“You Say You Want a Revolution . . .” GOP Candidate Suggests Rebellion Is Option If Elections Fail To Achieve Changes

In Texas, Stephen Broden, a pastor and Republican congressional candidate, appears to have a back-up plan if he loses to Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson in Dallas 30th Congressional District. Broden refused to rule out armed rebellion if the elections to do result in a suitable change in leadership.

Broden said a violent uprising “is not the first option,” but it is “on the table.” Broden insisted that, absent constitutional changes, there may be no alternative. Quite simply, “the Framers say if that don’t work, revolution.”

He added “[i]f the government is not producing the results or has become destructive to the ends of our liberties, we have a right to get rid of that government and to get rid of it by any means necessary.” He does reassure fellow citizens that “it is not the first option.”

Broden previously argued that the housing and economic crisis were contrived by the Obama Administration.

For Johnson, Broden is Godsend. As we previously discussed, she has been criticized for giving 23 scholarships over five years to two of her grandsons, two children of her nephew, and two children of her top aide in Dallas. Broden has been running on the issue until he decided to add rebellion to his platform.

Rev. Broden appears to have been the subject of the Beatles decades before his run for Congress:

You say you got a real solution
Well you know
We’d all want to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well you know
We’re all doing what we can
But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is brother you’ll have to wait
Don’t you know it’s gonna be alright [x4]

You say you’ll change the constitution
Well you know
We’d all love to change your head
You tell me it’s the institution
Well you know
You better free your mind instead

  1. Regarding a “rebellion”, from my vantage point, they’re already working the streets. Their vigilantes are “out and about” terrorizing good people; snitches and informants are being used “en masse”; and the FBI’s COINTELPRO is alive and well, but apparently on steroids. I often ask myself if I’m really living in America.

  2. The most transparent administration ever.

    Officials at the Treasury Department’s Office of Financial Stability contracted with a small consulting firm that has given nearly $25,000 to Democratic candidates since 2005 (and no money to Republicans) to hire “Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Analysts to support the Disclosure Services, Privacy and Treasury Records.” The firm is currently advertising a job opening for a FOIA analyst with experience in the “Use of FOIA/PA exemptions to withhold information from release to the public” (emphasis mine, and if that link goes down, The Examiner has kept a copy for its records).

    UPDATE: Phacil has changed their job description on their website (without making a note), however here is a link to another job description for the same job that still uses the above as a qualification. They also have not yet returned calls to The Examiner. The side by side comparison of the old and modified versions are at the bottom of this post.

    This means that the entire OFS, which is tasked with overseeing the Troubled Asset Relief Program, is trying to hire people who will withhold information from release to the public.

  3. Man said he voted straight-party ticket and got opposite results

    A Craven County voter says he had a near miss at the polls on Thursday when an electronic voting machine completed his straight-party ticket for the opposite of what he intended.

    Sam Laughinghouse of New Bern said he pushed the button to vote Republican in all races, but the voting machine screen displayed a ballot with all Democrats checked. He cleared the screen and tried again with the same result, he said. Then he asked for and received help from election staff.

    “They pushed it twice and the same thing happened,” Laughinghouse said. “That was four times in a row. The fifth time they pushed it and the Republicans came up and I voted.”

  4. LAS VEGAS — Some voters in Boulder City complained on Monday that their ballot had been cast before they went to the polls, raising questions about Clark County’s electronic voting machines.

    Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid’s name was already checked.

    Ferrara said she wasn’t alone in her voting experience. She said her husband and several others voting at the same time all had the same thing happen.

    “Something’s not right,” Ferrara said. “One person that’s a fluke. Two, that’s strange. But several within a five minute period of time — that’s wrong.”


  5. Oh ok, I get it. Yeah election fraud happens every election and sometimes you just can’t do anything about it. See ya Chad, Good to see you still hangin around.

    Research is your specialty.

    and a little investigative skills

    It’s always been like that. The number one rule when you start is look in the trash first.

  6. Henmen,

    Eh, I’m poorly edited, and playing catch with a two year old a good chunk of the time I’m posting, “You don’t need the bullet when you’ve got the Ballot.”

  7. Bdaman- When I said, “Bdaman-You forgot to mention ACORN. Rush is going to spank you.”, that was sarcasm, not a request for additional research on ACORN. Research is your specialty-mine is sarcasm, slapstick humor, and an occasional rant about something I care about. I don’t care about Obama’s past or two scary pantomime “Black Panthers” who apparently brought down our system of free elections. If you are concerned about honest elections, do some research on Diebold and how an unknown man with no money, no advertising, and no campaign won the South Carolina Democratic Primary for the United States Senate. This is REAL election fraud, not two pathetic losers in clownish uniforms standing in a polling place. Republican harping about election fraud is a transparent attempt to frighten Americans into accepting the fascist concept of a “National ID Card” which must be presented in order to vote. The real purpose, of course, is to disenfranchise minorities and senior citizens who tend to vote for Democrats.

    Bdaman- You forgot to mention ACORN. Rush is going to spank you.

    Remember this is suppose to be the most transparent administration ever. Sunshine is suppose to be the best disinfectant.

    The Obama administration is stonewalling efforts on two fronts to investigate the still-operating ACORN and uncover what aid administration officials offered the radical advocacy group infamous for its thug tactics and election fraud.

    The Obama administration is sitting on Capital Research Center’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that seeks correspondence between Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan and ACORN. HUD rules state that FOIA requests must be answered within 45 days, but at this writing our request has been pending for just over seven months.

    The request was filed because Donovan is a longtime ACORN collaborator. He worked closely with ACORN for five years when he was New York mayor Michael Bloomberg’s housing development commissioner.

    “Perhaps no administration official has had more interaction with Acorn than” Donovan, the New York Times reported. ACORN chief organizer Bertha Lewis admitted as much. “We grew to respect him, and he grew to respect us.”

    The whistleblowers of the left-leaning “ACORN 8” group are learning the hard way that the Obama Department of Justice is just as adept at stonewalling as Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.). Longtime ACORN benefactor Nadler is the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on the Constitution, civil rights, and civil liberties who refused to initiate a probe even when confronted with powerful evidence of ACORN’s wrongdoing.


  9. You should probably just admit Obama and Drew were not classmates and quit while you are ahead.

    Take that up with Drew it’s his claim. We don’t know all the facts as to Obama’s attendance or Drew’s for that matter at Occidental. Nor do you, but I’ll take Drew at his word until the president or someone else can rebuke him or his claim. He has made this claim for over a year.

    You should probably just admit Obama and Drew were not classmates and quit while you are ahead.

    You can pull in as many ringers as you want from Breitbart and they will receive the attention they deserve.

    If I were you, I’d follow Gyges suggestion and attend the ballet; it’s a better use of your time, but you know best what suits you.

  11. Then there is John Holdren the science advisor. Not this guy is whacked out. How Obama picked him we may never know.

    Holdren heralded a “tightly reasoned essay” by law professor Christopher Stone, who said, “I am quite seriously proposing that we give legal rights to forests, oceans, rivers and other so-called ‘natural objects’ in the environment — indeed, to the natural environment as a whole.” Holdren, writing in 1977’s “Ecoscience,” which was also co-authored with Paul and Anne Ehrlich, said the change would have “a most salubrious effect on the quality of the environment.”

    Holdren wrote that “it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”

    In a future society, “It would even be possible to require pregnant single women to marry or have abortions, perhaps as an alternative to placement for adoption, depending on the society,” Holdren and his co-authors wrote

    Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not;
    • The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation’s drinking water or in food;
    • Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise;
    • People who “contribute to social deterioration” (i.e. undesirables) “can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility” — in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized.
    • A transnational “Planetary Regime” should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans’ lives — using an armed international police force if necessary

    He’s the Science Czar

  12. Henman I appreciate it but I think Obama’s actions and the mood of the country speaks for itself.

    Lots of folks compare it to buyers remorse.

  13. Bdaman- If you can tear yourself away from your endless researching of conspiracies involving cabals of scary Black people and Commies of various eras, try a little research on the subject of monomania. It’s a mental disorder that can lead to growing paranoia and difficulty in continuing to function in the real world. Just a friendly suggestion.
