More American Right Wing Whackjob Terrorists Caught

The biggest danger from terrorism in this country is from Domestic terrorism.  In today’s political climate that in vast majority means right wing terrorism, wherein Militias and various fringe groups look to kill their fellow Americans.

The weird thing about this one… Is these guys should be old enough to know better.

Now, one of the questions is what (if any) connection is between these guys and the “Oath Keepers“, one of whom was convicted last week for a disrupted terrorist attack on a Courthouse?

Tea Party darlings, all…

Four North Georgia men arrested in alleged covert militia plot

Another pack of McVeigh Wannabes?

Four North Georgia men accused of being members of a fringe militia group were arrested Tuesday by federal authorities for planning to make the deadly toxin ricin and obtain explosives, federal authorities said.

Authorities said that, beginning in March, the men held clandestine militia meetings and discussed using toxic agents and assassinations in an effort to undermine federal and state government and advance their interests.

The four men taken into federal custody are: Frederick Thomas, 73, of Cleveland, and Toccoa residents Dan Roberts, 67; Ray H. Adams, 65; and Samuel J. Crump, 68. They are charged with

“These defendants, who are alleged to be part of a fringe militia group, are charged with planning attacks against their own fellow citizens and government,” U.S. Attorney Sally Yates said. “To carry out their agenda, two of the defendants allegedly purchased purported explosives and a silencer, while the other two defendants took steps to attempt to produce a deadly biological toxin.”

According to federal authorities, Thomas, Roberts, Adams and others who attended the meetings discussed targeting various government officials, including employees of the IRS. The meetings were monitored and tape recorded by a confidential source for the FBI, authorities said.

Complaints unsealed Tuesday allege that Roberts knew a man who had manufactured the biological toxin, ricin, and had access to the castor beans used to make it.

During one of the group’s meetings in September, which was recorded by the confidential source, Crump said he would like to make 10 pounds of ricin and disperse it in various U.S. cities, including Atlanta, the complaints said. Crump said ricin could be blown from a car traveling on the interstates.

Ricin can be fatal if inhaled or ingested

Another Tea Party Stalwart Convicted of Domestic Terrorism

These whack jobs are dangerous. This one went from Georgia to Tennessee to a Court House looking for an armed confrontation with police…

From this video in 2010, apparently there has been some concern by authorities about Huff for a while. That would put him even at the fringe of even a far right group like the Oathkeepers.  What Huff doesn’t say in the video is Huff told authorities he was going to take over the town, with the assistance of some militia groups.

The FBI interviewed a bank manager who said Huff told him on April 15 that Fitzpatrick had been falsely arrested, that Huff was in the Georgia militia, and that 8 or 9 other militia groups were headed to Madisonville on April 20 to “take over the city.” The bank manager said Huff told him he’d see Huff’s actions on the noon news.

FBI agents interviewed Huff at his home on April 19, and Huff said he would be traveling to Tennessee to help Fitzpatrick get the charges against him dropped. Huff told agents there would be no violence unless they were provoked into violence.

Still, he told agents he planned to travel with his Colt .45 handgun and AK-47 rifle. The FBI monitored Huff and observed him leaving his house around 6:15 am on April 20. The Tennessee Highway Patrol pulled him over for various traffic and registration violations.

The troopers said Huff volunteered that he planned to travel to Madisonville to take over the courthouse, to arrest the people on Fitzpatrick’s warrants–who he termed “domestic enemies of the United States engaged in treason”–and to turn those arrested over to state police to place in jail.

Darren Wesley Huff, Georgia Birther, Convicted Of Plot To Take Over Courthouse To Topple Obama

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Prosecutors described a frightening standoff at a Tennessee courthouse between law enforcement and an armed man who vowed to take it over in his quest to oust President Barack Obama. The man’s attorney said he was just a “loudmouth” expressing his political opinions.

The defense didn’t work for Darren Wesley Huff, who was convicted Tuesday on a federal firearms charge that could send him to prison for up to five years.

Huff, 41, was armed with a Colt .45 and an assault rifle on April 20, 2010, when he and about 15 others, some also armed, arrived in Madisonville, a small town about halfway between Knoxville and Chattanooga. Read the rest of this entry »
