Creating Inaugural Chaos

Gary Bauer · Jan. 18, 2017

James O'Keefe and Project Veritas infiltrated a group of far-left anarchists who are plotting to create chaos during Friday’s inauguration of Donald Trump. The group plans to do everything it can to shut down the Deploraball, a grassroots pro-Trump event being held at the National Press Club.

Radical activists want to plant butyric acid or stink bombs in the building’s ventilation system. On the video, one radical said, “If you had a pint of butyric acid, I don’t care how big the building is, it is closing.” Another replies: “And this stuff is very efficient, it’s very, very smelly, and it lasts a long time.”

If the butyric acid fails, Plan B is to set off the building’s sprinkler system.

There was also a threat directed at local officials and law enforcement. One demonstrator can be heard in the video saying:

“The message has to be, we do not recognize the city government either. If you try to close us down we will look for your house, we will burn it. We will physically fight the police if they try to steal one of our places. We will go to war and you will lose.”

Meanwhile, a growing number of left-wing extremists are taking an entirely different approach — they are staying away from the inauguration. So far, more than 40 congressional Democrats have stated their plans to boycott Trump’s inaugural ceremony.

They represent the hard-core, activist Left of the party. Not surprisingly, about half of the group comes from California, Massachusetts and New York. And more than a dozen also boycotted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech before a joint session of Congress.

Among the boycotters are Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), a leading candidate for chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and Rep. John Lewis (D-GA). As I noted yesterday, Lewis made headlines over the weekend for questioning the legitimacy of Trump’s election.

Sunday, Lewis told NBC’s Chuck Todd, “I don’t plan to attend the inauguration. It will be the first one that I miss since I’ve been in the Congress. You cannot be at home with something that you feel that is wrong, is not right.”

It turns out that Trump’s inauguration isn’t the first one he will have missed. Lewis boycotted George W. Bush’s inauguration in 2001 because he questioned the legitimacy of Bush’s presidency as well.

Jihadist Families

There was breaking news [Monday] that Noor Salman, wife of Orlando shooter Omar Mateen, was arrested in San Francisco. She is charged with obstruction of justice and aiding and abetting ISIS. Mateen, as you know, killed 49 people in an Orlando nightclub last summer.

Orlando Police Chief John Mina said, “There’s no doubt in my mind … that she knew, that she aided and that she could have prevented this tragedy.”

After virtually every terrorist attack, officials have rushed to tell us that these events were carried out by “lone wolves.” But that isn’t always the case. Jihadist families have carried out many of these atrocities.

In San Bernardino, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, a husband and wife hit team, gunned down 14 people. Other Farook family members were later arrested on conspiracy charges. And the Boston Marathon bombing was carried out by the Tsarnaev brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar.

By the way, six of the 9/11 hijackers were brothers. Two of the five terrorists who attacked Brussels last year were brothers. And two brothers, Cherif and Said Kouachi, led the 2015 attack on Charlie Hebdo. In fact, one study reportedly found that as many as 30% of terrorist attacks are carried out with the help of family members, driven by their close relationships and their shared vision of what Islam requires of them.

This is why Donald Trump has repeatedly said that we need more cooperation from the Muslim community and concerned neighbors in order to stop these attacks from happening.

Trump Meets MLK III

[Monday], as the nation honored the legacy of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., President-elect Trump met with the oldest son of the slain civil rights leader, Martin Luther King III. King briefly spoke to reporters afterwards and was repeatedly baited and begged by the so-called “journalists” to attack Donald Trump.

King resisted. He reiterated that he had a “very constructive meeting” and that he looked forward to working with the new Trump-Pence administration to make America a greater nation.

While the Left and its media allies are doing their best to portray Trump as a racist, a number of black leaders have heard Donald Trump talk about revitalizing our inner cities and they have reached out to him.

For example, comedian Steve Harvey met with Donald Trump last week. After their meeting, Harvey tweeted, “I walked away feeling like I had just talked with a man who genuinely wants to make a difference.”

Unfortunately, Harvey is not feeling any love from the Left. He has received an avalanche of hate, the same kind conservatives face every day. On his radio show [Monday], Harvey said, “On a personal note, a lot of ya’ll hurt me. You really did. I didn’t expect the backlash to be so fierce.”

In Case You Missed It

A big feminist march is taking place the day after the inauguration on Saturday, Jan. 21. March organizers just kicked out one of the co-sponsoring groups. Were they kicked out because they were too radical? Did they threaten violence? No, the group was banished because it is pro-life.

Bikers for Trump is bringing thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts to Washington, DC, for the inaugural festivities. They are promising to form a “wall of meat” to protect those trying to enjoy the day’s events from the left-wing fanatics who will be here trying to create chaos. By the way, ads are reportedly running in nearly two dozen cities offering $2,500 to individuals willing to protest during the inauguration.

A disturbing new Pew poll underscores the damage Barack Obama has done to Israel. After eight years of anti-Israel hostility emanating from the White House, Democrats are almost evenly divided in their sympathies between our ally Israel and the Palestinians.

According to Pew, 33% of Democrats say they sympathize more with Israel, while 31% say they sympathize more with the Palestinians. Among liberal Democrats, it’s even worse: 38% sympathize more with the Palestinians and just 26% sympathize more with Israel. Republicans, meanwhile, overwhelmingly stand with Israel — 74% to 11%.

Sadly, the pro-Israel Democrat Party of Harry Truman and former Senator Joseph Lieberman is disappearing before our eyes.
