FBI Sets up Mentally-Ill Man to Make “Anti-Government Extremist” Terror Attack

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) deliberately gave paranoid schizophrenic Jerry Drake Varnell a vehicle and a fake bomb to supposedly carry out an attack in Oklahoma City in 2017—even though they knew he had been in and out of mental institutions since he was 16, had been found mentally incompetent by a court, and placed under his parents’ legal guardianship.

The Department of Justice’s U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Oklahoma boasted in a press statement issued on February 25 that Varnell, now 24, had been convicted by a federal  jury of “attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction at BancFirst in downtown Oklahoma City.”

The statement said that the FBI arrested Varnell in August 2017 “after he attempted to detonate what he believed to be an explosives-laden van he had parked in an alley next to BancFirst, at 101 North Broadway.

“The arrest was the culmination of a long-term domestic terrorism investigation involving an undercover operation, during which Varnell had been monitored closely for months as the alleged bomb plot developed.  The explosives were inert, and the public was not in danger.”

The FBI said it “had received information that Varnell initially wanted to blow up the Federal Reserve Building in Washington, D.C., with a device similar to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing because he was upset with the government.”

At trial, the jury heard testimony from an informant who made recordings of his conversations with Varnell.  It also heard from the undercover FBI agent who helped Varnell build what he thought was a bomb, an FBI bomb technician, and others. 

Significantly, the FBI statement said the court had “heard the testimony of a defense expert concerning Varnell’s mental health.  Through its verdicts, the jury concluded any mental health problems did not prevent Varnell from forming the intent required for conviction.  It also determined the FBI did not entrap him.”

The reality is that Varnell is a certified mentally ill paranoid schizophrenic, who had no job, no money, and no ability to commit a terrorist act. Part of the condition of being a paranoid schizophrenic is to believe that others are “out to get you,” and this would perfectly explain Varnell’s bizarre comments on social media about the government which brought him to the FBI’s attention.

A statement issued by Varnell’s family summed up the situation:

We as a family are extremely distraught about this situation with our son Jerry Drake Varnell, but what the public must understand is that he is a paranoid schizophrenic and is extremely susceptible to different types of ideology that normal people would deem immoral. Underneath his condition, he is a sweet-hearted person and we are extremely shocked that this event has happened.

However, what truly has us flabbergasted is the fact that the FBI knew he was schizophrenic. The State of Oklahoma found him mentally incompetent and we, his parents have legal guardianship over him by the Court.

These documents are sealed from the public, which is why no news media outlet has been able to obtain them.

The FBI clearly knew that he was schizophrenic because they have gathered every ounce of information on him.

Reading the criminal complaint against him has brought us great pause due to the numerous lies from the informant. We do not have an underground bunker! We built our home a few years ago and bought a storage container, as we use it for a storm shelter. We only recently pushed dirt up around it to make it safe. The building is used for storage and is NOT a bunker full of food and supplies, in fact the doors close from the outside. It has neither electricity nor anything that would make it habitable.

What the public should be looking at is the fact that the FBI gave our son the means to make this happen. He has no job, no money, no vehicle, and no driver’s license, due to the fact that he is schizophrenic and we; his parents do everything we can possible to keep him safe and functional.

The mental health system has consistently failed us due to the lack of establishments and health care coverage for a person like him. He has attended college and just enrolled in welding school. His medications allow him to be somewhat functional but he will never be completely functional in life.





His brain does not work like a normal person and never will due to the nature of his mental illness. He has suffered through countless serious full-blown schizophrenic delusional episodes and he has been put in numerous mental hospitals since he was 16 years old.

The FBI came and picked him up from our home, they gave him a vehicle, gave him a fake bomb, and every means to make this happen none of which he had access to on his own.

We know who their informant is and what the public should know is that he is that a drug-dealing criminal.

On June 15, 2017, Jerry’s Father told the criminal informant “that he was not allowed back on our property and if he returned we would have him arrested for trespassing and drugs”. Apparently, he continued to sneak onto our residence. The FBI paid him to continue this operation and I believe they have cleared his criminal record.

The FBI should have filed conspiracy on our son and had him committed to a mental institution. They should not have aided and abetted a paranoid schizophrenic to commit this act.

There are many more facts that I will not make public that will support my son and the disturbing acts made by the FBI. I realize that many will say my son could have found another person to commit this act. Yet, any person that has access to the materials and the state of mind necessary to bomb a building would not have any need for a schizophrenic who has no resources to contribute.

Schizophrenics always have conspiracy theories and feels everyone is out to get them. They trust no one and there is no doubt in my mind that this informant began this hate against the government and my son followed along because others easily influence him. There is no person in his life that has even heard anything about hatred for the government and we have all been shocked by the event.

The reference to an “underground bunker” was just one of the bizarre—and clearly mentally ill—comments made by Varnell to the drug-dealer “informant”. In that comment, Varnell said he had “a bunker for when the world or the United States collapsed.”

In reality, the Varnell family’s storage container is no “bunker,” as photographs released by the family revealed.

The facts of this case are therefore as follows:

In the full knowledge that their target was a paranoid schizophrenic with a history of mental illness, hospitalization, had been declared officially incompetent by a court, had no driver’s licence, no job, no money, and lived at home as an adult officially placed under his parent’s guardianship, the FBI used his deliberately targeted Varnell after some online comments expressing anger with the government.

As part of their “operation,” the FBI gave Varnell a car, and let a FBI bomb technician build him a fake bomb, and sent him on his way to “explode” this fake bomb—and then “arrested” him.

This incident will now be entered into the “extremist,” “hate,” or “anti-government extremist” crime statistics to later show how evil white people generally are.

Anyone who doubts that the establishment is not institutionally anti-white, and will not hesitate to use the most underhand and despicable methods to achieve their aims—including exploiting the mentally ill—need only look at the Varnell situation as a case in point.

* Varnell faces a maximum sentence of life for attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and a maximum sentence of twenty years for attempting to use an explosive device.  The explosive-device count carries a statutory mandatory minimum sentence of five years, even though it was built and supplied by the FBI.
