    A man arrested near the White House Sunday morning is a former Memphis police officer who had an arsenal of weapons in his car and believed the CIA had implanted a chip in his head, according to court documents. Timothy J. Bates, 37, of Collierville, Tenn. appeared in a District of Columbia court Monday morning on charges of illegally carrying a rifle or shotgun. According to court documents, Bates was approached by uniformed members of the Secret Service Sunday at the corner of 17th Street NW and Pennsylvania Avenue as he appeared to be publicly urinating. He told the officers...

    Donald Trump Jr., his wife Vanessa Trump, and Kellyanne Conway are dropping Secret Service protection, Fox News has confirmed. The move to get rid of round-the-clock protection came after Trump Jr. wished to have more privacy. Other family members of the president will remain under Secret Service protection. Secret Service protection is mandated by law to protect the U.S. president’s immediate family members, unless told otherwise.
  • Anthony Bourdain I'd Poison Trump & Kim Jong-un ... If They Asked Me to Cater (CNN Reporter)

    TMZ ^ | 09/08/17
    Anthony Bourdain would dish poison if Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un made reservations for 2. We got Bourdain Thursday at LAX and our intrepid photog wondered -- what would the "Parts Unknown" host serve if asked to cater a peace talk meeting between the U.S. Prez and North Korea's dictator? Check it out ... pretty clear where Bourdain stands with what he'd serve. HINT -- it's vegetarian, but also deadly. Also, doesn't sound like he's got a soft spot for Kim Jong-un, who he calls a "chubby, evil little f***."
  • Missouri Senate Ready To Expel Lawmaker Who Threatened Trump’s Life

    By Jerry Picket Missouri Lt. Gov. Mike Parson informed a state Democratic lawmaker who threatened President Trump’s life to resign by September 13 or the state Senate will move to expel her. Parson, a former sheriff who also serves as the president of Missouri’s State Senate, pointed to a section of the Missouri Constitution that relates to penalties for lawmakers guilty of “contempt and disorderly conduct.” Missouri Democratic State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal called for the assassination President Donald Trump last week in a Facebook post that stated: “I hope Trump is assassinated!” during an exchange with a left-wing activist...

    Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal must have found out the hard way that the Secret Service don't play and she went from she won't apologize to a very public apology in just a few short days... sort of. She told us we all make mistakes. Not like hers, but we do. She also told us that we're not to judge her. So much for humility and contrition.

    The Secret Service is now looking into threats that a Democratic state senator from Missouri posted on Facebook. State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal was responding to a comment, saying she hopes President Trump gets assassinated. She has since deleted her Facebook comment. (TWEETS-AT-LINK) Chappelle-Nadal told the Kansas City Star she made the comments “out of frustration with the 'trauma and despair'” caused by Trump's remarks after the violent clashes in Charlottesville. “The way I responded this morning was wrong,” she added. “I’m frustrated. Did I mean the statement? No. Am I frustrated? Absolutely. The president is causing damage. He’s causing hate."...

    IWB ^ | Pamela Williams
    The Secret Service is no longer on the property at Trump Tower. I had read awhile back there was a dispute over the cost. Whatever the reason, it does not sound good to me. Because Trump Tower is President Trump’s permanent home, it should be monitored very carefully. The official reason is the following: “After much consideration, it was mutually determined that it would be more cost effective and logistically practical for the Secret Service to lease space elsewhere,” Amanda Miller said in an email to the Post. But Secret Service spokeswoman Catherine Milhoan told the paper that the agency...

    When Kathy Griffin posed for a photoshoot holding a fake decapitated, bloody head of President Donald Trump in June, she likely didn’t think about the wide-reaching implications of her so-called “joke.” While her controversial stunt resulted in some serious professional consequences, it also earned her a lengthy visit from the U.S. Secret Service. Secret Service agents reportedly tracked down Griffin and interviewed her in person for more than an hour. Further, the investigation into the bloody head debacle remains open. Griffin’s attorney, Dmitry Gorin, has claimed the comedian was merely exercising her “First Amendment rights to tell a joke.” “When...

    The Daily Caller ^ | May 13, 2013 | Jamie Weinstein, Senior editor
    Just months after being slimed by President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, Mitt Romney supporter and businessman Frank VanderSloot was informed that he was going to be audited not only by the Internal Revenue Service, but by the Labor Department as well. VanderSloot’s saga was told by columnist Kimberley Strassel in the Wall Street Journal last July. In April 2012, VanderSloot, who served as the national co-chair of Mitt Romney’s presidential finance committee, was one of eight Romney backers to be defamed as ”wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable records” in a post on the Obama campaign’s website. The post, entitled “Behind the...

    O'Grady is still on payroll, maintains security clearance and was never placed on ‘Do Not Admit’ list The senior Secret Service agent who said she did not want to take "a bullet" for President Trump did not suffer several disciplinary actions imposed on other agents and officers for allegations of similarly serious or lesser misconduct, according to multiple sources from the Secret Service community and attorneys specializing in federal law enforcement labor and employment law. Kerry O'Grady, the agent in question, was removed from her position as head of the Secret Service's Denver district in March amid an investigation into...

Steve Scalise in the hospital—Scalise was wounded in the attack on a GOP baseball practice earlier in the day.

    Calling her firing from CNN “censorship,” comedian Kathy Griffin said in a press conference Friday that she would stand up for free speech in the face of fallout from a controversial image of President Trump she tweeted this week. “I am not afraid of Donald Trump. He is a bully,” Griffin said. While Griffin expressed remorse for posting an image of herself holding a bloody mask of Trump, she also accused Trump and his family of “bullying” her, and hit out at CNN, which on Wednesday fired her from its New Year’s Eve broadcast. Fallout from her tweet was quick...

    Comedian Kathy Griffin has apologized for a photo of herself holding what appears to be a bloody, decapitated fake head of President Trump, despite sweeping bi-partisan disapproval of the image. The photo, taken by celebrity photographer Tyler Shields, was posted by Griffin and Shields Tuesday to their social media accounts. "I caption this 'there was blood coming out of his eyes, blood coming out of his ... wherever,'" Griffin tweeted, referring to an exchange between Donald Trump and former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly during the primary season. But in an attempt to appease those who were offended by the...

    President Donald Trump is working to make the Secret Service more efficient in protecting himself and future commanders-in-chief, veteran investigative reporter Ronald Kessler told Newsmax TV. "Trump is transforming the Secret Service to make it an agency that properly protects the president and his family and the vice president – an agency that we can be proud of again," Kessler told host Bill Tucker on Wednesday's "America Talks Live." "It began with Trump's DHS Secretary John Kelly firing two Secret Service uniformed officers. "They were responsible for the fact an intruder was able to bum around the White House grounds...

    Two Secret Service agents have reportedly been fired in relation to an incident last month when a California man scaled the fence and roamed the White House grounds for nearly 20 minutes. The two agents who have been fired had been on the job for less than a year and were assigned to guard posts located at the Treasury Building and an entrance on East Executive Avenue when 26-year-old Jonathan Tran scaled multiple fences, set off alarms and wandered around the White House for 17 minutes before anyone stopped him in mid-March. “The Secret Service review of the March 10...
