    The Secret Service is bracing for the impending appointment of a new director with a senior military rank, the first time an agency chief would come from outside the service in modern history. Agents and officers are expecting Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, a retired Marine general and former head of U.S. Central Command, to tap another general to head the Secret Service and help reform the agency and impose more rigorous and even-handed discipline, according to two knowledgeable sources.

    The worst enemies of President Trump may be his own Secret Service who have sworn to protect him. The so-called “Shadow Government” is testing the waters. Are they practicing for a real “Coup” to take President Trump out of the White House? We can only speculate at this point. But one thing is sure – something nefarious and potentially destructive is happening. This week has been an extremely embarrassing one for our nation’s Secret Service, and a scary week for the President. A total of three significant breaches of security have occurred in the past five days involving the Secret...

    It was reported earlier this week that a Secret Service Agent’s laptop was reported stolen from a vehicle. The laptop contained floor plans to Trump Tower, evacuation protocols and information regarding the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

Some items stolen along with the laptop — including coins and a black bag with the Secret Service insignia on it — were later recovered. But the laptop, along with other documents described as “sensitive,” were still being sought. The thief stepped out of...

    The White House fence jumper who lingered on the ground unnoticed for 17 minutes was literally just hanging out in plain view with alarms blaring, and the Secret Service had no clue. Congressman Jason Chaffetz tells TMZ he met with the Director of Homeland Security and the Acting Director of the Secret Service for an hour and a half Tuesday, and his conclusion ... "It was even worse than I thought." Chaffetz says the surveillance video is shocking ... the intruder was not darting around. Rather, he was "lingering," "hanging out" on the grounds. At one point he took the...

    Epoch Times ^ | March 21, 2017 | Jack Phillips
    There were a series of breaches and scandals involving the Secret Service under the Obama administration. For example, during President Obama’s first year in office, Washington couple Tareq and Michaele Salahi crashed his first state dinner after getting past security. Later, in November 2011, a man with a semiautomatic rifle parked near the White House and opened fire at the building. No one was injured, but former first family member Sasha Obama was inside at the time. The Washington Post in 2014 reported that the Secret Service apparently didn’t know it happened until later. Between 2012 and 2014, there were...

    The fence-jumper who wandered around the White House complex for 17 minutes was able to elude the Secret Service in part because the agency has taken down alarm sensors along an area of one fence that he scaled, according to two sources familiar with details of the incident. The intruder, identified as Jonathan Tran, was able to jump over three different fences, including at least one between the Treasury Department and the east area of the White House complex shortly before midnight March 10.

    We're sure this will be fine Hey, give them this: It’s better than getting drunk and cavorting with Colombian prostitutes. And there’s always the possibility that those were the agents assigned to the Hillary detail and the horror simply drove them to it. But you’d think - and maybe you’d be wrong - these sharpshooters with the dark glasses and the earpieces would be invulnerable to a schlocky type crime like getting your own laptop stolen out of your own car. They protect the life of the president, after all. Surely they wouldn’t let something as stupid as this happen...

    The Secret Service will permanently remove a top special agent from her position after an investigation into her Facebook comments that she would rather not defend President Trump or take "a bullet" from him, but some agents are concerned she will simply be transferred to another government job. About two weeks ago, the Secret Service placed the agent's prior post — the special agent in charge of the Denver District, the top job in that office — on a list of agency openings, according to two Secret Service sources.

    Hey, Angie, how ’bout paying your bills?: President Trump met with Angela Merkel on Friday, in what observers described as a “tense” meeting. Gosh, wonder why? Reportedly, the President pressed the German Chancellor about the need for her wealthy country to actually pay its dues to NATO, which it has been under-paying for basically as long as that organization has existed. Shockingly, the Chancellor announced during their joint presser afterwards that she is now suddenly committed to doing that. Turns out, somebody just had to ask. Or more likely, demand, which would explain the “tenseness”.

    In the 12 days since Donald Trump took the oath of office, a steady stream of social media posts have called for the new president's assassination. The posts are pretty basic and many are jokes or sarcastic or hyperbolic — but there are a lot of them. In a Dataminr search of Twitter posts since Inauguration Day containing the phrase "assassinate Trump" more than 12,000 tweets came up. The U.S. Secret Service, however, or even Twitter and Facebook themselves, doesn't seem to be jumping onto many of these posts. When we asked several users about their recent "assassinate Trump" posts,...

    Madonna took to Instagram to say she was using a 'metaphor' when she said during the Women's March on Washington that she thought about 'blowing up the White House'.  On Sunday she shared a photo with her 8.6million followers of her wearing in the same furry black coat she wore to the march, overlain with white lettering that stated: 'I choose love! Are you with me?' She captioned the snap: 'Yesterday's Rally. was an amazing and beautiful experience. I came and performed Express Yourself and thats exactly what i did. 'However I want to clarify some very important things. I...

    LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Like many celebrities, Madonna spoke candidly without fear of repercussions. She began by asking the crowd, "Are you ready to shake up the world?" Her question was met with thousands of voices crying in unison, "Yes!" "Welcome to the revolution of love," she continued, "to the rebellion, to our refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny where not just women are in danger, but all marginalized people - where being uniquely different, right now, may truly be considered a crime. "It took this horrific moment of darkness for us to wake...

    The Secret Service has reportedly said it will open an investigation into Madonna after the singer told the Women's March on Washington that she had thought about 'blowing up the White House'.

She went on to speak of her rage at the election result, telling the crowd she had thought a lot about 'blowing up the White House' but knew that it 'wouldn't change anything'. According to the Gateway Pundit, a spokesman for the...

    US Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy wants to set the record straight about President-elect Donald Trump’s private security team and whether it’s causing conflict with his agents. In an exclusive interview with CNN — his first since Trump’s election — Clancy also offered a wide-ranging look at the unique logistical challenges of providing security for the President-elect’s large family and securing his New York residence. Most of all, however, he wanted to push back against suggestions that there were conflicts between the Secret Service and the private security team that’s protected Trump for years. Politico reported last month that Trump’s...

    Charlie, the Secret Service is here and they want to talk to you. Before we lament that Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn has fallen this far, we should probably consider that he hasn't actually fallen at all. He was always down this low. We just didn't always realize it, and presumably neither did Denise Richards at first. Charlie is too charming a guy for most people to catch on right away. But you are who you are, and you can only hide it for so long - especially when you crave attention but really have no idea how to handle it...
