I told Bubba to run, but he wouldn’t listen. I tried to warn him about those FBI boys, being good and all. Not 007 good, but Tom Hanks good. But now…it’s too late, a Federal Grand Jury released indictments on three members of the “Oath Keepers.” Sounds like a name Spanky and Alfalfa came up with. The accused are Thomas Edward Caldwell, Jessica Marie Watkins and Donovan Ray Crowl.
The trio have been charged with Conspiracy in the attempted Coup de tat of January 6th. A Federal Grand Jury has looked at the evidence gathered by the FBI and decided that they think the best place for these folks would be in jail! What do you suppose the next jury is gonna think after being shown the same evidence? Bye Bubba.
Federal agents produced Facebook Pages and messages shared by the accused.
“All members are in the tunnels under capital seal them in,” and “Go through back house chamber doors facing N left down hallway down steps,”- Thomas Edward Caldwell
“I need you fighting fit by innaugeration”- (original spelling) Jessica Marie Watkins
“Trump wants all able bodied Patriots to come.”- Jessica Marie Watkins
“If Trump activates the Insurrection Act, I’d hate to miss it,” – Jessica Marie Watkins
“I believe we will have to get violent to stop this,” – Thomas Edward Caldwell
“Biden may still yet be our President, if he is, our way of life as we know it is over. Our Republic would be over. Then it is our duty as Americans to fight, kill and die for our rights.” – Jessica Marie Watkins
“bringing the tools if something goes to hell. That way the boys don’t have to try and schlep weps on the bus, He’ll bring them in his truck the day before.” – Thomas Edward Caldwell to Jessica Marie Watkins
Oh, Bubba! If only you had known about conspiracy laws. Everyone you spoke with is in trouble. Anyone who walked your dog for you is in trouble. Convenience store operators where you bought cigarettes and bubble gum will be interviewed. Your neighbors will be interviewed, and boy oh boy, will they be mad. But you don’t need to worry about that because you’ve entered the bowels of the Federal Prison system from which you will never emerge from vertically. It’s like the Oprah Windfrey Show, “You get twenty years! And you get twenty years! And you get twenty years!” Then there is the issue of those weps you didn’t want the boys to carry. Bringing weapons across state lines for the purpose of committing a felony insurrection. “Hello, Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms? Have I got a story for you. That gun charge is a twenty-year minimum and we are just getting started.
These stepchildren of conservatism and they are their offspring. They are the face of the modern Republican Party. Try as they might to disown them and condemn violence, they must reside with them in the same abode. Mitch McConnell is a Proud Boy and Ted Cruz a Ku Klux Klansman, interchangeable and inseparable. You cannot be a member of a political Party that welcomes such ilk but say, “I’m not one of them, we just happen to agree on tax policy. See, I’m from the more moderate wing of the Fascist Party. I supported the insurrection but didn’t take part myself.”
Republican Senators soil their Depends, “If we vote to acquit Trump, America will hate us but the crazies in the Party might leave us alone. If we vote to convict Trump, America won’t hate us, but the crazies might take over the Party. A bona fide 2021, late model, low milage Fascist Party with all the bells and whistles. The Republicans would sell their immortals souls if they had them to make this insurrection mess all go away. Quiet everybody! Shhh! We’re hoping America forgets. When in walks Freshman Republican, Marjorie Taylor Green. Green has marked herself as the “Guns and Violence Caucus” of the Republican Party. Making her first act in Congress, filing articles of impeachment against Joe Biden sworn in just hours before.
Too kooky to be taken seriously and too serious to be written off as a kook. Think Sarah Palin in a bad mood at the Turkey farm. At a recent townhall in Dalton, Georgia, Green used police to eject invited Press and threaten them with arrest for asking the Representative a question. They called it creating a disturbance. The media disturbed the question-and-answer session by asking Ms. Green a disturbing question. The question? “What do you think about the resolution to have you expelled from Congress?” A fair question amidst the conversations of filling potholes and building better schools. It does limit those plans for the future though but is a great Resume builder, “I was once elected to Congress before being thrown out after my first month.”
Bellicose, insulant and a perpetual victim of the crooked media. Now who does that sound like? Yet she is the most vulnerable, her QAnon history and prevalent peddling of conspiracy theories and support for such groups as the “Oath Keepers.” God help them both if there were any random casual conversations between them. “Have a safe trip or see you soon!” Gray Bar Hotel!
The Republican Party faces the most difficult issue ever faced by an American political party. Support the laws and oaths they have sworn to protect or defend Sedition. Defend the Proud Boys, Defend the Klan and defend the beating death of a Policeman.
The Republican members who instigated the crowd with their known to be phony objections are just as guilty as the “Oath Keepers.” The FBI believes this to be a conspiracy and that is real bad news for the Republicans. Under Conspiracy laws the FBI can go anywhere in search of conspirators. You can be an unwitting member of a conspiracy yourself and still go to jail. Just being there makes you a part of the conspiracy. Just taking your constituents on a little tour of the Capitol the day before the insurrection is a crime, it’s conspiracy Bubba!
The FBI pursuing conspiracy charges tells you there’s a hard rain gonna fall.
