The FBI labeled a veteran led organization as a domestic terrorist group, according to another whistleblower who revealed the information to the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee. This information comes as FBI Director Christopher Wray continues to stone-wall members of Congress regarding numerous whistleblower disclosures that FBI officials are pressuring agents to reclassify questionable cases the bureau is investigating as ‘domestic terrorism,’ according to a letter released by the Republican ranking member with the House Judiciary late Wednesday night.
The letter sent to Wray from House Judiciary Committee Ranking member Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, warns the bureau’s alleged designation of some Americans and organizations as possible domestic terrorists for simply being patriotic, is unacceptable and that questions regarding the use of this designation must be answered.
Jordan told me late Wednesday night that the “latest whistleblower disclosure shows us that if you own a gun, if you fly the American flag, if you express doubt about big government, then you too could be labeled a domestic terrorist. That’s scary.”
Jordan is demanding that Wray turn over “all documents and communications referring or relating to the FBI’s Domestic Terrorism Symbols Guide on Militia Violent Extremism, for the period of January I. 2020, to the present. He is also demanding that the FBI provide “a full and complete explanation as to way the FBIs Domestic Terrorism Strategic Unit did not include symbols, images, phrases, events, and individuals about left-wing violent extremism of the FBI’s Domestic Terrorism Symbols Guide.”
Jordan said Wray must “provide this information as soon as possible, but no later than 5:00 p.m. on
September 28, 2022.”

On August 2, 2022, a media organization obtained a copy, which new whistleblower
disclosures have authenticated, of the FBI’s “Domestic Terrorism Symbols Guide” on “Militia
Violent Extremists” (MVEs).”
“The FBI’s document included symbols like “2A” and states that ‘MVEs justify their existence with the Second Amendment, due to the mention of a ‘well regulated Militia,’ as well as the right to bear arms.’ The document also includes “commonly referenced historical imagery or quotes,” like the ‘Betsy Ross Flag’ and the ‘Gadsden Flag,’ as symbols of so-called terrorists,” the letter states.
The letter also reveals that the FBI has been investigating a veteran-led group. The document obtained by the committee includes a section labeled ‘symbols of militia networks some MVEs may self-identify with,’ and describes one group, called American Contingency, as “[mainstream media, nationwide, mostly online activity, low history of violence. American Contingency is a company founded by former U.S.
service member Mike Glover, who has publicly rejected the FBI’s accusations that he is a terrorist and has described American Contingency’s charitable work on behalf of communities devastated by natural disasters.”

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’
Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social, “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”
Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”
It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.
Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.
And the escalation of war is visible.
Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.
Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.
Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”
Morning. Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”
F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.
Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
