Reminds me of September, October 2001. Terror attack, poisoned letters, suspicious package alerts everywhere.

Fun times.... Is it time for martial law yet? Obama needs to control this situation much much lonoger than anticipated (like past 2016)

It does seem like a method to disrupt the Congress workers from completing their assigned support functions for their worthless employers, doesn’ it.

Yep. I think this will remind lot of people of those days. Not a fun time, to put it mildly.

That does it. For the safety of everyone, send Congress home until after the terror threat is over...

Just heard on FNC that a ricin letter was sent to Zero.

I thought, “Yeah, right. They’re really starting to ramp it up now, aren’t they?”

Not wearing tinfoil-just wouldn’t put anything past this bunch of outlaws that are now in charge.

It’s all disgusting.

I have honestly been SHOCKED that since 9-11 more of this hasn’t been happening.

You don’t need some massive plot and airplanes and/or nukes to destroy us, a few hundred people spread evenly across the US acting independently after getting their initial orders could shut down the whole US in fear with nothing more than simple explosives like this made from everyday items like a pressure cooker.

Kind of like the whole thing was planned. And here comes Obama today to attend services to show how much he cares. I think it is funny he was and is friends with a guy that wanted to blow up people for change.

Ahh, yes. I recall our receptionist nearly refused an odd looking envelope because she feared it might contain anthrax. Turns out it contained a $38,000 check we had been waiting on for weeks.

Does not happen when they are afraid of you. That came to a screeching halt on Nov. 6.

Yeah. Me too. I got delayed a day by some guy bringing electric bagpipes through airport security. Alarms went off, dogs came out, door to jetways slammed shut, building evacuated.

Hypervigilant. Condition red. People can sustain that for only so long.

Someone sending a letter to the Pres would not expect him to open it personally, you’d think.

That is not the intent. It's the disruption and the insertion of fear and the following demands to DO SOMETHING so "this" never happens again.

That is the second event where Republican senators have been targeted in the last 24 hours.

Wonder if "Chrissy" is going to speculate on the culprits?

OMG - someone I know was also delayed at the airport by - BAGPIPES!

I always suspected they were secretly beings from another planet that were screaming in agony as you squoze them. (at least thats how it sounds)

Now there is an idea worth consideration...

You know, I hear the President and SCOTUS may be at risk as well. Just to be on the safe side...

Electric bagpipes. Packed in a PVC pipe for transportation, plugged at both ends, wires and circuitboard(s) involved. X-ray technician hit the BigRedButton, and that was it.

Exactly.

Remembering the resources LA County Sheriff Dept and others used for that ONE rogue cop comes to mind.

Urbansurvival...
Hitt Effect (or false flag event)......
First noted by astroecon whiz Bob Hitt. The idea is simple: When the public is starting to whip itself up into a frenzy over the wrong thing [e.g. the market and the Depression unfolding....Take yesterday - the coincidence of it is undeniable: Market was down more than 200 and the decline speeding up. And worse - from a technical standpoint - the five-minute volume numbers which had been running 2-2.5 million shares (every five minutes), saw a 14-million share dump in the final five minutes. ] all that’s needed is a properly sized emotionally impacting event to ‘switch the panic off by, as Hitt explained it back when “…diverting that emotional energy somewhere else…” (a distraction, i.e., "look over there!")

Oh yeah. The whole prepper thing started because of oboma. There's even prepper shows on TV giving survival advice. The prepper thing has gotten huge.
The cold war and the threat of nukes from the Russian president was the last time people were this concerned. Today, they're prepping out of fear of their own president, and things are getting worse by the day.
