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.

Following news of Juan’s arrest, speculation was rampant on Twitter that this was the same Juan Thompson that was fired from The Intercept for fabricating sources.

Democratic Party Suffers Nervous Breakdown In Philly: The Inside Story

Actress Eva Longoria called Hillary “the most qualified presidential candidate ever.” Did you hear that, folks? The most qualified EVER!

The Democratic National Convention was almost literally a disaster area.

Bernie Sanders suspended all party rules on the floor of the convention to personally nominate Hillary Clinton by a voice vote. Left-wing protesters rampaged in the streets. Pro-Bernie delegates walked off the convention floor in protest. Agitators seized the mainstream media’s control center against an outnumbered police force. Speakers were booed. Green Party candidate Jill Stein crashed the event and emerged as the new Bernie Sanders in the general election. A man set himself on fire stomping on a burning American flag.

America now has a real two-party system: one party is the Populist Nationalists. The other party is the political class. The Democratic Party is the political class.

Breitbart News special correspondents rode into Philly as the Wikileaks DNC email revelations rocked the city and the world. The DNC rigged the primary fight for Hillary Clinton, actively colluding against Bernie Sanders. And Bernie just sat in his balcony underneath the Bloomberg Politics banner and smiled and took it.

Here’s what happened:

Hillary

Clinton gave a mediocre speech obsessed with Donald Trump.

“He wants to divide us from the rest of the world,” she said, pushing globalism against Trump’s nationalism.

“We will not ban a religion,” she said. She loudly ranted at awkward times in her speech, like when she was reciting the job titles of teachers and doctors and police officers (etc. etc.) who can fix the country in addition to Trump, who said that “I alone can fix it.”

Sanders Fans Plan DNC ‘Fart-In’ Protest of Clinton Nomination

Using flatulence as a protest tool was, according to the Daily Kos, apparently the brainchild of Saul D. Alinsky, who coincidentally corresponded with Clinton while she was writing her 1969 Wellesley College thesis on his theories of community organizing.

Former Philadelphia health commissioner Dr. Walter H. Tsou can’t help but let out a light-hearted laugh when he talks about flatulence.

But for Tsou, the reason why he and others — including some Democratic delegates who support former candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders — plan to eat beans and pass gas at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia is anything but a laughing matter.

“It’s a whimsical way of raising a protest,” Tsou told NBC News. “There’s a lot of things that stink about this whole democratic primary process.”

Billed as a “fart-in,” the coordinated assault on the olfactory system is scheduled for July 28 both inside the Wells Fargo Center and outside on the street, at the moment presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accepts the party’s nomination, organizer Cheri Honkala told NBC News.

“For us, this whole thing is a farce, it’s a charade,” said Honkala, who was Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s vice-president pick in 2012. “They’re creating the illusion of democracy in a very important historical location, Philadelphia, and we’re really saddened by that.”

Bernie Sanders Tells Supporters To Knock Off The Violence (Video)

Sanders said, “Any person who is a Bernie Sanders supporter, please, do not in any way, shape or form engage in violence.”

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) asked his supporters not to engage in violence in response to anti-Trump mobs attacking Donald Trump supporters as they left his rally in California last week.

Partial transcript as follows:

TAPPER: I want to ask you about some of the violence we’ve seen by anti-Trump protesters against supporters of Trump. Some of these people who have been very violent have been seen with your signs, Bernie Sanders signs, chanting your name. Do you condemn the violence?

SANDERS: I condemn it, absolutely. And let’s be very clear: We have millions and millions of people who are supporting us, and I want to make it clear that any person who is a Bernie Sanders supporter, please, do not in any way, shape or form engage in violence. That is absolutely not what this campaign is about.

SANDERS v. TRUMP DEBATE accepted by both candidates

Sanders quickly responded with a tweet reading, “Game On. I look forward to debating Donald Trump in California before the June 7th primary.”

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and the socialist senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders, have both agreed to debate each other.

Last night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Trump was asked if he would consider holding a debate with Sanders. Trump responded, “If he paid a sum toward charity I would love to do that,” said the business mogul, noting that a Sanders vs. Trump debate “would have such high ratings.”

Latinos, Bernie Sanders Fans Protest Hillary Clinton in L.A. (Video)

Protesters took to the streets outside East Los Angeles College on Thursday to demonstrate against Democrat presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton, who was inside the college gymnasium for a Cinco de Mayo campaign rally.

Dozens of protesters — including from the Black Lives Matter movement and the East L.A. Brown Berets, some of whom sported masks — waved Mexican flags and brandished signs with slogans including “Clinton Crime Family,” “Hillary for Prison 2016” and “Bernie 4 President.”

Clinton was in the predominantly Hispanic neighborhood of Monterey Park to host the evening rally, where she called for comprehensive immigration reform and warned that “loose cannon” GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump would create a “deportation force to round up millions of people.”

Clinton also said that her first priority as president would be “creating good jobs” and “raising income,” and vowed to follow California’s lead in raising the federal minimum wage.

Thousands of Clinton supporters stood in a line that snaked around the block to wait their turn to enter the rally, but many were turned away as the gymnasium filled quickly.

Sanders hugs undocumented immigrants onstage at rally (Video)

After hugging and shaking hands with the two men, Sanders allowed one of the supporters to approach the microphone. “Viva Bernie!” he said to loud cheers.

Bernie Sanders invited two undocumented immigrants on stage at a rally in Louisville, Ky., shortly before winning the Indiana primary Tuesday night.

“There are 11 million undocumented people in this country, and I have talked to many of them,” the Democratic presidential hopeful told supporters as laughter and applause interrupted his speech.

“There’s one right here,” the Vermont senator said, pointing to an individual in the crowd.

“There’s two,” he added before inviting the supporters on stage.

Poverty: A ‘death sentence’ in America?

Chuck Norris reveals ‘1 more reason why socialism is wrong message’>

Though I disagree completely with his socialistic platform, I agree with presidential candidate Bernie Sanders about one thing: As I wrote a year ago, America is not ready for the real Hillary.

Bernie also said last week in Baltimore that America’s poverty stricken population face conditions similar to those in “distressed cities in Nigeria, India, China, and South Africa” and other struggling areas around the world, according to RealClearPolitics.

Sanders went on to say, “Fifteen neighborhoods in Baltimore have lower life expectancies than North Korea. Two have a higher infant mortality rate than the West Bank in Palestine … Baltimore teenagers between the ages of 15 and 19 face poorer health conditions and a worse economic outlook than those in distressed cities in Nigeria, India, China and South Africa.”

Sanders concluded, “Poverty in Baltimore, and around this country, is a death sentence.”

I couldn’t disagree more.

One ginormous fact that Sanders overlooks is that, unlike every country he mentioned, America offers more roads and opportunities to get out of poverty than any other country on the planet. To liken America to the other countries he cited is simply to ignore American exceptionalism and completely disregard the very American dream our founders established.

Bill Clinton Blames Obama For The Rise Of Trump And Sanders (Video)

This is not the first time Clinton has criticized Obama’s presidency on the campaign trail. In March, Clinton called for people to get to a “point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us.”

Bill Clinton blamed Barack Obama’s economy for the rise of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders while campaigning for his wife Hillary.

During a press gaggle in East Hartford, Connecticut on Monday, Clinton said, “The country is doing better than everybody else in the world, but 80% of the country has not had a pay raise since the crash.”

“Therefore there is great fear that we can’t return to broad-based prosperity and that has lit a lot of the fires that have helped Mr. Trump on the right and Sen. Sanders on the left,” the former president said.

Adding, “It is totally predictable,” as a aide to Clinton cut off the reporter asking a follow up question.
