It would appear that, like Ed Brown, Leroy Schweitzer, Rick McLaren, and several other loonies, whoever is loudmouth for Oathkeepers 101 actually imagines that he commands an invisible army that will suddenly materialize at his command to overthrow the government for him and make him generalissimo.

Update-

Oklahoma City bomb plot suspect arraigned on additional charge

http://kfor.com/2018/04/23/oklahoma-cit ... al-charge/
Varnell was charged by a federal grand jury last October with attempting to use an explosive device. Last week, a grand jury returned a superseding indictment, adding a second count of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction against interstate commerce. Varnell faces a maximum of 20 years in prison if convicted on the first count and life in prison on the weapon of mass destruction count.

He entered the courtroom in handcuffs, wearing a prison-issued orange-colored top, pants, socks and sandals. During the roughly 10-minute hearing before Federal Magistrate Judge Gary Purcell on Monday afternoon, Varnell said little, other than responding to the judge's questions. Prior to the start of the hearing, relatives of Varnell's - including his mother Melonie Varnell - gestured towards him, prompting Varnell to smile.

Varnell remains in custody at the Grady County jail, ahead of a scheduled jury trial early next month. However, that date will likely be pushed back after both the prosecution and defense filed a motion last week for a time extension to prepare the case.

After the hearing, Melonie Varnell and defense attorney Marna Franklin spoke to the media and said they look forward to the trial, where they hope to bring up Varnell's history of mental illness.

Not exactly an Oathkeeper but similar.

Oklahoma man charged in anti-government bomb plot

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/na ... 11b0bc53d0
The FBI has arrested an Oklahoma man on charges that he tried to detonate what he thought was a 1,000-pound bomb outside a bank, acting out of a hatred for the U.S. government and an admiration for Oklahoma City bomber Timothy Mc­Veigh, according to court papers.

Jerry Drake Varnell was arrested shortly after a Friday night attempt to detonate a fake bomb packed into what he believed was a stolen cargo van outside the bank in Oklahoma City, according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court.

According to the complaint, over the course of a months-long undercover investigation by the FBI, Varnell made repeated statements about the extent of his hatred of the federal government.

The Oath Keepers are planning an 'ongoing' protest of Maxine Waters' congressional offices

https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/201 ... al-offices
The protest is scheduled to last only a few hours on Thursday, but organizers have left plans open-ended with the possibility to continue for “an indefinite time” if needed.

“This is both a protest against Maxine Waters’ incitement of terrorism, and a stand FOR ICE and the Border Patrol, as they enforce the perfectly constitutional immigration and naturalization laws of this nation,” the call-to-action posted on Tuesday read.
:snippity:
Earlier this year, in a conference call encouraging members to stand armed guard outside of schools in the aftermath of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February, the focus quickly turned to frantic concerns of a coming civil war. On the call, Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes warned that some places of the country like California have already fallen to what another speaker on the call called a “deep state coup against Trump.”

“If [the left] can contain Trump long enough until he’s gone, then they will win all the marbles,” Rhodes said. “If they can change the [ethnic] demographics enough to pack the vote, they get a lock on power.”

The responsible party is unknown, but since this is at Maxine Waters' office just a few days after the Oath Keepers threat, I'm putting it here:

From the Los Angeles Fire Department alerts page

https://www.lafd.org/alert/update-hazar ... -inc0993-0
Update Hazardous Materials; INC#0993; 5:24PM; 10124 S Broadway St; http://bit.ly/2LMjghf; Broadway-Manchester; This alert sent to clarify some information regarding the LAFD hazmat response at 2:55pm. 1) LAFD confirms the building is the office of Congresswoman Maxine Waters 2) LAPD requested LAFD HazMat response to the incident. LAFD did not receive a 911 call regarding the incident 3) The package was addressed to "Anne Thrax". 4) LAPD led the hazmat entry with LAFD providing back up. 5) Only affected portions of the 2 story office building was evacuated 6) One person came in contact with the package and did not have any medical complaints 7) There were no ambulance transports by LAFD 8) The LAFD portion of this incident is closed and any further questions would be part of a law enforcement investigation = LAPD. ; FS 64; Batt 13; South Bureau; Council District 8; BC13 E10 E21 E264 E295 E64 EM11 JT4 RA264 RA838 SQ21 T95; CH7; 12; Margaret Stewart
And the Los Angeles Times

Rep. Maxine Waters' office evacuated after alleged anthrax threat
Authorities evacuated U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters’ district office in South Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon after someone noticed a suspicious package that was addressed to “Anne Thrax,” officials said.

Hazardous materials crews rendered the package safe, but the Los Angeles Police Department’s Major Crimes Division launched an investigation, said Officer Mike Lopez, spokesman for the department.

“There was no evidence of any dangerous substance at all,” he said. “They’re probably going to investigate to see where this item came from.”

Authorities were called to the Democratic congresswoman’s office at 10124 S. Broadway St. shortly after 2:30 p.m. There were no injuries reported. One person came into contact with the package but did not have any medical complaints, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Officials said only affected portions of the two-story office building were evacuated, and people were eventually allowed to return inside.

Seriously deranged. Do I not remember that this cross to the Federal Anti-Terror statutes? I really am hoping they are able to trace this back to whoever is responsible and throw the book at them.


The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.

Vigilante group ‘Oath Keepers’ arrested in Mexico Beach following Hurricane Michael

http://www.newsherald.com/news/20181019 ... ne-michael
A group of armed militia members identifying themselves with “The Oath Keepers” was arrested Thursday night for allegedly violating Bay County’s mandatory curfew put in place after Hurricane Michael, according to official reports.

Anthony Cusumano, 34, and Tammy Joan Crandield, 48, were charged with misdemeanor curfew violation while Thomas Hubert Terry, 34; Brian Charles Calkins, 31; and Charles Randall Moye, 44, were charged with violating the Bay County curfew and open carry of a firearm — both misdemeanors.

According to Bay County Sheriff’s Office reports, the group was driving around in Mexico Beach after the sundown curfew in a white Ford Crown Victoria and a maroon Nissan Frontier, patrolling the area. The Ford was dressed to look like a patrol cruiser and every member was wearing tactical clothing, including one vest that stated “tactical officer.”

:snippity:

“They’re out there patrolling the streets,” he said. “They don’t know the area, they don’t know the community, they don’t know our laws, and that just lends itself to dangers.”
