WISCONSIN MAN ARRESTED FOR THREATENING

TO ASSASSINATE PRESIDENT-ELECT OBAMA

Jackson, Miss - Steven Joseph Christopher was arrested by agents of the United States Secret Service today for making threats against President-Elect Barack Obama, U.S. Attorney Dunn Lampton announced. Christopher, who is from Wisconsin, was arrested in Brookhaven, Miss. Christopher made threats against President-Elect Barack Obama on an internet chat forum on Jan. 11, 15 and 16, 2009.

"Threats against the President-Elect will be taken very seriously," said U.S. Attorney Lampton. "Use of internet chat rooms to express those threats is as much a crime as uttering the words. Threats of this nature will be pursued swiftly and vigorously."

According to an Affidavit filed by Special Agent Kelly Adcox with the United States Secret Service, Christopher posted the following on the Web site www.alien-earth.org on Jan. 11, 2009:

ok we have 6 days until my Presidential Assasination.
Yes, I have decided I will assasinate Barack Obama. It's really nothing personal about the man. He speaks well, has a loving although controlling wife and two cute daughters. But I know it's for the country's own good that I do this. And I'm not racist either, my family is a little, but isn't all Italian and european families? I mean how many times have you heard the word (racial slur) in the comforts of your home? I have a lot, and it really bothered me and I would confront them about it. No, it's not because I'm racist that I will kill Barack, it's because I can no longer allow the Jewish parasites to bully their way into making the American people submit to their evil ways. How many of you Obama supporters are now disappointed after some of his arm-twisted Jewish appointee decisions??? Make's you think he's not really in charge(which he isn't). No it's the same old, same old filthy (expletive) (racial slur) who are poisoning America, who have murdered thousands of innocent lives on 9-11-01, and are thinking that they are going to get away with it again.

Barack, I view more as a sacrificial lamb, but the sacrifice MUST take place. He had good intentions, but like the Steve Taylor song goes, "a politician next door, swore, he'd set the Washington arena on fire, thinks he'll gladiate them, but they're gonna make him a liar."

So, I'm stuck here in Mississippi, and I'll need bus fare or some way of getting to Washington. I don't own a gun, so maybe someone can give me one. And I'll need a leak in the secret service to get a close up shot, somewhere close to the podium, since I've never fired a gun, so I need to get an easy shot off. Wattdysay fellas? Any help?

You all know we can't live with the jewscum anylonger, dont cha? You got a better solution? I'm all ears.

Stevie

Also, according to the Affidavit, on Jan. 15, 2009, Christopher posted the following:

RE: ok we have 6 days until my Presidential Assasination.

Why is your heart so wicked?

I can get away with actually murdering Barack Obama OR just threatening to do it.
hth

The Affidavit also sets forth the following post which was entered today, Jan. 16, 2009:

To those who still think I'm a nobody, who antagonize me, who seek for my capture and arrest.....

I wll have you found, arrested and executed, if you push me too far.

Christopher was arrested without incident by agents of the U.S. Secret Service and members of the Lincoln County, Miss., Sheriff's Department and agents of the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation pursuant to a criminal complaint charging him with a violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 871 which makes it a crime for anyone to threaten to kill the President-Elect of the United States. The maximum penalty for this offense is 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Lampton praised the efforts of local law enforcement for their assistance in this matter, particularly the Sheriff of Lincoln County, Steve Rushing, and his deputies, along with the agents from the Mississippi Bureau of Investigations.

THANK YOU LYNN SWEET FOR YOUR WONDERFUL BLOG,
SORRY YOU HAVE TO REPORT ABOUT THIS KIND OF NEWS!
BARACK OBAMA IS THE PRESIDENT FOR ALL AMERICANS!

STOP SCREAMING PHIL!

Of course, actually threatening to kill the president (non-capital p intended). However, Obama is a completely imcompetent moron. Without a doubt the least qualified unaccomplished person to ever occupy the Oval Office. He has seriously damaged this country in the short time he has been in office. Thank god he is basically fairly ineffective. His agenda would destroy this country at a very vulnerable time.

You people DO realize that the Constitution stipulates that we HAVE THE RIGHT to forcibly remove tyrants from our Government, right? In fact, it is OUR DUTY to do this if necessary.

We also reserve the right to dismantle the ENTIRE system should it become corrupt (which it absolutely has), and also to forcibly remove ALL PUBLIC SERVANTS from Office by any means necessary and to then to rebuild it.

They know this and they are scared shitless because of it. In fact, they do not make it mandatory for school's to teach you about your own Constitution or Bill of Rights. Its a real wonder why people can't see when they are being sold out by their "Elected" Officials huh?

Another fun fact: NO Laws made by Sate or Federal Governments are above our Constitution or the rights that it grants to us. They are NON-RESCINDABLE! But of course they have forgotten this and piss on them at every available opportunity.

At the end of the day, the Constitution IS the law. D.C. and ALL SERVANTS need to be reminded of this fact from time to time, as well as that WE, THE PEOPLE are the Government and they all would do well to remember it - ESPECIALLY Obama!


SECRET SERVICE ETC. ALL: NO THIS IS NOT A THREAT, JUST INFORMATIVE FACTS! DON'T TREAD ON ME!

Hell Yeah Anonymous! lets all move to texas and start up the revolution already!!

corruption? in america and the other "civilised" countries? BAH no! not possible... the world is blind to what politicians dont want it to see, and the world is oppressed by the beaurocracy and retardant layers of paperwork that needs to be cleared for change to happen. politicians are a disease. Barack Obama is not a politician at heart, i believe this to be so. but when one sleeps with the dogs, he is no better than them. through our intent to imply politics to make the world a safer place, we have instead doomed it to a slow agonising death through twisted grins of the rich and silent screams of the poor. you will read this and see that i am not being over dramatic, but i speak the truth. if you do not see this now, remember my words, and in the near future, my words will be your truth. we have damned ourselves all to hell.

Does anyone ever find it interesting that the vast majority of Republicans do not even have a college degree and they live in rural areas? I'm surprised they are even intelligent enough to post these comments. What this country needs is for the Republican Party to leave the democrats alone and let them do their jobs. Maybe for once, the United States would be respected outside of the United States.

I am hopeful that one day America will be rid of this kind of hate and hate speech. I pray that by the end of his term, President Obama will brings this country to a better place and that his leadership will inspire a new generation to lead with integrity.

Im sorry, but threatening to kill someone or even killing them is NOT the way to do it. This is America, and as Americans we the people have the Constitution on our side. I do not agree with almost everything Obama does. I believe he is completely against what America was founded on and stands for. Obama does not care what so ever about the hard working middle class that makes up America. He is a power hungry egomaniac that is making America weaker. We need a strong leader in office. November elections are coming soon enough, and as Americans we have our votes that will show this corrupt government we are no longer sleeping. We have had attacks by terrorists, and this Obama actually wants to give them rights? Are you kidding me. Let Obama keep screwing America, because he will be written in the history books as just such. He will be forever known as the first black president but also known for his mistakes. The only way to fight back is with your vote, so get out and vote Americans. Every vote counts. Vote out all incumbants and lets get our government working for Americans again. When Obama gets voted out come his next term, then he will have to live with being reminded what a horrible president he was and how he almost ruined America. But remember, he is just a puppet working for wealthy people. Americans need to fight back finally to this corruption.

HEY PHIL SMITH JR -- WHEN OBAMA NATIONALIZES YOUR JOB AND GIVES YOU MINIMUM WAGE ---- WHEN OBAMA AND THE NWO TAKE YOUR MEDICAL HEALTH CARE RIGHTS AWAY AND FORCES YOU INTO A TAX BRACKET WHICH LEAVES YOU WITH 10% OF YOUR EARNINGS -

DO YOU THINK MAYBE THEN YOU MIGHT WAKE UP TO THE EVIL COMING FROM THE ILLUMINATI NEW WORLD ORDER ASSHATS WHO ARE RUNNING THIS NATION INTO THE GROUND?

NAH- YOU ARE TOO BUSY WATCHING DANCING WITH THE STARTS OR PLAYING VIDEO GAMES

OBAMA IS AN ANTI-CHRIST TRYING TO SOCIALIZE OUR REPUBLIC

GOD HELP US ALL
