It's time for the Dems to reinstutute the HUAC. This insurrectionist crap is getting out of hand. If we can send the Commies to prison under the Smith Act, we can send these baggers to prison for the exact same things. http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/intelligence-report/browse-all-issues/2012/summer/sins-of-the-sovereigns Having personally read McVeigh's old BBS rants as background for a book I'm writing about right wing insurrectionist groups, I can tell you, that she sounds identical in beliefs and what she has been taught. You can tell how deep she is into it just from the wording, punctuation, and capitalization in her manifesto screed. She has been viewing some of the "Prophecy Club" videos, among other resources, and it is plainly evident to anyone who has researched the insurrectionist literature and teachings. Even more scary are the ideas these insurrectionist homeschoolers are filling their children's heads with. I for one am going to buy some guns as a result of this. I'm a progressive, and that makes me one of their targets. I plan to shoot back.

interesting ties to Florida. I wonder if she was hanging out at that White Supremacist terrorist training camp that was busted last month a stone's throw from Disneyworld? http://www.linkedin.com/in/randishannon

The more and more I read about people involved with such things, the more and more I agree with domestic go-ahead for NSA and CIA. The HUAC originally went after the right because it was getting out of hand, then it went after the left because it got out of hand, but the right went a bit overboard and soured people on the idea of it. It's time again for the pendulum to swing. We need a Democrat controlled HUAC. We don't want a repeat of the Oral Hatch BJ of the insurrectionists (the 1995 hearings, read them at thomas). How deep is Van der Plaats involved with these people, I'm just watching the associations going on here. The Speaker? Pearson? etc...

http://www.ripoffreport.com/Se... No wonder she's against regulation. Republicans seem to have a vetting problem, either that or the ones doing the vetting need to be before a HUAC as well.

interesting how she claims to have been beat up by her husband, but then becomes part of this Terrorist group... "The next sovereign to die in a confrontation with law enforcement was one of RuSA’s own. William Foust, a prominent businessman in Page, Ariz., and a RuSA “ambassador,” was shot and killed on June 20, 2011, by a police officer responding to a domestic violence complaint. According to the police report, Foust lunged for the officer’s Taser. But within the echo chamber of the sovereign underground, the story was spun to paint Foust as the first victim in the coming confrontation with Washington — the target of federal assassins, Turner claimed."
