Is the SS is trying to “Serpico” Obama?
And the hits just keep on coming for the Secret Service: The Washington Examiner today reports on yet another serious lapse in security involving President Obama. The latest incident occurred just two weeks ago when the president traveled to Atlanta to visit the CDC—and ended up in an elevator with an armed man who has no fewer than three convictions for assault and battery. That’s a lapse on two fronts, explains the Washington Post: Anyone in such close proximity to the president is supposed to be screened for weapons and criminal history. Unbeknownst to Secret Service agents traveling with Obama, this person had both. He was reportedly a contractor from a private security firm who was operating the elevator during the presidential visit.
The man drew the attention of Secret Service agents when he refused to comply with orders to stop filming the president in the elevator with his smartphone. When agents questioned him afterward and then learned he had a criminal history, they called in his supervisor. The man got fired immediately and had to turn over his weapon to his boss—which is the first time the agents learned that he was armed.
I’m going to start calling Obama a “Player’s President.”

Current educational codes, tracking liberal-Left, are perpetuating illusions about sex and gender. The basic Leftist premise, descending from Marxism, is that all problems in human life stem from an unjust society and that corrections and fine-tunings of that social mechanism will eventually bring utopia. Progressives have unquestioned faith in the perfectibility of mankind.
NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — The military uses drones to carry bombs or conduct surveillance, but anyone can buy a drone without a weapon that uses high-definition cameras and GPS, even criminals.
Authorities say they captured a New Jersey man, identified as Duane Holmes, in Pennsylvania with not only dozens of stolen cell phones in his car, but also a drone.
An officer had observed the same drone hovering over the Upper Saucon Police Department conducting surveillance the day before the burglary of a Verizon store in town, CBS 2’s Christine Sloan exclusively reported.
“The way to get into buildings, the easiest way to get into commercial buildings is through different ducts and vents that are on the rook, and that is a way to check and case how they are going to get into buildings without having to climb on the roof in advance,” security expert Dan Coleman explained
Despite Early MSM Hype, Coffee Party Remains Stuck in Insignificance
Today is National Coffee Day. Many outlets such as Dunkin’ Donuts, Mickey Ds, and others are offering free coffee as a result. And since it is National Coffee Day your humble correspondent, a devout caffeine addict from way back, decided to Google search on all things coffee. What I discovered was something long forgotten by myself and everybody else…assuming they even remembered it in the first place. I am referring to the Coffee Party.
“When 9/11 happened and they reconfigure the Secret Service — took it out of Treasury; put it in Homeland Security — and made the director a Senate-confirmed position, it seems to me it became much more of a political appointee as opposed to a director who is a career servant person”
One issue candidate running for governor of Rhode Island.
- A national security staffer in the Obama administration said the president has been seeing ‘highly accurate predictions’ about the rise of the ISIS terror army since ‘before the 2012 election’
- Obama insisted in his campaign speeches that year that America was safe and al-Qaeda was ‘on the run’
- The president said during Sunday’s ’60 Minutes’ program that his Director of National Intelligence had conceded he underestimated ISIS
- But the administration aide insisted that Obama’s advisers gave him actionable information that sat and gathered dust for more than a year
- ‘He knew what was at stake,’ the aide said of the president, and ‘he knew where all the moving pieces were’
- Obama takes daily intelligence briefings in writing, he explained, because no one will be able to testify about warning the president in person about threats that the White House doesn’t act on
When Schenectady High School student Draven Rodriguez started a petition campaign earlier this month in hopes of getting a special senior portrait into his yearbook the story and photo went viral.
Draven is dressed in a suit and holding his cat Mr. Bigglesworth in the part earnest, part campy portrait by Vincent Giordano of Trinacria Photography, as pink and blue lasers criss-cross the background and a second image of Mr. Bigglesworth hovers overhead.
Senior portraits in the yearbook at the upstate New York school are supposed to be far more plain and straightforward, so Draven knew his chances of jazzing up the section with his custom pic were slim. His petition – which got 7,400 signatures, far surpassing its 500 signature goal – and the widespread attention on social media and news sites got the photograph a lot of attention and views and helped bring about a compromise and a new photo that was released today.
Draven wrote an update at his petition page, saying: “I don’t want to even discuss the number of signs this has gotten. It’s nuts…
“The school and I have worked out a compromise we’re all happy with. It’ll be in there, just not in the senior section. More news to follow…”

Maybe this time the sweater-vest tone-deaf one can refrain from making online pornography a main issue in his campaign. With so much wrong with the world Santorum gnawed on the margin of the 1st amendment. Was he trying to lose? I’m not an online pornographer, and I wouldn’t mind if it went away on its own volition, but bringing that up when we were trying to oust an Obama that was transferring the nation’s wealth from earners to parasites was borderline silly, and he deserved to be bounced from the race.
Republican operative Alex Castellanos said Santorum will have to take a different approach in 2016 to succeed.
“Santorum is a great guy and a good candidate, but Ted Cruz has sucked all the oxygen out of that room and there is no breath left for Santorum with evangelicals,” Castellanos said. “He would be better off running as anti-establishment populist who happens to be conservative on social issues than a social conservative who happens to be a Republican.”
Can we please stick to jobs, money and small government? Social conservatism are recommendations and conversation,s it is not more law from the government. Even if that law is blocking pornography it still requires policing and snooping and control, and that makes me more uncomfortable than online fornication. Don’t Tread On Me doesn’t mean Don’t Tread On Me except for that stuff I find icky.
The Foley family nods in approval.
To be fair, KFCs are privately owned, so they can do what they want when it comes to certain things – no bacon, no handi-wipes.
But is it too much to ask that we not eventually have this as compulsory because we have been over-whelmed by Sharia proponents.
Here’s my plan:
Step two is to not subsidize these parasites.
What’s step one?
Eradicate leftists. which makes step two unnecessary.
