In recent undercover tests of multiple airport security checkpoints by the Department of Homeland Security, inspectors said screeners, their equipment or their procedures failed more than half the time, according to a source familiar with the classified report.
When ABC News asked the source if the failure rate was 80 percent, the response was, “You are in the ballpark.”
Hey SWJs (social justice warriors), check out this history of communist China:
Horrified by images of American students shouting down and physically attacking speakers on their campuses, some commentators have reasonably invoked memories of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. The problem with that analogy is that it is simply lost on most readers, including most younger than middle age.
So what exactly was this “Cultural Revolution” thing anyway? The U.S. media does a wonderful job of recalling atrocities that they can associate with the Right, while far worse horrors stemming from the Left vanish into oblivion. In reality, not only does the Cultural Revolution demand to be remembered and commemorated, it also offers precious lessons about the nature of violence, and the perils of mob rule.
In 2019, Communist China will celebrate its seventieth anniversary, and in that short time it has been responsible for no fewer than three of the worst acts of mass carnage in human history. These include the mass murders of perceived class enemies in the immediate aftermath of the revolution (several million dead), and the government-caused and -manipulated famine of the late 1950s, which probably killed some 40 million. Only when set aside these epochal precedents does the Cultural Revolution of 1966-76 seem like anything other than a unique cataclysm.
Emphasis is mine.
This lesson of insane mob rule is also a prime reason to own firearms and how to use them for self defense.
Moments after Donald Trump won the presidential election, Californians took to Twitter to make clear they want to secede from the United States.
“Calexit” has been trending on social media — reminiscent of the Brexit movement to leave the European Union — and some protesters are planning to assemble on the capitol steps in Sacramento on Wednesday.
Go, Please! And take NY, IL, and MA with you.
Seriously, I have believed that succession is the solution for some time now.
One of the ugliest election seasons ends, finally.
One of the best outcomes is the end of the Clinton machine!
Trump beat Hillary, and the Republicans held both the Senate and the House of Representatives. The US has not had one party control of all these in some time, I think it was when Ronald Reagan was elected in 1980 – I’m guessing I did not look it up. Anyway the Republicans will get to make Supreme Court appointments unchallenged for the next 2 years, a big win for the Right to Bear Arms folks (of which I am one).
Arizona went for Trump, but it was super close. The 3rd party folks got a few percent of the vote here. AZ used to be very Republican, I am surprised how much has changed. We had a recreational marijuana proposition on the ballot, the result on it is still too close to call. I voted yes, it should be treated just like alcohol. I’m not a pot user myself, but many are so why make them petty criminals?
Results by demographics from exit polls are here. I am really interested to see some final numbers on these. My guess is white turnout was higher than the polls expected, giving Trump the win and fooling the pollsters and mainstream media.
Wonder what would happen if neither Trump nor Clinton gets 270 or more electoral votes? This is possible, though unlikely. Remember there are 2 minor party candidates running.
The quick answer is the US House of Representatives decides the president if this happens. And the Republicans control the House.
