    Passport System Collapses: Holiday Travelers Paralyzed in U.S. Airports As Customs & BP Computers Fail

    VIDEO– Passport System Collapses: Holiday Travelers Paralyzed in All U.S. Airports As Customs & Border Patrol Computers Fail

    https://truepundit.com/video-passpor...omputers-fail/

    Posted on January 1, 2018



    We are getting reports that all international travelers in the United States are weathering horrendous lines as the computer system for passports operated by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol has failed late Monday night.

    On one of the busiest travel nights of the holiday season.

    A video of the nightmare in Miami’s airport is being played out throughout the United States:

    The people are growing restless from the inconclusive information given by @united gate agents.

    Good evening, there is a system issue affecting processing times for customs. The customs agents are working to get everyone screened and through customs as quickly as possible. Your patience is appreciated.

    Due to U.S. Customs and Border Protection computer issues, passengers at JFK Airport may experience delays in the international arrivals area. [12]

    All of immigration systems are down. We’ve been holding in a hallway for over an hour. Now we are in this

    6:22 PM - 1 Jan 2018
    Luke Russert@LukeRussert

    The Customs & Border Patrol system is apparently down nationwide. We’re being held in the terminal and told to try and use mobile passport. I’d be mad but the #Bills are in the playoffs.

    This is what Global Entry looks like at LAX customs when the entire computer system is down. What a waste.

    Gee, I wonder how many ISIS types slipped into the USA under the cover of this dysfunctional system. Disrupt the entire system, slow it down, mess it up and then use the chaos to slip in unnoticed. I would think the ability to analyze any passport for problems would be minimal. The mobs of people means the checks, if they were done at all, were done fast.

    Yep, Ragnarok we just got hit today. It will take some time to sort it out, but something big just happened. Heck, maybe "they" moved in a nuke while the system was focused on dealing with masses of pissed off people. It is exactly how I would do it, Ragnarok. 2018 ain't off to a very good start in my opinion.

    Though EMP devices exist, last I knew, one that could be snuck in anywhere would be only large enough to hit a few city blocks. Maybe one town.

    This might be the only way to prevent the bad guys from slipping out of the country before Trump’s forces can catch them.

    Something to look forward to in just three weeks (although I don't know if this is still on schedule to take place): "The Transportation Security Administration, which oversees airport security, said it intends to stop accepting non-compliant IDs on Jan. 22, 2018."

    I,m guessing the real bad guys have their own jets and/or access to some,

    with your $$ of course

    The lower tier do use commercial flights, and what they have to say might be valuable for building the bigger cases. I haven't been following the coup thread closely, but the last page (or so) has some good videos. I watched two from April LaJune last night. IMHO, likely connections, as the timing is just too much of a coincidence. Not sure however, what side the hack would have come from - if the resulting chaos was intended to make it harder or easier to detain people.

    Our satellite internet was taken down at the same time. Did not come back for hours. Sounds like a sneak EMP.

    I don't know what the excuse is tonight but it started again 1/2 hr ago. It seems to be affecting the East coast more so than last night.

    It wasn't mentioned in the story, but I'm assuming the major seaports and airport also had issues with freight documentation. I'm thinking the primary focus wasn't just to get a few guys slipped in during the airport chaos, but to get a couple of containers through the ports easier. I can't imagine the powers that be simply shut down all freight movement out of Boston, or Miami or Long Beach because a computer screwed up.

    And this is exactly how you would bring in a nuke, Dennis. You would hack the entire system. You would overwhelm the TSA types with hordes of pissed off passengers, freight companies etc. And you would have your people prepositioned, saving them for the one big job, as customs agents at a port who would then have authority to give you emergency clearance to get your nuke, or anthrax, or whatever onto a truck and driven inland.

    We have to understand that most of the recent attacks have been by the B team, and their real goal could have been to divert us from the big strike, like at the State of the Union address for example.

    In all the passport chaos, who can say whether the one shipping container, or the one sleeper cell ISIS needed to get here didn't come in?

    Nukes don't use passports, and I highly doubt 'they' had one sitting just outside the US waiting for a computer snafu to confuse the issue so they could sneak it in on 20 minutes notice.

    I applaud your optimism concerning the TSA, but slightly disagree. In order to overwhelm them, they would have to give a shit about passengers, which they do not.
    The word RACIST, and the ability to debate race-related issues rationally, are the kryptonite of white common sense.

    After the first one, the rest are free.

    Are you saying there were more shut downs last night? If so, are there links or tweets?

    Yea they stopped out bound traffic, but I didn't see any thing being said. I did more watching Flight Trader than scanning other sites thou.

    My guess is that they have some sort of algorithms for when certain pass ports red flags that things shut down, or else they are trying to spoof somebody.
