WASHINGTON (AP) — For the second time in three days, the White House is on lockdown because of a security breach.

The Secret Service says two people threw something over the fence surrounding the White House complex — one person from the south side and one from the north.

The two people were being detained and questioned Thursday afternoon. Secret Service officers were ordering people in the West Wing to stay inside.

Those TEA Party militia KKK Nazis again I’m sure. I hope they rushed Harry Reid to a bunker just in case he was a secondary target. Somehow I have a feeling this is going to drastically increase between now and November.

Why would the White House be on lockdown because a couple of yahoos threw something over the fence, which is a long way from the actual building?

Really? Lockdown?

To build he meme that the prez is in danger due to right wing hysteria and tie it into Bundy’s militia guards.

Makes declarations of martial law easier around election day if there’s a paper trail.

Ask the lesser evil crowd. They have a personal relationship with it’s abandonment.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/crime/white-house-on-lockdown-after-items-tossed-over-fence/2014/05/08/1f2a7170-d6e6-11e3-95d3-3bcd77cd4e11_story.html

Evan J. Graham allegedly threw a cassette tape over the north fence line, the Secret Service said. Von Greenbrier Lerriche is suspected of throwing “miscellaneous papers” over the south fence line.

The items were thrown “in very close proximity,” Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said — both at about 2:52 p.m.

President Obama was out of town Thursday, headlining Democratic Party fundraisers in California.

According to a Secret Service statement, Graham was transported to George Washington University Hospital “after he complained of a medical condition while being interviewed.” He will be moved to the Metropolitan Police Department’s 2nd District station once he receives medical clearance, the statement said.

Lerriche has been transported to the 2nd District station for processing.

A Secret Service official said it was “unknown” whether the two men were together.

Does that mean together as a gay couple? If so, they will get off. No pun intended. BWAHAHAHAHA

The White Hut handlers happily swing into double-lockdown mode because the sheeple simply HAVE TO realize that His Holiness, Obama, faces more potential death-threat activity than that inconsequential worm, Trey Gowdy.

I'm guessing:

The liberal types that visit the White House these days probably just toss their Chipotle bags when they are done eating. In this case, a couple of bags landed over the fence.

My cynicism is telling me ‘they’ are setting ‘us’ up for something.

I got a ‘glimpse’ of one of the tossers, looked like he could have been BO’s ‘son’.....

Think the ‘tosser’ knew if he complained of chest pains he would just go to hospital not jail like his ‘buddy’??

If they don’t arraign them till Monday, the one will get to cool his heels in jail while the other will spend the weekend in the Hospital....

I will readily admit that it is doubtful that anyone who would toss something over the White Hut fence and gets caught immediately probably hasn’t the ‘brain matter’ to plan something, no matter how trivial it may be.

Let’s see... North fence and South fence, around the WH are considered to be in ‘very close proximity’? They are probably hundreds of yards apart!! Idiots.
