Editor’s note: Guardians of the Free Republic is a non-violent organization that calls for an end to home foreclosures, an end to tax prosecutions, restoration of de jure governance, restoration of common law, an end to automobile ownership through DMV registrations, and return military and law enforcement institutions to proper and lawful de jure sovereign authority. No wonder the FBI and Homeland Security consider them “extremist.”
The FBI confirmed today that it sent an advisory to Nevada and other states notifying authorities of an extremist group’s demand to remove governors from office, but said federal officials did not believe the group was an “immediate or credible” threat of violence.
Stricter security measures were put in place in the Nevada Capitol this week after police received a letter addressed to Gov. Jim Gibbons, telling him to resign his office. It made a reference to “commandeering” the office if Gibbons declined.
“The FBI and Department of Homeland Security are not aware of any immediate or credible threats of violence as part of this group’s plan,” said FBI special agent Joseph Dickey.
