Now that he has been in the White House for over three months, it is brutally obvious that Joe Biden’s tenure as the nation’s president is going to be unlike any who came before him and that there is now an oppressive “new normal” firmly in place.
Biden had initially proposed a 100-day “mask challenge” as a component of his regime’s policies to manage the coronavirus, but in all reality they *never* going away.
Not only do Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and president-in-waiting Kamala Harris constantly appear with their menacing black masks splayed across their faces, but they are determined to force the masks on every American that they currently have the power to control.
So on Friday, the announcement came down that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) would be extending the mandatory mask orders though at least mid-September.
The mandate, which will apply to all passengers from ages two years old and up, restricts freedom on all airplanes, inside of airports, on railways, waterways, and buses.
TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstein delivered the news via Twitter, reminding Americans that when traveling that they are ordered to “mask-up!”
.@TSA is extending the face mask requirement for individuals across all transportation modes throughout the U.S., including at airports, onboard commercial aircraft, on public buses and on commuter bus and rail systems. That date is now extended from May 11 to Sept. 13. mask-up!

According to a TSA statement; “The federal mask requirement throughout the transportation system seeks to minimize the spread of COVID-19 on public transportation,” wrote TSA official Darby LaJoye “We will continue to work closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to evaluate the need for these directives and recognize the significant level of compliance thus far.”
The agency also states that: “At TSA checkpoints, travelers will continue to see all security screening officers wearing face masks and gloves. Acrylic barriers remain in place at most airports while new credential authentication technology and computed tomography equipment at hundreds of checkpoints greatly reduce the need for physical contact between our officers and the traveling public.”
Additionally; “The TSA screening officer at the travel document checker (TDC) station will request that travelers temporarily lower their face mask to verify their identity. Those who approach the TDC without a face mask will be asked to obtain one to proceed. Passengers who refuse to wear a face mask will not be permitted to enter the secure area of the airport, which includes the terminal and gate area. One hand sanitizer container up to 12 oz. per person continues to be temporarily allowed in carry-on bags while all other liquid, gels, and aerosols must meet the 3-1-1 rule.”
The extension comes as the nation gears up for the summer travel season which could be a busy one after most of the country was under lockdown last year with severe limitations on movement being imposed by both the federal and Democrat-controlled state and local governments.
The announcement came after Biden’s announcement that the CDC would be slightly relaxing mask guidance for those who have been vaccinated but only slightly.
Biden appeared on NBC’s flagship TODAY Show on Friday where he insisted that it is the “patriotic responsibility” of all Americans to mask up “for God’s sake.”

For those who have already been vaccinated and hoped that Biden would permit them to go back to living the way that they used to, it just isn’t going to happen.
Expect the order to be extended again in September.
