This the the follow up to Obama going after the Hutaree Militia in Michigan. Its an understatement to say its a major embarrassment to the Obama Regime.

Most amazing is the fact that this judge is a black female Clinton appointee. She was never happy with this case.

Good. Sounded like a set up from the beginning. Sedition? What a joke!

What ever happened to that kid in NC? He showed up at the airport with a police scanner and a gun when the 0ne was flying out.

If they want to find sedition they are looking in the wrong place. The mother lodes are in the White House, Media Matters, Southern Poverty Law Center, the ACLU and most university faculty lounges.

It seems that the fact the accused talked about what would serve their objectives but never actually made any plans should have given the DOJ a clue. At the same time, the fact the NBPP puts out a bounty on Zimmerman apparently doesn’t interest the DOJ.

“If they want to find sedition they are looking in the wrong place.”

Agreed. This was just a shot across the bow by the 0bummer disciples, anyway. Didn’t do them much good. I’m as p!ssed off and ready now as I was then.

The Judge’s original release order from last year can be found here. She slammed the feds hard.

Thanks, reading your link makes it clear this was an ideological exercise on Holder’s part. I don’t agree with the milita by any means but they have Constitutional rights, at least until November. Got to give Obama some space until after the election.

He’s not my kind of people but he’s no threat. He lives at the dead end of a road in the swamp and doesn’t bother anyone.

Of course it doesn’t - remember the voter intimidation by the NBPP at the polls and nothing was done about it? (Racist) Eric Holder and his DOJ have said they will not pursue any cases where the perps are black.

Yes, that’s their policy.

Taking the country back isn’t sedition, it’s kicking the impostors out. If anyone is leaving it’s going to be them. I’m not leaving.

Though there has been, literally, quite a bit of plotting by the government against the citizenry.

Unfortunately Michigan’s primaries were last month - too late for them to be able to vote for Ron Paul.
