Police are rolling out a new technology that would place steel spikes on London’s roads to prevent the vehicle-ramming attacks which have become the favoured method of terrorists in Europe.
Ridiculous rubbish. Stupendously stupid. Preposterous poppycock.
The new measures will be enforced starting July 19 and include:
- Enhanced overall passenger screening.
- Heightened screening of personal electronic devices.
- Increased security protocols around aircraft and in passenger areas.
- The use of advanced technology, expanded canine screening and the establishment of additional pre-clearance locations.
The next time you see Canadian airport security confiscating a half-full bottle of Diet Coke from a confused Saskatchewan grandmother, just remember that you’re not alone in suspecting that this is an utterly flawed system to keep aircraft safe.
In fact, a cadre of security experts would agree with you.
He had lugged the 50 lb bag of Milorganite into the garden in order to discover, as on many prior occasions, that he had nothing with which to open it. He blamed this on the war on terror and the TSA.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) conducted the test last Thursday by sending agents disguised as ordinary passengers into the airport in order to see if screeners were up to snuff, KMSP reported.
Parliament Hill was the focal point of Canada Day, but many people say it was the very thing that ruined the festivities.
Long security lines to get onto the Hill left many people huddled together for several hours. The crowd reached 25,000 by noon Saturday, and ebbed and flowed as the day progressed.
In her speech to Georgetown University students Friday, failed Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said that cutting international diplomacy and aid efforts would “undermine our security.” But Clinton may be the one responsible for undermining security, for far longer than anyone previously thought.
When elected US President Donald Trump issued his first travel restrictions on air passengers travelling from 7 countries where Islamic extremism is rife, there were howls of protest from the usual, big-mouthed, brain-dead libtards about “racism” even though Islam is not a race but a supposed religion of peace (or violent death cult depending on your point of view).
In the 12 days since Donald Trump took the oath of office, a steady stream of social media posts have called for the new president’s assassination.
The posts are pretty basic and many are jokes or sarcastic or hyperbolic — but there are a lot of them. In a Dataminr search of Twitter posts since Inauguration Day containing the phrase “assassinate Trump” more than 12,000 tweets came up.
The U.S. Secret Service, however, or even Twitter and Facebook themselves, doesn’t seem to be jumping onto many of these posts. When we asked several users about their recent “assassinate Trump” posts, all of them said they hadn’t been contacted by anyone about their post and they all remain up.
The scorched moonscape of Nevada’s former nuclear test site will be used for drone radiation detection trials, as the US ramps up an emergency response program in case of a Fukushima-like meltdown or attack on its territory.
This is called foreshadowing.
Amid warnings of a fresh campaign of ISIS terror attacks, Heathrow Airport in London is reportedly considering the implementation of a new security mechanism that is employed at Israel’s Ben-Gurion Airport.
But ‘JV’ and ‘Not a clash of civilizations’. Do you think they’d tell us if they found anything?
Retired Major Stephen Coughlin explains how the US and other Western nations, while pretending to be carrying out “counter-terrorism,” are actually creating tools to attack “far right extremists,” who they view as the “real” enemy.
Grid security has become a major focus for national defense officials in recent years as they worry about hackers causing massive blackouts. Such fears aren’t completely unfounded. Russian hackers recently broke into Ukraine’s electric grid and caused power outages.
Federal officials are also worried about physical attacks on the electric grid, which some fear is vulnerable to attack. Lawmakers share this worry too, especially in the wake of a sniper attack on a California substation in 2013.
At Senate Commerce Committee session, lawmakers heard that only three airports in the United States require their employees to undergo a security check before they begin their work day.
