Capitol Police are investigating a man identifying himself as an “Oathkeeper” and an “American Patriot who has everything to lose” who has threatened to arrest Sen. Debbie Stabenow for treason because of her support for the Iran nuclear deal.
Jon Ritzheimer, the Arizona resident who reportedly attracted FBI attention when he organized an anti-Muslim protest rally and “draw Muhammad” cartoon contest at a Phoenix mosque, shared his plan to organize with fellow U.S. Marines in an open letter posted online Monday.
“We are planning on arresting Senator Debbie Stabenow, who voted yes to the Iran Nuke Deal. She will be arrested for treason under Article 3 Section 3 of the Constitution,” states the letter. “We have chosen her as our first target due to our strong ties with the Michigan State Militia and their lax gun laws that will allow us to operate in a manner necessary for an operation like this.”
Ritzheimer, 31, claims that after successfully detaining the Michigan Democrat, he and his armed militia “will continue to move across the country and arrest everyone involved with the Iran Nuke Deal” including the president.
U.S. Constitution - Article 3 Section 3
Article 3 - The Judicial Branch
Section 3 - Treason
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
The Congress shall have power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
“We have chosen her as our first target due to our strong ties with the Michigan State Militia and their lax gun laws that will allow us to operate in a manner necessary for an operation like this.”
Anyone care to dispute that Iran is an enemy of the US?
So if the Iran deal does indeed constitute giving them aid and comfort- which many have argued it does because of the repercussions of lifting sanctions- then are these guys justified in their intent?
Whether or not you are pro/anti gun control you have to admit this looks cartoonish.
Ritzheimer stated he has notified law enforcement about his intentions, and plans to cooperate with them “and try to keep this as smooth as possible so we don’t have another ‘Shot Heard Round The World’ situation.”
Atheist Jon Ritzheimer Organizes Armed Biker Gang To Terrorize Arizona Mosque
A guy named Jon Ritzheimer and an armed biker gang want to let Muslims know how much they hate them and their religion by demonstrating for “free speech” in front of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix.
This is a provocation and the leadership of the mosque have rejected the bait, with Usama Shami saying, “Everybody has a right to be a bigot. Everybody has a right to be a racist. Everybody has a right to be an idiot.”
Shami of course is right, these “protesters” aren’t bright, but I do think Muslims in the Phoenix area should be cautious and take advantage of the 2nd amendment by arming themselves for self-defense. Biker Gangs are trigger happy and extremely violent organizations, have people forgotten what happened in Texas?
Isn’t it the height of irony, a biker gang (not exactly known for pacifism) wants to demonstrate against Muslims and Islam for being violent?

I hear ya, but isn't Russia in there right now with boots on the ground?
While many of us may not consider the Iranian people our enemies, there are few Iranians who don't consider us enemies- or at least- that is my impression. I could be wrong. There is no question in hell though that the government and religious leaders of Iran are hellbent on our destruction. I don't think that fact can be disputed.
