Seriously????? WTF??? We're trying to kidnap governors now???

We're about one month away from becoming a third world nation.

Quote:
A team of militia operatives is charged with conspiring to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in a plot in which they considered storming the state Capitol in a commando raid that would use Molotov cocktails to keep police cars at bay, according to newly unsealed court records.


Quote:
Members of the group bought weapons, conducted surveillance and held training and planning meetings, but they were foiled in part because the FBI infiltrated the group with informants, according to a criminal complaint. Six were charged with federal kidnapping offenses and at least seven others face state charges.

That seems like a weird way to spell 'terrorists.'

This is why you shouldn't worry so much about public condemnations. If the feds really think a group is dangerous, the last thing they'll do is make a public announcement about it.

All men involved were coerced by the FBI into this plot. With all the attention being focused on the police on this board, one would think there would be more emphasis on the widescale corruption and lawlessness happening at the TOP level of law enforcement.

This is bullshit. The article says nothing about coercion. They were infiltrated and egged on, but that's not being coerced.

Absolutely correct. And who was at the VERY TOP of American Law Enforcement at that time? Only one guess, now. [Hint: he's the Oxford Dictionary's illustration for the definition of "corruption".]

The mistake that the inevitably gullible public makes when criminal or civil lawsuits are filed is to believe the accusations made in the initial complaints filed by the prosecutors or plaintiffs lawyers and reported by the media.

These initial complaint filings are commonly filled with wild assertions, aggressively inculpatory "beliefs" that are hoped to be proved as facts at trial, and even fantasies and outright lies. Prosecutors are not liable under defamation laws for the stuff they put in initial complaints, and the content of these complaints is all the clickbait press typically reports before going silent on the actual facts introduced at trial, which happens many months or years later. Except, perhaps, for a small handful of nationally famous trials that get daily reporting.

It's a little bit out of character for me to take the bait from you, but I will say this... After all of the very public, high profile investigations that President Trump has been dragged through during his entire time in office (and still today), you would have thought that SOMETHING criminal would surface by now. And still no evidence of wrongdoing persists. I'm starting to think that maybe he was the most "squeaky clean" guy they had in that town.
