Feds Indict Ex-Marine From Camp Lejeune With Threatening Obama

Federal prosecutors have indicted a former Marine based at Camp Lejeune with threatening President Barack Obama before he took office.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's office in Raleigh said Thursday a federal grand jury has returned an indictment against 20-year-old Kody Brittingham. He is charged with making threats against the president-elect.

The indictment was handed up Wednesday.

Brittingham was administratively separated from the Marine Corps on Jan. 3, following a December arrest on state charges he attempted armed robbery of a Jacksonville hotel. He remains jailed in Onslow County.

The Marine Corps says Brittingham was a lance corporal who joined the Marine Corps in July 2007. He never deployed with the Marines.

    I accept that he is president and I don't care what color his skin is. I do not accept his politics, his policies, his morals, his childish swagger, his lame excuses for his racism or the Messianic aura he is attempting to cultivate. I know a bunch of stupid sheep are fawning and cooing over him, getting all tinglely in their thighs when he speaks, but this asinine display of America's lack of understanding of history, civics, government, business, social programs and moral decline have no affect on me. I see this fraud as what he is, a Chicago street hustler that has hustled 70% of an ignorant populace. The average American knows more about Angelina Jolie than they do about this phony "messiah". They weren't taken in, they were just taken. Idiots.

    Here's some food for thought, I heard this on the Radio and it makes some sense. The threat of terrorism isn't the bombings and the killings, it's the infiltration of the Muslims into "Major Leadership Roles" in governments throughout the world. Terrorist attacks are smoke screens, but yet the infiltration of the Muslims and Islamics are real look at Russia and other countries in that sector and now the U.S falls in line we have a President that is Muslim. hmmmm So pray for our country and that Christians will quit sitting on their hands and help bring "Our" country back to a "God Fearing Nation" I don't approve of threats towards any individual, but I do believe we reap what we plant.

    I've said it before. Didn't vote for Obama, didn't like him or his policy BUT he is now the president. Respect has to be earned you say? Respect for the president of the most powerful nation on earth kinda goes with the job. Talking such crap about the now-sitting President is nothing short of treason. I support him because the alternative is futile. I'd much rather have Obama as president instead of Biden or Palin for that matter. I still love you Alpha. You know when a woman speaks out loudly, it throws many off guard and puts them on the defensive. How childish and ignorant. I may not agree with someone's opinion but I will fight to the death for their right to have one.

    You know where most people come from, a person has to EARN respect. It is not freely given.

    Back on track, enough slandering. It's not that I care for Obama, because I dont. But you just cant make accusations against a president, It's stupid. And besides if something were to happen to this president, look who is in line to take the slot, any of them are much scarier that the current president. Just continue to work against this administrations dumb efforts by working with your reqresentatives and other correct meathods. Buzz-
