56th Presidential Inaugural ^ | Revised 1/12/2009 | United States Secret Service

Posted on 01/12/2009 9:28:10 PM PST by VanShuyten

The United States Secret Service, under the leadership of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and in cooperation with its local, state and federal security and public safety partners, has developed an overall security plan for the 56th Presidential Inaugural on Tuesday, January 20.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has designated the Inaugural as a National Special Security Event (NSSE). When an event is designated an NSSE, the Secret Service assumes its role as the lead federal agency for the design and implementation of the operational security plan. The Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), the U.S. Capitol Police and the U.S. Park Police as well as a number of other federal and local agencies will play an active role in securing this event and resources will be deployed to maintain the level of security needed for the designated events.

I wouldn’t want to be Director of Homeland Security for the “57th” Inaugural.

By that time, Obama’s restrictions on how HS can function will be so ridiculous that no one with any talent will be left to protect any of us.

What qualified person would be foolish enough to play by his rules.

That is if it even happens which after a term of Obama does not look good right now.

A bit off topic, but a way to possibly give Obongo grief:

Urgent PUMA needs help to get Obama investigated by the FEC for his contributions

Dear Puma PAC,

We have one last chance to urge the FEC to audit the Obama campaign finance reports. The very good news is that Congressional Quarterly and American Thinker have both picked up on our efforts.

See here:

Because of us, the story of the millions and millions of dollars in shady campaign contributions is not being brushed under the rug.

The FEC is meeting this week to discuss changes to its oversight processes. Please send them an email and call today and tell them to “Audit the Obama Campaign!”

The election is over. We are NOT trying to rehash old battles. The issue here is FUTURE elections. After $750 million dollars of money raised from undisclosed donors, foreigners, and corporate bundlers, Obama has blazed the trail for future candidates to simply bypass public funding and BUY the Oval Office. It is unacceptable, and only the threat of an audit will keep these politicians honest.

Simple follow the instructions below to send your letter and call.

Thank you and Good Luck,

RE: Audit for Cause

Dear Commissioner,

I am writing to URGE you to open an audit “for cause” of the Obama for America Campaign (FEC Registration # C00431445) and the Obama Victory Fund (C00451393). I am a member of Puma PAC, People United Means Action, a democratic reform movement of grass-roots voters.

Publicly funded candidates know they must be able to account for their finances. But what happens when there is no audit mandated?

President-elect Barack Obama spent a record $741 million on his campaign but has disclosed donors for only $485 million of his windfall. Many of those donors are subject to questions about exceeding campaign donation limits and being legitimate donors. His campaign spent $309 million on Broadcast Media (versus $63 million by the McCain Campaign) while groups like ACORN received funding and abused voter registration processes.

In addition to the $255 million from undisclosed donors, our studies (MUR 6142) of the reports filed with your agency, by the Obama Campaign, through the Post-General Report, show the following irregularities in their submissions:

· $2 million — Approximately, in contributions over the $4,600 limit
· $26 million — Contributions over the $2,300 per campaign limit, reallocated without contributor affirmation.
· $4-6 million — Contributions from Foreign Addresses (over 4,000 contributors)

A total of more than 2.5 million donor transactions were submitted to the FEC, with some donors having hundreds of transactions. Many records showed errors on city, state and zip code information and a single donor could have several name variations. Some of the records were flagrant trash like JFGGJJFGJ, JGTJ and KHV, KHV and HKVKV, K VKN K V and HDUSAHFD, DAHSUDHU. Numerous donors had a single letter given for their last name. Others were listed as ANONYMOUS. Our personal favorite was the contributor Doodad Pro, whose occupation was “Loving” and employer was “You”. The records show 1565 transactions from him.

The numerous campaign limit exceedances, large expense/receipt discrepancy and questionable donor record reporting all warrant audit of the Obama Campaign Finances. The American People need an audit of the Obama for America (C00431445) and Obama Victory Fund (C00451393).

We are depending on the FEC to assure compliance with fair practices. Please audit the Obama Presidential Campaign Funds.

Thank you for your consideration of this matter.

Your Name and State
Puma PAC Member

“Feds Cite Racist Chatter for ‘Higher State of Alert’ in Inauguration”
By James Gordon Meek

SNIPPET: “Federal agents are on “a higher state of alert” because of hate talk by white supremacists about Barack Obama’s Inauguration, officials told the New York Daily News on Tuesday.

“That chatter is out there, no doubt about it,” one senior FBI agent in Washington told me this afternoon, adding that no credible plots against the 56th Presidential Inauguration have been detected.

The Bureau has ordered agents in all 56 field offices to “shake the trees” in advance of the Jan. 20 swearing-in of the 44th President, who will become the first African-American to occupy the Oval Office. “They’re talking to sources to determine if there is any threat information in regard to the Inauguration,” the FBI source said.

“Everybody in law enforcement dealing with that particular (white supremacist) ‘clientele’ is on a higher state of alert,” a senior agent at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told The News.

The ATF has expertise infiltrating white supremacist groups. A classified threat assessment for the Inauguration by the FBI and Homeland Security Department citing agitated hate groups was sent to police agencies this week.

Counterterrorism officials have also picked up chatter from Islamic militants, but the agitated domestic hate groups are “the big concern,” said another FBI official.”
