2623

U.S. officials arrested a South Florida man on Friday for leaving racist and obscenity-laden voicemails with three Democratic members of Congress that defended U.S. President Donald Trump and directed ire at U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar.

John Kless, 49, of Tamarac, Florida appeared before a magistrate judge in the Southern District of Florida, charged with making threatening communications. Bail was set at $25,000.

Kless is suspected of recording threatening messages on Tuesday on the phones of U.S. Senator Cory Booker, U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib and U.S. Representative Eric Swalwell, according to a criminal complaint filed by prosecutors.

Booker is African-American and Tlaib a Palestinian-American who were referred to on the recording with racist slurs. Booker and Swalwell are seeking the Democratic nomination for president to challenge Trump in 2020.

The arrest took place amid other incidents of racial tension in the United States and a more extreme political discourse. Another Florida man is facing prosecution in New York on charges of mailing 16 apparent pipe bombs to Trump rivals including Booker and former U.S. Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

Tuesday’s caller directed invective at Omar without naming her. The Somali-American first-term representative, along with Tlaib and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has drawn frequent criticism from conservatives.

The caller referred to recent comments by Omar about the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, that Trump and other conservatives seized upon, framing them as dismissive.

Omar was speaking about repression against Muslims in America following the attacks when she referred to 9/11 as “some people did something.” Trump later tweeted a video of the comment interspersed with images from the events that killed 3,000 people. Liberals in turn criticized Trump’s tweet as Islamophobic and endangering Omar.

  1. HOW LONG DO YOU THINK IT’S GOING TO BE BEFORE THERE IS REAL ACTIONS AND NOT THESE IMAGINARY THREATS? BETTER GET IT TOGETHER AMERICA. WAKE UP AND LETS GET RID OF THE PROBLEM. ALL THIS SHIT FROM THE LEFT SOCIALIST DEMORAT COCKROACHES, WITH ALL THE NOTHING BUT INTERFERENCE FROM THESE COCKROACHES OUR PRESIDENT TRUMP MANAGES TO STILL GET THINGS DONE! HE IS MAKING THIS COUNTRY STRONG, ECONOMICALLY BACK ON TOP, PEOPLE BACK TO WORK, MANUFACTURING BACK, UNEMPLOYMENT AT ITS LOWEST, MORE WOMEN, BLACKS, LATINO, WORKING PEOPLE TAKING HOME MORE MONEY. AND WHAT HAVE THE COCKROACHES DONE? NAME ONE THING THESE COCKROACHES HAVE DONE FOR THIS COUNTRY BESIDE FAGATISM, HURTING THEIR FUCKING FEELINGS, CREATING PROBLEMS AND SPENDING TAXPAYER MONEY LIKE A WATER FOUNTAIN, LIKE 30 MILLION DOLLARS ON THE BIGGEST WITCH HUNT IN US HISTORY EVER? THE PROBLEM NEEDS EXTERMINATION AND ERADICATION.

  2. American citizens are tired of our elected senators and representatives calling for hate filled actions. It is time for all to be the helpful, honest, hardworking persons that they should be. There is a political process, a constitutional process, laws are already passed, enforce them.

  3. Anyone that believes that voting will change the way America is right now, is foolishness! The left attacked us the day Obama was fraudulently inaugurated! We didn’t ask to be attacked, we were too busy working, and paying the taxes so all those little nigglettes can eat and go to school, have phones, electricity, and making the Political lifestyle like a star athlete, actor, or musician!
    Our politicians on both sides of the aisle stay in office way too long, and they all come in humble, and leave wealthy! Paying for people who refuse to work has broken this Country! Paying for Obama to seal his records, at $28M is asinine! Paying for Nancy Pelosi’s European Vacation is asinine! Buy lobster at the highest prices, and steak, shrimp, booze, is wasteful and there are too many American-Vets, homeless, and starving! Our National Debt is $23T and the interest alone is more than we can pay, the government just keeps on printing money, and the politicians keep on spending! Voting is not going to stop this! The thing that makes me madder than a run over dog is Citizens/taxpayers being ignored!
    Everyone knows that “WE THE PEOPLE” are supposed to be running this Country!
    There are only two ways to get our Country back, CWII, and refusing to pay taxes! The left has nothing to lose, they can’t stop fighting, they cheat in every election, they lie, they steal, the murder, and voting has never stopped them! Voting was supposed to help, but even when we get a Republican POTUS they attack him daily! They don’t want peace, they don’t want harmony, they want money and power, nothing else! We have to realize this as fact! Then we have to take the fight to them, while Trump is in office! If and when they control both chambers and have a Democrat POTUS we are fucked! They will end the Supreme Court, and have a dictator, you mark my words.The left is a Godless, immoral, ethicless, murdeous, vile, heartless, pack of wild dogs! Godless people, atheists, turned over for reprobate minds! They cheer for the right to murder helpless infants!

  4. THE DEMOCRATS WANTED THIS TO HAPPEN NOW THERE GOING TO GET THERE WISH. THEY VOTED THESE AMERICA HATERS INTO OFFICE DID THEY REALLY THINK THIS WOULD NOT HAPPEN. PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF THE LEFTS CRAP

  5. How is it that all these elected officials get away with threatening the President of the United States? ( that is sedition) and nothing is done to them? and yet when a citizen gets pissed off at some of the racist, terrorists clowns running our government, He get arrested for it? I’d like to hear that Shumer, Shiff, Pelosi, Talib and others who are recruiting for terrorist organizations in Palestine and Syria have been arrested and are being charged with TREASON.

  6. How strange is this that they arrested this man, But have done nothing about CNN allowing April Ryan saying on Live Broadcast News that Sara Sanders Head should be LOOPED OFF( CUT OFF) which is an absolute clear outright threat to Mrs. Sara Sanders life and in doing so very easily could incite some crazed leftist Lunatic Trump Hater out there so consumed with and wrapped up in the MSM Propaganda they may do exactly what April Ryan says should Happen to Sara Sanders, Basically it is no different than a Mob Boss ordering a Hit. This time CNN has crossed the bounds and Needs to be shut down and April Ryan arrested for spewing Teorrististis Threats out on Live Broadcast News

  7. When you divide –you lose–so demoncrats better wise up as there will be a revolution–you can not fool the people anymore-most of the masses are the asses and but they are waking up from a long sleep–the greedy lowlifes remind me of a monkey in the Amazon–he sees a cage with some food in it and reaches in to get it and the trap catches him and all he has to do is let go of the food and he will be free–but the dope is too greedy to let go –so he is caught–this is what is happening to the demoncrats and their followers–as Captain Quig said –oh- man goes into the cage and cage goes into the water and who is in the water—dum dee dee dum

  8. We must get back to church, we must get back to God, through his son Jesus! The wicked have taken control, we have allowed the atheists, the LGBT, the ACLU, the anti-Christ, into high places! There is no stopping men who have no moral compass, no integrity, no conscience, no respect for the rule of law, men and women who have sworn an Oath of Office to defend the Constitution and once in, call to abolish the Constitution!
    The DNC knowingly supported an ineligible candidate for POTUS in Obama! They turned their backs on our Framers, they turned their backs on the laws, the societal-rules, that they don’t like! When they turned on their own people, in favor of foreign born, sworn enemies, of the United States of America, and our strongest ally Israel. When men ignore the law of the land, and are not punished, they are emboldened, they go a little further the next time, like a child needing a spanking! They push you, gain an inch, then a mile! When we become passivists, we are weak, we are vulnerable, we are treaded under, we aren’t taken seriously, and the stronger take over! If you think that just because this is 2019, and we are so civilized, the enemies are between pages in history books, that is playing right into their hands! They will show you weakness, femininity’s, while they destroy you! This farce of feminizing our men, is just that, a farce! They want to sachet up to you, and cut your throat! We talk a lot about what we should be doing, yet while we talk, they act! In order to beat your enemies, you must first, acknowledge your enemies! They butter us up, which a lesson on what is, and isn’t, tolerated but who told them it wasn’t tolerated, they fooled us with political-correctness, a brilliant plan when dealing with ignorant people! They tell you what to wear, how to wear it, what is acceptable, and what isn’t, but think, who are they? Who do they think they are? Where did they come from? Who gave them the right to tell us what is, and isn’t, right and wrong?

  9. Why are the arresting him and not all the democrats that have made threats and advocate violence against republicans.

  10. That glorified, hood-rat, Obama and his Chicago Municipal Peacocks, came in and figured out what they could, and couldn’t do, because when he got here he was like a deer in the head-lights! Someone, had to educate them real, fast! Oh, they had the Bill Ayers; Anarchy 101 down pat! They had the Adolf Hitler, approach to brain washing the masses down pat! They had the Karl Marx, the Lennon, and the Frank Marshal Davis, down pat! The never ending, never failing RACE-CARD, they could pull out like a wild-west, gun-slinger! They just had to learn the ins, and outs, of DC and who they had dominion over!
    The only accomplishment Obama and his hood-rats had, was diminishing our military, that chicken-head, Susan Rice, calling our military Generals, with decades of experience, defending this Nation, and cursing them out, like she was somebody, allowing the trash, the dregs of society, slither in and make a mockery of our military institutions, makes me sick! Obama taking the money that us taxpayers sweated, and bled, to earn and buying cocaine, weed, and hotel rooms for him, and his possey! Visiting the home of drug lords, and acting like he was Tony Montoya, that hood-rat-bastard, shouldn’t be walking, and breathing, our good-free air! You can take the rat out of the hood, but you’ll never get the hood out of the rat! That skinny-necked, big-eared, jive-ass, street hustler and they have the audacity to harass President Trump! What does it take to bring the rage out of everyone? A Domestic-Terrorist, manufactured Obama! Bill Ayers, Communist-father, put Obama through Harvard! Obama’s mother, was a cultist- communist-anarchist! Then you have the DC liberal life-timers, the leeches, the dark-secret-society, Satan worshipping, child-sex-slave, kidnappers, everyone thinks, is a bunch of Mexican Cartels, when actually, it’s the Clinton Cartel. I watched the Hearing before Congress when that young tv star, Kutcher went to DC because he is very serious about stopping this evil, dark, and sickening, child sex slave industry!
    I don’t think that he knew he was actually speaking to the real, culprits! He was seeking assistance from the US Government, and little did he know, is exactly the target! He got a few sarcastic words out of John MCain! WE THE PEOPLE must sacrifice our lives, if we ever hope to be the America we once were! The left calls it going backwards, and I say yes! Let’s please go backwards, where we could leave our windows open all night, and our kids could play outside without having a hired body guard! When a handshake, and a mans word, sealed the deal. Where we knew when we saw a gorgeous woman walking by, was a woman! The time when we gave God, all the glory, for everything!

  11. This is such a disfunctional government because of the Progressive, Liberal , and Demoncrats policies. We have come to a bend in the road that we either have to stop these “traitors” from making wrong seem right, lies seem to be truth, and violence against anyone that disagrees with them okay, or give into all their obscene and vile life styles and go down the drain. Silence from conservatives and US patriots is NOT an option anymore. Enough is enough. A war is coming between good and evil. Which side will you be on?? Lock and load!!!!

  12. I would like to see names of the Obama Administration, and most of all Obama, HRC, Bill Clinton, Holder, Kerry, Comey, Lynch, Rice, Jarrett, Brennan, Clapper, The Ohrs, Schiff, Shumer, Pelosi, Waters, Ayers, Dorn, insets all I see from our elected Republican Politicians daily requests for donations! Not just one a day either, 4,5, and 6 times a day! It would be nice to see a giant headline saying, HRC finally behind bars, and not just her, then the list of the DNC Criminal Organization and George Soros!

  13. People don’t realize how close we are to being a Dictatorship! President Trump has made Obama look like a little monkey, chasing a football. The toll on him though, imagine the stress! Our President has done more in his short time in office, and while being attacked 24/7/365 since he was inaugurated, only because the DNC threw everything they had at him, HRC wasn’t even the winner of the DNC Presidential nomination election! They cheated to put her, the only hope they had, and still lost! They are angry beavers though! They were so sure of themselves, that they went ahead and took Justice Scalia our, Obama bought a mansion in DC, he couldn’t pay his rent in Chicago before he was POTUS! The thing is, HRC was supposed to be elected as a false storefront for an Obama third term! All that, and Obama wasn’t eligible to run for POTUS to begin with, after all that, those Hypocritical SOB’s had tha AUDACITY to investigate Trump!

  14. 90% of black people in America should hug a white persons neck everyday, and say thank you! I’m 56 years old, and there wasn’t a slave alive in the United States of America when I was born! My entire adult life, I’ve paid a special-tax, that should have been, this entire time, called “reparations-tax!”
    On top of that, you must think about this, white people, stopped slavery! We don’t get credit for it, but white people ended slavery, the Republican Party! The DNC has lied the entire time when they know that it was Andrew Johnson (D) Tennessee who stopped the 40-acres and a mule, program! They don’t tell you that at those DNC Conventions! Black children aren’t aware of the fact that the money that clothes them, feeds them, gives them shelter, buys their books, gives them light, gas, and water, comes from a majority of white workers taxes! All you hear out of them is white people are racists! They hate us, for giving them a chance to grow into adults, and beyond! Never in the history of the world has anyone been so misinformed/manipulated!

  15. The DNC is attempting to do that with Mexicans, and Latinos, and they may get a few votes, but The Mexicans are too intelligent to fall for that! “Mexican People are salt of the earth” they have a great work ethic, and they are too proud for handouts! Welcome to America my Mexican Neighbors, President Trump has made more work for you and others! Don’t listen to Democrats lies, they want to turn America into the hell you fled from!

  16. Congress is finally starting to look over their shoulders huh. They know they screwed us so much we cant stand the sight of them….They made themselves thrones over us peasants…If they could they would write a law to say we cant even disagree with them. Pathetic corrupt animals.

  17. Just too coincidental that dems saying Trump is inviting violence agsinst Omar when he said nothing to invite violence and then this happens. I wouldnt be surprised that this was a planned coordinated setup by the left to make it look like Trump invited this! The left wing media and liberal media are corrupt and need to go to jail
