Former race-baiting “journalist” from The Intercept gets 5yrs for fake Jewish center bomb threats

(He was making up stories at The Intercept and then helping the Israeli Michael Kaydar gin up a false feeling of antisemitism here in the states as Donald Trump was about to take office. You guys remember that shit? I covered Juan Thompson starting back in Feb. of 2016. I called him a “race-baiting agent provocateur Mockingbird” back then and wrote about him when he was busted for doing the same shit a year later with antisemitism.)

from RT

A former journalist has been sentenced to 60 months in prison after admitting to terrorizing Jewish groups with bomb threats in a campaign to intimidate his ex-girlfriend. She says the NYPD ignored her calls for help.

Judge P. Kevin Castel sentenced former Intercept journalist Juan Thompson, 32, of St. Louis, Missouri Wednesday, and labeled the man’s actions as domestic terrorism. Thompson was also sentenced to three years supervised release after he serves his sentence, according to a press release sent out by the US Department of Justice.

The former journalist’s sentence is a year longer than the federal sentencing guidelines recommended by law.

Over a period of several months in 2016 and 2017, Thompson “communicated at least 12 threats to Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) and other Victim Organizations” in ex-girlfriend Francesca Rossi’s and his name. He also “made false allegations” about Rossi to her employer, according to the DOJ press release…

Race-baiting Agent Provocateur “Journalist” Juan Thompson Arrested for (Making Bomb Threats Targeting Jews?) Cyberstalking

by Scott Creighton

In the interest of full disclosure, I covered this phony journalist a year ago when he was fired from the Intercept for making up fake stories. I pointed out the hypocrisy of Glenn Greenwald firing him while the entire purpose behind the Intercept was to publish the fake “leaks” from the manufactured hero story of “Edward Snowden”

Juan Thompson was a race-baiting Mockingbird of a “journalist” a couple years ago working for the Intercept. He made up stories that were designed to help the race-based destabilization campaign that was going on back then. In one he tried to help manufacture a motive in the “Dylan Storm Roof” psyop by saying “Scott Roof”, Dylan’s cousin, said Dylan did it because he liked a white girl and she ended up with a black man. That is the most primitive of race-baiting stories you could possibly come up with. “Da black man be stealin the white womens” or “Jungle fever” or whatever you want to call it.

It was a total lie. There was no “Scott Roof”. Juan made him up. But the story stuck for a while and served it’s purpose. Tensions between the races were at an all time high for a while and it answered the question “why would he do it?”

But it was a total and complete fabrication and the Intercept eventually fired him for it, though they left the race-baiting story on their website for some BS reason (right along beside their BS “Edward Snowden” stories)

In fact, all of his BS stories are still up on their website with a few “corrections” and as you can see, they are all based on race-baiting.

Yesterday the New York Times came out with a story about this new rash of anti-Semetic bomb threats targeting Jewish schools, synagogues and other Jewish community centers in which they said that Juan Thompson had been arrested and accused of making many of these phony threats.

Here is the official Federal Complaint filed against Thompson on March 1, 2017.

It’s a 9-page complaint which seems to list only one count, or charge, leveled at Thompson which is for “cyberstalking”

A “Truther” Looks at the Juan Thompson Story – Fired by Greenwald and the Intercept for Making-Up Sources

by Scott Creighton

Glenn Greenwald is a hypocrite? meh

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

Glenn Greenwald’s Intercept, a news organization founded on the publication of the “leaked” “Edward Snowden” files, has fired an African American journalist named Juan Thompson for making-up stories, quotes and sources in his articles. Sound familiar to anyone?

According to the Intercept, Juan engaged in a “pattern of deception” relating to several headline stories over the years he worked there. The only thing they didn’t accuse him of was trying to make money off leaked emails from a pretend whistle-blower (How many emails? 50,000? A million? Glenn on the no-fly list? Glenn hanging out in New York? I’m so confused.)

I guess Glenn’s hypocrisy does have a limit. Either that or they had no more fake security slides to sell this week.

Former Intercept reporter Juan Thompson invented quotes, storylines and even sources, Editor-in-Chief Betsy Reed said Tuesday in a note to readers.

Reed wrote that Thompson, who started working at the site in November 2014, engaged in “a pattern of deception,” including creating fake email accounts to impersonate people. Huffington Post

As many of you know, I was declared one of the original “Snowden Truthers” by Salon magazine on June 19, 2013. Along with Naomi Wolf, Jon Rappoport and Webster Tarpley, I was called out for having questions about the legitimacy of the “Edward Snowden” story from the beginning. Digging a little deeper and exposing chinks in the manufactured hero’s story made me some kind of paranoid conspiracy theorist in their eyes.

One of the first conclusions  I came to early on was that “Edward Snowden” was a psyop designed to promote the notion that we had to “have the conversation” about the balance between more security and less personal freedom. As I had pointed out, just before the “Snowden” story broke with Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras (both of whom went to work for a billionaire at Intercept) hundreds of major corporations went to Washington in order to push them to pass CISPA which at the time was hailed as the Bill of Rights for the privatized security state or Big Brother as many critics called it.

Thanks to Glenn Greenwald’s fake “Snowden” story-lines, we now have CISPA enacted via the USA Freedom Act and CISA.

Juan Thompson has been fired from the Intercept because, according to them, he made up sources out of whole cloth and invented quotes from some real people whom he had never met.

It seems like Juan’s fabrications usually went to the “stirring up racial discord” side of things, but not always. It also seems he was just a lazy hack who made up stuff to keep from having to do the hard work of reporting.

Back during the Dylann Storm Roof psyop, Juan reported that his cousin told him that Dylann was normal until he started listening to ‘white power music’ (radicalized) and got mad when a girl he was attracted to started dating a black guy (radicalized and racist). According to the Intercept, Scott (“Fiddler On The”?) Roof never existed. Oddly enough, Juan Thompson’s bullshit article is still available on the Intercept website. Go figure. I guess it still serves a purpose as a reference to all those mainstream race-baiting articles out there featuring “Scott Roof” so they couldn’t erase it entirely.

If the Intercept management demands firing someone for engaging in a “pattern of deception”, Glenn Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill and Laura Poitras would all be on unemployment right now trying to figure out how to live on $16 a month of food stamps.
