Exclusive: Emails reveal secret 'war games' meeting and other Pro-Trump shenanigans by Republican Attorneys General
The nation's Republican attorneys general were far more involved than previously known in using their offices -- and state employees -- for undisclosed partisan purposes over a period of several months in 2020 and this year.
A trove of emails uncovered by a public-records search in Missouri shows that the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) staged secret events attended not only by AG's but by their staffs. It also uncovered a stunning array of political activities connected directly (at least in some cases) to official email accounts of the top state law-enforcement officials.
It’s amazing that Jewish space lasers and Satan-worshipping, child-abusing Democratic cabals and 9/11 hoax drivel could strike a person as more believable than gender fluidity. But here we are, with U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, promoter of all of the above, doubling down on transphobia. The occasion? The House of Representatives voting to pass the Equality Act, which would ban discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation. As you’ve likely read, U.S. Rep.

Boogaloo informant talks up BLM alliance and disavows Gretchen Whitmer plot -- but he still wants destruction
Salon's informant within the boogaloo movement, whom we're calling Sam for this article, frequently wanted to talk tactics, and often flexed military lingo in conversations. He felt his tactical revelations would be of particular value to the public, presumably to prevent or combat cells he believed were pursuing illegitimate methods. But we implore readers not to take Sam's statements at face value. They serve here as a frame for a larger critique of the movement.
As for the tactical discussion, for a broader and more critical audience these observations and Sam's prioritization of them illustrate the fixation on tactical details so prevalent among militia groups, where they serve as filler — papery ideology, window dressing, substitutes for the substance which so many white identity groups lack. (While the boogaloo profess an inclusive and agnostic stance on race, it is telling that the adherents are, almost to a person, white.)
