The Secret Service keeps racking up the bad decisions. In the latest round of embarrassing behaviors from the government security detail, two agents are being accused of drunk driving through a bomb investigation (yes, that happened), and crashing into a White House barricade, earlier this month.
Julia Pierson has decided to move on from her post leading the Secret Service. Pierson resigned Wednesday (Oct. 1) in wake of the agency’s recent security breach, involving a man who snuck into the White House and got dangerously close to President Obama.
The United States Secret Service isn’t looking like the elite law enforcement team that’s supposed to protect President Barack Obama and the First Family. Along with the recent White House fence jumper incident, agents allowed an armed ex-con to ride an elevator with Mr. Obama just days prior.
Omar Gonzalez, the 42-year-old Iraqi War veteran infamously known as the White House fence jumper, apparently got further into the building than previously thought two weeks ago. In fact, Gonzalez was able to push past one Secret Service guard and ran throughout much of the White House main floor.
The White House is thought to be one of the most secure places in the world, but last Friday that theory was put to the test with embarrassing results. A man was able to hop a fence and made it to the front doors of the building before Secret Service guards took him down.
The mental well-being of national security was put in jeopardy after a trio of Secret Service agents misconstrued President Obama’s diplomatic trip to the Netherlands for a Fat Tuesday booze cruise.

A nursing student from Denver was arrested after telling his therapist that he wanted to kill President Obama, and children at random. Mitchell Kenneth Kusick, a student at Colorado Mesa University, was being held in custody Tuesday (Nov. 13), under suspicion of making threats against the commander in chief.
No one in safe when launching racist attacks at President Obama. Many have fallen into the “freedom of speech” area where they feel within their rights to go at the commander in chief, but when you’re representing a company the ramifications of said actions can result in unemployment—a lesson which Denise Helms learned the hard […]
A man in California is re-thinking his decision to put up a doll made in the likeness of President Obama, with a noose around its neck. Eddie Million of Moreno Valley now realizes that it was a bad idea to hang a Obama doll from a tree in his yard, but only after he received […]
