Republican Convention To Get Hit Next? FBI And DHS Warn Of ‘Violence’ And ‘Terror’ At The RNC

Stop Terrorism Red Hand - Public DomainAfter what just happened in Nice, France, officials are likely even more concerned about the potential for violence and terrorism at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland next week.  Details are still coming in as I write this article, but what we know so far is that a 31-year-old Tunisian man plowed his truck into a huge crowd that was gathered along the waterfront for a fireworks display during Bastille Day celebrations in the French city of Nice, and he reportedly shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ at the police before they shot him dead.  His rampage of death reportedly lasted for two kilometers before he was finally stopped, and dozens have been killed.  This comes on the heels of the massacre of five police officers in Dallas, and that came not too long after the worst mass shooting in U.S. history in Orlando.  Clearly we have entered a time when the usual rules don’t apply anymore.  So will the Republican National Convention be the next target to get hit?


Both the Republican and the Democratic conventions have been designated as “National Special Security Events”.  What this means is that the Secret Service will be running security at those venues.  It is being projected that 50,000 people will attend the Republican convention, and in addition to that there will likely be tens of thousands of protesters.

So needless to say, this will represent a big, juicy target for anyone that wants to make some sort of a statement.

We have already seen tremendous violence at Trump rallies in recent months, and there is no reason to think that the Republican convention will be any different.  The radical left dislikes Donald Trump with a passion, and many leftist organizations have already stated that they plan to show up in Cleveland in force.

As emotions run high, could something go terribly wrong?

On Thursday, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and FBI Director James Comey both told Congress that they are extremely concerned

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers on Thursday that they were preparing their agencies for the possibility of violence, both from unruly demonstrators and terrorists, at the upcoming Republican and Democratic nominating conventions.

It is likely that we are going to see more security at these conventions than we have ever seen before.  In fact, Johnson told Congress that DHS will be sending approximately 3,000 agents to each of the conventions…

“I am concerned about the prospect of demonstrations getting out of hand,” Johnson said. “I am concerned about the possibility of violence. We have, within DHS, some 3,000 personnel that will be dedicated to the security of the Republican National Convention and the Democratic National convention, each.”

And Comey told Congress that he is particular concerned about the potential for “domestic terrorism”

Comey told the committee that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was monitoring the threat of violence at the conventions “very, very carefully.”

“Anytime there is a national spotlight on a political event in the United States, there is a risk that groups that aspire to do just that, engage in acts of domestic terrorism, will be attracted,” Comey said.

Of course the feds are not just sitting back and waiting for next week to roll around.  As you read this article, they are actively “monitoring social media” and “tracking protest groups” in anticipation of what might happen

Law enforcement agencies are monitoring social media posting and tracking protest groups such as Black Lives Matter, which have disrupted Trump rallies over the past several weeks. The Secret Service is even using its Twitter account to warn users about their commentary. The agency tweeted recently, “Watch what you say on Social Media!” with a link to a news story about how agents visited a man who joked about sending a bomb when Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders were visiting his region.

For one, I am certainly glad that I am not going to be in Cleveland next week.  The security is going to be absolutely suffocating, but no level of security can stop a deranged individual that is absolutely determined to kill people and that is not afraid to die.  As we have seen, it only takes a few moments for a gunman to start mowing down those around him or for a crazed lunatic to plow a truck into a crowd of people.

And one thing we do know is that there will be lots of guns in Cleveland.  Some of the protesters have already announced that they plan to bring guns with them, and many of those attending the convention will be bringing guns as well

As the Republican convention in Cleveland approaches, several delegates from Pennsylvania who support Donald Trump say they are planning on bringing their guns with them to the GOP gathering. Why? They say they are worried about possible violent protest and even an attack from ISIS.

James Klein, a pro-Trump delegate from the Harrisburg area, notes that guns won’t be needed inside the convention hall and that delegates won’t be allowed to bring in weapons. “But,” he adds, “there’s the hotels. There’s going to be dinners.”

We may get a preview of coming attractions during the nationwide “Day of Rage” protests on Friday.  There are supposed to be protests in more than 30 cities, and they have been much hyped.  We shall see if they amount to anything or if they just fizzle out.

Regardless, it is clear that we have entered a time of increased violence.  After what just happened in France, people all over the world are going to think twice before gathering for any sort of large public event.  A huge crowd is an enticing target for any aspiring terrorist, and it is inevitable that we are going to see more attacks of this nature.

The era of the free and open society is ending.  As the violence and terror get progressively worse, our liberties and freedoms will be increasingly restricted, and we will be told that this is for our own good.

Of course this has already been happening since 9/11, but now we have entered a time when this process is going to accelerate significantly.

    The Government is bringing the terrorists in. Both directly, and indirectly (by leaving the boarder open). No big surprise, violence is increasing. Might as well stand in the rain, and be surprised you get wet.

    • kfilly

      Yep, every totalitarian regime needs its boogeyman/terrorust group to protect the sheeple against. Sheeple will beg for safety and extra protection. People in this country are dumb enough to follow in the path of history.

      And I’m sure if obummer gets his national police force it will be made up of refugees aka illegals who will not have the same qualms about firing on Americans.

      • Paul Turney

        that’s alright we American’s won’t have any qualms about putting them down and there is more of us and we know the land of the area’s we in .. they new to any area they get put into so they at a major disadvantage !!!

        • iris

          Although they may have high tech government issue “toys”. Bottom line, I think we need to pray for safety from the Lord and rest in Him, regardless of what He allows. It’s not looking good for the good guys, but it’s only temporary.

      The plan, IMHO, is to make all state and local police look inept and out of control so the federal government can take it over, typical tyrannical plot, done many times in the past by despots.

      I believe, from what I’m reading, Obama’s push to federalize the police will make it it easier to hand our law enforcement over to the UN’s new ‘global police force’ (followed by abolishing our Sheriffs Department, followed by mass gun confiscation by UNNATO forces), these are provocateur ‘tools’ like who our government provided in the Ukraine?

      Connecting the dots; BLM are the ‘useful idiots’ for Obama’s and Soro’s excuse for their bigger plan.

      Obama must be under a lot of globalist pressure to just get gun grab done once and for all.

      Once the federal government gets control, it hands the control over to the UN just like our national parks, Federal dept. of Education (Common Core) and all US waters and waterways, ETC..

      Obama Administration and UN Announce Global Police Force to Fight ‘Extremism’ In U.S.

      Pamela Geller 2 Oct 2015

      (‘Extremists’; constitutionalists, conservatives, Christians, Tea Party, complaining about anything the government does, gun owners and the NRA, property owners, home schoolers, gardeners, etc.)

      “The Sheriff is the last hope for America.”

      GPF will be Obama’s tool to end the Office of the Sheriff for mass gun confiscation, what do you think, based on history, comes next?. Remember the FEMA camps have been activated.

    Sounds like a great argument to get rid of elections. If all we are going to get is protestors walking around carrying guns and then thousands of security people on site that are supposed to deal with anything that can go wrong (Murphy’s Law), we might as well have the elites ban all voting and get rid of representational government to eliminate the violence. Can you see it coming? Sadly, it is the unthinking people in the nation doing it to themselves (and everyone else).


      Agree. What Ergodan pulled, O might pull, as well.

    If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him,”

    I would suggest that people get silver coins because you will have to have real money to get any items you might need. Silver coins are easily recognizable and have no counterparty risk. I personally believe it is still relatively cheap. Gold and silver are accepted universally. Keep your silver outside of the financial system. Don’t put them in a safety deposit box.

    All Fiat currency that has ever existed reverts to its intrinsic value which is zero as Voltaire stated.

    Everyone of the people killed in ISIS terrorism attacks both here and abroad have one thing in common. They now hate the ISIS brand of the Muslim religion.
    Now if 1% of those people devote themselves to killing anyone of the ISIS brand of the Muslim religion what will you eventually have?
    I think we are looking at the elimination of an entire people devoted to violence and other bad things.
    IF a group and I mean any group leaves a reputation that is this bad, then no one in their right mind will ever do business with them again.
    Because if you are not Muslim this group has shown in the past that their word is worthless.
    So what does that leave us in dealing contracts and agreements?
    I came within a day of being at Victoria Station around 2005 when attending the funeral of my Father. Terrorists blew it up with all those people in it. I begged off going because it is a 12 hour trip basically from the States to England.

    At the funeral, the employees were listening to the radio when the announcement came over that something really bad had happened.
    I agree with Trump. Send them home. Do not let the people do here what they have done in Europe.
    I regret only that a huge number of innocent victims of these people that happen to be Muslim must suffer because of these homicidal maniacs.

      Thanks for sharing that, DJohn1, and sorry for the loss of your father. I agree, psychopathy is no respecter of persons. It makes me even more grateful for the concepts of grace, mercy and faith in them which I’ve been given in Christ Jesus. i pray that all may come to know the reality of His love and life. We’ve celebrated this culture of death long enough.

  • Jim Davis

    If Trump doesn’t win this election in a landslide, then this country doesn’t deserve to continue, and most likely won’t!

    TRUMP 2016 – or Adios America!

      Psst..the voting is rigged

        I’m afraid you’re right, but vote, I will. At least they’ll know my intentions.

    Many Muslims today are strongly condemning the vicious cowardly attack by the mad extremist Tunisian. This man should look forward to grievous punishment in the afterlife because he unjustly took the lives of many innocent people. In the Koran it says can one who commits evil be like the one who does good? Of course not! The man faces double punishment in the grave and in hell. May God have mercy on the deceased and the victims of this tragedy…

    • Russ Miller

      Then why were muslims dancing in the streets every time ISIS butchered innocents? Don’t take my word for it. Look it up.

    • Kent Harris

      Mohammad is no prophet and Allah is no god. A clear understanding of what the Koran represents and one can conclude that Islam is not holy and certainly not a religion of peace. There is one who sits on His throne and by His name that one can be saved and His name is Jesus Christ. He is both man and God who is our Creator and He alone is the only one we are to worship and to give honor to. I know Muslims refuse to acknowledge Jesus as God but the reality is He has been and always will be. He was with the Father from the very beginning and even the Pharisees knew this and hated Him for it and they crucified Him for it. Evil exists because man refuses the one gift of salvation that all may receive. You choice.

  • Paul Patriot

    The demonic “religion of peace” strikes again. What is it going to take for people to get so posses off with this evil ideology and its false prophet, and start fighting back???

    One is not an islamphobe, by simply reminding folks of the 1400 year history of death, destruction and oppression that the “religion of peace” has contributed to planet earth wherever it rears its ugly head.

  • D. Ante

    Be extra careful of agent provocateurs, paid or otherwise. They will be attempting to instigate violence for the sake of blaming it on “right-wing radicals”. Also beware of an organized false-flag incident, something large. The RNC is a perfect event to unleash a false-flag of some type in order to increase racial tensions and impose draconian legislation designed to shred the Constitution. Considering the success that TPTB have had with relentless false-flags spanning multiple presidencies, why would they skip the opportunity to do so here?

  • UncleMike Davis

    Those queers at the alleged massacre in Orlando was not the worst massacre in US history. Not even close. The innocents and children at the Waco massacre, shot and burned alive by the US government, was far greater. Many massacres of American Indians by the US government were far greater. In fact, Orlando was another false flag event.

    The legally armed bikers showing up in Cleveland will frighten the Hillary O’bummer commies. All through history, commies disarm their victims first, and then butcher the helpless by the millions. We Americans are not disarmed. The cowardly commies will not risk their worthless lives for Hillary and O’Bummer in Cleveland, even with the leftist mayor and city council ordering the police to standdown in protecting the RNC convention.. They will attack somewhere else. Somewhere safer for their rioting and looting and burning cars and businesses.

      “Those queers at the alleged massacre in Orlando was not the worst massacre in US history…..”

      well how Christian of you to use “queers” when so many died
      Jesus weeps

  • VigilanteCaregiver

    To be completely honest; an attack, riot, or demonstration at either convention doesn’t directly impact my family or I. Only a full-on offensive with high casualties and regicide does (If both candidates are comprised, then who knows what can happen with such corruption and iniquities). So unless that happens; I’m not worried.

  • Bob McMahan

    If only we can get Governor Kascic to allow the protestors to enter the convention center.

  • iris

    Have read that document put out a couple of years ago, about us “extremists”, which is basically anyone who questions or disagrees with the extreme Left. I think you’re right with regard to how things will probably go down.

  • Charles Reece

    If the Church would pray for these people — even if they don’t deserve it (as none of us deserve anything “good” from the Lord anyway; considering that what the Lord desires to “give” to us is done out of His “grace” anyway, in spite of the Human Race’s rebellion against him…….including ours own rebellion against Him in the Body of Christ). So, let’s pray fervently for their protection from all hurt, harm, and danger!!
