Jacob Wohl Faked Death Threats Against Himself

Source: The Daily Beast

One came from a phony account the wingnut provocateur created and ran just before he was banned from Twitter.

Right-wing personality Jacob Wohl appears to have faked death threats against himself.

Wohl and fellow provocateur Laura Loomer went to Minneapolis last month to “investigate” whether their quest to prove that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) married her own brother—a charge based on flimsy blog comments that has been disproven.

Wohl’s videos to his fans were premised on the idea that Minneapolis is an incredibly dangerous place, and often featured him wearing a bulletproof vest. At one point in a new video about their trip, Wohl goes to a Minneapolis police station to report death threats he says he and his team have received since being in the city.

One of those threats came via direct message from a Twitter account called @Drakehomes612, who described himself as a Minneapolis “diversity coordinator.”

1. Wohl sucks at being a right-wing provocateur.

His ruses are laughably transparent. Minneapolis isn't a particularly dangerous city, and the one area he claims he got the death threat from isn't dangerous at all. It's near the U of M and is full of students and coffee shops.

10. Hipster Coffee Shops?

If you ever read Wohl's tweets, you know what dangerous places those could be.

Filing a false police report is still a crime even if you're a privileged little white male dilettante, no?

6. 'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett indicted on 16 felony counts by grand jury

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/empire-actor-jussie-smollett-indicted-16-felony-counts-grand-jury-n981236

"Empire" actor Jussie Smollett has been indicted by a grand jury in Chicago on 16 felony counts after allegedly lying to police about being the victim of a racist and homophobic hate crime, NBC News confirmed Friday.

Smollett was charged last month with felony disorderly conduct for the alleged false report he made with Chicago police on Jan. 29, according to the Cook County State's Attorney's Office. In it he claimed he was assaulted by two masked men who hurled racist and homophobic slurs.

Smollett was charged by a grand jury of 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct for making a false report, according to a criminal complaint.


There you go ... looks like Wohl should be facing serious charges

Who feels that he's not getting enough attention from anyone. There are days like this, when I feel happy I've ditched Social Media. Azzhats like this don't deserve any attention, from anyone.

19. Some people actually did

From his wiki....
The National Futures Association (NFA) banned Wohl for life in 2017. The NFA had received investor complaints about his activity, and upon completing its investigation, concluded that Wohl was guilty of refusing to cooperate with the NFA as required, misrepresenting investments and misleading investors.[3][14][15] Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) charged Wohl with 14 counts of securities fraud in the same year, and forced him to pay $32,919 in restitution.[16][17][14

That white boy needs a serious ass whooping & then an ass kicking

9. Suspicion was first raised

By pictures of Wohl wearing the "bullet proof jacket" that showed it to be cardboard painted black and held together by duct tape.

Jacob Wohl's idiocy nourishes my spirit. [...] He's the Florence Foster Jenkins of criminals and conmen, but he just wants it so bad.

"Jacob Wohl, The Teenage-Hedge Fund Manager, Has Been Ordered To Cease And Desist (2017)"

FINANCE
Jacob Wohl, The Teenage-Hedge Fund Manager, Has Been Ordered To Cease And Desist"

"Jacob Wohl, the 19-year-old “Wohl Of Wall Street” hedge fund manager, faces a pending action by the Arizona Securities Commission that accuses Wohl’s companies of violating the state’s securities laws.

The commission cites a number instances of alleged fraudulent activities by Wohl and his companies Wohl Capital Investment Group (WCIG), Nex Capital Management, LLC (NEX) and Montgomery Assets, Inc. (MAI) in the September 27, 2016, order. A hearing is scheduled for August 7, 2017, at the regulatory agency’s Phoenix office.

In response to the action from the Arizona Commission, Wohl told Benzinga in an emailed statement, "All of the allegations made by the Arizona Corporation Commission are based on false statements made by the disgruntled former investor to the commission, and are not supported by any of the documentary evidence in the case. The investor was a well heeled, accredited investor, and was provided with and signed all of the necessary risk disclosures."
