      One of the Michigan militiamen accused of conspiring to overthrow the state government, kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, and put her on trial for “treason” before Election Day has pleaded guilty in the foiled plot.

      Ty Garbin, 25, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to the kidnapping conspiracy, marking the first conviction in the bizarre case that made national headlines in October. Fourteen men were accused of plotting to kidnap Whitmer and discussing plans to attack the state Capitol building and a police facility, and possibly take out Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, too. Prosecutors allege the group, which included several militia group members, were frustrated over strict COVID-19 lockdown orders in Democrat-run states.

      According to the plea agreement, Garbin has agreed to “fully cooperate” with the federal authorities, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Michigan State Police, and other law enforcement agencies.

      Eight others linked to the Wolverine Watchmen militia group have been charged with terrorism offenses for allegedly taking part in planning the Capitol attack and attempting to “instigate a Civil War.” Garbin and three others facing federal charges were also members of the self-styled militia group based in Michigan, according to the plea deal.

      at least one of the men involved disavowed support for either party and did have connections to antifa.

      I really think there are a lot of people who are pissed off about both the increasing incursions on our personal liberty and the looting of our economy.  And elites in both parties keep telling us that those rightly or wrongly deemed dangerous are working for the other party, but that’s not always accurate.

      Another e.g.: the way conservative pundits lump Biden, Bernie, and Stalin into one left-wing category.

      Destruction is easy; creation is hard, but more interesting.
