1. Whenever they state "the Base", they should note that in Arabic it literally means "Al Qaeda". nt

2. Looks as if the FBI has infiltrated a number of the Michigan militias.

I expect there will be more arrests coming.

5. Yep. This is very good news.

Wonder if The Base is linked to the truck in Philly.

Next up: The Oath Keepers?

Hopefully they have more informants that don’t get exposed.

25. They hide in the desolate areas of the thumb.

That's where the Nichols brothers and Tim McVeigh hatched their plot to blow up the Murrah bldg.

14. That's a great thought! With her life of luxury, she might have a rough time adapting to

prison life. But who knows, students might delight in having her as their pen pal!...

6. I'm wondering if there are/will be simultaneous arrests of other Base

members because that group is made up of individual cells, and it seems to me like arresting the leader might send some of the cells into activation. Also, the individual cells are kept separate and aren't supposed to communicate with each other, so this could be quite a surprise and it's hard to tell what the results of this arrest might be.

Just a though.

PS: Applegrove it's so good to see you. Haven't seen you in awhile.

28. I've been buying veggies since i got back to politics. I so enjoy roasting

them. My favourite right now are green beans roasted with garlic and parmesan. I'm just much happier and find meaning in connecting through ideas. Kudos to those who do hosting well.

Or is Barr just going to order the charges dismissed?

30. Good, first Michigan and then every state after that.

Violent, armed, anti government groups are allowed to threaten ordinary citizens, members of government and journalist is lawlessness and they get away with it because, free speech and 2nd amendment.

However police kill black citizens for at most misdemeanor crimes, or a little boy walking in a park with a play gun.

31. everyone here knows

that Al Qaeda translated is "the Base" right?

(Also that AntiFa stands for Anti-Fascist, which i think people keep forgetting)

The world's turned upside down...
