President Obama wasn’t present when part of the White House was evacuated after the Secret Service spotted an intruder running on the grounds.


Obama had just left aboard the Marine One helicopter for Camp David, the presidential retreat in nearby Maryland, when armed, uniformed Secret Service personnel ordered the press corps and members of the White House staff to evacuate.

    Intruder? Maybe it was an ET dropping by for a WH tour or a friendly chat? Good grief the paranoia is so out there!

    Thank God the President was safe. The intruder made it all the way into the building, what if he had been wearing a suicide bomb vest? What if this had been an actual coordinated attack with multiple intruders with bombs? An attack on the whitehouse even if the president were not there or injured would be a massive victory for terrorists.

      Well said. So you’re for reversing tea party’s across the board sequester budget cuts to Secret Service, Milt, etc? Vs Congress deleting the specific outdated programs including weapons systems the Pentagon repeatedly testified it doesn’t need or want e.g. Abrams Tank, 3rd type of F-16 motors, etc?

      Most don’t know the Secret Service staff is reduced when the POTUS isn’t at the White House. But the perimeter sensors remain including detectors for seismic, audio, video imaging motion systems, thermo neutron analysis explosive detectors, guns, high energy weaponized deterrents, etc.

        Sorry, The sequester was Obama’s idea

          Both the White House and Congress, Democrats and Republicans, signed off on the agreement leading to the sequester.

            Wait the whitehouse and congress? but just a minute ago you blamed the teaparty? A group that is not even a political party and controls ZERO branches of the US government.

            Who was stupid enough to hold our nations credit rating hostage in ignorance of ‘the public debt shall not be questioned’-14th amendment? The Teat Party!

            Now it’s the “Teaparty GOP” ? Sorry but I have never seen that political party listed on any ballot. Which story are you going to stick with? Are you sure it wasn’t Bigfoot riding a unicorn?

          • Obewon September 21st, 2014 at 1:09 pm

            You’re a fool trying to deny the Tea Party Caucus wing of the GOP. Where are they now? Allen West? Gone! Bachmann Gone January 4th! Your tea party terrorists imploded after the August 2011 Credit rating attack.

    “Mentally unstable” non threatening Texan Omar J. Gonzales, 42, of Copperas Cove, Texas, hopped over the north White House fence line near Pennsylvania Avenue about 7:20 p.m. Friday, setting off a standard security alarm indicating a breach of the perimeter. Officers demanded that he stop, but he did not respond, and they were unable to reach him on foot before he got inside the unlocked front doors of the presidential mansion. A guard stationed at the door subdued him. Officers at the scene considered Gonzales to be unarmed and likely mentally disturbed, a law enforcement official familiar with the incident said. He had no package or backpack or bulky clothing, an indicator of having a possible bomb, so he was not viewed as someone the officers would have to shoot.

    Today a teaclown was also arrested for trespassing after pulling his car into a White House access gate at 15th and E streets and refusing to leave, according to a Secret Service official.
