AMAC Calls for Peaceful Opposition to Violent Protesters Bent on Anarchy

There is plenty of proof that organized agitators are behind attempts to substitute mob rule for the rule of law

WASHINGTON, DC, Feb 17 – “Anti-government protesters seek to disrupt the work of our nation’s elected officials on a scale never seen before,” says Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.  “And former President Obama says he approves,”

In fact, Weber notes, 10 days after he left office Mr. Obama’s spokesman issued a statement saying, “President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country,”

The AMAC chief points to the fact that the protesters appear to be well organized, earning the moniker, Obama’s Army.  That’s how the New York Times described the phenomenon.

“It is, indeed, a phenomenon because it is a serious breach of the tradition that former presidents do not criticize their successors, at least not to the extent that the current former president is doing.  By his own admission, he is part of an orchestrated movement to turn us into a progressive country.  The group, Organizing For Action, grew out of President Obama’s first campaign for the office.  It has been given new life in the wake of President Trump’s victory in the 2016 Presidential Election.  Its Web site clearly states: ‘OFA is committed to mobilizing and training the next generation of progressive organizers’.”

Weber says that there is “no substantial proof yet” that paid protesters are behind the widespread disruption of the Trump Administration and its elected and appointed officials and supporters.  But, there is plenty of proof that organized agitators are behind attempts to substitute mob rule for the rule of law, proof that organized agitators are taking the lead in the violent intrusions at Republican events.

“However, the vicious and unprecedented nature of the protests does suggest that these are not typical activists who show up to voice their views.  For example, when newly confirmed Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos showed up recently at a Washington DC school she was physically intimidated.  And, it was all caught on camera.  The TV news coverage showed agitators blocked her way in a very intimidating manner similar to how a visiting American official might be greeted in Venezuela.”

Weber also points out that violent protests have been disrupting Republican town hall meetings across the country recently.  And, he says that even some sympathetic observers are shocked at the ferocity and intensity of the protesters.

“But, at the same time, it is incumbent upon us, the silent majority, to let our elected representatives know how we feel on the issues in a respectful and civil manner.  That is why we are growing our grass roots efforts by establishing local Chapters all across the country.  We must counter the efforts of these divisive groups with a show of strength and not allow them to have the center stage and create a false impression that the people are behind them.  There is no place for violent protesters to be permitted to disrupt our society and we call on law enforcement agencies to prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.”

Weber says that there is “no substantial proof yet” that paid protestors are behind the widespread disruption of the Trump Administration and its elected and appointed officials and supporters. What do you call OFA if not a paid and professional protest group? These people are not working for free and their organizing and agitating efforts all take a substantial amount of money to sustain. There are many more groups out there and they have not been hiding what they are doing.

Whatever happened to fighting fire with fire? I’ve argued with my church pastor that NOT ALL prayers are answered and he thinks that prayer IS the answer. I stated that I had been unemployed for 3 years and if I stayed in my room and prayed for a job, I know of no job that’s going to be brought to my door by just praying without my own efforts to go find one. I’ve known of many people who’s prayer for healing from illness went unfulfilled and they died. I also tried using the example of he, as the shepherd of his flock, isn’t going to just fall on his knees and pray if his flock is being attacked by wolves. The shepherd wields his staff to protect his flock from the wolves. Is prayer important, of course! But it should be used to provide guidance in finding the right… Read more »
Unfortunately, today’s clergy has been educated to avoid speaking up politically at all costs. So your experience with your pastor is not unique. Using your analogy if wolves are attacking their flock, today’s shepards will simply stand by as the wolves pick off the flock one by one until all the sheep are gone. Then as the wolves circle the shepard, the shepard will continue to do nothing but pray even as the wolves attack him too. If you are looking to the church to be the cornerstone of a much more active resistance to the professional thugs carrying out these so-called “protests”, you are going to be disappointed. Sorry, but that is just reality of what you can expect from any religious organization today. Tax exempt status seems to supercede a whole lot these days. At some point, after one of these protests gets way out of control, I… Read more »

Here are the Ten Commandments handed down by the 501(c)(3) church’s new lord, the State:

I. Thou shalt not attempt to influence legislation either directly or indirectly.
II. Thou shalt not talk to legislators about legislation
III. Thou shalt not engage in activities related to non legislative decisions, such as opposing or
supporting the issuance of regulations
IV. Thou shalt not make available the results of nonpartisan studies
V. Thou shalt not respond to requests to testify before legislative committees
VI. Thou shalt not support or oppose political candidates
VII. Thou shalt not engage in partisan political campaign activities
VIII. Thou shalt not distribute partisan “voter education” information
IX. Thou shalt not attempt to persuade the public one way or the other on candidates or
X. Thou shalt not allow groups or individuals to use your facilities and equipment to
campaign for candidates

Trump is actually considering repealing the law that would penalize clergy from promoting one candidate over another or one political party over another. There is hope!

you mean, the clergy does not have 1st amendment rights?

That was the first order of business of the communist and socialist organizations. Eliminate all possible mouthpieces of religion which can draw crowds. Then, any other groups have free reign to assault the ears of everyone with their propaganda. This country was organized and founded by meetings in barns, garages, woodsheds, etc. so the progressives needed to eliminate the churches as a possible meeting place against them. If churches want to be tax-exempt, they must remain moot on any topic even remotely linked to a political comment. Isn’t it strange how it is so easy to organize any number of groups that are anti, white, anti church, anti conservative, anti Republican, anti flag, antipatriotic? Does anyone really know how many black organizations there are? Try organizing one white one and see what wrath you will draw. This trend has been in progress for decades, hence the label progressives.

Only liberal clergy.

Not if they want their tax status changed. Maybe under President Trump they will have that right.

There is supposed to be a separation of church and state (govt.) when it comes to politics. At least, that’s what I was taught while in Catholic grade school many moons ago.

The 1st Amendment to the Constitution says, “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion nor stand in the way of the free exercise thereof.” (I may have quoted this 90 percent correctly). Unfortunately, the left, except when it’s their church, has twisted this to mean the if you have faith, keep it to yourself. If that was the case during the Revolutionary War, we never would have won against England.

You may want to ask your teachers if that meant freedom of religion or freedom religion.

For some reason my last sentence didn’t appear as I typed it. Should be
. . . (or freedom from religion).

That separation of church and state was never meant to keep the church out of Washington but to keep Washington from dictating what the church can and cannot do or to tell them what they can and cannot say. AKA: Tell the church what is evil and what is good, what’s right and what’s not. We have the Word of God to tell us that and frankly the constitution was written with the values in that book in mind.

The doctrine of separation of church and state–according to its originator, Thomas Jefferson–was intended to protect the church from the state. See his “Letter to the Danbury Baptist Association”.

See the 10 commandments above!

not if they want to keep their tax exempt status. in my state years ago a small church was closed down for their stand on anti-abortion

Not in 2017 America.

And “who” founded these new “commandments by any chance…..might that be our former president Obama who still thinks he is the “Messiah” come to change and rule the world according to his words???? If so, that man needs to be put in his place rightfully so! I have never heard of a former US president doing what this mental case of a man is doing to our current president and and his administration!! I hope the Trump administration will find things (and there are a lot!) that Obama needs to be brought up on charges, and real soon too. That guy is a looney tune if he thinks he is still POTUS, and so are his followers! Now I am definitely convinced about a psychic’s prediction made back in 2006, and what he said certainly came to pass in 2008 when Obama won the election, and everything he predicted that… Read more »

You are SO right! I live in Baltimore and when I was attacked three times in a four year period by the “Knockout Game”, the police did nothing but tried to blame ME for not being “aware of my surroundings” (two attacks happened in broad daylight and all three had other people present).

Thomas Haj, I am sorry for what you experienced in the “City of Brotherly Love.” I live in the Conservative side of Texas, i.e. small town Texas. We are always looking for some “good folk” to move down should you get tired of how you are being treated there.

Hate to burst your bubble, but why in the world would anyone live or even visit the violent toilet known as Baltimore? ‘Burn me once shame on you; burn me twice shame on me’.

You said a mouthful PaulE. If it hadn’t been for the political activism of the Clergy in 1770, there may never been an American Revolution that gained us our independence from Great Britten. This country might still have been a Monarchy today, rather than a Republic. A part of the problem has been the Johnson Amendment that effectively gagged our Clergy for fear of losing that tax exempt status, you mentioned.

PaulE: You’ve brought up some excellent points. See my response to Rik above for more info.

I agree. We need to fight back. Im sure there are plenty of us who can volunteer our time. Not everything takes money. The Bikets are for Trump and they came out to protect him. We all can do something like that.

Not only are the Bikets for Trump- the Bikers are too!

I agree with you that prayers with direction action cannot be answered. Prayers for guidance and motivation are answered. God is not there to do for us but to guide the actions we take. God bless you and I pray God continues to give you strength and wisdom to solve your personal issues.

Rik, I’m sorry to hear about your friends who were not healed, I have seen the same thing. However, I would say their prayers were answered, just not the answer they wanted (“no” and “wait” are also valid answers from God, as well as “yes”). In some respects they may be better off having been taken out of our fallen world. May I suggest discussing the following with your pastor: with regard to our relationship to government and the proper role of government leaders — Romans 13:1-7; regarding the command to pray for our leaders — I Timothy 2:2; regarding the desire to fight fire with fire — Romans 12:17-21. Let me assure you that God is much greater than any dirty tactics. You may not see it now or in the heat of the moment, but in the end his will will be done on earth, just as in… Read more »

Joe: Thanks for bringing some balance to the discussion. Your thoughts echo mine which I posted to Rik as well.

We just have to remember that God hears our prayers/pleas and yes, He does answer them but sometimes not in the manner we want it to be…our way. Remember too, that God works in mysterious ways…when He answers our prayers, it will or might not be immediately as we’d like to, and often times, we just don’t understand the answers He gives us, but He does answers us. I, too, have prayed fervently for my sick relatives to be healed but they died anyway and it triggered anger in me at first, but then I had to stand back and try to understand why they were taken anyway. It wasn’t God who “inflicted” illness on my loved ones as most people have a tendency to blame Him for it, and I was no different, but that’s how our human lives were meant to be. We all were given “free will”… Read more »

I know what you meant by your post, and I agree with it, but no one chooses a mental illness. I have suffered over 50 years (non stop) from at least four – have been following the changing medical “advice” during each decade for over 40 years, and nothing worked. I never had a bright future, but I did the best I could with what I was given. Unfortunately, I am now paying the price :o(

Tried to reply back to you, but the AMAC censors flagged my response with the dreaded awaiting moderation.

I disagree on the prayer statements. God always answers our prayers. It may be yes, may be no, or it could be wait. The time is not right. Problem is, God doesn’t always answer our prayers the way we want him to answer.

Rik: 1 Peter 3:7 shows us an example of why prayers can be hindered. It’s in the context of marriage and how a husband is to treat his wife. If the husband sins by not treating her with the respect she deserves, that’s sin and the husband’s prayers will be hindered. Prayer must be the first thing regarding an issue such as violent protestors. I don’t mean this in the basic sense of asking God whether or not we should even do anything about it. That would be silly. I’m talking about specifics, timing and sin. For example, read Joshua 6 & 7. The Israelites had just come off of a huge victory at Jericho. Next, they set their sites on Ai. The spies that were sent felt only 2 or 3 thousand men would be needed for victory. The result? The Israelites were routed. Why? It’s not because they… Read more »
Rik De not loose faith. As you know, I was out of a job for eight months and all of a sudden thru prayers, going to mass as much as I can, etc., I finally got a wonderful job, but this lasted only two years, because they were moving to another state. I finally got another job with another company and ended up retired after almost twenty two years. Because of my faith, God is so good to me. So RIK don’t loose faith. Be strong and pray from the heart. As for your pastor, he is right in saying that not all prayers are answered because it how you prays. Some people prays just for the sake of just praying, but it has to come from the heart. So keep on praying and one day, I am sure that God will really answer your prayers. May God bless you.

What you are missing is trust in God He is able–if there was no doubt Rik you’d be surprised to know you could have a job just there in your room. I can tell you this because things like this has happened to me in my life-time. We are to trust and obey HIM

Excellent response, Jean! Trust and obey for there’s no other way!

Remember that as a Pastor, his calling is unique and applicable to only him. It seems to me that your calling may be to form a security squad, not necessarily to attack, but to defend those of differing views from using physical violence. At 5’2″, my calling doesn’t include strength, but my presence and my prayers are for those who must go up to the front lines and fight. God will make this clear to you. And I am praying that I will be beside you when there is an opportunity for the Kingdom of God to come in power, truth, and spirit.

Courtney, unfortunately Pastors are humans and thus so have failings. My Pastor didn’t want me emailing articles where Christians were under attack by the Progressively Communists. Instead, he told the Congregation in his Sunday sermon so and that we should only pray for our country. He doesn’t care about political issues. This is why churches are hypocrites, when do you ever see them band together to protect the Christian baker being sued by gays for declining to make their wedding cake? My Pastor is African American and when I complained about his Black Praise Team singer, who is way too loud causing elderly members to cover their ears, he called me a racist! I guess HE is a Liberal politically speaking, since that is exactly what all Liberals do when you criticize a Black person. Guess what, I can STILL be a Christian in my heart without going to a… Read more »

You are CORRECT!!!!

PaulE, not only OFA, but many many more: The Democracy Alliance with wealthy members such as Soros, Norman Lear, Tom Seyer, Herb Sandler and Peter Lewis put their money into pass-through organizations that fund violent activities. Using so-called dark money, they fund the flow through using the Democratic National Committee. So, the agitation and riots throughout the country from Black Lives Matter, the International Action Center, ANSWER Coalition play out their “grassroots” pretention using additional funding from the likes of the Tides, Ford, Carnegie, Rockefeller foundations and others. Black Lives Matter groups like Org. for Black Struggle and Missorians for Reform and Empowerment, both led by communists/Markists, with avowed community organizers within, and MORE (above) just a renamed Missouri chapter of ACORN. Do not forget about Move On. org. Also, the Community Action Network has run employment Ads for full-time organizers at $15 per hour. MORE’s rent-a-mob activities have already… Read more »
Hi Ivan, Exactly. The assertion by Mr. Weber in this article that there is no substantial proof of paid protestors being at the core of the various well-staged events carried out across the country simply isn’t credible. Dozens or hundreds of people showing up with identical, professionally made signs, all shouting the same rants and slogans, all in unison, for the TV cameras isn’t an example of a spontaneous off the cuff protest by a few like-minded locals. It is however evidence that someone, be it a well-funded individual or though one of their organizations, took the time to plan all aspects of the protest, have all the signs professionally prepared, choreographed the chants and actions to be used, notified the sympathetic press to be on hand to record the protest for later used by the media and finally arranged for all the protestors to all be transported to and… Read more »

Ivan…..you couldn’t be MORE FACTUALLY CORRECT! THANKS.

There ought to be a law against these “evil” groups or corporations from spewing their evil throughout our country, or cities and states, and their organizers should all be arrested and put in prison ! This whole world is just going downhill!!! Are there any true Americans left or have most of them been “bought and paid for” by these evil groups/people???

Hate to burst your bubble, but folks have the right to protest whether they are paid to do so or not. You are barking up the wrong tree. The only way to counter protests of any kind is for the good guys to outnumber the bad guys. Unfortunately, most good guys can’t be bothered to get off of their collective fat azzes to change the TV channel, much less to show up at a opposition protest.

That about sums it up. Sadly lots of talk, little action. Which makes it harder to effect positive change with our weak-willed Congressional folks.

I believe the funding has actually been credited to an activist group supported by George Soros and friends. These protester are bums hired and bussed to wherever needed. I think the proof is there but money has much power. Ideally this man needs to be deported for his evil corruption against America.

The fact that Obama approves of the protesters and the disruptions is nothing new. The EX President should be brought up on TREASON. He has been saying, and doing things and making every effort to undermine and destroy our Great Country since the day he walked into the People’s House in Washington, D. C. He has been a most arrogant and despicable person, and continues to be since his departure.

Some conservative media are suggesting that Trump’s national security advisor, Mr Flynn, who resigned recently, is the victim of a “political assassination .”

I believe Mr. Flynn was a victim of a political assassination as you mentioned, by Obama and cronies. President Trump has launched an investigation to uncover this problem. When Obama left office, in his farewell speech, he mentioned that he will be living in Washington for 2 years until his younger daughter finishes school, but he also said “he is not out, in fact, he was just getting started.” He also signed an EO giving his people in Washington the right to “put roadblocks in Trump;s path” just days before his time was up as president. What an evil person!!!!! I’ve never heard of any other former president who stooped so low as this man did!!! America’s first black (or half black) president and he ruined it for himself…he deserves it too!!

Jim, you are so right. He hates this country and the American people.

I think Obama needs to be observed very closely and the minute he is caught “with his hand in the cookie jar of wrong-doing” he should be arrested and brought up on charges for the many crimes he committed while president…he is not above the law! And you are right, Jim, about him being a “most arrogant and despicable person,” and isn’t shy about showing it either!!!! I think he became even more arrogant when Trump won the election, and probably mad as hell too that Hillary did not win, to continue on with his socialist change for the country. He sure pulled a fast one over the American people when he won the first election and believed he had us all “in the bag” so he could spin his evil web over our country and into the hearts and minds of weak-minded people who took him for the “Messiah.”… Read more »

No doubt Obama and George Soros behind this anarchy.President Trump has got more positive things done in four weeks than Obama in eight years.obama will be known as the most devisive and incompetent president ever.No accomplishments for the good of our country.

James – Trump did more real positive things for our country before assuming the Presidency than the imam-in-chief did over eight years. Unfortunately, the “unbiased” left will re-write the history books to make him the best president ever.

It’s not just Obama that’s in George Soros” pocket but several of the Democrats who are still in office in Washington and shamefully, some of the weakling Republicans who probably see President Trump on a daily basis while doing their daily business! It is such a shame and embarrassing to boot, that the names of those people have been exposed! Mud in their faces!

the protesters arrested for violent protesting should have follow up the same way police do with drug dealers, where if you give up the next person above you in the chain of command, we will cut you loose. this will lead you to the top trouble maker whether it be george soros or obama himself.

Do you want to know why there are so many “leaks” coming from the Trump administration. It’s was planned by Obama! About 2 weeks prior to leaving office, Obama changed the rules for the NSA. The NSA is the agency that listens to all the phone calls, text messages, computers etc. They had strict rules about disseminating this raw information to the other 16 intelligence agencies. Under Obama’s new order, the NSA releases all the raw data to those 16 agencies. The left wing has “friends” in many of those agencies who give them the data. That’s why Trump’s phone calls with Mexico, Australia, etc. were given to the biased media within hours. Try to stop all those leaks. Obama is trying to form a shadow government!

Obama has no business doing what he is doing and should be brought up on charges. He is just one, arrogant, despicable, vindictive person who doesn’t know when to quit and I hope he gets caught in his dirty act! And those people in the NSA should be exercising common sense and do their jobs honestly or lose it. Is Obama, by any chance, “paying” his”spies” to do that, or are those people so enthralled in Obama that they would do anything he tells them? Sad, sad, sad for this country!!!! I hope President Trump exposes them!!!!

Check out Nextnewsnetwork feeds on YouTube. They’ve done at least one video on Obama’s attempts at a shadow government. (He is living in a mansion only blocks from the White House, ostensibly to enable one of his kids to complete her education.) Why can’t she complete the education elsewhere, one may ask?🤔

For the simple reason that he needs an “excuse” to remain in Washington, maybe? So he can carry on his “dirty work” against Trump’s administration and maybe so he can also have better control of those in Washington who are doing his bid??? What a sick man, and a mental one at that!

A convenience for both reasons. First Lady and young son remain in NYC for him to finish a school year with less disruption.

Bet George Soros & Barak Obama are not submitting 1099’s & W2’s on the paid agitators. If not they should be arrested & prosecuted

They should be anyhow.

George is proof that only the GOOD die young.

We live in such a lawless society! Disrespect for authority. Pride and arrogance is running rapid. I am tired of hearing, “I HAVE RIGHTS”! This ‘RIGHTS” stuff has progressed into a license to do, ‘ANYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE THAT THEY WANT’. You also have responsibilities, duties, consequences and obligations in an ordered society! These people have been taught to ‘do your own thing’. Relativism! Out right disregard for following the law. Most of these liberal progressives lefties believe they are either above the law or are the law! There is very little swift justice in our society anymore. The college educated professional lawyers and courts play at law not uphold their duty to execute (enforce) the law. The criminal mind sees this and says, what’s the worst they can do to me. Judges have a duty to protect the rest of the law abiding innocent people in society! People who… Read more »

What the “unbiased” media won’t tell you is that that neighborhood in Baltimore where all the violence started was one where the liberal politicians threw in over a billion dollars to “prove”, once and for all times, that throwing enough money at a problem really DOES work!

Duane, I couldn’t agree with you more! You’ve hit the nail right on the head of what ails this country and it’s people, and I think it would be such a headache just to figure things out and try to make heads or tails of it all! It seems as though “anyone who thinks he/she is someone and has a little money and lots of ego” can go off spewing that their way of thinking is the way to go, should be held accountable for the wrong message they’ve passed along to like-minded people like themselves. It’s almost like “starting a rumor” and when it’s passed to other persons, by the time it gets to the 3d person, the original message is completely skewed into something far out in left field somewhere. This is what’s happened and it’s been left for too long for some responsible person or persons to… Read more »

THIS IS NOT FAKE NEWS!! George Soros is and has been the Obama Puppet Master for 8+ yrs. He has taken over the Democrat Party, and is financing, setting up all these organizations to tear down America, so he can walk in as King Soros, the greatest puppeteer. Money! Greed! and Power! Our only hope is that “CHRIST” comes, before America falls and we are servants to the Devil himself! Wake Up ALL you Good GOD believing people, before it is too late!!

He’s part of the elite cartel. Look up “Rich Man’s Trick”.

Walk softly and carry a big stick.

Walk softly, be kind to others, and carry at least a 9mm….. :-)

Need proof !!! Where are these passive people hiding in bunkers ?? Just look anywhere you chose to get you information and the vile the nut job media is spewing out . Mr. President don’t listen to these nuts stop talking and engaging and continue pressing on your thank less job . There is much work to be done you will NOT get any help from those who say their are even in your own party , you will be questioned at every turn by these passive people and you knew all along will will never get help from the nut job media . You will deal with so called Americans who will leak top secerts to the harm of this great land for their own evil purposes .

Is it not time to stop feeding into the narrative that these groups are “progressive”? They think that by avoiding describing themselves as “socialists” they can disguise their socialist agenda by calling themselves “progressives”, a hijacked term for advancing something “positive”. Unless we are willing to change the narrative, we will assist them in “progressing” this country over the cliff.

I long for the day when conservatives finally wake up and make inroads into our “unbiased” media so that real news can get out!

Don’t hold your breath……

What the Muslim/Communist Obama and his Dhimmicrat Party pals are doing is nothing less than insurrection. Treat it accordingly.

I have nothing against genuine protest, it’s part of our Constitutional freedom. THIS garbage is not protest. This is paid for violence organized by Globalists who seek to destroy this country.

Setting up an obstructive “shadow government” within the legal government, rigging elections and thundering constant anti-American hate through the media is revolt. Calling for armed resistance and assassinations and rioting, looting, burning and assaulting people to force political change is revolt.

Open fire when they get violent. Arrest the revolutionaries calling for the end of the Constitution. Then watch the Safe Spacers slink back into their cubby holes to curl up around their coloring books and sip warm mother’s milk to reassure themselves.

Sounds bloody minded? No, it’s national survival and We the People have a RIGHT to defend ourselves.

I have been hearing the term “sedition” being used to describe what Barry and pals are doing. From the definition I read that may fit. This is very serious indeed.

This worked at Kent State where the police finally responded to increasingly violent student protests. I remember my dad (who I thought stupid back then) said that the protests would finally end – and he was correct!

It sure did work. The anarchists disappeared for a long time which was badly needed relief for the rest of us who don’t go around rioting when we don’t get our way. The famous picture of the girl crying out in agony over the dead body of another was a great picture but they never expected armed resistance. Now, if we did that, our alt-left MSM would never live it down and the life of the national guardsman would be a living hell.

When bad people know they won’t be punished severely, they only get worse. There always was a leftist contingent in the main stream media but there were more patriots back then, at least for a while.

What is shocking about these protests is the unchallenged violence allowed. We all know where the funding comes from so why do we allow this man( George Soros ) to remain in the U.S.. Deport the enemy of our nation. Also law enforcement needs to really clamp down

Law enforcement takes its orders from political leaders. Liberal leaders won’t be having any ‘clamp down’, period. Elections have consequences and this is one of them. ‘We have met the enemy and he is us’ – Pogo.

Soros has been thrown out of several European and Asian countries for destroying economies and/or promoting violence.

Back in the 60s when people were protesting the war they sent in the national guard and the police and broke up the protests. These vial ignorant people should not be allowed to intimidate burn or break anything or anyone. The moment they do they should be arrested, tear gassed or blasted with water!

Perhaps there might come that time for President Trump to call in the National Guard troops to help restore law and order in this country! Things are just getting out of hand and he should also go after the leaders of those causing the problems and get them arrested too. Who needs foreign terrorists when we have our own “homegrown” idiots causing all the problems??? God help us and America!

There is no other way to put this than it is an antiAmerican effort to turn our Republic into a socialistic one. Former President Obama has given us eight years of rhetoric and executive orders that are opposed to the values that America was founded on. President Trump may not be the most elegant speaker but he understands the problems created by the former Administration and is determined to restore America’s greatness.

I thank DENNIS, immensely, because he hit the reason for all of the protests – George Soros pulling the strings on Obama and the rest of the left wing. Nothing more need be said re who is behind this. The American people (have to admit by their votes) gave Soros the room to go deeper into destroying America by the Obummer administration spreading his socialism. The last four years almost put the “last nail” in the coffin, but along came Donald Trump!! In reality, the hysteria also represents fear of the Trump administration! Remember – Trump in his own words is going to “drain the swamp”. Now all the snakes are gasping for air,, because the poison is being removed!! Last, but not least, I’m extremely disappointed re what Dan Weber said about no proof that these are planned and paid for riots, This is a low blow to all… Read more »

Look at Obama and Soros for funding, training, giving locations to agitate. This is not normal with paid agitators burning, damaging and attacking people. If this is not brought under control soon, people might start dying from those who are targeted for attacks.

I imagine there will be a lot of unhappy protestors one of these fine days…

Our lives are just “collateral damage” to the left. BTW, leftists live in areas not subject to said violence.

Under LBJ in the 60’s a law was passed that clergy cannot be political or their church will loose their not for profit status. President Trump has lifted that law recently from what I am reading online (God Bless him!!) I know, I’m retired clergy. I was in a meeting outside of church where there was another clergyman who refused to give his name because, “I do not want the IRS to know who I am and take my church away.” It appears, if you are Black clergy, this does not apply. For the last few years at least, IRS agents have been in the congregations monitoring from what I read.

Trump cannot “lift” the law of which you speak (the Johnson Amendment given to the IRS code in 1954 by then Senator Lyndon Johnson)m only Congress can repeal it. Trump has vowed to push them on it, using his usual flowery rhetoric of “destroying it”. While I see no value in all of our churches becoming political hotbeds (instead of just a few higher profile Black churches), which could in fact invite additional regulation down the road, it would be good to get rid of the double standard that exists now.

“Heartened”? Change that to “AGITATING”. The obamanation is a community agitator. His “reign” as president is over but he doesn’t think that. He is trying to run a shadow government using the uniformed and gullible. His administration did as much as possible to tear down the country and usurp the Constitution. He is a traitor, plain and simple. The time for PC is over. Call him what he is…

The ObeyMe followers here in Baltimore are doing everything possible to violently harass Trump and his supporters!

And it is only going to get worse…..

I will attest to the efficacy of the idea for prepared non-violent resistence to these organized violent protests. On March 17, 2007 I took part in a Gathering of Eagles (G.O.E.) protecting our national monuments, especially the Vietnam War Memorial, from being defaced by anti-war activists from A.N.S.W.E.R. (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism). A.N.S.W.E.R.’s goal was to disrupt Washington, shut down the government and deface National Monuments which they felt glorified war and the racist policies of the United States. Just showing up was enough to prevent the protesters from seeking to destroy monuments which were erected to the memories of those who sacrificed liberty, family and in too many cases their lives in order to defend Our Nation. The protesters numbered between 10 and 20 thousand, while the Gathering of Eagles showed up with 50k plus. There was no violence on the part of the G.O.E.… Read more »
