    You can call Ashley Judd a Golden Globe-nominated actress or a feverish Kentucky Wildcats fan — but don't call her "sweetheart." Judd took to Facebook Live earlier this week condemning employees at an unspecified airport after saying she experienced "everyday sexism" on her way through security Saturday.

    The Department of Justice on Friday released 413 pages of emails related to a controversial private meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch during the FBI’s investigation into then-presidential-candidate Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi emails. The FBI said earlier such records did not exist. This discharge of information is the result of a lawsuit filed against the DOJ by the American Council for Law and Justice (ACLJ) in November 2016. The newly-released emails mostly include DOJ officials’ conversations with reporters, who were seeking comment on the meeting between Lynch and the former president on an airport tarmac in...

    SAN FRANCISCO — In what one aviation expert called a near-miss of what could have been the largest aviation disaster ever, an Air Canada pilot on Friday narrowly avoided a tragic mistake: landing on the San Francisco International Airport taxiway instead of the runway. Sitting on Taxiway C shortly before midnight were four airplanes full of passengers and fuel awaiting permission to take off, according to the Federal Aviation Administration, which is investigating the “rare” incident. An air traffic controller sent the descending Air Canada Airbus 320 on a “go-around” — an unusual event where pilots must pull up and...

    CNN is currently in 47 airports throughout the United States (in gate and boarding areas). This means that many travelers–from Atlanta to New York—are bombarded with a left-wing narrative. Looking to get away? Too bad. You’ll be forced to watch the media’s propaganda in the boarding area. Thanks to CNN, the US airport is now an indoctrination facility that’s designed to keep travelers in a state of despair.

    is only a matter a time. You have to be right 100% of the time — and with Obama importing whole Muslim communities from jihad nations, it is impossible. Which is why we have seen this spike in jihad terror attacks (Chattanooga, Boston, Garland …..). The idea that you cannot profile for jihad is suicidal. It is submission to Islamic supremacism. A Florida man charged earlier this week in an alleged Islamic State-inspired plot to detonate a bomb on a crowded beach was once cleared to work at the Key West International Airport, where his job provided him direct access...

    BOSTON (CBS) – TSA agents have found a number of strange things in luggage over the years, but their latest unusual discovery is uniquely New England. A spokesman shared a photo Monday of a lobster weighing more than 20 pounds. The crustacean was detected in a checked bag in Terminal C (JetBlue) on Sunday morning. Lobsters can travel in either carry-on or checked bags. They’re a common sight at New England airports, but this one was notable because of how large it is. The TSA tells WBZ-TV that the lobster was traveling in a cooler and was alive and well....

    The FBI is investigating as an "act of terrorism" a knife attack on a Michigan airport police officer Wednesday by a man yelling "Allahu Akbar." The stabbing at Bishop International Airport, in the city of Flint, comes amid a wave of jihadist-inspired attacks in Europe, most recently a foiled bomb assault at a train station in Belgium. US officials identified the suspected assailant, who is in custody and cooperating with investigators, as a 49-year-old Canadian resident from Quebec named Amor Ftouhi. "We're investigating this incident today as an act of terrorism," FBI special agent David Gelios told a news conference,...

    Three intelligence sources told The Daily Beast that the ban on carry-on electronics aboard U.S.-bound flights from 10 airports in North Africa and the Middle East was the result of information seized during a U.S. raid on Al Qaeda in Yemen in January. The United Kingdom joined the U.S. ban Tuesday. Information from the raid shows al Qaeda's successful development of compact, battery bombs that fit inside laptops or other devices believed to be strong enough to bring down an aircraft, the sources said. The battery bombs would need to be manually triggered, a source explained, which is why the...

[Snip] "You have a president who was impeached for having an affair with an intern in the Oval Office and then disbarred," said state Sen.
