Keisling Obama Conspiracy Emailing Gets Huffington Post Note

A Republican member of the Tennessee state legislature emailed constituents Tuesday morning with a rumor circulating in conservative circles that President Barack Obama is planning to stage a fake assassination attempt in an effort to stop the 2012 election from happening.
Further from The Huffington Post:
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. 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.
….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.
Anderson said that Keisling did not offer an explanation for why he wanted the email sent. It went to residents across the 38th district, which includes Clay, Jackson, Pickett and Scott Counties, along with part of Anderson County. Keisling has not returned messages left at his Byrdstown insurance office, and there was no answer at his home.

Note: The forwarded email is below.

Importance: High
God help us, if ANYONE stoops to this level! As I was reading this
article I kept thinking that the more we are aware that something like
this is remotely possible, the better off we are to recognize it and
fend it off…..then the author addresses my very thoughts! The last
paragraph in blue summarizes the reason we should pass this one around.
For some reason, the word “treason” comes to mind if this is
An Obama rumor that must never become reality!
By Joe Angione
A good journalist is usually taught not to print rumors or at least
never to present them as the truth. What I’m going to report here is
only a rumor that presently can’t be confirmed. But it is of such
magnitude that it must be made known if only to prepare America for a
possible terrible eventuality. And while it has not been confirmed,
neither can it authoritatively and convincingly be denied, certainly
not in a United States where our Constitutional rights are under
constant attack.
This rumor involves an agent of the Department of Homeland Security
who allegedly informed a reporter at the Canada Free Press of a “false
flag” or faked event to be initiated by Obama administration operatives
in the hope of preventing the November presidential elections.
Canada Free Press (CFP) is an independent, conservative, electronic
daily newspaper, updated several times a day. It boasts more than 100
writers and columnists who file stories regularly to the newspaper from
all corners of the globe. According to the newspaper’s coverage of
this DHS “whistleblower,” the event would be a staged assassination
attempt on the life of President Obama that would be blamed on “white
supremacists” and subsequently used to enrage black and Hispanic
communities driving them to rioting all across the nation.
The faked assassination, says the CFP report, would be carried out
through the assistance of DHS agents, and “other colluders” taking
their orders from the White House. The objective would be to stir up
enough racial unrest to justify the imposition of martial law in major
urban cities, including erecting DHS checkpoints, restricting travel,
and delaying (possibly indefinitely) the November 2012 elections.
Doug Hagmann, reporting in the May 8, 2012, edition of the Canada Free
Press wrote that his informant works in “the upper-echelon of DHS,”
which he described as “effectively under the control of Barack Hussein
Hagmann’s contact said: “The DHS is actively preparing for massive
social unrest inside the United States . He then corrected himself,
stating that ‘a civil war’ is the more appropriate term. Certain
elements of the government are not only expecting and preparing for
it, they are actually facilitating it.”
The DHS whistleblower mentioned a recent meeting at the Department of
Homeland Security where plans were discussed to use pawns to simulate
the rioting seen in the Arab Spring countries that would bring on a
“controlled chaos” for the benefit of the Obama administration.
“Envisioned by these conspirators are riots starting in urban areas
such as New York , followed by a disruption of business and commerce,”
the DHS source added. “They want to restrict travel, if not through
high energy prices, then by checkpoints and curfews mandated by the
rioting and unrest…The whole purpose is to keep Obama in office for
another term, no matter how unpopular he is, as he is not finished
changing our country from a Constitutional Republic .”
This certainly isn’t the first rumor to surface about Mr. Obama’s
intention to subvert the U.S. Constitution, by manipulating economic,
racial and social issues that would polarize Americans and bring on
enormous conflict, but the full measure of this contrived event, if
true, involves total suspension of our democratic rights, and
repression on a scale never thought possible in the America we’ve known
and cherished all our lives.
It’s a rumor that bears watching …and is worth spreading because the
more people who know about it–and understand the high level of deceit
and treachery that confronts us daily in Washington –the less likely
it is for the rumor to become a reality. The lesson here is that if
people are aware of the possibility, even remote, of some great
calamity befalling them, they’re on guard…they’re prepared…their
defenses are up, and those who would commit evil, will back down
fearing a confrontation they can’t win.
The more we talk about the potential for a staged, bogus presidential
assassination that would trigger massive civil unrest and possible
martial law, the stronger is our defense against it actually occurring.
The nation will be watching. Patriots everywhere will be on alert. The
Obama administration will be under scrutiny more intensely than ever
before. It doesn’t have the guts to take on millions of Americans when
we’re ready for anything.
Sometimes rumors are a good thing.
