Secret Service Agent Who Called Trump a ‘Disaster’ Remains Unpunished

The senior Secret Service agent who publicly stated that she would not take “a bullet” for US President Donald Trump was not disciplined for her comments, according to sources within the Secret Service community.

Kerry O'Grady, the agent in question, wrote on Facebook in October 2016 that she "would take jail time over a bullet or an endorsement for [Trump, who] I believe to be a disaster to this country and the strong and amazing women and minorities who reside here."

On Inauguration Day, she also changed her Facebook profile picture to a drawing of Princess Leia from Star Wars with the caption, "A woman's place is in the resistance." 

"The Resistance" is a name commonly used by anti-Trump groups online.

O'Grady was accused of violating the Hatch Act of 1939, which forbids certain federal employees (including the Secret Service) from engaging in partisan political activity. 

She was removed from her position as the head of the Secret Service's Denver branch and placed under paid administrative leave while allegations of misconduct were investigated. 

She has retained her security clearance six months into the investigation.

Several attorneys have expressed concern that O'Grady is being let off easy, having avoided the harsh measures imposed by the Secret Service on others being disciplined. 

Her being placed on paid leave, for instance, is unusual: the Secret Service typically places employees accused of wrongdoing on unpaid leave instead, according to Sean Bigley, a partner at security-clearance firm Bigley Ranish.

"All the clients I have are on unpaid administrative leave," he told the Washington Free Beacon. 

"Then they have to sit around for a year cooling their heels before anything is proven. It's very punitive."

He described one client of his who has been under investigation, sitting at home on unpaid leave, for three years. 

"His life has completely imploded," Bigley said of the client, who has lost his home and life savings as he awaits a resolution. 

He can't even seek work outside of the agency without placing his pension in jeopardy, according to Bigley.

O'Grady has not lost her security clearance either, which is often revoked for offenses more minor than hers. 

"It's always amazing to me how some [disciplinary] issues are considered security-related and some aren't," Bigley said, adding that well-connected agents often dodge the worst of disciplinary measures.

According to Cheri Cannon, a partner at the law firm Tully Rinckey, federal law enforcement agencies revoke security clearances for "having an affair in the workplace, mishandling personal finances, misusing the computer or government equipment, doing dumb things like making threats, lying during investigations."

"If somebody wants to mess with your clearance, you are going to have to fight them for two years without pay," she said.

It goes on. A complaint about O'Grady's Facebook post was officially filed in October shortly after she posted it, but the probe didn't begin until late January — and only after a Washington Examiner expose on the case. 

She has not been placed on the "Do Not Admit" list that would deny her access to Secret Service offices or resources, a punishment levied at agents who have committed lesser offenses than hers.

Although numerous critics called for O'Grady to be fired, such a process would take months or even years due to the numerous layers of job protection availed to federal employees. 

But considering how easily she has gotten off thus far, several sources within the agency are worried that O'Grady will simply be transferred to another division of the Department of Homeland Security and never face real punishment.

ایران فرمان قتل : دستور استفاده از سلاح گرم در برخورد با معترضان

سندی که در تصویر میبینید دستور فرمانده نیروی سرکوبگر انتظامی تهران به همه یگانهای مستقر در این شهر است.
بر اساس این دستور کار ، مزدوران حکومت فاسد نظام جمهوری اسلامی اجازه یافته اند که درصورت بروز هرگونه جنبش اعتراضی از سوی مردم علیه رژیم ، از سلاح گرم استفاده کنند.
این دستور یک فرمان قتل است.
نیروی سرکوبگر انتظامی که به ظاهر و تعریف شناخته شده پلیس در سراسر جهان ، میبایست حافظ جان شهروندان باشد ، با آزاد گذاشتن دست مزدوران چکمه پوش خود انها را مجاز به قتل ایرانیان معترض به فسادهای موجود درلایه های حکومت میکنند و این پیام مهم را در خود دارد که اگر در اعتراض به  فساد و شکنجه و کشتار به خیابانها بریزید شما را خواهیم کشت.
چرا که به گفته خمینی دجال، حفظ نظام از اوجب واجبات است.
حکومت فاسدی که انقدر وقیح هست که میلیاردها دلار از خزانه ملی و سرمایه مردمی را صرف سرکوب مردم خود و کشورهای منطقه میکند باید سرنگون کرد.
اکنون چهل سال است که کشور ما به اشغال این ملایان جنایکتارخونخوار و اسلام تحمیلی در آمده است .

مائده مختار زاده یکی از اعضاء فعال گروهک تروریستی سازمان مجاهدین خلق در ایران_قسمت 1

گزارش شماره یک درباره یکی از خائنین به ملت ایران
 همانطور که ملت بزرگ و شریف ایران زمین میدانند یکی از خطرناک ترین و فاسدترین گروه های تروریستی که سالیان سال در سطح جهان وایران به فعالیتهای غیر انسانی و جنایتکارانه مبادرت می ورزند و با افکار و عقاید بیمارگونه خود جانهای جوانان ایران زمین را می آلایند، گروهک تروریستی مجاهدین خلق می باشد.
جنایات آنان طی سالیان گذشته بر همگان آشکار بوده و چه خانواده هایی که فرزندان عزیز خود را که توسط اعضای این گروه شستشوی مغزی داده شدند ، از دست داده اند و دیگرانی که طعمه شکارچیان بی رحم این گروه تروریستی قرار گرفته اند.
اما خانواده هایی هستند که همچنان نسل اندر نسل به این سازمان تروریستی وفادارند و ایدئولوژی جنایتکارانه خود را به فرزندشان منتقل می کنند و همچنان در داخل و خارج ایران به ترویج افکار مسموم آنها و همچنین فعالیتهای تروریستی مشغول می باشند.
در اینجا به معرفی یکی از این خانواده ها و تشریح فعالیتهای آنها از سالهای آغازین انقلاب ایران تا کنون  خواهیم پرداخت:
مصطفی و جعفر مهیمنی و یکی از خواهرانشان مرضیه مهیمنی ساکن شهرستان بابل در استان مازندران در س…
