It is obvious you want to fight the good fight. It is also obvious you are not equipped to do so. You continually infer that which does not exist.
Secret Service agents are not "executive or judicial officers" of either "the United States or of the several states." Therefore, you contention that Secret Service agents shall be bound by Article VI to support the Constitution is incorrect.
By the way, Article VI, paragraph three (properly quoted) states, "The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."

Dear J. Ashley: I don't have the "existing Constitution" committed to memory. So, I had to scan such to locate Article VI. "... all executive and judicial officers, both of the USA and the several states shall be bound by oath or affirmation to support this constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification for any office or public trust under the United States." That OATH requires supporting that the USA is a REPUBLIC. As soon as Barack Obama started appointing czars and making executive orders pushing the USA toward socialism and communism, all officers, such as the Secret Service, are bound by the Constitution to ARREST his skinny ass for treason! Tens of thousands in our military have died fighting socialist and communist nations. So, why won't any one fight the grave enemy bastard who is in our midst? It's because people in government value their identity with... power. Doing WRONG makes one seem more powerful than doing right, "because the glory in doing right must always be shared with its unspoken moral imperative." Jonathan, for a shallow anarchist like you, you seem incapable of understanding that the spirit of the overall Constitution has deference over any "authorization". The Founding Fathers erred, big time, when they just assumed the laws and procedures passed and approved wouldn't run counter to this most simple premise: "Fair play and democracy shall have supremacy in the USA!"

The senate is an oligarchy that slaps-in-the-face our Representative Republic. Since principles of FAIRNESS are so evident throughout the main body of the Constitution, then, the VICTOR in disputes has to be the side favoring fair play and democracy! The mere fact that the senate was included in the Constitution doesn't make that constitutional! Just because 'laws' are passed doesn't make those constitutional, either. The US Senate has been a drag of fair play and democracy from day one!

Since there has never been a parity of the population served by each senator, that means the USA has two conflicting political systems, and the oligarchy is the one which isn't FAIR. Giving undue power to smaller population states slaps REPUBLIC ideas in the face. So, the US Senate is and always has been, unconstitutional.The Senate -- by definition -- cannot be unconstitutional. What you (continue) fail to grasp is that the Constitution is/was an agreement between Sovereign States. The Senate is THEIR representative body.
