Thread: TSA abandons Key West Int. airport, potentially stranding thousands in path of Irma

    Exclamation TSA abandons Key West Int. airport, potentially stranding thousands in path of Irma

    Worthless miserable cock suckers.

    If the local "authorities" had any balls, they'd tell the feds and the TSA to $#@! themselves and keep the place open.

    But no airline would risk the liability.

    If I was there, I'd be willing to rent a 182 with as many other people as I could, and pull a "Dunkirk".



    UPDATE 12 a.m. ET Wednesday: According to a report, the Key West International Airport will be forced to close due to the TSA’s decision not to staff security checkpoints. Key West Mayor Craig Cates called the decision “very disappointing.”

    According to a report from FLKeysNews.com, the Key West International Airport will be forced to close Wednesday because Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents will cease screening airline passengers as Hurricane Irma approaches.

    This could be problematic as air travel is one of the few means for evacuation from the area.

    “All commercial flights at Key West International Airport will be canceled from Thursday morning until further notice,” the report stated. “General aviation will continue until conditions become unsafe to operate.”

    So air travel in this country can come to a complete halt if the TSA goons decide they don't want to show up. Noted.

    When it comes to keeping us safe or keeping themselves safe, governments always go into self preservation mode.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    If They’re Afraid of Some Wind and Rain, What Would They Do If They Ever Actually Encountered a Turrist?

    Becky Akers

    https://www.lewrockwell.com/lrc-blog...tered-turrist/

    You’re probably as nauseated as I each time the TSA claims that it “Protects the nation’s transportation systems…”—nonsense that its lapdogs in the corporate media reliably echo. Indeed, said lapdogs often amplify that basic whopper: “… new regulations and technology are designed to make the process a little more secure this year. The Transportation Security Administration was formed two months after the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, to screen passengers and their luggage and keep people safe.”

    Well, turns out the TSA only “keeps people safe” in good weather. Hang onto your blood pressure, because the perverts’ latest trick will send it skyrocketing. Hurricane Irma has frightened the Thieves and Sexual Assailants at Key West International Airport into abandoning their checkpoints tonight, after the day’s last flight leaves at 5:50 PM. Which would be stellar, an absolute win for passengers—except that the agency has also forbidden any further flights from departing. Ergo, “those unable to take one of the few remaining flights out of Key West will have to evacuate by automobile and rely on U.S. Highway 1 from Key West to the Florida mainland as the only available route.” Tellingly, “General [i.e., private] aviation will continue until conditions become unsafe to operate.”

    It seems the TSA needs to revise its “mission”: “Gropes the nation’s passengers except when storms send its cowardly deviants scurrying. In which case we also deprive grown adults of choosing whether to drive through torrential rain or fly, albeit without our grotesque ministrations.”

    When will travelers whom the TSA not only sexually assaults but repeatedly endangers in such situations as this revolt against this demonic bureaucracy? (Thanks to David Mueller for the links.)

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    If this damn storm follows the current path, you might find some cheap real estate.

    Good luck getting insurance though.

    Or building permits.

    The eco nazis have been praying for just such a disaster for years, in order to ban any further new construction or repairs in the Keys.

    from our recent trip, it appeared the upper keys had undergone a lot more devel -- which makes sense since you can evacuate it quicker -- big pine key had virtually nothing new in the past decade. of course the navy properties appeared to have grown significantly

    land has never been overly pricey comparatively, its the permit to build that are expensive. but yeah, we decided canal access and a boat would be a must. although I used to live on a swimming canal (no ocean access) which was pretty cool too. it had decent fishing in it, resident sea turtles and good swimming without having to worry about boats -- I could swim 3 miles just going up and down the fingers in the canal. dw lived on a swimming canal that somebody had aerated and it had a small coral system and abundant fish life.

    Key West is staying open until Thursday evening.

    The only people freaking in the keys are not the conchs. Back in '79 (two lanes highways, railroad trestle bridges) we evacuated for David, stayed for Frederic.

    Big Pine was my favorite place.

    Good luck, brother.

    I did a quick search in KCB where I used to live, same homes, <1000 square feet with no lot space, $400k to $600k.

    But, deep water ocean access.

    but then I remember living in Key West when the creation of TSA was being debated.
    It was a horrible idea.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.
