Barack Obama faces 30 death threats a day, stretching US Secret Service
UK Telegraph ^ | 8/3/09 | Toby Harnden

Posted on 08/03/2009 8:49:17 PM PDT by Nachum

Since Mr Obama took office, the rate of threats against the president has increased 400 per cent from the 3,000 a year or so under President George W. Bush, according to Ronald Kessler, author of In the President's Secret Service.

Some threats to Mr Obama, whose Secret Service codename is Renegade, have been publicised, including an alleged plot by white supremacists in Tennessee late last year to rob a gun store, shoot 88 black people, decapitate another 14 and then assassinate the first black president in American history.

That really happened?

Of course not and I doubt that the vast majority of congress could either.

I’d really like candidates to have to undergo rigorous background checks before each election and random drug testing once elected.

And no keeping the results secret!

From what I have heard, that is SOP for the Secret Service guarding the presidential motorcade now. Yes, it is menacing, but I figure they are the experts are presidential security. Maybe things have changed since 9/11.

On Bush’s watch...never heard or saw it. Anyone?

Remember 30 reports a day includes threats by incarcerated prisoners and psychiatrically impaired people. Lots of these people are already locked up and are checked out by the agency. And you can bet that they are not all white.

Some threats to Mr Obama, whose Secret Service codename is Renegade ...

An institutional sense of humor? 1. They call former US Senator obama, "Mr obama", avoiding the title that the druggie in our White House is trying to usurp. 2. "Renegade" and "Traitor" are nearly equivalent in meaning. If I find the agent who chose that nickname for the socialist, I'll buy him a beer.

renegade (noun): traitor, betrayer, turncoat, deceiver, squealer, rat

“Instead of bringing in more agents - instantly identifiable because of their bulky suits, worn over bullet-proof jackets, and earpieces - the Secret Service directed agents to work longer hours to cover the extra load and to miss firearms training, physical fitness sessions and tests.”

That doesn’t surprise me. Nor would it surprise me to see the agents ballooning up. Have you seen recent pix of the boys in ATF? Many are looking real fat and would probably keel over from strokes if they had to run 50 yards.

I’d also guess that the average IQ at the SS has fallen 20 points or more in the past 10 years.

The Washington DC party and loot culture is attracting the dregs of society. I know some of these Marxist federal bureaucrats and they’re foul-mouthed, fat morons, spouting trash like “BUSHISHITLER!!!”

While Obama is not on my Top Ten List (bottom of the Bottom 10—maybe), woe to anyone who tries to do something stupid.

The Secret Service is charged with protecting the President of the United States regardless of who occupies the Oval Office. That is how it should be. The Office is bigger than the man. It might not seem like that now, but this too, shall pass either through the ballot box in 4 years or the end of his 2nd term in 8.

It’s our job to ensure the ballot box in 4, LOL!

I wonder how many of these threats come from people who voted for him and realize now they were ripped off...

Boo freakin’ Hoo! Man up, Zero! Other Presidents have actually been shot and/or plotted against. Did you really think that everyone believes in your Messiah act??

President Bush was the only President to ever have a movie made about being assassinated. Remember the "Assassins wanted" ads that were on the I'net?

On Bush’s watch...never heard or saw it. Anyone?

"I was driving east on the freeway and noticed that there were no cars on the other side of the freeway. Then I remembered that Bush was coming to town for something or other, and judging by the cops on all the overpasses, I figured this was why no one was on the freeway. I pulled off near the Gateway Transit Center to watch, as many people already were. This Presidential motorcade was a lot longer and more incredible than the one I had previously witnessed downtown. First, about 5 motorcycle cops cruised down the freeway way ahead of the motorcade, then probably about 7-10 normal cops, followed by about 3 suvs with guys hanging out of the back with guns, followed by 3 Presidential limousines (with two flags on either side of the front of the limousine), followed by pretty much the mirror image of what had just preceded them. In addition, there were a few ambulances trailing the entire thing. It was really pretty crazy. I can't imagine living in Washington, DC if this kind of thing has to interrupt traffic all the time. Must be nice to be the President and never have to worry about traffic (well, and all the other perks.)" - link

"What you can't see in that photo is that there are dudes with machine guns in the back of the suv's. Was crossing the street here in NYC a few years ago when Cheney's motorcade went by and I was trying to jaywalk behind and secret service dudes in the open back of SUV aimed there guns at me, that'll teach me not to jaywalk." - link

Since the president is starting to backtrack on his no taxes pledge, wouldn't it be more appropriate if his SS code name was "Reneger" rather than "Renegade"?

They're ready for Obama care!

“I’d also guess that the average IQ at the SS has fallen 20 points or more in the past 10 years.”

Who the hell would want to give their life for this trash? I sure wouldn't!

“The Washington DC party and loot culture is attracting the dregs of society. I know some of these Marxist federal bureaucrats and they’re foul-mouthed, fat morons, spouting trash like “BUSHISHITLER!!!””

Of course! We'll probably get a “gay Gestapo” soon. They're so enamored with “gays” in the military ... why not make them our Secret Police as Hitler did?

I truly find this shocking .. what is going on and the dam sheeple have their heads up their you know whats. If this isn't fascism and a Communist take over I don’t know what is. What does it take to wake up these freaking morons? pissed as hell. We attend out tea parties for sanity.

So THIS is why they made the very important decision the other day to drive a Secret Service SUV behind the limousine with all windows down, assault rifles loaded, shouldered, and leveled at the outside crowd, pointing menancingly from inside?

Just as in South America.

“I truly find this shocking .. what is going on and the dam sheeple have their heads up their you know whats. If this isn’t fascism and a Communist take over I don’t know what is. What does it take to wake up these freaking morons?”

Be patient. There’s reaction to obuma and the organization to confront the fascists in Washington is bubbling under the surface.

The states told DC to take their drivers license ID and shove it and now Washington has dropped the idea. The states are discovering their 10th amendment muscles. We need to let this play out.

Frankly, I’m impressed by conservative Americans who are playing by the rule of law and seeing if it still works, despite the fact that the thieves in Washington are breaking dozens of laws each day. This bodes well for the present and the future. That discipline of character and respect for our institutions can and will create an unstoppable force.

The thieving leftist thugs in DC are nothing more than an unruly mob, interested only in money, power and not working.

I found one incident this past winter very revealing and it showed me what we’re facing. Remember when obuma called on his supporters to meet and go door-to-door to gather signtaures pledging fealty to king obuma? Well, nobody showed up.

His leftist army was more interested in surfing bikini.com, eating fried chicken and collecting welfare checks. Today’s American leftists are cowards - fat, simpering cowards. You could not go to LA, DC and Chicago and raise a a single squad for the Lincoln Brigade. The American leftist now is a self-centered, fat egomaniac. They will not slip on a pack, grab a rifle and charge a perimeter for the glory of obuma.

The obuma thugs have overestimated their power over their followers. For all the indoctrination, for all the propaganda, for all the lies, the leaders of the American left haven’t created a disciplined leftist army. Instead, they’ve molded a gang of lazy and fat welfare slobs.

These Marxists in Washington are still living in the early 20th century, thinking they can lead a Bolshevik Army to march across America and create a worker’s paradise. They’re trying to duplicate Lenin’s revolution. What worked in Russia in 1917 won’t work in America in 2009. There wil be no civilian army as big and well-equipped as the military. All obuma has is a bunch of ignorant, fat, stupid leftists shaking the bushes and pretending it’s an army. It’s classic Sun-Tzu.

They’re fools, but dangerous fools. They’re stupid, but stupid people do stupid things.

We need to stay active and alert but not allow a bunch of conservative hotheads to roll the guillotine down Pennsylvania Avenue.

If I could draw parallel time lines between today and our first revolutionary war, I’d guess we’re at about 1770. We’re progressing well and moving much faster than I thought we would.

All these state resolutions, all the tea parties, all the citizens showing up at townhall meetings to confront the fascist, criminal congress, are a loud reaffirmation of our Declaration of Independence. And it will get louder. King obuma is in his death throes.

The Founders left us the documents, the freedom and the spirit to handle an emergency such as this. We will succeed. There will be justice.

I’m very encouraged and hopeful.

JMHO.

I am completely serious.

They did not shoot, and I do not think they —the Secret Service— was shouting, or giving orders.

But they had their rifles leveled at the crowd, as they were driving along in their SUV.

I do not mean they were in possession of weapons —it would be strange if they did not have any, or if they did not have very powerful weapons somewhere, or even on their person physically; that is a very basic tool of protecting POTUS, whomever he is.

Instead, what I mean is that those weapons were loaded, shouldered, and leveled at the crowed, and that they had every appearance of aiming in such a way that suggested that there was a high likelihood of some threat, or some type of violence.

I do not know what their orders were, or what type of information they may have been acting on.

I was hugely shocked to hear about this.

I love they don't refer to him as "President" obama but used the title when referring to President Bush.
