    Classy: Nothing good that POTUS Donald Trump does will ever placate the perpetually triggered and angry American Left, but what he did for a 10-year-old girl battling stage four brain cancer this Christmas is worthy of high praise indeed. Cleveland resident Oliviah Hall has been battling a brain tumor since 2017 after being diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme Grade IV. She was able to meet POTUS Trump during his midterm swing through Ohio and had a picture taken with him and her family.

    Secret Service agents breathed a collective sigh of relief when George H. W. Bush took office. Unlike previous presidents Lyndon Johnson and Jimmy Carter, Bush treated agents with respect and consideration. Bush 'made it clear to all his staff that none of them was a security expert, and if the Secret Service made a decision, he was the one to sign off on it, and they were never to question our decisions or make life difficult,' former agent Pete Dowling says.
  • Christmas Tree Speech - *LASER DOTS* Float on POTUS's Lecturn, Chest..?!

    11/29/2018 12:30:09 PM PST · by gaijin · 21 replies
    Probably innocent, but still very concerning: You can first see the red laser dot appear on the upper right corner of POTUS' lecturn, then again at 0:44 sec, and later at 1 min 05 seconds. I stopped watching to post this after seeing one minute. More disturbingly, the LASER DOT later appears on his CHIN. He's behind glass, but I understand he and Melania departed the event early. Innocent snafu by stupid journo..? Probing..?

The Times, citing a half-dozen people familiar with the altercation, reported that Kelly grabbed Lewandowski "by the collar and tried to have him ejected from the West Wing." The altercation occurred on Feb. 21 and was preceded by an argument between the two men, according to the newspaper. The two men were inside the Oval Office that day with...

    The Secret Service has intercepted a suspicious package addressed to former President Obama in Washington, D.C. The Secret Service said in a statement that the package, and another sent to the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton in New York, were identified as “potential explosive devices and appropriately handled as such.” The statement said that the Obamas and Clintons did not receive the packages, and were not at risk of receiving them. The package sent to the Clintons was reported earlier Wednesday and was intercepted late Tuesday night, according to the Secret Service. "The packages were immediately identified during routine...

    The Secret Service said Wednesday that an agent who blocked a reporter attempting to question senior White House adviser Jared Kushner was reacting to "an abrupt movement." "The actions of the special agent in this incident were in no way intended to impede those rights or the media’s access to a Secret Service protectee," the Secret Service said in a statement. "The actions were taken solely in response to an abrupt movement by an unknown individual who later identified themselves as a member of the media," the agency added. The Secret Service reviewed the Tuesday incident in which CBS News...

    (snip) -- A pair of Secret Service agents assigned to protect President Trump open up about the anxieties of their jobs and a pair of credible assassination threats they stopped in Manila. November 1996, President Clinton visited Manila for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum. Protests raged in the streets, with American flags being burned, so local police closed down many roads, allowing the Secret Service to chart a specific route for the president’s motorcade. As the president and members of his cabinet traveled from their hotel to the first venue of the day, “There was intelligence that came in, and...

The letter was intercepted Monday, the same day ricin-laced mail was sent to the Pentagon. Another letter with suspicious white powder caused a scare at Sen. Ted Cruz’s campaign headquarters in Houston, but the powder turned out not to be hazardous. The letter targeting Mr. Trump did not reach the White House, the Secret Service said in a statement.

    The U.S. Secret Service said Tuesday that it intercepted a suspicious envelope addressed to President Trump a day earlier, one of three reported instances of suspicious mail being sent to government-related offices in recent days. The Secret Service confirmed to The Hill that the suspicious envelope was not received at the White House, nor did it enter the building. The Secret Service did not comment on whether the suspicious letters at the White House and Pentagon may be related, but said it is working with law enforcement partners to investigate the matter. The Secret Service statement came hours after Pentagon...

    The US Secret Service will send their Men In Black to do a security sweep of Dublin and Doonbeg ahead of Donald Trump’s visit in November. White House confirmation of the two-day trip presents a headache for the Defence Forces who will be braced for large-scale protests. A source said a massive Garda and security operation is needed to safeguard the US President, who met with huge protests on a recent trip to the UK. Trump stirred up a political storm during the four-day visit after criticising British Prime Minister Teresa May in a newspaper interview. He was then snubbed...

    PLAINS, Ga. -- Jimmy Carter finishes his Saturday night dinner, salmon and broccoli casserole on a paper plate, flashes his famous toothy grin and calls playfully to his wife of 72 years, Rosalynn. "C'mon, kid," he says. She laughs and takes his hand, and they walk carefully through a neighbor's kitchen filled with 1976 campaign buttons, photos of world leaders and a couple of unopened cans of Billy Beer and then out the back door. Three Secret Service agents wait. They do this just about every weekend in this tiny town where they were born -- he almost 94 years...

    US counter-intelligence investigators discovered a suspected Russian spy had been working undetected in the heart of the American embassy in Moscow for more than a decade, the Guardian has learned. The Russian national had been hired by the US Secret Service and is understood to have had access to the agency’s intranet and email systems, which gave her a potential window into highly confidential material including the schedules of the president and vice-president. The woman had been working for the Secret Service for years before she came under suspicion in 2016 during a routine security sweep conducted by two investigators...

    Two people are injured after a driver fled from a U.S. Secret Service officer before eventually crashing into an oncoming car in Northern Virginia, the agency said Sunday. The pursuit began when a Secret Service Officer sought to pull over a vehicle driving the wrong way on I Street NW in Washington, the agency said, according to a statement posted on Twitter by an NBC Washington reporter. Instead of stopping, however, the driver exited onto I-66 traveling westbound in the eastbound lane, according to the statement. The driver then collided with another vehicle traveling eastbound, before fleeing the scene on...
