My opinion is that Ian came up with a cockamamie scheme to make money using churches in-name-only as a tax loophole. Now he's shocked-Pikachu that he got caught.

I still believe that they just wanted to shut that radio down, because if Ian has done any kind of long term stuff, then why not go the correct way of investigation without violence.

Feds literally don't give a crap about the radio show. But they get VERY pissy about money laundering and tax fraud.

Religion has always been abused to rob the state, in Germany they have an obligatory church tax that everyone has to pay and if you want to opt out you gotta pay the personal interview

Why would you be so stupid to do any kind of illegal crap that will be persecuted one day while living in the USA. Maybe he was just right, using that loophole, maybe church is hoax.

He and his followers will now paint him as a Martyr for the Cause, and some kind of Ross Ulbricht figure.
I think Ross was an honest agorist businessman; I think Ian is a narcissist.

I'll be shocked if he gets less than 10 years in Federal prison.
If his co-defendants have any brains they'll roll on him, tell prosecutors he lied to them, & serve much shorter terms.
