Lock him up: Ex-DC demorat staffer admits to doxing republicans, threatening witness

The “democratic political professional student” worked for U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) and previously worked for Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA). He also previously worked or was an intern with the office of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

As reported by NY Post: A former Democratic congressional staffer pleaded guilty Friday to federal charges after he posted leaked personal information about Republican senators on Wikipedia, then threatened a witness who caught him.

Jackson Cosko, 27, of the District of Columbia, pleaded guilty to five offenses related to his “doxing” the senators — uploading their personal information online — including computer fraud, making public restricted personal information, witness tampering and obstruction of justice.

Prosecutors said he went after the lawmakers after one senator fired him and he got upset with the others while watching testimony on sexual assault allegations during Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.

His targets included GOP Senate Judiciary Committee members Lindsey Graham, Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch, as well as Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul.

He faces nearly five years in prison when he is sentenced June 13.

Demorat intern arrested after doxxing GOP senators, faces 50 years in prison

Good. Make an example out of this unhinged demorat.

From Fox News: The arrest of a Democratic congressional intern this week for allegedly publishing the private information of three Republican lawmakers, with police investigating more possible incidents, underscores what has become an increasingly confrontational approach by the anti-Trump ‘resistance.’

Jackson Cosko, who recently worked as an unpaid intern for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, was arrested for posting the personal information of Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Orrin Hatch, R-Utah on Wikipedia — including their home addresses.

Fox News learned Wednesday that Capitol Hill police are investigating additional doxxing incidents involving at least two senators, including Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. It was not clear if Cosko — who worked with other Democratic lawmakers including Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., and former Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. — was involved.

Cosko had worked in a host of roles in the House and Senate, including as press assistant and legislative correspondent, according to his LinkedIn page.

Former Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” Thursday that the wide range of charges against Cosko, including witness tampering and burglary, suggests there could be more to the case than meets the eye.

“With seven different charges out there, it really does makes it sound like it’s more sophisticated and widespread because now you see Sen. Rand Paul is also having issues,” he said, although he added that it wasn’t clear if Cosko was connected to the Paul case.

While it was not clear what the motivation was behind the posting of personal information (known as “doxxing”), Graham, Lee and Hatch have been outspoken defenders of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid sexual assault allegations against him. The doxxing on Thursday came moments after Graham had scorched Senate Democrats in a fiery speech for what he called “an unethical sham” in their treatment of Kavanaugh.

The incident marks the latest in escalating attacks against Republican lawmakers and Trump administration officials — particularly in relation to the Kavanaugh controversy — by far left-wing activists, which have occasionally picked up the support of Democratic lawmakers.

A day after the doxxing, two female activists cornered Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., in an elevator on Friday and screamed at him, with one of them repeatedly demanding he look at her as she accused him of suggesting her own sexual assault “doesn’t matter.”

Moments later, Flake demanded an FBI investigation into the accusations against Kavanaugh — forcing GOP leaders, faced with little room for error on Senate votes, to accede. It was not clear if the dressing down caused Flake to waver, but he later told The Atlantic that the incident “struck a chord.”

Days earlier on Monday, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife Heidi were hounded out of a restaurant by protesters peppering the senator with questions about Kavanaugh and chanting “we believe survivors” and “cancel Kavanaugh.” His Democratic opponent in the Texas Senate race, Beto O’Rouke, condemned the incident and said his family “should be treated with respect.”

The tactic of hounding lawmakers and Trump officials out of restaurants became more prevalent in June, when White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen were driven out of restaurants amid the backlash over the separation of illegal immigrant families at the border.

That move was encouraged by Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., who days later called on supporters to confront Trump officials in public spaces.

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she told a crowd.

In July, Sen. Cory Booker, D-NJ., who recently compared himself to Thracian gladiator Spartacus, told supporters to go to Capitol Hill and “get in the face of some congresspeople.”

This week, Republicans have been pushing back against such tactics. Some have pointed to the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., at a Republican baseball practice last year as a reminder of how heated rhetoric can lead to much worse.

Kelley Paul, the wife of Sen. Paul, wrote in an open letter to Sen. Booker, saying that she now keeps a loaded gun by her bed after her family has “experienced violence and threats of violence at a horrifying level.”

“I would call on you to retract your statement,” she said. “I would call on you to condemn violence, the leaking of elected officials’ personal addresses (our address was leaked from a Senate directory given only to senators), and the intimidation and threats that are being hurled at them and their families.”

The Daily Caller reported that Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., and his wife were chased through Reagan National Airport by activists — who kept yelling at him even as he tried to use the bathroom.

On the Senate floor on Wednesday, Perdue blamed Democrats for inciting such behavior, and read quotes he said were inciting harassment of Republicans in public.

“This is America, but these are the tactics of the Brownshirts in Germany in the 1930s, Mr. President,” he said. “Unacceptable. Totally irresponsible.”

According to the Washington Examiner, Cosko could face 50 years in federal prison.

Rapper sparks outrage with new music video that shows him lynching a young white boy

xxxtentacion

Onfroy: Criminal who assaults a pregnant woman wants to “speak” for future generations

This 19-year-old rapper (real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy) is a piece of work who should be in jail. From Wikipedia:
“In 2014, Onfroy was sent to a youth detention center for a year on gun possession charges According to Onfroy, during his time in detention, the district attorney was attempting to try Onfroy as an adult for gun possession charges which, according to him, would have landed him 5-10 years in prison.
In July 2016, Onfroy was arrested and charged with robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. After posting the bail of $10,000 in early October of the same year, while awaiting trial, Onfroy was arrested again later that month on charges of false imprisonment, witness tampering, and aggravated battery of a pregnant victim. Onfroy was released from jail on bail on March 26, 2017 and his probation for robbery and assault with a deadly weapon started on March 27, 2017 and will last until March 26, 2023. Onfroy’s trial for aggravated battery of a pregnant victim was originally going to take place in May 2017 and has since been pushed back several times, now taking place on October 5, 2017.
Sick piece of garbage he is.
From Daily Mail: A rapper has been condemned over his latest music video which shows him lynching a young white boy.
XXXTentacion’s video for Look at Me shows him fitting a noose around the young blond-haired child’s neck and raising him off the ground on a stage. The child’s feet are seen twitching – a common phenomenon during hanging – before he goes limp.
Elsewhere in the video, XXXTentacion, 19, appears hanging himself along with two other black men. The video also includes reenactments of the historic, racially-charged killings of Emmett Till and Philando Castile.
The recent death of Heather Hyer, an anti-protester who was killed after being run over at an alt-right march in Charlottesville, Virginia, last month, was also depicted.
The rapper claims the video decries racial violence across the board and says the lynching scene  is a part of that. He insists he is trying to demonstrate what the lasting effects will be on the younger generation if the same violence continues.
But critics slammed him for using a child to make his point with such ‘disturbing’ imagery. ‘I’m actually disturbed at the video of XXXTentacion featuring a young boy being hanged. This is beyond a joke,’ said one person.
‘Don’t make excuses for this sickness, simulated violence towards children is not cool or progressive. Not even to make a point. It’s dangerous,’ they said.
‘I have a huge problem with xxxtentacion and his new video. It doesn’t have anything to do with equality what so ever,’ another said.
One person accused the rapper of inciting a ‘race war’.  
‘If the RACIST POS xxxtentacion gets his race war, who do you think will be left standing?’ one person said.
At the end of the video, the musician delivers a long message on racial violence and calls for it to come to an end for the sake of younger generations. 
‘Equity and equality. The end result we all, the ones that don’t want to live in misery, desire. The youth is never inspired to make a stand to make a difference so I will speak for them. Are you willing to risk your child’s future due to your own bigotry? The choice is yours but your child will not stand for the hate. This generation will be loved, nurtured, heard and understood,’ he said.
Some viewers appreciated the video and sided with him. ‘If you can’t comprehend what xxxtentacion meant with the look at me video maybe you’re just too stupid,’ said one.
‘He was simply trying to show how the next generation would be affected if race wars went on,’ another said.
XXXTentacion’s real name is Jahseh Onfrey. Earlier this week, he responded to domestic violence allegations in a series of profane-laced videos.
He was charged with aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and witness-tampering. In the clips, the rapper denied the charges and accused critics of plotting against his success, and threatened to ‘fk ya’ll little sisters in their throats’. 
‘They wanna crucify me, I ain’t having it, I’m not gonna be your f
king messiah,’ the rapper wrote in follow-up posts. ‘Y’all n****s bored.’
It’s unclear what the relationship was between the woman and XXXTentacion.
