Which is the bit I'm addressing.

Okay .. that's in a different post. I was looking at the opening post. The opening post gave me the impression this was a discussion about getting security clearances ... not that it is a campaign comercial or something ...

okay, I see what you are referencing. I was addressing the opening post.


The world accepted this when Bush was voted in. Its not a new thing.

No, it's not a new thing. But it SHOULD be 'a thing', don't ya' think?
Shouldn't the POTUS be someone who should be able to get a security clearance - and not just because they are elected?


See where I'm coming from? Its a dead argument.

NOW I see what you are saying.

But if you really want to get technical ... this ENTIRE BOARD is a dead argument. It's just chat and it doesn't change anything, anywhere, about anything.

Anyone who looks at it and says 'this is a reason not to vote for this guy' is being SMART. The REALITY is that it won't make a difference because he'll be appointed a clearance anyways when he's elected (and yes, I think we'll be stuck with him as POTUS). But NOTICING it and understanding the significance of it makes the person smart.

Obama. Kerry. Bush43. Even John Kennedy. (the list goes on). NONE of them should have clearances. Heck.... Kerry and Bush should probably be in jail.

Just a few reasons for NO CLEARANCE -

Kennedy - Drug addiction. Mob ties. Questionable international ties.

Kerry - 'winter soldier'. Lies under oath to congress. Unauthorized meetings and negotiations with the enemy during war time in France.

Bush - Alcoholism (recovering or not, it's still a reason not to give it). Questionable international ties. Here's the biggie - friends with the Hinkleys - the fella' that shot Reagan!!!

Obama - Past drug addiction. Mob ties. Long time friends and associates who are convicted criminals (Rezko for one). Questionable international travel. TRi-COUNTRY citizenship USA/Kenya/Indonesia. Close family members as well as other family members living overseas in Kenya. At least one cousin is a radical islamic extremist. Documented lies about those family members and his associations. Close personal long-term ties with people (Wright and Farrakhan) who travel to Lybia and meet with Kaddafi.

Addressing the OPENING POST .... if any one of us walked into the NSA/FBI/CIA and had any of these things in our background, they'd walk us out the door and tell us to go try McDonalds down the road for employment.

Yes. I see. Your saying that a large amount of the past presidents and all of the current candidates are not worth voting for.

So you think it should be a "none of the above" protest vote then?



Close family members as well as other family members living overseas in Kenya.


This one kinda puzzled me. FF. I work with a guy who has close family members living overseas in Kenya. Is there something I should know about Kenyans?

I'm starting to think so. Soooooooo many of these bozos couldn't get a security clearance in real life, but then they get elected and therefore it's handed to them .... something is wrong there.


Is there something I should know about Kenyans?

No. Not that I know of.

(a looooong time ago) When I worked in the defense industry (I'll U2U ya' with more details if you wish), I worked in corporate security. We processed security clearances. We had to take prints, do some leg work, interview people .. that kind of thing (among other stuff). If someone had relatives living overseas it was of special interest. If someone had multiple relatives living overseas it became more of a special interest. If someone had relatives living oveseas that were known 'radical islamic extremists' (at least one of Obama's cousins is one - and admits it) .... that would definately cause a red flag.

A person wanting a clearance wouldn't want too many 'special interest' items to come up on their application. Split loyalties would come in question. That sort of thing.

Same with duel citizenships - let alone Obama's tri-citizenship.

I'm telling you from my own experience processing these things.
If someone was a drug addict then it got noted on the information.
That very well could hamper someone from getting a clearance.

That was how it was done in the 1980s. It could be different now,
but that's what happened back then.

ANYTHING in your background that could be used for blackmail or could be preyed upon by agents would be a red flag and could hamper you getting a clearance (and rightfully so). Even visits to shrinks were considered special attention items.

I held a Top Secret with the National Security Agency for 6 years and in complete agreement with your statement. No way on this green earth could Obama have a "conflict of interest" with national security unless he had one HELL of a backing from people that it makes no difference what we find out and do, he still will be there. Maybe something to do with "None dare call it conspiracy"?

Kenya itself is not bad, mostly Christians and trying to turn it around. HOWEVER Mr.Obama has chosen not to support those people. He sent $, amde personal appearances with and sent a campaign manager to support a radical islamic candidate who is a part of his tribe the "Luo". When that candidate lost he and his cronies mudered, raped, sodomized, you name it. Mr.Obama then butted in and bullied the Christian winner of the election to "share" the power with the islamic extremist. How does this and the 100's of other islamic, anti-American, radical shady underhanded, illegal actions of Mr.Obama and his associates make him presidential material. Americans need to open their eyes, see the truth before it is too late. He will definitely be our final demise.

nice work.
The Obama threads get more and more useless.
Get something good please.


more and more?

how do you get more and more once your each the threshold of "completely and utterly"


That happened on Feb 8, 2008 at 2:37 p.m.

Any worse?

I say if it gets any worse, the very fabric of the space/time continuum will begin to ingest its self in the belly of the universe and all time, matter, and reason will cease to exist.

Thats the worst case scenario of course.




I crave an actual thread that discusses real issues with Obama.
I havent had one to talk with anyone for a long long time.

I held a Top Secret


top secret what?

"Top secret" is the adjective that describes the unmentioned noun.

is it "so secret" that you cant even tell us what it is?

LOL LOL LOL Andrew...LOL

The topic line here is security clearences...Top Secret is the category of clearance. NSA is the employer.

1+1+1=3

No problem here ..we just have to connect the dots.

I stopped reading half way through this thread. ( Didn't see anyone post what I was thinking anyway )

Okay. So first off ... someone was whining that another poster called Obama President and said the topic was about "Mr. Obama" - lets clear that up as well - its Senator ... he is still considered a senator. ( For whatever that is worth )

Now, as for security clearances. Wouldn't one think that as a senator and sitting on some interesting committees, he'd have SOME clearance ( such as Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and Senate Foreign Relations Committee )

You'd think as senator, he's been cleared by something because of information that may cross his desk at some point in his career?

That may be so..in the case of some senators. However..I am not sure junior senators are cleared in the manner as are more senior senators. Same thing with representatives..versus junior representatives.
A lot of this would depend as to what committees or functions to which one is assigned.

Also take into consideration that the office of President is not the same clearance as a senator or representatives.

What kind of clearance do you think one needs in order to carry the Football?? How about the control cards for the Football??

That doesn't really answer my questions though. He could be a new senator or a Ted Kennedy, he has security clearances, does he not?

The whole argument I was reading was that he couldn't, wouldn't, never in a million years, get clearance. I was attempting to point out that as a senator in general - he has some form of clearances, and from the sounds of at least 2 of his committees, probably some powerful clearances.

So, becoming President, he'd get a trip to the top of the clearance elevator. All I was trying to point out is ( and you mentioned ) is he's a junior senator ( means he's been there a little while ) and has to have some clearance already.

It just seems kinda silly that one could have access to National Security knowledge, but then be denied other "secrets" because of his past.

Negative. Not happening. The President has access to certain secrets after they take the oath of office...but not all the top secret informations. Some of the informations they have no need to know for carrying out the office.
The assumption that the President has access to the top secrets of the country is in error. It is not true. THe President is not cleared for everything.

He may be cleared for some or certain things as a senator..but only what they need to get a job done. Certain senators are cleared for more than others depending on what it is to which they are working...what committees to which they are assigned.

When you go up in security levels...you are again re evaluated as to whether you qualify for this level and access to this material.

The President is a political figurehead of the citizens of the country nothing more. He doesn't "run" the country. He is just a mouth piece for those who do.
I have read posts here that dumped on the Bush's and on the Clinton's,one party against another.
They are all in on it.Heck,Barbara Bush said,"I consider him (Bill Clinton) one of my sons."
Are you all that blind? The only reason Obama has gotten as far as he has, is because those in power(which is totally different than those in charge) have allowed him too. He has not been elected yet.
The important thing is look at who the Vice-President nominees will be after tomorrow. Biden has been bought off by all the corporations that are incorporated in Delaware (all most all of the U.S company's were).
McCain is already in their pocket.
Either one of them will only have access to "need to know information" anyway.
By the way, what the heck is the difference between a security detail assigned to protect a person,and a guard detail assigned to keep a person from escaping?The direction their guns are pointed when the bullets begin flying.

calcoastseeker,

I have thought this for years. That there is actually little difference in the two partys when one peels back the public veneer. Someone is running both groups like a glove with another hand inside it.

However..this statement of yours....

Precisely..I also came to this same conclusion one evening while thinking along rabid trails as I am sometimes wont to do.

It is what "need to know" secrets that the president is entrusted after taking the oath of office ..which are important. Not thier person per se.. but the secrets they do know in order to carry out the office. This is way above the ability in thinking of the average American. They tend to think the standard M1A issue line that the Secret Service is there to protect the presidents body. They are there first to protect the secrets of state.

I have to ask myself, by this line of thought, if the candidates and thier spouses are even aware of this possibility. If so...I dont think that many would be wont to run for the office.

Thanks,
Orangetom
