I will warn everyone up front: Threats to the life of the President are illegal and if anyone posts that they would like to see this happen will be banned immediately. Just an FYI.

This is a news story, and a point of discussion, not a soap box. Treat it as such.

The first thing I am reminded of is English Bob's discussion on the difference between royalty and a president in "Unforgiven". I actually don't believe this story though and from the nazi germany-like propaganda communications dept bragging about controlling all the information, I believe they want you to think the "great man" is being threatened so much more than any other president. More than Bush? I doubt it very very much from hearing all the venom directed at that man for the last 8 years. I am not saying there aren't threats , there are always threats, I just don't believe 400% more than Bush..No way.

It's also very convenient this "strain" is being used to suggest that they are so strained (actually I'm really having a hard time understanding this, the President has a protection detail that goes where he goes, with the idea that he is a target 24/7, so how would an increase in the number of threats make them suddenly unable to guard their package?) anyway, so strained that monitoring of financial matters should go to treasury, the dept in my opinion thats commiting the most financial fraud (can you say monetizing the debt and trying to hide it through auctions?) I don't believe anything from the West Wings "Ministry for Enlightenment and Propaganda" anymore. And yes I did say that.

I can believe this story about a large increase in threats .. While I do not like Obama and his direction he is trying to take this country I don't think it is any reason to make threats .. After all this nation voted him in to the seat of the presidency and should not be surprised by his actions .. A large part of the anger is toward the financial problems of the nation that was not caused by Obama , but he has fell short of what everyone thought he could do about it .. Other reasons like the whole national health care debate Ext.ext. has enraged a larger audience than those with the Bush era ..

The Man promised us "free bubble up and rainbow stew(from a silver spoon too)". Sure, the ones who voted for him, then figured out how government pays the bills, got mad, and thats on them. But, if threats are up, IMHO it would be from those who voted against socialism in the first place, and are now angry that we have to deal with it. :devilsidesmile:

Didn't Hillary Clinton say he was going to be killed in a round about way?? Something about JFK was killed in June... and history repeats itself... I am too lazy to look it up, but if I remember correctly it was said when someone asked her if she was going to drop the bid for presedency... Now, I in no-way condone the assassination of our president, no matter who it is.. I may not respect the person, but I respect the office. And if something did happen to him, I feel it would cause a huge issue, and could escalate to a Civil War.

I've heard of situations where someone makes a "threat" against the P. on the internet, even though it's completely empty, and said in passing, half joking. I'd repeat the wording, but the SS searches the internet for it. I'm not kidding. when they find it, they investigate; find out who the person is, and pay them a visit in person. lots of people hated bush, but most were sissy liberals who don't believe in gun rights anyway |D. but obama, well, he's black. and there are a lot of people out there with very strong opinions of blacks, much less a black man as commander in chief. 99% of these "threats" come from people who are just mouthing off online and nothing will ever come of it, but I think the SS still tries to investigate all of them.

and for the record, I don't believe any P. should be threatened with violence unless they're illegally controlling the country and congress doesn't feel comfortable in initiating impeachment. and I don't believe the P. is doing that.

You know the hipocracy from the left knows no bounds. We hear all this "it's racial" etc. "People want to off him cause he's black"..and on and on. Did anyone catch Gore Vidal on Joy Behars new show? Vidal actually said on the cable network show about former president Bush "That's one murder I missed not committing." and Behar agrees "It's too late anyway" and the Obama adulation is tripe, but why aren't these 2 being investigated??

Here's a link to a page that has the video, a more stunning example of elitism I can't find.

Like I said I am too lazy to look it up.. Thank you for clarifying. I will have to see if I can find that quote...

Edit.

Found it.. google is amazing for lazy people.. She was talking about Robert Kennedy... my bad for thinking the wrong Kennedy.
http://aliwlibdem.blogspot.com/2008/05/clinton-hints-at-obamas-death.html This is a blog, Can't find it in the news articles.

Hillary Clinton in her desperate attempts to justify her staying in the race said, "My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June... We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don't understand it."

I see a different motive for this.

The thing that worries me is this. After the SS gives up its authority to investigate financial fraud (counterfeiting etc.) and relinquishes it to the treasury, who is going to be watching henhouse so to speak? This sounds like a thinly veiled power play by the money trust.

It's also very convenient this "strain" is being used to suggest that they are so strained (actually I'm really having a hard time understanding this, the President has a protection detail that goes where he goes, with the idea that he is a target 24/7, so how would an increase in the number of threats make them suddenly unable to guard their package?) anyway, so strained that monitoring of financial matters should go to treasury, the dept in my opinion thats commiting the most financial fraud (can you say monetizing the debt and trying to hide it through auctions?)

Um, the Secret Service IS Treasury Department

Not since 2003 they aren't, they are Dept of Homeland Security and even under Treasury they were a seperate law enforcement agency so investigating the financial matters that the treasury secratary is playing kind of loose with these days. You know, bank fraud, treasury notes etc.
