“Guardians of the Republic” is a non-partisan organization of civil servants and veterans, or any other American who has taken an oath. Memebership as a Citizen Associate Member, is available to anyone else subject to taking an oath to defend the Constitution. The group is founded by and run by Stewart Rhodes, formerly a U.S. Army paratrooper from Montana. The organization’s motto is “Not on our Watch.” Its website is dedicated to “the memory of John William Adams (1925-2006), Marine and Oath Keeper extraordinaire.”
To support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God.
There is at this time a debate within the ranks of the military regarding their oath. Some mistakenly believe they must follow any order the President issues. But many others do understand that their loyalty is to the Constitution and to the people, and understand what that means.1
Joel Skousen had warned prior to the J6 Capitol False Flag, that Oath Keepers is susceptible to infiltration because they have no way to vet their members and basically take on any and all claims of being a patriot. This turned out to be a gross error as they were heavily infiltrated by FBI agents and others. A leaked list of Oath Keepers members was published on 12-13-2022 at the Project on Government Oversight (POGO) website. The list included current or former employees of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) including members of the Border Patrol, Coast Guard, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Secret Service.
It is not clear how many of these men and women were federal operatives but the number is likely significant. Despite the constant attacks by the liberal media and Democrat politicians, the Oath Keepers is not a criminal organization. A leaked report on The Oath Keepers paramilitary organization committed to the US Constitution found that potentially hundreds of far-right extremists have infiltrated federal law enforcement, the Project on Government Oversight reported.1a
J6 insurrection hoax
Faced with mounting criticism and exposure over the January 6, 2021 false flag attack on the U.S. Capitol, the Biden regime DOJ issued a press release on January 13, 2022 in preparation for the 2022 Midterm elections:2
Nothing needs to be proven in a court of law prior to the November 2022 midterm elections. It is sufficient for the politically weaponized Biden DOJ and the conspiracy theory-driven mainstream media to allege a plot of insurrection for propaganda purposes in an election year.3
After more than one year in detention without bail in the DC gulag, the Biden regime Department of Justice under Merrick Garland successfully coerced plea bargains from several Oath Keepers.

He also pleaded guilty to one count of obstructing an official proceeding. As part of his plea, James agreed to cooperate with federal investigators, including testifying in front of a grand jury. James agreed that Elmer Stewart Rhodes instructed himself and others to be prepared and called upon to use lethal force if necessary to keep Donald Trump in office.4 James agreed to pay $2,000 under the agreement for the damages to the Capitol. The maximum penalty for seditious conspiracy is 20 years in prison, a fine of $250,000 and 3-year supervised release, along with other fees and penalties.5 James made no statement in court other than to answer the judge’s questions. The sentencing date has not been set, pending cooperation from the defendant. The plea marks the first successful use of a sedition charge in decades.6
