Californian behind Mohammed movie is a meth-making fraudster who went by alias 'P.J. Tobacco'
Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 14/9/2012 | Daniel Bates

Posted on 09/14/2012 9:20:00 AM PDT by Natufian

The California man who produced the anti-Islam video that has caused outrage across the Middle East is a serial fraudster with a string of alibis including P.J. Tobacco.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula opened a string of bank accounts under assumed names, transferring money between them with bogus cheques and withdrawing cash before they bounced.

He was jailed for 21 months for the scheme after being caught by the FBI in 2009.

Fraud is not his only brush with the law. The Daily Beast reports that in 1997, he was charged with intent to manufacture methamphetamine.

After pleading guilty, he was sentenced to a year in jail and three years probation. But after violating his probation on 2002, he was sentenced to another year behind bars.

Police have been sent to the Coptic Christian's home as hides in fear of retaliation.

Over the last 40+ years the Brits have allowed in so many filthy knuckledragging moslems that nobody except,perhaps,Pat Condell,will speak a single syllable against them.

Californian Coptic Christians Distance Themselves From Anti-Muslim Filmmaker
Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/californias-californian-coptic-christians-distance-themselves-from-anti-muslim-filmmaker-2012-9#ixzz26SjLlXhj

The guy wasn’t a practising Coptic. The Coptics are worried that this will affect their brothers and sisters in Egypt. They’re already being murdered, raped, burned out of their Churches and homes for nothing. Now the Muslims have a socalled reason to do even more - even if it’s all manufactured. I wish marxistmedia would stop with the coverups for Obama/Clinton by putting the blame on the “movie”. Most of America know they’re lying through their teeth.

It all started with Obama bowing to a Saudi ‘king’. I suspect this entire event was orchestrated by the Obama administration as part of an effort to limit our 1st and 2nd Amendment God-given rights.

The film maker is telling the ugly truth about Islam, and the muslims are bearing witness to the truth by their savage behavior, which has not changed since Islam was cobbled together.

This whole story is weird.

Where did the money come from???

What did Steve Klein do in the army?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/13/steve-klein-innocence-of-muslims-producer_n_1882595.html

There is a claim that Richard Aoki- who provided arms for the Black Panthers - worked with the FBI. Or it could be just snitch jacketing

Point being - in this volatile mess - you can never be quite sure of the truth.

It’s become clear. Doing anything that offends islam has become equated with a CRIME. It is the duty of every attorney in the United States, who swore an oath to uphold the Constitution, to publicly defend this man’s RIGHT to make any movie he wants regarding islam and be protected in doing so.

I believe Alan Dershowitz would agree with me.

Liberal or not, what Obama has done here is reprehensible.

“Okay, militants. We’ve outed the perp. Now go and obey the will of Allah and go and kill him. Then all will be avenged and you can settle down and quit screwing up my campaign.”

And is it a mere coincidence that he happens to be a Coptic Christian - albeit a nonpracticing one? He apparently changed his registration from being a Democrat to an Independent. When did he do that...? Six months ago when the movie was supposedly made?

Bottomline: We’ve got to stop obama’s media from blaming it on the “movie”. Keep posting headlines reflecting any ongoing investigations and which states it’s NOT the movie - even if we have to repost a couple. :)

actually , should be “Heisenberg”:

Breaking Bad protagonist, chemist/chemistry teacher/methamphetamine producer Walter White, adopts “Heisenberg” as his alias. This strategic choice effectively protects Walter’s identity when his brother-in-law, DEA agent Hank Schrader, begins tracking down a formidable local meth producer known only as “Heisenberg.”

Exactly. This is a fake issue to provide cover for a very real hit team and a very real hit.

The hit team used it as cover, to explain their renta-mob which got them inside the consulate, the Libyan security men used the mob as cover for their own complicity. And now the Obamists are using the you-tube to divert attention from their own incompetence and complicity.

Thanks for the disambiguation.

I had initially assumed that you were referencing Nobel Prize winner and "creator of Quantum Mechanics" Werner Heisenberg, but that's just me.

Now that you have clarified that you were actually referring to this t.v. show (that I had never heard of before), I understand the humorous point that you were trying to make.

Do you suppose that most audience members "get" the inside reference to "Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle?"

Regards,
