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.

Published

on

CNN aired a panel that featured “Republican women” defending President Trump’s racist tweets, but failed to mention that they were actually part of a pro-Trump group whose members the network had interviewed in the past.

Ben Carson is Donald Trump’s faulty human shield against accusations of racism

Published

on

Ben Carson is back in the news — after another long absence — because Donald Trump has once again been accused of racism.

This article originally appeared at Salon.

The secretary of Housing and Urban Development is the only African-American member of the president’s Cabinet, and is often trotted out to clean up after Trump makes a mess too obviously problematic for the media to ignore. While Trump has tried to spin his recent racist attacks on four progressive freshman congresswomen as a strategic maneuver meant to manipulate Democratic infighting to his advantage, Carson's re-emergence from his stupor should be a clear indication that the president’s team recognizes the damage that can be caused by his unforced errors.

An illegal trend could be emerging after Trump let Kellyanne Conway off the hook for breaking federal law

Published

on

Federal workplaces are supposed to be free of politics, but a Trump administration appointee used a government forum Wednesday to express support for the president’s reelection.

At a conference on religious freedom hosted by the State Department, an official told the crowd of several hundred people that “hopefully he will be reelected,” referring to President Donald Trump.

It’s illegal for federal employees to engage in political activities while they are on the job.

“It’s a violation of the Hatch Act for a federal official, to say in her official capacity, to hope that the president will be reelected,” said Kathleen Clark, an expert on legal ethics at the Washington University in St. Louis.
