Obama Receives Ricin Letter - White House Webcast At 11:45 EDT

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Yesterday Sarin for Senators, now suspicious substances sent to Obama? CNN reports:

  • LETTER WITH SUSPICIOUS SUBSTANCE WAS SENT TO OBAMA: CNN
  • SECRET SERVICE: SUSPICIOUS LETTER TO OBAMA RECEIVED YESTERDAY
  • CNN says letter was found at off-site mail-screening facility, substance is unknown, cites unidentified Secret Service officials.

It appears the "suspicious substance" was not a balanced budget, but sarin toxin instead, as the letter received in the Senate yesterday.

Suspicious letter addressed to Obama has tested positive for ricin (as did letter to Sen Roger Wicker (R-MS)

And then this:

  • Capitol police are evacuating part of Hart Senate office building (first floor) because of a suspicious package
  • SUSPICOUS PACKAGE FOUND IN THE ATRIUM AND SUSPICOUS ENVELOPE FOUND ON THIRD FLOOR OF THE HART BUILDING. FOX.
  • CAPITOL POLICE ORDERING PEOPLE ON HIGHER FLOORS TO GO INTO OFFICES. FIRST FLOOR OF HART EVACUATED DUE TO SUSPICOUS PACKAGE. CNN.

From the Hill:

Authorities have intercepted a letter to the White House that tested positive for ricin poison, according to multiple media reports.
The Secret Service has acknowledged the letter addressed to President Obama contained a suspicious substance but has not stated it was ricin, a deadly poison.

 

On Tuesday, lawmakers revealed that a letter addressed to Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) had tested positive for the poison.

 

The Secret Service said the letter was sent to Obama on April 16 and was discovered at a remove White House mail screening facility.

 

"This facility routinely identifies letters or parcels that require secondary screening or scientific testing before delivery," the Secret Service said in a statement. "The Secret Service White House mail screening facility is a remote facility, not located near the White House complex, that all White House mail goes through."

Our take home from all of this is that the USPS appears to still be in business. Amazing.

White House holds briefing on this 2001 flashback event which can only mean a major military escalation somewhere, anywhere is forthcoming:

After looking at the pictures some more I can understand why some those guys were circled for interest but bear with me here. The 2 that are definitely in on the bombing is the guy in the white hat and the one in blue you see him with. Occam's razor says 2 bombs + 2 backpacks = 2 people. Those 2 military guys may not be part of the deal and just working security at the event. You see them with back packs after the bombs went off and the one looks to have an official pass around his neck. The officials can rule that out real quickly and probably already have. We'd never know from these pictures and no matter what they say there is going to be that paranoia crowd to say otherwise. I just can't wrap my head around the fact that US military ex or current would bomb civilians especially on Patriots Day. It just goes against everything that is ingrained into your head if you've been in the service. The facts will bear things out question is will the media report the facts or use the event to train the populace like a bunch of pavlov dogs that military = terrorists. I maybe a Libertarian and live in a blue state but I know the difference between the 2 and mindset that goes along with these things and have decent handle on how propaganda works.J-Q public in the matrix has no concept of it.

Yep.  They actually look like spec ops or SOF operators.   One is actually wearing a hat with the "punisher" skull logo on it, which if you know the people in the special operator profession is a logo that Seal teams started to put on their helmets within the last two middle east conflicts.   The other guy clearly has an earpiece with wire in one ear only.   Without any assumptions on why these guys are there it does raise some very valid questions, ie:  who are they?   Why were they positioned where they are?  Who are they communiacting with?   Who are they looking for?   Where did they go after the bombs went off?  And lastly, perhaps most importantly- How did they know to be there in that place looking for bad guys at that moment?  

At the very least we are owed some answers to these very valid questions.  Our government has the answers.  Will they let us know what's going on?

How did they know is easy enough. Facebook page created at about 11 am that morning. There is absolutely no way unless they are that in the stone age over there that their key word filters wouldn't have triggered a red flag that a real human needs to take a closer look on a public page on facebook with the word bomb or bombing then couple it with Boston Marathon. Everyone in these communities are basically monitoring facebook and all social media picking up new content as quick as the hadoop clusters can process it using big data techniques. I'm sure they knew almost right away something was up just by that alone, just a question of was it a serious threat or some hoax. That was their advance notice.

Regardless of what comes out, there were three culprits behind the Boston bombing:

1) "Caused" As in the US government's bombing and killing of men, women and children overseas has caused them to take action and retribution. See invasion and occupation of Iraq, Afghanistan and the bombing of various other countries.

2) "Made" As in the people from within the US government made this happen for their own benefit. See Waco and Sandy Hoax for background.

3) "Let" or "Failed" As in the government who said their "mission" was to prevent such tragic things from happening either let it happen so as to benefit from it or failed to prevent it. See Pearl Harbor and 9/11 (I know, could be "Made" too).

There you have it, the three culprits in a nutshell. And as for number three, "Let," I think that they, at a minimum, should all award each other "Freedom Medals" again.

Or did I think too deep?!               hujel

Safety from external danger is the most powerful director of national conduct. Even the ardent love of liberty will, after a time, give way to its dictates. The violent destruction of life and property incident to war, the continual effort and alarm attendant on a state of continual danger, will compel nations the most attached to liberty to resort for repose and security to institutions which have a tendency to destroy their civil and political rights. To be more safe, they at length become willing to run the risk of being less free.

written by Alexander Hamilton To The People of the State of New York

interesting that it was an argument in defense of the Union over a looser Confederation.

In a country in the predicament last described, the contrary of all this happens.  The perpetual menacings of danger oblige the government to be always prepared to repel it; its armies must be numerous enough for instant defense. The continual necessity for their services enhances the importance of the soldier, and proportionably degrades the condition of the citizen. The military state becomes elevated above the civil. The inhabitants of territories, often the theatre of war, are unavoidably subjected to frequent infringements on their rights, which serve to weaken their sense of those rights; and by degrees the people are brought to consider the soldiery not only as their protectors, but as their superiors. The transition from this disposition to that of considering them masters, is neither remote nor difficult; but it is very difficult to prevail upon a people under such impressions, to make a bold or effectual resistance to usurpations supported by the military power.

ironic that his contrary prediction came to pass in spite of him winning the argument.

poor Alexander.

Actually racist or racism is:

Racism is usually defined as views, practices and actions reflecting the belief that humanity is divided into distinct biological groups called races and that members of a certain race share certain attributes which make that group as a whole less desirable, more desirable, inferior or superior. [Wikipedia]

So noticing that they like fried-chicken, chitlins, grape-drink, onion rings, fish sandwiches, orange Crush, big asses, funny names, ugly fat white women with good credit, go to movie theaters to talk on the phone, to always be on the phone, bling, $5,000 rims on a $800 gas-guzzler, malt-liquor, MadDog 20/20, menthol cigs, love shitty music despite a rich musical history, to destroy their communities, spell EBT, jail, saggy pants, the first of the month, FUBU, sneakers, gold teeth, violence and love being the "victim" is not racist. Saying that I am superior for not liking those things is.

Now saying something like, "you can take 'em out of the jungle but you can't take the jungle out of 'em" would be racist.

I think people get sarin and ricin confused. Ricin powder isn't even that dangerous unless you smear it over the tip of a bolt that is going to be fired from a crossbow.

His staff thought Barry read the mail, or that their boy was losing it because others were getting more attention and sympathy then he was...  So they mailed some powder to themselves in some perverted effort to make their dear leader seem cool, relevant, or at least an equal opportunity victim after his laughable performances as CIC the last couple days...

The difference:  if the bomber was a Muslim they'll bend over backwards to say that we don't paint all Muslims with the "terrorist" brush and have no animosity towards peace-loving, good Muslims everywhere.

If it's a right-winger who was the bomber we will ABSOLUTELY paint all right-wing-oriented people and their ideas with the "terrorist" brush and feel rightly justified about doing it.  The animosity towards them and their ideas will be without exception.

Double Standard?  LOL

 

For the left, there is no “double standard”; there is a single standard, universally applied, and it is this:

Fuck you, whitey. No matter what the facts are, no matter what the circumstances are, just fuck you, whitey. Die, white man.

Obama Receives Ricin Letter

 

 

Make that two now.I do not know why these tards send this crap, as no member of Congress or the POTUS is EVER going to open their own mail.Besides it's irradiated prior to delivery ALL mail for Congress and the WH.Plus, it's tested by an outside lab also.

So this is just  fodder for the MSM.
