An unnamed source from Turning Point USA claims to have fired an anonymous aide responsible for creating an altered seal showing an eagle similar to the Russian national emblem and holding a set of golf clubs, likely made to make President Donald Trump look bad as he spoke before cameras and a large audience, claiming there was “zero malicious intent.”
Earlier today, President Trump was caught speaking before a presidential seal that was altered to have a double headed eagle holding golf clubs, in what many would assume is a nod to the left’s fabled Russian hacking and their sudden distaste of a president who enjoys playing golf, even after they ignored President Barack Obama’s love of the sport.
The altered seal was present at a Turning Point USA event, and President Trump likely had no clue what was behind the podium he was speaking at.
Now, The Hill and CNN report that Turning Point USA claims the aide who supplied the fake seal has been fired, but maintain that there were no nefarious intentions at play behind the former aide’s actions.
An employee for the conservative group Turning Point USA has reportedly been fired following an incident in which President Trump appeared in front of an altered presidential seal at an event hosted by the organization.
An unnamed Turning Point USA source told CNN that an audiovisual aide responsible for the seal has been dismissed. The source emphasized to the news network that there was “zero malicious intent” behind the image.“We’re sorry for the mix-up and meant no disrespect to the White House or the president or the advance team,” the TPUSA source told CNN.
According to The Hill, “A banner also read “45 es un titere,” Spanish for “45 is a puppet,” which was apparently “interpreted as a jab at the president for his relationship with Moscow and his love of golf.”
Turning Point USA, one of the best funded young conservative groups, staunchly maintains that the incident was purely an accident. There is no explanation, however, for why they would fire an employee for an honest mistake.
“One of our video team members did a Google Image search for a high-res png (file) presidential seal,” a source familiar with the incident said according to The Hill.
While Turning Point USA enjoys a comfortable relationship with the White House, they have previously been accused of stifling their activists.
Big League Politics spoke to former Turning Point USA representative and current Infowars personality Kaitlin Bennett last year:
Big League Politics spoke to student activist Kaitlin Bennett of Kent State University, who resigned her post as chapter president for the conservative organization Turning Point USA.
Bennett, a self-described “right-leaning libertarian,” clashed with the national organization over foreign policy issues, and did not feel like she had free reign to be creative with her headline-grabbing activism.
Do conservative student organizations — however well-intentioned — stifle viewpoints that deviate from the Republican party line at the expense of recruiting new members who might not be lever-pulling Republicans?

Second Christian Pastor Charged for Holding Church Services During Coronavirus Lockdown
Christian gatherings are being criminalized.
Another Christian pastor is being charged with crimes for holding church services during the coronavirus lockdown.
Mark Anthony Spell, a Central, La. pastor, is receiving six misdemeanor charges for disobeying Gov. John Bel Edwards’ emergency shutdown edicts after he held church services this past weekend.
“Over the last two weeks I have worked with the sheriff, state police, the state fire marshal, Reverend Tony Perkins, and others to address this matter outside of legal action. Mr. Spell made his intentions to continue to violate the law clear. Instead of showing the strength and resilience of our community during this difficult time, Mr. Spell has chosen to embarrass us for his own self-promotion,” said Central Police Chief Roger Corcoran, who issued the misdemeanor summons to Spell.
“Mr. Spell will have his day in court where he will be held responsible for his reckless and irresponsible decisions that endangered the health of his congregation and our community. This is not an issue over religious liberty, and it’s not about politics. We are facing a public health crisis and expect our community’s leaders to set a positive example and follow the law,” he added.
Spell has allegedly convened six unlawful church services at his Life Tabernacle Church hosting more individuals at his worship proceedings than what is allowed by the state. East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore said Spell is receiving a misdemeanor count for every time he allegedly violated the edict. They will not charge everyone who gathered unlawfully at the church but will attempt to make an example of Spell because “encouraged others to violate” the law.
“Without his actions, the others would not come,” Moore said. “Practically, it would be very difficult to charge that number of people even if we were not in the crisis we are in.”
Spell sees his case as being paramount for nationwide fight on behalf of religious liberty against tyrannical government.
“This is a scary time for our nation. Our religious freedoms are under persecution and attack,” Spell said. “This is an attack on all Christians across the world.”
“If this is not about religion, then are the Waltons not being issued summons and arrested for keeping Walmart open?” Spell asked. “Nobody will tell us as God fearing Christians and Americans that we are non-essential in our society.”
He vows to continue holding church services publicly in Louisiana no matter what the consequences from the state turn out to be.
“When you close every door in this city, we’ll close this door and we’ll go underground, but we are going to assemble and congregate as God fearing Christians,” Spell said. “If they are to arrest me and take me out of this congregation, my assistant pastor will step in immediately, when he is arrested, the third man will step in.”
Big League Politics reported yesterday on the other pastor who has been charged with holding illegal church services under new coronavirus edicts:
A Pro-Trump pastor has been arrested for hosting churches services in Florida. This appears to be the first case of this kind under the Chinese Coronavirus pandemic.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office obtained an arrest warrant for Rev. Rodney Howard-Browne the pastor of The River Church, a mega church in Tampa, Florida for hosting two worship services at his church this past Sunday.
State Attorney Andrew Warren remarked, “I think it’s unfortunate that the pastor here is hiding behind the First Amendment. One, it’s absolutely clear that emergency orders like this are constitutional and valid. Second of all, leaders from our faith-based community across this country have embraced the importance of social distancing.”
“Because of the reckless disregard of public safety and after repeated requests and warnings, I worked with our state attorney, Andrew Warren, to obtain a warrant for unlawful assembly and violation of public health emergency rules, both of which are second degree misdemeanors,” Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said. “Our goal here is not to stop anyone from worshiping, but the safety and well-being of our community must always come first.”
Freedom of religion could soon be a lost vestige of the past because of the mass hysteria that has resulted from the coronavirus pandemic.
