The Posse Comitatus was a right-wing extremist group started by a neo-Nazi in Portland, Oregon with over two dozen chapters in the U.S., one being an 80-acre armed compound near Rulo, Nebraska that housed a doomsday prepper death-cult led by Michael Ryan. The Posse Comitatus supported Arthur Kirk’s fight against the tyranny of the banks and police. Posse Comitatus claimed the true intent of the country’s founders was to establish a Christian republic where the individual was sovereign, and that the Republic’s first duty was to promote, safeguard, and protect the Christian faith. They saw farmers as the victims of a Jewish-led, communist-supported conspiracy that had infiltrated the government. They thought the conspiracy would rob the farmer of his land through manipulation of land values, grain prices and credit. Once they controlled the land, Posse Comitatus thought it would control the food supply too. In Rulo, Michael Ryan proceeded over polygamist weddings, thefts of farm equipment, and carried out ritual torture, bestiality, and murder. He died in 2015 of natural causes while serving a commuted death row sentence for the grisly murders of a 5-year-old boy and 26-year-old man living on the farm. Michael Ryan was an embodiment of the white Sharia meme thirty years early.
In 2015, Donna Marie Kozak, a sovereign citizen living in the Omaha suburb of La Vista, Nebraska was convicted in federal court of tax evasion, tax fraud, and filing false liens on properties owned by a federal judge, U.S. district attorneys, IRS investigators, and for sending harassing messages to IRS agents. Kozak was essentially trolling federal agents in retaliation for her initial tax evasion arrest.
