Their bomb hoaxes may get them some low information voters in the short run but the Democrats are playing with fire. Some of the oath taker and threeper types might just decide that if they're going to be publicly blamed for it, they might as well actually do it.
God, grant me serenity to accept the things I can't change
Courage to change the things I can
And the firepower to make a difference.

hahaha.jpgCome on guys, this cannot possibly be a fake bomb.

That was sarcasm... we desperately need a sarcasm font.


I'm no expert but wouldn't both wires coming from the battery be going into the same end cap which would be where the detonator was located?
Here's an Xray ABC news intercepted. Doesn't look like any thing dangerous to my eye; just wires and maybe an electronic component and the "pipe" looks like PVC to me. Steel Pipe Caps have a raised ridge at the thread openings.

That does look like PVC. No threads, the caps have rounded ends, and it’s radio-transparent (can see through it with x-rays).

Steel is radio-opaque.

The pipe bomb and white powder that forced an evacuation at CNN headquarters in New York City Wednesday morning were harmless, a law enforcement source told the Associated Press.

Meanwhile...law enforcement narrows down the search... :mrgreen:

56, arrested at a auto parts store.

Found from DNA. Previously arrested?

NBC again stopped all regular programming to tell of the arrest.

“The suspect is known to law enforcement, and has a history of making terroristic threats to judges, sources said.”

Wow!! They caught this guy. He was just as crazy as the guy that shot political figures at the baseball game. Crazy crosses all party lines.

How hard would it be to find a person of a certain political leaning, who has a criminal history of bomb threats. Then befriend that person and over time influence them and push them over the edge of rational thinking? :headscratch
Do what you say you're gonna do.

Trumpmobile photos.

Relative of Elizabeth Warren. ( that’s a bad joke )

Maybe we can blame steroids? ( another bad joke )

Or simply plant their DNA...

I know I could get just about anybody's DNA if I wanted too, and typically they wouldn't even know it. Hand them an envelope or leave it on a table they are sitting at in a restaurant- they move it aside.

Find a stray hair in their car or house, or follow them until you see one from the source.

I'm still wondering how these were mailed with incorrect postage, and the stamps not inked...?

His social media rantings.

At least no mention of a LTC.
