Lawmaker: Obama May Stage Assassination Attempt To Impose Martial Law

President Obama may be working with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to stage a fake assassination attempt before the November election so he can impose martial law on America, a Tennessee Republican state lawmaker said via a mass email last week.

“Rep. Kelly Keisling (R-Byrdstown) sent an email from his state email account to constituents containing a rumor that Obama and the Department of Homeland Security are planning a series of events that could lead to the imposition of ‘martial law’ and delay the election,” the Huffington Post reported:

Among the events hypothesized in the email is a staged assassination attempt on the president that would lead to civil unrest in urban areas and martial law.

Keisling appears to have forwarded a more widely circulated email from Joe Angione, a Florida-based conservative blogger. Angione prefaces the rumor by saying it has not been confirmed but likewise notes it has not been denied. Angione also writes that people need to work to prevent the rumor from becoming reality.

The conspiracy theory started with an article written by Doug Hammon and posted on, which he said arose from conversations he had with an informant within the Department of Homeland Security.

The Constitution Party of Florida posted the same Angione story on their website this week. Party chairman Mark Pilling wrote a note saying that he believes some sort of unrest will occur this year.

Pilling wrote:


Personally, I believe something will happen the last quarter of this year. Financial unrest or another false flag event that causes civil unrest. Now is the time for all Americans to band together against the financial influences that are running our puppets in Washington and the mass media that keeps us distracted to that and their treasonous actions. Here is the rumor. Based on alot of factors, I think it has potential. Divide and Conquer. Below, there is a link to one of the other more recent false flag events.

Keisling’s assistant, Frankie Anderson, confirmed that the email was sent “at Keisling’s request” from a state account under the name of Holt Whitt, who is identified in the email as Keisling’s assistant. Anderson said he is filling in for Whitt.

The Huffington Post, in an update, noted:

The Tennessean reported Wednesday that Keisling released a statement Wednesday morning through a Republican legislative spokesperson expressing regret for sending the email to his constituents.

Common Cause (PDF) last year identified Rep. Keisling as a legislative member of ALEC, the highly-controversial  American Legislative Exchange Council.

Brilliant, so when some yahoo does attempt to assassinate the President because of the hateful rhetoric and propaganda perpetuated by this tool and his peers, they can turn around and blame the President for what they themselves did. Sounds vaguely familiar, actually.

My thoughts exactly. Perhaps they know of something, and want to make it look like the president staged it by spreading this rumor ahead of time. I have a naturally skeptical mind that leads to conspiracies because nothing surprises me anymore.
