Feds say they thwarted militia plot to kidnap Whitmer

Robert Snell

The Detroit News

<date is today. cannot be copied and pasted>

Excerpt:

The FBI says it thwarted what it described as a plot to violently overthrow the government and kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, and federal prosecutors are expected to discuss the alleged conspiracy later Thursday.

The alleged plot involved reaching out to members of a Michigan militia, according to a federal affidavit filed Thursday.

"Several members talked about murdering 'tyrants' or 'taking' a sitting governor," an FBI agent wrote in the affidavit. "The group decided they needed to increase their numbers and encouraged each other to talk to their neighbors and spread their message."

The affidavit was filed hours after a team of FBI agents raided a Hartland Township home Wednesday and comes amid an ongoing investigation into the death of a Metro Detroit man killed during a shootout with FBI agents.

The conspiracy described by the FBI involved at least six people, including Ty Garbin, 24, whose home was raided by agents in Hartland Township late Wednesday.

The affidavit filed in federal court details probable cause to charge the six men with conspiring to kidnap Whitmer. Those identified by name include:

Adam Fox

Barry Croft

Garbin

Kaleb Franks

Daniel Harris

Brandon Caserta

Ages and hometowns for all six men were not immediately available.

The investigation dates to early 2020 when the FBI learned through social media that individuals were discussing the violent overthrow of several state governments and law enforcement.

Too bad they did not succeed, she needs to be treated like the terrorist that she is. The Elderly would breath a sign of relief if they did not have to worry about Gretchen "The executioner" Whitmer in the near future.

It's not like the FBI would make things up to suit the deep state's narrative? 

Would they? :rolleyes:

Yep! Six Sheet kickers gonna "Violently overthrow the Government"...and what has been Actually happening in Portland,NYC,Milwaukee,Madison, Seattle,..and so on?...And these boyz was just getting their lives together too, what a shame!..Why shoot I betcha they was gonna get some new shoes outta the deal..Just goes to show... you best watch what you say (unless you're shrieking "Kill Trump") No folks the process for reigning in Gov Ratched is working via the Mi Supreme Court and now her A/G says she won't enforce Gretchen's schtick and Now Gov Ratched has involved bureaucrats to enforce her will..and thereby limiting "Qualified Immunity" for said Bureaucrats in Civil cases. (USC 18, 242 is just one statute regarding removal/denial of Constitutional Rights "under Color of Law") I'm sure the Michigan based Mackinaw Center is on this too..But anyway I'll be curious to see how far the FBI takes this..I'm sure these keyboard Warriors are a clear and present danger to the State...Time will tell! Thanks for Posting L/B!

I echo your sentiments but I think it's important to allow the "Process" to work, cuz it is working here in Mi, Many People have woke to the fact of what the Government is capable of doing to it's populace. Many Sheriff's refuse to enforce what they believe to be illegal/Immoral rules..Just read US Code Title 18 Sec 242 "under color of law"...jail time and fines..and that doesn't even count civil stuff not too mention the political angle...NOPE! Process first..What did the old timers say?  "Ballot Box..Jury Box..Cartridge Box"..I live here in Mi and I think its gonna be just fine!

It seems odd that they call it a militia plot in the headline, but then they say that part of the plot was to reach out to members of a militia.

No, they arresting subversive crazies again.   

No less than twenty recall petitions have been filed against Governor Whitmer just this year.  Any petition would need a million signatures to get on the ballot.  So far, none have gained the required million, which means that the political will to recall her from office has so far failed to appear.  If you cannot get enough voters to sign onto a recall petition, you obviously do not have enough support for an armed rebellion.  But, if you tell the subversive crazies that, they will simply assume you are working for the imaginary dictatorship.

The true believers in opposition look like a sizable number, because they are the loudest, but just like with the attempts to remove Gov. Walker, there really isn't the political will to completely upend everything.

Wait your turn and vote them out.

That goes for all crazies.  Be it "militias" (Jesus, these guys read too many comic books.) or peaceful rioters who burn cities, disrupt diners and assault others because they refuse to buckle to the mob.  (Jesus, these guys read too many articles in the New York Times.)

Ok...if you say so..but what do you think the almost 600k signatures (only needed 340K) to curtail her "Emergency Powers" to things she has to work out with the Legislature..I have never seen a "re-call Whitmer petition"..but I did see the other one almost immediately and signed it:):):)..That one went thru pretty quick...Time will tell.

Gretchen Whitmer's Approval Rating Rises During Pandemic

WWJ News

September 10, 2020 - 8:43 am

(WWJ) A day after former Vice President Joe Biden praised Michigan Gov Gretchen Whitmer's performance during the coronavirus, her latest poll numbers were revealed.

And they're up amid all the dark and dismal news of the pandemic.

Listen Live Now on WWJ Newsradio 950

WWJ's Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick reported that Whitmer has a 61% approval rating and a 38% disapproval rating. The Detroit News/WDIV poll found the first-term Democratic governor's approval rating has risen more than 15 points since January. In January, only 43% approved of Whitmer's job while 36% disapproved.

Her approval numbers are important as Biden seeks swing votes in Michigan and allys himself with Whitmer while both criticize President Donald Trump.

Yep!..or go after them with the tools we have, legally..only your basic Keyboard Warrior thinks a Civil War Pt2 would be a good idea...Maybe these guys are the flip side of Antifa/BLM..Wouldn't it be a hoot if these guys were doing your basic BLM Grift (with a 4X4 option:):):)..Hey L/B? did these guys have a website that takes donations?

Know if they  just took over part of a city, burned a bunch of buildings down, and beat the hell out of innocent by standers in the name of Racial Justice and equality, then it would be all good.

     Usually but not always, it's a big reason why they aren't usually successful.  To busy working to do much of anything more than talk, plan, but not much time to practice or rehearse.  By the time they go into final phases they are busted.  Not agreeing with them by any means, just stating how it usually goes.
