Julia Pierson: As Incompetent Secret Service Chick Chief Resigns

By Debbie Schlussel

I’m not surprised that incompetent Secret Service chieftess Julia Pierson resigned. I’m just surprised it took this long. As I noted her prime “qualifications” for the job were being a woman and having a Billie Jean King brush cut (which she wasted all this money on getting blow-dried yesterday)). And even though Pierson resigned, this is about a culture of incompetence and fear at the Secret Service. The next head of the agency probably won’t be able to clean it up. It’s about an entire country–not just a law enforcement agency–that doesn’t take national security threats seriously. And it’s about a government dominated by political correctness and affirmative action, not the safety and well-being of its citizens.

Yesterday’s hearings on the White House intruder brought to light more on the Washington Post story that, in 2011, shots were fired at the White House and nobody knew about it, until a White House maid found broken glass from one of the windows in the residence days after the attack. How on earth does that happen? How could shots be fired at the White House and the Secret Service not know until a maid told them several days later? Ridiculous. While Pierson didn’t head the Secret Service at the time, she was the highest ranking agent in the agency then.

In addition to the Gonzalez breach, they pressed the director on recent disclosures about a 2011 shooting incident that the Secret Service failed to recognize as an attack on the White House until days later. An account of that incident was first reported Sunday by The Washington Post. In a tense exchange with Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., about the shooting, Pierson acknowledged that evidence of the gunfire was not discovered until three or four days after the attack.Ultimately, a White House housekeeper discovered broken glass — damage left by multiple rounds from a high-powered rifle — along the iconic Truman Balcony.







“Can you tell me why a housekeeper found the evidence and your agents did not?” Gowdy asked. “Why not search every inch of the White House? This is just processing a crime scene; this is not high math. Why wasn’t it done?”

“It was not as thorough as it needed to be,” Pierson conceded. The director later said she was particularly “troubled” by recent reports about a young Secret Service officer who was on duty during the 2011 shooting and heard the gunfire. The officer told investigators reviewing the incident that she did not challenge her supervisors’ order to disregard the incident as a false alarm because she feared possible criticism.

This is how “conscientiously” the formerly “elite” U.S. Secret Service agency protects the President. You can extrapolate from that how unprotected we are as a country.

She should be ashamed of herself. Julie Myers too for that matter. Their mere presence, in & of itself is a distraction to the mission at hand. Not to mention, the lack of ability and the negative toll it has on employee morale. There were a handful of deserving and qualified men who didn’t get this position, because she did.

“It’s about an entire country–not just a law enforcement agency–that doesn’t take national security threats seriously.”

Amen!

It is the result of a people as a whole who have lost all sense of right and wrong and therefore all common sense.

John M on October 1, 2014 at 6:33 pm

Goodness! What incompetence. And all of these people are under 75 years of age. Should Zekey expand his parameters?

Little Al on October 1, 2014 at 6:53 pm

This has to be a case of the “Peter Principle”, where incompetence breeds more incompetence.

arrivederci, mister lady guy…

The affirmative action president hires an affirmative action secret service head.

What’s he get.

An undocumented knife wheedling tourist.

Bob Smith on October 1, 2014 at 8:23 pm

This goes way way way beyond Inspector Clouseau and the bumbling Secret Service. A thug like Travon Martin or Michael Brown gets it and the country is still tied up in knots. What’s going to happen if something happens to Obama? Can you say race war? Do you remember April 4th 1968? Can you remember the glow in the night sky from the cities burning? Someone is putting our whole country at risk, … deliberate ?

Tyrannovar on October 1, 2014 at 9:13 pm

    No, Tyrannovar, it’s just that Barky is utterly incompetent. Over the years, two competing schools of interpretation have arisen regarding our prez. One holds that he is arrogant and incompetent, the other that he’s arrogant and crafty. For a couple of years I’ve thought the former had the better argument. That goes double now.

    EVERYONE protects himself. That Barky is failing at this shows that he is, by far, simply inept. Of course he is also a vermin, but that is secondary.

    skzion on October 1, 2014 at 10:56 pm

      No, must disagree here. In appearing to be incompetent, he is doing EXACTLY what he and his puppet masters want him to do. He is bringing the country down, leaving us economically depressed, unprotected by a decimated military, and in danger from our own sleeper cell next door Islamoneighbors.

      Him appearing to be incompetent, perhaps drugged up or coming apart at the seams is just a clever facade, all part of the plan. Can’t prove it, but . . .

      NO ONE, especially with the hard line left wing puppet masters and advisory brigade he has, is THIS “incompetent.” They know EXACTLY what they are doing. Some of my best friends are hard line lefties. They’ve taken over, they know it, and they love a lot of what is going on.

      NO more “military industrial complex,” they LOVE that. EVERYTHING for the environment, even if it means that coal miners, commercial fishers, oil rig workers and the like all have to learn other skills. They LOVE that. NO more plastic bags, they LOVE that. Etc., etc., etc. NO more next door, law abiding neighbors owning guns. They LOVE THAT.

      And on, and on, and on. There’s no incompetence going on here, he’s playing to what he learned as a young man, what he did on the streets of Chicago, and what he promised Mr. Soros and Co. he would do. Be the puppet that brought down The Great Satan, and ushered in One World Government.

      The revolution will not be televised, it’s already happened. In our homes, our schools, on TV, the newspapers, the movies, everything Debbie does her smashing cultural commentaries on. No incompetence, a lot of accomplishment. Just because WE don’t like it, . . .

      doesn’t make it incompetence. I KNOW people personally who want everything that’s going on. They’ll admit they don’t have a plan, but they assure me things will be better and more . . .

      “fair.” Some day.

      He might be failing if he actually cared about succeeding as president.
      Since he doesn’t care about that the final judgement must be made by America’s enemies which include the enemies of Israel in the main.
      By any standard in that department he is a resounding success.
      Obama succeeds because he is constantly working the chip on his shoulder deeper and deeper into the American psyche.
      Americans are helpless because they can’t officially acknowledge that there’s anything special about him on one hand and then on the other because they never imagined they’d have a president that genuinely resents them far more than he appreciates any prestige they try to foist on top of him.

      japple on October 2, 2014 at 4:44 pm

        japple, does Barky care whether or not he is assassinated?

        skzion on October 2, 2014 at 7:10 pm

          Sk,
          Bami 1 Kenya-OG spends too much time on the golf course to worry about security in the White House.
          Although I have to say given that he wears a helmet when cycling he may not be completely gangster.
          The point is OBami1 has made so many deals with the Iranian mullahs and made so many statements kissing Islamic ass that he simply doesn’t believe anybody would be stupid enough to assassinate him. This is probably correct and he has little to fear from the Russians either for the same reason.
          With Allah on his side who can harm him?
          Now whether Obama himself is an incompetent boob or not is not really the issue as far as I’m concerned. He may or may not be but it may also be the case that some people behind him aren’t.
          The real issue is motivation. Motivation will have a direct impact on your actions boob or non-boob.

          If Obama is a boob he is Putin’s boob and Rouhani’s boob. He knows that. They know that.

          japple on October 3, 2014 at 6:56 am

          I guess to summarize SK – incompetence does not exclude malice.

          Yes, you can thank your lucky stars he’s apparently incompetent considering how blithely oblivious you seem determined to be towards the possibility of malice.
          Far luckier than you have any right to be all things considered and in all honesty.

          japple on October 4, 2014 at 3:40 am

Isn’t a sign of competence hiring the right people? Competent bosses higher the right people. What is this man doing? Really, what the hell is he doing?

I wasn’t alive then, or maybe I was age 1 or 2. However I read today were Carter utter the words, “I coulda shoulda annialated Iran, that would have been manly” I paraphrased, but this clown realized this now. Yes Carter it would have save all of us dealing with these Slugs today.

MrBigBrain on October 2, 2014 at 12:20 am

    Carter is such a self deluded goof ball he thinks the reason people didn’t respond to him in the same way they did to Reagan was that he didn’t get the optics right on Iran.
    Iran got the optics right on Carter the first time they laid eyes on him.
    They knew he was a wuss exactly the same way the American people did. It was all in the optics.

    japple on October 2, 2014 at 5:03 pm

I just realized how much I hate middle easterners and everything they stand for. I witnessed their bigotry first hand with some clients of mind. This Iranian is a real piece of sh..finally I told him to fuq off, I had lost my cool and couldn’t remain silent any longer, I forfeited the deal, but to hell with it. Everything I’ve read that Debbie has said about them is true. They all need to be destroyed. (Well I’m saying that) First start with Islam.

MrBigBrain on October 2, 2014 at 12:39 am

This is really depressing. It is amazing that Pierson lasted as long as she did. Barack Obama will avoid hiring a competent person, even when his life may depend on on his doing so.

Worry01 on October 2, 2014 at 1:56 am

Terrific post however I was wanting to know if
you could write a litte more on this subject?

I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit more.
Thank you!

Obama can’t even ensure protection for himself and his own family. G-d help us.

David on October 2, 2014 at 10:31 am

Debbie called it about this woman right from the start.

But there’s something very fishy about these breaches. This latest guy had a knife, but I heard he had 800 rounds of ammo and guns in the car? If that’s true, why not just bring them along, and yes, I know ammo and guns are heavy. Why not bring SOME of it, if he was so sure he was going to get in?

And a knife? He KNOWS he’ll get shot trying to get in the White House, or at least any SANE person would think so.

Oh, that’s right, just call him mentally ill, no one gets killed, no harm, no foul, life goes as before, and the ruse works in the news. And the reason is? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, smells like something Sarah Palin’s husband might bring in from the sea, if it was left on the dock for a few days.

Curiouser and curiouser, the Untied States gets.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 2, 2014 at 11:57 am

Debbie,

Speaking of incompetence, what happened to the Afghani soldiers who skipped out of training in Maryland and ended up trying to get into Canada? All I want to know is…are they back in class?

Fritzi Roth on October 2, 2014 at 12:18 pm

    I red yesterday that they are getting asylum hearings today!!

    OH, goody!! They claim the TALIBAN might kill them if they go back to Afghanistan to be with their families.

    HEY! What makes them think they will be safe here???? : |

    Free money and free this and that and free health care off the US taxpayers makes LOTS of illegals think they are going to killed in their OWN country!!

Erik G. on October 2, 2014 at 12:20 pm

With the legacy of incompetence in this administration, why is Julia Pierson the only one with enough dignity to resign? Seems sexist to me… part of the Dem’s War on Women… Nevertheless, glad they caught it before any harm came to the First Family. Can’t believe President Obama was in an elevator with an armed nut… How bout we don’t take that chance again folks!

Matthew R. Modrack on October 2, 2014 at 12:53 pm

Obama can always go golfing, now that we have this incompetence, ISIS, open borders with diseases being spread to our children, a dropping stock market, and now at least one Ebola patient whose family members have not been quarantined.

Concerned Citizen on October 2, 2014 at 12:54 pm

Debbie, this is nothing new. I have a friend who is a male police officer and recently he had requested backup due to a large male suspect resisting arrest. The perp was 6’2″ and weigh about 250 lbs. My friend is 6′ and 210lbs. His first backup was a female officer who was 5’5″ and 120lbs. He told me he pretty was doing all the subduing all by himself until further officers, who were male, arrived to the scene. He says had this guy encountered the female officer first, there would have been some concern since this guy was a convicted felon who was being sought. This guy had committed a felony third strike and was looking to be in prison for a long time. Knowing this outcome, the suspect was not going to go back to jail willingly.

Debbie I am not against women joining previous all-male professions IF THEY MEET THE QUALIFICATIONS. Unfortunately, being politically correct is more important than anything else even the safety of people.

Mario on October 2, 2014 at 1:20 pm

    @Mario, your friend is right on about the back up. He’s lucky he was competent enough to stay in enough condition to survive. It has always mystified me as to how many females keep up on their hair and nails, but take no additional firearms training or martial arts classes that could even up the odds a bit. Affirmative action has really crippled us, and our future generations. I am amazed at how many women have a crap attitude to current events and traditional roles and values.

    samurai on October 2, 2014 at 10:38 pm

I wonder if ole Billy Jean King is hiring? Someone should start a Kickstarter account for incompetent, canned Lesbians (and/or Lezzer look-a-likes).

Exactamo, DS. It gets tiring and more and more absurd what PCness and Moonbatty Libtards are doing to the country. But as DS stated, they get plenty of help from the GOP so the whole thing is diseased.

Speaking of diseases, if one listens to Moonbats and those in charge regarding Ebola in the USA, you’re foolish. Trust has been long broken and Obama-Putin lies about EVERYTHING.

And even if he didn’t he wouldn’t care if USA was greatly effected by Ebola. It’s politically useful and he hates the country and its citizens anyway!

6Skunky on October 2, 2014 at 2:45 pm

Yes, our US Government would actually be better run with the Pointy Haired Boss making the hiring decisions, rather than members of the Obama Administration. It’s that bad, currently.

But there were warnings before. Eleven members of Obama’s Secret Service detail, that were in Columbia for his Latin American summit, were put on administrative leave, i.e., given extra paid vacation time as a reward. The reason given: partying with booze and prostitutes.

However, there has always been a culture of incompetence and worse in the Secret Service. The classic case was the JFK murder on 11/22/1963. The night before, much of the Dallas agents were up late and early the next morning partying. All of the standard protections for JFK were withdrawn that day. And when the bullets were fired, Secret Service “leader” Roy Kellerman, who sat in the right-front passenger seat of JFK’s limo did absolutely nothing—in contrast to agent Rufus Youngblood, who threw himself over VP Johnson immediately after the first shots. Youngblood never moved from his seat. Meanwhile, limo driver agent Will Greer, upon hearing the shots AND the cries from Gov. Connelly—“My G-d, they’re going to kill us all”—actually turned around to see what was happening. Upon seeing the blood on Gov. Connelly and JFK’s arms lifted toward his neck, in those critical seconds, Greer “responded” by putting his foot on the brake as he brought the limo to a virtual stop so that he could get a closer look—thereby giving the assassins a much easier shot. Greer continued to gaze at JFK until the fatal shot struck JFK’s right-front temple. Then, he turned forward again, and stepped on the gas pedal, taking off for Parkland Hospital. All of this was captured for posterity on the Zapruder film. None of the Secret Service agents were reprimanded that day, let alone fired.

Ralph Adamo on October 2, 2014 at 3:19 pm

Sorry, meant Kellerman never moved from his seat–not Youngblood. Youngblood did his job that day. Secret Service “Leader” Kellerman did not. But Johnson later rewarded Kellerman for his “good work” that day.

Ralph Adamo on October 2, 2014 at 3:23 pm

If this PC hire’s incompetence had cost the President’s life; would Hillary have been available to give us the “What difference does it make??!” answer to questions about PC incompetence neutering the SS?

PitandPen on October 2, 2014 at 3:50 pm

Remarkable! Its in fact awesome article, I have got much clear idea about from this paragraph.

renuvacell on October 2, 2014 at 5:18 pm

    What’s with the robotic superficially positive comments here? Is this why it’s increasingly challenging to post our remarks? Is China hacking you Debbie? It seems those loser alphabet soup morons in D.C. are too incompetent to protect the President, let alone your website.

    nadie on October 3, 2014 at 11:43 am

Everything in this is country is cluster-f*cked… from the people who run it to things that are poorly executed or not undertaken at all.

No one notices the Emperor Is Naked. Secret Service Chief Pierson’s resignation is the tip of a vast problem. We like to boast we have things well in hand.

In truth, from the White House to Wall Street to Main Street, we are stumbling in the dark.

NormanF on October 2, 2014 at 6:15 pm

    I think America’s debt now exceeds its GDP so yes America is sinking fast but on the other hand Obama is a one man crisis army.
    Every manufactured and inadvertent crisis his regime creates doesn’t have to go to waste. People in his administration aren’t the only ones who can exploit them. They might even give the American people at reality jolt at some point.
    Anything is possible.

    japple on October 4, 2014 at 4:02 am

Reminds me of a Border Patrol supervisor, back in the day. She kept her lipstick wedged against the weapon in her holster, yet wondered why the men all ignored her. One guy complained to HER supervisor about it, but the supervisor was scared about getting himself into some sexual harassment lawsuit so the issue was ignored. These are the kinds of things that nobody sees in HQ.

#1 Vato on October 5, 2014 at 2:28 pm

Secret Service is part of the Homeland Security Department, which also houses HSI, see a pattern here? At Least the SS remained intact and not destroyed like Customs was. INS was a winner hands down, receiving GS upgrades and pay increase without doing any of the investigative work, just processing and other INS BS clerk work. Yeah I know, “get over it”, easy for some to say that never investigated anything except gossiping about other agents. Familiar pattern here: Look nice and spiffy in suits, get GS-13 and above pay without doing anything resembling GS-13 and above work, conduct “investigations” from the comfort and safety of a climate controlled cubicle, expect, nay, demand promotion to supervisor after 5 years on the job, no English required.
What do you get? Well, HSI for one, and looks like SS as well. And the future is guaranteed to be just as bad, or worse, as the incompetent, legends in their own minds, clowns advance.
Yes, there is no sanity clause. Where is J-No when you need her?
