Directed a tweet to my to the Secret Service on, August 11, 2016.
Trump is jonesing for a hit on Hillary. Proving himself the great Pooh-bah of the lunatic fringe, on September 16, Trump invited the Secret Service to disarm themselves around Hillary.
That Trump doesn’t sound Presidential to anyone, is not the point. Briefly, he’s insane.
Trump’s earlier attack on Hillary referenced the Supreme Court (for which Republicans refuse to hold hearings.) Trump assassination talk was in a sly reference of how to stop Hillary from appointing candidates for the Supreme Court and there being nothing anyone can do about it, adding “although maybe the Second Amendment people“ before his thought trailed off. However, the implication was there – as evidenced by the shocked look on the face of the man in the red shirt on the right, demonstrated.
Similar to a JFK Treason Poster below. (Complete with how not to spell, “marriage.”)
The results could be deadly for Hillary Clinton. Much like Trump’s insane candidacy, media appeared not to notice until Trump’s dog-whistle assassination, mention.
Therefore, on July 21, 2016, was the first to go on record with my fear of the real possibility that the Secret Service could get Hillary Clinton killed. Their ineptness appears to be building a separate, legend.
Well, consider the run-up.
This Tweet from Riverside County GOP
Story here. Riverside County GOP Chairman Scott Mann said: “I was made aware of derogatory Tweet this afternoon toward Secretary Clinton when the Press-Enterprise called me for comment. I was horrified and had the Tweet taken down immediately. While some may think it was political satire, it clearly has no place in American political dialogue.
“As Chairman of the Republican Party of Riverside County, I apologize to everyone and anyone who was offended by it. I have taken steps to ensure that the individual who posted the Tweet no longer has access and I can assure you the person responsible will be held accountable.”
The Secret Service?
The Secret Service said they were aware of it. Nifty. The Secret Service response bears a resemblance to police statements made after a terrorist blows up people and buildings. I can’t be the only one who notices police response is generally,
“We were aware of XYZ; and had them on our radar.”
Other threats – Other Secret Service shrugs
No word the Secret Service is investigating an OHIO case.
proving yet again that openly wishing death on a Presidential candidate, is indicative of misogyny in the extreme.
Although Flowers later apologized; the facts are simple.
An elected official who feels entirely comfortable openly wishing death on Hillary Clinton – America’s first female Presidential candidate, signals how deeply misogyny is embedded in American DNA.
And it’s downright scary. Need a few more police misogyny clues? No problem! Happy to help! Click here.
Trump supporters being extremely vocal in their belief executing Hillary is “in the Constitution” – direct from a report in Mother Jones. Including,
“She’s extremely corrupt, she’s extremely dangerous,” said Rhonda Welsch, a 55-year-old food and beverage worker at a Hawaii resort. “I think that’s what she deserves: the death penalty.”
Secret Service response? Crickets. (Again.) Clearly there are no more Clint Hill’s.
Next we have an elected New Hampshire official stating Hillary Clinton should be put before a firing squad. (I am not making this up.)
But it’s New Hampshire so, consider the source.
New Hampshire is known for their in unhinged, misogynistic rants. That said, traitorous rantings from a former Marine cannot be ignored. Still, New Hampshire legislator Al Baldasaro home to the slogan, “Live free or Die” is the same state that brought us the longest serving New Hampshire alderman, Crow Dickinson. Crow liked to crow and famously said, “Domestic Violence is a gimmick.” Crow believed women should not have equal protection under the Constitution to be safe. Specifically, Crow said,
“I don’t think taxpayers should be responsible for funding a program that takes in abused women,” Dickinson said. “The church should, the neighbors should, and anybody who’s interested should. But not taxpayers. “ Dickinson said, “Clearly, there’s a need” for such a program. But he also said Starting Point is a “new program” that “needs to demonstrate they can do whatever they’re doing and be successful and show a big need. “ Starting Point has been in existence since 1981. ”There are a lot of women who use (domestic violence) as a gimmick in divorce proceedings,” Dickinson said. “All they have to do is call the police and get the person thrown out. If I call the police and say you’re abusing me, they’d have to believe me. I wish people would split up and be more polite about it. “ Although Dickinson said he had “absolutely no question” that there are legitimate cases of domestic violence, he added, “Just because you have a worthy cause doesn’t mean we should put money in a tin cup. Some people are very convincing. It’s not an easy thing to say no. “ Instead of taxpayers being asked to give the organization money, Dickinson said, “A lot of people could make contributions to this effort.”
(When I called Crow on his anti-American rhetoric against women, he hung up on me.)
So that’s New Hampshire’s background for which blowhard Al Baldasaro’s firing-squad rhetoric, below, came.
“I’m a veteran that went to Desert Shield, Desert Storm. I’m also a father who sent a son to war, to Iraq, as a Marine Corps helicopter avionics technician. Hillary Clinton to me is the Jane Fonda of the Vietnam,” Baldasaro said. “She is a disgrace for the lies that she told those mothers about their children that got killed over there in Benghazi. She dropped the ball on over 400 emails requesting back up security. Something’s wrong there.”
“This whole thing disgusts me, Hillary Clinton should be put in the firing line and shot for treason,” Baldasaro added.
Why Baldasaro wasn’t escorted out by the Secret Service thirty seconds after those remarks, is: America’s first clue the Secret Service is not on the job.
Of course Baldasaro, like the rest of GOP, ignores that Bush and Colin Powell both deleted emails. But as Republican Crow Dickinson and crazy blowhard Al Baldasaro proved: in a GOP world, men enjoy one standard; women quite another.
So it’s not the emails. Emails are merely a convenient cover for misogyny. If it wasn’t emails, it would be something else. Tonight we’ll likely hear more angry attacks on Hillary Clinton from the reality-star entertainer-GOP nominee. Media loves this, for ratings. Ratings equal ad dollars. Misogyny for profit!
What’s worrisome, is, under Joe Clancy, the Secret Service seems to be comatose when Baldasaro, a Trump delegate to the Republican National Convention of 2016, made his unprecedented “Firing squad” remark.
That Baldasaro is a dangerous fool cannot be denied. But is he also, unhinged?
The point is the lack of security for Hillary Clinton. The Secret Service is well aware Trump gatherings since the beginning, were designed by Trump to promote violent assaults. Trump is so clueless he actually thinks anything that make good TV, trumps all. Trump’s an entertainer. A voting member of the Screen Actors Guild. He is a television personality — running for president; and creating a dangerous real-life horror show along the way.
Scary is Joe Clancy allowing the Secret Service to become bit players in Trump’a reality show, charade. Our Secret Service has done nothing to tamp down Trump’s real-life, violent rhetoric. Why?
It’s mot as if women everywhere don’t know that Any threat unaddressed is a threat that is made with tacit approval. So the question must be asked: What service is the Secret Service providing for Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton? Right now it seems to be a secret.
How the Secret Service should have handled Baldasaro
The correct Secret Service response would have been, immediate.
The correct Secret Service response would have been to quickly and quietly surround Baldarosa, then walking him off the stage, out of the area (to an undisclosed area) — followed shortly after with a press conference announcing Baldarosa was being held during their investigation, and that part of the investigation included testing.
The Secret Service response to specific questions referencing mental health testing of Baldarosa, would be a terse, “No comment” – leaving reporters to their sources. Ending the press conference, the Secret Service spokesperson would mention Baldarosa was placed on a “No Fly” list until further notice.
In other words, the appropriate Secret Service response would be a heads up – the Secret Service will not tolerate any talk of treason, period.
That didn’t happen. Nothing of the sort, happened. By the day’s end the Secret Service merely said they were “investigating.” Very tame.
What happened to the “rapid response” the Secret Service used to be famous for?
Silly rabbit. Quick action is for men.
This is why all women —but especially Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, should worry. And that’s separate from Donald Trump slyly inviting her murder.
Does anyone not know the climate of violence against women is amping up?
With a fist-pump from the GOP nominee, Americans feel quite comfortable stating their violent wishes. We have become, thanks to Trump, an increasingly violent county…and an especially misogynistic one. Including our police. Consider this: All by themselves; in a listing of all government occupations: Our police earned the highest rate of domestic violence attacks against their family members.
And they’re guarding Hillary Clinton. Still feeling comfortable?
(Yes, thanks. I do remember the Secret Service busily arranging for private hook-ups when they were supposed to be doing protecting our President in South America.)
Media. Given the Secret Service’s dim view of women to begin with — and separate from the firing-squad rhetoric; add media interviewing as the worst optic of all:
Former Governor, Haley Barbour, interviewed by Chuck Todd, as a “distinguished” Republican.
Tellingly, Chuck Todd never once referenced Barbour’s misogynistic past support of wife killers.
Haley Barbour released Michael David Graham, sentenced to life after Michael blew away Adrienne Klasky, his ex-wife, after Adrienne made the mistake of driving to the same intersection as Michael, three years after their divorce. Graham blew her away at the light with his handy shot-gun and a blast to her head.
Graham was tried, convicted, sentenced to life in prison, and wound up working in the Governor’s mansion after becoming a “trustee.” But Haley Barbour liked the killer. So being a good ole boy, Haley Barbour decided a life sentence was too much for his pal. So Graham and 8 other killers were freed by Law and Order Haley Barbour and now are free walking men.
Law and Order? Where?
Consider Tucson Police Department officer Brandon Tatum, who sucker punched a protestor who was being escorted out of the stadium. Tatum was arrested but the Pima County DA “declined to prosecute Tatum for his unprovoked attack. Tatum promptly changed his Facebook page to look less, “para-military” to flat-out, “military.”
all while (I’m not making this up) preaching Love as the solution. Tatum’s right. Just on the wrong team. Pima County DA, Barbara LaWall, provided the cop standard, get-out-of-jail-free, card; when she “declined to prosecute” Tatum for his assault.
Law and Order: Where?
Have a gander at these police officers! Cops attacking women, including their wives, both on and off duty.
In Congress? Misogyny wins. Has won for hundreds of years. Who believes Hillary Clinton is safe with this kind of record?
When might the Secret Service begin doing their job? Here, let me help. Here’s the Code Section. 18 U.S.C. § 879
The Secret Service under Joe Clancy – a West Point graduate, is not unaware. However, Secret Serice inaction signals a huge problem for Hillary Clinton’s safety.
Joe Clancy’s testimony for a bigger budget for 2017, is geared to Defense. Not Pro-active. Also, as has been demonstrated, their “protection training” clearly, isn’t cutting it.
“I am also pleased to report that the establishment of a standalone Office of Training (Training) is producing big results for the agency. Beyond the basic training necessary to support our expanded hiring activities, Training has increased its offerings for our existing workforce. In the past year alone, nearly 800 Uniformed Division officers have attended Emergency Action and Building Defense training, while another 650 officers attended mission in-service training. Training also conducted 30 candidate protection training sessions at the JJRTC and in the field for a total of 943 special agents. Another 11 detail training courses for 221 special agents were completed, all while maintaining an extremely demanding operational tempo.”
Buzzfeed News reported Baladasro stands by his comments, much like Trump’s German butler. The Secret Service sees a pattern building – but chooses, steadfastly, to ignore it.
As the Secret Service is not only not women friendly, (except for working girls) the question must be asked: Is the Secret Service putting Clinton at risk? I think it is.
By now most Americans realize the Republican Party is almost wholly, misogynistic. The Republican Convention for 2016, is nothing short of a misogyny rally. Threats are now made often, openly, on prime time, and; largely ignored. To be blunt, Hillary Clinton is not safe.
If our Secret Service personnel continue to allow GOP’s misogyny rally, headed by Trump to unfold, we need new agents and a new director; stat.
