    Man charged with threatening Obama on website

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Authorities on Friday arrested a U.S. man on suspicion of threatening to kill President-elect Barack Obama based on statements he posted on a website about UFOs and aliens, the Justice Department said.

    Steven Joseph Christopher, in three postings to - Welcome!, said he planned to assassinate Obama in Washington "as a sacrificial lamb," the department said in a statement.

    "It's really nothing personal about the man. He speaks well ... . But I know it's for the country's own good that I do this," Christopher reportedly wrote.

    "It's not because I'm racist that I will kill Barack, it's because I can no longer allow the Jewish parasites to bully their way into making the American people submit to their evil ways."

    Christopher added that he needed money to get to Washington and that he did not own a gun, the department said.

    Unprecedented security surrounds Obama, who will be sworn into office on Tuesday and become the nation's first black president.

    Christopher, who is from Wisconsin but was arrested in Brookhaven, Mississippi, could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine if found guilty.

    Sounds like he wanted to go to jail. He can't be playing with a ull deck.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7
