He reminds me of some Muslim zealots who go nuts if the profit Mohammed is criticized or parodied. He was seemingly normal: an insurance salesman and an aspiring country-western musician. Now he's looking at about a decade in jail. Btw, I wasn't familiar with the The Good Information Foundation, the target of his ire, so I linked to them below.

GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. (WBTV) - A North Carolina man was arrested for threatening to kill a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) officer and vowing to execute members of a fact-checking organization if they didn’t cease and desist defamation and slander of ‘MAGA Republicans’ and former president Donald Trump.

According to the United States District Court, a complaint was first filed on Sept. 19, 2022, when Stephen ‘Jike’ Williams emailed The Good Information Foundation, a non-profit organization. He demanded them to ‘cease and desist all defamation and slander of MAGA Republicans and Donald Trump.’



“This is Treason, an act of war and we will treat you accordingly. You have till [sic] the end of the month to print a retraction whistle blow on yourself or I will shut you down personally,” the mail added.

    As antiSwamp people have been noting here for years, the so-called and self-proclaimed, uh, fact-checkers are running a scam. We share the frustration of good ol "Jikes." M-M-M-M-M-M-Millions of people do. And, we each work our frustration out in our own ways.

    pb, for one, laughs at all of you who take the fact-checkers seriously. Bahahahahahahahahahaha!

    It’s not that fact checkers are running a scam, it’s that they are operating in the real reality-based world. You and Jikes have your own reality. “Facts have a liberal bias.” —Colbert

    Nah.

    In the face of all the moronic mumbling by "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap," the keepers of truth remain mute. Facts ain't what it's about. It's all TDS.


  4. by Curt_Anderson on November 29, 2022 11:54 am
    As I said, you have your own reality. There isn't a word of truth in your post above. At least not in the fact-based world.

    Regular guy Joe Biden doesn't have dementia, no matter how you much wish it were the case. He astutely recognized the prevailing political winds. He correctly made the case for democracy and against the Kari Lakes and others who would undermine it prior to the recent mid-terms.



  5. by HatetheSwamp on November 29, 2022 12:02 pm

    Perhaps Team Joe can supply a copy of his W2 from his days as a truck driver about whichhe waxes nostalgic from time to time. Oh, from the Congressional Record detailing the vote when he got that Student Loan Forgiveness bill passed through Congress by 1 or 2 votes...or, didn't Rachel report on that one? Bahahahahahahahahahaha!


  6. by Curt_Anderson on November 29, 2022 12:52 pm
    Wait, let me get this straight. You, a repeat Trump voter, are concerned about Joe Biden's W2?! It took a decision by the Supreme Court to unseal Trump's tax returns. Trump repeatedly promised to release his tax returns for years.



  7. by HatetheSwamp on November 29, 2022 1:16 pm

    Trump Trump Trump Trump
    Trump Trump Trump Trump
    Trump Trump Trump Trump...TRUMP!

    Any time you have to settle for comparing your guy to OrangeMan?, you lose!


  8. by Curt_Anderson on November 29, 2022 1:29 pm
    It's Trump, Trump, Trump because Trump won't follow the path of past presidents by quietly retiring. You lose whenever Trump refuses to accept his election loss, announces his candidacy, dines with bigot crackpots, steals and hides classified documents, et cetera.

    Mitt is right. Trump hangs over the GOP like a gargoyle


  9. by HatetheSwamp on November 29, 2022 1:52 pm

    The difference here is that you support the Former Trucker. I don't support Trump AND, I think Trump is despicable.


  10. by Curt_Anderson on November 29, 2022 2:00 pm
    The difference is that you voted for Trump twice and you would still vote for despicable Trump over Biden given the chance.


  11. by HatetheSwamp on November 29, 2022 2:10 pm

    Whereas, if the Flatulent Fool's not in jail, you'll vote for Trump over him.


  12. by Curt_Anderson on November 29, 2022 2:17 pm
    That's what I mean when I say you live in an alternate reality. It's only in the Trump cult's bizarro world that Biden will be found guilty of a crime and sent to prison. Maybe after the House Republican come up with nothing against Joe Biden, you might reluctantly accept reality. But I am not counting on it.


  13. by HatetheSwamp on November 29, 2022 2:30 pm

    I was being lighthearted, there, Curt. Obviously, even if this Biden Crime Family thing goes as nightmarishly as possible for the Ol Fart, he'd still be a looooooooong time away from going on trial. But, if even half of what Miranda Devine is reporting is true, Joe may be watching 024 from the sidelines in shame.

    Oh! curt. A friend of mine used to work for JPMC (she now works for another bank), and she laughed at you for thinking that banks just write SARs at a whim and would have erroneous information in them. She also called you stupid.


  15. by Curt_Anderson on November 29, 2022 7:01 pm
    OD, I have a friend who is a psychiatrist and he thinks you’re stupid for doubting the bank policy institute’s findings:

    How many SARs would a large bank file in a year?

    A BPI study found that, in 2017, a sample of the largest banks reviewed approximately 16 million alerts, filed over 640,000 SARs, and received feedback from law enforcement on a median of 4% of those SARs. Ultimately, this means that 90-95% of the individuals that banks report on were likely innocent.

    How many of these SARs are really illegal activity versus false positives?

    Our data indicate that about 4 percent of SARs result in any follow-up from law enforcement. A tiny subset of these results in an arrest and ultimately a conviction.


  16. by oldedude on November 29, 2022 9:31 pm
    So you're equating someone that doesn't work in the banking system and like you, knows nothing about SARS or it's requirements with two people that have worked int the industry for a total of 22 years.

    that'sreallyfukkingawesome.

    Just like you "think" like an operator. Or a brain surgeon. or a microbiologist.

    You just proved your lack of any compassion or understanding of anything.

    What? were you an Insurance salesman? maybe a used car salesperson?

    You're not convincing on any level I can think of in the real world.

    In fairness, I was stunned at the hundreds of hours of learning about banking to actually talk about it. It is much like Philippian Divorce law. If you can explain that in detail to me, then you tell me you understand that. Nothing more.
    You're a bigger fake than that guy that claimed he was an Intelligence from outside Ottawa. Perfectly full of crap with nothing to show for it.

    I'll say it. You're a fraud. simple as that.


  17. by oldedude on November 29, 2022 9:49 pm
    And you're not to be trusted as a poster. As a poser? for sure.

    My point is that I didn't know that much about banking law when I first started. And I started with a dope case (which after a so-so conviction, went to gobal child sex abuse and child porn (most less than 6 years old).

    I learned about their banking systems, and learned about how they thought they were getting around it.

    So there are two reasons I can think of that you are fighting me on this.
    1. You believe everything on the internet is true.
    2. You don't believe that sexual exploitation is a real thing. I think that's why you love a clear border so much. You've been told about the repeated rape of girls and women is going on with the coyotes.
    3. You have never accepted that is a problem. I find that "interesting" as someone that has walked the border and seen the girls with their thighs cut out from the two-legged coyotes, and the four-legged coyotes have been eating on them. some of them were alive when the two legged azzholes left them to the four legged coyotes. imagine your wife being eaten by a pack of dogs trying to get warm meat before she died.

    You seem to believe that a suspicious activity report is tantamount to evidence of wrongdoing. Besides the anecdote that you supposedly had with a banker friend, show me anywhere with these reports result in anything more than a tiny fraction of convictions.

    I say SAR less than 5% of the time are deemed worth looking at and followed up by law-enforcement. and a much smaller number, results in arrests and convictions. I gave you a link earlier from a banking institute which says how in frequently SARS result in convictions. Below is another source making the same point. They liken it to needles in a haystack.

    The name should tell you what you need to know. They are merely suspicious activity reports. Banks are incentivized to file even questionable reports as they could be penalized if they missed reporting actual nefarious activity. These reports are submitted in the millions. Commonsense to tell you that there is a huge number false positives. I sincerely doubt that your banker friend can tell you with a straight face that a significant number of her SAR resulted in convictions.

    I'm not going to repost all the things that people that actually have worked with them say. It's useless to try to educate you on something you admit you know little about, using a single source with zero support. I'm done. You're getting laughed at. seriously. I actually tried to talk about them factually and you rejected that in lieu of a group I've never heard of after working in the genre for over 10 years.

    If there are false positives, it's the fault of the researcher, not the financial institution. If you query the name and ONLY use that with no supporting documents, it's the researcher's fault. If it's a case, I cannot see that would ever be done.

    You're worse than conservatives "clinging to their guns and Bibles." You're clinging to your one questionable "document" for dear life. It's just pig ignorant (thank you pondy).


  20. by oldedude on November 30, 2022 12:52 pm
    "Banks are incentivized to file even questionable reports as they could be penalized if they missed reporting actual nefarious activity."

    Cite? anywhere except for the one fraudulent citation you have.

    Commonsense to tell you that there is a huge number false positives.
    First. DEFINE FALSE POSITIVE.
    Secondly. You're "commonsense" isn't. You don't know enough about the subject to actually talk about it.

    I sincerely doubt that your banker friend can tell you with a straight face that a significant number of her SAR resulted in convictions.
    That's not their job and why does it matter? I asked you before and you wouldn't answer then either. I went into this in depth. If you didn't read, not my fault. If you didn't understand, and didn't ask, not my fault. Read up on your subject before you make an arse of yourself.

    GRC forums is a free form forum, much like this one. In the paper they cited, "Financial Crime and Fraud Report 2022" they didn't understand the difference between fraud prevention (a phrase out of the 1990's) and their AML systems. That should tell you they don't know the basics of banking and the AML requirements.

    Also, a response to a quote in there. "“The problem is you don’t know the end-to-end story, you don’t have a linear view of transactions”- David Rowe-Francis

    That "may" be a true statement, although 99% of the time, that information is searchable by the bank, as they have a right to know and understand where the money comes from and where it's going. That doesn't matter if it's a credit card, cash or wire. IF the bank only reports their physical part of the transaction, you still have supporting documents from other banks, or you can request them. He (and therefore you) 'ass ume" you only look at one SAR and charge from that, which is totally inaccurate.

    If you actually read the SAR from JPMC on Hunter, it's a good account of a transaction. Would I use it to charge? Not if it was the only evidence. I would get the CTRs from it (those are generally listed on the attachments on the SAR). With the CTRs, you could see how the transactions went from (in this case) a person that was listed on the sanction list, to a US bank. To me, that's not suspicious, it's illegal. But it's ILLEGAL (and stupid) for the bank to accuse anyone of that. They're not lawyers, they're bankers, thusly, it's a SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY REPORT.
