WRAM - We dedicate our hearts,minds and bodies to protecting our great Republic!
This is typical confusion regarding what WE and Militia stand for when it comes to supporting AND defending the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.
Unless we solve the issues within, the enemy wil use them as a weakness to exploit and smear.
The FBI arrested a Queens man with ties to anti-government extremism Tuesday night for allegedly threatening to kill employees at a Pennsylvania bank, law enforcement sources said.
Law enforcement sources say Michael Chung faxed a threatening letter to a Sovereign Bank branch in Pottsville. In the letter, he cited the Second Amendment and threatened to kill employees of the bank, law enforcement sources said.
The letter read, in part, "The 2nd Amendment to the National Constitution authorizes the use of deadly force to protect my interests as a national citizen. I believe I have a basis to act in that manner."
Chung, 52, had a loan with the bank that may have been preventing him from selling his Bayside home, law enforcement sources said. There may be a lien on his house.
A law enforcement official says Chung has a shotgun registered in his name. It's not clear if the weapon has been recovered.
A law enforcement official said Chung is part of the sovereign citizen movement, a loose grouping of people who don't believe in following government authority and paying taxes. The FBI has long considered sovereign citizens a domestic terror threat and monitors the movement.
Chung is scheduled to be arraigned later Wednesday in federal court in Brooklyn. It wasn't immediately known if he had an attorney.

‘Sovereign’ citizens arrested after SWAT team standoff
Meghann M. CuniffThe Spokesman-Review
Two men part of a growing “sovereign” movement that questions government authority were arrested in Otis Orchards today after a SWAT team standoff.
The men had pulled over at North Starr Road and East Kildea Road for deputies investigating invalid license plates on their truck but refused to exit the vehicle, said Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich.
The truck was covered in sovereign citizen signs, including one that said it was a “noncommercial private vehicle” and “no trespassing.”
Knezovich joined SWAT team negotiators because self-proclaimed sovereigns typically recognize the sheriff as the highest law enforcement authority, he said.
“They were, thank goodness, nonviolent and it ended very well,” Knezovich said.
The men agreed to surrender but still refused to exit the vehicle. SWAT officers took them into custody with “minimal force,” Knezovich said, though they had to be cut from their seat belts.
The standoff started about 2 p.m. and ended about 4:30 p.m. The men’s names were not immediately available.
