    Just in time for Halloween comes a former male stripper, who drove a van with Trump stickers plastered all over it, being charged with sending pipe bombs to top Democratic leaders, a journalist and at least one celebrity, all of whom have been vocal critics of President Trump. The New York Post headline was the cleverest: "Caught Red Hatted: Steroid-abusing Florida stripper driving Trump van is charged with Dem bomb spree." The Post reported that the accused, Cesar Sayoc Jr., was said to be lost and a "sick individual" who is estranged from his family, but eventually "found a father"...

    Wrapping up a week of some tragic and absurd news stories it was easy to see the knives coming out. Two national horrors in back to back succession left many asking for answers—as is almost always the case. Two mentally disturbed individuals—one a Trump “supporter” (though his life demonstrated values far different from his social media,) the other an avowed hater of the President. Their support or hate of this President or the previous, or the next ten of course does not matter. The media will nevertheless blame all of it on a Republican President that most of theirs didn’t...

    Authorities are trying to track down a package addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden because it bears similarities to explosive devices addressed to other prominent Democratic officials on Wednesday, CNN reported. The network cited two law enforcement officials who said they’re unsure if the package directed to Biden is connected to those sent earlier to former President Barack Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton, among other prominent Democratic figures. A similar package arrived Wednesday morning at CNN's New York City offices addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan. The package was originally sent to Biden’s old address in Delaware,...
