Are you ready for airport security
checks–Just to enter a hotel?

Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 10/4/2017 12:26:20 PM

Stand by for security pat-downs just to enter your resort hotel. It didn’t take long after Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas for resort hotels there to begin implementing new, far more strict security screenings simply to enter the building. Hotel guests at Wynn’s resort stood in line with a 10-minute wait to be screened. That’s likely to become a new normal as the country’s worst mass shooting forces major tourist meccas to radically re-imagine potential threats and expand their thinking about security against a new range of threats. As they did at any airport before boarding their flights to Vegas this week, patrons of Wynn’s

So a paying customer that is staying in a hotel for days or weeks, is going to get accosted everytime they come in to go to their room? Sounds like a PR nightmare that will accomplish nothing, somewhat like TSA at airports.

Anything which increases the intrusive and ham-fisted power of government is a victory for the Left. Likewise, anything which suppresses economic activity, travel and Liberty is another victory for the Left.

It may have been a lot of trouble for the Left to set up this attack and they, by Gawd, mean to profit from it.

My advice would be to just leave your shoes off after you´re probed in the lobby and be glad that you can relax faster when you get to your room.

No, I am not ready for it. I resent being treated as a terrorist at an airport or hotel, all because the left will not profile, arrest, and deport terrorists, suspected or not. The left prefers to put us in jail, rather than those that commit terrorism.

How this affects me, one individual who has been staying at hotels four or five nights in a month: intrusive security checks at the front door of hotels will result in my using a hotel only when absolutely necessary. And, no, I do not own a gun.

This will be temporary until they can devise a new security plan. The casinos really let security slide the last few years. I expect to see some type of luggage screening.

It will seriously kick me off. I always travel with at least one firearm, often two or three. and I always take them to my hotel room, because I won´t leave them unattended in my truck, where they would be vulnerable to break-in and theft. You want your unintended consequences? I think you´re going to find them, right here.

The high courts have, since the early 1970s, OK´d an "administrative exception" to the 4th Amendment with regard to airport pre-board security screening. The courts recognized a "compelling public interest" in screening passengers and their baggage in the civil aviation context. Unlike casino hotels, public airports are federally regulated and subsidized; hence, the need for the 4th Amendment "exception." Hotel screening of "guests" is not a government requirement, so the 4th Amendment wouldn´t apply to what is essentially a business requirement to stay at or gain entrance private property. Hotel screening that does not include employees and/or delivery and service personnel is essentially theater. Metal detecting hand wands and transmission X-Ray machines are useless in detecting explosives and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). Since Lockerbie (Pam Am 103) in 1988, the US government has fostered the development of highly effective explosives detection devices using computed tomography (CT), re-purposed from the medical industry. As is said in the aviation industry, having TSA security screening at airport checkpoints is like putting an iron door on a grass hut. The hotel screening described in the article appears to be even less effective but highly disruptive.

More intrusive eye-wash. So after you get groped at the airport and delayed for hours on the tarmac, you rent a car and get it again at the hotel.
To be effective it would have to be every time you return to your room. Even just getting ice or going to your car.

They may try it, but I´ll stay home, thank you. We stopped flying 12 years ago.

I can stay away from hotels also. There are motels, and there is sleeping in the car.

Who knew when that walking tattoo billboard discovered social injustice in America last winter what a kneeling mess it would become for NFL players, the league and owners. The emotional controversy touches on patriotism, the flag, veterans, fallen troops, invited a tweeting president to stoke the flames, slashed TV ratings and, once again, aimed fire at Roger Goodell.

Any human communications can be tricky, polluted by bias, expectations, assumptions, many things. Nowhere are such communications more delicate — or important — than between media and political leaders in a free society, in this case the Trump White House and the press corps assigned there to gather and deliver accurate news to Americans. Chief of Staff John Kelly gave his first news briefing Thursday, a refreshingly genial, candid and succinct appearance for the Trump White House.

President Trump’s decision to decertify the Iran nuclear deal may or may not accomplish anything with that rogue nation’s ambitions to develop weapons of mass destruction and sow regional rebellion. But it certainly hands Congress a very hot falafel. It’s a similar move to Trump earlier this year handing over to Congress the DACA mess, aimed at deporting the grown children of illegal immigrants. ‘Here, I did my part, you guys handle throwing these folks out.’ Both moves allow Trump to check off two more campaign promises.

The clock is ticking. It’s getting closer. Only 1,118 days until Election Day in 2020. So, naturally pollster thoughts turn to Nov. 3, 2020 and how the most clickable, news-making political personality in a long while might do. Oh, sure, worry warts and precision proponents will suggest a few things might occur to affect voters’ decision between now and then.

Golf magazine is suggesting President Trump may have been an unknowing party to some fake news, of the real golfing variety. On Monday, a federal holiday, the commander-in-chief invited a former competitor for the GOP presidential nomination, Sen. Lindsey Graham, out for some golf at the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia. [Snip] According to Graham, the two men talked nothing but golf on the front nine, then got down to more serious business on the back nine — North Korea, immigration, Iran. But that’s not what became news. What became news was Graham’s ensuing afternoon tweet: “President Trump shot

While the nation was justifiably consumed with the awful human ravages of hurricanes and a wealthy, crazed sniper in Nevada, the most important deadline of the young Trump presidency suddenly looms: Certifying whether Iran is complying with the leaky nuclear deal “negotiated” by the Obama administration. [Snip] If you don’t know Trump despises the deal, you haven’t been listening these past two years. Most recently, he told everyone at the United Nations: “Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States and I don’t think you’ve heard the last of it, believe me.” We believe him this time.

Pretty soon, it could be NFL team owners on their knees begging TV viewers to come back. Once again in Week 4 of the 2017 season, as players continued their sitting-kneeling protests against something, former fans silently exercised their right of free speech using TV remotes. Despite the always insightful, candid commentary of Jon Gruden, this week’s Monday Night game on ESPN lost audience again. It was actually a pretty good game, by all accounts. [Snip] This game though drew 13% fewer viewers than last week. And the drop was worse — 16% — in the key demo that ad

The media news narrative exiting Alabama’s GOP Senate runoff was that the selection of firebrand Judge Roy Moore as the Republican candidate for the December general election will probably cause radical changes in his party’s control of the U.S. Senate. Hold on. There are certain to be changes that complicate Republicans’ midterm election outlook. But they’re actually due to a variety of unusual reasons including chronic party disunity, not just Moore’s likely arrival on Capitol Hill come January.

Some Georgia high school football players had an inspiring little protest of their own this weekend. And it involved running, not kneeling. While pro National Football League players were locking arms and taking a knee across the country to protest someone or something or other, these high school players decided to exercise their freedom of speech a little differently in their country by celebrating America instead of criticizing it. The entire Fannin County Rebel team ran onto the field together, each player carrying a large U.S. flag. The patriotic display happened before their game with the Greater Atlanta Christian School

Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so.

Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to

Jimmy Kimmel says he’s laid off the Harvey Weinstein jokes because he’s not the “moral conscience of America” (there’s also a video of him asking young women to guess what’s in his crotch. And suggesting they feel it and put their mouths on it).Famously, NBC is playing shy about the scandal, having refused to broadcast the detailed exposé by Ronan Farrow, who took it to the New Yorker which did publish it. The story has laid bare the hypocrisy of the media giants, Democratic biggies, and the Hollywood virtue signalers.

Kaepernick has hired high-profile attorney Mark Geragos and is preparing to release a statement about his grievance soon, added Freeman. The free-agent quarterback has remained unemployed since his release by the San Francisco 49ers in March and has garnered little interest from teams around the league. This has caused some to suggest he´s being blackballed for his national anthem protests during the 2016 season. Kaepernick appeared in 12 games for 49ers in 2016, throwing for 2,241 yards with

The Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com it will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from Harvey Weinstein, saying on Sunday the money had already been spent on the organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes. The foundation’s decision comes as politicians and philanthropic groups grapple with whether to return donations they have received from Weinstein, after numerous women stepped forward this month to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assault, harassment and rape. Over a dozen Democratic politicians have said they will give back or donate Weinstein’s campaign contributions to charity. The Clinton Foundation faced questions about Weinstein’s funding after Hillary Clinton

“Where’s the president?” asks the editorial board of the San Fransisco Chronicle, as California burns. Well, it knows where President Trump literally is: the White House usually, if not one of his resorts. The newspaper board means where is he on Twitter — or as the board says, “How many times has Trump tweeted about the fires since they were whipped by winds into life-threatening force early Monday: zero.” Zero, true, as of early Sunday evening. As the Chronicle notes, Trump did speak once, offline, about the fires. A few days ago, he promised to “stand with” Californians and said he’s in touch with the governor —
