U.S. Soldiers Committed Murders, Stockpiled Guns And Bomb Materials, In Plot To Assassinate Obama And Overthrow Government

The ethical quandary we now face: can we afford not to have Homeland Security ethnically profile conservative whites? The Atlantic Wire reports:

In a disturbing report out of Georgia, prosecutors say four U.S. soldiers plotted to overthrow the government and assassinate President Obama. The soldiers allegedly bought $87,000 worth of “guns and bomb-making materials and plotted to take over Fort Stewart, bomb targets in nearby Savannah and Washington state, as well as assassinate the president.”

The plot was apparently uncovered in relation to a murder case surrounding the killing of in December. On Monday, Pfc. Michael Burnett, one of the accused soldiers, plead guilty to manslaughter and gang charges in the murder case. Burnett told a Long County judge that Roark, who had just left the Army, knew of the militia group’s plans and was killed because he was ‘a loose end.’

    Go ahead and profile conservative whites, i don’t care. Profiling leftist whites on the other hand would be a real problem.

    I see a lot of BS usage of the word “anarchist”. Looks like they’re trying to distance these guys from conservatism. Anybody know what the deal is with the magic book that was mentioned in the CNN article?

        the common element is that the rank and file are authoritarian followers http://home.cc.umanitoba.ca/~altemey/ . Whenever somebody organizes people like that regardless of their nominal purpose, the results are usually dangerous to all the rest of us.

            What they are fanatic about is practically irrelevant. Ever met an atheistic or Wiccan fanatic?

    If these people were of color, or gasp ARAB, this story would be massively amplified all over the place.  All I’ve seen of it however are a few small mentions here and there.

    You know what might restore American Exceptionalism? A brutal military junta!

    False Flag to justify the Detainment of Veterans.

       It’s always best to just assume everything is a false flag conspiracy right from the start. That way you’re assured the most objective view of the situation.

      • Calypso_1

        Bradley Manning was definitely a false flag.
        I’m a false flag.
        What about you? Do you have a flag?

        • BrianApocalypse

          Oh yes I have several false flags. In fact I invent fictional nations just so I can create ‘false flags’ for them too.

          • Calypso_1

            I see you are wise in the ways of vexillology.

    Where do four Solders get an extra $87,000???  I think someone is greatly exaggerating the number of weapons or value…  Or there were more these 4! And im just damn sad they got caught!

    • Calypso_1

      Read the article.  It’s just sad that doing so involved too much effort.

    • TennesseeCyberian

      “im just damn sad they got caught!”

      You really think that if a glorious band of idiots blew a bunch of shit up and fucking assassinated the President, things would perk up?  Seriously? 

      You really think these four dipshits and their cronies would know how to bolster the economy, allocate resources, craft legislation, and keep our borders secure for the five minutes they’d have as rulers of the free world? 

      REALITY CHECK: They’d immediately be shot or incarcerated, which would leave us with one less politician, four less jarheads, and a police state with an iron fist ready to ram up your ass.

      Sounds swell, doesn’t it?

      • mannyfurious

        Damn Cyberian,

        You usually come off as a troll, but that was a mighty fine post…..

      • Cpl.Dias

        please read the story. it states soldiers, not Marines. as a Marine i will ask you not to use the term Jarhead to describe a soldier. there is a difference between the services. thank you 

        • TennesseeCyberian

          You are correct. I should have known the distinction.

    Everyone would like to understand why they wanted to carry out such drastic action.  In America you can’t vote, since Diebold have rigged the boxes – or can’t seem to devise software that simply adds up correctly.

    The presidential puppets seem to be selected in advance by Bilderberg to make sure whoever gets in toes the line. If yuo lift your finger in protest you’re labelled a terrorist and locked up along with the other 2% of the population.  So there isn’t much people can do legally.  So were these soldiers just tired of being helpless in a country run like a giant prison, or, were they just nutcases?

    • Anarchy Pony

      In answer to your last question; both, probably.

  • br26354

    Yes Joe III%er, a “false flag”. I’m betting theres alot of Alex Jones coming out of your speakers. The fact is if it where a white, republican president or someone like Ron Paul, you’d be thirsty for blood, just like me. I wan’t these guys prosecuted to the fullest extent, and ANYONE ELSE who vocalizes a desire for armed deposition of the president arrested under United States Code Title 18, Section 871.

    Jacob Sloan: “[C]an we afford not to have Homeland Security ethnically profile conservative whites?”

    Can we afford to have irresponsible suggestions thrown around before all of the facts come out?

    If the “conservative” description is true, I will be interested to see how far the demonization goes.  Will “conservative white” start sounding like “Muslim radical” did on Fox News over the last decade?

    I see a lot of “anarchist” labels in these articles as well.  And “gangs.”  If anarchist conservative white gang-bangers in the military are not currently being profiled, then yes, Mr. Sloan, they should be.

  • charlieprimero

    History predicts the future. 

    A year from now it will come out that this was set up by the FBI, and nobody will care.

    who would trust the american government after 9/11

    • Calypso_1

      who trusted them before?

  • Simiantongue

    What exactly qualifies them as an anarchist? They’re likely some right wing christian militia.

  • -nightman-

    everyone is missing the point…WHY did these guys do what they did. I think race or religion has little to do with it….maybe their solemn oath to defend the constitution?

      lol.

  • Littlemisteramerica

    Why don’t these militia types buy tanks and drive through banks? I would headbang immediately.
