By Michelle Malkin  •  September 12, 2014 06:49 AM

Post-9/11: Protect the freedom to warn by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 “If you see something, say something.” That’s what our homeland security apparatchiks incessantly preach. But 13 years after the 9/11 attacks, the freedom to warn is in danger and vigilant whistleblowers are under fire. Listen to Robert MacLean. He’s a former Air […]

What happened on United Airlines Flight 944?

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 12, 2011 01:16 PM

In May, I reported on “What Happened on AA Flight 1561.” We should make this a series. Here’s a new one developing… What happened on United Airlines Flight 944? A nutball aboard a flight from Chicago to Germany violates airline security rules and locks himself in the bathroom when passengers are supposed to be seated. […]

TSA follies: See SPOT fail by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2011 Air traffic controllers have been catching a lot of grief for sleeping on the job lately. But do you know what Transportation Security Administration officials have been doing — or rather, not doing — lately? A federal watchdog revealed this week that TSA’s […]

Pilot in Trouble for Exposing Vital Airline Insecurity Secrets

By Doug Powers  •  December 24, 2010 09:36 AM

**Written by Doug Powers We won’t know the final fate of the pilot until James Clapper is clapped-on and alerted to this story at some point next week so he can assist Janet Napolitano in deciding what to do, but from the looks of it, the TSA should be hiring this guy as a consultant […]

Madame Secretary, Would You Let the TSA Touch Your Junk?

By Doug Powers  •  November 21, 2010 01:59 PM

**Written by Doug Powers This morning, Bob Schieffer had Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Face the Nation to discuss invasive airport security screenings that are starting to turn off just about any air traveler who doesn’t show up to the airport wearing a leather hood and a ball gag. When I heard Schieffer ask […]

Clownitano & TSA’s credibility problem

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 15, 2010 12:05 PM

Photoshop credit: Another Black Conservative Readers know I’ve been one of DHS Secretary Janet Clownitano’s most vocal critics — dating back to 2006, when she supported a disgraceful 9/11 memorial in Arizona poisoned by left-wing radicalism, through 2008, when the shamnesty wolf in enforcement clothing was tapped by Obama to head DHS, and, of course, […]

TSA: Touching sensitive areas

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 11, 2010 03:32 PM

I noted the growing brouhaha over TSA’s new, invasive security procedures at the airport compared to the agency’s lackadaisical treatment of illegal alien pilots: Hands-off for law-breakers, hands-all-over for everyone else. The old joke about TSA used to be that it stood for “Thousands standing around.” Now TSA stands for “Touching sensitive areas.” Or, to […]

Airline insecurity story of the day

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 3, 2010 01:14 PM

The San Diego News Network reports that TSA allowed a phony U.S. marshal to log in at San Diego’s international airport with bogus ID, escort a “prisoner” through security, and leave the facility no questions asked: A Hemet man who passed himself off as a U.S. Marshal was able to enter the international airport in […]

Another TB/homeland security debacle

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 27, 2007 05:30 AM

Remember Andrew Speaker? He’s the TB-infected American who was able to slip through several airline security layers and fly around the globe despite being on a no-fly list in May. There were several other TB/security incidents this year that have fallen down the memory hole. Looks like we still haven’t learned anything (via SJMercNews): A […]
