Another Proud Boy piece of trash is off the streets. According to his logic, anyone who once served in the military has the right to physically attack whomever they want. #ProudBoys #POYB #FAFO…
Let's hope the judge reads this part during sentencing: Image
The jury is not going to like all of that body cam footage of James screaming "I'm military fucking police!" while charging the Capitol Police with a weapon. Image

Proud Boy Wannabe Andrew Bennett has pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor and was fully cooperative with investigators. #ProudBoys #POYB #FAFO…
He applied to join the Maryland Proud Boys but they never got back to him. So he bought a #FAFO hat and wore it to the insurrection where ... he found out.
Too bad the #ProudBoys never got back to him. The fact that he was "entirely cooperative" with the government's investigation suggests that he would have fit right in. #POYB #FAFO

Here's how we handle this one:

At least he didn't hire Epstein's attorney using campaign contributions to defend himself for crimes outside his scope of work by sex-trafficking a child and snorting cocaine off of taxpayer paid "consultants".

Fox & the gang of propagandists are attempting to distract from Gaetz’s legal troubles & likelihood he has violated campaign finance laws to defend himself against crimes unrelated to his position.
Also, he's butt hurt. @RepSwalwell
The sources are not exemplary stewards of monetary expenditures.

Hint: Who did Gaetz text after he threatened a witness of the impeachment trial which @RepSwalwell sat on the committee for?

Another ProudBoy and (until yesterday) active duty police officer Kevin Tuck has been arrested along with his idiot son (also a Proud Boy). And yes that's a white power sign he's flashing. #POYB #FAFO…
The Proud Boys love to scream about Communism but when arrested they cry to the judge that they are too poor and need to be represented by a public defender. SAD! #POYB #FAFO…
Six of the eight #ProudBoys in this insurrectionist class photo have now been arrested #POYB #FAFO Image

#CapitolRiot: Alright, with Monday's hearings done, let's take a look at the rest of the week. Tomorrow at 11:30 a.m., Trump-appointee Federico Klein will be back in court. Last month the DOJ said it had extended him a plea offer. No response yet. @wusa9…
#CapitolRiot: Busy day on Wednesday. First, a hearing for Guy Reffitt, an alleged Texas Three Percenter accused of bringing guns to D.C. on January 6 and then of threatening his family if they informed the FBI about his involvement. @wusa9
#CapitolRiot: At the same time as Reffitt, a different judge will hear from Jeffrey McKellop, the former special forces soldier from Virginia accused of throwing a flagpole like a spear at an officer. @wusa9 @EricFlackTV…

This is a message to those threatening to illegally release or suggest that they'll illegally release *my* sealed Pers Military Records...

Please lookup the National Secrets Act and how it applies to Veterans upon their completion of service before any chuds do anything stupid.
Active duties that may be considering sharing sealed info? National Secrets Act applies to you currently, along with the #NatDefAct violating it could be used as Grounds for your Dishonourable Discharge/"Drum-out" or even potential #Treason charges.

Choose your actions wisely.
One such goof's already committed to writing about me: "...his recruiter should have been shot in the face..."

That was a folly committed by a long-retired Artillery NCM from Quebec.

1|Deep in the Gaetz-Greenberg web: A tangled tale of money, sex and Florida Republicans

Where do GOP operative Leslie Anne Key and her son — now indicted on sexual abuse charges — fit in the Gaetz mess?

By @ZTPetrizzo…

1/Greenberg's victim atty:
“Dorworth has a history of hiring local provocateur,” referring to blogger #JacobEngels. Email cited an unrelated defamation suit against Engels-which the atty claimed #ChrisDorworth was the financier of the alleged defamation. By @WFTV h/t @RogerWants
2/ #MattGaetz defended Engels, and like a good the Wingman Greenberg was, he amplified his defense.
3/Engels runs a publication called Central Florida Post. He made FB Live posts about Beute days before Greenberg’s arrest. (See ⬇️ for an into to #JacobEngels)

"Finley's lawyer, Aaron D. Moss, declined to comment on whether his client is considering a plea deal." These guys are all going to turn on each other. #ProudBoys #FAFO #POYB #NobleRat
Finley, is Black and can be seen in the previous photo flashing the white power hand sign alongside Tarrio who is cuban and part Black. Tarrio is also flashing the same hand sign. Read on for Finley's ridiculous explanation about that.
"When you're a conservative and you hear about a conservative group that's universally hated, you kind of want to investigate. 'Oh, they're white nationalists and they're Nazis,' and shit like that. So, I said, 'Fuck it, I'll apply, and I'll join.'"

#BeanieGiant is ID'd as #ProudBoy Gregory Kevin Mullin of Roscoe, NY, who assaulted police barricades at #CapitolRiots & vowed to kill Biden "You won’t be laughing when We the People hang Biden & Harris in the streets...then we will come for Soros and the media" #SeditionHunters

1/ Update on this story and it's a doozie, (but not a whopper). We don't tell whoppers around here. All of this is true and open-sourced. Marshall left the Infrastructure Ministry after his Proud Boy ties were revealed in this expose:…
2/ His dad (Jim Darbyshire)'s LinkedIn shows he was put in charge of the Toronto Police Public Order Unit - Special Events section AFTER his son participated in and emcee'd a pro-Proud Boys support rally with the JDL in 2017.…
3/ Daddy was also logistics lead at the G20. He has a certificate from the RCMP for ‘Counter-terrorism’ (also 2018). His son was at Queens Park demonstrating with extremists, on behalf of a now designated terror group! Is every journalist in this country asleep at their desks?

Quick THREAD 1/
2/ The indictment covers Nov-Dec fundraising & organizing (also covered in superseded indictments) but gets INTERESTING on January 4th...

When #ProudBoys "Chairman" Enrique Tarrio is arrested, accused conspirators panic that communications are compromised & create new channels.
3/ KEY: one of the indicted #ProudBoys posts messages on various PB chats claiming "no plan" [me speculating: meant to confuse listeners?]...

An hour later unindicted co-conspirator 1 ("UCC-1") is busy planning & directing the newly created small group.

Who is this UCC-1?

3/ #ProudBoys' street violence IS their PR strategy.

It perpetuates the myth of constant danger from an adversary that they protect 'us' from.
