Trump’s inauguration under attack (Guests: Faith Goldy, Cassandra Fairbanks)

Lauren SouthernArchive

The inauguration is coming up fast, and The Rebel is going to be right there in the thick of it! 

We knew protests were going to happen, but we did not expect the type of organized violence that has been exposed these last few days.

James O’Keefe and Project Veritas uncovered plans to attack the Deploraball and other inauguration events that Faith Goldy and I will be covering. What are our plans to defend ourselves from radical leftists? Where is the national conversation on leftwing political violence?

I speak with our own Faith Goldy and Sputnik International’s Cassandra Fairbanks about the leaked videos and our hopes and fears for the inauguration!

Cassandra should join Lauren and Faith at The Rebel.

There was already an assassination attempt on Trump. Some British guy tried to take a gun from a guard or a cop at a Trump rally during the campaign.

Great to see a Bernie defector wake up and come to the “right” side. Tell her to bring a friend or two with her.
To anyone else out there changing teams – welcome … and enjoy the ride. You’re about to learn what it feels like to be a winner. No more whining … only WINNING.

- You Rebels have guts – have to hand it to you. Looking forward to the inauguration. “Progressives” project their failings onto others. That’s their thing. Whatever they’re accusing their opponents of, they are doing the same ore worse.

You Know back in 1933 a young communist hot head named Marinus van der Lubbe got this bright idea that if he burned down the Reichstag it would bring about a state of emergency and the overthrow of Adolf Hitler who’s hold on power was extremely tenuous at that point in time. Everybody Marinus knew hated Hitler….what could go wrong?

A good friend of mine in the Ukraine is worried Trump might become the next " Archduke Ferdinand ".
Let’s hope not.

I thought it interesting and ominous, that they played the assassination of Abe Lincoln on TV last night. I too hope and pray that Trump is not assassinated!
commented 2017-01-18 10:29:12 -0500
Well, whether the Veritas videos are true or fake, we can be certain that there will be protests at Trumps’ Inauguration.

If the protests are peaceful and in accordance with the law, then they are good protests, even though I personally do not agree with them. However if they are violent, then the violent protesters must be arrested, hopefully before they do any damage or kill anyone.

I fully expect there to be an assassination attempt on Trump. I hope it fails, the US … and Canada and the rest of the planet need a strong USA again. I am looking forward to an eight year Trump administration.

Ya, I saw that too. I am not sure I buy that news piece, and let’s not forget RT can be biased as well, it just depends on the subject.
I also read RT on a regular basis.

Yes Jay, I am responding to you.
You want the rest of us to believe you are a legitimate commentator here?
I have scorned you several times for your leftwing outrageous posts on the rebel.
Your problem is the legion of common sense readers that you have offended with your leftist diatribe and uninformed leftist biased BS is endless.
As far as America goes, I lived and served in that country for four years, so I have some experience with the US, especially when Bill Clinton got elected and gutted the military pay across the board.
Clinton who enabled the Serbs to slaughter thousands of innocents because he wanted it to appear America called the shots in Bosnia.
America would have been so much safer and better off with Hillary Clinton as President right Jay?
Since you were heavily praising and endorsing her during the electoral campaign?
Get a clue Jay,
Karma is going to find you someday if you do not pull your head out of your ass…..

Congressman John Lewis and the House Democrats make their futile protests to offset the growing sense of irrelevancy they are all feeling. They strive desperately to justify their own pathetic lives and their bloated government pay cheques. They know instinctively that if Trump succeeds and the American people win, then bottom feeders like them all lose.
commented 2017-01-18 03:08:56 -0500
Here is a crazy idea. Get hired to be one of those professional protesters. Maybe get Menzoid to do it.
commented 2017-01-18 01:52:14 -0500
RT reported today a 10 second news clip that the Project Veritas video was actually right wing activists masquerading as left wing extremists. Not sure what to think of that and I did not see a repeat of this info as they usually do throughout the day. Could have been a mistake as RT is fairly reliable and I don’t get why they would publish BS.
commented 2017-01-18 01:32:03 -0500
A lot of people who had intended to go to the Inauguration Ceremony are changing their minds. Beside threats from the idiot Left, they fear an attack from the Death Cult called Islam, who are very peed of at Trump and crazy enough to stage another 9/11 style attack.
Trump has stated that he dose not care if nobody attends, joking of course.

Good Show Lauren, You and your guests look so much nicer than Ezra. (No offence meant Ezra) lol.
commented 2017-01-18 01:09:01 -0500
Jay he won the election fair and square , get over it. And who gives a damn if phony hypocrite celebs are not their in huge numbers. And it will be a fun time , just not for childish and violent left wingers. Of course if they do anything you will blame Trump for their actions like the stooge you are.

Arlene May said.. “Hopefully saner heads realize all these temper tantrums and the grandstanding are making the United States look ridiculous.”
I’m sure it couldn’t be any worse than how Justin Trudeau looks on the international stage with the world knowing he was voted there.!
commented 2017-01-18 00:09:50 -0500
This thing the left loves to scream (like little Jay said below) " … even though Hillary Clinton had more votes in the election … " is a load of meaningless shit.

When the democratic system works for the left, they are all fine with it, but as soon as the very same democratic system does not work in their favor, the little babies cry that the system is unfair.

Jay Kelly, you are an immature little child. Grow up a be a man. Trump won, so suck it up little buttercup.
commented 2017-01-18 00:05:34 -0500
Jay you’re a moron… More of the popular vote stupid… you know the one where they stand outside and ask the people who they voted for coming out of the polls. The actual vote was a landslide in favor of Donald Trump even with “Hillary’s fix” implemented.
There is a difference between “popular vote” and “physical vote”. The left is so delusional they can’t get over it that the majority has spoken, the people have been heard and they want a responsible government not a pay for play out of the most criminal organization at a political level on the planet.
You should be thankful that Hillary and Justin are not colluding together over North America as we speak.!!

Brent Horton, you make quite a comment!

I do not know you, and I do not recall responding to you before. You said of me: “you are the most uninformed, off the cuff snowflake”. What are you getting at? The Rebel welcomes comments, including mine. You say I have “left-wing ideology”.

What are you getting at? Trump’s inauguration will be very different than previous ones because of the United States’ perception of him. I am not an American and neither are you. Canadians have a certain freedom to comment on matters south of the border.

My point was that what is normally a celebratory event — the inauguration of a President — is going to be toned down this year.

Did you intend to make a comment about the inauguration, or about me?
commented 2017-01-17 23:56:25 -0500
I watched the first Project Veritas video and was appalled. It was like watching a bunch of pre-teen boys getting ready to egg their principals house. Is this about Trump or about playing out some sort of fantasy in which they can be the star, complete with snickers and giggles? Where are the grown-ups to keep these kiddies in line? Hopefully saner heads realize all these temper tantrums and the grandstanding are making the United States look ridiculous.
commented 2017-01-17 23:39:04 -0500
I think the only blowing on this site is done by you.
Some day your left wing ideology is going to send to the dentist.
You are the most uninformed, off the cuff snowflake to comment on this site.
commented 2017-01-17 23:27:21 -0500
The Rebel has blown a good part of its budget to send reporters to Washington for the inauguration of Donald Trump. The inauguration of a United States President is normally a happy spectacle, with bands, parades, and balls.

This is normally a celebratory event. It is not a political news event so much as a social event to be reported on. In the past people were looking for reports on gowns, musicians, celebrities, and so on.

This year it will be more subdued than normal, partly because Donald Trump was elected even though Hillary Clinton had more votes in the election. Most formal balls and big-name musicians have cancelled.

Let’s trust that The Rebel will provide some reportage. It would be great to hear opinions of mainstream Americans. Hopefully Faith Goldy and Lauren Southern will not be embarrassed by events and will report some conservative views.

Little tip about protection. Since I’ve started wearing glasses I’m impressed at how they protect your eyes from wind or anything else that flies through the air, except the one time a bee flew between my face and my glasses and it stung me below the eye as I frantically batted the glasses off my face.
Maybe get clear glasses for eye protection as you mentioned paint throwing. Get some that grip your head enough that they don’t fall off if you look down and gently shake your head, but not so tight they will give you a headache if worn for a few hours. Just thinking about some of my favorite Rebels.

If COMET PIZZA got stink bombed would anybody cry about it?
commented 2017-01-17 21:52:23 -0500
for god’s sake Lauren, please be careful. that goes for Faith Goldy as well. I prayed to god for your safety. the sad reality is you both are irreplaceable and all of us are concerned you could get hurt or killed in the crossfire. I understand you are both brave souls and that is one thing we admire. these leftists are crazy and i wouldn’t put anything passed them. an even sadder truth is you might bare witness to the assassination of Trump ,god forbid. for all intents and purposes many people who I have talked to believe he will get assassinated and the US will break out into a civil war unlike anything we have ever known in the history of America. this will destroy the whole international monetary system causing a collapse worse than the 30’s. Canada will be effected by this worse than most people know. I thank you for what you are doing.

The latest news is that Project Veritas’s videos exposing the anarchist plots has caused them to drastically scale back their efforts.

Hope the DC cops have lots of CS gas and them fancy new microwave crowd control weapons. Going out for popcorn and beer to watch this last dying gasp of the loony left as they hit a Trump era populist wave and disappear.

Rubber bullets and tasers! You wanna protest , do it some place else , other wise it’s time for pain!
