Coast Guard Lt. Charged with Planning Terror Attack Targeting Dems, Journalists, Others

Coast Guard Lt. Charged with Planning Terror Attack Targeting Dems, Journalists, Others

Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson allegedly intended ‘to Murder Innocent Civilians on a Scale Rarely Seen in’ America

Authorities arrested US Coast Guard Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson “last week on weapons and drugs charges.” The motion for pretrial detention revealed horrific details like how intended “to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country.”

The federal prosecutors described him as a “domestic terrorist” and “white nationalist” who kept a hit list of journalists and Democratic lawmakers.

From Yahoo! News:

Per the court document, Hasson has been serving as an acquisitions officer at the Coast Guard’s D.C. headquarters since June of 2016. Though he has not received any tactical, weapons or explosives-related training in this position, the prosecutors note that Hasson served in the Marine Corps from 1988 to 1993, followed by approximately two years of active duty with the Army National Guard. When authorities raided his residence earlier this month, they found 15 firearms and over 1,000 rounds of mixed ammunition, the document says. His detention hearing is scheduled for Thursday in Greenbelt, Md. According to a separate court filing signed Feb. 15, Hasson will be represented by a public defender.

Prosecutors stated that since 2017 Hasson has “routinely perused” the manifesto of Anders Behring Breivik, a far-right Norwegian terrorist who killed 77 people in two attacks in 2011. Hasson followed the instructions of the document, which tell “a prospective assailant to amass appropriate firearms, food, disguises, and survival supplies.”

Hasson listed his targets on January 17. He included “Sen blumen jew,” which probably meant Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and “poca warren,” which probably meant Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

Yahoo! News listed more:

There are also references to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a long list of additional Democratic senators, including Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., Cory Booker, D-N.J., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Tim Kaine, D-Va. The list also includes likely references to a number of House members (Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.), television hosts (Joe Scarborough and Chris Hayes of MSNBC, Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo of CNN), former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas and the Democratic Socialists of America.

Hasson also googled “what if trump illegally impeached” and “civil war if trump impeached.” He looked up places to see lawmakers in DC and tried to find their addresses. He attempted to look up “pro-Russian, neo-fascist and neo-Nazi literature.”

Recovered emails offered a chilling picture of Hasson’s thinking. From Fox News:

The filing said Hasson had “espoused extremist views for years” and quoted a letter he drafted to “a known American neo-Nazi leader” in September 2017, nearly two months after the deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. In the letter, Hasson described himself as “a long time White Nationalist, having been a skinhead 30 plus years ago before my time in the military.” Hasson added that “I fully support the idea of a white homeland … We need a white homeland as Europe seems lost. How long we can hold out there and prevent n—–ization of the Northwest until whites wake up on their own or are forcibly made to make a decision whether to roll over and die and to stand up remains to be seen.”

Three months earlier, prosecutors say Hasson drafted an email to “friends” in which he said he was “dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on the earth. I think a plague would be most successful but how do I acquire the needed/ Spanish flu, botulism, anthrax not sure yet but will find something.”

In the same email, Hasson mused: “Start with biological attacks followed by attack [sic] on food supply … Two pronged [sic] attack seems it might be more successful. Institute a bombing/sniper campaign.”

Hasson worked as “an acquisitions officer for the National Security Cutter Acquisition Program who had been assigned to the Coast Guard’s headquarters in Washington since June 2016.” Before that he “served in the Marine Corps and the Army National Guard.”

As I’ve said before…

    Ok I am confused. The title says he was charged with planning a terror attack. But the document only seems to indicate weapons and drug charges.

    Which is it?

“When authorities raided his residence earlier this month, they found 15 firearms and over 1,000 rounds of mixed ammunition …”

(laughs) Oh, is that all?

    Pardon me for being a cynic, but after the revelations of high level FBI corruption one cannot help but wonder if the timing is designed to deflect from the Smollett affair.

      murkyv in reply to objection. | February 21, 2019 at 3:20 pm

      That, and the fact that Democrats and the FBI have had the worst week in the media that they’ve had in months

      alaskabob in reply to objection. | February 21, 2019 at 5:10 pm

      That amount of “firepower” would be laughed at in parts of the country. Nice to include three 22 LR rifles in the mix. All of the weapons charges are based on possession of the Tramadol.

      Years ago courts threw out “weapons charges” if the weapons were not used in a crime but solely on the premises. While I have no argument with potential intent this is the usual over the top display. This is not The Matrix.

    murkyv in reply to TomKey68. | February 21, 2019 at 3:21 pm

    1000 rounds?

    I have that much for each caliber gun I own, except for the 4-5000 rounds of .22’s I keep on hand

    gourdhead in reply to TomKey68. | February 22, 2019 at 12:29 pm

    That’s what I was thinking. That’s all he had? He’s not even in the game.

Did he send any letters to Jussie Smollett?

Horrors, fifteen guns. I’ve bought far more than that at a single auction. Sure, they were oldies, but they’re real guns which shoot real bullets and have their own trails of legal paperwork. I have almost that many firearms in my shop right now in various stages of construction (don’t get excited, they’re all entirely legal, and they’re not for sale, so don’t ask.)

Seriously, this is kid stuff—perfectly legal kid stuff. Ooooh, he attempted to look up “pro-Russian, neo-fascist and neo-Nazi literature”. That means he has a library card. (Yep, that’s trouble, fer sure!) This is no “man of action”—this is a guy living a life of excuses, stockpiling pain-relief opiods with some half-assed idea that they’ll artificially give him super rocket powers and get him out of his doldrums.

I don’t think I know exactly what a “white nationalist” is. Is it something criminal? He’s hardly a “domestic terrorist” is he hasn’t terrorized anybody. And sending himself a weird letter is not a strong indication of a conspiracy. It takes more than one person to make a proper conspiracy.

It sounds like “authorities” are wasting some perfectly good salaries chasing after this twaddle. And that’s a crime.

    He’s earned a good talking to and an inconvenience- which part of what he said goes from private venting to a crime?

    We hear leftists shout this crap all day long and no one is rounding them up.

I’m glad others like murkyv have posted. My 89 year old dad has over 1000 rounds. this really burns me up every time I hear crap like that reported. Anyone who goes to a public range for an hour or so goes through 100-200 rounds easily. A thousand rounds is 5-7 trips to the range (or 10 if you are on a budget).

I’m not going to guess how many I have, but I reload because I find the hobby relaxing. It’s easier than sailing and you don’t need a trailer or have to pay mooring fees.

Like the Jessie Smellit nonsense, the “Oooh, a thousand rounds!” bad press is bad for everyone. It’s another badge of shame pinned onto law abiding target shooters.

This guy sounds like a real wack-job and I’m glad he was rooted out. Slap him in irons and throw away the key. But boxes of ammo don’t signify anything. Lee Harvey Oswald didn’t need 1000 rounds. It’s not the quantity but what you do with the ones you chamber. Argh!!

    Anchovy in reply to WestRock. | February 21, 2019 at 4:51 pm

    It is less expensive to buy ammo by the bulk. Then again the idea of saving money would never occur to anyone in government.

      alaskabob in reply to Anchovy. | February 21, 2019 at 5:25 pm

      Oregon lawmakers want 5-round mag as max and can only purchase 20 rounds of ammo per month.

        Arminius in reply to alaskabob. | February 21, 2019 at 6:09 pm

        Seriously? One box of shotgun ammo is 25 rounds. Which is what you expend in one round of skeet shooting.

        So what are the geniuses running Oregon trying to achieve. When I was stationed in Japan I routinely went through 100 rounds of ammo in a single day as the only shooting I got to do was at the NAF Atsugi skeet range. In case there are any democrats reading this let me help with the math. That’s 400 rounds a month.

        And, seriously, how are you supposed to buy only 20 rounds of shotgun ammo when it all (except for buckshot and slug rounds, which in case there are any leftards reading this are useless for shotgun shooting sports and illegal in case anyone is stupid enough to even try) comes in boxes containing 25 rounds. What’s the gun store owner supposed to do? Reach into the box and pull out five rounds before selling the depleted box to you?

        This is insane, but not surprising as it’s what I’ve grown to expect from the nutcases running Kali, Oregon, Washington, Illinois, and New York to name a few. They make it illegal to buy products that actually exist, and you can only legally buy products that don’t exist. Like the magazine restrictions in New York. Yes, I know I can get 7 round magazines for my 1911 but not for any other pistol in the inventory. Nobody makes 7 round magazines.

        Of course, that’s no doubt the plan.

        I am so glad I live in Texas. And don’t worry, Texas, I didn’t bring the disease of liberalism with me.

          alaskabob in reply to Arminius. | February 21, 2019 at 6:45 pm

          A judge in Cali ruled that the State’s law prohibiting sale of handguns without firing pin microstamp is legal even though the technology doesn’t work. Setting a legal standard that cannot be obtained is legal. This will end all new handgun sales in the next few years.. gee… now was that planned or what? It’s all legal!

        Also, Eurasia is using seven-bullet magazines on the Eastasia front.
        Eurasia has always used only seven-bullet magazines.

    tom_swift in reply to WestRock. | February 21, 2019 at 5:28 pm

    Slap him in irons and throw away the key.

    You don’t think anything like, say, an actual crime should be involved?

    If the local police want to keep a file folder with the neighbor’s complaints somewhere where they won’t lose it, I don’t see a big problem with that. But I’m not seeing any justification at all for anything more than that. (Maybe the drugs; I know a lot more about ammo than I do about controlled drugs.)

OK so the FBI finally did it’s job. Pat on the back to the agents that are protecting us and not caught up in the Coup against the President. So how exactly did they catch this guy, email intercept, email buddy informed the feds, pulled out a stale case file and said he let’s grab this guy to change the narrative?

All I see are a lot of disturbed ramblings from a guy who needs his meds adjusted. Change the object of hate and this is the average diary entry for every leftist.

Are we rounding people up on that basis now?

15 firearms and 1000 rounds of ammo is a lot? Holding views that upset snowflakes is criminal? In the snowflake world, most anything is now possible.

When do they arrest Antifa thugs on terrorism charges?

How did they ‘catch’ this guy? Had to be informants or spying on his browsing history. What are they going to be prosecuting him for? Keeping a list of people he thinks should be shot in the event of civil war? Too thin so far.

A lot of guns and not much ammo. Weird nicknames for politicians. White nationalist? Dreaming of killing nearly everyone!

I think the judge will order a mental health eval for him and there’s a better than even chance he’ll flunk.

    Arminius in reply to irv. | February 21, 2019 at 6:43 pm

    Actually, that’s not a lot of firearms at all. I have friends in Alaska and when I hunt Alaska I’ve always used a .338 Winchester Magnum. There’s an old saying among hunters in India (professionals were called shikaris). When you head out for rabbits, be prepared for tigers. The Alaskan analog would be when you set out for deer or caribou, be prepared for bears. Really, really big bears.

    But I live in Texas and I’d feel really, really stupid destroying an excessive amount of meat (it’s called “blood shot”) on the small deer with the .338 here. Generally I used a .270 Winchester, which is still a lot of gun for Texas. For small game I’d need a 22 rimfire. But I’ve also hunted Africa. The .338 works great on antelope (plains game) but nothing larger. By working great I mean a bullet delivered from a .338 might eventually kill a dangerous animal, but probably not before the animal has ground you into the dirt. Also, if you have one of something you really have none of something. By that I mean given the restrictive gun laws in many countries of Africa if something goes wrong with the one rifle you brought you’ll probably be SOL as you won’t be able to legally borrow a rifle.

    Hurray for universal background checks!

    So you really need two rifles just in case. I favor the Kimber Talkeetna in .375 H&H and the CZ550 Safari Magnum in .416 Rigby. So now I’m up to five rifles, and they’re only the hunting rifles. I haven’t covered competition rifles, hunting and competition shotguns, or handguns.

    No, 15 isn’t a lot. It would be like demanding golfers play only with putters and drivers. No other irons or woods.

I suppose he is like the Maga-Bomber, not quite right in the head and relevant only because authorities led him to be a proof positive for an agenda 😉

This is a pretty straight forward case, which is seen every single week in this country.

From my understanding pf the case, Hasson was using a government computer, at his government office, to access suspicious websites and locations. When the Coast Guard Investigative Service investigated, they obtained information that Hasson had used the internet to purchase some Tramadol, possibly from Mexico. They searched his work station and found what turned out to be Tramadol. This led to his arrest on one count of possession and another count of possession of a firearm by a drug user. So far, not a big deal.

A subsequent search apparently did not turn up any hard evidence that Hasson was actually planning to carry out any immediate attack against anyone, merely indulging in mental wish fulfillment. But, invoking the Minority Report future viewing federal law enforcement mechanism, they argued that Hasson, now stripped of his entire arsenal, is a horrific threat to society and should be held, without bond, until the FBI can build a case against him for domestic terrorism.

Though Hasson may well be dangerous, in the long run, there is no evidence that he represents an immediate threat to anyone. I’m afraid that this is hyped to make the DOJ look good.

    spot on Mac…that’s what I see.

    paracelsus in reply to Mac45. | February 22, 2019 at 5:59 pm

    “Tramadol” – Ya gotta be kiddin’ me.
    The manufacturer did a hype campaign to the endodontic (root canal) community; Ibuprofen relieved pain far better (and with no constipation)
    The druggers ask for Percodan: sometimes Vicodin, and definitely not Tramadol.
    Mr. Hasson could get higher on two beers.

Maybe this is very boring and tedious of me to say, but I give this guy the same look I give to any other terror defendant. If he’s guilty, punish him appropriately (i.e. harshly) and be done with it. I have no sympathy for him whatsoever.

Thanks for reporting details. I’d been seeing people beaten over the head with this case in the sense of “How are you not reporting this instead of poor little Jussie!?!!!” about twenty times in the last day and genuinely wondered what all the fuss is about.

Planning, not Planned. Also, the Choice was hypothetical.

This case is a big Nothing Burger. Where’s a crime? Conspiring with yourself via a draft of a letter — not sent — mailed to yourself? Conspiracy? Breathing together? Just breathing, it would seem. And No-No Wrongthoughts? Trying to make a felony out of ordering a drug from Mexico, while exercising your 2nd amendment right to own a small number of firearms?

This is a PR effort by corrupt FBI, alphabet swamp agencies, and wet-behind-the-ears prosecutors trying desperately to make a name for themselves while distracting people from the latest hate-crime hoax. Disgusting!

I wonder if they’re trying to make a big deal of this total nothingburger so that when DJT doesn’t tweet anything critical about it, they can whine that he supports “white nationalists” (or whatever the hell they claim this mildly unbalanced individual seems to be).

Not much seems to happen in today’s America unless somebody, somewhere fantasizes that it can be used to damage the President.

The .338 works great on antelope (plains game) but nothing larger. By working great I mean a bullet delivered from a .338 might eventually kill a dangerous animal, but probably not before the animal has ground you into the dirt.


in several african countries .375 is the minimum allowed by law for dangerous game–a true ” dangerous game ” rifle has one principal purpose–stopping a charging animal–for quite a while, ” dangerous game ” weapons have been considered to be at least .45 calibre or above–personally, favor either a .458 Win Mag or a .505 Gibbs

    alaskabob in reply to texansamurai. | February 22, 2019 at 12:26 am

    Classic “stopping” calibers….40 cal and larger, 400 grains or larger, 2150 fps or greater.

    One shot stop of Cape with 458 Lott, 450 grains Barnes Banded Solid at 2450 fps. Low end 450/400….top end…Ortho and Neuro consults.

    338 WM can kill a Cape, etc….but not enough frontal area to shock and stop. 375 H&H with 350 to 375 grain heavy very good on Cape but still not a stopper.

    505 Gibbs a strong contender. I’ll stick to my 470 NE.

Not word one about anything he DID. What did he DO? I don’t think wanting to do anything is a crime. If owning guns, having ammo, and wanting to shoot someone is a crime – there’s not room, even in our jails. And then, what about wanting to get a gun and ammo and shoot someone?

Maybe he needs to be locked up for being dangerously mentally ill, but as it is . . . we have a bunch of smoke and no fire.

Now that the Jussie Smollett HOAX failed to divert attention, QUICK WHAT’S THAT BRIGHT SHINEY OBJECT OVER THERE?


They just had to get another diversion going while ole Andy McCabe is out there on the Fake News Channels admitting treason and like a rolling canon, doing damage to Rat Rod Rosenstein, Comey, and others of what is THE BIGGEST SCANDAL IN OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND COUNTRY EVER, AND THAT MAKES WATERGATE LOOK LIKE AN AVERAGE DAY IN THE BIGGEST ONGOING CRIME SCENE IN AMERICA: THE U.S. CONGRESS.

The New World Order open-border-loving Marxist tyrannical-elite-owned media continues to bash Whites whenever and in any way they can. Divide and conquer. Will 5,000 Somali Moslem’s be brought in at taxpayers’ expense (for many generations of offspring) to assuage the “White guilt” the leftists possess whenever a White does anything against the politically correct agenda?

OK, sounds like a possibly bad guy, but where’s the mention of an actual conspiracy or credible threat to commit a crime? 15 firearms and 1000+ rounds is “proof” of being one of millions of similarly equipped collectors/owners/hunters/casual shooters.

Maybe they plan on convicting him of “thought crimes”

“Over 1000 rounds” is supposed to be proof of what?

The minimum standard for a prepper is 1000 round per gun.

Even if he had 2000 rounds for 15 guns, he would be woefully unprepared.

Mr. Hassan appears to have a drug addiction. Do you think that the left will categorize Hassan’s addiction as a “disease”, or just a right-wing obsession?

I think Mr. Hassan could have done himself a big favor by studying U.S. Political History, and not spent so much time on conspiracy theories. He fell for the left-wing media’s agenda of “Keep Them Afraid and Angry” news reporting.

I wish his family well.

The same rancid odour pervaded the air when Jussie ‘came out’ a second time.

Two items of note struck me about this story. First, is that based on this person’s writings “dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on the earth” it appears he is mentally deranged more than being a white nationalist since he’d be killing whites too, by killing every last person on earth. Second, looking at the weapons pictured, I didn’t see any weapons that were not legal to buy or posses in MD. Also the detailed listing of items purchased didn’t seem outrageous for most firearms collectors or enthusiasts.
