Obviously they skipped over the thousands of vile racist tweets he gets every second of the day and threw out nothing but softballs.
So you can randomly jump over the White House gate and not get shot and black kids across the country getting shot with their hands up, buying candy, and playing rap music.
According to reports, a man made it over the White House fence today before he was taken down by a U.S.S.S. dog. Although reports say the Secret Service responded quickly, video from the incident shows the man was not immediately surrounded.
The man managed to kick one dog and repeatedly punch and wrestle another dog before Secret Service agents ultimately subdued him.
Yesterday, Herman Cain began receiving Secret Service Protection. According to an official who has asked not to be identified, this protection was spurred on because Cain was receiving death threats. The nature of the threats was unclear. Spokesman of the Secret Service, Ed Donovan, would not confirm the death threats.
Okay she wanted to do harm to our First Lady and decides to call the Secret Service to tell them of her plans? Definitely crazy and deranged.
(Newser) – A woman has been arrested in Hawaii after telling the Secret Service she planned to “blow away” Michelle Obama, officials revealed. Kristy Lee Roshia, 35, was charged with threatening a family member of the president and assaulting a federal agent after her weekend arrest within two miles of the Kailua house where the Obamas plan to vacation this week.
Roshia called the Boston office of the Secret Service last month and vowed to kill the First Lady and Marines, AP reports. Roshia has a history of leaving rambling messages and sending letters and photos of herself to the Secret Service.
Not even Secret Service can shut down the trannys and pro-fessionals all over DC, don’t you think the focus should be on terrorists and supremacists?

District police have placed signs along 5th and I Streets. They read, “Warning, Prostitution Free Zone.” Those who disobey could be fined 300 dollars, and even jailed. But will the city’s plan work?
DC City Councilman Jim Graham said officers cannot enforce loitering laws, which is the reason for these signs.
“Because this is focused, its limited in time, its aimed at a very specific issue, if you don’t move along, well put you in the car,” he said.
John Thompson lives in the neighborhood, and he said prostitution is a major problem.
He hopes the signs make a difference, but what will visitors think?
“I’m not concerned with what visitors think. I’m concerned about the problem that exists,” Thompson said.
A woman who calls herself Tamira and advertises her services on Craigslist, said otherwise. She said prostitutes who work the streets may ignore the signs.
However, she said, some prostitutes may move elsewhere.
“If I saw a sign that said, ‘Prostitution Free Zone’ I would feel a little uncomfortable that there would be a house next store where police are at,” she said.
Tamira also believes some visitors will come to the inauguration for legitimate business, but prostitute on the side to make extra money.

Threats against a new president historically spike right after an election, but from Maine to Idaho law enforcement officials are seeing more against Barack Obama than ever before. The Secret Service would not comment or provide the number of cases they are investigating. But since the Nov. 4 election, law enforcement officials have seen more potentially threatening writings, Internet postings and other activity directed at Obama than has been seen with any past president-elect, said officials aware of the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity because the issue of a president’s security is so sensitive.
Earlier this week, the Secret Service looked into the case of a sign posted on a tree in Vay, Idaho, with Obama’s name and the offer of a “free public hanging.” In North Carolina, civil rights officials complained of threatening racist graffiti targeting Obama found in a tunnel near the North Carolina State University campus.

The Republican vice presidential candidate attracted criticism for accusing Mr Obama of “palling around with terrorists”, citing his association with the sixties radical William Ayers.
The attacks provoked a near lynch mob atmosphere at her rallies, with supporters yelling “terrorist” and “kill him” until the McCain campaign ordered her to tone down the rhetoric.
But it has now emerged that her demagogic tone may have unintentionally encouraged white supremacists to go even further.
The Secret Service warned the Obama family in mid October that they had seen a dramatic increase in the number of threats against the Democratic candidate, coinciding with Mrs Palin’s attacks. Continue reading

HOWELL, Mich. – The U.S. Secret Service said Wednesday it’s investigating two threatening letters against Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama — one sent to the Livingston County Democratic Party and another to a local business.
Douglas Zloto, resident agent in charge of the federal agency’s Saginaw office, said authorities are trying to determine the nature and extent of the threats.
“The Secret Service takes every threat extremely seriously,” he told The Ann Arbor News. “We will be using every resource to investigate this threat … and to determine how it was made.”
The letter sent to the party office reportedly expresses a wish that Obama “gets a bullet.” The second to the unidentified Howell business owner includes racial slurs — preceded by a warning that the owner should “think hard about who you are trying to elect.” Continue reading
Obama take note. Racially-insensitive emails have emerged that have exposed Secret Service agents making crude remarks about the Rev. Jesse Jackson and his family. Jackson, like Obama was provided with a detail of agents early in his his much heralded run for the Oval Office in the 80’s. The most insensitive emails paint a scenario where Jackson and his wife would be assassinated by a missile shooting their plane out of the sky.
The Secret Service e-mail, CBS 2 obtained from a court filing in Washington, was titled “The Righteous Reverend,” and jokes about the deaths of Jackson and his wife when a missile strikes their plane. The e-mail ends with, it “certainly wouldn’t be a great loss and probably wouldn’t be an accident either.”
The inquiry into these emails was put forth by “black” agents who have been fighting for years to obtain a full record of the agencies communications. As a defense, the Agency alleges that these were a few bad apples out a batch of millions of communications but the persons involved were top brass officials and if the leadership harbored those sentiments then who cares what their subordinates felt. Also uncovered were sexually explicit and pornographic communications between agents.
With friends like this who needs enemies? American surveillance cameras caught a member of the Mexican press delegation swiping Blackberries from White House officials outside of a close-session meeting room down in New Orleans last week. Several members of the president’s posse discovered their ‘Berries were missing upon leaving the session with the Mexican delegation. Secret Service immediately reviewed surveillance footage of the area and saw the Mexican official, Quintero Curiel swiping up to six or seven Blackberries.
His official duty was the point-person for the Mexican media, responsible for logistics and setting the Mexican press up at the conference. The Secret Service approached him at the airport amongst the Mexican delegation where they asked for the gadgets back. After initially denying their allegations, he folded after being presented with footage of the crime. Curiel gave the devices back, evoked “diplomatic immunity” and left New Orleans with the Mexican delegation only to return to Mexico to be terminated from his post, thus stripping him of his “diplomatic immunity” status now making him open to prosecution from US authorities.
“Mr. Quintero will be responsible for explaining his actions to the American authorities conducting an investigation. The Mexican Government deeply regrets this incident,” according to Ricardo Alday, spokesman for the Mexican Embassy.
Editor’s Note: Advice to hustlers, take note. Like an episode straight out of The Wire, even the government doesn’t discuss highly sensitive matters around anyone with listening devices like Blackberries or other mobile devices. And hey, what’s good for the goose should be good for the gander.
The “Maverick” John McCain has more in common with George Bush than just being a Republican. Apparently they both share the “go at it alone” attitude; in George’s case its gotten him stuck in Iraq. In Johnny Boy’s case he has opted to campaign without Secret Service holding him down. In his own words, “I’ve never done it. After we won New Hampshire in 2000, they really tried to get us, but we said no,” McCain said last November while campaigning in Concord, N.H. “It’s an invasion of your ability to have contact with voters.” Okay, so he wants to reach out and touch every Red-Necker he comes across and Americans don’t find this fatalistic? Not to stoke the flames of fear but as a potential “President” (I can y’all cringing as you read this) he has a responsibility to secure his health for as long as possible. As someone who is running on the theme of “securing” America don’t you think he should secure himself first and foremost? Barack and Hillary, because of their high profile status, don’t have the option of opting out of a security service.
