Feel the hate! It appears that there is a trending effort on twitter to raise money to hire a hit man to kill Donald Trump.

    Threatening the President (or President Elect) is a class E felony under 18 U.S.C. § 871. Secret Service has jurisdiction.
    Threats against other Federal government officials (& their families) are investigated by the FBI.

    “There are three elements of the offense of making an illegal threat: (i) there must be a transmission in interstate commerce; (ii) there must be a communication containing the threat; (iii) and the threat must be a threat to injure the person of another.”

  • I’d say threats on social media meet the elements required. Is anyone in mass media condemning the perpetrators?

    Hope you all are enjoying our very fine weather.

    Blair–
    Sadly, nothing is going to happen to these rioters.
    PDX is nice. I could learn to live in Tigard very easily, but not sure I could afford it. Tall trees, big mountains!
    >Fantastic train ride from Milwaukee to PDX
    My g-daughter Lindsey (and I) enjoyed your Oregon Day-Trip blog-posts over the past few months & your Michigan vacation adventure posts. She lives in Virginia & has never been “up north” to the Mackinaw Bridge, and neither of us have been west of the Mississippi, until now.

    Cotour– hey!
    Well, DJT is in. Mark Levin is optimistic, but he spent a good hour tonight reminding us of Mitch McConnell & Chris Christie and their perpetual non-stop RINO ways. As Mr Z has noted, for months, its imperative that solid people surround Trump & push for Conservative Policies.

    President directly hires about 3,500 people for the Executive Branch, and apparently Christie is already colluding with all sorts of Bush/Romney people, and Mitch has already stated “No Term Limit Bills will be considered by the Senate,” & “no nuclear option on filibusters.”

    Trump hasn’t even been sworn in, and Mitch is already undercutting him. (and Rinse Priebus, is a dangerous RINO, CRONY, establishment hack. He’s no “superstar,” he needs to GO & DJT needs to send him packing. He somehow kept his phony job through 2 loser presidential candidates and now he wants to cash in his meal-ticket on Trump.

    Wayne,

    Trumps learning curve will be interesting although I believe that he will in short order identify those who are standing in his way and take them to the yard and ceremoniously / symbolically spank them or slit their throats for all to see and learn from. (Kind of like the Clintons but more above board, honest and respectable)

    Mitch McConnel is an older man, maybe he has 4 or eight more years in him, and maybe does not, and while he is definitely sending messages about what will be and not be Trump is going to be more than a match for him IMO and he will tend to get more than he will be giving.

    This is going to be a very interesting political dance that we are all going to witness, and as a side note I think we are seeing him rising to the occasion and becoming more than as the weight and importance of his amazing American accomplishment sinks in.

    As an side, the Liberals / intellectually dishonest Leftists in my life are to a man and woman confused to say the least.

    All the best.
