Dave Leiber, the reporter from the Dallas Morning News, gave an interview this morning on the channel 5 local station regarding the suit and my efforts to get reimbursed for my attorney fees.




The following e-mail has been sent this morning to the House Oversight Committee in hopes that the recently produced documents will help make government accountable.


In December of 2015 you issued the report  An Agency in Crisis.  

In January of 2016 you issued a reort FOIA is Broken.
I have had a FOIA case pending in Federal Court in Dallas for over a year, trying to get documents from the Secret Service,OIG,and DHS.  The Dallas Morning News featured an article regarding the suit and the thousands of pages of documents that have finally been produced.
Radar Online has featured these two stories highlighting the outrageous behavior reported in the documents.
I have attached summaries of excerpts from some of the more outrageous Secret Service behavior reference in the documents produced.
The acts of the Secret Service have made headlines.  However the more offensive things to me are the culture of corruption associated with (1) the lies told to me by AT Smith to prevent me from getting the documents, (2) the fact that Multiple USSS and OIG employees committed crimes and perjured themselves and are now getting paid retirement benefits, the extent of which DHS, OIG, and the Secret Service won’t tell me (3) at every turn the AJ has engaged in coercive behavior in the lawsuit including a claim against me for reimbursement of the government’s attorney fees in the case filed three years after they were supposed to produce documents to me by law within 20 days,  and (4) these documents reveal that the Secret Service required their agents to sign non-disclosure agreements, expressly stating that they would not report anything adverse to DHS, but the Secret Service has failed to produce one of htese non-disclosure agreements!!!
This post to my blog summarizes the corruption, the cover-up, and the coercive behavior.  
Congress need to hold the Secret Service accountable.
I have also copied John Cornyn, one of my Senators, on the e-mail.  I will advise you if anyone in the government responds.

Friday the Dallas Morning News online featured an article on the outrageous documents uncovered in my 4 year long fight with the FOIA office.  The article appeared this morning in the actual Sunday edition of the DMN.  The placement was impressive as it was highlighted on the cover of the “Metro and State” section of the paper.  A quick check of the internet indicates the story has been picked up on 48  different web sites, including Drudge, boingboing, and reddit.  I am so appreciative of the help of Dave Lieber, the watchdog for the DMN,  and Marina Martinez for the time they devoted to making people aware of this outrage.
Thanking Dave for the article, I learned from Dave that the article had already been viewed over 170 thousand times as of yesterday, which is the largest viewership for a single article he has published this year.  This is the power of the national media that I could never achieve as a blogger.  Surely this is an  indication that there is a sufficient indication of “public interest” in obtaining these records.

Dan Patrick is an example of all that is wrong with America.  As a representative of the State of Texas, he gave this interview:


“Too many in the general public who aren’t criminals but have a big mouth are creating situations like we saw last night,” an emotional Patrick said during an interview with Fox News on Friday. He later added, “All those protesters last night, they ran the other way expecting the men and women in blue to turn around and protect them—what hypocrites!”

“I do blame people on social media with their hatred toward police,” he said. While pointing out that last night’s Dallas protest was peaceful, Patrick said, “I do blame former Black Lives Matter protests.”

 Dale Hansen had a different thought:

It is precisely because Black Men were killed by representatives of law and order that there was a need for a protest and organization called “Black Lives Matter.”  Because Dan Patrick is speaking as a representative of the State of Texas, he exacerbates the tragedy.  Patrick is an example of all that is wrong with our government.

For the last 6 years I have covered Sarah Palin.  I have written about her stupidity and her vulgar comments.  I have covered her violations of the law.  I have written about the hypocrisy of her attitudes about abstinence, while her children spawned at least four babies out of wedlock.  I have covered the Palin family brawl, and Track’s domestic violence.  Who could forget her love of guns and constant promotion of the Phrase: “Don’t Retreat, Reload”.  I have covered her response to the shooting of Gabby Giffords and the Sandy Lake shooting.  However nothing Palin has done in the past compares to the offensiveness of her new Facebook post claiming that BlackLivesMatter‬ is a Farce.

It was NOT Black Lives Matter that killed Dallas Police Officers.  It was a lone gunman with an assault weapon.

Dallas Police Chief David O. Brown said Johnson told negotiators before he was killed that he was acting alone and was unaffiliated with any group.  Moreover   is a group that advocates dignity, justice and freedom. Not murder.

The shooter was a member of the military.  We don’t say that the military is a Farce.  Nobody has suggested that the military advocates the senseless killing of police officers. A disproportionate number of African Americans serve in the military (17.8%).  Blacks represent 13.2% of the people in America.  How often have we heard Sarah Palin say “thank a vet”.

The shooter in Dallas, Micah Xavier Johnson, was sent home by the Army after being accused of sexual harassment by a female soldier.   The Army discharged  him other than honorably, due to the incident.  The victim indicated Johnson needed mental help.  She sought a  protective order to keep him away from her and her family.

  The shooting of police officers in Dallas is a tragedy for Dallas, and the country.  It is tragic that Blacks feel a need to protest because police officers from around the country have been caught executing unarmed black men who posed no threat to the officers.  Here are just a few videos that have been posted on You Tube.  Remember these were the incidents that we caught on video.  There are probably hundreds of incidents that were not recorded, but resulted in brutality or death.


The Dallas Police Chief describes the tragedy for Dallas, Police, the Black Community, and America.


For Sarah Palin to minimize this tragedy is unforgivable!  Both police and Blacks feel unsafe.  America is in crisis.  Police Officers are fearful that they will be killed for the inexcusable conduct of other police.  Blacks are fearful that they will be killed because of the pigment of their skin.  Simply the phrase “Black Lives Matter” is an indication of the problem.  To suggest that the problem is a “farce” puts Sarah Palin into the category of a White Supremacist.

Because she has such a following, her hateful comments exacerbate the pain the country is experiencing.  From this point forward, I encourage everyone reading, to refuse to watch any television show Sarah Palin may appear on.  Refuse to associate with any political party who gives her a microphone.  Any publisher who published one of her books should never be supported with your dollars.  Sarah Palin deserves to be marooned on a deserted island, surrounded by sharks,  where she is unable to speak to another human being, ever again.
