I see two local stories from local sources and I'm sure there are more.

FBI says it thwarted plot to violently overthrow elected government and kidnap elected governor and hold a "trial" for treason. (gee, who sounds treasonous here?)

Plot involved reaching out to members of a Michigan militia (according to federal affidavit). (I'm sure it was a "well regulated" militia of crazy lunatics with guns who have to "take back our country and our rats!".)

"Several members talked about murdering 'tyrants' or 'taking' a sitting governor," an FBI agent wrote in the affidavit.

More than 12 people were arrested late Wednesday on state and federal charges.

“The group talked about creating a society that followed the U.S. Bill of Rights and where they could be self-sufficient,” the FBI agent wrote.

The FBI was already tracking the militia in March after a local police department learned members were trying to obtain addresses of local law-enforcement officers, the FBI agent wrote.

In late June, Fox posted on Facebook a video in which he complained about the state’s judicial system and COVID-19 restrictions on gyms operating in Michigan.

"We ain't going to let 'em burn our f---in' state down. I don't give a f--- if there's only 20 or 30 of us, dude, we'll go out there and use deadly force," said Fox during the surveillance operation, according to an audio recording quoted in the affidavit.

“The lockdown has been a lightning rod for anti-government extremists in this country, and Gov. Whitmer has been on the forefront of their targeting,”

(And the US has 4 % of the world population but 20 % of the covid deaths. Before some idiot AC says [citation needed]... Google for numbers "worldwide covid deaths" 1.06M and "us covid deaths" 212K. Advanced mathematical technique called "division". Similarly Google for world and us population, use similar "division" technique.)

According to other news source, 13 charged in plot.

In Covid-19 news, Trump says it must have been gold star families that infected him with Covid-19. Because viruses are selective in that they only infect bad people such as those "losers and suckers".

Fun fact: Some people don't like facts.

    No, you just have to read what I actually say and respond to that. I'll call your disingenuous ass on it every time you don't.
