Last Call For Orange Meltdown, Con't

Last night after news broke that top secret level documents involving America's nuclear arsenal were part of the trove recovered from Trump's Florida resort on Monday by the FBI, the Trump regime leaked the warrant on contents to friendly news outlets like the WSJ, Fox News, and Breitbart on Friday in order to set up a coordinated defense.

FBI agents who searched former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home Monday removed 11 sets of classified documents, including some marked as top secret and meant to be only available in special government facilities, according to documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation agents took around 20 boxes of items, binders of photos, a handwritten note and the executive grant of clemency for Mr. Trump’s ally Roger Stone, a list of items removed from the property shows. Also included in the list was information about the “President of France,” according to the three-page list. The list is contained in a seven-page document that also includes the warrant to search the premises which was granted by a federal magistrate judge in Florida.

The list includes references to one set of documents marked as “Various classified/TS/SCI documents,” an abbreviation that refers to top-secret/sensitive compartmented information. It also says agents collected four sets of top secret documents, three sets of secret documents, and three sets of confidential documents. The list didn’t provide any more details about the substance of the documents.

Mr. Trump’s lawyers argue that the former president used his authority to declassify the material before he left office. While a president has the power to declassify documents, there are federal regulations that lay out a process for doing so.

“The Biden administration is in obvious damage control after their botched raid where they seized the President’s picture books, a ‘hand written note,’ and declassified documents,” said Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich. “This raid of President Trump’s home was not just unprecedented, but unnecessary.
And as far as Trump, the GOP, and the right-wing press is concerned, it's all over but Trump's revenge.  It was all declassified, they can't do anything to Trump at all, and Democrats will get exterminated at the polls by angry Trump voters for years to come. 
Look at how those awful, corrupt federal agents leaked this warrant to the press! Trump certainly had nothing to do with that, and how embarrassing for them that there was nothing in the warrant that could have possibly justified this kind of jackbooted thug treatment! You and your family are next under Biden's fascist rule!
Yes, Trump is 100% under federal investigation and has been for some time. But as I've said before, America isn't even ready to begin to discuss the price that will have to be paid in order to indict and prosecute Trump.

Our Little White Supremacist Domestic Terrorism Problem, Local Edition

Following up on this story from yesterday, the man who apparently attacked the FBI field office in Cincinnati with a nail gun and who then brandished an AR-15 and fled the scene was cornered in suburban Wilmington, Ohio and was apparently killed after a six-hour standoff with police.

A man identified by two law enforcement sources as Ricky Shiffer, who died in a confrontation with police after he fired a nail gun at a Cincinnati FBI building, appeared to post online in recent days about his desire to kill FBI agents shortly after former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence was searched.

Two law enforcement officials confirmed Shiffer’s name. Shiffer was at the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021, according to three people aiding law enforcement who saw him in photos taken from the day of the attack; however, it’s unclear whether he went inside the building. Shiffer frequently posted about his attendance at the Capitol on social media.

On Truth Social, a social media platform founded by Trump’s media company, Trump Media & Technology Group, Shiffer appeared to have posted a message detailing his failed attempt to gain entry to the FBI building.

“Well, I thought I had a way through bullet proof glass, and I didn’t. If you don’t hear from me, it is true I tried attacking the F.B.I., and it’ll mean either I was taken off the internet, the F.B.I. got me, or they sent the regular cops while,” the account @RickyWShifferJr wrote at 9:29 a.m. ET, shortly after police allege the shooting occurred.

Shiffer posted to Truth Social multiple times in the days after the FBI searched Trump’s residence in Palm Beach, Florida, about wanting to engage in violence. One post called for people to arm themselves and be ready for “combat.”

“We must not tolerate this one,” he wrote.

Shiffer's Truth Social account, which was seen by NBC News on Thursday evening, has since become unavailable.

After another user responded that his photo and information had been forwarded to the FBI, Shiffer’s account responded: “Bring them on.”

In response to another user who asked whether Shiffer was advocating for terrorism, Shiffer’s account responded that users should kill FBI agents “on sight” and also target a vague list of enemies who try to stop the slayings.

In reply to another user Tuesday, the account responded, “You’re a fool if you think there’s a nonviolent solution.”

On May 7, Shiffer’s account replied to a post by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green, R-Ga., on Twitter, in which she wrote, “I know they are trying 1984, but I’m feeling 2016 vibes.”

“Congresswoman Greene, they got away with fixing elections in plain sight,” Shiffer’s account wrote. “It’s over. The next step is the one we used in 1775.”

On the same day, responding to a post by Donald Trump Jr. on Twitter imploring users to “Get ready” because “the midterm variant (of COVID-19) is coming and it’s going to be really scary,” referring to conspiracy theories that Covid-19 is manufactured or not dangerous, the account responded, “Do not comply.”

Pro-Trump internet forums erupted with violent threats and calls for civil war in the hours and days after the Mar-a-Lago search, at least one of them from a person who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
This is exactly the type of person I have been warning you about for years now, people willing to die for fucking Donald Trump.
There will be more, possibly a lot more, in the weeks and months ahead.
Not all of them will flame out spectacularly and get swept up by the feds or even end up dead in cornfields after standoffs.
Some of them will take others with them when they go.
For the love of God, be careful out there, folks.
