Every organization is made of people, though, something we conservatives remember more often than the libs.
I can imagine the Secret Service being a place where it’s easy to feel above the law, because in so many cases, they basically are. Maybe it was hard for some of them to draw a line.
Sh!t runs down hill?
That's certainly possible.But having done some traveling in the Third World my first belief is that,after having looked around a bit,*no* guy could *possibly* be desperate enough,crazy enough,drunk enough to want to get within 50 feet of any local hooker.Hell,I would get within 50 feet of a *First* World hooker myself,but I guess that's just me.
You are BIGtime wrong! Every organization has been morally dumbdowned by the commie usurper. Big Sis is going to the bighouse for perjury, GSA head pleads 5th, DOJ Holder furious crap, Salazar ignoring court, etc etc. Why would some scumbag secret service be any different? The secret service is just a job now, nothing to do with Honor and Country.
I have known quite a few of them and most of them are really good guys who are honorable and serious about their jobs. I have also known a few who enjoyed their drink and had a wandering eye.
You can say the same thing throughout law enforcement, the courts, churches, boy scouts, the Amish, social services, banks, the CIA, the military, and any other organization that is composed of men and women.
I suspect the issue here is that one or a few compromised themselves (pretty serious given their mission) and the others did not do anything about it (also compromising the mission) but that is just speculation and I will wait to hear more.
Unless being a Secret Service agent negates their humanity, making them either more human or less human, then they have the same strengths and failings as other human beings, and are able of the highest ideals and the basest instincts applicable to people. This means that while they are brave people sworn to protect the office of the presidency, are well trained and definitely well selected, they are still humans which means out of a given sample there will be those who would do bad/stupid things. Being a SService agent, just like being a cop or a soldier or a priest, doesn’t make one immune to sin, stupidity and senseless behaviour.
The Black Panthers have been stumping for some good paying jobs. There are now some openings.
Around the time he was inaugurated, I heard that Obama brought some of his own Chicago thugs with him into the Secret Service. I haven’t heard any more about that, and I don’t know for sure whether it’s true, but I think it’s certainly possible.
Maybe these 12 SS agents were intending to formally execute a subpoena for the Usurper to appear before a secret, federal grand jury...
Moving Secret Service from Treasury Dept. to Dept. of Homeland Security was a major error, IMO. We all know what an unmitigated disaster Homeland Security has been...
At worst, the Secret Service agents were acting like ordinary United Nations diplomats.
I would suggest an amendment to your statement thus: “the Secret Service WAS an honorable institution.”
Honor and integrity flow from the top, and conversely, dishonor and corruption flow from the top too. It is likely these agents have seen the absolute corruption flowing from Zerobama and Mooch-el: his flaunting of the Constitution, their “do as I say and not as I do”, blowing huge sums of taxpayer money on ultra-luxurious vacations, extravagant White House parties for their Hollywood fat-cat supporters.
Takes the heat off the GSA.
It would be more believable to me if they were claiming one or two agents were involved. The story as it is being told doesn’t ring true. There are bad apples in every group, hard to believe there would be that many in that group.
For this to be a hatchet job, there would have to be no evidence of someone breaching the secure area with the cooperation of at least one officer.
I don’t believe that to be the case. I think there was a security breach, and that the SS took their normal precautions when faced with a compromised unit - they replaced it.
The hooker part is just the reason why it’s juicy news being spread by the tabloid CNN. As for the accusations against others, the unauthorized visitor probably wasn’t logged, was let into a secure area by officers or the agent in charge, was probably seen by others in the unit, and probably wasn’t logged out of the secure area, all significant breaches of the security protocol.
The actual embarrassing part about it is being told by the local police that your security was compromised. It would have been one thing if this was discovered internally, that it came from an outside source means heads are going to roll as an example.
I don’t believe it either. To the best of my knowledge the SS is highly supervised and if they are out of the country guarding someone they are on duty 24/7. They rotate them in and out of hotels to sleep but thats about it. Its not like they get off at 5PM and just go off anywhere they please. I saw this article yesterday and I thought it was really fishy.
the Secret Service was moved out of Treasury and into the Department of Homeland Security.
I’m finding it hard to believe
