Was Saturday's Reno, NV Trump Rally Incident a Foiled JFK Moment?

Was Saturday’s Reno, NV Trump Rally Incident a Foiled JFK Moment?

by Stephen Lendman

The incident involved a man named Austin Crites. Attending Saturday’s Reno rally, reports said he threatened Trump. 

Secret Service agents wrestled him to the ground, finding no gun on his possession. Trump was rushed off stage as a precautionary measure, returning later.

Crites was arrested, then released. Was he an assassin or a Hillary plant, wanting Trump’s rally disrupted like earlier ones - paid provocateurs involved?

Following the incident, Trump issued a statement via Twitter, saying “I would like to thank the United States Secret Service and the law enforcement resources in Reno and the state of Nevada for their fast and professional response.”

“I also want to thank the many thousands of people present for their unwavering and unbelievable support. Nothing will stop us - we will make America great again.”

An earlier article asked if a JFK, RFK, MLK Moment awaits him. If he emerges triumphant on Tuesday and diverges from Washington’s longstanding ruthless agenda, will he be eliminated and replaced?

Did Saturday’s apparent false alarm suggest a possible repeat incident coming? Did it warn him to play ball or next time an incident will be real?

Bipartisan gangsters running America behind the scenes let nothing interfere with their ruthless agenda. No one gets to be president or hold any other key elected or appointed office without being part of the dirty system - voluntarily or pressured to go along.

The lessons of JFK, RFK and MLK are never forgotten by duopoly power candidates seeking high office.

If Trump becomes America’s 45th president, rest assured he promised members of America’s deep state he’ll support their agenda.

Otherwise, maybe an unfortunate plane crash, other fatal accident, or mysterious incurable, fast-acting illness will make his tenure short-lived.
