The dirty tricksters were up to their old games this weekend when a man at a Trump rally forced an incident that nearly shut down the political gathering. What the dirty tricksters failed to realize was that the name of this supposedly innocent man showed up multiple times in documents leaked by WikiLeaks on its website.

The latest disruption at a Donald Trump campaign rally, this time in Reno, Nev. where the Republican presidential nominee was speaking on Nov. 4, turned particularly dramatic when Secret Service protective agents shrouded the candidate as they rushed him off-stage to safety. Some people went so far as to call it an assassination attempt on the billionaire presidential candidate, but the truth may be even more bizarre.
Austyn Crites—who has been a registered Republican since 2011, according to “Heavy.org,” but now supports Hillary Clinton—was at the front of the large crowd when he raised a “Republicans Against Trump” sign over his head.
CNN reports a Secret Service statement said an unidentified person shouted “gun” as Crites was being tackled by the crowd. Law enforcement officers rushed in and carried him away.
Crites told the media that law enforcement “saved” him from the violent crowd, and on Saturday told a Guardian reporter of his harrowing few seconds of fame, “I knew I could die at that moment.”
Trump returned to the stage in about five minutes to finish his speech. He later tweeted his appreciation to law enforcement and said, “Nothing will stop us—we will make America great again!”
No gun was found either on Crites or in a search of the surrounding area, and Crites was released without charges a short time later.
He then wrote on his now-defunct Facebook page, in part, “I have NO connection with the Clinton campaign . . .” and continued, “. . . we cannot allow a fascist/dictator to take our beloved freedoms to simply boost his ego and ‘get back’ at anyone who disagrees. Take what happened to me tonight as a classic example of dictator incitement of violence—against your own Republican brother with a stupid sign.”
Sounds innocent enough. After all, he was just holding “a stupid sign.”
But intrepid investigators almost immediately uncovered information about Crites that should cause a questioning mind to wonder which camp of dirty tricksters he may have been working for.
First, Crites’s name shows up in the WikiLeaks Global Intelligence Files, which consist of “over five million e-mails from the Texas headquartered ‘global intelligence’ company Stratfor . . ..” dated between 2004 and 2011. Austyn Crites, it turns out, has a long and sordid history with Stratfor, as his name appears seven times in those emails.
WikiLeaks explains the significance of the Stratfor emails as revealing “the inner workings of a company that fronts as an intelligence publisher, but provides confidential intelligence services to large corporations, such as Bhopal’s Dow Chemical Co., Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and government agencies, including the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Marines and the U.S. Defence Intelligence Agency. The emails show Stratfor’s web of informers, pay-off structure, payment laundering techniques, and psychological methods.”
“ActivistPost.com” notes, “When you put this all together, it’s pretty hard not to think about the Project Veritas videos.” These undercover videos “allegedly showed Democratic operatives planting people to incite violence at Trump rallies.”
ABC News is reporting today, Nov. 7, a man has come forward claiming that he responded to a Craigslist ad and “was given $3,500 to protest Donald Trump’s rally in Fountain Hills.” Paul Horner, 37, continued, “The actual check I received after I was done with the job was from a group called ‘Women Are The Future’.”
And while the Clinton campaign originally denied the allegations, when Trump confronted Mrs. Clinton on the matter during the final presidential debate she remained silent, neither confirming or denying it.
Was Crites simply holding “a stupid sign” or was he doing the dirty work of behind-the-scenes powerbrokers intent on influencing this presidential election?
The establishment elites are deathly afraid of the significance of electing someone like Trump and what it will mean for their hold on power. As a result, they have stopped at nothing to discredit Trump and, more importantly, the populist revolution he has inspired.
With only one day to go before the election, the Republican and Democrat appear to be neck and neck. But should Trump lose in key states like Nevada or Pennsylvania, he does not stand a chance.
