Bonus Round: What Is ‘Entrapment’

Meanwhile in Michigan:

The FBI’s Whitmer Kidnapping Case Looks Like A Potemkin Terror Plot: With the help of snitches, the FBI rounded up some unemployed, homeless, mostly alone and angry loudmouths to build a fantasy football-style display of domestic terrorism fear-porn.

The problem with the case is that it appears the FBI, through informants and undercover agents, hatched the kidnapping plot, served in the key leadership positions of the militia group, trained the militia members in military tactics, actively recruited participants, and funded much of the militia’s activities. Then, when various members of the Watchman militia became uncomfortable with the kidnapping plot, with several quitting, the FBI’s primary informant pushed the plot along, eventually becoming the militia group’s leader.

Gee, this plot sounds a bit familiar…

And then there was January 6th – the “worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War” (h/t Joe Biden) and “the worst assault on the Capitol since the War of 1812” (h/t Nancy Pelosi). When its political expediency has expired it too will be exposed as a total setup by our trusted-no-more FBI.

I leave you on this Taco Tuesday with this terse and true observation:

ain't all strippers and burritos my friend

It’s from Supernaturals, a show about another band of brothers hunting demons, ghosts and monsters.

Bonus Round: What is the connection between the Bundy prosecution and January 6th?

I’ll take ‘what is entrapment’ for $5000 Alex.
