Just your average everyday Nazi train terrorist

A neo-Nazi dude who wanted to play railroad engineer has been charged with terrorism after he broke into a restricted part of an Amtrak train and set off its emergency braking system in October. Last Wednesday, a federal district court unsealed charging documents in the case against 26-year-old Taylor Wilson, of St. Charles, Missouri. Wilson was charged with "terrorism attacks and other violence against railroad carriers and against mass transportation systems," and in this particular bit of white guy terrorism, there wasn't even a fake FBI collaborator to help the guy become a terrorist.

Wilson was on Amtrak's California Zephyr, which was carrying about 175 people eastbound through Nebraska in the early morning of October 22 when he left his seat, somehow got from the passenger cars into the unoccupied cab of the second locomotive pulling the train, and activated the emergency brake in an attempt to derail the train, according to the criminal complaint filed by an FBI agent. After the train stopped, without derailing, two conductors on the train crew found Wilson sitting in the engineer's seat, "playing with the controls"; the train crew subdued Wilson and held him for an hour while waiting for law enforcement to make it out to the remote location. At one point while they were trying to get him to calm down, Wilson said, "Fuck that, what are you going to do, shoot me?" Apparently he thinks train crews go around packing heat, because he is an Aryan warrior who has seen too many movies.

Wilson tried to reach for a gun in his waistband, but the train staff held him down. When they asked him why he'd activated the brakes, Wilson explained, "I want your job." That's not how Amtrak's hiring process works at all! He really should have checked their website. Another conductor interviewed by the FBI said Wilson was sometimes "lucid then would start saying crazy things about going to the moon," and that he "continually goaded" train staff while waiting for law enforcement to arrive, saying "I’m the conductor, bitch."

When a deputy arrived and patted him down, the deputy asked him what a bulge in one pocket was, and Wilson replied, "My dick." It turned out to be a speedloader for his revolver; his backpack also contained three more speedloaders, a box of .38 ammo, and a knife, plus a construction-style respirator. No further details about Wilson's dick appear in the complaint.

When he was booked, Wilson was found to be carrying business cards for "The National Socialist Movement" located in Detroit, and for the "Covenant Nation Church of the Lord Jesus Christ," one of those "Christian Identity" churches so popular with your neo-Nazis. According to a witness quoted in the complaint, Wilson had attended the white power demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia, last year, and was very upset about protests in St. Louis, which had provoked him to express "an interest in 'killing black people.'"

Wilson had also told the witness that he and his white power ranger pals had vandalized a number of St. Louis businesses in September by putting up "WHITES ONLY" stickers in their windows. He also told the witness he had pointed a gun at a black guy while driving on a highway; the description of the incident matched an unsolved road rage case from 2016. It's nice to wrap up some loose ends. No charges have yet been filed in those incidents.

Like any good Racial Holy Warrior, Wilson also had his very own arms cache; he had a store of ammunition, magazines for several weapons, gunpowder, white supremacy literature, and body armor in a hidden compartment behind his refrigerator, and his father turned over some 15 rifles and handguns -- including one gun illegally modified to fully automatic fire and another with a sawed-off barrel -- plus more magazines and ammo and a tactical body armor carrier with ceramic ballistic plates. For self defense, probably, in case of government tyranny.

Wilson was arrested December 23 and has been found competent to stand trial, and he will never, ever get a job with any railroad now. The Trump administration has so far said nothing about the terrorism charge against this very fine person, either to condemn his actions or to suggest he might be appointed to a position in the Department of Transportation.

Robbin Young. Fair use so we can all see the boob picture she sent to her 12 true loves.

Robbin Young starred in the Roger Moore masterpiece For Your Eyes Only as the seventh female lead, "Girl in Flower Shop." She also starred in a bunch of Playboys, and the DM's of a humble Romanian hacker who stole her heart. But he was not a humble Romanian hacker, he was 12 Russian military intelligence officers in a trench coat. And now Young has shared those DMs and pictures of her buzzies with the Sun, because that's the one that's fookin' classy.

See how she loved! See how Guccifer ghosted her ass! See how she loves him (them) still! See how she was all up in Seth Rich and shit! (We think Young's judgment might not be awesome.) Also she wrote this "erotic poem," and we're going to need you to read it.

And now it is time for your weekly reminder that in the Trump era, FUCKING APESHIT OUTRAGE WORKS.

On Monday, Donald Trump, the transactional president who for some godforsaken reason sees Vladimir Putin has his one true father, discussed making an Art Of The Deal with Russia that involved letting Robert Mueller interrogate the Russian spies who hacked America in 2016 (with Russian supervision, of course, in Russia) in exchange for sending Putin whichever American citizens hurt Putin's poor fragile butthurt pansy-ass feelings the past several years. One of Putin's targets is Michael McFaul, the former ambassador to Russia, whom Putin just hates. Hillary Clinton isn't on the official list yet, but give it a few weeks.

On Wednesday, Sarah Huckabee Sanders looked at reporters and told them Trump's people were considering the idea, but hadn't decided yet, because it's so hard for the Trump administration to decide how many treasons to do per week.

But hooray! The White House has decided that, after literally every American with a patriotic bone in his or her body said, "THE FUCK YOU SAY," they will not send Americans to Putin's gulag after all. The Washington Post reports:

The White House announced Trump's opposition Thursday as the Senate prepared to vote on a resolution telling the president not to honor Putin's request, which would have exposed former U.S. ambassador Michael McFaul, among others, to Russian questioning.

"It is a proposal that was made in sincerity by President Putin, but President Trump disagrees with it," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.

Oh my fucking Lord, Shuckabee, did you really type that Putin's offer was "sincere," or did Donald grab the statement after you finished with it and add those words in illiterate Sharpie in the margins, along with "DOES NOT MEAN PUTIN IS NOT MY BEST FRIEND" and "NO COLLUSION"?

By the way, that resolution passed the Senate with flying colors:

WOMP WOMP, Trump! Sorry American freedom and democracy stepped all over your dick again! Guarantee it's gonna happen again! Go fuck yourself! Enjoy the 48 Big Macs you have for dinner tonight! Don't talk directly into the soccer ball Putin gave you, 'less you want it to talk back to you in Russian!

OK post over.
