Why Obama’s Secret Service Has Failed So Miserably

October 1, 2014

We have seen over these last several years a complete meltdown in the Secret Service in the reign of Pharaoh god-king Obama.  The details are simply astonishing.

On September 19 a fence-jumper made it all the way to the East Room.  And then the Secret Service actually lied about how far the intruder got and how massively they screwed up.

In any other country that man would have been a terrorist with a bomb instead of a knife and he would have blown up our White House.

Shortly before that, the Secret Service allowed an armed felon to ride on an elevator with the Pharaoh god-king.

Before that, we had seven bullets that struck the window of Barack Obama’s private residence but went unnoticed for days.  Obama’s youngest daughter was inside at the time of the shooting.  It wasn’t even the Secret Service who noticed the bullet holes; it was a cleaning lady who observed broken glass.  It turns out that agents reported the gunfire but were told by their superiors to stand down.

Before that, eleven agents on Obama’s security detail were sent home after a week of drinking and sleeping with prostitutes while on duty.

After that, despite promises to get their act together and reform the agency, we had an agent on duty in Amsterdam become so drunk he was passed out in a hallway while on duty in a hotel.

That is nowhere near the full list of scandals, for what it’s worth.

They talk about “a pervasive culture of cover-up.”  Agents were told over and over, “Do not file any written report.”

Which is the exact same thing that is going on in all of Obama’s other scandals.

You look at the history of Secret Service screw ups and you tell me that the president of the United States has ever been placed in so much danger in any other administration.  I mean, the Secret Service has had a few issues, but nothing like this.  NOTHING like this.

The question is why this meltdown has happened during the rule of our Pharaoh god-king.

There are two reasons, with one being unique to the Secret Serve and the other being endemic to the cancer that is Obama’s presidency.

As to the former, imagine you are a Secret Service agent.  You have trained your entire professional career to be the absolute best at security and you have risen to the apex of your profession.  You have a rare level of pride in yourself, your professionalism and the renowned agency you serve.

Then you get to your assignment.  You are handed a bag of fecal matter and instructed to guard that bag with your life.

Do you think you’d feel at least slightly deflated?

THAT is a major part of the reason the Secret Service has so miserably collapsed during the Obama regime.  These professionals know what a sack of foulness Obama is.  We’re not talking about his race, of course, in spite of whatever blatant lies liberals want to spew because they are the spewers of lies; we’re talking about his loathsome personal character, his utter lack of integrity, his malignant narcissism.

What the Secret Service now have to protect is a disgrace.  And these professionals know it.

Do you know what the difference between the sack of fecal matter and Obama?  The sack of fecal matter draws flies and Obama tells lies.

Oh wait, never mind…

Lord of the flies

So if I’m a Secret Service agent and I’m told I have to either protect Obama or protect the sack of fecal matter, I would sigh, shrug my shoulders, resign myself to despair and ask for the sack.

And if I was then told that all the more senior agents had already chosen to guard the sack and I’d have to serve on the Obama detail instead, that’s when they’d hand me the bottle of booze to help get me through the shame of the next hours.  Which explains all the Secret Service agents drunk on the job.

It has always been the highest and most prestigious honor for a Secret Service agent to be chosen to serve on the security detail of the president of the United States of America.  Until now.

They are trying to do their best at guarding Obama, but you have to imagine the poor morale of guarding a truly dishonorable man.

The second reason is much more endemic and also serves to explain why ALL of Obama’s regime is failing, from his ObamaCare to his IRS to his intelligence community.

Let’s take the Secret Service.  A big hullabaloo was made over the fact that Obama had selected the first female Secret Service director ever.  I mean, wasn’t that just so wonderful?

You know what I would have preferred?  The best Secret Service Director ever.

It is simply an appalling fact that the very worst and most basic security lapses have occurred with Julia Pierson running the show.

I’m not in any way trying to claim that a woman couldn’t be the best director; I’m claiming that in being determined to find a woman Obama ignored the vast majority of the candidates who should have been considered for that job.

That’s always the problem with race or gender preferences; you end up with the most PC candidate rather than the best candidate.

Do you know what Obama is looking for whenever he appoints a senior-level bureaucrat for an important federal position?  The same damn thing Hitler did: personal fealty to the Führer.

That is why we’ve had massive screw up after massive screw up and nobody ever gets fired.  Because these bureaucrats weren’t put in their jobs because they were competent; they were put in their jobs because they would lie and cheat for Obama.

Why wasn’t Kathleen Sabelius fired when the ObamaCare rollout was so miserably screwed up it literally became a joke?  Why wasn’t Hillary Clinton destroyed over the Benghazi fiasco?  Why wasn’t Eric Holder fired when guns that HE put into Mexican drug cartel members’ hands were used to murder a US Border Patrol agent and then Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress for refusing to allow them the materials necessary for congressional oversight?  Who was fired and criminally prosecuted for the political targeting of conservatives by the IRS?  Obama just threw his whole intelligence community under the bus and claimed “they” screwed up; so who the hell has been FIRED?

In Julia Pierson, in Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sabelius, in Attorney General Eric Holder, in IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, in Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki, in Director of Central Intelligence John Brennan, you have people who are willing to lie for their messiah and cover up his crimes that would otherwise have gotten him impeached years ago.

That’s all that matters to Obama.  Because while real leaders try to fix the problems, Obama only cares about fixing the blame.  While real leaders always accept responsibility and never claim credit, Obama always claims credit and NEVER accepts responsibility.  And that cancer has affected the entire government and all of its agencies and all of its personnel.

That’s why the Secret Service is so completely screwed up.  The same reason our health care system is completely screwed up and the same reason our intelligence community is so screwed up and the same reason the whole country is so screwed up.

Only the Secret Service is cursed with the responsibility to guard the turd who has done all the screwing up.  And that distasteful burden is eating away at their souls.

So please, everyone, please give the men and women who risk their lives the dignity and honor they deserve and render your very best latte salute to your Secret Service…

Obama latte salute2.

Fwiw, I’m sure those Marines would readily choose to salute the aforementioned sack rather than Obama, too.

The Untold Story Of How A Man And His Gun Saved The Day During Tucson Shooting

January 12, 2011

One of the most heroic stories during the horrific shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and many others is the story of Joe Zamudio:

Joe Zamudio was buying a pack of cigarettes nearby when the first shots were fired. “I ran out the doors and there is a man running and he says, ‘Shooter. Shooter. Get down,'” says Zamudio.

John Blackstone: “You heard the shots and you went running toward the shots?”

Zamudio: “I know. That’s pretty crazy, huh?”

Well, certainly pretty incredible, anyway.  Just imagine yourself running – completely unarmed – toward a mass-murdering shooter.

Would you do that?  I sure don’t think I would.

Ah, but it turns out that neither did Zamudio.  Pay particular attention beginning at 4:39 in the Youtube video:

A transcript of the most relevant moment of the interview:

Ed Shultz: “Did you ever think of drawing your firearm or did you make the determination that you didn’t have to?”

Joe Zamudio: “Sir, when I came through the door I had my hand on the butt of my pistol and I clicked the safety off.  I was ready to kill him.  But I didn’t have to do that and I was very blessed that I didn’t have to go to that place.”

Schultz:  “You would have used that firearm?”

Zamudio:  “You’re damn right!”

And pardon my saying so, but damn right he was damn right.

But it’s important to recognize that Joe Zamudio did NOT run unarmed toward a killer who was gunning unarmed people down.  Joe Zamudio was armed himself.  Rather than being a helpless target, Joe Zamudio was a warrior who ran toward a shooting scene because he knew that he could fight the slimebag on his own terms.

Had he not been so armed, the events would almost certainly have been very different – and far more tragic.

It’s still not clear exactly what happened immediately before Joe Zamudio ran onto the scene and put the forces of light over the top in a deadly battle with the forces of darkness.

The man who started the takedown of monster Jared Loughner was a 74 year-old retired Army colonel named Bill Badger (and thank God for a soldier to have been in the right place at the right time) who had been shot in the head and bleeding heavily.  Somehow even though seriously wounded he managed to grab Loughner by the wrist and took the killer down to the ground.

Here’s the basic account from the Washington Post:

TUCSON, Ariz. — Three people helped subdue a gunman accused of attempting to assassinate Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killing six people at a political event in Arizona.

Pima Co. Sheriff Clarence Dupnik says Patricia Maisch (MAYSH) was waiting in line with her husband to get a photo with Giffords. When the shooting started, she ran up to the suspect and grabbed the empty magazine, then grabbed a full magazine as he was loading it into the gun.

Two men helped subdue the suspect – Roger Sulzgeber (SULZ-gay-ber), who was also in line, and Joseph Zimudie (Zah-MOO-die), who was at a nearby Walgreens and heard the shooting.

Maisch says she believes the two men got to the gun the same time she got to the magazine.

And here’s the account of 61 year-old heroine Patricia Maisch:

Ms Maisch told Channel 4 News that she had been waiting in line to meet the Congresswoman when she heard what she realised was a gunshot.

“In that split second I had to make a decision whether to run or to lay down on the ground,” she told our Washington Correspondent, Sarah Smith.

“I decided I would be a target if I ran because the gunman was now just steps from me and I lay down.”

A teenage girl next to her – being shielded by her mother – was shot three times.

“I was laying there on the concrete wondering how bad it was going to be and how it was going to hurt,” she said.

“And, instead of a gunshot , the shooter was now on the ground just on top of me nearly – and there were two gentlemen on top of him.

Somebody said ‘get the gun’, and I was already up on my knees and over his waist. The gun was out of my reach, but he was reaching into his pocket with his left hand and pulling out a magazine, which fell on the sidewalk.

“I managed to get the magazine before he could get it. I got it secure in my hand.”

While Ms Maisch knelt on the gunman’s legs and ankles to stop him flailing, she noticed that one of the men also helping hold him down was bleeding from a head wound

You get a sense of just how critical the moment was that Joe Zamudio sprinted onto the scene.  Patricia Maisch was lying on the ground waiting to die when all of a sudden a heroic struggle began to take place.

But just how long was a seriously wounded and bleeding 74 year-old man going to be able to take on and control a 22 year-old psychopath?  Not very.

Had Joe Zamudio not arrived at the moment he did, a terrible and tragic scene would have been at least TWICE as terrible and tragic.  Police were still minutes away.

And Joe Zamudio was able to race toward the gunfire when everyone else was literally running away from it because he was armed.  With a gun.

Now, allow me to digress for a moment to point out that most mainstream media accounts make out Patricia Maisch to be the hero who disarmed the shooter.  Why?  Well, because the colonel is a military man – and the left despises the military.  And Joe Zamudio (more about what the left says about him in a moment) was carrying a gun.  Which means he’s clearly a villain.

This is what we’ve got from ABC’s “The View” regarding what they think about Joe Zamudio – a guy who only selflessly raced from safety to confront a killer, turn the tide and saved a whole bunch of lives:

“Looks like white trash, talks like white trash and for all intents and purposes, IS WHITE TRASH. This thug said he “carries” a gun and unlocked the safety and was “ready to kill” (in his words). He later went on to say he was “blessed” that he didn’t have to. Can we say oxymoron here? Sickening.”

You and I have a very different notion of what is “sickening,” you slimeball.  Tag, you’re it.

I took a screenshot of ABC’s website, because you know this is going to be taken down – liberals and “moral courage” go together like peanut butter and spinach – and liberals will be denying that, yes, they really ARE this amazingly vile and loathsome:

How many times do I have to say this?  If you are a liberal, you ought to be ashamed.  Just ashamed.

And the above gets right to the heart of why I got into blogging: because while I haven’t had to display the courage of Joe Zamudio, I’ll be damned if I’m going to do nothing and allow depraved moral idiot liberal slimeballs like our example above to spew his filth.

The mainstream media leftists are going to tell this story in their own image, but the fact of the matter is that if it hadn’t been for that “white trash” “thug” Joe Zamudio and his gun, no rational mind even wants to think about how many more innocent people would have been murdered or terribly wounded.

There’s an interesting thing about such shootings involving crazed psychos: the degree of carnage is directly related to how long it takes before another gun shows up. The cities and states with the most restrictive gun control laws have the highest levels of gun violence because criminals don’t care about laws.
