What does Dan Bongino, a former Secret Service agent and the author of “Life Inside the Bubble: Why a Top-Ranked Secret Service Agent Walke...,” say is a “very, very dangerous” development in America?
Speaking on the Glenn Beck Program Thursday, Bongino — who is also running for Congress in Maryland’s sixth district — described bureaucracy that has “grown so large” as a cause for grave concern.
“My experience in the government is, when something arrives on your desk, you assume it’s been through these massive layers of bureaucracy and management – that you don’t even ask the basic questions,” he explained.
That applies whether the threat is external, or whether that question should be, “is this constitutional?” he added.
When Beck asked whether the nation is facing more or fewer dangers than in the past, Bongino didn’t hesitate before responding: “I think it’s actually more dangerous — the irony being that as we’ve expanded our surveillance safety net and become a literal surveillance state – this isn’t a movie anymore, it’s very real.”
“It’s bureaucratic laziness at its worst,” he continued. “Instead of looking at common sense measures to combat a real threat going forward, we’re now blanket surveilling everyone, (who have) now become de facto criminals.”
Bongino concluded with a warning: “Liberty’s a zero sum game, Glenn. It can’t belong to you and the government at the same time.”
Beck said that he “can’t think of anybody” he’d rather have in Congress than Dan Bongino.

O is nuts.
HOW COME NOBODY ON THIS SITE OR ANY OTHER SITES IS TALKING ABOUT GETTING THE TRUTH OUT THERE ON NATIONAL TV ( WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO CREATE ONE ,THAT WILL BE VIEWED ON NATIONAL NEWS ) . DO YOU THINK PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY KNOW WHAT THE WORD PROPAGANDA MEANS ?
As refreshing as that sounds, good luck! The only way you are to get to the truth is if you, or a consortium like you, buys their own TV and radio station.
We do have a few radio stations that have a very few truth-tellers, like Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh.
But, for TV, we only Fox News, and I think they are not putting out the entire truth. Too much political BS!
You get the TV programming and I will watch it!
