Big day yesterday, thanks to the Feds and the Hutaree



Over thirteen thousand hits and the sitemeter hasn't finished counting in the 23rd hour. (Don't know why it is so dilatory. Something about being located in California, I think.)

And based on the comments, most of these visitors were NOT foam-at-the-mouth collectivists trying to get an insult or a death threat in edgewise over their outrage at the Window War, but members of the armed citizenry trying to figure out what was going on in the Midwest.

For those of you new to Sipsey Street, welcome!

The #'s are good news. I contributed to that number. I do think it was lowdown and dirty for the feds to make arrests during a funeral.

I think it is lowdown and dirty for any Fed anywhere to get off their lazy backside and do anything. Aren't they supposed to be government employees or something?

What's wrong with just sucking us dry like the rest of the governmentally employed?

Leave it to a government employee to raid a funeral or wake. They just wanted some of the Swedish meatballs and sour cream dip.

I guess we can expect to see these numbers after every event?

CNN about the raid

"Hutaree members view local, state and federal law enforcement authorities as the enemy and have been preparing to engage them in armed conflict.

The indictment alleges the Hutaree group planned to kill an unidentified law enforcement officer in Michigan and then attack officers who would gather for the funeral."

"Hutaree leader David Brian Stone obtained information about IEDs over the Internet and e-mailed diagrams to a person he believed could manufacture them."

Hmm... spunds like BS idictment to me.

I visit daily and have for quite some time. Keep up the good work and good job with all the hits.

I truly hope nothing like what happened yesterday happens to anyone else. Taking down the militias (threats) is one of the first steps before they swoop in with full-bleed martial law, if that was to ever happen.

I'm curiously awaiting what will happen and be said when they go before a judge.

Waco and Ruby Ridge cost the authorities any sliver of trust I may have had in them. My default position now is that they are lying.
