Airborne Sinema Not Only Victim . . . How To Stop A Political Hijacker If He Rules White House Cockpit?

October 10, 2021 Frontpage No Comments

By DEXTER DUGGAN

PHOENIX — The cover page of the German news magazine Der Spiegel showed a photo of the Alps as seen looking out an airliner window.
Nothing startling about that, although you expect powerful illustrations to catch your eye at the newsstand. Except this photo was chilling for what it didn’t shriek out, but was all too well understood back when it hit the racks in 2015.
The young co-pilot of a Germanwings commercial jet had just intentionally crashed a planeload of people into the French Alps, on March 24, 2015. Such a view from the window may have been one of the last sights doomed passengers saw. They had no reason to expect looming tragedy on the morning flight from Barcelona to Dusseldorf.
The apparently mentally troubled co-pilot, Andreas Lubitz, earlier had trained at a flight school near Phoenix, popular with foreign airline companies because of the good weather and easily accessible airspace here for their learners.
While Europeans likely wouldn’t have expected hijackings with twenty-first century airport security — and who would have thought the threat would be in command right in the cockpit? — both Europeans and Americans have learned that perilous political instability these days can be let loose by globalists.
And how do you guard against a political hijacking if the bad guy is in the big seat at the White House?
Mass demonstrations against COVID lockdowns broke out around the world, but you don’t see frenzied dominant-media coverage that might give you the idea lockdowns universally are being rejected by people fed up with the Democrat Joe Biden-Tony Fauci type of borderless dictatorship.
Hey, just like chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley has pals in the Chinese military leadership, so does Fauci among Wuhan’s ghouls with test tubes.
Biden’s administration created one disaster after another. How much longer before the breaking point arrives for unbearably provoked citizens?
In early October Merrick Garland, the puppet attorney general of Marxist puppet Biden, threatened federal action including by the FBI against parents who dared complain to school boards about left-wing indoctrination of their children.
Justified parental outrage against widespread so-called Critical Race Theory and other schoolhouse propaganda was proving to be another strong rallying point against the insensate ruling elite. Rather than listen to people’s legitimate complaints, the ever-ready federal fist was waved against them. How’s that for lowering temperatures?
Fox News reported on October 6 that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) said, “President Biden’s latest decision is part of a disturbing trend in the Democrat Party to silence parents. We should encourage family participation in our schools, not baselessly attack opposing views because leftist groups want control over curriculums.”
Disgust against Biden grew so deep that Cong. Andy Biggs (R., Ariz.) said Biden should resign or else be removed from office.
In his opinion column headlined, “Biden is the wrong leader for America,” Biggs posted October 5 at the Washington Examiner: “Across the political and demographic spectrum, Americans wonder not if the ‘American Moment’ has passed but whether the United States will survive President Joe Biden’s dismantling of the country.”
Biggs concluded: “This president is incapable of pulling us up because he is only adept at pulling us down. He is unfit to lead. He ought to resign. He should be removed.”
Meanwhile, in early October 2021, more than six full years after the Germanwings crash, looking out a jetliner window didn’t presently occupy U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D., Ariz.) as she flew from Phoenix back for more political tussling in Washington, D.C.
But Sinema got another sharp reminder that Biden’s radicals won’t give anyone a minute of peace when there are grievances to grind. Apparently catching up on reading, Sinema was confronted by an illegal-alien activist who walked down the airliner aisle and stood right next to the senator’s seat to urge political acquiescence.
Although we often read about flight attendants quick to spring into action against passengers deemed guilty of some COVID mask-wearing violation or other, this activist was free to stand right by the senator to repeat her plea, although Sinema wasn’t interested in debating.
One imagines that flight crews are informed quietly when U.S. senators are among their passengers, and this senator had some stationary stranger out in the aisle right next to her. Was a terrorist about to do injury? No attendant seemed eager to see.
And think of this. Are pro-Biden illegal-immigrant activists on all the flights from Phoenix, with the happy expectation that they just may happen to run into an airborne senator they can implore? Are they sort of like omnipresent sky marshals ready to take their own sort of action?
Or, on the other hand, does it just happen that this sort of activist is privy to the senator’s exact itinerary and can count on buying a last-minute ticket to be aboard with her? A ticket at a premium price, paid with Sugar Daddy George Soros’ money? And guaranteed availability; no sold-out problems?
After all, kindred pro-Biden activists had just gained forbidden access to instructor Sinema’s classroom back at Arizona State University, then followed her into the university bathroom to videotape and harass her.
And once Sinema landed at Reagan National Airport, she was confronted as she walked along the concourse by more pleas to cave to Biden. Any coincidence that bad Catholic Biden delivers deviltry if you’re not with his program?
Speaking of itineraries, Vice President Kamala Harris made a quick trip to Palm Springs at the beginning of October without disclosing why, and Press Secretary Jen Psaki affirmed that during his frequent trips back to Delaware, Biden won’t release visitor logs for his residences. Talk about the ruling elite.
When Biden was asked about Sinema’s unpleasant early-October adventure, he replied without much concern, “I don’t think they’re appropriate tactics but it happens to everybody.”
And what about harassment against the other Democratic senator who doesn’t agree to Biden’s astronomical spending bills, Joe Manchin, of West Virginia? Said Biden: “The only people it doesn’t happen to are people who have Secret Service standing around. So it’s part of the process.”
Given another Biden mess to try to clean up, Psaki was asked about his degree of concern over Sinema’s mistreatment. Psaki said maybe Biden just “shorthanded” what he meant to say.
It just so happens that Biden has more than enough Secret Service protecting him, so what does “Empathy Joe” care about others? He certainly didn’t grant any meeting time to Republican governors calling to sit down with him to try to fix the border catastrophe that he personally created.
Citing Biden’s shrugging off Sinema and Manchin, Republican consultant David Winston posted at The Hill political site on October 6: “When your political strategy isn’t working, the answer isn’t to dig in and double down but to rethink your strategy and the policies driving it.
“But our current president and his Democratic Congress don’t seem capable of rethinking much of anything,” Winston added, “much less considering the possibility that the extreme liberal agenda they’re pushing doesn’t actually reflect the country they were elected to govern.”
As for Merrick Garland threatening heavy federal action against parents who stand up for their kids before local school boards, the national religious-liberty organization Alliance Defending Freedom advised Garland to reconsider in a letter dated October 6.
“Parents expressing concern over Critical Race Theory, gender theory, and COVID-related mandates in public schools do not qualify as domestic terrorists,” wrote ADF general counsel Kristen Waggoner. “Their protests do not warrant the involvement of federal law enforcement or the application of federal laws aimed at stopping, among others, transnational terror organizations.
“Employing those powerful national-security tools against frustrated parents is a misuse of federal power,” Waggoner said. “It vilifies largely peaceful, well-intentioned citizens who are seeking nothing more than to protect and promote the well-being of their children. And it chills the constitutionally protected speech of those who rightly object to ill-considered policies on our nation’s schoolchildren.
“Many parents . . . are rightly concerned that the government has violated their fundamental right to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children,” she said. “They want school boards to remove politics from the classroom and get back to academics. They have the right to express those concerns to elected officials and shouldn’t live in fear of government punishment for doing so.”

A Sick Society

The Wanderer asked former Washington, D.C., conservative strategist Seth Leibsohn, now a talk host at Phoenix-based KKNT (960 AM), for his reaction regarding Sinema. He replied: “What recently happened to Sen. Sinema should be an outrage — but a lot at ASU should be an outrage, including two students assaulting two other students in what can only be called a racial assault in a multicultural center.
“If one lacks understanding in how far left-wing the Democratic Party has become, never mind our political center, it’s important to know the president of the United States gave a pass to those who harassed Sen. Sinema in a restroom, including breaking the law, and called it ‘part of the process’,” Leibsohn said.
“This, while his attorney general was writing a memo weaponizing the FBI against parents showing up at school board meetings to challenge racialist doctrine and public-health dictates that make little sense but have great potential to cause great harm to their children,” he said.
“It’s a sick society that allows the government to harass children and their parents to comply with the party line while ignoring (if not, sotto voce, encouraging) actual invasions of privacy and harassment so long as it is in the name of left-wing ukase,” Leibsohn said.
Also asked about Sinema, Arizona-based conservative GOP political consultant Constantin Querard told The Wanderer: “It really isn’t anything more than math and some political calculations. In a closely divided Senate, and you can’t get closer than today’s 50-50, any one senator becomes very powerful.
“When you take a senator like Joe Manchin, you have a center-right Democrat representing a state that votes overwhelmingly Republican, so he is most likely to be the critical swing vote,” Querard said.
“Someone like Kyrsten Sinema is similar in that, while she is by no means center-right or even moderate, she does represent a Republican state she barely won in 2018 in spite of a huge Blue Wave election, and so she has made the political calculation that she can’t just rubber-stamp insane left-wing proposals,” he said.
“If the Democrats had a 53-47 majority, Manchin and Sinema wouldn’t matter and they could vote politically instead of ideologically, without the left-wing base caring,” Querard said.
