Thrice convicted extorionist linked to Idaho Citadel project

If you’re a band of antigovernment “Patriots” pitching a plan to build a walled city in North Idaho and manufacture handguns and assault rifles there, you might expect raised eyebrows, a little criticism. But potshots from other Patriots?

Potshots, indeed, are flying at III Arms Co. and its sister land development company, Citadel Land Development, the firms behind a proposed 2,000- to 3,000-acre III Citadel complex for as many as 7,000 “Patriot” families near St. Maries, in Idaho’s sparsely populated Benewah County.

The criticism is sparked by the fact that one of the key players linked to the unlikely-sounding venture is three-time convicted felon Christian Allen Kerodin, a Maryland contractor who has apparently used various aliases and whose birth name was Christian Hyman. His wife or partner, Holly Ann Kerodin, has been involved in questionable charity, counseling, publishing and other ventures that have failed, various critics say.

In the past few days, attacks on the much-ballyhooed Citadel fortress and its planned gun-building plant have come from Alabama Patriot leader and blogger Michael Brian Vanderboegh and survivalist author and so-called “sovereign citizen” James Wesley, Rawles. Rawles (who, like many sovereigns, punctuates his name in a bizarre way) generally is credited with coming up with the idea of building a fortified community in the Pacific Northwest — what he has called the “American Redoubt” — for Christian Patriots.

4. I would bet my bottom dollar that they're white supremacists.

Nazi racists. All of them, I would imagine.

Nice work, boys!

5. Put them all in their walled compound with their arms factory, lock the door, throw away the key,

and then sit back and watch the fireworks.

I want a front row seat. Who's with me??

6. In other news: Pres. Obama announces operation "extremist militants are stupid enough to believe

anything" was a success. Has dropped request for additional ATF. Prior to his second election Pres. Obama met with the psyops division of the ATF with the goal of using extreme militants own ignorance against them. The President was heard to say, "I'm not kidding, they're that dumb. Send out a letter telling them Idaho will make it legal to hurt people who aren't white/male/straight/christian/pro-life/NRA and they'll rally at a meeting point." We'll round them up in one fell swoop. Despite skepticism from psyops staff, they released info on websites that had the words, Patriot, 2nd amendment, christian and liberty in the titles. Response was overwhelming. It is reported than caches are being dug up across the country in anticipation of the move.

When asked to comment, the White House refused, citing the President was busy writing an executive order. Asking for just onnee little drone.
