Man charged with threatening to kill Biden

A New Mexico man is facing a federal charge for allegedly threatening to kill President Joe Biden and others in text messages he sent to people in two states. John Benjamin Thornton is charged with using interstate commerce communications to send a threat to injure another person. The rambling texts allegedly from Thornton provided as evidence in a criminal complaint include statements that he was "taking leadership of revolutionary Army called the 3%ers," an apparent reference to the anti-government Three Percenters group.

According to the complaint, Thornton, calling himself a "revolutionary war general," texted: "5 stars after I execute Joe Biden for Treason."
The messages also claim that a Canadian computer company was using a device to "Tunnel into the Brainwaves of ALL Methamphetamine users Brainwaves, globally." ...
and added, "My ex wife is a traitor and is likely to be executed by my new government."

The FBI said the messages were sent from a phone owned by Thornton and
included a photo of him.

Thornton is being held without bond, according to Doa Ana County Jail records, and he had not been appointed an attorney as of Wednesday afternoon. Thornton is scheduled to appear remotely for a federal court hearing Friday morning.

8. That's the first "duck lips" mug shot I have ever seen.

Somebody is really full of himself. He fits right in with the MAGA crowd: malignant narcissist and deluded.
