The seditious conspiracy charges against Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and 10 other members of his paramilitary gang prompt an examination of Rhodes’s redefinition of politics in founding the group, particularly how he defines politics as a potentially armed struggle against a domestic political enemy, an ideologically defined "other" that would have been recognizable to Frankfurt School political scientist and critic of Nazism Franz Neumann. Other topics include the latest news from the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack, a "Presidential Findings" memo that appears to outline a plot to unconstitutionally use the military to install Trump as a dictator, an information request issued to Ivanka Trump, and much more. https://january6th.house.gov/sites/democrats.january6th.house.gov/files/2022-1-20.BGT%20Letter%20to%20Ivanka%20Trump%20-%20Cover%20Letter%20and%20Enclosures_Redacted%202.pdf https://www.politico.com/f/?id=0000017e-920d-d65f-a77e-fbad182f0000 https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/21190289-rhodesdetrlgmjedtx012622?s=01 https://youtu.be/SqGRqqY7NdY
