Militia Organizer Threatens to Arrest Stabenow Over Iran Deal

Roll Call – by Hannah Hess

Capitol Police are investigating a man identifying himself as an “Oathkeeper” and an “American Patriot who has everything to lose” who has threatened to arrest Sen. Debbie Stabenow for treason because of her support for the Iran nuclear deal.

Jon Ritzheimer, the Arizona resident who reportedly attracted FBI attention when he organized an anti-Muslim protest rally and “draw Muhammad” cartoon contest at a Phoenix mosque, shared his plan to organize with fellow U.S. Marines in an open letter posted online Monday.  

“We are planning on arresting Senator Debbie Stabenow, who voted yes to the Iran Nuke Deal. She will be arrested for treason under Article 3 Section 3 of the Constitution,” states the letter. “We have chosen her as our first target due to our strong ties with the Michigan State Militia and their lax gun laws that will allow us to operate in a manner necessary for an operation like this.”

Ritzheimer, 31, claims that after successfully detaining the Michigan Democrat, he and his armed militia “will continue to move across the country and arrest everyone involved with the Iran Nuke Deal” including the president.

A Stabenow aide cited an office policy not to comment on security matters, when asked about the threats by CQ Roll Call.

“The US Capitol Police are aware and are working with local law enforcement in Michigan on the matter,” said Capt. Kimberly Schneider in an email inquiry about the threat.

Ritzheimer stated he has notified law enforcement about his intentions, and plans to cooperate with them “and try to keep this as smooth as possible so we don’t have another ‘Shot Heard Round The World’ situation.” He is also seeking donations for his mission.

  1. This guy’s a shill. You can tell by his behavior being centered around producing headlines rather than doing anything productive or sensible.

    I don’t care what you’re planning, or threatening, or whatever else you’re doing to get your name in the paper for use by the propaganda machine.

    We’re not in the entertainment business.

  2. This @$$#0LE also believes the “official govt account” of 9/11.

    Complete bs and 100% controlled opposition.

    He’s there for the traveling sideshow. He’s trying to suck money out of gullible patriots.

    Oh my, AND an Oath breaker? What a mensch.


  3. “We have chosen her as our first target due to our strong ties with the (Michigan State Militia and their lax gun laws) that will allow us to operate in a manner necessary for an operation like this.”

    This part of his statement tells me this is BS…..I hope Michigan Militia chimes in on this…..

    This smells big time….why would a Militia member refer to “Lax Gun Laws”..???

  4. A person claiming to be an “Oathbreaker” and a patriot. Mistake #1.

    Then this same person is fighting against Muslims rather than the Zionist Jews and claims to be a militia member. Mistake #2.

    Finally he talks about “Lax gun laws” and he calls himself a patriot and then says he will work with the police to arrest these people all the way up to the president if he has to. Mistake #3 as it:

    1. Makes him controlled opposition.

    2. Makes the militia look like the enemy and further divides rather than unites We the People against our REAL enemy, the Zionist Jews and their puppets who have taken control of our government.
