On February 9 an I-Team reporter in San Diego spoke with assistant port director Al Hallor who admitted that “partner agencies” have found “weapons of mass effect.”

Reporter:  So, specifically, you’re looking for the dirty bomb? You’re looking for the nuclear device?

Mr Hallor:  Correct. Weapons of mass effect.

Reporter:  You ever found one?

Mr Hallor:  Not at this location.

Reporter:  But they have found them?

Mr Hallor:  Yes.

An I-Team reporter also interviewed former Secret Service agent and airline security director Glen Winn who said that Hallor appears to be credible:

“This person was, I believe, knowledgeable, has a very important position with the port and the government and as such has that knowledge. You posed some very serious questions as to security gaps and discoveries that perhaps have taken place in this area. I want to know how many and where did you find them so if I’m in that area, driving around and I see something that is out of place, I make a phone call.”

The Customs and Border Protection Department did come out later and try to douse Hallor’s comments by saying that he was “just nervous” and “mis-spoke.” But the damage has been done and the disturbing revelation about “weapons of mass effect” not only points to a possible government cover-up, but it also suggests that Hallor may have inadvertently spilled the beans about a dirty bomb plot to attack the U.S.

Remember it was February 9 when Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said that the threat of terrorism against the US homeland was “at its most heightened state” since 9/11.

It’s taken decades but at long last the movie adaptation of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged is hitting theaters April 15, fittingly enough. In her 1957 novel, Rand proselytizes her thesis that “Government ‘help’ to business is just as disastrous as government persecution… the only way a government can be of service to national prosperity is by keeping its hands off.”

The film’s executive producer Harmon Kaslow said that the Hollywood brain trust does not think enough people will be interested in the message of Atlas Shrugged, so Kaslow brought clips to CPAC last week hoping the “conservatives” there would spread the word of the film’s April release.

Many of those who saw the clips say Atlas Shrugged Part One appears to be a faithful adaptation of Rand’s prescient, philosophical novel.

Philip Klein of the American Spectator wrote, “The dramatic scenes were true to the book.”

“The filmmakers went for a ‘ripped from the headlines’ type vibe, with images of the economy tanking, the country’s infrastructure collapsing, protests raging in the streets, Congress passing statist legislation, and a TV news anchor leading a panel discussion between some of the book’s characters.”

Admittedly, I’m not a blind follower of Rand’s atheist Objectivist philosophy; that said, many of her views regarding the importance of rational self interest, individual liberty, and how collectivism destroys creativity, innovation, and industry are hard to refute.

“When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors – when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you – when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice – you may know that your society is doomed.”— Ayn Rand, “Money Speech” from Atlas Shrugged

I am immensely interested … I am genuinely enthusiastic …
