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.

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.

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.

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.

President Donald Trump, who has been widely criticized for only speaking with right-wing news outlets, called the Washington Post and the New York Times first on Friday to talk about the House Republicans health care bill. House Republicans pulled the Obamacare repeal bill on Friday after Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) told Trump they did not have enough votes to pass the bill.

President Trump and his advisers ought to study the collapse of the American Health Care Act. It´s a case study in how Beltway institutions—the so-called Swamp Trump pledged to drain—can herd a president and his party toward unpopular legislation and political defeat. Begin with this question: Why the rush to repeal and replace Obamacare? Yes, repealing the law has been a Republican priority since 2010. But Democrats had spent decades laying the groundwork for universal health care before finding themselves in control of the government in 2009. And even then, it took a year for the Affordable Care Act to

I fear the conservatives may have erred. Let´s accept that Paul Ryan´s healthcare bill wasn´t optimal. If the Congressional Budget Office was anywhere close to correct in its original estimations, the bill would have cut government spending by $12.5 trillion, cut taxes by $900 million, repealed Obamacare´s tax increases, and instituted the largest entitlement reform in the last thirty years. But yes, it´s true, it wasn´t full repeal. Indeed, as long as insurance companies are required to cover pre-existing conditions, government healthcare is with us, and the bill would not have changed that. And it is certainly fair to doubt whether

During a televised press conference, Paul Ryan just unraveled his cognitive dissidence. Against all evidence, the speaker had been hoping that President Trump could somehow cut a deal with the Freedom Caucus without making major concessions. He should´ve known better. "This is a disappointing day for us," Ryan told reporters shortly after pulling his American Healthcare Act. But for anyone paying close attention it wasn´t a surprising development. For months, Trump´s business acumen has been grossly exaggerated, and the stubbornness of the "hell-no caucus" underestimated. The subsequent failure of the American Healthcare Act reflects both basic arithmetic and recent history.

Several hundred protesters from a group called Forum for Bekasi Muslim Friendship staged a rowdy demonstration in front of the Santa Clara church in Kaliabang, a neighborhood of Bekasi city, after Friday prayers.

House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a Republican rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “We just pulled it,” President Trump told The Washington Post in a telephone interview. The decision came a day after President Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers — and represented multiple failures for the new president and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.). The decision means the Affordable Care Act remains in place, at least for now, and a major GOP campaign promise goes unfulfilled. It also casts

Ryan was caught on an audio file from October—obtained by Breitbart News and published a couple weeks ago—saying he is “not going to defend Donald Trump—not now, not in the future.” While the audio file does not make the comments clear, Ryan’s staff later claimed

In the last three months of the Obama presidency, significant personal information from and about the Trump transition was collected and widely disseminated at intelligence agencies, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. Dozens of intelligence reports provided to Nunes by an unnamed whistleblower were floating around during the sensitive transition period following the election, he said. The information collection itself may have technically been legal, but the failure to properly mask the information “alarmed” the California congressman, who notified the White House of the surveillance and dissemination of information on Wednesday afternoon. Many of the reporters present didn’t seem to

BRUSSELS—Republican Senator John McCain revealed he hasn’t met the President Donald Trump in person since he took office, and he urged Trump to reach out to his opponents—Democratic and otherwise—ala Ronald Reagan if he wants to repeal Obamacare. “Do some outreach. Get to know some of these Democratic leaders,” he said. “You can find common ground.” McCain said he’d met Trump “some years ago” when he was a businessman, but had not met him since. McCain said he did speak “almost daily” to National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, however. “He doesn’t seem to

Donald Trump had heard enough about policy and process. It was Thursday afternoon and members of the House Freedom Caucus were peppering the president with wonkish concerns about the American Health Care Act—the language that would leave Obamacare’s “essential health benefits” in place, the community rating provision that limited what insurers could charge certain patients, and whether the next two steps of Speaker Paul Ryan’s master plan were even feasible—when Trump decided to cut them off."Forget about the little "stuff", Trump said, according to multiple sources in the room. "Let´s focus on the big picture here."The group of roughly 30

Last night on his eponymous Fox News program, Tucker Carlson interviewed David Moyse, an attorney hired to defend 18 year-old Henry Sanchez-Milian, who is in this country illegally, against a charge of rape against a 14 year old girl in a bathroom at a Rockville, MD, high school. Moyse is one of those youngish (in his 30s) lawyers who gets himself on lists of up-and-comers, like this one, and is a name partner in a criminal defense firm.In going on TV to make the case for his client, Counselor Moyse found himself being cross-examined and saying something he soon had

Broken promises are as old as politics itself, and there are many famous examples of them in modern history. President George H.W. Bush´s "read my lips, no new taxes" pledge comes immediately to mind, as does President Bill Clinton reneging on his middle-class tax cut, and President Barack Obama never closing Guantanamo Bay. But in each of those cases, those were promises that were made in a given campaign by a given politician. The promise of Obamacare repeal is much different. Republicans ran on repealing and replacing Obamacare for seven years, over the course of four election cycles. They won the

We live in a time of “fake news” awareness, so you’d think that someone at the Los Angeles Times would know better than to publish a headline like this: “Just like her mother, Chelsea Clinton never gets a break” Let’s leave the aside the reference to Hillary Clinton, who magically was able to turn $1,000 into $100,000 in cattle futures with no regulatory consequence and delete 30,000 evidentiary emails without prosecution. Or a break. Chelsea is being groomed for political power, and all the powers of modern propaganda are being mobilized to convince voters that she has some claim to

(Video)Maryland’s governor said Friday he cannot promise parents of children in Montgomery County schools, where a freshman high school student was allegedly raped by two older teenagers, that their children will be safe. Republican Gov. Larry Hogan’s remarks came as the assault last Thursday by two immigrants, at least one of whom is in the U.S. illegally, has become a flashpoint for parents worried that the county’s “sanctuary” status for illegal immigrants exposes their school children to danger.“I’m not sure I can give assurances that their children will be safe,” he said. What he did give assurances about, however, was that he

Brexit was caused in part by climate change, former US Vice-President Al Gore has said, warning that extreme weather is creating political instability “the world will find extremely difficult to deal with”. Mr Gore, speaking at an event in which he previewed a sequel to his landmark 2006 documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, said the “principal” cause of the Syrian Civil War had been the worst drought in 900 years, which forced 1.5 million people to move from the countryside to the cities. There they met a similar number of Iraqis who had fled the conflict in their homeland, creating powder keg conditions
