Is U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch coordinating with Black Lives Matter activists to disrupt the upcoming Republican and Democratic National Conventions so that martial law will be declared and the elections suspended/indefinitely postponed? This allegation is the subject of hundreds of articles regarding a series of purported direct messages between three leading Black Lives Matter activists.
What we do know
On Friday, June 10, 2016, Black Lives Matter (BLM) leader and former Baltimore Mayoral Candidate DeRay McKesson claimed that someone hacked into his phone and took control of his twitter account. DeRay McKesson reported the hack to The Baltimore Sun. On June 11, 2016, a twitter user who calls himself The Saint (@TheSaintNegro) tweeted what he claims are private direct-message conversations that occurred on June 10 between DeRay McKesson and Johnetta Elzie, in which the two discussed coordination of plans to cause the declaration of martial law through disruptive protests and direct action at the upcoming Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, and the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, PA.
The messages claim the endorsement and support of U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Their alleged goal, as stated in the messages, is to cancel the Presidential election and keep Barack Obama in office, while also giving him a justification to attempt a declaration of martial law (something nowhere authorized by the Constitution – see below). The private direct message conversation over the course of several days between BLM activists DeRay McKesson, Johnetta Elzie, and Samuel Sinyangwe has been reported as follows:
JOHNETTA ELZIE: “Have you spoken with Mrs. Lynch [Attorney General Loretta Lynch] recently about the plan for the summer and fall leading up to the elections.”
DERAY MCKESSON: “We spoke two weeks and they want us to start really pushing how racist Trump is now instead of waiting so the others can start getting the protesters ready to shut both conventions down.”
DERAY MCKESSON: “If we can get both conventions shut down for messing over Bernie and for having racist Trump, then get martial law declared so Obama can stay in office we will win. Call you soon when I get to my dads so I can use his landline and we can talk more on this.”
DERAY MCKESSON: “We have to make sure that we use our voices to keep people disrupting Trump all summer and through the fall so martial law can be declared….”
SAMUEL SINYANGWE: “I wanted to touch base with you about the summer of chaos. So far we have over 2,000 people bused in from different cities and another 6,000 to 8,000 expected to drive into Cleveland for the Convention.”
SAMUEL SINYANGWE: “They will not be ready for the crowds we are bringing and they will blame Trump for it, especially if we shut it down. The GOP will have to replace him at that point or we will continue the disruptions nationwide.”
DERAY MCKESSON: “I will pass the info along. Good work, Sam. You never let us down. It’s so important we stop Trump. He can not be president. He will destroy everything we worked so hard for and we can’t trust….”
DERAY MCKESSON: “…today and he [Sam?] confirmed that there will be around 10,000 protesters disrupting the [Republican] convention. Plans are being made for other cities as well for upcoming Trump events. Ads have already been placed looking for people to help. I know you don’t care for them [white people] but this is the time we need our white allies doing a lot of the work for us. They are the ones who listen the best.”
JOHNETTA ELZIE: “That will put fear into the GOP and the country when they can’t have their convention for all their racist supporting Trump. We’ve worked too hard and closely with the Obama administration to have that racist ass take it all away and Hillary…. You know I can’t stand those white allies, but yo right this is the best to use them. They hang on every word you say and will do whatever is asked. I just hate all that kiss ass they try to do. Like that changes who they are.”
DERAY MCKESSON: “We have a lot of white allies volunteering for Trump’s campaign to pass along information to us before it’s made public so we know when rallies are coming up before they are announced. That way we can plan major disruptions in those cities in advance. We just have to keep our names out of this and let these [white] people do the work for us by pushing how Trump’s racist ways will destroy….”
JOHNETTA ELZIE: “That’s all those white people are good for in my eyes. I couldn’t imagine even pretending to like that racist ass Trump even to get info on his events. I’ll be glad when we shut his ass down.”
DERAY MCKESSON: “With the support we have from Mrs. Lynch and the help we’ve got from Sam and others it won’t be hard to cause enough….”
Other related events
At the Aspen Ideas Festival, DeRay McKesson discussed plans for protests during the DNC and RNC, as reported by USA Today. He also discussed reservations regarding Hillary Clinton and his total distain for Donald Trump, whom he called “evil.”
You can watch the video of the interview here.
It is interesting to note that Attorney General Loretta Lynch and DeRay McKesson were both speakers at the 2016 Aspen Ideas Festival. There are speculative reports of the two meeting during this event. What is known is that DeRay has been in attendance at meetings with the Attorney General over the past year.
We know that Samuel Sinyangwe had an exchange with a follower on twitter asking about the above messages. Samuel claims they are “photoshopped tweets Trump supporters are dumb enough to believe”. We also know that following the release of the messages above, federal agents from the FBI, DHS, and Secret Service began knocking on the doors of BLM activists and community organizers in Cleveland asking about their plans for disrupting the RNC. Yesterday evening (July 5, 2016), DeRay posted the following message on twitter referencing an article about Donald Trump:
DERAY MCKESSON: “he has to be stopped.”
Analysis and Conclusion:
I have asked technicians that are experts in Photoshop to review the purported messages. These technicians reported that many of the images are either legitimate or done by someone with significant skills. They tell me that to replicate some of the images would take hundreds of hours. They also reported that most of the images are exactly 576×1024 pixels at 24 bit depth 96dpi with no detectable fragments or overlays. They reported that most of the images are what would be expected from an HTC One phone. They also reported that in order to replicate some of the images as presented with various scroll positions would be extremely difficult. This information, coupled with the known facts above lead me to the following conclusions:
- The Black Lives Matter leadership and membership would prefer that Barack Obama remain in office.
- Significant protests are being orchestrated by the Black Lives Matter leadership for both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions.
- Most likely some of the images are real. Their existence could either be factual as reported above or part of an elaborate hoax to generate support for protests concocted by the Black Lives Matter leadership.
- Whether the images are real or not, there are no facts that confirm the participation of the Attorney General.
- If the reported discussions and support of the Attorney General are factual, we will find out soon enough.
Please review my previous two articles on the protests planned for the Republican and Democratic National Conventions for additional information:

COMMENT BY STEWART RHODES:
The first thing I thought of when I heard about these alleged leaked messages was Matt Bracken’s excellent short story, “What I Saw at the Coup” (highly recommended reading!). That is how it would turn out for these Marxist “useful idiots” if they actually tried to implement martial law.
As one of our commenters said below, these “activists” really have no idea what a serious hornets nest they are kicking if they think they can successfully help Obama to an unconstitutional “third term” by means of manufactured crisis and a subsequent declaration of “martial law.” All that would do is spark open armed conflict between “them” and us – with us being the great mass of the warrior class of America – the military (current serving and veterans) and the gun owners. The Marxists have not yet successfully indoctrinated the majority of that American warrior class to be subservient slaves/unthinking enforcers, nor have they disarmed us, but because Marxists often believe their own bull, and project onto us their own cowardice and incompetence, they may well actually believe they could pull it off.
But as Cal so ably pointed out in the comments section below, and as Dr. Edwin Vieira has written about extensively, there is no such thing as “martial law” in our Constitution or in our system of government established by it. Go ahead and look. You will not find that term anywhere in the text of the Constitution. Nor will you find that term in any of the state constitutions. It is an illegitimate figment of the heated imaginations of regime bootlickers and wanna-be tyrants. And we know it, which is precisely why it is specifically listed as #4 in our Declaration of Orders We Will Not Obey:
4. We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state, or to enter with force into a state, without the express consent and invitation of that state’s legislature and governor.
One of the causes of the American Revolution was the attempt “to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power” by disbanding the Massachusetts legislature and appointing General Gage as “military governor.” The attempt to disarm the people of Massachusetts during that martial law sparked our Revolution. Accordingly, the power to impose martial law – the absolute rule over the people by a military officer with his will alone being law – is nowhere enumerated in our Constitution.
Further, it is the militia of a state and of the several states that the Constitution contemplates being used in any context, during any emergency within a state, not the standing army.
The imposition of martial law by the national government over a state and its people, treating them as an occupied enemy nation, is an act of war. Such an attempted suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights voids the compact with the states and with the people.
And very closely related is #3 of our Declaration:
3. We will NOT obey any order to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to trial by military tribunal.
One of the causes of the American Revolution was the denial of the right to jury trial, the use of admiralty courts (military tribunals) instead, and the application of the laws of war to the colonists. After that experience, and being well aware of the infamous Star Chamber in English history, the Founders ensured that the international laws of war would apply only to foreign enemies, not to the American people. Thus, the Article III Treason Clause establishes the only constitutional form of trial for an American, not serving in the military, who is accused of making war on his own nation. Such a trial for treason must be before a civilian jury, not a tribunal.
The international laws of war do not trump our Bill of Rights. We reject as illegitimate any such claimed power, as did the Supreme Court in Ex Parte Milligan (1865). Any attempt to apply the laws of war to American civilians, under any pretext, such as against domestic “militia” groups the government brands “domestic terrorists,” is an act of war and an act of treason.
Both of those are toward the front of our Declaration for very good reasons. “Martial law” is simply the unlimited will of the commander on the battlefield, and is what we imposed on defeated foreign enemy nations such as occupied Germany or Japan (in Japan, General MacArthur ruled the Japanese as a supreme, unlimited ruler, subject only to the laws of war, during the occupation). There is no power anywhere granted by our Constitution for any branch of the federal government to treat the American people as an occupied enemy nation. And any attempt to impose “martial law” and suspend elections will be treated as a bright line trip wire and will bring on open armed conflict between the regime and we of the American warrior class – and it well should. When those in government positions attempt to suspend the very Constitution that created the offices they hold, and attempt to unleash unlimited military power on the people, it is an act of war against the Republic, and against the people, and thus an act of open treason, and at that point, we will be duty bound to resist it with arms, just as our forefathers were duty bound to resist General Gage’s “martial law” usurpation and tyranny with arms. We are on the eve of such a conflict, yet again (and that is unfortunately true even if these messages are fake, since the modern “long train of abuses” is amply evident without them). And I believe enough of us in the warrior class know and understand this, and see this whole regime as fundamentally illegitimate, that whatever the excuse, it would not be accepted and we would fight.
Because it is such an important topic, I will write more extensively on this, and what must be done now to counter such plans and prepare for what is coming (hint: got CPT? Got neighborhood watch? Got town civil defense? Got posse? Got Militia?).
Back to these messages: Given what Jack has said about the difficulty in faking such messages, and given the fact that there is no indication that Deray is trying to get Twitter to take down the postings by the alleged hacker, I tend to think the messages are real, and the hacker merely hacked Deray’s phone and obtained access to those real messages. However, even if the messages were not real, they certainly are in line with the very publicly stated intent of radical Marxist groups to disrupt and “shut down” both the RNC and the DNC, as Jack has so ably documented in the above linked articles. See especially this one, and pay close attention to his July 4 update at the end.
And that is why I lean toward thinking the messages are real – they fit right in with the radical Marxist mindset and world-view of such “activists” and as I said in my comment yesterday on Black Lives Matter already ramping up for riots in response to the Baton Rouge shooting, I consider them to be a Marxist front organization much like La Raza, meant to divide Americans along racial lines and cause as much chaos and destruction as possible, all in the name of the communist revolution (at least in the minds of the “useful idiot” activists, while the international elites who fund them, like George Soros, have other plans). All of this, combined with the wide open borders and massive influx of illegal aliens, and the wide open immigration of Muslim “refugees” who are being encouraged to not assimilate, and the clear and present danger from ISIL (ISIS) terror cells among them, is part of that massive Fourth Generation Warfare destabilization campaign I, Matt Bracken, and others have been warning about for years.
Remember that manufactured emergencies, declarations of martial law, and suspension of elections, are right out of the totalitarian playbook throughout history, whether carried out by fascists such as Hitler, Mussolini, or Franco, or by communists such as in China, Russia, Poland, Czechoslovakia, etc. It is what tyrants do, and in particular, what Marxists do (and “fascists” such as Hitler and Mussolini were really just nationalist Marxists – national socialists).
I am tempted to say “throw us in that briar patch” but I can’t in good conscience wish for it, because I know the hell that would be. But we will likely go there regardless, so get ready. Got buddy team? Got fire-team? Got squad? God neighborhood watch? Got town watch? Got posse? Got militia? Get busy. Get ready.
For the Republic,
