For once I agree with Paul, the dude needs to stay in jail, and get a mental eval.

The problem with white guy psychos is that they tend to be fairly competent in killing large numbers of people. Lets keep him locked up for quite a while.

Ill bet the Coast Guard career wasnt going so well.

The drugs is what I wonder about. Was he expecting those steroids to make him some sort of super soldier??

From Jim Geraghtys Morning Jolt column:

The news that a U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant was arrested for plotting terror attacks was midlevel news in a busy news week. But if he had successfully executed any one of the many plots he envisioned, we would awaken the next day in a much more frightened, much more divided, much more suspicious country. Externally, he was the kind of man that is ubiquitous in the greater Washington area: To outward appearances, the 49-year-old lieutenant was a suburban father with a desk job supplying Coast Guard ships, who was glimpsed by neighbors coming and going in uniform or walking his dogs with his wife.
A 49 y/o lieutenant? LTCDR perhaps?? Still, it sounds like he was passed over and marking time until separation.

Its also bothersome that other possible radicals seek access to the military and its training; one of the things recruiters screen for.

There are currently 1.4 million active members of the US military and eight hundred thousand reserves.  This is one guy.  There are probably a few more and other political undesirables like antifa, but I'd be much more worried about criminal gangs infiltrating the military to sell drugs.

I agree.  Unless the stuff about his mental state and drug use is entirely fictional, and it most likely is not, then he needs to be in jail or a secure hospital.  I bet that if it turns out he's just an imaginative druggie and not a spree killer wannabe, we won't hear anything more of this story.

The article has a photo.

 

 

 

 

So four semi auto rifles in at least two different calibers, five hunting rifles and shotguns in two or three different calibers, and six pistols in at least two different calibers.  So perhaps two hundred rounds of each caliber?  He seems to have a few extra mags, but I would expect he'd want a lot more were he serious about mass murder.

I believe that some of LA's 'hard, pipe hittin' gangstas' liked to encourage some of their members to join the military to learn how to actually handle weapons and not 'turn their pistols sideways'.

The USCG does have an OCS program that does result in some older junior officers than you might expect but a 49 yr old LT is probably pushing it even for them.

He was USMC and ARNG before he was USCG. So it sounds like services were passing the buck.

"Plotting". Don't they mean fantasizing? There's a difference you know. Even if he's allegedly not a leftist and therefore evil up to 11. Did he actually set things in motion, made preparations other than having guns and ammo?

Conspiracy theorist Jacob Wohl apparently faked a death threat against himself during a recent trip to Minneapolis, a report said.

The conservative activist — who was in the city attempting to dig up dirt on Rep. Ilan Omar — provided cops with a Twitter message that contained the alleged threat, according to the Minneapolis Police Department.

“I hope you fu–in know that if [I] bump into you in Dinkytown or anywhere else in my city I’m going shoot you and sh– on your fu–ing bodies,” read a message from the account @Drakehomes612.
