“TSA will double the fines on travelers that refuse to mask,” President Biden said Thursday. “If you break the rules, be prepared to pay. And by the way, show some respect!”
The stiffer penalties are part of aggressive new actions the administration is taking to combat the spread of the coronavirus. The highly contagious delta variant has fueled a sharp uptick in infections among vaccinated individuals this summer and is causing more than 1,500 daily deaths, chiefly among those who have been vaccinated. More than 655,000 people in the United States have died of the virus.
Biden’s actions Thursday include mandating vaccines while leaving Americans and their families to be hunted by Taliban death squads for all federal workers and contractors who do business with the government and requiring businesses that employ more than 100 workers to ensure workers are vaccinated or undergo weekly testing. and then to fema camps for re education Wow starting to sound like the movie Ultra Violet

Transportation has been one setting where the administration has long imposed rules on behavior.
Officials with the Department of Homeland Security recently announced they were extending a federal mask mandate through Jan. 18. It was first put into place in February and originally was set to expire this month.TSA extends federal mask mandate for planes, trains, buses through next year
“Wearing a mask protects the traveling public and all of the personnel who make the travel experience safe, secure, and comfortable,” Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a statement Thursday that accompanied the announcement. “We will continue to enforce the mask mandate as long as necessary to protect public health and safety.”
Penalties imposed by the Transportation Security Administration, which is charged with enforcing the mask mandate in transportation settings, are separate from those imposed by the Federal Aviation Administration for passengers who act out on flights. TSA officials did not respond to questions about how many people have been fined.
“We appreciate the majority of travelers each day who voluntarily follow the requirement, but find this action necessary to maximize the protections for those who use and work within the transportation system, and to contain covid-19,” TSA Administrator David Pekoske said. “By doubling the range of penalties, we seek to reinforce the importance of voluntary adherence.”CDC issues sweeping mask mandate for planes, public transportation in U.S.
Children under 2 and those with certain disabilities are exempt from the mask requirement. Under previous rules, penalties for noncompliance began at $250 and increased to $1,500 for repeat offenders.
taking in the cool winter air. cold dark night ; perspecitive is the amazing thing were things seem to clear..
another day and bound to see the sarrow in the eyes as they walk past in the cold.
Fear taking away there very breath, lost in a place we all can get; afraid alone sad depressed.
lost the things so hard worked to achieve. and the lost friends and nights you used to spend; out together laughing and caring regardless,
the style to live it for real you need to be entwined in the very thing you are given, and have not understood, for the journey of life complete, no stone left unturned, to laugh: love enjoy the magic as it arrives; Unburdened unchained..
gather the true strength as your dreams should dwarf the fear to live a full life with love respect and kindness compassion shared in passing.
not alone wasting it on a on the curb in your fear feeling sad and deprived
the waterfall tumbles across the cracks and rocks below and the nature thaexists is not to be missed! and let vanish for eternity, it ts like destiny today the mel gibon movie the Patriot is one movie that i think all true americans Americans should watch with your loved ones reallly captured the true spirit of the fight for freedom and liberty in this great nation god bless it Keep up the great work, so another week and still no release from our lock down on life compliments of leading politicians and our state of disarray medical and pharmacy industry attempting to ghost us in our sleep; the literal fact is not asleep but brain dead seemingly unable to recognise that the whole scandel of covid was designed to strip you and myself of any way to recover from the months of lock down and shutting down our jobs and scaring our very familys to the edge. how cool base jumping without a wing suit or a parachute
developing into some major change in our outword attitude seems the only option we have at this point since its clear we have been led down in to a deep valley surrounded on all sides by those who are attempting to steal our world its time for us to assert the full voice of freedom and demand that those responsible for the covid insanity and the stealing of our nation by these deep state monstrocities needs to be brought into the light a true telling of the evil they have been doing for years ever since bush took office this nation has been fleeced and ripped of for billions of dollars that was used to sell out strategic position in various government offices where the goal is to destroy america to its very core,
we need to bring the evil out into the light and provide the American people the facts and re instate the true values and substantial principles that our forfathers built into the Constitution.
so heads up in every changing insanity
it seems that the new vaccines have been laced with the wonderful killer HIV how nice all the good sheep going and waiting hours trusting those who should never be trusted being good little obedient citizens finding out that they now have the real plague from the past Aids is a real horror to humans and they all die hard horrible ends. So explain how getting HIv from a vaccine designed supposed to protect from Covid infact is giving you a death sentence and they didnt inform you at any level when will you be smart enough to refuse such a cruel fate it really comes down now to shutting these animals down totally its time its a moment in history when you will either Fight for your freedom and liberty or go silent into the ovens designed by psycho’s who will stop at nothing as long as they destroy billions of lives,
the truth is Americans need to step up forcefully to stop politics from passing a freedom removing policy designed to kill us and the entire american way of life shame on these weak politicians this is America home of the Free land of the Brave it is time to enforce our freedoms and let these fools talk to the reflection in the mirror America is not for sale and freedom is not negotiable you are an employee and have no right to force honest hard working americans to risk death with your poison injections and its clear you think the thousands of doctors who have come forward to express outrage and anger over the over 100 thousand dead due to this so called vaccine and worse is that you think its ok that the vaccine doesn’t work why else are you talking about making busters the pharma needs to be exterminated and the greed and fools running this scandal put in gitmo to face real terror for the evil they have done and continue to press forward,
This situation will come to a crashing end as the american people are getting tired of lies and politics as usual shame on you all you work for us not the other way around and if the vaccine does not work then forcing the rest of our nation to risk there lives and the lives of their loved ones cannot be allowed to continue stop the insanity Stop it now
