  1. I was always suspicious of the defund the police movement. I couldn’t believe that people couldn’t see that this was a way to get a government agency to be the police. If this happens, local residents have no say it their community any more. Well, I guess that is happening anyway with the capital police being installed all over the country.

  2. I mean. That’s just Ruby Ridge. Law enforcement operatives asked a man to illegally modify a shotgun for them to frame him because they wanted him for extremism.

  3. I knew it. Theyve done this a ton, it is their playbook. Same with the Texas drawing of Muhamad shooting, they radicalized the shooters and actually watched the shooting. Also tried 2 do it with that Alaskan politician, he refused, now hes doing life. They do this regularly, The FBi targets a group, they send agents in, and they coach and coerce ppl into doing radical and violent things. As soon as this came out, I knew it was an FBI Op

  4. It has also been reported that the senior FBI agent on this "project" to entrap people into this plot was quietly promoted by Christopher Wray in late December and then asked to head security for January 6th. I'm sure we can all guess what is going to come out about that FBI "effort" as well.

  5. Of course the FBI was behind this. They and the CIA/NSA and all the rest are behind every bad thing happening in this country. And I see Pedro on Tucker Carlson, and I'm glad to see him here. I hope we can hear a lot more from him.

  6. This goes back to the Oklahoma City Bombing time when members of various militias in the area reported that “new members they didn’t know very well” showed up and tried to convince them to rob banks or armories. They got run off. The military members were sure they were federal agents. Same as the Randy Weaver story where the feds tried for months to get him to make them an illegal firearm. This gave them an excuse to murder his wife and baby and arrest him.

  7. 4:495:10 Tim demonstrates his ignorance of the law by getting the definition of entrapment completely wrong. It has nothing to do with coercion or threats.

    The act of government agents or officials that induces a person to commit a crime he or she is not previously disposed to commit.

    Entrapment is a defense to criminal charges when it is established that the agent or official originated the idea of the crime and induced the accused to engage in it. If the crime was promoted by a private person who has no connection to the government, it is not entrapment.

  8. That's entrapment!
    Edit: no tim, this is entrapment. When they tells then it's OK to do it, then arrest for doing it. THAT'S ENTRAPMENT!

  9. Create a problem so you can offer a solution. Divide and conquer tactics mixed with fearmongering, invoking fear (terror) to get political results. Domestic terrorism anyone?
