FBI Issues Warning as Holiday Travelers Hit the Road

crew-2231211Nearly 47 million Americans are expected to travel at least 50 miles from home during Thanksgiving week, the most travelers since 2007 and 300,000 more than last year.

 

According to AAA, they’re motivated by an improving economy and the cheapest gasoline over the Thanksgiving holiday since 2007.

If we don’t travel, terrorism wins, if we do remembering back 20 years ago it still was not a pleasant experience.

Look for online shopping to do well.

Reagan fired 11,000 striking air traffic controllers Aug. 5, 1981

On that day in 1981, President Ronald Reagan fired more than 11,000 air traffic controllers who ignored his order to return to work.

The sweeping mass firing of federal employees slowed commercial air travel, but it did not cripple the system as the strikers had forecast.

Two days earlier, nearly 13,000 controllers walked out after talks with the Federal Aviation Administration collapsed.

As a result, some 7,000 flights across the country were canceled on that day at the peak of the summer travel season. (Source)

That, of course, took a huge set of balls which President Reagan definitely had, forget about Obama, while a President Trump, would likely follow in Ronald Reagan’s footsteps.

Setting aside acts of terrorism, these are the world’s safest  airlines and most dangerous airports. (Source)

December 2015: Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, a married Pakistani couple, stormed a San Bernardino County government building with combat gear and rifles and opened fire on about 80 employees enjoying an office Christmas party.

They killed 14 after pledging loyalty to ISIS.

A third Muslim was charged with helping buy weapons.

July 2015:
Mohammad Abdulazeez opened fire on a military recruiting center and US Navy Reserve center in Chattanooga, Tenn., where he shot to death four Marines and a sailor.

Obama refused to call it terrorism.

The warning includes beefed-up security at “softer targets,” like malls, trains, and airports across the country.

 

The FBI has not identified a specific plot and there’s a general belief among law enforcement that ISIS has not sent a cell from Syria to the United States as it did in Paris.

The FBI is focusing, however, on ISIS followers in the United States with 24-hour blanket surveillance.

“We have to go through protocols. Bad guys only have to be right once and that’s something we have to guard against constantly,” said Emilio Gonzalez, director of the Miami-Dade Aviation Department.

For travelers out west, snow may prove more dangerous than any terror threat this week.

“Heading up 80 is not the safest drive, especially going over Donner Pass,” remarked one traveler. “It was a pain. With the conditions like this, it’s hard.”

An Artic cold front is setting the stage for wintry weather across the northwest and southwest.

Winter storm warnings are in place in Oregon, northeast California, northern Nevada, south-central Idaho, and western Montana.

Up to six inches of snow are expected across parts of the Cascades, the Wasatch, the Rockies and the Sierra Nevada.

  1. The time has arrived fir the ISIS and their Muslim cousins to be put on notice.

    STOP your terrorist activities and threats or suffer the consequences.

    Mosques are not sanctuaries for Terrorists and this point needs to be established and enforced here in America.

    America is a free country and Muslims do not deserve special treatment any more so that Christians, Jews or Mormons and others faiths. They are all equal and it is time to call out the Muslims as the problem.

    These radical twist the rules to punish us here in America and that needs to stop.

    Anyone wanting to move to America and live as an American needs to modify their behavior and actions and beliefs to conform to America laws. Like it or not the U. S. Constitution is the Law of the Land in America.

    The Rule of law is clearly defined here in America and Sharia Law does not belong in America.
