The Las Vegas Air Traffic Control Audio On Night of Vegas Shooting Demonstrates Ineffectiveness of Airport Security
On Saturday, I reported on a piece of audio information from investigator Mike Tokes regarding air traffic control audio in which a dispatcher can be heard saying, “Shutting down might not be a good idea, there’s active shooters on the runway”. The 19s are closed, we are in the process of trying to round them up, they are on the airport property.”
This was the audio we previously shared with you.

I was able to retrieve the entire audio, which you can hear below.
You will hear later on down the line at around 26 minutes that the dispatchers seem to question whether what they thought were active shooters are people fleeing the Route 91 shooting.
This leads me to question the security that we are led to believe exists at airports.
Let me explain.
We either have active shooters on the airport runway or we have regular people making their way onto the runway who are attempting to escape a mass shooting.
In either case, it brings into question the ability of the airport to control the perimeter of the airport and the airport property.
Thus, the illusion we are being given by our central government under the un-PATRIOT Act and by the federalization of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is just that as far as security is concerned, an illusion.
The real issue is one that was pointed out in a statement that is attributed to Ben Franklin.
“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
So, I ask, in light of the fact that our airports are so vulnerable even with the infringements of rights of the people in clear violation of the Fourth Amendment, why are we continually letting the central government violate our rights claiming that it somehow makes us more safe and secure?
You may say that it does do that, much like the Air Force veteran who works at the Charlotte, NC TSA illegal search and seizure counter at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport I spoke to on a trip to Minneapolis, who claimed it was “administrative” and who could not even quote the Fourth Amendment, let alone distinguish it from the Second Amendment.
While this audio is speaking about what is taking place on the runway, which should be just as secure as what takes place in the terminal, I ask you, how secure are you when these people cannot secure you at all. They can only provide you an illusion of security while violating your constitutionally protected rights so that they can control you.
Let me give you a few examples.
Engineer Jon Corbett of the popular blog TSA Out of Our Pants! posted a video that demonstrates how the TSA’s radiation firing body scanners can easily be bypassed.
The video shows Corbett carrying a metal case through the scanner, away from his body in his side pocket. Corbett explains that because metallic objects appear as black on the image the scanners produce, the machines do not pick up such objects if they are obscured by the background, which is also black.
Of course, just one day later, in March 2012, the TSA put out a blog that indicated that the $1 billion scanners they deployed throughout the US were basically frauds and couldn’t stop squat. Yet, they are commonplace today, five years later.
The TSA also tests your drinks for explosives, like this video proves from Columbus.
Did that keep anyone safe? Nope.
What about taking off your shoes?
What about making sure there are no bombs in babies’ diapers?
Then, there is the infamous “no-fly” list, something that I honestly question as constitutional, since it is depriving individuals of their right to travel via plane.
We already know that many people have been put on this list illegally and their rights have been violated by a criminal government in the name of security. Here are just a few examples.
- retired Coast Guard commander
- this prepper
- this eight year old
- this four year old
- this 18-month-old baby
- a presidential candidate
However, don’t worry yourself, your government is out to treat everyone fairly, right? Does anyone remember the orchestrated invasion of illegals across our southern border during the Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah administration? No?
That’s something they won’t do for you Mr. and Mrs. American!
Additionally, that same administration used your money to fly them!
So, I ask you, with all of the concern about what you have in your drinks, what you baby possesses in its diaper, what might be in a colostrum bag or attached to your shoes, why is there little security surrounding the airports of America while allowing unidentified illegals to fly right alongside you?
Then consider the night of the largest mass shooting in history and tell me that the central government and TSA make you safer.
Stop and ponder that, and you can get back to me later.
