Looks like there were 2 uninvited guests last night at the Obamas party, much to the chagrin of the Secret Service, I'm sure...

Serious cojones are needed for crashing a White House State dinner. Serious cojones!

My crystal ball sees tax audits, watch lists, bank account problems, and many more weird incidents happening to this couple.

I must applaud them for succeeding in what many wouldn't even dare try.

Another link to this story, haven't had a chance to look at their "facebook" page yet, guess they better check out the laws regarding false statements alledgedly made to federal officials, could be in some hot water perhaps, for this stunt...although it's a good one

By the way, can you get onto a reality show by crashing Chavez and I'manutjob's dinner in Venezuela... Just curious

Hey, the White House is the house of the people isnt it?
What else is there to do in DC, anyway?
Good for them. I wonder if they got to have any hors d' ouvres? I would have gone just for the collards.

I wonder.. well no, I know what would happen if the average person that wasn't part of the elite showed up and tried to bump elbows with our political figures... they would most likely at the very lightest offense, be escorted off the property.

Our people voted in to represent us and lead us through this life have snubbed us. They become rich and feel as a celebrity might, RSVP and all for very socialite events, and we; who choose them to help us... get tossed onto the sidewalk ... unless we can afford to melt in with them....

I think it would be very interesting (leading to a point from my babble I think) that if they held a banquet to cater everyone *lets keep this realistic* in a large city or small city ish and jump around town to town throughout the US of A and actually meet everyone (though it can impose a high risk on their lives at some point, especially now) then maybe, just maybe we can stay fooled long enough to like them as we "fall from grace". Sorry but I can't get the movie Idiocracy out of my head.

Meh, ok, I apologize.. if my number tanks I won't post on this thread ever again.

This was proly a strong arm warning to Obama. Think about it. How could an unknown couple get in with the kind of security the Secret Service has.

The call was made by those who really wield the power in the US, and this was a warning or perhaps a veiled threat that "we can get close to you anytime".

Drat my analytical conspiratorial mind, tis a curse not easily undone.

This is very disconcerting.

What message does this send about the abilities and loyalty of the secret service?

Wow! I get up this morning, and this is all over the MSM, as well as several threads deep here, guess it was quite the fubar by the ol'secretive servicio eh?

Looks like they got to meet potus after all... who knew

It seems the media is more focused on offers of reality TV shows downplaying the obvious lack of security at the White House. Just the same old crap from the msm I guess. Maybe on their show they can breech security at different government installations every week. Kind of a where's waldo test of security.

Whether this couple intended to test White House security the fact remains it was tested for all to see and failed miserably. I don't want foreign dignitaries so casually left open to assassination on our watch.

They must be glad it was not to bush, otherwise they would be in gitmo or something now.

I think they did this to show the secret service are lacking, and they are pretending to people out there.

I think the news story is a con, forget it, and nobody should take any heed of this story, ignore it forever.

I think there is something very strange about this incident and the way it's being handled. Reminds me of the Air Force One flyover of NYC. something outrageous happens. explanation is "someone screwed up". somebody is fired or in this case three people put on leave. internal investigation that will say somebody screwed up and that it will never happen again. end of story. how many times is the white house going to be allowed to use this lame tactic?

1. the couple got in without an invitation
2. they claim they were invited, that nobody would behave so badly, that this has "destroyed their lives", but can't produce an invitation.
did one or more secret service agents think that just this once an invitation wasn't required? I find that very hard to believe. even a pretty blond in a perky red dress would be stopped at the perimeter. it's their JOB. don't they turn away people all day long who don't have permission to enter? why on earth would they suddenly let someone through.

did someone from the white house give the OK to let them through, but now doesn't want to admit it? most probable this is the case. apparently the social secretary knows something about it because she is being "protected" from testifying because of the separation of powers. we are supposed to believe that it's a national security matter that she talk about why she chose not to have staff present at the dinner? oh please. had such a staff person been present, that person would now be taking the fall for this.

as usual gibbs is dismissing this as unimportant. and the president and first lady are "angered" by the incident, just like they were about the flyover.

something doesn't add up.

can't help but go back to this picture. some people will say it's a coincidence, but these reality tv folk run in the same circles.

June 2005 photo from Polo Contacts Worldwide shows the Salahis with Obama at a pre-event to America’s Polo Cup. Others in the photo include American Idol’s Randy Jackson and members of the rock group Black Eyed Peas.

"Tareq Salahi served on the board of the American Task Force for Palestine, where Columbia University Professor Khalidi served as vice president. The American Power blog noticed both Salahi’s and Khalidi’s names have been scrubbed from the Task Force website, although Salahi’s bio still comes up on a Google cache search of the site."


obama is a long time friend of khalid also. was that the connection that got them waved through? did jarrett or some other of obama's chicago cronies know these people through khalidi?

we of course will never know either what happened or why it happened. it's not a big deal, after all. yes it's the principle of the thing but if there is one thing the obama administration is good at, it's brushing aside as unimportant the things they refuse to talk about.

This is what I believe actually happened. I tell people the only way this guy will get his scalp parted is if his controllers give the green flag and step away from him. The only thing he can do is ask, "who high?" when they tell him to jump.

which handler gave the order to the secret service to let them through? a cabinet member? seems like it would have to be someone within the administration for them to accept it. it might well have been a warning to obama that he isn't safe anywhere. if we could just find out who facilitated it, we'd know a lot!

This had to be someone extremely high up the ladder, I’m talking people higher then Bush Sr and Cheney. The command came from up top and trickled down to those who are the “enforcers” of their policy.

a cabinet member?

They probably told the secret service what to do, but the command came from someone much higher then those in his cabinet.

seems like it would have to be someone within the administration for them to accept it.

Exactly and it came from up top. The puppet has either been mouthing off, refusing to take orders or sticking his nose where they don’t want it. This incident was a clear message to him, his family and all of America, but the general public is too stupid to accept it for what it is.

it might well have been a warning to obama that he isn't safe anywhere. if we could just find out who facilitated it, we'd know a lot!

It’s a message to Obama and every citizen in the United States. You’ll never find out who exactly ordered this, but make no mistake, this had to come from the highest level of authority, whoever, or whatever, that may be.

The Obama administration has found a way to piss off a lot of people, and especially some in government agencies.

You think the party crashers are and were what the MSM are portraying it to be?

It was a warning.

Kennedy pissed off the same people too, and he didn't last long either.

Obama should consider hiring his own private security for the rest of his term. Because the next time there is an intentional lapse in security it could end badly for him.

obama pretty much has his own security. has for a long time-- those chicago thugs he with whom he surrounds himself. I don't particularly believe in the all powerful higher up who pulls the strings. i can't see any evidence of master plan in what's going on. it's easier to bring a country crashing down that it is to build it up. but that's not the point here. I think we agree that this incident is more than it seems to be.

Don't blame the party crashers. This should be a HUGE wake up call for White House security, and someone or a group of someones should lose their job for this and there should be immediate policy changes to make sure this doesn't happen again.
