U.S.A.-( Police have arrested David Kenneth Smith, 39, after threatening to go on a killing spree. Smith went by the name “King David” on the Google-owned internet video platform Youtube. He is a radical anti-Trump liberal. His videos [ now deleted from the account ] range from claiming that Trump is trying to kill all Americans or just his transgendered girlfriend, and blaming Republicans for the Las Vegas shootings.

After an investigation by the F.B.I.’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, Smith was arrested on a felony charge of making criminal threats through email to a university professor. The most disturbing part of the story is the evidence taken from his Youtube channel where he had multiple videos where he threatened to go on a killing spree as well as other threats. Smith seemed to have been a leftist time bomb.

On November 2nd, 2017 the Orange County Sheriff’s Department executed the arrest warrant for Smith. Inside Smith’s home, they were able to recover nine firearms that were all loaded at the time of his arrest. All nine guns were legally obtained and registered by Smith under California law. Among these firearms were four shotguns, a Springfield M1, a hunting rifle, a revolver, and two pistols.

It seems that Smith was upset with a professor at Soka University in Aliso Viejo, CA where Smith graduated from in 2008. The anger appears to have stemmed from an incident in 2008 where Smith had disciplinarian action taken against him by the school for smoking marijuana. Smith seems to have had a long-festering rage about this nine-year-old episode. Police do not have a reason for what brought back up this event after almost a decade had passed.

Smith sent the professor a chilling video of him telling college stories while in a bathtub with a pistol resting on his chest. The targeted professor took this as a severe threat and contacted administrators at Soka University. The university contacted the police who then, in turn, contacted the F.B.I. The Joint Terrorism Task Force opened an investigation on Smith.

Investigators do not believe that Smith emailed the professor as a Youtube stunt to get views for his small channel. “Investigators believed the suspect’s threats were credible and an attack possible,” the Sheriff’s Department said in a released statement. It appears that Smith was / is mentally unstable.

In another video Smith claims that standing for the American flag is standing for hate. Smith, who is a big Obama fan, calls the NFL player who took a knee heroes to children everywhere. He claimed that the fans that booed the players were endorsing racism and hate. He then argues that standing for the flag is a form of tyranny.

In one of the most disturbing videos, Smith contemplates who he would kill on a shooting spree while holding a shotgun. Smith claims that shooting sprees are self-defense because he could not be an artist. Smith seems to think that it would be self-defense to kill someone randomly if you are a non-conformist. He concludes he would just shoot people randomly to be fair to everyone.

Smith also seems to have had a profound hatred for law enforcement. He buys into the narrative that the police are systematically killing minorities in the streets. In one video he talks about how police sign up to be shot by mass shooters.

It seems that Soka University has dodged a big bullet. Smith appears to have come unhinged after the Trump election. Smith’s threats were almost another horrific event in a long line of violent leftist incidents.

Smith is currently being held on a $1 million bond and has pleaded not guilty to making criminal threats.

@Oldvet, they may have to turn over their guns to have their pot but I have my own thoughts on that. I would much rather have my guns than a weed to smoke. The weed could kill you but the gun could save your life.


Um, the media “said” it at Newtown. Didn’t say I believed em. My comment goes on the top when it belongs on the bottom after the drug rants. Then the system won’t post any more comments – so, I can’t reply to the confused person who misunderstood.


What a bunch of queers. You believe that reefer madness quack. You believe the gateway crap. You believe that anybody who knows better is just stoned on mare-wana. The ones that are stoned here – concussion and all – are Janet, Vee Tee PayTreeOtt, Wild Bill, and Heed The Call-up to fight the war [while] on Drugs. Let’s see what you say to me. Let’s see if you believe that crack is a drug and Ritalin is medicine. See if you bring up one of the earliest school shootings. The one where the kids shot kids becuz they were NOT… Read more »

Newtown????? what Newtown???? Wake up …. it didn’t happen …. you believe it because it came into your home over the magical tv box.


I don’t believe that Newtown lost non-existent kids.
The media/medica ***said*** that Newtown had a school shooting, that it wasn’t their fault for not having a security guard, it was the fault of NOT using drugs.


No I don’t believe it. I SAID, at Newtown, the media/medica ***said*** there was a shooting, and ***said*** the shooter was NOT on drugs.


Um, it doesn’t say Newtown had a shooting.
The media “said” that. And “said” it’s the fault of _not_ being on drugs.

Well, well, another believer in everything the lame stream media has to say. Who told you such ‘truths’? Matt Lauer? or was it Charlie Rose? After all, they would never lie. (Well maybe a little). I’m sure you remember the TV time when the ‘greiving parents’ were interviewed on TV. Also, I suggest you check the FBI records of murders in the month of Dec. 2012. Look especially at the records for Newtown CT for the month, Newtown CT has NONE listed. Hmmm, maybe just a small oversite. Oh, and learn to spell, not just phonetical. I do like your… Read more »

@Lava, I believe that you can not make a rational argument. I believe that you are living proof recreational drug use interferes with the brain’s ability to think rationally. I believe that you are more La la than Lava.


Just another DEMOCRAT WACKO from Khalifornia. No surprise.


He belongs on the cover of GQ …. and the Journal of Reproductive Medicine …. another poster child for involuntary sterilization!


I know we will have to look really hard for any information on this, but I would really like to know what kind of prescribed anti-depressants he’s on.


Looks like a good Democrat to me


You know it paid by the Hillary and the Democratic Party


Since he did not have an “assault rifle”, this is not a newsworthy story by the mainstream media.


Funny. You are right. The name of his rifle didn’t start with AR so the left assumes it is a safer gun. Problem is the Springfield M1 is still a semi-auto rifle, except it shoots a much larger caliber bullet. It just doesn’t look as “scary”.

this is all part of the EU agenda. the EU wants the world population anti-moral, mixed brown, dumb,no historical foundation, doped up and most of all disarmed. watch out that the EU is getting the German Military as enforcers to push their agenda.we need to destroy the EU. THEY ARE GOING TO USE GERMAN Military as enforcement soon. all nations need to rally to the Visegrad group and stop the radical, brown, Islamic invasion that the EU is vomiting in the worlds nations. the educators, politicians and lawmakers that have sold out to the EU agenda should be removed from… Read more »


I’m not sure how you connect this article with the EU. The whole thing happened in California and nothing about the EU is mentioned. Maybe I missed something.

dava golin

the EU IS THE MAIN GROUP PUSHING FOR TOTAL DISARMING OF THE WORLD POPULATION. THEY ARE THE ONES BEHIND THE Universal back ground check. they want the DATA. THE EU WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO DO THIS. I LIVE IN Las Vegas. It will never be proven, but a good chance nut job so call left crazies are indirectly or directly being used to create events to steer pubic option to weapon confiscation. look up who disarmed the white farmers in South Africa. what you call the anti Trump left, is Brussels and the EU. KNOW YOUR ENEMIES NAME.

“F.B.I.’s Joint Terrorism Task Force”. That is so typical of the Fat Boy Institute. The Joint Terrorism Task Force does not belong to the FBI. Many federal and state agencies contribute people, assets, and intel to the JTTF. The Famous But Incompetent crowd usually only provides a speaker at the new conference after the hard work is done and the arrest paperwork is filed.


He looks like an upstanding fellow…………not.


More proof that the real danger is leftist Democrats ( redundant description )

Mmmm weed!

This nut gives all gun owners a bad name with his crazy rants and threats while holding a firearm.
He needs to be institutionalized for a very long time and bail should have been out of the question.IMO


No, he doesn’t give all gun owners a bad name any more than drunk drivers give all car owners a bad name. Stop falling in the Liberals narrative that lumps us all together. Guns as with automobiles, hammers and knives are just tools and their users cannot and must not be judged simply because they use these tools.


Zackley…. The Connecticut looney liberals are going after Remington for making the Bushmaster AR15 becuse it was used in the school shootings. They say the ads are aimed at the young or possibley mentally “ill”. Are they also going to go after Chrysler, GM, Ford, etc for vehicles that caused THOUSANDS more deaths, lots of ads with young people driving them.. Are they going after doctors tools for THOUSANDS more deaths, lots of ads for doctors, dentists, surgeons. Are they going after cell phone or electronics manufacturers for the deaths they cause… NO…. Alcohol (wine, hard liquor, beer, etc. for… Read more »


Rock…i agree except Lanza Didn’t do any killing….nobody did.


They just all died of heart attacks….?


Nobody died … the whole thing was a hoax


@Proteus: Why are conspiracy idiots so intent on continuing to open their mouths and prove how stupid they are when they could remain quiet and just keep everyone wondering?


Nobody died … you all drank the koolaid


Spoken like a true liberal ostrich … how’s that sand taste?


I always ask forbthat silly stuff called hard proof and you dopey conspiracy theorists can never quite come up with anything except more grand theories that only someone on drugs would believe.


I guess if you live your life with your head up your butt, you don’t need any special diet to lose weight …. liberals are so ignorant


@Proteus: Yeah, Liberals are always the ones coming up with conspiracy theories. Conservatives rely on hard cold facts and refuse to wear tin foil hats. BTW, how much did you pay for yours?


Mine was free…i got it as a door prize at the Hillary for dog catcher convention last year.

Johnny Reb

Pretty lonely in gaga land, isn’t it …. liberals will never understand the real world … when the EMP comes, go out on your front porch and watch it … it may be the last thing you remember ….


Well, how about the theory that kids died in Connecticut. Skeptics asked for cold hard death certificates. There weren’t any. I suppose you believe that crap about how publishing certificates will hurt the poor families. That time-honored practices don’t apply to kids. Maybe gravity doesn’t apply to kids. Anything but the possibility that the certificates can’t be published because they don’t exist.


It’s fun when you find a liberal without even baiting a hook …. it’s a lot like fishing for catfish … they’ll bite anything!


Sounds like a case of “Reefer Madness”? But no politician is willing to admit marijuana is a ‘gateway’ to other drugs and or mental illness. They just view it as another tax revenue source they want to legalize.


Hahahahahahahahaha go sip your highball and shut the f**k up.
Ask ANY cop and they’ll tell you……..a stoned perp is sooo much easier to deal with than a drunk one.

VT Patriot

My oh my, I guess we have a stoner aboard that feels getting high just makes him a ‘better person’. I hope that he doesn’t have any guns.

Heed the Call-up

VT, “I hope that he doesn’t have any guns.” You forgot to add, since using pot and possessing firearms is a felony.

Wild Bill

@Mike, He has as much right to express his views as your recreational drug using self.


Far from the truth …. Mike, you’re talking out your orifice again …

VT Patriot

And we all know what that sounds like, right?


@Mike – Since you obviously aren’t a cop maybe you should “shut the f**k up?
