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.”
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.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is leading in most national and state-level polls one day before Election Day, leaving his supporters cautiously optimistic as they near the finish line. Polling shows Biden with leads in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin — three states that contributed to President Trump’s unexpected victory in 2016. The former vice president is also making inroads in other battlegrounds like Florida, Texas, North Carolina, Ohio and Georgia. The FiveThirtyEight forecasting model gives Biden a 90-percent chance of winning the election.
President Donald Trump signaled early Monday morning that he may fire Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, after Election Day.
Joe Biden’s campaign moved swiftly to push back on President Donald Trump’s anticipated attempt to say he has won before all the votes are counted on Tuesday night. Top Biden officials also reissued assurances that Democrats have marshaled the legal muscle to quash last-minute Republican maneuvering and challenges in the courts. In a virtual briefing with reporters, Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon stressed that Trump’s remarks have no bearing on the actual election results. "Under no scenario will Donald Trump be declared a victor on election night,” O’Malley Dillon said.
