BILL BERKOWITZ FOR BUZZFLASH AT TRUTHOUT
In 2010, Harold Camping, a founder, and at the time president of Family Stations, Inc., an Oakland, California-based religious broadcasting network, made his boldest proclamation ever: He prophesized that the Day of Judgment would be May 21, 2011, and the world would end on October 21 of that year. May 21 passed without The Rapture, and October 21 was a day like all days ... followed by October 22, 23, and so on and so on and doobie doobie doobie, as Sly and the Family Stone famously sang.
Now, along comes Larry Klayman -- the founder and former chairman of Judicial Watch who is now running a group call Freedom Watch --with his own End Times scenario. This time, however, the only target for Klayman's End Times is President Barack Obama.
Klayman is advocating a November 19, uprising that will jam the streets of Washington, D.C., and force the removal of Obama from the White House.
In a piece published at Renew America and titled "Obama's reckoning to come on November 19!: Klayman Calls for the Masses to Force Resignation of Convicted President," Klayman maintained that Obama was recently convicted by "a people's court of defrauding the American people and Floridians by proffering them with a fake birth certificate."
Klayman wrote: "The day of reckoning has come. Obama, having failed to plead in response to the indictment that was served upon him, waived his right to a jury trial. Thumbing his nose at We the People, as the citizens' prosecutor, I appeared before a citizens' court judge and presented evidence from Cold Case Posse investigator Michael Zullo showing that Obama tricked voters into electing him in 2008 and 2012. As a result, the citizens' judge found him guilty on two counts of falsifying information to federal and state election officials. He was thus sentenced to the maximum prison term for these offenses of 10 years, and ordered to immediately surrender himself into the custody of the citizens of the United States and Florida."
A "cowering" Obama will not yield power easily, Klayman pointed out. Therefore, he is calling on the multitudes "who have been appalled and disgusted by Obama's criminality – his Muslim, socialist, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, anti-white, pro-illegal immigrant, pro-radical gay and lesbian agenda – among other outrages, to descend on Washington, D.C., en masse, [on November 19] and demand that he leave town and resign from office if he does not want to face prison time."
Klayman is advocating the complete shut down of the nation's capital "by blocking roads and massing in front of the White House chanting for Obama to get out of our nation's capital." He also "propose[s] bringing the victims of his reign of terror to a podium across from the White House in Lafayette Park to give their testimony on how he has singularly severely harmed and in some instances even killed their loved ones through his actions."
Klayman, a former federal prosecutor in the administration of President Ronald Reagan, "is a lawyer with a long history of filing suits to make the government open its records; he attracted a lot of attention during the Clinton scandals, and he has continued to take the authorities to court under Bush and Obama," Reason's Jesse Walker recently pointed out. "Sometimes these suits have exposed genuinely significant information, and sometimes they have led Klayman into, ah, weirder territories."
According to People for the American Way's Right Wing Watch, Klayman has been plowing Obama-bashing ground for quite some time.
In July, Klayman predicted that "President Obama's supposed drive to 'refashion the nation through intimidation and threat, in his own Muslim, socialist image' will push the US military into removing him as leader, just as the Egyptian military deposed Mohamed Morsi.
He claims that Obama, 'like Morsi before his downfall,' is 'pushing the American people to the limit' and 'playing with fire among the military.'"
