Skimming headlines, this one made me suspicious because it was completely redundant. Peeking into the details, I confirmed the inevitable: the Biden administration is already reaching out to the forming World Government, offering it total control of our transportation sector.
TSA to require masks at screening checkpoints as new strains of COVID-19 hit the US
By Michael Hollan, 31 January 2021
As new strains of COVID-19 appear across the US, officials are making masks a requirement for travelers.
The acting secretary of Homeland Security directed the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to take steps to protect passengers and employees in the transportation system. This will include expanding the areas where people must wear masks while traveling.
Umm… isn’t that already 100% of all public transportation areas? I flew last summer and they only grudgingly allowed me to even use the bathroom.
Acting Secretary of Homeland Security David P. Pekoske announced that a National Emergency Determination had been made to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. According to the announcement, this new determination stems from a previous determination on March 13th, 2020, that the spread of COVID-19 constitutes a national emergency.
They even reference the document that created the situation that they already solved, that they just solved again? Maybe this is just because it’s a new President?
The determination grants the TSA certain authorities required to implement an executive order issued by President Biden on January 21, titled the “Executive Order on Promoting COVID-19 Safety in Domestic and International Travel.”
According to a statement from the public affairs office of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the TSA will be requiring individuals to wear a mask at TSA screening checkpoints. Masks will also be required throughout the commercial and public transportation system.
We’re already doing that. What a waste of an article!…? Time to look at that Executive Order.
Executive Order on Promoting COVID-19 Safety in Domestic and International Travel
Section 1. Policy. Science-based public health measures are critical to preventing the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) by travelers within the United States and those who enter the country from abroad.
Of all the SJWs’ many skin suits, !Science! is probably the smelliest. But it’s their only choice. They have no god to appeal to, only “we so smart!” and “inevitable Progress!”
Sec. 2. Immediate Action to Require Mask-Wearing on Certain Domestic Modes of Transportation.
(a) Mask Requirement. The Secretary of Labor, the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Secretary of Transportation (including through the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)), the Secretary of Homeland Security (including through the Administrator of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Commandant of the United States Coast Guard), and the heads of any other executive departments and agencies (agencies) that have relevant regulatory authority (heads of agencies) shall immediately take action, to the extent appropriate and consistent with applicable law, to require masks to be worn in compliance with CDC guidelines in or on:
(ii) commercial aircraft;
(iv) public maritime vessels, including ferries;
(v) intercity bus services; and
(vi) all forms of public transportation as defined in section 5302 of title 49, United States Code.
The highlighted means this EO has nationalized control of all public transit at every level in the United States, from the city bus to bicycle paths. Local governments are no longer in control of their own infrastructure. De facto martial law.
Sec. 3. Action to Implement Additional Public Health Measures for Domestic Travel.
(a) Recommendations. The [Secretary of Transportation, the FAA, the Secretary of Homeland Security, the TSA and the Commandant of the Coast Guard), in consultation with the Director of CDC, shall promptly provide to the COVID-19 Response Coordinator recommendations concerning how their respective agencies may impose additional public health measures for domestic travel.
That’s the Final Countdown, folks. You will not be allowed to leave your home without complying with every single bureau of the Federal Government… funneled through the ‘health director” office.
For your health, you see. It’s not healthy to disobey your government. Coof might get you.
Sec. 5. International Travel.
(b) Air Travel.
(iii) The Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of HHS (including through the Director of CDC), the Secretary of Transportation (including through the Administrator of the FAA), and the Secretary of Homeland Security, shall seek to consult with foreign governments, the World Health Organization, the International Civil Aviation Organization, the International Air Transport Association, and any other relevant stakeholders to establish guidelines for public health measures associated with safe international travel, including on aircraft and at ports of entry. Any such guidelines should address quarantine, testing, COVID-19 vaccination, follow-up testing and symptom-monitoring, air filtration requirements, environmental decontamination standards, and contact tracing.
The International Vaccine Passport is now inevitable. As is the world government.
(e) International Certificates of Vaccination or Prophylaxis. Consistent with applicable law, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of HHS, and the Secretary of Homeland Security (including through the Administrator of the TSA), in coordination with any relevant international organizations, shall assess the feasibility of linking COVID-19 vaccination to International Certificates of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) and producing electronic versions of ICVPs.
Sec. 6. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:
(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof…
This is the Deep State’s “Your Lawsuits Are Not Allowed To Work On Us” card.
Notice that nothing in all that I quoted, makes any allowance for the involvement of elected officials.
TRAITOR JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR.
PRETENDER TO THE PRESIDENCY
THE WHITE HOUSE,
January 21, 2021.
I added his lawful titles for the record.
And Faux News, stop wasting my time. The upshot of this EO is not “masks are now mandatory”. Were you evil or lazy to miss that pink elephant in the living room?
