    DSS - U.S. Diplomatic Security Service

    DSS - U.S. Diplomatic Security Service (U.S. Department of State)

    Remember not too long ago that the USSS and the DSS were discussing who was going to protect Hillary Clinton the new Secretary of State (SECSTATE)? Since Clinton is a former First Lady she is entitled to life long Secret Service protection. However, the DSS is mandated by law to protect the SECSTATE.

    Here is some information on the DSS. The DSS is little known but a far reaching federal law enforcement agency. Also see the video from CBS Nightly News below.

    Oh, how nice, they used the Southern Poverty Law Center as a source for information.

    I knew my children were in trouble when Obama began to respond to skits on Saturday Night Live. Obama needs to be voted out immediately, before he destroys our country.

    It is not about the person in power. It's about the power that they have.

    It is about the laws that are created as a result of who is in power. These are laws that we are supposed to follow, and will continue to be forced to follow long after the President has been replaced.

    The President doesn't just sit around for 4 years. They can easily change the shape of the country, and could even destroy it.

    Jetting around the country trying to drum up money for his party, while at the same time other party members are hyping the alleged threats necessitating the need for more tax dollars for "protection?"- Not unusual at all. Especially while those same (limited) protection funds are wasted jetting off to lobby for the Olympics in Chicago (no precedence there ).

    The guy is spending us into oblivion without the slightest concern for the future. Those around him use fear tactics to justify virtually every "cause" and heaven help those who attempt to call him, his administration or the Democratic Party on any issue. This "leak" (to the Boston Globe) fails the "stink test" as to any authenticity.

    "It should be noted in all of this, however, that the Secret Service has issued a response in which the agency denied any decreased capacity to carry out its missions, saying that the Boston Globe's report was "not accurate and lacks a good deal of information."

    ...and NJ this week to help get Corsine re-elected. For the children.

    The president sure needed to go to San Francisco last week! After all, the DNC fund raising event was a matter of national importance. I'm sure a lot of these serious threats could be prevented, if only there was more cooperation between the media and the White House. Fox News has a disturbing propensity of questioning the party line and raising doubt about those currently holding office. If their ability to question authority was diminished or eliminated, fewer people would exhibit hostility towards our leadership and less Secret Service resources would be required. This could also lead to a safer community in general, as citizens could feel more at ease with the decisions made by most of our elected leaders on our behalf.

    Obviously those opposing the change (mandated by the majority of the electorate) can't be completely silenced, but requiring approval from a central government authority before airing controversial or hateful broadcasts would be a reasonable restriction. If any media group failed to comply, stiff fines or revocation of licenses to broadcast could prevent further occurrences.

    This isn't just about protecting the president. It's about ensuring the safety of members of Congress, local and state legislators and our community at large. While there may be some who question the legality of such proposals, we can all agree that if they save just one child, the minor inconvenience will be worth it!
