Man arrested in Kannapolis with van full of guns and explosives, researched killing Joe Biden

Source: WBTV

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (WBTV) – A man was arrested in Kannapolis with a van full of guns and explosives with plans to carry out an act of terrorism, including trying to assassinate Joe Biden.

An order filed in federal court earlier this month outlines the plans by a man identified as Alexander Hillel Treisman, who also used the alias Alexander S. Theiss.

In the order, a federal magistrate judge outlined the reasons why Treisman should continue to be held in jail on child pornography charges.

Although, Treisman currently faces pornography charges, the order details a list of factors related to the defendant’s plans for a possible act of terror as grounds he should remain in custody.

According to the order, Treisman was arrested in late May, after employees at a bank in Kannapolis called police to investigate a white van that had been left in the parking lot.

“Through the windows, KPD officers observed an AR-15 style rifle, a box for a Taurus .380 handgun, a cannister of the explosive material Tannerite, and a box of 5.56 caliber ammunition,” the order said, referencing testimony from a FBI agent who investigated the case as part of the Joint Terrorism Task Force.

16. He was arrested in late May.

It isn't like this was recently. He's got so many charges against him now that they'll never let him bail out. At least I hope not.

Sounds like a fine guy, child porn plus political assignation. One of those good people on the other side.

Child porn and terrorism. I hope they throw the book at him.

7. 5.56 rounds. Caliber refers to hundredths of an inch, which would be 223.

However, 5.56mm refers to a NATO round that has much higher power.

9. Not really

You can fire .223 in a 5.56 rifle. The only difference is 5.56 ammo is loaded a little hotter to military spec, running about 150 feet per second faster (3050 vs 3200).

Inside of 300 yd you don't see a difference in terminal effect.

10. Am I right in thinking that it's thousandths pf an inch, and .223 ("point two-two-three")?

8. None of those things are illegal to own

Tannerite isn't even classified as a controlled explosive, as it's readily available at most gun shops.

This case will hinge on intent and what they find on his computer and phone, not what they found in the van.

11. After reading up on tannerite (and watching videos), I can't believe that stuff is easily available

Any idea how much that stuff costs? I would search, but I don't want to be put on any lists.

13. Around $5/lb. Really cheap for what it does

I've never used it, never want to, and think it should be illegal. But, it's sold as a two-part mix, so it's not legally an explosive in the store.

But the article says it was an inheritance.

21. Tannerite

That's really a conflagrating binary. It's not a high explosive, so I'm guessing this guy was planning a pipe bomb.
Trapping the energy in a pipe & creating shrapnel is the only simple way to make tannerite a bomb.
It's sort of like a high velocity thermite.
It will boom but not a huge shock or pressure wave.
For those of you that have ever seen "Top Shot", the targets that go boom when hit by a bullet are loaded with tannerite. It's high velocity impact sensitive. Hitting it with a hammer won't trigger it.
It's actually not that easy to detonate, so I'm guessing there were other explosives planned as an initiator.
A firecracker might work. Not sure.

25. There will be more, many many more like this

The weak cult followers are unraveling and they are impressionable individuals.

Expect more unexpected Jihad violence from the American Taliban.

Think about it. Their entire world view, the one they've held since childhood has been exposed as a lie. Everything they thought is being proven to be false, wrong, evil, and indignant towards others. They are waking up to the realization that they are the monsters they've warned others to look out for and to arm themselves against. I imagine many are having nervous break downs and are cracking mentally.

Be safe out there. This is the new normal for a while until these people are discovered or snap out of if on their own.

27. Guy is waaaay whacko. Wanted to "save Bernie"

 

“Should I kill joe biden?” Treisman allegedly wrote on April 15, 2020, alongside an image posted on iFunny, according to a search-warrant application. The application also details how the 19-year-old went to Wilmington, Delaware—Biden’s hometown—on at least one occasion and discussed his need to “save” Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
