GOP Rep: ‘Politically Correct’ Secret Service Has Allowed 1,000 Security Lapses

 

 

” An internal Secret Service report revealed more than “1,000 security breaches and vulnerabilities,” according to a House investigator who said that a “politically correct” culture is endangering President Obama.

“ There are new details that will come out that — you really have to question if security is their number one objective,” Representative Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah), who sits on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that is holding a Tuesday hearing on the Secret Service, tells National Review Online. “They want to be politically correct.” “

 

 

It would be more than ironic is something were to happen to Obama due to the left’s penchant for political correctness …

Screen Shot 2014-09-26 at 3.57.35 PM

 

” Ashley Gabrielle Huff is considering suing police and prosecutors after she spent a month in jail for possession of SpaghettiOs.

  Police arrested Huff after they pulled her over and found a spoon covered with a “suspicious residue.” She claimed that she was not guilty of using, selling, or making methamphetamines.

  Huff spent more than a month in jail while her attorney was attempting to make a plea bargain. They changed their tune after the crime lab report showed that the spoon was covered in SpaghettiOs sauce. Huff was released immediately after the discovery.”

Woman Undergoes Surgery To Add Third Breast

 

 

 

 

 

” A US massage therapist has gone to extreme lengths to become a reality TV star, undergoing surgery to add a third breast to her chest.

  The Florida woman, who goes by the name Jasmine Tridevil, said she spent $20,000 on the procedure a few months ago after finally finding a doctor willing to perform the operation.

“ I called 50 doctors,” Tridevil told Real Radio 104.1.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” “It was really hard finding someone that would do it too because they’re breaking the code of ethics.”

  Tridevil’s third breast was constructed in the middle of her chest with a silicone implant and skin tissue cut from her abdomen.

The surgeon was not able to make an artificial areola, so Tridevil had one tattooed on. “

Afghan Soldiers Missing From Joint Base Cape Cod

 

 

 

 

 

” Police and military officials are searching for three officers from the Afghanistan National Army who were engaged in a training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod.

  Massachusetts National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. James Sahady said the three men were reported missing on Saturday night after travelling into Hyannis that day.

“ They didn’t report back (to the base),” Sahady said. “There is no indication they pose a threat to the public.”

  Police and base officials are cooperating in the search for the three men, identified as Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar. Sahady didn’t have any descriptions or ages for the three officers.

A state police spokesman said they are not involved in the investigation.”

Feds Censure Local Police, Yet Give Lethal Weapons

 

 

 

 

 

” A Pentagon program that distributes military surplus gear to local law enforcement allows even departments that the Justice Department has censured for civil rights violations to apply for and get lethal weaponry.

  That lack of communication between two Cabinet agencies adds to questions about a program under review in the aftermath of the militarized police response to protesters in Ferguson, Missouri.

  The Pentagon, which provides the free surplus military equipment, says its consultation with the Justice Department will be looked at as the government reviews how to prevent high-powered weaponry from flowing to the untrustworthy.

  The Justice Department has opened civil rights investigations into the practices of some 20 police departments in the past five years, with the Ferguson force the latest. The investigations sometimes end in negotiated settlements known as consent decrees that mandate reforms. Yet being flagged as problematic by Washington does not bar a police department from participating in the program.”

” One arm of the federal government is restricting the departments based on a history of constitutional violations, and the other arm is feeding them heavy weapons. That’s absurd,” he said.”

Secret Service Launches Probe Into White House Security Breach

 

White House Intruder Armed

 

 

” The intruder who sprinted across the White House lawn and was able to enter the North Portico doors had a knife, officials said Saturday as the Secret Service pledged a review of Friday night’s security breach and increased patrols.

  Omar J. Gonzalez, 42, an Iraq war veteran, was arrested after he hopped over a fence at 7:20 p.m. and sprinted across the lawn before entering the North Portico doors. Officials initially said Gonzalez was unarmed, but a law enforcement official told NBC News Saturday that Gonzales had a four-inch folding knife on him when he was arrested. Army records show Gonzalez is an Iraq war veteran who served as a cavalry scout, and he served in Iraq from 2006 to 2008.

  The Secret Service on Saturday was reviewing how Gonzalez was able to make it as far as he did, and said in a statement that “the location of Gonzalez’s arrest is not acceptable.” Secret Service Director Julia Pierson increased security patrols and surveillance of the White House fence and ordered an investigation into what went wrong.

  On Saturday another man, a 19-year-old from New Jersey, was arrested after he tried to drive past a barricaded entrance to the complex and refused to stop, Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary said. The man, identified by a law enforcement official as Kevin Carr of Shamong, N.J., didn’t hit the barricades or cause any damage, but was arrested on a charge of unlawful entry. Streets surrounding the entrance at were briefly closed.”

Descent Into Barberism

 

 

 

 

 

” I often joke with my hairdresser Amanda about the number of state permits she requires for the privilege of cutting my hair. As I point out on page 49 of After America (personally autographed copies of which are exclusively available, etc):

  In the Fifties, one in twenty members of the workforce needed government permission in order to do his job. Today, it’s one in three.

  That’s tyrannous – which is bad enough, albeit not unique to America: The entire developed world has massively expanded the hyper-regulatory state. But only in America does the Department of Paperwork command lethal force:

  On August 19, 2010, two inspectors from the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) visited the Strictly Skillz Barbershop in Orlando and found everything in order: All of the barbers working there were properly licensed, and all of the work stations complied with state regulations. Two days later, even though no violations had been discovered and even though the DBPR is authorized to conduct such inspections only once every two years, the inspectors called again, this time accompanied by “between eight and ten officers, including narcotics agents,” who “rushed into” the barbershop “like [a] SWAT team.” Some of them wore masks and bulletproof vests and had their guns drawn. Meanwhile, police cars blocked off the parking lot.

  The officers ordered all the customers to leave, announcing that the shop was “closed down indefinitely.” They handcuffed the owner, Brian Berry, and two barbers who rented chairs from him, then proceeded to search the work stations and a storage room. They demanded the barbers’ driver’s licenses and checked for outstanding warrants. One of the inspectors, Amanda Fields, asked for the same paperwork she had seen two days earlier, going through the motions of verifying (again) that the barbers were not cutting hair without a license (a second-degree misdemeanor). Finding no regulatory violations or contraband, the officers released Berry and the others after about an hour. “

The parents of two Austrian teenage girls who fled their homes to join the Islamic State have been informed that one of their daughters is likely dead.

Authorities have not confirmed whether Samra Kesinovic or Sabina Selimovic have died, though they have received information that indicates one of the girls was likely killed in battle.

After reports circulated on Austrian television late Sunday, a spokesperson for the Interior Ministry confirmed the reports to the local Salzburger News. 

“We also have this information and have checked it, but cannot say with absolute certainty that it is true. But the parents have been informed their daughter could be dead,” the official said.

Video: U.S. College Students Sign Petition In Support Of ISIS

 

 

 

 

 

” Despite one’s feelings on how the U.S. government should deal with the growing threat that ISIS poses to the world, it’s safe to assume that Americans across the political spectrum agree that the terror group is pretty odious.

Unless, of course, those people have never heard of ISIS.

  I can only assume that the college students who were willing to sign my petition calling on President Obama to support the terror group, were ignorant to the group’s existence. 

God, I hope so!

  Over the period of about an hour, I stood on the campus of George Mason University in Northern Virginia and asked passing students to sign my petition.  The petition was adorned with the ISIS flag above the unambiguous headline, “SUPPORT ISIS.” “

Middle School Assignment Asks Students To Compare Hitler With George W. Bush

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A Washington, D.C., middle school assignment asking students to compare former president George W. Bush with Adolf Hitler has upset some parents and community members.

  The assignment at McKinley Middle School asked sixth graders to compare the two figures in a Venn diagram, according to USA Today. Instructions say students “have read about two men of power who abused their power in various ways,” and asks them to refer to the articles “Fighting Hitler -– A Holocaust Story,” and “Bush: Iraq War Justified Despite No WMD.”

  Some parents said the assignment was disrespectful to the former president, according to a local NBC affiliate. A former speechwriter for Bush said the teacher who gave the assignment should be fired.

“ A person who can’t tell the difference between George W. Bush and Adolf Hitler shouldn’t be teaching children,” Marc Thiessen told Fox News. “This isn’t even political bias, this is utter incompetence.”

  A statement from D.C. Public Schools said the teacher “admits to extremely poor judgment and short sightedness and will apologize to students. The school will also send a letter home to families explaining the incident and offering to address any additional questions should they arise.” “

NASCAR Fan Brings Out Caution At Richmond By Climbing Fence

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A fan once stole the pace car at Talladega Superspeedway. The sprinklers once came on unexpectedly during a green flag run at Richmond International Raceway. A hole developed mid-race in Turn 1 during the Daytona 500. Juan Pablo Montoya hit a jet dryer under caution setting off a massive fire, also during the Daytona 500. 

  Last weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway, a cat or squirrel (the jury is still out) ran across the track in front of race leader Kevin Harvick.

  Well, Saturday night at Richmond, another incident was added to the list of NASCAR oddities. 

  With 69 laps to go in the Federated Auto Parts 400, NASCAR was forced to throw the caution flag for “security” reasons. 

  That reason? A fan had climbed the catchfence separating the Turn 4 grandstands from the 43-car field racing below. The shirtless fan was brought down by local authorities while the race was slowed under the yellow flag. “

Missing Libyan Jetliners Raise Fears Of Suicide Airliner Attacks On 9/11

 

 

 

 

” Islamist militias in Libya took control of nearly a dozen commercial jetliners last month, and western intelligence agencies recently issued a warning that the jets could be used in terrorist attacks across North Africa.

  Intelligence reports of the stolen jetliners were distributed within the U.S. government over the past two weeks and included a warning that one or more of the aircraft could be used in an attack later this month on the date marking the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against New York and Washington, said U.S. officials familiar with the reports.

“ There are a number of commercial airliners in Libya that are missing,” said one official. “We found out on September 11 what can happen with hijacked planes.” “

 

 

 

Great timing . Thanks Barack , your Libyan spring is paying off in spades … 

 

 

 

” The state-owned Libyan Airlines fleet until this summer included 14 passenger and cargo jetliners, including seven Airbus 320s, one Airbus 330, two French ATR-42 turboprop aircraft, and four Bombardier CJR-900s. Libyan state-owned Afriqiyah Airways fleet is made up of 13 aircraft, including three Airbus 319s, seven Airbus 320s, two Airbus 330s, and one Airbus 340.

  The aircraft were reportedly taken in late August following the takeover of Tripoli International Airport, located about 20 miles south of the capital, by Libyan Dawn.

  Al Jazeera television reported in late August that western intelligence reports had warned of terror threats to the region from 11 stolen commercial jets. “

Illegal Aliens Storm The Beach In San Diego, Second Attempt Thwarted

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Illegal aliens successfully landed on a San Diego beach in a panga boat on Monday and ran to shore – but, when another group tried the same thing on Tuesday, U.S. Customs and Border (CBP) agents were waiting for them.

  Around 7am Monday morning, a horde of illegal aliens stormed a San Diego beach after coming ashore in a panga boat. They sprinted across the beach and climbed over a wall, entering the city.

  Seven of the illegal aliens were spotted by helicopter and later apprehended several blocks from the beach; the CBP is still looking for at least ten more who remain at-large, NBC7 in San Diego reports.

  Then, about 1am Tuesday morning, a second panga boat filled with 20 illegal aliens was intercepted about off the coast of San Diego County by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents.”

Cops TV Crew Member And Suspect Killed By Omaha Police During Gunfight

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Police officers who opened fire while disrupting a robbery at a fast-food restaurant killed a crew member with the long running TV show Cops as well as the suspect, who was armed with a pellet gun that they thought was a real handgun, authorities in Omaha have said.

  The suspect fired from the pellet gun before officers returned fire, Omaha police Chief Todd Schmaderer said at a news conference. He said witnesses and officers thought the robbery suspect’s Airsoft handgun looked and sounded real. They discovered later that it fired plastic pellets.

  Cops is a Fox reality TV show that depicts law enforcement officers in action. According to its website the show has been filmed in at least 140 US cities and three foreign countries.

  The suspect, whom police identified as identified as 32-year-old Cortez Washington, was struck by the officers’ gunfire but fled outside of the restaurant before collapsing. Officers continued firing on the suspect as he exited the restaurant and that was when the Cops crew member, 38-year-old Bryce Dion, was struck, said Schamaderer.”

Will There Be A GOP Wave In The Senate—Or A Wipeout?

 

 

 

” So where’s the wave? This is President Obama’s sixth-year-itch election. The map of states with contested Senate seats could hardly be better from the Republicans’ vantage point. And the breaks this year—strong candidates, avoidance of damaging gaffes, issues such as Obamacare and immigration that stir the party base—have mainly gone the GOP’s way, very unlike 2012.

  Nonetheless, the midterms are far from over. In every single one of the Crystal Ball’s toss-up states, (Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana and North Carolina), the Republican Senate candidate has not yet opened up a real polling lead in any of them. Democratic nominees have been running hard and staying slightly ahead, or close to, their Republican foes.

  Earlier this year, we published a “wave chart” giving the range of Senate election outcomes, from ripple to tsunami. Sometimes tidal waves, such as the 2006 Democratic swell that gave the party control of both houses of Congress, develop in late September or October. That’s certainly still a possibility for the GOP in 2014. However, the summer is waning, and as Labor Day approaches our estimate remains a Republican gain of four to eight seats, with the probability greatest for six or seven seats—just enough to put Republicans in charge of Congress’ upper chamber. The lowest GOP advance would fall two seats short of outright control; the largest would produce a 53-47 Republican Senate. “

The Punitive Bureaucracy’s Day Off

 

 

 

 

” I wrote two weeks ago about two New Hampshire teenagers having their bagpipes seized at the northern border by US Customs & Border Protection. This would be the same “border” “protection” agency that has turned the southern border into an express welfare check-in for any of the world’s seven billion people minded to show up there.

  My fellow Granite Staters – 17-year-old Campbell Webster and Eryk Bean, of Concord and Londonderry, New Hampshire – understood that if you go to a highland fling a couple of hours north in Quebec you’re now obligated to get your bagpipes approved by US Fish & Wildlife.

  Because that’s just the way it is in the Land of the Free.

  So Messrs Webster and Bean got their CITES certificate and presented it to the US CBP agent at the Vermont border crossing.

  Whereupon he promptly confiscated their bagpipes on the grounds that, yes, their US Fish & Wildlife CITES paperwork was valid, but it’s only valid at 28 ports of entry and this wasn’t one of them.

  Nor is any other US/Canadian land crossing. So, if you’re a piper in, say, Pittsburg, New Hampshire and you want to play in a competition in La Patrie, Quebec 20 minutes north, you have to drive four-to-five hours south to Logan Airport in Boston, fly to Montreal and drive two hours east to La Patrie.

  Because that’s just the way it is in the Land of the Free.

  When the CBP agent seized Messrs Webster and Bean’s bagpipes, he told them – with the characteristic insouciance of the thug bureaucracy – that they were “never going to see them again”. But thanks to the unwelcome publicity the Homeland Security mafiosi were forced to cough ‘em up.

  The two pipers are now heading to a competition in Scotland. So they’ll be flying back via Boston, which is one of those 28 valid ports of entry. They’ve called Fish & Wildlife to arrange for the mandatory “inspection” of the bagpipes upon landing at Logan Airport.

  Unfortunately, the official Fish & Wildlife bagpipes inspector is taking a day off that day – she’s visiting her Auntie Mabel, having a seaweed wrap at the spa, whatever. So she won’t be available to inspect the pipes. So she’s told them they’ll have to drive back to New Hampshire and then drive back to Logan the following day for the Fish & Wildlife bagpipes inspection. So she’s taking a day off on Wednesday, and the bagpipers will have to take a day off on Thursday – just to comply with the diktats of the Department of Paperwork.

  Because that’s just the way it is in the Land of the Free. “

Harry Reid Just Told Asian Americans They’re Not ‘Smarter Than Anybody Else.’ He Does Stuff Like This A Lot

 

 

 

 

 

” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says things from time to time that are at best impolitic and at worst pretty offensive.The term for both of these things in today’s political vernacular is “gaffe.”

  Such is the case again with the above remarks from Reid, made in front of the Asian Chamber of Commerce and helpfully clipped Friday by the GOP opposition research group America Rising.

” The Asian population is so productive,” Reid told the group. “I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are.”

  He added after his remarks that he has problems “keeping my Wongs straight.” (Rimshot.) The remarks are already being given the g-word treatment. And, yes, they are certainly questionable.

Update 12:45 p.m.: Reid has now apologized, saying in a statement: “My comments were in extremely poor taste and I apologize. Sometimes I say the wrong thing.”

  But Reid has also made a career out of saying such odd things — so much so that few tend to notice stuff like this. He’s like Joe Biden; he’s almost built up a gaffe immunity by committing so many small-ish gaffes.

  It’s hard to argue Reid (and Biden, for that matter) doesn’t pay a price — given his unpopularity back home and nationally — but he has yet to ruin his career. Here’s a sampling of some of Reid’s greatest gaffes:

1) “Negro dialect”

2) Mitt Romney hasn’t paid taxes in 10 years

3) The hottest senator

4) Those smelly tourists

 

Washington Post has more on Reid’s bid to out-gaffe “Crazy Joe” , and you can find further details on Reid and his history of stupid comments below …

” Everything from streets to a parasitic hairworm have been named in honor of President Obama, but the effort to immortalize him is causing a backlash in one New Jersey town, whose elected leaders are reconsidering their vote to place the president’s name on a recreation center.

  The Willingboro council has scheduled a second vote on renaming a township building the Barack Obama Center amid complaints that its initial move was premature and unjustified.

  Mayor Eddie Campbell Jr. said the council’s first vote this month was rushed and that most residents in the overwhelmingly Democratic town oppose changing the building’s name from the current “John F. Kennedy Center.” “
