Trump issues warning to opponents: 'It would be very bad' if his military, police and biker supporters got 'tough'
By Daniel Dale Washington Bureau Chief
Thu., March 14, 2019

WASHINGTON--U.S. President Donald Trump has issued what seems to be a warning of armed pushback against his political opponents, telling a right-wing website on Monday that "it would be very bad, very bad" if his supporters in the military, police and a motorcycle group were provoked into getting "tough."

Trump uttered the remark in an interview with Breitbart News, a right-wing website that supports him. It came, according to Breitbart, as Trump was arguing that "the left" plays politics in a "tougher" and more "vicious" manner than the pro-Trump right even though "the tough people" are on Trump's side. (1)

"I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump -- I have the tough people, but they don't play it tough -- until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad," Trump said. ... Trump did not specify who "they" were. Breitbart did not emphasize the quote, which it published in an article headlined "Exclusive -- President Donald Trump: Paul Ryan Blocked Subpoenas of Democrats."

The quote prompted criticism and alarm when the Star tweeted it. ... "This is how an authoritarian talks. Happening right in front of us," Brendan Nyhan, a University of Michigan public policy professor who co-founded an initiative monitoring the state of U.S. democracy, said on Twitter.

I generally do not consider Trump's tweets and comments worthy of attention in LBN. I'll make an exception for this.

Trump to Breitbart on how the left plays tough: "I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump -- I have the tough people, but they don't play it tough -- until they go to a certain point and then it would be very bad, very bad."

121. People are not paying attention to what Cohen had to say if Trump loses in 2020

Cohen testified that he feared that Trump could call for a revolution of his supporters if he fails to win the election. I have no doubt that he may very well go to that extreme. Remember what he said when asked if he would concede if Hilary won. He said that you will have to wait and see. This is the key to our system in which the loser gracious concedes unlike the other governments in which it results end up in armed rebellion. If it comes that our nation will be in great peril. There are thousands of his supporters who are armed to the teeth and just need and excuse to start a internal war. Just today he said that he has a lot of tough supporters, military, police and bikers who are his supporters and will not hesitate to defend him.

9. "Zero supporters?" Don't kid yourself.er

He does have supporters in the police. And doubtless some in the military as well, albeit hopefully not much in the officer corps. His blanket statement that he "has the support" of the police and military isn't true, but "zero supporters" isn't either.

Are they ready to die for MF45? Are they ready to murder for Dump?

Spend the rest of their life in prison for tRump?

Not many redhats willing to go that far.

70. I grew up military and the first thing you learn is that you are not supposed

to express political opinions in any way. Even the kids of military are not allowed to. One guy in my dad's group got called in and officially chewed out because his wife wrote to the President on a military related subject. When some kids did some painting of words on base once all the men were told to remind their wives and kids that this was not allowed as we were not to have political opinions in public. If the Generals say or do anything they are breaking the rules.

At this point those remaining are now officially known as: Suckers for Trump. May as well put a sign on their ass saying "kick me".

The few RW type acquaintances I know on Facebook and elsewhere have been dead silent concerning Trump lately and actually the hero worship has been fading for quite some time now.

Instead, most political comments, if any, are about scary socialists and AOC or Warren.

I would like to know who, in the military, would go out with their guns and hit against his "opponents"...If that is true then they need to be outed and they need to resign/discharged from the military, that would be breaking their oath..“will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”, and the orange buffoon is definitely a domestic threat...he wants to have a militia the same way Chavez and Maduro have in Venezuela (Colectivos), who have killed a lot of innocent people "defending" the "Robolution" (Kleptocracy - 'Robo' ---> to rob).

30. In a way, this is against the law. He cannot threaten people with our military, police, bikers.

Yes, it is a real threat... "saying it would be "very bad" if his supporters in the military, police and a biker group were provoked into getting "tough"

This is against the U.S.Constitution (I believe)

How does Trump define, "provoke" and how will that happen? Is Trump going to provoke them to act?

Lawyers that are here in DU.. .Is this a threat?
How would a reasonable judge interpret this? What would a constitutional historian say? But one thing is very good.....

And that is this: ..It is out there for all to see. Everyone can read and see this and comment on this. Everyone..and the country will decide if he broke the law.. (because he just did for everyone to see.)

Of course, he doesn't know it, and is too stupid to see the significance. But the lawyers know, and so do the courts know. ......

Far more stupider than anyone thought. He has taken that step that could do it. No President threatens the opposition with force in this manner. He could apologize for saying this, but he won't..This one he will not get away with. This one could unify much of his opposition against him. Yes, I do believe some Republicans will stand against threats like this. (some)


It could be a long ACT IV...the last act. Or it could be very short.
Talking like this, is indeed an impeachable offense. Trump is much too stupid to know it, but many others do know it.

But believe it or not, the admissions story is huge. It would be hard to underestimate how many middle class Americans it affects. My son is a high level college bound athlete. I get emails from recruiting outfits who will help raise his profile for a fee every. single. day. To include from the IMG academy who is caught up in this. I'm guessing every family with any kid in any club sport in the country is receiving the same emails. The savvy among us can see it is plainly a scam, this sheds a little more light. My kid is lucky, he is genuinely being recruited but there are thousands, probably millions, of kids who wish they were, with parents willing to do "whatever it takes."

2. No arguments as to what he said. (It is there for everyone to read and see)
3. No easy way out of what he said.
4. It is clearly against the law to threaten people
5. Some, yes some, republicans will stand up against this threat.
6. Since the sentence is clear and easy to understand, everyone will know and understand what he has said.
7. It is very hard to defend statements like this.

And...in my opinion this is it. The very last straw for all to see.. He has just struck out in the last of the 9th and the other side...(that is us) has won the ball game. He doesn't know it yet, but the lawyers and congress people will take over and show him the door, or carry him out of the theater...

Ever since he had that epiphany during the campaign, that he could do anything, even shoot someone on Fifth Ave., he really thinks he can do or say anything without repercussions. He repeatedly crosses lines and either doesn't realize or doesn't think it matters.

We keep seeing "last straws", I wonder if this is really the one. What does this man have to do to get republicans in congress to act decisively and quickly? To quote a republican, "We don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud", only WE really mean it! The man is a clear and present danger and no one has any control over him except Vladimir Putin.

Well, at least he never wore a tan suit!

Toronto Star

Website: thestar.com

The Toronto Star is a Canadian broadsheet daily newspaper. Based on 2015 statistics, it is Canada's highest-circulation newspaper on overall weekly circulation; although it is a close second to The Globe and Mail in daily circulation on weekdays, it overtakes the Globe in weekly circulation because the Globe does not publish a Sunday edition. The Toronto Star is owned by Toronto Star Newspapers Limited, a subsidiary of Torstar Corporation and part of Torstar's Daily News Brands division.

Also, most legitimate news sources know, wisely, to dismiss what appears on Breitbart as worthless crap, and not news.

Also, it's in the Washington Post now too:

Hell yes he just made a serious threat to the country.

The Fix Analysis
Trump again nods toward violence by his supporters — and maybe something bigger

By Aaron Blake
March 14 at 1:21 PM

No matter what the White House says, President Trump has repeatedly and not-subtly suggested his supporters could be violent — sometimes in an approving manner. And there’s a common thread running through much of it: Again and again, Trump has suggested they could rise up if they feel either they or Trump have been wronged by the political process.

There are several examples. The most well-worn was when Trump suggested during the 2016 campaign that “Second Amendment people” could stop a President Hillary Clinton from installing liberal judges. Trump played it off as a coincidence unrelated to violence that he flagged gun-rights supporters as the last line of defense against a political outcome he opposed.

Now, Trump is at it again. And this time, his statement has overtones of something bigger. ... In an interview with Trump-friendly Breitbart News this week, Trump talked about how “tough” the left was getting, relative to his supporters. His quote meanders a little bit, but stick with it and focus on the text in bold:

It’s so terrible what’s happening. You know, the left plays a tougher game, it’s very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don’t play it tougher. Okay? I can tell you, I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad. But the left plays it cuter and tougher.

As The Washington Post’s David Nakamura pointed out, this is actually quite similar to something Trump said at a September campaign rally for now-Sen. Josh Hawley (R) in Missouri:

They’re so lucky that we’re peaceful. Law enforcement, military, construction workers, Bikers for Trump -- how about Bikers for Trump? They travel all over the country. They got Trump all over the place, and they’re great. They’ve been great. But these are tough people. These are great people. But they’re peaceful people, and Antifa and all -- they’d better hope they stay that way. I hope they stay that way. I hope they stay that way.

....

72. Let us fervently hope that he DOESN'T have the support of the federal police or the

military if the crunch comes.

Let us pray these people remember their oaths are not to Trump but to this nation.

Armed Forces
I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

National Guard
I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the State of (STATE NAME) against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the Governor of (STATE NAME) and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to law and regulations. So help me God.

Federal Agents
I [name] do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

The clauses that should bind the military and national guard are, '...according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice,' and '...according to law and regulations.'

So, if it comes out that Trump has broken the law, and he is impeached, tried and removed from office, then he's no longer the president. Or, if he loses in 2020, and refuses to leave office, then he is also no longer the president. It is at that point that our armed forces, National Guard, and federal law enforcement MUST remember and uphold their oaths.

I guess the real question here is:

Will our institutions hold?

We'd better hope they do. Fervently.

He's a very stupid egotistical man. But i dont think he could take that hit to his ego so he would leave office blaming everyone but himself for the loss. Just like every OTHER time he loses.

Otherwise, what does impeachment actually mean and what do we as a party stand for?

113. He won't have all of the military support out there

When I joined the Army, I took an oath to uphold and defend the constitution and not to any single person. Even though I’m no longer in the Army or even have my commission anymore, I still adhere to my oath. I take that oath very seriously, and I imagine I’m not the only one.

123. Trump would love if Dems had become violent so he could claim being "law and order" Pres.

Instead almost all of incidents of mass violent attacks or plotted attacks since he took office have been committed or planned by right wingers and Trumpers and gun nuts, not Dems and liberals. Rightwingers tried to infiltrate and paint anti-Trumpers as extremist "antifa" but haven't succeeded in the face of the publicity over the rightwing attacks and arrests.

125. I feel that it is up to Pence.

He is so right wing that if he went to the cabinet there would be a better chance of getting rid of Trump. If Pence wants to be president he has a better shot of getting elected in 2020 than if Trump stays in power and brings the whole country down. Any Republican with a brain has to know that Trump is killing the party.

130. Regardless of whether military, police and bikers

actually would or would not entertain violence on behalf of Trump, we are witnessing a sitting President of the United States openly talking about what amounts to the historical function of blackshirts and brownshirts (Mussolini and Hitler respectively). Stunning and something I did not think I would live to ever see/hear in my lifetime.

But the damage has been done just by saying it.

This guy has all the hallmarks of a dictator in the making and needs to be impeached or arrested or force out of office before its too late.

132. Totally channeling Putin!

Putin has an infamous bikers' club, Night Wolves, that supports him. They like to ride around intimidating and roughing up protesters.

What next? Is Trump going to take up martial arts like Putin?

148. think it's bad now?

He's going to get worse as the vise tightens.
He's going to do **anything*** to stay out of prison.

If he get's impeached, indicted etc - it's going to get really ugly.
If he hangs on to 2020 and gets beat - it's gong to be a really scary ~70 days because as soon as he leaves office it's open season.

Not good that he's already floating these things....

156. My girlfriend and I do a lot of business at biker rallies. She especially has a lot of great old

biker friends. Some probably know someone that knows someone that you wouldn't want a problem with. Of course you don't call in that kind of favor if you have any sense. If someone seriously messed with her, the right people might find out about it and deal with it. It sure as shit isn't something you go around shooting your mouth off about.

I'd say the bikers I know tend to be conservative. A lot of them hated Son's of Anarchy because that kind of thing makes them look bad. That show was okay I thought, but got kind of ridiculous. There aren't enough hours in the day to be that bad assed of a bad assed biker! There's a reason why they don't call themselves "biker gangs". Even the guys that love Trump won't appreciate that.

There are the hard core 1%er bikers out there. Not as many as people think. Some are just wannabe's. I know a guy that wears a 1% patch and rides a Sportster! LOL The guys that would commit acts of violence for Trump are probably right in the middle of the meth trade and all that crap. Not exactly who you should be bragging about being fans.
