Former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino, author of the soon to be released “Life Inside the Bubble: Why a Top-Ranked Secret Service Agent Walked Away From It All,” says the actions of the Obama administration are worse than the American public can imagine.
He made his comments in an interview on the Alex Jones Show yesterday and they have gone viral, including a hit on the Drudge Report.
Bongino told Jones that: “It’s worse than people know… and I’m not trying to scare you either.”
His warning highlighted the possibility that the government could be compiling private information, through NSA spying and other methods, on American citizens and could later use that data to intimidate individual citizens.
“…It’s only a matter of time before someone slaps an email on your desk from fifteen years ago… and says ‘look what we got against you.’ Remember, when the key is held by someone else liberty means absolutely nothing. That personal and private self are being evaporated,” Bongino stated.
Bongino is not optimistic in his assessment of the current government, its policies, and how it is leading this country.
“We’re in a lot of trouble. The president sees government – and I think it’s because of his lack of experience and maybe community organizing in the past – as this shiny new toy,” Bongino said.
Why would a successful, 12-year Secret Service agent resign his elite position in the prime of his career to run for high public office and blow the whistle on what goes on at the highest levels in Washington, D.C., as Bongino did?
To be released Nov. 19 by WND Books, his “Life Inside the Bubble: Why a Top-Ranked Secret Service Agent Walked Away from It All” is a look at life inside the presidential “bubble,” a haze of staffers, consultants, cronies, acolytes, bureaucrats and lobbyists that creates the “alternate reality” in which monumental policy decisions are made.
And it is the story of a dedicated Secret Service professional who, after years inside the “bubble,” walked away in favor of sounding a clarion call to the American people in defense of sane government and the U.S. Constitution.
Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity praised the book as “a rare peek inside the D.C. ‘Bubble’ which should be a wake-up call to every American.”
And former congressman and U.S. Army Col. Allen West said, “Dan Bongino walked away because he is an American patriot and the embodiment of the highest standards of honor, integrity, and character … exactly what we need inside the bubble.”
Take the journey with Bongino from the tough streets of New York City where he was raised, and later patrolled as a member of the NYPD, to the White House as a member of the elite Presidential Protective Division, through his ultimate decision to resign from the Secret Service in the prime of his career to run for the United States Senate against the feared Maryland Democratic machine.
Follow his experiences inside the Washington D.C. matrix and discover why a government filled with some incredibly dedicated people nevertheless continues to make such frequent and tragic mistakes. Indeed, Bongino shows why the “Fast & Furious” scandal, the terror bombings in Boston and the terrorist attacks in Benghazi are merely harbingers of what’s to come to America without a bold change in direction.
Starting his career in law enforcement with the NYPD in 1995, Bongino joined the ranks of the Secret Service in 1999 as a special agent where he was assigned to investigate financial crimes. In 2006, he entered into duty with the elite Presidential Protective Division in the administration of President George W. Bush and remained on protective duty during the change in administration to that of President Barack Obama. He resigned from the Secret Service in 2011 to run for a U.S. Senate seat in Maryland.
