    Above,Gov. Whitmer holds a live press conference about WTF happened.

    Today the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that it discovered, monitored and upended a plot to kidnap the Governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer (Democrat)

    You can read the criminal complaint here: https://apps.npr.org/documents/document.html?id=7223362-Michigan-Kidnapping-Conspiracy

    The FBI has named and is charging "Adam FOX, Barry CROFT, Ty GARBIN, Kaleb FRANKS, Daniel HARRIS, and Brandon CASERTA with conspiring to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer." Croft is a resident of Deleware, the rest are from Michigan.

    Planning according to the charging document went on for months and Ohio was also used as a meeting point. The FBI looked to have finally ended the surveillance when the group planned, yesterday, "to make a payment on explosives and exchange tactical gear." The plan was to use about $4,000 worth of explosives to destroy a bridge that connected to the governors vacation home and escape by boat after kidnapping her, they also had separate access to self made IEDs.

    The group romanticized itself as protecting the Bill of Rights and planned to stage a mock trial of the governor for violating the constitution, with many in the group expressing a desire to kill her for treason against the United States.

    The FBI has been monitoring the group at least since March. What did the President of the United States know, and when did he know it?

    Little I'd imagine. He throws out such statements and hopes some **** will stick to keep his redneck base happy. Like the Proud Boys being told to stand by etc.

    I can't imagine a kidnapping/assassination plot against a governor was left out of the POTUS' daily security briefings. For 6 months.

    Whitmer is the type of female politician that makes the Trogs from the Manosphere convulse. There has been growing overlap between them and the “Patriot Movement.” So not surprised she was their first target.

    I honestly think republicanism attracts severe mental illness and paranoid delusions.

    Republicans actively court those people.

    Wonder if this will shine a light on some of the other groups out there ,

    Very little difference between a militia group and a terrorist group

    There's no difference, terrorists are probably quite a bit less cognitively impaired or dissonant though.

    What, all of 'em? Robert Mueller was a registered Republican and Trump still canned him. So was James Comey until Trump canned him too. Maybe they just weren't 'Republican' or sycophantic enough for him. He does love a sycophant.

    The FBI aren't trying to pin anything on Trump here, though. They've charged a militia group for planning to kidnap and execute the Governor of Michigan.

    Do you think they're making up these charges or what? :confused:

    Saying they're a militia is some fcukery of the highest order..

    Terror group, plain and simple. I'm pretty sure that this story meets the below standards?

    "FBI definition of terrorism: The unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a Government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives."


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 40,086 ✭✭✭✭ Harry Palmr


    Quite, I suspect a dialectic discussion with a proper political terrorist would be much more enlightening than one with your average militia grunt from Bent Elbow, Ohio.

    Or wherever!

    Just Antifa being the bad guys that they are wanting to cause a civil war in the US, Glad they got caught, those violent thugs and those who support them need to be behind bars.

    No, you need to update the original story :p These people are not right wing but left wing "Anti Police Anarchists"

    The Boogaloo are another right wing militia movement that has targeted police.

    Simply targeting the police is no clear indicator of political bias of the group. I don't see enough information in the charging document to conclude what their affiliation is, however it's worth nothing the Governor they were obsessed with killing for treason etc even across state lines was a Democrat and someone frequently excoriated by the Republican POTUS, with the signaling of the POTUS being that she was criminal and being unconstitutional

    Frankly for all we know these are libertarian extremists as well. But there's certainly no evidence here they are Antifa - and if they were, Trump would be roaring it from the back of Air Force One

    Which means spittle. The symbol has been around since the 1970s and fomented around punk rock.

    /Tried to capture and kill a democrat governer

    "Yeah but one of the dudes crazy enough to stock up guns armor and explosives has an A-flag"

    Stupendous.

    The USA is a broken and sick society. Not sure why this story is particularly worthy of a thread tbh. Fat men with anger issues buy guns. Sums up America to be honest.

    What did I tell you, something stinks over at the FBI. Probably influenced by Russia. They certainly have it in for the leader of the country that funds them.

    The guy openly is against Trump but he was a Trump supporter eh?

    Headline should read Trump regime police saves his political rivals life.

    It’s getting harder and harder to tell the obviously sarcastic posts from the people who think they’re being clever
