Skip to comments.Laura Ingraham: Airport Workers Stole My Baptismal Cross!
Posted on 07/18/2011 5:34:08 PM PDT by Biggirl
Laura Ingrahams baptismal cross went missing from her checked luggage at the Newark airport this weekend, and the syndicated radio host says either a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) worker or a Continental Airlines employee is responsible.
Ingraham had just finished several radio and television appearance in New York City and was in a rush to the airport. She told The Daily Caller she normally carries her luggage on planes, but since she was pressed for time and was carrying copies of her new book, she checked a suitcase before her Friday evening flight from Newark to Denver.

Laura talked about this on her show today.
Her jewelry will never return.
Finders keepers; Losers weepers.
Newark airport is a s*** hole, it’s not surprising that it is loaded with thieves.
How much of this crap will Americans take before they boycott airports and refuse to return until the TSA has been dismantled and scrapped?
That's the only way it will ever change.
I'm doing my part. I haven't flown in seven years, though life would be much easier if I did.
When will the rest of the fliers get a clue?
This story has been pulled from FR before.
Laura does not talk to sites like the dailycaller.
This came about via Drudge.
Eliminate TSA and DHS.
Wasn’t pulled, it was moved to chat/bloggers. Search “Ingraham” in titles. Pops right up.
You left out “Open up another one!”
I told my wife the other day I thought it was weird when I noticed she hadn’t been wearing that gold cross that I have always seen around her neck . Very sad ,,,, I love Laura and I pray the cross finds it’s way back to her somehow .
Well it appears you were right, they did pull it, but not until it was up to sixty or so replies.
It’s an just alternative lifestyle.
I have to fly for business, otherwise I avoid it
At least they leave you a TSA note saying “Finders keepers, losers weepers”.
Never pack anything you really want to keep, you know the gubmit don’t pay good enough for all da haar’ed werk and besides we owes it too em.
Should be pretty easy for the TSA to bait and find these thieves..
But first they would have to care and be NON complicit..
Is it possible the TSA itself is complicit?..
Hmmm... that wasn't very Christian of them, now was it?
A answer like that is not very Christian either. No thief stealing is a real Christian. They can call themselves what they like, but true believing Christians don't go around stealing. Certainly not the ones I am around. Your answer wasn't really funny either. Don't give up the day job.
Those X-ray machines can sure come in handy if you are in a hurry to find items of value.
Those little gold dodads probably show up like stars on a dark night, just begging to go home with po TSA “officer”..
I would never put jewelry or any valuable or any semi valuable item in my checked luggage. Bad decision.
Oh my! Isn’t it just horrible to be treated like the rest of us? Well come to think of it, you weren’t...you just lost your cross. “Oh my!” /s
Lots ‘n’ lots of Muslims work for TSA now, don’t they? Shakin’ down and pattin’ down us kaffirs, right?
And it’s devout Muslim Somalis who are `cleaning’ the airplanes in many airports, too, aren’t they?
So why shouldn’t a blonde naked-faced kaffir female get relieved of the hated cross symbol of the evil `nasrani’ infidels?
(please to note my tagline)
My daughter learned that years ago when she stowed a favorite silver bracelet in her bag.
I'm surprised Laura would trust the TSA thieves. Kind of like putting a steak on the floor and trusting the dog to leave it alone.
“I’m doing my part. I haven’t flown in seven years, though life would be much easier if I did.”
One of the objectives of the exercise is to convince people to *not* fly.
The “Luddite left” hate airplanes and air travel. In Britain now there are calls to heavily tax flying in addition to the taxes they already have.
“The tax originally presented as an environmental measure will penalise not the well-off business traveller who flies on private jets but the ordinary British holidaymaker on a well-earned break.”
Think about it, there is absolutely *no* legitimate reason for the TSA to keep increasing its level of offensive behavior, and yet it does. Why do they *concentrate* on the most innocent of people, such as small children, people in wheelchairs and the handicapped, the sick and elderly?
Security almost has nothing to do with it anymore.
NEVER EVER put valuables in checked bags. I’ve had stuff stolen and learned my lesson.
Nothing but union thugs working the luggage.
Don’t know how may mooselimbs are with TSA, but there are a LOT of holder’s people same on flight line.
Likely the sleazy -8A types the TSA hires took it for the scrap metal value.
Sure Burrack. You sound just like a dimocrat. Your stupid comments are not funny to some of us. Take them elsewhere, or simply, grow up.
I am sorry that Laura was robbed. However, on NRO there are two threads on this and I think the purpose is to shame the Newark Airport into giving up the culprits. Good luck with that one!
The tsa uses the xray machines to see if there is anything in your bag worth stealing.
I had a flat piece of metal stolen. A sample of a piece of metal with a special coating of paint. Not really valuable, but stolen just the same. Guess some tsa goon wanted something shiny. Should have coated it with itching powder or habanero pepper oil. Would make their next trip to the little thugs room rather interesting.
Just be prepared and don’t pack anything that you can afford to have lifted.
You are obviously humor-challenged. How dark life must be for you.
Nothing like you fool.
I think the airlines would frown on that. The only times we have ever taken a gun on a plane was when we were going hunting in Canada. He does not take his handgun on regular trips.
Pinging back to this thread on August17th.
Tonight as Laura hosted Bill O’Reilly’s show, she was wearing what looked like her old cross, but may have been a replacement that looks very much the same.
I only caught a few minutes of the show, since I haven’t watched BOR regularly for a long time. Just clicked by and there was Laura with her cross returned or replaced.
Easy to say, but hard to do. If the stuff had no value I wouldn't bother to haul it around in luggage. I agree about small high-dollar things like jewelry, but all of us have to pack along some pretty valuable stuff from time to time. I always take a few knives, tools, an ASP baton and some other gizmos everywhere I travel, and I have no choice but to put them in checked baggage. I've never had anything stolen, but I know it's a possibility.
The creation of the TSA during the Bush administration was a travesty.
Couldn’t airports have hired contractors to handle security?
Why did we need to create an entire, new federal agency? The growth of bigger government under Bush did not make us any safer. We just gave up more of our liberty and more of our economic freedoms. We have to pay the taxes to cover TSA and Homeland Security.
It’s all a big mess.
I supported Bush, but some of his ideas didn’t sit well with me. He disappointed me, time and again.
I will say, though. I’m glad he was president on September 11th and not Al Gore. I do not believe for one moment that Gore would have moved aggressively against terrorism in the world. He would have rolled over and played dead.
Because they are an army of Amalekites, abusing their power and enjoying the thrill of control over weary travelers.
Deu 25:17-18 Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were come forth out of Egypt; 18 How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee, even all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast faint and weary; and he feared not God.
