The Democrat who was recently arrested for threatening to kill Sen. Rand Paul and his family with an ax was a Barack Obama fan and used the hashtag #Obamaforlife in some of his threats.
Police arrested Democrat Nathanial Blaine Luffman. Paul said that the suspect had left threats threatening to chop up his family with an ax. Officials say Luffman left the messages at Paul’s Kentucky offices.
According to Mercury News, Luffman is from Berkeley, California, but also lived in Kentucky in the past.
Luffman also made threats against another official, threatening himas well.
Nathanial Blaine Luffman — a former Kentucky resident, according to his Facebook page — was arrested June 27 and is being taken to Oregon to face a single charge of retaliating against a federal official by way of threats. It carries a maximum term of 10 years in prison.
While Luffman’s alleged victim is not named in court records describing the threats, U.S. Capitol Police describe him as an Oregon elected official with an office at a federal building in Portland. The court records also say the suspect has been associated with “other known threatening communications to members of Congress.”
Sen. Paul thanked the Capitol Police for their efforts to keep him safe.
Thank you to the US Capitol Police for their arrest of the man who recently threatened to kill my family and me.

But the paper discovered that the suspect also posted tweets using the hashtag #ObamaForLife and repeatedly came to the support of Democratic candidates.
Per Gateway Pundit:
In a post on his Facebook page on June 28, Luffman wrote that “today’s theme is #Trouble #DoubleTrouble I mean #BidenBlaine like 2020 Election #BornToRun it’s our theme song. You probably don’t understand I had to be the #Senator of Kentucky. It’s not about money or White House but my #Pride the idea somebody else sitting in that Senate Seat other than me #Unacceptable I just could not handle the idea too many #Hens to be had,” with a bunch of chicken emojis.
He frequently live streamed from UC Berkeley, which he claimed is a sovereign nation “independent & free from any and all over sight by any nation or people’s.”
Police say that Luffman also sent threats to other politicians, but those officials have not been publicly identified.
These days, incidents like this can’t just be waved off as harmless cranks just sending threats they won’t follow up on. After all, just last year, a hardcore Democrat loaded up his guns and took them to a baseball field and began shooting at Republican members of Congress with the hopes of killing as many as he could.
Sadly, when Bernie Sanders volunteer James Hodgkinson opened fire at a Virginia baseball park, many were injured. House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R, LA) was so badly shot up that he has permanent injuries.
In fact, Sen. Paul himself was on the baseball field that day and he was also attacked by his crazed Democratic neighbor, who cracked six of the Senator’s ribs and leaving in danger of death. It took him months to recover.
