At this point the GOP should just rename their party QAnon.

The dangerous Qanon cult tearing families apart with conspiracies | 60 Minutes Australia

This story presented a serious dilemma for Sarah Abo because for the most part it is pure fantasy, and 60 MINUTES reporters prefer to deal in facts. But pure fantasy is how to best sum up QAnon, an ever-shifting mega-conspiracy theory that’s bizarre and nonsensical. As whacky as it is though, millions of people appear to be caught up in the internet-based cult, including more and more Australians. The dangerous real-world consequences of QAnon, where families are being torn apart, now demand that the rest of us stop scratching our heads in disbelief and start to take much more notice of this strange group.

The jury found that the FBI concocted the fake plot to kidnap Whitmer.  They found a few numbskulls who didn't like her and set up a "plot" to kidnap her.  These guys were just pawns in the FBI's desperate effort to make a political arrest that harmed Trump.  As a result, the jury did not convict any of the defendants.  To suggest otherwise is the disinformation.  The facts speak for themselves and can be easily verified by anyone who does a one second Google search.  That doesn't fit the desired narrative, however.  So keep peddling a falsheood.  In addition, there are not ten people in the entire world who believed JFK was coming back from the dead.  Not even mentally ill people.  That is a fake story given social media attention to make Trump supporters look like loons.


 "A federal jury failed to convict four men accused of plotting to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer."

There was no "fake FBI plot". That was nothing but right wing propaganda.

I correctly stated that the Feds were bringing a new trial and these 2 right wing radicals were convicted by a jury yesterday and will rot in prison for the rest of their lives.

Once again I am 100% correct.   

 
2 men convicted in plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Whitmer


 
Gretchen Whitmer in 2020, delivering swift verdicts in a plot that was broken up by the FBI and described as a rallying cry for a U.S. civil war by anti-government extremists.

The result was a big victory for the U.S. Justice Department. A different jury just four months ago couldn’t reach unanimous decisions on Adam Fox or Barry Croft Jr. but acquitted two other men, a stunning conclusion that led to a second trial.

Their arrests nearly two years ago came at an extremely tense time: the volatile homestretch of the election between Joe Biden and then-President Donald Trump playing out against a backdrop of armed protests over COVID-19 restrictions, especially in Michigan.

Jury selection in the retrial of Fox and Croft coincidentally occurred a day after FBI agents searched Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate for documents, putting the agency in headlines at the same time that the judge was trying to detect any biases about law enforcement in the jury pool.

Fox and Croft were convicted Tuesday of two counts of conspiracy related to the kidnapping scheme and attempts to use a weapon of mass destruction. Prosecutors said they wanted to blow up a bridge to disrupt police if the abduction could be pulled off at Whitmer’s vacation home.

Croft, 46, a trucker from Bear, Delaware, was also convicted of another explosives charge. The jury deliberated for roughly eight hours over two days.

“Today’s verdicts prove that violence and threats have no place in our politics and those who seek to divide us will be held accountable. They will not succeed,” said Whitmer, a Democrat, who turned 51 years old on Tuesday.

“But we must also take a hard look at the status of our politics,” she added. “Plots against public officials and threats to the FBI are a disturbing extension of radicalized domestic terrorism that festers in our nation, threatening the very foundation of our republic.”

Law enforcement officials across the country have been warning about an increase in threats and the potential for violence against agents or buildings.

Fox and Croft, who face sentences of up to life in prison, just stared at the jury as the verdicts were read. Defense attorney Christopher Gibbons shook his head while another defense lawyer, Joshua Blanchard, removed his glasses.

Jurors declined to speak to reporters.

“It’s been a good fight. We were hoping for a different outcome,” Gibbons said.

During closing arguments Monday, a prosecutor had a blunt message: No one can strap on an AR-15 rifle and body armor and snatch a governor.

“But that wasn’t the defendants’ ultimate goal,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Nils Kessler said. “They wanted to set off a second American civil war, a second American Revolution, something that they call the boogaloo. And they wanted to do it for a long time before they settled on Gov. Whitmer.”

The investigation began when Army veteran Dan Chappel joined a Michigan paramilitary group and became alarmed when he heard talk about killing police. He agreed to become an FBI informant and spent the summer of 2020 getting close to Fox and others, secretly recording conversations and participating in drills at “shoot houses” in Wisconsin and Michigan.

The FBI turned it into a major domestic terrorism case with two more informants and two undercover agents embedded in the group. Evidence showed the group had many gripes, particularly over stay-at-home orders and other pandemic restrictions imposed by Whitmer.

Fox, Croft and others, accompanied by the government operatives, traveled to northern Michigan to see Whitmer’s vacation home at night and a bridge that could be destroyed. Ty Garbin and Kaleb Franks, too, were on that ride. They pleaded guilty and testified for the prosecution.

Whitmer was not physically harmed; six men were arrested hours away from her home in October 2020.

David Porter, who leads the FBI in western Michigan, hailed the verdicts.

“Here in America, if you disagree with your government you have options. ... What you cannot do is plan or commit acts of violence,” he said outside the courthouse.

Defense attorneys tried to put the FBI on trial, repeatedly emphasizing through cross-examination of witnesses and during closing remarks that federal players were present at every crucial event and had entrapped the men.

Fox and Croft, they said, were “big talkers” who liked to smoke marijuana and were guilty of nothing but exercising their right to say vile things about Whitmer and government.

“This isn’t Russia. This isn’t how our country works,” Blanchard, Croft’s attorney, told jurors. “You don’t get to suspect that someone might commit a crime because you don’t like things that they say, that you don’t like their ideologies.”

Gibbons said the FBI isn’t supposed to create “domestic terrorists.” He described Fox, 39, as poor and living in the basement of a Grand Rapids-area vacuum shop, which was a site for meetings with Chappel and an agent.

Hours after the verdicts, U.S. District Judge Robert Jonker unsealed his Aug. 14 findings about a juror. Blanchard had disclosed early in the trial that his office took a call from someone who said the juror was eager to get picked and would vote to convict.

“The juror repeatedly and consistently denied making any such statements,” said Jonker, who, with staff, spoke to the person in private. “Based on the court’s observation of the juror’s demeanor and behavior, these responses were credible.”

In separate but related cases, eight other men linked to the kidnapping scheme are being prosecuted by the Michigan attorney general in state courts.

Whitmer in 2020 blamed Trump for stoking mistrust and fomenting anger over coronavirus restrictions and refusing to condemn hate groups and right-wing extremists like those charged in Michigan.

On Aug. 6, three days before jury selection, Trump told conservative activists that the kidnapping plan was a “fake deal.”

BIGOTED, TRUMP-APPROVED CANDIDATE LAURA LOOMER SHOWS WHERE THE GOP IS HEADED

The president celebrated the outspoken Islamophobe’s Republican primary win in Florida, along with a “future Republican Star”—and QAnon conspiracist—in Georgia. QAnon’s followers, he told reporters Wednesday, “love our country.”

AUGUST 19, 2020



The president celebrated the outspoken Islamophobe’s Republican primary win in Florida, along with a “future Republican Star”—and QAnon conspiracist—in Georgia. QAnon’s followers, he told reporters Wednesday, “love our country.”

In 2018, Laura Loomer, far-right conspiracy theorist, frequent laughing stock of the internet, and self-described “#ProudIslamophobe,” handcuffed herself to the outside of Twitter’s office building in New York for more than two hours. The stunt was aimed at pressuring the website to reinstate her Twitter account, as she had been banned on the platform—which, to this day, still grants white nationalist Richard Spencer the space to air out his views—for violating rules against hateful conduct. Loomer’s offline bigotry includes walking up to people she assumes are Muslims to ask them to disavow terrorist attacks and famously struggles to get anywhere in New York City. “I’m late to the NYPD press conference because I couldn’t find a non Muslim cab or @Uber @lyft driver for over 30 min! This is insanity,” she wrote in a 2017 tweet, which was just one of many similar racist outbursts that culminated in the 27-year-old being banned from PayPal, Uber, Lyft, and even Uber Eats.

Less than two years later, there is at least one notable institution still in her corner. “Great going Laura,” tweeted Donald Trump in response to the news that Loomer, who is currently running for Florida’s 21st Congressional District, had won the race’s Republican primary. “You have a great chance against a Pelosi puppet!” he added, while also retweeting news articles and supportive commentary about her win throughout Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Loomer is now looking to defeat Representative Lois Frankel, the four-term Democratic incumbent in November. The president’s congratulatory tweets are notable for more reasons than just his seeming support for an out-and-out racist with long shot congressional aspirations—which is not entirely surprising given that his 2016 campaign revolved around a proposed ban on all Muslims from entering the U.S.—as the South Florida district Loomer is hoping to seize control of is home to his “Winter White House,” i.e. Trump’s Palm Beach property and Mar-a-Lago resort.

Trump did not weigh in on the race until the six-candidate primary process was over, but the president’s close congressional ally Representative Matt Gaetz did throw his support behind fellow millennial Loomer. When pressed Wednesday for comment on the president’s tweets, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany avoided addressing Loomer’s views and racist meltdowns, only saying instead that he “routinely congratulates” Republican primary victors and that “he hasn’t done a deep dive into” Loomer’s history. Additionally, Loomer bragged during her Tuesday night celebration that she had received a call from Republican Party chairman Ronna McDaniel, who she claimed had anointed her a “political rock star.”

The odds of Loomer dethroning Frankel are very slim, but her primary win offers a look at what the future of Republican congressional races could look like and the thumbs-up thrown her way by the president suggests that he welcomes a party shift toward the younger, outwardly more extreme outliers. Trump’s recent endorsement of congressional nominee Marjorie Taylor Greene—a supporter of the deranged QAnon conspiracy theory that claims, in part, that Trump is in a secret war against an Illuminati pedophile cabal—who won her primary race in Georgia, marked another telling sign that this trend is here to stay. (Greene has also made racist, Islamophobic, and anti-Semitic comments). Trump called Green, who is just one of 15 QAnon-tied candidates set to represent the GOP in November, a “future Republican Star” and “a real WINNER!” and added in a presser last week that “she had a tremendous victory. So absolutely, I did congratulate her.”  However, when asked on Friday for his thoughts on QAnon, which the FBI flagged as a potential terrorist threat last year, the president refused to answer. However, on Wednesday, he spoke favorably about the QAnon movement. “I’ve heard these are people who love our country,” Trump told reporters.

His refusal to distance himself is all the more telling given that his Twitter habits has subtly done the talking for him. Vice News reported that since the start of the pandemic, the president has promoted 90 tweets from 49 pro-QAnon accounts for all of his 85 million followers to see—amplification that is no doubt appreciated by Trump’s many supporters who bring “Q” merchandise to his rallies and the millions who are members of QAnon Facebook groups.
