What in the world is going on with the protection of The President of These United States of America? During President Obama’s administration, we have witnessed colossal security breakdowns by those who are responsible for our president’s safety. And very little is apparently being done about it except praise and expressions of confidence in the leaders within the secret service by officials within the government.
Well…you can form your own opinions and take what I say with a grain of salt if you want to; but I tell you as an ex-secret service agent that the protection surrounding our president MUST be re-evaluated as to responsibility and authority. Congress MUST look into the activities of those charged with the safety of our president and determine whether the secret service agents of Homeland Security are either unwilling or unable to protect our president. I made a similar statement to Chief of the United States Secret Service U.E. Baughman in 1961. I discussed the fact that the then President John F. Kennedy was not receiving the kind of protection that would ward off a successful attempt on his life. For my constant complaining about the lack of adequate protection being given to President Kennedy and my failure to “shut your mouth and tend to your own dam business” I have suffered degradation for the past 49 years of my life.
Even now, I have been told that by continuing to voice my opinion on the subject of the current president’s protection, I may as well forget about receiving any kind of executive action clearing my name of the false conviction perpetrated against me by high officials within the secret service back in 1964.
The fact of the matter is that I don’t give a rat’s a*s about being “forgiven” for a crime that I did not commit. The question is: how in the Sam Hill Hell can our president be so opened to public manipulation as to permit our President of These United States of America to be lifted two feet off of the floor by anyone, anywhere, anytime??? Where were the agents when our president was so unceremoniously embraced???
This is no matter of levity and I ask all who read this message to request their senators and congressman to look into this matter before we hear the muffled drums and the clops of horse’s hooves echoing past a purple bannered White House.
The big squeeze: Barack Obama gets airborne bear hug
PRESIDENT Barack Obama reputedly loves nothing more than a good old campaign trail hug -- but he may have got more than he bargained for on Sunday.

It was fine for Scott Van Duzer, the owner of a pizza shop in Ft. Pierce, Fla., to give President Barack Obama a bear hug on Sunday, a spokesman for the Secret Service said Monday.
Agents, who are trained to make assessments on the behavior of the people who interact with the president, thought Van Duzer’s actions were appropriate and consistent with the event, said the spokesman, who did not want to be identified by name.
During a stop at the pizza shop while on a two-day bus tour of the crucial swing-state, Obama was lifted off the floor by Van Duzer as onlookers gasped. Obama and Van Duzer had been bantering about the size of the restaurateur’s biceps.
He is 6’3” tall and weighs 260 pounds and told reporters he can bench press 350 pounds.
Van Duzer said he was “just overcome with excitement” which led him to lift the president off the ground. Van Duzer told reporters on Sunday the agents said it was fine for him to do so as long he didn’t carry Obama away.
