Huffington Post, 31 July 2012
Rep. Kelly Keisling, a Republican member of the Tennessee state legislature is circulating a rumor in conservative circles that President Barack Obama is planning to stage a fake assassination attempt—-that he claims would lead to civil unrest in urban areas and martial law—-in an effort to stop the 2012 election from happening.
Phi Beta Iota: Similar rumors circulated when Dick Cheny was making similar martial law moves, including Halliburton “resettlement” camps. The two-party tyranny is much smarter than that–Romney is the stalking horse this time, playing the role that Sarah Palin played. If he selects Condi Rice as his Vice President, this will be high theater indeed.
