Armed to the gills, this Georgia militiaman declared himself ready to
die for the cause – vowing to seize control of the tiny town of
Sweetwater and round up the traitors blocking the indictment of
President Barack Obama for his treasonous turn as commander-in-chief.

was a plan Darren Wesley Huff revealed over and over again to a slew of
people, from a bank manager in his hometown to the FBI to Tennessee
Highway Patrol troopers to a talk-radio audience.

Thanks in large
part to his public confessions, Huff faces his own indictment on
federal charges of ferrying guns and ammunition across state lines with
the purpose of inciting riotous violence.

(January 20, 2013. When Obama becomes just a skidmark on the panties of

Yeah – how could you makethis look bad, anyway?

It all started last year when Fitzpatrick, a retired military man
whose beef with the government goes back two decades when he faced a
court-martial, tried to get a Monroe County grand jury to indict Obama
for treason. The grounds? Obama, Fitzpatrick contended, was not really
born in the U.S.

When the grand jury refused to consider the case, Fitzpatrick began
issuing a series of “complaints,” naming some two dozen federal, state
and local officials, all of whom he accused of misconduct for failing to
arrest, charge or remove the president from office.

He and fellow “birthers” showed up in early April at the Monroe
County Courthouse to begin effecting his own “citizen’s arrests” when,
according to the FBI complaint, he wound up arrested instead on charges
that include inciting a riot.

The FBI alleges Huff, a Dalton, Ga., man who claims membership in a
militia, decided to join Fitzpatrick’s cause and told anyone who would
listen – including FBI agents – that he and fellow militiamen intended
to show up at Fitzpatrick’s April 20 preliminary hearing to seize the
town if necessary to free Fitzpatrick and help him carry out his
citizen’s arrests.

Huff traveled from Georgia to Sweetwater with a gun on his hip, two
more handguns and an AK-47 assault rifle in his truck, the complaint
states. When a state trooper stopped it on traffic violations, Huff, who
had a concealed carry permit, again detailed the plan, Van Balen wrote.

“Huff said he was ready to die for his rights,” the agent wrote.
“Huff (said) that if necessary, they would come back and have a lot more
armed people to take over the courthouse and effect all the arrests.”

When Huff and an estimated 20 others actually showed up at the
courthouse, they were vastly outnumbered by law enforcers from federal,
state and local agencies, the complaint stated. The courthouse had been
effectively shut down, with workers told to stay home, and Fitzpatrick’s
hearing cancelled. Still, the agent wrote, Huff and others prowled the
streets with guns visible.

The FBI, which had been tracking Huff throughout his travels, waited
until Huff described his actions on a talk radio show and then arrested
him on charges of carrying firearms across the state lines with the
intent to incite a riot.Huff is free under terms of house arrest.

You see, he’s under…WHAAAA????

Hacker accused of Biden threat also targeted Pawlenty, MN senator ^

Child pornography charges were added Thursday to the allegations
against a Blaine man who is accused of pilfering the identity of a
neighbor and e-mailing a death threat to Vice President Joe Biden.

new federal indictment also says that the threat sent by Barry Ardolf
went not only to Biden, but also to Gov. Tim Pawlenty and one of
Minnesota’s U.S. senators. The document did not say which senator — Amy
Klobuchar or Al Franken — was targeted.

Last week in federal
court in St. Paul, Ardolf, 45, reversed his intention to plead guilty,
professing his innocence.

Seamus Mahoney, the attorney Ardolf
hired after recently firing his previous lawyer, said that his client
“doesn’t want to go to jail for something he didn’t do.”

child porn charges are tied to e-mails that Ardolf allegedly sent to
three co-workers of his neighbor after pirating the neighbor’s identity.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — The governor who became the butt of late-night jokes

Haley won because of Sarah Palin’s
endorsement and not because of Mark Sanford’s, though his ex wife’s
endorsement probably also helped.

Christopher Crawford is a 22-year-old from Orlando whose only
reported assets are a 1991 Acura worth $2,000 and an IKEA couch. But as
of last week, he’s a Tea Party candidate for a Florida Senate seat 400
miles away.

Stephen Taylor, 23, is a part-time Tallahassee bank
teller who filed to run on the Tea Party ticket for a House District 11
seat 80 miles away in Suwannee County. “I said ‘Do you know what’s
involved in these things?” recalls his father … “He doesn’t know
anything about Suwannee County.”

Tea Party organizers announced
last Friday they had fielded 20 candidates in state races to punish
incumbent Republicans who had voted in favor of Central Florida’s
commuter-rail project, or were “big spenders.”

But by Monday,
organizers were complaining of GOP retaliation. And Tea Party advocate
and political consultant Doug Guetzloe was removed from the Orlando
radio station where he’s bought time for a five-day-a-week talk show.

candidates are young, don’t appear to have many assets or full-time
jobs and materialized for the first time in the final hours before the
end of qualifying last Friday. At least seven of the 20 appear to live
outside the district they are running for.

Darin Dunmire, 35, is a
pilot who works in India and owns a home in Kentucky. But he lists his
legal residence as the same Orlando address as his mother, Peggy
Dunmire, who is running for the U.S. House as a Tea Party candidate.

Foley, 24, is O’Neal’s son, who said he and Crawford talked about
running for office when they enrolled at the University of Central
Florida. Foley is listed as Crawford’s campaign treasurer.

they don’t appear to have plans to contact voters. “Contact voters? I
don’t even know what that means,” Foley said Monday.


Have a feeling there is a lot more to this story.

The reality is the Tea Party as we know it will cease to exist within an
election cycle. Its ideas won’t go away, but most of its leaders will.
That’s because most self-appointed leaders in this world simply don’t
know how to win. Mark my words: Without proper experienced guidance theywill
fuck it up. Rallies don’t win elections—votes do. Their egos are
writing checks their organizations will never cash.

In victory one is supposed to be magnanimous — a polysyllabic word
for not being a sore winner.

The race in Utah, the attacks on Jim
DeMint, the other problematic issues behind the scenes, etc. test the
limits of magnanimity.

I am going to go where I shouldn’t go and
say what I shouldn’t say.

The word for today is –


Some of you are really, really not
going to like it.

The race in Utah is the ultimate battle between
those who are Republicans first and those who are conservatives first.
The potential of a Democrat win is so minuscule that the center-right
coalition can have the fight it must have.

Establishment oriented
groups who got fat and happy with years of Republican dominance in
Washington wanted a return to the status quo ante. They did not want to
reform. They did not want to cut back.

For a number of years
people like Bob Bennett and Tim Bridgewater helped blur the lines
between the Democrats and Republicans. Pro-life statists, except when
they weren’t pro-life, they lived off the government teet, misdirected
and abused taxpayer dollars, and drove up the size of government to
uncontrollable levels.

But it was okay, because they have an R
next to their name.

And a working barbecue grill next to their patios.

And with them are Republican consultants who
also have R’s next to their names and who care about nothing but the
acquisition of power and consulting fees. These are the people who can
give you trite explanations about what the difference between a Democrat
and a Republican is, but at the end of the day, for them, it really
boils down to kissing the tax payer after screwing them instead of just

When Bob Bennett knew he was going to lose — and
contrary to what you may have heard, Bob Bennett knew before the Utah
Convention he was going to lose — his campaign and Bridgewater’s
campaigns collaborated and set about destroying Mike Lee.

unleashed the crazy that is Cherilyn Eager and drummed up bull stories
to vilify people like Jim DeMint. The desperate act of trying to cling
to power drove them over the edge.

In so doing, they decided to
poison the well against Jim DeMint. This morning as the sun rises in
Utah, Bridgewater supporters are getting up and cussing Jim DeMint, a
man who did absolutely nothing but say nice things about Mike Lee. But
don’t tell Bridgewater supporters that. Despite no evidence, they

So what’s the point of all of this?Why am I going here
and scratching open wounds? It’s simple:

I’m a masochist.

The people we fight on
our side are not always our friends and are sometimes more our enemies
than the left. Why? Because we know where the left stands. We know they
oppose us. But these others — they pretend to be on our team and work
quietly, sometimes with the left, to undermine conservatives and

The people we fought in Utah — not Bridgewater directly
but the interests behind the scenes who helped him, funded him, and
attacked people like Jim DeMint — would burn our fields and drive us
from our homes in the old days. They would show us no mercy because they
think we, perversely, are out to destroy the GOP by denying them the
right to get back in charge of the American Treasury.

And stop people from calling us greedy money-grubbers.

So we must
do to them what they would do to us and show no mercy. But we must pick
our battles carefully and with wisdom. Sometimes, like it or not, we
must fight on the same side with them.

Right before we:


But that is why I hope
Mike Lee pursues, to the fullest extent, the FEC complaint against Tim
Stewart and the anonymous mailer.

If we keep giving these people a
pass they will keep working to undermine us. The fight for freedom
means we must discern who really is with us.

You may not like
that. But it is the truth.

    And then – Scott Brown.
