Packages with pipe bombs sent to Clinton, Obama, CNN. By Jonathon Dienst.

A series of pipe bombs were sent to several prominent critics of President Donald Trump and to CNN’s New York newsroom, triggering a nationwide investigation and bipartisan condemnation Wednesday.

The targets included former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Eric Holder and former CIA Director John Brennan, officials and investigators said. …

The earlier confirmed bombs — like the explosive device that was found Monday in the mailbox of George Soros’ home in Bedford, New York — were all made with PVC pipe, which X-rays indicated likely contained shrapnel, three senior law enforcement officials with direct knowledge of the matter told NBC News. They included a low explosive or a pyrotechnic, as in fireworks, as well as timers — likely digital alarm clocks — to set off the detonators, the sources said. …

The mail bombing targets:

  • Former President Barack Obama
  • Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
  • Former Attorney General Eric Holder
  • Former CIA Director John Brennan
  • Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.
  • Billionaire George Soros …

The explosives were wrapped with tape and had some sort of device attached to them, law enforcement officials told NBC News. The devices themselves were packed with an explosive powder, and a non-combustible white powder of some kind was found, as well, in the envelopes. It was unclear how or when the devices were supposed to detonate.

Just before an election? Devices that probably cannot really hurt anyone? But it looks like the ugly bad right is victimizing the nice caring lefties? Hmmm, this sort of thing keeps happening.

It’s like a script. It happened before the Brexit vote (unfortunately Jo Cox actually got killed, but the circumstances suggest a set up), and before that just prior to the Swedish Euro vote (again, someone actually killed but very odd). Even the ABC’s dirty trick in the Wentworth by-election is in the same vein. The effect is always to increase the left/globalist vote, by a couple of percent in a tight contest. Hmmmm.

In recent years the false claims by US lefties to have been the victims of rape, racial persecution, violence, swastikas, burka harassment, and so on have become a torrent — Tawana Brawley, Duke Lacrosse, Trayvon Martin, “Hands Up Don’t Shoot, the Rolling Stone rape fantasies, and thousands of minor cases. The “victims” were in fact complete liars or even the perpetrators, given publicity by an extremely gullible media (‘cos it’s what the media wanted to say anyway).

Let’s see what turns up about this bomber.

Lion of the Blogosphere:

This has all the hallmarks of

1. Really stupid alt-right type (and yes, they do exist), possibly mentally ill
2. Devious unhinged leftist (and yes, they do exist) false flag attack

I predict that if it’s a stupid alt-right person, he will be caught rather quickly, because stupid means that he probably wasn’t smart enough to cover his tracks very well.

The longer this drags out without the perp being discovered by authorities, the more likely that the perp is a devious leftist.
