BREAKING OVERNIGHT: Tulsa Mayor Declares a “Civil Emergency” – Orders Immediate Shut Down Curfew Around Trump Rally Venue…

When this story started exploding on social media, I thought it was a joke… but it is not.

Tulsa Oklahoma Mayor G.T. Bynum has declared a “civil emergency” and signed an executive order (outlined below) creating an immediate curfew and locking-down a six block area in and around the BOK Center venue for the Trump rally in the city.  Any MAGA rally attendee who does not immediately vacate the area is subject to arrest.

(Tulsa, Oklahoma) In a Facebook post Thursday evening, Tulsa police announced that an area of downtown will be off limits from 10 p.m. Thursday to 6 a.m. Saturday ahead of the rally. The curfew will again take effect after the rally until 6 a.m. Sunday.

The curfew is the result of an executive order from Mayor G.T. Bynum, which cites both local and nationwide unrest in recent weeks as the rationale for the curfew.

“I have received information from the Tulsa Police Department and other law enforcement agencies that shows that individuals from organized groups who have been involved in destructive or violent behavior in other states are planning to travel to the City of Tulsa for purposes of causing unrest in and around the rally,” the order states.

The curfew affects the area from Archer Street to Sixth Street between Houston Avenue and Boulder Avenue. The people camped outside the BOK Center waiting to get into the rally were being moved out.

Police posted information about the curfew about 45 minutes before it took effect. Those found in violation who refuse to leave will be cited or arrested, according to the Facebook post. (link)

Perhaps there is a legitimate domestic terrorism threat, a “civil emergency”, which requires the curfew approach….

However, one would think if this were not a politically motivated decision, the prudent approach would be to place police in the area as a security precaution.  After all, the maintenance of a curfew perimeter will require a significant police presence to ensure compliance.  So regardless of whether there are people peacefully assembled to attend the rally, a significant police presence is required by the order itself.

Additional details outlined in the Executive Order:

Curfew Restrictions

1. People are prohibited from walking, running, loitering, standing or motoring upon any alley, street, highway, public property, sidewalk, or vacant premises within the boundaries indicated above, except for official designated duty in response to the emergency, providing public safety services, or going to or from a place of residence or work.

2. The manufacture, transfer, use, possession or transportation of a Molotov cocktail or any other device, instrument or object designed to explode or produce uncontained combustion is prohibited within the limits of the City of Tulsa.

3. The transporting, possessing or using of gasoline, kerosene, or combustible, flammable, or explosive liquids or materials in a glass or uncapped container of any kind is prohibited within the limits of the City of Tulsa, except in connection with the normal operation of motor vehicles, normal home use or legitimate commercial use.

We understand that many people are unaware that a curfew will be in place and barricades are still in the process of being setup. If we find anyone in violation of the Executive Order this evening, we will request that they leave the area based on the curfew. If people refuse to leave the area, they may be cited or arrested.  [LINK]

…And so the control mechanisms to block President Trump’s 2020 campaign officially begin.

    I don’t believe for one second the Tulsa mayor cares about President Trump’s or his supporters’ safety. “b-b-b-but the mayor is Republican” means absolutely nothing. So are most of the Never-Trump individuals. This is a ploy, nothing more.

        if the Trump campaign would cordially notify the mayor, et al – spin on a dime – “we do not want to impose on the City of Tulsa overly much, perhaps another time would be better”
        and “poof” as Grandma Covfefe might say, no rally in Tulsa, no Trump supporters show up –
        so all the merchants who have been going through the Coronavirus lockdown and then the George Floyd lockdown will have missed an opportunity to make a little revenue for the city –

        I know here in the Coachella Valley (Palm Springs area), the various events through the year mean a lot to local merchants/restaurants/hotels/motels –

        the tennis games at the Indian Wells Tennis Gardens
        Coachella
        Stagecoach

        also, the various arts festivals, the White Party, golf tournaments – even the dog show!

        I wonder if the President could arrange to come out here – I think WE need some revenue –

        do it at the Classic Club – heck, so darn windy I don’t know how people play golf there but they do – I went to a debate watch party there in 2016 (inside, of course) –

        oh, but our people around here are probably too clueless to jump on the phone and call –

        maybe Ric Grenell could do something about that – there must be some place –

        maybe Larry Ellison would let them use the Indian Wells Tennis Gardens?

        Or would that make all the tennis stars mad and they won’t come to play next year, even if there IS a nice purse?

      I have much respect for Sundance or I would come here. With that said, I don’t agree or disagree, time will tell.

      But I see a pure helpless victim mentality from our side lately where every event is seen as a negative. Our lack of faith and confidence, while may be us being realists and not optimists, is looking more and more as pessimists. If the Mayor and the city didn’t want trump there, they would have just said no. Period.

      Also, this is the president and maybe 100,000 people on the streets with a viable threat anarchists and a volatile situation. The secret service may have needed some of this for protection of our president.

      The defeatists attitude is a downer. We are so defeatists yet all we are willing to do is stay comfortable as our constitutional rights are being eroded. Stay hidden in our houses and never banding together until they are knocking on our front door. I’m guilty also, but I’m not going out into a crowd alone. We need to stop talking about our firearms and ammo and actually organize like they are.

      They own the streets and the political narrative. We act like cattle that can be controlled by 4 cowboys.

      thing is the cops were only asking the rally attendees to get off the sidewalk and behind the barriers and then they would be fine. A few had to move their cars also to keep the road empty. This was done to protect the attendees, not to punish them.

          It equally increases space around the arena – which helps to mitigate others untold plans.

          As the curfew window is lifted, people can enter the rally area (and there can also equally be a sniff of fuel etc.) that occurs.

          Just a guess, that there is mutual cooperation going on with the City, secret service and the Governor….such that a re-start, a re-opening of rallies may successfully re-begin…

            I agree with your request but since these poor souls got “paid, relatively speaking” they can not be defined as slaves…….plus they weren’t black so there’s that NAACP thingy gonna shut that argument down.

            You know what? Those Irish, Polish, Italian, etc immigrants who worked like dogs made this country and what’s even more ironic, they didn’t cry boogie man and ask for free shit.
            They raised their families best they could and survived. Now I’m not saying many black folk didn’t do the same thing and they are the ones who are Blexiting now after seeing what our VSGPDJT has shown them.

            He has shown them that’s it’s not about color, it’s about values and wanting the best for your families. The Damnocrats have killed that message for 60+ years and they still are but so many minorities are seeing the light that the LEFT is scared and trying to bring a race war that isn’t going to happen.

            It is a war between evil and good, not blacks and whites and ALL of us Patriots , black, white, yellow and red will prevail with the help of our President Donald J. Trump and that other force who is always in our heads but never reveals himself, until He decides to.

    One of the tactics of the radical anarchists is to make bogus threats, place bogus 911 calls, and generally cause mayhem and distraction so that they know where the police presence may be. Then they set fires, loot, and block traffic, all to cover the actual operations they want to run.
    This was demonstrated in all the major cities riots in that police calls were astronomical and impossible to respond to.
    Profiling by Trump supporters should weed most of them out of the crowd. Watch for unwashed or odd hair coloring or style, too many piercings, tattoos, jogger pants, backpacks, all black clothing, horrendous body odor, black socks when wearing shorts, clown shoes, eye makeup on men, and Karens.
    Every attendee should be asked a question that radical anarchist democrats would never be able to answer like: What political party was Abraham Lincoln a member of? or Why was the Democrat south fighting the civil war? or What political party was Robert Byrd, KKK grand Kleagle, a member of? or What political party had a higher percentage of support for 1960’s civil rights legislation?

    as curfews go…I’m on board with the hours selected…It’s legit. It is not broadly obnoxious.

    will people actually be doing anything after 10pm well after sundown to “rally”.? that’s hard to imagine….what would be the purpose of doing the late show?

    I think the broader view here, and let me state this as clear eyed as I can, is this:

    it’s very likely one of the many reasons is that we can almost guarantee that antifa types including the Black Lives bombast, are going to show up and violently disrupt this FIRST BIG TRUMP RALLY. They LOVE night ops…it’s their “thing”..it’s the precise window these very same arsonist and anarchists, looters, and vandals exploit…late hours.

    by putting a stop order in those late night hours, allows the local police to cleanup the idiots well before they can do serious harm and set the proper tone for a strong anti-riot element that is guaranteed to be salivating at this opportunity to corrupt a trump event and draw out a fight. You can bet the police in Tulsa are going to be there to enforce it and roll up anyone who dares to ignore the order….I agree with it.

    so, yes, it’s certainly got all the horrible optics of being overkill…but then I look at the last 2-3 weeks and I consider whatever the local police are allowed to do to protect businesses and citizens considering how much damage has already taken place by weak policy,…I’m going with this a great idea.

    Will it prevent those with fell intentions? Nope..the dummies will still do it, and get arrested…and should be. And the slightly less dummies will wait until 6am show up and create mayhem all day……with the second shift of police NOW WELL INFORMED with good intel, on the prior evenings events were scheduled and by whom, they can perform to focus on the agitators and take them out.

    The first thing I would be doing in regular patrols looking for those stacks of bricks and who places them…..out of state tags…and other transportation means ..hotels and motels that have group contracts from companies of dubious and known connections to antifa and Bowels Love Movement.

    I like it.

    Just a question Treepers: Do you really think it is completely outside the realm of possibility that the paid Antifa and BLM thugs would choose to descend on Tulsa looking for an opportunity for a violent standoff between their number and generally peaceful, but possibly legally armed, Trump supporters? You know whose side the media would be on and how the whole thing would be spun. Isn’t it just possible that the authorities in Tulsa may be trying to avoid turning their city into a huge riot over a political rally?

    While I am all for the rally and the rights of people to peaceably assemble, in light of recent events I also believe there is credibility to the threat of violence from outside agitators, especially if they have targets who camp out near the rally venue for days in advance.
