A Mineral Springs man was taken back into custody after a judge ruled he was a threat to the community for mailing threatening letters to lawmakers over Common Core standards in the schools, reports Arkansas Online.

According to court documents, Bryan threatened to hang the mayors of  Ashdown, Hope, De Queen, Lewisville, Nashville, Prescott and Murfreesboro from the “mighty oaks” on their courthouse lawns if they didn’t force local schools to replace the Common Core curriculum with the Bible.

Saying Bryan, “has repeatedly demonstrated his unwillingness to abide by the laws concerning the possession of firearms by a convicted felon,” U.S. District Judge Susan Hickey sent him back to jail on the recommendation of federals prosecutors.

“Defendant has an extensive criminal history involving the possession of firearms. In addition to his three previous convictions involving firearms, Defendant has admitted that he was impermissibly in possession of a firearm on the day of his arrest,” the order stated.

During depositions, Bryan admitted to placing ads in a local paper seeking $23 million to raise a Christian army to overthrow the U.S. government.

Prosecutors stated that Bryan’s letter also demanded that the mayors no longer honor votes cast by anyone who is homosexual, Muslim, socialist, communist, atheist, or anyone who worships a God other than Jesus Christ.

He also demanded those people be required to “exit.”

Bryan’s trial is slated for later this month.

Williams asked if the numbers this week are different from normal pre-election years.

"This is quite different," said Ruhle. "The markets have woken up to the fact that this health crisis is directly linked to the economic crisis. The markets can't thrive when we don't have a national plan to deal with the coronavirus. And you look at the GDP, you know that tomorrow, you led the show with it, the president is going to say, 'We're back, baby! With the greatest economy ever.' That's not the case. We have been seeing improvements. We are on the road to recovery. But even if we get 30 percent, 35 percent GDP, which would be positive, it's far from saying we're back."

Brett Kavanaugh revised his Wisconsin ruling after Vermont official’s demands — but it still contains the lies

Published

on

Supreme Court Justice revised his Wisconsin opinion after a Vermont official complained that he misrepresented the way the state dealt with the election amid the pandemic. The problem, however, is that his corrections only cleaned up the sloppy language.

While it no longer appears like a high school mock trial assignment, it still lies about the example he gave in the Vermont details.
