SS Agents and Prostitutes- Another Case of the Worst Rising to the Top

Austrian economist F.A. Hayek’s most famous work, The Road to Serfdom, is renowned for identifying two general rules in regards to politics and the state.  As the title of the book suggests, Hayek was keenly aware of the massive centralization of power taking place during the World War II era as Keynesianism took off and planned economies seemed like the next, natural step in the art of governing.  He correctly warned that economic intervention begets further intervention which would eventually lead to totalitarianism.

To reinforce this claim, Hayek explained a truth which haunts all those vying for public office.  Because the state, by definition, acts as a monopoly of force and predation, those who seek to brandish its authority don’t always have the most charitable intentions in mind as they clearly prefer an occupation of violence over harmonious enterprise in the private sector.  As Hayek writes:

Advancement within a totalitarian group or party depends largely on a willingness to do immoral things. The principle that the end justifies the means, which in individualist ethics is regarded as the denial of all morals, in collectivist ethics becomes necessarily the supreme rule.

While Hayek wrote on the mindset one needs to be successful in implementing the state’s various decrees, this type of behavior often spills over into otherwise unrelated government activities.  Such delinquency is fostered by the fact that those who operate within the public sector have little regard for the money and privileges designated to them as it is paid for on the backs of taxpayers and not from their own personal funds.  One of these embarrassing (for the ruling class, not those forced to support them) moments came to pass recently in Colombia as a few Secret Service personnel, tasked with preparing a summit venue for a visit by President Obama, were caught both soliciting high end call girls and stiffing them after the deed was done.  From the National Post:

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Secret Service said Wednesday that three employees will leave their jobs over the sex scandal in a hotel in Colombia which tarnished the elite presidential protection agency’s image.

A total of 11 agents and at least 10 military personnel are being investigated over the incident, which reportedly came to light when a prostitute got into a dispute over payment with one of the agents.

The New York Times on Wednesday carried an interview with one of the prostitutes, who said that the affair came to light after an agent offered her $30 for sex after earlier agreeing to pay $750.

By virtue of being a gang of thugs in charge of watching out for one of the biggest bullies in the world, the Secret Service’s reputation has long since been tarnished.  There is something to be said when the leader of a supposedly free and friendly country must employ brutes to shakedown visiting tourists at his “place of residence” and designate areas as “non free speech” zones on whim.

Rather than a small security force, the Secret Service has evolved, like all executive government agencies inevitably do, into something far more sinister.  Not only can it unilaterally revoke the protection of speech guaranteed by the Constitution, but it has proven to be staffed with those inept and feeling entitled enough to waste the public’s dime on seedy shenanigans.

Hayek, while a brilliant mind, was not right on everything.  He saw the welfare state is legitimate, a need for regulation into private industries such as education and food, and the necessity of the state in providing for individual and national defense.  Yet even he was able to distinguish how political power attracts those who will use in the worst manner.

The Secret Service agents who procured prostitutes may be relieved of their duty but it will only serve as a cautionary tale for the rest to keep their off-duty exploits better concealed in the future.  The waste and graft will go on despite a pledge from Obama for a “rigorous” probe and his potential successor’s promise to “clean house.”  These promises are just political theater used to conceal the playground like mentality which possesses the attitudes of all those who wield the guns of the state.

It is an interesting fact that the Libertarian model has never been adopted by any state of significance in modern times, despite the opportunities supplied by democracy. There must be a reason for this since Communism has been adopted countless times. Could it be that the banishment of government is an apriori false notion?

Where I live, there aren't any cockroaches, so I'm not too familiar with their herding habits.  The secret service employs over 6,000 people - this was an instance involving, maybe, 10.  So far, only a couple have been accused of any wrongdoing.

Furthermore, I find it highly hypocritical that James Miller, an outspoken "agent" of libertarianism, would have such qualms with and make such ethical claims against prostitution.  Libertarianism is about individuals having the liberty to do whatever they want.  Libertarianism should be PROTECTING the institution of prostitution, and the freedom of individuals engaging in contracts between themselves. This reminds me of when Ron Paul was standing among all the Republicans and making ethical claims against pre-marital sex in an effort to pander to the Republican voter.  If there was any political movement that stood for prostitution, sex, pre-marital sex, etc., it would be libertarianism.  A REAL libertarian would never make ethical or moral claims against prostitution and, in the case of Ron Paul, pre-marital sex. 

This article isn't about libertarianism or its beliefs.  This is pure anti-Obama administration propaganda thinly disguised as libertarian doctrine.

The secret service of the united states of america employs men who will essentially rape as they see fit. If the hooker offered a price that was agreed upon, then it should be paid, otherwise the sex was non-consensual.

Prostitution is legal under restricted circumstances in columbia, however, the men trusted with the safety of the president of our free democracy should have the decency and will to abstain from endeavors which could potentially endanger the lives of those they are sworn to protect, and by extension the stability of the nation.

 

Pretending as if it is acceptable for even one individual at this level of security to possess such flaws is absurd.

american exceptionalism right?

I'm thinking with a proper investigation, it will be found that he was drunk and possibly high and that she had attempted to force him into a fraudulent contract.  Further, if proper maritime law is applied he will be found not liable because power of attorney belongs to his superior officer when one is smashed on shore leave and he is not allowed to enter any contracts in such a state.  

 

And if by some circumstance the contract is found valid, the agent will retain the right to raw dog her stink hole, because that is included at that price and that is clearly source of the disagreement.

Sad as it is, this is yet more evidence that the ALLSS (Adult Literacy and Life Skills Survey) vastly over-estmates 'document' literacy... for nowhere in Miller's piece did I read any pejorative directed at the prostitutes themselves, or at the SS agents for availing themselves of the prostitutes' services.

No... not a bit of it. The issue was that the SS - in typical .gov fashion - sought to change the terms of a contract after the services had been delivered.

If you were unable to glean that from the plain text, then in my estimation your reading comprehension is not at a level sufficient to enable you to cope with the everyday exigencies of the information age... and yet if I had to bet I would venture that you would fall into Cat4 or 5 (the top 2 categories) on the ALLSS. (.gov deliberately sets low benchmarks, so that it can claim that its vast expenditure on indoctrination is leading to improvements in literacy).

First of all, your name is spelled J.E.F.F.  JEFF.  NOT GEEEOOOFFF. GEOFF?  WTF?  Why do some people named Jeff have to be so WEIRD about the spelling of their name?  Don't be weird.  Your political affiliation and your identification with Fawkes is creepy enough. 

Secondly, you did not read "any pejorative directed at the prostitutes"   ????  Did you actually read the article? 

Give me a break!  The entire article is ANCHORED to THIS ONE QUOTE!

Advancement within a totalitarian group or party depends largely on a willingness to do immoral things. The principle that the end justifies the means, which in individualist ethics is regarded as the denial of all morals, in collectivist ethics becomes necessarily the supreme rule.

How could you possibly miss this?

Lastly, Mr. Miller was NOT writing an article about the SS changing the terms of the agreed upon price - that was not the thrust of the article.  It was about the central government/totalitarian group having the "freedom to do immoral things," as quoted by Hayek, such as engaging in prostitution.  The price discrepancy was just a detail mentioned by the National Post, not by Miller.

I think its immoral to tax when they can just print/counterfeit whatever they want. And that "price discrepancy" is no small detail to the one being taxed.

  1. You are the only one here suggesting prostitution is illegal or immoral. In ANY libertarian's mind, it is neither. It might be unsavoury, or seedy, but those are matters of taste, not morality.
  2. It's doubtful anyone would have heard word one of this matter EXCEPT at least one SS agent short-changed (probably in more ways than one..) the lady in question. That's breach of contract, which IS illegal to any libertarian.
  3. Calling out someone on the way he spells his name is childish, pointless, and says that you have no rational argument. BTW, one of my frat brothers spelt his name that way, and he was called "Gee-off", to which he never objected.

Pure garbage.  Mr. Miller wrote an article about the secret service and the prostitution scandal.  He quoted a comment by Hyak about ethics and morality to anchor his entire article.

That's where the ethics and morality came from.  Not me.  I'm just responding to it, and calling it for what it is.

Calling out someone name Jeff for spelling his name GEOFF is NOT childish.  It's ridiculous, foolish and embarrassing and he needs to know it.

SS and SA Rivalry --

"After Hitler took power in 1933, the SA became increasingly eager for power and saw themselves as the replacement for the German army, then limited by law to no more than 100,000 men. This angered the regular army (Reichswehr), which already resented the Nazis. It also led to tension with other leaders within the party, who saw Röhm's increasingly powerful SA as a threat to their own personal ambitions. Originally an adjunct to the SA, the Schutzstaffel (SS) was placed under the direct control of Heinrich Himmler in part to restrict the power of the SA and their leaders.

Although some of these conflicts were based on personal rivalries, there were also key socioeconomic conflicts between the SS and SA. SS members generally came from the middle class, while the SA had its base among the unemployed and working class. Politically speaking, the SA were more radical than the SS, with its leaders arguing the Nazi revolution had not ended when Hitler achieved power, but rather needed to implement socialism in Germany. Furthermore, the defiant and rebellious culture encouraged before the seizure of power had to give way to a community organization approach such as canvassing and fundraising, which was resented by the SA as Kleinarbeit, "little work," which had normally been performed by women before the seizure of power." --Wikipedia

Using sex to suborn or blackmail a government employee is the oldest trick in the book. Employing prostitutes while on active service is an act of stupidity that could directly affect their ability to do their duty.  Not sure if this is worse than, say, showing up for work hung over or losing one's gun but it must be close.

Intelligence may have "leaked".  People will have their "asses eaten out" over this "affair".  People will ask "Was ""Protection"" really the objective?"  This could really get "hairy".  If Navy was involved, we need to talk to those "seamen".  Nine months from now, will there be a new "breed" of Colombian Secret Service babies in existence?  And I'd like to know if any of those prostitutes were "tagged" with wires.  The agency's "glory" may go down the "hole".  Were official "handcuffs" used at any time during this "missionary"?  I also heard it was kind of "nippy" and rainy "down there", did the agents take "raincoats?"

So many questions.................

"After agreeing to pay $750".. that is just a he said she said thing. "She" may have said "I want to be with you forever" and they guy taking her home ignores it - doesn't mean that he agreed to spend his whole life with her.

Even for individuals there should be nothing immoral about prostituion. Why is it okay to be expected to pay when taking someone out for a date which may lead to sex, but wrong to pay for the sex itself and cut out the drama?

"Why is it okay to be expected to pay when taking someone out for a date which may lead to sex, but wrong to pay for the sex itself and cut out the drama?"

 

Women feel better about themselves when the payment for sex is in the form of drinks at the bar, meal, clothes, flowers or divorce settlement - rather than cash.

Most men also feel better about themselves paying like that, rather than paying cash.

It's all about feeling good about yourself and pretend that you're not a whore - or that you didn't just have sex with one for money.

Because while all women are whores they don't like to think of themselves as whores.  But they have vaginas and use them to get things they want, things like money and nice dinners.  And to avoid thinking of themselves as whores, sometimes they will let a guy buy them a nice dinner or take them somewhere expensive and not put out.

 

See how it works?

 

Yea, me neither.  All women are whores.

I agree with MsCreant on this. Still, I love to read Schopenhauers brilliant misogynic piece of work about women (On Women). I can understand why Schopenhauer had these feelings towards women (which had to do with his family). But there is also a long and old tradition of misogyny in Western philosophy.

I find it somewhat amusing that two of our greatest philosophers (Nietzsche and Schopenhauer) felt like that. Why? Well, our Northern culture always portrayed women differently than our friends from the south. Compare the role of women within the Greek (and Roman) mythology with the Germanic mythology. Even Hitler was not capable of destroying this with his mother cult. Many of the German test pilots during WWII were brave women. Ever heard of Melitta Schenk Gräfin von Stauffenberg? A jewish pilot that fought for Germany during WWII - tormented by the moral conflict inside her, that knew of the assassination plans of her brother-in-law, Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg, and her husband was confined in a concentration camp and when she desperately tried to fly to him, to find him, she was shot down by a U.S. fighter, crash landed her plane and died of the wound.

I cannot say that I respect all women. I don't. But I also do not respect all men. Some women have achieved the greatest things in history and were great leaders. Others were inventors or had a deep humanity. I pity you if you think that all women are whores.

Clara Immerwahr (how I love that woman - what a great person she was and what a cruel husband she had. Poor Clara.), Bertha Benz, Marie Curie, Hypatia, Zenobia, Boudica and so many more.

http://cryptome.xxx/2012/04/cu-vz-sex-trap.htm 

"18 April 2012

Secret Service DoD Sexual Entrapment by CU/VZ

Odd that Cuba and/or Venezuela have not openly been accused of orchestrating the Secret Service/DOD Cartagena sexual honey pot -- an entrapment long employed by spy services against the US and its allies, as well as by the US and its allies. Neither CU nor VZ took part in the Cartagena conference where the US failed to get approval for continued Cuba sanctions considered by Latin Americans to be US-Monroe Doctrine abusive.

Senator Collins has raised the possibility of a trap but will likely be briefed into silence. Neither Democrats or Republicans want to open this top secret Pandora's Box (excuse the pun).

The Open Government Partnership conference in Brasilia which followed Cartagena also camouflaged with triple-crossing "openness" the legacy of Monroe Doctrine covert operations in Latin America to enforce hemispheric hegemony with stealth and bribery.

The chances are high that the sexual entrapment was a CU/VZ counterspy operation against the nest of spies operating in Cartagena, and that White House and Congressional investigations will perfectly cloak the dust-up as it has since President Monroe ordered the standard deception in 1823."

Already happening CW....

 

Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, the senior Republican on the Homeland Security Committee, and Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., both said that more female Secret Service agents might help guard against such incidents from happening again.

"I can't help but wonder if there had been more women as part of that detail, if this ever would have happened," Collins said on ABC's "This Week."

Maloney told the same program that only 11 percent of the Secret Service's agents are women.

"I can't help but keeping asking this question: Where are the women? We probably need to diversify the service and have more minorities and more women," Maloney said

Yucky stuff. but the reporter actually did a decent job of explaining that these guys might have gotten promoted to supervisor on his watch. The former director could not recall a single termination for this behavior in the past. just (paid) "time off"

The talkative one (pictured) is an "escort" not a hooker.

She seems very adamant about the distinction ;-)

"The price alone, she said, indicates she is an escort, not a prostitute. “You have higher rank,” she said. “An escort is someone who a man can take out to dinner. She can dress nicely, wear nice makeup, speak and act like a lady. That’s me.”

When approached by a reporter for The New York Times, the woman was initially reluctant to speak about what had occurred. As she nervously told her story, a friend gave details that seemed to corroborate her account.

There was a language gap between the woman, 24, who declined to give her full name, and the American man who sat beside her at the bar and eventually invited her to his room. She agreed, stopped on the way to buy condoms but told him he would have to give her a gift. He asked how much. Not knowing he worked for Mr. Obama but figuring he was a well-heeled foreigner, she said, she told him $800."

ROTFLMAO!!!

Its bad enough to remember picking up a hooker while on assignment in a foriegn country (or anywhere for that matter) but to say you do not remember the terms of what you will be paying for services rendered stretches credibility to the breaking point.

I guess he thought cause he was "packin" she would just "roll over" and "take one" for the team as it were. I could go on all night...lol.

Its how she makes her money. Who knows what petty egomaniacs in government jobs think.

I thought she was describing the difference between a prostitute and a Secretary of State. The price alone indicates she is a Secretary of State, not a prostitute. A Secretary of State is "someone who a man can take out to dinner. She can dress nicely, wear nice makeup, speak and act like a lady.” "You have a higher rank."

$800 is nothing.  Go to NYC.  It is $800 for a few hours.  And this was after the SS had bought bottle after bottle at the club.  Bottles are hundreds of $$.  So $800 is nothing, especially for the SS, who likely each get paid six figures.

This story, more than anything, sounds like a set up.  Have any of the SS spoke up?  Nope.  I bet they knew about Barry's coke habits, or that Michelle is a lesbo, or something like that, and they got rid of 'em.

Or something even more sinister is going on....because now the SS may have been comprimised.  Just sayin', $800 is nothing.

$80k is not enough to be "poppin' bottles up in the club" with any regularity, and nor is $100k (our household income significantly more than that AFTER tax - and we have no mortgage and no kids - yet it would be financial suicide to routinely splash out for that sort of shit).

"are you retarted?"

 

"retarted"

 

"nor is $100k (our household income significantly more than that AFTER tax - and we have no mortgage and no kids"

 

Based on your spelling and your avatar I'm going to go ahead and assume the household income you speak of is your parents, with whom you live.  I've never seen anyone over the age of 21 misspell "retarded."

It's impolite to make fun of retarted people.

You missed his pun.  Re*tarted. To tart again.  See, a tart can be another word for 'high-end whore' or, oddly enough, 'secretary of state.'  So he was simply asking if you frequented the same paid slab more than once.

I think the minimum monthly salary in Colombia is about $500

There is a story but we will never know what it really is.  Was the SS detail a bit too white?   This one guy names Chaney supposedly is from TX and his pickup had a Texas should secede from the union bumper sticker.  The moron posted crap on Facebook.  He is the one who said he wa s"checking out" Palin while he was guarding her.

They are all pigs feeding at the govt trough.

Too white?  No, too stupid.

 

He got away with all the other crap, and would still have a job if he'd paid his hooker.  Having a TX secede sticker should be terms enough for dismisall from the secret service, if it was a matter of O wanting a "blacker" SS he'd have it already.

What you see here is just schadenfreude.  They are just happy to see other people suffer, especially people that work for the government.  There's also some anti-Obama sentiment mixed in.  And most of ZH isn't really libertarian at all, they're just wealthy wanna-be feudal lords with a nice dose of Christianity mixed in.  The Christianity part being why they are so quick to judge everyone and denounce them as moral degenerates.

 

But calling out the typical ZH reader and showing them they're as petty and dumb as everyone else isn't how you make friends around here.

Friends? Nmewn schooled me on Democrats about a year ago, a punch in the face of stupidity is the best way to find real friends among men.

Was I the puncher or the punchee? ;-)

My stance has always been the same, the size & scope of government is too large, no matter who is in charge. It takes ever more from the private sector for its own use until there is no more.

One of the problems is baseline budgeting. With this accounting process government needs are guaranteed to grow every year no matter what the tax revenue is.

It is, guaranteed deficit spending in business down cyles. The protection of the masters, the ruling class. The citizens didn't pass this...they did.

You and I and all of us make do with what comes in as revenue...they should too. 

I'm gonna grill some steaks now. Not Kobi beef either made by a WH chef. They're ribeyes...and I asked no one to pay for them or grill them...I will.

Just ask any "public servant", they work their hardest under the toughest conditions.  Now get to work lest the IRS kick down your door and take your possessions in order to protect you from bad people.
