Blind Item #4

For the time being there are about ten-fifteen Secret Service agents who were pulled from bank crimes and other investigations to help protect the former actress and her celebrity husband. The number will probably go down as the rotation process for their permanent security can begin again. Currently that team is frozen in place and won't be able to do their normal two week rotations back home. Also supplementing are county law enforcement personnel. The US is picking up the bill for about 70% of the $20K a day cost which will go higher once everyone starts moving around again.

Markle and Harry

This better NOT be the ex-Sussex. This f-king better NOT BE those two idiots.

Me said...

Why Secret Service? Shouldn't it be DSS?

Do Tell said...

This is definitely Dimwit Harry and his asshole wife. The Sun had an article about the EX-ROYALS begging for the Secret Service protection they do not deserve. Pay for your own goddamn protection, which by the way, MarkedDown, will not protect you from COVID 19.

Thia said...

This is so disgusting.

Chippy Hick said...

Starts with C and rhymes with stunts

Jessie said...

Time to start a twitter storm. Everyone should contact Trump. I don't like him but at least it will get into the news. THREE countries THREE freaking countries were paying for these idiots. Harry isn't even an American citizen or a Canadian citizen, yet our taxes are going towards him? And Meghan? I bet kidnappers would pay the US government to keep her away from them.

Please, folks, our taxes should be going towards people, families who are dealing with the Coronavirus. Not two people who wants to dance around Hollywood and act like Kings and Queens. Harry is a multimillionaire and can afford to pay for security himself. If not, he should be the UK TAXPAYERS problem. Not the US taxpayers.

Please...please @ Trump with this. The more people to contact him on twitter the better chances he'll see it and speak about it.


I can't fing believe those two have the balls to use THREE countries for their security.

HARRY GO BACK HOME!!!!!

Now I'm hoping Meghan cleans him out in the divorce and take the kid for child support.

gauloise said...

The State of CA could be providing it for now

Alana said...

I agree. Who is authorizing payment. This needs to be stopped right now. They should have enough money to pay their own way.

Do Tell said...

I just tweeted Trump about doing just that. Hope a lot of other people do.

Nutty Flavor said...

I'm not sure Trump can do anything about it. There may be bilateral agreements in place; cutting off the Sussexes in the US might raise questions about the cost of protecting US diplomats in Britain.

Officially, the Sussexes are no longer part of the Royal Family as of April 1. You would think that would have an effect on their right to protection, but perhaps it doesn't.

Trump is no Sussex fan - Meghan once called him "syphills" and Harry insists that he has "blood on his hands" for encouraging the US coal industry - but he does have a good relationship with the Queen. Trump's mother was Scottish and a great Royalist.

J said...

Why should American taxpayers pay a dime for that miserable hippo and her halfwit dipshit husband?

J said...

Sorry, they're exactly the kind of useless assholes Trump loves.

Nutty Flavor said...

BTW, it's fine to Tweet Trump, but it would also be a good idea to Tweet some of the reporters who show up in his daily news briefings.

If Trump is asked about it live on the air, he'll have to explain why US taxpayers are on the hook for this, or perhaps give an indication of how long it will last, given that the move is "permanent."

The County law enforcement people must be furious. As if they don't have enough else to do in California right now.

PoliticallyIncorrect71 said...

This is bullshit. They’re loaded. They choose to leave. She berates the president publicly. My sisters bristro is closed and will probably fold because of this tyrannical stay at home bs. Pay for your own security

Bleu said...

Except the Secret Service is federal, so all US taxpayers would be footing the bill right now. The whole thing sounds strange -- but of all agencies, the Secret Service sounds right, as it operates both in the USA and in, for example, Canada. I wonder if the US protection has more to do with Harry and US-UK-Canada relations than Meghan though.

Soapdish said...

Why are we responsible for their security costs? They aren’t here in an official capacity. They chose to leave the royal family. If anything, they should be in England or Canada. They have millions and made their own bed, let them pay for their own security.

gauloise said...

@Nutty They have to ask for special protection from Trump as Harry is no longer a protected person as of Aprl 1. The diplomat thing is meant for short stays not permanent residents. This has been stated in a number of news articles.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8163161/Harry-Meghan-ask-Trump-special-help-Canada-bids-security-costs-farewell.html

Although, I do worry how they will be able to afford a 20 million dollar home without the US taxpayer paying for their security.

Rose said...

They wanted to go it alone in the big brave world - so go and do it. Granny you pay for this two bit actress and Prince Gormless. All governments have better things to spend money on than these two. security my a$r$e who wants these can have them.

My little Spanish style cottage said...

Too bad the money can’t go to the homeless in Los Angeles. Imagine what that amount would do.

Goddess said...

Hapless Harry and Me-me-meghan. Grifters extraordinare.

Sunkist said...

Our Sheriffs in CA are county, Cops are city. Either way, the city/county of LA has no business paying for two rich pricks. One a sheltered dim-wit (dumb enough to be taken in by a narcissistic climber) the other AN ASSHOLE when are housing and homeless crisis here are job one. These idiots should be raising money in support, not depleting money/resources. LA CANNOT afford it. Same with the rest of the country, we are in a recession. Why the fuck did they come here? No one wants them. I heard they left because they'd have to start paying taxes in Canada. GUESS WHAT ASSHOLES...INDEPENDENT PEOPLE PAY TAXES. I say tweet his daddy Charles. @PrinceofWales --send cash...your spongers are doing harm to real taxpayers. Sorry, I know he is ill, but he is the one with the money right?

Nutty Flavor said...

I understand, @Gauloise, and it really doesn't make sense that the Sussexes are getting protection.

My guess that something extrajudicial is in place, possibly (as a UK commenter on my blog pointed out) connected to the Harry Dunn case, which is huge in Britain but largely unknown in the US.

(Harry Dunn, a 19-year-old motorcyclist, was run down by the wife of an American diplomat driving on the wrong side of the road. The woman claimed immunity and left the UK the next day. The British public would very much like her back for a trial. It has since emerged that the woman was not just the wife of a diplomat, but a former CIA agent.)

J said...

Speaking of Harry Dunn, that loathsome American murderer should be in a British prison right now.

Jessie said...

Tweet the reporters, tweet the royals, tweet Trump! Tweet it until it is TRENDING.

OUR TAXES SHOULD NOT BE GOING TO HARRY, A NON-US CITIZEN (AND EVEN IF HE WAS, HE STILL DOES NOT QUALIFY TO USE OUR TAXES FOR HIS SECURITY WHILE HE'S RICH AND HIS RICH FAMILY SITS IN PALACES AND CASTLES)!!! NO one cares about Meghan. She's a Z-lister and needs no protection from any government. Let her rich in-laws or her rich husband protect her. And no one can tell Archie fron any other baby. They don't put out many pictures or videos of him for him to be in any danger. Again, Archie rich family can put out money to protect him.

We are in a pandemic. No telling when it will end. The money used on these idiots could be spent saving our poor and middle class from dying or from economic hardship.

PLEASE FOLKS MAKE THIS TREND ON TWITTER. TWEET ANYONE AND EVERYONE: REPORTERS, CELEBRITIES, TRUMP, POLITICIANS, ETC. THE RICH SHOULD NOT BE TAKING FROM THE MIDDLE CLASS AND POOR!!!!!!!

Kate said...

Contact Governor Newsom: @GavinNewsom
Contact the Governor's Press: @GovPressOffice
Contact The Office of the Governor of California: @CAgovernor

Contact LAPD Chief: @LAPDChiefMoore
Contact LA County Sheriff: @LASDHQ

Find out who the reps are in the counties and contact them. California shouldn't be on the hook to pay for a failed, petulant Prince and his delusional wife.

Unknown said...

Meghan will find nobody cares about her in LA or Hollywood even with the hubby and her meltdown as a result will be epic.

IndieRaga said...

Can't believe this.....I feel Harry hatched this plan all along and Markle just went along!

Ebb said...

The Donald just tweeted that the U.S. will not pay for their security protection.

Murky Meg from Youtube said...

Trump just tweeted about it..... confirming that the US will not be paying for their security

“ I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!”

Vita said...

They infuriate me. Did we get a diplomatic lunch requesting protection like Canada did? Best case scenario, the secret service leave on april 1st. Because of our good will with Queen, I could see desire to protect Harry and family at certain public events, but they chose to leave royalty and move to a non-Commonwealth country! And, the choice of a $20 mil house really blows their poor-mouthing about the personal expense right out of the water. No one wants to see harm or endangerment, obviously, but I feel like every move they make is only partially thought through...to the extent of how it can work for them.

That Dunn case is a total shame, and I hope has no link to this.

Vita said...

Phew...was busy typing my tirade when that tweet was posted.

Nutty Flavor said...

Trump can certainly move fast when he wants to.

Enty has good sources in Los Angeles, however, so I don't doubt that the Sussexes have some security, at least until March 31.

Could the UK be paying for the Secret Service to protect Harry and Meghan until the borders open and their RPOs can be rotated out?

This may have been the arrangement in Canada as well - some of the security was provided by Canada, but Canada was reimbursed by the UK.

Colonel Blake said...

The Royals begged Diana to retain their personal protection teams. She refused as she believed they would just report back to the Firm.
History is repeating itself here. Also, does anyone really give two shits about them? I mean, the Kartrashians have the market in California.

marjorie said...

Here's PresidentTrump's tweet: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1244338645198352386

Pottymouth said...

Harry and Meg Hewitt are soon to be divorced delusional nobodies. Complete jokes. Pay your own way, you muppets!

Vita said...

Nutty-- I bet you got it! The Secret Service is being used at UK expense, especially during isolation!

Rammed Earth said...

When wefigure out what this fuss is really about the tops of our pointy little heads are going to pop like JFKs. Preparez-vos mouchoirs.

R. J. Anderson said...

Trump isn't in charge of whether the government pays. Perhaps Trump should discuss with someone who knows (not the feckless sycophantic fluffers cluttering the West wing) about the particulars of any bilateral agreements with the UK regarding security. Suggest getting it right and not blow diplomatic relations our of the water. We already screwed up with the wife who doesn't know how to drive in the UK and doesn't know how to call a taxi.

Anyone who thinks Trump isn't going to protect the Queen's grandson and great-grandson is naive in the extreme. Twitter is a poor vehicle on which to make announcements that may ruffle feathers. A call to 10 Downing Street or to our UK Ambassador is certainly in order.

There's a reason why security isn't left up to personal opinion. Protection depends on a review of possible threats. The more threats and documented animosity tips the scales toward protection. If its required, the government pays. End of.

Simon said...

Trump said today government not will pay but maybe the state of CA will.

Hotbox said...

I’m American & I agree 100%. We need to ship her cowardly, guilty ass back there so she can face punishment.

MDAnderson said...

I don’t know who has the authority to say who pays but this bad timing for H&M. People are jobless and are in desperate times without actually being infected with the coronavirus. No one is going to support protecting them in the US when they are worried about paying their rent and providing for your family.

GabbyJ said...

Canada was said to be ending payment for their security as of March 31st. Maybe that's why the Sussex's decided to move to California now, in the midst of COVID-19. They hoped her American passport could buy them a few months of paid security. It's rumored that Megan used to send the national police in Canada to the supermarket for their groceries - just like normal regular private citizens :/

They could have gone anywhere and they choose a state with so many COVID-19 cases. Why would they expose Archie to that? Even if they are in isolation, they have servants and security that are still interacting with others. The Queen must be having a meltdown.

Gator said...

I hope Trump is right. We should not have to pay for their security, especially since they're not doing jack shit for the royal family, or anyone else for that matter. CA certainly has enough financial problems, they shouldn't be burdened with it either.

Blue Haired Witch said...

Mnuchin may have his fingers in this pie. Wasn't he a producer or something at one time? There have been rumors he knew Markle during her yachting days too.

Billeye4 said...

Trump just said there was no way the US was going to pay for their security. Hm

J said...

Trump tweeting something means nothing.

Does no one pay attention?

Billeye4 said...

That’s what I heard too. I hope they don’t. Send them back to somewhere anywhere but here!!!

Sd Auntie said...

They are not and Newsome, Garcetti will make sure of it. These two are dumb and dumber

AuntBee said...

@Murky Meg From You Tube I love your videos! And would someone remind the Dim Duchess that Trump is still president and she promised not to live here as long as he’s in office so would she kindly leave and come back in 2025?

Jessie said...

Thanks everyone who tweeted.

For those:

Trump tweeted about it.

The media hates Trump enough that someone will probably investigate whether this is true or not. Pull a Freedom For Information Act request, maybe.

And the headlines can gloat about it "Trump lies and US government/Cali government pays $x dollars to Meghan and Harry's security" or confirm Trump is telling the truth and list that Harry is rich, his father and grandmother are rich and Harry could pay for his own security or go back to the UK where security is built into the Royal lifestyle.

I'll continue to tweet reporters and Cali politicians to be sure the taxpayers of Cali aren't footing the bill for these two idiots. Cali has a lot of poor people living on the streets, a lot of working poor, a lot of middle class people who are struggling. There is no need to waste monetary resources on an ex-Prince and his Z-list wife.

TeeHee@U said...

I just have no words for the grifter and Royal dipshit.

MM refused to let the Queen see Archie for fears of coronavirus in the UK and there are 5,000 coronavirus cases in CA currently, alone, and she is moving WITH ARCHIE to LA where homelessness and coronavirus is rampant and still expects Uk/US funding for security.

Go ask your friend Oprah to foot your security bill you narcissistic, "royal," free loaders.

Ann said...

All the governments are stuck until March 30th but imagine the smiles as security waves these two underachievers goodbye on April 1st.

STN said...

Trump hates Meghan for her dismissive behavior when he visited England and Harry for those less than flattering remarks he made to the Thunberg hoaxers from Russia. No money there but there's no telling what that idiot Newsome will do.

Besides, Harry and Archie are not in North America. Divorce is in progress. Even Enty doesn't have the balls to ferret out that truth.

kregger said...

Garcetti is the biggest star fucker in LA---if Meghan asks the city of LA to pay for her secruity he will give her city funds for this this. Trust me. Newsom has more common sense, but not Garcetti. When JLo didn't get nominated for an Oscar, Garcetti issued a press release. Yes. Fuck him. He only cares about the Hollywood rich and famous.

GrandIllusionz said...

@ AuntBee that"s right, Markle did say that!

But they most likely came here to CA sooner than planned because of the virus.

Her mom lives in LA and the US-Canadian border was about to be shut down. I'm sure she wants to be near mama in case something happens.

It does make some sense too since CA (pop 39.5 million) has 6,204 cases as of 5pm Sunday while Canada (pop 37.5 million) has as many (6,280) over the whole, far less densely populated country!

Zilla3 said...

She wants to be near her mom in case something happens, yet Harry's father HAS COVID-19 and they are now an ocean and a continent away from him because of her.

Jan 15 said...


This discussion may be about financials, and a citizen’s right for a say in how their money is spent. But, Meg’s supporters will say that this is blatant racism.


Besides, apparently the US is jealous of real star power, and are worried about being outshined by Meg and Harry. The US has a new power couple and the American people just need to wake to it and utilize them appropriately.

Also, Meg and Harry have already been invited to the White House, and Camp David. The Supreme Court has asked Meg to give a speech about the important issue of word salad humanitarianism.

The US should feel privileged to host this couple.




/end sarcasm.

CatEyes said...

Markle not only insulted Trump, she also publicly insulted Ivanka Trump. Add in Harry's insults.

I have one good thing to like about Trump now, but only one thing.

Harry's got millions, and a trust fund. He can hire his own private security.

Lucky Dog said...

10-15 secret service. 1. I don’t believe that for a second. 2. Paul McCartney travels with 1-2 private security, as does Elton John. Why would these two need so many?! Seriously, why?? What exactly do they need protection from?? It sure seems to me no one in the world wants them. 3. Trump isn’t going to pay for these two grifters. He has said as much and did not mince words. This is all a load of nonsense, probably more MM pr horsesh**.

Studio54 said...

This is what helped kill Diana, his mother. Once she lost her royal protection in the divorce, the press were all over her, right up until she died with the press chasing her car.

These people and their son are prime kidnapping targets. I remember when J Paul Getty III was kidnapped, and his pathologically cheap grandfather didn't want to pay the ransom. The guy was lucky he only lost his ear to the kidnappers. This is a very dangerous situation, and Meghan was stupid to even consider it.

Studio54 said...

@LuckyDog, Why do they need so much security? Because GRANDMUMMY DEAREST is head of state and worth 88 billion. THEY HAVE TO BE PROTECTED. Add racism and all the people that hate her on the blogs, MORE THAN PERV ANDREW, and it is a very explosive situation. Grandmummy should be reimbursing the United States.

Tea Cup said...

Harry and Meghan can fucking act like grown-ups and pay for their own damn security. No way in hell anybody really cares about these two; well, maybe their stans so they can GoFundMe their security if they want to clutch their pearls. The useless Sussex self-importance and implied threats to their safety is all in their fat heads so make them pay for their vanity. Nobody is interested in these two blah blah blahs. They really are irrelevant.

Lucky Dog said...

Studio54, nope. Diana got in the car with a drunk driver and didn’t wear her seatbelt. Happens all the time, and, yes, people die when drunk drivers get behind wheel, as they do when they forgo wearing seatbelts, especially when driving THAT fast, chased or not. She would have survived had she worn the seatbelt. Getty was drunk and high wandering around streets of Rome in the middle of the night when he was was snatched. Not grandpa’s fault, but, luckily, the kid survived, only to continue severely abusing drugs. Harry and Meghan were protected. They left. They wanted out of a royal family and even out of England, where protection was easier and cheaper. They wanted independence and to make their own way, supposedly. They do not HAVE to be protected by the family and country they chose to leave. But, sure, if they WANT to be protected, they can certainly afford to do so and ought to stop expecting others to foot their whims and desires. No one owes them anything. And FFS, the race card is played and stale. She isn’t the first person of color to join a European royal family, and if race were such an issue, she could have used all the available colors of emoji hands in her stupid clapping post but chose just white, much like her acting resume. Enough already with the undue entitlement and excuses. The only ones responsible for any “explosive situation” are Meghan and Harry, and sometimes even the cheapest of wealthy people must learn to reach into their own pockets.

lutefisk said...

Where are they going that they need security? The entire world is staying home. They can buy a home security camera and a dog.

Studio54 said...

@Lucky Dog: Diana had to get out of the Ritz which was surrounded by paps, to try to get to Dodi's apartment. In that situation, they had a Ritz driver who was drunk. They had to gun it because they were being pursued by the paps all the way up to the crash.

They won't be allowed to have any peace in this country either, even paying for their own protection. Not with all the right wing nuts, Q cult and racists that have it in for them. And it's the perfect issue for "divide and distract" Trump, which is why he tweeted about it, red meat to his stupid base.

Unknown said...

Oh for goodness sakes, Enty you are a lying sack of s***, there were no secret service agents and you know it. If there was anything it would have been the few remaining RPOs & local police from Gavin Newsom

Do Not Lie said...

Stop with the hysteria. Markle is not the target. If they want her they can call Marcus Anderson. Everyone else does but that was before her 43 Birthday and her peasant cloaked in nouveau riche bitchily arrogant false aires.

Lucky Dog said...

Studio54, if they want peace, they could stay off social media. They could drop the constant PR. They could have bought a nice home somewhere away from the media hotspots. People would lose interest. But, that’s not what they want at all. They chose to go to LA,, which is the opposite of peaceful and private and hardly right wing. And regardless of how hotly Diana was pursued, there was plenty of time to fasten her seatbelt, and opting not to was a horrible, avoidable tragedy. I’d rather see Harry and Meghan learn to take actual responsibility for their lives and choices than be victims of anything.

Do Not Lie said...

Lucky Dog, precisely. This is Markle's agenda and Harry, the narcissist Markle's target of abuse and exploitation as he represents her stake in power, money and influence. No longer on a yacht being trifled with then dismissed, Markle has her claws and talons in this immature almost decade chronologically younger and 2 decades younger psychologically Royal. An unfair coupling for benefit if ever there was one! My guess is he'll outgrow her desperation and lack of integrity as well as lack of intelligence especially when she is arrested. Hence the security? My theory!

AbbyRock said...

A grifter marries into a family who has been grifting for centuries. We should not be surprised that these 2 entitled douche bags expect everyone else to pick up the tab for THEIR security. I say, Fuck 'em. If they're that damned scared someone wants to hurt them, they should stop calling attention to every thing they do.

Studio54 said...

Re: The Secret Service and American taxpayer being ripped off. The right wing say nothing while Trump, who spent every second he could before this pandemic at one of his branded properties, he is ripping off the American taxpayers by charging the Secret Service an OUTRAGEOUS $650 a night, and he pockets the money when they stay at his properties, which is the only place Trump goes. He has made A FORTUNE off of ripping off the Secret Service, forcing Pence to stay on the other side of Ireland when there at HIS property, the money going in HIS pocket, forcing the Air Force to use his Scottish properties on stays in the area.

Kushner and Ivanka made 82 MILLION on the side the first year they worked at the White House "for free." These grifters are profiting in every conceivable way and the right wing says nothing. https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2018/06/jared-and-ivanka-made-82-million-last-year

As of 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday,April 1st....they’re on their own.

Seabee666 said...

What do they need protection from? I'm sure they're more likely to kill each other than anyone else doing them in. She is not the stalked type, crazyass obsessed men "fall in love" with sweet girl types not dominatrixes. Nobody cares a wit about Harry and their maybe baby. Archie ain't no Prince George.

Long Beach said...

What a bunch of BS here. They were not given (and did not ask for) security from the US upon their move to CA. Trump tweeted about it because he didn't bother checking for details (shocking, I know), and he loves to pretend he 's a big tough guy. The US government does not provide free security to private citizens, which they will be on Wednesday.

Nutty Flavor said...

LOL. The Sussexes love a freebie. Of course they wanted free security from the US, from the Canadians, or from the UK - they're always looking for someone else to pay their bills.

I do love a poster who doesn't believe anything Trump says (understandable) but does believe anything the Sussexes say. Their credibility is at Trump level or below.

mandyR said...

As a brit, i can 100% say we dont want them back! Those 2 are products of YOUR american/hollywood system, so you can raise your own kids (before you say harry is british- he spent more time partying in las vegas and william in california than he did doing anything in his birth country).

linie said...

20k PER DAY???? LOL of course they cannot afford that without burning through their "savings" pretty fast. This is millions per year. These assholes my god

NicQuerica said...

Why the fuck did they even move to the States when they were better protected from the Coronavirus in Canada?? Should have stayed their asses up there if only for the sake of the baby's health!
