For example, Liverman publicly posted online documents and personal information unlawfully obtained from a victim’s personal...

    The deputy head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, Brigadier General Hossein Salami, warned Europe on Saturday that if it threatens Tehran, the Guards will increase the range of missiles to above 2000 kilometers. “If we have kept the range of our missiles to 2000 kilometers, it’s not due to lack of technology. ... We are following a strategic doctrine,” Salami said, according to the Reuters news agency, which cited a report in Iranian media. “So far we have felt that Europe is not a threat, so we did not increase the range of our missiles. But if Europe wants to turn...

    N.Korea Threatens S.Korean Marines with 'Annihilation' In this video grab from MBC, North Korean propaganda leaflets are found on Baeknyeong Island in the West Sea on Monday. North Korea on Monday floated hundreds of propaganda leaflets into South Korea threatening the "annihilation" of the 6th Marine Brigade on Baeknyeong Island, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said. The burst of belligerence comes less than a week after the execution of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s uncle Jang Song-taek, who was seen as a moderate. The previous day, the North Korean propaganda website, Uriminzokkiri also threatened to "mercilessly throw a battering ram"...

    An Edwardsville man who pleaded guilty to threatening to assassinate President Trump on Facebook may face up to five years in federal prison. Joseph L. Pickett published multiple posts on Facebook, threatening to “take the life of, to kidnap, and to inflict bodily harm” against Trump, according to a criminal complaint filed with the charges in June. “Before I die I want our president and congress to sign a treaty to never side with Russia or any enemy of the United States of America! If one will then that person deserves to be shot,” his post read. “Guess what Trump?...

    Fox News’s Tucker Carlson said Monday that he received a cease and desist letter from Tony Podesta’s lawyer over his reporting on the Podesta Group. Not only does the threatening letter demand Carlson stop discussing reports about the group but that they also retract and delete all previous reporting as well. This, Carlson said, was an effort to “use fear to control press coverage.” “Podesta isn’t just complaining about us, he’s threatening us,” Carlson said on his show Monday. The letter, he continued, “demands that the show ‘immediately cease and desist disseminating false and misleading reports about Mr. Podesta and...

    He continued, saying that the letter, “demands that the show ‘immediately cease and desist disseminating false and misleading reports about Mr. Podesta and the Podesta group.’ It demands we retract and delete all our prior reporting on the Podesta group and warns that if we don’t do this, ‘Mr. Podesta may pursue legal action, including for damages in order to fully protect his rights.” Carlson also said, “Podesta’s lawyer wasn’t trying to inform us of anything — but to threaten us, to shut down our reporting on his client. One lawyer we talked to earlier today said the Podesta people...

    Tony Podesta has reportedly threatened Fox’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” hours after resigning from his role at the Podesta Group – a D.C. lobbying firm accused by a former executive of pedaling Russian influence along with fellow lobbyist and short-lived Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. Last week Carlson reported that Tony Podesta is a central figure in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Directly after his report, Carlson’s show was contacted by a former long-time executive of the Podesta Group with “direct personal knowledge” of Tony Podesta’s questionable activities, which Carlson divulged the next evening. While the nature of Podesta’s threat has...

    ... let's look at Morford assessment of Pruitt (bolds are mine throughout this post): Why the EPA director’s security now costs $2 million ... Behold, this banally evil, milquetoast, science-denying government administrator who now, due to an unprecedented, surprising-but-then-again-not-really number of death threats – the agency has already investigated 70 so far – demands a round-the-clock security detail, one totaling dozens of henchmen making six figures apiece and costing taxpayers more than $2 million a year, a ridiculous situation unheard of in the modern era. It is yours to ponder why. Here's a wild guess, Mark: The far-left has become...

    Imagine if President Trump stayed hidden in the White House because of threats made against him. Florida congresswoman, Rep. Frederica Wilson, has not been seen in Washington, D.C. for days and it appears it's all because of those Trump supporters. The Democrat from Miami was all over the media last week condemning the president for a condolence call he made to the wife of Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed in an Oct. 4 ambush in Niger. But after creating a torrential firestorm with her attacks, the lawmaker found herself the target of ongoing threats against her, the Miami...

    The anonymous tip came in at 10:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 6. There it sat for almost 24 hours, until Rob Shimshock, a 22-year-old reporter for the Daily Caller in Washington, found it in the site’s generic inbox, an electronic slush pile. The unsigned email contained links to a few tweets, as well as to the biographical page of an untenured history lecturer at California State University, Fresno—Lars Maischak. The author was obscure, but the tweets were explosive. On February 17, Maischak had posted on Twitter about the new president: “To save American democracy, Trump must hang. The sooner and...

    ....."Things have recently gotten even more curious. If a news organization with the resources to go to Wales and interview Mr. Davies wanted to do so in order to get some answers, they wouldn’t find him at home. He’s in hiding. Just who would a charlatan opportunist, like the one he’s being portrayed to be, want to hide from, Morley Safer? Davies contacted his publisher, Simon & Schuster by email and informed then he was “going dark,” this past Friday morning. The message indicated that someone had threatened to harm his family if he continued to defend the truthfulness of...

    There was a break-in at Senator Dean Heller’s office in southwest Las Vegas over the weekend and the GOP’s health-care bill seems to have inspired it. Considered a key swing vote on the Senate bill, Heller initially expressed reservations about its Medicaid cuts but hasn’t said much about the latest revised version. According to one report, his vote is likely to be “bought,” giving Republicans enough “yeas” to push the bill through. One person in Nevada wants to make sure Heller remains opposed to the bill and went about it in about the worst possible way, breaking into his office...

    A total of 30 Republican members of Congress have either been attacked or revealed that they were the victim of a death threat since the beginning of May. May 8: Wendi Wright, 35, was arrested after stalking Rep. David Kustoff (Tenn.) and trying to run him off the road.

    Top party official called for 'violence, death, blood in the streets'! There is no doubt that politics in the United States now include a level of violence not seen in recent memory. It comes as factions of the Democratic Party have proven unable to accept the fact their candidate for president, now twice-failed Hillary Clinton, lost a decisive election to the GOP candidate, Donald Trump, in 2016. It means they are not able to continue pushing the nation in a far-left progressive direction, as they did over and over again under Barack Obama. Even during the campaign, Trump supporters faced...
