  1. Hmmmm….

    Now why send “bombs” that aren’t really bombs, because they don’t work?

    “Some Suspected Mail Bombs Were Not Capable of Exploding, Others Yet to Be Analyzed, Officials Say”

    “A nationwide manhunt is underway for the culprit or culprits responsible for targeting critics of President Donald Trump with crudely made mail bombs — some of which investigators say were so flawed were incapable of detonating.

    As of Thursday evening — several days after the first device was found at the New York home of billionaire George Soros — there were still no leads on a suspect in the case. It also remains unclear if their builder intended for them to actually explode or were part of some politically motivated hoax.

    Hours after authorities found devices addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden and one to actor Robert De Niro Thursday, investigators revealed the devices examined so far were poorly made.”

  2. Creepy porn lawyer’s friends at NBC have some ‘splainin’ to do. Like why they sat on info that showed Avenatti and his client were lying?

    They seem to have allowed their leftist agenda to override the facts. And given the public yet another reason to doubt their credibility.

    https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/justice-department/new-questions-raised-about-avenatti-claims-regarding-kavanaugh-n924596

    “When Sen. Chuck Grassley referred attorney Michael Avenatti and his client Julie Swetnick to the Justice Department for criminal investigation Thursday, he cited Swetnick’s interview with NBC News as evidence the two were trying to mislead the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    In the NBC News interview that aired on Oct. 1, Swetnick back-tracked on or contradicted parts of her sworn statement where she alleged she witnessed then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh “cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could then be ‘gang raped’ in a side room or bedroom by a ‘train’ of boys.”

    NBC News also found other apparent inconsistencies in a second sworn statement from another woman whose statement Avenatti provided to the Senate Judiciary Committee in a bid to bolster Swetnick’s claims.

  3. Imagine this:
    I want to cause a ruckus. So?
    I make a bunch of harmless packages that look like bombs.
    I go about the country, in one day, to various post offices and mail my packages.
    I haven’t violated any laws, but just the same.
    I am out of the country when these people receive them.
    Nobody knows who I am, but just the same.
    I’m gone.

    I don’t know what really happened, but that’s what I would do.

  4. Exactly, despite Hillary’s rantings to the contrary, no one was ever really in any danger…….

    “Fake bombs are not bombs. Fake news is fake news.”

    https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2018/10/fake_bombs_are_not_bombs_fake_news_is_fake_news.html

    “The fake news of the day has been disingenuously pretending that any those persons to whom the fake bombs were addressed were in any danger. They were not. Who sends bombs to people who do not open their own mail?

    As Roger L. Simon wrote, it doesn’t matter who built those little fake not-pipe bombs, the intent is clear. The message? See, it isn’t only the left that is vicious and violent. The right is violent too! Whoever is guilty of perpetrating this latest stunt is irrelevant; their intent is obvious. Demonstrate that there are lunatics on the right too! Great plan.

    Underestimating the intelligence of the American people is a progressive conceit. People on the left are confident that those not on their “team” are all troglodytes.

    We on the right cannot escape knowing their Marxist/socialist opinions, their plans for transforming America. We are subjected to their views and values all day, every day, in print and on television. But they know nothing of what or how we think or what our values are. The young know nothing about the truth of American history or the Constitution. Everything they have been taught is wrong.

    With the exception those educated at Hillsdale College and a few other places, they know nothing about the Founding of this nation, the Constitution or the Revolutionary War that won our independence. They know nothing of the facts of the Civil War, Lincoln or the truth of the racism that characterized the Democratic Party then and still does; it is the left that defines all of us by skin color and/or on one scale of victimhood or another.

    Ever so gradually, though, people are waking up to the left’s disdain for us all — black, white, brown, they view us all with contempt. The videos released by Project Veritas, however anecdotal, are instructive. Bredesen, McCaskill and Heitcamp are exactly the frauds conservatives always knew them to be. None of them should ever have been elected to public office. Nor should have been Robert Menendez in NJ, Keith Ellison in MN, or Andrew Gillum in FL. All of them are corrupt to their cores. They became politicians to become wealthy and powerful and each of them did. Yet they are small-time hoods compared to the Clintons and Obamas. They all lack honesty and ethics.”

  5. The narrative collapse continues. The more we know, the more we see how wrong Never-Trumpers and Dems were about this whole witch hunt.

    https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2018/10/andrew_mccabe_the_deep_state_henchman.html

    “The process by which the FBI and Department of Justice were corrupted into serving as political attack machines for the Democrats is finally coming into focus. In an article in The Hill that is today’s read of the day, a retired senior FBI executive puts together the evidence already on the record to offer a roadmap of how the politicization of these powerful bureaucracies was accomplished.

    Kevin R. Brock, who is identified as “former assistant director of intelligence for the FBI, was an FBI special agent for 24 years and principal deputy director of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC)” sees Andrew McCabe as the point man, pulled up through the career bureaucracy of the Bureau by his mentor, James Comey, who was, after all, an outsider political appointee in need of a henchman to implement his political machinations. Once Comey was fired, McCabe became the key figure leading the law enforcement branch of the deep state resistance to Trump.”

  6. Oh Ricky……

    Your NYTimes ” scoop” from Wednesday was just more fake news. You really should stop falling for it. 🙂

    Maybe Maggie Haberman should use her scoop to clean up the steaming pile of journalism she left on the NYT’s front lawn.

    https://dailycaller.com/2018/10/25/trump-nyt-china-russia/

    “The White House released a statement on Thursday evening saying that the New York Times’ report about the Chinese and Russian governments listening in on President Trump’s phone calls was inaccurate.

    “The article written by the New York Times presented inaccurate information about the President’s cell phone and its usage. The President does not have three cellular phones. He has one official government iPhone,” White House spokesperson Hogan Gidley stated.

    He continued, “This phone security follows industry best practices and is closely managed under government supervision in conjunction with recommendations from industry partners. The phone is rotated on a regular basis and is constantly monitored for any security vulnerabilities and attacks, in accordance with recommendations from the intelligence community.”

    “Lawmakers interviewed former Trump aide George Papadopoulos on Thursday.

    “Republican lawmakers who interviewed George Papadopoulos on Thursday came away from the hearing questioning the FBI’s basis for opening its collusion investigation based on information about the former Trump campaign aide.

    “What we’re finding without talking about specifics of what’s going on is that the whole reason that this investigation was opened up was certainly not one built on a solid foundation,” North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows told Politico after Papadopoulos wrapped up his testimony.

    “It’s hard to understand why the FBI opened the highest profile investigation in recent times into potential collusion by the Trump campaign with the Russian government that centers on a campaign policy adviser who been on the job a month at the time the Trump-Russia investigation was launched,” Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe told Fox News.”

  10. I don’t care who did it, it has to be frightening and unnerving to know someone took the trouble to do a potentially evil act against you and your children. The fact it was used to scare rather than actual damage, is just a facet of the evil–not really germane to the fact it was done.

    Throw the book at whoever did it and tone down the rhetoric–on both sides.

  12. Three suspicious facts:
    1. The investigation is being headed by that infamous Deep Stater, Christopher Wray.
    2. Jeff Sessions, traitor to Dear Leader, has said that the suspect appears to be “partisan”.
    3. The mailing labels on the bombs contained many humorous misspellings.

  13. So how can The Cult trust such traitors and Deep Staters as Sessions and Wray to do a good job on this case when they have been so unfair in dealing with your Dear Leader, particularly in a case such as this one where Hillary, Obama and Soros are involved? Excuse us for asking for intellectual consistency from the old Cult.

    Could Comey have tainted the investigation? What about Fusion GPS? Was there unmasking? Was there a FISA warrant? Were Christopher Steele, Seth Rich or the pizza pedophiles involved? What about “tapps”?

  16. I just saw a picture of the van the would-be bomber drove which wad covered in stickers. About 2 weeks ago I saw a car covered the same way— only it was laminated pictures and articles saying how stupid and moronic the President is.It was in the parking lot at Wal-Mart. At first I thought Ricky had made an unexpected trip to Chattanooga. But a man came out and jumped into the car and sped away wearing a red cap. I couldn’t tell if it was a maga cap or not.

  17. Poor guy. His misspellings helped lead to his capture.

    “The windows of Sayoc’s van were covered with images including images critical of CNN,” the complaint said. The complaint also identifies a Twitter account that law enforcement officials believe Sayoc used, and noted that account contained misspellings consistent with those seen on the packages. The complaint also said one post made Wednesday criticized George Soros, the billionaire activist, who two days earlier had received an explosive.“
