The devil prowls abroad in the land, seeking whom he may devour.

"How federal agents foiled a murderous Jade Helm 15 retaliation plot." Riiight. I feel so much safer. We'll have to wait to see how the court record squares with the truth of this.

maybe I missed it somewhere over the past few days of all the hand-wringing over this, but has anyone anywhere reported the store (and owner) who turned informant? I mean, he's in the business of selling this type of hardware and then turns into Chuckie Schumer when someone buys it. Of course common sense dictates that when someone is planning these types of festivities their pie hole should remain shut and in-store conversation relegated to the weather. Nevertheless, in a business like this, one should know damn well the type of customer they'll be catering to. And good business sense would dictate a Sgt. Schultz "I see nothing" attitude. So I'm thinking that HIS picture should be posted right along side the alleged "plotters" along with HIS house and place of business. That way, if he is in business just to be an informant, anyone planning a party will avoid his store like it contained Legionnaire's Disease. And if he was just acting like a "concerned citizen" then the decline in business to starvation level should be a warning that whispering into the ear of your local Gestapo agent gets you nothing but a ticket to Palukaville. Whatever his reason for turning rat bastard he should be taught what kids where I'm from are taught at an early age, and that is - Everyone hates a snitch...

Remember the Hutarees?
I'd never even heard of them, but felt like the lone voice in the wilderness when everybody else seemed to be assuming the FBI accusations were true.

And when the allegations proved to be too BS laden for even our federal court system to swallow, all you heard were...crickets...

It's possible, though unlikely, that the story is disinformation by the government to stir up sentiment against those who would dare resist "shelter in place" as well as to marginalize those who prepare for such scenarios, isolating them from the rest of society as outcasts....for all sorts of reasons, from containing the spread of the ideology to actually fostering this isolation in an attempt to get the weaker minded to react creating almost a "false flag"....or in such a case as this....getting a crisis event upon which they can hopefully capitalize.

If you look at the facts so far, they have NFA and gun law violations....which shouldn't be illegal in the first place and are more than a little ironic in a country which has a 2A that states, "shall not be infringed". They have trumped up "conspiracy" charges that had a very clear predication that if X happens, they would respond with Y. X was a declaration of martial law. Since that never happened, would any thing other than stockpiling of weapons have happened? We don't know. Conditional threats fall into a different class than ones that overtly admit guilt.

As for the felon purchasing a gun....again, if they can't be trusted with a firearm, then why are they out of prison at all? Once you're out of prison, your rights should either be restored, or you shouldn't be out in the first place.

Many will say these men are wannabe Rambos....but hardly dangerous threats to anyone, provided the government didn't get froggy about oppressing its people.....and last I checked, it was still legal for people to want to pretend to be badasses. If it weren't, the internet would get shut down tomorrow, LOL. Further, who decides what is a "goofball" website? While I don't personally put much stock in Alex Jones (as one example)....he's been right about enough things that he carries credibility with some. The point is, we'd be better off remaining at least partially open to our fellow countryman's fears of oppression from our own government as a definite possibility, considering its current and past examples of exactly that, than to "shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts."

Perhaps these 3 Rambos are the "rebels" Jefferson referred to: “I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical. Unsuccessful rebellions, indeed, generally establish the encroachments on the rights of the people, which have produced them. An observation of this truth should render honest republican governors so mild in their punishment of rebellions, as not to discourage them too much. It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government.”

Or, the lead up to his more famous quote on this very topic:

"The people cannot be all, & always well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. .........what country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two?"

Is it just me or does the picture of the suspects resemble two gullible morons on the ends and a fibbie "ASSet" in the middle? hm.
