Americans are fed-up with Biden’s regulations and travel chaos – and they’re making their displeasure known.
From a pilot yelling “Let’s Go Brandon!” over the airplane intercom to Senator Mike Lee introducing the “Stop The Grinch Act” (aimed at Biden being the grinch) – it’s clear Biden is feeling the heat.
But instead of actually reducing the red tape or easing up on mandates – Biden passed an executive order with another “solution” – and you won’t believe what he’s done now.
In order to speed up travel at the airports – Biden could have done a lot of things.
He could have canceled the mask mandate (instead of extending it) – allowing planes to actually take off on time without a rogue flight attendant holding up an entire plane because a scared toddler won’t keep her mask on.
Or, he could have taken power away from the TSA – not allowing them to fine Americans over not wearing the “right mask”.
He could have even relaxed the infamous “liquid limitations” for travelers so airport security moves faster and people aren’t held up because a teen girl has 6oz of hairspray in her bag instead of the “allowable” 3.4oz.
But instead, in his arrogance, Biden insulted Americans everywhere (again)… essentially saying we are all not smart enough to understand how the government “functions”, so he’d make things a little “easier” for us.
“Bureaucracies assume that people understand how they function but it’s really a very complicated web for the vast majority of people, whether they have PhDs or high school education,” the President said from the Oval Office.
“And so today I’m signing an executive order to ensure that the federal government puts you, the American people, at the front of the line.”
The truth is, Americans know how the government “works” – they just don’t like the mandates, invasive tracking proposals, and latest scare-tactics over the newest COVID-19 variant.
We also know politicians are supposed to work for us – not the other way around.
So just how is Biden planning to put Americans at “the front of the line” of his policies?
To start, his solution to help Americans get through security faster means enabling “online chat” with TSA agents.
Yes, online chat with the TSA – you just can’t make this stuff up.
The Department of Homeland Security reported:
“Under today’s Executive Order, the Department’s Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will…
Test the use of innovative technologies at airport security checkpoints to reduce passenger wait times; and, provide new opportunities for the public to more efficiently connect with TSA, including through online chat options, improved communication during additional screenings, and other mechanisms to receive customer feedback to inform future improvements to the customer experience.”
Ok, let’s break down the full scope of what this actually means.
Biden’s senior advisor, Neera Tanden, hinted about the “biometric tools” the TSA would be testing…
… as if somehow more invasive screening processes are a good thing.
Roll Call reported:
“Speaking specifically about the Transportation Security Administration and efforts to improve security lines at the airport, Tanden cited expanding the use of biometric and other tools to help agents process travelers.
“What we’re talking about here are particular technologies that can speed the process along,” she said.”
Of course, everything is vague, and nothing is specific.
And yet again, the TSA is getting even more power…
… as if they aren’t power-hungry enough as it is.
But biometric scanning?
We knew this one was coming, it was just a matter of time.
Federal Newsweek reported:
“The executive order also promises new security machines and computers with “advanced screening features” for the Transportation Security Administration that will result in shorter security and check-in lines at airports. Tanden said TSA is considering biometric scanning as one of the next-generation capabilities to improve wait times at airports.
With King Biden issuing decrees left and right – the only thing certain is more of our freedoms are bound to be stripped away.
But hey, at least you can voice your complaint to a TSA agent via chat, right?
What are your thoughts on new “biometric screening” processes being tested on Americans?
Do you think allowing “online chat” with TSA agents will actually reduce airport security times?
