Press Release

No, Fox News did not report Trump and Carson have Secret Service protection. We were right.

Cowger Nation has been accused of inaccuracy, so I would just like to clear a few things up.

We recently published an article titled, “Secret Service will not give Donald Trump protection… for now.” For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, “for now,” that means at this present time.

The Washington Post released an article yesterday, October 21, 2015, criticizing Fox News for a misleading headline posted on their website titled, “Secret Service protection activated for Trump, Carson.” The Fox News article, written by Ed Henry, was posted on October 19, 2015.

By activated, Henry meant that the review process had begun for Trump and Carson’s requests for Secret Service protection. The process has begun; they presently do not have it.

This is why it is important to read the articles and not just the headlines.

To clarify: Trump has not yet received protection, and Carson has not yet received protection, because their requests are still being reviewed. The requests for protection have been submitted, but they have not been authorized.

They were sent to a Congressional Advisory Committee, which determines if Trump and Carson meet the criteria. It then goes back to the Department of Homeland Security Secretary for confirmation.

It has not even been approved by the Congressional Advisory Committee yet, therefore, he doesn’t have Secret Service protection at this present time.

According to SecretService.gov, which is the Secret Service’s official website, it states the following:

Title 18 U.S.C.’ 3056(a)(7) authorizes the U.S. Secret Service to provide protection for major presidential and vice presidential candidates:

  • Protection is authorized by the DHS Secretary after consultation with the Congressional Advisory Committee
  • The Congressional Advisory Committee includes: Speaker of the House, House Minority Leader, Senate Majority Leader, Senate Minority Leader, and one additional member selected by the others

Criteria have been established to assist the DHS Secretary and the advisory committee in their decision making (as of 2008). Candidates must:

  • Be publically announced
  • Have some degree of prominence as shown by opinion polls
  • Be actively campaigning and entered in at least 10 state primaries
  • Be seeking the nomination of a qualified party
  • Have qualified for matching funds in the amount of at least $100,000
  • Have received contributions totaling $10 million

Trump has not received contributions totaling to at least $10 million, because he is personally funding his campaign. He has only raised a little over $3.9 million. This could be used to deny Trump’s request that has not been verified yet.

For our regular readers, please forgive the redundancy in our article, but we take claims of inaccuracy very seriously.

      The cable news commentators skew things, fill in the blanks, use sound bytes and out right lie. Juan Williams the other night was saying the Republicans started the rumor that Benghazi was started by a video. And he gets paid big bucks to lie or be stupid…you pick? If you’ve ever read the Daily Beast, that is all messed up. I, like you want to make sure my claim is true, but, I also refuse to be responsible for jumping through hoops for the uninformed. When wrong, I fix it. When not, I don’t. Good for you for standing by your truth and not letting a cackling hen stomp your golden eggs!

Washington D.C. – The rain was held back and only a light drizzle fell upon a group of patriotic Americans gathered peacefully in front of our nation’s Capitol building, who came to demonstrate their love of country, support the ongoing restoration of the Constitutional Republic, express support for the nation’s military and police, show pride in the USA, and support President Donald J. Trump.

Noted speakers included Congressman Clay Higgins – LA 3rd District, Mrs. Jeannette Finicum – the widow of LaVoy Finicum, Jan Morgan – the first lady of the Second Amendment,  Jonathan Gilliam – former Navy SEAL, Chris Cox – founder of Bikers for Trump, Massey Campos – founder of Self-Evident Ministry, Karen Anderson – Massachusetts Faith + Freedom Coalition Affiliate President, and many others.

The crowd came from all across America, as far away as the Tufaga-Paty family from Hawaii.

“We came to show our support for this great country and we are proud Americans.”
– So’o Tufaga Jr.

A great day of patriotic love of America was shared by all who attended the rally.
