Former Marine said he’d ‘slaughter’ antifa. The FBI, using Oregon’s new red flag law, took his guns away

https://www.oregonlive.com/news/2019/08 ... ce=twitter
“If antifa gets to the point where they start killing us, I’m going to kill them next,” Kohfield, 32, said. “I’d slaughter them and I have a detailed plan on how I would wipe out antifa.”

That threat pushed the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task to take a series of extraordinary steps against Kohfield, including temporary seizure of a cache of his firearms under Oregon’s new “red flag” law aimed at preventing gun violence, The Oregonian/OregonLive has learned.

The task force also had the ex-Marine committed to a veterans’ hospital in Portland. He spent the next 20 days there.

The moves came as city officials and law enforcement prepared for potentially violent clashes Aug. 17 during a right-wing rally and counterprotests planned in downtown Portland that had become inflamed with incendiary political rhetoric nationwide. Police worried that they would end in catastrophe.

Explosives found near Labor Day parade route in N.J. town. One man in custody.

A Middlesex County man is in police custody after several pipe bomb-like devices were found near the route of a Labor Day parade that the governor was set to attend Monday.

Officials detained a man on Monday morning after they found “over half a dozen” devices on his large property near South Plainfield’s Labor Day Parade route, according to a senior law enforcement official with the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness.

Gov. Phil Murphy and first lady Tammy Murphy were supposed to attend the parade, which was set to start at 10 a.m., according to spokesman Dan Bryan. The parade and other festivities were abruptly cancelled by borough officials Monday morning.

No direct threat was made to the parade or the governor. The devices were found during a separate investigation, but due to how close the property was to the parade, officials cancelled the parade “out of an abundance of caution," according to the senior official.

The official described the suspect as a “rogue individual” in his 50s who liked explosives.
Adding:
CBS News: Labor Day parade with N.J. governor canceled after "destructive devices" found near route ...

Thomas Kaiser, 55, was arrested and charged with possession of a destructive device for an unlawful purpose, authorities said.

Authorities later said that a suspicious package with a "destructive device" was left at a bar along the Jersey Shore. Kaiser's younger brother told CBS New York that Kaiser had brought a homemade firework to the bar.

The Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office said that an investigation turned up "other destructive devices" near Kaiser's home, which is in the vicinity of the start of the parade route.

Evacuation zone is growing around the Inner Harbor. Police found a car loaded with 1,000 gallons of gasoline.

Baltimore police discovered a van loaded with 1,000 gallons of gasoline Monday morning and are evacuating several office buildings from the Inner Harbor -- where emergency officials are urging people to stay away, city council members confirmed.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is assisting Baltimore police on the scene.

A police spokesperson said they received a call at 11:02 a.m. about a suspicious van and began evacuating 100 E. Pratt St., which houses T. Rowe Price and and global professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.

6,500 pounds of gasoline plus the weight of the container. That must be one heck of a big van. You'll have fun putting as much in a full-sized pickup truck. Someone is embellishing.

Rounding off, that's almost 1100 gallons (gasoline is approximately 6 pounds/gallon). So rounding again, 147 cubic feet or an approximately 12x12 cube.

Not going to fit in the back of a pickup truck or a regular van, but it would fit in a medium sized box truck.

Did they just find a vehicle with an unusual load, or did they determine there was some primer affixed too to start a fireball?

You'd think that heavy of a liquid load inside a vehicle that's not constructed to carry liquid loads (i.e. no compartments, no baffles) would cause the van to roll right over the first or second time it went around a corner. Sloshing liquids inside a moving vehicle is no joke.

The vehicle is loaded with containers of gasoline. Odd way to transport that much gas. Odder still to park it in an office building's garage.

No sloshing if the load is filled in jerry cans.

The gasoline-filled van reminded me of this story:

'More stupid than it was criminal:' Judge frees Halifax brothers involved in border standoff
:snippity:
The day before their Oct. 26 arrest, the brothers bought a blue 1967 Buick Skylark. Although they didn't have legal documents for the car, the brothers planned to drive it to Mexico without having to stop at any U.S. gas stations.
They filled 21 jugs with gasoline, which they placed in the back seat of the vehicle and in the trunk.

The brothers had no GPS, so they plotted their route using paper maps. Having no passports or IDs, the two planned to cross the border into Maine illegally, apparently by using a road without a border checkpoint. Instead, they found themselves at the Houlton-Woodstock border crossing, one of the largest checkpoints in the province, west of Woodstock, N.B., and east of Houlton, Maine.

Realizing their predicament, Bailey, who was driving the Skylark with no plates or tags, and his brother, who was in the passenger seat, "froze," Munn said.

That prompted two officers with the Canada Border Services Agency to approach the Skylark in a marked vehicle with lights and sirens on. One officer tried to communicate with the brothers, asking if they were OK, but got "absolutely no response," Munn said.

The men just stared straight ahead.

At that point, the two CBSA officers noticed the gas jugs in the rear of the vehicle and retreated.

Diesel, not gasoline.

Investigators think the driver is engaged in theft of fuel. Pumps and hoses found connected to the tanks. Police looking for driver.

Ariz. Mirror: Members of extremist ‘patriot’ group have to delete posts, stay away from churches, court docs say:
Four members of the right-wing extremist group AZ Patriots will have to remove some videos and posts from their social media accounts and will be restricted from engaging in certain activities around the churches they were sued by, according to court documents.

Several Hispanic churches decided to sue them and another group, Patriot Movement AZ, for disrupting their work of welcoming migrant families.

The settlement must still be approved by the judge overseeing the case.

* * *

The lawsuit stems from AZ Patriots and Patriot Movement AZ members confronting church volunteers as they welcome migrant mothers, fathers and children. In videos posted on social media since December, the right-wing demostrators – sometimes posing as volunteers or members of the news media – yell at church volunteers, accuse them of human trafficking and call the migrant families an invading force.

* * *

Part of the settlement agreement reached between AZ Patriot members Jennifer Harrison, Jeremy Bronaugh, Michael Pavlock and Eduardo Jaime includes that they cannot say “in any public forum, including but not limited to, social media or media interviews, that any Plaintiff is engaged in any form of human trafficking or sex trafficking or harboring fugitives.”

That particular part of the settlement agreement also stipulates that the four will have 30 days once the settlement is finalized “to remove such previously published statements.”

Additionally, the settlement states they agree to not trespass or block any ingress or egress from any of the buildings owned by the churches, including their parking lots, driveways, walkways or other areas used by the churches. The settlement also prohibits them from entering any of the churches.

The settlement further prohibits the four from using a loudspeaker or any similar device outside of any of the churches.

The four will also no longer be able to film outside the churches unless they are more than 50 feet away from the boundaries of the properties. They also cannot encourage others to film.

Among all the stupidity of the 2 guys, there was one that really struck me. Did they really think they could get from Maine to Mexico in a 67 Buick with 21 jugs of gasoline? I assume there were 1 gallon milk jugs since anything bigger times 21 would not fit. I wonder if they were smokers.

Tampa Bay Times
‘Trump would handle it,’ man told deputies. Now, he faces prison in threats to Iraqi neighbors.

TAMPA — A Holiday man has pleaded guilty to federal charges that he threatened and intimidated an Iraqi-American family over several months so they would move out of his neighborhood and leave the United States.

David Allen Boileau, 58, faces up to a year in prison on a charge of criminal interference with a right to fair housing. A sentencing date has not yet been set. ...

Boileau threw screws at a car parked on the family’s property, broke into their house, and went through the family’s mail, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Tampa.

He also made several derogatory statements regarding their national origin and religion, referring to them as “ISIS” and an “eyesore to this country,” adding that he disliked Muslims and people of Middle Eastern descent, prosecutors said.

Witnesses reported that, on one occasion, Boileau yelled at the family to get out of his neighborhood and country.

Boileau reported that his goal was to “take care of that family” and to “clean up America," prosecutors said.

Boileau also threatened to kill witnesses who reported his conduct to local law enforcement authorities, prosecutors said. The Iraqi-American family was afraid to be in their house and, at one point, left their home to stay with relatives.

Deputies with the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office arrested Boileau in January at his home, 3434 Pinehurst Drive in Holiday. He had recently moved to the neighborhood. The Iraqi-American family, four of them small children, had lived there for three years.

Boileau told a deputy that if he couldn’t get rid of his neighbors, “Trump will handle it," according to an arrest report — an apparent reference to President Trump and his tougher immigration policies. ...

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.
