I'm watching the Joint Oversight Hearing on the Jan 6 security failures. The attack is being characterized as an insurrection by white supremacists and other extremist groups. Downplaying militia, Oath Keeper, III%er, and QAnon roles means that they still don't get what happened.
Our elected officials and possibly our federal LE leaders need a crash course in Anti-Government Extremism, how it relates to white supremacist groups, and why distinguishing between the groups matters (different goals, victims, and methods.)
Violent right-wing extremism is a big umbrella that is *significantly* larger today than it was four years ago.
Under that big umbrella, there are several subgroups:
Single Issue Extremists
Unaffiliated pro-Trump supporters
"General delivery" is also a common sovereign citizen tactic. They believe that using a street address makes them subject to federal and state jurisdiction. Sovs often use "general delivery" and put their zip code in brackets. 
Rural sovs can usually get away with "general delivery" but city sovs won't realistically get their mail without an address, so they compromise by adding c/o in front of the address.
Some Moorish groups have the c/o preprinted on their ID template.
Two years ago, the Kinney family lost their home in a foreclosure. The family, represented by their non-lawyer son, a sovereign citizen, tried to fight the foreclosure and in September, they were evicted by the police under order from the court.
The Kinney family had lived in the home for decades, but had taken out loans and then refinanced those loans to pay for their son's legal bills.
In response to the eviction, local activists took up the cause, and over the next few weeks, support grew.
The home and the surrounding blocks, have now been taken over by protesters as a autonomous zone, similar to what happened this summer in Seattle. koin.com/local/multnoma…
The We The People Convention (WTPC) took out a full page ad yesterday in the Washington Times calling for martial law. This has been endorsed by the recently pardoned Michael Flynn, Trump lawyer Lin Wood and former Trump lawyer Sidney Powell.
The text of the ad is quite remarkable. Since I see a lot of people posting excerpts, I'm going to post the entire manifesto here. This is part 1.
Action News has learned that police got a tip about a group, possibly a family, driving up from Virginia in a Hummer to unleash an attack at the Convention Center where votes are being counted in Philadelphia. 6abc.com/amp/7689932/?_…
The suspect in the video is not dressed as militia.
I woke up this morning to an undecided presidential election, an incumbent who declared victory nonetheless, and a fresh cup of coffee.
Not great, but not unexpected.
And then I logged into Facebook.
Good news, though. At least I should be getting fewer hate messages that all look something like "How dare you downplay the fact that militia terrorist are 100% guaranteed to take over polling places by force, you f***ing, fascist, militia-sympathizing c**t."
Are kids even trick or treating this year? If so, how are you handling it if coming into contact with germ infested princesses and pirates isn't your thing?
My plan is to put a bowl of candy on a box at the end of my well-lit driveway with a sign.
I don't even like children, but, damn, it sucks to be a kid in 2020.
Two Halloween stories from my youth. My mom said, "Never ever accept anything that isn't a wrapped candy." Well, we lived near a prof baseball player named Steve Garvey and he was handing out signed baseballs to trick or treaters. I dutifully handed mine back to him.
