It’s the 80s and 90s again. The government , media and democrat’s favorite boogey men back . The “right wing militia” is back in the headlines.
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel held a press conference to announce state charges against the militia conspirators in a plot to kill and/or kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
In addition to the six alleged militia members charged by the Feds earlier, another seven alleged members of the militia group, known as the “Wolverine Watchmen”, were charged in the conspiracy and have all been taken into custody for purportedly trying to target law enforcement officials. That brings the total arrested to 13, according to the AP.
“The individuals in custody are suspected to have attempted to identify home addresses of law enforcement officers in order to target them, made threats of violence intended to instigate a civil war, and engaged in planning and training for an operation to attack the capitol building of Michigan, and to kidnap government officials, including the governor of Michigan,” AG Nessel said.
The AG then explained that the charges are still subject to change once federal law enforcement officials review all the evidence collected during a raid of 24-year-old Ty Garbin’s home in Hartland on Wednesday night.
On social media, leftists took things a step further, as they tried to connect the members of the Wolverine Watchmen to the Oklahoma City bombing carried out by alleged militia member Timothy McVeigh.
And calling for President Trump to be indicted as a co-conspirator.
Nessel listed each charge, including felony counts for providing material for a terrorist attack, felony counts for terrorist acts, gang membership charges, and charges for possessions of a firearm, and the names of all the militia members charged in the alleged plot

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