The Gateway Pundit

A TSA agent groped and searched under Brian Kolfage’s hips, buttocks, groin and his half arm searching for what exactly? In addition to groping Kolfage, agents also swabbed his prosthetic legs and wheelchair for explosives.

 

 

Tucson’s metro core is extremely liberal and for open borders. Hillary Clinton won Tucson in 2016 — Trump won the outlying areas of Tucson.

Radical open borders groups such as La Raza have infected Tucson along with illegal alien invaders yet a triple-amputee veteran who served this country is groped and humiliated.

A concerned bystander caught the groping on video and told The Gateway Pundit that an observer was so disgusted by what the TSA agent was doing to Mr. Kolfage that they had to walk away due to disgust and anger at seeing a war hero subjected to such embarrassment.

The Gateway Pundit reached out to Brian Kolfage for comment after he was groped by TSA on Saturday.

Mr. Kolfage told The Gateway Pundit, “It’s unfortunate that every time I travel I get a full search and swabbed for explosives. It’s the times we live in. I understand the security concerns but it’s not TSA’s fault, it’s the policy makers in DC who have no clue what the real world is like; it’s a joke. It’s the same people who think there’s no issue at our border.”

“It’s amazing how our government is so worried about airport security with a triple amputee veteran in a wheelchair but everyday thousands of illegals are coming into our nation unchecked and killing Americans. I guess they turn a blind eye to them like they have to all the angel families,” Kolfage added

Kolfage added, “The policies of TSA are so bad, they have caused a charity to be formed for wounded vets to fly on private planes so we don’t have to deal with the full cavity searches and removing of prosthetics. That’s why I usually fly Veterans Airlift Command”  https://www.veteransairlift.org/

Brian Kolfage set up a GoFundMe page to build the border wall and it has surpassed $20 million in donations with over 350,000 donors!

Stossel: NYC Government Traumatizes Gun Owners

If you have a gun, don’t fly out of New York with it! Almost every week, New York City arrests someone who brings a gun to the airport–even when the person has a gun license from their state, notifies authorities about the gun and follows TSA procedures for flying with it. John Stossel interviews people who were arrested and confronts the assistant district attorney who prosecutes them.

TSA Failures Keep U.S. Train System Vulnerable to Terrorist Attack

JUDICIAL WATCH

The nation’s train system remains dangerously vulnerable to a terrorist attack because the agency created after 9/11 to protect it hasn’t bothered implementing crucial security measures, including performing background checks on frontline railroad employees. You can’t make this stuff up. A decade and a half after Islamic terrorists used commercial planes to carry out the worst attack on American soil, the government can’t seem to fulfill its obligation to adequately protect all transportation systems.

It involves the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the famously inept multi-billion-dollar agency created by Congress to secure the nation’s transportation system after the 2001 attacks. Judicial Watch has reported on a multitude of TSA transgressions over the years and sued the agency to uncover documents detailing sexually-related assaults on passengers by agents at three major U.S. airports. Over the years the TSA has made headlines for missing weapons and bombs during test security checks, hiring an accused child molester without a background check, clearing flight training for illegal immigrants, letting terrorists slip past its highly trained behavior detection officers and failing to properly vet airport workers with access to sensitive areas. A few years ago TSA missed a piece of luggage that somehow got on a commercial plan and exploded after landing in south Florida. The list of transgressions goes on and on.

In this latest case, an audit conducted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Inspector General reveals that the nation’s passenger train system-known as Amtrak-has been treated like a stepchild when it comes to security. This is worrisome, the watchdog points out, because recent global events highlight the vulnerability of rail systems to terrorist attacks and the importance of security for passengers. As an example, the DHS IG lists in its report the August 2015 incident in which armed gunman terrorized a passenger train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris. The plot inspired two members of Congress to request that the TSA provide an update on the state of domestic rail security, including the implementation of recommendations made by the 9/11 Commission. It’s not pretty. The agency has neither implemented 9/11 Commission requirements or key passenger rail requirements, according to the IG.

This is a major transportation system with 300 trains that travel throughout 46 states and Canada with about 31 million passengers annually. Legislation passed after 9/11 requires the TSA to take a number of rail security measures that the agency has evidently blown off. Among them is a national railroad security strategy, assigning rail carriers to risk-based tiers and creating a training program for rail carriers. The TSA is also supposed to perform background checks for frontline railroad employees as it’s supposed to do for airport workers. Why is this bloated agency dragging its feet? Investigators reveal in their findings that the TSA is blaming it all on the “complex federal rulemaking process.” Keep in mind it’s been eight years since legislation was passed mandating the agency to create a system to protect passenger trains.

It’s not like money hasn’t been allocated to railroad security but the absence of a concrete, organized plan has resulted in waste while the system remains vulnerable. Back in 2011 JW reported that DHS gave Amtrak more than $1 billion to bolster security but the money wasn’t spent efficiently to adequately protect the most vulnerable stations. This occurred because DHS simply doled out the cash but never followed up to ensure it was being properly and effectively spent on security. DHS never required Amtrak to develop a corrective action plan to address its biggest vulnerabilities, approved lower risk projects and didn’t document roles and responsibilities for the grant award process, according to a federal audit. “As a result, some rail stations and the traveling public may be at a greater risk to a potential terrorist attack,” investigators determined. This was five years ago and it seems that little has changed amid growing threats of a terrorist attack.

Belgian Soldiers Deployed to Fight Terrorists Had No Bullets in Rifles

Much of counterterrorism is really security theater. TSA searches that have yet to stop a terrorist. Bombing raids that don’t drop bombs. Soldiers standing with rifles that have no bullets in them. It looks impressive. But there’s no substance behind it.

Rabbi Menachem Hadad of Brussels’ Shomre Hadas haredi Orthodox community said that soldiers who were posted outside a synagogue and the city’s Chabad House following the slaying of four Jews in Brussels’ Jewish Museum of Belgium in 2014 told him that for months, they used to guard the area with no bullets in their rifles. “It was just a show.”

Of course it’s just for show. Anything else would be too much. Western governments don’t want to actually stop Islamic terrorism. They want to look like they’re trying.

It’s not just Obama. It’s the whole system.

After every terror attack, there’s security theater. Empty reassurances that the guys running everything are really taking it seriously. But there’s no there, there. Instead they’ll keep on bringing huge numbers of Muslims, creating the next wave of terror, even while they put on a show of being serious about the latest attack.

Being serious about Islamic terrorism means ending Muslim migration. Any government that doesn’t want to do that is also not going to do much to fight Islamic terrorism except go through the motions.

Amid Security Failures DHS Spends $20.3 Mil on Conferences

 

JUDICIAL WATCH

While it let Islamic terrorists enter the country, wasted huge sums on faulty equipment and failed miserably to remove criminal illegal aliens, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was busy blowing $20.3 million to host 1,883 conferences last year.

It’s the inconceivable tale of the colossal agency-with practically unlimited funds-created after 9/11 to prevent another terrorist attack. The agency’s various components include Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the scandal-plagued Secret Service and the famously inept Transportation Security Administration (TSA), to name a few. In 2015, DHS asked Congress for an astounding $38.2 billion to continue its “commitment to the security of our homeland and the American public,” according to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson.

Lost Badges Used to Enter Secure Areas at Airports

JUDICIAL WATCH

In the latest scandal to rock the beleaguered Transportation Security Administration (TSA), badges that allow agents to access secure areas of airports are missing along with uniforms and other devices used to control entry.

Judicial Watch has obtained records that show the TSA, which was created after 9/11 to secure the nation’s transportation system, has reported hundreds of lost, stolen or missing badges since 2012. It’s part of an ongoing JW investigation into the massive agency, which functions under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with a multi-billion-dollar budget and more than 60,000 employees. Earlier this month JW obtained records that detail alleged sexually-related assaults on passengers by TSA personnel at three major U.S. international airports.
