Another Targeting Scandal

“This scary. 1984 scary.” National Journal columnist Ron Fournier remarked on Thursday. “We’ve got an agency called ‘Secret Service’ targeting political enemies. Think about that.”

Indeed. This week, the fraternity house that is United States Secret Service graduated from ribald antics and hijinks to the outright political intimidation of those who would dare spoil the good time. The specific target of the Secret Service’s botched decapitation strike was House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz. According to the Department of Homeland Security inspector general, the USSS assistant director tried to get some embarrassing information about the congressman into the public sphere in the effort to coerce Chaffetz to back off his investigation of the agency responsible for the personal safety of America’s most prominent political figures.

    I was furious when I heard about this story last night.
    Jail time USSS Assistant Director Edward Lowery, and those 45 agents need to be fired “with cause” and be barred for life from Federal employment.

      • There is an election coming soon.

        We will (hopefully) see a significant change in government.

        May the wheels of justice make these assholes pay.

    And like the IRS targeting, and the NSA spying, nothing will be done, nobody will be held to account.

  • Its standard Obama “administration” style. Democracy, rule of law – these are long gone.

    In most Latin American thug regimes the equivalent group is usually just called the “Treasury Police”. Perhaps Emperor Barry should follow suit to let everyone know who they are really dealing with.

    the former United States of America whom everyone sane person looked up to a a bastion of liberty has fallen into the hands of leftist extremists and terrorists. And you have only the voters and treasonous media to blame.

    I always thought Obama would have his own special police force. I was wrong – he has multiple police forces: the NSA, IRS, FBI, SS, etc. It shows you that there are few in government service with a conscience or a moral code, they’re money whores who will break any law and serve any master for gold.
