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.

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.

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus went to the White House today for their first official meeting with President Donald Trump. The meeting, which comes five weeks after Trump asked a reporter at a press conference to help set up a discussion with the group, was organized primarily to discuss Trump’s new budget proposal, which Chairman Cedric Richmond, D-Louisiana, said at a press conference this afternoon would be “devastating” for the African-American community.

When it comes to repealing and replacing Obamacare, defenders of President Barack Obama´s signature domestic law constantly ask, "What about those with pre-existing illnesses?" After all, the most popular feature of Obamacare is that it prohibits insurance companies from denying coverage because an applicant has a pre-existing illness. And President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan insist that those with pre-existing conditions will be covered. But by agreeing with Obama on the issue of pre-existing illnesses, by promising to replace Obamacare "with something better," Republicans are making a massive concession: That access to health care insurance should be guaranteed by

This is about as surprising as learning the sun will come up in the East tomorrow.

Mr. Paul said that would give Republicans a chance to head off the parliamentarian and reinterpret the budget process rules that have tied GOP leaders’ hands in what kind of bill they’re able to bring to the floor while avoiding a Democratic filibuster. “That alone I think would break the logjam and get things going,” Mr. Paul, Kentucky Republican, told reporters.

A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a

As Republicans hail Judge Neil Gorsuch as an "outstanding" Supreme Court nominee, Democrats are lining up against him for partisan reasons. "My view is very simple," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday. "And that is, there is a cloud now hanging over the head of the president, and while that´s happening, to have a lifetime appointment made by this president seems unseemly, and there ought to be delay." (Video) (Earlier Tuesday, in remarks on the Senate floor, Schumer said it would be "unseemly" to move forward so fast with confirming Gorsuch while the "gray

Washington -- Communications of Donald Trump´s transition officials - possibly including the incoming president himself - may have been scooped up in legal surveillance but then improperly distributed throughout the intelligence community, the chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday. In an extraordinary set of statements to reporters, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes said the intercepted communications do not appear to be related to the ongoing FBI investigation into Trump associates´ contacts with Russia or any criminal warrants. Nunes, who served on Trump´s transition team, said he believes the intelligence collections were done legally but that identities of Trump officials and the

President Trump is facing the first crucial test of his presidency — repealing and replacing Obamacare — and he needs to apply the negotiating chops and deal-making skills he bragged about in his bestselling book, “The Art of the Deal,” to fixing our broken health-care system. And given his low approval ratings, he needs a win. Dealing with the Obamacare mess has been the core focus of the Republican party for the past 7 years — not to mention a major campaign promise that helped propel Donald Trump to the White House. So it’s imperative that the president seal the deal and

Democrats plan to filibuster Neil Gorsuch’s nomination for the Supreme Court, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) said Thursday. Speaking on the Senate floor Thursday morning, Schumer said Gorsuch -- who is three days into his confirmation hearings with the Senate Judiciary Committee -- will need 60 votes to be confirmed. Currently, the Senate has 52 Republicans and 48 Democrats. “After careful deliberation, I have concluded that I cannot support judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court,” he said. “His nomination will have a cloture vote. He will have to earn 60 votes for confirmation. My vote will

Alphonse Maddin worked as a truck driver for TransAm Trucking. Like a lot of Americans, he did the kind of hard work that puts food on the table, and pays the bills and the taxes. The work that people like Maddin do every day may not receive lots of media attention, but our economy will not function without it. Such workers do not ask for a lot in return, just to be treated fairly and with dignity under our laws. Unfortunately, even that modest expectation has too often gone unfulfilled in recent years. The Supreme Court has increasingly come down

WASHINGTON -- Former President Obama surfaced this morning to defend the Affordable Care Act as House Republicans tried to wrangle last-minute votes for today´s promised vote on the American Health Care Act. "Ultimately, after a century of talk, decades of trying, and a year of bipartisan debate, our generation was the one that succeeded" in passing healthcare reform, Obama declared in a statement issued by his office. "We finally declared that in America, healthcare is not a privilege for a few, but a right for everybody." "Since the law passed, the pace of healthcare inflation has slowed dramatically," he added.
