Talk about an October surprised. Good Lord!!!

An FBI-led investigation identified six men who were trying to plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

The investigation involved multiple confidential sources and undercover FBI personnel.

 

Based on court documents, the FBI was well aware of the activities of the men charged Thursday and there does not seem to have been an imminent threat posed to Gov. Whitmer, a Democrat.

The documents identify the defendants as Adam Fox, Barry Croft, Ty Garbin, Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris, and Brandon Caserta.

At a meeting in July, allegedly attended and recorded by one of the confidential sources, the men “discussed attacking a Michigan State Police facility, and in a separate conversation after the meeting, Garbin suggested shooting up the Governor’s vacation home," authorities allege.

Then at a July 27 meeting, Fox and an informant discussed a possible kidnapping of Whitmer, with the defendant allegedly saying: “Snatch and grab, man. Grab the f---ing governor. Just grab the b----. Because at that point, we do that, dude — it’s over.”

The federal investigation involved at least one member of a Michigan militia group who was involved in a Second Amendment rally at the Michigan statehouse in June.

That member allegedly told the FBI that the group was considering killing police officers and agreed to become an informant.

But the involvement of that militia in the plot to kidnap the governor appears to be minimal as the group that is charged today allegedly discussed keeping the broader militia out of their actual plan.

For months, Whitmer has drawn the ire of militia groups and others opposed to her efforts restrictions aimed curbing the spread of the coronavirus.

Armed protesters took to the streets of Lansing, Michigan, during the early days of Whitmer’s coronavirus lockdown orders. And President Donald Trump famously tweeted "LIBERATE MICHIGAN!" in April.

This is a developing story, please refresh for updates.

 

Oh America.

Another example of how anyone still supporting trump is a vile idiot, filled with either hatred or unbelievable lies.

Gifford, Whitmer... the right seems terrified of women.

Mike Pence was measured, polite, firm, truthful and on point.

Harris was obnoxious the whole time, evaded answering questions, her answers on the SC were terrible.

The mainstream media said the bird won it, which (translated) basically means Pence won it.

Was listening to an interview with Killer Mike while working. When it ended I went to play a new podcast and noticed it said Id been listening to an interview with Ice Cube. I had a moment of existential dread, thinking "Do all black guys names look the same to me??" Until I realized that when the Killer Mike interview ended, it autoplayed the last 2 minutes of the next unfinished pod in my library! :lol:

None of this is good for Trump. Why he thought backing out of the virtual debate next week is beyond me.

C’mon man, you know exactly why. :lol: Anything other than an in person debate means he actually has to engage and answer questions. Additionally he won’t be able to simply make a lot of noise and interrupt Biden.

Did I see your chap Trudeau going on about racism in the news the other day - more ''indigenous people racism'' than black racism, but still!!

That is like Bernard Manning teaching a diversity course.

The left replies were besotted with the fly.

And that is all I know as I didn't watch it. I'd rather stick knitting needles in my bollocks than watch another one of those.

How on earth am I supposed to know who a fat nightclub owner and comedian from 1970s England is? Having had a google, I still dont get the reference :lol:

I hope that our fuck boy and all of us will finally start to take seriously the issue of settler/anti indigenous racism. It obscene and wholly unchecked. So, I hope you heard the Prime Minstrel talking about it!

Nah, the left didnt run with the fly thing at all. Not in NA at least. With commentary on the Libs fascination with the fly ranging from "These are the same people who mocked Sanders populist play as being less intelligent. Now they brazenly display this level of slack-jawed tribalism." To "... The olds are learning to meme, who gives a fuck." :lol:

Is it possible that he is genetically 50% a Rolling Stone, and his minstrelsy was merely his inheritance from them to be black? This is after all all the Stones ever wanted to be - they just went about it in different ways, case in point,

Apparently when Jagger saw James Brown he was like a sponge, swiping all his moves.

And by 50% you mean a soup of 25% Keith and 25% Mick? Nah, actually some of your Canadian peers have a theory that Fidel Castro is the father! :lol:

On topic,

Trumps a pussy! And Black Lives Matter!

The Pence and Harris debate wasn't a train wreck like Biden and Trump.

but still when they were both asked a question they just had to get their opinion on other shit first. Lots of shaking of heads and eye rolls.

Did you guys see the fly on Mike Pence's head during the debate? I think the poor fly was stuck in his hair. lol

I was switching to other shows, so I missed when the fly was taken off. Oh well.

Anyway, Trump still wants in person debate and Biden wants virtual one. I don't blame Biden, Trump is probably still infected with the virus even though no one tells you either way. You don't get over this virus in less than a week. Guess we'll see what happens next time.

He is a lower than dog, and his supporters are all lower than that

It’s quite something to see a sitting President continue to hammer a state’s governor on the same day her potential abductors are arrested.

If there was ever a time to employ the 25th Amendment, now would be it.
