Over the past year or so, right-wing and libertarian websites like News With Views, These Last Days News and Polidics have been busy spreading the story that under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act signed by Barack Obama all Americans will be forcibly implanted with a trackable RFID microchip by March 23, 2013. The [...]

Alleged Christian Terrorist Prayed For God To Kill Obama

Judge Orders Release of the Hutaree Nine on Bail (With Pause), Citing Free Speech Protections

After openly questioning the extent of the government’s evidence against nine members of the the Christian fundamentalist Hutaree militia, U.S. District Judge Victoria A. Roberts has ordered the release of the Hutaree Nine on bail, although pausing in the implementation of that release to give federal prosecutors time to revise and resubmit a “woefully inadequate” [...]

On the Hutaree, It’s a Multiple Simultaneous Hold-a-Thought-a-Rama

The uncovering and arrests of the Hutaree group this past week fascinates me because the group sits right atop the intersection of a number of cracking fissures in the crust of American society: religion, belief, distrust, authoritarianism, freedom, rebellion, militarism, victimhood and victimization being just a few of those. It’s unlikely for any one of [...]

Hutaree Neither Christian Nor Militia? Debunking the Myth

The unnamed “CNN Wire Staff” today issued a report with a contradictory headline:

Group arrested not Christian or militia, insider says

(CNN) — Members of a militia charged with plotting to kill police were not Christian or a militia, a man acquainted with the group said Tuesday.

“This is a group that I would classify [...]

Hutarees A Symptom Of Homeland Security Gone Overboard

Homeland Security has been a poisonously paranoid ideology. It’s encouraged us all to live like Hutarees. [...]

Josh Clough Started Out With Sunday School Videos

I wonder what the Joshua Clough of 2003 would have thought if he knew that the Hutaree Clough of 2010 wouldn’t last five minutes against the FBI in his own attempt to spark an armed insurrection. [...]
