'We will surround the motherf---ing White House': Feds arrest suburban Chicago man for threatening i


Louis Capriotti, 45, of Chicago Heights, has been charged with transmitting a threat, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office.

By Jon Seidel and Sam Charles Jan 12, 2021, 1:55pm CST

Louis Capriotti allegedly called for months, screaming as he left voicemails for members of Congress filled with profanity, racism and vague threats.

Then, late last month, the feds say one call from the Chicago Heights man amounted to a direct threat on next week’s inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. They say Capriotti claimed that, if people “think that Joe Biden is going to put his hand on the Bible and walk into that f---ing White House on Jan. 20th, they’re sadly f---ing mistaken.”

“We will surround the motherf---ing White House and we will kill any motherf---ing Democrat that steps on the motherf---ing lawn,” Capriotti, 45, allegedly said in a voicemail left for a member of Congress from New Jersey.

Tennessee Gov. Lee [FINALLY!!] acknowledges Biden as president-elect


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Republican Gov. Bill Lee says his administration has begun working with the transition team of Democratic President-elect Joe Biden.

Lee’s remarks Friday marked the first time the governor has acknowledged that Biden will be the next president.

Lee told reporters that he had spoken with members of Biden’s transition team the previous day about Tennessee’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The governor was among many Republicans nationwide who refused to acknowledge that Biden had won, as President Donald Trump continuously repeated unfounded claims of election fraud.

Slow on the uptake much? I womder if he will receive death threats now?

Daily Beast: Patriots' Bill Belichick Turns Down Trump's Medal of Freedom Offer


New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick will not accept President Trump’s award of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, he announced in a statement Monday. The statement, first announced by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, comes after media reports on Sunday that Trump had invited the six-time Super Bowl winner to the White House to receive the nation’s highest civilian honor. “The tragic events of last week occurred and the decision has been made not to move forward with the award,” Belichick wrote in the statement. The coach and the president are longtime friends, with the former writing a congratulatory note to the latter after his 2016 election. Belichick’s public break with Trump comes on the heels of several companies freezing the president out after he helped incite a riot in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
