KANNAPOLIS, NC – An investigation that started with the discovery of an abandoned van inside of a bank parking lot unveiled numerous allegations against a 19-year-old man who was already in police custody.
That man, identified as 19-year-old Alexander Hillel Treisman, is alleged to have been planning an assassination against Joe Biden, possibly plotting other error attacks and was also alleged to have been in possession of child pornography.

It all started back in late May when police came upon an abandoned van at the Fifth Third Bank in Kannapolis, North Carolina, where bank employees had asked the Kannapolis Police Department to have it towed from the property.
After police towed the vehicle, a subsequent search revealed several items of concern.
Police were said to have found a AR-15-style rifle, seven additional guns, ammunition, materials used to make explosives along with books on how to fashion them, over half-a-million dollars and various sketches of planes flying into buildings, as well as swastikas.

Investigators later discovered his obsession with mass shootings, terrorism and a post whether to “kill Joe Biden.” @wsoctv pic.twitter.com/Au1YhPaKlj

After the van had been towed, Treisman went to the bank looking for the van – which is likely how police caught onto him.
Police arrested Treisman after he showed up asking about the van, and authorities also then searched the vehicle he used to drive to the bank.
A search of the vehicle uncovered two additional guns and three driver’s licenses from California, Florida and Washington.
Treisman was initially charged with carrying a concealed weapon, but police believed it was necessary to get the FBI involved.
After searching through various electronic devices said to belong to Treisman, investigators were said to have found both videos and images of child pornography.
But there’s more to this sordid story than that – Treisman is alleged to have written a note in 2019 detailing a proposed plan to commit a mass shooting on either Black Friday or Christmas at a mall food court.
Between the months of March and May of 2020, Treisman was said to have been searching for information online about presidential candidate Joe Biden – namely his home address.
He also began looking up information around that time for respective state gun laws, rifle accessories and how to obtain night vision goggles.
Court documents say that Treisman at one point traveled to a Wendy’s location just 4 miles away from Biden’s home and investigators also found “a checklist note ending with ‘execute’”.
Documents also say that Treisman had posted on an internet forum about hating “complacent American people” and expressed a desire to “save” someone named “Bernie”:
“My hatred is for the complacent American people who will turn u in for their own satisfaction. But aside from former goals, my eyes on the future. If anything I have to save Bernie.”
Treisman posted that sentiment on Reddit days after Bernie Sanders suspended his presidential campaign earlier in 2020, according to the Washington Post.
This notion has led people to believe Treisman was a Bernie Sanders supporter that was disheartened to see him drop from the presidential race.

When speaking with investigators, Treisman said that “he had an interest in terrorist incidents and mass shootings,” and some friends and family members had stopped talking to him when he joked about incidents like 9/11 or other terrorist attacks.
Currently, Treisman has only been charged with child pornography-related offenses, but it would not be surprising to see more charges forthcoming.
While housed at the Cabarrus County Jail, Treisman was said to have received a phone call from his mother where she suggested that he jump bail, essentially suggesting that if Treisman were ever afforded bail, she suggested he never appear for court and try to disappear.
It seems that Alexander Hillel Treisman, arrested for planning to assassinate Biden, was actually an anti-Trump, pro-Hillary, pro-Obama/Biden, Bernie bro.https://t.co/gkMvc8vKkM

Investigators reportedly found evidence that could have enabled such a scheme, as they found a Polish passport with Treisman’s face edited into it and also a power bill and rental agreement for an apartment in Quebec, Canada.
Taking all that into consideration, a judge cited all the above evidence as to why Treisman will remain in custody and not be afforded bail at this time.

Meantime, in Texas, authorities recently arrested two would-be terrorists who are alleged to have devised a plot to bomb Trump Tower. For more on that, we invite you to:
SAN ANTONIO, TX – Two craven traitors, Kristopher Sean Matthews of Elgin, South Carolina, and Jaylyn Christopher Molina, of Cost, Texas, were arrested Monday the 21st for conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

The two men, who also go by the Muslim names “Ali Jibreel” and “Abdur Rahim” pledged allegiance to the terrorist group known as ISIS, also described as ISIL by former President Barack Hussein Obama.
Their communications on a secretive chat board were intercepted by the FBI, who initiated an investigation to discover their identities and neutralize the threat posed by their plot.
Matthews/Jibreel used an encrypted chat service last year to locate an ISIS member in Syria who would help him travel to Syria, where he could recruit volunteers to participate in his plot to commit terrorist atrocities in the United States. Molina/Rahim joined the chat in April, and posted a manual on how to use an AK-47 rifle.
The pair discussed a number of plans and targets in an effort to narrow their focus to a target that would “take a lot of casualties” so that they could “defeat them” (meaning non-Muslims and Americans, presumably).
Matthews suggested attacking government centers instead of malls or other locations likely to have “innocent children”, though this distinction in murder target does them little credit.

It also is nonsensical, given the fact that any government building might contain young children also, as part of a day care facility on-site, or children accompanying parents to conduct business there.
Some of the targets discussed were: New York’s Trump Tower, the White House, Social Security offices, the Stock market, CIA headquarters, FBI headquarters, and the DEA.
According to chats posted by Molina:
“Let it be clear, I am against America,” and “America is my enemy.”
In other words, these two men wanted to murder any American in the vicinity of their terror targets. It could have been anyone.
They didn’t care much who they killed, though they were aware of the PR disadvantage of killing children who might get in their way. Much better to kill the parents.
These charming gentlemen, like others before them, set out on a path of destruction, death, and treason so that they could support the death cult ISIS. It is good they were captured before they did any harm.
The FBI did their job well in this case and should be applauded for neutralizing the threat posed by these two ISIS adherents.
What is amazing about this case is that their plots, as bad as they were, pale in comparison to what domestic terror groups like the Marxist Black Lives Matter (BLM) and the Fascist group Antifa have already done in the last few months.
Before the advent of liberal-inspired terror attacks on cities such as Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, and New York City, ISIS and other Muslim terror groups were thought of as the greatest terror-related threat to Americans.
They inspired the 9/11 attacks, the destruction of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, and hundreds of other attacks around the world. ISIS even claimed credit for the 2017 Stephen Paddock shooting in Las Vegas that killed 61 and injured over 800.
Despite the shocking death and injury counts of individual attacks committed by Muslim extremists, liberal extremists are rapidly gaining ground on them for number of attacks, extent of property damage, economic devastation, injuries, and murder.
Why exactly did Mainstream Media not report on this ISIS plot?

More importantly, they have succeeded so well at their goal of projecting terror into the hearts of Americans, that businesses and residents of cities targeted by riots are moving out in record numbers.
It is great to see misanthropic miscreants like Matthews/Jibreel and Molina/Rahim arrested for their conspiracy to commit terrorist crimes at some date in the future.
It would also be great to see the people responsible for attacks that have already been carried out, in plain view of law enforcement, arrested as well. So far, the leaders of BLM, Antifa, and affiliated groups, remain free. They need to be treated the same as any other terroristic group.
