• Controlled media ignores assassination attempts.
By John Tiffany —
Is the constant demonizing of Donald J. Trump by the United States establishment media effectively encouraging would-be assassins?
It would seem serious assassination attempts on Trump are increasing, though you wouldn’t believe it if you just read the mainstream press. The most recent bid to kill the out-spoken populist presidential candidate was carried out by an illegal alien in late June, but the corporate media largely failed to cover it.
On June 21, British national Michael Steven Sandford, who had overstayed his visa and was in the U.S. illegally, tried to kill Donald Trump in the Mystere Theater in the Treasure Island Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Sandford has freely admitted he had intended to kill Trump. He believed he could seize a policeman’s pistol and get off a round or two, and expected to be killed in the process. Thankfully, the cop was able to fight off Sandford, and the illegal alien wound up in jail. On July 6, Sandford pleaded guilty to several charges, including being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm.
According to news reports, Sandford drove to Las Vegas from New Jersey sometime in mid-June. Arriving in Vegas on or around June 16, he went to a gun range to learn how to shoot on June 17.
Sandford is described as not mentally ill, but he does have some issues. His mother said he was autistic, obsessive-compulsive, “lovesick,” and anorexic, and had attempted suicide in the past.
The Secret Service agent who questioned Sandford said the young fellow would certainly try again to kill Trump if released from custody.
Sandford’s father, Paul Davey, told The News of Portsmouth, England, “He’s never shown any violent tendencies before.” Davey suggested someone must have “blackmailed” his son or put him up to it. “That’s the only thing me and his mum can think of,” he added.
In another high-profile case, on March 12, Thomas DiMassimo, 22, allegedly rushed the stage in Vandalia, Ohio, where Trump was addressing a crowd. There was evidence the deranged individual was wielding a ceramic knife and may have cut a guard’s hand while trying to stab Trump. The Fairborn, Ohio man, who is a former child actor, was taken down by guards and hustled away without getting to his intended victim.
DiMassimo can be seen in video footage dragging an American flag on the ground in some sort of protest and has also sought attention by burning a Confederate flag. He calls himself a civil rights advocate. He was charged with disorderly conduct and inducing panic. He pleaded not guilty, his attorney claiming he was merely trying to air his political views.
Given the recent attacks on police officers around the U.S., some people expect the attempts on Trump’s life to only get worse.
