Editor’s Comment: It is safe to say that things are unraveling. While a good self-defense strategy is a always a good thing for individuals to think through – many politicians are now taking things to the next level. With the population sufficiently riled up to a near revolutionary point, and President Trump raising the bar for acceptable extremes in politics, many of the elected officials and appointed bureaucrats who sold the American public on a failed Obamacare plan are now fearful that they could be targeted at political events or out of control demonstrations against forced health care or any other policy. Republicans involved in repealing the legislation are also fearful, and part of the left has become violent and anarchistic.
In addition to personal body guards and considerable distance from the general public, politicians are now considering exit drills for public events including extra points of retreat in case things go too far. But when things are this far gone, no one can guarantee that violence won’t occur. It is a sign of the times, a time of revolutionary discontent. Let’s just hope someone sensible is ready to hold back the political vacuum that will occur when the establishment is uprooted. The tail can sting as sharply as the head that bites. For better or worse, everything is changing, and people in all parts of society had better prepare for the unexpected, the unstable and the potential for widespread violence and unrest.
Politicians Are Now Making Plans in Case the Public Turns Against Them Violently
by James Holbrooks
As protests continue to break out all around the nation over President Donald Trump’s desire to scrap Obamacare, Politico reported Tuesday that many politicians are beginning to worry about their own personal safety — to the point where some are having private sessions to discuss the matter.
Citing sources who were in the room, Politico writes:
“House Republicans during a closed-door meeting Tuesday discussed how to protect themselves and their staffs from protesters storming town halls and offices in opposition to repealing Obamacare.”
Some of the suggestions, the news outlet reports, include “having a physical exit strategy at town halls, or a backdoor at congressional offices to slip out of, in case demonstrations turn violent; having local police monitor town halls; replacing any glass office-door entrances with heavy doors and deadbolts; and setting up intercoms to ensure those entering congressional offices are there for appointments, not to cause chaos.”
While protests are popping up all over, the Republicans’ private session was no doubt prompted by events that happened over the weekend. While speaking before a raucous crowd in Roseville, California, Representative Tom McClintock had to be escorted from the stage and away from the event by local police officers.
McClintock, who held town hall meetings during the politically volatile days of both the Tea Party and Occupy movements, told The Hill he’s never seen anything like it:
“This was something very different. After an hour, the incident commander for the Roseville Police Department advised us the situation was deteriorating and felt it necessary to get me out of the venue. That’s never happened before.”
This sentiment appeared to be echoed at Tuesday’s closed-door session. Commenting on the meeting, Republican Study Committee Chairman Mark Walker of North Carolina stated:
“The message was: One, be careful for security purposes. Watch your back. And two, be receptive. Honor the First Amendment, engage, be friendly, be nice. Because it is toxic out there right now. Even some of the guys who have been around here a lot longer than I have, have never seen it to this level.”
Sources told Politico that the potential for violence is serious enough, in fact, that the House sergeant-at-arms has asked congressional offices to report any threat. That office is also passing out manuals on best practices to keep staffers safe.
Ironically, the backlash over the possible repeal of Obamacare that Republicans are facing now is similar to the backlash faced by Democrats years back as they were trying to force Obamacare into law.
“It’s not that you run from protesters,” Representative David Reichert of Washington said during an interview after the meeting, “but if someone presents some sort of physical threat or are espousing a verbal threat that could lead to a physical threat, if you feel that you’re in danger and your staff is in danger, call 911 and leave and go out the back door.”
In other words…run. Call the cops and run.

Fearful Politicians Now Prepping In Case “Public Turns Violent Against Them”
Fk’n right they ought to be scared, and rightfully so!
“If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ James Madison
The designated scpegoat-lightning rod ‘enemy’ only serves zionist interests- not ours’.
Muslims didnt draft ObamaCare. Neither did they stand down on 911 or bailout the Banks in 2008 to tune of TRILLIONS.
The Muslims have a long history of peaceful non aggression against other nations.
They prefer to keep to themselves and leave others along if they aren’t being provoked or attacked.
We need to start dealing with them this way before they quit doing what we tell them to do and do something else instead.
Oh, indubitably! Islam’s long history of peaceful goes back to the 7th century–as the koran itself will attest:
Surah 4:89 -“Those who reject Islam must be killed. If they turn back (from Islam), take (hold of) them and kill them wherever you find them…”
Surah 8:12: Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.”
Surah 8:65: O Messenger, rouse the Believers to the fight. If there are twenty amongst you, patient and persevering, they will vanquish two hundred: if a hundred, they will vanquish a thousand of the Unbelievers: for these are a people without understanding.
Surah 9:5: When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. If they repent and take to prayer and render the alms levy, allow them to go their way. God is forgiving and merciful.
Surah 9:29 Fight those who believe neither in God nor the Last Day, nor what has been forbidden by God and his messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even if they are People of the Book, until they pay the tribute and have been humbled.
Surah 9:73: O Prophet, fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh upon them. And their refuge is Hell, and wretched is the destination.
Surah 9:123: O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty (unto Him).
Surah 9:124: And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
Surah 47:4: Now when ye meet in battle those who disbelieve, then it is smiting of the necks until, when ye have routed them, then making fast of bonds; and afterward either grace or ransom till the war lay down its burdens. That (is the ordinance).
Surah 2:91 And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.
Surah 4:76 Those who believe fight in the cause of God, and those who reject faith fight in the cause of evil. –
Koran 5:33: The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter .
“When you enter any village (or community) and stay in it, you will have a share in it. Any village (or community) which its people disobey Allah and His Messenger, the one fifth (20%) of its lands will be for Allah and His Messenger and then will be for you .” (Hadith Sahih Bukhari, No. 1775)
Surah 2: 106 We do not abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten except that We bring forth [one] better than it or similar to it. Do you not know that Allah is over all things competent?
And, my personal favorite:
5:12 Allah made a covenant of old with the Children of Israel and We raised among them twelve chieftains, and Allah said: Lo! I am with you. If ye establish worship and pay the poor-due, and believe in My messengers and support them, and lend unto Allah a kindly loan, surely I shall remit your sins, and surely I shall bring you into Gardens underneath which rivers flow. Whoso among you disbelieveth after this will go astray from a plain road.
Guess Allah’s a little short of cash…
Peace, love and flowers in your hair (inshallah)…
I read in the comment section of the Tom McClintock article that he did not request police protection. It was a comment by the Roseville Police PR department spokesperson.
That being said, the proper response to Lefty Libs is this:
“Eff you. War.”
No airhead. Proper response is to hunt down those at the top- NOT each other
ignorance isn’t going to get anyone out,you error on muslims beign innocent.history says they tried to take over india and kill them or convert them but the e.indians balled up and anialated the b’s .sound familar?going on while you sit on yer duff ,alien’s don’t have rights in the u.s.a..understand?
We are very likely to turn against them. Bunch of dishonest crooks!
Let us know when they start cutting down the trees in the parks and removing the lamp posts, then we’ll know they’re really concerned.
“Run. Call the cops and run.” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Those political POS would be dead meat before any cops arrived. When it’s really seconds that count, police are always at least minutes away.
am i the only one who can’t even watch a movie….or even a commercial anymore, without seeing the actors as somebody that’s been a nevertrumper, always ranting about how he’s not a legitimate president and all? i won’t be going to a concert, movie, or even watch mainstream media for a LONG time….now to the point, i don’t take ANYthing they say seriously anymore, and i will just BET we are going to see a serious dent in revenues from movies, concert, and news stations…..and even computer companies won’t sell as much as they used to, because they have alienated themselves…it will hit them in their pocketbooks…..they are exposed as just ordinary people……and i think(wish, i suppose) that they have shot themselves in the head. they are going against HALF of the population….i just can’t imagine how they think this won’t SERIOUSLY damage their careers.
You are not the only one that feels that way.
am I the only one who cant understand why people still watch TELEVISION? Or consume / pay for their corrupt Roman Circus media?
I understand it completely–haven’t watched the idiot box in nearly ten years. Came to, see it as an indoctrination machine from which the average person receives his “education”…
Amen to everything you said. ?
BCOD, if all the important people are saying it maybe it’s true.
I haven’t seen anyone’s career damaged yet, they seem to be getting along better than ever.
My go to thing to get rid of the days stress is to watch my favorite movies. Iron Man and The Avengers are my favorite of all time. Now when I watch it and Im trying to get into their characters because i’ve seen them play many others, all I start to think about is their political opinions and that retarded commercial bashing President Trump. So now I just get upset when I see them and it totally sucks. so.. thanks for RUINING MY FAVORITE MOVIES, keep your opinions to yourself next time. You guys are no longer my Heroes : (
my sentiments EXACTLY.
COUNT ON IT, it is well deserved.
They should look at every single lamp post and be thinking, “That could be my next / last permanent address”.
It seems to me the politicians of left that are leading the brainwashed children and useful idiots are the ones that should be worried if they manage to get a civil war started. They are going to have to flee America to hide because the inner cities will not be safe for anyone and normal people outside of the cities will be waiting for them with blood in their eyes. A civil war is always a crappy deal for everyone but for American socialists it will be a real eye opener when they find out the old saying of a gun behind every blade of grass is a understatement.
They can run, but they can’t hide. We’ll get them.
There are people on the Left that you will never satisfy. So you have to give them a better deal that works for them to pacify. Both republican and democrat party’s better get it together for the betterment of the people instead of their politics of enriching their lives beyond reality.
Those politicians that are buying property in other lands better stay there if they leave in times of crisis.
You can’t hide. Someone will remember your face or name.
Has to give you caution when our politicians are still thinking Bush is President and Putin has invaded North Korea. Dim Wits.
Don’t like the idea of republicans taking campaign contributions from Soros.
I see a Kennedy is running for mayor and I’m sure Chelsea will make a run in politics. Is there another Bush in the wings?
Anon, I don’t give a shit about pacifying any libturd or RINO. These politicians are bringing the threats on themselves. Their day of reckoning is coming.
There is said to be 95 million Americans out of work. I read there are calls to replace all white workers with illegals. So white people expect too much, an actual job that pays enough to live. Give us your poor huddled poverty stricken peons because the pittance we pay them is graciously accepted.
That was Billy Kristol making the comment about illegals and white workers. He’s been an idiot for some time, now.
Smokey, I’d love to have a shot at that disgusting chew Kristol. He’s always been a retard.
Aljamo, there’s nothing wrong with trying to have enough to have a decent standard of living. And those scum calling for white people to be kicked out of their jobs? Don’t let me encounter any of them because I WON’T PLAY NICE.
these ‘scum’ are SAYANIM dual national jews- who control most of American society. Same who ripped us in 2008 trillion $ bailout and have bankrupted us in their endless M.E wars.
Know your enemy- its not each other
I was checking downdetector last night for complaints about snap/ebt (foodstamps) and there have been a slew of complaints about their accounts being dry due to glitches. There are always some complaints but there are more than usual. These folks are so dependent on that trickle of money every month. Some say they are starving or have no food for their many children. Every once in awhile, someone comes on there and tells them the truth… that they had better find a plan b, because this welfare system is fated to come to a grinding and ugly halt.
anon… the likely next Bush to be foisted upon America is Jeb’s son George Prescott Bush, wow three evil names wrapped into yet another Bush criminal. Akin to the plague resurfacing.
The establishment politicians created the monsters. Reminds me of an old black and white version of Frankenstein. The castle is surrounded by the peasants with torches and pitchforks while the dead/not-dead monster rampages within the walls. Yeah, they ought to be afraid. Just like they need to pay the price for what they’ve done.
More than 30% of the House and Senate is said to be linked to the pedofile case known as pizzagate. Chuck Shumer was one name I recall hearing. Arrests are supposed to be happening soon. I think these perverts are probably more concerned about having their crimes against children come to light.
Children grow up. Chances are there are some seriously pissed off former victims, whose vengeance may be emboldened by current events.
__ sick bastards
B from ca, if what you say is true these Demons need to be hung or beheaded within 30 days. Tell me where to look up that article. Thanks
They use films of the politicos pedophilia to blackmail them also. Easy to control and never say no. The chews ain’t stupid.
Now with Sessions in at Justice “Pizzagate” may get some traction and Wiener may go down!
no extradition treaty w/ Israel, so he’ll run free like POLLARD dog
“Children grow up. Chances are there are some seriously pissed off former victims, whose vengeance may be emboldened by current events.”
I don’t think people that evil allow witnesses. Wonder who their victims are? Look at a milk carton.
Hey look…A politician running like hell. Never seen anything like this.
B from CA, congress is overdue for some ‘house cleaning’. Should cut down on some problems.
President Trump just signed an executive order. “Pedophiles will get a quick trial and the death penalty.”
Lefties prepping. Imagine that.
Doomsday bunkers with Starbucks and sushi bars.
And airsoft guns lol.
Remember, the only reason why Obama was able to get pretty much what he wanted was that he was the first black president and that was used to perhaps pass illegal laws.
Now everything has changed; with someone in the Oval Office that is adhering to the rule of law, to the Constitution, it is a bitter pill to swallow for many on the left and the far left.
I think everyone here feels that trouble within the land is about to unfold. And that trouble is to undermine our way of life and overthrow of the government. I actually believe that forces are forming to cause the country to split into different factions. That must not be allowed. The country must continue whole because divided, we will be conquered from the outside.
just my opinion.
Naw I want a division let us shed the left and right coast. Make the Fly over region into its own nation. Let mexico have southern calif.
I am a hardcore conservative. Born in California.
POS liberals have destroyed my state over the last 40 years.
Don’t give up on me!
I’ll fight to save The U.S.A.
Fight with me!!!
Shed the North East and the entire West Coast would be fine with me.
No let them have California, we keep the rest!
we all should join these left protests. if we gain their trust and move up the chain….
how much fun can you have sitting in the back of a marxist bus, going to their shit rally? with my 9mm and 5 20 round clips, that would be the most patriotic bus ride ever!
i think were really overlooking an opportunity here.
Eisenhower was the son of a black mother and “chew” father.
Obama was not the first.
Watching and waiting:
President Eisenhower was the son of Ida, a black woman.
B, ur so …
you the same one that called Nathan Bedford Forrest a J*w ???
what in the world is wrong with you??????
I dispute your ridiculous claim “President Eisenhower was the son of Ida, a black woman”
Here is the story.
Much is unknown but it is assumed that there was a black ancestor.
Whenever I want the straight skinny on American history, I too, seek the counsel of Rastafarians–world renowned for their vast knowledge of our nation’s past…
Just heard that Trump got turned down.Looks like the Judges could be added to this list.Pretty plain to see what these Obutthole commie Judges are doing,stalling for time to get enough muslimes in to try to take us down.TRUMP GET TOUGH! screw these damn commie courts protect us like you promised.
You have a gun to protect yourself. LOL @ the government protecting you.
Are you a sissy liberal?!?!?!?!?!?
A case of self-inflicted startle disorder.
A US Senator condemns the newly appointed Attorney General and former colleague for the support of manufacturing jobs for Americans.
Same Constitutional subversion from the 9th Circuit Judges who throws out babies with bath water. Neither has figured out what the definition of is, is?
I guess all the foreign campaign contributions buys more than honoring the OATH of Office!
T r E a S o N???? Nope, just another Lefty justifiable day. And they wonder why Americans voted in MASS for TRUMP.
This Senator and the 9th Circuit Judges are waging Economic Warfare against Americans who expect our Taxpayer money after swearing an OATH to Uphold The Constitution. How are we supposed to feel, HAPPY?
Hey, GOP we voted to REPEAL!
And not replace. Take away the regulations that hamper that market and let the market work as it should.
President Trump raising the bar for acceptable extremes in politics
One of the few true statements made on this site.
I think y’all are missing the larger point. These are republicans being threatened by democrats. The republicans will cave in 3…2…1…
They are a bunch of candy asses. No intestinal fortitude. That is why we had to elect someone from outside of the republican party.
damned unelected judges are now in charge of foreign policy over the president. Truman would be turning in his grave and Carter is getting dizzy. That explains the 9th Circuit Ct.
call your congressmen and demand they close the ninth circuit court…they have that power.
well, likely it will start with a purge of the left. Adamant liberals that press harder to take away our rights might be found in very painful but hilarious positions…
What!?! just sayin’..
When the liberal purge comes I really want to apply for the position of executioner!
All of our nation’s, most-notorious, historical, criminals and underdogs were used to lower the standard of treatment, for the self-empowered citizen. If you laughed, at the strange sjw or criminal migrant, go back, and read that again. No radical, unfit to survive, ever did so, without state subsidies. They are patsies and crisis actors.
But, I don’t view this as an uprising of the normal, everyday person.
I think that praetors vs. change agents will waste money and morale, in the same respect that Bastiat’s, proverbial, broken window was a waste. Pike, in Morals and Dogma, said that both sides of the discussion would be wasted, mutually.
Have DOJ declare Soros a terrorist financier (funding domestic terrorism), freeze his assets, then go after him and all organizations receiving his funds that are tied to these riots.
My thoughts exactly.
The unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property in order to coerce or intimidate a government or the civilian population in furtherance of political or social objectives.
Certainly the groups named in the article openly admit to coming under the legal definition of terrorism above. We are not witnessing an angry mob post Rodney King police beating trial in Los Angeles in 1993 (or thereabouts). We are seeing a financed, orchestrated, organized multi state action of violence to further a political agenda. The anti organized crime RICO statutes has allowed the government to prosecute individuals for having control and influence over a group or individuals in a criminal conspiracy. These activities are being financed. Where is Mr Soros? The rioters are disposable cannon fodder. Freeze assets of their financier and you’ll get to the crux of the problem.
Soros funds said groups.
Said groups advocate and participate in political violence.
By my observation its a slam dunk case. Like asset forfeiture we’ll take your money and now you prove your innocent Mr Soros. Unconstitutional authority long advocated by the left can come back and be used against them.
Their own words admit their guilt literally bragging about their violence and its continuation. Funding such a group that intentionally commits violence to achieve a political end is conspiracy. There is no doubt ample evidence to pursue criminal charges and therefore funds must be frozen in the interim period to prevent further violence. Its not a matter of law but rather a matter of will.
You can’t use violence to intimidate the American people, period, its in the mission statement known as the Preamble; Establish Justice, Insure Domestic Tranquility.
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Well- it’s just smart to have an exit plan no matter who or where you are. It’s time to think about security at home and when we go out… even at restaurants and movies.
Almost every front door I see when I drive through local neighborhoods is the popular leaded glass half or full fronted glass doors with sidelights. About 1/5 of the folks around here have security gate enclosures at least. Those other doors are invitations into your home with a baseball bat, locks notwithstanding. At night, you can see right into most people’s living rooms as they are watching tv, because today’s house designs have omitted the entrance hall for the most part in an effort to give you a breakfast nook. You can see if people are old, young, what kind of furnishings they have, etc. Usually their vehicles are parked outside too because they have their garages packed full of crap. So, the make and model are also a telltale sign of what kinds of stuff might be in the house too. Many folks around here have generators too, because we are in a rural area, but a lot of the generators are located on the side of the house, in view from the street. I am talking about 6-10K Generacs sitting out in public view, 25 feet from the street. People usually just don’t think through things like this… unless they have been victimized before. The fact that you own a generator speaks volumes about what else you might have to someone looking to scavenge during an emergency. It shouldn’t be exhibited as a lawn ornament. In Houston proper, it would get stolen almost immediately if passerbys could see it.
Yeah, and everybody should have a drop ladder and a fire extinguisher in their house. Our house is built on a slope and our bedroom window is 12 feet off the ground on the 1st story, so that is one heck of a jump without a chain ladder. It’s always better to have a way out and not need it, than need a way out and not have it.
hvt’s ,and idot’t need targeted .stupid people lie!
