    'Kill FBI on sight': Truth Social reveals the final days of the Cincinnati attacker (USA Today)

    On Tuesday, the account "@rickywshifferjr" posted a slew of items on Truth Social, the social media site founded by former President Donald Trump.

    "Be ready to open fire tomorrow. Take your weapon to work, have it in the trunk."

    "Well, I'll be dead-everyone, remember McConnell, Cheney, and Pence are the enemy."

    "Kill F.B.I. on sight."

    Just another demonstration of the uselessness of the Patriot Act and the surveillance state it had created when you can't stop terrorists like this posting their intentions in the open

        Oh, they absolutely stopped him, but not before he carried out his attack. We were lucky that he wasn't the most competent terrorist. They didn't stop him in Highland Park. The whole justification...

        Oh, they absolutely stopped him, but not before he carried out his attack. We were lucky that he wasn't the most competent terrorist. They didn't stop him in Highland Park. The whole justification for the Patriot Act and relinquishing our civil liberties is that it would catch and stop these attacks before they happen.

    A man by that name forwarned of the attack on Truth Social, the medium created by former President Donald Trump.
    "If you don't hear from me, it is true I tried attacking the F.B.I., and it'll mean either I was taken off the internet, the F.B.I. got me, or they sent the regular cops ... " the message said.

    Well shit…
