Secret Service Officials Reportedly Accused Of Misconduct In 17 Countries

 

 

” Secret Service officials are being accused of recently engaging in sexual misconduct and other indiscretions in a total of 17 countries, according to a report Friday in The Washington Post.

The paper reported that the claims were made by whistleblowers to a Senate committee. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., top Republican on that Homeland Security subcommittee, told the Post that the accounts contradict claims made by Secret Service leaders that the agency does not allow such behavior.

The shocking allegations follow the April 2012 incident where a number of agents were caught drinking and seeing prostitutes while on assignment in Colombia.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obamacare Website’s ‘Mystery Girl’ Is Not A US Citizen

 

Adriana

 

” Since the October 1st launch of the Affordable Care Act website there has been no Frequently Asked Question more frequently asked than “who is that girl?”

Thanks to the intrepid shoe-leather work of the folks at ABC News, we finally have our answer: A married mother of one from Colombia who is not technically an American citizen.

Adriana (last name withheld by ABC), a permanent resident who has lived in the US for the past six years with her husband and (now) 21-month-old son, told the news outlet she never set out to be the face of American healthcare reform — she just wanted some free family photos.”

   It’s amazing that with over 300 million Americans to choose from not one was right to be the face of Obamacare . We guess fraudulent policy is best served up by fraudulent Americans , and yes , before you carp we realize that “Adriana” has legal status , but still …

   And to complain about cyber-bullying ? Cry us a river . She was out for some freebies and found out there is always a price to be paid … kind of like the awakening all the other Kool-aid drinkers are getting as they come to grasp the fact that they are the ones who are paying for other people’s “free” healthcare .

Exclusive: After Westgate, Interpol Chief Ponders ‘Armed Citizenry’

” Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble said today the U.S. and the rest of the democratic world is at a security crossroads in the wake of last month’s deadly al-Shabab attack at a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya – and suggested an answer could be in arming civilians.

In an exclusive interview with ABC News, Noble said there are really only two choices for protecting open societies from attacks like the one on Westgate mall where so-called “soft targets” are hit: either create secure perimeters around the locations or allow civilians to carry their own guns to protect themselves.

“Societies have to think about how they’re going to approach the problem,” Noble said. “One is to say we want an armed citizenry; you can see the reason for that. Another is to say the enclaves are so secure that in order to get into the soft target you’re going to have to pass through extraordinary security.”

Noble’s comments came only moments after the official opening of the 82nd annual gathering of the Interpol’s governing body, the General Assembly. The session is being held in Cartagena, Colombia, and is being used to highlight strides over the last decade in Colombia’s battle against the notorious drug cartels that used to be the real power in the country.”

Great stuff , and here’s the money quote …

“Ask yourself: If that was Denver, Col., if that was Texas, would those guys have been able to spend hours, days, shooting people randomly?” Noble said, referring to states with pro-gun traditions. “What I’m saying is it makes police around the world question their views on gun control. It makes citizens question their views on gun control. You have to ask yourself, ‘Is an armed citizenry more necessary now than it was in the past with an evolving threat of terrorism?’ This is something that has to be discussed.”

“For me it’s a profound question,” he continued. “People are quick to say ‘gun control, people shouldn’t be armed,’ etc., etc. I think they have to ask themselves: ‘Where would you have wanted to be? In a city where there was gun control and no citizens armed if you’re in a Westgate mall, or in a place like Denver or Texas?'”

   If only more “leaders” in positions of great responsibility would suffer such epiphanies society would be much improved .
