‘Gestapo USA’ Pilot Exposes TSA Airport Security Flaws Loses CCW Permit


TSA Pulls Gun Permit Of Pilot Whistleblower On Airport Security


Chris Liu: I am the YouTube airline pilot

“…The airline pilot who lost his federally-issued gun and badge for posting video on YouTube critical of airport security has chosen to go public with his identity.

“My name is Chris Liu and I’m an airline pilot,” Liu said during an exclusive interview Monday with News10 at his home in Colfax.

Liu’s cell phone video tour of security at San Francisco International Airport led to a team of six federal agents and sheriff’s deputies coming to his home on Dec. 2 to take his handgun and Federal Flight Deck Officer (FFDO) credentials.

Liu’s state-issued permit to carry a concealed weapon was also suspended by the Placer County sheriff.

Liu contacted News10 last Tuesday to share his story, but insisted that neither he nor his airline be identified for fear of retaliation.

Liu decided to reveal his identity Monday because he wants to become actively involved in changing what he believes is a major flaw in airport security.

“I just found a disparity between what happens upstairs and what happens downstairs,” Liu explained. …”

Sacramento-area pilot punished for YouTube video

“…The 50-year-old pilot, who lives outside Sacramento, asked that neither he nor his airline be identified. He has worked for the airline for more than a decade and was deputized by the TSA to carry a gun in the cockpit.

He is also a helicopter test pilot in the Army Reserve and flew missions for the United Nations in Macedonia.

Three days after he posted a series of six video clips recorded with a cell phone camera at San Francisco International Airport, four federal air marshals and two sheriff’s deputies arrived at his house to confiscate his federally-issued firearm. The pilot recorded that event as well and provided all the video to News10.

At the same time as the federal marshals took the pilot’s gun, a deputy sheriff asked him to surrender his state-issued permit to carry a concealed weapon.

A follow-up letter from the sheriff’s department said the CCW permit would be reevaluated following the outcome of the federal investigation. …”

A great speech.

The political ruling class still does not understand the impact new media will have on the nation.

Both Matt Drudge and recently Julian Assange put the old media to shame.

I salute Matt Drudge.

Rare Matt Drudge interview

Is Matt Drudge the Most Influential Website on the Internet?


Drudge Report

“…The Drudge Report is a news aggregation website. Run by Matt Drudge with the help of Andrew Breitbart, the site consists mainly of links to stories from the United States and international mainstream media about politics, entertainment, and current events as well as links to many columnists. The Drudge Report is often considered conservative in tone, though the sources cited and linked to run the gamut of political leanings.[2][3][4][5][6]

Occasionally, Drudge authors news stories himself based on tips. The Report originated in 1996 as a weekly subscriber-based email dispatch.[1] It was most famous for being the first news source to break the Monica Lewinsky scandal to the public after Newsweek decided not to publish the story.[7] …”

The Drudge Report started as a gossip column focusing on Hollywood and Washington, D.C.[9] Matt Drudge began the email-based newsletter called Report from an apartment in Hollywood, California, using his connections with industry and media insiders to break stories, sometimes before they hit the mainstream media. Drudge maintains the website from his home in Miami Beach, Florida, with help from Andrew Breitbart, who assists in story selection and headline writing.[10] Breitbart, who describes himself as “Matt Drudge’s bitch”,[11] works the afternoon shift at the Drudge Report,[12] as well as running his own website (, and another website ( providing a conservative perspective for people in the Los Angeles entertainment industry.[13]

Drudge, who began his website in 1997 as a supplement to his $10/year email newsletter,[14] received national attention in 1996 when he broke the news that Jack Kemp would be Republican Bob Dole’s running mate in the 1996 presidential election. In 1998, Drudge made national waves when he broke the news that Newsweek magazine had information on an inappropriate relationship between “a White House intern” and President Bill Clinton (the Monica Lewinsky scandal), but was withholding publication.[15][16][17] After Drudge’s report, Newsweek published the story.[18]


The Drudge Report site consists mainly of selected[19] hyperlinks to news websites all over the world, each link carrying a headline written by Drudge or his editors. The linked stories are generally hosted on the external websites of mainstream media outlets. It occasionally includes stories written by Drudge — usually two or three paragraphs in length. They generally concern a story about to be published in a major magazine or newspaper. Drudge occasionally publishes Nielsen, Arbitron, or BookScan ratings, or early election exit polls that are otherwise not made available to the public.

The site carries advertisements that generate the site’s revenue. The Drudge Report’s advertising is sold by Vienna, Virginia-based ad firm Intermarkets.[20]

In April, 2009, Associated Press announced that it would be examining the fair use doctrine used by sites like Google and Drudge Report to justify the use of AP content without payment.[21][22]

On May 4, 2009, the US Attorney General’s office issued a warning to employees in Massachusetts not to visit the Drudge Report and other sites because of malicious code contained in some of the advertising on the website.[23] In March, 2010, antivirus company Avast! warned that advertising at the Drudge Report, New York Times, Yahoo, Google, MySpace and other sites carried malware that could infect computers. “The most compromised ad delivery platforms were Yield Manager and Fimserve, but a number of smaller ad systems, including Myspace, were also found to be delivering malware on a lesser scale, Avast Virus Labs said.”[24]

How Much Water Do You Need To Drink Per Day?–Videos

8 Glasses Of Water A Day? (Health Guru)


Dr. Travis Stork: How Many Glasses of Water to Drink Every Day


Health Beat – How much water should you drink each day?



Water: How much should you drink every day?

Water is essential to good health, yet needs vary by individual. These guidelines can help ensure you drink enough fluids.

By Mayo Clinic staff

“…So how much water does the average, healthy adult living in a temperate climate need? In general, doctors recommend 8 or 9 cups. Here are the most common ways of calculating that amount:

  • Replacement approach. The average urine output for adults is about 1.5 liters (6.3 cups) a day. You lose close to an additional liter (about 4 cups) of water a day through breathing, sweating and bowel movements. Food usually accounts for 20 percent of your total fluid intake, so if you consume 2 liters of water or other beverages a day (a little more than 8 cups) along with your normal diet, you will typically replace your lost fluids.
  • Eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. Another approach to water intake is the “8 x 8 rule” — drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day (about 1.9 liters). The rule could also be stated, “Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid a day,” as all fluids count toward the daily total. Although the approach really isn’t supported by scientific evidence, many people use this easy-to-remember rule as a guideline for how much water and other fluids to drink.
  • Dietary recommendations. The Institute of Medicine advises that men consume roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total beverages a day and women consume 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of total beverages a day.

Even apart from the above approaches, if you drink enough fluid so that you rarely feel thirsty and produce 1.5 liters (6.3 cups) or more of colorless or slightly yellow urine a day, your fluid intake is probably adequate. If you’re concerned about your fluid intake, check with your doctor or a registered dietitian. He or she can help you determine the amount of water that’s best for you. …”

Drink Water to Lose Weight and Burn Fat?

“…The most common recommendation It is commonly recommended that people drink between 8 and 10 glasses of water per day. This is a good starting point. The question is, how big is that glass?

The answer is that it depends. As with most things, the more you weigh, the more water you need.

In order to lose weight, every day you should consume between 0.5 and 0.64 ounces of water per pound of lean body weight.

Therefore, if you are going to drink 0.64 ounces of water per pound of lean body mass, use the following formula:

Lean Body Mass x 0.64 = Optimal Water Intake in Ounces

As you can see, a person that has 200 pounds of lean body mass should drink 128 ounces, or 1 gallon, of water. This equals 8 16 ounce glasses of water.

The table below will help you estimate the amount of water you should aim for every day to help weight loss, and how many 16 ounce glasses per day that amount equals.

Drink Water to Lose Weight
Lean Body Weight Water Per Day
0.50 Ounces of Water Per Pound 0.64 Ounces of Water Per Pound
Ounces Per Day 16 Oz. Glasses Per Day Ounces Per Day 16 Oz. Glasses Per Day
100 lbs. 50 oz. 3.1 64 oz. 4.0
125 lbs. 62.5 oz. 3.9 80 oz. 5.0
150 lbs. 75 oz. 4.7 96 oz. 6.0
175 lbs. 87.5 oz. 5.5 112 oz. 7.0
200 lbs. 100 oz. 6.3 128 oz. 8.0
225 lbs. 112.5 oz. 7.0 144 oz. 9.0
250 lbs. 125 oz. 7.8 160 oz. 10.0
275 lbs. 137.5 oz. 8.6 176 oz. 11.0
300 lbs. 150 oz. 9.4 192 oz. 12.0



There is no internationally-agreed standard definition of the cup, whose modern volume ranges between 200 and 284 millilitres.[nb 1] The cup sizes generally used in the many Commonwealth countries and the United States differ by up to 44 mL (1.5 fl oz).

No matter what size cup is used, the ingredients of a recipe measured with the same size cup will have their volumes in the same proportion to one another. The relative amounts to ingredients measured differently (by weight, or by different measures of volume such as teaspoons, etc.) may be affected by the definitions used.

Metric cup
In Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa and Lebanon one cup is commonly defined as 250 millilitres.
1 metric cup  = 250 millilitres
  = 16⅔ international tablespoons (15 mL each)
  = 12½ Australian tablespoons
  8.80 imperial fluid ounces
  8.45 U.S. customary fluid ounces
United States customary cup
United States customary cup is defined as half a U.S. pint.
1 U.S. customary cup  = 1/16 U.S. customary gallon
  = ¼ U.S. customary quart
  = ½ U.S. customary pint
  = 8 U.S. customary fluid ounces
  = 16 U.S. customary tablespoons[nb 2]
  237 millilitres[nb 3]
  15⅔ international tablespoons
  11¾ Australian tablespoons
  0.833 imperial cups
  8.33 imperial fluid ounces
United States “legal” cup
The cup currently used in the United States for nutrition labeling is defined in United States law as 240 mL.[1][2][3]
1 U.S. “legal” cup  = 240 millilitres
  = 16 international tablespoons
  = 12 Australian tablespoons
  8.12 U.S. customary fluid ounces
  8.45 imperial fluid ounces
Imperial cup
The imperial cup, unofficially defined as half an imperial pint, is rarely found today. It may still appear on older kitchen utensils and in older recipe books.
1 imperial cup  = 0.5 imperial pints
  = 2 imperial gills
  = 10 imperial fluid ounces
  = 284 millilitres
  19 international tablespoons[4][5]
  14¼ Australian tablespoons[6]
  1.20 U.S. customary cups
  9.61 U.S. customary fluid ounces
Japanese cup
The Japanese cup is currently defined as 200 mL.
1 Japanese cup  = 200 millilitres

“…What is Fasting?
Fasting is a period of abstinence from all food or specific items. Fluids are consumed in sufficient quantity to satisfy thirst and physiologic requirements. During the absence of food, the body will systematically cleanse itself of everything except vital tissue. Starvation will occur only when the body is forced to use vital tissue to survive. Although protein is being used by the body during the fast, a person fasting even 40 days on water will not suffer a deficiency of protein, vitamins, minerals or fatty acids. In the breakdown of unhealthy cells, all essential substances are used and conserved in a most extraordinary manner. There is an unwarranted fear of fasting that strength diminishes from the catabolism of proteins from muscle fibers. Even during long fasts, the number of muscle fibers remains the same. Although the healthy cells may be reduced in size and strength for a time, they remain perfectly sound. …”
