“The great rule of conduct for us, in regard to foreign nations, is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible.  … it is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.” -- George Washington Farewell Address

(SQAUK) — The U.S. Secret Service’s recent diversity initiative, spearheaded by Director Kimberly Cheatle, aimed to achieve a 30% diversity hire rate and boost the representation of women within its ranks. However, this initiative has sparked controversy, particularly in the aftermath of the attempted assassination of former President Donald Trump. The initiative came under scrutiny when female agents, part of the diversity push, reportedly failed to protect Trump from an unexpected incident at a rally in Pennsylvania, leading to intense criticism. The recent report by The Daily Signal emphasized the need for increased diversity within the Secret Service to reflect the nation’s demographics. Cheatle, the first female director of the Secret Service, has been a strong proponent of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives. She believes that a diverse workforce enhances the agency’s effectiveness, but critics argue that this focus on diversity may compromise operational effectiveness. At the Pennsylvania rally, the situation took a dramatic turn when an individual breached the security perimeter and fired shots at the former president from an elevated position just 400 feet away from the podium. Eyewitnesses described a chaotic scene where female agents appeared uncoordinated and overwhelmed, raising serious concerns about their training and preparedness. This incident has sparked a heated debate about whether the agency’s commitment to diversity detracted from its primary mission of protecting the nation’s leaders, underscoring the urgent need for a balanced approach to diversity and operational excellence within security agencies.

(SQAUK) — A former elite sniper from Canada’s Joint Task Force 2 (JTF2) has alleged that the individual who tried to assassinate Donald Trump was aided by someone with insider knowledge to reach a high rooftop position. Dallas Alexandr, a renowned precision shooter, suggested that the intricate nature of the operation indicates the involvement of highly skilled personnel. According to Alexandr, the shooter’s ability to access the rooftop undetected and establish a sniper’s nest with precision indicates a level of knowledge and skill unlikely to be possessed by an unassisted civilian. “I am very familiar with the layout, these types of things, and what the job should be,” he said in a recent social media post. “Yesterday, what happened? I do not doubt that the shooter had help from somewhere within an agency, organization, or the government.”
