Former Newark Airport TSA screener
says the job does little to keep fliers safe

New York Post, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 3/10/2013 8:15:55 AM

It is perhaps America’s most unsafe airport. Despite being the launching point for one of the planes hijacked on 9/11 — Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania — Newark Airport has had numerous security violations since. The latest: a fake bomb that made it past Transportation Security Administration officers. Here, a Newark TSA screener who recently left the agency tells how silly policies and lazy workers do little to stop real threats: A LOT of what we do is make-believe.

DUHHHH, ya think? Wow, Capt. Obvious, when did you wake up?
Anybody with half a grain of sense knows full well that all the security shenanigans that "keep us safe" are, at best, security theater aimed at pacifying us poor frightened citizens, and at worst, a careful stripping of our dignity and rights as free and proud Americans.

There hasn´t been a successful hijacking in nearly twelve years. Take a bow, TSA? NO! Take a bow, pax of Flt 93. The rules changed that dreadful morning. ince then, courageous passengers and crew members have intercepted and immobilized every single one. Meanwhile, TSA continues to stick its blue-gloved hands down the pants of old ladies, and snatch bottles from babies.

And we tolerate it, That is outrageous.

At Reagan International in Washington My wife´s purse /shoulder bag once passed through the screening machine while the screener and her assistant were both looking at the screeners smart phone and laughing. Neither bothered to watch as the bag passed through. TSA is just a jobs program .

Thank you, George Bush. It´s called "security theater." What keeps fliers safe, at least in the cabin, are ordinary people of all shapes, sizes, and ages willing to leap on anyone who seems to present a threat.

I never feel as such tension as on line at the screening. A private remark made to my wife could have us arguing with idiots and missing our plane.
It must similar to the silence when German soldiers barged into people´s homes looking for contraband.

The Patriot Act, TSA, DHS should all go away. Allow CCW holders to carry on planes (no alcohol for them though), privatize security and let the airlines pay for that (increase in ticket prices) and do away with (forever) PC. If that were done, I might start flying again, as it is, I really hate the Gestapo and don´t want to be any where near them.

Clearly the real security is supplied by the passengers who now know that being passive is not any protection. Flight 93 showed that people will step up when they have to.

Making aircraft a weapons-free zone does the same thing that all other weapons-free zones do - make safer working conditions for evildoers that manage to evade the rules.

The concept of safety in a weapons-free zone is a simple minded, childish fantasy and we should not let these ´secuity experts´ sell this fantasy any longer.

A) they´re so good, they´ve scared all the terrorists away B) They´re incapable of identifying terrorists who pass through everyday C) They´re a marvelous new addition to the public employee union Democrat slush fund, and have nothing to do with airport security.

#7,#9,#10 and others have it right. Abolish the TSA, and privatize airline security with FAA or other government oversight only.

The lesson of Flight 93 has done far more to ensure passenger safety than anything the TSA union types have ever done. Get rid of them.

I retired from TSA after 10 years of service. I was often chastised for not being "tough" enough on old ladies and little kids. Yet, I received MANY customer service awards because I respected my passengers and used common sense.

That being said, the Supervisors were usually decent and well-meaning. It was the "Suits", the MANAGERS that were the villans. These people are looking for promotion to a higher pay position.

This article had some errors, however. Federal employees get 4 hours of sick time for every 80 hour pay period, not 40. Leave (vacation) is based on Federal service:

3 years or less - 4 hours per pay period
3 to 15 years - 6 hours
15 to ??? - 8 hours

I was astounded by the uniform costs in the latest contract with VF Solutions. There are about 36,000 actual uniformed personnel at TSA. My last uniform allowance was around $200 for the year. What´s up with this?

The TSA show of force is nothing more than kabuki theater. Anyone with half a brain can outwit their tactics.
And now there is this program called "Known Crew Member" where anyone in a "uniform" can pass through without having to go thru a scanner. This is a travesty!
I can´t travel with my shampoo or food for my precious baby and some swishy guy or broken down old b***ch in a uniform can walk through security without scrutiny??? We can save the bureaucracy a lot of dollars by eliminating security.
Those with weapons that do get onboard will save those without, and as a side benefit those nasty Steward & stewardessses will be forced to treat passengers nicer.

Newark´s security was a joke before 9/11 and the TSA and it didn´t surprise me that one of the 9/11 flight was out of Newark. In fact, before 9/11 I had actually flown the United 93 route to Japan (it went from Newark to San Francisco and then on to Narita and then somewhere in China) and remember watching bags rolling by as the x-ray operator turned away from the screen to have a chat with a co-worker without stopping the conveyer. So, basically, nothing has changed there.

Obama looks to close wage gap while

President Barack Obama is planning to sign two new executive actions aimed at narrowing the wage gap between men and women Tuesday, even as the Obama White House pays its female staffers less than men.The first executive action will be an order banning federal contractors from retaliation against employees who disclose or ask about their wages, according to reports. His other executive action will require federal contractors to submit data to the government about their employees compensation by sex and race.

Fears that high-speed traders have been rigging the U.S. stock market went mainstream last week thanks to allegations in a book by financial author Michael Lewis, but there may be a more serious threat to investors: the increasing amount of trading that happens outside of exchanges.Some former regulators and academics say so much trading is now happening away from exchanges that publicly quoted prices for stocks on exchanges may no longer properly reflect where the market is. And this problem could cost investors far more money than any shenanigans related to high frequency trading. When the average investor, or even

After his health-care law surpassed the low-ball enrollment target of 7 million, President Obama staged a Rose Garden rally and zinged doubters: “Armageddon has not arrived.” At least he did not declare: “Mission Accomplished.”The country is years from knowing whether Obama’s overhaul of the health-care system fulfills the promise of delivering universal coverage.While large numbers of Americans have found the program very advantageous, including people who were formerly uninsured, many others have been forced to change plans or change doctors — contrary to Obama’s repeated promises.Obama tacitly admits the unintended consequences every time he waives a deadline or mandate in

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

In Texas, political opposition to President Obama’s health law is so strong that some residents believe, erroneously, that the program is banned in their state.But in Connecticut, a smoothly functioning website, run by competent managers, has successfully enrolled so many patients that officials are offering to sell their expertise to states like Maryland, which is struggling to sign people up for coverage.

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
