A Michigan jury convited two men of conspiring to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in 2020 on Tuesday.
The two men, Adam Fox and Barry Croft Jr. were also found guilty of conspiring to obtain a weapon of mass destruction such as a bomb to destroy a bridge near the governor’s vacation home. The two men were on trial for the second time after a jury in April could not reach a unanimous verdict. That trial also found two other men not guilty in the alleged attempted kidnapping.
Prosecutors made their closing arguments on Monday, with Assistant US Attorney Nils Kessler saying, “These defendants were outside a woman’s house in the middle of the night with night-vision goggles and guns and a plan to kidnap her. They made a real bomb. That’s far enough, isn’t it?”
The defense argued that the FBI entrapped the men in the plot. “The government picked what it knew would be a sensational charge: conspiracy to kidnap the governor,” the attorneys wrote.
Assistant US Attorney Nils Kessler urged jurors to focus on what the two men had allegedly said prior to the introduction of undercover FBI agents and information inside the group that summer, rejecting the argument […]

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
