In a video published online last month, Georgia militia leader Chris Hill and Eric Braden of the Texas-based Southern Patriot Council discussed the overthrow of the United States government, by violence if necessary.

“It’s all or nothing,” Hill said. “Revolution is at hand.”

It’s not clear who heard the call. The video was published on the Toronto-based video sharing site Rumble where it garnered just a few dozen views. Hill also promoted it on Gab, a social media site popular with some far-right figures, but only 27 people follow his account there.

It’s a precipitous fall from a year ago when Hill had a Facebook account with tens of thousands of followers, along with a separate, private Facebook group where he and members of his III% Security Force militia could meet in relative secrecy.

Three Lansing residents have been convicted of conspiring to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. United States Attorney Andrew Birge announced Wednesday that Muse Muse, Mohamud Muse, and Mohamud Haji had been conspiring to support the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, more commonly referred to as “ISIS”.

Both Muse Muse and Mohamud Muse had already been convicted, and Wednesday the third and final suspect, Mohamud Haji, pleaded guilty to the federal crime.

On January 21, 2019, special agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and members of its Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested defendant Muse Muse at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport in Grand Rapids, Michigan, after he checked in for a flight to the first of a series of destinations on his way to Mogadishu, Somalia, with the goal of joining ISIS. Shortly thereafter, his brother Mohamud Muse and cousin Mohamed Haji were arrested as co-conspirators.

Alex Lapcevich was sitting in his car Sunday evening when he saw the murder weapon fly by.

A modified two-door Dodge Ram pickup truck zoomed past him at the corner of Hyde Park Road and Oxford Street. Lapcevich guessed the truck was going 150 kilometres per hour down the street. He was confused there were no police cars in pursuit — figuring that someone driving that erratically would have to be being chased.

Just up the road, Nathan Brooks said he and his 11-year old daughter saw the same truck — but all Brooks caught was a dark blur rush past him. He called police right after to report a reckless driver.

Italian police announced on Monday they had broken up an online neo-Nazi group dedicated to antisemitic and racist propaganda that encouraged young people to carry out extreme acts of violence against Jews and foreigners.

Italian postal police and Carabinieri paramilitary police said individuals aged between 26 and 62 were allegedly involved in the group.

Twelve people were present on Facebook and Russian social network VK under the name, "Ordine Ario Romano," which is believed to be a reference to the racist writings of fascist author Julius Evola, a Carabinieri police statement said.

The group's social media postings were "inspired by Nazi, antisemitic and Holocaust-denial ideologies, as well as by anti-Jewish conspiracy theories," the statement added.
