State police have been put on alert for a possible threat against President Barack Obama, according to a state police spokesperson. Lt. Paul Vance explained he was given information by the U.S. Secret Service to be on alert for a person coming through the state who may have threatened Obama.

Obama is in Rhode Island Friday evening for a private fundraising event. According to a White House pool report, he arrived in Newport just before 7 p.m. The Hartford Courant reports that the suspect is believed to be driving a silver 2014 Volkswagen Jetta.

Nicole Mainor, a public affairs staff assistant for the Secret Service, sent the following statement: "Information has been received by law enforcement regarding a potentially suspicious person and vehicle. We are working with our local law enforcement partners to determine the validity of the information provided."


This is just breaking...not sure of any other details other than what the article is claiming. I would be curious to know if this is a domestic threat or something along the lines of IS ISIL ISIS...whatever they are in this day's increment.

If it's just one fella...I don't think this will end well for him if he truly is heading to attempt to do harm to the President though.

Knowing the natives of RHode ISland, I can pretty much guarantee they will most likey screw up any plan made without even trying by just being how they are when they go about their day. Lol and If someone is "driving" with a plan, yeah that will be sure to get messed up! I'm sure other Rhodies will agree with me.

Americans haven't been scared and over concerned lately so the gov is ramping paranoia.

A silver VW Jetta? Well, we can rest easy knowing it's not a pissed-off redneck.

Maybe a soccer mom or a disgruntled IT guy?

Let's see what happens.

Let's hope with all the shoot to kill ask questions later episodes that there isn't a rash of silver VW Jetta shootings come morning.

Many "rednecks" drive VW's. You simply don't know what you're talking about. I've owned quite a few Beetles and one Jetta and know many other who have as well. Rail buggies(chopped down VW's) are also a big thing. the end.


I think it would've been more powerful had they said Toyotas('IS' drives Toyotas

Hmmm.

When was the last time they published an active ongoing threat?

Sounds like something IS IS cooking.

We have learned that what ever the government states, reality is different. The trick is to figure out which direction the truth is being twisted.

Possible? WTF?

I myself know of thousands.
But at 79 and considering how much I adore her.
I wouldn't just give the ol' lady up.

Threat to Obama?

If thats the case lock him up and throw away the key, because the biggest threat to Obama is himself....

Surely the Secret Service get many reports of suspicious people and threats to harm the President, I wonder why this one was leaked to the press.

Yep, the question is what did the guy really do or do they want people to think the president is in danger for another reason.

Did they say it was a male suspect?

Hmmmm......

Ticked off wife or girlfriend: "Hello? Police? Yah, just wanted to let you know that 'So and So' said something about hurting Obama.....oh and he's driving a 2014, Silver VW Jetta." *click*

Wouldn't be the first time I think.....

Hmmm.

Maybe there are hostile factions

It was an attempt at humor, folks.

I owned a Jetta once and I'm not afraid to admit it. Now I drive nothing but beat-up pickups.

You gotta roll your eyes at this part..."private fundraising event" Lets spend millions of tax dollars to fly Obama around to do PRIVATE fundraising. This is like selling 200 dollars of food stamps for 50 dollars cash.
