The news is dominated about the POTUS revoking 1 security clearance. Absolutely going nuts about it. 1st amendment violation criminal action revoking the clearance etc.

As it turns out the Obama admin did the exact same thing in 2013. Actually a house cleaning not just one person.

In more detail the exact same guy that has been pitching such a fit now is the one that did it. Note the 2 people in the picture.

Am I missing something here?

I can explain it, TDS.
I have been on here long enough to remember these same "libs" when Obama was in office. It was all different back then. They have either saw their god (George Sore.ass) and became changed or they are hypocrites.

Do you only read the headlines and then stick your head in the sand? Read the article.

The issue isn't revoking a security clearance, Trump is revoking it for Trumps own personal reasons.
There is a process to revoke clearance and Trump is not going through any process. Granted, as President he doesn't have too.
One of the individuals works for the FBI and needs it for his job, while some are consulted by other government personal or businesses.

The Obama administration has ordered a government-wide reassessment of how almost 5 million Americans have been granted classified information security clearances and whether each person currently approved to see sensitive national security secrets truly has a need for such access.
The new order (2013) may not have much immediate effect on the number of people with security clearances. That’s because individuals retain their clearances for a period of time even after they leave their jobs or are deemed to no longer require access to classified information.

Swing and miss Jim. What can you use for fact Trump is doing this for his own personal reasons?

What is the period of time they retain them after leaving public service? Some is forever and reviewed in 5 10 or 15 year intervals.

whether each person currently approved to see sensitive national security secrets truly has a need for such access.
Which one works for the FBI and needs it? He has only revoked 1 and he doesn't need it.

Try again. You are failing.

IMHO if you don't have a need for it right now you shouldn't have one. After you leave office it's gone. Obama didn't use Bush's people and Trump is not going to use Obama's people. Why are people from the Nixon Admin still running around with SC's? Just maybe if they get rid of some of these SC's maybe some of the leaks will go with them. It's not a crime to tell someone something classified even if they are out of office if they have the clearance so the source has no risk and once its out try to prove where it came from. Time to go back to, loose lips sink ships mentality.

To a degree I think you're right, however it has been the practice for these officials to assist others even if they aren't under the same President. There is something to be said for knowing the history of how or why things took place. By the same token, just because someone has a clearance rating doesn't mean they have access to anything unless it's granted.
I'm assuming, but pretty sure these individuals cannot walk into the Pentagon and go look at anything without being invited.

A lot of people have security clearances who don't work for the government, and many of these people become employed by companies where the clearance is necessary to perform their job.

The real problem is when the President revokes a clearance because someone disagrees with him or says something he doesn't like.
That is not a legitimate reason to revoke a clearance. There is a process to revoke a security clearance. The President can obviously revoke a security clearance, and i'm pretty sure he can grant security clearances on his own. That part now becomes scary because he may or already has granted clearances to people who shouldn't have access to certain information. His son in law is one example. The forms he filled out have been incorrect or not filled out, and he has been required to provide the correct information many times. There is something wrong when one must correct forms something like 40 or 50 times.
Security clearances should never be used as a reward or punishment for anything.

Look Jim, as normal you all pick the worst martyrs. Hands up don't shoot fake BS in Ferguson and a thug trying to take a cops gun after stealing from a store and assaulting the clerk. Or Freddy, a heroin dealer in Baltimore. How many people have to die from that shit?
Now it Claptrap. The reason past directors (and others) kept their SC's was because they acted "like a current CIA director" did. Calling the sitting POTUS treasonous is over the top. Please remember it's not a law its a courtesy. After what has gone on the last couple years I would pull every one of them.

You can't keep your security clearance if your current behavior would prevent you from obtaining one if you were applying today.

I'm not sure where your martyrs thing comes from or is going and don't see how it applies. For what it's worth, some of what you've mentioned I'd probably agree with you on.

Whether calling this president treasonous or not could be a matter of interpretation, and I don't think there's any law making that statement. He certainly comes close and certainly not acting like a good president. The issue still remains that Trump pulled the clearance and has a list of personal enemies because they said something he didn't like. That is not a valid reason to pull clearances.

It sounds as though some of you stand behind the Constitution until it comes to someone peaking out about your President. I don't recall ever hearing criticism of the President violating any Free Speech rules.

What behavior are you talking about? Expressing ones opinion generally is not a reason.
Since when do you know the criteria of obtaining a top secret security clearance. Stating on national TV the POTUS committed treason? Come on Jim you can be denied a security clearance due to an association your uncle had 30 years ago.

Your Liberal mindset is flawed.

Holy hell you are an idiot.
Are you actually suggesting that ones clearance follows them from public to private sector?
Or from employer to employer??

An association with someone may be a valid reason to deny a clearance, but expressing a personal opinion that is not threatening is not a valid reason.
If your criteria is correct, how did ALL of Trumps people who have been convicted or pleaded guilty get their clearances?
I probably know as much about clearances as you. I've had clearances in the past and I would assume that if I need to use it now, it may have to be reevaluated or redone, I don't know, regardless of my mindset.

Im sure you know everything about clearances, so when did liberal mindset become a criteria. I'm sure in you mind it would be a factor.
Whatever your mindset is, it's flawed. I'm glad we know how you view things.

Generally speaking, it does. If one has a reasonably current clearance, the process is not nearly as lengthy as if one has never had one.
Your phrasing is one of an idiot.

No...you are not missing anything.
The POTUS revoking security clearances is well within his authority allotted to the office of POTUS. As you said, Obama cleaned house, but that FACT is irrelevant to the whinny Liberals.......if not crying about Security clearances they will cry bitch and moan about something else or anything related to President Trump and his family. Losing control is one thing the Left can not tolerate or accept, and "they" and their MSM Army are on a mission to destroy him at any and all costs. However, there is a silver lining is their madness... the depths, magnitude, and players in the Deep State are being fully exposed and IMO, will be dealt with over time.

The process is sometimes less involved if you have had recent clearance, and depending on the level of lateral clearance.
But I can assure you, as a person who has had DOD employee secret clearance, and then private contractor clearance at the same level, It does NOT transfer. It goes bye bye.

Im curious Jughead, what level of clearance have you had?

In your particular case it would be understandable to reinvestigate each and every time, so I understand why you assume what you assume. I'm sure whatever clearance you are claiming was from long ago, if you were and which there is reason to doubt.
Generally, one has to be reasonably mentally stable, and with your history and 30,000 posts between this site and Riverdaves, plus other places you'd be disqualified instantly.

Did you ever discuss in an open forum what clearances or in what areas you had? That question alone makes me wonder if you ever had anything, You're nothing more than a troll and dick.

Lol
so the answer is no, you’ve never had any secret clearance at any level.

My original clearance was basic secret clearance for certain general site access, like Shemya and forward radar sites. Had that 4 years.
During that 4 years I had my clearance upgraded in temporary increments for specific Raytheon and Ch2m Hill site access. I’ve been in the control room of Cobra Dane, and I’ve seen the red and white phones that connect direct to the Oval Office and Cheyenne Mountain. I’ve stood in the silo of Queen Match, where they tested one of Ronnie’s space defense missiles. Ive stood in the SAC hanger with the Cobra Ball planes (although I was not allowed to go in it) and ive been in the forward cells when the F15’s were scrambled to intercept Russian planes.
I’ve been on the planes with the couriers of encrypted data, with their briefcases cuffed to their wrist and other hand nervously hovering around their sidearm while they stare you down.

When you leave a gov job, your clearance ends. When you hire on after that with a contractor, you re apply in that capacity.

Stick with what you know Jughead, crusading your neighborhood policing HOA violations.

Reality
As usual THATGAY says my answer is no regarding clearance. I'm curious how he comes to that conclusion, maybe it's some sort of inner vision? In his typical fashion of having no knowledge he makes up whatever he wants and posts without any knowledge.
That's very typical of someone who is a keyboard troll and habitual liar. With over 30,000 posts, how would he have time to do anything else? Over 15,000 posts on this site and over 15,000 on Riverdaves, plus other locations.
More likely, one of those Russian Trolls.


In all of the supposed descriptions of his ventures for having clearance, everything he describes is that he was near or saw, there was never even a suggestion that his supposed clearance was even necessary. He was probably on a guided tour of some sort, if even that.

Why doesn't THATGAY ever post anything factual or that contributes to any topic, since he doesn't? Hell, why does he really come to this site? He doesn't post anything in the boating FORUMS, and that makes him nothing more than a useless troll trying stir up crap.
