AP Photo/Michael Dwyer A friend of mine had to fly recently, and she looked into TSA PreCheck to speed up her journey home.
It’s a terrific program when you think about it — any opportunity you have to save time at the airport is a worthwhile pursuit. At $85 for five years, PreCheck is a bargain if you fly frequently and don’t want to worry about the “need to remove your shoes, laptops, liquids, belts and light jackets.”
As long as you’re flying out of a participating airport on a participating airline, you’re good to go, provided you haven’t committed “certain violations of federal security regulations” including “refusal to wear a mask in U.S. transportation systems covered by the January 31, 2021 Security Directive and subsequent amendments.” Seriously, that’s the first violation that the TSA mentions on its PreCheck FAQ page .
But there’s one massive problem with the TSA PreCheck program in our woke world. The TSA’s attitude toward our non-binary population is downright passé.
On that same FAQ page, before you can find out that refusing to wear a mask renders you ineligible for PreCheck, you have to endure two questions about gender designations on the sign-up form. Maybe that shouldn’t shock us, but somehow it’s head-shakingly surprising.
But if you’re one of those delightful, awesome non-binary or trans folks that we spent the last month celebrating, you’re out of luck. You have to pick “male” or “female” to sign up for PreCheck.
The first FAQ on the page asks, “ Am I required to select the gender that matches the data on my supporting identity documentation? “
The answer? “You can select any gender on the application, even if the gender you select does not match the gender on your supporting documentation (such as birth certificate, passport, or state ID). You can select […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
