REPORT: Obama’s Secret Service Tried to Enter Home Without Warrant… Local Police Kept Their Oath and Refused

The Constitution only works if it is followed and honored by those sworn to defend it — and luckily, it looks like those people do still exist.

A new report has harsh words for Barack Obama’s Secret Service detail, and claims that they tried to violate the Constitution and pressured local law enforcement to falsify documents. However, police officers in Tennessee reportedly refused to comply with the illegal requests, and stood up against the unconstitutional actions.

News Channel 5 reports that Secret Service agents told Nashville police to falsify a warrant, in order to illegally go after who citizen who posted alleged “threatening” comments critical of Obama on Facebook.

Reportedly, Secret Service agents visited the home of a citizen in Nashville, and knocked on his door to interrogate him about social media posts. However, the individual refused to allow the agents to enter without a warrant — which is of course his legal right.

That’s when the Secret Service called for backup from the local police. They claimed that the man was armed in his own home — again, not illegal — and demanded that the local police “wave a piece of paper” as a fake warrant, to dupe their way inside the house.

The Nashville police refused. They told the Secret Service that the man was legally allowed to have a gun in his own home, and that they had no reason for a warrant.

When the Chief of Police heard about the illegal request to violate citizens Constitutional rights, he got angry — and then he took action. Chief Steve Anderson contacted the Secret Service Director to complain about the illegal request… but in response, he was told to “mind his own affairs.” The Secret Service refused to investigate the problem.

The angry Anderson then met with Secret Service officials, and asked: “Do you think it is appropriate to wave a piece of paper in the air and tell him you have a warrant when you do not have a warrant?” Their arrogant response? “I don’t know, I’m not a lawyer.”

To his credit, Chief Anderson kept pushing. He sent a harshly critical letter to the U.S. House Committee on Oversight, complaining about the attitude and illegal actions of Obama’s Secret Service. That letter is available online here — and it’s getting a lot of attention.

What do you think — is it time for Congress to take action against the overreach and illegal actions of Obama’s administration, or would that action do nothing to fix the problem?

Kuwait Uses “Gaydar” To Keep Out LGBT

gaydar

If you have been keeping up with international news you just might have seen the little tidbits offered about Kuwait implementing “gaydar” to keep LGBT (Lesbians, Gays, Bisexual, and Transgender) out of their country. Other countries in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Countries) that include Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates already deem homosexual acts as unlawful. Health centers conduct the routine medical check to assess the health of the  expatriates when they come into the GCC countries. However, they are taking  stricter measures that will help them detect gays who will be then barred from  entering Kuwait or any of the GCC member states. And did you know that It’s illegal to be gay in 78 countries, with  lesbianism banned in 49. Five countries mete out the death penalty to gay people, those being Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Yemen and Mauritania.

  • Iran:  Since 1979, the government has executed more than 4,000 people charged with  homosexual acts. A non-adult who engages in consensual sodomy is subject to a  punishment of 74 lashes.
  • Saudi  Arabia: Although the maximum punishment for homosexuality is execution,  the government tends to use other punishments – such as fines, prison sentences,  and whipping – unless it feels that homosexuals have challenged state authority  by engaging in social movements.
  • Sudan: For homosexual men, lashes are given  for the first offence, with the death penalty following the third offence. 100  lashes are given to unmarried women who engage in homosexual acts. For lesbian  women, stoning and thousands of lashes are the penalty for the first offence.
  • Yemen: Homosexuality is still illegal in Yemen  in accordance to the country’s Shari’a legal system. Punishment ranges from  flogging to death.
  • Mauritania: The Shari’a law applies in  Mauritania. The penal code states that, since 1983, any adult Muslim caught engaging in an ‘unnatural act’ with a member of the same sex is punishable with  the death sentence by public stoning.

This warped plan comes from Kuwait’s director of public health, Yousuf Mindkar. The clinical screens are meant to make sure the foreigners entering the Arab countries are healthy. But Mindkar wants to use them as an opportunity to crack down harder on what’s been seen as a troublesome rise in the country’s gay population. Theoretically, the health officials in Kuwait could distil this practice and other similar research findings into a science-inspired gay detection screening process. But the accuracy rate would be far from proficient, and leaps and bounds away from the level of proof sufficient to ban someone from entering the country. We don’t even have to look to the East for examples of homophobic immigration law. For 22 years the United States tried to screen out HIV-positive foreigners which could be considered a form of gay discrimination. Meanwhile, Kuwait’s gaydar plan is set to be debated at the Gulf Cooperation Countries committee meeting next month. It will be interesting to see if the committee gives the proposal the green light, and even more interesting to find out how Mindkar proposes to pull it off. Unfortunately, wherever the gay detector falls in the spectrum between asking someone if they like sports or analyzing their facial width-to-height ratio, it won’t be the first time history has used soft science to justify a kind of witch hunt rooted in fear and hatred. And those never ended very well in the past.

Everything I have read about or seen on the television about Kuwait and the GCC using supposed scientific tests to ban people from entering one of the countries has sent red flags right up my WTF flag pole. As a serving member of the United States Air Force (active duty) I was stationed in the Gulf region in the country of Kuwait as well as visiting Bahrain for r & r. As an American, used to American culture, I witness first hand, what appeared to me, as unethical treatment to human beings. That’s not seeing things as only a foreigner to the county but as a human being. Who gives a flying fuck what a person’s sexual orientation or their sexual preference is. I wonder why we haven’t seen any WBC (Westboro Baptist Church) support for Kuwait and the GCC. Maybe the WBC has been banned from those countries as well. Neither here nor there, it just seems like there are countries who wish to alienate themselves from others in the world. I would think this would affect their income from international travels no matter their orientation. Anyway, just wanted to pass on some international bullshit news that struck me as worthy to put here.

As a housekeeping note, the 3, count them 3, pictures were borrowed from 3 different sources found publicly on the world-wide web using a Google search. They don’t belong to me or this blog and were, at the time of posting, considered to be free to use in the public domain. If 1 or all of the pictures belong to you or your organization just inform me and I will remove them with haste.
