Joaquin Amador Serrapio Jr., the Miami man arrested for making online threats to kill President Barack Obama while he spoke at the University of Miami last week, has a large internet footprint. Serrapio went by the stage name of "Jay Valor" online, and fronted a local bar band known as the Jay Valor Band. On his Jay Valor Twitter account he made several disturbing Tweets in which he freely used the n-word, professed his love for Abraham Lincoln's assassin John Wilkes Boothe, and challenged the Secret Service to arrest him.

"Who wants to help me assassinate Obummer while hes at UM this week?" wrote on Facebook last week two days before the President spoke in Miami.

"If anyones going to UM to see obama today, get ur phones out an record. Cause at any moment im gonna put a bullet through his head and u don't wanna miss that! Youtube!" he posted the morning before Obama's speech.

The status updates caught the eye of the Secret Service. They searched his South Miami home and found two airsoft Pellet guns. Though, they also found text message on his phone in which he wrote "I know i can b killed by this communist administration and im challenging them. Lets see what those mother--ckers got. "Hell yeah im a boss an the secret service will find that out soon."

But Facebook updates and text messages weren't the only disturbing things Serrapio wrote. Here's select Tweets from his @Jay_Valor Twitter account.

  • Secret service where u at! I threatened ur precious tyrant! Ull b sorry u didnt come lookong for me in a couple of hours ;)
  • Why can't all girls be white? :(
  • Sucks that theres noo genuine churches in miami! :( why are ppl such haters and hypocrytes
  • Ron Paul 2012! Cmon guys this might be the only chance for us to get this right!
  • Martin Luther King day: the day where black people forget it was a white man that abolished slavery.
  • Ted Nugent needs to be president or at least be vice president to Ron Paul lol hes such a badass.
  • Ron Paul 2012 babyy
  • Last time i got chased by monkeys like this i yelled the N word at a martin luther king festival.
  • "If we wanted a nigger who would just practice his golf game and not do his job we might as well elected Tiger Fucking Woods and not Obama."
  • If your not voting for Ron paul next election, I suggest you do this country a favor and not vote at all.
  • Who wants to go out and hang some yankees with me? Lets put some south in their mouth
  • Obama, how does it feel knowing assassination is the only thing that can better your presidency?

Serrapio's Facebook, which used the Jay Valor name but includes his real name in the URL, is semi-protected, but Serrapio liked several pages associated with Conservative concerns, including fan pages for Glen Beck, Bill O'Rielly, Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee, but had recently begun to like more pages associated with Ron Paul and libertarian causes.

If you're wondering why Serrapio uses the "Jay Valor" name its because he fronts a local bar band called the Jay Valor Band. Here's the group doing a cover of Journey's "Don't Stop Believing".



Serrapio has pleaded not guilty and will next appear in Federal Court on March 9th.

Folks may not like Obama, what he does, what he stands for. I make commentaries about the man. but he is still a human being. prone to shortcomings, able to error!! this fellow has 2 airsoft rifles. oh yea that will get him along way. this clown gives law abiding gun owners the reds!!! there should never be any thoughts or discussions about killing ANYONE especially elected officials!!! simply vote them out of you do not agree with them. I bet this misfit is not even registered to vote. He just sees an opportunity to hate and threaten someones life. Sure he wants to apologize. anyone would that actually gets caught!! I for one would be a secret service for any President!! It is a great honor to protect the President even if you don't agree with him or thinks he's doing a bad job. I am 60 and partially disabled. Can't get Disability or SSI, I need a job. Hire me Mr. President. I would love going after these creeps. I was in the 7th grade when JFK was shot. I remember how shocking it was. How could this be??? This fellow needs a reality check, probably about 10 years worth. FB is not the place to start a revolution or threaten anyone, especially the President or Judges or Senators or anyone period. I can tell this guy has some serious growing up to do. In 10 years, maybe he will. God Bless America for we are unworthy of your grace and love. God help this young man who is full of anger and hate and may have been abused or just maybe un-disciplined and childish trying to be a tough guy!!! God Help the President and all who are trying to lead this country in difficult times. Amen and Amen

All this has been expunged on Facebook now. I'm not sure about how that rule works. You need examples of this stuff to show what is and is not in bounds. Further, what is the standard on FB say if this guy is in the mideast and writing Arabic? I assume there are alot of people in the non english speaking world outside of the US say bad things about political  people in the US, engaging in hate speech, chanting death to America, and much worse. What is that standard of justice? We get to kill the really bad ones and leave the FB pages up so we catch the other rat terrorist friends?

""If we wanted a nigger who would just practice his golf game and not do his job we might as well elected Tiger Fucking Woods and not Obama.""

"Obama, how does it feel knowing assassination is the only thing that can better your presidency?"

Way to shatter a whole bunch of stereotypes there buddy.... Now NOBODY will believe that Republican supporters are racist, violent, illiterate morons.

If the Republican Party had any brains, they'd send a squad to this guy's house to 'take care' of him before he logs on to Twitter(Home of the twits!) and does them any more damage.

Also, Journey should actually sue them for ruining their music. That's worse than I played that song in High School, and I'm not exactly a talented musician.

Im sure many other people have thought the same thoughts he just had the balls to post it. Now quit being so criticalNot educated people, just morons. As for "being critical", it doesn't take "balls" to make threats against the President, it takes a complete and total lack of brains. I'm talking the kind of lack of brains that makes Palin and Bush Jr look like Stephen Hawking. As for your problem with Obama, what is it, exactly? He was handed this mess, and half the shit the Republicans are bashing him for were their ideas to begin with, such as the individual mandate and the green algae as an alternative fuel source, so if those are the the things that are pissing you off, you need to hold the Republicans accountable. He's not a stellar President, but he's orders of magnitude better than the "uniter" we had for 8 years.  Fishtrembleatmyname 1 day ago

This just reeks of a false-flag move to me. If he's following Palin and Linbaugh, there's not a lot of common ground to share there with Ron Paul.

Well, except for the fact that Paul is in the REPUBLICAN debate cycle. If he doesn't want people associating him with the Repubs, he needs to quit holding hands with them, it's that simple.

 Not true. A lot of RWNJ's are fans of, and follow, Ron Paul, Sarah Palin, Limbaugh, Santorum, etc.  The only thing the care about is destroying Obama. I watch the #TeaParty and #phnm streams on twitter.  A lot of that going on in those streams.

This just reeks of a false-flag move to me.  If he's following Palin and Linbaugh, there's not a lot of common ground to share there with Ron Paul.  Being a racist minority is just frosting on the cake.

He probably thinks he'll get out of it telling the SS guys that's what he did, too.

I think it is kind of amusing that in between threats to the president he took breaks to devote his love for Ron Paul.

But I guess we can go with people default broken record argument: 'The mainstream media.'

just because this guy is crazy and likes ron paul doesnt mean he does drugs. Ron Paul isnt even for drugs dumb ass. He doesnt think they should be made illegal under federal law tho. Thats leaving it up to the state to determine whether it is illegal or not. He believes that people should have the right to consume watever their heart desires. he doesnt think its good for you

You are very informed young man. I see no argument should come from anyone on this posting. As you have responded as a Guest, I will say Mr. or Miss Guest, well said. the young lad threatening the President has great issues. He may seem like a good Christian but Jesus said " you will heal and forgive and prophesy in my name, but I WON'T KNOW YOU" If he really was a Christian, he would make no threats. He needs to read his Bible more and really try to UNDERSTAND111

That is a low count on victims in the French Revolution but a nice stat set overall. It does not include major non secular warrior groups like Mongols too who were void of religious values, until they got a taste for Islamic warrior values. Tamerlane is a major example of that but he was Islamic in name only when it came to going warrior against Tamerlane. A "monsus mean man" as Mark Twain would say.

Mark, you're an idiot who parrots idiotic rhetoric other retarded atheist dipshits who like to think of themselves as some kind of "philosophers" LOL. Pseudo-intellectuals is more like it. Atheism / Secular Humanism is responsible for more war and death (and idiocy) than any other religion. A recent comprehensive compilation of the history of human warfare, Encyclopedia of Wars by Charles Phillips and Alan Axelrod, documents 1,763 wars, of which only 123 have been classified to involve a religious conflict. So, what atheist morons have considered to be "most" really amounts to less than 7% of all wars. It is interesting to note that 66 of these wars (more than 50%) involved Islam, which did not even exist as a religion for the first 3,000 years of recorded human warfare.

22 atheistic regimes committed 153,328,610 murders in the 20th century alone.

Country            Dates          Murders Afghanistan1978-1992       1,750,000 Albania        1944-1985       100,000 Angola        1975-2002       125,000 Bulgaria        1944-1989       222,000 China/PRC1923-2007       76,702,000 Cuba                1959-1992       73,000 Czechoslovakia1948-1968       65,000 Ethiopia        1974-1991       1,343,610 France        1793-1794       40,000 Greece        1946-1949       20,000 Hungary        1948-1989       27,000 Cambodia        1973-1991        2,627,000 Laos                1975-2007       93,000 Mongolia        1926-2007       100,000 Mozambique1975-1990       118,000 North Korea1948-2007       3,163,000 Poland        1945-1948       1,607,000 Romania        1948-1987       438,000 Spain (R)        1936-1939       102,000 U.S.S.R.        1917-1987       61,911,000 Vietnam        1945-2007       1,670,000 Yugoslavia        1944-1980       1,072,000 

Total from the 18th century-21st century: 153,368,610 murders.

What percentage of this democide was due to religious conflict? It turns out that religious democide doesn't even make the top 20. The total religious killings is less than 2%. In fact, the top two killers were specifically atheistic states (which had never existed before in human history).

The history of human warfare shows that less than 7% of all wars have religious causes. Yes, some nominal "Christians" have committed atrocities against other religious people. However, atheists have committed far more atrocities than all theistic religious groups combined. The atheist claim that (theistic) religion is the cause of most wars is shown to be false.
