The Lessons Of The Secret Service Scandal

April 26, 2012 by  

Wayne Allyn Root says the Government Services Administration scandal shows why our government is bankrupt: It’s because government employees are spending other people’s money. On the other hand, the Colombian prostitution scandal could serve as a valuable lesson to all government employees because of something more shocking than the sex. The Secret Service agents did two things that government employees usually don’t while on official business: They used their own money and even attempted to get a better deal.

    Obama is “apoplectic” over the GSA spending scandal:
    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/obama_apoplectic_about_gsa_spending_AK1Y3d3SkbS2dCR9lmqPUO

    You bet he is. They’re cutting into his and Michelle’s party money. How dare they.

Now I will argue one point wit ya dough man, our agents represent US as a nation when they’re overseas on mission, if they’re going to solicid hos, they should at least be a PLAYA and pay the coin agreet to befo da dirty deed!!! I feel like dey give us American male tourists a bad rap holmes!!! Of course I’ve NEVER had to pay, they SHOULD have to pay me! LOL!!! Anybody know what’s 14″ long and white?!!… NOT A DAMN THING BRA!!! LOL! LOL! LOL!!!

      • Vicki

        I read the article DaveH linked to with some amusement as axelrod and lieberman tried to excuse obama’s administrative skills. As we all know (well not the liberals but…. :) ) if you are going to lead, why are you upset when your people follow you.

        What I notice the article did NOT say was how the waste is STILL going on in spite of the scandal. http://www.nypost.com/p/news/opinion/opedcolumnists/party_still_going_for_gsa_union_RSIdu0U7Sx1MMPtnN1pPbK?utm_campaign=OutbrainA&utm_source=OutbrainArticlepages&obref=obinsite

        Well said Rod , and what’s 14″ long and black …..? Not a damn thing ! It is a documented scientific and medical fact that less than 1% of the male population of the world is any larger than 6″ in length . And since that is an average it would mean that there is a lot of guys equiped with less . Any one telling you they got more is a liar .
        That said , Barry O is livid , not because the guys were spending money but because they weren’t doing his gay butt . That’s right Barry Obama is gay and its a well known fact at Harvard especially among his pals in the Communist party there . But if Barry ain’t getting any no one gets any I suppose .

        How could it be that a voice like this wouldn’t belong to a household name?! Her career has been almost totally ignored by the MSM because her music reflects her unwavering and UNAPOLOGETIC Christian faith!!!

      • Tom W.

        And finally, and I PROMISE this is it, here she is with famed Spanish tenor Placido Domingo performing “O Holy Night”, words are futile to try and describe the absolute beauty of this child of God’s voice! Placido in his own right, but what an AWESOME gift!!! What a shame that the MSM deemed it unworthy to share!!! Note that she doesn’t even FLINCH in the presence of a star of such magnitude! That’s the definition of COOL! I’ve never heard a voice that was so fresh, clear, and absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!

      The GSA scandal is terrible but really small potatoes compared to the Haliburton scandal that ran into the hundreds of billions of dollars.

      • Brenda

        History is taught so we learn from past events. Haliburton is history. The GSA and many other federal programs is happening now. We need to focus on making the government accountable for how they spend our tax dollars.

      • Rod Majors

        That’s right jopa! Tell ‘em Bra!!! It wus ALL they’s fault! LOL!!!

      • Vicki

        Obviously obama is no where near as smart nor wise as we are told. Evidence his inablity to learn from the Haliburton “scandal”. (I notice that jopa failed to provide any supporting evidence but then liberals rarely do.)

      • marine72

        Well, well; such a deep subject for such a shallow mind. Someone tell me that jopa is not another way of saying BOHICA. jopa you could be a major contributor on Flopping Aces in concert with BOHICAman and BOHICAman1 (aka Liberalman and Liberalman1).

        As a former employee of KBR, after the gummint righted the supposed wrongs of KBR (Halliburton), the new contract for Afghanistan resulted in selection of the highest bidder by over 2 Billion $s. Yes, KBR bid 2 Billion $s under the contract award. I guess KBR didn’t pad enough $s into the contract to satisfy the rapacious hunger of the obozo “bundlers”.

      One definitely has to believ that obama is really smoking that GSA would have the audacity to be spening “his” money. After all, he could be financing more golf, more of Moochelle’s vacationing, separate air travel for Moochelle or Bo, or for just plain spreading around. Letting we taxpayers keep it of course, is not in the equation.

      • jopa

        Brenda you are right Haliburton is history however that is history we will be paying for decades to come.

      Technically yes, because when they are overseas on assignment, no matter where, they are subject to and MUST abide by the laws of the US of A! ALL this could’ve been avoided if the agents in question whould’ve been gentlemen enough to pay the ladies!!! I believe that NV is the only state in the union where prostitution is legal. Am I correct?

        Michelle Obama tape reveals her pet name for Barack: HOWDY!

        Edited on Mon Jun-02-08 03:50 PM by rateyes

        In the tape she is reported to remark:

        “Howdy manage, under great odds, to win the Iowa Caucuses.”

        “Howdy end up winning almost twice as many states as Hillary.”

        “Howdy win more pledged delegates than Senator Clinton.”

        “Howdy go up against the Clinton machine and get the nomination of the Democratic Party.”

        “Howdy do it. He’s smart. He ran a superior campaign. His message of change resonates with the voters.”

        So, it’s old! Still pretty funny!!!

      • Adam

        Nye County sir, Not the whole state of Nevada. I believe there’s another County by Reno where prostitution is legal. Clark County where Las Vegas is; Prostitution is illegal. Contrary to most peoples belief; usually after they get arrested. lol.

    Folks,

    The nation of the United States of America has never had any WEALTH, we have given it all away LONG before any one here was even born!
    So the facts are really quite clear, you’re all Slaves to the State and have been since you were born.
    We are just a product that serves the State by way of TAXING your very existence for these Blood sucking Vampires to exist.
    Again we are a PEOPLE FARM, we are no differant than a Cow or a Chicken or Sheep etc..

    Its in fact -YOU who all keep this bloodsucking Monster alive by your very consent.
    Please don’t cry about it, – Well that is unless you really plan on fixing the problem, then and only then do you have any right to speak.
    What will you do?
    Will you learn when the problems began?
    Will YOU address these issues with a lust to repair them?

    OR – Will you vote once again for the same old coin, Mitt or Oman?

    Or will you grasp your Freedom with both hands and Vote Dr. Ron Paul?
    Or will you still play the same old lesser of TWO EVILS game? Your choice.

    Peace and Love, May the light of TRUTH shine on you soon.

    Time, how about I vote for someone who won’t have us neck deep in a war right here in our own front yard because he told the whole world we are fighting for nothing and paying nothing not heard of by the founding fathers?

    • Vicki

      Since you used the front yard analogy lets finish it.

      Ron Paul says we should not walk over to our neighbors house and punch him in the nose.
      obama did just that in libya. And he was not the first to do so.

      • Chisna

        Yeah ? Well if I heard my neighbor threaten to kill his family and then began to hear them scream for help. I’m not going to stand by and do nothing. Would you ? Would Ron Paul ?

      • Vicki

        Chisna takes the analogy too far which is essentially inevitable with any analogy by saying:
        ——————————————————-
        Yeah ? Well if I heard my neighbor threaten to kill his family and then began to hear them scream for help. I’m not going to stand by and do nothing. Would you ? Would Ron Paul ?
        ——————————————————-

        Whatcha going to do? go over and shoot the neighbor cause you thought you heard a threat? Wouldn’t you at least want to know if it was the neighbor or the family screaming for help? Sort of like the problem with another country. Who is screaming for help? The good guys or the bad guys?

      Dear Chester,

      The founding fathers said what again? They never said hey lets go rob, loot, rape, and kill anyone who has what we want, well that is as far as I can understand from what they wrote.

      So how is it you have come to the CONclusion that they felt that way?
      Perhaps you could show me in print where it is that they stated such. Thanks in advance,

      JFTR, Mitt and Oman both back the NDAA. So just who is it your talking about?
      Dr. Ron Paul and his son Rand are amoung only 5 people within both houses of CONgress that voted NO on the NDAA. But hey why let the TRUTH be known.

      Peace and Love, May the Light of TRUTH shine on you very soon.

      • Vicki

        In the final house vote there were a few more than 5 who voted no.
        136 in fact. What is sad for the GOP is that only 43 were Republican votes while 93 democrats voted no. Maybe the NDAA 2012 didn’t go far enough for them but they still voted no.
        http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2011/roll932.xml

        14 didn’t vote at all. Including Ron Paul :(

  • Sue

    Where was it ever made known that the money spent for hookers was government money?

    • http://www.mototcarsfinancial.com Brad

      sue it was their own money and they wanted a discount after the party was over.

      • Vicki

        Since they are government employees it technically is money from government. Perhaps they are paid too much that they have personal money to spend on sex. But they did have a valid contract with the government to get paid for their work.

  • DavidL

    No spin necessary. The behavior was not only dumb but wrong. Keep finding those who either committed the behavior or tolerated it, and then keep holding them accountable. Fire all involved! Even W. Bush, I would hope, would have handled this situation in the same way.

  • JON

    It’s only the fault of the agents who hired the hookers and no one else!

    • http://www.mototcarsfinancial.com Brad

      sure it is Jon. The problem is we no longer set an example for our young people, so it will only get worse. begin cleaning it up by paddlin’ these kids in school and at home again.

      • 45caliber

        Brad:

        I think a lot of that IS to set an example for our youth. It’s like teaching them sex is okay in school. Perhaps one of those girls might take the training and give them a little when they get a little older – or even as young as they are now.

  • Deerinwater

    This alleged scandal don’t tell us all that much about government other then it’s as only as good as the people that comprise it, regardless of titles, labels or times. The same could be said for any assemble, church, business no matter.

    Racy women have been a temptation few men can ignore since well before Samson & Deliaha. Especially men that have done with so little womanly attention, their needs greatly enhanced.

    Sex is a misdemeanor, da mor ya miss da meaner you get.

    Root say; On the other hand, the Colombian prostitution scandal could serve as a valuable lesson to all government employees because of something more shocking than the sex. The Secret Service agents did two things that government employees usually don’t while on official business: They used their own money and even attempted to get a better deal.

    What ?? That’s what you see as a lesson to government employees? In what way? That no lesson that I can grab hold of.

    The lesson to be learned here, is don’t attempt to circumvent a qualified local broker and expect a hansom price for a quality experience in unfamiliar territory if you expect it fly under the radar. Such brooding stock by their very nature can be explosive, you really have not a clue what they might do. This fire is part of the makeup and their attraction.

    You don’t have to like what I say to you, but not all truths are something that should be.

    You’d be amazed how well “reality” works ~ try it sometimes.

    I think that we didnt get the whole story,of exactly what happenned,i seriously doubt that story where they agreed to pay the broads $800.it is PROBABLY 800 IN THE COLUMBIAN MONEY. (i dont know the rate of exchange) but,the true price was probably closer to $50.00,but,so what?if they wanted to play,its their business,they were off duty.

    • Sue

      EXACTLY! If this had never been made public by the hooker herself after being ripped off but if Obumbo had found out he wouldn’t have thought a second about it. It’s LEGAL in Colombia. I have never gotten the whole issue with all of this anyway

      Are you saying that because of this, we shouldn’t try? Actually, I think the first investigations should be of all elected officals, followed closely by any top bureaucrat down to about three levels. That won’t take nearly as much money or people. And I think it should be done every year.

  • Doug Rodrigues

    I believe that ever little “scandal” is being focused upon to lessen focus on Barack Obama and Eric Holder. For example, who really cares if an athlete used steroids or lied about it? Is that something that Congress should investigate? Who gives a rats a** about that? Why isn’t Eric Holder brought up on charges of lying to Congress? Why isn’t an investigation focused on Obama’s fake birth certificate?

      Over 500,000 approx troops from other countries currently in the USA from other countries being trained to quell unrest in America

      750 million rounds of 40 cal MANRIPPER rounds and other ammo purchased by DHS, they can only be used domestic because they are banned by Geneva convention due to the horrible wounds they inflict.

      30000 drones spying on Americans — WTF for?

      Soon the full takeover of America begins.

        I’ve never heard of those rounds being used in anything but a handgun. I’ll put up a rifle or a shotgun against a hand gun any day. And there are any number of ways to make a bullet as nasty as what they are buying. For instance, cut a simple cross across the tip of the bullet.

        45 if the SHTF you bet I will be making those cuts,,,the estimated casualty rats for the russian troops fighting Americans is 80 plus percent, why would the russians send the troops…..

        “Farmogadon”, I bet you can buy it at discounted prices! Probably the only way they can sell it. Like Palin’s $27.50 book, I think I bought for $4.00 along with Ron Paul’s book “Tear down the Fed”

        “At Little Village, most students must take the meals served in the cafeteria or go hungry or both. During a recent visit to the school, dozens of students took the lunch but threw most of it in the garbage uneaten. Though CPS has improved the nutritional quality of its meals this year, it also has seen a drop-off in meal participation among students, many of whom say the food tastes bad.”

        “A school system spokesperson said she didn’t know how many other schools have adopted this draconian policy. Given that we almost certainly would have heard about it elsewhere, it is likely that Little Village is the only school that employs it.”

        FF one nutty public school system, in a nation with hundreds of thousands of public school systems seem to be just enough for “some people” to make the claim “our school systems are not allowing children to take their lunch to school.

        Why must you take delight in dwelling on the exception while completely ignoring the “rule” just to make you case of an “evil empire” is attempting to raise it’s ugly head? This is “fear mongering” of the highest order.

      And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.” – Gen. 1:29 (KJV)

      Definition of MARIJUANA
      1: hemp 1a, c
      2: the dried leaves and flowering tops of the pistillate hemp plant that yield THC and are smoked in cigarettes for their intoxicating effect.

      Definition of HEMP
      1 a: a tall widely cultivated Asian herb (Cannabis sativa of the family Cannabaceae, the hemp family) that has a tough bast fiber used especially for cordage and that is often separated into a tall loosely branched species (C. sativa) and a low-growing densely branched species (C. indica) b: the fiber of hemp c: a psychoactive drug (as marijuana or hashish) from hemp
      2: a fiber (as jute) from a plant other than the true hemp; also: a plant yielding such fiber

      The dictionary defines marijuana as a herb, God’s Holy Word says that’s one of HIS blessings! I need no other law!!!

    War on scandal? Where do you begin? The services, the government, industries, schools, homes, where? The simple truth is there is a total moral breakdown in America. If want be truthful we’ve got to look in the mirror and I’m not excluding myself. People that think they are moral but have been apathetic to the lack of morality all around them are like the person that hires a hit man rather than commit the crime himself. “I saw the enemy and the enemy is us”.

    We’ve let such words as democacy creep into our vocabulary when all that a democracy is is a society that takes a vote on anything and because the majority wants it it’s OK. We think laws will solve our problem instead of being a society practicing morality in our hearts. Where Gods spirit is, there is Liberty. We’ve traded liberty for freedom and all that freedom is another word for status, like serfdom.

    MORAL: God’s code of conduct for our actions and interactions
    IMMORALITY: Knowing what morality is and breaching it but being capable of repentance.
    AMORALITY: Functioning outside of morality, following Satan’s code of conduct

    We all can decide for ourselves what the problem is and what to do about it. If enough of us make the right choice, things will get better. If not? Look around us. We know what the other choice offers. We’re living it.

      Wildey, is there no immorality or amorality within the Christian religion? Could it be there is too much of both in Christianity to keep us on the staright and narrow since an overwhelming majority of our past and present leaders in Congress have professed to being “Christians”? There is ample evidence that scandal and wasteful spending has happened within both parties? agreed?? That being the case, it becomes a matter of whose “Christians” are the worst! I’ll bet it’s “their” Christians instead of “our” Christians!! Can we really KNOW the difference or KNOW what is really in their hearts OR only guess??? Judge not lest ye be judged or something like that> I read that somewhere! Do you know where it may have come from?? The Bible??? Wouldn’t that make it amoral to judge?? Could it just be a matter of human nature to “judge” and have nothing to do with morality or the “Satan” of the Christian religion??

        nc:

        If you are basing what a Christian is based on our national leaders who confess to being a Christian, it is no wonder you are confused about it. A Christian is someone who believes in Jesus Christ AND TRIES TO LIVE THAT WAY. Those in Washington, despite what they say (primarily to get votes), do NOT live as a Christian. At most, they don’t believe there is God or an after life at all. They certainly don’t believe there is a punishment like hell after death or they wouldn’t be doing what they do.

        “Judge not, that ye be not judged.” Matt. 7:1 (KJV)
        nc, every single human that has ever been born or that will ever be born, ALL have one common trait, we are all SINNERS!!! That DOES NOT exclude Christians! They have simply chosen to follow the ONLY ONE who has ever lived and that did so and knew no sin!!! By doing that, His rightousness covers our unrightousness! In short nc, Christians are not going to be perfect! They’re GOING to make mistakes, some of them SINFUL ones! Don’t you see nc, that’s why we NEED Jesus!!!

    I have never in my long life had fear of the US Government, and I still dont, but the evil that has now taken control of the US Government is to be feared and we the people need stop this takeover of America, it is almost to late

    Are these FEMA transport trucks being deployed? They certainly are not giant bird cages painted goverment army green. Keep in mind the anticipated riots of the coming summer and take a good hard look at these trucks – giant human cages for transport to FEMA CONCENTRATION CAMPS

        If the worse case senario were to (God FORBID!!!) happen 45, the city would prove to be the best place for those who didn’t possess the skills nessesary to live off of the land. Let’s face it, those of us in the country will be totally isolated and if you don’t possess the skills to live out here or, let’s face it, some people simply just can’t handle it, the urban setting might prove more stable, GOOD people will ALWAYS find each other and stick together!

    Nothing new been going on for as long as i can remember, Not only the SS but just about every dept in Govt, Just as your Comgressmen But they keep them on taxpayers Payroll.These guys just got caught with the pants down, Bet their wifes are going to be upset. Only one that will come out of this smelling good will be the HO selling the story and the Boys allowed to Retire.
    Seems like these Boys in the SS are not as smart as they use to be.
    Basic problem is these people are on call 24 hrs a day, just as the Military is when on assignment, also the Security access to these people was compromised.

      I’m quite sure that the reason they were caught this time was because they didn’t expect to get caught. After all, they got away with it before, just as the people with them do.

    Politicians have always been wasteful with our money, Just keeps getting worst, and they know they can get away with it, Politicians guarding Politicians, Now lets see where did they misplace that 50 million dollars, heck no big thing the taxpayers will never miss it.Even if they did They cant or want do anything about it.
    They have a way of giving taxpayers money to their friends, a govt contract 5 million dollars was issued to ex politicians company for a security system in a top security complex, The Security Police found that the system was not operating Properly, Turned in many reports on the defective system, Reply its been taken care of, System was never repaired, ONE year and no repairs. A few of the Security Police said that if the system was not repaired they would go Report this to Higher People The People in charge issued a new contract to the same Company for 2.5 million to make the system work, ALL THEY DID WAS COME IN AND REPAIR THE ORIGINAL PROBLEM, It took them a week to locate several sensors and a bad computer chip. All should have been taken care of in the orig inflated contract, Two Security Policemen who watched the repairs called the contract Officer and reported the minor repairs and complained that the second contract was a rip off. Three days later these two Policeman were discharged.These Policemen tried to fight BUT that is anoughter story AND they Lost. Politicians Protect Politicians.

    The road to bankruptcy has been going on from spending $100 million to investigate Clinton scandal while the investigators had their x-rated scandals going on or the kids which came to light during the investigations. We had the “brownie” wasteful spending and total failure in the aftermath of Katrina. We had already been lied into looking for “WND’s” never found. Yes this was in the past but we still have the debt to pay. Still looking for reasonable solutions to get the earmarks halted and run away travel spending by Congress members.

    You only have to look at your leaders to know what follows. When we see nothing but liars and thieves you cant expect any better from the followers. If you can gain an office of the pres. by forgeries and lying and have the supreme justices uphold that action , where do you think our nation has gone. And the level of intelegence that has dropped to unheard of levels .. Doesnt any of them have any idea what communism is doing to our country /
