FBI Thwarts Anarchist Trash Planning to Blow-Up Cleveland-area Bridge
Reaganite Republican ^ | May 1, 2012 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 05/01/2012 9:05:32 AM PDT by Reaganite Republican


While visiting my family in Cleveland in 2008, the wife and I went hiking and birding in the scenic and historic Cuyahoga Valley National Park, where we did indeed spot some huge buzzard nests and even one full of Eagle hatchlings. What looks like a river in the photo above is actually the remnants of the
Ohio & Erie Canal, and the trail we took was once the canal's towpath- the classic bridge above spanned the gap above the valley...

Yet for some reason this same Ohio Route 82 bridge was recently selected as a target by five violent #occupy-type anarchists who have been planning and buying explosives in order to demolish the bridge in a supreme show of May Day #occupy one-upmanship. The seedy Cleveland-area losers involved -who look like junkies and/or devil worshipers- were fortunately arrested last night by the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force after brilliantly buying the explosives from an undercover agent.


So as the Obama Administration obsesses on controlling threats to their own power, -both real and imagined- this foiled stunt stands as a poignant reminder that there's plenty to worry about coming from the radical Left in this country... I just hope somebody in the FBI is paying them enough attention.

The Obama-endorsed #occupy movement is sure to spawn more radical kooks looking to makes some sort of impression in the wake of their futile, unfocused protest movement... after throwing condoms at schoolkids, pooping on police cars, and raping fellow protesters... why would anybody be surprised now that they'd like to start blowing things up?

My guess is that is an FBI-inspired threat. Where do you think the idea to use C4 came from?

The RNC and Conservative press need to find a way to tie these gutterscum morons around Obama’s neck much like the 68 protesters were tied around Humphrey and Willie Horton was tied around Dukakis.

Looking at the photos of these clowns, even if we had a 1% unemployment rate these guys would be unemployed. Perhaps they are the 1%, that is, the 1% of this nation that are unemployable under all circumstances.

They needed some engineering skills to know where to place the explosives to bring down.

Bringing a structure down requires more then just randomly placing explosives.

Don't you just love how these Libs keep getting suckered?

Do you s'pose any of these students actually knows how hard it is to drop a bridge? Particularly with some agent provocateur "helping' with white Play-Doh as a stand-in for C-4

You don't suppose our friendly FBI guy was the one who suggested they switch from smoke bombs and printed flyers to blowing up bridges?

(The recipe for home made plastique is REALLY simple, but WAY beyond the skills of a MA or PHD in Poli Sci.)

Where do you think the idea to use C4 came from?...Anybody who watches NCIS would know about it. How to use it would have been different, however.

EXACTLY... but we’re going to have to beat the drum, the RNC is too cowardly to speak the truth about anything

Typical OWS geniuses. The escape plan was the best:

WRIGHT said that they just need to bring down the BrecksvillegNorthfield High Level Bridge - and that as long as stuff "gets f--ked up" he'll be happy with the action. 81 .`On April 20, 2012, the CHS drove WRIGHT and C.S. to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park directly below the High Level Bridge to do surveillance...

Upon arriving at the location, WRIGHT observed that the Brecksville-Northfield High Level Bridge is a two lane bridge and opined that eight blocks of C-4 will take out a good chunk of it or it will at least drop out a whole section of the bridge. The CHS said. they should walk down along the side of the train tracks running tmdemeath the bridge4; however WRIGHT wanted to go in the middle, away from the railroad tracks and people. He also stated that if the bridge loses one of the arches the whole thing will probably come down...

Finally, the group discussed what would happen if they were caught. Baxter thought that they will all go to Guantanamo Bay if they get caught, they will not go to a normal prison. To prevent capture, he suggested getting tacks that they could throw out of the back of the car if they get caught in a chase.

I AM A LIFETIME BROWNS FAN, sir... watch it

Frankly, I hate them ever since Bernie Kosar left... oh, the misery!

But let’s see YOU try it... it ain’t easy!

BTW, I met Jim Brown and he bought us drinks once... THOSE Browns were no losers!

ACME tacks are best if that's the way you want to go but the Rocket and roller skate combo is most effective unless the tunnel entrance is just painted on the side of a mountain.

after brilliantly buying the explosives from an undercover agent.

The pattern here is laughable.

The FBI always seems to be involved, close by or just around the corner from these concocted schemes, which generally turns out to involve glue sniffing morons in places like Roadkillville Arkansas.

Maybe if there was a dam upstream of the bridge. Then it's much easier.

Not so good on a canal tho.

Hey, they can’t do that! I’ve been planning to sell that thing!

Nevertheless, this clearly points up the need for checkpoints at all highway bridges where motorists can prove they do not have explosives.

ACME makes a 2000 lb anvil that is VERY effective for dropping from great heights onto chasers.

Oh yeah? What about tying a gigantic bottle rocket to one’s back and then being shot out of a gigantic slingshot after lighting the fuse? What about that?

These guys would never have made the leap from fuses to timers. Darwin has been cheated.
