Schaeffer Cox and a Peacemakers Militia associate allegedly stored a cache of weapons in the Fairbanks Ice Park parking lot and were duped into buying inert grenades, according to two federal indictments made available today. (The indictments can be found here and here.)
The indictment on the weapons charge alludes to multiple “weapons caches.” At one time, weapons were stored at Barney’s North Pole area property. They moved them to a white trailer in the parking lot of the Fairbanks Ice Park on March 10, according to the document. (Storing the weapons in a trailer establishes their "white trash cred." You CANNOT be a member of the militia without white trash cred. Ask anybody.)
Cox and Barney allegedly had several meetings with a weapons dealer and wanted to buy 25 grenades at $70 each, according to the indictment. They were later told only eight grenades were available. They bought them, unaware the grenades were inert, according to the document.
They met with a weapons dealer? Hell there are hundreds of gun sellers in Alaska. It would be almost impossible to determine who they met with, and who sold them out to the Feds, based on only this information.
Unless of course there are other hints in the indictments.
b. From February 4 through February 6, 2011, on the direction of COX, VERNON and another person travelled to and stayed in Anchorage for the purpose of obtaining grenades.
g. On February 27, 2011, COX and BARNEY met with another person and requested to purchase, and ordered a pistol and silencer matched set, agreeing to pay$1,000 each. COX later agreed to trade a C-93 semi-automatic rifle, with a lower receiver, in lieu of the $1,000 cash purchase price. COX stated that the lower end receiver would, after a some modification, make the C-93 fully automatic.
h. On or about March 1, 2011, COX met with the same person that they ordered the pistol and silencers from and ordered 25 grenades. COX stated that the grenades he currently possessed had two-second fuses. COX asked if the grenades that were for sale were eight-second fuses and asked if he (COX) could get a volume discount on the price. COX stated if they could get the price down to $70 per grenade, he could buy as much as he wanted
So Cox traveled to Anchorage to make the purchases with this "person" who they believed could hook them up with grenades, silencers, and automatic weapons? Now isn't that interesting?
Isn't Drop Zone in Anchorage? I do believe that it is.
And isn't the owner of Drop Zone, William Fulton, the guy Joe Miller hired as "security" to rough up a local journalist?
And isn't William Fulton referred to as the "supply sergeant" because he is the go-to guy for militia members seeking weapons and supplies?
And isn't Fulton currently MIA?
So let's see what we have here. Schaeffer comes to Anchorage, where William Fulton, the militia "supply sergeant" has a shop, and purchases a bunch of deadly weapons in order to murder State Troopers, an IRS agent, and at least one Fairbanks judge.
It turns out that the guy selling the weapons is an FBI informant, and now William Fulton is nowhere to be found. (For those of you wondering how I know that the person who sold Schaeffer the weapons is the informant go back up and read the indictments again.)
Does that about sum it up?
Which brings me to the next part of the Newsminer story that I found particularly fascinating.
At a news conference in Anchorage Thursday afternoon, U.S. Attorney Karen Loeffler would not comment on whether more federal indictments are pending or whether there are any other alleged co-conspirators.
Hmm, now if there are "more federal indictments pending," and Fulton DOES turn out to be the snitch, just who do you think might be next?
I know what you are thinking, "Gryphen are the people involved in the Alaska Militia's the dumbest human beings on the planet?" Well, yes and no.
They are indeed too stupid to be allowed to play with pointy scissors, much less things that go boom, but it is NOT because they are Alaskans.
Here, perhaps this video will help to explain just what kind of simple son-of-a-bitch becomes a militia member.
NO, that is NOT a parody. They were completely serious.
Remember kids, when you have blinded yourself with the smoke bomb that you dropped for effect, and find yourself stumbling through the woods like an eighty year old Alzheimer's patient, don't worry about going back for a reshoot, all you have to add to the video in order to still make it seem cool is an obnoxious heavy metal soundtrack. There all fixed!
So are the Alaska Militia members the stupidest people on the planet? You betcha! But sadly they are also not alone.
