Extremists Threaten Trump And Call For Revolution, Situation Is Expected To Get ‘Far Worse’ Before November Election

Revolution. This, if anything, appeared to be a major theme flowing from the protesters and rioters over the weekend in Washington D.C. Those calls came from groups claiming to be Black Lives Matter, Antifa activists, leftists liberals and other Marxist, socialist like groups who came to be a part of the march for justice in the city.

Instead of justice and peace, however, the march began to take on the hallmarks of revolutions we’ve witnessed in videos or news in other parts of the world. I was there during the day on Saturday, with Jennie Taer. She is a writer on the website and for the most part we witnessed a fairly normal protests in morning and early afternoon. However, as the day went on the situation slowly began to transform into calls for a revolution and removing President Donald Trump from office.

Some of those calls were actually direct threats to the president. There is a growing fear in Washington D.C. and among federal law enforcement officials that the situation is expected to get worse before, during and after the November presidential elections.

Federal law enforcement officials are mindful and carefully monitoring extremist groups, one law enforcement official told SaraACarter.com.

“It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if these groups were being manipulated by outside forces intending to make things worse for our country before the election. I would bet that’s exactly what’s happening,” the federal law enforcement official said.

Last week, acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said the anarchist group Antifa, “absolutely” meets the standards of being designated as a “domestic terrorist group.”

“I think what we see with them individually targeting law enforcement, individually targeting certain officials for certain reasons, that is the definition of domestic terrorism,” Wolf told The Federalist in an interview.

Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard B. Kerik posted a Tweet over the weekend from the March On Washington D.C., showing a man threatening to rip Trump out of the White House. In the video the man claims his name is John Sullivan, from Salt Lake City, Utah, who says his group is ‘Insurgents U.S.A.’

“We about to burn this shit down,” he says in the video, referring at one point to the shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin by 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who’s charged with killing two and injuring others during the riots last week. He referred to other white militia in Utah, as well.

“Fuck this shit,” he said. “We out there strapped, we out there ready to burn that shit down, we out there to defend our fucking selves. We got to defend ourselves now too,” he said, getting a group to chant ‘power to the people’ multiple times.

“We got to fucking rip Trump out of that office right there,” he said. “We got to pull him out that shit. Nah, nah, we ain’t fucking about waiting until the next election, we about to go get that mother fucker. I ain’t about that shit, cause you know what time it is…repeat after me, it’s time for a revolution.”

FBI officials could not be immediately reached for comment regarding the threat made to Trump.

In another video a Black Lives Matter speaker threatens to put police in a grave and burn down the White House.

There is no doubt that the situation is going to get far worse in our nation if lawmakers don’t work together to reduce the anger and quell the violence growing in our cities. This means our lawmakers – federal, state and local – must not politicize the increasing dangers in our cities, as Mayor of Portland Ted Wheeler has done.

We’ve already witnessed too many lives lost and ten-of-millions of dollars in destruction throughout our communities. Moreover, the majority of Americans are not rioting in the streets or causing destruction but they are fearful of the growing unrest.

There are only 63 days until the election and that doesn’t buy much time to fix a situation that only benefits the enemies of our country.

So if lawmakers on both sides of the aisle truly care about the people they represent then they will work together to attempt to stop this, or they’ll be partially responsible for the bloodshed and violence that we have yet to witness.

The American people can no longer be used in these lawmakers political games.

EXCLUSIVE: Former Trump appointee explains an ‘America First Strategy’ in the ME

The author interviewed Ellie Cohanim, one of the authors of the new book: “An America First Approach to US National Security.” Ellie is the former U.S. Deputy Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Antisemitism under the Trump administration. She is currently a Senior Fellow with the Independent Women’s Forum focusing on Iran, Israel, and global antisemitism, and is a national security contributor for the Christian Broadcasting Network. In 2021, Ellie launched and hosted for Jewish News Syndicate 30 plus episodes of the show “Global Perspectives with Ellie Cohanim.” Ellie spent 15 years in media and NGO management before serving in the public sector. How would you define an “America First” strategy in the Middle East?

Cohanim: An America First strategy in the Middle East would seek to advance American national security interests in that region, while maintaining our status as THE global superpower. To do that, the US would ensure that our principal allies in the region, countries like Saudi Arabia and Israel, are economically and militarily strong, and that our adversaries in the region are deterred.

Postal: How has the United States’ standing in the Middle East differed between the Trump and Biden administrations?

Cohanim: Under President Trump, for four years we had peace, stability and prosperity in the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) region. Under President Biden, in just three tumultuous years there has been war in the region, which holds the potential for becoming a regional conflict and even a nuclear confrontation. Meanwhile, the US’ status in the region and the world has diminished due to Biden’s disastrous mishandling of the Afghanistan withdrawal, his emboldening of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and his weak response to Iranian attacks on our personnel and assets in the region. 

 

Postal: Do you think the United States and Israel are/were in a stronger position to deter Iran’s nuclear and territorial ambitions in Biden or Trump’s administration?

Cohanim: America’s position of strength has not changed under either administration vis-à-vis the Islamic Republic of Iran. What has changed is our Iran policy. Under President Trump’s administration, the US contained and constrained Tehran. Trump applied a “Maximum Pressure” sanctions campaign which left the Iranian Regime with only $4 billion in accessible foreign currency reserves by the end of his term, giving the Iranians less cash and less ability to fund their terror proxies and their nuclear program, and Trump eliminated Qassem Soleimani. While all President Biden needed to do was to continue implementing such successful policies, his administration instead did the exact opposite.  Under the Biden administration, Israel, our leading ally in the region, was attacked for the first time directly from Iranian soil. This was an unprecedented escalatory attack by the Iranian regime, and could only happen under the Biden administration.

Postal: In your chapter of the book, you discuss the weakening of US relations with Israel and Saudi Arabia under the Biden administration. How has the Biden administration affected the likelihood of future normalization between Israel and Saudi Arabia, and deals between Israel and other Muslim countries (i.e., new Abraham Accords)?

Cohanim: The good news is that the Abraham Accords have withstood the test of multiple Hamas provocations against Israel, and now the current war. Despite numerous claims from the Biden administration regarding “successful” efforts to normalize ties between Saudi Arabia and Israel, I do not think that the Biden administration will be able to clinch such a deal. In the Middle East, people have a long memory. Saudi Arabia’s de-facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) has not forgotten President Biden’s snub when he first came into office, and Biden’s incredibly poorly advised behavior towards the Crown Prince when he made his first visit to the Kingdom as president. The last thing the Crown Prince wants is to hand Biden his first foreign policy success with a Rose Garden peace deal ceremony. So, I do not believe President Biden can broker Saudi/Israeli normalization.

However, I am also convinced that it is a matter of “when” and not “if” such a peace deal will happen between those two countries, as it serves both of their interests to make such a deal. The Saudis understand better than anyone that it is the Islamic Republic of Iran that threatens the Kingdom’s security and stability, not Israel.

Postal: What do you think of the Biden administration’s latest statements withholding arms to Israel?

Cohanim: President Biden will go down in history for his abject moral failure in not standing by Israel while she fights a five-front war. Biden has shown his despicable personality for trying to keep his anti-Israel arms embargo concealed until he could first deliver a speech on the Holocaust. Biden’s behavior is despicable on so many levels.

Ultimately, Biden is betraying the American people. He came into office presenting himself as a “centrist Democrat,” but has proven repeatedly to be beholden to the radical, extremist, pro-Hamas wing of his party.

Postal: How does the Biden administration’s support of a Palestinian state differ from the Trump administration’s support of a Palestinian state under its Peace to Prosperity framework?

Cohanim: The Biden administration stated that they will “unilaterally recognize” a Palestinian state. What the borders of that state are and who would lead it, nobody knows. 

The Trump administration’s “Peace to Prosperity” was a detailed plan that was premised on the realities on the ground in Israel. The plan required that the Palestinians reach benchmarks proving a real desire to live in peace with their Israeli neighbors. It included over $50 billion in investment in the region, which would have been a road to prosperity for all. Perhaps most significantly, the Palestinian state envisioned under the Trump plan would have been demilitarized, the wisdom of which could not be more clear following the October 7 massacre and attack.

The author would like to thank Ellie Cohanim for participating in this interview.
