US Moves To Restrict Travelers Taking International Flights Citing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

[Editor's Note: The following post is by TDV Editor-in-Chief, Jeff Berwick]

The US government is using the Malaysian Airlines flight 370 to tackle the "widespread lack of passport screening in all countries." The US is stepping up their processes. Already each passport of incoming visitors to the US is screened through multiple databases. After flight 370 disappeared, the US has started this process for all outgoing passengers.

"Coupled with this information and the new abilities to act on that information definitely makes air travel a lot safer," according to one government official.

Things that could prevent you from getting a passport...

"If the State Department decides that you are a real threat to national security or U.S. policy, you may be denied a passport. You will also be disqualified if you have been ruled legally incompetent, are subject to felony arrest or have been forbidden -- by court order, parole or probation -- from leaving the country. Also, your passport can be revoked -- and subsequent applications denied -- if you are found to have obtained a passport through fraudulent means or to have altered a passport. In 2012, legislation was introduced that could revoke or deny passports to people who owe money to the Internal Revenue Service."

With everyone labeled a terrorist in some form or another, and secret courts that make secret rulings with secret (if any) oversight, what are you worried about? Unless... You're sure you have done your taxes PERFECTLY every year... right?

Again, Ron was right!

Remember his comment about how boarder fences are a bad idea because they can be used to keep you in? Well, this new process is just another one of those boarder fences!! As someone below posted...if you want to get on that airplane, you will need this chip implanted! Things are getting worse..."never let a good crisis go to waste"...right, Rahm?

It will make air travel safer?

Isn't air travel like a million times safer than driving to the grocery store?

Taking the states concern to "always keep us safe" to its logical end, each individualshould be confined to a padded cell 24/7. That may not be anyway to live, but...at least you will be safe. (Except for the times when the men with guns come into your cell to fcuk you in the ass...)

But who could be against an occasional cornholin in the name of "safety"?

yes, well you'll need this implant chip

Oh ok

If the guy

is on the MSM often, I find it makes it harder for me to trust him.
Time will tell. However, it would not surprise me if the use the Malaysian "crisis" to implement some new totalitarian scheme.

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav


And the scheme will be revealed by 1. how quickly it is implemented, 2. by whom the legislation is drawn up (and the speed at which that code is [already] cobbled together), and 3. who (in the corporatocracy) makes money from it.

LOL! Observing scam / criminal "government's" behavior is an exercise in pattern recognition!

What would the Founders do?
