      @TribeBills Sabres6ers Why denounce the Proud Boys? They’re not particularly right wing and not at all white supremacists. The president is a black Puerto Rican. 2/3s of the L.A. chapter are Hispanic. They are a men’s organization and nothing more.
      You can aspire to be more than a parrot you know.

  3. If convicted give them life. this is ant-American anarchy and should be dealt with appropriately.

  4. Sidebar: is this person struggling to breathe? Seems so..

  5. Does anyone notice how hard he’s breathing looks like he’s a gapings for air

  6. He sounds like he went for a jog before his speech. Glad these people were caught.

      Sounds like his been sniffing the same drugs as trump

    • James Mccourt | October 8, 2020 at 6:23 PM | Reply

      @It Was A Good Idea At The Time I believe that is exactly the case, and was reluctant to use the inhaler during his speech. In any case any and all snide remarks are way out of line.

    • I think he is asthmatic

    • James Mccourt | October 8, 2020 at 9:43 PM | Reply

      @Mo Byron I believe so, and had put the inhaler aside to give the speech.

    • @paula null Wouldn’t it be cool if we judged speakers based on their intellect and integrity rather than their verbal fluency and diaphragmatic breathing ability?
      Personally, I’m just happy to hear a news conference without political spin. I don’t care how polished or unpolished the speaker is.

  7. I’m glad that the State and the Federal gov’ts are pursuing seperate charges. No slipping through the cracks that way.

  8. This was started by the president when he said to take back their government

    • @Wheatie Sweetie Nobody is defending what they did. Your Gov is a tyrant and the people were fed up with the restrictions. It is their right to protest and object. The militia group is a different story. You and everyone else must take responsibility for your own actions. Period.

      Trump has said in past ” he loves boggaloo” ( they are RIGTH WING anarchist wanting the govermanet to fall so they can setup a all white nation… VOTE BLUE

    • @nevermore from past You smell.

    • Wheatie Sweetie | October 8, 2020 at 9:21 PM | Reply

      @R L T shut up and wear your mask nutjob.

    • @R L T So Trump is a leftist? Because he’s the Queen of Blamers, the biggest crybaby on the planet in the history of this country, ever. Lol.
      And by the looks of it, you and all his followers are not too far behind, crybabies.

    They’re planting IEDs now, they really are the Y’allQaeda.

    Lock them in Guantanamo!

  10. All credit to the professionals who discovered these thugs and stopped them before a tragedy occurred.

    • Right on. It’s about the only thing that gives me hope at this point.

    • The FBI, CIA, DOJ, DNCand the media are the criminals.

    • nevermore from past | October 8, 2020 at 8:36 PM | Reply

      @Glen Hesketh I see your friends got arrested huh?

    • Wasn’t it fortunate that the Police and FBI were there to protect her!!!

      Why doesn’t she rebuke the MEDIA and Democrats for instigating and encouraging the RIOTS throughout the USA with their violence, hate and lawlessness.

      When Trump sent FBI to Oregon the Media and Democrats condemned his efforts to stop violent group/militants in our cities.

      The Media and Democrats support and keep adding fuel to the flames regarding the violent riots throughout USA.
      Will they learn a lesson that when you instigate violence, you don’t have control of where that violence will turn.
      (Play with fire, going to get burned)

      From an article:
      The plot also included at least seven members of a Michigan militia known as the Wolverine Watchmen accused by state officials on Thursday of
      targeting police,
      making threats to “instigate civil war”
      and helping to plan Whitmer’s kidnapping, according to state and federal officials

      The RIOTS across our Nation are worse then what any Foreign Terrorists could ever do to America.

      Martin Luther King –
      His protestors carried no guns,
      took no lives, killed no children,
      didn’t burn and loot businesses,
      didn’t damage and destroy property and terrorize neighborhoods.
      Didn’t burn the American Flag.

      Please THINK People
      Obama was President for 8 years. It isn’t about racism.
      If it was, Obama would have already addressed it.
      And if America had such a racism problem how did Obama get elected 2x in the 1st place.

      This is about causing Division and Chaos, Violence, Lawlessness and Paranoia
      throughout America,
      under cover of a social justice cause,
      To keep people from speaking out against it.

      Everyone in America has the right to Peacefully Assemble for whatever cause they chose to protest

      But Riots are NOT Peaceful Assembly:
      violence, hate,
      destruction, shootings and killings.

      Causing paranoia like when Bubba the race car driver, everyone thought a garbage door pull,
      that had been there for years,
      was suddenly a noose.
      Though it was a very nice show of solidarity for All Race car drivers to support him.
      And that is the Real America
      United together
      as a diverse mixing pot
      of all colors and all nationalities,
      supporting each other through difficult times.

      The Mainstream Media and Democrats just feeds the flames of hate, divisions, and violence,

      There is no perfect country.
      And no perfect people.

      However, America has been the envy of the world and the refuge of Millions of immigrants throughout the World of All Nationalities and Colors.

      Let us Respect each other 1st

      No Violence,
      No Stealing,
      No Destroying and Burning Property,
      and NO KILLING

      Dialogue, peace, unity,
      That can lead to a better America.
      Destruction, violence, killing, only increases
      Fear and Hate,
      and Divides more and more.

      We were United as a Nation
      against Terrorism after 9/11

      Let us appreciate the abundant blessings we have in this country.

      It is a Heritage to be guarded,
      And appreciated.

      And strive to live by our Highest Ideals in Peace and Unity together as AMERICANS!

      All Americans Lives Matter!!!

    • Here is the ringleader talking. https://youtu.be/XTPLFLPOpRk

  11. Thank god we still have places like the FBI to protect us

    • Are you kidding me? They were caught plotting a coup with the DNC, CIA, FBI, DOJ and Obama. Wake the f&#k up .

  12. This man seems to be struggling to breathe. Sounds like he needs some
    respiratory support

  13. Funny that one of their last names is Fox.

    I can’t imagine AG Barr being too happy about US Attorney Andrew Birge right about now.

    “Deplorable” was right on the money.

  16. I can’t listen to this man talk. All I hear is his inhales and saliva.

  17. Wow, thats like Baader-Meinhoff gang in Germany in the 70s and 80s…

  18. This country is falling apart. I can’t believe the depths to which we’ve succumbed.

  19. I wish the USA handled all cases this way not just there people in power…

    • Yup, when they are burning down the cities these blue politicians are supposed to be governing, mums the word.

    • I agree we need to get tough on crime to protect ALL AMERICANS!!

    The suspects were just “standing down and standing by” as instructed when they were arrested. Shameful!!!
