Obama assassination bid fears -
aircraft carriers on standby off

Belfast Telegraph [Ireland], by Staff

It is understood that a contingency plan is in place for the unlikely event that an attempt would be made on the President’s life. The Secret Service also have diplomatic immunity which will allow them to shoot to kill a would-be assassin without fear of prosecution. As part of the “evacuation route” plan, they would be able to spirit the President by chopper to one of the carriers where a jet is on standby to take him back to the United States.

Too bad we have fewer ships now since before WW II. The number of aircraft carriers are trending down and cannot cover all the current responsibilities

If Obama is airlifted to the US carrier, would the Mooch have to give up her $3,300 per night suite and the 30 other rooms reserved for her posse?

FTA: "They have plans in place for all possible incidents...They have moved the aircraft carriers in place as a precautionary measure as part of those plans."

And whatever became of The United States Navy/Marine Corps Blue Angel Air Shows, an American Tradition since May 10, 1946?

There is protection and there is excessive hysteria that creates impossible problems for the host countries.
This president is acting with excessive hysteria that comes from extreme fear of reprisals from his drone assassinations or pure cowardice.
He should thought before he bragged about his

The carrier doesn´t go by itself but is always accompanied by additional vessels. The cost of all of this is astounding. Some of these tax dollars should have been spent on security in Benghazi or launching a rescue. obama may have legal authority but his greed, dishonesty and hubris highlights his total lack of moral authority. A pox on his head.

I didn’t watch Obama’s State of the Union address last night. Unlike prior years where I had live feeds and extensive coverage. Instead, I listened to IN-A-GADDA-DA-SOTU. I did peek at Twitter a couple of times, but not long enough to turn into a pillar of salt. Reading the headlines and tweets today, there aren’t any of them that couldn’t have been written before the speech. Not watching was surprisingly refreshing. A field trip away from the asylum.

LOS ANGELES - In a packed courtroom, attorneys unveiled opposing views Monday on the emotionally divisive issue of whether California public school teachers should be protected from dismissal if they are found to be grossly ineffective in their jobs. The opening volleys in what´s expected be a monthlong trial came from lawyers for nine students seeking to abolish teacher tenure and seniority, and from attorneys for the governor, state education department and teacher unions who say such extreme measures are not needed. "The evidence will show that the impact of an effective teacher is profound and undeniable," attorney Theodore Boutrous Jr. said.

Before you break out your favorite EDM song, just consider this: these glow-in-the-dark pigs were created in the name of science. In an effort to further study human genetic disorders, scientists in Southern China injected pig embryos with fluorescent jellyfish DNA; when these 10 piglets are put under a black light, they emanate an eerie green glow. This successful integration of genetic material into the animal’s natural make-up, made possible through a technique developed by reproductive scientists at the University of Hawai`i, could be instrumental in creating more cost-efficient and effective treatments for disorders like hemophilia. “[For] patients who suffer

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare "horror stories" being circulated are untrue. Reid tried to clarify his remarks late Wednesday by saying he was only referring to the “vast majority” of stories featured in ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group, and not the complaints of everyday Americans. However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

Secretary of State John Kerry today warned Russian President Vladimir Putin to stay clear of the political turmoil in Ukraine, adding that the U.S. doesn´t view the international tussle over the democratic movement in Kiev as a continuation of the Cold War. “We do not believe this should be an East-West, Russia-United States.
