VT: Time to remember what ‘oathkeeper’ means…
Rhodes set up Oathkeepers primarily for serving police, FBI, and DHS officers….thousands joined and still belong to this day.
Oathkeepers….anti-Vaxx…all Wall Street-backed…
In case you hadn’t heard, Stewart Rhodes — who used to be a… firearms instructor 😂 — dropped a loaded gun in 1993, and shot himself in the eye.
In case anyone was curious as to why the coup failed… 🤡 https://t.co/H46lORyQbI

Raw Story: The estranged wife of Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes said he is a “complete sociopath” during a Friday interview on CNN.

CNN’s John Berman interviewed Tasha Adams one day after her husband was arrested on charges of seditious conspiracy for his alleged role in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Adams described fearing for her family and that she was happy he was arrested.
“So much relief,” Adams said.
“I knew I lived in fear he might show up here. But the — just setting that weight down and knowing we were safe and my kids were safe and my kids’ school doesn’t have to worry, that was a relief I didn’t know existed,” she explained.
'Complete sociopath': Stewart Rhodes' estranged wife warns he is a 'dangerous man' https://t.co/gfmp0NmVr8 He looks dangerous.

“So I understand you’re telling us you feel personally at risk from Stewart, but I wonder what danger you feel, what threat you feel he poses to the country,” Berman said.
“He’s a dangerous man,” Adams replied.
“He is very dangerous. He lives very much in his own head,” she explained. “He sees himself as a great leader, he almost has his own mythology of himself and I think he almost made it come true as seeing himself as some sort of figure in history and it sort of happened. He’s a complete sociopath, he does not feel empathy for anyone around him at all.”
Prosecutors allege that on January 1 and 2, 2021, Rhodes spent $5,000 on firearms and related equipment such as a scope, magazines, sights, ammunition, and gun-cleaning supplies.
On January 3, 2021, Rhodes left his hometown of Granbury, Texas, and began traveling to Washington, D.C. for the protests. On the way, Rhodes spent a further $6,000 on an AR-platform rifle and firearms equipment and attachments.
The 56-year-old also stopped off in Mississippi to spend $4,500 on further firearms equipment, including sights, mounts, and optic plate, a magazine, and various parts.
While allegedly plotting how to stop the certification of the election results on January 6, the Oath Keepers frequently discussed whether they should bring guns to D.C.
The group ultimately decided not to bring firearms due to D.C.’s laws prohibiting open carry at protests. Instead, Kenneth Harrelson—one of the 10 Oath Keeper members charged along with Rhodes—is alleged to have stored firearms at the Comfort Inn in Arlington, Virginia, as part of plans to initiate a “quick reaction force” if violence broke out on January 6…
That evening, Rhodes sent a message in a private Signal group chat saying: “Thousands of ticked off patriots spontaneously marched on the Capitol. You ain’t seen nothing yet.” Rhodes said that “patriots” storming the Capitol on January 6 was “NOTHING compared to what’s coming.”
According to prosecutors, Rhodes then spent the next few days buying more firearm equipment and gear.
On January 10, 2021, Rhodes spent approximately $6,000 more on items including sights, a scope, mounts, a gun grip, and a magazine pouch.
The next day, he spent over $1,500 on magazines and other items before spending nearly $7,000 on hundreds of rounds of ammunition, duffel bags, magazines, rifle scopes, and a gun light on January 12.
Between January 13 and 19, Rhodes spent $3,000 on further firearms items and equipment.
