Must See – They Believed The End Times Were Imminent – The ATF-FBI Didn’t Like That, Retro Report

CS Commentary: Waco was months following Ruby Ridge. The Netflix series, Waco (see trailer below), based on two non-fiction books by participants on opposite sides, tells quite a different story than some of the conclusions stated in this video. Be sure to listen to the portion just after 11:00 – “all that is needed for real carnage to happen out there, is another Waco, a spark, something that will light the movement on fire.” Why was the FBI forced to back down in the Nevada range war of 2014? Well, they were forced to make some procedural changes after both Ruby Ridge and Waco in the early 1990’s. However, the primary impediment that prevented them from strong-arming Nevada ranchers? – Armed citizens organized in militias.

Waco, Official Trailer (video, left), Paramount/Netflix, Vodu Trailers

CS Commentary: Based on two non-fiction books by participants from opposite sides this is a fact-based, informative and riveting series based on the 1993 siege of Branch Davidians led by self-proclaimed Messiah David Koresh. Similar to watching a horrendous train wreck, once you start it you can’t take your eyes off of the events as they unfold. The writers make some concrete choices of events that others say remain shrouded. Its great writing presented by an equally great cast. Challenge: try not to be enraged and scared by the Federal government and the FBI. These are events – along with Ruby Ridge, which happened months before this – with which every American should be familiar. CS Grade: A (where A is the highest grade possible)
