“Occupy” Doctor Busted With Bomb Chemicals and Assault Rifles

Another Day… Another Democrat-supported goon is arrested on terrorism charges.

(New York Post)

Doctor Roberto Rivera, an #Occupy Wall Street medic, was arrested this week for storing chemicals to make bombs and assault rifles in his basement.
ABC reported:

Large amounts of chemicals commonly used to make bombs were found in the basement of a New Jersey doctor, along with assault rifles and a stun gun, prosecutors said today.

Dr. Roberto Rivera, 60, who according to some reports was active in the Occupy Wall Street movement last year, was arrested following a Friday night raid on his Ridgewood, N.J., home.

Ridgewood police first showed up at the home around 6:15 p.m. after getting a report of potential hazardous and explosive material, according to a press release from Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli.

Inside the home, police found a “large amount” of a chemical typically used in bomb-making, the release said. The name of the chemical was not released.

Armed with a search warrant, the FBI and the Bergen County Bomb Squad then visited Rivera’s home where they confiscated the bomb-making chemical and also found “several other precursor chemicals commonly used in the making of explosive devices,” Molinelli said.

After the chemicals were retrieved, Molinelli said police searched the home and found various weapons, including assault rifles, other firearms and a stun gun.

More… Doctor Rivera was the campaign manager for a New Party candidate in Illinois in 1998, Willie Delgado (currently seated in Illinois State Senate)

    Please do something to this guy, punish him. If it was a survivalist or a conservative they would lock him up and throw away the key.

  • Careful with this. FBI loves to “catch” bombers. Some turn out to be nuts with stuff, not bombers.

    What is “large”? What is a precursor- diesel fuel in a can? Fertilizer in a bag? And as we know, unless it goes boom boom boom after just pulling the trigger once, it is NOT an assault rifle but a legal semi-auto rifle. What caliber? .22 long rifle??

    Seriously. He may have deserved it, but remember, first them then us.

    Just saying…

    Sounds like a Bill Ayers acolyte.

    Any relation to Geraldo ?

    Very vague. Is there a crime here? Maybe, maybe not.

    “……was arrested this week for storing chemicals to make bombs and assault rifles in his basement”


    Isn’t this a little misleading?

    Common household chemicals COULD be used to make a bomb, and the last time I check the 2nd Amendment had not been repealed.

    Wasn’t he in fact arrested for ‘Intent To Commit’ a violent act?

    He must be a proctologist.

    what, no BC or Plan B pills?? /s/


  • Joe College

    Wiki says the turn he lives in is 83% white and has a mean income of $143,229. As soon as he gets out of jail he ought to MOVE. He’d be less of a misfit.

    typo…’turn’ s/b ‘town’

    I’d like some more details before making any sort of judgment as to what it is that’s happening here. Something doesn’t seem quite right.

  • US Navy Corpseman

    Couldn’t be much of a ‘medic’ with all the disease and deaths in those vermin-filled camps.

    Senile old fool.

    Common sense and caution are refreshing. Thank you. Trusting the media reports about ‘bombers’ in our midst makes about as much sense as trusting anything Obama says. Totally an exercise for gullible children and McDonald dish washers.

    He’s probably a friend of Barry’s friend, Ayers.

  • If this chap had one – as little as one – round of any caliber JHP and can’t prove he bought it before the civilian ban went into effect there, he’s in some serious trouble with a state law that shouldn’t exist.

  • Thanks Emily.

    Don’t get me wrong, he could be a bad guy. And probably is, being he is part of OWS.

    But here’s my trouble with this. First we all know the FBI has been politicized by both sides for long time. Not the agents fault, but it is their bosses’ fault.

    Proof? Well we can start all the way by to the Atlanta bombings and the wrong guy. Or Ruby Ridge and the set up on the “extremist” who turned out to be a guy who didn’t want to be a CI for the ATF.

    Or we could move up a little and note that the Hasan shootings were considered BY THE FBI as workplace violence. And even Geraldo (thanks for the inaccurate reference there, bub) finally had to get off his PC position and admit it was a terrorist attack. BUT the FBI refuses to budge.

    Then there is the strange occurrence where we are told that terrorists are constantly trying to commit acts in this nation, but the only ones we see are the ones the FBI informants manage to locate in time for the FBI to catch- on TV- with accompanying press releases.

    Doesn’t it bother you just a little that we aren’t seeing a dozen attempts, eleven making it and one getting caught by the Feebees? As a former career detective, I’m telling you that is more of a normal ratio between criminal acts and police interdiction.

    If the terrorists are trying so hard, and they have access to some many types of weapons in our open society, why aren’t there more incidents?

    Truthfully, we have had a number starting really with the D.C. snipers- who the FBI did not catch. Local PD caught them. (and they never classified as domestic terrorism, even after the one shooter said his motive was to create a Muslim nation inside the U.S.) We had a shooter in Arkansas who managed to kill some soldiers and the FBI didn’t catch him. AND when he got caught and said he was one of many coming soon, the FBI still did not consider him a terrorist.

    So, when the FBI say “I gots one!” like a fisherman standing in a boat holding up this guy as a big catch on a stringer, pardon me if I hesitate to jump.

    And remember, if he is storing gas, bullets and a gun in the same house and the FBI thinks that is akin to being a bomb-maker, then what are you in your house? Now if he is storing real bomb making material then good job to them and that somebody who told the police about him.

    I remember years ago a story in Connecticut- a real anti-gun state- where a teacher was arrested for having an arsenal of guns, as the Conn. State trooper press officer put it. The guns were laid out on his front lawn. The press was called to his house to take pictures.

    They had raided his house while he was at work. He gets a call from his neighbor saying he had better get home. He gets there, gets arrested while watching this display. The arsenal? A .22 rifle, a bolt action rifle, a shotgun and some other old weapons. The NRA got involved, he was found innocent but the state refused to give him his guns back.

    You ask how did the troopers know he had the collection? Good question. Seems as a law abiding citizen of that state he was required to fill out registration forms for the guns. He had either forgotten that year or filled them out incorrectly and came to the attention of the police.

    Think about that before you jump on anything you hear. That’s all I’m saying.

    Shooot, the PD in Connecticut would STROKE if they ran across my “collection.”

    Just saying…

    Good. Another sick leftist goes to jail.

    Guaranteed thay found NO ASSAULT RIFLE”S.

    An assault rifle is a select fire weapon, Pull the trigger and empty the magazine.

    He had an EBR. Evil Black Rifle.

    Chemicals can be bought at Walmart or your local pool store.

  • Militant Conservative

    Archer52, your right the COP’s would be stroking out if they saw my arsenal.

    Especially the ammo dump.

    I trust no one in this regime and I, too, am a little skeptical about this even if it does involve an occupooper.

    I came to guns via politics. My father in law came to politics due to guns.

    It’s an old saying “Guns have two enemy’s, politicians and rust”.

    I know many who have been preparing for a revolution for over 10 years.

    Do you even know how much ammo that is? Know others that have gone a

    little over the edge. Buying black market full auto “assault” weapons.

    Nope not the FF pieces of doodoo, REAL OMG military grade weapons.

    Obama does not want to play this card as it is the invitation to his removal.

    Statistics say about 40,000,000 gun owners. Kinda hard to beat that army of

    entrenched subversive covert operations.

    Come on Obama do it, wimp.

  • I agree with #3.

    Let all the facts come forth… grand jury time.

    People who lawfully reload ammunition, store gun power.

  • MC-

    I think I read the number of gun owners in America is about 88mil owning over a hundred millions guns. The feds can field about sixty thousand (I think I did the number once). Many of those are not field trained. So right now it is a numbers game. That is why they’ll target certain people and locations with overwhelming force to send messages. But an attempt to seize guns would be met with a bunch of agents saying to their bosses,

    “Screw that. You want to take those guns so bad YOU go get them! I like my body to keep the number of holes God designed in it. Extra holes are bad.”

    This is why liberals, including Obama, don’t touch this rail. They’ll tax it out, deny it to us, and you watch through Obamacare- will punish gun owners.

    Add training and educating kids to hate guns and the long range plan is to simply breed the gun owners out of their society. THEN they will have total control.

    Britain took control in about sixty years of hard effort. But their society had already been comfortable with total government control, plus their mindset it totally different than ours.
    I can say with clarity that until the immigrants came into Britain a police officer really didn’t need a gun. Now its different. Their loose immigration policy has allowed a very violent element within their borders, and they had better learn how to use guns now.

  • Mc-

    As a side note. My buddy just picked up some 223 rear penetrators cheap. Special forces are using them with great results. HP in front, designed to shed and keep the back end together to penetrate metal and glass like windshields.

    He likes them a lot. Says deer and hog hunters are getting one shot drops
