The JOY of travel read on…

TSA personnel feel as bad about confiscating that family-sized tube of toothpaste you inadvertently put in your carry-on, as you regret losing it.

That’s according to former TSA agents speaking anonymously in a Reader’s Digest article headlined: 13 Things an Airport Screener Won’t Tell You

Among other revelations:

— Not all passengers get equal treatment. Passports from certain countries spark enhanced screenings from TSA personnel.

— To avoid pat-downs, wear clothing with minimal pockets, zippers and buttons, which scanners read as suspicious. Avoid sequins, too.

— Full-body scanners are less intrusive than they once were. Operators used to be able to detect breast implants and hernias, for instance. New equipment tones down the details and reveals only generic silhouettes.

How Deadly Are Germs On A Plane When You Fly?

Oh the “Joy of Travel”!

An excellent article about flying and traveling safely without getting sick.

Airplanes are more disgusting than you ever imagined

There’s nothing worse than hopping on a flight to take a long-awaited summer vacation — only to land in paradise with a nasty cold or stomach bug.

Airplane germs are unavoidable, but experts say there are ways to protect yourself. It all comes down to knowing what you’re fighting against and how to protect yourself.

Around your seat, you’re likely to pick up germs that cause the common cold, flu, staph infections, or norovirus — many of which can live for days, weeks or months on a surface.

In the bathroom, you should be on high alert for E. coli — bacteria often found in fecal matter that can lead to serious infection.

Here’s where you’re most likely to find these germs — and how to protect yourself.

1

Tray table

“Once an airplane drops off its passengers, [flight attendants] may spray [something] or pick up papers, but no one’s cleaning the tray tables,” says Philip Tierno, Ph.D., a professor of microbiology and pathology at NYU School of Medicine, and author of “The Secret Life of Germs.

Be proactive: Dr. Neil Nandi, a gastroenterologist and assistant professor at Drexel University College of Medicine, suggests toting hand wipes that clean and moisturize, and wiping the surfaces around you after you clean your hands. “The first thing people should do when they sit down is wipe down their trays,” says Nandi.

2

Magazines and touch-screen entertainment

Steer clear of this season’s in-flight magazine. If it was published three months ago, that’s likely how long that same copy has been sitting at your seat, collecting countless passengers’ microbes. Touch-screen entertainment systems aren’t much better, but at least they can be sanitized with a wipe before movie-watching.

3

Bathroom door

“The [handle on the] bathroom door is one of the filthiest places,” Tierno says. He suggests dousing your hands in a gel with 60 percent alcohol or higher after returning to your seat, to be safe.

4

Toilet and lid

“When you flush, close the toilet seat,” Nandi says. “Airplane toilets have a powerful suction, but some of the particles [in the toilet] may be dispersed into the air.” To avoid germs on the lid itself, lift it up and lower it with a paper towel or piece of toilet paper to protect yourself.

5

Water faucet and soap dispenser

Think about it: You go to the bathroom, do your business, then turn on the water to wash your hands, depositing germs on the faucet in the process. While both experts suggest washing hands for 15 to 20 seconds, airplane faucets tend to run for less than five, meaning you have to repeatedly touch the germ-ridden faucet to wash for long enough. Nandi suggests tapping it back on with your knuckles, while Tierno reiterates the need for an alcohol gel, even after washing.

6

Paper towel dispenser

Be deliberate when you go to touch something — if you’re reaching for a paper towel, make sure you only touch the towel itself.

7

AC knob on the ceiling

“People are constantly adjusting them,” says Nandi. In other words, the plastic knobs are veritable germ hubs. While you don’t have to worry about a steady stream of bacteria blowing at your face, use a wipe or tissue as a protective barrier if you need to adjust the airstream.

8

Headrest

Comfy headrests “can hide lice,” says Tierno, plus any germs coughed up by previous users. Bring your own pillow or protective barrier.

Sneezing passengers in the row behind you

“If someone … seated in back of you [has a cold], you will get the germs,” Tierno says. Nandi recommends requesting a seat change if there are openings around you: “Changing a few rows may or may not make a difference, but if there’s availability, it’s worth asking,” he says. “You’re not going to offend anyone.”

Is PETA A Terrorist Group?

Is Terrorism in the Eye of the Beholder? Animal Rights Extremists Think So.

The first time California animal rights activist and trauma surgeon Dr. Jerry Vlasak endorsed the murder of scientists who use animals in their medical research (click here for audio), he was speaking as a representative of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). After a U.S. Senate grilling left no doubt that Vlasak was deadly serious, British immigration added him to its “no entry” list.
That’s good news for UK scientists. But the bad news is that Jerry Vlasak is still here in America—and he’s still defending the use of murder as an animal-rights campaign tactic.

Last night in Los Angeles, KABC-TV aired a story about acts of violence perpetrated by anti-science animal rights protesters. The news story included photography of one research scientist’s car, fully engulfed in flames, after animal activists firebombed it. Another researcher showed KABC reporter David Ono an envelope he received in the mail, containing a razor blade along with “threats to cut my throat.”

To a terrorist sympathizer like Jerry Vlasak, who serves as the national spokesperson for the FBI-designated “terrorist”Animal Liberation Front, killing humans to save lab animals is A-OK. In his mind, aspiring arsonists and murderers are modern-day Black Panthers in a new kind of civil rights movement:

“All of these successful liberation struggles have always involved violence or the threat of violence. I would hope that hurting, killing or assassinating would not be necessary. I would say it would be morally justified if all other methods failed.”

Is openly advertising a death-wish for your enemies where terrorism begins? Vlasak doesn’t think so:

“I’m not a terrorist. I don’t think I’ve inflicted terror on anybody who didn’t deserve to have terror inflicted on them.”

Glad we straightened that out. Not only does Vlasak believe that assassination—literally—is morally justifiable, but he’s also pretty sure any future victims have it coming to them.

We’ve reported before that the California Medical Board is (inexplicably) unwilling to review or revoke Vlasak’s medical license. He could be treating patients—and making life-or-death decisions of a completely different kind—at this very moment.

What would happen if a medical researcher with a lab full of mice were in an accident and landed on Vlasak’s operating table? If the good doctor is a ticking time bomb that goes off tomorrow, don’t say we didn’t warn you

 

Dallas Shooter Was A Member Of New Black Panther Party – NBPP Leader Refused To Contact Police About Micah Xavier Johnson Threats Against Black Churches

police-shootings-protest-45f56d9c98383307

The Wall Street Journal By ERIN AILWORTH and DAN FROSCH

HOUSTON—After he returned home from an Army tour in Afghanistan in 2014, Micah Xavier Johnson floated around the fringes of various black nationalist groups in Texas, a solitary figure who would appear at different events but seemed to vanish just as quickly.

The extent of his affiliation with such groups after leaving Afghanistan is still unknown. But it appears his interest in them grew as the issue of police brutality gained prominence with several high-profile deaths and protests.

People associated with activist organizations that interacted with him during this time described Johnson, who killed five police officers in Dallas during a shooting rampage last week, as introverted. And they said he expressed a burning anger toward law enforcement as well as black leaders he felt weren’t doing enough to address police brutality.

Roughly two years ago, he spent about six months as a member of the New Black Panther Nation in Houston, according to Quanell X, who runs the group.

After leaving that group, Johnson also began exploring radical black empowerment movements in Dallas, a city that has long been home to a prominent activist community born out of the city’s history of racial divisions.

Investigators are still scouring Johnson’s background for clues about why he told police in the final hours of his life that he wanted to kill white officers.

Those who knew Johnson in high school and during his military service said he had a racially diverse social circle, and don’t remember him expressing frustration with police.

According to Quanell X, Johnson had sought out his particular group beginning in 2014, traveling from Dallas to attend meetings. At one point, he said, Mr. Johnson told the group he wanted to harm some black mega-church preachers because he considered them to be more interested in money than God. These statements made the group “extremely concerned,” the activist said, and led it to bar him from its functions.

Quanell X said he never reported the incident to police because Johnson never made any specific threats. He said he was contacted by the FBI this week to discuss his interaction with Johnson.

Houston police said they met with Quanell X and other community activists Tuesday to talk about police-community relations. Quanell X said the group discussed the Dallas shootings and Black Lives Matter, but that he didn’t raise Micah Johnson’s onetime involvement in the New Black Panther Nation.

Houston police deferred all questions related to the Johnson investigation to the Dallas Police. A Dallas police spokesperson declined to comment on the specifics of its investigation into Johnson.

Johnson was sent home from Afghanistan in 2014 after a sexual harassment allegation against him and was discharged last year. In an interview with online media site The Blaze, his mother, Delphene Johnson, said her son was disappointed with his military experience, and became a “hermit” after his service ended.

He “liked” several groups on his Facebook page, including several deemed hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil-rights organization that tracks extremist groups.

The New Black Panther Nation isn’t listed as a hate group by the SPLC, nor is Quanell X classified as an extremist by the organization, according to its online database.

Kendrick Colston, a  photojournalist in the Dallas area, said he remembered seeing Johnson at a demonstration in the city held by several black nationalist groups in April to counter a white militia group that traveled to Dallas to protest at a mosque.

On May 14, Johnson attended a ‘Black Power Block Party,’ an event sponsored by a group called the Black Women’s Defense League and held in a North Dallas park, said Mr. Colston, who shared with The Wall Street Journal pictures he’d taken of Johnson at the event. The group isn’t listed as a hate group by the SPLC.

Mr. Colston said he introduced himself to Johnson, watching him try on a dashiki, a traditional West African tunic, which he eventually bought. The two struck up a brief conversation.

“He was real quiet and soft-spoken,” Mr. Colston said. “He said that police couldn’t keep murdering our young black men and women, and being slapped on the back and told they were doing a good job. He said that it was unfair and something had to give.”

Photos of the event portray a festive scene of smiling families and young people, listening to speakers, chatting and posing for pictures.

Johnson, though, appears solemn and serious in several photographs, his fist raised while donning his new garb. In one photo, he sits by himself staring at the ground.

Two weeks later, Johnson attended an event in honor of Malcom X’s birthday at an African-American bookstore in Dallas that serves as a gathering place for local activists. A photo also taken by Mr. Colston shows him wearing the same purple and gold dashiki he had bought several weeks earlier.

Yafeuh Balogun, co-founder of the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, a group that advocates that African-Americans arm themselves for protection against police brutality, said he met Johnson briefly last year. The group also isn’t listed as a hate group by the SPLC.

Mr. Balogun said they met at a demonstration in support of Freddie Gray, who died in Baltimore in 2015 from a broken neck sustained while being transported in a police van. Mr. Balogun said the conversation was simply an exchange of greetings, and that Johnson wasn’t a member of his group.

“We didn’t have any type of connection,” he said, nor did they speak again after.

FRENCH GOVERNMENT HIDES MUTILATIONS OF VICTIMS OF BATACLAN THEATER TERRORIST ATTACK IN PARIS

BATACLAN THEATER TERRORIST ATTACK IN PARIS

The Islamic State terrorists who attacked the Bataclan theater in Paris last November not only killed scores of innocents — they also gouged out the eyes and sliced up the genitals of some of the victims, according to testimony in a disturbing French report.

Some victims’ bodies from the second floor of the theater had been beheaded, eviscerated and otherwise mutilated, according to two secondhand accounts reported to a parliamentary commission set up to investigate the attack.

The investigation’s chair, conservative lawmaker Georges Fenech, complained to the commission that details of the mutilations have been kept from families and the press, according to an online transcript.

Modal TriggerMedics evacuate an injured person on Boulevard des Filles du Calvaire, close to the Bataclan theater, early on November 14, 2015 in Paris, France.

 

He also said he had heard of one especially grievous account: The father of one victim had told him that his son had been disemboweled and castrated, with his testicles found in his mouth.

“They had cut off his testicles,” Fenech said during testimony.

French law-enforcement officials who also testified for investigators insisted, meanwhile, that there was no evidence that victim injuries were caused by anything other than gunfire and shrapnel.

One official, Michel Cadot, the prefect of police in Paris, stressed that no knives were recovered from the scene.

“Some of the bodies found at the Bataclan were extremely mutilated by the explosions and weapons, to the point that it was sometimes difficult to reconstruct the dismembered bodies,” said investigator Christian Saint.

But Fenech stood by his account. “Someone put his testicles in his mouth,” he said.

The torture allegations surfaced in March during some 200 hours of testimony before an investigative committee of the French National Assembly.

The investigation found a lack of coordination among European intelligence agencies, which failed to prevent coordinated attacks that left 130 dead at six locations in and near Paris.

“The bodies have not been shown to the families because they are people who are decapitated, people who are bloated and people who have been disemboweled,” one police witness told officials, according to the transcript.

When Fenech asked if the mutilations would have been videotaped by the terrorists, the witness answered, “It seems to me.”

“There are people decapitated, swollen and disemboweled. There are signs of sexual acts committed against women and knife cuts to genitals. If I am not mistaken, some of the eyes of certain people have been removed,” the witness said.

The witness was later asked by Fenech how he had come to learn of the acts of barbarism. He answered that he himself had only witnessed bodies struck by bullets, on the ground floor.

But he learned the gruesome details from another investigator, whom he found vomiting and crying after seeing the carnage upstairs, he told investigators.

“After the assault, we were with our colleagues at the Saint-Pierre-Amelot corridor when I saw an investigator leaving in tears, who was just about to throw up,” the police witness said.

OUTRAGEOUS! NYU Blames Israel For U.S. Police Shootings

anti-israel

 

The anti-Semitism of NYU students is unbelievable!  The NYU chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine posted on their Facebook page that Israel is responsible for the recent police shootings of civilians because, “many police departments train with the Israeli Defense Forces.”

I am a Federal Law Enforcement instructor for HIDTA and the DOJ. This claim is ridicules.

Wow!

FBI Classify Children As ‘Terrorist Suspects’ and They’re RIGHT!

Domestic Terrorism SERAPH Dale Yeager
Domestic Terrorism SERAPH Dale Yeager

The FBI said that 15 million teenagers in high schools across America should be regarded as potential ‘terrorist suspects’.

While I have serious concerns about the FBI’s Communities Against Terrorism Program, they got one thing right. Radical extremist groups have infiltrated schools in the U.S. and are recruiting pre teens and teens to be soldiers in their aggressive and criminal activities.

Don’t believe me read my white paper on the subject: Negative Behavior Youth Movements in the United States and their Effect on Domestic Terrorism

The FBI explains in the C.A.T.P.  “Preventing Violent Extremism In Schools Guidelines” wants school officials to watch for “statements or actions which cause concern”. Schools should focus on a student’s behaviors and communications,” such as supporting “domestic extremist movements,” international terrorist organizations or hate crimes this would include but not limited to ANIMAL RIGHTS AND ECO‑TERRORISTS, and anti‑government or radical separatist groups.

Well the SERAPH Education division has been teaching this to school administrators for over 20 years.

The new generations of radical extremists are coming out of our public and private schools.

Q: What don’t you know about your children’s school?

Male Bashing Dale Yeager blog

Male-Bashing Is Hurting Women

Male Bashing Dale Yeager blog
Male Bashing Dale Yeager blog

by Cathy Young, Washington Post

Feminist male-bashing has come to sound like a cliché — a misogynist caricature. Feminism, its loudest proponents vow, is about fighting for equality. The man-hating label is either a smear or a misunderstanding.

Yet a lot of feminist rhetoric today does cross the line from attacks on sexism into attacks on men, with a strong focus on personal behavior: the way they talk, the way they approach relationships, even the way they sit on public transit. Male faults are stated as sweeping condemnations; objecting to such generalizations is taken as a sign of complicity. Meanwhile, similar indictments of women would be considered grossly misogynistic.

This gender antagonism does nothing to advance the unfinished business of equality. If anything, the fixation on men behaving badly is a distraction from more fundamental issues, such as changes in the workplace to promote work-life balance. What’s more, male-bashing not only sours many men — and quite a few women — on feminism. It often drives them into Internet subcultures where critiques of feminism mix with hostility toward women.

To some extent, the challenge to men and male power has always been inherent in feminism, from the time the 1848 Seneca Falls Declaration of Sentiments catalogued the grievances of “woman” against “man.” However, these grievances were directed more at institutions than at individuals. In The Feminine Mystique, which sparked the great feminist revival of the 1960s, Betty Friedan saw men not as villains but as fellow victims burdened by societal pressures and by the expectations of their wives, who depended on them for both livelihood and identity.

That began to change in the 1970s with the rise of radical feminism. This movement, with its slogan, “The personal is political,” brought a wave of female anger at men’s collective and individual transgressions. Authors like Andrea Dworkin and Marilyn French depicted ordinary men as patriarchy’s brutal foot soldiers.

This tendency has reached a troubling new peak, as radical feminist theories that view modern Western civilization as a patriarchy have migrated from academic and activist fringes into mainstream conversation. One reason for this trend is social media, with its instant amplification of personal narratives and its addiction to outrage. We live in a time when jerky male attempts at cyber-flirting can be collected on a blog called Straight White Boys Texting (which carries a disclaimer that prejudice against white males is not racist or sexist since it is not directed at the oppressed) and then deplored in an article titled Dear Men: This Is Why Women Have Every Right To Be Disgusted With Us.

Sitting with legs apart may be a guy thing, but there is plenty of visual documentation of women hogging extra space on public transit with purses, shopping bags and feet on seats. As for “mansplaining,” these days it seems to mean little more than a man making an argument a woman dislikes. Slate correspondent Dahlia Lithwick has admitted using the term to “dismiss anything said by men” in debates about Hillary Clinton. And the day after Clinton claimed the Democratic presidential nomination, political analyst David Axelrod was slammed as a “mansplainer” on Twitter for his observation that it’s a measure of our country’s “great progress” that “many younger women find the nomination of a woman unremarkable.”

Men who gripe about their ex-girlfriends and advise other men to avoid relationships with women are generally relegated to the seedy underbelly of the Internet — various forums and websites in the “manosphere,” recently chronicled by Stephen Marche in the Guardian. Yet a leading voice of the new feminist generation, British writer Laurie Penny, can use her column in the New Statesman to decry ex-boyfriends who “turned mean or walked away” and to urge straight young women to stay single instead of “wasting years in succession on lacklustre, unappreciative, boring child-men.”

Feminist commentary routinely puts the nastiest possible spin on male behavior and motives. Consider the backlash against the concept of the “friend zone,” or being relegated to “friends-only” status when seeking a romantic relationship — usually, though not exclusively, in reference to men being “friend zoned” by women. Since the term has a clear negative connotation, feminist critics say it reflects the assumption that a man is owed sex as a reward for treating a woman well. Yet it’s at least as likely that, as Australian-born feminist writer Rachel Hills argued in a rare dissent in the Atlantic, the lament of the “friend zoned” is about “loneliness and romantic frustration,” not sexual entitlement.

Things have gotten to a point where casual low-level male-bashing is a constant white noise in the hip progressive online media. Take a recent piece on Broadly, the women’s section of Vice, titled, “Men Are Creepy, New Study Confirms” — promoted with a Vice Facebook post that said: “Are you a man? You’re probably a creep.” The actual study found something very different: that both men and women overwhelmingly think someone described as “creepy” is more likely to be male. If a study had found that a negative trait was widely associated with women (or gays or Muslims), surely this would have been reported as deplorable stereotyping, not confirmation of reality.

Meanwhile, men can get raked over the (virtual) coals for voicing even the mildest unpopular opinion on something feminism-related. Just recently, YouTube film reviewer James Rolfe, who goes by “Angry Video Game Nerd,” was roundly vilified as a misogynistic “man-baby” in social media and the online press after announcing that he would not watch the female-led “Ghostbusters” remake because of what he felt was its failure to acknowledge the original franchise.

This matters, and not just because it can make men less sympathetic to the problems women face. At a time when we constantly hear that womanpower is triumphant and “the end of men” —- or at least of traditional manhood — is nigh, men face some real problems of their own. Women are now earning about 60 per cent of college degrees; male college enrolment after high school has stalled at 61 per cent since 1994, even as female from 63 per cent to 71 per cent. Predominantly male blue-collar jobs are on the decline, and the rise of single motherhood has left many men disconnected from family life. The old model of marriage and fatherhood has been declared obsolete, but new ideals remain elusive.

Perhaps mocking and berating men is not the way to show that the feminist revolution is about equality and that they have a stake in the new game. The message that feminism can help men, too — by placing equal value on their role as parents or by encouraging better mental health care and reducing male suicide — is undercut by gender warriors like Australian pundit Clementine Ford, whose “ironic misandry” often seems entirely non-ironic and who has angrily insisted that feminism stands only for women. Gibes about “male tears” — for instance, on a T-shirt sported by writer Jessica Valenti in a photo taunting her detractors — seem particularly unfortunate if feminists are serious about challenging the stereotype of the stoic, pain-suppressing male. Dismissing concerns about wrongful accusations of rape with a snarky “What about the menz” is not a great way to show that women’s liberation does not infringe on men’s civil rights. And telling men that their proper role in the movement for gender equality is to listen to women and patiently endure anti-male slams is not the best way to win support.

Valenti and others argue that man-hating cannot do any real damage because men have the power and privilege. Few would deny the historical reality of male dominance. But today, when men can lose their jobs because of sexist missteps and be expelled from college over allegations of sexual misconduct, that’s a blinkered view, particularly since the war on male sins can often target individuals’ trivial transgressions. Take the media shaming of former Harry Potter podcaster Benjamin Schoen, pilloried for some obnoxious tweets (and then an insufficiently gracious email apology) to a woman who had blocked him on Facebook after an attempt at flirting. While sexist verbal abuse toward women online is widely deplored, there is little sympathy for men who are attacked as misogynists, mocked as “man-babies” or “angry virgins,” or even smeared as sexual predators in Internet disputes.

We are headed into an election with what is likely to be a nearly unprecedented gender gap among voters. To some extent, these numbers reflect policy differences. Yet it is not too far-fetched to see the pro-Trump sentiment as fueled, at least in part, by a backlash against feminism. And while some of this backlash may be of the old-fashioned “put women in their place” variety, there is little doubt that for the younger generation, the perception of feminism as extremist and anti-male plays a role, too.

This theme emerged in Conor Friedersdorf’s recent interview in the Atlantic with a Trump supporter, a college-educated, 22-year-old resident of San Francisco who considers himself a feminist and expects his career to take a back seat to that of his higher-earning fiancee – but who also complains about being “shamed” as a white man and voices concern about false accusations of rape.

As this campaign shows, our fractured culture is badly in need of healing – from the gender wars as well as other divisions. To be a part of this healing, feminism must include men, not just as supportive allies but as partners, with an equal voice and equal humanity.
