Elmer Stewart Rhodes, the head of Oath Keepers, a former Army paratrooper and Yale Law graduate, was charged with seditious conspiracy in connection to the Capitol riot, along with 10 others. The arrests are the first time prosecutors have brought sedition charges related to the riot. Rhodes said that he did not go into the Capitol on January 6. Rhodes and his codefendants are accused of using encrypted messaging apps in late December 2020 to coordinate and plan to travel to Washington, DC, to disrupt Congress’ certification of Joe Biden’s victory on January 6, 2021. Prosecutors also alleged that Rhodes and some of the co-defendants made plans to bring weapons to the Capitol.

Stewart Rhodes — founder and leader of the extremist group Oath Keepers, whose members are accused of being key players in the Jan. 6 attack on Congress — has been indicted and arrested, people familiar with the matter said Thursday.

The 56-year-old, who was at the Capitol that day but has said he did not enter the building, is the most high-profile person charged in the investigation so far. He is charged with seditious conspiracy, along with 10 other Oath Keepers members or associates, said the people familiar with the investigation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing probe.

Rhodes was arrested Thursday, after a federal grand jury leveled new charges focusing on what prosecutors say is a core group of Oath Keepers adherents who allegedly planned for and participated in obstructing Congress on the day lawmakers certified President Biden’s 2020 election victory.

Charges are expected to be unsealed later Thursday.

In interviews with The Washington Post over the past year, Rhodes — a former Army paratrooper and Yale Law graduate who has become one of the most visible figures of the far-right anti-government movement — has repeatedly denied wrongdoing.

He said he was communicating with members of his group in an effort to “keep them out of trouble,” and emphasized that Oath Keepers associates who did go in “went totally off mission.”

A Canadian father who has not been vaccinated against Covid has temporarily lost the right to see his 12-year-old child. A judge ruled his visits would not be in the child’s “best interest”. The judgement is the first depriving a parent of access rights on immunization grounds.

The criminals running the show in Washington are the ones truly engaged in “seditious conspiracy” against what remains of the Republic. It appears that Stewart Rhodes was set up by people like the federal provocateur Ray Epps who was NOT indicted. The ridiculous January 6 “Fed-surrection” continues to expose the decaying corpse that is the U.S. Federal Government.

The Sheeple are still asleep and too stupid to organize.
I told Stuart a long time ago, without a real plan to isolate or dismantle the FBI, CIA, SS and the others involved, nothing will ever change and they will continue their raids and arrest of patriots.

The Capitol Police is also an unlawfully created and unconstitutional charter on the land !

What all of you sheep should be doing is holding town hall meetings and creating community militias/minutemen and begin the process for what’s coming next.

So sad, really that it has to come to this.
