Secret Service removes agent
who didn´t want to take
´a bullet´ for Trump

Washington Examiner, by Susan Crabtree

Original Article

Posted By:Lalo, 3/20/2017 1:11:40 AM

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. Kerry O´Grady, the agent in question, is on administrative leave

Talking about double speak. She has been ´permanently removed´ yet somehow not ´fired.´

I have to wonder if this President wouldn´t be safer with a more dedicated and motivated cadre of highly trained professionals to protect him, like maybe SEALs or something similar.

The Secret Service as it stands has a difficult time even keeping intruders off the grounds. Further, if an SS agent won´t take a bullet for the President, how long do you think it might be before one of them decides to do something even more shockingly unthinkable. The thought is sickening but in this crazy world, nothing is outside of the realm of possibility.

Rose to more than her level of incompetence or was she affirmative action in action?

Send her to Antarctica to find and take stool samples until she retires. That should keep her busy.

It´s time for elite military special operations units to protect the President as in this highly charged political climate there is some doubt that the Secret Service even has the legitimate authority anymore to effectively vet and weed out unqualified candidates for employment. In that respect if some Muslims of foreign origin were to apply, chances are a leftist judge would rule that the Secret Service must hire them, and put them on duty carrying firearms at the White House. These are crazy times with the enemy within being so active.

Top special agent? Really? She has to be one of those affirmative hires from the socialist/communist ranks who got personally promoted through the ranks by Barry himself. No wonder the SS can´t seem to do their job.

Send this moron to the Adak Alaska Field Office and have her investigate penny coin counterfeiters. Sad to say that when I was in California I worked with high level government employees like O´Shady Grady. Ignorant hard to fire political hacks who disgrace themselves with their own overblown sense of self-importance. They just can´t do their job and get on with it. They have to grandstand. In a clerical gub´ment job this is bad but in a job like O´Grady´s it´s worse. She should be FIRED and not allowed to retire with benefit´s. She´s truly a dishonorable and pathetic person.

She should not be transferred to Alaska like previous commenters have suggested; she should be fired and stripped of all law enforcement credentials. Then she should be prevented from ever gaining a security-type job again. I´d also closely review her license for carrying a weapon and suggest she have it revoked for showing signs of mental unfitness.

That´s what the left would do and we need to start fighting the war instead of thinking we´ll win by taking some high road that doesn´t exist and only takes us out of the way so the left can put another anti-American in the post just like the one they´ve sort of removed.

Most federal workers are Dems/Lefties and that includes those employed by law enforcement and the intel agencies so don´t think that the USSS is special in that they put their politics aside - not anymore at least.

Obummer so destroyed American values that this kind of garbage will soon become routine. Thus, we see what used to be a proud and patriotic organization like the FBI, and even FISA, Homeland Security, etc. thinking nothing of leaking national security secrets if it pushes the liberal agenda. All integrity is off the table. Give a TRANSCRIPT of a private conversation to the press like it was nothing. Thus, our secret agents have now become flunkies for political purposes and pushing partisan agendas.

To set an new example, she should be FIRED and removed from the public payroll. PERIOD.

How hard is this?

If a McDees employee said "I won´t make french fries", he/she would be fired. If a cabbie said, "I won´t pick up fares", he/she would be fired. She has said she will not do what the job requires, so fire her, already.

This is not rocket science, there are no fine points to worry about - she has said she will not do her most critical job. Gone.

What took so long? The minute that FaceBook entry was found, she should have been called in by her supervisor and if it was a true representation she should have been fired on the spot. PERIOD.

This is why the secret service is in such dire straits. The lapses in security are absolutely unacceptable. The secret service has become a politically correct agency concerned more with affirmative action policies than professionalism and a dedication to its mission. A whole lotta other agents probably are in need of finding other employment.

Drain That Swamp.

I wonder is people like the Kerry O´Grady ever think about the men and women that serve in our armed forces? And that everyone of them know full well that they are subject to enemy fire and as such just might "take one"? The only difference is it´s for one´s country. Oh, and it´s the Commander in Chief (that means the president no matter who it is) that sends them into harms way? Seems to me that a lot of O´Grady´s don´t really take time to think things through.

She was probably showing off for her buddies and had never been outside the Colorado branch.
She probably was never considered for personal protection duty.
During WW2 my grandmother was a special agent for the FBI and no one but grand father knew --not even her children.
years later I found her badge while cleaning a cabinet for her. she told me the story.
Her job was to keep airmen on off duty time safe from being lured into being robbed or murdered in or around bars and clubs --or questioned about the bases and routines while drugged or drunk.
She matched the theme of having been a pistol packing mama.

Reminds me of the recent case where the intruder got all the way to the entry door of the White House and he just pushed aside the petite woman agent "guarding" the door and waltzed right into the White House! Sounds like less than Mall Security. I worked during the "cultural change" that brought little, weak women into law-enforcement and firefighting. A very sad time that greatly weakened our police and fire departments.

All eyes on Trump, Ryan relationship

Not long after President Donald Trump told his Twitter followers to watch Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro´s show Saturday night, the host and Trump ally took to the screen to deliver a harsh rebuke of House Speaker Paul Ryan. "Paul Ryan needs to step down as speaker of the House," Pirro said. "The reason? He failed to deliver the votes on his health care bill. The one trumpeted to repeal and replace Obamacare. The one that he had seven years to work on. The one he hid under lock and key in the basement of Congress. The one that had

Speaker Paul Ryan and House leaders had been toiling behind closed doors for weeks assembling their Obamacare repeal bill as suspicion on the far-right simmered to a boil. So on March 7, just hours after Ryan unveiled a plan that confirmed its worst fears, the House Freedom Caucus rushed to devise a counterstrategy. The few dozen true believers knew that pressure from House leaders and President Donald Trump to fall in line would be immense and they were intent on not getting boxed in. In a conference room in the Rayburn House Office Building, the group met that evening and made a

A day earlier he criticized “20 years” of a “failed approach” to the North’s nuclear ambitions. I, too, appreciate the secretary of state’s candor. But straight talk isn’t going to be enough.

The Washington Post detailed the House GOP’s fight over the ObamaCare repeal and replacement plan this week, rounding up the dramatic details of leadership’s fight to win support for the measure. At one point, the paper said, House Speaker Paul Ryan (Wis.) got down on one knee to plead with Rep. Don Young of Alaska – the longest-serving Republican in Congress -- to support the bill. (He was unsuccessful.) The moments highlighted by the Post during the Republican conference negotiations show what a tough battle Ryan and his deputies faced in whipping the vote. But they also show the fierce support

The idea is to help meet some of the goals President Trump pledged to accomplish during his campaign, such as working to help with veteran care and fight opioid addiction.

Ryan over the failure to pass a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. “No, he doesn’t,” Mr. Priebus insisted on “Fox News Sunday.” The speculation about the president’s dissatisfaction with the speaker mounted after Mr. Trump urged his Twitter followers to watch Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro’s program on Saturday, in which she opened the show with a call for the removal of Mr. Ryan. “I think it was more coincidental,” said Mr. Priebus. “There was no pre-planning here.”

It was a careful choice of words, Bernard Lewis being nothing if not careful.

He did not say that Muslims will be the majority population in what is still recognizably Europe. No, Professor Lewis said “Europe will be Islamic.” We are not talking about Muslims here.

Donald Trump crowed for months he would strike a "terrific" deal on health care. His ambitions ended in a brief phone call Friday afternoon, in which Speaker Paul Ryan told him the truth: He was nowhere close. The businessman president, who sold himself to tens of millions of disillusioned voters last year as the only outsider who could tame a broken capital, ended his first confrontation with lawmakers overmatched, outmaneuvered and ultimately empty-handed. “We learned a lot about some very arcane rules,” Trump said in the Oval Office soon after the defeat of his effort to undo President Obama’s

Former President Barack Obama´s journey to French Polynesia was undertaken so he could write his memoir. Obama arrived at a luxury resort frequented by Hollywood stars in mid-March, though it was unknown at the time what he was doing there. The Washington Post reported Sunday that Obama is writing his White House memoir during his extended stay at the eco-friendly resort in French Polynesia´s atoll of Tetiaroa.

With the words "credibility questioned" prominent on the screen, Scott Pelley once again is doing what network evening-news anchors generally don´t do: abandoning careful neutrality in favor of pointed truth-telling. He is talking Thursday night about President Trump. And here are some of the words he is using: "his boasting and tendency to believe conspiracy theories." It´s nothing new. Pelley, of CBS Evening News, has set himself apart — especially in recent weeks — with a spate of such assessments, night after night.

"Without further ado, Speaker Ryan should replace Chairman Nunes," the Senate minority leader said from the floor.

Koppel added: ´You have attracted people who are determined that ideology is more important than facts.´ Hannity said that Koppel´s rebuke

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday he’ll begin punishing sanctuary cities, withholding potentially billions of dollars in federal money — and even clawing back funds that had been doled out in the past. Speaking at the White House, Mr. Sessions said his department is preparing to dole out more than $4 billion in funds this year, but will try prevent any of it from going to sanctuaries. “Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Mr. Sessions said. He said he’s carrying out a policy laid out by the Obama administration last year,

Mental genius Chelsea Clinton made a complete a** of herself once again this past weekend. Someone really needs to keep her away from the computers without supervision. Via Newsbusters— The Republican Party of Palm Beach County put President Lincoln in a #MAGA hat this year for its Lincoln Day Dinner. (Snip) An alarmed Chelsea Clinton, a graduate of Oxford University, asked her followers if the image was photoshopped! What a dunce. The responses to Chelsea’s tweets were EPIC! “No, this is the exact hat Lincoln was wearing when he signed the Emancipation Proclamation. People forget that.” “Nope, Lincoln was wearing that exact hat at the Theater.” “Nope,

The Washington Post detailed the House GOP’s fight over the ObamaCare repeal and replacement plan this week, rounding up the dramatic details of leadership’s fight to win support for the measure. At one point, the paper said, House Speaker Paul Ryan (Wis.) got down on one knee to plead with Rep. Don Young of Alaska – the longest-serving Republican in Congress -- to support the bill. (He was unsuccessful.) The moments highlighted by the Post during the Republican conference negotiations show what a tough battle Ryan and his deputies faced in whipping the vote. But they also show the fierce support

New market data has somehow managed to make Whole Foods’ beleaguered lot look even worse. On top of reports last week that rival Albertsons was sniffing around Sprouts Farmers Market, an upstart organic grocer and wellness store whose prices are about 19 percent cheaper on average than Whole Foods, there are now some new numbers suggesting the high-end grocery chain is also still hemorrhaging shoppers. Foot traffic has dipped once again, Barclays analysts note, straight-up describing the magnitude this time as “staggering.” Technically, it’s 3 percent, which can make “staggering” seem a little far-fetched — until you consider it translates

As they investigate the forces behind the party’s stunning losses in November, Democrats are coming to a troubling conclusion. The party didn’t just lose among rural white voters on Election Day, it may have failed to capture them in its pre-election polling as well. Many pollsters and strategists believe that rural white voters, particularly those without college degrees, eluded the party’s polling altogether — and their absence from poll results may have been both a cause and a symptom of Donald Trump’s upset victory over Hillary Clinton in several states. Determining what exactly happened is one of the most pressing problems facing
