say, well, no, the first people you should bring back. Our the TSA people not the people in the State Department. Right. If they're not essential in the State Department. They're not essential. If there are essential than you need them. They should be there. Right. But if they're not essential. What's more? What's more important than the the non essential employees of the of the the State Department or the absolutely essential employees of TSA that's going to be the mindset that goes around. And look, I feel as you said, you know, the average salary is between thirty and fifty thousand depending if your supervisor or something like that. But the probably the majority of people are probably making between probe in different areas. I think in different cities, they may be more because of the cost of living. I did see that. I did see that. I think one of the the government websites about you know, what the money was. But you know, probably thirty to thirty five thousand they're not getting rich. And even though it when we had the whole TSA argument way back then when? When you know, I said, look, I don't believe the government should be doing it. I believe that it it still should stay privatizing. You could do a great job and the majority of the audience disagreed with me. But I've never been even when people would get I've never I've never had anything. But great experiences from everybody who works at TSA in in those lines their attitude. They're fr- they're their their friendliness and everything else never had anything but positive things. But that's because I'm positive you. See how you doing doing good today? Whatever. And I'm sure a lot of people a lot especially frequent flyers probably talk. Hey, you doing okay that's going to happen. How you doing? You you hanging in there. Okay. People are people ask like that. Because when you get into personal one-on-one situations. That's how most Americans are, you know? And I bet you most flyers b b b the same way. But so, yeah, when you think about the fact that they're, you know, they're losing some money from an individual standpoint it hurts. Because again, if you're if it's a few weeks, that's one thing. You get past the first of February, and again, right and your car payment is due again, childcare childcare and everything which you gotta pay now. And and all of those, you know, and of course, then the whole eating thing. Apparently you're supposed to eat every day. But the whole idea though, you know, it. It becomes something different because they're two types of flyers. Business. Flyers leisurely fires. And it doesn't matter. If it's if you spent money on vacation, you spent money. If you fly for business, use your either you or your company spent money, and you're losing money. If you can't get there on time. If you can't get there at all if flights canceled or delayed, they're not to that point yet. But that goes back to the big question, Mark, how long can you? How long can this last? I suspect it won't go much longer past the first of February. If we reached that point. Coming up. I think it's obvious that if. You have Ruth Bader Ginsburg who says okay, I'm going to. I'm going to hang it up. I'm just too sick. If that happens. I know what the Democrats are gonna do. It's obvious. They're doing it right now doing it to Mike Pence. It's the only place that they can go, especially if the president doesn't pick a man the only place they can go sorry. Christians camping on the supreme court. That's where they're going. I'm telling you, that's where they're going that more on the.

"At Dallas Fort Worth. Wait, wait, wait times at TSA checkpoints right now. How far back does it go because you know, at three A M local time three oh six now. It. It's it's not going to show anything, but a lot of real time. Well, actually during the day. I don't know whether it's they they have real time and projections because I'm looking at the projection right now between eight and twelve noon at every gate, and they go eight at at the different gates, but it will be because I'll be there about I'm gonna I'm gonna sleep a little bit. I'll be at the airport by nine my flight is at eleven fifty. But I'm going that much early just to make sure because I actually don't trust this. You don't trust. Right. Yeah. But I want to see I wanna look at it to see how accurate it is. Right. And so when the gates the TSA checkpoints that I can get in. If I get there at nine o'clock, it's eleven to twenty minute. Wait at one is a projection zero to ten minute, wait at the other TSA entrance. And then eleven to twenty minutes at the other one. I mean, there are some you're looking you look at terminal e. And this is what they have an fly dot com. Terminal e which is not the gates the that I'm going on not the terminal and they have twenty one plus minutes, but they do have they have they have three different TSA checkpoints in that in there and two of them are twenty one plus minutes and the other one Serb zero to ten. Okay. So. How accurate is going to be? I don't know. And I may take my when I walk in may take my take some film, but I'm. I was thinking about the I sit there will probably put I might do it on Twitter. I'll take some, you know, some some pictures or video when I walk in. That'd get you a Pat down, I'm thinking, wait a minute. I'm not going to be taking pictures. Pat down real quick. Pat, you down. Now, the advantage is I did get and I haven't for my last. Two flights. But I did get TSA pre check. And it's because once in a while you get it because I'm a frequent flyer. So I have what the lowest level. On American which is gold. But it's still. Gets me in the premium flyer line, which is normally a shorter line. I have found though that when I have got gotten TSA pre check at times of TSA pre check line is longer than the the other line, right? So, but I have both. I got the TSA pre check and whatever. So I'll be able to have my choice, and I'm ready planning for sun. And I'm sure anybody else was doing the same thing this weekend. And I'm coming back on I've got like a late afternoon.

And they said are you a premium flyer will? Yeah. Oh, you go over to this line over here with nobody. By abdel. Nice to see cattle that I went up to the other. Yeah. I I can't remember the the longest line of ever stood in.

But I'll tell you what I mean. I I I was flu today. Got up this morning at one thirty local time here and at four thirty in in Baltimore and flew back. But I was talking to TSA guys. You know me was going. You can't not talk to exactly you have to speak to TI. So you guys get paid yet? And he's like disgusted now, I go I said that sucks, man. I'm really sucks, you guys do this occupation. And so I hear him. So they feel me out. And I said this three times three different TSA person. And they all hated Trump. But they known of them set it like that they let me say it. And then they did this thing with there is like the little nodding their heads slightly out of their head. Not to say. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly there. Anyway. I got talking to one of them. And and his buddy is in Syria. His best friend. Yeah. And he was so he talked to me about Trump. And he said he goes, did you hear the Pence had said recently that we had eliminated ISIS, and then of course, four soldiers die in the last twenty four hours killed by ISIS in Syria. And and a lot of people are saying it's because of Trump's saying we're going to pull out and they felt emboldened. You know, when I get us on the way out. So so a lot there's a lot happening out there. So when I talk about winning or losing, I hope if you're affected by this. You don't think I'm trivializing trivializing? I'm just thinking how the solution is going to emerge and get people paid where they are.

Border patrols all all agencies. That are needed and vital are being put at risk. And that means we all okay. I'll tell you one reason I think that Trump is winning on this. And and I it's because he has the state of union coming up and he'll use that even though flows. She says she asked him to not do the state of the union. She could just shut the capital down. They own the capital, they could say do you can do the state of the union. But you gotta go to. Taco bell. Yes..

But not this TSA not this government led TSA absolutely not twenty fifteen. They failed ninety five percents of undercover tests by DHS agents ninety five I mean, we just had a story yesterday about a pistol making it through all the way to the plane shouldn't have a twenty seventeen that number of failed test eighty percent so somewhere between eighty and ninety five percent of the flights could be compromised. Yeah, that's not effective and we pumped seven point six billion dollars into the into TSA. Well, I I don't have a problem with the idea of it being privatized. I think we might have a more effective higher morale. I think the is probably pretty low alive at the time and TSA I have a feeling it's probably I'm sure there high turnover. I'm sure yeah.

"A year ago and TSA is not going to change its security protocols. So that means fewer checkpoints potentially longer lines. Okay. So percent not a ton. But significantly more than a year ago. Right. What about this for the second day in a row the security checkpoint here at terminal b inside here since George Bush intercontinental airport is shutdown? We're hearing from the TSA this morning. They tell us that Judah staffing issues associated with the government shutdown. They were forced to close it over the weekend a similar site at Miami International Airport as though sick outs increase nationwide. We have terminals if we have concourses if at some point in time, we have entire airports that. Need to shut down because they don't have enough TSA workers to have security. Does that reopen the government? I think it's based on your theory of what it would do to commerce. I think it's a pretty serious shove toward reopening the government because at that point. Even I think President Trump would recognize there's more negative to positive to holding out for border security border security funding. It's grinding this nation to a halt. And I just don't think even President Trump would play that kind of. You'll blink before. I do kinda game with the Democrats with all this at stake is already enough in terms of the human impact to the shutdown. Amongst government workers that it really is starting to get uncomfortable to see what what people are having to go through the TSA in mass walked out. Yeah. I think that would do it. We're starting to hear some stories that are trickling out regarding the TSA. No, yes, we've got, you know, the call out rates that have doubled over a year ago, we've got airport terminals that are shutting down this seems to be a one off, but authroity out there just to have a bit of a discussion on and that is a passenger was able to board a flight from Atlanta to Tokyo. Well, the gum TSA is determined standard procedures were not followed. And a passenger did in fact pass through a standard screening TSA. Check point with a firearm at Hartsfield Jackson, Atlanta international airport on the morning of January third. Delta Airlines also issued a statement saying that upon the customer's disclosure the airline reported the incident to the TSA it was the customer who made the airline aware of it who then made the TSA aware of it. Now. It's not like we have a. A systemic problem where firearm after firearm after firearm is making their way through the TSA. But does this give you a moment of pause not related to the shutdown because the first thing I would think of in a case like that is if there was an error on the TSA as part are the are the people who are working are they being over word are they working, double shifts. Are they putting in too many hours Petillo issue and everything that we've read is no the people who are showing up for work or working their normal hours normal shifts to where that would not be a concern. And we've heard stories of this in the past that every so often somebody's able to get something through that they shouldn't and it just isn't detected by by the agents at the checkpoints. So if your question to me is does this race concern because we're still in a shutdown and there's eight percent of the TSA workforce. That's not showing up for work. No, that's not the reason. I would be concerned. I'm flying Thursday. And I am starting to kind of like, oh, you know. But not because we'll boy there's a gun that got through and Hartsfield airport. No, I'm with you on that. I just throwing it out there for discussion as well. As this. TSA workers that were on the job December twenty seconds are gonna receive pay for the day. No later than tomorrow. Now, why is that important? Well, it seems to be this bonus that the TSA is compensating those that were on duty the day after the lapse in funding and giving them a five hundred dollar bonus for working during the holiday travel season. So you're working during the holiday travel season. That's something that I would imagine is kind of like a requirement for the TSA because so many people are travelling at that period of time. But that this bonus this five hundred dollar bonus seems to be thrown out there to ease the pain of those that are working during this government shutdown and maybe not getting a paycheck. So why are they getting a five hundred dollar bonus for working during the shutdown? I it just seems like they're being thrown a bone which just doesn't feel right to me. It feels like okay. So what about the those that are that are working? In the towers are working for, you know, airline security. What what am I thinking of right now, though, the the operator is up in the tower making air traffic controllers how much it's a Monday. My brain is fried. Do they get about see? I haven't heard that brought up either. In the midst of the shutdown is the air, traffic controller or also federal employees. And we don't we don't talk about what kind of stress they're under protest. They may undertake to protest the fact they're not getting paid. But you're right. A bonus for TSA. There's an there's an equal amount of stress. I would think would both being TSA agent in an air traffic controller. I think there as well. Okay. You're right. I agree now that I think about it. Yeah. You're right. And they're not getting a bonus on the surface. You think gee, that's kind of nice. They're giving him a bonus for working over the holidays. But again, how many others worked over the holidays? Are they getting bonuses? Just the TSA. Right. I just a lot of people work in the airport at places like food service. Baggage handlers. Dirk getting a bonus. But if you wanna if you wanna break this this this shutdown. Yeah. I think I think so great. All right. So coming up next here a woman, she went thousands of dollars at a slot machine. But because of one small little air, they told her. Yeah. Now, you're not getting that money, and she didn't do anything wrong. We'll talk about what happened in Maryland. Coming up next here on KTAR news..

"Let's say fun fact if I were to run through a TSA security point airport would the TSA agent. Chase me don't think too hard. No because CSA has no law enforcement capability Dale have guns. They'll have tasers. They can't chase. You can't tackle you. They can't do anything. It's full on security theater. What happens is the TSA will call airport security. You know, those little police cars outside they'll call air marshals US marshals they'll get literally someone with an actual badge and the gun to go out and take care of you. But to say that the TSA is risking their lives. Have we ever heard of TSA agent dying in the line of duty last? I checked to the thin blue line flags don't really extend out to TSA if. They do. I'd like to make the argument that that more mall cops have died and risk their lives than say just just putting that out there. That is. That's that's ridiculous. That is that is just oh my gosh. I it's hard to read past that. I'm sorry. It's just a little distracting, but it is completely unacceptable that the women men who risk their safeguarding. Our airports are still required to report for work without knowing when they'll be paid again. Okay. That that part because we all know in the government's opening backup. I I understand that. But there's gotta be provision out there. I'll know that there are, but like this, you know, that part ideal understands because it's not like they're getting type of insight as to win it happens. They know as much as we do. Say officers already had the least amount of rights of any federal officer yet because they're just a step. I'm sorry. They're stuck below mall. Cops there mall cops that are called federal employees. But whatever some of the lowest pay in highest attrition rates in the government because no one wants to work there because it sucks stupid that doesn't do anything among the lowest morale of any federal agency. I believe that because if mall cops dishing on you like we used to then you've got a problem anyway working for weeks on end without being compensated while already being short staffed only makes their situation worse. He said and that part I do get. I my heart goes out to them continuing the federal government spiraled into a partial shutdown last month over congresses in the Bill to pass a spending Bill including president Donald Trump's demand for border wall funding, he seeking more than five billion. But Democrats yet budge and no end to the impasse in sight. I think it was Mark Levin. He did a breakdown. Federal budget five billion falls into and this this should who. Are if your numbers guy. It makes up point. I'm sorry zero point zero zero one percent of federal budget. Dad is chump change five billion dollars chump change compared to what the federal government spends things on. And you know, some people are wondering how should Trump deal with this issue because it's are becoming pretty pretty more parent as people start to really think of ways these the TSA, which is just full on security theater. No one really loves them as a way to score political points two things. I wanna point you two are the Boston police strike and then Ronald Reagan, dealing the air traffic controllers, but will try and break it down one by one for some of the don't know Calvin Coolidge is probably my favorite president all American history. And I'm reading an article from US history dot com. Go ahead and link this article in the show notes, but long story short there were series of strikes that were going on because of unions. And according to the article by the fall of nineteen nineteen series of strikes, hit the United States as unions attempted to gain higher wages to adjust for wartime inflation that was a big issue because of World War One. And it was our first major foreign war where I mean, we were just that was also a few years after the Federal Reserve came out. So we're just printing inflating money, and it's affecting people at home because of the draft austerity. It was a bad time. The article continues collective bargaining had long been viewed by with suspicion by many Americans who suspicions were heightened by the worker..

"Don't have to take your shoes off your computer out. Anything get it. If you don't take twenty minutes to sign up. Yeah. So I go through and we're going through and the TSA. Pre check woman says she looks at my thirteen year old and says how old is he because anyone over twelve is has to have separate ID for pre check. And unfortunately, you're six foot one, right? Yeah. He's very very tall for for for thirteen year old even. But so, okay, if someone asked you and your line and someone says well now how old is this kid because if you're over twelve you have to have separate ID. And if you don't you have to go back with the regular people. What would you say? Well, my kids are conditioned to lie under all circumstances. Have to have the law. You have to lay you have to lie. Yeah. You can't say like my wife says, well, we didn't have trouble with this the first time when you don't challenge the she says that and I basically like in the sitcom e way had my hand over mouth thing. But it doesn't matter because he's twelve anyway. So the woman looks at us as like whatever go through. That's all they have to hear right? They're not gonna make a big stink unless someone screams in the air like, no, no, he's thirteen. So what do we do? Then. Then there's a problem then you have to go to the shitty line, right? But no. So I fought that. But I now know that we have one more TSA pre check person to go to get everyone on board. I was like listen, you are twelve years old. I don't care. I'm not going that long line. Just tell them you're twelve when we get to the next person forty feet from that. Okay. Everyone on board. Yup. Good. Good. Good. Everyone's on board woman says okay? So he twelve or thirteen and how old is he because you know, if you're over twelve you have to go on a separate line. You can't go TSA pre check in Archie says I'm twelve and my youngest my five year old says you are not twelve years thirteen. And now, I grab the family. I put my arm around. And I just shove everyone forward pass. The why it was really it was like a Argo like we had to get on that plane is that wasn't going back in that line. But yeah, so that kid got all his Christmas presents taken away edgy says a chip off the old black. Yeah. Exactly except he wasn't screwing around. He just wanted to be right. We had we flew to Boston for for Christmas. And for some reason, my wife didn't have TSA enters on her ticket, even though she has it. Right. But I had it and my daughter had it where they saw I was like we're good you only need to. But I knew we weren't good. I knew she was going to have to go through. And so we went through they wouldn't let her in. But they let the two kids go with me. And it was hilarious. She was so bad. And then we had clear to cause clear has been kind enough to sponsor the podcast and clear as the best by the way. So we're in in like five. Five seconds. And they were just sitting there. What's your the log lied like go through the thing? And you have to take your shoes off your belt, and she was so mad at us in my asshole Sud is just pointing and laughing and tossing. These are the stories that we used to tell about TSA before Trump shut down the entire TSA. Now, you could just walk on a plane with the bomb. I think they're just doing it for free. Now, I think they can't quit, but they have to do it. So they're not getting paid. But they could they could go on strike though. Right. I think they could I think they could. But they don't thankfully. I'm starting to wonder if he's president he's really warm working into the role. They had the this this article about. You know, like the parks, there's nobody working in parks anymore..
