19 year old North Carolina man had plans to assassinate Joe Biden
A North Carolina man who was indicted last month on charges of child pornography also had plans to commit a mass shooting during the holidays and assassinate Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. A federal grand jury indicted 19-year-old Alexander Hillel Treisman a.k.a “Alexander S. Theiss” in September on charges of knowingly possessing an image that contained child pornography, according to the Daily Beast. When authorities investigated Treisman’s electronic devices, they discovered a bounty of disturbing information.
Found among Treisman’s social media accounts and devices were images of various firearms he owned, plans to commit a mass shooting on “Christmas or Black Friday,” references to child pornography and child-rape, and multiple internet searches about Biden’s home.
Along with this information, authorities learned that he had purchased an AR-15 in New Hampshire and travelled to a Wendy’s within 4 miles of Biden’s home. He had also written a checklist ending with “execute" and under one of his social media accounts he had posted a meme with the caption “should I kill joe biden?”
Evidence gathered seems to suggest Treisman had made tentative plans to leave the country at one point with a doctored Polish passport discovered on his hard drive and emails to a Canadian law firm asking about obtaining Canadian citizenship.
According to a court order obtained by WBTV, in March a white van parked in a local bank’s parking lot was first reported by the bank’s employees to the police. The officers had the van towed and during a search of the vehicle discovered several firearms along with explosive materials, drawings of swastikas and over $500,000 believed to be Treisman’s inheritance.
The Kannapolis Police Department returned to the bank when Treisman showed up and inquired about the whereabouts of the van. Treisman was taken into custody on charges of carrying a concealed weapon.
In the car he used to drive to the bank, authorities discovered more firearms as well as multiple state IDs, one of which had his alias “Alexander S. Theiss.”
Treisman had no prior criminal history but in its ruling the court said it "concludes that the record establishes by clear and convincing evidence that no combination of available release conditions would reasonably assure the safety of the community.”
The president’s “devolution into disbelief,” as the Washington Post described it, has led him to seize on unfounded conspiracy theories and turn to loyalists who’ll promote them. Donald Trump, unwilling to accept his defeat to President-elect Joe Biden, has spent the past three weeks in denial. Though his crusade to shift the outcome of the 2020 race has failed, his efforts will nevertheless leave a lasting stain on public faith in America’s elections.
President-elect Joe Biden's victory over President Donald Trump in Wisconsin was reaffirmed on Sunday after a recount was completed in one of the state's largest counties. The recount in Dane County, which was requested by the Trump campaign, showed Biden won by 181,340 votes as the President-elect's lead narrowed by 45 votes.
Donald Trump’s legal team suffered yet another defeat in court Friday as a federal appeals court in Philadelphia roundly rejected the campaign’s latest effort to challenge the state’s election results. Trump’s lawyers vowed to appeal to the supreme court despite the Philadelphia judges’ assessment that the “campaign’s claims have no merit”.
Joe Biden is projected to win the 2020 presidential election, defeating Donald Trump in a nail-biter of a race sure to remain contentious given the country’s bitter partisan divide and the president’s reckless and unfounded claims voter fraud. Major news networks projected that Biden, a former Delaware senator and vice president during Barack Obama’s administration, would win Pennsylvania, pushing him over the 270 electoral-vote threshold. Counting continues in several states, where Biden is leading or expected to win.
