Conservatives Claim A Fake Assassination Attempt Will Delay The 2012 Elections

Author: August 1, 2012 3:46 pm

A conservative blogger by the name of Joe Angione widely emailed a rumor stating that Obama is planning to delay the 2012 elections process by staging a fake assassination attempt. Yep, you read that right. We knew the right-wing wasn’t above blatantly distorting facts, but now it seems they’re just fine with outright lies, as well. Admittedly, the beginning of the email started off with saying that the rumor has not been confirmed, but goes on to assure readers that the rumor has also not been disproved. With that kind of logic, it’s no surprise that studies show that conservatives are lazy thinkers.

The rumor mill started with an article on CanadaFreePress.com, which is a good read if you’re in for an incredulous laugh. The link is here. In short, the author (Doug Hammon) asserts that an informant within the Department of Homeland Security has given him a great deal of information about a huge conspiracy with President Barack Obama at the heart. Generally crazed conservative bloggers and delusional conspiracy theorists can be ignored. Not in this case.

This gets much scarier with another bit of information. Kelly Keisling, a Republican representative from Tennessee, forwarded the email from Joe Angione–from his state email account, no less. He used his official email to spread unproved rumors based on an unnamed source most likely made up by a conspiracy theorist and re-posted by a conservative blogger. This is the process used by conservatives to get their information? Abominable. For an example, here’s an excerpt from the original article:

Does Obama look worried about the upcoming elections? Look at his lavish vacations, his limited work schedule, and those with whom he is working.  This is a very dangerous man who has, as his closest advisors, people who have orchestrated the revolutions of the 1960s. They know the “trigger points” in America.


The Obama administration, including his czars and along with his closets Progressive supporters, are planning a manufactured insurgency against America. He is using the media to his advantage to garner both sympathy and support for his unfinished goals. He is desperately seeking a way to remain in office, even if it means the surreal prospect of an indefinite postponement of elections – if it can be pulled off. So far, he’s got the support of the majority of the DHS “brass” behind him, according to my source.

“They’re power hungry, and they want to remain in charge,” stated this source.

The “surreal” aspect of suspended elections won’t look so surreal when you see any or all of the “trigger points” take place in the not-so-distant future.

“The end-game plan for America is its destruction as a Constitutional Republic, with the assistance of the agencies under the umbrella of the DHS.”

To most of us, such an accusation is something to be laughed at or ignored without definitive evidence. For Representative Kelly Keisling, this is serious news.

This morning, he did apologize through a GOP spokesman for the email he circulated, stating that, “Earlier this week, I forwarded an email from my legislative office that should not have been sent out. The message was inappropriate for distribution. I regret the error and pledge to be more cautious regarding the information distributed from my office in the future.”

  • Doug Hammon really needs to up his voltage or his meds or both =/

    • Turbo,

      Sad part is that this Kiesling guy is HIDING, his Half-Whitt assistant is HIDING, even HuffPo screwed up and put the Half-Whitt’s poort unpaid intern, Frankie’s name on the INTERNET for all to see and Frankie was “FORCED” to spend the day(s) answering phone calls for the COWARDS.

      The local news had a good young reporter Twitter: @wsmvcarakumari

      standing on the steps of the Capitol explaining the COWARDS “would not comment” but had to read the “SORRY” BS from Kiesling’s office…..

      The Baggers NEED TO BE VOTED OUT – KIESLING and HALF-WHITT need to be standing on the Capitol steps RIGHT NOW, RESIGNING…after all, it is Election Day in Tennessee.

      Worst part – this is NOT THE WORST THING the BAGGERS ARE DOING HERE IN TENNESSEE.

  • THe conspiracy developers are always onto way to make Obama seem sinister and creepy. THis one does indeed remind me of the rumor that Bush was going to cause a war or something, so that he could postpone elections indefinitely. At that time I remember being worried that Bush might really do it.
    It’s so easy to play to our fears. Even reasonable people can get caught up in it.
    Obama has never appeared sinister at any time. He has appeared to be controlling anger, but it was legitimate anger, like when the GOP took the Unemployment payments hostage. during the winter break Obama wanted to end the Bush tax cuts but the GOP said not unless you give up on getting unemployment benefits for those about to lose them.
