  • Please . . . Not Another “No Fly” List

    I love Delta Airlines. It is my true hometown airline and I fly it regularly. If any passenger were to act in a way that endangers the flight, the crew, or other passengers, that person should be held accountable by Delta and by federal law if circumstances warrant. But, please, let’s not create another “No Fly” list. Currently, the FBI maintains a classified “terror watchlist” containing the names and information for thousands of individuals the government believes pose a potential terror threat. There is the TSA’s “No-Fly List” that determines who is allowed to board a commercial airplane. The agency...
  • Biden: "White Supremacists Greatest Terrorist Threat" [semi-satire]

    In his first address to a joint session of Congress, President Joe Biden declared that "white supremacists have replaced jihadists as the most lethal terrorist threat to the United States. As we saw on January 6, white supremacists launched the gravest attack on this country since the Civil War. I am asking Congress to join with me in spending $6 trillion to strengthen the country's economy as our first line of defense against these terrorists." Many observers wondered how a disorganized unarmed group that milled about the Capitol for a few hours on January 6th, committed a few acts of...

    On tonight’s broadcast of Tucker Carlson Tonight, the Fox News host referred to Americans being placed on the TSA’s No Fly List by the Biden administration only hours after America First commentator Nick Fuentes revealed that he was added to the list. “There are reports tonight that a number of American citizens including Americans who were at the Trump rally in January, the perfectly legal Trump rally in Washington in January, have been placed by this administration on the No Fly List, meaning they cannot fly domestically,” said Carlson, before noting that his team has not been able to independently...

    Rarely does the government give you a great idea, but today may be that day! It’s reported that the Department of Homeland Security wants to look at citizens’ social media posts and if they do not comply with the government’s narrative, they may be placed on the No Fly List! Wow, that’s an improvement over having the turreted Chris Wray-Mobile visit your house when you are just awakening. When we heard the idea, during an election fraud investigation meeting, we thought it was grand because the people in the room built the technology used for the government’s No Fly List....
  • DHS Preparing to Use Private Contractors to “Scour Public Data and Social Media” To Compile Dissident Citizens for Watch List and No Fly Lists

    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is now getting ready to hire public companies, individual contractors outside government, to scour public data and social media in order to provide information for the new “domestic terror watch lists.” From the description it appears DHS is going to pay “big tech” (Google, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, SnapChat, Twitter, etc.), via contracts, to hire and organize internal monitoring teams to assist the government by sending information on citizens they deem “dangerous.” Gee, what could possibly go wrong with this?… NBC is reporting on these new developments as the U.S. intelligence apparatus is preparing to...

    Delta Air Lines has placed the customers who harassed GOP Sens. Mitt Romney (Utah) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) on its no-fly list, company CEO Ed Bastian told Reuters. The senators were seen in viral videos being heckled by supporters of President Trump after both expressed opposition to challenging the Electoral College certification of President-elect Joe Biden's victory last week.

    While 19FortyFive cannot independently confirm the authenticity of the video, a clip uploaded to TickTok then loaded to YouTube shows a self-described Trump supporter kicked off a flight in what looks like Dulles Airport in Washington, DC (an educated guess as I have flown out of this airport a lot and it looks exactly like it.)

    Pro-Trump rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol should be added to the federal no-fly list, the chair of the House Committee on Homeland Security said on Thursday. The call to ban those who breached the Capitol building from flying came as airlines began to step up security for flights in and out of the nation's capital, and American Airlines ceased serving alcohol on area flights. It also followed reports of passengers demonstrating "politically motivated aggression" on flights to Washington D.C. prior to the riot.

    Members of the extremist Antifa network are flying around the country and participating in riots, Attorney General William Barr said in a new interview. “I’ve talked to every police chief in every city where there has been major violence and they all have identified Antifa as the ramrod for the violence,” Barr said in an appearance this week on CNN’s “Situation Room.” “They are flying around the country. We know people who are flying around the country. We know where they’re going.”

    A man, who just two years ago was the poster boy for the Far Left media attacking the U.S. government's No-Fly list as unfairly targeting Muslims, finds himself and several family members sitting in a Turkish prison -- arrested earlier this month near the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell. It's a long way from 2013 when Saadiq Long's cause was being championed by MSNBC's Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, and Mother Jones, and was being represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) terror front.

    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A former North Carolina police chief whose mother is Italian and father is Somali said Sunday that he’s disappointed with his country of 42 years after he was detained at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Former Greenville Police Chief Hassan Aden of Alexandria, Virginia, who now works as a law enforcement consultant, said he was detained March 13 on his return trip from Paris for his mother’s 80th birthday. He supports the officers of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, but he believes his 90-minute detention was unreasonable, he said in a telephone interview.

    A Welsh Muslim teacher filmed the moment he was made to feel like a 'criminal' when he was hauled off a US-bound flight in front of his students. Juhel Miah, 25, was due to fly to New York from Reykjavik with students from Llangatwg Comprehensive in Aberdulais, Neath Port Talbot, South Wales, when a US official escorted him off the plane in an 'unjustified act of discrimination'. The maths teacher - who has a British passport and a valid visa for travel - was not given a reason, but was forced to stay in a 'horrendous' hotel until school officials...

    Waiting on a routine flight from Sacramento back to Santa Barbara, Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., discovered he was a terrorist. Or at least that’s what the FBI thought. McClintock was clearly more of a frequent flyer than radical extremist. But a classic case of mistaken identity, not ties to terrorism, landed him on the FBI’s no-fly list. A well-known state senator at the time, McClintock was left stranded at the Sacramento International Airport about 10 years ago. He couldn’t fly home under his own name.
  • Why not just strip away all rights of those on watch lists?

    07/03/2016 4:19:58 AM PDT · by UpStateNY · 26 replies
    I’ve heard a lot lately about restricting those on the “terror watch list” or “no-fly list” from purchasing a firearm. I get the appeal, because no logical person wants to enable a bad person to do bad things. But if we’re going to restrict the Second Amendment for these people without due process, why stop at just one amendment if it means saving lives? Should people on a terror watch list be allowed to attend a suspected radicalized house of worship? Why allow them to congregate at all? Why is a person suspected of planning terror allowed to have a...

    Perhaps it is the "No Fly" list itself that we should be investigating? The latest version of the Democrats strategy of denying constitutional rights and due process in the race for a socialist utopia with them in control—is “No Buy, No Fly.” The contention is that anyone on the “No Fly” list should not be able to purchase a gun. No conviction, no due process, no appeal, no knowledge of why you are on the list, no way off the list, and it’s all shrouded in government secrecy, as is all future control of your life. But consider this…

    Greg Nash Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Thursday cut the legs out from a bipartisan effort to keep suspected terrorists from buying guns. In doing so, McConnell, a master of the Senate’s arcane rules, provided cover for vulnerable Republicans who wanted to be seen as supporting the effort, but did not want to cross the National Rifle Association. “The scenario that Sen. McConnell set up was textbook McConnell,” said Brian Darling, a former Senate Republican aide. McConnell had promised a vote this week to Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) on her bipartisan measure barring people on two key...

    Senators on Tuesday rolled out a bipartisan bill aimed at stopping suspected terrorists from buying a gun, as lawmakers try to overcome a stalemate on the issue. "Essentially we believe that if you are too dangerous to fly on an airplane, you are too dangerous to buy a gun," Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) told reporters. The legislation would allow the attorney general to block the sale of a gun if an individual is on the "no-fly" list or the so-called "selectee" list, which requires additional screening at an airport. Collins said the two lists affect approximately 109,000 people, most...

    Omar Mateen’s father and wife were added to the US’ no-fly list as investigators try to determine what role they played in the Orlando massacre in which 49 club-goers were killed and 53 injured. Federal officials have added Omar’s father, Seddique Mateen, and his wife, Noor Salman, to the government’s no-fly list, according to NBC News, although a spokesman for the US Government Terrorist Screening Database would not confirm that. “Disclosure of an individual’s inclusion or non-inclusion in the TSDB or on the No Fly List would significantly impair the government’s ability to investigate and counteract terrorism and protect transportation...

    Attorney General Loretta Lynch overruled FBI Director James B. Comey on Thursday, saying the Obama administration does support a ban on firearms sales to those on terrorist watch lists. Mr. Comey last year had told Congress that the ban could end up alerting suspected terrorists that they are being investigated, and that could “blow” the cases his agents are trying to build. But his superiors at the Justice Department rejected that, issuing a statement Thursday saying they want to see Congress approve the “no-fly, no-buy” plan Democrats are pursuing. “The amendment gives the Justice Department an important additional tool to...

    During a PBS town hall meeting, president Obama was asked why he and Hillary want to control and restrict guns and ammunition to responsible gun owners. Obama's response was the typical stock answer of rejecting the "notion" that anyone is hell-bent on taking away "folks' guns", yada yada. However, as AllOutdoor notes, if you listen carefully to Obama's full response, there is a comment Obama gives about knowing browser history that should sent everyone into a blind rage. "I just came from a meeting, today, in the situation room, in which I’ve got people who we know have been on...
