Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Matteo asks: I fly private, mostly with family, because of no TSA. It is something I budget for and sacrifice other endeavors for because I will not subject my young children to exactly what you pointed out; “we are all terrorists because we need to fly somewhere”.
My children are sheltered and I do not want to expose them to a literal Nazi checkpoint! Your charter carrier runs the passenger manifest long before you board and it cross references the TSA no fly list (presumably) and you simply walk onto your plane. Again, your comments are spot on! If we should all shutter in fear, than why has not one terrorist organization done this in the world? Because the USA is the terrorists. I fly all over the world and the John Perkins book of “Confessions of an Economic Hit man” always are circling in my mind. Also, of note, all the globalists and elitists fly private and they could not be subjected to what us plebeians must deal with of course; when they are the masters of crime and terror.
All my best and thanks for your great work- Would love to have a cocktail and dinner with you and chat more. I am a huge car guy and have a small collection. Cars are that one thing that allows one to disconnect and gives a visceral feeling when behind the wheel.
My reply: Many people have no idea that this “loophole” exists; when I point it out to them to prove that the Heimatsicherheitsdeinst (literally, Homeland Security) and TSA have nothing to do with “catching terrorists” and everything to do with habituating people to arbitrary authority and routine degradation by government goons – so as to make them feel the same way that prisoners feel – I get the deer-in-the-headlights face from most of them.
I then go on to ask them whether they think it is beyond the means and capabilities of real “terrorists” to charter a plane.
The whole thing is absurd – and evil almost beyond words. Perhaps the worst part is the willing complicity of so many people – from the TSA geeks themselves (no one puts a gun to their head; they could seek honest work that didn’t involve treating their fellow Americans like cattle on the way to Treblinka – and that’s no coincidence, either) to the people who don’t have to fly to keep their jobs/feed their families – but do it anyhow. If even 10 percent of “optional” flyers had refused to fly until the TSA was abolished, the TSA would be abolished. But most people will not inconvenience themselves in the least to take a stand for the right thing.
I am gratified to hear that you have – and that your children won’t grow up used to being treated like cattle on the way to Treblinka.
Thank you also for the kind words – and offer! If you’re ever in my neck of the Woods, stop in. I maintain an open door policy – the heterodox and politically incorrect are always welcome!
