On Saturday, The Arizona Republic reported that far-right paramilitary groups are circulating plans to lock down neighborhoods in the Phoenix, Arizona metropolitan area in the event that President Donald Trump is re-elected, supposedly to police left-wing protesters.

“In Arizona, the head of the Prescott-area chapter of the Oath Keepers group, which recruits military and law enforcement officers, has warned residents to be prepared to protect their neighborhoods from feared extreme left-wing protesters who would be upset should President Donald Trump be re-elected,” reported Richard Ruelas. “Part of that the pro-Trump group’s plan involved closing streets and assigning monitors to control access, according to a planning document shared with The Republic.”

Nor are the Oath Keepers the only group reportedly mobilizing.

“A document prepared by Jim Arroyo of the Yavapai County Preparedness Club, and sent to The Republic by a concerned citizen, discussed the formation of neighborhood groups that would be set up to protect communities,” said the report. “‘How will you block your streets and how will you man guard posts?’ the document read. ‘You will need roving patrols, both vehicle and foot patrols. In essence, you are guarding your homes from threats, both internal and external.'”

The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office reportedly told The Republic that it had not been aware of this document, and that it is unlawful for vigilante groups to block streets.

These developments come as other far-right groups around the country — some of whom have ties with, or aspirations to join, law enforcement — have been exposed in online chatrooms as openly fantasizing about fighting in a new civil war and shooting random civilians.

2020 Election

Agitated Trump supporters are still in denial — and they’re coalescing into a new conspiracy-minded election movement

Published

Georgia’s Trump supporters are not giving up. On Saturday, scores massed outside the statehouse in Atlanta, a small sea of mostly men in red MAGA hats hoisting signs hurling accusations against Joe Biden and wearing campaign tee-shirts saying “STOP the STEAL.”

It barely mattered that Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger had certified Biden’s unexpected nearly 13,000-vote victory one day before. Also irrelevant was Georgia’s unprecedented manual hand count of presidential votes on 5 million paper ballots, which was more than any 2020 swing state has done since Election Day to verify its votes.

Trump abruptly ends news conference after 1 minute as reporters grill him on conceding

Published

President Donald Trump took one minute out of his day on Tuesday to hold a press conference in which he took credit for gains in the stock market, which came after President-elect Joe Biden's transition was allowed to formally begin.

At his press conference which lasted almost exactly one minute, Trump credited his administration for after the Dow Jones Industrial Average traded above 30,000 for the first time.

"The stock market, it's just broken 30,000," the president said. "Never broken that number. That's a sacred number. Nobody thought they would ever see it. That's the ninth time since the beginning of 2020 and it's the 48th time that we have broken records in -- during the Trump administration."

President Donald Trump is still refusing the concede that he lost the 2020 presidential election, which has prompted some speculation over whether the Secret Service will be forced to drag him out of the White House on January 20th.

In an interview with the Boston Globe, retired NYPD homicide detective Alfred S. Titus, Jr. said that the best way to coax Trump to leave would be to remind him of how great his life was before he decided to run for office back in 2015.
