Trump supporter arrested for threatening to slaughter senators and their families for not supporting Brett Kavanaugh

Published

on

Last week, James Patrick posted a credible threat on Facebook, saying he planned to shoot members of Congress depending on the outcome of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The Florida man was arrested, yet, oddly enough, Facebook still hasn’t removed the post, The Ledger reported.

Patrick’s avatar is a handgun and his photos show conspiracy theories about Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, including a photo of a young woman (not Dr. Ford) with George Soros.

On Sept. 24, Patrick posted that he “bought 12 boxes of hollow point 50 caliber bullets.” He went on to say he has “plenty of ammo for my sniper rifle and bought a suppressor from a private individual so I don’t have to wait on it .. have made sure all my arrangements have been made and care for my dogs because I will not be coming home if Kav is not confirmed I will kill those I believe are responsible and track down their families and kill them too ..and have taken extra precautions and added more supplies in the tunnel under my house in case local or federal law enforcement tries to stop me .. follow in my footsteps .. I refuse to let democrats [sic] ruin this country.”

The second post alluded to the first, saying he was ready to give up his life for the cause.

“I can tell it seems I will be sacrificing my life for my country,” Patrick wrote on Sept. 29. “But I am ready and will know who needs to be killed after the vote to put Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court.”

“Getting ready if Kav is not confirmed,” he wrote in a Sept. 22 Facebook post. “Whoever I think is to blame may God have mercy on their soul .. just cleaned out the gun shop where I get guns ammo and target practice .. bought all their 50 cal hollow points. I expect to be confronted and I will be ready to kill and ready to die.”

In a post from two years ago that Patrick re-shared, he said that he’d find it amusing if President Donald Trump slammed Hillary Clinton’s head into the podium.

In another post from 2017, he wrote “I can’t do this by myself ! Need more conservatives going into liberals’ homes at night killing them in their sleep!”

He was never arrested for these threats, however, only the ones to elected officials.

Patrick had ammunition in his home, according to deputies.

Bail has been set at $500,000 and he has been arrested before for battery in 2009, though it’s unclear if it was domestic related.

Sheriff Grady Judd said in a press release that he wishes people would calm down and stop making threats of violence.

“Anyone who threatens to shoot or kill any public servant or law enforcement officer will go to jail immediately,” the statement read.

Former four-star general speculates whistleblower scandal could involve Trump giving Putin an American

Published

on

It remains unclear exactly what were the issues cited by the whistleblower who expressed concern at actions of President Donald Trump as a threat to national security, at least one of which involved a promise the president allegedly made in a phone call with a foreign leader.

But former Gen. Barry McCaffrey had a chilling thought about what it could possibly be — and posted his speculation on Twitter:

SHEER SPECULATION. Is it possible that the WHISTLEBLOWER issue was Trump discussing with Putin handing over our former US Ambassador to Moscow Mike McFaul to Russian authorities? https://t.co/0PnQn0upiA
