"The anti-government group Oath Keepers called on its members last week to form “incognito intelligence gathering and crime spotting teams” on Election Day to root out voter fraud. But the group’s concerns run even deeper. In a webinar last night hosted by Oath Keepers president Stewart Rhodes, Oath Keepers leaders counseled members on how to prepare for pre- and post-election “civil unrest,” which they said would almost certainly come from supporters of Hillary Clinton.
A man who goes by the name of Navy Jack, whom Rhodes describe as a lead intelligence officer for Oath Keepers and who is a frequent blogger on the group’s website, explained that Donald Trump is certain to win the election unless he is stopped by “large-scale voter fraud.” If Clinton’s allies think she won’t win, he said, they’ll find a way to cancel the election. If the election moves forward and she still doesn’t win, he said, America should be prepared for “provacateured post-election unrest and riots” or “false flag” attacks, the blame for which would be placed on right-wing extremists, thus deligitimizing Trump’s victory and justifying the invoking of emergency powers and preventing the smooth transition of power."
“We are deeply disappointed in today’s verdict, which puts our park rangers and scientists at further risk just for doing their jobs,” Jennifer Rokala, executive director of the Center for Western Priorities, said in a statement. “The outcome of today’s trial will undoubtedly embolden extremist groups.”
"Former Sheriff Richard Mack has a plan to roll back gun control, tax laws and land-use constraints, one defiant local law enforcement official at a time
Dozens of sheriffs around the country — including John Hanlin, the sheriff of Douglas County, Oregon, the site of last October’s mass shooting of eight students and a professor at Umpqua Community College — joined Mack in an aggressive letter-writing campaign to the White House after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, in which they vowed not to enforce any “unconstitutional” federal regulations that tightened gun restrictions."
"A movement made up of sheriffs claiming to be the highest law enforcement authority in the country is growing nationwide as it exploits hot-button issues such as gun control to encourage sheriffs to defy federal laws they don’t like, according to the Summer 2016 issue of the SPLC’s Intelligence Report, released today.
The cover story, “Line in the Sand,” details the growth of this radical ideology since 2009. The movement, formed around an organization called the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA), is a phenomenon rarely, if ever, seen in the United States – a concerted, long-term effort to recruit law enforcement officers into the antigovernment “Patriot” movement.
