Unruly passenger blocked from
cockpit, taped to seat as fighter
jets escort American flight

Chicago Tribune, by Jennifer Sinco Kelleher*

Posted By:Lalo, 5/19/2017 11:36:04 PM

Two U.S. fighter jets were summoned Friday to escort a flight from Los Angeles to Hawaii after an unruly man was subdued by passengers and flight attendants, who used a drink cart to block him from the front of the plane. The man, identified by law enforcement officials as Anil Uskanil, 25, of Turkey, was duct-taped to his seat until the plane landed in Honolulu and federal agents boarded the plane and arrested him, passenger Lee Lorenzen said. "The flight attendants just were really heroic," Lorenzen said. "By the time we landed and the FBI took him into custody,

Maybe airlines should be able to sue the crap out of disruptive passengers - over and above the law enforcement part.

Just wondering what help the fighter jets are in this situation. Are they there to shoot down the airliner if it´s headed for a skyscraper? Or are they just there to dissuade a terrorist from trying to take over controls of the airplane?

The thug was caught in an unauthorized section of the airport, then was allowed to board the flight to Hawaii? Why? To get him out of the CA jurisdiction? What´s wrong with law enforcement? Oh, that´s right. This is Jerry Brown´s let every criminal run free edict.

The FBI shoulda just unbolted the seat and carried him, seat and all, off the plane, thru the airport an to the closest jail cell and left him there for a few days like that to ripen up. He´d be real docile (and smelly) when cut out of it!

I hope that, by now, everyone (at least here) understands that once the aircraft is in the air and pressurized, it is entirely impossible for anyone to open a door.
In fact, if it keeps them occupied, letting them play with the handle is perfectly safe.

The door has to move inward, and the force required is many thousands of pounds due to the pressure differential. Nobody will ever open the door while the pressurization is on, which is essentially all the time the aircraft is in the air, unless the pilot´s intentionally depressurize it from the cockpit. It is a bit like worrying that someone will pick up your car and carry it off. Not going to happen.

After 9/11/01, any passenger who gets out of line after the plane is in the air deserves whatever he gets. This clown possibly put 181 other passengers in danger. The fighters do indeed have the option of shooting the plane down if the passenger gains access to the cockpit and overpowers the flight crew. If the Air Force had been in position to save 3000 people in the WTC by shooting down the two planes, they would have. The fact that we could not imagine anybody committing that horrible atrocity allowed it to happen. Not any more.

Trump told GOP senators to cancel

Circa News, by Mark Hensch    Original Article

President Trump on Wednesday demanded that Republican senators cancel their August recess and keep working on repealing Obamacare. “We shouldn’t leave town until this is complete,” he said at a White House lunch about the Senate’s repeal efforts, according to The Hill. “We should hammer this out and get it done,” Trump added, noting repeal should be followed by new legislation replacing the controversial healthcare law. Trump’s remarks follow the collapse of the GOP senators’ latest plan for repealing and replacing Obamacare Tuesday. Some Twitter users on Wednesday criticized Trump’s treatment of Obamacare, a law he vowed to scrap during

The anger commenced not long after Tuesday’s collapse of the Senate GOP bill to replace Obamacare. The Senate Conservatives Fund promised to "identify, recruit, and fund conservative challengers” to GOP lawmakers who vote against a clean repeal. It’s no empty threat in a Republican Party that’s seen a handful of incumbents defeated — or nearly-defeated — in primaries in recent years. Senior GOP officials spent much of Tuesday surveying the anger and frustration within their own party and taking calls from bitterly disappointed contributors, some of whom threatened to turn off the cash spigot. Senators who refused to support the

Tensions are bubbling over between President Trump and Senate Republicans. White House officials are blaming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for getting stuffed at the goal line on ObamaCare repeal-and-replace legislation, while GOP senators say Trump failed to provide any meaningful political momentum for the prized measure. “He was of no help,” grumbled one GOP senator, who doubted that Trump would have done much to defend lawmakers from political attacks if the bill passed. A member of Trump’s team says their boss bears no responsibility for the embarrassing loss because McConnell was in charge of putting together a

President Trump sat down with Russian President Vladimir Putin for a second discussion at the G-20 summit in Germany this month — a talk the White House never disclosed, according to reports. The talk came hours after their two-hour bilateral meeting on July 7, towards the end of a “couples-only social dinner” at the summit, National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton told CNN. Trump and Putin conversed in the room where the dinner was being held. “No staff or Cabinet were at the dinner at all, for any of the countries,” Anton said, adding that translators were present.

White House blames Democrats for
failure of Republican healthcare bill

Democrats should bear responsibility for the failure of Senate Republicans´ healthcare reform bill, White House deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders said on Tuesday. "They´re responsible for being unwilling to work with Republicans in any capacity" on fixing Obamacare´s flaws, Sanders told reporters at the White House on Tuesday. "The failure of Obamacare, I think, rests solely on the shoulders of Democrats," Sanders said, echoing President Trump´s argument earlier Tuesday that Republicans would not "own" the eventual failure of the Affordable Care Act. Sanders´ comments came one day after two additional Republican senators announced their opposition to the Better Care Reconciliation Act,

Repealing and replacing healthcare is hard, but one conservative member, Rep. Ron DeSantis says the central problem is that a few Republicans like the healthcare law they pretend to hate. "The underlying problem has been that Republicans ran on repealing and replacing Obamacare for years and years," DeSantis, R-Fla., argued during a recent interview in the Washington Examiner newsroom. "But the real divide was that we didn´t have a majority in either chamber that actually want to repeal the law." "You have Republicans who run against Obamacare but actually like Obamacare." After watching Republicans self-cannibalize over healthcare, it´s difficult to

Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Dick Durbin, D-Ill., slammed President Trump´s administration for expanding the number of H-2B visas by 15,000 this year, saying the visas, which are provided to workers in non-farm labor, would hold down wages for U.S.-born workers. "While there may be legitimate needs among employers who rely on H-2B workers in certain sectors of the economy, a growing body of evidence shows that our increasing reliance on the H-2B visa program hurts wages for American workers and puts their jobs at risk. New research suggests that wages in some H-2B fields have been stagnant for

Contrary to what many pundits and politicians are claiming this morning, Mike Lee is not the problem with the Senate’s failed effort on health care. Neither is Jerry Moran. And neither is any other single politician. As we wallow in the aftermath of another utter collapse of the GOP health-care reform effort, there’s more than enough blame to go around; no one is immune from fault in this latest iteration of the ongoing debacle. Regardless of which particular policy outcome you were pulling for this round, heaping all the responsibility on the shoulders of one defector or even a handful

Olivia de Havilland is going to court.

In his made-for-TV hit mini-series, Feud: Bette and Joan, producer Ryan Murphy and his screenwriters included de Havilland (played by Catherine Zeta-Jones) in several episodes, using her name and identity, and giving her lines of dialogue that were gossipy, a bit catty, and disparaging of de Havilland’s sister, Joan Fontaine (the two were estranged for years).

After years of horrific fighting in Syria -- including several failed cease-fires -- it´s hard to get too excited about a limited agreement to stop hostilities in a tiny corner of the country. Yet the modest "de-escalation" deal in Syria´s southwest is a promising sign. Islamic State is not yet defeated. But the cease-fire, reached by Jordan, Russia and the U.S., is an indication that the end of that fight is near, as all sides are beginning to jockey for position in the next stage of the Syrian civil war.

Heading to church one evening in late March, a farmworker and her sister were stopped for speeding in the village of Geneseo, N.Y. They were driving with their five children in the back of the minivan. Two were not in car seats, as required. The police officer, trying to cite the driver for the infractions, discovered she had no driver’s license, so he called Border Patrol to review her Guatemalan passport. Both sisters were undocumented immigrants. They were detained and are facing deportation. Under a Trump administration that has taken an aggressive stance on illegal immigration, the moving car has

The Minnesota cop who shot and killed an Australian bride-to-be opened fire on her after being startled by a “loud sound” near his patrol car, investigators say. Officer Mohamed Noor, 31, began blasting at 40-year-old Justine Damond, of Minneapolis, just moments after he and his partner, Matthew Harrity, heard the noise in the alley behind her house, according to the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The agency provided an update Tuesday on their investigation into the Saturday night shooting. Officers Noor and Harrity had been called to Damond’s home after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault happening

They are going out less often.” Cornell didn’t mention President Donald Trump by name, but he talked about a shift in behavior this year and mentioned “border towns” -- where retailers for years have depended on shoppers from northern Mexico for higher revenue.

Health Reform: There were lots of celebrations on the left side of the aisle after the Senate GOP bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare died. The good times will be short lived, because one way or another ObamaCare is going away, and it´s not at all clear that Democrats will gain additional leverage over what comes next by waiting for its collapse. It was amusing to hear Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer say, after the Senate bill failed, that Republicans should "work with Democrats on a bill that lowers premiums, provides long-term stability to the markets and improves our health care

The sandwich chain says the redesign - which includes a brighter atmosphere, displays of vegetables behind the counter and ordering tablets - is the first major revamp since the early 2000s. The changes will take place as stores around the country are remodeled and new ones are built. The makeover comes as Subway´s sales have fallen for four straight years amid competition from places including Jimmy John´s and Firehouse Subs. Since 2012, Subway´s average annual sales per store are down 13 percent

Dunkirk is a great movie but there aren’t enough ‘women’ or ‘people of color’ in it, according to a review in USA Today. The movie – with a cast including Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and former One Direction singer Harry Styles – has been given a slew of five-star reviews for its vivid, nailbiting depiction of the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk in 1940. But though USA Today’s reviewer praised it too, he couldn’t resist giving it a little rap on the knuckles about its shameful lack of diversity and equality: The trio of timelines can be jarring as you
