Former White House Secret Service Officer discusses Clinton “Circus”
While traveling back home from a conference in Atlanta, I had a chance to read the new book Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate by Gary Byrne.
Byrne’s book is a gripping read, as he conveys his personal history to join the Secret Service, his time at the White House, and his decision to join the Federal Air Marshals Service. However, it is not an easy read, as it is difficult to learn of how the Clintons and other elite politicos disdainfully treated patriotic Americans such a Byrne, who want only to serve their country.
The author has already discussed his book on numerous venues (but notably not on mainstream media outlets), and has focused on his troubling experiences with Hillary Clinton during the interview. He was inspired to write this history because Clinton is poised to be President, and Byrne describes her as “divisive, abuse, and paranoid.”
However, I would like to share a bit related to the chapter entitled “The Vase.” One morning in 1995, the White House staff was treated to a reverberating verbal battle between the Clintons. The row then evolved into something more physical. After a resounding crash, the Secret Service agents were obliged to investigate the source of the sound.
Byrne discovered the shattered remains of a historic vase packed away in the curator’s office. He also noted that Bill Clinton came in the next day with a big black eye not well hidden by makeup. When Byrne commented about Clinton’s bruise to the president’s personal secretary Bettie Curie, she dismissed it as a coffee allergy.
So, the Secret Service officers had to figure out what to do when the President’s wife posed a physical threat to the President.
Here are three mental exercises I would propose that Legal Insurrection readers put to those they know who are voting for Hillary Clinton:
How would you suggest Secret Service officers handle a President who is a physical threat to those around her?
If this is how Clinton treats her husband, how will she treat the rest of us? If this is the regard she shows the historic treasures of our nation as First Lady, why should we trust her as President?
How would the mainstream media be covering this episode, if the story involved Donald Trump throwing a vase and striking Melania?
The remainder of the book describes Byrne’s entry into the Federal Air Marshals Service. In a way, this portion of the book is even more disturbing that the White House chapters. The author describes how educated, elite bureaucrats undermine the mission of the Air Marshals with politically correct rules and dismissive attitude when challenged by those who actually have to carry out the missions.
I recommend Crisis of Character for its clear writing and descriptions of life for a patriotic American genuinely interested in public service among the political glitterati. Though Byrne had the help of another writer (Grant M. Schmidt), I would like to commend him (as he suffers from dyslexia) for creating such an engaging read.
Bravo, sir. And thank your for your service to our nation.
Byrne gives us a front seat to the “Clinton Circus.” When Americans vote this November, they will have to decide if they want this circus to come back to town.

“They wanted to do further scanning; she was reluctant. She didn’t understand what they were about to do,” her mother Shirley Cohen told WREG.
JOHN KERN, SAUK RAPIDS12:37 p.m. CDT June 28, 2016
The June 22 letter “Emmer’s endorsement stands strong,” by Walter Hudson, is a misleading and inaccurate smear of U.S. House of Representatives candidate AJ Kern and her supporters.
Hudson also posted on Facebook, accusing Sen. John Pederson of lying in regard to a signed statement from Pederson validating our protest surrounding the 6th District endorsing convention.
The AJ Kern campaign has officially protested the GOP endorsement of Rep. Tom Emmer because:
1) Late-arriving unregistered delegates were seated improperly on the convention floor, replacing Kern supporters.
2) Concerns were raised to Senate District 14 and District 6 chairs during the convention; they were stonewalled.
3) Our campaign was physically precluded from oversight of counting ballots.
4) The requisite passage of a motion to endorse never happened.
Chairman Keith Downey’s only response was a directive “to All Party and BPOU Officers” …. “there is no option for BPOU and CD officers to hold their office while maintaining support for the Kearn [Kern] candidacy or providing her or her team access to party resources or appearances at party events.”
Not just procedural issues; after supporters were bumped, AJ was within 11 delegates of forestalling the endorsement.
Citing no examples, Hudson, who played a starring role in Emmer’s convention infomercial, claimed we denigrated Emmer and his supporters.
In reality, our campaign strictly avoided personal issues and challenged Emmer’s voting record on education, trade and refugee resettlement, topics on which AJ has written extensively.
Admittedly, party insiders were unhappy with our educating inexperienced precinct delegates (of which there were many) on how to beat slick (albeit within rules) electioneering tactics. These tactics traditionally help party insiders vote each other to district conventions year after year, minimizing participation by grass roots supporters.
Hudson’s baseless negative campaigning — albeit at arms’ length of the Emmer campaign — is an encouraging sign for AJ Kern.
Vote for AJ in the Aug. 9 primary.

A former investigator with Chicago’s Independent Police Review Authority has filed a lawsuit claiming that he was fired for refusing to produce false reports regarding officers accused of misconduct.
Lorenzo Davis began working with Chicago’s Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA) in 2008 as an investigator after 23 years with the Chicago Police Department. By July 2010, he was promoted to supervising investigator before moving up to deputy chief administrator in October 2011 and finally, chief administrator in February 2014.
As his boss, Davis says, “Ando began ordering plaintiff to change his sustained findings of police misconduct … in favor of the accused officers.”
He claims that Ando and Mitchell told him “to change the content of his investigative reports to more favorably reflect upon the accused officers’ conduct or to discredit the victim or witnesses.”
He wasn’t the only one, Davis says: “Ando and Mitchell also ordered other IPRA investigators to change the contents of their investigative reports and change their ultimate findings from sustained to not sustained, unfounded or exonerated.”
The IPRA was originally formed in 2007 to investigate other accusations of police corruption and misconduct. Unfortunately, the agency has itself been the subject of misconduct and corruption. In fact, in December 2015, Ando resigned from his position as head of the IPRA just as it was announced that the U.S. Department of Justice would begin an investigation into the CPD. The IPRA’s reputation has become so tarnished that in early April, the editorial board of The Chicago Tribune wrote, “the IPRA and its reputation are beyond repair. The way forward is clear: Blow it up. Start over.”
Only weeks ago Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced plans to completely end the IPRA in favor of a “new civilian investigative agency that has more independence and more resources to do its work.” Emanuel’s plan mimics a report from the Police Accountability Task Force, organized by Emanuel after the death of Laquan McDonald, which calls for the creation of a new review board. According to the Better Government Association, between 2010 and 2014 Chicago police shot 240 people, killing 70.
Both the Chicago Police Department and the IPRA are under fire for corruption, abuse, and possible criminal behavior. At this point the idea that the Mayor (another representative of the establishment) could realistically root out the poison that seems to infected the core of the Chicago Police Department is preposterous. All of these bureaucracies exist to sustain themselves and to subvert the will of the people. This is because these institutions are dependent on the people for funding (stolen via taxation) and ultimately serve the will of the State.
Imagine what would happen if our communities started organizing against these violent criminals and peacefully prevented the murder of our people? It’s time to start having those conversations.
