Breaking: 'Sovereign Citizen' Thinks Georgia Courthouse Is Omaha Beach, Attacks Deputy, Dies


Looks like anotherSovereign Citizen was trying to start a one-man revolution against the corrupt institutions of government (or, of course, it's yet another false-flag scheme to take our Guns and Freedom). The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a gentleman named Dennis Marx (so obviously another of the right's "violent liberal Marxists"), who "identified himself as a sovereign citizen" and who had been scheduled to enter a plea on drug and weapons charges, drove his SUV up to the steps of the Forsyth County Courthouse in Cumming, Georgia, jumped out of the vehicle, and began firing a semiautomatic assault rifle at the courthouse. Sheriff's deputies returned fire, killing Marx; one deputy, later identified as Daniel Rush, was wounded in the leg and is "expected to be OK," according to a post on the Sheriff's Office Facebook page.

So let's hear it for well-trained law enforcement officers, who actually are (a lot of the time!) good guys with guns.

Sheriff Duane K. Piper said that as he approached the courthouse, Marx threw "stop sticks" onto the pavement to prevent police cars from following; he also threw homemade smoke bombs and "pepper spray grenades" to try to prevent pursuit. An eyewitness said that he estimated about 90 shots were fired in the exchange. After Marx was killed, deputies found explosives and ammunition on Marx's body and in the car. He also had water and food, as well as "zip tie" bands like those used as riot control handcuffs. Piper said, “He came for the purpose of occupying the courthouse[.]”

Piper also praised Deputy Rush's quick response, saying that he probably saved many lives:

"It would be a guess to think how many lives he saved had he not engaged him right there,” Piper said. “Mr. Marx’s intention was to get inside that front door and to take hostages.”

Obviously, information is still sketchy, and some details are undoubtedly going to be clarified as the investigation continues, which of course proves that you can't trust the media.

Sorry you didn't get to start your race war, radical-anti-government "patriot," but at least you'll rest easy in the knowledge that you're not a terrorist, you're just a "lone wolf" nutjob, and not to be held up as any kind of example of the dangers of hard-right anti-Americanism, because that would hurt some white people's feelings, and we can't have that.

So, how's that well-regulated militia workin' out for ya?

DHS photo (Every damn ICE pic looks like this)

Donald Trump's immigration goon squads were all set to start mass arrests and deportations of families in multiple cities Sunday, but before the raids started, he tweeted Saturday that he'd decided to delay the operation by two weeks -- to allow Democrats a chance to join Republicans in trashing US asylum law. Trump took a phone call Friday evening from Nancy Pelosi urging him to hold off on the raids, although it's also possible that internal disagreements about the operation at the Department of Homeland Security may have been part of the reason for the delay, too. In the meantime, Trump gets to terrify undocumented families some more and rant about deporting "millions," although the planned operation was actually targeted only at a couple thousand people who have already received deportation orders.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement had been gearing up to start raids in 10 US cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and Baltimore, to show how tough America is, and never mind that the sweeps would certainly have led to more family separations, as ICE scooped up at least some undocumented parents of children born in the US. The news also comes while the media is reporting filthy, inhuman conditions at the border camps where newly arrested immigrants, including babies, are being packed in, leading to plenty of awkward questions about why the government suddenly wants to arrest more people in the interior of the country? (Hint: President Eichmann just announced his reelection bid.)

The Great Deporter announced the delay of the operation Saturday by Twitter, as if that were normal, then followed up with more bluster Sunday.

Kamala Harris was holding it down at the South Carolina Democratic Convention this weekend, and she wasn't just there to kick it at Clyburn's Fish Fry, hang out with Berndog Sanders, and just look extra good. No. She fucking running for President, and she's actually got a chance, unlike the many Mayo Casserole Men who keep jumping into the damn race. Why did they jump in after Kamala and Elizabeth Warren, the only people who are even running, clearly said, "We got it from here, boys"? Not sure, but regardless, it was unnecessary. Doesn't matter anyway because who is gonna remember Dadface McDorksky when Kamala is turning it the fuck out with speeches indicting Trump?

Do you believe in America? Kamala Harris believes in America, and her Saturday speech calls out for justice, and righteousness; where Barack Obama struck hopeful, dulcet, aspirational tones, Harris strikes sharp chords of urgency. To say that she read Trump the riot act would be, and is, an understatement; what she did here raised a crucial reality that some Dems refuse to see. Trump MUST be prosecuted. The Democratic nominee will wear many hats, and one of the most important of those hats is that of a prosecutor. There is a case to be made against Donald J. Trump, hell, there are so many cases, and as far as Harris is concerned, who better to make that case, but a COP? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
