Donald Trump has been permitted to coast by on his bombast for too long and soon he will face the consequences. Let us look at the Civil class-action Lawsuits that will be levied soon against Donald Trump personally, as well as against the Republican Party itself.
These civil lawsuits will spring from Trump support of radical ideas such as QANON and their outright slander and libel against the Democratic Party, actions by Paramilitary to kidnap governers, assassinate Joe Biden and Donald Trumps bumbling mishandling of the Covid Plague. Trump thinks he can avoid being held responsible for his actions because he has never been held accountable in the past. Shame, fear and lies are all he has ever known and in the past, he was always able to settle any legal threats out of court and hide them with ‘Gag orders’. This time both Donald Trump and the Republican Party must not be permitted to avoid appearing in court and all actions should be filed as expeditiously as possible, before the election whilst Trump remains ‘acting President’. This is the real reason behind the attempts of the Republican Party to stack the Supreme Court in their favour.
Let us examine some in detail.
Trump praises QAnon conspiracists, appreciates support
By ZEKE MILLER, JILL COLVIN and AMANDA SEITZ Aug.19,2020
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump on Wednesday praised the supporters of QAnon, a convoluted, pro-Trump conspiracy theory, and suggested he appreciates their support of his candidacy.
Speaking during a press conference at the White House, Trump courted the support of those who put stock in the conspiracy theory, saying, “I heard that these are people that love our country.” It was Trump’s first public comment on the subject and continued a pattern of president appearing unwilling to resoundingly condemn extremists who support his candidacy.
QAnon has ricocheted around the darker corners of the internet since late 2017, but has been creeping into mainstream politics more and more. The baseless theory centers on an alleged anonymous, high-ranking government official known as “Q” who shares information about an anti-Trump “deep state” often tied to satanism and child sex trafficking.
Trump insisted he hadn’t heard much about the movement, “other than I understand they like me very much” and “it is gaining in popularity.”
Trump has retweeted QAnon-promoting accounts, and shirts and hats with QAnon symbols and slogans are not uncommon at his rallies.
An FBI bulletin last May warned that conspiracy theory-driven extremists have become a domestic terrorism threat. The bulletin specifically mentioned QAnon. Earlier last year, the Southern Poverty Law Center warned that the movement is becoming increasingly popular with anti-government extremists.
Trump’s comments were condemned by the campaign of his Democratic rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.
“After calling neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville ‘fine people’ and tear gassing peaceful protesters following the murder of George Floyd, Donald Trump just sought to legitimize a conspiracy theory that the FBI has identified as a domestic terrorism threat,” said Biden spokesman Andrew Bates. “Our country needs leadership that will bring us together more than ever to form a more perfect union. We have to win this battle for the soul of our nation.”
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who challenged Trump for the GOP nomination in 2016, also criticized the president, tweeting: “Why in the world would the President not kick Q’anon supporters’ butts? Nut jobs, rascists, haters have no place in either Party.”
Pressed on QAnon theories that Trump is allegedly saving the nation from a satanic cult of child sex traffickers, Trump claimed ignorance, but asked, “Is that supposed to be a bad thing?”
“If I can help save the world from problems, I’m willing to do it,” Trump said.
Qanon supporters were quick to celebrate Trump’s comments on social media, with many calling them a validation of their views. Many have long contended he sends them coded messages of support, and on Twitter, one user claimed Trump’s choice of a pink tie on Wednesday was another signal of support.
Within minutes, dozens of Instagram users began celebrating Trump’s acknowledgement of the conspiracy theory at the White House podium, uploading videos of him.
“Well we’ve been waiting for this moment for a while, to put it mildly thank you @realDonaldTrump,” one Instagram user wrote to her 19,000 followers in a post of Trump’s exchange. The video was viewed more than 1,000 times in just 30 minutes.
“Holy Smokin Q,” another tweeted. “Our President was asked 2 questions about the Qanon movement TODAY!! We LOVE you President Trump.”
On Parler, a right-wing platform popular with some Trump supporters, one Qanon supporter posted a photo of Trump and a bald eagle.
Trump’s comments came a week after he endorsed Marjorie Taylor Greene, who won her GOP House primary runoff in Georgia last week. Greene called the QAnon conspiracy theory “something worth listening to and paying attention to” and called Q a “patriot.” Trump praised her as a “
Trump has a long history of advancing false and sometimes racist conspiracies, including last week, when he gave credence to a highly criticized op-ed that questioned Democrat Kamala Harris’ eligibility to serve as vice president even though she was born in Oakland, California.
Asked about the matter, Trump told reporters he had “heard” rumors that Harris, a Black woman and U.S.-born citizen whose parents were immigrants, does not meet the requirement to serve in the White House. The president said he considered the rumors “very serious,” but later he and his campaign indicated they were not making an issue of the claim. Constitutional lawyers have dismissed it as nonsense.
Facebook announced just hours before Trump’s statements that it was banning some QAnon Facebook groups and accounts.
But social media had already been used for years to fuel the conspiracy theory’s rise, with private and super-secret Facebook groups where members sometimes post hundreds of times a day. QAnon believers often peddle a number of conspiracy theories, from claims that John F. Kennedy Jr. isn’t really dead and is staging a public comeback to baseless speculation around celebrities who have secretly been arrested for trafficking children for sex.
Mentions of hashtags social media users to promote the QAnon conspiracy theory have spiked in public Facebook pages and groups since July, generating millions of interactions, according to an Associated Press analysis of data from Facebook-owned CrowdTangle.
The conspiracy theory gained a larger online following in recent weeks, when prominent QAnon social media accounts pushed a bizarre and baseless conspiracy theory that online retail giant Wayfair was trafficking children through pricey storage cabinets that are for sale on its site. Some of the social media users shared the names and photos of missing children from around the country as proof of the scheme, even though many of the children have since been recovered.
Last month, researchers at online misinformation firm NewsGuard found that the QAnon conspiracy theory is gaining traction in Europe, with Facebook users pushing it on Facebook and Twitter, too.
Far-right plotters ‘discussed kidnapping Virginia governor Ralph Northam’
Associated Press in Grand Rapids, Michigan
Tue 13 Oct 2020 18.48 BST
- FBI agent makes claim in Michigan court hearing testimony
- Six men were charged with plot to kidnap Michigan governor
Members of anti-government paramilitary groups discussed kidnapping Virginia governor Ralph Northam during a June meeting in Ohio, an FBI agent testified on Tuesday during a court hearing for a group of men accused of plotting to kidnap Michigan’s Democratic governor.
Special agent Richard Trask also revealed new details about investigators’ use of confidential informants, undercover agents and encrypted communication to arrest and charge six men last week in the plot aimed at Gretchen Whitmer.
Tuesday’s hearing was to review investigators’ evidence against Adam Fox, Ty Garbin, Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris and Brandon Caserta and to determine if they should be detained before trial. The men are all from Michigan. A sixth man, Barry Croft, was being held in Delaware.
The FBI discovered the 6 June meeting in Dublin, Ohio, during an investigation of various anti-government groups, leading to the case in Michigan that foiled the alleged kidnapping conspiracy.
It was not immediately clear whether talk of targeting Virginia’s governor went beyond the June meeting, and nothing from a criminal complaint or from Trask’s testimony indicated that anyone had been charged with plotting against Northam, like Whitmer a Democrat.
Trask said members of anti-government groups from “four or five” states attended the Ohio meeting, and the complaint noted that Croft and Fox were among the roughly 15 people who were there.
“They discussed possible targets, taking a sitting governor, specifically issues with the governor of Michigan and Virginia based on the lockdown orders,” Trask said, adding that attendees were unhappy with the governors’ responses to the coronavirus pandemic.
The FBI alerted key members of Northam’s security team throughout the course of its investigation, but neither the governor nor members of his staff were informed, as per security protocols for highly classified information, said Northam’s spokeswoman, Alena Yarmosky.
She said the governor and his family were never believed to be in imminent danger, and that there have been enhanced security measures in place for quite a while.
In a statement, Yarmosky said: “Here’s the reality: President Trump called upon his supporters to ‘LIBERATE VIRGINIA’ in April just like Michigan. In fact, the president regularly encourages violence against those who disagree with him. The rhetoric coming out of this White House has serious and potentially deadly consequences. It must stop.”
Donald Trump urged supporters to “LIBERATE” Michigan, Virginia and Minnesota in a series of tweets in April, encouraging protesters who turned up at state capitols to oppose restrictions aimed at minimizing the spread of the virus.
Following the arrests last week, the White House said the president has condemned hate, and Trump tweeted: “I do not tolerate ANY extreme violence.”
In the Michigan case, authorities said the men were trying to retaliate against Whitmer due to what they viewed as her “uncontrolled power” during the coronavirus pandemic.
Some defendants conducted coordinated surveillance of the governor’s vacation home in northern Michigan in August and September, according to a criminal complaint. Authorities said four planned to meet last week to pay for explosives and exchange tactical gear.
Whitmer, who was considered as Joe Biden’s presidential running mate and is nearly halfway through a four-year term, has been widely praised for her response to the virus outbreak but also sharply criticized by Republicans and people in conservative areas. The capitol has been the site of many rallies, including ones with gun-toting protesters calling for her removal.
Michigan, and particularly the Detroit area, were hard hit early in the pandemic, leading Whitmer to put major restrictions on personal movement and the economy. Many of those limits have been lifted since spring.
Fox, who was described as one of the leaders of the plot against Whitmer, was living in the basement of a vacuum shop in Grand Rapids. The owner said he was opposed to wearing a mask and kept firearms and ammunition at the store.
Trask, the FBI agent, also testified that Fox said in a post-arrest interview he considered taking Whitmer from her vacation home out on to Lake Michigan and stranding her there, on a disabled boat.
Fox did not wear a mask during Tuesday’s hearing. The other four men did; all five wore shackles on their hands and feet. They face up to life in prison if convicted.
Seven others linked to a paramilitary group called the Wolverine Watchmen were charged in state court for allegedly seeking to storm the Michigan capitol and providing material support for terrorist acts by seeking a “civil war.”
The investigation is ongoing.
‘Just cap her’: Texts and video reveal details of the alleged domestic terror plot to kidnap Gov. Whitmer
By Sara Sidner and Elizabeth Joseph, CNN
Updated 12:22 PM ET, Mon October 19, 2020
(CNN)Videos, photographs and text messages between people charged by the Department of Justice with conspiring to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer reveal details of their alleged domestic terror plan, their access to weapons and various training exercises.One of the pieces of evidence is a video that was played in court showing the men doing training with weapons as they jump out of a vehicle and start firing their large rifles.The imagery — which is being used as evidence against the six alleged conspirators — was provided to CNN affiliate WXMI by the US Attorney’s office and reviewed by CNN.
“Have one person go to her house, knock on the door and when she answers it just cap her,” reads one message in an encrypted group text thread.
That particular text message was also mentioned in the federal criminal complaint against the men.In an encrypted group chat on September 17 that included Adam Fox, Ty Garbin, Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris and Brandon Caserta — all charged in the alleged kidnapping plot, according to a federal complaint — Fox asked the group if they wanted to accept an invitation from a militia group to join an armed protest at the State Capitol.”I would highly advise minimizing any communication with him. Also there needs to be zero and i mean zero public interaction if we want to continue with our plans,” Garbin replied.
“When the time comes there will be no need to try and strike fear through presence. The fear will be manifested through bullets,” Caserta said.A video of Caserta — who allegedly attended tactical training exercises in Michigan and Wisconsin and was part of the September 13 meeting in which the plan to kidnap Whitmer was discussed — is included in the evidence obtained by WXMI.”If this sh*t goes down, OK, if this whole thing, you know, starts to happen, I’m telling you what, dude, I’m taking out as many of those m*therf**kers as I can — every single one. … I’m sick of being robbed and enslaved by the state, period,” he says in the video.It is unclear who he is speaking with or what exactly he’s referring to.In another group message, someone shared a social media post that included a news article about Whitmer.
“B*tch needs to go ASAP boys,” someone replies.In another screengrab from a group text that same day, Garbin asks a person who would later act as an informant, and who is referred to in the federal complaint as “CHS-2,” how a surveillance trip had gone.CHS-2 shared a map of the area — which is redacted in the evidence obtained by WXMI — to which Garbin replied in a mixture of words and emojis, “suggesting demolition of a bridge would hinder a police response,” federal authorities outline in the federal complaint.CHS-2 provided the FBI with an image of a hand-drawn map of the lake near Whitmer’s vacation home with the distance of the nearest police departments and the estimated response time. A photo of Fox allegedly drawing that map is included in the evidence obtained by WXMI.Gary Springstead, an attorney for Garbin, said he did not approve of the kidnapping plot.”Our client is not guilty and took steps to disavow and withdraw,” Springstead said.Under federal law, each of the six men faces “any term of years up to life in prison if convicted,” according to the Department of Justice.Eight other men, all associated with the extremist group Wolverine Watchmen, have been charged by the state of Michigan in the alleged terrorist plot to kidnap Whitmer.CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story attributed a quote to the wrong attorney for Ty Garbin. The quote was from Garbin attorney Gary Springstead.

North Carolina man has been arrested after his van was found loaded with guns, explosives and child pornography – and a probe found he was plotting to potentially assassinate Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, officials say.
Alexander Hillel Treisman, 19, who went by the alias Alexander S. Theiss and is originally from Seattle, was arrested in late May.
Employees at a bank in Kannapolis called police to investigate a white van that had been left in the parking lot and officers discovered inside a trove of weapons and explosives including an AR-15 style rifle, books on bomb making, and more than $500,000, leading to his arrest.
A Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTF) investigation found he had extensively researched Joe Biden, was obsessed with mass murders, had an interest in racist ideologies, and possessed child pornography.
Treisman posted an iFunny meme on April 15, 2020 with the caption ‘should I kill joe biden?’
Records show he traveled to a Wendy’s within four miles of Joe Biden’s home on May 3.
On May 16 he took a screenshot of a note that was ‘consistent with a surveillance and attack plan connected to a possible threat against Joe Biden or other targeted act of violence.’ At the end of the checklist was the word ‘execute’, according to WBTV.
Treisman conducted internet searches between March and May 2020 seeking information about Joe Biden’s home address, state gun laws, rifle parts, and night vision goggles.
Treisman is currently being held in jail on child pornography charges. He has not been charged with any crime related to his possession of the guns of evidence pointing towards a terror plot.
In an order from earlier this month a federal magistrate judge said Treisman should continue to be held in jail due to his pornography charges as well his plans for the potential terror plot.
According to police who investigated his white van he was armed with an arsenal of weapons.
‘Through the windows, KPD officers observed an AR-15 style rifle, a box for a Taurus .380 handgun, a cannister of the explosive material Tannerite, and a box of 5.56 caliber ammunition,’ the order said, citing testimony from an FBI agent who investigated the case as a part of the Joint Terrorism Task Force.
A search found approximately $509,000 of U.S. currency (believed to be Defendant’s inheritance), books (about survival, bomb making, improved weapons and Islam), drawing of swastikas and planes crashing into buildings as well as five additional guns.
When Treisman was arrested officers found he possessed drivers licenses from three different states.
They also found he had purchased his weapons in states across the country including Washington, Kansas, New Hampshire and West Virginia.
They also found child pornography on eight different electronic devices along with other photos related to plans and ideas for possible terrorist acts.
Authorities also found a handwritten ‘Autobiography’ in his jail cell that referenced mass shootings.
Investigators said they found a note created on October 15, 2019 on Treisman’s Samsung S9 cell phone that described a plan to commit a mass shooting at a mall food court on Christmas or Black Friday.
He also had still images from video footage of the Christchurch, New Zealand mosque shooting that he downloaded on March 21, 2020 and internet searches related to it.
He had also taken a screenshot of a February 18, 2020 Reddit post by username AlextheBodacious referencing pedophilia and executing people he hates.
On February 22, 2020 Treisman made an internet post referencing raping children and posting child porn.
On April 3, 2020 he made an audio recording narrating ‘the perfect porn video’ where he described killing two parents with a shotgun then raping and impregnating their young daughter.
On April 8, 2020 AlextheBodacious stated that he was ‘going to do a columbine for a while, [but] I think it would better to put it towards something more memorable’.
The judge order said agents had found a picture of a rental agreement for an apartment in Canada and e-mails between Treisman to a Canadian immigration lawyer about moving to the country.
A lawyer for Treisman asked an agent if he was aware that the defendant had been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, according to the order.
The court filing said agents had asked Treisman if he had any mental health conditions and they were told he did not.
Following the evidence the judged ruled that ‘no combination of available release conditions would reasonably assure the safety of the community, and that a preponderance of evidence establishes that no conditions would ensure Defendant’s presence in court.’
The Kannapolis Police Department Chief Terry Spry said Thursday: ‘The suspect was turned over to federal authorities pending further investigation. I am proud of our officers for their due diligence and quick actions that allowed us to prevent an incident from happening.’
The reason why the U.S.A. is turning into a ‘Banana Republic’, must be the reason why Donald Trump meets with dictators… so he can learn from them. This is why these class-action civil lawsuits on behalf of the Democratic Party itself for the ‘Child-porn’ smearing by Donald’s supporters; the individuals threatened directly by ‘Trump Groups’ as well as the countless needless deaths from the plague; a direct mishandling by Donald Trump, must all be filed before the election.
Donald Trump has always used lies to appear larger than he is. He also conned these ‘Trump Groups’ into believing that they are larger than they actually are. The population of the U.S.A. is roughly 337 million people. The number of people who actively engage in these pathetic paramilitary right-wing ‘Trump Groups’ is actually less than 1% of the population. Oddly mirroring the number of ‘Scumbag Billionaires’ presently polluting the Earth. They will just expose themselves to arrest just as Trump exposed his hand too soon in the staged protests earlier this year.
Donald Trump thinks his confidence and bombast is all he needs to coast by. Not unlike those who think they are entitled to receive just because they have gall to ask. Such as the Billionaire who begs for a tax break, the Privately owned banks demanding government bail-outs or the C.E.O. who drives a company into near bankruptcy and demand a $100 million dollar ‘golden parachute’. It isn’t funny. It is time for him to directly held accountable for his actions as well as his deliberate inaction.
