The FBI says it foiled a plot by six members of a militia to kidnap Michaigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer at her vacation home and overthrow the state government, according to an unsealed criminal complaint.

FBI Claims It Foiled Plot To Kidnap Michigan Governor

Several members talked about murdering ‘tyrants’ or ‘taking’ a sitting governor,” according to an FBI agent. “The group decided they needed to increase their numbers and encouraged each other to talk to their neighbors and spread their message.”

Over 12 people were arrested late Wednesday on both state and federal charges, while a core group of six alleged plotters were charged with conspiring to kidnap Whitmer.

Four of the six men reportedly planned to meet on Wednesday to “make a payment on explosives and exchange tactical gear,” the agency said in an unsealed court filing.

The FBI quoted one of the accused as saying Whitmer “has no checks and balances at all. She has uncontrolled power right now. All good things must come to an end.”

Authorities scheduled a Thursday afternoon news conference to talk about the case. The government used informants and undercover agents to thwart the alleged plot. –AP

Two of the alleged conspirators “agreed to unite others in their cause and take violent action against multiple state governments that they believe are violating the U.S. Constitution,” reads the FBI criminal complaint – which names the six as Adam Fox, Ty Garbin, Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris, Brandon Caserta, all of Michigan, as well as Barry Croft of Delaware.

Fox allegedly said he needed 200 men to storm the Capitol building in Lansing, take hostages, and try Whitmer for “treason.” The plan was to be carried out before the Nov. 3 election, however the the suspects later shifted to kidnapping Whitmer at her vacation home.

In June, Croft, Fox and 13 others from multiple states held a meeting in Dublin, Ohio, near Columbus, according to the government.

Those present included an FBI confidential source who recorded the meetings. The source has been paid $8,600.

“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 Detroit News

According to NPR, state AG Dana Nessel will join federal prosecutors to discuss the alleged conspiracy at 1 p.m. Thursday.

The investigation began in early 2020, according to the complaint, however the unsealed complaint comes days after the Michigan Supreme Court struck down several of Whitmer’s pandemic restrictions which had been widely opposed.

In early 2020, the FBI became aware through social media that a group of individuals were discussing the violent overthrow of certain government and law-enforcement components. Among those individuals identified were CROFT and FOX. Through electronic communications, CROFT and FOX agreed to unite others in their cause and take violent action against multiple state governments that they believe are violating the U.S. Constitution.

“They discussed different ways of achieving this goal from peaceful endeavors to violent actions. At one point, several members talked about state governments they believed were violating the U.S. Constitution, including the government of Michigan and Governor Gretchen Whitmer,” reads the complaint. “As part of that recruitment effort, Fox reached out to a Michigan-based militia group.”

The militia group is not identified in the court filing, but members periodically meet in remote areas of the state for firearms training and tactical drills.

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.

At the time, the FBI interviewed a member of the militia group who was concerned about the group’s plans to target and kill police officers, and that person agreed to become a (confidential source),” the 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. –The Detroit News

“Fox referred to Governor Whitmer as ‘this tyrant bitch,” adding “‘I don’t know, boys, we gotta do something,'”

“You guys link with me on our other location system, give me some ideas of what we can do.”

Such a drama… LOL.

Like a movie plot. But quite serious.


as i said amerika will be destroyed from within. you will see very soon.

Fog of War

All militias are alphabet soup fronts. Only fools join them.

In Exile

Yeah it’s best to do nothing just toe the line, the State may leave you alone then unless you do something wrong, send a mean text message, whisper the wrong words then your door will be ripped off the hinges and you’re dragged off to the pokey after a good beat down. Yes yes best to do nothing.

Fog of War

What trifle, you equate not joining well know FBI entrapment operations to doing nothing which shows your complete lack of operational logic. Be my guest, join a militia if you wish, but don’t cry if you become unwittingly entangled in something you’ll regret later .

In Exile

Yeah any excuse will do to be a coward I guess.

Fog of War

I’m not even ‘merikan Yankee. This is your fight .


Yep, and I’ve got a plan but I’m damn sure not sharing it with you.

Fog of War

Did I ask you to ? Suffering from self importance are we ?

Raptar Driver

Being in a militia is guaranteed by the constitution as a right.
This is why the government goes after them and makes up so called “plots”.
Our government is a criminal enterprise, it is easy to prove this and they know it.
The F.B.I. is a criminal institution with no constitutional backing.
It’s job is to protect the criminal regimes.

Fog of War

I agree, now what ?

Raptar Driver

Well that’s a good question.
People who understand this need to become organized so that we can rid the country of these criminals.
Call it a revolution or just a return to normal. It must be done at some point or we’re all done.


Probably just another FBI honeytrap operation designed to radicalize and imprison otherwise innocent people. I highly doubt any real plan was ever underway.


Funny how whenever some white supremacists do some shit like mass shooting or the stuff above , right wingers always come out screaming “hoax” “false flag” “fake news”.

Zaphod Braden

As all the Darkies shriek “DINDU NUFFIN” dat PO-PO shots me fo no reason.

I see an ” Afro American ” came to South Front just to pull the usual ” racist ” card. How predictable.


I’m all afro and I call out racial double standards wherever I see it.

Fog of War

This site is for geopolitical military discussion, not for some SJW bullsh*t, so if you have something to contribute in that sphere please go ahead.


Every time some trigger happy confederate does a stupid other right-wingers start saying that it’s a false flag and conspiracy to minimize the extent of online radicalisation, That is relevant to this topic. Also, giving racists the middle finger and destabilising them is a very geopolitical act and necessary for my freedom.


That’s racist. Gotta put you in the Block User room with all of the other racists, SJW’s, etc. Oh… how’s the weather in Beersheba?


Only a beneficiary of a racist system would ever consider antiracism as racism. Kinda like how a patriarchy would consider women’s rights “anti-male”….. Wtf is Beersheba, sounds like a place in mideast…

Ashok Varma

US racism and distorted income distribution, which is worse than India or most of the developing world in many cases. Trump’s racist tweets and encouragement of KKK and other white supremacist groups has tapped into the anger of the growing racist fringe. US is headed for a major domestic upheaval.

Great Khan

White man fat and stupid. start war and lose everywhere, now lose to black brother, Jew destroy America with money, money money..

Great Khan

American fat people big joke. World laugh.

Ashok Varma

The biggest threat to America is its internal divisions, racism, military-industrial complex, banksters and the appalling income disparity as most Americans are now impoverished and angry.

Just 59 Americans own more wealth than half the country, data shows

Zaphod Braden

Biggest load of crap ever …..
Just wait as their “plot” unravels.
A BIASED FBI means ALL FBI sworn testimony is questionable and unreliable.
A BIASED FBI means every court case outcome in which the FBI has been involved is untrustworthy.
A BIASED FBI means that everything from WACO to Oklahoma Bomb to 9/11 must be reexamined.
James Comey “When you’re the leader of a justice agency, the appearance of bias is as important as the existence of actual bias. A reasonable appearance of bias can corrupt the American people’s faith in your work as much as actual bias can.”

JUST before the election just like the “van bomber” before the 2016 election.

johnny rotten

Federal Bullshit Instigator, that’s all.


Wouldn’t doubt that 2 out of 3 militia members were government informers and agitators. They start the conversation, set up the buys,,, they’re wired, then they arrest. Over and over we see the same game.

Ask them who is behind BLM / Antifa,,, “we don’t know!”

Ask them who purchased and shipped the bricks,,, “We don’t know!”

Ask them who’s rioting, burning and looting,,, “We don’t know!”

The only cases they solve are cases they set up.

Fog of War

” The only cases they solve are cases they set up. ”

The other cases are ” accidentally ” overlooked. Not enough agents. No leads.

Ken Sebastian

In other news, documents declassified yesterday prove that James Comey and John Brennan, briefed then President Obama on a plan to assist Hillary Clinton steal the 2016 Presidential election by fabricating a false claim that Putin worked with Trump to influence the outcome of the election. They knew they could count on Mainstream Media to bolster their lies in their attempt to discredit Trump’s campaign. The FBI remains silent along with their Mainstream Media.

Lazy Gamer

There is always an FBI confidential source. Hell, we could even speculate, he is the instigator of the whole thing. lol


This is the current year end silver options ladder that I’m building as an economic risk and social unrest insurance policy and profit opportunity.comment image

For every $1.00 that the price of silver rises above the option strike price. Each contract rises $100.00 in value.

With 8 contracts. Once the price of silver reaches the highest strike price in the ladder. The block will increase $800.00 for every $1.00 increase in the price of silver.

A $10.00 move in the price of silver above the highest strike price will produce $8,000.00 in profit. That’s over and above the profit from the move up through the ladder strike prices. Which will produce approximately $3,600.00 in profit.

Breakeven is approximately a $28.00/oz. price of silver. Anything above that by year end will be profit

USA unintelligence agencies can create a plot to kidnap a witch but they cannot predict 9/11 or prove that Israel interferes in their fake dimocracy


FBI is good at organizing it and some treason against elected President


I guess some people have had enough of the BLM riots and the ones who allow it. Can you blame them?


How did the Palestinian knife attacks stopped in Israel?Didn’t heard of a terror attack in Israel for a long time.I was just curious.


They understood it doesn’t worth the consequences my friend. The attacker is usually end up dead and his family’s house destroyed.


Good job.Keep on killing the Palestinians I like it ;)


Can you blame them?

You guys will be doing yourselves and humanity a great favor by getting rid of Judaism.

You might find that positive ETs who are currently avoiding us because of humanity’s Jew infestation and all of the problems that it creates. Will be a lot more receptive to getting involved with us once the plague of Judaism afflicting our planet is gone and it’s Jew free.


Can you stop repeating it all over again Richard? for once I will give you a serious answer and I hope it ends here.
No, we will not get rid of Judaism, since it is our religion even if most of us are secular. How about you get rid of Christianity in the U.S? see how people would react to that offer.
Our humanity is good enough and I see no problem with it, infact we are way too humane risking our soldiers’ lives and willing to let terrorists shoot rockets over here, but avoiding as much as we can not to kill unarmed Palis in our airstrikes even though terrorists hide among them.
And no, I prefer to be a vermin as you call us rather than being dead, you and the rest of the guys here can keep down voting me. I don’t give a flying fuck on most of you anyway.
Now that I gave you a nice answer, can you please fuck off and stop replying your regular BS? I would appreciate it and it can save us both time. You all should learn how to behave from Garga, maybe then I will take you seriously. Till then, release me from your presence.


You don’t care about losing at the UN 191 or 192 to 1 or 2 either. So all of your talk about how humane you are is obvious disinfo. You come on this site everyday and shill for your Satanic cult that has been worshipping the devil from it’s inception according to your own biblical scripture written by Jews. Your Talmud cult manual is full of evil and crimes against humanity.

If you’re all so humane and secular. My suggestion is that you outlaw Judaism and encourage the Palestinians to do the same. Who saw the evil of Judaism long before you did and got away from it. And work with them on creating a unified Jew free Palestine.

As far as being dead. I’m not advocating that. It’s your Satanic cult master elites who are up to their eyeballs in the scamdemic destroying our civilization and planning the murder every man, woman and child on the planet, including you. As outlined in evidence that Jones goes over every day.

I’ve repeatedly shown you quality evidence. Including much of it written by your own cult members. Of what the truth is about the Zionist Nazi collaboration and other topics. And you refuse to even look at it and say that you don’t want to know about it. So before you criticize me for being anti Judaic. Try growing up and considering the information that I’m providing. And debating the issues from an informed, rather than a willfully ignorant, perspective.

If you want to be a brainwashed immature fool, it’s your life. But don’t expect to come on an open forum and be able to shill for Jew criminality unopposed.

Garry Compton

And where was the FBI when it came to 9/11 and about a dozen False Flags ? Doin the cover up shuffle for the Deep State, Israel, Globalist corporations and anyone else who paid.

Dod Grile

Persistence and perseverance.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
