It’s Thursday Threatcon, your intelligence briefing on right wing activity. Below are the best reports, investigations, exposées, and debunkery of the wingnutosphere this week. Due to the peaceful end of the Malheur takeover, our Threatcon Color Code is MILITIA NUT BLUES


  • Cliventheloser

    Wait, now taxpayers have to foot the legal bills for Cliven Bundy?

    • The judge was skeptical, he has to prove he’s poor before he can have a taxpayer-provided attorney.

    • The Bundy family just isn’t made up of terribly smart or decent people, is it?

    • “Nuisance abatement” and “asset forfeiture” are semi-clever attempts to get around the Constitution. They need to end, and soon.

    • Cleveland should eat the cost of the ambulance call instead of dunning a dead child’s family. Robert Rialmo should have his lawsuit thrown out of court and be required to pay costs to the family of his victim.

    • A hearty “Bravo!” to William Orrick.

    • I don’t want to know any more about sovereign citizens than I know at this moment, which is that they’re dangerous weirdos. Since they’re not going to go away, though, I fear I’ll have to learn more. Sigh.

    • Paul LePage and Michele Bachmann really need to go back on their meds.
