I’m not buying this.
Why arrest them? Congress is committing treason but the FBI is after these folks.
If the FBI is going to start enforcing the law against “seditious conspiracy”, when will they arrest Obama and members of his administration?
Can they be more specific? Or is there actually a crime called 'opposing by force the authority of the US government'?
All the muslim groups planning this same thing, using automatic weapons on their compounds, and they choose to go after Militia types first??
Sounds to me like they were arrested for thought crimes.
So, anybody who disagrees with the government is to be charged with sedition?
Something doesn’t smell right. The FBI is saying the group was targeting the police...yet CAIR comes out yesterday saying the group was targeting muslims. The investigation has been going on since 2008...yet suddenly it’s time to arrest these people?
However, if they were targeting the police and there is proof of such, they belong in jail. Isn’t it sad that we now have to be suspicious of our own FBI because Obama and Holder are muslim appeasers and sympathizers.
Fox had guy sighting Southern Poverty Law Center statistics as part of their reporting on this group.
It’s nice that they’ve finally come up with any specific charges whatsoever.
Some evidence would also be helpful.
If the FBI is going to raid places, they really ought to get their PR machine up to speed. Rather than have hours go by with the Internet aflame with legitimate questions about their actions, the FBI ought to release solid information about the charges involved up-front.
First rule of militia, don’t talk about militia.
If they act like Muslim terrorists, there is nothing Christian nor patriotic about this group.
charges of seditious conspiracy, attempted use of weapons of mass destruction, teaching the use of explosive materials and possessing a firearm during a crime of violence,
Seditious conspiracy: a crime of being a part of the other parts they mention.
Weapons of mass destruction: anything that can kill more than one or a few....such as an explosive
Teaching the use of explosive materials - This is extremely vague and could go from stump removal to who knows what. In other words, a meaningless charge without details. (Also explains the WMD charge above.)
Possessing a firearm during crime of violence: almost an obvious one.
Crime of Violence: this is the only thing that sounds like it could have meat on its bones, but it doesn’t say armed robbery, thuggery, etc. (So, if you illegally blow up a stump...is that a “crime of violence”? And if you carry a gun during that explosion.....???
Just like the OKC bombing allowed them to demonize conservatives and talk radio, this will be used by the media to attack anyone who is anti-Obamunist.
TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 115 > § 2384
§ 2384. Seditious conspiracy
If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
Nobody on this thread should lose his/her head here.
If such charges are true, surely they should have been stopped. My guess is the feds have infiltrated almost all such groups, going back before Obama was in office. Sure, the Dems want to play it up for political purposes, but we don’t want wackos blowing up the police or whatever. Let them have the Bill Ayerses.
When CAIR and SPLC are quoted in the same article, it’s BS.
