Anti-Obama rally organizers release radio jingle, fear Obama drone attack

Published

on

A spokesman for a group that hopes to oust President Barack Obama from office by rallying next week in Washington fears the president will attack participants with a drone strike.

Terry Trussell, chief of staff for Operation American Spring, told “Patriot Nation” radio host Mark Hoffman that organizers are “expecting the unexpected,” reported Right Wing Watch – including a possible drone strike.

The conservative radio host warned protesters to be prepared for the worst if they attended the May 16 rally, which organizers have claimed would draw 10 million – possibly even 30 million – participants.

“People are going to be down there for days, (and) I said you might want to bring a bug-out bag of sorts, because you never know what’s going to happen down there, you may have to run for your life,” Hoffman warned. “It may never happen, they just go peacefully, these guys may step down and we’ll all pat each other on the back and say ‘God bless America, let’s get back to the Constitution and move on.’”

But he still advised participants to bring emergency supplies, walkie-talkies, and stay in small groups to remain safe from pro-government agents.

“Get together and stay together and be safe, always keep your eyes open because I’m sure there’s going to be people from the liberal-left-progressive side, the Marxists, the anti-freedom and liberty people, in the crowd starting trouble, that’s almost a guarantee,” Hoffman said.

Trussell claimed the group had a liaison with law enforcement agencies and would work in cooperation with them to stop disruptive forces.

“We’ve got some strategies in place that can shut them down so fast and so completely that there won’t be any problems like that,” Trussell said.

The event organizer warned Obama that an attack on his opponents would most likely backfire.

“Now if something bigger happens, you know, they can pull in drones, but when the government destroys the capital just to get rid of us, I think it’s going to work to their discredit,” Trussell said.

The group has released a radio jingle to promote the event, the latest in a series intended to drive the president from office.

So long, Steve King: 9-term white supremacist GOP congressman from Iowa loses primary

Published

on

U.S. Congressman Steve King, a nine-term Republican of Iowa, has just lost his primary to a GOP challenger. It's a huge fall from grace: In 2014 The Des Moines Register labeled the former earth-moving company founder a "presidential kingmaker."

But his racist, white nationalist, white supremacist, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic, homophobic, transphobic, biphobic remarks and disturbing ties to far right radical European politicians – including one he endorsed who has ties to a neo-Nazi, finally caught up with him.

When the president’s son-in-law truly was a great success

Published

on

For many Americans, the idea of the president tasking his son-in-law with solving national, even international, crises, seems problematic, if not absurd. But it happened once before and turned out to be the kind of “great success story” our current first family wants us to believe in again. Slightly over a century ago, as the US mobilized for the First World War, the nation faced devastating breakdowns of its financial and transport systems. In response, President Woodrow Wilson leaned heavily on his talented and experienced Treasury Secretary, William McAdoo, who just happened to be his son-in-law. Looking back at this episode tells us a lot about what makes for successful emergency management at the highest levels of government.

Here are 7 ways Donald Trump is just like Henry Ford — and why that’s not good for American democracy

Published

on

On May 21, speaking at the Ford Motor Company’s Rawsonville plant in Ypsilanti, Michigan, Donald Trump paid his latest homage to Henry Ford, lauding the family’s “good bloodlines” with Ford’s great grandson sitting in the front row.

Ford, like Trump, was obsessed with bloodlines—with the idea that race and genetic origins determined who counted as the “best people.”
