Is the TSA Bringing Back the Mask Mandate?


by Mark Schwendau

Whistleblowers from the TSA and Border Patrol have come forward to the online news show Infowars. Both groups have made claims that the Biden administration is setting the stage for additional Covid lockdowns ramping up to the 2024 election year. The foreshadowing will begin with incremental restrictions and news briefs, such as mask mandates for TSA employees in mid-September and passengers in October. TSA officials cited a meeting last Tuesday in which TSA managers were told new memorandums and policies were being completed that would re-implement masking, starting with TSA and airport employees as early as mid-September.

The TSA official said they will soon receive new guidelines on how the policy will escalate in mid –October, where mask-wearing will be required by pilots, flight attendants, airport staff, passengers, and airport patrons. Infowars reached out to a trusted Border Patrol manager who is also a whistleblower to them. The source confirmed the same directives are being given to Border Patrol.

The excuse given this time will be relative to a new Covid variant named EG.5, nicknamed Eris, of the Omicron variant line. Hospitalizations are reported by the media to be up anywhere from 12 to 14% lately in both Canada and the US. Eris is reported to be more easily contracted but less deadly.

We found the airline pilots starting to talk about this topic, and they are not happy. The Covid-19 pandemic and related mask mandates decimated the commercial airline industry in both 2020 and 2021, and the people who make their livings getting us from point A to B are not happy at all with the prospect of the mask mandate being re-imposed as per the post below:

“There have been some reports – from a couple of sources that are occasionally correct, but often less than accurate – that TPTB is preparing to trot out the Covid hysteria again starting next month. Masking for TSA in September and for pilots/FAs/passengers/airport patrons in October. So will you comply, or have you had enough of this $@(*)%?”

Since Dr. Anthony Fauci (D – former Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases – NIAID) retired and been called to Capitol Hill to testify by fellow medical doctor Rand Paul (R – KY), multiple studies have been published and appeared online indicating masking does not stop Covid-19 and its related variants. 

Dr. Fauci referred to top D.C. prosecutor for CRIMINAL charges: Republican Rand Paul demands perjury probe into his ‘lie’ under oath that COVID did not come from the Wuhan lab


As the post by GhettoJet notes above, it is not known how reliable the sources of Infowars are on this story. Developments in the courts would seem to contradict this story. 

In November of 2021, the US Supreme Court unanimously struck down mask mandates. In April of 2022, a Federal judge in Florida struck down a COVID mask mandate for planes, buses, and trains and imposed a nationwide injunction. That judge ruled that the mandate exceeds the authority of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Similarly, a judge last June in New York ruled that neither the governor nor the state health commissioner has the authority to impose a mask mandate. He went on to say the state’s Legislature would have to approve specific laws to require masks in schools and certain public places.

Having noted the aforementioned cases above, that is not to say Joe Biden will not try to run contrary to the courts of law in the interest of bringing back mail-in ballots lacking chain of custody for a forensic audit to favor his party. It is the opinion of many if not most, Americans that if the Democrat Party can’t cheat, they can no longer win a legitimate election in this country.

The lawlessness, homelessness, open drug use, poverty, and general decimation of some of America’s largest urban areas (Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Portland, Washington, D.C., etc.) are rumored to be shifting many voters from the Blue Party to the Red Party in 2024. 

Joe Biden trying to re-impose the mask mandate will only serve to alienate more voters from his party.

  1. There is no need for a mask. But they love it because it shows your compliance and foolfills their desire of power over you. Has NOTHING to do with a virus.

  2. They never had any data to support anything they did. There is no test for covid in use. It’s a fact. PCR is not a test for anything, as the inventor clearly stated.

    Biden is campaigning for the presidency by appealing to the globalist elitist vote. He wins through cheating, he needs the corrupt elite to steal it for him like last time. So, he fulfills their wish list, with things like funding the Ukraine war, mandates, energy restrictions, legal attacks on patriots, and so on. Biden is coy enough to know how he can win again. The parties sit there and watch him do it.

  3. If Airlines are buying into this second idiocy of a Face Mask Mandate, they will suffer even greater decline, because people like myself will not put on a GD mask ever again, and we don’t give a rat’s rear end what our government thinks about it. So, the airlines had better get a clue if they want to stay in business.

    Get your heads out America, you have to know that if they are trying pull this crap upon us you must know they already have another deadly pathogen ready to be released upon us.


    Because America was the strongest nation on earth, we will be the first to be attacked to create an atmosphere suitable to our Alien visitors, and it is done by, “The Emotional Terraforming” of weak minds. You can call them Satan, the Devil, or spirits, none of them have our best interest at heart, and the face mask wearing is just a tool to keep us under control.

        • That’s a good point, but the FAA is going to do what the TSA wants. The Transportation Department is run by that leftist Pete.

          DHS lets million of illegals in without any screening, but they may lock down airports again.

        • Yes they did. When it was overruled, the DOJ announced they were going to appeal the ruling. But the only news I can find is from April 2022. There haven’t been new updates on the appeal (at least, none I can find). If the appeal wasn’t successful or hasn’t gone through yet, it’d be illegal to impose mask mandates on public transit.

          I suspect they know something about the appeal that we don’t. It seems obvious they’d have to address the 2022 ruling against masks before making claims they were coming back.
