With the bomb packages that were sent to a bunch of Democrats and anti-Trump supporters last week, folks all across the country have been on high alert, looking for anything out of the ordinary that might end up being some sort of danger or threat to themselves and their families.

A suspicious package was spotted outside of the Duke Energy Center in Charlotte, North Carolina early on Tuesday morning, leading local police to respond and investigate the scene.

Fortunately, it turned out to be something completely harmless.

Officials say the call came in just before 6:15 a.m. from concerned employees in the mail room inside the Duke Energy building, located in the 400 block of South Tryon Street.

The package was described as being a small manila envelope handwritten and addressed from out of state to Duke Energy, according to police. Police and the bomb squad investigated the package, which contained a cassette tape by the band Journey.

Employees in the mail room notified police who cleared the scene shutting down roads. A K-9 unit was also deployed to the scene, police say.

The initial discovery sparked an investigation causing the Duke Energy building to be evacuated and road closures in the area.

The investigation closed roads in the areas surrounding S Tryon Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

While some folks might feel that such a reaction is paranoia in action, it’s better to be safe than sorry, especially if you can’t tell exactly what something is. We live in a world where folks will do crazy things for no real, discernible reason, which means that taking measures like this isn’t paranoid, it’s simply the kind of caution necessary to live in the twenty-first century.

Revealed: House Ethics Committee to Investigate Rashida Tlaib for Misusing Campaign Funds

It’s just Democrat after Democrat…

Freshman Democrat Socialist Rashida Tlaib (MI) could potentially be in big trouble. Even if she’s guilty, though, liberals will likely only give her a slap on the wrist and claim she’s the victim of a right-wing smear campaign. Until then, the openly anti-Semitic Muslim continues giving the American people plenty to think about. It’s just too bad the mainstream media will continue to give her a pass. From Fox News: The House Ethics Committee on Thursday released a trove of striking internal campaign communications sent in 2018 by Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, in which Tlaib urgently requested money from her congressional campaign to defray personal expenses — and, a government watchdog said, possibly violated federal law in the process. The document dump was related to the committee’s ongoing ethics probe into Tlaib, which the panel said on Thursday would be “expanded” based on a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE). Texts and emails released by the Ethics Committee show Tlaib frantically contacting members of her staff for financial help.

She noted, “There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports.…

Bill Clinton’s Advice to Trump: Ignore Impeachment, Pass Gun Control As Soon As Possible

Spoiler alert: it’s bad advice…

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) said last night what all conservatives were thinking from the start: Democrats are looking to impeach President Trump because they know they can’t win in 2020. They are looking for any excuse to get him out of office, now that Russia and other hoaxes have failed. It’s truly stunning to witness how far the Democrat Party is willing to go to sabotage a duly-elected president in a time when unemployment is at an all-time low and the economy is thriving. Then again, this party is comprised of people who believe it’s acceptable, even cool, to murder a baby. Here’s impeached President Bill Clinton’s advice for Donald Trump. Spoiler alert: it’s not good advice. From Breitbart: On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s special coverage of the shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, CA, former President Bill Clinton told President Donald Trump to ignore impeachment and pass gun control. Commenting on when the Republican-controlled House impeached him in 1998, Clinton said, “Look at how much we got done in 1998 and 1999 and even in ‘97. We had very productive actions in all three years. The only really tough year we had after the Republicans won the Congress, was ‘95 to the beginning of ‘96—when they shut the government down twice. Once the public rendered judgment on what they thought should be done, I kept working with them. That’s just an excuse.” Monica’s boyfriend added, “My message would be, look, you got hired to do a job. Every day’s an opportunity to make something good happen. And I would say, I’ve got lawyers and staff people handling this impeachment inquiry, and they should just have at it. Meanwhile, I’m going to work for the American people. That’s what I would do.” Hillary Clinton probably won’t run for…
