#9 More details from Stephen Green:

This is turning into kind of a big deal, as they say.

Except...

Hmmm. ABC News hears it wasn’t an explosive device after all, and that it wasn’t actually at the Clinton house:
Preliminary investigations suggest the package was not an explosive device and that it was found near, not on, the Clintons’ property in the Westchester County town of Chappaqua.

Investigators are trying to determine if the package was a hoax, or if concern about it was the result of nervousness.


That would be good news … except for the bad reporting.

Update: NBC now reports “near” too:
Police in New Castle, New York, said they are investigating a suspicious package found early Wednesday morning near the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Sgt. Jeffrey Merritt told NBC News officers are working with the Secret Service and the FBI, but declined to release further details.


If the investigation is from an abundance of caution, well … good. That’s exactly what we’d expect. But reporting it as a “bomb” and at the Clinton home would be a huge error.

So what we have here is a possible attempted triple attack, but the near-certainty of bad reporting.

Do you get the feeling that reporters want so badly for the Right to be politically violent, that they're allowing their feelings to corrupt what should be straight-forward reports?

#10 Official Secret Service statement:

CLARIFICATION: At this time the Secret Service has intercepted TWO suspicious packages - one in NY and one in D.C. Reports of a third intercepted package addressed to the WH are incorrect.

You mean like how they call for rumors and obvious lies on every real shooting? Like how they still can't accept a Communist killed Kennedy?

Proof they're Republican bombs? Being so much less experienced at such things than Dems, it makes sense they'd be duds.

#21 Apparently one was sent to Maxine Waters. Cuomo tried to get into the act, too. In a mid-day press conference in front of New York's Time Warner Center, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that his office was sent a "device."
An NYPD official now says the suspicious package in question has since been deemed safe.
The source describes it as an informational package that contained literature.

#22 They screwed up on Maxine's IED - they sent it to an address in her district, when everyone knows she doesn't live in that district. She's too good for it

#25 Skidmark’s Daily Mail article has photos of the device and the envelope sent to CNN. It wppears a workmanlike job, if basic, though I am nit qualified to judge more than that. The article was last updated at 4:08 pm EDT, with the following key points:

  • Secret Service said Wednesday they intercepted two packages en route to Obama's Washington home and Hillary Clinton's New York residence

  • Another suspicious package was also discovered Wednesday at the Time Warner Center in New York where CNN's newsroom is located

  • Authorities have described the devices as 'pipe bombs' that were rudimentary but functional

  • Investigators believe the devices are all similar to a small pipe bomb found at billionaire George Soros' home in New York on Monday

  • Other intercepted devices have also been reported that targeted Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, California congresswoman Maxine Waters and former Attorney General Eric Holder

  • The packages that were intercepted all had Schultz's office listed as a return address

  • Earlier, a law enforcement source said they believed there had also been a package intercepted for the White House but Secret Service later denied it

  • The White House issued a statement regarding the devices condemning the 'violent attacks'

  • Those targeted are among Trump's biggest political enemies and have been subjected to his ire on Twitter

#28 Maybe someone finally snapped after all the Antifa, the Kavanaugh debacle, the "kick them", and all Maxipad Waters incitement to riot, and the Dems in general encouraging mob violence.

Sooner or later it will happen. The big difference is that it already has happened to the conservatives but the press really didn't care enough to cover it.

#33 Re: the photo in Skidmark's article.
Seen over at Small Dead Animals:

A few observations from a former bomb disposal officer (i.e. Me):

1. Proper pipe bombs don't have wires connected to both ends. That's dumb.

#34 And they all arrived on the same day? I don't know how predictable all these mail districts are, but I don't think I could get that many packages delivered on the same day just within 60 miles of here.

#35 False Flag to allow for the need to have "conservative violence" as an offset for the read left behavior. This lets the talking heads have something to use, angers the flagging lefty base, and diverts everything from the horrendous impact of the caravan imagery on the upcoming election. Desperation time as they see even the house slipping away and take desperate steps to shift the narrative...

#38 Debra Wazzerman Shultz return address added credibility since John Brennan contributes to NBC; not CNN. Shultz would miss this type of detail since she was dumb enough to hire Pakistani IT guys.

#39 I first washed up in Washington in 2017,
Dropped off on Pennsylvania Ave. by someone's limousine,
But the swampies got suspicious when I bought a bunch of clocks
And went round to deliver 'em all to the Dems, dressed up as Mister Fawkes.

Next morning in the twitterverse I caught a lot of heat,
Or, rather, smoke: Failed Mail Kabooms! Deplorable Defeat!
Said the judge, "I'm going to charge you with the possession of these devices...
But the Party profoundly appreciates such noble sacrifices!"

Says I to him, "Your honour, if you'll give me half a sec,
I'll show you how I nearly blew you feckers up, by Kek,
Though the ACME Fake Kabooms I used were basically inert,
And the victims of my fatal hate remain, alas, unhurt."

Grins the judge, "No time for that, my man, I've got another plan
To blame on you, your Trumpkin pals, the Nazis, and the Klan.
Tonight, you'll don a gold toupee, and in a well lit box,
Deposit umpteen envelopes block-printed, 'TOXIC POX!'"
