Joe Biden’s mask police to fine people up to $1,500 for violations

February 6, 2021

A few days ago we learned that Joe Biden was deploying the TSA and “other Federal authorities” to enforce the public transportation mask mandate. This does not mean the TSA will just be making sure everybody is wearing a mask, but also that the mask is a government approved mask and has the proper fit.

The CDC announced that it could impose criminal penalties but do not fear, they really do not want to use them. However that stance apparently did not last long because it is being reported here that the TSA recommending fines mask violators up to $1,500. Here is more:

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has recommended a fine of $250, increasing to up to $1,500, for repeated violations of its recently released federal transportation face mask requirement.

“Based on substantial aggravating or mitigating factors, TSA may seek a sanction amount that falls outside these ranges,” the agency wrote in a Friday update.

On Sunday, TSA was authorized to fine passengers who fail to comply with the new mask requirements on public transportation systems.

“This will help prevent further spread of COVID-19 and encourage a unified government response,” Darby LaJoye, a senior TSA official who is performing the duties of the agency head, said at the time. “As we continue to experience impacts from this pandemic, we are committed to this measure as the right thing to do for the TSA workforce, for our industry stakeholders and for passengers.”

“Unified government response.” If those words do not send a chill up your spine I do not know what will. And incidentally, do you find it odd the TSA official in charge of this mentioned “stakeholders” in his comment? There is too much money to be made in the mask and mask accessory industry at this point to have any faith in this ever going away.

Remember when Joe Biden said all he was doing was asking Americans to wear a mask for 100 days? Does this sound like he is asking any more? I did not think so.
