Alternative Programming

On a typical day, Adam Albrett, aka Muhannad Almahmoudi, prosecutes patents in Fairfax Virginia. Also an inventor, Mr. Albrett was granted 7,610,011, titled "Providing alternative programming on a radio in response to user input." On May 14, Mr. Albrett allegedly went in for some alternative programming himself, sending a nastygram through the White House web site.

The alleged message to the White House:

"THIS IS NOT A JOKE...Inform the FBI, CIA, U.S. Military and DOJ that I am going down to DC to blow the brains out of OBAMA unless he vacates the White House and I am going to shoot up the place and Rham [sic] if I see him... THIS IS NOT A JOKE...I am going to leave Mara at home with water and some food..."

In response to the message, the Coast Guard said it felt left out.

The Secret Service traced the nastygram to an IP address matching a computer in Albrett's home.

Shooting up the place is frowned upon, especially if the place is the White House.

They hauled Mr. Albrett away yesterday. He won't be back. Mr. Albrett is in for any entirely different form of prosecution.

Mara is Mr. Albrett's dog, who is going to miss his master terribly and never know where he went for the rest of the poor dog's life. Mr. Albrett's alleged brother and sister allegedly live nearby. So much speculation, so little water and food left for Mara by Mr. Albrett.

Mr. Albrett was born in Lebanon. President Obama was born in Hawaii. Both are odd places, for entirely different reasons. Hawaiians run cool until provoked, while Lebanese run hot until provoked. No doubt geoharmonic vibrations are a factor.

It remains a mystery why the geoharmonic vibrations between Mr. Albrett's ears went awry. Repeated mindless rejections from the patent office are known to hurt the head. Unwarranted obviousness rejections are particularly vexing. They can drive you crazy if you take examiners seriously, which you should never do. You might as well argue with a fence post for all the good it will do, trying to overcome all that "official notice" loopy combo hand waving. Everybody knows career examiners are as bright as bricks. You can't argue with hardened mud. Try it with 6000, see where it will get you.

Source: The Washington Examiner. Because the Washington Post was too busy reporting that Obama is "seeking to quell doubts about his response [to the BP oil spill], Obama insists he's been 'in charge.'" If you believe that, it's your turn to feed Mara.

CBS Channel 6 in Richmond Virginia identified Mara as "his cat." TV talking heads can't even tell a cat from a dog. You can't trust TV. But if you read it on the Internet, you know it must be true.

Albrett's phone number is 703-978-1288. If you'd like a visit from your friendly local FBI agent, leave a message.

You can count on Patent Hawk to bring you the latest breaking patent news, timely or not. Mostly not. Count on it, but don't hold your breath. You don't look that good in blue.

Ouch.

Hmmmm ... tried his phone number, and it seems to forward to Tea Party HQ.

Not sure what that means or whether anyone should care.

Maybe. But watch the inferences. A hacker, even a dullard hacker, can send any Email, including threats and porn, from your own IP address to the White House or anywhere else. Then the SS or FBI come knocking and the blogosphere lights up about your "activities."

One should be cautious in believing what they hear in the cyberzone, much less presenting it as fact. I hear there are some real hungry defamation lawyers in D.C.

Smells like a frame. Of course, guilty until proven innocent. However it turns out, Mr. Albrett is in for hard times.

"Smells like a frame."

That's exactly what I thought. But you'd have to make a pretty nasty enemy to have them frame you for sending a threat against the president.
