Here’s an interesting pass-along from the White House Insider…
Here’s the deal. Nobody has heard anything on that visit beyond it’s being planned. SS had protocols in place only as recently as 72 hours ago. So this thing wasn’t planned more than a week ago. At the most. That means the campaign is being damn tight lipped about it which is out of the ordinary for them. Now that has me really thinking. Something don’t sit right here. Why send the #2 right down to the GOP convention? What is the purpose? Leak the trip, but don’t say anything substantial regarding the reason for the trip. Just a publicity stunt? An attempt at poking the eye of the Romney team?
That don’t add up for. Not even close. So I’m asking around some more. And I’m not the only one. Nothing is coming back. Finally get a call into the Old Man. Alert him to my concerns. Within 30 minutes he gets back to me. We got legit Intel from military source. Nothing concrete. Which got our source’s attention. That is a big red alert. This thing is being planned. Staged. Might be a handful of local law enforcement in on it. Apparently a related communication from DHS within the last 24 hrs. Union thugs. Got to be a Jarrett Gerard initiated plan. Something along those lines.
I’m giving you and your readers a heads up here. False flag. The real deal. They will try and control it but make it look uncontrolled. Dangerous. Make it reflect poorly on the Republicans and their supporters. A dangerous and desperate operation here. Even a dimwit like Biden has to know how dangerous.
So have everyone you can reach, all your readers, let them know. Obama operatives are attempting a set up here. Dimes to dollars that’s what is going down.
We’re huge fans of the White House Insider, and we note that most of what’s in those dispatches tends to pan out in some form or fashion.
On this one, we’re not so sure.
What we’re thinking is this: they’re going to send Biden to Tampa and he’s going to give a speech or two to some Democrat constituencies, and he’s going to say something offensive along the lines of “They gonna put y’all in chains” to rile ’em up. The White House is probably thinking it’s a Hail Mary and it will probably be a disaster, which is more or less all Biden is capable of, but if it’s a disaster it will be subsumed by other events in Tampa and it will get lost in the news cycle – so no real damage will get done.
But in the event that Biden is actually able to score some points, they’re thinking the alphabet soup networks will make a big deal out of it and they’ll be able to trump the RNC.
Whether Biden’s going to Tampa to stir up union goons to beat up convention delegates and start a riot, etc., we’re not really on board with. Not that it would be a big surprise, mind you; there were thugs and goons aplenty in Minneapolis four years ago and they did start a riot at the RNC. Those were anarchists rather than union people.
But it’s worth watching.
A parting thought, though, which to us makes it seem unlikely they’re planning a major “incident” in Tampa – if something like that was going to happen, why would you send Biden down there? If, let’s say, SEIU and the New Black Panthers storm the convention hall and people get hurt, why would the Obama campaign want any of their people anywhere around there with their fingerprints on such a horror show?
That doesn’t much seem like good politics, does it?
