Man Arrested Over Bomb Threats To Jewish Groups Is Former Intercept Reporter And Anti-Trump, Bernie Voter

Tyler Durden's picture

U.S. prosecutors in New York arrested a St. Louis man on Friday in connection with at least eight bomb threats made against Jewish organizations across the country. Juan Thompson, 31, was taken into custody on Friday morning in St. Louis and was expected to make an initial court appearance there later in the day, according to Reuters. It was not immediately clear whether investigators believe Thompson is responsible for all of the more than 100 threats that have been made by phone to Jewish community centers in dozens of states since January.

 Police said last weekend that about 100 headstones were toppled at a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia, about a week after a Jewish cemetery in St. Louis was vandalized.

Previously, President Trump, Israeli officials and Jewish groups have all condemned the surge in intimidation as well as cases of vandalism targeting Jewish cemeteries. On several occasions Trump was accused of being indirectly responsible for the surge in anti-Jewish sentiment due to his "polarizing rhetoric" and slammed for his question whether the attacks were driven by "false flag" reasons; as it turns out, at least in this specific, the narrative was wrong again and Trump may have been correct once again.

In a criminal complaint filed in federal court in Manhattan, authorities accused Thompson of making at least eight threats, mostly by email. The New York Times reports that Juan made some threats in his own name and others in the name of an ex-girlfriend. The full court document (previewed below) shows the full details of charges filed against him.


The smoking gun tweet:

As Reuters adds, based on Thompson's Twitter account, which provided some of the evidence cited in the criminal complaint, the defendant appears to be a former reporter for The Intercept, a website focused on national security and personal privacy founded in the aftermath of the Edward Snowden revelations.

Thompson was fired from the website last year for allegedly fabricating quotes and sources, The Intercept said in February 2016.

The Intercept recently discovered a pattern of deception in the actions of a staff member. The employee, Juan Thompson, was a staff reporter from November 2014 until last month. Thompson fabricated several quotes in his stories and created fake email accounts that he used to impersonate people, one of which was a Gmail account in my name.


An investigation into Thompson’s reporting turned up three instances in which quotes were attributed to people who said they had not been interviewed. In other instances, quotes were attributed to individuals we could not reach, who could not remember speaking with him, or whose identities could not be confirmed. In his reporting Thompson also used quotes that we cannot verify from unnamed people whom he claimed to have encountered at public events. Thompson went to great lengths to deceive his editors, creating an email account to impersonate a source and lying about his reporting methods.

According to Breaking 911, which also has confirmed Juan Thompson’s identity, describing his profile as being “full of anti-semitic and racist tweets.” The outlet lists several anti-Trump tweets from Thompson.

In another racially charged tweet, Thompson claims "Make no mistake. Trump is a developer. This is his and the white establishment's effort to remove black ppl from the southside of Chicago"

According to his twitter profile, Juan Thompson also apparently voted for Bernie Sanders.

News of his arrest has resulted in fierce outcry from conservatives, who had previously been blamed by liberals for the bomb threats. Following the threats, various Jewish groups said the vandalism and threats were a sign that anti-Semitic groups have been emboldened by Trump's election. Ironically, the suspect may end up being a person who was an ideological opposite to Trump.

And with that, it's time to change the "anti-Trump" narrative once again.

So when are we GONNA ARREST Israeli Jew NETANYAHOO for actually BOMBING innocent civilians in Gaza?

Jews are NOT semites. They're pretending to be Hebrews so they can steal Palestine after having lost their homeland Khazaria.

That cry-wolf accusation is getting old, Joos.

The victimizers of the world camouflage themselves as victims.

World War 1: Britain was losing the war against Germany. The Zionists stepped in and bribed President Wilson to get the US into the war to help them. In return, the Jews asked the British Empire to deed them Palestine to create Israel. Their wish was granted in the form of the Balfour Declaration of 1917, which cost the world 18 million dead.

During that same period, the Jewish Bolsheviks, who took over the Russian government in the 1910s, killed 66 million Christians, including 200,000 members of the Christian clergy, and destroyed 40,000 churches.

World War 2: The Zionists fomented that war (just like they’re doing today with Iran and other countries in the Middle East), so that European Jews could feel threatened. The deception worked as European Jews fled in droves to Palestine and took over the homes of Palestinians, who were evicted at gunpoint and then either massacred or driven out of their land into neighboring Arab countries. With enough Jews on the ground, Israel was created in 1948 at a cost of 80 million dead.

World War On Terror: Jewish neocons, in cahoots with their bought-and-paid-for politicians in the US government, perpetrated their act of terrorism on 9/11. Then they conveniently blamed it on Muslims so as to obtain a green light to destroy the Middle East using the armies of the US and NATO and the terrorist groups they finance, with the ultimate view to creating Greater Israel. So far, the death toll is over 3 million, including Christians.

World War 3: With Russia protecting Syria and Iran from Israel’s Machiavellian design, will the Zionists succeed in bringing the world once again to the brink of disaster to create Greater Israel?

Well, I don't totally agree with that. I am of the school that believes they are an admixture of semite and European. But don't identify as European. I have examples in my own family that reinforces this belief. However, yes they are intent on stealing Palestine. I say go for it. I want them to have a homeland when we (Americans) expel them.

so you say, but I'm not going to click on your lame website.

Stay on topic. This story is fun. Black Muslim accuses ex white girlfriend of making death threats in his name. She has to be overjoyed that this OJ wannabe is going to prison.

@ stizzass,

I'm still not going to click on his lame website. Whose not on topic? Even David Duke now rejects the Khazarian hypothesis. My first cousin married a jew. She "converted" to judaism (probably Reform, never talked to her in-depth on it). So her sons are not technically jews. But they each married jewish women. So her grandchildren are jews technically. This is how it works. At the other end of the spectrum (higher end), they marry into the aristocracy. Either way, a European admixture results.

stupid mud sharking cunt does not have the intellectual capacity to learn anything from this.

Exactly, Semite means brown skinned in older dictionaries. They plan to get Khazaria back, but need to destroy Russia first.

This story will never make the front page of NYT or WAPO.  Progressives bury the evil that is committed in their name and fabricate stories to discredit conservatives.  What say we shut down the MSM?

"These fake news helped Trump get elected instead on Clinton", of course so. Her loss had nothing to do with her poor popularity already before the alleged Russian hackings. You just got one weak point in the hypothesis. The authenticity of the news material was not disputed, but an outrage rose for sharing those details with voters. The election became rigged, because people received correct information?

Get right out of town, you mean the Hate propaganda is being staged by the people that are accusing others of being racist and hateful? That's just crazy talk /s. Getting really old now MSM.

The MSM will ignore this fact.

That, my fine friends, constitutes a conspiracy.

Only shocking thing is that a leftie would get arrested for doing something like this.  After all he was identifying as a pain in the arse at the moment.  All he needs is a safe place.  For a designated number of years.
