Caravans and bombs

CHRIS HANN, FORMER AIDE TO SENATOR CHUCK SCHUMER:
Hann replies to news of the caravan.

I think that this current wave of immigration plays perfectly into the Republicans hands coming at the closing days of the midterms. In fact, it should be taken very seriously and could alter it. I revised my house number down from 45 to 37 in the last two weeks, and part of that is Democrat 37, Democratic pickups because most of it is because of this.

I think it weakens our chance of taking the Senate because it mobilizes and energizes the Trump base. This is their number one issue. This couldn't have been scripted better for Republicans as if they planned it or something. This is -- is something the Democrats should be very concerned about. That said, I think that the Democratic base is very motivated to get out and vote in this election. And I think when the Democratic base comes out, Democrats win because they're a bigger base than the Republican base.

CNN later said it was sent by courier. But you don't need stamps for a courier, I'm quite positive, and if there are, red flags would go up. Also there are zero marks at all by the courier service. Either way, it was hand-delivered. But this is the only one with a picture, so were the other ones also hand-delivered too... all across the country?

Great way to distract the country from the invading 14,000 person caravan coming towards the US, which was riling up Republican voters to vote overwhelmingly in the midterms. This "bomb scare" will sure rile up Dem voters now.

I think it will end up a nothing burger

Predicit moves fast on political markets, and this triggered a R bump oddly

probably had more to do with early voting

Tom Sauer on Twitter: "Nailed it. Also, the photo doesn’t appear to be taken by a bomb tech or crime scene investigator. Bad angle, poor lighting, etc.

So if it’s being taken by a journalist... Why would they let them near a “live” pipe bomb???… https://t.co/k1jYdIVjIC"

2 more caravans starting up. One in El Salvadore and another in Honduras. When the trucks get the first group to the border, they will have to turn around and go back for the new groups. Didn't MS13 start in El Salvadore?

No Ms13 started in LA because they needed protection from the Mex & Black gangs. But yes they were Salvadorian.

I never knew what it stood for

Mara Salvatrucha (MS), also known as MS-13 (the 13 representing their Sureño affiliation), is an international criminal gang that originated in Los Angeles, California, in the 1980s. The gang later spread to many parts of the continental United States, Canada, Mexico, and Central America, and is active in urban and suburban areas. Most members are of Central American origin, principally El Salvador.

Just an aside. 10 days ago when packages were sent to Trump and his sons and one of their mother-in-laws and 3 of the 5 were found to contain ricin, the press had it on one news cycle and never said another word. Not condoning the bomb makers, but funny how one is covered and the other is. Incidentally, the V C were making better bombs than these back in the late 60"s.

Explosive Packages a False Flag?

October 25, 2018

By Daniel John Sobieski


Now the Democrats genuinely get to say “both sides”, with packages containing explosives sent to the Clintons, Eric Holder, George Soros and others conveniently two weeks before a possibly history-changing midterm election. The blame is already being put on those whom Hillary called “deplorables” and a package sent to CNN will be blamed on President Trump for those “CNN sucks” chants at Trump rallies.

Somehow it is all too convenient, this “October surprise”. None of the named targets were really in danger, although others could have been hurt touching, picking up, or opening a package. The same could not be said when a Bernie Sanders supporter showed up at a baseball field in Alexandria determined to kill Republicans.

Back then we weren’t supposed to link that individual with the rhetoric of Sanders and other Democrats who warned that if the Republican agenda was enacted, millions would die.

As the liberals rise up in righteous condemnation of Trump’s “toxic” rhetoric, we will be asked to forget Rep. Maxine Waters’ call for nonstop harassment of GOP players, of key Republicans being hounded out of restaurants, confronted in elevators and even in their offices and at their homes. We will be asked to forget the violent riots on college campuses to keep conservative speakers from speaking.

Of course, rhetoric does not justify a response with explosive violence, yet, as noted, for a so-called domestic terrorist attack, this scattering of suspicious packages seems too lame, too ineffective, too conveniently timed and doesn’t really pass the smell test, at least according to Rush Limbaugh:


Mrs. Clinton, it's your party, forgive me, that is encouraging this kind of thing. It is the Democrat Party that's home to all of these mobs. It's the Democrat Party -- Mrs. Clinton herself who said that being uncivil at this point in time is entirely proper and understandable. It's -- the time to go back to civility will be after the Democrats win. You've got bought and paid for operatives by Mrs. Clinton money showing up at Trump rallies trying to make them look like deranged Trump supporters. The Democrats are even paying people to draw swastikas on American flags and waving them around, made to look like deranged, lunatic Trump supporters.

And so, in the midst of this atmosphere, we have this series of bombs that were supposedly sent today, exclusively to Democrats. And it just -- there's a smell test that this stuff has to pass, and, so far, a lot of people's noses are in the air, not quite certain of what to make of this. This is just -- it's not Republicans that show up, for example, at the offices of the Family -- what is it, some pro-life group's offices, some guy shows up with a gun and was going to shoot people, got caught before he was able to shoot anyone, Family Research Center (sic) I think, yeah.

Republicans just don't do this kind of thing. Even though every event, like mass shootings, remember, every mass shooting there is, the Democrats in the media try to make everybody think right off the bat that some tea partier did it, or some talk radio fan did it, or some Fox News viewer did it. Turns out, it's never, ever the case. Not one of these bombs went off. And if a Democrat operative's purpose here is to make it look like, hey, you know, there are mobs everywhere, the mobs are not just Democrat mobs. I mean, look at this, you've got people here trying to harm CNN, and Obama, and Hillary and Bill Clinton, and Debbie blabbermouth Schultz. It just -- it might serve a purpose here.
Indeed it does. It’s called a “false flag” -- doing a terrible thing yourself in a way your opponent will be blamed for.

The Democrat’s genuinely toxic rhetoric had real consequences and if it were not for the fact that Scalise, as a member of the House leadership, was assigned a security detail, perhaps dozens of GOP congressmen would have been slaughtered by a deranged Democrat.

We cannot and should not forget that it was a Bernie Sanders supporter, inspired by what Illinois Republican Congressman Rodney Davis called “political rhetorical terrorism”, that inspired the leftist loon who set out to assassinate Republicans practicing for the charity game.

Bernie Sanders rightly and correctly disavowed the crimes of a volunteer whose actions he could not envision or control. Yet he and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have spent the time since President Trump’s reelection yelling fire in the political theater we call democracy, warning endlessly that people will die because of the Trump agenda, painting apocalyptic visions of planetary doom. With them claiming the Republican agenda is dooming the sick, the elderly, and the planet itself, was it so surprising that another liberal infused with the left’s messianic complex, would try to save us all by killing Republicans trying to implement Trump’s America First agenda?

Pelosi especially should remember her own words as reported by the Washington Examiner:
With less than one week until Obamacare enrollment concludes, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi used congressional Democrats' inaugural weekly address to warn of the catastrophic effects repealing the law would have on the public. Tragically, repeal of the Affordable Care Act will lead to death, disability and suffering.
Imagine that. Quite a call to arms for the assassination of the Congressional leaders who would impose “death, disability, and suffering” on the American people. Similarly, Bernie Sanders can disavow the shooter, but he can’t disavow his own inflammatory rhetoric. As CNN Politics reports:
Sen. Bernie Sanders did not hold anything back Thursday when he condemned the House passage of the Republican-backed bill to replace Obamacare.

"If the bill passed today in the House became law, thousands of Americans would die, because they would no longer have access to health care," Sanders told CNN's Anderson Cooper on "AC360."
The Arlington shooter no doubt saw this as a call to lock and load. And not to be outdone on the “people will die” list of GOP policies decried by Democrats is Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord. As California Gov. Jerry Brown proclaimed:

Thursday on CNN International, Gov. Jerry Brown (D-CA) reacted to President Donald Trump decision to withdraw from the Paris agreement on climate change by calling it a “crazy decision.”
Brown said, “Well immediate reaction is this is a crazy decision. It is against the facts. It is against science. It is against reality itself. We know we have to decarbonize our future. If we don’t, it is a horror. People will die. Habitat will be destroyed. Seas will rise. Insects will spread in areas they never have before.
Somehow shouting “CNN sucks” at a rally while complaining about documented instances of fake news does not compare to constant claims that people will die if you elect Republicans.

The packages may be found to be a real threat from an obviously unbalanced individual or individuals, but it may very well also be a false flag designed to reaffirm the Democrats' continuous slander against the GOP.

Daniel John Sobieski is a free lance writer whose pieces have appeared in Investor’s Business Daily, Human Events, Reason Magazine and the Chicago Sun-Times among other publications.

And by the way, guess what's also not in the news now, and that's the other mob that's finding its way north through Mexico attempting to crash the U.S. border at or near election day. That story is off. And, I'll tell you, there's another story that's not being covered right now, and that is the declining blue wave that was supposedly automatic and going to happen a week ago and a month ago, but we're not going to let this sidetrack us.

Law enforcement said that “some” of the devices mailed to prominent liberals and Dem politicians this week “were flawed and not capable of exploding.”

That’s not quite the entire story.



From Adam Housley re: mail "bombs"

Quote:
So here is the clarification on semantics on all this: the FBI Lab will make the final call on all of these. So far the belief is that they all didn’t go off by design. They were all missing a couple of components.
His sources are also disputing media reports that some of the devices could have exploded because of the powder inside.

Quote:
Some of the media is reporting they could have because of the powder found inside. It was an unstable powder...and again the strong belief is that all were missing a couple of components on purpose. None could have gone off this far.
Now, here’s where the semantics comes in. According to Housley, the FBI does not want the public to “think they are all hoaxes, because one could be real” and then “people might let their guards down.”

Quote:
AND.....Agents also don’t want everyone to think they are all hoaxes, because one could be real...people might let their guards down. And that might be the long game in all this. So again semantics...hoax may never be used officially, but all were designed not to detonate.

One of your "Deplorables "

what a shocker

Officials in Plantation, Florida, were seen placing a tarp over a van with windows covered with pictures of Trump and decals, one of which appeared to be a version of a presidential seal.

Utah man charged for sending toxic letters to Trump, other admin officials | WREG.com

Bob, this is one of your “Never Trumpers”

What a shocker

Crazies on both sides, I guess, right? One used ricin, the other made fake bombs. Neither are ok. Also last year another one of your “Never Trumpers” shot Congress republicans at a charity baseball practice.
