Something happened In December 2020, that was investigated by local authorities and a joint terrorism task force (JTTF), which led to the guilty plea of one person in July 2021, and the conviction of another person on September 9, 2021.
In December of 2020, antifa “activists” Samantha Frances Brooks and Ellen Brennan Reiche were indicted on terror charges after placing disrupting cables (or shunts) on train tracks near Bellingham, Washington. This caused a train carrying hazardous materials to decouple from some of its cars, which, according to authorities, could have led to a dangerous derailment in a residential area.
It was a terror attack by two people associated with the Antifa group 'It's Going Down," who then published a letter recommending that others take the same action.
This turned an act of terror into a plot to carry out more terror attacks.
Samantha Frances Brooks and Ellen Brennan Reiche were each indicted with one count of terrorist attacks and other violence against a railroad carrier Dec. 9, 2020, in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington in Seattle.
More from the AP:
Brooks pleaded guilty July 9, and a federal judge accepted her plea last week, The Bellingham Herald reported. In her plea agreement, Brooks admitted to helping another person install a shunt on the railroad tracks and that they acted with “the intent to cause BNSF trains to delay operating,” according to federal court records.
She faces a maximum prison sentence of up to 20 years, a fine of $250,000 and up to three years probation, according to the court records. The government agreed to recommend a sentence at the low end of the sentencing range as part of her plea agreement, according to federal court records.
The heftiness of the possible sentence described above, makes it crystal clear that the conviction of the second Antifa terrorist is newsworthy, yet ignored by the major television news networks.
NewsBusters highlights Reiche's previous work with the Washington State Democrats, and speculates perhaps that is one reason for the media blackout.
So the question here is whether those reading this have heard of the September 9, 2021 conviction of Reiche from the MSM, who is supposedly charged with keeping the public informed?
Most Independent Media readers do not hold much stock in what the MSM reports and always takes their claims with a grain of salt, so to speak, but it is almost impossible to be a news junkie without at least knowing what the MSM is claiming on any particular day.
JOURNALISTS UNDER ATTACK BY ANTIFA
As the MSM ignored the train attacks and the recent conviction of an Antifa terrorist, they also continue to downplay or ignore other recent events and violence that follows Antifa where ever they go.
A NewsWeek opinion writer addresses attacks against journalists trying to cover their violence protesters and/or counter-protests.
Note - Since the "news" divisions hesitate cover Antifa terrorism, I guess it is left to the opinion writers.
One person from each side was battered or stabbed repeatedly with unidentified metal objects. Several were bruised, others bloodied.
A Hispanic man in an American flag hat and handkerchief was rushed to emergency surgery in critical condition with a single knife insertion and withdrawal to the upper chest. A tall Caucasian figure with blond hair—a regular among the SoCal Antifa Black Bloc this summer—was arrested for attack on September 1st.
An Independent photojournalist was attacked as well.
Independent photojournalist Maranie Staab was assaulted in Portland on August 22, after an Antifa Black Bloc counter action against Proud Boys launched a street battle. Staab was singled out for misogynist epithets and maced after her phone was knocked away. Paint and chemicals were deployed from a large metallic fire extinguisher sprayer, and projectiles (including explosives) were thrown at press. Two banner-carrying Evangelical protesters were also doused.
Much of the "antifascist" Twitter narrative about this incident, as well as soft-dox naming of right-wing opponents, originated in Los Angeles. A self-identifying Antifa "research" account, which has advocated for neutralizing press cameras, began cherry picking videos to try to portray Staab as the aggressor.
Video shows the Black Bloc hurling a projectile and knocking Staab's phone into the street. They attack another female reporter before Staab says, "Don't touch her." Staab says she stood her ground. Critics blame her for getting too close to the Black Bloc.
Blame the victim. That is Antifa's pattern of behavior. Show up at any protest you disagree with, get violent, attack men, women and children, law enforcement and Independent journalists, and then blame the original protesters who were being peaceful right up until they were attacked by Antifa.

ANTIFA TEACHER CAUGHT IN STING VIDEO
His name is Gabriel Gipe, and he is a California teacher who was recorded by an undercover reporter for Project Veritas.
He boasts turning his students into "revolutionaries," and has an Antifa flag hanging in his classroom.
Below we see the type of people, and yes I use that term loosely, that are teaching our nation's children.
Do we still need more reasons to encourage parents homeschool their children?
KEEP YOUR CHILDREN SAFE FROM ANTIFA 'EDUCATORS'
Speaking of: Axios recently reported that "The number of U.S. kids who are homeschooled has nearly doubled during the pandemic."
Some key points from the left-leaning Axios that reports this and calls it hitting "critical mass," while many of us against the indoctrination of children in our public educational system, would call it smart.
• Now the total number of homeschooled kids sits at about 5 million. According to census data, more than 11% of U.S. households are now homeschooling.
• And it's not just white families who are moving to homeschooling: 9.7% of white families with kids have pulled out of traditional education, as have 12.1% of Hispanic families, 8.8% of Asian families and 16.1% of Black families.
The reasons given should be a huge wake up call to schools regarding the type of people they are allowing to influence our children.
• For the first time in modern history, parents got a chance to observe their children's education up close, at home.
BOOM! We finally found something positive that came out of the pandemic lockdowns.
Parents have finally gotten a chance to see who is teaching the children and most importantly what they are teaching them.
Keep your children away from so-called educators "teaching" your children to be revolutionaries.
Once again the media has shown itself to be part of the Antifa "family."
When the MSM is not defending them, and/or protecting them, they simply bury any unfavorable news about them, unless they can find a way to blame the protesters that were peaceful until Antifa attacked.
Democrats claim protesters on January 6 were "terrorists" and "insurrectionist," yet less people were injured, less died, from that one date than any event Antifa is part of.
The videos below come from Washington State, Portland, Oregon, and Los Angeles California, just three cities/states run by liberals, that allow Antifa to run rampant and terrorize their citizenry.
