Rudy Giuliani Thinks Building 7 Is A Joke

When you watch the video, you see that it’s a complete misrepresentation of what took place, and Giuliani actually laughed because Bob Tuskin was making a big scene.

Sacramento Cops Taser Man for Leaving Airport Security Line

The headline gives the impression that the guy got tased simply for leaving the security line, and most of the article is withheld, which goes on to say that the guy had actually grabbed his bag from being scanned, and ran through security to get onto his plane.

On C-SPAN’s Washington Journal on May 18, 2011, a man by the name of Robert Stephan talked about “security” in the United States.

A caller asked him what his salary was. Working six years in Washington, D.C. can really work wonders on you.

This guy said that since he was no longer a DHS employee, he wasn’t receiving a salary, and since he only worked six years, he also doesn’t receive a pension. What he failed to point out, however, until later, was that he is now a contractor for DHS.

Relying on a technicality, he deliberately dodged a straight-forward question of what his annual compensation was, and also failed to point out what his salary had been when he was an employee, since the question was what his current salary was.

He also claimed he had no idea what salaries were under “the Obama administration,” giving the false impression that salaries have radically changed in the past two years.

If that weren’t enough, he completely ignored the question of how many threats and incidents there had been, and had to rely on the moderator to tell him what DHS’ budget was, presumably because he was too busy keeping America safe all these years.

On a visit to Rome this month, at the airport:

  • They immediately stamped my Canadian passport, and I could stay for up to 90 days without a tourist visa
  • No questioning
  • They didn’t mention anything about liquids
  • No full body scan
  • Customs declaration appears to work on the honour system

Returning to Canada through the U.S., at JFK airport:

  • Required to take off my shoes
  • Required to separately x-ray my laptop
  • Required to put 100 mL or less of liquids in a plastic re-sealable bag
  • Questioned for a minute about customs and what my intentions were
  • Passport stamped for connecting flight only

This, despite Canada and the U.S. sharing the longest undefended land border in the world, and being parties to NAFTA, the largest trade union in the world as of 2010, and most Canadians being exempt from US-VISIT fingerprinting and photographing procedures, unlike U.S. green card holders.

Indeed, the U.S. was attacked on 9/11 and Italy and Canada weren’t. However, the disparity in security checks for Canadians at the airport in Italy’s largest city versus the United States is vast.

This, despite Italy having been a member of the Iraq War coalition, all three countries with troops in Afghanistan, and Italy’s longest-serving and current Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, having been the most pro-Bush foreign leader aside from UK prime ministers Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.

Canada’s federal government blatantly disregarded Ontario’s provincial law requiring private security firms and their guards to be licensed, in the run-up to the 2010 G8/G20 summits.

As the Toronto Star reported on June 8, 2010:

The security firm awarded a government contract to provide private guards for the G8 and G20 summits is not licensed in Ontario.

Contemporary Security Canada, a Vancouver-based company that did private security for the 2010 Winter Olympics, was hired by the RCMP to provide about 1,100 private guards for the Toronto and Huntsville summits.

Security industry members say licensing is a rigorous process that normally takes six to eight months.”

“The clock is ticking down to the G20. For the aim of public safety, we’re moving forward with the process to have them licensed quickly with all the due diligence necessary,” said Laura Blondeau, spokeswoman for Minister Rick Bartolucci.

Blondeau said the Ministry became aware of the CSC’s contract no more than two weeks ago.

This story shows how:

1) Canada’s federal government doesn’t bother to familiarize itself with provincial law, or simply doesn’t care about it.
2) Even Canada’s largest province plans on buckling under the pressure of the federal government.
3) While claiming “public safety,” by moving to license the security firm in time for the summits, in half the usual time, Ontario’s government is indicating that their current licensing requirements are overburdensome, or they’re cutting corners and putting public safety at risk.

Canada’s provincial governments are granted exclusive jurisdiction over certain powers by the Canadian Constitution, just as U.S. states are by the U.S. Constitution, and the federal government can no more disregard provincial law than provincial governments can disregard federal law in their respective exclusive jurisdictions.
